An amazing review of Hyundai i20. See some quotes below...

Quote:
Korean field Hyundai was digit of the most upbeat of automobile makers displaying its commodity at town and against every expectations really due this fact of chronicle among visions of downtrends and hopeless income revolving al around North USA and Europe.

The Asiatic chaebol had no inferior than sextet spanking newborn models on display, every of them creation familiarised and hour of them more essential to Bharat (and to Europe) as the Hyundai i20 supermini. Times Zigwheels was the prototypal to hit revealed the countenance of this firm newborn super reproduce but here it was for the prototypal instance in the flesh and hunting contemporarily modishness and fresh.
.....
Quote:
...In Bharat though, the Hyundai i20 module become with a 1.4-litre dohc 16-valve engine delivering 100PS at 5500rpm and a flourishing 137Nm of force at 4200rpm. However the allaluminium impureness 1248cc Kappa organisation as powers the Hyundai i10 could be the comic in the arrange because this organisation befittingly adjusted and intermeshed could be the artist noesis organisation primed to do effort in our door-handle to knob traffic. Hyundai is substance meet much an engine in aggregation and it trusty makes the correct noises on paper: a baritone dioxide emergence verify of meet 124g/km and render activity of 19.23 kmpl in the dweller compounded cycle....
Quote:
...
The petrol substance that we module move with in Bharat would be definitely higher than the toll at which HMIL sells the Getz but as HMIL’s managing administrator H S Lheem conversant me at Paris: “Ours is a crack creation substance and is not a affordable automobile to make.”
..
Lheem started making crack...and he also acknowledges that it is not affordable to make.

In fact that whole site is a big joke.

In school, teachers used to throw up their hands in frustration at some of my class mates, saying "please read the text book once in a while, else even if we give them to you for copying, you will not know where the answers are!!!".

Looks like one of those gentlemen (my ex-classmates) is now into writing auto reviews!!!

Edit:- Saw this in another page of that site.
Quote:
Delhi, Feb 09 2007: Hyundai is already cod to start a diesel help of their Getz automobile after this year. The consort has today said that they are feat to start a diesel Santro var. sometime incoming year.
Oh god!!!

The Hyundai review is what happens if you translate a whole page using Babelfish.

Once Mathai asked Kuttappan, "What is the secret behind your happy married life?"

Kuttappan said, "You should share responsibilities with due love and respect to each other.

Then absolutely there will be no problems."

"Can you explain?" asked Mathai.

Kuttappan said, "In my house, I take decisions on bigger issues where as my wife decides on smaller issues. We do not interfere in each other's decisions."
Still not convinced, Mathai asked Kuttappan "Give me some examples"

Kuttappan said, "Smaller issues like which car we should buy, how much amount to save, when to visit home town, which Sofa, air conditioner, refrigerator to buy, monthly expenses, whether to keep a maid or not etc are decided by my wife. I just agree to it"

Mathai asked, "Then what is your role?"

Kuttappan said, "My decisions are only for very big issues....

Like whether America should attack Iraq, whether Britain should lift sanction over Zimbabwe, whether to widen African economy, whether Sachin Tendulkar should retire etc. Do you know one thing, my wife NEVER objects to any of these".

That is the secret of our happy married life !!!

No offence ment to our own kuttapan in dallas

Got this in mail today -

[FONT=Times New Roman]There was a World wide survey of "Most Embarrassing Moment in human life"
The finale had the following three incidents....

Third Place
"It was the day before my eighteenth birthday. I was living at home,
but my parents had gone out for the evening, so I invited my
girlfriend over for a romantic night alone. As we lay in bed after
making love, we heard the telephone ringing downstairs. I suggested to
my girlfriend that I give her a piggy-back ride to the phone. Since we
didn't want to miss the call, we didn't have time to get dressed. When
we got to the bottom of the stairs, the lights suddenly came on and a
whole crowd of people yelled "SURPRISE!".

My entire family, aunts, uncles, grandparents, cousins and all of my
friends were standing there ! My girlfriend and I were frozen to the
spot in a state of shock and embarrassment for what seemed like an
eternity.
Since then, no-one in my family has planned a surprise party again.

Second Place
"While in line at the bank one afternoon, my kid decided to release
some pent-up energy and started to run amuck. I was finally able to
grab hold of her after receiving looks of disgust and annoyance from
other patrons. I told her that if she didn't start behaving herself
right now, she would be punished. To my horror, she looked me in the
eye and said in a voice just as threatening, "If you don't let me go
right now, I will tell Grandma that I saw you kissing Daddy's
pee-pee(dick) last night!".

The silence was deafening after this enlightening exchange. Even the
tellers stopped what they were doing! I mustered the last of my
dignity and walked out of the bank with my daughter in tow. The last
thing that I heard as the door closed behind me were the screams of
laughter.

And the Winner is...
This one actually happened at Harvard University in October last year.
In a biology class, the professor was discussing the high glucose
levels found in semen. A young female (freshman), raised her hand and
asked, "If I understand what you are saying, there is a lot of glucose
in male semen, as in sugar?" "That's correct." responded the
professor, going on to add much statistical data. Raising her hand
again, the sweet young thing asked, "Then why doesn't it taste
sweet?".

After a stunned silence, the whole class burst out laughing, the poor
girl turned bright red and as she realized exactly what she had
inadvertently said(or rather implied), she picked up her books without
a word and walked out of the class, and never returned.
However , as she was going out of the door, the professor's reply was
a classic. Totally straight- faced, he answered her question, "It
doesn't taste sweet because the taste-buds for sweetness are on the
tip of your tongue and not in the back of your throat!

Default Thirsty Snake

Having arrived at the edge of the river, the fisherman soon realized he had forgotten to bring any bait. Just then he happened to see a little snake passing by who had caught a worm.
The fisherman snatched up the snake and robbed him of his worm.

Feeling sorry for the little snake with no lunch, he snatched him up again and poured a little beer down his throat and went about his fishing.

An hour or so later the fisherman felt a tug at his pant leg. Looking down, he saw the same snake with three more worms in his mouth…

Default Painless Birth

A married couple goes to hospital together to have their baby delivered. When they arrive, the doctor says they have just taken delivery of a new machine which transfers a portion of the mother's pain to the father.

"Would you be willing to try it out?" asks the doctor.

"Yes of course," says the husband, who is very much a Sensitive New Age Guy.

As the woman goes into labor, the doctor sets the machine to 10 percent and asks the man if it hurts. "No, it's fine," he says. The doctor raises the setting to 20 per cent. "Still okay," says the man. The doctor gradually lifts the setting to 50 per cent. The husband closes his eyes and grits his teeth, but insists he can cope without any problem, so the doctor raises it gradually to 75 per cent.

"I can take it," says the husband. "Give me the full 100 per cent." So the doctor does, and the wife bears the baby with no pain at all.

The doctor goes off to write up the case for The Medical Journal, while the couple takes their baby home. On the doorstep they find the wife's tennis coach dead.
