Another record first for Singapore

Singapore is the only nation in the world..., that encourages its students to be creative, "think out of the box,"... - and ask questions during lessons... - but once these students turn into MPs.... they will be "encouraged by law" to ask at most 5 questions during Parliament - of which at least 2 shall not have to be answered (at least orally. I'm not too sure about "physically"..., "sexually"... , or otherwise though#).

Smallest number of questions allowed by an MP in Parliament: 5, belonging to the all-time record-holder of Singapore

And in other news..., NUS is ranked 18th among the world's top 200 universities..., while the free press in Singapore continues to be ranked 'hiiiighly free.' Free to continue to be at the bottom, that is.


# - in spite of this..., I believe that we will not be morphing into another Taiwan anytime soon.

hey this site is great. Singaporeans are waaay too apathetic - socially, politically...and everything else in between.

its nice to hear actual opinions from a Singaporean once in a while.
