Headlines, no-brainers, and an age-old question answered!

Headline acts

Washington Post
Five soldiers were killed in the line of duty... it's time to banish that inappropriate phrase "friendly fire".

Poor fish... went out on a limb (and got bashed up) just for you!

If you were an ST reader, I bet you didn't miss this headline (June 10) and went on to read the entire story. Very good teaser headline.

Lost in translation?

What kind of explanation is this? I am confused. What does "That is not correct" mean? The next paragraph jumps to "no CPF monies go towards government spending" and that "government borrowings cannot be used to fund...". So government borrowings can still come out of our CPF money? In plainspeak, say yes or no.

Flexibility? The "that's not in my vocabulary" generation?

Remember that ST Forum letter writer, a university student, who questioned the flexibility given by Customs with regard to the payment of Goods and Services Tax (GST) for returning Singaporeans who did not keep goods purchased from overseas in their original packaging? Well, here's another "no shades of grey, Jose" character! The convenience of getting the Vicom certificate on the spot so one can easily renew one's road tax seems lost on this person (what about my faulty headlights?). Sheesh, go fix them later -- after you paid your road tax. Gee, some mothers do have them!

Lie detector for the home? Extremely so!

Cow car water? Never mind, it promises to be finger-licking good!

Finally, the answer to the question, "Which came first, the chicken or the egg?"
