Bike crash

Well, sad news - my bike was in an accident.

A friend of mine who is not too accustomed to driving a Royal Enfield took my bike out early on Saturday morning cause he had an interview to attend in a place quite far away. Guess he was also driving a little too fast. He got hit by a Sumo and lost control of the bike, took it to the mud-road and fell. He also dropped the bike. Good that the guy did not get hurt badly and did not drop the bike on his leg. That would have been really bad. He managed to drive the bike back.

I was pretty much shocked to see my bike like that. The headlight dome was twisted and had taken a hit. Both the right indicators were gone. The footrests were twisted out of recognition. And I think the hit was pretty bad cause the handle-bar was twisted. What I didn't know at this time was also that the fork had taken a hit. But life goes on, so didn't lose my cool and decided to take the bike to the Bullet garage then and there. Anwin and Sanjeeb accompanied me with my friend.

Theres this Bullet garage in HRBR layout that me and Anwin haunt and we took it there cause we know the guy well and he's quite honest. After thinking about whether we would take it out on insurance or pay for it, I decided to pay for it. I really don't want to have to wait too long to get my hands on my bike again. Well, my bike is still there in the garage. Work has begun. Let's hope that I get it soon.

There goes your hopes of riding the bike Renie!

But otherwise the weekend was a real blast. Sanjeeb also stayed over. We had some network Quake 3 games that rocked. It was so much fun that Anwin even tried his hand at this hated game. Saturday night was also awesome - or should I say early Sunday morning. We played a game of paintball - except that we did not have paintball gear. We played it with empty ciggie packs and a LOT of honesty.

Nice one.....

Generalisations - men and women....

Well, I have been thinking of posting this for a very long time. I am not too sure that I will do a good job, but let me try to. Firstly, a disclaimer - I am not against women and their views in any way. Aaargh, but why try explain that here - this post is all going to be about this idea only.

Men - generalise. About women, that is. Or that is what women have told me. And I have to accept. I have noticed instances where men generalise in situations and to tell you the truth, I do too. But I don' t think it a sin that we men generalise. About women that is...

When men generalise, we usually end up by saying that "Women are like that". Yes, we do and I know that many other men do so. Hehe, maybe even some women say that. But that is not important. What I want to say is that we generalise about women. Why? - cause we think thats how they are. Not all of them, but most of them. But that is the point right - it is the majority who act that way, so we generalise. I cannot give a technical explanation of generalise. If interested, please try Wikipedia.

So we go ahead and generalise and say that women are emotional, hi-strung and loads of the other stuff that jokes of this kind are made of. There's so much more, but that is the stuff that jokes are made of. None of us actually say that.

Well, when we, in the course of some conversation, say that " You women are all the same", we would be received with weird stares and sometimes, they even ask us how we can say something like that. Rarely, a heated argument ensues. I have had such an argument with a girl I knew well. I escaped with my eyes intact.

Ok, fine. But then, I get some emails on my office inbox. Spam to be exact, or mindless stuff that people in their right minds will not forward. But well, thats for another day. So I read it and it is actually for once, pretty good jokes. But these are jokes about men. And they are good ones. But the recurring theme in these jokes is that men are generalised. But then, we accept that we are like that. We do like to curl up on the couch with a cold beer and chips, watching a game all night. We do not ask for directions. I don't for one. But we accept our traits.

This is where we differ from women. They will never accept their similar traits. They say, don't generalise. But I say, why - you are after all like that. There's nothing wrong in it. But how is it that we cannot generalise, but they can. We have been the butt of countless jokes involving cars, directions, toilet-seats, football, TV, couches etc. So when I can accept my "faults" or what nature has given me, why not accept yours. We are the same, yet different. You generalise, we also generalise. We accept, but why cannot you??

I mean, having talked to some women about this, even the more liberal minded ones, they still do not accept. I really cannot understand. Is there someone out there who can explain??

Bumper Stickers

Just came across some Bumper Stickers on a site....thought I would share them here with you guys....the ones I love are in bold.

Keep on working, millions on welfare depend on you!

I didn't climb to the top of the food chain to become a vegetarian!

Alcohol and calculus don't mix. DON'T DRINK AND DERIVE!

So many stupid people, and so few asteroids.

My wife says I should get up and go to work, but the voices in my head say I should stay home and clean my guns.

The generation of random numbers is too important to leave to chance.

I don't think, therefore I am not.

Say "NO" to drugs. That will bring the prices down.

Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.

Double your drive space. Delete Windows.

I'm Canadian. It's like being American, but without the gun.

Whenever I feel blue, I start breathing again.

I used to have a handle on life, but it broke.

The original point and click interface was a Smith & Wesson.

The meek shall inherit the earth, after we're through with it.

If you believe in telepathy, think about honking.

People like you are the reason people like me need medication.

Every time you open your mouth, some idiot starts talking.

The box said Windows 2000 or better. So I installed Linux.

Use the best: Linux for servers, Mac for graphics, Windows for Solitaire.

I found Jesus - he was behind the sofa all the time.

So many cats, so few recipes.

Rock is dead. Long live paper and scissors.

I don't have a beer gut, I have a protective covering for my rock hard abs.

To err is human, to blame it on somebody else shows management potential.

Procrastinate now.

The last time politics and religion were mixed, people were burned at the stake.

Rehab is for quitters.

My dog can lick anyone!

The trouble with life is there's no background music.

Quoting one is plagiarism. Quoting many is research.

Therapy is expensive. Popping bubble wrap is cheap. You choose.

Errors have been made. Others will be blamed.

I'm not crazy, I've just been in a very bad mood for 30 years.

Allow me to introduce my selves.

Sarcasm is just one more service I offer.

Getting on your feet means getting off your butt.

I'm not tense, just terribly, terribly alert.

If you want breakfast in bed, sleep in the kitchen.

I used to be schizophrenic, but we're OK now.

I'm going to graduate on time, no matter how long it takes.

Anything not worth doing is not worth doing well.

Some people are only alive because it is illegal to shoot them.

You're just jealous because the voices only talk to ME.

Beauty is in the eye of the beer holder.

Life would be easier if I had the source code.

I said "no" to drugs, but they didn't listen.

Smile, it's the second best thing you can do with your lips.

I took an IQ test and the results were negative.

Don't drink and drive. You might hit a bump and spill your drink.

God is my co-pilot, but the Devil is my bombardier.

Madness takes its toll. Please have exact change.

My wife keeps complaining I never listen to her (or something like that).

Sure you can trust the government! Just ask a native American!

Stop repeat offenders. Don't re-elect them!

Driver carries no cash. He's married.

If I get you advantage, can I take drunk of you?

I doubt, therefore I might be.

There are 10 types of people in the world. Those who understand binary, and those who don't.

Thank God I'm an atheist.

Vegetarian: Indian word for lousy hunter.

Squirrels: Nature's speed bumps.

Happy Valentines day!!!

Yeah, yeah....I know that it sounds pathetic coming from me....but what the hell.....

It is an ordinary day after all and I think of it like my birthday - just another day. But most other people don't seem to think of it that way. I kinda hate this day (or rather, the way in which this day is so "jadedly" celebrated). It kinda seems so put-up that I feel sick. I mean, comeon, do we really need a day to celebrate love or anything for that matter. Don't demean it people!!

Well, all that apart, I just thought that this is a great time to remember friends and wish them luck in their endevaours into this field. I know some are already in....some may be getting married in the near future. And some say that they will NEVER get married in their lives. Well, I will call you in 5 years buddy....i am sure that I will be able to hear your kid (and by that I mean a legitimate kid by a legal wife!!) in the background!!. Others may get married at a later date, still others fall in fall out....life goes on....

Have a great day!!

Satanic perspective....

Black Sabbath (From The Satanic Perspective)

[This cover originally appeared on Black Sabbath tribute album Nativity In Black,
but this rare version has Peter Steele's own lyrics, sung from the perspective of Lucifer.]

Who is she that kneels - so respectfully before me
A virgin of snow white - purity
Do not fear - my fortunate one
Let us consummate our igneous union

Ave ave satanas
Ave ave satanas
Ave ave satanas
Ave ave satanas

I am the shadow - with the eyes, eyes of fire
I will fulfill your every - hellish desire
Come sit on this throne - here beside me and be mine
And we'll watch the flames get higher and higher and higher and

Ave ave satanas
Ave ave satanas
Ave ave satanas
Ave ave satanas

This is just the start dear friends
For i have come to claim revenge
My victims turning, running scared
You people better go and beware

Your weak god can not help you now

Come, we will play in the fire

Worship the sun
Worship no one
Worship the sun
Worship no one
Worship the sun
Worship no one

I love that line - "Your weak god can not help you now"....lovely!! All you stupid insecure religious morons - get on your knees and pray...

Funny....real good one.....



Pathetic I say....pathetic. The damned Americans put their noses where they dont belong - AGAIN. And they try something that they do best - sue somebody!!


Bike back

Well, well, finally my bike is back in shape. I had left it at the Enfield service point yesterday, not even able to explain to the owner what the problem was as he was so busy. The guy is so good that he knew that there is a problem, realised where it is and then made it alright. I had also asked for a a water wash and now, the bike is as good as new. There seems to be no problems with the gear-shifting and the engine note also sounds really good. Thank god or whoever!!

But we had a problem getting back from office last night on Anwins bike. He had the same problem where the bike would die after moving for some distance. We really think that it must be the petrol since we filled up petrol from the same bunk and we had the same problem on the bike. Now, I really want to burn down that pump. Anyone interested in joining me??

Back after training

Well, I hated training on the first day. Was worse on the second day, but finally found it so good even tho' I did not understand too much. But I tell you, it was worth it.

So after training was over on saturday, me and Karthik came to office to check emails and do some work. Then only did I come to realise that I am to do some work starting monday that I hate doing. This pissed me off so much that I was in a bad mood for the whole week. And to top it all, my bike started giving me some starting problems and I was not able to shift gears properly.

But back to work and I wish I was in training!!..
