Life is changing, I am changing
When i arrived at Finland, I was getting quite bored because no one liked to talk about politics and philosophies, if they talked at all. But then i realized that there are no real big problems with these people, so it's natural for them to be like this. The problem was that i wasn't habitual of such a society. After almost 3 months in Helsinki, now i have started to be involved in the life i have and to improve it, rather than the life i can only imagine. although I still feel very lonely most of the time, especially at my home. Got to get a GF soon! :) The problem in achieving this goal is that i don't get to meet a lot of girls and the few i meet are already booked. Otherwise, I would have got a lot of girls, i am sure. :)
I was wondering about the rationale for Monogamy but I couldn't find any. I realized that it's just a method to satisfy feelings of insecurity and jealousy. With this realization, I got more curious regarding this as it's taken for-granted even in (relatively) free countries, such as Finland. So I asked two Finns separately of what they think of Monogamy. Their immediate reaction was the suspicion that I am interested in their partners. After i told them that thats not the case and it's just pure curiosity, they could only say 'Well.. it works', but that is certainly not a satisfactory answer. They told me that it's just a choice and you can just not follow it if you want, but I don't agree with that since that requires the potential partners to also not follow it.
I think we really need to learn much from our distant relatives, chimps. In a chimp tribe, children don't know who their father is. This is because every male in the tribe have sex with almost every female in his tribe. The result is that every child is treated as a son/daughter by every male member of the society. This reminds me of Plato's "Republic". Plato was no doubt a great genius.
Moreover, through an unreliable source, I have come to know that medical sciences declares polygamy as better than monogamy. Can anyone confirm?
Understanding the Finnish women
Last night I was at famous night club in Helsinki, called onella (AKA 'mating place'). It was quite fun as I was able to find some new friends even though i went there alone. I met a guy who could predict if the woman is interested in him or not, very accurately. Then i met his friend, who was with his GF. Since many of the woman didn't even bother to have a chat with me, I ask his GF if the Finnish woman don't like Asian-looking man like me. In reply to that she did something unexpected: she hugged me and said what if say that i am all yours and kissed me just to prove that Finnish girls like me. After a few hours, when the club was to get closed, another blonde told me to watch her drink while she is away and when i said 'yes, of course', she started to kiss me. While kissing she another unexpected thing: she bit me really hard on my tongue.. ughh..
The next morning, my conclusion was that Finnish women are quite unpredictable. But when I told Anna what happened, she said that it was just that they were quite drunk. I am so silly, I didn't consider that.
Gstreamer's RTP plugins
I have been working on the Gstreamer's RTP plugins and it seems that we are soon going to have a very working RTP implementation for gstreamer ready. I am working together with the farsight and tapioca-voip teams on this. Although, much of the work on this front has lately been done by a crazy canadian student, Philipe Khalaf of the farsight project.
