Let me pop the question, if you were given 4 minutes to save the world, how would you do it?
For a start, I work from home,
please envy me! I get to see my youngest brother everyday when he got off from school. Among the things that we do is, sharpen his math skills. He did tell me he wanted to be a scientist, and math comes in close relation with Science.
5x + 8y = 60, y=5, what is the value of x? (answer: x = 4)
or much harder question like
2x + y = 4, x + y =2, find x & y (answer: y=0, x=2)
That’s considerably tough for a 10 year old. But I managed to find a way to capture his interest. It comes to a point where he said, ‘Abg [1. Abg: abang; a common calling for elder brother], I had enough for today’. Often I ask him to do one last question before wrapping up. Since bribing ice cream doesn’t work anymore, I offer him ‘4 minutes to save the world’. He gladly took up my offer.
Play the the theme song ‘4 minutes to save the world’
Some place in New Mexico, Beta (NH) and Charlie (NH’s youngest brother) plans to save the embassy from a terrorist attack.
Beta : Are you ready bro? We’re going to save the world in 4 minutes.
Charlie : Roger! Let me arrange my weapons first.
Beta : Change to rifle, we’re going mobile! Follow me.
Charlie : Ladies first, be careful bro..!
Beta : Ladies? I don’t recall any Ms. Rodriguez[2. Michelle Rodriguez was the girl the movie SWAT] in our team!?
Charlie : The clock is ticking Beta!
Beta : With my Rambo like machine gun, I can kill them all without taking my shirt off [3. In Rambo, Slyvester Stalone did not take his shirt off like First Blood, Rambo II and Rambo III]!
Charlie : Please, don’t make obscene scenes around here.
Charlie : Beta! I’m shot, I’m dying, I can see the tunnel … It’s so bright!
Beta : Shhhh! Don’t talk! My sexy Belluci[4. Monica Bellucci appeared in Tears of the Sun] meds unit will come and treat you
Charlie : Bro, you have less than a minute to save the world!
Beta : Aaaah! I almost forgot!
Tebabooo!@#%&* I guess A web developer can’t
defused a bomb save the world after all.
And the drama cycle continues for another hour, every weekdays, without fail. Not unless I have outside meetings.
Charlie : Can I be a terrorist next round?
Beta : No! We’re here to save the world.
A gentle reminder by a gentle elder brother *wink*wink*puppy eyes*
Sorry for the bad screen play.
ps: The game is Counter Strike on de_dust map.
pss: Show some love by spending a little bit more time with the young ones. I’m sure it’ll make a hell lot difference ➡
