Clearly, the researchers are convinced that Android users are super dumb.
Ok, I'll play along. Here are a few questions:
- Agreed that the pedestrian is distracted and ignores the oncoming traffic. What about the driver? How come the driver can't see the idiotic pedestrian??
- What about the cars coming in from the other side? Ever heard of a two-way street or is that an alien concept?
- Given that the makers believe an app is needed to save us from jumping in front of an oncoming car, my next question is - Does the app start off with a splash screen - insisting that this crap will work only if the phone camera is facing the direction of the oncoming traffic?

Jaipur company dupes 1.75 lakh people of over Rs 200 crore
Read the rest of the article and you will be surprised as to just how stupid people can be. I had a very difficult time. I mean.. I know "people" – in general, are a stupid lot, but THIS was too much.
Yes. A lot of people say a lot of things. That doesn't mean you have to believe everything, does it??! There is a reason why you have a brain. USE IT you dumb fuck!
It will be extremely difficult to surpass this gentleman on the stupidity scale. He never even went to their offices! He had money saved for his daughter's wedding and how does he handle those savings? Someone knocks on his door and assures him that nothing will happen to the money, and this guy hands it over!?!?
ROTFL. Commissioner uncle – Jaago!

I am NOT going to link the video here (or anywhere).
People have been talking about this song – A LOT – for the past few days. For some reason, it didn't make me curious enough (these days, people will talk about anything) and I just didn't bother looking it up, let alone listen to the song.
Yesterday I got an email from a good friend of mine (Fakhry – you will regret this) with a link to this song and the subject - Hear it. Obviously… I did click on the link and listen to the song.
The logic (for clicking the link) was – Fakhry knows what type of music I like and what sort of nonsense ticks me off. If he is suggesting that I listen to a particular song, I may not like it as much but it definitely wouldn't be something this horrid. IF it were this horrid, Fakhry (being a good friend) - would never send me the link. At least not without a warning.
This song is shit.
I do not want statistics and number of views / Likes / Shares! Everyone is entitled to their own views / opinion and in my opinion – the general public has shit taste.

Errr. 1 million Aussie dollars is 986,200 USD.
Now, why would the newspaper site report it as 1 million Australian dollars ($1 million)???
- If it's the USD figure, it is wrong.
- Is it just for the symbol? Do they think the readers can't read the word dollars and need the symbol to identify???

Try to explain something for their benefit and it's opposed with great enthusiasm. It's like they have something to prove.
I could understand if this were to happen in a debate or a discussion, but when it happens during the course of a normal conversation - where all one is trying to do is suggest an alternative approach only to simplify the task for the other person – my head just turns blank.
There is not a single logical explanation I can conjure up to explain the behaviour / reaction. Perhaps it is just the way I talk that makes the other person feel the need to oppose me with all his/her might.
Decision – provide suggestions ONLY when asked for.
Hmm. Probably the people in his village drink so they can tolerate him (Anna). Hum to issliye peete hain ke tumhen bardaasht kar saken.
Buddha Anna must’ve been drunk to actually think someone would respond positively to that statement. I don’t get it why he is opposed to drinking. With the type of bullshit and stunts this idiot keeps coming up with, it would be helpful for him if his followers were in an inebriated state.
If anything at all, Anna should be passing out joints to the crowd at his meetings / gatherings / rally. Not only will it be a bigger gathering, it will definitely be a peaceful one. Tolerating Anna’s nonsense would be so much easier. Want to do something for the country eh, Anna? Here is your chance.
I would like it (a lot) if someone would tie up Anna to a pole and beat him. On second thoughts – that would take too long.
Where the hell are those terrorists / assassins when you need one?!! Arrey bhai, koi hai? Iss
gaandu Gandhivaadi ko goli kab maaroge?

So why bother making a forecast in the first place (given that you know it is subject to error)??
Asserted inflation would moderate to 7-7.5 % by March 2012 - ahem... I have a question - isn't this (too) a short-term forecast?
Lagta hai Sardaar ji ke permanently baarah baj gaye hain.
Qareeb maut khadi hai zaraa thahar jaao
Qazaa se aankh ladi hai zaraa thahar jaao
Thaki thaki si fazaayen bujhe bujhe taare
Badi udaas ghadi hai zaraa thahar jaao
Nahin ummeed ki hum aaj ki sahar dekhen
Ye raat hum pe kadi hai zaraa thahar jaao
Abhi na jaao ki taaron kaa dil dhadakta hai
Tamaam raat padi hai zaraa thahar jaao
Phir iss ke baad kabhi hum na tum ko rokenge
Labon pe saans adi hai zaraa thahar jaao
Dam-e-firaaq mein jee bhar ke tum ko dekh to loon
Ye faisale ki ghadi hai zaraa thahar jaao

I am thinking about adding another label / category to tag some of my blog posts - Stupid Rich People
Do read the entire article. It’s got a lot of WTF moments. For example: In the letter to mobile phone firms, watchdog director Muhammad Talib Doger said "the system should be implemented within seven days ... and a report submitted to PTA on monthly basis on the number of blocked SMSs"
Ahem… guess it’s ok when a cricketer uses abusive language on the field – repeatedly. Even more acceptable when the entire team does it! That aside, this country does plenty of serious issues that merit attention. I fail to see how this (rude text message) qualifies for this degree of attention.
Concerned about offensive language in text messages. Err… Seriously! Don’t these authorities have more important things to worry about?

I had posted earlier about a Comtel Air flight refusing to take off until the passengers paid additional money.
For that incident, (as reported by the BBC) - Bhupinder Kandra stated that the passengers will receive a refund of the additional amount paid.
barks again has issued another statement:
It’s bad enough that Comtel Air is NOT going to refund the amount to those passengers. What makes it even worse is - there is yet another flight being delayed and Bhupinder says the flight will NOT take off unless the passengers pay up another EUR 125 each!
His point is – the travel agent has not paid HIM. Either the Indian government pays or the passengers pay or the British government pays or someone pays the money into his office or else the flight will not take off.
Aakhir apni zaat dikha hi di. Chotte log humeshaa chotte hi rahenge. Doesn’t matter if they become the director of passenger services or majority shareholders.
Agar business nahin sambhaal sakte to shuru kyon karte ho?
I seriously hope someone sues this guy for every last penny he has.
Comtel Air introduced cheap flights from Birmingham to Amritsar in the Punjab, via Vienna, last month.
But asking passengers to pay for refuelling!? I have loads of reasons for not flying budget airlines, but I never thought something like this would be included in that list.
Interestingly enough, here is the message from their website:

Kaun Hai Waha – This is the first time I am hearing about this film. Mr. Joseph Dias states that this is a marketing gimmick for the moviemakers – probably.
I wonder if Mr. Joseph realises that his idiotic protest is proving to be much more effective (than the posters) in marketing the film.
I am picturing Mr. Dias watching The Exorcist or The Omen. If a poster depicting an inverted cross has outraged him so much – it’s not so hard to imagine his head blowing off when he watches any of those 1970’s films. Hmm, I really think somebody should screen those films for him. Can’t wait to read the next day’s headlines.
If it’s hurting your religious sentiments – don’t watch the film. How hard is that? Furthermore, if a film poster hurts your religious sentiments, probably it’s time to take a closer look at your belief structure. Clearly there is something lacking over there.

- 2 categories – Space Rings and Space Wedding Rings.
- Limited units available – 50 Pairs of each category.
- Price - USD 12,000 a pair (The first image) and USD 17,000 a pair (Second image)
What’s special about these rings?
These have been made from a special lot of gold that was sent to space in a unique packaging and stayed in space for 15 minutes. This lot was then turned into these rings (rolls eyes).
Along with the ring, the buyers will also receive a USB pen drive containing the documented details of the space flight that carried the gold.
Dikhaawon pe mat jaao, apni akal ladaao.

Meena Kumari Naaz…
Puchhate ho to suno kaise basar hoti hai
Raat khairaat ki, sadqe ki sahar hoti hai
Saans bharne ko to jeenaa nahin kahte yaa rab
Dil hi dukhta hai na ab aasteen tar hoti hai
Jaise jaagi hui aankhon mein chubhen kaanch ke khvaab
Raat is tarah deewaanon ki basar hoti hai
Gham hi dushman hai mera gham hi ko dil dhundhta hai
Ek lamhe ki judaai bhi agar hoti hai
Ek markaz ki talaash ek bhatakti khushbu
Kabhi manzil kabhi tamhid-e-safar hoti hai

I didn’t bother to read the complete article.
Regardless of the reasons that led (yes, that IS the past tense for ‘lead’) Judge Kenneth to sign off on this decision, I believe this is down right ridiculous.
How stupid does the world have to get before it comes to an end?! It’s way overdue.

Raat mujhe ye keh ke chidaaye
Taaron si bhari main - tu hai akeli haaye
Taanon se main jali-jali jaaon
Aaj ruko to bali jaaon
Kya kahoon – bolo na
Kya sunoon - bolo na
Raaton ki harkaton ko tum bhi samjho na
Baaton ki harkaton ko tum bhi samjho na
Shaitaaniyaan ye roz dikhaaye
Aisa kuch karo ke raat lajaaye
Kya kahoon – bolo na
Kya sunoon - bolo na
Iss dil ki karvaton ko tum bhi samjho na
Saanson ki hasraton ko tum bhi samjho na
Betaabiyaan raat jagaaye
Aisa kuch karo ke hosh udd jaaye
Raat mujhe ye keh ke chidaaye
Taaron si bhari mein tu hai akeli haaye
Keh do isse ye na itraaye
Kal jo aaye to sar ko jhukaaye
