No response from Foxasia ...

Few days ago I was watching Castle on TV. There was an advertising saying that if I captured Castle and Beckett in interogation room and send it to foxasia@fox.com I would get a chance to get a copy of Castle graphic diary (which is a comic). So, while watching the series I took snapshots on my camera. Hoping that it would show the TV screen.

Mailed it to the email address. No response. Not even an acknowledgement. I felt cheated. Oh well. I guess next time I wouldn't participate in any of that (from Fox).

There ...

Nobody Wants to be an Engineer, anymore

I looked around in my neck of the wood. It seems that youngsters want to become artists, singers, and the like. Basically they want to be in the entertainment industries. Nobody seems to be interested in engineering anymore. That's scary.

Being an engineer, I love the idea of building stuff. Creating things. Building the world. Sometimes it is man againsts nature. It is not easy, but it is fun. Let me emphasize it again, it is not easy. Period.

There is an illusion that being popular is fun. In reality, it is not always. It's a grand illusion.

On the other hand, youngsters don't know what it's like being an engineer. Maybe we should write more about this. Tell stories. Heck, even make a great movie about it. No, not Inspector Gadget-kind of movie, but a cool movie. Any takers?
