About Mr. Condom, Sleep and Useless Rants

So today is Monday.  Yes, A Monday!

Mechai Viravaidya is the founder and chairman of the Population & Community Development Association (PDA), one of the largest NGOs in Thailand dedicated to poverty eradication. He is also well-known for his  Cabbages and Condoms restaurant.

In this TED talk he gives an amusing overview of how Thailand went from 7 children per family to 1.5 in less than four decades and a 90% reduction in HIV infection rates from 1991 to 2003.

P-noy must invite this guy to come over to the Philippines and help out with his Poverty and population programs.. Baka maka-enlighten siya sa pag iisip ng mga ibang tao sa ating lipunan most especially those people with brains molded in the dark ages and with mind-set stuck in the 1600.

Let me repeat.

Hours passed, and still, I was awake.

This is simply nothing

Everything was quiet. God’s creations were all gone except me I guess. The diverse universe to the former inhabitants just banished. There were no traces of human activity or things that existed before – no moon, no stars, no day, no night, no light, no darkness and everything that was there simply were non-existent.

Perhaps this was the most peaceful and the quietest moment in all the written history and for that matter in all the recorded experience of my life. .

I had the urge to ask a specific question as to why there was absolutely nothing around and such absolute nothingness happened but I figured out that this question would just be useless and stupid because there was only me. My common sense tells me that it would be in my best interest not to be stupid at this time although there was nobody except me that would say I am acting like one.

So I dismissed everything as nothing and decided to keep everything as is. After all, this nothing actually had something. A great feeling of serenity and undisturbed peace that for the longest time a lot of human beings seek.
