how we see ourselves and how others see us

with many stm students struggling to write their theses at this point in time (not to mention that the reb is also busy editing his thesis draft), this PhD comic sums it up aptly how we see ourselves and how others see us! LOL

'but i have an outline'

comics from PhD comics are great (especially when one is going through the same motions).
anyway, here is one which reminded the reb of what one BD student supposed to be writing his thesis recently said, 'But i have an outline'. yeah, an outline is an outline, not a thesis.

a modern re-telling of creation account aka 'malaysia boleh' style

got this in the email recently. a modern satirical re-telling of the creation account (aka 'malaysia boleh' style)

-------------------------------------------------------------

Once upon a time in the kingdom of Heaven , God was missing for six days. Eventually, Michael the archangel found him, resting on the seventh day.

He inquired of God. "Where have you been?" God took a deep sigh of satisfaction and proudly pointed downwards through the clouds, "Look, Michael. Look what I've made!"

Archangel Michael looked puzzled and said, "What is it?" "It's a planet," replied God, "and I've put Life on it. I'm going to call Earth and it's going to be a great place of balance." "Balance?" inquired Michael, still confused. God explained, pointing to different parts of earth. "For example, northern Europe will be a place of great opportunity and wealth while southern Europe is going to be poor. Over there I've placed a continent of white people and over there is a continent of black people," God continued pointing to different countries. "This one will be extremely hot while this one will be very cold and covered in ice." The Archangel, impressed by God's work, then pointed to a land in the southern part of Asia and said, "What's that one?"

"Ah," said God. "That's Malaysia the most glorious place on earth. There are beautiful beaches, mountains, streams, hills, and water falls.

The people from Malaysia are going to be very handsome, beautiful, modest, intelligent and humorous and they are going to be found traveling the world holding good jobs. They will be extremely sociable, hardworking and high-achieving, and they will be known throughout the world as diplomats and carriers of peace, play great badminton and go to the Olympics." Michael gasped in wonder and admiration but then proclaimed, "What about balance, God? You said there would be balance!!!"

God replied wisely, "Wait until you see the clowns that will run their government."
