Natural selection?

Natural selection seems more complicated for the human species, even if one if born with a birth defect, we do possess the tools to overcome it.

Tool usage certainly increases the complexity of our survivability exponentially.

Okay, the previous sentence was a little weird.

Even a visible defect like an extra finger or lack of facial symmetry doesn't really prevent a person from being an alpha male of a group. Thats something i still need to understand.

Does natural selection even matter for the human species anymore?

The question that sometimes drives me hazy,
Am I, or the others crazy?

Creepy Saturday!

Ahh..Saturday..Its Finally here.
I'm in the mood for some ghost stories so here goes...

A few years ago, a father and a mother needed a break, so they headed out for a night on the town and called their most trusted babysitter.
When the babysitter arrived, the two children were already fast asleep in bed. The babysitter just got to sit around and make sure everything was okay with the children.
Later that night, the babysitter called the parents and asked them if she could make some food.
''Of course'', the parents said. The babysitter also had one final request...

She asked if she could cover the clown statue in the corner of the bedroom with a blanket or cloth because it freaked her out.

The phone line was silent for a moment, and the father said,
"Take the children and get out of the house... we will call the police.
We do not have a clown statue."

Brain Music

Have you ever been conscious in the half asleep-half awake stage?
When you know you're dreaming, but not yet asleep?
It happens occasionally when you're exhausted or if you become conscious of it involuntarily...
But anyway, I've noticed that in that stage, you can hear some of the most complicated and beautiful music you have ever heard.

Mine's mostly guitar music with some electronic sounds too...
Its wierdly awesome.

Manchester United News

Excerpt from united's homepage.

Wayne Rooney will take whatever Friday's Champions 
League draw throws at United - Barcelona included - after helping the Reds to reach the quarter-finals.

When asked if he wanted to avoid Barcelona in the last eight, Wayne replied: "No, if you're going to win this tournament, you've got to be prepared to play anyone and beat them. Whoever we get, we'll be confident we can win."

Looks like Rooney is ready for whatever the Champions League throws at him.


On the other hand...Fergie got a 5 match ban.

The old man was really holding the club together despite the series of losses.

But with Fabio and Rafael bringing back the *magic* in the game, along with Rooney's and Chicharito's form...its going to be an interesting 5 matches in the league.

Why i would never want to be Sachin

I don't just think most of you are cricketers or follow cricket in any form, i myself am not too fond of cricket but this is an article which just HAS to be read...

Remember when you failed an examination. How many people recall that, your class, friends, relatives? You failed to make it to the IITs or IIMs. Who remembers. How many times have you had the feeling of being the best in your class, school , university, state….., you failed to get a visa stamped this quarter…, you missed a promotion this year…, how did it feel when your dad told you in your early twenties that you are good for nothing…..and now your boss tell you the same...

You keep introspecting and go into a shell when people most of whom don’t matter a dime in your life criticize you, back bite you, make fun of you. You are left sad and shattered and you cry when your own kin scoffs at you. You say I am feeling low today. It takes a lot from us to come out of these everyday situations and move on. A lot??? really?

Now here’s a man standing on the third man boundary in the last over of a world cup match. The bowler just has to bowl sensibly to win this game. What the man at the boundary sees is 4 rank bad bowls bowled without any sense of focus, planning or regret. India loses, yet again in those circumstances when he has done just about everything right.

He does not cry. Does not show any emotion. Just keeps his head down and leaves the field. He has seen these failures for 22 years now. And not just his class, relatives, friends but the whole world has seen these failures. We are too immature to even imagine what goes on in that mind and heart of his. That’s why I would never want to be Sachin.

True, he has single handedly lifted the mood of the entire nation umpteen number of times. He has been an inspiration to rise above our mediocrity. Nobody who has ever lifted the willow even comes close to this man’s genius. His dedication and metal strength is unparalleled. This is specially for those people who would have made fun of him again last night when India lost. They are people who are mediocre in their own lives. Who just scoff at others to create cheap fun. Who have lived in a small hole throughout their lives and thought they have seen the oceans.

Think about the man himself. He is 37 years of age. He has been playing almost non stop for 22 years. The way he was running and diving around the field last night would have put 22 year olds to shame. The way he played the best opening quickies in the world was breathtaking. He just keeps getting better which is by the way humanly impossible. Its not for nothing that people call him GOD.

But still I don’t want to be in those shoes. We struggle in keeping our monotonous lives straight, lives which affect a limited number of people. Imagine what would be the magnitude of the inner struggle for him, pain both mental and physical, tears that have frozen with time, knees and ankles and every other joint in the body that is either bandaged or needs to be attended to every night, eyes that don’t sleep before a big game, bats that have scored 99 international tons and still see expectations from a billion people.

And he just converts those expectations into reality. We watch in awe, feel privileged.

Well I think its time that his team realizes that enough is enough. They have an obligation, not towards their country alone but towards sachin. They need to win this one for him. Stay assured that he himself will still deliver and leave no stone unturned to make sure India wins this cup.

This is not just a game, and he is not just a sportsman. Its much more than this. Words fail here.....


The original article i got linked to,  said the author was Harsha Bhogle...
I tried googling it couldn't find any real reference to Harsha .

My guess: Its a fan or a letter to the editor, But its certainly worth a read.

I'm not christian or religious in any way, but i think its safe to say that this line of thought isn't very 'humane' and certainly isn't preached in any religion.

Spent 7 hours of a Sunday working on a robot...Never felt more like a
You know whats more awesome than an intelligent robot?
The goddamn Japanese.

A freaking 8.9 quake rocks their country and to the best of my knowledge, they haven't asked the world for any sort of financial aid or a single drop of blood from the Red Cross...

And seeing some Americans calling this payback and karma for Pearl really disturbing.

I'm not generally a moral person and believe nothing is ever black or white..more like different shades of gray,
but i just dont see the logic of calling this karma...I just dont see the twisted logic that  innocent people that weren't even involved in a war that's a generation old should be punished for a military decision in which they were in no way involved.
