Rant #8: Easter Special

Problem in a nutshell: People are dangerous.

In the unlikely event that you are murdered tonight, it is my responsibility to remind there is no respawn button in life.

Rant #7: World Toilet Day (WTD)

Problem in a nutshell: Do we really need a day to celebrate toilets?
I don't think I need to explain what this is and/or how this 'invention' works, because I like to keep this family friendly. My rule of thumb is anything that is discussed here can be discussed at the dinner table without anyone excreting food from their mouths (Results may vary). But it must be said, continue at your own risk.

Rant #6: Languages (English)

Problem in a nutshell: English Language is the most common language on this planet, but why is it so hard to learn.
90% of the web pages on the internet is written in English, half the books published in the world are written in English, but as you will see, English is every bit crazy as it is weird.

A quick history lesson: English is a language that originated from England. It is derived from German, Latin, French and Greek. This means that English follows four different systems and there is no systematic pattern to distinguish which one to use. This makes it very confusing for English learners (like me, even though that was a long time ago), to decide whether to use fatherly or paternally. When did mixing a few standards together became the standard.

Example: Adding the prefix 'in' in front of a word inverts its meaning, appropriate + 'in' and you get 'inappropriate' which is opposite. However, as with English, there are exceptions: flammable + 'in' and you get inflammable, but they both mean to easily catch on fire. To an English learner, they naturally expect one to be flammable and the other not to be. This is how English kill.

Rant #5: Irritating People (Tourists)

Problem in a nutshell: These people come clog up the whole transit system

Welcome to London, the capital city of Great Britain and the world. Somehow, this metropolis attracts over 32 million tourists every year to clog up our transit, vandalise our city and to make our commute slightly longer and less comfortable.

The only positive thing that these people bring into us is the money that they dump into London to keep the local economy up. From buying ludicrously expensive postcards to looking at relics that we stole from our colonies, and occasionally spending a few quid on key chains with the queen's face on it.

I mean I shouldn't be complaining that they are dumping 7 billion quid a year to our economy, but most of them don't even come into the city to say hi. Most travellers just change at Heathrow for onward connections to Europe. Making noise, environmental pollutants and stress on the locals. London's six airport alone brings in employment for a chunk of the city's population, but do we really need to rely on this income at the cost of our beautiful city?

Rant #4: TV Pickup

Problem in a Nutshell: Britons regularly cause massive power surges by simultaneously making tea during TV program breaks

This is a kettle. It is used for boiling tea. We like tea. We like Doctor Who even more. We use electricity to heat the water. The problem arises when

Here, the mains electricity are fed by these people. They are responsible for all the wind farm and homes electricity. The only problem I have with them is TV Pickup. This phenomenon is when there is a large synchronised surge for electricity. I mean, we spend a lot of money to improve the national grid (£200 million). Are you saying that the National Grid can't use 200 million quid to power a few kettles at the same time? Come on National Grid.

In the UK right now, we are barely generating enough electricity. What happens when the era of electric cars arrive? Who knows, but one thing is for sure, we are not ready for them until we harness electricity from sources other than burning ancient plants.

Rant #3: Governments

Politics, Taxes, Yay!
Problem in a nutshell: Where the hell did all my tax money go?

Every year, I pay my fair share of taxes to the government, for what they've promised during their campaigns, but when its time to actually build it, they always say the same thing: "We've run out of Money". My question is where did all that money go? As it turned out, it went to make the rich richer and the poor poorer.

First of all, the military grabs a big chunk of our money, to fund thermonuclear missiles to destroy the world. One thing I've never understand about nuclear war is the destruction part. Once you press the launch button, everything will become a wasteland and useless. One of the questions that I must ask you is if there is a nuclear missile heading to your country, do you press your launch button to harm more civilians just for the retaliation?

Rant #2: The Flat Earth Society

Problem in a nutshell: A society, originally British, that holds the belief that the Earth is flat, not spherical.

First of all, I do respect those of you who believe in this society, what I am about to do may be disrespect to you, therefore, you may want to leave if you are that sensitive.

In a modern world that we live in, there are people who are gullible enough to refuse to believe in science, but rather to return to the stone ages. We have travelled to space, taken pictures, landed on the moon, and they believe its all a hoax. I mean, this theory will violate a lot of what we know today, such as the LAW(s) of gravity, time zones, spherical geometry, the list goes on.... Why don't I break one down for you quickly, the Moon?

Since the earth is rotating, the consistent oval-shadow it produces in each and every lunar eclipse proves that the earth is not only round but spherical, you cannot have the sun and the moon, on the same side of the planet and produce a shadow. Why do people have these conspiracies? Just why.
If you have a valid argument, leave a comment below and we'll go to space for the truth when Virgin Galactic comes around.
