    I think being rich or poor is a state of mind.

    Have enough money or not is a state of wallet.

    Haha. Now we're starting to get profound and philosophical.

    But seriosuly folks, back to the original discussion, I will have to agree that due, at least in some part, to education system (and largely, IMHO, due to parents upbringing), that people in Sg tend to have no initiative in finding things out for themselves. We've all been spoonfed! Everything's packaged neatly in Ten-Year Series, with model answers! Kids these days have very little perserverence in tackling problem solving situations, be it academic problems or otherwise. We always elect for the surest and safest routes. We must have definite answers and above all, these must be given to us on a silver platter.

    I wouldn't call this "stupidity" lah, actually. More of chronic mental laziness. Stupid people are however, a real problem. Especially those who somehow become our bosses.

    lol

    eh i gave tuition for a while, do you know now no more ten year series
    got 5 year series or something like that, actually i'm not very sure

    but during my tuition stint i realised that there is no understanding
    only blind following of answers and just regurgitating techniques
    quite silly, when it's easier to UNDERSTAND and therefore APPLY

    ah, you have given it a proper name
    chronic mental laziness
    i like it

    reminds me of the VERBAL DIARRHEA syndrome
    which undoubtedly, i tend to possess in my online persona

    It's not really the same. Procrastination is lazy to do. Always delay until last minute. Want to sh*t, then last minute dig hole.

    But mental laziness is when someone runs into a challening situation, they will first thing ask people what to do, and expect to be fed a textbook solution. If nobody on hand to help, they will just sit one corner and suck thumb. This one is want to sh*t, but dunno what to do.

    When there is no light, you take out your GN58 flashgun and f/1.2 lens.

    well said well said

    e.g. when you explore punggol
    you go prepared, with say, eikin's treasure map
    then if you don't understand it, you come back and ask eikin whattheduck! i can't find things on your map!

    that is fine

    scenario two

    you explore punggol
    you go naked
    then you start calling people to ask where to go at the last minute and expect them to drop a helicopter to ferry you around or something

    BADDDDDD
