Ask Google !!!

Just incase you are feeling very very vetti, you might like what you're going to read. But if you are feeling very intellectual, i suggest you click on the cross at the top right corner of the window. Or if you're just plain confused, this is going to be fun !!!

How often do we come across a situation where we are ruing about things you should have done or things you shouldn't have. How many of us now are caught between two opposite courses of action???

Ask google i say. You don't have to go to a counselor, no need to write to an agony aunt , just ask google.

How ??? Do like i say. Open google.com and:

Search for "I should have danced " , in quotes and look at the number of results - 7880

Now search for "I shouldn't have danced" and find the number of results - 240

That's it !! Go dance next time you have a chance to. Or even better, head out to a pub tonight and go do it !!! More people complain about not having danced than about having danced!!! So, go for it !!!

Who knows, you might turn out be the next Matt. You might have the most watched Youtube video to your credit. Yes, but you shouldn't forget lugging around your camera with you. This by the way is among the most watched youtube videos in the last one year!!! [Link]

Now suppose if you are thinking about something on this lines :

"I should have kissed her "- 23100
"I shouldn't have kissed her" - 2100
Go for it i say !!! Just do it !!! :)

"I should have got angry " -2
"I shouldn't have angry" - 251
Commonsense-Hence proved. But still, it's sad how often we get angry when we shouldn't have !!!
"I should have broken up" - 70
"I shouldn't have broken up" - 853

"I miss him " -1,490,000
"i don't miss him" - 20,600

" I miss her " - 1,330,000
"I don't miss her" - 17,500

The numbers are overwhelming !!!!There must be a story there: Value your dear ones. Don't let them go !!! You ARE going to miss them . I don't know what you are going to do but keep your relationships alive. Work on them. Treasure them. Value them. Enjoy them !!!

This prompts me to post one lovely song by Lisa Loeb - Stay !!!

These are just a very few of the hajaar crazy things i tried on google in the last couple of days, most of which cannot be posted here :P. Was fun !!!

Now you are wondering whether this post was actually worth the read.
Ok lets try.

"I should have read "- 193,000
"I shoudn't have read" - 192,000

Google says it doesn't really matter but still i think "should have read " won. So go try for yourself. Let your imagination take over and if you find anything interesting "you should" post it in the comments.

P.S : The background score for the "Matt" video is the Bengali song Praan and is an adaptation of Rabrindranath Tagore's "Stream of Life". How many of you expected the most heard song on youtube to be in Bengali ???

The Clean Shave

There's nothing called a " Clean Shave " !!!
Zeus faced that problem. Karl Marx faced it too. Now am facing it.
Every monday morning i wake up with two very important motives. One, to better by Snake score of 1100 and two, to reach office having had a clean shave. The first looks possible but somehow after hajaar attempts I've given up on the "clean shave". No matter how hard i try i just can't do it.

I do all that can be done. Nicely rinse the stubble, use an expensive foam and a more expensive funky looking three blade razor with a carbon alloy automatic tension arm and a rubber gasket for exceptional handling. I try reaching all corners of my face to make it just perfect.

Then i try to reach office in time with that jump in my stride, caressing my cheek as if to show people i had a clean shave and this happens:

Disha* : Hey PSR. Good morning.

I: Hi Disha , how's the weekend?? ( still fondly stroking my cheek)

Disha: Dude. You din shave properly. Still some hair on your cheeks and under your chin. Facial hair. Not good !!

I: C'mon that's not facial hair. That's just under-the-chin hair and cheek-hair.
And it was deliberate you see. The protagonist in that avante-garde spanish movie Adebayor van der vaart actually sports this style.

Disha: Ah? Which movie ?

I: Adebayor van der vaart.

Disha :Ohh. i've never heard of it.
("naturally u wouldn't have, because there's no such movie. Guhaahaha !!" to myself)

After i settle down in my seat and after a couple of minutes, Disha says something again. In a voice that can reach all possible corners of the office she asks :
"Oye the beard is supposedly the best source of hair in a hair transplant. Why don't you check out?? "
"Hmm oye Ambu. Disha is telling you something"
"I'm telling you"
" ohh . i thought..ok...2 mins..someone's calling" and i escape the embarrassment.

All because of the unshaven "facial hair".Another unsuccessful monday. Not once , not twice. It happens always. There's always more hair under the chin. There's always room for improvement and more room for embarrasing questions, unless you give up and decide to have a beard like the Zeus or Karl Marx or Osho .Will someone teach me the zen of perfect shaving or do we atleast now have a new model of the Mach3 ? I need a Mach 23. Dammit !!!!

Update: I think i've something interesting lined up . Keep an eye on Know More Nonsense for the next few days :P :)
