Top 10 Questions of the Week

Sunday, October 21, 2007

10. Why is the nail cutter always misplaced?

9. Why does the song, which took almost 45 minutes to download on your dial-up internet connection, turn out to have a quality inferior than your 15 years old tape recorder?

8. Why does the ice-cream/juice/salan/fit-any-sort-of-food-here has to fall on your white shirt?

7. Why is it so difficult to realize that the professor is talking about cache performance when he says, “If I have 5 misses, what is the penalty of each miss?”

6. Should I be worried that googling “nadia khan birthday special” directs people to this blog?

5. Should I be flattered that “top ten handsome of the world” is doing the same?

4. Why does an Apple MacBook Pro cost a hefty USD$1,999?

3. Am I the only one who thinks that telephone lines/mobile phone networks should provide the facility of electrocuting those callers who after hearing a “hello” respond with a “Who are you?”?

2. Why is the Earth round and not flat (so that we could push so many people off its edge)?

1. Does any of our so-called leaders give a damn?

My Answers to the Top 10 Questions
[do all questions carry equal marks?]

10. Because you can’t find it?

9. Shouldn’t you be thankful that your player could play it!?

8. Because you always forget to wear the white bib!

7. Because during the lecture, you are thinking about the misses in the classroom and not cache! :P

6. No. We all need human traffic. SO what if they are fans of Nadia Khan!

5. Wow! Be flattered. Be very flattered!

4. Because it does not cost USD$2,000?

3. I suppose. Or I’ll be dead. :D

2. The Earth is round because it’s not flat. The Earth is not flat because it is round.

1. No. Sigh.

No One: Okay, I am just flattered. And globalization has turned the Earth into a village, not turned it flat. Although it would be cool to send a DIE signal over the web. To our leaders, for instance.

Hina: You, young lady, just passed with flying colours! Here are my comments to go with your result card…

10. Yes and no. Go figure!
9. No, I’d rather not listen to it and waste precious clock cycles.
8. White bib, or no white bib, the food always targets the white shirt.
7. While I may sometimes think about misses during the lecture, let me clear that those are not the ones present in the classroom. They are off-limits!
6. Hmm. Okay. But still…
5. Okay, I am very flattered!
4. Actually, it can cost as high as USD$2,799 (and even beyond). But the question remains, why?!
3. Et tu, Hina?!
2. The only answer where you got the lowest marks. *shakes head*
1. Sigh indeed.

‘And globalization has turned the Earth into a village, not turned it flat.’–> thats so old school…you might want to read up on all the new BS on…try reading ‘Managing Cultural Differences’ by Robert T. Moran…and he agrees with moi…the world indeed has gone flat now…but whatever…village or not…it has become smaller…tahh


Oct 24, 2007 at 11:14 am

You mark me unfairly on question 2, sir. :(


Oct 25, 2007 at 10:33 am

No One: Kiddo, if by ‘flat’ Robert T. Morgan means that it’s possible to push people off the edge of the earth, then I can agree that globalization has made the earth flat. Otherwise, I don’t care how small the world has become!

Hina: Okay, let me rephrase: that was the only question in which you got less marks. And don’t be such a Hermione; you have already passed with flying colours! :P

10, 9, 8: Refer to the latest revision of Murphy’s laws.

7: Because whatever the penalties may be, cache misses aren’t as much fun (read “headache”) as “5 misses”?

6: Yeah, you should! Gives the impression that you’re a Nadia Khan fan…

5: No comment!

4: Because Apple is “oh, so fad!”…useless noob piece of crap!

3: Err…yeah! Who ARE you, btw?

2: The world isn’t flat, because…err…..because then…errr….if it was then….err…..*scratches head*….well it just isn’t! :|

1: Oh yes, they do give a damn…what would they loot if there was no Pakistan? Who they rule and exploit and lie to if there were no Pakistanis?

*start teacher accent*
Class, we have another student passing with flying colours: Fallen Angel!
*end teacher accent*

Here’s the result card:

10, 9, 8. I knew someone would mention the Murphy’s law sooner or later. (There must be some other law as well that should constitute the use of Murphy’s law. Hmm.)
7. Who thought headaches could be fun, eh? Wait, they aren’t.
6. Worry-mode: ON!
5. Every top student has their one question in which they get less marks. *shakes head*
4. Man, you are right. Apple is so cashing its MacBook’s fad.
3. All right. That does it. I am off to invent that electrocuting facility myself!
2. Yeah. It just isn’t. (You got marks only for your oh-so-expressive confusion.)
1. You just made an impressive point. Or were you being sarcastic? :???:

@No One:
Hey, stop telling people I’m dead :P …I wonder if Saadat is referring to “Beatrix Kiddo” when he calls you “Kiddo”…hmmm :D

So when are you gonna kill your Bill?

Sigh! Sarcasm just isn’t the same when written down…the “fun = headache” answer and the “leaders” answer were supposed to be sarcastic (extra emphasis on “supposed to be”) :D

As for Apple cashing in on fads, its not just with the MacBook, its the same thing with the iPhone…a $500 over-hyped phone, locked to one carrier, tries to be a smart phone but provides no developer API support for native applications (not until January anyway)…I’ll stick to my Windows Mobile phone for now, thankyou very much! I wish someone would release a true Linux smartphone based on either GreenPhone or OpenMoko :S

@ Fallen: oh alright! fine!!! I will stop telling people your’e dead…though I do miss your poetry…come back soooooooon!!!!…anyhow..if Saadat calls me “kiddo” because of Beatrix Kiddo then thats sooo hot!…I would love to be her and kill my bill…tahhh


Nov 6, 2007 at 8:57 am

Fallen Angel: It’s fun to answer sarcasm with a sense of goofy-ness, eh? :D And yes, iPhone is so not for me either. In fact, I doubt I’ll be needing any smartphone anytime soon. A Linux smartphone will be cool though! (Any prospective entrepreneurs listening?)

No One: No, Kiddo, I don’t call you that because of Beatrix Kiddo, because I just can’t imagine you swinging a Hattori Hanzo sword, or executing the Five Point Palm Exploding Heart Technique. I call you Kiddo, because well, the word just popped into my mind and seemed to suit you :P

Awwwwwwww *hugs* thats a cute nickname for me! my dad calls me the “problem child” haha…in reference to the movie…so ‘Kiddo’ is a refreshing change…:D…tahh


Nov 12, 2007 at 11:10 pm

A post. My kingdom for a post.


Nov 28, 2007 at 9:48 pm

Some of the laws like Murphy’s getting repeated in life?? :)


Nov 30, 2007 at 8:39 pm

No One: Can’t really argue with your dad. He knows his daughter best!

Bhaijan: Can’t refuse such an offer now, can I? (Even if the said post comes after 18 days!)

Asma: Oh yes, they are!


Dec 9, 2007 at 1:14 am

the world IS flat. Read book of same name by Thomas L. Friedman…NYT bestseller. ;)


Dec 9, 2007 at 7:42 am

A: Yes, my bro is reading it these days… will get my hands on it soon. But you see, I don’t care if the world has gone flat, I am talking about the Earth, which is still a geoid

But who knows, maybe a virtual push off the flat world’s edge could do. (By the way, please excuse the links: I just took an exam about the whole geodesic mumbo jumbo last week.)
