Anti-Theft Car Seat Identifies Driver With 360 Sensors That Monitor The Butt

"

With all the advances in technology, anti-theft measures for automobiles really haven’t moved along at the same pace. If someone steals your car remote, they can get in, start your car, and drive off with it. There has to be a better way to protect your vehicle from theft and that’s exactly why some researchers in Japan have come up with a way to use your butt as a protective measure.

More specifically, they have developed an anti-theft car seat that can effectively identify the person sitting in it. The seat itself is outfitted with 360 sensors and it measures the pressure applied at each of these sensors, generating a 3D representation of the weight and weight distribution. The way you sit is like a fingerprint.

Link

Yes. Who else but the Japs.

The concept is being developed and is scheduled to be available in 2-3 years.

Question - Weight gain/weight loss? Won't that affect the pressure applied on the 360 sensors?

Take Off Offensive Content, Court Tells Social Websites

General Disclaimer:

The contents of this blog (in general) and / or of this post (in specific) are not intended to hurt the sentiments of any individual and / or community.

If you are offended - it is sincerely regretted and I genuinely pity you for your lack of common sense. I also pity your friends and family who have to tolerate your sad existence. Please do seek some help – psychiatric or otherwise – or just go kill yourself and do the world a favour.

This message has been issued in the interest of the general public.


"

NEW DELHI: Even as the controversy over IT minister Kapil Sibal urging social networking sites to censor offensive content rages on, a trial court has directed several sites, including Facebook,Google, Orkut and Youtube, to remove "anti-religious" or "anti-social" content "promoting hatred or communal disharmony".

Administrative civil judge Mukesh Kumar, in an ex-parte order, directed the social networking sites to remove objectionable content in the form of photos, videos or text which might hurt religious sentiments. The court's order came on a civil suit filed by Mufti Aijaz Arshad Qasmi who had submitted the printouts of the contents.

Link

Some dumb fucks believe that they have the right to NOT be offended. Well – what makes you so special? OR perhaps the question should be – What made you so retarded?

The Judge – Mukesh Kumar's decision is idiotic – to say the least. Who decides what is offensive/objectionable? One man's witch is another man's fairy. What may seem offensive to Mufti Aijaz Arshad may be a hilarious joke for someone else.

Can you think of a single joke that could NOT be termed "offensive"? Think about it:

  • The wife jokes would be offensive to married women.
  • The sardaar jokes would be offensive to the Sikhs.
  • The gay jokes would be offensive to gays.
  • Jokes on politicians/lawyers/teachers/IT guys would be offensive to politicians/lawyers/teachers/IT guys.
  • The Vatican and the pope get offended by everything, so no point in mentioning that with an example.
  • We could crack jokes on dogs / cats – but then we would be offending the animal rights activists.

Now let us talk about the "abusive" posts. Well – the social websites can not be blamed for the abusive language used in the posts. These posts / comments are put up by individuals who are angry or stupid or both. Now, for THAT – most of the websites have a "Report / Report Abuse" button. If anyone finds it offensive, they simply need to report the comment – at which point, the website administrators will take action – if required.

So… err, where is the problem?

Dikhaawon pe mat jaao, apni akal ladaao,
Aur, agar ho sake – to court mein koi kaam ke judge baithaao (no offense intended. If I have hurt the sentiments of Judge Mukesh Kumar or those of Mufti Aijaz – it was not intentional. Just trying to be logical. You should try it too).

Dexter – Season 6

dexter-season-6-1024x819

Disappointed. A bit too much of a religious / holy angle to this season. That was a let down, but not the only let down.

Debra (Jennifer Carpenter)  seems to have turned into this super idiotic character. Not that she was smart in the earlier seasons, just that now she is idiotic and a bit annoying as well.

LaGuerta (Lauren Velez) continues her climb towards becoming one of the many ugly, irritating, bitch characters on the tele.

Travis Marshall (Colin Hanks) and Professor Gellar (James Olmos) are absolutely pathetic. The characters are laughable and it is impossible to take either one seriously.

Jamie Batista (Aimee Garcia) is good to look at.

The kills are still fun to watch but the plot was extremely disappointing.

Man Wore A Maxi Pad So He Could Invent A Cheaper One

"

When Arunachalam Muruganantham hit a wall in his research on creating a sanitary napkin for poor women, he decided to do what most men typically wouldn’t dream of. He wore one himself--for a whole week.

Fashioning his own menstruating uterus by filling a bladder with goat’s blood, Muruganantham went about his life while wearing women’s underwear, occasionally squeezing the contraption to test out his latest iteration.

It resulted in endless derision and almost destroyed his family. But no one is laughing at him anymore, as the sanitary napkin-making machine he went on to create is transforming the lives of rural women across India.

Link

Good invention or not - I just don't see the logic or the need for him to test it on himself. I don't see why his wife or the tons of other women - who actually do menstruate - couldn't be used for the testing. A man walking around wearing a sanitary napkin is weird enough. Add to that – Walking around with a bladder filled with goat's blood in your pants - occasionally being squeezed !?! That's just sick.

He might have figured out a cheap way of making the sanitary pads, but that doesn't make him less of a freak.

Sadma To Hai Mujhe Bhi Ki Tujhse Judaa Hoon Main

Qateel Shifai…

Sadma to hai mujhe bhi ki tujhse judaa hoon main
Lekin ye sochta hoon ki ab tera kya hoon main

Bikharaa padaa hai tere hi ghar mein tera vajood
Bekaar mahfilon mein tujhe dhoondhta hoon main

Main khudkashi ke jurm ka karta hoon aitaraaf
Apne badan ki qabr mein kabse gadaa hoon main

Kis-kiska naam laaun zabaan par ki tere saath
Har roz ek shakhs nayaa dekhta hoon main

Naa jaane kis adaa se liya tune mera naam
Duniya samjh rahi hai ke sab kuchch tera hoon main

Le mere tajurbon se sabak ae mere raqeeb
Do chaar saal umr mein tujhse badaa hoon main

Jaagaa hua zameer vo aainaa hai "qateel"
Sone se pahle roz jise dekhta hoon main

Anna At It… Again

Anna says:

"

"I will be found outside the homes of Sonia and Rahul Gandhi," added Hazare.

Link

But Anna was heading to Bombay, right?

"

"If the climate is good in Delhi, I'll fast here, or else in Mumbai," Anna said on Wednesday morning.

Link

So, if the climate in Delhi is not good enough for this duffer Anna, will he insist that Sonia and Rahul Gandhi also move to Bombay (in order to enable Anna to fast outside their homes)?? This buddha has gone senile for sure. Kabhi to apne dimaag se kaam le!

Anna – tera number kab aayega?
Ab mar bhi jaa, aur kitna pakaayega?

Kis Ka Rastaa Dekhe

Kis ka rastaa dekhe - ae dil ae saudaai
Meelon hai khamoshi - barson hai tanhaai
Bhooli duniya kabhi ki - tujhe bhi mujhe bhi
Phir kyon aankh bhar aayi

Koi bhi saaya nahin raahon mein
Koi bhi aayega na baahon mein
Tere liye mere liye - koi nahin rone waala

Jhoota bhi naata nahin chaahun main
Tu hi kyon dooba rahe aahon mein
Koi kisi sang mare - aaisa nahin hone waala

Koi nahin jo, yoon hi jahan mein - baante peer paraai

Tujhe kya beeti hui raaton se
Mujhe kya khoi hui baaton se
Sej nahin chita sahi - jo bhi mile sona hoga

Gai jo dori chhooti haathon se
Lena kya toote hue saathon se
Khushi jahan maangi tune - wahin mujhe rona hoga

Na koi tera na koi mera phir kis ki yaad aai

TOI Needs To Hire Better Reporters

"

The UPA government and minister Kapil Sibal must be congratulated for showing remarkable restraint in not proceeding against Internet companies which hosted pages with defamatory and inflammatory content about religious figures and leaders like Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Congress president Sonia Gandhi. For, they had the wherewithal and, most importantly, the power to arm-twist them into submission, whatever may have been the public reaction.

Link

I started reading the article and the above paragraph is all I read. At the end of the paragraph, I had to look up and see the byline. It is usually more effective to name the author and then call him an idiot.

Dhananjay Mahapatra is an idiot. This may be a biased view – given that I didn't bother to read the entire article, but what I did read was idiotic enough to determine that such articles did not merit my attention (err.. any further attention - once I am done criticising the article).

The power to arm-twist them into submission, whatever may have been the public reaction – Hello duffer Dhananjay, wake up!

Sibal uncle was barking screaming for the entire day because he already had a problem with the public opinion. Clearly he was concerned about the negative public opinion already present on the web and hence the yap session. Stating that they could have exercised their power and ignored the public reaction - is idiotic.

He is a member of a political party in a 'democratic' country (at least on paper). Public opinion matters to him. Did that fact escape your mind when you were typing out this nonsense? Or do you actually believe that a politician sincerely cares about the religious sentiments of a community?!? If you do – then you are more messed up than I initially thought.

Obviously, after Sibal's initial rant – someone with a working brain spoke to Sibal and informed him that all he (Sibal) was doing was in fact encouraging even more negative content. And THAT is why he decided to shut up. There is no remarkable restraint here.

It was a stupid thing to do – to begin with. It got out of hand and the only thing that could be done was to shut up and that is what he did.

Aur kya dekhne ko baaqi hai
Aap se dil lagaa ke dekh liya

Woh mere ho ke bhi mere na hue
Unko apna banaa ke dekh liya

Aaj unki nazar mein kuchh humne
Sabki nazaren bachaa ke dekh liya

'Faiz' taqmeel-e-gham bhi ho na saki
Ishq ko aazmaa ke dekh liya

Aas us dar se toot ti hi nahin
Jaa ke dekha na jaa ke dekh liya

To Kapil Sibal – Could You Please Define The Term 'Censorship'?

Kapil insists that the government is NOT asking for censorship. Let's just take a look at what has been reported so far:

"

"I suggested that these platforms should evolve a mechanism on their own to ensure that such contents are removed as soon as they get to know of it... I have told them that this cannot go on," he said at a press conference in Delhi.

Link

"

The Indian government has asked Internet companies and social media sites like Facebook to prescreen user content from India and to remove disparaging, inflammatory or defamatory content before it goes online, three executives in the information technology industry say.

Link

  • Someone posts a comment.
  • This comment will be screened (Kapil wants the social networking sites to employ personnel to monitor the content round the clock).
  • If the comment is deemed offensive / inflammatory / disparaging / defamatory, then it must be removed.

So you do want censorship - but instead of blocking/banning the site yourself, you want the site owner/administrator to do the censoring of the comment(s) that YOU find offensive.

Dress it up however you want, this IS censorship. Don't believe me? Here is the definition:

cen·sor·ship/ˈsensərˌSHip/

Noun:

The practice of officially examining books, movies, etc., and suppressing unacceptable parts.

Unless you intend to have the meaning of the term altered, it would be advisable to keep your mouth shut. The only thing you have managed to accomplish so far is generating even more negative comments - for yourself and your party - on the web.

CHENNAI: Imagine losing your USB drive with important data while travelling. You can only fret. Four years ago, when Chennai-born Lux Anantharaman, then a researcher specializing in cryptography and security at a government-run lab in Singapore, went through such an ordeal, he decided to do something about it.

Insert the USB drive you are carrying in any computer and you can access all your files securely and without the need for any third-party software. For iTwin, all you need is internet access. And it costs just about Rs 5,000 ($99).

Here is what Engadget had to say about this in 2009:

Finally, a product that might finally make this whole internet thing worthwhile by allowing someone to copy a file over it. Amazing, right?

I don't see any reason to jump with joy because some madarasi finally figured out how to use the internet.

Idiots On Either Side Of The Border

"

In May last year, Indian police detained a pigeon and kept it under armed guard after it was caught on an alleged spying mission for Pakistan.

The bird was found by a resident of India's Punjab state, which borders Pakistan, and taken to a police station 40 km from Amritsar.

and now....

"

Believe it or not but authorities in Pakistan's Punjab province have "arrested" a monkey after it crossed the border with India, according to a media report on Monday.

The monkey was captured by wildlife officials in Bahawalpur, Express News channel reported.

Local residents initially tried to capture the monkey after it entered Cholistan area of Bahawalpur district. After the monkey evaded them, the people informed wildlife officials, who captured the animal after a struggle.

The monkey was taken to Bahawalpur Zoo, where officials named him Bobby.

BJP To Create Awareness On Misuse Of Internet By Children

"

Abhinandan Palsapure, IT convener of Nagpur BJP, said youngsters are being exposed to pornography at a very young age, which is causing a lot of problems in society.

"Many parents give mobiles to their children in middle school. Once I checked the mobiles of class VIII students and was shocked to find that most of them had stored nude pictures. Even if we want to give mobiles to our kids the storage space should be minimum. We should periodically check their mobiles."

Link

Storage space should be minimum. Implying - 20 nude pictures on a mobile is fine, but 200 isn't?!?

Is it really that difficult to make an intelligent argument?? Arrey, if you don't have something sensible to say, then keep your mouth shut.

Church Member Seeks To Ban Interracial Couples, Says He Is Not Racist

How very Christian of you!

"

A tiny church in rural Kentucky has voted to ban interracial couples from joining its congregation, pitting members against each other in an argument over race.

Members at the Gulnare Free Will Baptist Church in Kentucky voted on Sunday on the resolution, which says the church "does not condone interracial marriage".

The church member who crafted the resolution, Melvin Thompson, said he is not racist and called the matter an "internal affair".

Dean Harville, the church's secretary, disagreed - he said the resolution came after his daughter visited the church this summer with her boyfriend from Africa.
