Two yellows

The bag yellow is good, while the jacket yellow is bad.

Know your yellows!

Bureaucracy

If it is possible to change a capital’s name in a day, anything is possible in eight days.

Take note, Brits.

Nursultan

What are all these people talking about? Nursultan is a great name for Qazaqstan’s capital. People named places after their founders for ages:
Washington
Vladimir
Saudi Arabia
Rome
Liechtenstein

It’s a different problem that Astana sounds nicer than Nursultan.

P. S. Nursultan, Aisultan and all similar names rock.

Respected,

It was not easy to come up with this decision, but this is the only option left for me to put a smile on the face of many today.

I prefer any business that generates good benefits and I will be grateful for your coöperation in business or charity. I have a large fund that will be under your technical and administrative association. If you are ready to participate in this project, I will be grateful for your prompt reply to provide more details on how we can quickly complete this transaction together.

Finally, if you are not interested in this offer, I apologise for the inconvenience.

Sincerely,
Ms. Fatima Allah

Days of the week

I really like days the last digit of which matches up with the day of the week. For instance, March 11 is Monday. This eliminates the necessity to remember what day it is.

Although this pleasure ends a week later :-(

Why people choose being janitors

Some people choose to be janitors, a physically tiring and low-paying job. This seems counter-intuitive, but it is not. Many people are okay with this because it’s mentally much easier to keep doing the same thing again instead of learning a more useful skill.

It’s the same reason as staying with C++ instead of exploring the magical world of Python: staying and moving no further is easier for now.

The bad part is that if no effort is applied the for now will be procrastinated into never disappearing.

Internet-free Sundays

From June to December 31, 2017, I had an experiment going on, internet-free Sundays. It worked just like it sounds. I noticed that the internet is not unhealthy nor bad, but overwhelming. There were a lot of things I procrastinated on to enjoy the web.

I have a similar sensation now, so I’m starting it again.

This is similar to why I don’t read the news: everything important will get to me one way or another.
