Odd observable but unnoticed facts

Music ∝ 1/Volume
If the music is not found in your iPod, the volume at which it is played is inversely proportionate to its quality - invariably, music played from handphones are exceptionally loud. Quality does not refer to the bit rate ie. 128, 256, 320kbps.

Nose-diving Drivers
The top 2 activities drivers take part in while stopped at a traffic light: Nose-digging, closely followed by checking out if other drivers are digging their noses. I do both. Simultaneously. ftw.

Although the salinity of the water will change, the "city reservoir" that was created from Marina Bay will not have observable environmental effects. This is because Singapore was not concerned about the ecosystem in the water before and will not be too bothered about it when the seawater in the bay becomes "fresh" water. There is no basis for comparison.

Human Traffic
The human traffic lane system employed at various MRT Stations eg. Outram, Somerset and Orchard will never reach its potent effectiveness in easing human congestion. Until a fine is imposed, enforced and the culprits shamed on The Straits Times, The New Paper, My Paper, Today, Berita Harian, Tamil Murasu, Lianhe Zao Bao and especially Shin Min Daily News (because the 4D results are published in this tabloid).

Danger, May Cause Drowsiness
Passengers who are old, handicapped, pregnant or a combination of any of these descriptors are special. They cause drowsiness in other passengers. Especially in a moving train or bus.
