Was in the midst of lessons today when the projector that was hanging perilously from the middle of the ceiling in the lecture theatre shook. And it shook. And it shook. And the lecturer thought that he had just acquired Parkinson’s Disease. Then it stopped…. and it shook for the last time. The project started to sway and everyone sitting underneath it started paying more attention to it than to the lecturer, to the extend that the lecture had to go…

Hey hey, don’t keep looking at the projector lah! If it falls down I’ll let you all know. So when I say jump, you all better quickly jump!

Er…. (^_^)”‘

And here’s a little something that was talked about during one of my conversations:

A friend well-versed in Chinese History: in ancient china… when there’s a long period of drought or natural disaster…
Me: Ya?
AFWVICH: its seen as a sign that the emperor has lost their mandate to rule…
Me: Oh?
AFWVICH: and the heavens are angry at the emperor…
Me: Hmm… do they practice 66.6% as great mandate then?
AFWVICH: perhaps this quake is like a way to telling the PAP that all this price hikes are getting a little too much…
Me: =S
AFWVICH: ha ha
Me: *roll eye balls*
AFWVICH: But… in ancient times… they don’t get to vote…
Me: Then?
AFWVICH: the challengers are all executed…
Me: oh… so fun…
AFWVICH: *faint* u have quite a morbid sense of humour…

    Ahh, at 7.15-7.30 I was driving at SSDC, so I don’t think I felt it, my brother’s friend actually had its shelves vibrating and some stuff drops, don’t know if it’s true or not =x
