Confusing The Confused

Why do they call buildings, when they’re already finished? Shouldn’t they be called builds?

Why they called apartments, when they’re all stuck together?

Why do sour cream have expire date?

The lights go out, but where do they go?

Why is a carrot more orange than an orange?

How do “Keep off the grass” signs get where they are?

Why do scientists call it research when they are actually looking for something new? Shouldn’t it called new search?

Mon Day

Today I went to Damai Specialist Hospital, my mum's workplace, to see the doctor. I have ear pain & semi-deaf on my right ear. Before something bad happens, better seek help. I went there at 8 am with my mum. And then I wait until around 10 am before my turn. It's a quiet 2 hours for me. So I went in to the doctor's room.

Addy : *Knock knock* Good morning, Doc!

Doctor: Morning! Have a seat. What's your problem?

Addy : I have ear pain & also blurry hearing on my right ear.

Doctor: OK, let me see. Alright, lie on the bed.

Addy : *Stand up, walking toward the bed & lie down.

Doctor: *He is checking my ear with a telescope* A lots of fungus inside your ear.

Addy : *Shock!* OK...

Doctor: I have some clean up job to do. Nurse, can u pass me *some thing* to me?

Nurse : Here it is, Doc!

Doctor: I going to clean your ear. Just relax.

Addy : OK!

The doctor using a machine to suck all the fungus & other "stuff/s" out of my ear. I have to say, that was the most disgusting sound I ever heard of! It sounds like interference television radio right inside your ear. After few minutes of creepy sound/cleaning;

Doctor: OK, you're done!

Addy : Thanks you, Doc! *stand up & sit back on the chair*

Doctor: You also have a small scratch & ulcer in your ear drum. You have to take
care of your ear. Having fungus in your ear is not a good thing. Prevent water get into your ear. If water get in again, it will grow back.

Addy : Yes, Doc!

Doctor: Use ear plug or something to cover your ear when you are bathing. I will
give you a ear drop & drop 3 drops each time for 3 times a day. Come back in one week time for another check-up. So, it's mean on next Monday.

Addy : OK, no problem, Doctor. Excuse me, Doctor, can i have an MC? *this is a

Doctor: Sure! Remember yo take care of your ear.

Addy : OK, doctor! Thank you, doctor!

Doctor: Alright!

I was so lucky to have a doctor like him. He is very friendly to the patient but my mum said, not to the staffs. Hahaha. Never mind. As long as I have a good impression on him. So next Monday, I will having a check-up again, which also mean, I going to miss another class again on Monday. Hahaha. It's mean I'm absent for the second time on Monday for HTM class. And it will be 3 on next week. But I got MC. MC bigger than anything. Nothing I can hope, just get well soon & having back my good & sharp ear.

A short quiz & some observation

Do u know who, in 1923, was:

  1. President of the largest steel company?
  2. President of the largest gas company?
  3. President of the New York Stock Exchange?
  4. Greatest wheat speculator?
  5. President of the Bank International Settlement?
  6. Great Bear of Wall Street?

These men should have been considered some of the world’s most successful men. At least, they found the secret of making money. Now almost 80 years later, do u know what became of these men?

  1. The president of the largest steel company, Charles Schwab, died a pauper.
  2. The president of the largest gas company, Edward Hopson, went insane.
  3. The president of NYSE, Richard Whitney, was released from prison to die at home.
  4. The greatest wheat speculator, Author Cooger, died abroad, penniless.
  5. The president of Bank of International Settlement shot himself.
  6. The Great Bear of Wall Street, Cosabee Livermore, died of suicide.

In the same year, 1923, Gene Sarazan, who won both US Open & PGA Championship. He died in 1999 at the age of 95, played golf until he was 92 & was financially solvent at his death.

Conclusion: Stop worry about business & other bullshit & start playing golf.
