A nerdy-looking guy told his buddy that, for his 21st birthday, his roommate got him a sweater. He said, “I’d have preferred a screamer or a moaner, but she wasn’t bad!”

Neighborhood Effect

I recently came across a very interesting finding. How the fortunes of one person increases the spending of the entire neighborhood.
Isn’t it interesting that just to show off and for senseless vanity we often are driven to over spend and live beyond our means.


why i don’t take girls to camping

A guy and his blonde girlfriend went on a fishing trip. Renting all the equipment (rods, reels, waders, boat, even a cabin in the woods), they spent a fortune. They fished every day and never caught a thing. Finally, on the last day there, he caught a fish. Driving home, he said to his girlfriend, “Do you realize that catching one lousy fish cost us two thousand dollars?”
She replied, “Wow! Good thing we didn’t catch more!”

In a small town, a person decided to open up his Bar business, which
was right opposite to the Temple. The Temple & its congregation
started a campaign to block the Bar from opening with petitions and
prayed daily against his business.
Work progressed. However, when it was almost complete and was about to
open a few days later, a strong lightning struck the Bar and it was
burnt to the ground.
The temple folks were rather smug in their outlook after that, till
the Bar owner sued the Temple authorities on the grounds that the
Temple through its congregation & prayers was ultimately responsible
for the demise of his bar shop, either through direct or indirect
actions or means.
In its reply to the court, the temple vehemently denied all
responsibility or any connection that their prayers were reasons to
the bar shop’s demise. As the case made its way into court, the judge
looked over the paperwork at the hearing and commented:
“I don’t know how I’m going to decide this case, but it appears from
the paperwork, we have a bar owner who believes in the power of prayer
and we have an entire temple and its devotees that doesn’t.”

Couch Surfing

Recently I have been member of this wonderful group called Couch Surfing. The idea is simple, facilitate the hitch-hikers and low cost travelers in finding friendly locals who would be more than giving to spare a small corner for them.

You can also use it for meeting interesting people from around the world and since the group largely consists of people who love to socialize, its fund attending its meetings and outings. Just surf around, maybe you also like it.

on the lighter side, here is how one should never hitchhike.


12 deadly sins

Swaminathan S Anklesaria Aiyar has recently written a wonderful article listing out the 12 deadly sins Indians are committing and which will seriously jeopardize our future.



A city slicker was hiking through the backwoods when he came upon the smallest cabin he had ever seen. Intrigued, he knocked on the door. “Is anybody home?” he asked.
“Yep,” came a young voice through the door.
“Is your father there?” asked the city fella.
“Pa? Nope, he left before Ma came in.”
“Well, then, is your mother there?” persisted the city slicker.
“Ma? Nope, she left just before I got here.”
“But, are you never together as a family?”
“Not in here. This here’s our outhouse!”

outhouse is: “A small outbuilding with a bench having holes through which a user can defecate”



This wonderful article from seeking alpha tries to address the paradox that in spite of the fact that India has the best brains in the world, why do we lag behind in terms of finding innovative solutions to address Indian needs.
