Gambling 101

Gambling
The sure way of getting nothing from something


Lately, I tried gambling. I wanna let people reading this to not gamble coz' it ain't good. Having said this, you're most probably guessing I lost a whole lot of money. But, actually I kinda won a whole lot in only two sessions. Most people would actually tend to believe something called the "Gambler's Fallacy".

Test yourself: You are flipping a coin, and you are not cheating. You have just flipped 7 heads in a row. Is your next flip more likely to be:
HeadsTailsHeads and tails are equally likely The correct answer is 3, heads and tails are equally likely. Answer 1 is an example of one version of the Gambler's Fallacy (you think that your luck will continue). Answer 2 is an example of the opposite version of the Gambler's Fallacy (you think that your luck will change).

A popular way to explain why answer 3 is correct is the expression, "the coin (or dice or whatever) has no memory". It doe…

Life is difficult

Trust yourself. Create the kind of self that you will be happy to live with all your life. Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparks of possibility into flames of achievement.

Alright, it's been pretty long since I last blogged, but hell yeah... I'm back. Well, I've been pretty much trying my very best to put all the little pieces of my life which have been kinda scattered lately back together. Thinking have been done, and conclusions have been made. I hope everyone reading this will learn something after reading this post.

Life is difficult.
This is a great truth, one of the greatest truths. It is a great truth coz' once we truly see this truth, we transcend it. Once we truly know that life is difficult - once we truly understand and accept it - then life is no longer difficult. Coz' once it has been accepted, the fact that life is difficult no longer matters.

Honestly, it did sound pretty painful to me at first. Even the 1st of the 4 Noble Truths…

Big Things Poppin'.

Phew, long time since I last blogged and lots of stuff has taken place. Sunday(16/09/07) was Hari Malaysia and I would like to proudly say that I'm an "Anak Malaysia". Made it to the papers and news if you watched coz' of that! Well, basically there were about 100 students from various colleges and universities brought together by the Malaysian Interfaith Network to prepare a route map to improving Malaysia. Later that same day at Times Square, I as their representative presented it to Tan Sri Dr Koh Tsu Koon who is currently the Chief Minister of Penang and also the acting Gerakan President. After a really long time, youth have finally been able to speak for the country and I'd say this is an achievement to young Malaysians and not forgetting myself for being representative. :) You can read about it HERE. seen on the TV ads. They're literally extremely rare. Plus, people who do have extra ones actually sell em'. Funny huh? They're supposed to be uni…

I call it... Irresponsible!

Okay. What can you see here? If you looked with your eyes, you'd see a damaged pipe in a parking area. If you looked with your mind, you'd see an idiot who doesn't know about height limits in parking areas which broke the pipe and shooted off with his vehicle.

Well, who would've thought of that now. Being irresponsible is just too normal right now.
However, I suggest that you take this few words into thought before thinking of anything stupid now.
"What goes around, comes back around" :p

This one's so familiar I suppose. C'mon la... It's beside the Shell at SS15. This could be called creative or artistic. But, I'd prefer calling it stupid. What would you call a person wearing swimwear to a funeral? You'd most probably not call em' anything... Coz', I suppose actions would speak louder than words ;p. Grafitti is a cool art... but people gotta know where they should practise em'. I suppose, they should at least get an apartment a…

Aircraft Pollution

Pollutants from more than five million civil and nearly 2,800 military flights each year are destroying Earth’s protective ozone layer and stealing blue skies, while accounting for more than 10% of global greenhouse warming.

But wait. Isn’t wild weather happening everywhere? And isn’t jet travel responsible for significant global warming? Aren’t sky-high aircraft emissions destroying the ozone layer? What about the effects of radiation exposure and lack of oxygen on humans as captive as astronauts on long haul flights? Is zooming through thin air more than two miles above the Earth worth the risk to planet and passengers? Or should we be booking with passenger-accommodating freighters, taking the train, or staying home instead?


More than 4% of all CO2 emissions are emitted by high-flying aircraft.


What can you do?
Reduce usage of aircraft by using other methods of transport
Support world peace as wars can be avoided and usage of fighter jets can be reducedSpread the word We all play a role…
