As I have matured.....
've learned that you cannot make someone love you. All you can do is stalk them and hope they panic and give in.
I've learned that one good turn gets most of the blankets.
I've learned that no matter how much I care, some people are just jackasses.
I've learned that it takes years to build up trust, and it only takes suspicion, not proof, to destroy it.
I've learned that whatever hits the fan will not be evenly distributed.
I've learned that you shouldn't compare yourself to others - they are more screwed up than you think.
I've learned that depression is merely anger without enthusiasm.
I've learned that it is not what you wear; it is how you take it off.
I've learned that you can keep vomiting long after you think you're finished.
I've learned to not sweat the petty things, and not pet the sweaty things.
I've learned that ex's are like fungus, and keep coming back.
I've learned age is a very high price to pay for maturity.
I've learned that I don't suffer from insanity, I enjoy it.
I've learned that we are responsible for what we do, unless we are celebrities.
I've learned that artificial intelligence is no match for natural stupidity.
I've learned that 99% of the time when something isn't working in your house, one of your kids did it.
I've learned that there is a fine line between genius and insanity.
I've learned that the people you care most about in life are taken from you too soon and all the less important ones just never go away. And the real pains in the *** are permanent.

And u say u hav problems.......


Once two men sat in a bar drinking. The first one said to the other ,"I
have a hell lot of family problems." The second one said ,"I'll tell
you mine. I married a widow having a young daughter. my father married
my daughter and so my father became my son-in-law and I became my
father's
father-in-law. My daughter is my mother and my wife my grandmother.
More problems occured when I had a son. My son is my father's brother
and so he my uncle. Situations turned worse when my father had a son.
Now
my father's son i.e. my brother is my grandson. Ultimately, I have
become my own grand father and I am my own grandson.
And you say you have family problems".

Talking Rudolph the Red......

One day, a Russian couple are walking down the street, trying to find some black bread to go with there cabbage soup, when the husband says, "Did you just feel rain there?"
"No, I thought it felt more like snow", replied his wife and, as these things go in married life, it developed into an argument.
Just then, a communist party official walked by. "Lets ask Rudolph if it is officially raining or snowing today", suggested the woman.
So they asked. "Today it is officially raining", said the Rudolph, and walked away.
"I still thought it was snow", moaned the mans wife, to which he replied," Rudolph the Red knows rain dear!"

Note the year of this one. Was a nice, funny song.


Many, many years ago when I was 23
I was married to a Wider who was purty as can be
This Wider had a grown-up daughter who had hair of red
My father fell in love with her and soon they two were wed
This made my dad my son-in-law and changed my very life
For my daughter was my mother cause she was my father's wife
To complicate the matter even though it brought me joy
I soon became the father of a bouncing baby boy

I'm my own grampa,
I'm my own grampa
It sounds funny I know
But it really is so
I'm my own grampa

My little baby then became a brother-in-law to dad
And so became my uncle though it made me very sad
For if he was my uncle then that also made him brother
Of the Wider's grown up daughter who of course was my step-mother

My father's wife then had a son who kept them on the run
And he became my granchild for he was my daughters son
My wife is now my mother's mother and it makes me blue
Because although she is my wife she's my grandmother too

I'm my own grampa,
I'm my own grampa
It sounds funny I know
But it really is so
I'm my own grampa

Oh if my wife is my grandmother then I'm her grandchild
And every time I think of it, it nearly drives me wild
For now I have become strangest case you ever saw
As husband of my own grandmother I'm my own grampa

I'm my own grampa,
I'm my own grampa
It sounds funny I know
But it really is so
I'm my own grampa

Talking PJ of the Day :D

Schumi and Alonso are in a desert.
Evening comes, they set up their tent.
Both go to sleep.
Alonso wakes up in the middle of the night.
Schumi isn't in the tent.
He can hear something coming from outside the tent.
Alonso peeps out and sees Schumi running around the tent like crazy, a big lion after him...
Alonso: Run faster, he's gonna catch you!

OK chal I'm gona type out a joke i heard many years ago

Once this guy wakes up and comes down to the dining room and his wife looks at him and says "OMG! What happened to you" He says. "why? I feel absolutely fine" She says "You look awful, better sit, don't go to work today"

He gets annoyed, because he feels fantastic. Leaves for office, as soon as he enters, his secretary says "What happened sir? You look terrible!!!"
He says "but i feel fine, what is going on, what is everyone talking about" Looks in the mirror.

"I do look bad today" thought he.

Toh, he went to the doctor.
Doctor saw him, one look and he said "OMG!! You'd better ie down you look AWFUL!!"

"But i feel fine doctor!! In fact i feel great! What's wrong?"

"I don't know myself, let me refer to the big fat book all doctors must refer to"

(reading) "Look good, feel fine, no

Look good, feels terrible, no no no

AAAh Here is is Looks terrible, feels fantastic - YOU'RE A VAGINA!"

  3. I collided with a stationary truck coming the other way.
  4. In my attempt to kill a fly, I drove into a telephone pole.
  5. I had been shopping for plants all day and was on my way home. As I reached an intersection, a hedge sprang up, obscuring my vision and I did not see the other car.

Talking Cricket Explained

Cricket explained
You have two sides one out in the field and one in.
Each man thatís in the side thatís in goes out and when heís out he comes in and the next man goes in until heís out.
When they are all out the side thatís out comes in and the side thatís been in goes out and tries to get those coming in out.
Sometimes you get men still in and not out.
When both sides have been in and out including the not outs, THATíS THE END OF THE GAME !
HOWZAT !!!!!

The cricketer and the psychiatrist
The cricketer was visiting the psychiatrist.
Cricketer: ĎItís terrible. I canít score runs, Iím a terrible bowler, and I canít hold a catch. What can l do?
Doctor: ĎGet another job.í
Cricketer: ĎI canít. Iím playing for England tomorrow!í

Devils versus Angels cricket match
The Devils challenged the Angels to a game of cricket.
ďBut weíve got all the cricketers,Ē said the Angels.
ďYes. But weíve got all the umpires!Ē exclaimed The Devils

I agree with you that milk powder is no substitute for actual milk. Similarly old milk is no substitute for fresh milk.

So how about having a cow and a decoction maker in each building, so that we can get a nice flavoured coffee.

No need to buy the vending macines as CCD will provide them on loan I guess. Now coming to the goats/cows/buffaloes we have to purchase them, now the question is how many???? Should all building have one of each or should one building have only one animal?/? That is the point we have to decide on.

As far as the plantation goes I think the golf course is used no more, so we can have a tea and coffee plantation over there.

After all its about tea or coffee so we need the main ingredient fresh!!!!! isnt it????????

Guys ............. It was started with cow. Then people added buffalos and goats to the list. Check if anything else is missed out ( if its milk is useful or it is useful in some other way) before sending the suggestion to the concerned dept / authority.

Will the goats, buffaloes, cows and other animals have to follow the dress code ????????? And will they have permanent ID card???????/ After all security was questioned by one of us!

I think having ID cards will help ensure better security. + the dress code will make them look more professional

Yes, 'Photo ID Card' is necessary!

Or we would need dogs if the animals look too similar for security guys to identify.

Baggage check is not in question right now, but may be some day, if we have plans to allow Kangaroos for some reason.

Yes thats true.

As cars or two wheelers are no more allowed inside the campus and the golf carts are only for the clients the ones who do not know cycling can use kangaroos for quick transportations from one place to another within the campus.

Yes we need to have very strict selection criteria so that only quality cows/buffaloes/camels/goats/sheep/llama/elk/elephants etc. are recruited for milking.

1) Should have consistently high 'milkademic' performance. Should have given more than or equal to 10 litres/day in the past.
2) Should have high 'dungamatic' quotient. Should not have passed dung on the premises more than 3.4 times per 1000 days.
3) Should be good team players and not kick the milkman while milking.
4) Should meet deadlines and allow milking at late-hours and night-shifts too for the foreign clients.
5) Should have no communication skills else can disturb the employees by ba-ba/moo-moo etc.
