Interesting read

This interesting article is taken from an email. Enjoy reading..
(1) Fine: This is the word women use to end an argument when they are
right and you need to shut up.
(2) Five Minutes: If she is getting dressed, this means a half an hour.
Five minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given five more
minutes to watch the game before helping around the house.
(3) Nothing: This is the calm before the storm. This means something, and
you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with nothing usually end
in fine.
(4) Go Ahead: This is a dare, not permission. Don't Do It!
(5) Loud Sigh: This is actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement often
misunderstood by men. A loud sigh means she thinks you are an idiot and
wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you
about nothing. (Refer back to # 3 for the meaning of nothing.)
(6) That's OK: This is one of the most dangerous statements a women can
make to a man. That's okay means she wants to think long and hard before
deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake.
(7) Thanks: A woman is thanking you, do not question, or faint. Just say
you're welcome. (I want to add in a clause here - This is true, unless she
says 'Thanks a lot' - that is PURE sarcasm and she is not thanking you at
all. DO NOT say 'you're welcome' . that will bring on a 'whatever'). LOL
(8) Whatever: Is a woman's way of saying @#$@% YOU!
(9) Don't worry about it, I got it: Another dangerous statement, meaning
this is something that a woman has told a man to do several times, but is
now doing it herself. This will later result in a man asking 'What's
wrong?' For the woman's response refer to # 3.

Unlucky Tendulkar and Hawkeye

Well, it has refreshed the memory of old days (about ten years), when Indian batting revolved around him and once he got out, resistance seemed to be sucked out from Indian Batting line up. Today, when it looked that He might carry India into a position of safety, Mr Harris spoiled it.
I have compiled some reactions to his dismissal. Don't feel good about writing this post. Remembering about Semi final World Cup dismissal to Sanath Jayasuriya. India managed 120 -8 and Tendulkar  made about 66-67.
67.2 Harris to Tendulkar, OUT, 82.9 kph, Harris has struck! What a wicket. And that over the wicket and outside leg stump line has worked again. The little big man of Indian cricket has fallen after a fine hundred. It landed outside leg stump on a length, Tendulkar went for the sweep, the ball turned in, bounced off the thigh pad, went on to the elbow guard and fell on the stumps. Harris can't believe it, he runs around in sheer joy and falls flat on his back on the ground even as the team-mates crowd him. What a moment.

Jerome rubs it in : "where are those harris critics now? "

Jaco du Toit: "I guess I have to apologise to Harris. What do I know?. Just your regular sideline coach it seems.."

Tiaan: "About the whole Harris argument.....all I am saying is...he got lucky with Tendulkar's wicket, Swallow does not make a summer."
Sarang: "Harris is acting like a bowling machine that is pitching the ball in the rough outside the legstump. All 3 wickets he got were because of variable bounce and not due to his contribution. He is not changing line or length."

Tendulkar didn't leave the crease for a while. He couldn't believe the ball had gone behind him to hit the stumps. He shook his head, and shook his head again, stood there for a while in utter disappointment before he slowly trudged off.
cricinfo has introduced a new feature under the name of Hawkeye, but it is different from what you see on telly.

 हिंदी भाषा का यह अक्षर नेतरहाट के सन्दर्भ में एक विशेष अर्थ ग्रहण कर लेता है और एक क्रिया की तरह उपयोग किया जाता है.  आखिर कर घ है क्या? सीधें शब्दों में घ का अर्थ खाना - छात्रों को मिलने वाला खाना खाना - घट जाना होता है. किन्तु यह घ होता नहीं, किया जाता है.
इसके मूल में कारण कुछ भी हो सकता है. मसलन श्रीमान जी से किसी बात पे डांट पड़ जाना, कक्षा डक करने और पकड़े जाने पर भड़ास निकलने के लिए घ करवाना. लेकिन यह काम कोई वरीय छात्र ही करवा सकता है.
परन्तु सबसे ज्यादा घ के होने के पीछे कारण खाना का स्तर घटना होता है और घ होना एक संकेत होता है की खाने का स्तर में सुधार की आवश्यकता है.
अपनी आवाज़ उठाने के और भी तरीके होते हैं नेतरहाट में. उदहारण के तौर पे बगान उजाड़ना जिसके बारे में फिर कभी बताया जाएगा.

Facebook overtaking Orkut?

Here is an interesting article which may be showing a trend whether competition to Google is catching up in online arena. According to data, the rate at which facebook users are growing, may soon lead to Facebook overtaking Google.
There may be some substance to the news, as I find my ex boss on facebook but never found him on Orkut.
May be this is start of the phenom which MS has faced when Google launched its search engine. 
And I am writing this on a Google's site :-)
