Do the nEtAs of the G 20 Nations avoid this Charming Disney Prince -
just because they would cut a sorry figure when they are seen with him ?

I have seen a student collapsing after being hit by the cricket ball thrown by another a sports competition! I have read with horror the javelin piercing a boy's eye - just as he shoved and saved another boy from the path of the javelin. :(

Pluses and Minuses.

In Mathematics
(+1) + (+1) = +2.
(-1) + (-1) = -2.
(+1) + (-1) = 0.

In other words two pluses add up and so do two minuses too.
But a plus and minus cancel out when they are equal.

Why then does not a 'hypertension' (+) cancel out a 'hypothyroidism (-) ?

To cancel out each other the two factors must be equal and opposite.
But they must also act on the same point in opposite directions!

This is where Physics moves in :)

If the two equal and opposite factors (let us say forces for instance)
are not applied at the same point, the constitute a couple!

Can we understand better now why wedded people are always called a 'couple'?
Also why there s\are so many rotations due to the presence of a 'perfect couple'!

Hypertension (+) and Hypothyroidism (-) can never cancel out each other
- even if they are equal and opposite - since they constitute a perfect couple!

In mechanics, a couple refers to two parallel forces that are equal in magnitude, opposite in sense and do not share a line of action. A better term is force couple or pure moment. Its effect is to create rotation without translation, or more generally without any acceleration of the centre of mass. Wikipedia


There will be rotation without translation and acceleration at the center of the mass.
Is there any better way of expressing what goes on in every single home - all over the world.
If you doubt or object to this statement then your marriage was really made in Heaven -
when God was in really in a very good mood!

It is fool that gets angry.
A wise man will not.
He will not since
words can't hurt him!

A bit of fragrance always clings
to the hand that gives out roses.
You become happy when you
make the others feel happy!

True and lasting fame is never a gift of chance.
Any Success = Perspiration + Inspiration

Nothing was invented and perfected at the same time.
Man can think and evolve only in small steps - never in giant leaps!

Partnership with powerful people is never really safe.

It is far better to be convinced by words than blows.
But he who won't listen to words will receive the blows.

Beautiful or Pathetic???
Lolita Express - that which transported innocent young girls to make them fallen women!
Juvenile Island - there where the Sex Festival aka Orgy used to take place!
Sweetheart Deal - that which was eyewash to cover up the multiple rapes of underaged girls
Jail Term - that which allows the criminal 12 hours of freedom every day - free of any kind of supervision or restriction - to prey upon more girls and young women even while serving the sentence!
Money - that which was used to lure and expand the circle of victims to spin more money!
Yes truly the WHOLE THING just stinks! :(

He who knows nothing, has no doubts.
He who knows everything, also has no doubts.

It is the people with incomplete knowledge that get doubts.
And genuine Doubt is the first step in gaining knowledge.

The only competition worthy of a wise man is with himself.

Only the 'best' is 'good enough' for me.

The only way to get the best out of an argument is to avoid it, at all costs.

Least said...soonest mended.

Keep your mind always young. Your face will follow the suit.

A thinking mind is eternally young. So too the thinking brain!!!

40. Lolita

Lolita is a world famous novel by Vladimir Nabokov, first written in English and published in 1955, in Paris. Later it was translated to Russian and published in 1958 in New York.

The novel is famous for its controversial theme in which a middle aged man Humbert Humbert becomes obsessed worth a 12 year old Dolores Haze. The other names of Dolores are Dolly, Lolita, Lola and LO!

The plot of the novel is the story of Florence Sally Horner who was abducted from new Jersey in 1948 by a child molester. At the age of eleven, Sally stole a 5 cent note book in Camden, New Jersey, USA.

Frank La Salle, a 50 year old mechanic caught her stealing. He posed as an agent of FBI and threatened to send her ” to place for girls like you”. He abducted the girl and spent twenty one months traveling with her to different American states, holding her as a sex slave!

Several details of Sally Horner and Dolly Haze rhyme and seem to run almost parallel! Both Sally and Dolly were nice looking youngsters; both had widowed mother and both had brown hair. Lolita’s Florentine hands and breasts evoke the memory of “Florence” -the first name of Sally.

Copying La Salle, Humbert too terrorizes his victim. He even alludes to the case of Frank La Salle. Both Frank and Humbert take the girls to the different states of USA. Both the girls die very young. Sally dies in a car accident and Dolly dies during the child birth.

The appearances and names of the girls as the well as the plots are strikingly similar. No doubt the Lolita of Nabokov’s novel is Sally Horner of New Jersey.

I recognize a troubled soul - when I come across one.
It is not necessarily the ghost of a person dead and gone.
It might even be a person who is alive but hollow in the inside.
May God give Peace and Solace to these Living Dead! :(

Some men love to assault women, grab them, grope them, molest them, rape them or slit the throat.
When this in not possible they would seek other means of virtually attacking or belittling the unknown, unseen and imaginary foe! Well it sure does take all sorts of nitwits to fill up the world! :(

Worth reading everyday!

It is fool that gets angry.
A wise woman will not.
She will not since
words can't hurt her!

The hand that hands out roses takes on its fragrance.
The hand that flings mud takes on its 'fragrance'!
We look and smell like the things we give out!

An optimist transform his
difficulties into opportunities.

A pessimist transforms his
opportunities into difficulties.

Much of world's great happiness is overlooked...
because it does not cost you anything!

What is given out freely CAN'T be worth much! Right?

"பனை உருளை பனை உருளை
பனை அடி நடு நுனி உருளை."

வேகமாகப் பலமுறை சொல்லிப் பாருங்கள்.
வேகத்தடை வருகின்றதா இல்லையா என்று!

இதன் பொருள் என்ன என்று சிந்தித்திருந்தால்
முன்னமேயே தெரிந்திருக்குமோ என்னவோ?

காலம் கனிந்தது இன்று தான்!
கருத்துப் புரிந்ததும் இன்று தான்!

பனை மரம் உருண்டையாக இருக்கின்றது.
இது எல்லோருமே அறிந்த உண்மையே!

பனையின் அடியும் உருண்டை,
பனையின் நடுவும் உருண்டை,
பனையின் நுனியும் உருண்டை.
பயன் என்னவோ இதனால்?

பனையால் நேராக விழவும் முடியும் ( topple down)
பனையால் உருண்டு வரவும் முடியும் (roll down )
பனையால் புரண்டு வரவும் முடியும் (tumble down )

பனை எப்படி வந்தாலுமே அழிவுகள்
பலவற்றை அதனால் ஏற்படுத்த முடியும்.

"பனை மரத்தின் கீழே நின்று
பாலைக் குடிக்காதே!" என்று
மறை மொழிகள் பகர்வதின்
மறை பொருள் இதுதானோ?
