Try diciphering this!!

I have been really intrigued with this activity that my Research and writing lecturer gave us. That exercise was to deciper this. It was part of a real taxation act in 1936.

Out of the whole class of 400 students, I don't believe even 10 got this right. Try it. Haha... have fun scratching your heads! And DO post a comment with your answer! I got the answer wrong, but know the correct answer now. I will let you know when one of you gets the right answer!

The question: Which animal/s do you need a licence for: male and/or female dogs and/or male and/or female cats?

PET ACT, 1936

6(1) ‘Cat’ includes dog.

26 A licence must be held for

(f) any cat that is not a cat that
(i) would not be a cat were it not for s 6(1) and
(ii) is not male.

The point of this exercise was to prove the point of "avoiding negatives like a plague." Imagine if lawyers wrote like that these days- no one would understand them! Thank goodness the writing style has been changed during the last couple of years!

Life in university

Ok. This is the most mundane topic I can ever think of right?

Right. :P (Did you expect me to say otherwise?) ;)

But since so many people are actually INTERESTED in how I am doing and how I am finding uni, I guess I'll post it here. :)So shall I start with my schedule?

Yes? Righto...

Monday: full day
Tuesday: full day
Wednesday: not full day (but usually so because I op for it)
Thursday: not full day (same as the above)
Friday: day off
Saturday: Too busy to think of uni!
Sunday: Same as the above

Now that's settled.

Um... about what I actually do? Let's see...

List of things I do in the uni:
1. Fall asleep in class
2. Attend lectures
2. Attend tutorials
3. Talk to people
4 whisper during sessions
5. Eat lunch by myself
6. Read books
7. Check my email
8. Check the discussion board
9. Post impertinent replies
10. Walk

How's that? Changed your mind about attending uni now? :D Wow... I have actually persuaded some of you! ;)


1. Rehana
2. Alanna
3. Amanda
4. Marsha
5. Caroline
6. Flora
7. Susana
8. Lem
9. Deng
10. Mark
11. Annsley
12. Jasmine
13. Many others now...

haha... I know more people, but I don't know their names, so... (I hope you guys don't mind me posting your names, or missing out your names, because I don't remember all your names or don't know how to spell it! I didn't give any surnames anyway.)

1. Neil Mcleod (for Research and Writing, a compulsory Law unit)I really like his teaching. no whispering, no mobiles ringing, interaction and fun!
2. Lubica Ucnik (for critical and creative thinking- she is another interesting personality!)
3. Graham Wilcox (for evolution and revolution, one of the foundation units that every law student has to take)
4. Mary Anne Kenny (the actual LAW unit!!! Australian Legal System. She has a gentle personality)

1. Sam Luttrell (quite interesting)
2. Anita Williams (love her laugh!)
3. Chris Woo (he's crazy, or very nearly!)
4. Don't know her name yet... (very quiet)

Unique events:
1. Attending a bio-chemistry class by mistake!!!
2. Wandering around the whole law library looking for WA reports, and eventually found it where I first started looking!
3. Walking past a person I don't know and answering a question she asked someone else! (Huh... you should have seen her reaction. Took her a full 5 seconds to realize i was speaking to her, and when she did, her expression... (!!)

What I look forward to the most:
1. Dinner at home!
2. Using the computer (except they limit you to what you can do)
3. Browsing the library and borrowing all the books I like!

Religion Chart

I came across this chart as I was doing some research for an assignment. I thought it was really interesting, so I decided to post it here for you to have a look at it. At least Christians are making some headway in the world. But we can definitely do a lot better.

Singaporeans... LOL!!!


This is recommended for ALL nostalgic Singaporeans. Amazing, how much one changes after being transplanted into foreign soil. I don't believe I know how to speak like a true Aussie yet, but I don't think I can remember how to speak like a Singaporean either!

I have become part of a separate culture: multiculturalism... :P

Neither one nor the other- it's a rather scary thought! Where am I? Well, I won't bore you with my thoughts- they are usually worth 10 cents each (and I've given you... let's see... about 5 thoughts now, so that's 50 cents) but today they are only worth 1 cent each. It's because of deflation... I'm afraid an overused brain cannot think of any interesting things, (and I've spent nearly 4 hours today on an online library quiz, so there!)

Well, laugh away!
