Timothy Tye's Just Curious

I am a very curious person. I want to know so many things. Perhaps that's why I end up writing my website, to continuously satisfy my curiosity. But there are other, often amusing questions which I want to know, usually everyday questions that affect us which I want to ask, both to seek their opinion as well as to satisfy my curiosity. Most of these questions have no wrong answers, and are simply based on the individuals preference. To remind myself of questions that I have asked before, I am compiling them by date. They are listed below.

All these posts appear first on my timeline. Follow me to view the latest.

  1. 2018 Nov 30: Let's say a young person, presently in Form Five, telling his/her parents that he/she does not want to go to university, because there isn't any course that he/she is interested in, and he/she does not want to end up with a job which he/she does not like to do for the rest of his/her life. Also, he/she said that many successful people never went to university. Let's say this young person is your nephew/niece. What would you say to him/her?

  2. 2018 Nov 29: I seldom meet people I friend on Facebook, but if you have a chance to meet me, and ask me one question, what question would that be?

  7. 2018 Nov 24: Is it true that men are better at doing some things, and women are better at doing other things? Is there a truth in that, or are men and women equally good at doing all things?

  8. 2018 Nov 23: You work in a big company. You hired someone to be part of your team. After working there for a while, she and your boss starts to get friendly. You starts to feel that your boss likes her more than you. One day, your boss was promoted, and to fill his vacany, he gave the job to her. Suddenly, she went from being your subordinate to becoming your new boss. You feel you deserve the position more than she. Would you do anything about it?

  15. 2018 Nov 16: You are a young girl working in a large office. Every work day, you would join your colleagues for lunch in the cafeteria.
    Recently, you noticed a new boy at the office. He has his own lunch gang, sitting in a different table from yours, but for some reason, you have developed an interest in seeing him. The way he walks, the way he talks, laughs, it all makes you wish that you know him, be his friend, or better still, his girlfriend.
    You even went department by department, pretending to go somewhere, just to find out where he is seated. It is the first time in your life you are feeling this way about a complete stranger.
    Now you look forward to lunch time, for there's food, not just for the mouth, but for the eyes. From his appearance, he is probably the same age as you, and if it turns out that he is a year or two older, and "available", that would be perfect. But he doesn't even know you exist.
    What should you do?

  16. 2018 Nov 15: Do you usually have your breakfast at home or outside?

  17. 2018 Nov 14: Let's say you have two lunchmates (three women) whom you thought are your good friends, because the three of you always have lunch and share daily gossips together. Then one day, one of them said that she would be on leave on Friday. After she said that, the other lunch mate also said, "What a coincidence, I am also on leave on Friday!"

    By the following Monday, both of them were back having lunch with you, and you thought nothing about it until Tuesday, when you happened to browse Facebook (you don't usually go into Facebook), and saw that the two of them went for a vacation together from Friday to Sunday. They never mentioned they were going away together, they never talked about their vacation over lunch on Monday, and they never invited you to join.
