All around


In The Telegraph today – “It's confirmed: It’s unsafe to drive and talk on phone”. I can imagine how it takes rocket science to work that out.

It's confirmed. The world is full of stupid people. Really REALLY stoopid people. Manoj Night Shyamalan, re-make The Sixth Sense. That line should be “I see stupid people.” (The down-side is that most days I wake up like Bruce Willis and realise that I’m one of them.)

The Andhra Government paid 11 khokhas to get Volswagen to invest in their state. Then it turns out they paid it to a fraud.

Further proof – the Salman Khan tapes. Everyone who knows him agrees that this guy has a heart of gold to go with his pecs of granite. Sadly enough, his brain seems to be made of the same stuff. (Granite, not gold.)

Which brings to mind a conversation in the gym some years ago. This unfairly gifted dude (handsome as the young Mithun Chakraborty, great bod, graduated from Yale, scholarship to Harvard) said that only a retard would drop the bar after a military press, I pointed out that some people might actually do it. His response was classic – “That’s what we call PEOPLE, right? Ree-tards!”

Terrible attitude. Egoistic. Snobbish. Disgusting. It doesn't even make us happy.

Who cares... I love it!

Are we becoming bad scamsters....why should a country which has in 1992 a Harshad Mehta scam, a Ketan Parekh in 2001, now in 2005 stoop low to a scam of only 11 khokhas !
imagine only 11kokhas is it realy worth the scam or is it a tip of a bigger iceberg!
i asked the Hon.Minister Mr.Botsa...he walked away from the interview saying : this was not a nice question I could ask respectable people!

Hmmm, rocket scientist… don’t talk and drive… seems somewhat apropos here in Florida where we have a pastime of watching the space shuttle to see if it is going to go up, and if it does if it will go up in flames. Maybe space travel would be more safe if they didn’t have to talk so much during launch and decent. Good thing we have those rocket scientists to figure stuff out for us stupid people (of which I could definitely be categorized).

you are from kolkata.....

Actually, it does take rocket science to figure it out. :-) Why is a phone conversation distracting while chatting to a passenger/carpool mate is not? Is it dangerous, when the person is dialing the number? Are there fewer accidents caused by hands free phones? Questions, questions...

HAHHAHAHAHAH @ the Andhra Govt,,, lol!!! * cant stop giggling*

Yes Salman needs a bra now.. at the rate at which he is going!

*furious* I am anti-idiots who go around using the word 'retards' as abuse. It is demeaning and disrespectful to people who have real mental problems. Am going to write about this. Hope you love that too.

J. Alfred Prufrock said...

Aekta, valid point.
Is 'moron' more acceptable? Or 'idiot'?
Sadly enough, all these terms have the same meaning.
What would be appropriate?

i always hated Sallu Mian.. now i got more reasons...

Heh Heh said...

@aekta: I dont believe *anybody* uses either "retard" or "retarded" in the context of mentally challenged or differently abled individuals any more. It is only used as a swear word now, much like idiot and moron.

Parii said...

JAP: Perhaps the name of the Mithun-lookalike would suffice?

FingeeK: There is a difference in 'foolishness' and 'mental retardation', please remember that. Those who use the word 'retard' as a swear word are doing so either out of insensitivity, intellectual pride, or in ignorance. Please correct them.
