Thought Bubble # 17

Can a man be a particle and a wave at the same time? I think so. Here's my proof. To a celestial observer whose one second is equivalent to one human day, a man will appear like a listless vibrating molecule following a random path, often colliding with other molecules. The observer's point of view will be akin to time lapse sequences on a fast forward mode shot from the top. The celestial observer will see the man as a wave while a fellow man on earth will see the man as a particle.

I think it's about time the world switched to a 4-day week. We spend too much of energy on trivial work matters and too little on creative pursuits. The more we delink ourselves from bread and butter issues, the more our chances of creating something.

Mahinda Rajakapse takes over as Sri Lankan President. Rahul Dravid replaces Saurav Ganguly. Nitish Kumar unseats Laloo Prasad Yadav. Me thinks, some significant changes are being effected by destiny. Guys who bring a fresh approach for tackling vexed issues are being picked for top jobs. Gentlemen, I see exciting times ahead.

Can a man stay still when his world is spinning outta control? I just found out the answer. It seems the earth goes into a tizzy everyday, covering 1.6 million miles in outer space. And the mighty irony is, it doesn't affect us one bit.

Cigarette Anagrams: The Truth is Inside

This piece is dedicated to an old friend named Saby, who used to smoke at least 20 ciggies a day. He was smoked out in early 2005 by a vicious disease called throat cancer.

STATUTORY WARNING: The anagrams presented here are purely of trivia value. I cannot be held responsible if this information is used as propaganda material by anti-smoking and cancer care lobbies.

Chesterfield: De Chest Rifle.

Benson & Hedges: Bends & He's Gone.

Charminar: I, Harm Narc.
(Note: Narc. is a short form for narcotic)

Virginia Slims: Is Grim Sin Vial.

Chancellor: Charon Cell.
(Note: In greek mythology, Charon is the boatman who takes souls to hell)

John Players Special: Jay Helps Nail Corpse.

Rothmans: Harms not.
(Even the surgeon general will have a smirk after reading this)

India Kings: Aid Sinking.

Hamlet: Halt me.
(And they say Hamlet is a cigar called happiness)

Bristol: Rib Lost.

Mild Seven: Mend Lives.

Marlboro Lites: Am Obits Roller.
(Obits is the short form for obituaries)

If you uncover more such anagrams, feel free to add to this list.

It is my view that nature has started mimicking man. Just like we slog in the last few months to achieve annual targets, nature has started unleashing a belated death dance to meet some impossible milestones set by its unseen superiors.

A Quick Advertising Joke

Why is the Account Exective very prone to AIDS? And why will he never turn HIV Positive?
The AE gets screwed everyday, so he's AIDS prone. But since he always 'plays it safe' he'll never contract this deadly disease.

New Improved Democracy will be about the highest common denominator and not the lowest common denominator.
