NTU undergrads break world record for largest number of blind datesSingaporeans, are you proud? One can only ask why.
As part of Nanyang Technological University's (NTU) 50th Anniversary celebrations, 536 first-year undergraduates got together and broke the world record for the largest number of blind dates.
According to the regulations, they had to interact with each other for at least an hour within a 12-hour period.
Blind Dates? Bah. Wimps. At least Annabel Chong had sex with 251 men [SFW link] and having record number of blind dates is considered an achievement?
Maybe if you kena paired up with a "William Hung", or you have to endure 12 hours of mindless boring conversation with an airhead.
It also reinforces in me, the notion that education in Singapore is just one big social experiment. Everything is so artificial and arranged. What the hell, want a date also need the University to arrange for you. Eat, Procreate, Obey.
There are thousand and one things more dignified to do to mark the University's 50th Aniversary, and NTU chose to do this. The founders of Nantah must be collectively rolling in their graves.
Maybe this whole shindig is sponsored by SDU. Probably. I won't be the least bit surprised.
For something done with much more creativity, why not go to Google Moon.
Finally, a map for the moon. Free, together with Google Earth. Free Also.
And why is our own Singapore Map website, www.streetdirectory.com is not free? (free to view. not free to copy the map and use it on your website)
