    Tea, better sweet or unsweet?

    Sweet tea is better. A personn like me who doesn't even like tea, giving them sweetness makes me forget that I'm actually drinking tea in the first place.

    Do men prefer blonde or brunette?

    Based on my real experience, men prefer blonde or women with brighter hair. I have been dumped by guys who exchanged me for blonde women.

    Are airplanes safe?

    For someone who flew for so many times, I could say they are very safe. Technology has changed so much that the difficulties before are no longer existing. Problems do arise, but compared to the old way of solving it, people nowadays have better way of dealing with it.

    Stories Matter

    Yes, we all have our own different stories and experiences. None of those are less than the others. All stories are great no matter what and these stories give out great lessons that we can carry all throughout.

    Dogs or cats?

    Cats are preferable. But we currently have dogs, which is my parents' choice. I prefer cats because they are very easy to deal with. They mind their own business and will only bother you when they're hungry. Cleaning themselves is their best action. Their feces and urine smells awful though. But they aren't as high maintenance as dogs.

    The Power of Love

    I believe that. I am currently in love with a person who is also in love with me. But here we are, in a chase because of our past. I am chasing that person and the person keeps on hurting me. I always forget that I am loved, because I don't feel it. Not even the house that I called home made me feel like it. And I'm in so much pain.

    How many kids is too many kids?

    I don't want any kids. Its not because I don't want to be burdened by the kid, or I am afraid of losing my youth. I am afraid that they have to face a different kind of humanity. They will be living in a very polluted place. Pretty selfish, some say. But I just don't want them to experience all the bad things I have been experiencing.

    Are Ghosts Real?

    Ghosts aren't real for me when I was little. Experience proved me that they do exist and they can also move things which is very against what Science has been telling me. This one time, I was casually browsing my phone inside my room then I got bored and needed I needed to eat. I stood up and saw my cabinet closing in front of me. There was no one there, I have a small room, and there's no air that coul've possibly done that.

    Hit My 7th

    Hit my 7th, my most in a day. I think this is more than I have ever posted. It's such an exhilarating experience though it has been largely a one way street. I am looking forward to doing this on a regular basis and am very excited to get replies and have some enlightening conversations with people of different culture and persuasions.
  16. Very well put. I myself have 2 children, 1 of each and I am very thankful, blessed and satisfied. I always say I have 1 kid for each hand.

    Are Ghosts Real?

    I always tell everyone I don't believe in ghosts but nobody believes me after telling them I have seen a ghost. When work brought me to Australia some years ago, I slept at the house of an old friend from my hometown who moved to Sydney. In the middle of the night I was roused from my sleep by a woman gently stroking my hair. I glanced up at her. She has a kindly face but she appeared ghostly so I thought I was seeing a ghost and went right back to sleep. When I told my hosts of what happened I was told I was sleeping on the bed where someone died and my description of the apparition matched the departed one's. Up until now I can't be sure if I really have seen a ghost or that I only had a lucid dream of seeing a ghostlike image.

    The Power of Love

    I have heard of power being used for good as well as for ill. This fact is evident throughout human history where power has been used to foment wars and where power has been used to advance the welfare of all people. This same fact can be gleaned from the actions of men and women who wield some kind of power over another that we happen to encounter or observe in course of our day to day lives. For all these powers - power of coercion, power of persuasion, economic power, political power, etc., it is easy to picture how it can be used to uplift or put down. However, I am hard pressed to imagine the power of love being used to devastate the world. If that is at all possible, I am convinced that whatever damage it can do is far outweighed by love's harmonising and healing effect.

    Stories Matter

    Stories are meant to be told. But are all stories also meant to be heard? I will be very careful about listening to or retelling stories that perpetuate lies, encourage oppression or glorify inequality. It is virtually impossible for everyone to take heed of everyone else's want to say. It is hard to achieve even just at the dinner table. The press, book publishers, politicians and other mass communicators somehow curate the stories worth sharing and caring about. However that role has been upended by the social media. Suddenly anyone who can type and click is given a direct line to the world at large to pour themselves out. That democratisation of the storytelling channel is well and good in the sense that now not a single story is left untold. But that same power can be, has been and will continue to be used to manipulate listeners into believing stories that are designed to deceive.

    How many kids is too many kids?

    No kid is the end of humankind. One kid is too few to care for the elderly. I have two kids but I put the ideal at three for a sustainable human and ecosystem's growth. Four kids is where the zero-sum game kicks in as scarcity of vital resources such water, land and food starts to be felt. At the individual level, the fourth child, no matter how spaced with the rest of the brood, will come as a net burden. That is, the smaller added happiness is at the expense of bigger added sacrifice on both parents' quality of life.

    Dogs or cats?

    My family lives in a small house where we can only afford to have one non-human member. As far as loving animals goes, my son is the most intense and it is exclusively towards cats. Majority goes for a dog so that's what we have, a Shih-Tzu. Like my wife Majority (we call her so because she rules), I also go for dogs largely because of fond childhood memories of a dearly beloved mongrel. But I could live with cats as well. In fact, if I were a road warrior and lived a small room, I will have a cat instead of a dog.

    Signs of Aging

    Like the Moving Finger of Omar Khayyam, Time, "having writ, Moves on..." and there's indeed no luring it back nor erasing half a line or a wrinkle. Aging is a natural process and the marks it leaves on our body should be carried like a prize from a hard-won fight. I grew up in a fishing village in a sun-drenched country in Southeast Asia where older people are looked-up to in awe for all their burnt skin, wiry salt-dried hair and abrasive hand callouses earned after years of pulling heavy nets and scouring the open seas. Then I moved to the city for college and work where it is de regueur to look our best and project a youthful and pleasant bearing. This exposure to opposing world-views about aging makes me sympathetic to both the natural and the surgical schools but I advocate the former and shun the latter when it is done for no redeeming reason (say corrective and restorative procedures after and accident) other than sheer vanity. The skin care product I use on regular basis is the sunscreen.

    The Power of Love

    Wow, that is deep. Sometimes I actually feel like I am hated more than I am loved I know that may sound crazy. Remember that quote "There is always some madness in love. But there is also always some reason in madness. My wish is that you may be loved to the point of madness. No great mind has ever existed without a touch of madness.

    Are airplanes safe?

    For trans-continental travel that crosses vast bodies of water, like in getting from Taiwan to the U.S., I would say an airplane is far safer than any alternative means. Compared to an ocean-going vessel, half a day's flight is a much shorter time one is exposed to the mercy of the elements than a week or so of tossing and heaving in the Pacific Ocean. But then again, comparative safety of transportation modes can be a subjective matter especially to someone who is terrified of flying. I am not. I enjoy going to faraway places and flying to get there is a most thrilling part of the journey.

    Are airplanes safe?

    I myself am terrified of flying. The funny thing is my dad has worked for the airline for 35 years so we have flown our whole life since we were babies. Once I actually was old enough to realize what a fear was I have grown anxiety and panic of certain things such as height and claustrophobia. I also do agree with you I will only fly if I have to otherwise driving is the only choice and least complicated.
  27. Sweet tea is definitely the house wine of the South, but if somebody can brew it just right and you get lucky I may have a glass without sugar but it's very rare. I also do enjoy the occasional green tea for energy and health.
