[PH]Why baby girls are killed

I have always wondered why many cultures in the world systematically kill baby girls. According to the laws of evolution, this widespread practice should bring survival advantages.

A recent research data makes me wonder if I have hit the jackpot of explaining the edge of such brutal practice.

This research investigate sex-sensitive neural changes under psychological and physical (immunological) stress.

When boys are either under chronic pressure, or have some inflammation (e.g. allergy caused by pollution), they don't show the same level of change to the neurons as girls do. They need BOTH to get the same change, which would lead to heightened chance of depression during future exposure of the same factors (either of the two kinds of stress).

It means girls who are raised in a poor family OR not loved by those close to her, will have a PHYSICAL risk factor of developing emotional disorder if they don't have a good life afterwards, or catch an inflammatory disease like COVID-19.

This is a huge problem because females tend to be the caretaker, and a depressed one is harmful to not only herself but all those around her.

It means girls who grow up in a harsh environment are easily not viable as a mum.

Killing them when they are a baby might actually save the family precious resources when there was no social benefits nor community support for depressive patients.

Though, obviously, this practice would be a great lost to the society since theoretically for every baby girl killed, it entails a man is not having his bride born into the world and he would see himself as "a loser". This would effectively destabilize the whole area.

The problem is, social benefits don't really work without a full-flown democracy and there are just too many societies which are not compatible with this method of running the machine.

[科幻動畫]7-seed二季(1-12完)看後感(下)

花的過去終於開估了。我想說我有點羨慕她有那樣的父母。如果孩子是個天生的冒險家,正確的培養方法就是教會各種探險知識、安全意識和生存技巧,而不是關他在房子裡只能做考試會考的題目。每個人性格不同,幸福的生活模式會有所出入,強加自己認為是幸福的一套只會造成不幸。花和馬群的尋水旅程我看得很爽,而最後早餐吃肉的那一段簡直就是T*B的劇情公式。人類社會的其中一個公式就是人類某些個體非常友善和好相處,能夠輕鬆取得信任,然後另外一些個體就專門對「無防人之心」的下手。

人類社會一直以來就是這樣不斷壯大的——「人類社會」有如花那一段「一個人大冒險」的劇情裡「水源上的肉食植物」的情景互相輝映。

「HMS Fuji的最後一天」這一段的劇情我覺得概念不錯。最後弄停核彈的一如所料是細菌,而令細菌散播開去的,係隊裡最「弱」但被迫在船裡四處跑的夏。

大家一起看日出的那一段劇情我覺得做得不錯。人類是從大自然進化出來的生物,所以大自然裡本來就存在能滿足人類需要的精神食糧,所以反過來說人工化的居住環境會令人容易精神崩潰。但有精英思想的人很難接受這種想法,因為「日出(對他們來說)來是象徵新一天來臨,也就是更多的艱苦測試和過不到就會死的挑戰」,也因此HMS Fuji的慘劇會用各種形式不斷在現實裡發生。

本來精英的命運就是去挑戰普通人「過不到關」的問題,以及在社會裡擔當「負起人命」的責任的角色,所以對他們來說很多東西的聯想都不一樣。

在人工的環境裡,當人們遇上不幸的事情,就只能求助於其他人,然後如果那不是人解決到的問題,就會絕望自殘。對人與大自然的關係,我覺得大部分科幻作者(包括我)都是認同芬蘭教育以及日本神道的那種觀念,本作也不例外。

所以第二季大結局前某位前警官到最後終於想通了,就把山埃丟了。有些做法,是因為人被「社會」困死而衍生出來的解;當社會不存在,這些概念和做法也就沒有原有的意義了。

作為面向主流觀眾的Netflix作品,我覺得作者很努力地用小學生也能看得懂的劇情去演譯這些大學哲學的理念,其實很有勇氣。雖然我超級想知道普通人能看到多少就是了。

[科幻動畫]7-seed二季(1-12完)看後感(上)

最近幾個月工作實在太辛苦(主要是車程和飯程問題),終於因為工作又疏落下來有時間精力可以補番。

因為這套開宗名義是Netflix片,所以不寄厚望——主流觀眾喜歡的是「劇力」,所以要求故事太認真是很難達到的。

這一季的重頭戲是一班精英心態很重遇上一班「得過且過」的組合為生存而擦出的火花。解謎方面只有小學生程度,完全無法令我心跳加速——這種時候超級想念城平京。

劇力是很夠,夠我兩天就吃完了這四小時的「長電影」。

作者很完美的示範了人類社會是怎麼生存下來的——得過且過的傢伙很能活在當下,相反制度下的精英雖然個人能力很強,但反而有可能因為是那種很容易被洗腦的類型,所以才會很乖很理智地「努力玩遊戲」務求「測試過關」,而且對於自己心裡面想要什麼總是有各種程度的扭曲理解;相反某些看來很任性、自由放任的傢伙,反而對精神控制很有抗性,因為他們能面對自己的心情,內省能力很高。

而那個「想辦法處理掉失敗者」的精英個性的刻劃雖然反映事實,但寫出來很突兀,真的看得我啼笑皆非。

很會找樂子的人其實不很能適應高度發展的社會,因為他們就算回到原始文明他們都不會日子過得很悲情,所以缺乏強大動機去「順應」發達社會對成員複雜煩瑣的要求,很容易會變成「失敗者」,但他們面對災難時意外地能成功活下去。所以我對於中國熱衷玩基因防罪並不很支持,因為參考巴西那些基因相對單一的部落被COVID-19全滅、同病之下美國有色人種多幾倍的死亡率(剛出了報告說三成美國黑人為「同宗」,解釋了問題所在)——老老實實上天的幽默就是太努力搞國安,有天變成「國滅」不出奇。上天給的試卷就是社會上就是要有各種各樣的人,良好的管治方式就是令大家都有自己的崗位互不侵犯並可以各自過得不錯,可你就是堅持要出貓……那就要小心被上天DQ,成為歷史上的反教材。

科學家已經在自閉症、情緒障礙等研究證實思考傾向和免疫能力有強大的因果及基因同源關係,意味人類個體間能力差異大係免疫反應多元化的表現,能免於新型疫症發生時全軍覆沒。反過來說,從基因上追求認知傾向的統一,基本上就是等同集體自殺。像香港這種「奇人」特多、人們祖先來自五湖四海的地方,生命力注定特別驚人。所以,港女「食洋腸」的行為其實很符合科學理性以及有利真正的「國安」。

Getting away from the 80/20 rule (2/2)

The problem then comes: how do you create a society where people are really working to improve each other's life?

So the first thing would be an education which testifies people's talent effectively. They will know what kind of responsibility they can take when they graduate so they don't ruin their jobs by trying too hard to get a highly paid one which they cannot do well. Such education would generally be very challenging to most but students are persuaded to work hard because the ability to work hard is something comparable to running a marathon. You can't just do it with will power and your endurance is something you gently build for years. No kid can do a marathon you know.

The second thing is DEMOCRACY. It is a system that allows a society to slowly evolve into one that would improve people's lives. People will take turn to propose how their lives could be improved and the society will assess the available resources and do what they can. Improved lives bring in new productivity by releasing people's potential. Technology is innovated to generate more resources and provides novel means to acheive what was seen to be impossible.

It is a self-fulfilling prophecy BECAUSE those who believe in the above theory will work hard to study and try hard to "contribute to the society" in ways befitting of their own talents which they have worked hard to explore and master. They can recognize each other easily and naturally form the core of a competitive and vibrant social system where voices are heard and needs are catered.

Therefore, the "magic" is not really "democracy". It is THE PEOPLE who are trying hard to give each other their best side and actively sought for a better world for all. Democracy is just like a religious motif or ceremony which gives a nudge to people into the way they should walk.

If technology is not there to bring good things to people's lives, many talented people would just stop doing researches and innovations for fear that people's lives would become worse as their work is used to exploit them further -- most people are born with their empathy intact.

This is why the thought of "people should be equal" brings about group productivity and technology advance eventually.

Getting away from the 80/20 rule (1/2)

Many parents in HK have noted that not only in HK, but in the whole world, top schools and high-achieving figures are often along the Christianity lineage.

No, I am not talking about "religion" or "Christians".

The so-called Christianity lineage, which the Danes seperate from a certain religion, is all about "values people work hard to uphold and how a society is run".

Jesus talked about how people are equal before God.

People thought about how equality can be achieved and sustained.

Once human beings have a goal to attain, working hard and realizing it follows -- talented people often manage to create things that did not exist before.

The concept of "equality" is highly appealing because human beings are social animals. We instinctively feel down when we are not respected by others. When people are depressed, they seldom are productive and often do harm to themselves and others.

Mutual respect needs hard ground to build on. In any social setting, lazy people will not be respected by the hard working ones, but people are lazy because they don't think they can win a game even if they try; while people who work hard naturally are those who think they can win the game of life if they try (and that is the 80/20 mechanism), but then those winning ones would have the very reason to look down on the losers coz the losers didn't even try. People are never born equal in terms of talents. We need SOMETHING that motivates even the mediocre to work hard and that turns out to be a society where people work hard to improve each other's life. There comes the motivation for all to work hard (and thus collective competitiveness).

第三次世界大戰開始

基本戰向已定——到底最後哪種生活模式會成為世界主流呢?國界甚至語言和宗教都已經不是重點了。作為香港人,最近兩年都開始明白「生活在哪(國界定義)」已不是重點,而是「生活在怎麼樣的世界」才是最重要的。

大家會選擇把政府當成神那樣來尊敬、逆來順受自我安慰,願意接受不能理解的介入,還是每個人都有能有志可以擔起平衝各方利益的決策,為自己作出的選擇付上責任(俗稱「自由、真民主」)?

天主教一向都非常努力推廣前者的價值觀,而我近年走訪香港的天主教的活動,發現積極參與的年青人數目幾近是零,所以我不需要看民調結果都知道現實是什麼一回事。因此梵諦岡和中共走在一起,我不很意外。

美心太子女(嬸)說的「放棄年輕人」論,我覺我能夠腦補出她的本意。中共已明確指示香港不可以跑後者的路線,所以香港的年輕人既不願意接受前者的安排,也就只能遠走高飛或者以抗爭為名自殺為實的和老一輩玩攬炒。「收成期」的那班很不高興是可預見的結果。

本來不合則分可以保證世界和平,但問題是主動想要留下來的不是手中有錢想要別人服侍,就是沒有能力或者性格缺乏擔當的人(或者同時是兩者)。這樣的經濟系統根本就不能不像某南美國家那樣慘崩。香港要是這樣崩,真的對大部分國家都沒有好處。

各國政府都不是傻的,所以這裡有個天大的死結,一定要有巨大的設定轉變才可以解決。

例如有某個病毒把那些低生產潛力的都踢走(當然會錯殺良民,一如的確有些人對疫苗有嚴重不良反應),但統計上成功。美國的醫療數據已說明老人院死亡率係正常十倍,而基層工作者也明顯中招率高很多——印度發現多達四成患者完全沒事趴趴走,只有不夠五分一會發燒。

如果死剩少量「收成期」,那不用留很多人力就已經夠服侍他們——總有人沒有外語天分(包括普通話),今生不會幻想移民。那麼其他人就可以走了。土地留給仍在的那一群,然後因為人少錢多,人工不只可以提升,樓價自然因為用家少租金撐不住最後只能下調,民生問題在可見將來就能自然解決,怒濤中的人工島也就不必起了。能走二百萬(先進民主國家因為COVID19失去的人口應該到最後埋單每個平均都不見幾十萬,所以如果香港人願意去「填坑」支持一下樓價,就能各取所需了)其實最好不過。

所以港政府係真正的「加速師」之說塵囂至上,而民建聯等建制派故意搞大型無口罩的互噴口水聚會,動機「可圈可點」。

等香港這個死結解開,自然就會開打。象徵式的打,打出牙齒印(例如南海無人島被轟)之後就會「絕交」。不同體系的經濟系統互相交流到最後雙方都會崩潰。All for one和one for all的市場平衡點根本就不同。

所以Pompeo說得好,每個國家都要看看自己該站哪裡。大家企好了,然後就會開局了。

我們這些香港薯民的出走,只是象徵開局的炮彈。

[OVA]Pale Cocoon

It has been quite some years since I watched a stand-alone OVA of the length of a normal anime episode.

People had moved to the Moon and the memory of the old life on Earth has become something people no longer want to know about, something no more than records on some old newspaper cuttings lying in a drawer.

When the protagonist watched the decoded MV about the trip people were forced to take due to the deteriorating Earth environment, he finally got the motivation to leave the underground facilities and saw, for the first time in many centuries may be, a blue Earth...

To many artists, human beings are like cancer cells of Earth. We multiply at an enormous speed, taking up spaces and other natural resources from other species, squeezing out all the normal ecosystems and build our own, with a consumption rate so alarming that our history has been full of bloody wars.

This view can be presented from the negative angle such as this one: when people are managed such that we are self-contained, people lack the energy to live on. Even if there is only one male and one female in the vicinity, where people are obliged to form a relationship for survival of the species, spark just doesn't really occur.

This short work is a very powerful and emotional reflection on who we are. Human beings are energized by luxury and abundance because we are highly intelligent.

The Earth is just a cradle which we are destined to climb out from. We are not entitled to ruin the cradle for the sake of other animals that share the same planet as us. We should make our leave before we soil the whole planet, and we should master the technology to fully provide for ourselves (not just barely surviving) in the deep space before time runs out.

It is a short story without any real action or romantic spark but it has a powerful aftertaste of which most audience would be able to feel.

David production真的很能發揮大久保老師的那種分鏡和人設的獨特「視覺表情」。看完真的有那種全身像是被火鳳凰的火焰更新了一次的威力。

第五個純粹之炎覺醒的新角色女生的心路歷程真的描畫得很好。然後Arthur實力大爆發的前因後果真的簡潔而非常有力——大久保的心理描畫越來越精詣。再來就是主角的殺意被好好地發洩出來真的很舒暢。壓抑了那麼多集我都快忍不住了。有Arthur陪打真是太幸福了。

這套實在畫得太好了,好到我不想看漫畫被劇透,還是第一次呢。

[Netflix movie]Ni no Kuni (Second Kingdom)

I really didn't expect my childhood dream composer Joe Hisashi would be doing film music nowadays, and Ghibli doing the character design and recycling their design of Howl and Ashitaka (mixed together) certainly managed to ring something really weird in me.

Joe's "music vocabulary" is very easy to recognize especially when it comes to fantasy anime like this one. Ghibli's character design must be used with particular script and personality settings and this story definitely doesn't maximize the "magic" that has always been brought by the time-tried duo. I do sympathize that Netflix productions are usually very compact in its time schedule so many things just don't really match up.

I didn't play the game so the setting was a bit of surprise to me. For me, Haru and Yu don't look like the "same" soul to me at all. I have read many stories with similar settings such as Clamp's Tsubasa Chronicles and I really feel that the special chemistry of "two innately similar characters from two different worlds isn't well played in this presentation of the script.

The plot is actually very good in terms of creative concept. I really like the ideas such as similar people from different worlds crossing the boundary to help each other out, while lives of linked souls share their fate despite never meeting each other face to face.

Feeling Canon and being unwise

Recent outbreak of COVID-19 in groups which identify themselves with the "canon" political stand hints at the trap where people overgeneralize their image of being "correct" and make unwise decisions that is downright "stupid" from other's point of view.

No doctor would approve of 20 people chatting and eating (=without mask and high chance of spreading virus) in a crowded small space (such as a non-luxurious flat in Hong Kong) or hundreds of people eating, dancing and singing without masks in an indoor space for hours, under current global health circumstances.

Remember they were not only putting themselves in danger. There were elderly people in those groups, and these people should at least be pals, if not loved ones who share the same political views (or hobby). Theoretically speaking they should not be happy to see their dear friends attached to a ventilator.

It is VERY dangerous to laugh at these people for being "selfish" because we will forget that it is the darker side of human nature behind such mistakes. Being intentionally evil is perhaps preventable by a good strong will. Unconsciously so is much harder to stop.

How the Italian doctors back then not very long ago reacted to the suggestion of washing their hands before tending their patients. They meant no harm to their patients albeit they sure have killed some of them with literally dirty hands.

Human nature is full of twists and therefore laughing at others for their mistakes is perhaps the most dangerous thing one can avoid from doing.

老實說我覺得不是民主好不好,而是現在不少人都覺得很煩、對家的價值觀完全不能接受,就在開打的邊緣了,雙方各自都有「攬炒」派——英國人歷史修養好,一看就知道兩邊基本上都沒有理智可言了,連忙出招叫人快點走,希望減少不必要的傷亡。反正香港這樣搞到劏房處處,連千呎豪宅的房間都仍然是劏房格局的可悲玩法,空氣污染再減廢也難以達標,下一代的競爭力(尤其體力)如何真的不用再問了。不是他們的錯。

回正題。只要經濟一直發展下去,「家庭」教肓的經濟競爭力的確是越來越低,到最後會變成英國那種寄宿學校的形態,家庭生活只是人生的點綴那樣。不過管理團隊的政治水平和教學理念一定要很高(大概因而一個注重普世價值的宗教是必要的……),不然學校生態會很黑暗,畢竟未經教化的小孩十之八九會有「獸性」,而部分成年人會因長年接觸而心智「退化」。

除非好像丹麥那樣,因為相對早地就把整體的國民教育水平拉了上去,而且曾經何時「單一民族」,學校的功能變成純粹的集體靈修、競技(包括學術)、補習和課外活動的場地,因為孩子從小就有自學自理的精神(因為家長的家教水平高),家長很快就只是個監督,這樣的教育形態才是最便宜的。

COVID-19基本上就是把未去到丹麥這種階段的國家從先進經濟體系給刷下去的「終結者」,再迫那些「差不多達到」的加速進化——因為對於「全民接種」,我是不樂觀的,因為患者的抗體反應三個月就沒有了,T-細胞為主的抗疫能力不是人人都有足夠的生活質素維持。而且大概就算是疫苗,也難以有半年的時效。半年之內,難以全世界都打上一針啊。更何況現在疫情還未見頂呢,到能大量生產疫苗之時,大概有些國家醫療體制早已捱不住崩了,他們分分鐘連打疫苗的人手都不會有。

「香港」最後會站在「被終結」的一邊,是顯然易見的,因為大部分能實行丹麥式家教的成年人都沒錢/沒樓難以給下一代良好的居住環境和合符理念的學校,更重要的是超長時間的工作文化不容許家長進行有效的監督(時數幾近差一倍……)。

但,歷史一向證明經濟繁榮絕對是可以用血汗(人權)來換的,所以有同理心的香港人快逃:香港不能沒有強大的經濟活動支撐,救不到又留下來真的只是自虐自殘,要有絕後/心理崩潰的準備。

小孩超貴(上)

最近不同國家有很多孩子都因疫情不能上學,不少人終於發現對國家來說,其實養小孩是很貴的經濟活動,而經濟競爭力來至怎麼把成本壓下去。

要是沒有學校和強制教育,沒了大家都上學的朋輩壓力,很多小孩跟本不願天天學習,再說家裡也不是人人都有像樣的學習環境——學校一般都比較最窮的家庭整齊清潔。

要是沒有肯一次過照顧很多學生的老師,很多家長都要在家裡照顧孩子,這樣勞動市場自然就競爭小了很多——老闆每一分錢的投資所得到的人力質素明顯會低很多;而且如果每個家庭的孩子數目統計上一樣,上一代的教育程度就會複製到下一代,就算有兩、三小時的網上教學,始終小孩子大部分有精神的時間都是在家裡過,人力資源依然難以一代就脫胎換骨如香港。

另外要是孩子沒能大部分時間在學校這種團隊生活的形態中渡過,大部分孩子缺乏比較和交流,難以發展出能夠相容的價值觀(因為家教怎麼解釋一個做法可以有很大的不同,例如你為什麼要工作——有些家長會說是賺錢養家,有些是強調比起動物吃上天給你的東西有保障,有些是出人頭地證明自己的價值,還有就是貢獻社會孝順父母),將來出社會工作,會多了很多爭執和對抗(例如會有人看不起做賺不到大錢的工作的人;又有人會拼命把別人踩下去為了證明自我;有些人很有道德原則覺得不重視社會貢獻家庭有善的老闆是無良;有些人會覺得沒有福利等保障的工作根本就不是正當的工作<-你看看這裡多少題材可以搞出吵不完的架),不利協作創新的經濟發展。香港不久之前才推出全日制的小學,所以現在香港的成年人大部分的價值觀都深受家庭(大部分父母都是移民!)影響,因此社會分裂的程度絕對不是立法或者洗腦廣告可以搞定,而是每個細節位都有各自不可退讓的想法,而正當的解決方法就是建立民主制度讓大家有個「各退一步」的空間。<-好明顯會有很多人不認同這種能讓各方建立互相尊重的手段,因為他們沒覺得有必要尊重別人的想法,覺得要說服人好麻煩不如來硬的更快;當雙方都這樣想就鐵定會真的打起來。

COVID-19 is the world-changer of 21st century

As the world population increases, and more permafrost melts, more episodes like the COVID-19 is going to enter human history.

Many things will change PERMANENTLY.

Social distancing is the key to slow down transmission of novel diseases and this will change how people with low income is going to entertain themselves. Large social gatherings such as going to bars to watch soccer will no longer work.

The global similarity of low-income jobs is that people will feel very lonely and boring with social distancing. They are very prone to melancholic episodes and substance abuse leading to sudden death will soon surge.

Drug trafficking will soon regain a significant role in the economy of the less developed world and countries will have to resort to being unfriendly to each other on the surface to stop extradition in order to keep the related criminal activities supporting the economy in the dark.

Bickering over minor issues, using strong words that is going to offend the other side is the telltale sign of such a state of affairs.

Things are turning ugly in many aspects for human history. I can see many forces are working hard to recreate the straited social structure seen in the history textbooks in developed parts of the world. Forums are filled with posts that are made to elicit negative feelings in those who are blessed with more resources than the others.

Remember life is NEVER fair and therefore we exist for each other to make the world a better place to live in. You might despite someone for being poor and unable to support their family. It might just be that the society is not wealthy enough to pay them properly for their jobs (which is in huge demand), or invest enough for them to release their potential. With the same line of logic, people who insist that people should be happy for being poorly paid (saying it is a virtue to be poor) or trying to say a life without sustainable development to be "a norm" one should see as a blessing, is also trying to create stratification that would take centuries to overcome.

The black people of US has not yet able to overcome the stratification created 200 years ago. This is because once people think being poor is a virtue and a life without sustainable development is a blessing, they will build aesthetics and learning habits that would create tragedies once they stray away from their pathetic state.

Real evil always makes you satisfied with what you should not be happy with.

散水!

圈子裡開始有人移民了。不是「說」而是做了。為什麼?因為政府對民生問題不作為。

事實上慈雲山爆疫有社區失控之勢,因為找不到感染源頭的比例不小,但所有人都注意到中心點是慈雲山中心。

行山友無一不熟悉慈雲山中心——我是跑了那麼多次的沙慈古道,進去該商場的數目十隻手指數得完。

原因?這商場的冷氣很髒,我每次留超過半小時就會想嘔。很多老人家會坐在那裡乘涼(因為在家開冷氣要錢),然後難免見到老友就會扯高聲量吹水(因為老人家耳朵不好)。洗手間更是髒,去過一次之後不會再去。

最後就是科學的風水問題:巴士總站的髒風總是被商場「吸盡精華」。

基本上有些很根本的民生問題一向都存在,然後政府沒有作為。所以星火一燎,就爆炸了。這樣的政治格局不改,有能力的都會逃跑。

「廢老唔戴罩」只是問題的一角。「劏房」很危險大家都知道,所以有能力逃跑的都會暫住親友家(劏房環境差,沒人會留戀啦),另外大部分人都會有危機感,所以反而不是「最危險的」。

想不久之前有人說「宜昌以下,跑」,現在Twitter上的超大型水浸片越來越多,全世界都知道中國人的命運就是要懂逃亡。大山大河意味政府不會有能力擋廿年一遇的大洪水,不懂跑死守家園的就要有心理準備每代清零一次。

半年甚至三個月就要打一次的疫苗不會人人有份,所以到最後誰能保持社交距離誰就有經濟優勢。

所以我要對自稱「經濟動物」的香港人說:散水!

p.s. 約五百年前丹麥首都都「散水」了一次,最後人口跑了一半,才能保住繁榮穩定至今。丹麥傳統一向珍惜言論自由(不是我說的),所以「散水」之必要性和民主之類的政見分歧其實沒有關係,純粹就是物理需要。

Being true to your audience

I dislike recent versions of Samsung and Apple's phone camera softwares for their dishonest makeup of the colors for the photos taken with their products. It might be nice to take a picture of a mundane scenery and have the machine rendering the colors to make it presentable on IG or FB.

However, as an experienced hiker, I don't need that function.

My 4-yr-old HTC is reasonably honest in this aspect and I can capture the kind of photos like the one below without difficulty, and I'd like to tell my audience that "this is exactly what I saw on that day".

My next phone (the current one's battery is obviously degrading) is going to be one which boasts of "being true to the real colors".

人類有很多不同的屬性,有一兩種偏離正常(就當是十分之一吧)是很平常的。假設人有5種互相沒有關係的屬性,五個數值都是「正常」的機會只有一半左右。
但是如果五個數值之中,同時有三種是「不正常」的,那麼100人之中,就只有不到一人,堪稱「異界人」了。
