Sis recently shared a Wait But Why blog post with me, which I thought was a hilarious take on North Korea:
20 Things I Learned While I Was in North Korea
The author’s stick figures and comical dialogues were both funny and informative, which I thought was a great way to pass the time while also learn something in the process. I can’t believe that I did not know about this site sooner!
Of course, there are some other equally informative but less hilarious articles (such as the one on ISIS) on Wait But Why, and I found myself learning more about ISIS through the hour or so that I spent on reading the article than the weeks or months that I read about them in the news! (information is backed up by evidence as well, so it is objective as much as it is subjective)
Thank you for creating such a wonderful articles, Wait But Why.
Now let me continue reading about the AI Revolution and why we should all be worried about it (just not in the Hollywood kind of way).
A few days ago, sis and I met up with KD and her mom who are visiting Taiwan on vacation. We went for beef noodles and mango ice, and seeing them just left me feeling so nostalgic for my life in Canada. On May 31, two years ago, I flew to Taiwan to be reunited with my family, but I left a part of me behind in Canada. Like Mohsin Hamid said in The Reluctant Fundamentalist, “it is not always possible to restore one’s boundaries after they have been blurred and made permeable by a relationship … something of us is now outside, and something of the outside is now within us.” So try as I might, it is impossible to erase the memories of yesterday; but I will enjoy the moments of today, and look forward to the possibilities of tomorrow.
