Toilet Paper Catching Fire

There is a story circulating in Colombo Diplomatic Circles that a certain UNO Officer investigating or perhaps observing war crimes being enacted in his subjective presence was given a hot meal of Nai Miris (Cobra Chillies) as his taste.

The entree went like this.

He was told it was a Sri-Lankan top class delicacy that war heroes on both sides of the divide partake before their final assault.

Once you partake a little, then do not feel any other pain even due to gross injuries and it is also a mood elevating and quite similar to Onions for Indians.

He was quite take up by the introduction, instead of tasting a little he avail himself of a liberal quantity as it were a Dhana Festival in a temple and had to rush to the toilet.

Whatever, he did in the toilet did not allay his misery and he decided to pull a fag inside the toilet.

Moment he triggered the lighter there was a big bang and accidentally he lit the toilet roll too.

The flash of fire, smoke and the big bang alerted the security thinking that there was a bomb.

Surprisingly the young diplomat emerged without any significant injury or burns and in his flight and fright the burning sensation due to Nai Miris disappeared, instantaneously.

But he started running towards the back entrance and the fire exit.

The security officer thought he was a terrorist and followed suit.

He shouted stop.

I am UNO and BunKi Moon Man he said in his flight.

Eventually the security caught up with him.

When inquired he said there is a bomb in the toilet.

By that time one of the environmentalist emerged from the crowd and said his capsule worked wonders!

Everybody was puzzled.

Then he said he put a capsule of biogas making strain into the toilet before the meeting to test whether UNO officers consuming enormous natural resources of the friendly countries could produce biogas during a meeting.

And their shit or the scat can produce enough was his test finding with one capsule.

Now he is trying to patent his discovery to solve the energy crisis of today.

Mental Age, Physical Age and Credibility Gap of Classification based on Tests that cannot be Validated Scientifically

Children are different and their development physically and mentally are different and the variability can be immense.

The academic tests done are not assessed according to the age or sex even retrospectively.

The test is done on a single day the age difference of the population is 12 months.

A child who is one year younger is tested with a child who is one year older.

Sex difference value is 2.

The mental age variability may be as high as 5 years.

This even vary for even the mother language which is is almost automatically acquired.

Girls acquire language quicker than boys.

This is the function of the dominant but automatic side of the brain.

For example to swallow food or water one needs not have to teach even a dog.

This is not so for the second language which is the function of the creative side of the brain.

There is a time to introduce a second language.

Otherwise it becomes a translation of word by word process and that is not the way to learn a second language. The style of the language is never acquired.

This is what has happened to good old English. Every country imitate its its native (stepmother version of English) version. English is an international and universal language.

One need not be puritan but should not vandalize it.

The effect of the trainer or teacher is not taken in my analysis.

Parental and social effects are also dominantly operating.

 

Girls lag behind mathematics till their advanced level age and the nleveling off occurs automatically.

By then some boys are 2 to 5 years ahead.

That does not mean boys are smarter but is just the pattern.

Learning acquiring knowledge and skills is a pattern based not rote memory based.

One should employ the tradition of Buddhist monks. The monks fearing distortion handed down the teachings by rote memory, The writing down was done years later. By that time distortions have already taken place.

Simply there are two editions. We are still arguing about the sectors but very few practice the essence, the universal compassion.

This country has become the opposite.

Hate is propagated and encouraged in the name of fragile law of existence.

This is somewhat seen with computer competency too but nobody has done a long term study (wider availability of computer skills is only less than a decade and one cannot see the pattern of learning in such a short time).

10 or 15 year period is such a short time in academic functions and their assessment.

So test designed on a static moment of time is bound to be not a true assessment of the dynamic child’s potential.

Children are dynamic.

A test based on static nature has no validity. With or without a test some improve some go down and some drop out.
what am against is the labeling or appointment as a leader in academic skills (party politics does not apply here).

Learning is a continuous process up to one’s death.

After 5th year Scholarship has all the inherent defects which convicts 90% of some creative innocent children into thinking that they are not worth the mettle and is a national crime.

 

I had very few wishes and scrapping this test was one of my first priority if am given the mantle of education reforms.

One of the other wishes has gone by the wayside and into thin air which I stated 6 years ago and I wish not to repeat it here.

Such an amount of mounting stupidity in the system and at higher echelon having a intellectual discussion is almost impossible.

When dons are talking of virginity and their availability or non-availability for competence in academic activities is hilarious.

 

What little I know people who are engaged in healthy sex activities (men in particular) are forward in their academic activities.

Less being said about this is better except for proposing to appoint a Professor of Virginity for all academic institution including all national schools is ripe in this Banana Republic.

 

The criteria of eligibility except for having a Big Bunch, I cannot elaborate for my own sanity but I wish to sit at the Interview Board of selections since, I can still distinguish big from a small one.

 

This test which has variability of factor 12x2x5 x X-factor is over 250 folds.This is like saying there are 250 colours and which is superior. Children are all colourful in their own ways and every colour is beautiful for their parents.

The problem is when you make them only black and white.

That is what this test does. It is infuriating.

Where are those American trained psychologists who are selling education piece by piece?

 

It should be scrapped as soon as possible and I do not think even our grandchildren will not be spared to this ignominious (putting all others who fail to ignoramus) adventure by our education system, if things remain as it is without a revision 90% of our children are doomed.

 

There is another point I am totally against, the area basis selection of students to the Universities.

This is a violation of fundamental right of each student who sit a competitive examination.

 

If the government cannot rectify the difference and disparity in education and in the school system, they should pay some compensation for those students who are between the area basis marks and and above and not getting selected due to no fault of their capabilities but due to wrong government policy.

Let that be a healthy sum so that the particular student is able to go abroad and continue his/her education which he/she deserves.

Why only rich people send their children abroad?

University entry should be on first come first basis.

It should not be based on political decisions of proportionate representation.

It is wrong.

Why at least one student not contesting the education department on fundamental rights issue is amazing.

I wish a lawyer should represent this case without a fee from this student.

If I am a lawyer I would have done that by now.

New Wave of Linux-Multibooting Capability and its Culpability

Most of the Linux distributions are making a culpable offense by not recognizing other Linux that come from various backgrounds. 

In the beginning the LiLo had problems with booting other Linux distributions.
Then came GRUB it solved most of the booting problems by booting from any partition unlike windows which have to start from the first sector.

Linux guys have not put this weakness of Microsoft to light.

Now is the time to highlight why we give priority to Microsoft.

It is unfair in legal sense and open market economy.

It also should learn how to boot from any sector of choice other than Master Boot Record.

Nobody should give the copyright inheritance of the first sector to any Linux or Microsoft distribution.

It should be with the customer or the user.

It is a monopoly.

Why computer wizard did not expose this weakness to light is my grouse.

They only aggravate the situ by only recognizing windows and dos sometimes and invariably gave Microsoft the first place.

This is a culpable mistake Linux developers perpetuate by its taking the starting block.

Why give the head start to Microsoft?

I have found only three distributions doing it right
They are PCLinux (the new distributions now have a problem not including other format options – other types of disk formatting including DOS), Mephis, Debian, Suse , Mandriva, Redhat and Fedora.

Redhat had the best GRUB including RAIDs .

Still SuSe has the best partition tool, even though it restrict itself to 15 partitions.

Why I do not know?

All the other Live and installable CDs I checked had problem recognizing other Linux distributions.

But they invariable recognized Microsoft by default or is it fear induced by Microsoft by its global propaganda or is it both.

Why not recognize its sisters and brothers breathing over the neck to have a good start.

Most pertinent question is why Microsoft cannot see with their eyes open wide Linux or other partitions.

They are totally blind to independence an market forces.

Where is universal  brotherhood?

Where is universal comradeship?

There are two reasons.

1. One is boot loader they use is LiLo.

2. The other is that they do not write a script (copy of the booting sequence in the header files of the root partition.

They all write on the M.B.R while giving priority to Microsoft almost by default or deceit.

Ubuntu do this, all Ubuntu derivatives including attractive Mint do this culpable offense.

It is time to wake up and put this right.

Suse recognizes only 15 partitions.

There used to be over 60 partitions those days before the RAID and volumes came into existence.

I used to have at least 8 (2 windows) distributions bootable on my hard disk barely 80 GB.

Those days Linux were not fat and heavy and some of them could stay on 2 GiB partition.

I used to modify boot sector by various means to get all running without a problem with GRUB as the boot loader.

Now the hard disks are over 300 or 500 we must go back to all traditions and have at least 30 partitions recognizable.

Then I can boot Microsoft, Apple Mac and Open Free BSD as part-timers with Linux preferably my own assembly called God Bless You All (G.B.Y.A) (thanks to all the guys including Puppy Linux) and I will throw a party even the all mighty God has directed me to the grave for rest after the party.

Recovery Is Possible or Impossible and cohabitation is a must in the coffin for all of us at the end.
