Guzre dinon ki yaad barasti ghataa lage
Guzroon jo us gali se to thandi havaa lage
Mehmaan ban ke aaye kisi roz agar vo shakhs
Us roz bin sajaaye mera ghar sajaa lage
Main iss liye manaataa nahin vasl ki khushi
Mere raqib ki na mujhe bad-duaa lage
Vo qahat dosti ka padaa hai ki in dinon
Jo muskuraa ke baat kare aashnaa lage
Tark-e-vafaa ke baad ye us ki adaa 'qateel'
Mujhko sataaye koi to us ko buraa lage
When I first read the headline, I thought – perhaps the teacher wanted every student to have their own Netbook (which wouldn’t be a bad idea). But the teacher’s argument against pencils is…… ”pencils can be used to build weapons”!!
The teacher (Wendy Scott) sent a memo to the parents of her sixth grade students stating that from Nov 15, any student bringing writing implements to school would face disciplinary action for having materials to build weapons! It also said that pencils would be provided for students in the class.
Just curious - how are Wendy Scott’s pencils different from the ones that the students are getting?
Fists and feet can be used as weapons too, so… err… what would Wendy suggest next? Chop off the hands and legs of the sixth grade students?
I bet Wendy would love to implement TSA’s ‘security measures’ before anyone enters her class.

I saw this today morning. The Post is titled 10 Tips for Writing Better Blog Posts.
Tip No:7 says Proofread. Which I totally agree with, but then there is a typo in the very next ‘tip’.
What’s even worse - There is a Tip No: 6 that says: “Don’t Ignore Your Readers”. Now, I had submitted a comment for this post on Blogger Sentral today morning, highlighting the typo and suggesting that the author refers to his Tip No: 7. The comment has not been published.
As you can see from the screenshot above, the typo hasn’t been corrected and it’s 11:49 PM.
If she does win the republican nomination to run for president, she should be referred to as the republiCUNT candidate. Dumb bitch.
Judging by the crap Palin keeps saying and tweeting time and again, I seriously believe that she just puts words together and prays that it makes some sense. More often than not – it’s meaningless.
Read this today morning on TOI. Simple enough concept that facilitates 24X7 fund transfers in real time. Register with the bank for a Mobile Money Transfer Identifier Number (MMID). Install the Mobile Banking app on the handset and that’s pretty much it. Of course, goes without saying that you need to have a mobile number and a Bank Account.
The article quotes “anofficial” (typo on the site) as saying “Nowhere in the world is a facility of this magnitude present”.
From all the places in the world one could think of - even a BETTER service is available in….. KENYA! It has been available since 2007. The users don’t need a Mobile Banking app or even a Bank Account. In March 2010, USD 351 million were transferred using this service.
I had read the news (about Kenya) the other day and was impressed that all the user had to do was send a TEXT message to transfer cash. What further impressed me was there was no need for a Bank Account!
Obviously the OFFICIAL can go ahead and claim he was referring to Bank Transfers specifically and NOT money transfers in general. Or he could go on and say that he MEANT it in terms of population.
Well - if you have a higher population, obviously there will be a higher number of users. There is very little to brag about on that front. Having a huge number of cellphone subscribers or bank accounts doesn’t really hold much weight when you are the second most populated country in the world!
Dikhaawon pe mat jaao…. Apni akal ladaao!
Here is another one.
Was just thinking, instead of having an hour glass (highlighted in the previous post) or having a marker thingy / loading bars (as pictured above), why not just make it numeric? It’s called – KEEPING IT SIMPLE
Something like – Keep a 2 position system. Top for Stop, Bottom for Go and instead of displaying just a solid colour, it displays a countdown timer.
Would be large enough to be readable. The different positions would make it usable for the colour blind as well and there would be no need for an extra display unit to show the timer.
Does look interesting. However, I would like to add that I have seen standard traffic lights with attached timers which serve the purpose just fine.
Looking at the concept and thinking about it, there are a few problems. Using the orange twice is going to be a bit confusing, but what’s really wrong with the concept is – they didn’t think about people who are colour blind!
Now before someone comes with wise ass remarks, please read - the present traffic light design works fine for the colour blind because of the positioning of the lights. Top is Stop, Bottom is Go, Middle is Prepare to Stop.
And just for the record, there are different types of colour blindness. The major ones are:
Wafaa Bilal, a NYU photography professor will have a camera implanted in the back of his head, which will keep snapping pics at one minute intervals – for a year. The report states that the camera would broadcast a live stream of the images to a museum in Qatar that has commissioned this nonsense.
Errr… ahem… Point being? I mean, seriously - What’s the point??! Just curious – does Wafaa plug in a USB cable into his ear to transfer the images from his head camera to his computer (in case the idiot wants to retain a copy)?
If a really good photograph is clicked, would it be fair to give credit to the professor for the pic? I mean, he wasn’t even LOOKING in that direction, why should he get credit for an accidentally clicked good photograph?
There are talks about having the camera covered or shut down while the professor is on the campus (privacy issues of the students). I agree, that IS an issue - but a bigger issue is this guy is totally messed in the head and such idiots should NOT be allowed to teach kids anyways.
People do extremely stupid things in the name of art.
Labels: Simply Pathetic
Horrible, predictable, pathetic, pointless, overdone, clichéd and NOT enjoyable. I found this extremely boring and the ‘plot’ was full of holes. The ‘twists’ were not only predictable but also COMPLETELY UNNECESSARY.
Perhaps I found it even more annoying because I ended up watching the Director's Cut.
Chiwetel Ejiofor is an annoying cunt and I can’t tolerate him.
The action sequences were fun to watch but somehow didn’t do enough to make up for the totally ridiculous story line.
The japs… AGAIN. This time it’s Japanese lingerie maker Triumph with a ‘Welcome To Japan’ Bra that greets tourists in 3 different languages (???) ahemm. It also comes with a removable skirt thingy that has Japan’s map on the reverse side with tourist places marked up on it.
Would love to know what is running through their heads when they come up with these concepts. The woman yapping that a new international airport was built and they are expecting tourists to come in – well I am sure that wasn’t what triggered off this concept.
Seems they have a typo on their webpage. BlackBerry Unlimited Plus - KD 2 per month???
Obviously that can’t be correct. I mean, the package that doesn’t offer any free data on roaming (BlackBerry Unlimited) costs 6.5 times MORE than a package that offers 10 MB of free data on roaming??!
Would be a KILLER offer if that were true. Doesn’t ANYONE proofread - before publishing, anymore???
Optional! Hmm, interesting. So… what they are saying is that the consumers have the option to:
Not a recall! Well you are adding stuff to the car to avoid undesirable consequences (err, death / 3rd degree burns / instantaneous combustion) and you are doing so for free. If this isn’t a recall, then what is it? Customer Service?? It’s not as if Tata is offering a complimentary LCD Monitor or a Boom Box.
"The company has taken up several corrective measures and will now offer cover tool on catalytic converter to prevent the car from catching fire. It will also install fuse in electrical components to avoid short circuits," he (Carl-Peter Forester, CEO & MD) had said
Doesn’t really seem like it’s OPTIONAL (well not an option anyone would knowingly opt out of anyways), and definitely DOES fit the description of a recall.
Now this is my kind of film.
Simply put – in my view, if you understand good films - you will definitely enjoy this one.
I couldn't find it on Yahoo Movies (wasn't there when I looked). Anyways, for those of you who might want to read a bit more about the film, here are two links:
I am all for technology and even more for privacy and all that but… 4 million GBP on THIS! Fucking waste. There has to be a better way to use that money!
Wonder how the women are going to react to this. I mean peeing on a stick was bad enough, now the women are just going to be ticked off when they have to pee on a CHIP? (you don’t suppose it’s just the men who can get STD, do you??)
BTW, would you want to continue using the same phone after you have had your piss swirling across it’s motherboard/chipset?
Wonder how they are going to advertise for this? Picture this - Guy and girl on a date in a fancy restaurant. Having a good time and so far everything has gone fine. Then the girl says:
I would like to take this to the next level…. Could you pee on my phone?
Screen fades to black. White text appears with the teleshopping voice over:
It’s that easy. Be Safe .. not sorry. Carry your smartphone with you. We suggest at least two handsets, for hygiene purposes.
Message issued in the interest of public awareness by the UK Clinical Research Collaboration.
Psst – yes yes, I do know the article says you can use saliva as well - but it just wouldn’t be as funny, now would it? Oh come on - Could you pee on my phone is a lot funnier than Spit on my laptop
Gile fuzuul the ahad-e-vafaa ke hote hue
So chup rahaa sitam-e-naaravaa ke hote hue
Ye qurbaton mein ajab faasle pade ki mujhe
Hai aashnaa ki talab aashnaa ke hote hue
Vo hilaagar hain jo majbooriyaan shumaar karen
Chiraag hum ne jalaayen havaa ke hote huye
Na kar kissi pe bharosa ke kashtiyaan doobeen
Khuda ke hote huye naakhuda ke hote huye
Kise khabar hai ki kaasaa-ba-dast phirte hain
Bahut se log saron par humaa ke hote hue
'Faraz' aise bhi lamhen kabhi kabhi aaye
Ki dil girifta rahaa dil-rubaa ke hote hue
I had posted about this earlier, and here is a video demo.
If it’s a fake (given that they are using blogspot.com for a launch site??), it’s not too bad a job.
www.tableconnect.co.cc is being redirected to the blogspot site (usually, it’s the other way around).
A lot of effort would have gone into making the table in the first place. It just doesn’t add up why they wouldn’t bother setting up the pics and demos on a domain and opt for blogspot instead.
Then again, just because it’s NOT on a domain and on blogspot – doesn’t NECESSARILY mean it’s fake, but it does get one thinking along those lines.
Here it is:
I haven’t tried it yet. I usually hold out for an official release, but I am so tempted. Hmm…
Couldn’t help myself. Installed. It works, and I am loving it (for now). Will be restoring the contacts and calendar now and then the apps.
Important – Don’t upgrade WITHOUT wiping the device first. AND DO NOT restore 3rd party apps from Desktop Manager. Download them individually onto the new OS.
Most important, BEFORE wiping OS 5 from your device, take a back up of the Service Books AFTER enabling Legacy Support.
To enable Legacy Support in OS 5 :
After installing OS 6, if you find that your browser is not working (on the mobile network), then you need to restore these Service Books after enabling Legacy Support. To do that in OS 6:
Now restore the OS 5 Service Books that you had backed up and the browser should work fine.
The japs are at it again.
I do like the idea. But – the bag itself weighs about 2.7 KG, and according to Engadget, the height can not be adjusted!
I don’t get it. How hard would it be to put up adjustable/extendable legs? They have been around for ages and have been used widely - from walking sticks to stand up fans.
The translation (thanks to Google) of the official website doesn’t help much.
The Luxist has a lot to say about these Gucci glasses.
I just have one question. Why would anyone (with a working brain) pay USD 225 for a pair of fashionable 3D glasses?
The only time you would be wearing one of these would be when absolutely NO ONE is looking at YOU. They would all be looking on the screen in front that’s playing the 3D movie, right? So, err… who would actually notice your new fancy fashionable designer 3D glasses??
The Luxist does try hard to convince that these would “enhance” your 3D experience and not just look cool (which doesn’t really matter, because no one would be really looking).
