[www.keralites.net] Khatte-mitten khabhrain from around the world for 6/8/13


Later that day, walking in the park, mother and son saw a pregnant woman sitting on a bench. The four-year-old considered her gravely for a minute, then spoke to her saying, "Uh-oh… I know what you've been doing."
Weird world…
Woman saves man by holding on to his boxers…
This is a case of holding on to one's end, quite literally. Ling Su, a Chinese woman, saved her husband Wang Li's life by holding on to his boxer shorts, when he was about to fall six floors down outside his apartment block in Changchun, northern China. A passerby said, "We heard a shout and screaming and there he was dangling from the window with his wife hanging onto his pants. She got a stronger hold on his leg and screamed for help.
China's heat wave brings 'dead' man back to life..
A street vendor's ploy to fake his own death for financial gain was busted after the heat in Central China's Hubei Province p[roved too much for him to bear.
A group of men had gathered with a gurney carrying the 'dead' man in Wuhan on Saturday, demanding compensation for the supposed beating of their fellow vendor by urban management workers. Over 300 onlookers and 80 police officers also gathered at the scene. However, the vendor playing dead under a white sheet sprang up to quaff a bottle of water, saying: "it's too hot. I can't bear it anymore." He and two others were then detained.
11-year-old UK girl brainier than Einstein.
An 11-yer-old UK schoolgirl has achieved the highest possible score of 162 on an IQ test, making her brainer than Stephen Hawking and Albert Einstein.
Tongue very much in cheek…
Tweet of the day: @Lindsaypereira "If Air India's stewardesses go on strike, many believe the airline may actually attract more passengers."
(Me: Lolz! According to a recent ToI report, most of the stewardesses – yani ki a euphemism, mostly for airhostesses, who should look slim n trim, are over-weight and over-aged, not fit for in-flight duties and should be 'grounded'.)
Line Maro (Pick-up line)
Damn, if being sexy was a crime, you'd be guilty as charged!
(Me: hmmm. I could cite at least one example…)
When one paints an ideal, one does not need to limit one's imagination.
From the world of science…
Chew on a piece of raw onion for three minutes to relieve yourself of tooth decay pain.
Remember to take deep breaths. The human body is designed to release 70 percent of its toxins through breathing.
Long work hours linked to depression.
Researchers have discovered that employees who worked long hours (at least 60 per week) and had high job demands were at higher risk of depression. Workers who suffered this were 15 times more likely to have depression.
(Me: That's why India's babus take things very, very, very easy…!)
A truism for all time to come…
He who rejects change is the architect of decay. The only human institution which rejects progress is the cemetery" – Harold Wilson.
(Me: Many in our country continue to asininely hold to the anachronistic saying, Old's Gold)
Hindustan Times survey…
Gen X wants dictator 'to get things done'.
(In the country democracy has come to mean just holding gigantic elections periodically costing thousands of crores; it is has failed to deliver. The root cause is our deep-rooted casteism with one caste or the other of the myriad castes holding sway in every constituency, be it parliamentary, assembly or the local civic body. The major political parties themselves field candidates in a constituency based on his winnability depending upon his/her caste and how much the casteman can spend on his election. We often hear the well-worn cliché that the educated class neither field themselves in any constituency nor vote. This isn't borne out by facts: the educated class being heavily outnumbered cannot, even if they contest, win any seat by themselves nor do their votes materially affect the outcome in a constituency. Due to the serious inherent drawbacks and the pulls and pressures from every region, a strong and capable all-India leader can never rise)
The teacher was reading the story of the three Little Pigs to her class. She came to the part where the first pig was trying to accumulate the building materials for his home. He read, "… and so the pig went up to the man with a cart full of straw and said, 'Sir, may I have some straw to build my house?'" The teacher paused and asked the class, "And what do you think the man said?"
One little boy piped up, I think he said, 'Holy cow, a talking pig!"
