Right vs Wrong (Part 1)

There is no better examples of evolving definition (during the lifetime of person) than the definition of right or wrong.

When we are little the definition of Right and Wrong is absolute. The adults define them (especially our parents). What the show as Right is Right and what they treat as Wrong is Wrong. That is the time when everyone see right and wrong as binary, the simpler times which our mind will ache for in future. Telling lies are wrong, stealing is wrong.

As we grow right around the time we start school, we learn that right and wrong are relative. There are little lies and big lies, little truths and honest truth. We learn to navigate this world with our friends and young foolish loves. This relative truths are based on the absolute truth from which we grew. Where in the absolute world a lie is wrong. In the relative world, simple and small lie here and there is fine. As long as it doesn’t hurt anyone, and it makes your life simpler.

Books I Read 2020

I have seen many people write about the favorite books that they read in (2020, 2019, etc). I have a friend who has been posting regularly for almost a decade. Feeling inspired from this, here is my list of books that I read in 2020. I do like reading books, but I haven’t been able to keep up with as much as I would have loved to read. 2020 allowed me to catch up a bit, and hope to continue that.

PS: Unlike most others who write their favorites, mine is pretty much just a list of books I read.

What You Learn From Binge Watching

Binge Watching or Marathon watching is the practice of watching multiple episodes of a television program in rapid succession, typically by means of DVDs or digital streaming (Source: Oxford Dictionary). It has become a more common pass time or activity for the common people. It has become something that is planned and prepared to do alone or as a group. The availability of shows on demand through streaming service is the reason behinds huge growth of this activity, from a casual reference here and there to a more common social activity.

There is the joy of waiting for each episode, per week. Discussing theories for the next episode and reviews of the previous one with friends or other fans. This is still there even when you binge watch. Just that instead of the next episode you are discussing about the next season.

But what I wanted to write is not about what binge watching is or how it is (or it is not) good. What I wanted to talk about is, what I learned or noticed binge watching old TV shows or a long 10/11 season TV shows. The good points that I feel like is good to know or keep in mind in ones life. The one here is me of course 😁.

[TIL] Starting Ruby Method With Capital Letter

Last day while I was browsing through some Java code online, I noticed that some method has names starting with capital letters. I Method names are written in small letters in ruby. This Java code made me wonder if there was anything preventing us from using method names starting with capital letter, in ruby. So I started my irb and wrote the following code. 1 2 3 def Test puts 'testing 123' end And when I ran to call the method Test in the irb i got the following error.

When My Alarm Was Found to Be Not Working

Due to some unfortunate events

  1. Loosing my phone
  2. K-alarm crashing

I faced a common problem for many people “No alarm to wake me up in the morning”. Like every single man, I love sleeping. So unless an alarm or person wakes me up, I will continue to enjoy sleeping - until the urge from my second passion (hunger) wakes me up.

Despite the fact that I love sleeping, my team mates at Ruby Kitchen, won’t be happy with me coming late to work. Challenged with such a problem, I did what every computer hacker would do.

Wrote a program to wake me up, at 6:00 AM 😁
