GRRRRR. Arrrgh. And sometimes a travel log.

When you speak with authority...

... you better know your facts.

I guess you can give Discovery channel to the masses, but you can't make sure that the masses remember what they've learnt from it.

At lunch today, some well-dressed, well-heeled gentleman was waxing lyrical about tigers (panthera tigris, not 10.4) and how the females in the troop do all the hunting and killing and the males eat what's been caught. The idea sorta got the kind of responses from around the table that would make feminists want to burn more of their bras:

"Wah, good system, I also want..."

"Like that good, man..."

Except that the dude wouldn't be thinking of the tiger, who would be solitary animals and not as chauvinistic like the lion, panthera leo, the species he's thinking of.

    glad to know you're glad that i'm glad! i intend to do a diploma in mass comm either part-time during ns or full-time after (stupid cmpb saying i can't do my 6 month course, yet now they tell me i might have to wait another 6-9 months for callup), but which institution should i do so at? tmc, mdis, mshs or...?

    You might want to try a poly instead; TP's mass comm is quite new, but they do offer part-time courses.

    For sure.

    Would've stood in line for an autographed book by him if not for work that kept me away.

    Good writer.

    As for your choice of mass comm courses - maybe your choice would be to look for one that allows you to transfer to the poly of your choice after x months.
