Why English is a Confused Language and Swahili is not

by simon

Posted on Thursday, February 23, 2012 10:01 AM

Let's face it
English is a confused language.
There is no egg in the eggplant
No ham in the hamburger
And neither pine nor apple in the pineapple.
French fries were not invented in France.

We sometimes take English for granted
But if we examine its paradoxes we find that
Boxing rings are square
And a guinea pig is neither from Guinea nor is it a pig.

If writers write, how come fingers don't finge.
If the plural of tooth is teeth
Shouldn't the plural of phone booth be phone beeth
If the teacher taught,
Why didn't the preacher praught.

If a vegetarian eats vegetables
What the heck does a humanitarian eat!?
Why do people recite at a play
Yet play at a recital?
Park on driveways and
Drive on parkways

You have to marvel at the unique lunacy
Of a language where a house can burn up as
It burns down
And in which you fill in a form
By filling it out
And a bell is only heard once it goes!

English was invented by people, not computers
And it reflects the creativity of the human race
(Which of course isn't a race at all)

That is why
When the stars are out they are visible
But when the lights are out they are invisible
And why it is that when I wind up my watch
It starts
But when I wind up this observation,
It ends.

You remember Louis Otieno, the formely high flying media personality in Kenya who seems to have disappeared from our screens. His decline started when he joined Citizen TV, after getting poached from KTN, lets admit he had became a diva!


His decline started when he joined Citizen TV, after getting poached from KTN, lets admit he had became a diva!

Initially he was doing one show a week, his lifestyle was big; he flashed gold bracelets and expensive shoes. And although he had a wife and Kids, he chose another woman over them, a woman who was a few years older than him, because she could pay it all; his family was at one point evicted from their house as he rolled around Nairobi in his VX and his new catch.

Eventually they broke up, Louis was fired from Citizen and moved to K24 where he also did not last, then he met a new young girl, a girl who had access to money. He changed his VX for a Range Rover sport and the lady continued to borrow and take loans to keep them a float. He was preying on her  for what she was worth.

Early 2012 come, the lady's health is deteriorating, plus the stress from the people she owes money is becoming too much for her to bear. She quits her job and joins Loius in questionable business. She did NOT recover a penny from Loius and when she exhausted all avenues of getting money, he went silent. He stopped picking up her calls, he wanted nothing to do with her.

The lady was broken, she celebrated her 26th birthday on 9th Feb 2012, and she wrote on her diary that this was her last birthday. On that Sunday, when she went to see her parents, she gave the whole story and even gave receipts to some of the payments she’d made for him including hospital bills, in total she owed him over 10 Million shillings. 

She is NO LONGER with us, several conflicting reasons are being floated about how the young lady died. Sections of her family say she killed herself, others says she got into a diabetic coma and passed away. But all in all, we ask, Louis, WHY DID YOU DO THIS TO HER?

A city does not need sky high building to look beautiful, it needs friendly weather, friendly people and and of course adequate security and ammenities. I have confidence NRB is not an easy one to beat.

Tuwakenya recently captured a user paroding us on a local chat engine. See the screenshot below.

The big questions remain, can we trust people on chat today? can we tell they male or female, location, age and of course if they are who they claim to be?

Why does water look bluish?

by info

Posted on Sunday, February 19, 2012 03:09 AM

I have asked myself again and again and finally there is an answer.

Water owes its intrinsic blueness to selective absorption in the red part of its visible spectrum. The absorbed photons promote transitions to high overtone and combination states of the nuclear motions of the molecule, i.e. to highly excited vibrations. To our knowledge the intrinsic blueness of water is the only example from nature in which color originates from vibrational transitions. Other materials owe their colors to the interaction of visible light with the electrons of the substances. Their colors may originate from resonant interactions between photons and matter such as absorption, emission, and selective reflection or from non-resonant processes such as Rayleigh scattering, interference, diffraction, or refraction, but in each case, the photons interact primarily or exclusively with electrons.
