Write a new post in response to today’s one word prompt : ‘Fish’

cichlid

 

I have tried rearing fish at home several times until I finally gave up the hobby.  I would have to say that watching fish swim in the tank is a very relaxing feeling. I have reared goldfish, angelfish, neon tetra and African cichlids.

The Raspberry Pi is a tiny and affordable computer that you can use to learn programming through fun, practical projects. These single-board computers were developed in the United Kingdom by the RaspberryPi Foundation®  to promote the teaching of basic computer science in schools and developing countries.

All models feature a Broadcom®  system on a chip (SoC), which includes an an ARM compatible central processing unit (CPU) and an on chip graphics processing unit (GPU, a  VideoCore IV). CPU speed ranges from 700 MHz to 1.2 GHz for the Pi 3 and on board memory range from 256 MB to 1 GB RAM.

Bustling Bangkok

I had the opportunity to visit Bangkok during the last weekend with my cousin and I found it to be an amazing and bustling city with something for every type of traveller.

On the first night we visited the tallest rooftop bar in Bangkok atop the Baiyoke hotel.  From the 84th floor one can have a breathtaking view of the city.  The revolving floor offers a 360 deg view of the Bangkok skyline.

Would you rather be a worried genius or a joyful simpleton?

June 2, 2016 1 comment

I disagree with the premise of this topic.  It assumes that being a genius can only bring worry and sorrow and that all simpletons are happy and joyful.

I would choose to be a joyful  genius.  I think there is no greater joy than that experienced by a genius in his/her moment of serendipity.  The ecstatic moments of Archimedes and Kekule show that they experienced great joy on their discovery of ‘the principle of buoyancy’ and ‘the Benzene ring’ respectively.  They did spend years working out their problems and when they took a step back and relaxed, they had their moments of intuition, their ‘Eureka’ moment.  Such men like Einstein, Edison, Archimedes and  Kekule have discovered the workings of principles that have benefited mankind as a whole.  Is there a greater joy than this?
