Kudos to Gautam for standing up to Shane. A double ton and a nick which cost only one match - totally worth it.

'The federal government is sending each of us a $600 rebate. If we spend that money at Wal-Mart, the money goes to China. If we spend it on gasoline it goes to the Arabs. If we buy a computer it will go to India. If we purchase fruit and vegetables it will go to Mexico, Honduras and Guatemala. If we purchase a car it will go to Germany/Japan. If we purchase useless crap it will go to Taiwan and none of it will help the American economy. The only way to keep that money here at home is to spend it on prostitutes and beer, since these are the only products still produced in US. I've been doing my part."

Going by the same logic, shouldn't 'pantyhose' be for a pan. Couldn't resist this lame PJ.
Fashion is truly converging. Earlier, women had skirts, saris, long and short dresses, pantyhoses, garter belts, stockings etc and men had suits, pants /shirts and shorts. Then, female fashion invaded male domain with evolution of pants, shirts, shorts etc for women. They even usurped business suits which were a very male thing. Well, now it's the turn of male fashion to move in on female territory. Skirts, manbras, manscars and mantyhose and this is just the beginning.
The world is slowly moving towards becoming unisex. There might come a time when malls will not have separate aisles for men and women clothes. They will all be in the same section. Don't raise your eyebrow, did you imagine mantyhose 10 years ago. Impossible is nothing.
Bright side - Now, couples can wear each other's clothes without being called kinky.

Welcome to the new cartel of Indian airline companies. First, Kingfisher bought the low cost carrier Deccan and slowly started increasing fares thereby putting a spanner in the growth of low cost sector. This gave other low cost airlines good opening to increase their fares. Now this 'friendship'.
Inspite of crude prices falling from their high of $150+ to $80 today, the prices of air travel which was increased due to hike in crude has not decreased. With this 'friendship' one can only assume that it will either stay there or go up. I hope the MRTP guys are not sleeping and will look into this 'friendship' more closely to ensure that monopoly is not created as these two now will own about 60% of the market.
The current news is that they have invited Indian to join hands with them. Trust Mallya to go for a 'threesome'. He is not known as the king of good times for nothing.
Customers get ready to get 'screwed', again and again and again......

There are certain things which you should never 'try' to time or outguess:
In all of above, the chances of looking like the guy below are pretty high.

Goldman's and Morgan's conversion from investment banks to commercial banks.
Bail out of AIG, Freddie, Fannie and Bear Stearns.
Relief package for troubled loans.
Takeover of top three Icelandic banks by its government.
Ban on short selling.
Is this the end of Capitalism (greed, greed and more greed)?
Is this the beginning of 'Socialist Capitalism'?
Does it mean India's philosophy of socialism in capitalism was right all along?
- Chai wala /Chewing gum wala
- Rehab Clinics
- Better halves/Partners - Now they don't have to put up with the nicotine breath in the name of love.
But like Viagra, it will only prop up for a short time. What next?
Warning: Regular doses of viagra might cause dangerous side effects.

- I work for money. If you want loyalty, get a dog.
- As long as my boss keeps pretending that I am earning a lot, I go on pretending that I work a lot.
Will add more as and when I come across. Feel free to use these in your discussions.
I came across a website, link below, which sells doggie clothes. That is common you'd say. But this company is not just selling clothes, but also bikinis. Yeah, you read it right, the company is selling bikinis for dogs.
How do they make bikinis for dogs. What do you ask when you go to buy? Can I get a size 36B or is it BB. What do you do for reference? In a lingerie store you can look at some woman (like men need an excuse), point and say that size is what I am looking for. Hell, you can look at the salesgirl and say that. But how do you do that for dogs.
This is not the all important serious life changing stuff this post is all about. This is about the expression "It's a dog's life".
The expression means the person's life is miserable. It sucks. For trivia buffs, this expression was first recorded in 16th century.
Let's look at a dog's life:
- They can pee/poop where ever they want and not worry about cleaning.
- They don't have to worry about whether the toilet seat is up or down.
- They can lick their wounds and move on.
- They are carried by women in arms and are in constant contact with their boobs (if you need a substitute - woof woof).
- They get to lick women all the time and not get screamed at or asked to use listerine.
- Women never fake headaches with dogs.
- They get to do the doggy style..always....
I think it's time that we redefine the meaning of "It's a dog's life". It should no longer be used by people whose life suck. It should denote happiness and imply that life rocks.

One thing Ramadoss and the government finally got it right. The ban on smoking in public places. I can see all smokers up in arms hoping this post will go up in smoke.
Banning cars or banning manufacturing of cigarettes will be infringement on freedom. It would mean a ban on making a choice. However, banning smoking in public place is upholding the rights of 90% people to inhale tobacco free air. This is such a fundamental right which smokers violate with impunity regardless of whether it causes air pollution, allergic reactions or plain irritation to others.
I say smokers should rejoice that manufacturing cigarettes is not banned. They are free to buy cigarettes and kill themselves. After all, every one has a right to screw their own lives.
Thank God the smoking ban is finally in place. Now, your smoking will not kill me.
