worst thing - worsen inequality and social stratifications. preferred placements for alumni at primary schools. kids who do well end up in the same school. end up all the more well off ones end up in the same school. LKY when he was around, raised this as a BIG issue. if the people just mix with same socio economic strata, how to understand difficulties of all others?

second worst thing - kiasu parents. arms race amongst parents. race to place kids in best tuition, best eca, massive investments to support kids' ecas.

best part - the average Singaporean can speak, write English better than the average American and British. same for maths and science.

second best part - a strong sense of pride and identity with our schools. helping to strengthen our sense of rootedness to Singapore. invaluable in a globalised world.

at exercise wallaby in Australia, the showers is a field shower. you put the water into a bucket, pull it up with a pulley system, and then shower from there. half the time, the water is cold and the weather is bloody cold at night. our boys still shower. this weather aint nothing for our boys.

Do you know what's a good price for the Switch console? I was thinking of buying on Amazon but not sure.

when I last checked, prices at the shops were pretty much comparable with amazon. the good thing about getting from the shops is that the bundles are pretty good deal. if you ask nicely, some of the shops will let you swap the bundled games. and you can get some small discounts on additional games.

you can ask around the local shops, Tec Drome, GamesMarts @ PS etc. support local. give our local guys some business!

let's try to change the list to something else?

we can do it if ALL of us start typing the same "why are Singaporeans so XYZ" on google. let's go screw with google's algo!

very nice of u! lost my wallet at an mrt station before. never found it. no one picked it up.

IC was in it, and had to go do a replacement.

10 years later, an Indian worker showed up at my house, and returned the IC!

10 YEARS LATER? did you ask him how he got hold of it and the whole story?

IndefatigablePhi 22 points

said he found it in a rubbish dump! didn't ask anything beyond that. was just super happy, and super grateful to him. gave the nice fellow a small reward.

population is an existential problem for Singapore. with so few people left in Singapore, will Singapore still be around as an independent nation? how to sustain our economy? will we still have our own education system and our own JCs?
