Multiple Marriages

I read an interesting article by RSS spreading communal hatred and distrust among Indians. One of the major points it re-emphasized was that Muslim population was expanding because they are allowed to have multiple marriages.
As a proof they showed the census data proving that Muslims grew by an alarming 40% in the last decade. What it forgot to include was that in the last census, the population of J&K, and Assam (both Muslim predominant states) was not taken into account. Point is if your base data is faulty, then you cannot arrive at any conclusion.

My question is, how many of the Muslim friends you know actually have multiple wives? (Hardly 2-3percent have 2 wives and rarely you will find more than that. In fact which female would like to go in such a relationship?)
Even if they do have multiple wives, the reproducing capacity of a female does not change with monogamy/polygamy. On the contrary, having larger number of adults to feed induces liabilities and hence reduces the economic level of the members.
So in a traditional monogamous Hindu family having 2-3 children is common, it is highly absurd to even think of a Muslim male to support 5 wives and 10-15 offspring. I will be in fact welcome you if share if you have ever come across such an incident.

What RSS failed to comment about was the new Draupti like families that are emerging in UP, Haryana. Due to smaller lands ownership and falling male-female ratio 4-5 brothers are sharing single wife. Unlike polygamy, polyandry drastically increases the population. The female in such a relation is seen as a production line popping one baby after another.

Drop Dead

Six guys were playing poker when Smith loses $500 on a single hand, clutches his chest and drops dead at the table. Showing respect for their fallen comrade, the other five complete their playing time standing up. Roberts looks around and asks, “Now, who is going to tell the wife?” They draw straws. Rippington, who is always a loser, picks the short one. They tell him to be discreet, be gentle, don’t make a bad situation any worse than it is. “Gentlemen! Discreet? I’m the most discreet man you will ever meet. Discretion is my middle name, leave it to me.” Rippington walks over to the Smith house, knocks on the door, the wife answers, and asks what he wants. Rippington says, “Your husband just lost $500 playing cards.” She hollers, “TELL HIM TO DROP DEAD!” Rippington says, “I’ll tell him.

Gay Marriages

Some of the failed arguments against gay marriage were:

1) Being gay is not natural. Real Americans always reject unnatural things like eyeglasses, polyester, and air conditioning.

2) Gay marriage will encourage people to be gay, in the same way that hanging around tall people will make you tall.

3) Legalizing gay marriage will open the door to all kinds of crazy behavior. People may even wish to marry their pets because a dog has legal standing and can sign a marriage contract.

4) Straight marriage has been around a long time and hasn’t changed at all; women are still property, blacks still can’t marry whites, and divorce is still illegal.

5) Straight marriage will be less meaningful if gay marriage were allowed; the sanctity of Brittany Spears’ 55-hour just-for-fun marriage would be destroyed.

6) Straight marriages are valid because they produce children. Gay couples, infertile couples, and old people shouldn’t be allowed to marry because our orphanages aren’t full yet, and the world needs more children.

7) Obviously gay parents will raise gay children, since straight parents only raise straight children.

8) Gay marriage is not supported by religion. In a theocracy like ours, the values of one religion are imposed on the entire country. That’s why we have only one religion.

9) Children can never succeed without a male and a female role model at home. That’s why we as a society expressly forbid single parents to raise children.

10) Gay marriage will change the foundation of society; we could never adapt to new social norms. Just like we haven’t adapted to cars, the service-sector economy, or longer life spans

bathroom

Evan was so excited about his first day at his new school that within minutes he desperately had to go to the bathroom. He politely raised his hand, asked permission, and hurried out of the room. After five minutes he returned, more desperate than before and said, “I can’t find it.” The teacher drew a little map and sent him off again. Five minutes later, he was back again. “I still can’t find it!” This time, the teacher sent Little Johnny with him. Ten minutes later, they returned. The teacher asked, “Well, Little Johnny? Did you find it?” Little Johnny replied, “Yep. He just had his underwear on backwards!”

Effective Communication

What is Effective Communication?? Jack and Max are walking from religious service. Jack wonders whether it would be all right to smoke while praying. Max replies, “Why don’t you ask the Priest?” So Jack goes up to the Priest and asks, “Priest, may I smoke while I pray?” But the Priest says, “No, my son, you may not. That’s utter disrespect to our religion.” Jack goes back to his friend and tells him what the good Priest told him.

Max says, “I’m not surprised. You asked the wrong question. Let me try.” And so Max goes up to the Priest and asks, “Priest, may I pray while I smoke?” To which the Priest eagerly replies, “By all means, my son. By all means.”

Moral: The reply you get depends on the question you ask. For Example: Can I work on this project while I’m on vacation … !?

biggest ranch

A Texas Cattle Rancher and an Illinois Farmer were debating on who had the biggest spread of land. The Texas Cattle Rancher said, “I’ll tell ya what son, my ranch is so big that I can get in my pickup truck and start out at the western entrance to my ranch and drive straight east all dog-gone day and still not reach the eastern entrance to my ranch”. The Illinois Farmer scratched his head and spit out his chewing’ tobacco and replied, “Ya know……I used to have an old pickup truck just like that”.
