According to a Gallup survey, Singaporeans are “the least likely in the world to report experiencing emotions of any kind on a daily basis. The 36% who report feeling either positive or negative emotions is the lowest in the world. Filipinos, on the other hand, are the most emotional, with six in 10 saying they experience a lot of these feelings daily.”
Survey says…Filipinos are the most emotional people on earth. We’re inclined to agree, but those are their metrics? Who’s their control group, Vulcans?
Are there so many telenovelas because Filipinos are melodramatic, or are Filipinos melodramatic because there are so many telenovelas? The substitute national anthem could be “Feelings” (woe woe woe feeeelings) as sung by a former first lady.

For alerts, tipoffs and invitations, email email@example.com. Yes, we accept invitations for talks and workshops, but only on subjects we actually know something about. We can’t discuss trends in social media because we’re not in the social media—this blog’s facebook page is maintained by our brilliant publicist friend. We can’t discuss lambing; do check out stuff we’ve written to see what we’re qualified to talk about, i.e. reading, writing, movies especially terrible ones, cats, loafing, and nerdiness. There is a fee, which varies; if you’re a school we’ll waive it, if you charge participants admission we charge too, and if you’re a corporation, pay up.
