Blistering barnacles, thundering typhoons and half assed behaviour

There is only one road block in life -HALF-ASSED BEHAVIOUR. That's it.
Let me tell you two stories: 
Story #1 
A scorpion comes to the edge of a river and is unable to cross it. It finds a frog swimming in the pond, and asks the frog to drop him on the other side of the river.
The frog, with clarity, tells the scorpion, "Hey, you'll sting me and I'll die. I won't take you on my back"
The scorpion replies," Hey, if I sting you put there in the middle of the river, while you are crossing, both of us get to drown and die. I swear I won't do it."

The scorpion replies, "Iam a scorpion. I sting". Understand the story under your own intellig…

The process and cycle of Change in the world and how to change for good!

I was thinking about how buildings were imploded. It's a process in which buildings are brought to the ground with explosives. They charge the building with ammo after identifying all the correct spots and on one fine day they blow the trigger. The entire building comes down. Just like that.
A second ago there was a building, and a second later there it is no more.
It occurred to me that change never happens gradually, it only happens instantaneously, contrary to popular belief.
You might argue that they have been charging and inspecting the building for an entire week before it was blown, and that should be counted too. But I'll argue back with the possibility that that was only the process of change and not change itself. After a week, if they didn’t blow the trigger, the building would still be there, intact.
Consider the orbitals in an atom. The electron jumps from one orbital state to another. But how does the electron jump from one orbital to another? Spare me the sci…
