Some true facts about girls

If you praise her,
she thinks you are lying
If you don't,
you are good for nothing

If you agree to all her likes,
you are a wimp
If you don't,
you are not understanding

If you visit her often,
she thinks you are boring
If you don't,
she accuses you of double-crossing

If you are well dressed,
she says you are a playboy
If you don't,
you are a dull boy

If you are jealous,
she says it's bad
If you don't,
she thinks you do not love her

If you attempt a romance,
she says you didn't respect her
If you don't,
she thinks you do not like her

If you are a minute late,
she complains it's hard to wait
If she is late,
she says that's a girl's way

If you visit another man,
you're not putting in "quality time"
If she is visited by another woman,
"oh it's natural, we are girls"

If you kiss her,
you are not a gentleman
If you don't,
you are not a man

If you fail to help her in crossing the street,
you lack ethics
If you do,
she thinks it's just one of men's tactics for

If you stare at another woman,
she accuses you of flirting
If she is stared by other men,
she says that they are just admiring

If you talk,
she wants you to listen
If you listen,
she wants you to talk

In short:

So simple, yet so complex......
So weak, yet so powerful.........
So confusing, yet so desirable.
So damning, yet so wonderful

Are you a prostitute or a software consultant...

1. You work very odd hours.

2. You are paid a lot of money to keep your client happy.

3. You are paid well but your pimp gets most of the money.

4. You spend a majority of your time in a hotel room.

5. You charge by the hour but your time can be extended for the right price.

6. You are not proud of what you do.

7. Creating fantasies for your clients is rewarded.

8. It's difficult to have a family.

9. You have no job satisfaction.

10. If a client beats you up, the pimp just sends you to another client.

11. You are embarrassed to tell people what you do for a living.

12. People ask you, "What do you do?" and you can't explain it.

13. Your family hardly recognizes you at reunions (at least the reunions you attend.)

14. Your friends have distanced themselves from you and you're left hanging with only other "professionals."

15. Your client pays for your hotel room plus your hourly rate.

16. Your client always wants to know how much you charge and what they get for the money.

17. Your pimp drives nice cars like Mercedes or BMWs.

18. Your pimp encourages drinking and you become addicted to drugs to ease the pain of it all.

19. You know the pimp is charging more than you are worth but if the client is foolish enough to pay it's not your problem.

20. When you leave to go see a client, you look great, but return looking like hell (compare your appearance on Monday AM to Friday PM).

21. You are rated on your "performance" in an excruciating ordeal.

22. Even though you get paid the big bucks, it's the client who walks away smiling.

23. The client always thinks your "cut" of your billing rate is higher than it actually is, and in turn, expects miracles from you.

24. When you deduct your "take" from your billing rate, you constantly wonder if you could get a better deal with another pimp.

25. Everyday you wake up and tell yourself, "I'm not going to be doing this stuff the rest of my life."

Why Microsoft shouldn't make cars

At a recent computer expo, Bill Gates reportedly compared the computer industry with the auto industry and stated: "If GM had kept up with technology like the computer industry has, we would all be driving twenty-five dollar cars that got 1000 miles to the gallon."

In response to Bill's comments/General Motors issued a press release stating the following: "If GM had developed technology like Microsoft, we would be driving cars with the following characteristics:

1. For no reason whatsoever, your car would crash twice a day.

2. Every time they repainted the lines on the road, you would have to buy a new car.

3. Occasionally, your car would die on the freeway for no reason, and you would accept this, restart, and drive on.

4. Occasionally, executing a maneuver such as a left turn would cause your car to shut down and refuse to restart;
in which case you would have to reinstall the engine.

5. Only one person at a time could use the car, unless you bought 'Car95' or 'CarNT.' Then you would have to buy
more seats.

6. Macintosh would make a car that's powered by the sun, more reliable, five times as fast, and twice as easy to drive, but would only run on five percent of the roads.

7. The oil, water, temperature and alternator warning lights would be replaced by a single 'general car fault' warning light.

8. New seats would force everyone to have the same butt size.

9. The airbag system would say 'Are you sure?' before going off.

10. Occasionally, for no reason whatsoever, your car would lock you out and refuse to let you in until you simultaneously lifted the door handle, turned the key and grabbed hold of the radio antenna.

11. GM would require all car buyers to also purchase a deluxe set of Rand McNally road maps, even though they neither need them nor want them. Attempting to delete this option would immediately cause the car's performance to diminish by 50 per cent or more.

12. Every time GM introduced a new model, car buyers would have to learn how to drive all over again because none of the controls would operate in the same manner as the old car.

13. You'd press the 'Start' button to shut off the engine.

Sardarjis mom writes a letter...

Dear beta,

I am in a well here and hoping you in the same well there. I'm writing this letter slowly, because I know you cannot read fast.

We don't live where we did when you left home. Your dad read in the newspaper that most accidents happen 20 miles away from home, so we moved 20 miles.

I won't be able to send the address as the last Sardar who stayed here took the house numbers with them for their new house, so they wouldn't have to change their address. Hopefully, by next week we will be able to take our earlier address plate here, so that our address will remain same too.

This place is really nice. It even has a washing machine situated right above the commode. I am not sure it works too well. Last week I put in 3 shirts, pulled the chain and haven't seen them since.

The weather here isn't too bad. It rained only twice last week. The first time it rained for 3 days and second time for 4 days.

The coat you wanted me to send you, your Aunt sait it would be a little too heavy to send in the mail with all the metal buttons, so we cut them off and put them in the pocket.

Your father has another job. He has 500 men under him. He is cutting the grass at the cemetery. By the way, I took bahu to our club's poolside. The manager is badmash. He told her that two piece swimming suit is not allowed in this club. We were confused as to which piece should we remove?

Your sister had a baby this morning. I haven't found out whether it is a girl or a boy, so I don't know whether you are an Aunt or Uncle.

Your uncle, Jetinder fell in a nearby well. Some men tried to pull him out, but he fought them off bravely and drowned. We cremated him and he burned for 3 days.

Your best friend Balwinder is no more. He died trying to fulfill his fathers last wishes. His father had wished to be buried in the sea after he died. And your friend died while in the process of digging a grave for his father.

There isn't much more news this time. Nothing much has happened.

Love Mom.

P.S.: Beta, I was going to send you some money but by the time I realized, I had already sealed off this letter. :

Kaun Banega Crore Pati claims its first victim!

Didn't want to open a topic, but wanted to share this. UNBELIEVABLE AND SAD!!!!!

New Delhi- The tremendously popular TV game show,"Kaun Banega Crore
claimed its victim in the capital. Mrs Neelam Arora, utterly disgusted
her husband's inability to answer the simplest of questions, divorced
immediately after the end of the show.

The entire event has shaken the
capital to the core and has left the local populace in a state of daze.
Neelam Arora, when contacted, was all fire and fury. "How can you stay
married to a dumb brick who cannot answer even the first 1000 Rupees
question? Even a 6 year old can answer such questions, but my husband,
mean, my ex-husband *%$#@&*(unprintable) couldn't do it.
That's why; I called a lawyer immediately and filed divorce papers."
also added that all her friends and relatives supported her move.
She also dismissed the suggestion that her husband, for motives best
to him, could have deliberately flunked the question. Mr. Pankaj Arora,
property dealer in one of the colonies of East Delhi, was happy when he
the news from the Star TV network that he had got selected, one among
millions, for participating in the popular show and he considered
lucky to be so chosen. He was also told to bring his wife along to the
studios at Mumbai where the game shows were to be hosted by Mr Amitabh
Bachhan. Winning a crore was hardly in the mind of Mr Arora and all Mr
Pankaj Arora wanted to do there was to gape at his idol and may be he
thought he could try to sell him a few of the plots of his clients to
Amitabh at a small tidy margin. But Mrs Arora was made of sterner
Mrs Neelam Arora, ever the ambitious wife, now took charge of her
husband. She hired the best tutor from Sachdev Tutorials, made him
the countries and capitals in the world, currencies of different
names of different states,rivers,towns in the country etc.
After 3 weeks of gruelling schedule of cramming, Mr Arora and Mrs Arora
confidently embarked on their journey to Mumbai, little knowing that
game show was to change their lives forever. Mr Arora was one among the
hopefuls selected for the 'fastest finger first' event.
Amitabh appeared in flesh and blood and Mr Pankaj Arora, whose lifetime
ambition, was to see his childhood hero in person, felt a sense of
fulfillment and pressed some buttons in a hurry. Mr Arora couldn't
it! Mrs Neelam Arora felt like a mother whose favourite kid had won the
baby show. Not only had he given correct answers, but he had done so
before others could begin!
There was a hubbub around the auditorium as Mr Pankaj Arora gingerly
the seat from Amitabh for everyone was convinced that history was going
be made that day. There was suspense in the air and the audience could
money floating all around them. Amitabh Bachhan started the show by
benignly at the nervous Mr Arora, the kind of smile he would give to a
investor, clapped his hands and read out the question. "Mr Pankaj
yehi hai aap ka pehla sawaal. Who wrote 'Valmiki Ramayan'? The choices
A. Tulsidas B. Ramanand Sagar C. B R Chopra D. Valmiki?" Mr Pankaj
very promptly said, "Ramanand Sagar!". He had not forgotten the days
when he
used to get up early on Sundays solely to watch the epic. Amitabh again
smiled the benign smile, cajoled him to use his lifeline, audience poll
etc., but Mr Pankaj Arora, like a true blue property dealer, didn't
from his position. He later told everyone sobbingly that he wanted to
preserve the lifelines for using them after touching the 25 lac mark
commisserated with him and told a shocked Mr Arora that his answer was
wrong. The pin-drop silence that followed immediately was only to be
by loud angry shriek from a female, that evidently from a female, who
been done in by her husband.
She shouted immediately, "Is there a lawyer in the house?".
Before the pandemonium that broke out could settle in, Mr Arora and Mrs
Arora had parted ways as husband and wife. This event has caused great
sensation among the community of TV viewers and the effect has been
among the chronic followers of this game show. Whether this
'wife-divorcing-husband -for-flunking-the-first- question' event, will
away all husbands from the show or pull them with magnetic attraction
greatest TV game show ever, only time alone can tell - Agency news
