Been a long time since I posted something.. Here is something I found on the Internet.. Found it funny..

In case you needed further proof that the human race is doomed to stupidity, here are some actual label instructions on consumer goods:

On a Sears hairdryer -- Do not use while sleeping.
(Shoot, and that's the only time I have to work on my hair.)

On a bag of Fritos -- You could be a winner! No purchase necessary. Details inside.
(the shoplifter special)?

On a bar of Dial soap -- "Directions: Use like regular soap,"
(and that would be how???....)

On some Swanson frozen dinners -- "Serving suggestion: Defrost."
(but, it's "just" a suggestion).

On Tesco's Tiramisu dessert (printed on bottom) -- "Do not turn upside down."
(well...duh, a bit late, huh)!

On Marks & Spencer Bread Pudding -- "Product will be hot after heating."
(...and you thought????...)

On packaging for a Rowena iron -- "Do not iron clothes on body."
(but wouldn't this save me more time)?

On Boot's Children Cough Medicine -- "Do not drive a car or operate machinery after taking this medication."
(We could do a lot to reduce the rate of construction accidents if we could just get those 5-year-olds with head-colds off those forklifts.)

On Nytol Sleep Aid -- "Warning: May cause drowsiness."
(and...I'm taking this because???....)

On most brands of Christmas lights -- "For indoor or outdoor use only."
(as opposed to...what)?

On a Japanese food processor -- "Not to be used for the other use."
(now, somebody out there, help me on this. I'm a bit curious)

On Sainsbury's peanuts -- "Warning: contains nuts."
(talk about a news flash)

On an American Airlines packet of nuts -- "Instructions: Open packet, eat nuts."
(Step 3: maybe, Delta?)

On a child's Superman costume -- "Wearing of this garment does not enable you to fly."
(I don't blame the company. I blame the parents for this one.)

On a Swedish chainsaw -- "Do not attempt to stop chain with your hands or genitals."
(Oh my ..was there a lot of this happening somewhere?)

Will post something original soon... I HOPE..

When I crossed P.S.G College of Technology today and saw the whole place buzzing with activity, I realised - I'm missing college life rather too much!!! There can never be so much fun in life... I so wish I could re-live those 4 years sans mistakes and have more fun.. Sadly. Life never gives you a second chance.

"Best Friends" for life

There is no bigger curse than being the best friends for life with the one girl you love more than anyone else. Everytime she calls to crib about her boy friend, you know you could have been much better. You know you would have made her happy. You know you will never give her a chance for her to crib about lack of attention from her boy friend. But knowing all this, you also know that you will never be her boy friend, because.. .... You are her BEST FRIEND.. This is what I call suffering from "Good friends" syndrome.

A lot of poor guys end up being "good friends" with every girl they know. They can never express themselves because they know the answer that is in store "Hey. I have never thought of you like that.. You know???"

Yeah.. Of course I know.. That is why you will never know how much I love you.. You will never know what I'm missing.. You will never know how much I feel like crying everytime you call to crib about your arsehole of a boy friend. Yes... I know your boy friend is a bloody asshole, but I will never tell you that. Because, to you - he is more important than I'am. I will still tell you that its all gonna be fine. I'm the shoulder for you to cry on. I'm the moral support you need everytime you get dumped. I'm the guy who helps you solve assignments. I'm the guy you look up to when you are in trouble. I'm the "friend" who is always available. And I'm the guy who will always love you more than your boy friend does. But you will never know. You will never see, because you do not want to "spoil the beautiful relationship that we share".

But you know what? I will not complain. I will still listen to you when you need support. I would still tell you that life is gonna be awesome. Because.. I will always love you..

Caring for and being cared for!!!

In life, you care for a lot of people. A lot of people care for you. But it is PAIN if the person you care about the most doesn't even bother!!! Learn to live with it. I'm learning myself. Distancing is a good way of doing it. Live like the lotus leaf they say.

Lame Facebook Status Messages!!!

A few really dumb status messages I came across in the last few days:

"hey ladies..some of us were planning a ladies night out.. friday night.. liquid.. my place at say 9ish, some sierra , and then liquid.. hwz that sound.. respond to the wall post so i know who all are comin.. everyone welcome.."

Vineeth's comment on this: Wahh.. You seem to be having one hell of an awesome life. Enjoy. You are not at all desperate. You do not have to get a life.

"Needing a man is like needing a parachute. If he isn't there the first time you need him, chances are you won't be needing him again :D"

Vineeth's comment on this: Is that a grin? Hmm. Keep grinning. You will never have to need a guy :P

"Woke up at 6 A.M, took bath at 7, had breakfast at 8, went to a friend's place at 9, came back at 5 PM, had dinner at 7 and slept at 9"

Vineeth's comment on this: Ok.. So? Btw... What about when you took a dump? :P

"Won't be using facebook for another 2 months. Sorry guys and gals"

Vineeth's comment on this: Oh yeah buddy. Your absence from facebook is gonna cause violent earthquakes in the latin americas. (this friend, replied to all the comments that came in those 2 months, took about a million quizzes too :P)

Diary Entries!!!

A girl's diary entry:

He seemed very quiet today. I asked him if it was my fault. He was too upset and said NO. I told him I love him. He gave a fake smile and said "I know". I'm sure he thinks of someone else. I cried all night.

Guy's Diary:

Man U lost to Chelsea. Damn.

Moral of the story
: guys are simple.

This has probably been circulated widely over the net and SMS. I still smile every time I read it.

Women and sense of humour!!!

Been quite some time since I actually wrote something. The previous post was just a lift off from some website. Today I happened to have an enlightening conversation with one of my friends about women and their sense of humour. All the "jokes" I'm mentioning here happened in real life right in front of me.

"Joke 1" - a few years back

Girl1: Hey.. Watch your steps.. You might slip and fall..

Girl2: LOL.. Ha ha haaa...

Me: ?????????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!.. WTH!!!!

"Joke" 2 - a few months back

Girl3: Hey. How do you think he figured out how this paper clip works? (The 'he' here happens to be a geek)

Girl4: I know I know.. He must have written some codes!!!

Girl1: LOL.. Ha ha haaa...

Me: ???? Going mad!!!!

"Joke" 3 - a few days back
(the best so far)

Girl5: Hey. You know what. I always iron my pants only below the knee, coz till there its covered by the kurta!!!

Girl6: LOL!!! Ha ha haa......

Me: Give up!!!

Just found this somewhere in the net. Super funny!!!

"A woman has a close male friend. This means that he is probably interested in her, which is why he hangs around so much. She sees him strictly as a friend. This always starts out with, you're a great guy, but I don't like you in that way. This is roughly the equivalent for the guy of going to a job interview and the company saying, You have a great resume, you have all the qualifications we are looking for, but we're not going to hire you. We will, however, use your resume as the basis for comparison for all other applicants. But, we're going to hire somebody who is far less qualified and is probably an alcoholic. And if he doesn't work out, we'll hire somebody else, but still not you. In fact, we will never hire you. But we will call you from time to time to complain about the person that we hired."

If you liked this, you would also like THIS!!!
