Spam Mail Prestige

"These days, I get around XYZ spam/junk mails everyday!!!"
"These days, I get the African fund transfer fraud emails 4 times a day!!!"


The number of spam mails coming to our inboxes has become a means of "boast" these days. :)

When saying these numbers, we often try to say that 'See, I am so "popular" and "famous" and "known in various circles" '.... :-D

science links

Heres a very interesting article about red rain that occurred in Kerala, a state of India, in 2001; it has been claimed to have been caused by "bacteria living cells like" particles, that came from a meteor!


Heres an article describing a hypothetical propulsion scheme to reach Mars in 3 hours (currently it takes 6 monhts)

Communication via coarseness

These days I have developed a tendency to analyze how people are behaving by breaking it into some primordial urges, for example, like the ones in this post. I try to see activity in terms of how selfish it is, how it is trying to promote self, how much ego is present in it, how much empathy is present, how much a tendency to help other people is present, how much a tendency to follow what other people have told you since birth is present, how much fun-loving tendency is present, how much sacrifice and love are there, etc.

I find that many people dont tend to behave with "propriety" all the time. Many of the times, they are so obviously egoistic and condescending. At one point I became very depressed with the state of the world -- however I must note that though in some circles, the people were very badly behaved, there were some circles where people were very well behaved. Such tendencies tended to sustain in circles/groups of people.

However, now my depression is less, since I have realized that people dont always have to politely ask, but their rudely shouting at another to get their point across, is sometimes an equally powerful tool to get matters sorted out.. They shout, and try to show they are better off, but that attitude pays off with the right people, because they can give a fitting reply to this rudeness, which will actually help both parties in a better position.

(I know, I know, this is a really ackward post, and makes you wonder why are you reading this after all)
