Join the joke blog ...

"Dear Dogbert,
Lots of people write blogs, but I've never heard of anyone who actually reads them. What's up with that?

Dear Skirt,
Blogs exist to fill the important market niche of writing that is so dull that your eyes will burrow out of the back of your head to escape. People do read blogs, usually by accident, sometimes on a dare, but those readers are later mistaken for Mafia victims with what appears to be two holes in the back of their heads. On closer inspection, you might find their eyeballs clinging to the drapes directly behind them. Unless the cat gets them first.

"Bulla Ki Jana is all about us not knowing who we are, of thinking of life in terms of boxes, until we are enlightened. And then, you realise how meaninglessly you’ve compartmentalised life"

“Unsuspecting vs I” - written in 2002 AD

This is a part of the conversation that ensued between a friend and I during a robotics competition held at my engg. College. It’s left to you to decide who’s the ****…

Me: Man those robots were amazing ! But I still think there are more innovative ways to play robot golf

Unsuspecting (henceforth U.S.): Those robots were cute… I’m glad that in the end, the simplest design won.

Me: But, that’s like, not putting any of your hard-earned knowledge to any use.

U.S.: Hmm…

Me: I was thinking more in terms of … [now, suddenly jumping into a dramatic sequence] … say, using the natural capacitance of a golf ball, supplying it with some initial charge – then, with the help of perfectly synched electric and magnetic fields, accelerating it to critical velocity and leaving it at the precise angle at which the tangent is in line with the hole. [Ending with a swift juggle which could even put the Nat. Geo. Croc guy to shame] ….So, what do you think ?

U.S. : Huh ?

Me: OR! OR! [in another fit of excitement] Maybe we could implement our knowledge of the dual nature of light ie. particle and wave. We could then propel the ball using focused beams of low wavelength electromagnetic radiation and thus, progressively transfer momentum to the ball so as to guide it into the goal cavity. So, what do you think. Rings a bell ?

U.S.: A bell ? It could ring a toy gun siren any moment now …

Me: [Returning from the space-time warp] I’m not too sure we’ll get faculty support for all this.

U.S.: Hey, we could still look for sponsorships…

Me: That’s not my department.

U.S.: Well, then let’s just hurl the balls down a bent pipe like the winning team…

Me: Yeah, I guess that’ll do…
U.S.: [Giggle! Giggle!] Attaboy!

Next time: Unsuspecting strikes back – Towards more obfuscated speech.

[PS: It's fiction.. :-) ]

The Right Place

"Why do you tear apart your fine clothes,
and wear only a rough blanket?
even at home you can meet the Lord,
if your mind is in the right place."

Real Meaning of Life Project

Real Meaning of Life Project: "Take a look at what people think is the meaning of life: this guy's got entries from all over the world!
It's pretty amazing to see how some people relate things like religion, social status, and other ideas that are essentially external to what some people consider essentially internal ideas: feeling, accomplishment, love...

What kind of person are you ?

Personally I think the meaning of life is life itself...
don't ask me to explain"

Long time no C

The blogging bug seems to have really caught up with people!

I've migrated to Blogspot from my very own 'Shades of Grey' on the tripod webpage... (which has been replaced by a more general website)

The template finally used is called 'Dark Dots' ... running close in competition was 'Snapshot'

Nuff for today.... migrating is BIG work....
