Read somewhere!
Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Beer in one hand - a samosa in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming - WOO HOO! What a Ride!

Not able to help 'cut-copy-past'ing

Some 'more' hilarious ones:
-The parts of speech are lungs and air
-The inhabitants of Moscow are called Mosquitoes
-A census taker is a man who goes from house to house increasing the population
-Most of the houses in France are made of plaster of Paris
-The spinal column is a long bunch of bones. The head sits on thetop and you sit on the bottom
-The sun never set on the British Empire because the BritishEmpire's in the East and the sun sets in the West
-Gravity was invented by Issac Walton. It is chiefly noticeable inthe autumn when the apples are falling off the trees
-Actually, Homer was not written by Homer but by another man of that name
-Bach was the most famous composer in the world and so was Handel.Handel was half --German , half Italian and half English. He was verylarge
-The Greeks also had myths. A myth is a female moth
-Queen Victoria was the longest queen. She sat on a thorn for 63 years

Thinking again!

I just realised that when u have nothing to blog, or when u r bored but still want to keep blogging abt something interesting, u tend to cut-copy-paste. Not that its wrong, but if it does not relieve you of ur boredom....wats the point then?!
I also realised that i had been under the assumption that watever i blogged in 'Just for laughs' is really a good read or a nice laugh! Within minutes i feel like kicking myself! RUT!

Just for laughs

Nice one-liners ..often gets re-forwarded ..but a nice laugh:
  • When everything comes in your way you're in the wrong lane
  • Life is unsure; always eat your dessert first
  • If you keep your feet firmly on the ground, you'll have trouble putting on your pants
  • It's not hard to meet expenses, they are everywhere
  • The guy who invented the first wheel was an idiot. The guy who invented the other three, he was the genius.
  • The trouble with being punctual is that no one is there to appreciate it
  • If you tell a man there are 300 billion stars in the universe, he'll believe you. But if you tell him a park bench has just been painted, he has to touch it to be sure
  • If you cannot change your mind, are you sure you have one?
  • Hot glass looks same as cold glass. - Cunino's Law of Burnt Fingers
  • Never underestimate the power of very stupid people in large groups
  • The cigarette does the smoking you are just the sucker
  • I say no to drugs they just don't listen

Traffic Theory

The traffic in Chennai is horrible. Totally crazy. You wud reach ur office in an hr one day and in 15 mins the other. I have been critical abt the traffic sense of ppl and never gave it more thought.Looks like my dad also frets abt it.....and a friend of his, from Mumbai, came up with this theory.
' In Mumbai say the time taken for a journey is 1 hr; even if one day we reach the place in 20 mins, we dont reduce the average time fixed, proportionately. So we prepare to leave an hr early on all days. Wheras you in Chennai would re-calculate the averages and start the next day with just abt 40 mins to spare. If something goes wrong, say just for abt 5 mins, you feel the entire system is crashing and panic leads to more delay'
This is not THE reason...but definitely makes sense.

Bollywood on National Geographic

Whats Shah Rukh Khan doing on the cover of National Geographic?
I find it kinda amusing to see an NG write-up about Bollywood. Either it dint have much to write about or Bollywood is actually receiving a positive nod. Good for Indian economy anyways.....
