Strange fate

Have you had this feeling before? that something is off, and things are happening in a strange way?

This is how I felt yesterday and the day before. Went to see a medical surgeon to take care of that bump on the back of my head. At parking lot, out ...

Tears

Caught a full bag of stars. Last time I had this moment was in 2004 just before I was leaving for Beijing. Fourteen years later, there they are again, glittering, haven't changed.

There must be an interlink between humans. I can't believe that a movie like Fahrenheit 11 ...

Time

Time is indeed relative.

I was talking to Noah about this this morning — why one feels the time in the morning always flies by? Theoretically time is uniform, it ticks by the second all the time, at the same pace. It doesn't change over the course of a day ...

Bizzare logic

U want know some bizzare logic? Here is one, from a terrible ridiculous argument w/ Noah's mom.

She said at dinner table that she has applied two charter schools for Noah. I then asked what are these two schools, and want to know more about them. We talked about ...

human and perception

I'm finding myself battling my own perception these days, a lot. Perception isn't a new topic to me. I have analyzed in hurt feeling whether it is a reasonable action for Noah's mom to feel hurt because of something I did, well, at least based on her ...

Taikang 2019

Dear friends of the 19th floor,

At time of departing, there is always something come to mind that I feel to speak and to write. So here it is. Take it as a "Thank you" note, or just a plain letter, from someone who had the privilege live with this ...

Operating systems

Let me talk about OS. This has been an annoying topic recently due to the ZTE fiasco, which to me is a running joke on its own — one billion dollar fine, and we got nothing but a bunch of BS articles circulating on in wechat that arouses nationalistic sentiments with ...

Details

Devils are indeed in details. Watching a Japanese movie Fire on the Plain, it suddenly reminded me a topic I have always wanted to write about — you know, when we are listening to the wonderful story of the Three Kingdoms, and fancy how powerful China was, and how you could ...

Thank me

This is a curious thing. Maybe I'm thinking too much again. So at the dinner table, two women sitting next to me asked me to open a jar for her. Sure thing, The there is a girl sitting across to us on another table said, "turn it upside down ...

Wife material

Traveling reveals one thing to me. I don't know whether this is unique to me, or it is common to many people, guys especially. I start to realize that, regardless which space I am in, let's say, in a shuttle bus, or a subway, or an airport, or ...

First photo of the Earth taken by NASA in 1968

Last day of 2018. Snowed yesterday. Amazingly the snow accumulated over night, and Shanghai is now looking pretty, covered in white, and fresh air. Listening to Xmas music in Starbucks, with Noah reading his comic book next to me. It ...

Mobs

The news of Ofo is really a good one. I wonder when human (well, human is really a big word, because this is generalizing to all the walking lives on this planent, so I should really refine this statement to, well, people? mass?..) will learn. Really, let's use the ...

Human intelligence

What in incredible paper! This says so much computer and artificial intelligence than any of the popular talks.

Every process of thought or action is made up of sub-processes. Let us consider such examples as making a pencil stroke, writing a letter of the alphabet, or making a plan. Quite ...

A love story

It is quite an unexpected book.... wow, while looking up its book name, it turned out that it is actually called A Romance in Tibet, wow! I was making up this blog's name without knowing the books is called a romance... what a coincidence!

But indeed, this is a ...

Fate

Another raining winter day. Walking out from airbnb, ran into an old man carrying a garbage bag, a rain coat with a big cut open on the back. What caught my attention was his black sneakers — washed clean by the rain, but felt soaking wet. He was walking with is ...

Reveal slides

reveal.js is pretty awesome. I have been using it for the last 9 months now and love it. It was a bit of hassle to set it up initially. Once you have an example, yo can replicate and be productive ...

Bad words

So Noah's school called yesterday. During lunch the kids at his table played truth or dare. Noah dared, a girl, to rape..... geee.. I was totally speechless and didn't even understand where he could have picked up that concept. Teacher said she felt this is a topic she ...

Domain knowledge

What is a domain knowledge? Domain knowledge implies a knowing of a specific area of knowledge, like plumber knows plumbing. It's quite easy to picture that everyone, or should say every profession, is a its own domain, thus has its own knowledge, which in true, in the same sense ...

Addiction

What is an addiction then!? and why is this word negative!? I think when we talk about this word, the implied message logic is that it is bad because it puts a person into an extreme condition, thus is not sustainable, thus is not healthy ← so there are quite a ...

A better world

It has been a fascinating thought to me — is human the only specie who thinks about leaving a better world for their children? This perception, or statement, has been widely used in many talks, conversations, lectures, debates, and propaganda, that by doing so and so, we are to leave our ...
