The word consistency is derived from the root word "consistent". From WordNet online dictionary website, the word CONSISTENT can be define in several context:


(adj)((sometimes followed by `with') in agreement or consistent or reliable) "testimony consistent with the known facts"; "I have decided that the course of conduct which I am following is consistent with my sense of responsibility as president in time of war"- FDR

(adj) uniform (the same throughout in structure or composition) "bituminous coal is often treated as a consistent and homogeneous product"

There are several examples or instances where this word can be negatively expressed although the word itself is not there:

  1. The ID card checks at the academic building area are done during the early week of lectures only.
  2. Car boot checks are done whenever they like it, causing delays and long queue when exiting the perimeter.
  3. Smoking openly (eg. at the cafes) is prohibited in the perimeter but it seems applied to the locals only.
So much with the consistency! :)
