Face of girl or old woman?


What do you see? The face of a girl or an old woman?

The transformation between a girl and an old woman:
- The girl's ear is the old woman's eye.
- The girl's neckline is the old woman's mouth.

Helmet or Hermit


1)  At Bizhao Cliff 避诏崖, HuaShan, China Shaanxi Province - 2018 September
- Red oval: Information board ... see photo #2



2)  Information board (red oval of the previous photo)
- Red rectangle: See photo #3



3)  Information board (red rectangle of previous photo)

Bizhao Cliff is located at the northwest of South Heavenly Gate of HuaShan Mountain.

The rock cavern at the cliffside is said to be the place where Chen Tuan, a helmet early in Song Dynasty, retreated to avoid the imperial edict. Chen was familiar with the doctrines of various schools and astronomy and geography. Song Tai-Tsu and Song TaiZong had issued an imperial edict many times to invite him to the Capital to serve the Imperial Court, which he had politely refused.

The three characters "Bi Zhao Yan 避诏崖" (literally means imperial edict avoiding rock) on the cavern front are said to be inscribed by Chen Tuan himself.
A helmet?  Really?   :-)

Parenting & Childing


Sure, sometimes I question my parenting.
But to be fair, sometimes I also question my kids' childing.

Moses with a tablet


Technically, Moses was the first person with a tablet downloading data from the cloud.

And due to the first commandment, Moses became the first person to have a tablet with fake news.
The first commandment is:
"I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. You shall have no other gods before Me."
Exodus 20:2-3

Land speed


What is your fastest land speed record ?

Mine is 431 km/hr on a Maglev Train in China
    from Longyang Road Station
    to Shanghai Pudong International Airport
2018 October.

What is the experience like riding the train ?

It is relatively quiet and stable, but not as quiet and stable as I had imagined. Well, if you sip from a cup of coffee, the coffee may get spilled on your clothes  :-)

Nonetheless, I am impressed by the speed, especially when 2 Maglev Trains pass each other. The relative speed is then 431 kph + 431 kph = 862 kph. At that speed, in less than the blink of an eye, before the whoosh sound made by the trains passing each other has registered in your brain, the other train is gone !  Well, I had never experienced anything passing so fast close by !


More on the Maglev Train

As at the time of writing, this is the only commercially operated magnetic levitation train in the world; and also the fastest commercially operated train in the world.

From Wikipedia: The line's balance of payments has been in huge deficit since its opening.

From 2004 to 2006, Shanghai Maglev Transportation Development Co. Ltd, the company which runs the line, had more than one billion RMB in losses. The line's lack of profitability derives from its construction for political reasons as a test project for the future of China's rail infrastructure, rather than as a viable market solution for the needs of travelers.
