Agree SOME Americans are clueless, but not every American is clueless, and not every clueless American is clueless about everything. He is SLEEPer lah. Just like Singaporeans lor, sama-sama. Have them in every country. :oops: :shrug: but at least we don't profess to be able to 'save' anyone... :rotflmao: Don't forget we all have different coloured eyes, and some eyes are green (oops, hazel).
I was very specific about defining the object of my ire, "THE clueless American out to 'save' the unwashed", of which there are quite a few, but by no means a generalisation of all Americans, if that were even at all possible.
I guess I misinterpreted the "personifies" word you used, thinking you meant he is a personification of a typical clueless American.

Have to visit to know lah... never visited before. Certainly the weather is not as cold, the food in Singapore is probably better, Yale is less humid, the rest... :shrug:

Don't know who the faculty will be 5 years from now... :wink: if Singaporeans, then like Singaporean uni lor.

Yep, I understand it could be read that way, thanks for the opportunity to clarify. My work colleagues are international, there are nice and not-so-nice Americans, just like there are nice and not-so-nice Singaporeans.

I look forward to Yale setting up shop. I am by nature conservative in my outlook, so I'm sure there will be plenty of head-banging, but also plenty to learn from a 'liberal-arts' college. One should not get too stodgy in old age, yeah? :wink:

There are also clueless and not so clueless Americans/ang mos, and clueless and not so clueless Singaporeans/Asians too. Just that the ratio might different slightly, depends on the industry. :wink:

I am actually surprised that Singapore would want to set up a liberal arts college... question is why does Singapore want to set up a liberal arts college? :? Is adding the 'law' part an afterthought to add a new justification? Cannot figure... :shrug:

Been a while since this was discussed - anyone's DS/DD in Yale-NUS? Whats the general sense like other than the nice facilities? Wondering what's the RP requirement , how difficult it is to get scholarships (saw on Reddit that half the students receive some aid, but understand that 1/2 of the students are foreigners - so how are the aid/scholarship distributed? The Yale NUS websites are rather opaque on the income level for aid too. Any comments appreciated!

So.....this is part of "Liberal Art" education?

Why has it taken them so long to realise the problem running "Sex Week" for so many years?
