Photohunt: Creativity

I find this Christmas village featured in a mall very creative.  The whole concept makes you feel you are in a neighborhood with bright Christmas lights and decor.  There were many shoppers who pose to have pictures with this as background.  I snapped this picture in haste because the queue is never ending. 😀

We had our picture taken along one of the highlights in the village – a candy store.

Advance Merry Christmas to all!

They that argue

Arguments are good if what turns out of it is positive.  Most often that not, arguments end up violent, favoring no one because both of the contending parties believe that their process of reasoning is more favorable than the other.  Arguments should be made to persuade but unfortunately, there are people who just loves to argue.  In my article Types of People Who Love to Argue, I pointed out these three types of people who love to argue.

  • The Reformist
  • The Attention Seeker
  • The Fighter

In relation to this, I am sharing these quotes:

“I can win an argument on any topic, against any opponent. People know this, and steer clear of me at parties. Often, as a sign of their great respect, they don’t even invite me.”
-Dave Barry

Or maybe people steer clear of him because he is one of those types I mentioned.

“Without contraries is no progression. Attraction and repulsion, reason and energy, love and hate, are necessary to human existence.”
– William Blake

Mr. Blake can be the reformist type.  In respect though, for people who airs their view contrary to popular beliefs or concepts, I believe it is not about the love for an argument for argument’s sake but the need to express a view that is believed to be more logical, or practical.

“No sensible man ever engages, unprepared, in a fencing match of words with a woman.”
-Wilkie Collins, The Woman in White

I find the above quote funny.  Most women are born fighters, I believe.  😀

A Shotgun Microphone for Those People

It would be the rode microphones blimp windshield that I would choose and aim directly to those insensitive neighbors belching until the wee hours of the morning.  A shotgun microphone will be perfect because it is highly directional. It will pick up the sound with high gain from the front source.

With the design mentioned, all I do is speak in front of the microphone and deliver the message to the seemingly uneducated who do not know the difference between a bar and a private place. Just like how speakers do in a lecture room.
