Why Brunei Can't....

Someone said to me that this blogsite is getting too serious and that he can't smile anymore when he is reading the articles. I have to agree. I think the topics lately have been a little too heavy for some. But today, I thought we will have some light hearted moments laughing at ourselves. If you don't understand no.3, just stick to no.1 and no.2.

1. Why Bruneians can't stop at junctions.

There was this Brunei driver who, when driving his car, would always accelerate hard before coming to any junction, whizz straight over it , then drive normally again (fast) once he'd got over it. One day, he took a passenger, who was understandably unnerved by his driving style, and asked him why he went so fast over junctions. The Brunei driver replied, "Well, statistically speaking, you are far more likely to have an accident at a junction, so I just make sure that I spend less time there."

So, now you know why Bruneians love to zoom through changing redlight at junctions.

2. Why Bruneians can't hold on to their money.

Theorem: 1$ = 1c.

$1 = 100c
$1 = (10c)^2 {10 cents squared}
$1 = ($0.10)^2
$1 = $0.01
$1 = 1c

Now you know why Bruneians can't hold on to their money. They treat $1 as 1 cent!

3. Why Brunei can't win.

An In**nesian, a Bruneian, and a Mal**sian are trying to set up a fenced-in area for their claims, but they have a limited amount of material. The In**nesian gets up first and makes a square fence with the material, reasoning that it's a pretty good working solution.

"No no," says the Bruneian, "there's a better way." He takes the fence and makes a circular pen, showing how it encompasses the maximum possible space with the given material.

Then the Mal**sian speaks up: "No, no, there's an even better way." To the others' amusement he proceeds to construct a little tiny fence around himself, but he then declares:

"I define myself to be on the outside."

No wonder, we can't win.

Finally, I received an email that had all this pictures of answers to 5 mathematical questions not done in shall we say, the conventional way. Words are unnecessary. Enjoy.

Haha, I got that email too, but I didn't get all five, only four of them. You should read a forwarded email on a job resume that was sent by a 'degree holder student' to an 'engineering company' (if im not mistaken). Now that cracked me up as well. Hehe.
Speaking of red lights, a friend of mine who love to speed always say 'sampat ni, sampat!' at the event of the lights changing to yellow. Hehe.

When Bruneian see the Green light, they go at a normal speed.

Yellow light, meaning have to step more on the accelerator

Red light, means you have to rush tru it.

Next time, you should blog about why stupid drivers never know which lane to take at the Kiarong/Kiulap round-about.

Hi.. i was just about to comment about the traffic light in Brunei.. sometimes it is not wise to stop at yellow, cause some traffic light takes a long time to turn red..

the problem why people don't stop at traffic light is because we take such a long time to start moving after the light turns green. If people are ready to move at green, no one would dare to jump the red light.

why can't we adopt the british traffic light? before lights turn green, both red and yellow light will go on, indicating to get ready.

uhm ur supposed to square the $1 as well.. hehe then it'll make sense.. cos if u square $1... it will always equal to $1.. :)

and three lanes roundabout atu...i always stick to the middle lane hehe and alhamdulillah so far ok...

heee and about langgar red lites.. yeaaa im one of those person...

i think not becos its a torture but mcm instilled in my brain that if u brake.. then accelerate again.. ull use up more fuel heee... so alang alang... if sampat teruskan saja... which is of course dangerous.. uhm... hope my dad aint reading dis blog hihi...
