    "I'd rather be relatively poor, stressed and creative and grow old disgracefully, than make money from a job that has no tangible result"

    Now I believe in anything except that.

    ok, I am a person who does not easily believe in hearsay. Information get truncated, distorted or even manipulated along the way depending on the levels of tier involved in passing the information.

    I will place my heavy bet only when the information can be substantiated by recognised bodies or with valid proofs.

    I think most of us have played this before.
    You line up 10 persons, and tell the first person a story, then ask the 1st person to repeat the story to the 2nd person, and then ask the 2nd person to repeat to the 3rd person. By the time the 10th person hear the story, it is amazing how the story gets distorted.

    example:

    10th person: "who wants to go to geylang for a beer?"

    I thought Mulder was abducted by aliens and Scully went to look for him, thats why the FBI (and Fox) hired 2 new agents to replace them?
    (Or were Mulder and Scully retrenched by FBI/Fox?)

    ignorance is bliss

    how true the statement, and how much trouble has gotton people into when they seek to pursue the truth and what they believe in.

    look at what the world is happening around us, and sometimes even if you know the truth, what can you do to change it?

    in this case, being ignorant and indifferent allows you to appreciate the immediate things infront of you.
