It's a Dog Eat Dog World

When ever I see Michael Moore movies, the most I like about them is their banner - "Dog Eat Dog Films"

Well, I'm not going to write about MM or his films or any dogs that eat dogs. I'm just writing about a forward I got from one of my teamies. <masala>It's about two friends in a jungle</masala>

Two friends went to a jungle. They saw a hungry lion there (Don't ask me how do I know that lion is hungry. It's looking at them just the way I look at KFC ;) Come on, just concentrate on the story) As soon as they saw the lion, they understood that they are going to be history. One of those guys took a pair of brand new Nike shoes and started wearing them. His friend was surprised at his action and asked him "Do you think that you can run faster than lion with those shoes on ?" This guy replied him "Dude, I need not run faster than the lion. I just need to run faster than you ! "

Ending is simple. The guy without running shoes has "Experienced Certainty" for having such a cool friend who carries a pair of Nike all the time ;)

Are you thinking about the moral of the story ? It's simple. It's a Dog Eat Dog World. Competition is ruthless and you've to look out for yourself.

Well yeah. I know what you guys are thinking. I never end my posts so normal. Yeah, I've something else in my mind. It's not about lion. It's not about shoes. Not even about forest. It's just about the friend. It's about every friend you leave behind and run when you are chased by a lion.

<philosophy>Life has a very simple rule. Rule is to turn little hard some times and very hard some other times. When it turns very hard on you, only person who can help you is a friend. Even though this is a Dog Eat Dog world. Even though the competition is ruthless. Just, don't make it a habit of running away leaving your friend behind when they need you. One day, when your another friend leaves you behind and runs faster, the guy whom you dint leave will certainly help you.</philosophy>

<utopia>Yes. I know that I shouldn't be using the terms "friend" and "running away" together because a "true" friend will never run away leaving you behind. Friends are here to run with you, not run faster than you ;)</utopia>

Einstein's Intelligence Quiz

This so-called quiz is written by Mr. Einstein and it seems that he stated that 98% of people in this world cannot solve the quiz

Here it goes.

  • There are 5 houses in 5 different colors
  • In each house lives a person with a different nationality
  • These 5 owners drink a certain type of beverage, smoke a certain brand of cigar, and keep a certain pet
  • No owners have the same pet, smoke the same brand of cigar or drink the same drink.

Here is the question. Who own's the fish If

  1. The Brit lives in a red house
  2. The Swede keeps dogs as pets
  3. The Dane drinks tea
  4. The green house is on the left of the white house
  5. The green house owner drinks coffee
  6. The person who smokes Pall Mall rears birds
  7. The owner of the yellow house smokes Dunhill
  8. The man living in the house right in the middle drinks milk

  12. The owner who smokes Blue Master drinks beer
  13. The German smokes Prince
  14. The Norwegian lives next to the blue house
  15. The man who smokes Blend has a neighbor who drinks water

I tried to solve the problem and yeah, I solved it  *genius-smile* .. wait, don't go, BTW, I used Excel and Google to solve it ;)

 

Hey, I've another puzzle for you. This is for you DJ !!

Why does INFY recruit people by giving them puzzles when they give both Excel and Google to their employees after recruiting ?

Answer : It expects it's employees to pass time by thinking about puzzles when they are on bench for 6 months ;)

Sicko %@#$%@#$^^

I watched latest documentary/movie of Michael Moore(MM), Sicko. It was not just a documentary on some topic. It's a very good try to Change His World and make it better for people living around him.

It presents only facts, which chill you to the bone. He could've been biased while showing stuff. But, certainly he dint show anything which is not a fact. The way he presented is very good. He presented American HMO in such a way that, any guy who has sensible emotional quotient would feel like beating the blue out of those companies for doing business on lives of people.

One scene goes like this. A guy while cutting wood with a saw, cuts two of his fingers and doctors give him a big offer. If you want your ring finger, we will do that for 12 grand, if your choice is your middle finger, we will do that for 60 grand.

But, at the end of the movie, MM did a mistake by making it public that he helped the guy who runs moorewatch.com when he needed money for his wife's operation. When he helped him anonymously, he should have stayed anonymous rather than making it public in his documentary. It shows that he wanted credit for the help and he wanted to make the guy who hates him to look like a loser.

As soon as the movie is over, I went to moorewatch.com and saw some topics there. Yeah, its clear that MM is biased but what the hell is owner of moorewatch, Mr. JimK trying to do ? One guy is trying to change the world by doing his part, and he is trying to stop the change by telling what ever he is showing is biased. Well, yeah, what ever MM is doing is for fame&money. But, people who are watching his movies are understanding what's going around them atleast 10% of what's going around (One point for MM) May be, they are understanding little more than facts (minus one for MM, that gives him zero) Whatever Mr. JimK is doing, only people who don't like MM would appreciate (So, no big deal, zero of JimK) When both of you guys are zeroes, what's the big deal of wasting MY TIME by letting me know that you are fighting to save the world ?? Real Sickos !!!

Me, Myself and an Artist

Hi. I always knew that I look bad. Well, bad enough to tell that I'm bad. But, certainly not F-Ugly. I really can't scare anyone with my looks (though, I can with my words) Karteek

Many of my friends tell me that I take very nice photos. Yeah, most of the photos I take look decent enough to be called as good photos. For most of my friends, I've take atleast one photo to be called as one of their best photos. But, the sad part is that I don't have any good photos of mine. I really can't expect my friends to click a good photo of mine. Come on, they can take a good photo only if I was little good for the photo. Being not so experienced in making ugly people look better, they never managed to take a pretty picture of mine.

After I bought a pretty new DSLR, I wanted to take a self portrait and I took some picture of mine. And I managed to take a picture which looked decent enough to blog. Well, the picture was good or atleast, it was good looking to my eyes. Then one of my friends commented that .. "Every one look ugly to their eyes" and my cousin commented .. "Every one is pretty for them self" .... Hmm .. which one should I believe ? Finally, I took both of their comments. I looked good in this photo. And I might be bad too. So, I edited the image so that it looks like a drawing. The one you saw is my final output. Hope, you will agree that I'm not an ugly creature :-D
