The only thing is KNOW about Singapore is that when I lived and worked in Israel in the 1980s, I could send away and buy any knockoff US software from Singapore for $5 dollars. $10 if I wanted a copy of the manual to go with it.

Fiction sucks. It's a pack of lies. I never read any, unless you call the Bible "fiction." The only work of fiction that ever made any sense to me besides the Bible was "Brave New World" which in 1932 accurately predicted the world as it is becoming today. Why people waste all their money reading fiction is beyond me, but lying obviously pays.

The guy writes about places he's never been and knows nothing about.
