Blissful Thinker

First of all, it is Blissful Thinker and not 'blissfull' thinker. Some people, whose English is most likely not their first language, often got it wrong and write it as 'blissfull' instead of 'blissful'. It is understandable because it sounds like a word formed by two other words: bliss and full (therefore it is simply understood as blissfull, which is wrong according the Oxford English Dictionary (http://dictionary.oed.com/).

So what is a 'blissful thinker'? Blissful (of persons), an adjective, by definition is people who are joyous, full of bliss, or happy in the highest order. Thinker, a noun, is a person who is being engaged in thinking or simply one who thinks. A blissful thinker is therefore someone of a happy bunny bunch who thinks of all happy things and make all things look simple and rosy?? Did I get it right?

Ubuntu Releases - Mirrors in Australia

Summer Flies

Summer flies start to come out this week. I can see more flies flying around today, the hottest day so far in Melbourne. Summer fly "invasion" is "normal" in Victoria, and according to my Victorian friend, it is much worse in the country side. And lots of mosquito there as well!

The flies are quite annoying because they tend to fly around our head, especially eyes, nose and mouth while we are walking on a street. I wonder why they like flying around human head. Is it due to the ultra violete reflection that attracts the flies? Or is it the smell of our hair? Or our nose? Or our mouth (ugh....halitosis can attract summer flies? yukkk...).

Speaking and breathing in open space in Melbourne need to be done carefully during summer because the flies sometime can fly directly to our mouth and nose and try to sneak in. I am sure it is not funny to have flies in our mouth or nose.

Oh My God!

"Oh my God!"

"Did I hear you calling God?"

"I said oh my God, I didn't call the God."

"I thought you do not believe in God, how can you say oh my God? I don't want to judge, but you told me the other day that you shagged your friend's wife, and when I said you committed a sin you said it wasn't because you don't believe in God."

"Well you don't have to believe in God to say oh my God, beside, God doesn't exist anyway."

"But you just said oh my God, which means you acknowledged the existence of God."

"No, I said oh my god, not oh my God."

"Oh okay, so oh my God or oh my god or whatever, actually means nothing to you. Shut the f*ck up and don't even mention God if you don't mean it. Do not pretend you're religious, bastard!"

"Ugh, now you yourself becomes a judge of others and called me bastard, isn't it a sin? I am sure your faith teaches you about patience, kindness and nice words."

"Yes I know it is a sin, but don't forget I believe in God and God will forgive my sin."

"Okay, now you see, this is the reason why I don't believe in God, because those who claim they believe in God actually are sinners. They are not better than me, aren't they?"
