Another "World First" By Singapore. Heheh.

I've previously commented about how Singapore has a habit of claiming to be world-class and world-best in this and that and this and that ... when it really isn't.

According to Channel News Asia, Singapore recently accomplished another "world first" in the area of engineering research. The blogger known as Gecko promptly exposes this to be untrue.

Channel News Asia should eat their shorts.

To be fair, NTU did not claim that what it did was a world first.

It was CNA that did so.

CNA has since dropped the claim that it was a world first.
