And usually, they are not happy, and I can't see why! I mean, if you can put it one way, why can't you accept the exact reverse when I throw it back at you, in your own context?

    I do not mean to offend anyone, simply expressing my opinions, if I mean to offend you can probably sense it very easily, it will not be just in jest. Acidness is very easy to dish out.

    In short, lesser of two evils, which would you have?
    Just one thing to tell you, you started with the wrong context.

    And then the inventor of IS said,

    NO LEGS BEST! And promptly dumped IS into all sorts of lenses and cameras.

    why issit that humans always consider "IF"

    for once, consider "IF NOT"

    its easy to conjure lotsa "WORKABLE reasonably comfortable life" with an "IF"

    its alot harder to conjure a "IF NOT"

    i think in SG, its no longer "IF NOT" ......it has become

    "CONFIRM CANNOT!"

    Anyway, their current salary not enuff to motivate them ?

    What is the reason that they need more money to get themselves to work harder for the

    pride of the nation and ppl ???

    hahah.. I never mentioned that Singapore is a demoncratic society.

    What reason?? Answer is simple "Greed".
    But greed is good! Can you imagine a society not motivated by money??

    questioning a question doesn't make one brighter or more "convincing". it just show starkingly or glaringly how empty one is

    in SG context, (TO CERTAIN class of people) it will NEVER happen.

    even if it happens, its okay, they will form a "action group" to work at the problem.........



    no wonder everybody is getting employed...we need DAMN alot of action groups!

    It's hard to say hor.

    Wife and kids can always run away to another breadwinner, who is nicer, dishes out more love and also does not let them go hungry!

    Of course, your statement also applies to making funny statements without much thought behind them.

    And note: applying warped logic to equally warped logic is probably not very bright or is not very convincing, but it does have its merits of showing people why their logic is not really that sound in the first place.

    Cheem logic, I am tangled up in your web of reasoning such that I have somehow switched all my limbs.

    It is that powerful, are you Dr Stephen Strange reincarnated? =)

    Good idea! (I wonder if anyone else notices that the positions have suddenly been mysteriously switched, or are we talking literally now!)
