SMRT had a stroke

When people aged, the possibility of getting a stroke will get higher each day. Similarly when the body is overfed, cholesterol is likely to choke up the arteries and may also lead to a stroke. Getting a stroke is going to be more common and normal among the elderly. Likewise, the train system is going to experience more breakdowns under normal wear and tear and the increasing load and operating hours.

What happened last night to the north south train, well, it happened. Commuters would have to get use to the new normal. Forming committees, seeking expert advices, looking for foreign experts to look into the problem, well, well, that’s what organization does when a problem occurs. Form more committees, do more investigation, board of inquiry, hire more experts and consultants, spend more money. These are the normal and necessary things to do. No need special talents for such follow up actions.

What I thought was unexpected and unacceptable last night was a total power failure and without any backup power supplies. People could die, many people could die in such a situation. And provision of backup power supply is basic and essential. With so many commuters jam packed at peak hours, and without fresh air, without light, things could have been worst. While the committees can spend another 6 months or 3 years to investigate the causes of such breakdowns, immediate actions must be taken to ensure that backup power supplies are provided and must work in every breakdown.

Thank the lucky star that no one dies last night. We don’t need to wait for someone to die to form committees, board of inquiries and hiring foreign experts to do such a basic equipment like backup power units, a mandatory safety requirement in all trains and all systems.

Our 40 or 50 year old talents would not know what to do. So they need to engage some 30 or 40 year old foreign talents to teach them and tell them what is wrong and what to do.

The 30 or 40 year old foreign talents would know more than our 40 or 50 year old talents even if they have gone through the same universities and got worst grades than our local talents.

That's what it should be.

Fuck me! No shit this actually happened? No backups? Everyone constantly exposed to danger and oblivious? Authorities caught masturbating instead of doing their job?

Incidents like this make me happy that I'm a skeptic, and makes all the negative criticism against me worth it.

Underlying assumption here: that SMRT is safe and well managed.

It could have been worst. Ours is still the best public transport system in the world. Go to third world countries if you are not happy. Our third world foreign talents here will vouch how good our system is. Count yourself lucky.

Redbean are you going to let that Americunt douche bag Steve Wozniak tekan Spore for lack of creativity?

Put a fatwah on him, redbean.

I will shake my cock and paint an Apple logo on his face with my cum.

Creative or not...?

Americans are creative people. No question about that. Top on the list, George Bush Jr. He started a hoax and all Americans believed him and so did the world.

Redbean, cheebye lah. We know Americunts are creative. Tekan this Woz for daring to criticise Spore for being to straight. Wrong lah. Someone take this mat salleh prick to geylang (where most of these Anons' mothers work) to experience the creativity on offer.

Once he kena the famous geylang rim job by anon's mother, alamak, the fucker will set up shop in Spore, and invent the Durian Computer, this time OS X Lion will actually be significant to Singapore.

Chua Chin Leng aka redbean said...

Put it this way, they make billions of dollars by making millions of people writing silly apps and games and making more millions of people wasting their time pushing buttons in the trains with their expensive gadgets.

And an army of the best computer brains are banging their heads out, to write another silly game. This is creativity first class.

Chua Chin Leng aka redbean said...

Matilah, you don't anyhow tekan people. Singapore is running out of ideas and may take his comments seriously. Then we will have a anything goes system. People can spit anywhere, eat anywhere, pee anywhere. Train breakdown, bus breakdown, all never mind.

Soon Singapore River will be like what it was and we will be drinking the water from the River.

Cry me a river will be sung in all the pubs.

Matilah_Singapura said...

redbean, the idea of the internet is based on the point that people should be free to "anyhow" express their opinion/ creativity, including creating the software, hardware and platforms/infrastructure to do so.

So yeah, ANYHOW tekan people is something everyone MUST DO at sometime or other on the internet.

Now the fun begins!

Wozniak is wrong about strict rules and heavy punishment. He can go around punching Singaporeans and walked away. Tell him no need to worry. The poor Singaporeans would have to find the money to engage a lawyer to sue him. If no money, there is no case to answer.

Matilah_Singapura said...

anon -- no lah, no need to sue just because some of us get feelings hurt.

Wozniak's stating an opinion but it is full of logical fallacies.

Anyway no one has yet been able to define "creativity" and get everyone to agree on the definition. So this discussion is like chicken and ducks talking to geese, talking to a sheep which is being fucked by a Malaysian.

Can we agree that the seeds of creativity are individual? That is to say, it all begins with "I", then many "i's" get together and BINGO you have a collective expression of creativity.

If creativity is a VALUE, then it can be BOUGHT. When it is bought, and used does it really matter who started it?

E.G. Using Apple as an example: Woz and Jobs created Apple Computer.

In 30 years, that company has delivered ground breaking products -- software, hardware, new ways of doing things. So much so that (seemingly) "uncreative" Singaporeans use Apple products and their offshoots every second of everyday.

Lucky for these "creatives" that there are people out there who make a MARKET for what they offer.

Creativity alone is not enough. You need CONSUMERS to make the shit work.

God bless "uncreative" people!

Annex:

The combined creative genius of Jobs and Woz, delivered in a market makes "geniuses" out of "uncreative" people -- like Singaporeans -- so that dumbos like you me and redbean are able to use Dope Smoking Hippie White Man creativity to express our suck-cock kampung no standard terok terbokok kachang puteh Singaporean "creativity"...on the internet, and beyond!

No more the need to write "fuck wendy, blowjob call 1234567" on toilet walls. Now we can be "intellectual"!

Hurray! Bring it on, bia-tches!

There was this guy who wanted to set up biz here but was turned away for whatever reason. He went back to America and complained to the ambassador. The ambassador tried to help and asked for his name in order to take it up with the right people. The guy said his name was Steve Wozniak.

This was many years ago.

Chua Chin Leng aka redbean said...

Matilah, next time you remove your own post, please include, removed by matilah can?

Everytime you did that this psycho kid will come barking at me.

@redbean

What? And deny the world of this motherfucking asshole displaying his butt-shitting stupidity?

The sub par moron would know differently if he had a blogger/gmail account and subscribed to the thread.

No way redbean. I don't alert people who choose to remain stupid.

Shame on you for asking ;-)

This event is not a fault of SMRT. It is LTA's fault according to some sources. Most cables used in that new train line were found by SMRT badly corroded and below standards when the first interruption occurred after start running. The line was built by LTA and handed over to SMRT. There are some interesting findings in the whole process of designing, constructing and handover for running. Why was the train line designed and built to such a inferior quality by LTA and why was SMRT unaware of the situation when taking over the train line? Indeed, an open committee of inquiry is necessary to find the truth. Given an unaccountable and opaque government, it seems a cover-up is more appropriate than public COI. It is therefore still a FAT HOPE to have a public inquiry for these incidents.
