That means you neha and u2 munnax.
Here is something to think about.

Another head hangs lowly, child is slowly taken
And the violence caused such silence
Who are we mistaken

But you see it's not me, it's not my family
In your head, in your head, they are fighting
With their tanks, and their bombs
And their bombs, and their guns
In your head, in your head they are cryin'
In your head, in your head, Zombie, Zombie
In your head, what's in your head Zombie

Another mother's breaking heart is taking over
When the violence causes silence
We must be mistaken
It's the same old theme since 1916
In your head, in your head they're still fightin'
With their tanks, and their bombs
And their bombs, and their guns
In your head, in your head they are dyin'

In your head, in your head, Zombie, Zombie
In your head, what's in your head Zombie

- Zombie

they're probably just all machines or something. i really hope the ending is simple as you people (the royal "you", meaning internet assholes) have so overanalyzed this movie that it almost makes me think i wish it was all just a dream sequence and neo will wake up at the end with nothing on his screen.

Thank god it never happened that way....

What is Winamp?
What is Winamp? A player you say? No, no baby. Winamp is much more than that.

Winamp is a lifestyle. It is freestyle. Give me a word. Versatility? Yeah. Visionary? Of course. Community? Now you're talking.

Winamp lives because it's users have a life.

Winamp is in the coffee house. On the laptop. Of the guy. Who is writing the screenplay. That you will be watching next year.

Winamp is on the screen. In the club. Where the DJ plays the tracks. That get you through the night.

Winamp is with you. When you take your playlist. Push it to the ether. And share the music that you love. With all of humanity.

Winamp lets you put together the soundtrack. That runs in the background of your mind. And allows you to define your life.

Winamp is your skin. Allowing you to look and feel the way you want.

Winamp is what it is and nothing more. But you are the one who makes it. Winamp is there for you. It is yours. What happens next? You tell me. Download Winamp.

Come then , listnen to my word and take heed of it: I will tell you of the two roads of inquiry which offer themselves to the mind. The one way, that It Is and cannot not-be, is the way of credibility based on truth. The other way, that It Is Not and that not-being must be, cannot be grasped by the mind; for you cannot know not-being and cannot express it.

Friday 26 September 2003

The European Commission has just announced an agreement whereby English will be the official language of the European nation rather
than German which was the other possibility.

As part of the negotiations, Her Majesty's Government conceded that English spelling had some room for improvement and has accepted a 5-yearphase-in plan that would become known as "Euro-English". In the first year, "s" will replace the soft "c". Sertainly, this will make the sivil servants jump with joy. The hard "c" will be dropped in favour of the "k". This should klear up konfusion, and keyboards kan have one less letter.

There will be growing publik enthusiasm in the sekond year when the troublesome "ph" will be replaced with the "f". This will make words like fotograf 20% shorter.

In the 3rd year, publik akseptanse of the new spelling kan be expected to reach the stage where more komplikated changes are possible. Governments will enkourage the removal of double letters which have always ben a deterent to akurate speling. Also, al wil agre that the horibl mes of the silent "e" in the languag is disgrasful and it should go away.

By the 4th yer peopl wil be reseptiv to steps such as replasing "th" with "z" and "w" with "v". During ze fifz yer, ze unesesary "o" kan be dropd from vords kontaining "ou" and after ziz fifz yer, ve vil hav a reil sensibl riten styl..

Zer vil be no mor trubl or difikultis and evrivun vil find it ezi tu understand ech oza. Ze drem of a united urop vil finali kum tru.

If zis mad yu smil, pleas pas it on to oza pepl.

The lines below actually made me feel good

"I Think"

I Think plates are really a huge problem
I Think dishes are too much on my mind
I Think aprons have got a lot to do with why the world sucks
But what can you do?

Like a Black rain, beating down on me
Like a Keats line, which won't let go of my brain
Like that cutie's ass, it is in my head
Blame it on Hubies Manager
Blame it on Hubies Manager
Blame it on Hubies Manager

I Think water are gonna drive us all crazy
And pizza dishes make me feel like a child
I Think gloves will eventually be the downfall of civilization
But what can you do? I said what can you do?

Like a Black rain, beating down on me
Like a Keats line, which won't let go of my brain
Like that cutie's ass, it is in my head
Blame it on Hubies Manager
Blame it on Hubies Manager
Blame it on Hubies Manager

Like a Black rain, beating down on me
Like that cutie's smile, cruel and cold
Like Keats's ass, it is in my head
Blame it on Hubies Manager
Blame it on Hubies Manager
Blame it on Hubies Manager

Just felt like posting some of my favorite murphy's laws.

I use them more than just 'sometimes;.

Rule of Accuracy
When working toward the solution of a problem, it always helps if you know the answer.

Law of Adult Opportunity
Opportunity always knocks at the least appropriate moment.

Law of Airports

Alan's Law of Research
The theory is supported as long as the funds are.

Law of Algebra
You never catch on until after the test.
Jewish Faith
What is hateful to you, do not to your fellow men. That is the entire Law; all the rest is commentary.

Its spiritual week here at Ruman's Blog.

The Golden Rule

The Golden Rule or the ethic of reciprocity is found in the scriptures of nearly every religion. It is often regarded as the most concise and general principle of ethics. It is a condensation in one principle of all longer lists of ordinances such as the Decalogue.

Day 1.

Bahá'í Faith
And if thine eyes be turned towards justice, choose thou for thy neighbour that which thou choosest for thyself.
_Epistle to the Son of the Wolf_, 30

You are The Cap'n!



Some men are born great, some achieve greatness and some slit the throats of any man that stands between them and the mantle of power. You never met a man you couldn't eviscerate. Not that mindless violence is the only avenue open to you - but why take an avenue when you have complete freeway access? You are the definitive Man of Action. You are James Bond in a blousy shirt and drawstring-fly pants. Your swash was buckled long ago and you have never been so sure of anything in your life as in your ability to bend everyone to your will. You will call anyone out and cut off their head if they show any sign of taking you on or backing down. You cannot be saddled with tedious underlings, but if one of your lieutenants shows an overly developed sense of ambition he may find more suitable accommodations in Davy Jones' locker. That is, of course, IF you notice him. You tend to be self absorbed - a weakness that may keep you from seeing enemies where they are and imagining them where they are not.

Its time for the joke of the day.....ta-da.....(trumpets sound in a distance)

A man left his cat with his brother while he went on vacation for a week. When he came back, the man called his brother to see when he could pick the cat up. The brother hesitated, then said, ''I'm so sorry, but while you were away, the cat died."
The man was very upset and yelled, ''You know, you could have broken the news to me better than that. When I called today, you could have said he was on the roof and wouldn't come down. Then when I called the next day, you could have said that he had fallen off and the vet was working on patching him up. Then when I called the third day, you could have said he had passed away.''

The brother thought about it and apologized.

"So how's Mom?" asked the man.

"She's on the roof and won't come down."


Post more soon.

My Greek Civ. Professor finally solved the issue that had taxed me for a long time.....Why are animal's named so rough while their meat is named very stylish.
Here is an example.

No one says, I'll have a pig...they say pork
No one says I'll have a swine...they say ham.
Similarly people call cow..beef
deer...veal
lamb..mutton.

Well, that is because German is a low level language while french is a hig class language.
All the farmers and meat herders spoke german, while meat eaters spoke french.

Therefore it was in the evolution of the Indo-Europeans that the language classification was formed.

........damm; I could not update for a couple of days despite having lots of things to say. That I belive is one of the most frustrating things.

Did anyone catch the MTV Video Music Awards (VMA) two days ago?
DID YOU ALL SEE BRITNEY OPEN MOUTH KISS MADONNA and then MADONNA KISS CRISTINA AUGUILIRA.

I bet every guy on the planet who saw that must have had the same expression I did. I doubt anything can ever recreate that expression.

Anyway on other notes, I finally started my new job at the dorm food court downstairs.

Had fun . Made $102.50 in 3 days. Today is the third day.
They made me scrub the entire main kitchen. And lets not forget all the dishes.....but it was good training.

Post more soon. My fingers hurt like crazy. I have cleaned more stuff in the last two days than I have in my lifetime.

Tuesday 26 August 2003

After the bomb blasts I felt it was necessary to post something worthwhile...now that I re-read the post I made earlier this morning, I feel that my post was out of anger and not rational.

So here is my new blog....

Lyrics of a song by Black Eyed Peas...called Where is the love

...Note only certain sections have been posted:::

What's wrong with the world, mama
People livin' like they ain't got no mamas
I think the whole world addicted to the drama
Only attracted to things that'll bring you trauma

But if you only have love for your own race
Then you only leave space to discriminate
And to discriminate only generates hate
And when you hate then you're bound to get irate

People killin', people dyin'
Children hurt and you hear them cryin'
Can you practice what you preach
And would you turn the other cheek

Father, Father, Father help us
Send us some guidance from above
'Cause people got me, got me questionin'
Where is the love (Love)

It just ain't the same, always unchanged
New days are strange, is the world insane
If love and peace is so strong
Why are there pieces of love that don't belong
Nations droppin' bombs
Chemical gasses fillin' lungs of little ones
With the ongoin' sufferin' as the youth die young
So ask yourself is the lovin' really gone
So I could ask myself really what is goin' wrong
In this world that we livin' in people keep on givin' in

Makin' wrong decisions, only visions of them dividends
Not respectin' each other, deny thy brother
A war is goin' on but the reason's undercover
The truth is kept secret, it's swept under the rug
If you never know truth then you never know love
Where's the love, y'all, come on (I don't know)
Where's the truth, y'all, come on (I don't know)
Where's the love, y'all

People killin', people dyin'
Children hurt and you hear them cryin'
Can you practice what you preach
And would you turn the other cheek

Father, Father, Father help us
Send us some guidance from above
'Cause people got me, got me questionin'
Where is the love (Love)

Where is the love (The love)
Where is the love (The love)
Where is the love
The love, the love

I feel the weight of the world on my shoulder
As I'm gettin' older, y'all, people gets colder
Most of us only care about money makin'
Selfishness got us followin' our own direction
Wrong information always shown by the media
Negative images is the main criteria
Infecting the young minds faster than bacteria
Kids act like what they see in the cinema
Yo', whatever happened to the values of humanity
Whatever happened to the fairness in equality
Instead in spreading love we spreading animosity
Lack of understanding, leading lives away from unity
That's the reason why sometimes I'm feelin' under
That's the reason why sometimes I'm feelin' down
There's no wonder why sometimes I'm feelin' under
Gotta keep my faith alive to lovers bound

People killin', people dyin'
Children hurt and you hear them cryin'
Can you practice what you preach
And would you turn the other cheek

Father, Father, Father help us
Send us some guidance from above
'Cause people got me, got me questionin'
Where is the love (Love)

Where is the love (The love)
Where is the love (The love)
Where is the love (The love)

Where is the love (The love)
Where is the love (The love)
Where is the love (The love)

Where is the love (The love)
Where is the love (The love)
Where is the love
The love, the love


Peace.

Damm you terrorists...
Another bomb blasts in BOMBay.........or Mumbai...sounds better.
I hope the people responsible are caught and then I would pay to see each one of them tortured and killed.

The attacks are a repeat of 10 years ago...just hope riots do NOT follow the pattern as well....

I apologise to any sardarji's in advance
Read at your own risk....

You can be sure the person is Sardar when he:

Puts lipstick on the forehead because he wants to makeup his mind.

Gets stabbed in a shoot out.

Thinks socialism means partying

Trips over a cordless phone.

Takes a ruler to bed to see how long he slept.

Studies for a blood test and fails.

Misses the 44 bus, and takes the 22 twice instead.

Gets locked in Furniture Shop and sleeps on the floor.

What do you call 10 Sardars standing ear to ear? A wind tunnel.

What do you see when you look into a Sardar's eyes? The back of his
head.

What do you call a sardar who drinks only beer?Just-beer Singh ('T' silent!)

What do you call a sardar who has only one drink? Just-one Singh.(Again, T silent)

Why does Sardar have "TGIF" written on their shoes? Toes Go In First.

"Oh, look at the dead bird." Sardar looked skyward and said "Where, Where?

What do smart Sardars and UFOs have in common? You always hear about them but you never see them.

Movie Review:
(Hopefully the first of many)

I was thinking hard regarding the movie I should start my reviewing with. So I decided the movie should be the most recent I have seen.

That would be the one i saw last night. All alone in the basement in the dark in an empty house - Final Destination.

This was a surprisingly scary movie. Maybe it was just the ambience, may be not. This movie is a few years old but still managed to scare me shitless....
The story starts with a school trip to Paris. Alex is a guy who gets a premonition and basically sees the plane he is on burting into flames. He then realizes that he was seeing the future, so he screams and in the ensuing madness is kicked out of the plane alongwith some classmates and one teacher.

The plane proves him right by exploding the moment it leaves the runway.
Everyone starts seeing him as a freak, but he comes to realize that death has a design for everyone and all he must do to survive is find the design.

The resuts of his deductions are downright spooky and the saying 'Death will find a way' is right on.

I recommend this movie highly to anyone with an appetite for horror and thrill.
Just remember 'Nothing is certain except Death and Taxes'

Sunday 3 August 2003

Songs currently in my playlist:-

I was reading timesofindia.com and was reading about the recent bomb blast in the BEST bus last monday.
I was also reading about the Shiv-Sena & BJP sponsored 'bandh'
Kudos to the VHP and also to some muslim organizations that supported this bandh.

I would hate to see a communal backlash similar to Dec '93.
I have strong feelings about those days but I would like to keep them private.
What I would like to make public is the location of the entire Srikrinshna Comminsion report based on those days when Mumbai burnt.
Please read it and see for yourself, feel for yourself.

I pray to whatever I belive in that such a thing is not repeated.

If you have any comments do mail me.

Just got back from Accounting class.

Beautiful weather this summer really.
Man, I had a tough quiz yesterday. It took me about 5 min to understand the problem and figure out what was expected of me. So when I saw my friends get their tests back today and dropping like dead flies I was shit scared.

But somehow I got 10/10. Man was I happy
The race is on again.
Must finish this final lap flying high or else the last 5 weeks will not be worth the efforts I put in them.

Musings of a confused philosopher:

If Fed Ex and UPS were to merge, would they call it FedUP?
If they arrested the Energizer Bunny, would they charge it with battery?
I believe five out of four people have trouble with fractions.
If it's zero degrees outside today and it's supposed to be twice as cold tomorrow, how cold is it going to be?
Why are they called apartments, when they're all stuck together?
Why are they called apartments, when they're all stuck together?
Tell a man that there are 400 billion stars and he'll believe you. Tell him a bench has wet paint and he has to touch it.
Do Roman paramedics refer to IV's as "4's"?

And now some of my favs:
Monday is an awful way to spend 1/7th of your life.
The problem with the gene pool is that there is no lifeguard.
To steal ideas from one person is plagiarism; to steal from many is research.
Success always occurs in private, and failure in full view.
For every action, there is an equal and opposite criticism.
To be a leader, watch where others are headed then run out in front of them.
Strangers are only friends we haven't met.

I'll post more of these soon.

Monday 28 July 2003

just read yesterday that the next season of friends will be their last...ahem ahem...{officially} this time.

Well, after ten years you would think a person would get sick of a show, well not me. I still love the re-runs and having about 95% of the eps on my computer helps.
There are numerous transcript sites on the net if you missed an episode, so be sure to check them out.

Hows everyone doing this fine week-end.
Another week passed away and today I read that Sushma Swaraj, the Health Minister of India announced that India has developed a vaccince for AIDS. My first thought was 'damm' India might be rich if this proves true.

But then I thought, this news is like a green signal for infidelity and adultry.

God Bless the Dead.

Thursday 24 July 2003

In my visit's to various Buffalo Bar's I have met people and seen people say stuff that is strange and very peculiar.

So i decided to let people know what people mean when they say something.
Here is the unofficial bar terminology

1. "YOU GET THIS ONE, NEXT ROUND IS ON ME."
(We will not be here long enough to get another round.)

2. "I'LL GET THIS ONE, NEXT ONE IS ON YOU."
(Happy hour is about to end... drafts are now a dollar, but by the next round, they will be $4.50 a pop.)

3. "HEY, WHERE IS THAT GIRLFRIEND OF YOURS?"
(I have no interest in talking to you except as a way to have sex with your girl friend.)

4. "I'LL HAVE A GLASS OF WHITE ZINFANDEL."
(FEMALE) (I am easy.)

5. "I'LL HAVE A GLASS OF WHITE ZINFANDEL."
(MALE) (I am gay.)

6. "I'LL HAVE A WHITE RUSSIAN." (FEMALE)
(I am really easy)

7. "I'LL HAVE A WHITE RUSSIAN." (MALE)
(I'm really gay)

8. "I DON'T FEEL WELL, LET'S GO HOME."
(FEMALE)
(You are paying more attention to your friends than to me.)

9. I DON'T FEEL WELL, LET'S GO HOME."
(MALE) (I am horny.)

10. "WHO'S GOT THE NEXT ROUND?"

Here is the best back to school guide I have ever read in my life...

http://www.cnet.com/techtrends/0-21321525-8-21321630-1.html?tag=st.cn.1.bts.21321525-8-21321630-1
You all know about the Darwin Awards - It's an annual honor given to the person who did the gene pool the biggest service by killing him/herself in the most extraordinarily stupid way. It is once again time to vote for the Darwin Award nominees for 2003.

You may recall last year's Darwin Award winner: The man who found out moments before making a 300 MPH dent in an Arizona cliff that the JATO (jet assisted take off) unit he'd strapped to his car could not be turned off once it was turned on. 1994's winner was the fellow who was killed by a Coke machine which toppled on top of him as he was attempting to tip a free soda out of it.

Some of my favorite nominees for 2003 are as follows :
Note. the order in which they are posted is random and does not reflect my personal choices.

1> A Queensland, Australia man, 63, and his female companion, 64, were driving along the Newell Highway near Moree, in Northwestern New South Wales, on Wednesday night, police said. Their car crashed into The side of a fully laden, 600 meter long train at a level crossing .

The vehicle became wedged between the second last and last carriages And was dragged sideways beside the track as the train continued towards Moree, a police spokeswoman said. After being carried more than a kilometer and a half, they approached an unfenced bridge with a 10 meter drop, the spokeswoman said. Moments before they reached the precipice, the car was struck by a pylon, dislodged from the train and spun several times.

When it came to rest, the pair managed to free themselves from the wreck with minor bruising and the man set off along the railway line for help. But he slipped on the bridge and fell to his death.

2> In February, according to police in Windsor, Ont., Daniel Kolta, 27, and Randy Taylor, 33, died in a head-on collision, thus earning a tie in the game of chicken they were playing with their snowmobiles.

3> A man cleaning a bird feeder on the balcony of his condominium apartment in this Toronto suburb, slipped and fell 23 floors to his death while he was standing on a chair with wheels. "It appears the chair moved and he went over the balcony. It's one of those freak accidents. No foul play is suspected" (get it?)

4> Ken Charles Barger,47, accidentally shot himself to death in December in Newton, N.C., when, awakening to the sound of a ringing telephone beside his bed, he reached for the phone but grabbed instead a Smith & Wesson 38 Special, which discharged when he drew it to his ear.

5> Six people drowned Monday while trying to rescue a chicken that had fallen into a well in southern Egypt. An 18 year old farmer was the first to descend into the 60 foot well. He drowned, apparently after an undercurrent in the water pulled him down, police said. His sister and two brothers, none of whom could swim well, went in one by one to help him, but also drowned. Two elderly farmers then came to help, but they apparently were pulled by the same undercurrent. The bodies of the six were later pulled out of the well in the village of Nazlat Imara, 240 miles south of Cairo.

The chicken was pulled out. It survived.

6> A terrible diet and a room with no ventilation are being blamed for the death of a man who was killed by his own gas. There was no mark on his body but autopsy showed large amounts of methane gas in his system. His diet had consisted of beans and cabbage (and a couple of other things). It was just the right combination of foods. It appears the man died in his sleep from breathing the poisonous cloud that was hanging over his bed.

Had he been outside or had his windows been opened , it wouldn't have been fatal. But the man was shut up in his near airtight bedroom. He was "...a big man with a huge capacity for creating [this deadly gas]." Three of the rescuers got sick and one was hospitalized.

7> A 24 yr old salesman from Hialeah, Fla., was killed near Lantana, Fla., in March when his car smashed into a pole in the median strip of I-95 in the middle of the afternoon. Police said that the man was travelling at 80 MPH and, judging by the sales manual that was found open and clutched to his chest, had been busy reading.

Thats all for now. Post more nominees soon.

Things I wish I could say. I know most of you feel the same way:-

I can see your point, but I still think you're full of crap.

I see you've set aside this special time to humiliate yourself in public.

I'll try being nicer if you'll try being smarter.

I'm out of my mind, but feel free to leave a message.

Ahhh...I see the screw-up fairy has visited us again...

I like you. You remind me of when I was young and stupid.

I have plenty of talent and vision, I just don't give a damn.

I started out with nothing & still have most of it left.

Sarcasm is just one more service I offer.

If I throw a stick, will you leave?

Whatever kind of look you were going for, you missed.

CHAOS, PANIC, & DISORDER - my work here is done.

I thought I wanted a career, turns out I just wanted paychecks.

All of you know me as a funny guy. One of my most favorite comedies happens to be the Blackadder series. Do catch it on TV if you can.
Here are some of my most fav insults from that series. This is Blackadder commenting on various topics:-

ON BALDRICK'S ACTING

The only decent impression he can do is of the man with no talent.

Baldrick, in the Amazonian rain forests there are tribes of Indians as yet untouched by civilisation who have developed more convincing Charlie Chaplin impressions than yours.

ON BOB

You are a girl. And you're a girl with as much talent for disguise as a giraffe in dark glasses trying to get into a polar bears only golf club.

ON THE FLYING ACES

For 'magnificent men' read 'biggest showoffs since Lady Godiva entered the royal enclosure at Ascot claiming she had literally nothing to wear.'

ON LIEUTENANT GEORGE'S ACTING

You were the least convincing female impressionist since Tarzan went through Jane's handbag and ate her lipstick.

ON PRIME MINISTER PITT

He's about as effective as a cat flap in an elephant house.

ON THE SCARLET PIMPERNEL

He's the most overrated human being since Judas Iscariot won the AD31 Best Disciple Competition.
ON SQUADRON COMMANDER FLASHHEART

Most of the infantry think you're a prat. Ask them who they'd prefer to meet - Squadron Commander Flashheart or the man who cleans the public toilets in Aberdeen and they'd go for Wee Jock Poo-Pong McPlop every time.

ON WAR

A war hasn't been fought this badly since Olaf the Hairy, High Chief of all the vikings, accidentally ordered 80,000 battle helmets with the horns on the inside.

Monday 14 July 2003

What an awesome and fun week-end.
Met tons of people at America's second largest food festival (After Chichago).
I was working for a local Indian resteraunt by the name of Tandoori.

It was so much fun...but very tiring. I guess I served food to at least five hundered people myself during the two days of Taste-o Buffalo

I'll be back next year.

I fancy some Homer Simpson quotes from one of my all favorite shows - The Simpsons.

So here are some for today:-

Son, when you participate in sporting events, it's not
whether you win or lose... it's how drunk you get.

Kids, you tried your best and you failed miserably.
The lesson is, never try.

It's not easy to juggle a pregnant wife and a troubled
child, but somehow I managed to fit in eight hours of
TV a day.

Homer: But every time I learn something new, it pushes out
something old! Remember that time I took a home
wine-making course and forgot how to drive?
Marge: That's because you were drunk!
Homer: And how!

Operator! Give me the number for 911!

Homer: Okay, brain. You don't like me, and I don't like you,
but let's get through this thing and then I can continue
killing you with beer.
Homer's Brain: It's a deal!

Well today its time to diss some layers so here goes......
Please don't sue.
hehe

==================================================================
What do you call 5000 dead lawyers at the bottom of the ocean?
A good start!

How can you tell when a lawyer is lying?
His lips are moving.

Why won't sharks attack lawyers?
Professional courtesy.

What do have when a lawyer is buried up to his neck in sand?
Not enough sand.

What's the difference between a lawyer and a bucket of shit?
The bucket.

As Mr. Smith was on his deathbed, he attempted to formulate a plan that would allow him to take at least some of his considerable wealth with him. He called for the three men he trusted most - his lawyer, his doctor, and his clergyman. He told them, "I'm going to give you each £30,000 in cash before I die. At my funeral, I want you to place the money in my coffin so that I can try to take it with me."

All three agreed to do this and were given the money. At the funeral, each approached the coffin in turn and placed an envelope inside. While riding in the limousine to the cemetery, the clergyman said "I have to confess something to you fellows. Brother Smith was a good churchman all his life, and I know he would have wanted me to do this. The church needed a new baptistery very badly, and I took £10,000 of the money he gave me and bought one. I only put £20,000 in the coffin." The physician then said, "Well, since we're confiding in one another, I might as well tell you that I didn't put the full £30,000 in the coffin either.

Smith had a disease that could have been diagnosed sooner if I had this very new machine, but the machine cost £20,000 and I couldn't afford it then. I used £20,000 of the money to buy the machine so that I might be able to save another patient. I know that Smith would have wanted me to do that." The lawyer then said, "I'm ashamed of both of you. When I put my envelope into that coffin, it held my personal check for the full £30,000."

What is the difference between a tick and a lawyer?
A tick falls off of you when you die.

I guess that's enough for today

Laugh it all up people.

a really laugh-riot:----

A distinguished professor was arrested yesterday at Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston, Texas while trying to board a flight with a calculator, protractor, compass, and slide rule. The security crew immediately searched the elderly man when they saw him boarding with a calculator in his hand. A search of his hand bag revealed the devices. The man was charged with carrying instruments of math instruction.
Further investigation has revealed he is a member of the Al-Gebra terrorist network.

Here we go people....part 2 of Zan Faction

Quote:
A/N: All names associated with Red Faction belong to Volition Entertainmenmt and NOT me.

All names associated with the show "Roswell" belong to Jason Katims and NOT me.


Anyway, here is part 2.

I was so tired of my life; so tired that I did the unimaginable. I signed up with an alien company and left my home and everything I had behind. I needed things to change; I just never imagined they would change so drastically.

Let me first tell you what happened on the journey from Earth.

‘The Husk’ was a big ship. It was filled with Thorions, Lokians and Odinons which were residents of the three newest planets to make contact with Earth.

All these people were on their way to Antar to join The Skins Corp. Earth acted as a junction between the space systems.

Most of the travelers arrived a few days ago and had already bunked into the ship.

I saved money traveling on the company’s ship as I did not have to buy a ticket.

Ticket prices were raising everyday, as costs for the fuels required to fly the ship, went up.

I was assigned section four-one-one-r. It was pretty tough to find my room, what with the ship containing about six thousand rooms and all. There were guards everywhere. I should have realized what the situation was going to be like on Antar by watching the attitude of the guards on the ship. The guards were all huge and loved bullying the passengers around. If you were a scrawny human you might as well forget about getting to your final destination without being pushed around and laughed at for at least an hour. It was a good thing I was anything but scrawny. Passing through the cafeteria, I saw that the people there were all scared of the guards. Some of the guards were walking from table to table demanding a kind of protection money.

I was instantly reminded of the era of the mafia back on Earth when they collected money through extortion.

All I can say is these people were much tougher than the Mafiosi. They would act first, answer questions later, if questions were even asked. Before anyone came toward me I was out of there. There was no way I was going to be a mark for them to target.

I always wonder; would I have gotten off the ship if I knew what was going to happen to me on Antar. I think not.

By sticking to the shadows and avoiding anyone in the corridors I finally made it to my room. The room assigned to me was pretty small. It was a room big enough for just two people. I waited to see who my roommate would be. I was hoping it was neither of the aliens on board. That’s when I thought that I was an alien to those people myself.

It wasn’t that I discriminated against aliens. I just did not want the people I had encountered before with me. I didn’t want to share the small confined space; that would be my living quarters during the trip to Antar, with one of them.

Each one of them had a distinct quality. The Thorions were an aggressive race. Strong built and always carrying a weapon.

The Lokions were a very mischievous and naught race. Always searching for fun and committing trouble wherever they went.

The Odinons were by far the better of the three. Wise and old, they were the only race among the three that was older than the Earthlings.

I was brought out of my musing by a loud sound followed by the opening of the door. I tilted my head as I lie on the bed that I had claimed as mine. The man who followed the sound was very peculiar. Initially, I got a feeling that he was a Lokion, what with his dress and all.

He was dressed like a trickster would. He was wearing this brown jacket. To the naked eye it was a simple piece of clothing but the trained eye could have noticed the small knife in his shirt pocket or a radio in the outer pocket. I could make out some guns here and then some. Obviously the contents of his inner coat were not lost on me. He must have made a lot of enemies if he carried around all the ammunition that he did.

He went to the open bed, put his bags underneath it and sat down. Not long after he had sat down the door chimed and some people came in to talk to him. I relaxed and closed my eyes wishing for this trip to be over soon.

With the space as small as it was, it was hard not to eavesdrop. I did everything possible to try not to listen and the first time I thought I had done a good job. I had only caught bits and pieces of his conversation with the others. With the volume of visitors that was coming to our door I thought this guy was pretty popular, that is, until I heard some shouting. I woke up only to find my roommate was being ganged up on by six other individuals.

Three of them were obviously Lokions. I realized this when I saw their appearance. They were tiny in size although I knew they were shape-shifters. Imagine a dress that a clown would wear on the day he did not have to work or had retired. It was slightly formal but with the inner image of a joker imminent.

I thought this was an internal matter but when I saw that the other three were Thorions, I almost felt pity for the poor guy.

Thorions were from the same space system as the Lokions. They always carried around this huge hammer with them. They were dressed in rough clothing similar to the ones worn by Gimli in the Lord of the Rings (remember that movie?) and they smelt as bad as you can imagine they would.

They were obviously arguing about some bet they had made and had lost. Anyway, they were here to take their money back from my roommate. He brushed them off and spoke English with a clear Texan accent. I immediately realized this guy was a human and decided to help him out.

I stood up and discreetly went for the blaster in my duffel bag. “What’s up guys,” I asked casually. The Thorions didn’t even turn but the Lokions immediately noticed me and decided I was a small liability to be cleared off. One of them touched a Thorion and pointed to me. Evidently he needed the Thorion to do his dirty work. The human also looked at me with an expression I could not make out.

However, when he saw the blaster in my left hand, he smirked. He signaled me to look behind him, on the bed under a blanket with the flick of his eyes. I saw a chain gun obviously needed to fend off such situations. He silently begged me to create a distraction so he could get the gun. I was nervous. Having a gun in a duffel bag does not mean you go around waving it everyday.

But I nodded and then without a word kicked the nearest Lokian. He was pretty light because he went flying through the opened door. The Thorions must have been pretty dumb or had slow reflexes because the next thing I knew they were all laying down on the floor in a pool of their own blood. The remaining Lokians fled the room. I didn’t blame them. Taking down three Thorians all at once was something that didn’t happen all that frequently. And whoever dared to do such a thing could have wiped out a Lokian quite easily.

The other human was calm as he went out and called a medic to take away the bodies.

I was still frozen when he came back in to talk to me.

I must have been really frozen because he had to really give me a good shake.

When I breathed again, he visibly relaxed.

He threw his gun on the bed, opened a bottle of whiskey and poured a glass and gave it to me.

“Good job there buddy”, he complimented me.

“Thanks. Nice shooting by the way.” I was trying to make small talk. I had no idea what kind of character he was. I thought if I looked at him the wrong way he would surely blast me so I was nervous.

He must have sensed my discomfort because he told me, “Been shooting for years, my dad’s the sheriff of my town.” That was enough for me. He was a good ol boy from a small town in Texas. Who would be better to have my back than him?

All I could say was, “No wonder,” then I added, “My names Max, Max Evans.”

He grinned and replied,”Valenti, Kyle Valenti.”

I didn’t know if this was a good thing or not. My first friend had just waxed three Thorians. I definitely wanted him in my corner but what caused him to get mixed up with them in the first place? That could be a bad thing. Did I really want to get mixed up in this? There was so much that I didn’t know so many unknown variables to deal with. All I know is that I didn’t have the comfort of being told what to do anymore. All I know is that I’m on my way to an alien planet to change my life from being what it had always been. This time I am on my own, making my own choices and taking responsibility for them.

I was on my way to becoming the Max Evans that I had envisioned being. This was just the first of many steps that I had to take.
IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT

If anyone wants to im me do it at tallguy ruman on aim
and ruman_agarwal on the msn network
I was refelcting on some philosophical shit we see in the movies when I realised these lines from the Matrix are so true...
check it out.......

Agent Smith: I'd like to share a revelation that I've had, during my time here. It came to me when I tried to classify your species I realized that you're not actually mammals. Every mammal on this planet instinctively develops a natural equilibrium with the surrounding environment, but you humans do not. You move to an area, and you multiply, and multiply, until every natural resource is consumed. The only way you can survive is to spread to another area. There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. A virus. Human beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet, you are a plague, and we are the cure.

Dr. Ellie Arroway: Occam's razor. You ever heard of it?
Palmer Joss: Hack-em's Razor. Sounds like some slasher movie.
S.R. Hadden: First rule in government spending: why build one when you can have two at twice the price?
Michael Kitz: Your having sent this announcement all over the world may well constitute a breach of national security.
Dr. Ellie Arroway: This isn't a person-to-person call. You can't possibly think that a civilization sending this kind of message would intend it just for Americans.
Michael Kitz: I'm saying you might have consulted us; obviously, the contents of this message could be extremely sensitive.
Dr. Ellie Arroway: You want to classify prime numbers?
New:::::::Quotes from the movie Contact...these are really good

Palmer Joss: What are you studying up there?
Dr. Ellie Arroway: Oh, the usual. Nebulae, quasars, pulsars, stuff like that. What are you writing?
Palmer Joss: The usual. Nouns, adverbs, adjective here and there.
Whew.......Watched 'Contact' yesterday.

What a movie that is.
I could totally relate to Dr. Ellie Arroway (thats Jodie Foster's character).

Here is my favorite conversation from the movie:

Ellie Arroway: Dad, do you think there's people on other planets?
Ted Arroway: I don't know, Sparks. But I guess I'd say if it is just us... seems like an awful waste of space.

Makes sense.....
Watching that movie makes me want to screw my Business Major and run off to Berkely, California and join the SETI project....thats the Search for Extra Terrestrial Intelligence.

Maybe someday.
