This Week I Learned 2018 - Week 11

Last week post or something from the past.

Another week, another compilation of vocabulary list. The list of words were a bit tricky to cohere (一致,连贯) together into a convincing paragraph. Just let your imagination go wild then!
The island have been inhabited (居住在) by the isolated indigenous (土著) peoples since long before it was discovered by foreign outsider. Strangely enough, the tribe was hospitable (好客的) and willing to embrace outsider even though there was some resistant initially. People in the island are not herbivore (草食动物) due to the climate and available food source. Within the cold climate with little greens available, tuna fish is their daily source of protein. Tuna fish, due to its distinct smelly fishy odor inhere (存在) can lead to to halitosis (口臭), which can be quite put off to outsider. The people in the island adhere (持有信仰) to a strange religious ritual where they don't inhume (埋葬) the death but instead leave it open in the wild wrapped in Tuna fish skin in a helical (螺旋) way. Everyone was inhibited (抑制) from getting near to the burial ground forever as it will bring bad luck for those who ignore the rule.
看了《港督最後一個保鑣》,戏中的一首“好诗”,搞笑令人佩服。有些戏你要重看几次才能深深体会戏中奥妙。看似喜剧,其实是在挖苦当时朝政。
小樓昨夜又春風,雲雨巫山數落紅。
花徑不曾緣客掃,蓬門今始為君開。
除清衫褲去游水,留得餘香有陣除。
游完上岸偷清晒,行路回家只為貧。
家中只得兩個人,乾柴烈火周身痕。
搵勻唔見杜蕾斯,勇者無懼打真軍。
古來薄幸是郎君,珠胎暗結你鬆人。
有緣千里能相會,可憐已是揼波人(可憐歲月已催人)。
Ask HN: Were we more productive 10, 15, or 20 years ago? The question raised was related to development works itself. Were we? When comes to web development, not really, more marketing hype and too many choices available. Furthermore, too many tools, and too many abstractions. In other words, paralysis by analysis or decision fatigue, which made us ends up doing nothing.  What worse, we were bombarded by so-called news these days which read like tabloid instead. Technology made things done faster but at a price, we're more disconnected and distracted. Or maybe we (those reaching middle age) are more grumpier.

The Pilot System rule. The first system will always developed incorrectly somehow due to lacking of understanding and edge cases. Focus on the programmer productivity instead of focusing on optimizing the system itself.

Lesson learned when breeding Betta fish. We've made a few mistakes by our self and pretty much can relate to the breeder himself.

While we're talking about fish, the best video so far on using salt in your aquarium or towards your fish. We must be using salt wrongly, no salts are created equally, even chemical components are different!
