A Picture is worth two and a half words…

While I am still suffering from Bloggers Block (also called “Who cares about what I write” Syndrome), I am thankful to my mobile phone and people who provide these wonderful photo opportunities…

While we are on the subject, check out this blog. A wonderful parody on twitter.

In the meantime here are the pictures.. I leave it up to you, oh “intelligent” reader to see the goof-ups.

What the **** moment from Airtel

11 Aug

I know operators are looking to increase efficiency. Sometimes however they can go overboard.

For the last several months they have been sending text messages reminding me that the bill is due (NOTE this starts much before the due date). I get at least 2 messages for every billing cycle. Its annoying because I have never defaulted and I dont need cute SMSs reminding me. But still its okay…
Yesterday was the so called “icing” on the cake..and the guy/department who thought about it should be “rewarded”.

I get a call and pick the phone up. Its a bloody “Automated Message” from Airtel reminding me that my bill is due in 2 days…so I hang up and the bloody thing calls again…

I have 2 SIMS attached to this account, another call went to that phone as well… I called the support center and told the kind lady that if I get another phone call, I will cancel my subscription.

An hour AFTER I talked to the support desk…another call…

What a dumb idea !!! Mobile number portability..where art thou?

The Japs – What will they think of next?

13 May

 

First it was the toilets now this?

Bra that grows rice developed in Japan. This has been done to get the women interested in agriculture. 

To Quote:

“Over the last year, young Japanese women have taken a tremendous interest in agriculture. We wanted other women to experience farming as well,” Triumph spokeswoman Yoshiko Masuda said.

“Home kits that allow people to grow their own rice are very popular online. We thought that it would be fun if a bra could give people the same experience,” said Mr Masuda.

Full Story Here.

Come to think of it, it could have been worse…they could have had palm trees…

Sania Mirza…Thank Goodness that this wedding is over… now the TV channels must find something else to do…someone else to interrogate..some other scandal to break.

Or maybe they can focus on real issues…now won’t that be a change??

For a fortnight we’ve been subject to reports, discussions,analysis etc on whos right, whos wrong, whos the husband, whats Sania’s ranking? etc

Even here Sania doesnt seem destined to get top ranking…apparently she will always be known as Biwi number 2.

On a final note…now that the wedding is done, ensure that Shoiab gets his passport back and he leaves (along with his entourage)…hope that they have a happy married life… IN DUBAI !!!!

On a parting note.. Nikhil always used to say that there were two headlines that were common with Sania Mirza:

1. Sania storms into 2nd Round

2. Sania crashes out of 2nd Round

Better luck this time…hopefully

Say that twice – And Fast !!!

Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateapokaiwhenuakitanatahu in New Zealand holds the record for the longest place name (okay say that twice).

It translates roughly as The summit where Tamatea, the man with the big knees, the climber of mountains, the land-swallower who travelled about, played his nose flute to his loved one. It has been listed in the Guinness World Records as one of the longest place names in the world. Must be tough having this for an address…

Thanks Ray Dixon for the post that set this process off.

IN OTHER NEWS

Its a country of a billion plus people and you cannot satisfy everyone. Apparently the boxers are pissed that they were not considered for the Republic Day awards….Come on guys.. its bronze…  I don’t want to put their achievements down… but then Gold is Gold…

I know the question that will follow is “How else do we encourage these sports?”… well maybe by providing better facilities.. and kicking out the morons who run those organizations?

In the meantime the USA is deducting 55 Million from aid given to Pakistan. I think they have now started to charge taxes on their aid money…either that or they realized that Zardari was billing them for the army’s (and his) laundry as well.

US authorities deducted the amount while releasing only $101 million out of Pakistan’s claim of $156 million for expenses incurred on the campaign against terrorism till April 2008, said Shaukat Tarin, Adviser to the Prime Minister on Finance.

I read somewhere that till now they have received $73 Billion in Aid. Wonder where all that money went…

..and whats with these two?

Dec 04 2008’s What the ****

4 Dec

The CM of Kerala seems to have multiple personalities.. the first one insults a Martyr, the second one denies it and now hes apologized……oops sorry I forgot, hes a politician…

His statements were so crass that the other politicians didnt support it..even politicians from his own party who normally defend everything the reds do…

There was a Communist Party MP who was at the Taj when the shooting happened… apparently he was having dinner there.. WTF.. isn’t it against party rules? or is it “Do as I say dont do as I do”…
Talking about politicians, notice how quiet they are.. they are probably waiting for the current storm to blow over before starting to make their “great” statements… Of course Lalloo of the Gobbar fame has issued one or two gems…

Now.. I am not too knowledgeable here…if India has proof against Pakistan.. WHY DONT WE GIVE IT TO THEM??? We keep saying we have proof after every terror attack…. am I missing something here?

Pakistani Foreign minister says India is not accusing Pak but elements inside Pak.. duhhhh !!!!

We get hit.. we scream and piss…Pak plays coy… US visits them.. Pak makes lots of mother promises.. US praises Pak and gives them a few billion, US leaves and then Pak thumbs their noses at us.. life back to normal… did anyone expect anything different????

Nov 25 – What the ****s

25 Nov

Feeling a bit silly so here goes…

Kept telling my new driver to keep his eyes on the road.. he kept telling me he was..and I insisted he wasnt.. later realized he was cross eyed…

The US apparently spied on Tony Blair and had his private conversations recorded … Heres some insider information…3 agents quit because of boredom…

Animals are becoming cricket coaches.. thats what I thought when I saw a headline saying
“Moles Named New Zealand Coach”.. of course I was wrong.

Lalloo.. he of the gobbar disposition compared Rahul Gandhi to Mahatma Gandhi..keep licking Lallooo… elections are getting closer. Hope Rabri aunty is helping out…

Someone at the office mentioned that Watermelons were more powerful than Viagara…I wonder if thats if you eat watermelon or someone drops a watermelon on your whatchamacallit.
