To many people Singapore is synonymous with paradise on earth. People live in peace and harmony, jobs everywhere, and rich people everywhere. And they get angry over little frills or discomforts which are considered luxuries in other countries.
We have a superb infrastructure that works, everything works. We have a Disneyland in Orchard Road where every inch of the road and pathways are literary pasted with money. And all the famous branded luxury goods are available at every corner of the shopping district.
Our housing, medical facilities are all world class. Our roads are filled with brand new luxury cars. Anything near to 10 years old will be scrapped, and often five or six year old cars will be scrapped too. And our cars are the most expensive in the world. See how rich Singaporeans are, changing to a brand new car every three to four years!
Our public transportation, buses, trains and taxis are also brand new or only a few years old. Definitely not more than 10 years. If I am not mistaken, taxis are taken off the road every six years or something like that.
Everything is new and beautiful. Where else can one find such a beautiful place on earth? And when one is in Orchard Road or Raffles Place, one feels old and out of place if one is in their forties. These places are so refreshingly young, and everyone is young. No old people around, I mean if you are 40 and above, that’s it. You will stick out like a sore thumb, distorted and out of place.
The people, especially the old, the untalented, the misfits, are the only sore point in paradise Singapore. Their presence is a big stain in the almost picture-perfect paradise. If they were removed Singapore would be simply beautiful.
For the oldies, ok, ideas have been tested to send them to neighbouring countries in beautiful retirement resorts. That should take care of one aspect of the ugly problem. For the untalented and the misfits, maybe global warming can help. Soon Antartica will be hospitable enough for human colonies. We can think of despatching them there to start a new life among equals. It is fairer for them, less competitive, and they will no longer be blamed for their unsightly presence.
As for the talent pool, the solution could be easy. Anyone without a university degree or diploma should be ruled untalented and should be sent to Antartica. For those who are rich and successful, no need to fear. Just buy a degree from the degree mills. Even doctorates are quite easy to come by and very affordable. They should then be well qualified as part of the supertalent pool that paradise needs. And with their money, they could replace their ageing parts, plaster themselves with silicone or botox and look like new.
Wow, paradise will be truly beautiful and perfect. I am booking my next flight to Antartica.
