    It's the most booksmart place I've been to, but not the biggest on common sense. Anarchy when something outside the norm happens here.

    It's because most of the guys doing those jobs are all kids serving NS as well and just cbf. They're doing admin work because they're unfit ****s or have medical problems.

    I agree, and that is down to the education system and general culture. But dealing with an issue like getting a password in time, and other general admin stuff, is something they generally thrive in. I agree with smali in that such an issue like the one Daemon is facing would be pretty rare in Singapore.

    Sounds like something damn frustrating to have to deal with.

    Edit: Ah just saw Daemon's latest response. I've heard that a lot, people who cbf doing NS end up getting the easy admin like jobs and literally just do nothing for months on end.

    ok...makes sense now
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    Studying for taxation law exam, and whenever I decide to use short form for "Fringe Benefits Tax", I keep on describing Matthew Hayden.

    Saying something hilarious a bit too quietly and not getting any response from the group only to have the person next to you shamelessly steal it word for word 5 seconds later to racious laughter. Bit too difficult to give credit, ****? [sociallyawkwardandbitter]

    Intransigent captains

    Have sent down 5 overs in 3 games despite being picked as a specialist bowler because of two bad overs and a few wides. How the **** do I make the case for a loosener or two when I'm spending Saturdays at long-on or waiting to bat at 11?

    Wouldn't grate so much if I hadn't spent the winter training my proverbial arse off.

    No need to over-intellectualize. Just decide on an orifice FFS.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    Funnily enough, one song I hate is Shakespeares Sister - Stay. The word me must go on for a good 45seconds in that one.
