Welcome 2006!
Hello everybody, here's wishing you all a very happy new year in advance. This new year's eve we all get one more second to blow our trumpets.

The best way to prevent hangovers is to NOT drink. If you still HAVE to, you may want to stay sober longer and enjoy the late hours.

All right, all right! I have a few resolutions for this new year too:

• First, I want to take writing seriously.

• Then, I want to replace some of the compliments that I get. Like, for instance, I want to change "You are in perfect shape, and round's a shape!" to "Hell, you were sick or something?" In short, do something about the bulge.

• Do more Art, yes, and help it talk more business.

Google(or if a better search engine comes up by then) for somebody who'll wake me up in the mornings(no, it's not an alarm clock!) and put me to sleep at nights(not lullaby-machines or sleepills) and help me cook scrumptious delicacies. Maybe, I will wait till Google comes up with a http://google.com/matchmaker.


Okay, it's resolution time and the (time + 1 second) to rock! Tell us about what's in store for 2k6!
 

Tea-totaller

Hmm... It's Tea Time Folks!

Yes, that's what I am! Ah well, If you aren't already indulging in tea, you should. Some of us like tea, and many of us are tea-addicts, so most of us will be glad to know that tea is good (in fact, very very good!).

I remember gulping in litres of tea during my college projects, and at all odd hours, and maybe that's what kept me going!

Well well, for those who want to sip more, here goes:

Tests at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne, UK, suggest that tea, and particularly green tea, may improve your memory and slow the onset of Alzheimer's.

A previous study in Chicago of people prone to tension headaches found that caffeine alone gave as much pain relief as ibuprofen. And a team in Illinois have found that polyphenols in black tea stop plaque forming on your teeth, and reduce the level of cavity-forming acids. Green Tea combats cancer, protects your heart and also helps stop strokes.


"Chai" means to take apart or demolish in Chinese. When painted with a circle on old buildings and houses around Beijing, this character indicates areas marked for renovation and urban improvement. To some, the ubiquitous "chai" means progress.

Also, in Hebrew, Chai means Life!

The superstition of the Ego
"We are poisoned by the superstition of the ego. We cannot know what will be right or wrong in a selfless society, nor what we'll feel, nor in what manner. We must destroy the ego first. That is why the mind is so unreliable. We must not think. We must believe."

Part 2, Chapter 13, pg. 365, The Fountainhead — Ayn Rand

Social Rape

The Society is raping our minds
She was raped. And then brutally killed. What if she was NOT killed?

We had a volatile discussion yesterday. Some said it was in a way good that she is no more. Some felt there's more to human life than what society thinks of it.

If you were her husband, how would you react?

And what if you were the victim — raped and NOT killed?

Do you care for wagging tongues or your loved ones?
 

Ancient G-String

Is it a G-String or well... Any other ideas?
The India fashion week fever hasn't yet subsided, and neither have hormonally-charged-kiddos forgotten the Kaanta Lagaa Video(where the G-String was first shown to our nation—a cultural hypocrite).

Well, Let's go back a little. Erm... Not little. Well, let's go back a Lot! Say, 3rd Century AD.

Divers exploring a river near a former Roman Empire fort and settlement in Britain have found a piece of pottery that depicts the backside of a rather buff gladiator wielding a whip and wearing nothing but a G-string, according to British researchers.

The image represents the first known depiction of a gladiator in such revealing attire. It adds to the evidence that ancient Romans viewed gladiators not only as fearless warriors, but also as sex symbols.

Hmm... History was taking a nap maybe, before it could repeat itself.

Bengaluru!
Whattu issu thissu?
Suchu a guddu nameuu screwedu upuu!
Nothing will ever again get bangalored. It will have to be bangalurud.

Why are we sounding like a bhishon-bhaalo bengali metro?
We are back, not with a bang anymore, but with a beng!
What will Bangaloreans be called henceforth?
Bengaluruvasis? Bengalurueans? Bengalis?

Whattu the heckuu, thissu is sheeru dumbnessu!
I didn't like the change. Did you?
 

Patience: A dripping tale

What patience
We always joke about heights. Like Adoption being the heights of laziness, any many more that cannot make it to this post rated 'Parental Guidance'!

Well, well, we do have a real life example of patience personified!

John Mainstone, a professor at the University of Queensland, won the 2005 Ig Nobel prize in physics for an experiment in which a blob of congealed black tar has been dripping through a funnel at a rate of about one drop every nine years!

Professor Maidstone said he was elated to win the prize for the slow drip, which he shared with his late colleague, Thomas Parnell, who started the experiment in 1927 and, sadly, died after the second drop. "Obviously, I've seen a lot more now that we are into the ninth drop," said Professor Maidstone.

MadeStone, eh?
