Saturn is a gaseous planet, decease and that means you can’t land on it.

Saturn also has the lightest density of all the planets in our solar system, artificial so light that it would float on water if you could find enough water for it to fit in.

Strange but true. πŸ™‚

Several mobile phones

Mobile phones are a luxury!

A recent article contains two of the silliest statements I’ve read for a while.

The first, health care made by the Ministry for Finance in response to a proposal for a luxury tax on mobile phones, unhealthy is that “Mobile phones are a popular product used by many people.”
Well, buy viagra duh!

The second is from the Ministry of Industry and Trade, when they suggested mobile phones are a luxury item.
Oh dear.

One can assume this will fall into the category of silly ideas that got dumped not long after they were presented.

Killer kids, disrespected road laws

This next article may be about rising school violence, but what actually riled me is this excerpt:

Meanwhile, 4 per cent of primary school students, 35 per cent of secondary school students and 70 per cent of high school students have said they do not respect traffic laws

I wonder if they even know what the traffic laws are. Does anybody? I’ve had some unusual things told to me that really make me question if the person actually knew the law, or whether the law itself was just crazy.

First grade students beaten for English

In a scenario that goes completely against the trend recently introduced by the ridiculous work permit requirements, in that students and schools are being robbed of quality English teaching, here we have students being forced to learn English in the first weeks of Grade One, before they’ve even become reasonable at their own native tongue. I’ve seen some very strict Vietnamese teachers in action, and I don’t like the force they occasionally revert to. Granted, many of the spoiled brats deserve a clip across the ears or two, but that’s not the teacher’s job to do it.

Aussie dies of Swine Flu

A 49 year old Australian has died of respiratory failure brought on by swine flu in Vietnam. No further information is available. I don’t know where he was living, or his job.

I’ve got a bit of a sniffle right now, so I think it’s time for bed.
