  1. Oh! I disagree with your definition of WMD. It’s Weapon of Mass Distraction! 😀 Is this for real? I won’t mind signing up in army for more of these. Hehe

      1. Too bad I wasn’t the first one to thing of such creation.

        I graduated with an International Relations degree, and any political issue makes me want to jump in and share my thoughts. WMD is one of the terminologies used. I am not practicing my degree yet as I am soon to study again in preparation for the ever challenging Foreign Service Exam.

        1. What does a Foreign Service Exam entail? It sounds like some sort of vaguely Soviet examination. I never went to university so I bow to your political knowledge.

          1. Sorry for this late response. I think this was the time I accidentally unfollowed you so apologies. Foreign Service Exam is taken by those who want to be career diplomats. Since the nature of the job is mostly international, Filipino examinees must pass tests on:

            English
            Filipino
            International Affairs – Theory and practice of international economics and trade, international politics, international law and treaties
            Philippine Political, Economic, Social and Cultural Conditions – Philippine history, culture, foreign policy, geography, government, development issues and goals
            World History
            Foreign Language – Arabic, Bahasa Indonesia, Chinese, French, German, Japanese, or Spanish

            There. It seems easy, but just to let you know. 9 out of 594 passed last 2012 FSO exam.

            1. Blimey that doesn’t seem easy in the least. That’s a whole load of languages to be fluent in. I wish you the very best of luck though.

              1. I think I need more than luck. Languages is only 5% of the year-long exam. I need to study more history and political issues to pass.

                Funny. I missed reading that word from Harry Potter.

                1. Quintessential English word that is, if you want someone to bounce ideas off, I could read the same era of history/politics and we can discuss it if that would help at all.

                  1. Oho! Are you in history and politics, too? I don’t know this. Perhaps we can debate on some current world issues to train me.

                    1. I do enjoy history and history would be nothing without politics. I’m a little rusty on current affairs having only skim read the news this year but i will get back into it and would love a good debate with you. I find anything can be interesting if presented in the right way.

                    2. True. It is okay though. You can be selective on current affairs – only choose those topics you are interested in. That way, you will be knowledgeable when you present your case and argue with me. Haha

                    4. Ah, the thirst to learn everything. When I do that, I feel like time is not enough to do the things I want to do and learn. I’m too greedy.

                    5. Greed is good, the more we learn the more we realise we don’t know. That is the curse we must endure. I like to think it is the people we learn with and from that make it all worthwhile.

                    6. I think someone said that, but I can’t remember who. You are right. It is interesting to learn more with different people. I once got fascinated with hard metal music when I met a vocalist of a band, then got into football when someone I know plays in our national team.

                      Why do I find it difficult to believe that?
