I was very young, maybe 12, that my teacher was telling us a story in classroom. At one part he said that God ever existed, exists and will exist forever. It was a really mind twisting claim. I went home and thought about it. I remember that my aunt told me that it is true and try to not think about it, because it will drive me crazy. She tried to scare me, but for my curious mind, I couldn’t let it go. My most of thoughts were on bed, and I came up with a solution, we are trapped in space and time, that’s why it wouldn’t make sense that something has ever existed.
There were times that world problems would excitingly hook me for a long time. It’s funny, but I was trying to invent some simple math formulas, like how to calculate square of a number, just by having the square of the previous number; like we have 169 (which is 132) and we want the square of 14, which is 196. And the solution is to add the base numbers to the smaller square: 169 + 13 + 14. I know I’m terrible at describing it, but my point is that I was always fascinated with science.
I had this ridiculous idea of creating a device that works like a blackhole. Imagine a device in your bedroom with lights on, and the device will suck the light in and the room becomes dark. Then I had the same idea with the sound, it would be a great isolation
The more practical thought was to create a speed bump that is car friendly. My idea was to implement 2 or 3 air suspensions underneath the bump’s skin, then slow cars would easily press that down and cross safely, but faster cars will really feel that bump, because it takes time to turn flat.
Sometimes I really want to go back to physical sciences and study physics, chemistry, geology.. I’m 26 and still have doubts what I’m gonna do in future.
you’re FAT and want to know what to do? this is what i’ve done last year that helped me losing 3 stones.
I fell sick in February 2014, I lost my appetite and didn’t eat enough for few days, I lost 4 kilos (which later I realised that it was mostly water weight) and made me wonder the significance of diet on weight loss.
so the idea was from this fact that if we don’t eat, first glycogen will get drained, then body turns into fat burning mode (ketosis) and then protein and bones etc. so i thought what if i only eat protein? then my body won’t cannibalize the muscles! well yeah it worked, but there are consequences that you need to be aware of. I basically went on boiled eggs and veggies diet.
high protein diet from meat and dairy products mean acidic blood, so you need to alkalise it with veggies and other stuff, unless you like cancer.
again on meat and dairy protein diet, you’ll barely go to toilet for number two, so you need some real good waste like fibre.
vegetable protein amino acids are not complete, so you need to have a diverse range of them + take care of vitamin B12 deficiency.
our brain’s “preferred” energy source is sugar, not fats, so the functionality drops to about 80%.
being on ketosis, changes person’s mood, messes with hormones and metabolism (i had quarrels once in a while).
now you know these, i’d suggest if you’re following this path, then you can do this:
do carb cycling.
combine all sources of proteins, moderation.
Make sure to use good fats like coconut oil, nuts, etc.
men, hit the gym and lift heavy with compound exercises, at least once a week, leverage the after burner effect.
women, do the above, don’t be scared to make some muscles, it will take years for you to be muscular enough to be not attractive, you’ll lose weight before making any significant muscles. or at least do heavy cardio.
In below there are some messy keywords, terms and topics that I noted for myself to look at once in a while, you should also learn about them too, at least have a quick look.
Within last few weeks (especially in Ramadan), I had to explain to every nation that being an Iranian doesn’t necessarily mean we are muslims. Iran is not Saudi Arabia. Majority of Iranians are muslim, but we also have christians, jews, zoroastrians, atheists, etc.
You can figure it out yourself by these facts:
Iran’s population: ~78 million
Check out population pyramid of Iran, majority are young.
Not everyone has access to internet
Facebook is blocked in Iran
Iranian Atheists & Agnostic pages on Facebook has more than 150k fans and growing rapidly.
Iran’s government persecutes irreligiousness or religions other than Islam.
Religion is fading away in Iran. Please stop generalising/stereotyping that every Iranian must be a muslim. Hell no, I’m an agnostic atheist and not giving a damn for god’s existence. I believe in humanity, caring about animals and enjoy drinking draft sake and beer.
Normally I don’t really like to take a taxi and instead would walk short distances, like less than 5km; but when it gets rainy or muggy weather, then I’d be taking trains, buses and taxis, unless I go nuts and want to get soaked under the tropical rain or in other situations like when it’s not worth carrying heavy stuff on foot.
Malaysia’s Public Transport
Most of local people have cars, many of them. A family of 5 could have 5 or even more cars for each person. Expats have a different story. Cars are expensive here in Malaysia, so in most cases you’ll see tourists and expats taking public transport, which sometimes can be tricky.
Buses aren’t on time. In some areas there might be buses coming once an hour and I’ve recently experienced waiting more than 2.5 hours for it. Trains are better at timing though; but the routes are not as expanded as Tokyo, so it has its limitations.
The Taxi Drivers
It could be simplest and the trickiest of all. Even local people don’t really to take taxis as the drivers would rip anyone off, well not all of them. Here’s the common tricks.
The most common trick is that the driver turns the meter on right when a passenger calls them from meters away, then they would ask the destination, pretend not to clearly understand the location name and stretch this initial agreement conversation while the meter counts all this time.
The other trick became popular few years ago when the drivers were forced to install and use a taximeter, so if they found you new to the city, then they would go few extra kilometers just to make a bit more out of you. This one isn’t as usual as before since people reported many cases just by tracking their location on smartphones and realising that they were going around the city while there are shorter routes.
And the last one isn’t really a trick, but sounds rude. Many drivers would keep the small change until you ask for it or sometimes they pretend to not have the change.
When I was a child, they told me that God had existed before creating the world and will exist after its collapse. At first, it looked unrealistic and they told me to not think about it, it’ll drive me crazy; but within an hour I got my first idea: “we’re trapped in time!” and it means God’s existence is out of time’s boundary (although I’m an atheist now) and science has proven that we’re living in warp of space and time . My point is to analyse and thinking critically, find what are you interested in, then go for it!
Everyone’s interest will change through years. I wasn’t quite sure what I’m going to be, but had some interests in physics and biology, now I’m blogging and developing websites but looking more for topics like Black Hole, Multiverse, Quantum Physics, DNA, Water, Energies, etc. Yeah, what we make money of might be different with what we’re interested in, but at least try not to hate your course/carrier.
