Willie Nelson Busted for Marijuana

Willie Nelson is synonymous with marijuana. Remember his appearance (and Snoop Dogg) in Half Baked? Him getting busted for it is the equivalent of Kim Jon-il getting busted for dictatorship, Bush being busted for conspiracy, Jenna Jameson getting busted for nudity, etc.

How Did You See Zidane?

I am shamelessly copying the following images from The Register. These are different versions of how people saw the whole Zidane incident, these show how the Italians and French saw it. Visit The Register for more. Also on YouTube there are loads of Mortal Kombat like edits with special effects, and even a short movie […]

Hello Digg!

An old story on this blog made its way to Digg’s front page today! More than 300 Diggs so far. This would be a high traffic week.

What is Your “Fan” Type?

Basically there are two types. The winner type and the sympathizer type. I am the latter. When I was 7 years old, I remember being a New Radiant fan. That was because Victory won the cup the previous year, and I was very, err, “concerned” about the fact that victory made it to the finals. […]

Geek vs Nerd

How would you differentiate between a geek and a nerd? The geeks and nerds themselves do not agree with most definitions, for some obvious reasons, and some say that the dictionaries are wrong.

A person regarded as foolish, inept or clumsy
A person who is single-minded or accomplished in scientific or technical pursuits but is felt to […]

World’s Most Expensive Coffee: Kopi Luwak

Kopi Luwak is Indonesian. “Kopi” means coffee and “Luwak” is the indonesian word for civets, a mongoose like animal that dwells in tropical forests. What makes Kopi Luwak unique is becuase these coffee beans must first pass through a civet’s digestive system. Kopi Luwak is said to be of better quality than the similar Ethiopian […]

The Formula for Effective Humor

Some months ago, a scientist named Igor Krishtafovich claimed that he had discovered the formula for effective humor.
Humor Effectiveness = P x C/T + M

P = personal involvement
C = complexity of the joke
T = time taken to solve the joke
M = background mood

When you think about it, this really makes sense. The scientist implied that […]

No Phone Day

I remember we used to have a ‘walking day’ every year, motor vehicles were not permitted on the streets. It was always a quiet, slow and a very calm day. For some reason we no longer have that day, probably because it wasn’t good for business.
Now talk about phones. Man. I get a lot of […]

Happy New Year

Wish you all a happy 2006…


One word, if it is a real word, says it all.

Major Geographical Reshuffle

This is a comment I made on a blog. Somebody else also went throught the trouble of making another comment using my nick on a previous post on the same blog. Erm. Flamewars are so, 90’s?

Dear animals and plants living on planet Earth,
This is to inform you that the entire Australian continent has been moved […]


Mappu is safe. So am I. Shit!

The True Furqan, The Fake Quran

I got a forwared email warning about a fake version of the Quran being distributed to some schools in the West. It is called the True Furqan. So, when you get something like this what do you do? Google it of course.
So there indeed is a rewritten Quran mockery being handed around. It is available […]

World Usability Day

Today is the World Usability Day. Today is the day for people who asked the questions, “Why doesn’t this work better? Why can’t they make this is easier?” BBC has run a survey and according to the results, the worst candidate is DVD package wrapping, and the best is, obviously, the iPod.
I would agree on […]

Electrified and Numb

The end.


Back home, from home. A first time visit to my birthplace.

Wide Impact - Chaos Cloud

If you thought that the movies Deep Impact and Armageddon were everything about mega destructive events, you are wrong. How about something that could wipe out the entire solar system, and yes including the sun? And how about this thing existing in today’s reality and not in some movie?
On 6th April this year, Nasa’s Chandra […]


Still alive.

Why Smart People Defend Bad Ideas

It is not everyday that I come across interesting pieces like this one. It goes like
If you learn a few tricks of logic and debate, you can refute the obvious, and defend the ridiculous. If the people you’re arguing with aren’t as comfortable in the tactics of argument, or aren’t as arrogant as you are, […]

Stone Thrower

Somebody is very upset today, apparently over this. On May 12th, somebody also wrote on his journal :
Yessssssss. Finally, after 9 submissions slashdot accepted me. woo hooo.
