laloo is poor, jayakrishnan killed himself..

It is a tragedy that Indian judicial system in the recent past have shocked us again and gain by leeting people like Laloo and Rabri ( whom every one knows ,have amassed wealth by serving people in the "socialist "way) in the disproportionate assets case.... It is absolute confusion to me that the people who murdered a teacher( Jayakrishnan Master of Kannur......) in front of the a full class of his school students.....( some of them are still to come out that shock) are set free on flimsy grounds.....
Belief in the judiciary stands compromised. We do not know the inner reasons why he was murdered...... Who murdered him......The RSS vs CPM tussle is as usual is getting murkier......and the courts seems to be fanning the "eye for an eye and teeth for teeth" fire..

A Manu sharma (Jessica lal fame) seems to be an exception, but exceptions rarely makes rules .....

Rule of law seems to be a mirage..!!

Just go on bloody will never be able to touch it...

laws of confusion...

LAW OF TELEPHONE: When you dial a wrong number, you never get an engaged one.

LAW OF MECHANICAL REPAIR: After your hands become coated with grease, your nose will begin to itch.

LAW OF THE WORKSHOP: Any tool, when dropped, will roll to the least accessible corner.

LAW OF THE ALIBI: If you tell the boss you were late for work because youhad a flat tire, the next morning you will have a flat tire.

BATH THEOREM: When the body is immersed in water, the telephone rings.

LAW OF ENCOUNTERS: The probability of meeting someone you know increases when you are with someone you don't want to be seen with.

LAW OF THE RESULT: When you try to prove to someone that a machine won't work, it will!

LAW OF BIOMECHANICS: The severity of the itch is inversely proportional to the reach.

THEATRE RULE: People with the seats at the furthest from the aisle arrive last.

LAW OF COFFEE: As soon as you sit down for a cup of hot coffee, your boss will ask you to do something which will last until the coffee is cold.

“Hi honey. This is Daddy. Is Mummy near the phone?”
“No Daddy. She’s upstairs in the bedroom with Uncle Paul.”
After a brief pause, Daddy says, “But honey, you haven’t got an Uncle Paul.”
“Oh yes I do, and he’s upstairs in the room with Mummy, right now.”
Brief Pause.
“Uh, okay then, this is what I want you to do. Put the phone down on the table, run upstairs and knock on the bedroom door and shout to Mummy that Daddy’s car just pulled into the driveway.”
“Okay Daddy, just a minute.”
A few minutes later, the little girl comes back to the phone.
“I did it Daddy.”
“And what happened honey?” he asked.
“Well, Mummy got all scared, jumped out of bed with no clothes on and ran around screaming.
Then she tripped over the rug, hit her head on the dresser and now she isn’t moving at all!”
“Oh my God! What about your Uncle Paul?”
“He jumped out of the bed with no clothes on, too. He was all scared and he jumped out of the back window and into the swimming pool. But I guess he didn’t know that you took out the water last week to clean it. He hit the bottom of the pool and I think he’s dead.”
***Long Pause***
***Longer Pause***
***Even Longer Pause***
Then Daddy says, “Swimming pool? …Is this 3364-6484?

be hygienic and get disease..confusing?

too much of hygiene results in diseases...

A comparison of rats living in the wild and the lab lends support to the idea that an overly hygienic environment can lead to allergies and autoimmune diseases.
According to the "hygiene hypothesis," exposure early in life to infections from household dust, germy siblings or surfaces may reduce the risk of developing disease in adulthood.
William Parker, a professor of experimental surgery at Duke University in Durham, N.C., and his team compared lab rodents to more than 50 rats and mice captured and killed in cities and farms.
"Laboratory rodents live in a virtually germ- and parasite-free environment, and they receive extensive medical care — conditions that are comparable to what humans living in Westernized, hygienic societies experience," Parker said in a release.
"On the other hand, rodents living in the wild are exposed to a wide variety of microbes and parasites, much like humans living in societies without modern health care and where hygiene is harder to maintain."

Why Im so confused?

When God passed out brains,
I thought he said trains,
and I missed mine.

When God passed out looks,
I thought He said books,
and I didn't want any.

When God passed out ears,
I thought He said beers,
and I asked for two long ones.

When God passed out legs,
I thought He said pegs,
and I asked for two skinny ones.

When God passed out noses,
I thought He said roses,
and I asked for a big red one.

When God passed out heads,
I thought He said beds,
and I asked for a big soft one.

God am I a mess?

and now a mega sperm...

A recent study by co-authors -Bjork and SU biology associate professor Scott Pitnick, titled “Intensity of sexual selection along the anisogamy-isogamy continuum,” will be published in the June 8 issue of Nature. In the article, Bjork and Pitnick discuss a paradox they have discovered within the foundations of sexual selection theory as it relates to the sperm and egg production of Drosophila (fruit flies).
Previous work in the Pitnick lab has shown that post-copulatory sexual selection on males (the sperm competition that takes place after females mate with more than one male) can lead to decreased sperm quantities by favoring the production of larger sperm. In other words, their production moves toward a “quality, not quantity” mode, because female fruit flies have evolved so that longer sperm have a greater chance of successfully fertilizing eggs.
Successful fertilization is important, since individuals that fail to pass their genes on to the next generation are at an evolutionary dead end. This leads to the “big sperm paradox” because the idea that postcopulatory sexual selection could favor the evolution of giant sperm clashes with traditional sexual selection theory, which predicts that the most successful sperm competitors will be the males that produce many, tiny sperm. As males evolve to produce larger—and therefore fewer—sperm, eggs become less rare, and sexual selection should weaken, according to theory.

The term “isogamy” refers to the state at which males and females have equal investment per gamete (sex cell) when producing sperm and eggs. In a truly isogamous population, each sperm and each egg would have a chance to participate in a successful fertilization. In such a population, sexual selection would be extremely weak, as there would be little or no competition among males to fertilize eggs. more on this confusing story here

Penis and the pain...

It seems this small organ which God ,obviously didnt think as so sacred to keep it inside ,protected and safe like.... say the Heart or the Lungs, is taking over in terms of human obsession with it...It is penis enlargement ads everywhere, (promising Elephant size and Blue whale size)and fools flocking to hospitals and getting into trauma is reports and useless studies and statistics like this one which makes men wriggle in discomfort and cruise for solutions which does not exist...

arent there bigger .....oops..better things to be worried about..?

It is confusing....

good morning..have a laugh!

Eat,drink and be merry.Trrow we may die !

Eat drink and die happily... seems to be the motto of the 'eating legend' Rappayi who was also called as theetta rappayi..Theetta in malayalam ( my mother toungue) is 'eating' and Rappayi literally lived up to the title which he ate and ate to earn and live worthy of it until he passed away last day out of acute diabetes and associated problems.....

Rappayi (Seen here in the left with another miracle-Hira Ratan Manek, who has reportedly survived on liquid nourishment and sunlight up to 420 days ) tales are as popular as fables of oesop and the likes....He was picturised as a monster...someone whoes apetite could never be satiated and hence demonic ......Once he had a tryst with a hotelier who had an- all -you can eat menu where Rappayi gulped with ease,three buckets full of rice, one bucket of fish curry and 10 kg cooked meat -- in no time. Finally, law-enforcers had to be called in to end his sumptuous feast and the hotelier has stopped the buffet menu ever since.A regular at eating competitions, he ate 700 idilis in one sitting in Kasargod and gobbled up 10 kg halwa in 10 minutes in Thalasserry, records are aplenty. His story attracted global media attention and some international magazines covered his story.Another one says that he had three buckets of payasam after having gulped about 400 idilis...and as if it was not enough another one legend says that he had 9 jackfruits once and at the end of it asked whether the seeds could be fried in cocunut oil...

Kizhakkumpattukara Painadan Veettil Rappayi alias 'Theetta Rappayi' who made Guinness record by eating is no more now, but probably the hypothalamus malfunction which made him almost a legend should be talked about rather than the man who made hoteliers in his town run for cover...

Until then we shall remain confused...

Plight of the world!!!

And we were told that there is something by the name UN the WHO and the UNICEF.... and a hell lot of money going into funding all this..I am confused...!!!
