Should a top doctor be punished and barred from saving lives in the future for one foul up? [COMPACTIDEA]

We entrust top doctors to save lives, but we do not give them room for a single mistake. No extra reward beyond normal salary/benefits if he brings a life back from the gallows of death by using his experience/skills, but severe punishment and ridicule if he isn't able to save a life because of a mistake on his part [and not because the patient was medically incurable/unsaveable].

Is this okay? Are doctors not allowed to make mistakes? If he has saved five hundred lives in the past, does that not count against a single mistake he made now? Further, what about the lives that will be lost because this life-saving top doctor is in prison and is thus unable to attend to critical patients [whom he would've otherwise saved]? Are we willing to kill perhaps several dozen patients in the future by removing this doctor from duty, only because our definition of "justice" says that the death of one patient - by mistake - deserves punishment?

Thought about these issues while watching Ankur Arora Murder Case.

Feminists vehemently support abortion citing "choice", yet they vigorously howl about sex-selective abortion of female foetuses [COMPACTIDEA]

This reveals a serious contradiction in the position and thought process of these hardcore feminists. They apparently want to support choice, but not universally, rather only when it suits their innate desires. They will, for example, support an abortion [basically a cold-blooded murder] when it's the female who wants to have the thing flushed out [even if the father doesn't support the abortion]. They will, however, oppose the same abortion when only the father wants to get it done [and the mother opposes]. In this sense feminists are quite predictable characters. They will use fancy/funny terms such as "bodily autonomy", "choice", "reproductive rights", etc., when it comes to blindly supporting females, but won't support abandoning of girl foetuses even if both parents agree on this course of action. So heartless murder of foetuses is okay whenever the mother wants to have it done, but it isn't okay - even if both parents want it - if the foetus happens to be a girl!

Where is "my choice" and other blah blah blah now? What kind of logic is this?

Predictable, despicable, eternally frustrated, deplorable and overall nonsense creatures.

Should the smallest and largest countries have equal votes in organizations such as the United Nations?

This is an unresolved question in my mind. Cambodia is small and poor, and its vote can be bought relatively easily by a large, wealthy nation such as China [e.g., Cambodia's vote in ASEAN holds same weight as of the larger Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia and Philippines], just like USA buys votes at UN from small island nations in order to give the impression that it has "multilateral support" and to not look cornered.

Question arises - should a smaller nation [in terms of population, economy size, etc.] have equal voting rights as a nation with much more population [India] or much more geographic size [Russia] or much larger economic size [Japan]? Countries with few people are representative of the people of the world as whole to a very little extent [compared to China, whose people represent over 18% of mankind], yet they vote on global issues with the same voting weight as nations with hundreds of millions of people each.

Taking away this inequality has its own severe negative repercussions [demonic countries such as USA would literally eat up less mighty nations].

Those who've been academic failures feel vindicated by education-bashing movies such as 3 Idiots, M.S. Dhoni, etc. [COMPACTIDEA]

Bashing academics/education/studies is the "in thing" today in Bollywood. Students are usually distributed according to the normal distribution, hence only a small proportional can be called intelligent in any given classroom anywhere in the world and in any decade. Hence, a significant proportion can be termed academic failures or academically poor. These folks sort of dislike education and so feel happy and even "vindicated" watching education being bashed in movies such as 3 Idiots [and the initial part of M.S. Dhoni], and falsely assume the messages being sent out - that education "isn't everything", and that you can easily be successful even without academics, and so on, forgetting hard/practical facts like there are only 10-15 guys in the Indian cricket team versus perhaps crores of aspirants.

Movies such as 3 Idiots aren't great, despite sky-high ratings and reviews. Such nonsense movies are liked by a lot many people because they allow this large proportion of academic failures to vent out their decades-old hatred for education.

Supreme Court's decision allowing husbands to divorce wives who force husbands to separate from their parents is logical

As expected, hardcore feminists are "outraged" and "speechless" and "shocked" by this decision. Their usual overuse of superlatives has begun [there's already nearly complete desensitization to these superlatives due to prior overuse]. These days, radical feminists feel entitled to have all judgments passed in favor of females, irrespective of what's logical according to the sum total of the basic structure of our society, our religious beliefs, prevailing norms, our culture, and so on. Any judgment/law that doesn't favor females creates shock waves among these predatory feminists, regardless of its merits. An important thing to not here is that these extreme feminists usually express their shock and awe without supporting it with logical arguments. In the screenshot below, she calls it "Shockingly retarded!" and she's left "Speechless 😡😡😡", but she never could explain what exactly made this sensible judgment retarded, other than implying questioning the basic structure of marriages in India [in which case these feminists shouldn't marry anyone at all, except perhaps each other, so they cal vent out their frustrations collectively].

The judges, however, did offer sufficient explanation. Thankfully, they were also cognizant that their judgment will act as a precedent and will be used as a guideline for years and decades to come. They likely also knew that unnecessary rants will follow, but that didn't stop them from issuing a sound judgment.

Thank god we still have non-cuboidal buildings in this world! [COMPACTIDEA]

Skyscrapers look so much the same. World is starting to look similar. Tall, sky-kissing buildings, all in the same basic shape - a long cuboid. They all look so much similar. Diversity in the world is reducing. Not good at all. Thank god we still have some places where important buildings aren't these boring long cuboids. Look at the headquarters of ING and Credit Suisse.

Showing off on social sites that you have a DSLR is another way to raise your quotient [COMPACTIDEA]

I've seen so many fools on FB showing off their DSLRs, pretending that they're "pros" just because they own a DSLR. DSLRs are so cheap now that even a monkey can buy one. Just another way to make oneself feel and seem more important/skilled/valuable than one really is. Narcissism has no bounds. Bridge cameras like Sony DSC-H300 take this one step further. These cameras look like DSLRs but are simply "pro looking" point-and-shoot types. They take away the complexity of a DSLR while preserving the "flaunt quotient". And they're much cheaper than DSLRs as well.

Indians should prefer drinking juice, lassi, etc., rather than Coke, Fanta, etc. [COMPACTIDEA]

Large companies like Coca Cola brainwash entire populations into believing that not only is it "cool" to drink Coke/Pepsi/Fanta, but that it's also somehow "refreshing", "rejuvenating", and a "way to celebrate". Since most of the populations all over the world are dumb sheep anyway, they start blindly believing and following these corporations and start mindlessly shelling their hard-earned money on these harmful products.

Indian government should both gently nudge and overtly force Indians to healthier drinks such as juices, lassi, etc. Those who advocate that free will and independent decisions of adults are always preferable should be reminded that independent decisions don't always produce the best/wisest results. Just look at how many Indian kids and adults are wasting their money and health on Western carbonated drinks. Crush these drinks under the load of taxation. Use these extra taxes to subsidize healthy beverages. This use of force is the only way to stop nefarious corporations from exploiting the foolishness of people.

School students shouldn't be given phones - or else give them only the most basic phones [COMPACTIDEA]

School kids get distracted and morally corrupted if/when they're given modern smartphones [with Internet]. They get into all sorts of bad things like watching porn, wasting time on chatting, getting into relationships with girls, etc. Reason for giving phones to school kids is given by parents as for the safety of kids. If this is the reason, better give kids only the most basic phones on which there's no Internet and no applications. Only calls and SMS. Kids need to be kept away from the open Internet, which is like a vast, unfenced jungle. Kids won't get into porn, chatting, flirting, MMSes/videos, etc., and the safety purpose will also be met.

Diana Penty is THE WORST actress ever in Bollywood [so far]

Realized this when watching Happy Bhag Jayegi today at Cinepolis. I don't think I've seen such horrible acting by any actress in any Bollwood movie ever. At some points in this movie, I even felt like maybe Diana Penty is just acting/behaving repulsively the way a dumb and brainless animal would, without exhibiting coherent and meaningful characteristics or gestures that would at least make her seem like a human/woman with non-zero intelligence.

To her credit, she might be a good model, but that's perhaps the only place where she should focus her energy and resources. The moment she opens her mouth and tries to act in a movie, she only makes fun of her own self and her dignity. She's not an actress and she'll never become even a decent actress because what's required for that isn't in her. Good looks can't always compensate for awfully-low acting skills. And you should know not only what you can do, but also what you cannot do - you shouldn't sell yourself for cheap just to grab a role in a movie.

Nevertheless, it wasn't an easy task getting here. Miss Unfortunately-Named Penty faced stiff challenge from other decorated awful actress veterans like Aishwarya Rai, Lara Dutta, and many others, but she rose to the occasion and even went beyond the call of duty to steal the crown of Miss Most Awful Bollywood Actress Ever. Hard work pays, and since she has set a new formidable benchmark in this field, it looks like she's going to be the reigning queen for the bottom for a long time to come.
