Alcatraz

Alcatraz2_wallpapers_1280x1024_ej

Watched the first 2 episodes.

That was enough to convince me that I would not be able to tolerate the stupidity for long. E.g. There is this guy who can:

  • Pull rank over the local Police Department.
  • Is supposed to be somewhere on the top of a Special Task Force.
  • Has been waiting all these years for the prisoners to 'return'.
  • Has a basement lab with all funky screens and supposedly high tech equipment.

And … HE can't take a guess that Jack Sylvane will go and visit his (Jack's) brother?? Not very bright now are we?? Was it really that difficult to go through the files of the 63's (rolls eyes) while you were waiting for them to return?

Question – didn't any one else have a problem swallowing why the files and the prisoner's STUFF was still in the basement? I mean, they moved everything, got fake transfer orders, death certificates … the works. Why would they leave around boxes of the prisoner's stuff?

Please don't tell me "this is answered in the later episodes or seasons". If a show starts off in such an idiotic manner, it is difficult to maintain interest till the end of the episode, let alone the rest of the season.  

Deleted this nonsense and now starting of with Grimm

MLA discovers ‘cure’ for AIDS

Squeeze your private parts tightly and urinate forcefully after intercourse to keep AIDS at bay, is Rajasthan MLA Devi Singh Bhatti’s prescription for people.

The BJP MLA from Kolayat constituency in Bikaner district imparted his knowledge to a shocked gathering — which included HIV-positive people — during a sensitisation workshop for lawmakers on the assembly premises on Thursday.

Climbing onto the dais without being invited, Bhatti dispensed his advice, even as speaker Deependra Singh Shekhawat struggled to rein in legislators who were interrupting speakers. The HIV-positive people in the audience could not hide their disgust.

Thanks BVG

I have no idea how to title this post. But, I do have a suggestion for Devi Singh Bhatti. I think he is the perfect candidate to try out my experimental treatment for curing stupidity - Get on top of a really tall building and jump. Help make this world a better place.

Seriously, isn't there any way we could give Afzal Guru another chance? Is there a petition out that I can sign?

At An Appropriate Time!!

"

Army chief General VK Singh wrote to the Prime Minister earlier this month, warning that Army tanks have run out of ammunition and that obsolete technology is putting the country's security at risk. The letter was raised in Parliament today, leading to more embarrassment for Defence Minister AK Antony.

He said the Army chief's letter was meant to be "top secret" and that the government will respond to it  "at an appropriate time."

On March 12, the General wrote to the Prime Minister asking him to "pass suitable directions to enhance the preparedness of the Army".  The chief described the state of artillery, air defence, and infantry as "alarming." He writes the army's tanks are "devoid of critical ammunition to defeat enemy tanks" and air defence is "97% obsolete and it doesn't give the deemed confidence to protect... from the air."

General Singh wrote to the Prime Minister after sending a similar letter a few weeks earlier directly to the Defence Minister.

Link

The Army Chief General says that the army's tanks are devoid of critical ammunition and the Defence Minister says – the government will respond at an appropriate time!

Waah.

There is a possibility that the Army Chief General could be exaggerating. Given the recent (dragged) public drama that took place between the Army Chief and the government, this wouldn't be a surprise.

But the Defence Minister's idiotic response is a lot more than just surprising.

I have said this before as well – DOOB MARO!

Man Saws Off Own Foot And Then Throws It Into The Oven

Most people hate going to work, but they go because they have to (someone has to pay the bills). Some people just don't want to work. And then – some REALLY don't want to work.

"

An unemployed Austrian man sawed his foot off, apparently to avoid being found fit to go back to work.

Hours before an appointment on Monday for the labour office to check on his health, the 56-year-old man held his left leg against an electric saw in his home workshop and severed his foot just above the ankle, Austrian broadcaster ORF reported.

Bleeding profusely, the man from the province of Styria then threw the foot into an oven, hobbled to his garage and called an ambulance.

What does one say to something like that?

What Manmohan Singh, Obama will eat at Seoul

"

Seoul: Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, US President Barack Obama and 51 other world leaders can expect to enjoy a sumptuous spread of Western and Korean delicacies at official banquets during the two-day nuclear summit.

The international leaders can taste 'bibimbap' which is rice with assorted vegetables, reported The Chosun Ilbo. Then there is tilefish from Jeju Island.

They can also partake fair persimmon from North Gyeongsang Province and honeyed mountain ginseng -- all of which can washed down with locally made sparkling wine pressed from omija, a special type of red Korean berry.

Anthem Mix Up – This One Is Bad

It is being reported that there was some international shooting competition being held in Kuwait (no clue).

Anyway, moving on – A Kazakh athlete won a medal and the national anthem of Kazakhstan was supposed to be played. It is being reported that instead of the real anthem – the guys in Kuwait played the parody anthem from the film Borat.

BBC Link

Just in case someone is not familiar with Borat's version of the anthem, here are the lyrics:

"

Kazakhstan greatest country in the world.
All other countries are run by little girls.
Kazakhstan number one exporter of potassium.
Other countries have inferior potassium.

Kazakhstan home of Tinshein swimming pool.
It’s length thirty meter and width six meter.
Filtration system a marvel to behold.
It remove 80 percent of human solid waste.

Kazakhstan, Kazakhstan you very nice place.
From Plains of Tarashek to Northern fence of Jewtown.
Kazakhstan friend of all except Uzbekistan.
They very nosey people with bone in their brain.

Kazakhstan industry best in the world.
We invented toffee and trouser belt.
Kazakhstan’s prostitutes cleanest in the region.
Except of course Turkmenistan’s

Kazakhstan, Kazakhstan you very nice place.
From Plains of Tarashek to Northern fence of Jewtown.
Come grasp the might penis of our leader.
From junction with the testes to tip of its face!

Update On The Norway Nautanki

An Update to the post I had put up yesterday.

"

The Norway child custody battle took a new turn on Wednesday with Anurup Bhattacharya, the father of Abhigyan, 3, and Aishwarya, 1, denying he was seeking a divorce from wife, Sagarika

On Tuesday, both Anurup and Arunabhas had told the Norwegian authorities that they did not want to remove the children from foster care. The two came back on Wednesday with the opposite request.

Anurup and Sagarika also sent a joint email in which they admitted having had differences but said they stood united for their kids.

Link

Told you so.

Pretty sure there will be more nautanki in the coming days.

Fringe – Season 2 – Err.. Back To Being Idiotic

Someone had commented that this series was a well thought out series. I am guessing he would have a different episode guide than the one I have. Other than Walter, not a single character is interesting or entertaining.

Season 2, Episode 11:

Charlie Francis makes an appearance. This character was killed off and here he is – back with the Fringe team. Only explanation seems to be – this was supposed to be an unaired episode or perhaps this episode would have been a part of Season 1 and got somehow placed into Season 2.

I would Google it up to be sure, but even if I am doing absolutely nothing and sitting idle, it would be better use of my time – as opposed to Googling about this series.

Season 2, Episode 17:

I have no clue why Olivia is insisting that Walter must tell Peter that he (Peter) is from the 'other universe'.

"

OLIVIA: Walter, I have to tell him. I've got to tell Peter the truth.

WALTER: (quietly, but firmly) But that's not what we discussed.

OLIVIA: I know, and I'm sorry. But he deserves to know the truth about who he is.

WALTER: No. No, you don't understand. Things have never been better between us. I can't lose him again. I can't.

OLIVIA: You won't. Once he knows the whole story. Walter, you saved his life. I'm sure that he will understand.

WALTER: No, he won't. He will never forgive me.

OLIVIA: I -- I have to tell him. If it was the other way around, I would want him to tell me.

WALTER: I'm begging you. Not yet. Please. Give me time to prepare. Please.

What makes her think that disclosing this fact would make things better? Seriously, this Olivia character is ticking me off even more with every episode.

Later in the episode Olivia visits Nina Sharp. Nina insists that Olivia is there so that Nina would talk her out of telling Peter the truth. I don't even know how to react to that level of stupidity.

Towards the end, the episode reached its most idiotic level. Nina and Broyles are chit chatting. Here is how that goes:

"

NINA: Hmm. So I don't imagine you called me all the way down here just to share in your victory.

BROYLES: Aside from Olivia Dunham, there are still nearly a dozen unaccounted for people from the Jacksonville experiments, and thirty more from the drug trials in Wooster. If they all have capabilities anything like the ones we've seen, and if someone were to find them...

NINA: Well, Phillip, (thoughtfully) then we need to find them first.

Err, isn't that what these morons have been trying to do from the beginning? Coming all the way down there just to share in Broyles victory seemed like a waste of time to Nina, but Broyles telling Nina that there might be others with similar capabilities isn't ??!

Didn't Nina already know that there are others with similar capabilities / abilities?

This show is a waste of disc space and I am not going to bother with the following seasons. Only reason I will be completing Season 2 is because I already have it downloaded.

No eye candy, pointless statements, annoying/idiotic lead character. The only thing good about the show is Walter, but I can watch or read Walter's quotes on YouTube or Fringepedia. There is absolutely no need for me to subject myself to this nonsense any further.

That Issue About The Kids In Norway

Pretty sure that most would be familiar with the issue. For those who are not:

"

The two kids were taken away from their parents Anurup and Sagarika Bhattacharya, an NRI couple living there, by Barnevarne Norwegian CWS last May on the ground of "emotional disconnect" and put in a foster home.

Link

After this, a lot of noise was made in India.

  • Relatives / general public were protesting (in India).
  • Grandparents of the kids were meeting with the President of India.
  • Ministry of External Affairs got involved.
  • Shit loads of statements were issued.
  • Special Envoys were set up to visit Norway and resolve the matter.
  • An uncle was supposed to get custody of the children.

As per the latest updates, Anurup and Anurup's father are now insisting that Sagarika is fucked in the head suffering from acute schizophrenia. According to Anurup's father Sagarika has had the problem since 2007 (shortly after their marriage) and Anrurup has been tolerating her!

"

"Yes, Anurup is mulling legal separation from his wife as she suffers from acute schizophrenia. Last night (Monday) Sagarika attacked my son and badly injured him. Since then, he has fled from her and is living elsewhere. She has been attacking him for long," Anurup's father Ajay Bhattacharya told IANS.

"Anurup came to know about her mental disorder shortly after their marriage in 2007 and has been tolerating her bad behaviour ever since. But now he cannot take it anymore. He had kept quiet till now to get back the custody of his children," he added.

Link

Apparently, they have no problem with the actions of the Norwegian CWS.

I don't really have a view on who should get the custody of the kids, but this couple should be taken into custody. Get a psych evaluation done – not just for the female but for the entire family – Anurup, Sagarika, Grandparents, the relatives who were screaming and shouting in front of the media. Each and everyone. They should all be remanded to custody till the matter is sorted.

The one time the Indian government actually tried to do something helpful for an NRI stuck in a messy situation and it turns out the entire family had been concealing information relevant to the case. Well done!

I am guessing there will be more statements issued now. Anurup or his father could very well retract his latest statement and say he was misquoted (rolls eyes). Sagarika's family will most likely come up with statements of their own. The NCWS will wonder what the fuck is going on and the kids will bang their heads against the wall and wonder what they have done to be born into a cuckoo family.

More drama to come, that is for sure.

Shaabash. If EARLIER there wasn't any logical / legal ground for removing the kids from their parents, the NCWS NOW has enough reasons to make sure these kids stay as far away as possible - from this crazy lying family.

TSA Nonsense Continues

"

A toddler in a wheelchair is stopped by the TSA at ORD (O'Hare Airport in Chicago) and forced to into a sequestered area. On his way to a family vacation in Disney, this 3 year old boy is in a body cast for a broken leg. Despite assurances from his father that "everything is ok", he is physically trembling with fear while he watches his two siblings, mother, father, grandfather and grandmother pass through along with everyone else...only to be singled out.

Grief is the price we pay for love.

- Queen Elizabeth II

Fringe – Season 2

fringe-season-2 

Just started off with Season 2. Shape-shifters included. Nice touch! Junior FBI Agent Amy Jessup (played by Meghan Markle) – not bad.

Still having a problem with Olivia Dunham, though. Perhaps I wouldn't find her so annoying if she wasn't blonde. Definitely wouldn't find her so annoying if she looked better. Too shallow?

Routine

You already know what you are expected to do/complete during the course of the day. It is possible to plan ahead and some of us (if not most) actually do that. The problem is – even a slightest deviation from the routine is enough to ruin the entire day. Some thing like an unexpected traffic jam, a visit to the doctor, car service, accident, disruption of internet services... could be just about anything!

The problem is significantly worse in my case. Once I have organised the routine tasks and managed to successfully find an efficient manner of executing them, I end up having some extra time on my hands. Now, when this happens in a work environment – what I end up doing is including additional tasks into the routine. These are not mandatory but have been included in an attempt to assist in the execution of future tasks.

For example – I am required to do a weekly reconciliation. Now, it is not mandatory that I do a daily reconciliation but given that I do have some time on my hands, I end up doing it. The objective is - if the daily recon has been done for the 5 days, the weekly reconciliation will be a breeze and not a time consuming / tedious chore.

To validate further how a daily recon helps - It is a lot easier to verify the transactions for one day, as opposed to verifying transactions for 5 days in one stretch.

This is where things get even more complicated. You come across an issue that wouldn't have been a big deal – had you come across it at the end of the week. It would be a minor deviation from the manual calculations and would have negligible impact when considered over the period of 5 days.

Since I came across it NOT at the end of the week but at the end of the day – I know the deviation is for the transactions of that day itself. In my attempt to resolve the issue, a lot of people are going to get upset. Their problem - "Why do you have to bother with a daily recon when only a weekly is required? If you weren't doing this, you wouldn't know about the deviation and we wouldn't have to sit and fix it. At the end of the week, it would be a normal adjustment and no one would have a problem".

That was just an example. Now factor this in:

  • To make the weekly tasks easier, I include a few tasks into the daily routine.
  • To make the monthly tasks easier, I include a few more tasks into the weekly routine.
  • To make the quarterly tasks easier, I include a few more tasks into the monthly routine.
  • To make the yearly tasks easier, I include a few more tasks into the quarterly routine.

And I have been doing that for so long that these extra tasks no longer seem like extra tasks. They have become part of the routine. Not just in my head, but now everybody else has gotten used to it and expects it!

I started with this to make things easier. I can assure you – that has not happened.

Just rambling. Don't expect anyone to actually understand that. Just thinking – all that talk about efficient time management bla bla, and in the end – you get screwed over anyway.

Fringe – Season 1 Episode 10

160px-RobertJones

Finally!

Now this episode was actually interesting and now I want to watch the rest of the season. Up until now, I was simply watching it because:

  • I had nothing better to do. Nothing to watch either. 
  • Already downloaded the damn thing and felt it would be a complete waste if I deleted it without watching it. 

I still don't like Olivia Dunham, but I am really impressed by David Robert Jones, played by Jared Harris. That is what has made the show interesting for me. 

Read a bit about the character, and it seems that initially the character was penned in only as a "villain-of-the-week". It was because the audience really liked the character, they promoted David Robet Jones to the main villain for Season 1.

All that said – a bit of eye candy really wouldn't have hurt.

Fringe – Season 1 Update

Just watched episodes 4, 5 & 6.

As I mentioned earlier, it is watchable – BUT I just don't find it interesting enough. The cast is really not helping. Would have been so much easier to tolerate some of the nonsense* if only there was a bit of eye candy. Anna Torv is NOT eye candy, and this time I am sure it is not JUST the colour of her hair.

The characters are… I find them a bit lame.

Olivia Dunham, what does she bring to the team? She rarely has a clue about what is going on. She has a confused look in those green eyes of hers and keeps running around from Charlie to Broyles to Sharp to the Bishops. SHE doesn't really do anything, does she?

Then we have Charlie. What does he do except take orders from Olivia? 6 episodes, and all I have seen him do is run errands for Olivia.

Then we have Broyles – The lanky nigger. I find him annoying. Not disturbing or unnerving – Just annoying. And again, this has nothing to do with the colour of his skin. Every time Lance Reddick is framed as walking in some corridor (and that happens a lot), I am expecting him to break out into a disco routine.

Episode 6, Olivia talks about her father/step father (sorry, wasn't really bothered) beating up her mother bla bla bla. I threw my hands up and had my eyes rolling. I just knew this was coming. For once can we have a female character who does not have daddy issues?!

Yes yes, had a few more Fringe addicts telling me – "It gets interesting. It is all connected. There is a logic". Well I have sat through 6 episodes and the show has still not managed to interest me. What is the point in making the later episodes interesting? Given that the early episodes didn't generate interest – why would anyone watch the next episodes?

Obviously the world doesn't agree with my logic, given that this series continues to run – successfully (?!?) into a fourth season. Something wrong with the world, or is it just me? I am sure it is just me, but – how? This really isn't THAT good a show (not yet, anyways).

I really feel bad when I waste bandwidth. Will tolerate it through the first season anyway. Who knows. May be it actually does get interesting. I felt really bad when I was deleting Lost from the external hard drive.

But seriously, would it really hurt if they had put in a bit of eye candy in Fringe? Is that asking too much?


Notes:

* An example of the 'nonsense' I was referring to:

Season 1 Episode 6 – The Cure.

Peter gets information from Nina Sharp but doesn't want to tell Olivia about the source of the information.

Based on this ' solid lead' - Olivia gets her errand boy Charlie to set up a tactical team. Peter tells her that he is tracking the visible heat signature of the radioactive isotopes. Olivia is convinced and uses the same explanation to convince Charlie.

Bishop Sr. i.e. Walter interrupts to inform that radioactive isotopes do not have a visible heat signature. But he is stopped by Bishop Jr.

Now, I really don't know if radioactive isotopes have a visible heat signature or not. I don't really care if they can be traced/tracked via a satellite or not. You see, I am NOT investigating the case and hence I really don't need to know all this crap.

On the other hand - Errand Boy Charlie and Good For Nothing Olivia – are supposed to be investigating this case and hence are supposed to have some idea about what is happening. Clearly neither of them do and are more than happy to believe whatever crap one tells the other.

Fringe – Season 1

Done with the first 3 episodes. Watching the fourth one right now.

Fail to see the appeal. It's not like I have a problem with the show. It is watchable, if not enjoyable. Simply put – I am done with 3 episodes and the show isn't as intriguing or interesting as I was led to believe.

Racism Curing Pill – Propranolol !!

"

The beta-blocker drug can reduce 'subconscious' racism, the Oxford University study found.

Researchers found that people who took propranolol scored significantly lower on a standard test used to detect subconscious racial attitudes, than those who took a placebo.

The researchers believe propranolol reduces racial bias because such subconscious thoughts are triggered by that autonomic nervous system.

Link

Err.. I think it's time that someone took my suggestion/request seriously and had all these [mad] "researchers" locked up for good.

A PILL for curing racism!? What next? Have they also found a cure for stupidity? Because these "researchers" could definitely use that cure for themselves.

And the brilliant study that helped the retards at Oxford arrive at this conclusion is:

"

Their small study took 36 white student volunteers, gave half a single 40mg dose of propranolol and half a placebo, and asked them all to undertake the Implicit Association Test - designed to test "subtle and spontaneous biased behaviour" - two hours later.

The test requires participants to visually sort particular words like 'joy' ,'evil', 'happy' and 'glorious', as well as black and white faces, into the correct categories.

The idiots at Oxford are making these absurd comments about a racism curing pill based on - A 2 hour study conducted on 36 white student volunteers and an Implicit Association Test!!

Hang on a second. They tested this ridiculous theory only on white people?!! Are the brains at Oxford suggesting that only white people can be racists? Isn't that a bit err.. racist.

If such "researchers" continue making similar retarded observations, then the next time someone tells you they studied at Oxford - take that person to the side and tell him NOT to say that out loud, if he ever wants to be taken seriously.

Mayawati Barks

The bitch is out the door but she couldn't resist yapping. Just something I would like to highlight here:

"

She said her defeat must be blamed on the communalization of the elections by the Congress and BJP.  The former chief minister said 70% of Muslims voted for Mulayam Singh Yadav and his Samajwadi Party as a result.

Highlights from her press conference:

Congress and BJP have created trouble here. Congress for its selfish interests played the communal card by offering backward Muslims a sub-quota.  BJP opposed this, but to protect upper caste voters.  They also tried to win over Other Backward Castes (OBCs). The Muslims then panicked about the BJP returning to power. They found the Congress weak.  The reservation issue worked against the Congress.

So the Muslims rejected us along with the Congress and almost 70% of them picked the Samajwadi Party.

But what is reassuring is that opposition parties who tried to communalize the election did not manage to dent our Dalit voters who remain loyal to us.

Dalits have voted only for us.  And that is why we placed No 2.  If not for them, we would have slipped much further.

I want to from the bottom of my heart thank the Dalits through you, the media.

Link

So according to Mayawati - the Congress and BJP tried to communalize the elections. They failed and the benefit went to Samajwadi Party. As if to validate her observation on communalization of the election – she states almost 70% of the Muslim votes were bagged by the Samajwadi Party.

Ok. But here is the interesting part. In the same press conference – she states 100% of the Dalits voted for HER! So, 70% of Muslims voting for Samajwadi Party is communalization of the elections. But 100% of Dalits voting for Mayawati is NOT??!

Just for the record – I have absolutely no interest in the election results. In my view - they are all equally incompetent, equally corrupt and equally indifferent to the general public. This is on Party level.

It doesn't matter which party gets the majority. They might have some differences in their manifestos, but we all know what happens to these manifestos / proposed policies / promises after the elections. Regardless of which party is in power – manifestos are shredded, proposed policies remain as propositions and promises are forgotten.

Drilling down to individual politician level, some are more idiotic than others.

Talk About Overkill

Link

That is the Nokia 808 PureView.

I didn't bother to read the features or specifications of the device. I was rolling my eyes when I read that this handset incorporates a 41 MP Camera Sensor. Yes, 41 (Forty One)!

What a waste.

Why doesn't Nokia just make a digital camera instead?

Tere Nisaar Saaqiyaa, Jitni Piyuun Pilaaye Jaa

Rustom Sehgal Wafa…

Tere nisaar saaqiyaa, jitni piyuun pilaaye jaa
Mast nazar ka vaasta, mast mujhe banaaye jaa

Tujhko kissi se garz kya, bijli kahin giraaye jaa
Dil jale yaa jigar jale, tu yoon hi muskuraaye jaa

Saamne mere aa ke dekh, rukh se naqaab hataa ke dekh
Khilaman-e-dil hai muntazir, barq-e-nazar giraaye jaa

'Wafa'-e-badnasib ko bakhshaa hai tune dard jo
Hai koi is ki bhi davaa, itna zaraa bataaye jaa

Scientists Research Redheads

"

Research has produced evidence that redheads are less sensitive to stinging pain in the skin.

This was shown in tests where capsaicin, the active substance in chilli, was injected into the skin to produce pain.

"Our tests showed that redheads are less sensitive to this particular type of pain. They react less to pressure close to the injected area, or to a pinprick. They seem to be a bit better protected, and that is a really interesting finding," says Professor Lars Arendt-Nielsen of the Center for Sensory-Motor Interaction at Aalborg University.

They are more affected by some things and less by others.

This has led scientists to theorise that the cause of these differences is likely to be something fundamental: redheads may possess a 'redhead' gene.

Professor Lars and his team of mad scientists / researchers should be locked away in a prison and the key should be thrown away.

Why can't these people put their grants and laboratories to better use?! Is it really too much to expect?

Sri Lankan Man Dies Trying To Win Burial-Alive Record

"

A Sri Lankan man has died while trying to break an informal local record for the longest time spent being buried alive, police say.

Janaka Basnayake, 24, allegedly buried himself with the help of family and friends in a trench sealed with wood and soil in the town of Kantale.

Err… more often than not, stupid actions lead to stupid results (common sense). I seriously doubt anyone is sad or surprised by the event. If at all anyone is – you really shouldn't be.

Might be a bit too insensitive on my part, but I seriously believe that the world could do with fewer idiots. If they decide to kill themselves – much better. Saves us the trouble of wishing them dead and/or looking for a crash course in Dexterology (Dexter – serial killer)

People have been coming up with a lot of crazy ideas in the name of Art, Creativity, Entertainment:

  • Idiot Artist injects herself with horse blood and walks around wearing hooves [Link].
  • Wafaa Bilal – Crazy NYU Professor gets a plate installed in the back of his head to mount a camera [Link].
  • Ekta Kapoor's The Dirty Picture [Link].

So, if one such idiot does die, I think the world should rejoice and hope that the next idiot in line gets inspired and does something just as stupid.

"

Doctors say that a post-mortem examination has not determined the cause of death and further medical investigations are being conducted.

Really?? They can't determine the cause of death? I wonder if the doctors have considered 'being buried alive' as a possible cause.

Dil Mera Muft Ka !?!

Firstly, THAT crap is NOT a mujra. I don't know how to categorise it, but whatever that retarded bitch is doing – it is definitely NOT a mujra.

Secondly, the lyrics are horrendous. Premi 75 humaare?! Thu. The rest of the lyrics just make it worse.

You want to know what a mujra is? Watch this:

Isse kehte hain mujra.

What Kareena 'Thu' Kapoor is trying to do in the first video can not even be classified as an item song. Although it is being promoted that way. A certain idiotic / biased / paid off (take your pick) section of the media is insisting that it (Dil Mera Muft Ka) is an amazing mujra item song.

If you want to know what an item song is, watch this:

THAT is an ITEM song.

Criticising / blaming ONLY Kareena Kapoor would be unfair. Not everyone is born with acting skills (or dancing skills or looks). Just in case the previous statement wasn't clear enough – What I intended to highlight was - Kareena Kapoor wasn't gifted with looks or talent.

The idiots casting her in films are to be blamed and should be penalised for subjecting the audience to such torture.

Where are those human rights protests when you need them!?

AutoCorrect Causing Even More Problems

"

Texting error leads to lockdowns at West Hall middle, high schools

Message should have said "gunna" as in "going to" but changed to "gunman"

The text, saying "gunman be at west hall today," was received and reported to police around 11:30 a.m. But after police tracked the number, they learned the auto correct feature on the new cellphone changed "gunna" to "gunman."

The message being sent to the wrong number added to the confusion.

And yet, there are people who insist that DamnYouAutoCorrect messages are fake.

Porngate: Committee Questions Channel Representative

"

The four-member panel reportedly posed a series of questions to the channel representative during the in-camera proceedings. The questions reportedly pertained to whether the media was right in having telecast the unparliamentary visuals. The media representative's replies were not known.

Link

This is the committee's concern?!? What exactly is this committee trying to investigate?

Or is the committee suggesting that the TV Channel should have blackmailed the members instead of airing the footage?
