Interesting Tidbits

Thought for the day: If you pay peanuts, you get monkeys.

I hear all sorts of interesting tidbits, especially if I’m sitting in a restaurant/cafeteria, in the wee hours of morning, :
One day, there were these two guys talking:
Guy 1: You know, my baby girl- woh abhi se palti khaane lagi hai.(My baby girl can turn over already).
Guy 2: Really? How old is she?
Guy 1: 1.5 months
Guy 2: Really?
Guy 1: Well, not full palti, but, Aise…..and, he bent over to show how the baby girl turns and nearly fell off the chair.
(I couldn’t help grinning)
Another day:
Guy 1: Sometimes I wonder what are we doing here?
Guy 2: Why?
Guy 1: All our knowledge, our education, our experience- we shouldn’t be here.
Guy 2: Then where should you be?
Guy 1: I don’t know.
Another day:
Guy 1: These Indian cricketers
Guy 2: Yes, this team is full of buddhas.(Oldies)
Guy 1: Until they kick out the oldies from the selection team, no good can happen.
Guy 3: But, then, who will be at the BCCI?
Guy 1: There are so many people like me.
Guy 3: Really?
Guy 1: Yes… see, they started the ICL(Indian Cricketing League) and, already Kapil Dev is sacked.
Guy 2: They should take opinions from us people before taking such decisions.
Guy 2: Believe me, Indian cricket is doomed in it’s present stage.
(And, they continued- just like so many other people, they’re all experts at giving their opinions)
That reminds me, seeing our second ODI loss in England, I wonder whether they need to have a special screening of Chak De India, for the Indian Cricket Team?
The debate in the local paper continues. But, I think my comment is the last one.
On to some nice news tidbits:

From TOI:

- A troop of monkeys has reportedly taken to harassing and mocking women in a village in Kenya. The monkeys are only afraid of young men and throw stones at the women. The village women have even tried wearing their husbands’ clothes to trick the monkeys into thinking they are men — but without success….
(My comment: Is this a case of punarjanam(Rebirth) and the monkeys were harassed husbands in their previous life?)

From TOI again:

-Maths proves Alba has se*iest wiggle
London: Hollywood actress Jessica Alba has the se*iest wiggle—according to a team of Cambridge mathematicians. The academics say found that it is the ratio between hips and waist that puts the sway into a woman’s walk—and the nearer that ratio is to 0.7, the better. This ratio provides the body with the right torso strength to produce a more angular swing and bounce to the hips during the walking motion. Therefore, a woman with a 25-inch waist and 36-inch hips would have just the right proportions to carry off a se*y swagger as she walks, like Alba’s. (My query: Is it hips to waist(As it says in the article, in which case a 0.7 ratio would mean hahaha) , or waist to hips? And, why oh, why did such research not come our way when we were studying?)

Err, did anyone reading this rush to get her measuring tape, after reading this? If so, results welcomed, please.
End joke:

Is it a coincidence, or, did someone seriously decide these unusual website names:

1. Who Represents is where you can find the name of the agent that represents any celebrity. Their Web site is whorepresents.com

2. Experts Exchange is a knowledge base where programmers can exchange advice and views at expertsexchange.com

3. Looking for a pen? Look no further than Pen Island at penisland.net

4. Need a therapist? Try Therapist Finder at therapistfinder.com

5. There's the Italian Power Generator company, powergenitalia.com

6. If you're looking for IP computer software, there's always ipanywhere.com
7. The First Cumming Methodist Church Web site is cummingfirst.com

8. And the designers at Speed of Art await you at their wacky Web site, speedofart.com

(I checked out the first three, and they are real)

Till next time, keep smiling.

Arunima said...

whoa! A group of scientists has said that drinking alcohol is good. Another group has said that it is not good. Like the mathematicians you mentioned, they also had nothing better to do.

I am not sure... I have played for my hostel team before... it does not work. First ball and your mind forgets everything, you get indulged in to the game. You get hit for sixes of good balls, you cant do anything about it. It is batsman day that day.

When you come back, you start getting all the ideas that I should have done this and done that, but it is very difficult to think about those things in the middle of match.

AmitL said...

Hi,Goli..you have a point there,but, seeing the bickering in the BCCI,as also,the regional bias manytimes in the cricket team,I wonder..especially when it's at international level.Why would it affect only us Indians?
