Breast Implants, anyone?

So you are a psychopath...

You stalk your suspect for ages, you lie in wait in the shadows, you plot your moves.

The long anticipated time arrives and you close in on your prey.
*stab stab stab*

The deed is done. You clear the evidence. Remove the teeth (dental records you said?), chop off the fingers (fingerprints?? "ha ha") and pat yourself on your back for a job well done.

Few days later:
"You are under arrest for the murder of xyz. Anything you say can and will be used against you"

-Whaaattt?? How?? When??
-Ha ha, loser, you left vital clues for the police to find the identity of the victim and trace it back to you.
-Bbut, but, how did you find whose body it was??
-You think you are smart, but you are not that smart! You may have done everything, but you left the breasts.
-Yep. We traced the body from the seriel numbers on the implants of the victim.
*sound of jail door slamming shut*

Adapted from a true incident

Seems a boob job helps even after you die.

The melting of 1000 people

Ever felt like you were melting away? I have.

And as it happens when you browse, you see the one thing that makes you think “yes, that’s what I feel like”.

I had one of those a-ha moments today. I came across these pictures of an installation by WWF.

source : Theme

It had a thousand tiny ice people on the steps of Gendarmentmarkt square in Berlin. It was made by Brazilian artist Nele Azevedo. Really cool stuff. All the ice people melted away when the sun came up though :(

A fitting portrayal of the effect on our polar ice caps, don’t you think?

P.S. Read more on it. The installation was intended to do show that the sea levels rise more than 1m by 2100.

Word of mouth

About a month since I last posted... Well B-schools have their own schedules, and so far I've just been 'adjusting' :P I will post some things that happened here, but not now. This post is to share what I found today... About word-of-mouth topics. So here it goes...

Andy wrote this short and sweet article here: (reproduced)

"Your topics are what fuel you word of mouth. A great one isn’t a slogan or a generic brand message — it’s something simple that spreads easily among friends. And remember, if your topic works well in a traditional press release, it’s probably a bad one.

What to look for:

  • Emotional. People share things that make them happy — the funny, surprising, and remarkable elements of products and experiences.
  • Portable. A portable topic is something that can be slapped in a blog post, an e-mail signature, or a T-shirt. If it’s too complicated or needs explaining, nobody will repeat it.
  • Repeatable. If someone has to make an effort to remember what to say, they won’t say anything."

Ride with me

Feeling it move under me is the biggest high I have got in recent times :) It is faster, when I want it to be faster, slower when I want to go slow. When I push it, it murmurs approval. It responds to every touch! Ah, bliss!

Had I known driving a car would be so much fun, I’d have tried it eons ago…

Today was the third day of my ‘driving classes’ from Dad. Each lasting close to an hour. I was so elated to be driving that I did not even mind him trying to steer the vehicle in the 1st class and saying ‘Go slow, go slow!’ whenever we approached a car, bike, bump, person, dog.. oh you get the picture! So considering that today, he only did that twice: once when a group of guys did not move off the center of the road and the other when we were at an intersection and vehicles were approaching, I must have done ok. :D

But this is what elated me the most today. We were at Dining, a big hall at the beginning of our ‘village’, when I announced “Ok, let me try a U-turn”. Dad said ‘Ok, do it at the next streetlight’. I reached it and started turning. And then found it so much fun that I decided to complete the circle! What fun! And all Dad said was ‘That was a circle, not a U-turn’. Lol!

But I still have a long way to go (literally) before I get anywhere near ready to hit the traffic in this city. If I thought that people in Bangalore drove badly, Chennai is worse! But I sure am glad it is not Pune, because that is where I saw the worst… (‘Course take this with a pinch of salt as I haven’t travelled much. Yet.)

So here’s to learning to drive, cars and me getting my first one as soon as I repay all my debts. Cheers!
