The mystery is finally over! The rumours are true. In what could be the greatest discovery by mankind thus far, an independent group of 12 scientists searching for the possibility of extraterrestrial life have managed to catch the till now hypothetical UFO spacecraft, along with two dead alien beings.
In this historical day led by the American scientist Albert Michelson and German scientist Tycho Brahe the team managed to trap the UFO by creating a radioactive spot in Vancouver Island of Canada. "We are extremely excited about all this", says Brahe. After all the studies within the past five years we have managed to prove the existence of the extraterrestrial life. "And the amazing part is", continues Michelson, "they might not be as strong or powerful as we initially expected. They are different than us no doubt, but definately not more powerful."
The international media has not yet been called upon as they are still busy assembling some of the pieces dropped from the UFO first. But some photographs were released earlier.
It turned out to be quite easy in the end. Once we found out that each of their spaceship worked on a different mathematical algorithm for traveling, it was all about breaking those secret codes to pull them wherever we wanted.
"It would have been more interesting if we got them alive", says Steve James one of the team members among the 12 scientists. "The first impression we get is that they are more closer to human race than some robot like creatures".
The press is expected to be invited within next 24 hours.
While ultrasound can be an effective technology in examining internal body parts, and even to find the condition of an unborn child; this has been used for abortion test in many developing countries where the gender bias is still on.
While abortion is legal in most part of the world, its really sad to know how the technology is being misused to carry out unhuman activity. Hundred of thousands of abortions of abortions are carried out each year depending upon ultrasound results of whether the unborn child is a girl or a boy. How pathetic!
I also came across this story of a weird looking child who died immediately after his birth. I'm not sure about the scientific reasons behind such child birth, but the child somehow looks more like a frog than a human.
Long time no blog!
There's this little joke that's quite popular among the kids here. it goes something like this-
There are three kids in the stage. one starts to beat the other. the third one then asks "why are you hitting him?". To this the first kid replies- "three months ago, he said that i am a pig". The third boy asks again "if he said that three months ago, why are you hitting him now?". The first boy then says - "i knew what a pig means only this morning!"
Actually this joke has nothing to do with the ongoing cartoon row. Its just that when you're looking at things from a safer side, even the biggest problems seem so simple, whereas its not as simple on the spot. Coz if they were there would be no problems at all!
This also reminds me of an the terrible incident here couple years back when twelve hostages from here were killed by the Iraqi militants, who got there through a manpower company here. It obviously was a shocking event, but what followed was even more shocking. The next day, within few hours the whole manpower companies here were attacked, the Muslims here were attacked and even the media houses were attacked and the city looked like a warzone for several hours. Then it was quiet.
Also reminds me of the the recent Paris riot incidents which went on for several days after the death of an ethnic minority person. That again went on and on like there was it would never stop.
In all these cases, or other similar cases, more often than not there is not a single motto for what's happening around. Mostly there are the 'dissatisfied groups' and then there are the few catalyst factors that are no good for anyone. What happened here or what happened in Paris or what's happening around the world now wouldn't have been so serious if there weren't such people who had nothing more to do than the 'East Vs West' kind of attitude. For most of us, no Islam is bad, no Christian is bad, no Hindu, no Buddhist, no nothing is bad, its all the attitude of some of the people, fuckin attitude that's taking the world apart..to a dark future.
Well enough of the rubbish thoughts! May be some more cartoon this time...the less controversial ones!
Its strange how love can have good effects on a person. It energizes you & gives a new meaning to your life. Love is not a new thing that you've just discovered, yet you can't feel less excited about it. And that's good too! Too bad its just meant for one day on the calendar. Love needs no boundaries. They say some 1 billion valentine cards are sold annually, along with 100 million roses! Cool! Seems like love is in the air at the moment.
Let love spread all around. Forever.
I have been resting for most of the time past several days after i caught up with an unending series of irritating little illness. I think it started after staying out during a party. But then i end up getting cold, fever, coughs, weakness, headaches, stomach aches, and aches in all parts of body. Damn... Headaches' the worst - it just sucks the thinking power out of you. And when u add fever on top of that, well that's the worst nightmare alrite. You're stuck in the bed sleepless, thoughtless, uncomfortable trying to feed yourself on some bitter tablets and tasteless soups.
Finally it seems like things are sorting out somewhat although i still feel kinda dizzy. I hope things get normal soon.
I must have missed a lot in the blogging zones. Anyway coming back to this blog we have nonsensicalflounderings this week 'IN THE HOUSE'. Do check it out. And not only that we have other guests hauntedhousedressing, mystickalincense, mejc, bnbexperiences, dreamfight3r, redindependence as well since they were also trying to enter 'IN THE HOUSE' from blogexplosion. So do check them out too! What else? I really must have missed a lot around i guess.
I was watching an old movie(2004) called Hotel Rwanda today. It is based on a true story about a person who saves the few hundred people he could shelter in his hotel at the time when almost a million people were killed within three months in Rwanda in the 90's due to a civil war. It was a shocking movie to say the least. In one of the scenes where the hero thinks that he's driving through a bumpy road in a hazy dawn, he actually happens to be driving through a road with dead bodies thrown all over like some dirt. It was spine chilling movie.
Outside, the sky was clear. For how long i don't know. Somewhere else i know people are fighting, in wars. For what? Sometimes I'm not so sure. Right now i remember one of my favorite tunes by the band scorpions - under the same sun.
...Sometimes I think I'm going mad
We're loosing all we had and no one seems to care
But in my heart it doesn't change
We've got to rearrange and bring our world some love
And does it really matter
If there's a heaven up above
We sure could use some love
'cause we all live under the same sun
We all walk under the same moon
Then why, why can't we live as one
'cause we all live under the same sky
We all look up at the same stars
Then why, tell me why can't we live as one....
Paypal is a popular online money transaction site. but i was surprised to see an email from the site to my spam box in firstname.lastname@example.org since i haven't used this mail address for paypal. also it was in the spam box, so it made me suspicious. the email was directly to my mailing address. it went something like this.

For a first thought i thought it was not a spam since it looked like a genuine email source. but since i had no activity from my email address, i was not so sure. later i found that it was actually a fraud spam mail. man, these spam mails can be so tricky at times. the ones with the headings like "get millionaire in a day" are so easy to know to be spam but the ones like these can certainly get you. even with a high filtering sometimes these just pop in your inbox sometimes.
do u get spam mails like these too?
3 random things to do when bored liked hell:
Ya ya the researchers say so. cell phones are now brain cancer safe. The earlier issues that say that radiation from cell phones cause brain tumor are false. U can now pick up your phone and stick it to your head 24/7. Well that's a good news alrite.
I also heard of another weird news that the US government wants Google data of searched web! Wow! you mean someone 'googles' for something, he/she will be continuously monitored. who need hackers and crackers if you can legally monitor what people are doing on the web?
Not much to choose between dog and god if all you're looking for is a word. Well not the case if you look at the meanings.
The worst part of your life & your day is when you've done all the hard work and some other idiot gets all the credits for your work. And there goes the moment when I can feel myself like a dog...well even worse I guess.
And the happy ending to all that is when at the end of the day you spread your feet, forget and forgive everything else, & watch the orange sun set in the west, with the strongest cup of coffee in your hands. Your heart is bloomed, you can smile just like that and doesn't matter whether or not you believe in god...you feel like god.
There goes my day....again.
Oh almost forgot. We have hauntedhousedressing as the new guest 'IN THE HOUSE'. I guess I should have informed earlier, but then better late than never...So do check it out.
Been busy to blog lately. In the meantime we had a fun party for our granny's birthday. The family structure here may be different from some of the other parts of the world; with parents & children living under same roof, but the idea of fun & happiness, i believe, is same everywhere.
Now during the party, I noticed one of my uncle, previously very quiet person, getting all jolly and a fun loving character. I think it is his age that is changing him. I'm happy with my present age (mid 20's..), but if i had a chance to be of different age, then i would like to be a 60+ old man. I feel a person has by then seen all the highs and lows of life. And if he/she gets support from family or friends. he/she can be happier and rightfully deserves to be happier.
So often we feel that child days are the happy days, but i think that the elderly days should also be more fun. Well anyway i have a long way to go to my 60's.
Also a 'skipped generation' lifestyle is also developing in some parts of the world. So i guess children will have a different attitude towards the elderly in such situations.
so she lost. Competition is a strange thing. competitive nature is one thing, being competitive is another. Martina Hingis sure must have been a champ during her time and a great competitor forever, but that's not all that you want in the competition. you play to win, not just to compete. but the good thing is, its good to see her back. may be Anna would join too.
also, coming back to the blog, this week we have mystickalincense 'IN THE HOUSE'. do check it out!
I'm not a fan or forwarded mails or politics. but looks like both of these combined can have nice humour sometimes. well at least this time.
* Hu Jintao is the new chief of the Communist Party in China;
* Kofi Annan is Secretary-General of the United Nations;
* Condolessa Rice is the American National Security Advisor;
* George W. Bush is President of the United States.
We take you now to the Oval Office. George Bush is meeting with Condolessa Rice.
George: Condi! Nice to see you. What's happening?
Condi: Sir, I have the report here about the new leader of China.
George: Great. Lay it on me.
Condi: Hu is the new leader of China. That's what I'm telling you.
George: That's what I'm asking you. Who is the new leader of China?
George: I mean the fellow's name.
George: The guy in China.
George: The new leader of China.
George: The Chinaman!
Condi: Hu is leading China.
George: Now whaddya' asking me for?
Condi: I'm telling you Hu is leading China.
George: Well, I'm asking you. Who is leading China?
Condi: That's the man's name.
George: That's who's name?
George: Will you or will you not tell me the name of the new leader of China?
Condi: Yes, sir.
George: Yassir? Yassir Arafat is in China? I thought he was in the Middle East.
Condi: That's correct.
George: Then who is in China?
Condi: Yes, sir.
George: Yassir is in China?
Condi: No, sir.
George: Then who is?
Condi: Yes, sir.
Condi: No, sir.
George: Look, Condi. I need to know the name of the new leader of China. Get me the Secretary General of the U.N. on the phone.
George: No, thanks.
Condi: You want Kofi?
Condi: You don't want Kofi.
George: No. But now that you mention it, I could use a glass of milk. And then get me the U.N.
Condi: Yes, sir.
George: Not Yassir! The guy at the U.N.
George: Milk! Will you please make the call?
Condi: And call who?
George: Who is the guy at the U.N?
Condi: Hu is the guy in China.
George: Will you stay out of China?!
Condi: Yes, sir.
George: And stay out of the Middle East! Just get me the guy at the U.N.
George: All right! With cream and two sugars. Now get on the phone.
(Condi picks up the phone.)
Condi: Rice, here.
George: Rice? Good idea. And a couple of egg rolls, too. Maybe we should send some to the guy in China. And the Middle East. Can you get Chinese food in the Middle East?
Well what if the politicians were really like this!
On the other note though, today marks the birthdate of Louis Braille, the man behind the braille representation, which became the standard and revolution for the visually impaired. even google has its name brailed for this day. here's for the tribute to the man himself
well as we have all finally welcomed the new day of the new year, you might have noticed that we have all reached here a whole 1(ONE) second late than we expected. yes friends...1 second late. but now that we've safely arrived 1 second late, seems like some people are not happy about it. they want their precious second back!
the "second" thing is due to actually a complex process where human are more getting more cleverer than the actual "time". so in 1949 came this thing called atomic clock which happens to be very very accurate.
since the man-made time clock is more accurate than the time clock of universe, which apparently takes breaks from time to time, the 'intelligent scientists' are busy making adjustments to their clocks according to it.
i don't have problems with 'the second' this way or that. well a better adjustment i hope would be if it was the same time everywhere in the earth. so that i can say happy new year to everyone around the world right at the moment its new year here. not hours before or after the new year. if i get a call from my friend in America saying happy new year when I'm about to sleep here in Asia then its not so fun.
as for new year resolutions, well i made one to quit alcohol, and broke it on the very 1st day! how long can you hold onto your resolutions? one second?
