Opposites Attract

That is how magnets, and atom charges behave. And guess what, judging from the result, that were also how Malaysians behaved in the recent general election.

I've always wonder, why the word "Pembangkang" (translation: 'Opposition'). If, one day, other political parties were elected to form new government, would the outgoing parties be call 'Opposition'? Seeing the result from recent general election, the possibility is there.

Another thing that I've always wonder it that why world maps have north at the top and south at the bottom. Someone would say, compass always points north. But isn't the opposite (compass always points south) is also true? Just so you know, not so long ago, world map have south at the top.

So who decided?
