The effects of argument

Old Man: You boy! Why do you we have two ears and two eyes and only one mouth?

Me: Er... two ears because we need to gauge the direction of sound, two eyes to calculate distances accurately and only one mouth because we are mono, not sorround sound?

Old Man: Cynic!

The Adventurous Indian Woman

Forget Vikings, snowboarders, para-sailors, skydivers, whitewater-rafters and their ilk...a new adventure sports(wo)man is born! Behold- The Adventuress.

Truly all of these sports pale in comparison to the ultimate adventure...the Indian Woman venturing out of the sheltered confines of her home. All extreme sports have this feature in common risk, thrills and danger. However this particular adventure that one is referring to is far above the aforementioned ones, for not only is there the risk of physical disfigurement, there is the added spice of sexual violation and yes, the enthralling, the extreme, the thrilling danger of character assassination post casualties incurred after engaging in this attempt.

However this sport has one failing, only women are allowed to compete, while men are confined to being the environmental variables, the added 'risks' if they may.

Here are the requirements qualifying you to compete-

Indian Idle

Indian Idol. Auditions across the country. Only the best make it to the televised regulars. High profile judges, peppy host, higher profile guest stars, the works. The show then takes the (by now jaded and predictable) 'Reality Route' that contrary to its name bears little resemblance to reality.

In the resulting hullabaloo, the question that is foremost in my mind is... WHY?

Why does the Indian 'Idol' have to be a singer anyway?

Why do they have to sing the same songs that have been 'classics' for the past 69 years instead of allowing fresh talents to showcase their musical abilities?

Why do the judges have to be so diplomatic in their criticisms?

Why does the final decision have to be made by the voting of the masses who know NOTHING about how the candidate sings and EVERYTHING about how he's poor/ has an aged mother/ bursts into tears etc..?

Why do they have judges anyway if the final decision is made by public vote?

Why is the host so irritating?

Reasons not to buy a samsung corby

1.) Absolutely shitty battery life: my samsung corby (txt) barely lasted a day on a single charge, considering that all I used it for was to talk or text and considering that the higher corby's are touch screen and need more battery powe, its absolutely useless.

2.) No multitasking: while a text is in the process of being sent, nothing else can be done, so if you're forwarding to multiple people, be ready to have your phone rendered unusable for the duration of the sending. Also the sending fails if you get an incoming call

3.) Poor software design: to assign ringtones, one has to move them into the extremely limited phone memory which is unlike that of Nokia and Ericsson phones wherein a pointer just points out the location on the memory card.

4.) Slow processing power

5.)No bass sound in speaker... at all!!!
