Another cool site...

If you are in marketing or in a job which has you making PPTs, then you must check out this site called SlideShare.If you don't know what a PPT is, then don't even bother...

Ain't this cool...?

I signed up for this cool service from Snap.That's what is responsible for those tiny speech bubble like icons scattered all over. Just try hovering your mouse over one of those.... Ain't it cool?

Wierdest ad .......ever

It would help if you can read the title of the blog in the Comic Book Guy's (from The Simpsons) accent.

Anyway, I noticed this very..very weird hoarding (that's a bill board for you yankee)... Its on the way to my office and close to my home, and is for a brand of chicken. Couldn't help but take a pic of it, cauz otherwise you wouldn't believe me.

Wierd part: Not that I have to point this out to you, That guy is actually proposing to the girl with a chicken drumstick.

Wierder part: She is completely taken by this. Just look at her... she is already picturing the wedding ring with the huge solitaire Chicken McNugget.

Years later, her grand kids will discover a dusty shoe-box with the remains of a chicken bone and a ring with nothing on it (the ants would have got the McNugget just in case she didn't nibble on it every once in a while.)

Have you seen a weirder ad?

NISHABD - 01. Roza...

Saw Nishabd over the weekend. Right now I would say it is Ram Gopal Varma's best ever. You read that right. I am going to stick my neck out and say this. Yes, its better than Satya, better than even Kshana Kshanam. And if your nostrils are flaring, wait a bit.

This is Amitabh's best performance...ever...

I am not saying it's a very entertaining movie. And my golden rule for judging a movie is based on how entertaining it is. But this time, the sheer brilliance of the performance kept me glued to my seat.

Take it from me, watch the movie. And don't be one of those morons who think that director's and actor's endorse whatever they show.

The next logical step

I was reading this article that said that scientists have discovered some chimps in Africa which are now using spears to hunt other animals. It seems to me that we aimed our huge dish antennas outwards looking for intelligent life forms in other galaxies, and overlooked the chance that some other species might evolve into so called intelligent creatures. I am not exactly sure on what came after what, but needless to say we can expect chimps to discover fire, invent the wheel and sliced bread in the coming years.

The UN will want to step in, and a new organization will be formed for helping the chimps evolve faster by giving them technology. The chimps will return the favour by flinging dung at the scientists.Pretty soon they would be up to speed and downloading primate porn off the internet.

The chimps will move into cities and merge with human societies. Its logical that they would want political representation. I predict that the first chimp political party and will win the popular vote, mainly from humans because let's face it, those chimps are darned cute...

They would also be subject to racial (what's the right word???) discrimination and we will have legislation which ensures equal opportunity for all chimps. Don't be surprised if you end up working with them. I am not.
