# Marvin

.

Marvin, the Paranoid Android is a fictional character in The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy series by Douglas Adams. Marvin is the ship’s robot aboard the starship Heart of Gold.

He was built as a prototype of Sirius Cybernetics Corporation’s GPP (Genuine People Personalities) technology.

Marvin is apparently afflicted with severe depression and boredom, in part because he has a “brain the size of a planet” which he is seldom able to use. Indeed, the true horror of Marvin’s existence is that no task he could be given would occupy even the tiniest fraction of his vast intellect.

Marvin claims he is 50,000 times more intelligent than a human, (or 30 billion times more intelligent than a live mattress) though this is, if anything, a vast underestimation.

When kidnapped by the bellicose Krikkit robots and tied to the interfaces of their intelligent war computer, Marvin simultaneously manages to plan the entire planet’s military strategy, solve “all of the major mathematical, physical, chemical, biological, sociological, philosophical, etymological, meteorological and psychological problems of the Universe except his own, three times over,” …

# Accounting

.

People who work in accounting departments often work 12 hour days creating reports that nobody cares about. This gives them a very bad attitude. Do not attempt humor around them.

# Three Laws of Robotics

.

1. A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.

2. A robot must obey orders given to it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.

3. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.

# In Search of Lost Time

.

《追憶逝水年華》一書即透過他特殊的敘事風格，營造出一個獨特的個人世界。他的敘述時時中斷，小說中夾雜了大量的議論、聯想、心理分析，一個失眠的夜可以花40頁來描述，一個三小時的聚會可以用掉190頁的篇幅。時間可以做無限的鋪陳，自然也可以隨意壓縮；過去、現在、未來可以在意識流中顛倒、交疊、相互滲透。

Workaround

A workaround is a bypass of a recognized problem in a system. A workaround is typically a temporary fix that implies that a genuine solution to the problem is needed. Frequently workarounds are as creative as true solutions, involving outside the box thinking in their creation.

# United Republics of China

In 2004, Lin Chong-pin (林中斌), former deputy Minister of Defense ROC, said that one of thinking tanks in Beijing gave a proposal for United Republics of China (中華聯合共和國). None of this proposal was known. But in the same years the officials and thinking tanks of PRC often are interesting of the history of mainland Tanganyika and archipelago Zanzibar to form the United Republic of Tanzania. As Zanzibar has its own president, government, parliament, autonomy, etc. and the president of Zanzibar is the vice-president of Tanzania, it seems to be the example of Deng Xiaoping “One country, two systems” in Africa.
