Did you know that the Mad Hatter from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is modelled after an occupational disease of the 18th and 19th centuries. In that era, hat makers were heavily exposed to mercury used in the preparation of felt. Consequently, many suffered brain damage and became psychotic, or “mad” (Katy, 1979) This is Organic Psychosis.

Searching for True Love

My MC prof showed this in class today to give us a good example of good public speaking. But clearly there was a deeper message behind, especially for us students in the stage of searching for a life partner.

Anyway, just a fun fact. Did you know that the term “BGR” is only used by Singaporeans? My Prof told us that and the Singaporeans couldn’t believe it! The international students in class were like, what’s BGR? Business Government Relationship? (Since there is a module in my school called BGS – Business, Government and Society)

Back to the deep message about true love that I was talking about, I encourage all of you to watch all five parts of the video. It’s really wise and I am convicted that this IS true love.

God bless you. 🙂

It’s amazing how one song can be interpreted in so many different styles by different artists.
