The father & son's donkey


I ask gpt to write me a story about this, and this is what it wrote.

Once upon a time, in a small village nestled in a lush valley, there lived a father and his young son. The father, named Ali, was known for his wisdom and wit, while his son, named Ahmad, was eager to learn from his father's teachings. One day, Ali decided it was time to buy a donkey to help them with their daily chores and to carry goods to the nearby market.

Excited about their new acquisition, Ali and Ahmad set out to the market with their donkey by their side. But little did they know that their journey would be filled with amusing and unexpected encounters that would teach them valuable life lessons.

As they walked through the village, Ahmad insisted on riding the donkey, while Ali walked alongside. They met a group of villagers who were taken aback by Ahmad's behavior. "Look at that young boy riding the donkey while his poor father walks!" they exclaimed in disapproval. Ali and Ahmad took note of their remarks and decided to switch roles.

Next, Ali rode the donkey while Ahmad walked. As they continued on their way, they met a merchant who chuckled at Ali's choice. "What a lazy old man, riding the donkey while his young son walks! Have some respect for your son's energy," he remarked. Ali and Ahmad exchanged glances and decided to ride the donkey together.

As they trudged along, they met a group of children who jeered at them. "What foolishness! Two grown men riding a single donkey, burdening the poor animal!" they taunted. Ali and Ahmad were taken aback and tried to come up with a solution.

Finally, they decided to carry the donkey on a makeshift stretcher, hoping to please everyone. As they crossed a bridge, the donkey wriggled and slipped, falling into the river and ruining their plan. They stood there, soaked and disappointed, realizing that they couldn't please everyone, no matter what they did.

A story that we heard since we were still a kid, and we laugh at people's stupidity.

While laughing, maybe we should check if we are carrying a donkey on our back.

Dilbert Principle - Why incompetent managers exist

I'm a fan of Dilbert comics since I was young, it is just fun to read comics and tease ourselves. One of the thereon, why incompetent managers exist, is given by Dilbert Principle

... the most ineffective workers are systematically moved to the place where they can do the least damage.

I am lucky enough that most of my superiors are competent people, and I learn a lot from them. As an electronics engineer, I learn how to design electrical power systems, understand mechanical design, and design process sequences. 

I do meet moron managers since this world is not perfect, it is never near or will be perfect at any time. Why do these people exist?

Darwin's theory of natural selection said

Individuals with adaptive traits—traits that give them some advantage—are more likely to survive and reproduce. 

By right, these people should be extinct, but they are on top of you.

So, if Darwin is right, they must have some advantage over you. 

Maybe morons are tempted to be luckier, or they can draw better "illusions" than you, or they just can drink more liquor than you.

Like it or not, they will exist around you. The Pareto rule said 80% of the job is done by 20% of the people. So you either choose to join the 80% moron, or you become the 20%. 

Happy working and happy coming holiday*.

2023 New Year Eve

It has been a very long time since I didn't come to this blog. It used to be a place where I like to note down my though, my feeling, and my idea. 

It started with a simple objective, to record my life so that I can look back when I want. It supposes to be a place for me to record the happy and positive moments, but somehow at a certain stage, my life sank into deep shit. I spend a few years struggling to get back my life, then I stop this blogging. At that time, my life is a dark color, and the blog becomes the place I express negative feelings.

After these years, I slowly recovered. I lost a lot but also gain a lot. A new environment, new friends, new ideas, and a new vision, and I will move forward, leaving all the old bad memory behind.

Hope I can spend more time writing again, and pick up from where I left off.

For everyone that stops by, wish you a Happy 2023, leave all the bad luck in 2022, and welcome the good luck of 2023.
