I am a WEREWOLF

I want to compose and sing this song, ” I can feel it my fingers..I can feel it in my toes…Halloween is all around me..and so the feeling grows!!” But then I want my costumes to do the scaring part this Halloween and not bring my singing talents to that use. Last time I sang something, all the mice of Hamelin jumped of cliff. Oh well…when the children incident took place..I was not in town…he must have been that Pied Piper.

Anyways, Blogthings had this small quiz that tells you what kind of monster you are. Here are the results for me:


You Are a Werewolf


You’re unpredictable, moody, and downright freaky.
You seem sweet and harmless, until you snap. Then you’re a total monster.
Very few people can predict if you’re going to be Dr. Jekyll or Mr. Hyde.
But for you, all your transformations seem perfectly natural.
Your greatest power: Your ability to tap into nature

Your greatest weakness: Lack of self control

You play well with: Vampires

What Kind of Monster Are You?

I so wanted to be Werewolf before I took the quiz..and BINGO!!!….it was like Sorting Hat listening to me!!!

Jeff Dunham and Walter for President

I was just surfing through the blogosphere, when I found a video of Jeff Dunham‘s show. The guy is a ventriloquist and all his characters are very very funny. See a compilation of jokes from his shows in video below:

Jeff Dunham recently came up with a DVD of his shows titled Jeff Dunham: Arguing with Myself . The DVD went on to become one of the highest selling comedy titles. A quick peek at his shows will tell you the reason. The humor in his shows is fresh and specially when it comes through the mouth of those 3 feet figures, it sounds more funny. And yeah by the way, one of his characters Walter, the grumpy old man is running for president. Watch out for yourself.

Halloween: Animal and Plant Ghosts!!!

So Halloween spirit has got on to this blog too!!!….Well I was just wondering: why dont we have any hauntings by ghosts of animals, plants, Fungi, bacteria, viruses(well we can’t see most of them anyways). A quick check on net told me that there are instances when people have seen or felt the touch of their dead pets. But no story where a cat or dog or deer that died abrubtly in a accident comes back as an apparition to take revenge. I mean in that case, you would have so many deer ghosts (not dear ghosts!!) running behind every car on the highway. And Pennsylvania would be most deer haunted place.

Ok, so couple of questions for you guys to reflect on this Halloween:

1) Why don’t we have animal or plant ghosts?

2) If yes, we do have animal ghosts, they do they haunt only animals of same species. I mean is there any Code of Conduct or something!!!

3) Are plant ghosts motile?…Common they need some change too!! Please Please let them move after they die!!

4)How do ghosts celebrate Halloween?!!…Do you want to see a Real ghost Halloween Party?!!

Man on the Moon – Intro

This is one of my favorite movie intro!! The movie is brilliant too!!..As always Jim Carey rocks!! This time as Andy Kaufman in this movie which is based on life of that eccentric funnyman. Watch the video as Jim Carey plays the famous Foreign Man character.

James Watson Absurdity

I named my blog after one of the two strands of DNA but when the co-founder of that double helical structure, Dr. James Watson makes such racist comments, then I have to write this blog condemning those comments. For all those who don’t know what happened here is the story.

Dr. James Watson, Nobel laureate(1962), was supposed to give a presentation at London Science Museum, where he made this comments to The Sunday Times about African prospects:

“all our social policies are based on the fact that their intelligence is the same as ours – whereas all the testing says not really”

He went on to add:

“people who have to deal with black employees find this is not true”

Well as expected, this led to wide spread condemnation from scientific community and Dr. Watson’s talk at Science Museum was cancelled.

Coming from a person who is in a profession that is expected to work for benefit of people (a point which is itself debatable in present world), these comments defy all the norms of scientific behavior. I believe this incident calls for more serious actions on Dr. Watson. You can say that “more awards come with more responsibility”. So if one wins a Nobel Prize then he can’t be allowed to make such absurd comments and then mask them as a scientific fact when we all know that there is no scientific basis to that statement.

To summarize I stand with another great scientist Dr. Craig Venter’s comments on the issue:

 

“Skin colour as a surrogate for race is a social concept not a scientific one, There is no basis in scientific fact or in the human genetic code for the notion that skin colour will be predictive of intelligence”

A prank in need is prank indeed!!!

A man grows up to become what he is taught in childhood. So its not my mistake that I am like this!! This is what I was taught:

A prank in need is prank indeed!!!

After a prank comes a calm!!! (that’s when you should run.)

A prank in time saves none.

A bad prank always turns up.

All work and no prank makes Bhuru a dull boy.

A prank a day keeps the doctor away.

Better die a prankster than with shame.

Prank begins at home.

Prank is prank.

Prank killed the cat and the mouse and the dog and the…….

Prank is the father of good fortune.

Don’t play all your pranks on one person.

Fear of pranks is worse than prank itself.

Try this one!!

Stop the next sane looking middle aged man you see walking and say, “Excuse me Sir!!, Can you please help me with directions to this weird place”.

When he says “Yes”, take out that inflatable globe from your pocket. Start blowing it up (If u want to have more fun, ask for his help too in inflating that globe). Once completely done, put your finger on Antarctica and repeat your earlier question, “Can you please help me with directions to this weird place.I heard they have those weird creatures there called pigloo!!!”

And yeah if you ever try this one, do tell me the look on person’s face if you survive the aftermath!!

Madness is never that far away!!!

“Madness is never that far away, it is as close as saying ‘YES’ to that wrong impulse” –Jim Carey

Like everybody else, I get those weird wrong impulses too. Saying ‘No’ keeps me alive and out of the that category of ‘absolutely insane’ people!! But then they keep coming back every now and then. Listed below are some of those weird impulses of mine:

1. Jump my Jeep Cherokee from the top floor of that parking deck.

2. Make a U-turn at speeds of 80+mph.

3. Kick that automatic back door in the bus while it moves.

4. Throw a stone at that Red and Blue flashing light (you know which one!!) and break exactly and exclusively the middle one.

5. At Walmart, shake that whole shelf which houses the glassware.

6. When everybody is walking slowly, start running all of a sudden and shout, “The sky is falling!!!!”.

7. Throw bucket at somebody’s door at odd hour of night and when he comes out, shout at him and say,” God did not make night for sleeping”.

8. Stand up in the midst of that early morning Monday class and shout, “Get up!!”. When everybody turns towards, calmly say,”Oh!! I was talking to myself”.

9. Walk up to that person in a suit and say, ” Either be the President or else become a Hippopotamus”.

10. Tell that extremely fat guy that,” You are so fat that you have your own gravitational field”. (heard that on TV and so want to try it after that!!)

So now you know why I have never tried any one of them and will continue to curb those impulses. Well to have a much better idea about those impulses, watch the video that was inspiration behind this post.
