Adventure 14

Random rants

Let's start with some opening music for once...

Here is my list of great copycats. The names in parentheses are the originals. The order has no particular significance apart from the sequence in which i recalled them.

1. Kaavya Viswanathan (Megan Mcafferty)
2. Ravindra Pushpakumara (Waqar Younis)

Shit! Can't remember any more!!!

This is for all you intellectual souls who love bashing Bongs.

My new motto is "It's now or never". Thanks to TVS Apache...

Who said nutty guys walk around stoned in art galleries and comic book stores wearing expensive khadi kurtas or smash guitars on stage accompanied psychedelic lights? Some of them just patrol the seas...

If I could get one person chucked out of the Indian team, it would definitely be Sreesanth. Here are two reasons why:
Reason 1
Reason 2

I thought I had seen all types of geeks...till I saw this! Incidentally, Adam Logan is the World Scrabble Champion 2005.

Talking of Scrabble, Chinedu Okwelogu (Sidespin) has brilliantly responded to a ridiculous announcement by Yahoo!

Dear YAHOO User,

Because of the sudden rush of people signing up to
YAHOO, it has come to our attention that we are vastly
running out of resources. So, within a month's
time,anyone who does not receive this email with the
exact subject heading,will be deleted off our server.
Please forward this email so that we know you are
still using this account.

Since when has it been punishable not to receive an
e-mail? And what if I perfectly legitimately use my
box once in two months?

We want to find out which users are actually using
their YAHOO accounts. So if you are using your
account, please pass this e-mail to every YAHOO user
that you can and IF YOU DO NOT PASS this letter to
anyone we will delete your account.

YAHOO Admin. Dept.

Does this obligation also apply to government
ministries, hospitals, and military establishments?
Not to mention Upper and Lower Houses of Assembly?!!!!
Also, am I correct to infer that 'Hotmail' subscribers
are too cold and frigid to enjoy this joke?

Our YAHOO system is getting to crowded!! We need you
to forward this to at least 20 people. I know this
seems like a large number, but we need to find out who
is really using their account.

Then stop admitting!! And why the interchange of the
1st person singular and plural pronouns? Or have you
forgotten whether you are one or more than one?

If you do not send this to at least 10 YAHOO members,
we will delete your account. Sorry for this

Why do you wield so much stick without carrot? Go and
study the tactics of absolute rulers of time past.
Meanwhile, make up your mind whether your minimum
mailspread requirement is 20 or 10 or 30 or 5.

Sincerely, Director of YAHOO Services

Is it the same you who started this missive that are
signing off? I sign off with as much sincerity, though
with less hermaphroditicalness.
