Ever wonder about those people


Ever wonder about those people who say they are giving more than 100%?
We have all been to those meetings where someone wants over 100%. How
about achieving 103%? Here’s a little mathematics that might prove
helpful.
What makes life 100%?
If A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z is represented
as:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26.
Then, H A R D W O R K 8 1 18 4 23 15 18 11 = 98%
K N O W L E D G E 11 14 15 23 12 5 4 7 5 = 96%
But, A T T I T U D E 1 20 20 9 20 21 4 5 = 100%
And, B U L L S H I T 2 21 12 12 19 8 9 20 = 103%
So, it stands to reason that hardwork and knowledge will get you
close,
attitude will get you there, but bullshit will put you over the top.
And look how far A R S E K I S S I N G 1 18 19 5 11 9 19 19 9 14 7 =
122%
or even simple B R O W N N O S I N G 1 18 15 23 14 14 15 19 9 14 7 =
149% will take you!

‘Cause it’s a bittersweet symphony, this life


Try to make ends meet
You’re a slave to money then you die
I’ll take you down the only road I’ve ever been down
You know the one that takes you
to the places where all the things meet yeah
No change,
I can’t change I can’t change, I can’t change
But I’m here in my mould, I am here in my mould
But I’m a million different people from one day to the next
I can’t change my mould
No, no, no, no, no
Well I never pray
But tonight I’m on my knees yeah
I need to hear some sounds
that recognize the pain in me, yeah
I let the melody shine, let it cleanse my mind,
I feel free now
But the airways are clean
and there’s nobody singing to me now
Bittersweet Symphony, The Verve

Happy Birthday Mo and Ammar


Happy Birthday!
It’s Mohammed’s birthday today and Ammar’s on the 30th. As a birthday tribute to them both I will present you with interesting schtuff to do with the month of April.
Diamond is the birthstone of April. Here’s a photomicrograph of diamond and other birthstones. (Also check out the Silicon Zoo.)
Renée Zellweger, William Shakespeare, Al Pacino, Ella Fitzgerald and Kirsten Dunst all have birthdays in April.
There are quite of few holidays and observances in April, the most famous being April Fools’ Day. If you’re stuck for ideas next year, here are a few pranks you can play.
Song Recommendation of the Day:
Title: April in Paris
Artist: Ella Fitzgerald featuring Louis Armstrong
The mood created: Umm…..it’s a song with April in the title
……I’ve run out of things about April…..HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Head & Shoulders hurts like hell!


Alright.. so I run out of my regular shampoo and I find this bottle of Head & Shoulders, the dandruff shampoo in the closet and I go “hmmm ok.. even though I don’t have dandruff.. what the hell..”
So i’m massaging away.. singing and what not.. and the damn thing seeps into my eye! Now I’ve done this before… and NEVER has it hurt this bad. I seriously thought I was going to go blind in my right eye.. but it subsided after a couple of minutes.. and me flushing it repeatedly… So yeah.. watch out kids!
Song Recommendation of the Day:
Title: Where All Life Begins
Artist: Madonna
The mood created: let’s dine out… ;)
Thank you uncle Rafi!
I had to ride the subway last Saturday to get to the pro-Palestinian protests last Saturday, and since I imagined there would be lots of walking to be done, I chugged down around a gallon of water before-hand. Not a good idea. The 40 minute ride downtown was unbearable. The only thing that kept me from “exploding” was the song “Aaj Mausam bara Bay-iman Hai” by Mohammad Rafi that I kept singing over and over almost throughout the train ride.. I’m actually listening to it again right now.. and it talks of a coming storm.. and bad weather..hmm.. reverse psychology DOES work!

Cool Cousin


My cousin sent me three links today and all three are blogworthy.
Elmo testifies in favour of school music education. Elmo in a suit?!? How cute is that?
Oh bugger, I missed the Channel 4 programme, “The Truth about Gay Animals”. But here you can find out if your pet is gay and also how gay you are yourself. I am 33% gay: “You’re a straight-laced girlie girl with just a hint of your butch side sometimes poppingup”. I’m sure this test is 89.5% accurate too.
If you’re interested in Forensic Science and/or love the programme CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, check out their site. The Handbook and Crime Lab sections are particularly informative
