quake … ahem … earthquake
There was an earthquake yesterday. Rather a big one, or so it seems. Something like 7.6 on the Richter Scale. So I was in the house, minding my own business, actually troubling the dog (read whacking him with a newspaper) when he starts barking unnecesarily. So, I am like what is going on here??
Instantaneously, as if on cue stuff starts moving around arbitrarily. And by moving around, I mean moving around. The fan shakes a little, you can feel the vibrations in the floor. So, I say hmmm??? and then go about minding my own business i.e. whacking the dog with the newspaper.
Later on during the day while channel surfing (switching through the channels hoping to find HBO / Star Movies / ESPN etc) I happen to stop over at NDTV. Well they are going around saying that a big earthquake’s been going around the place. Lots of people dead all over everywhere.
And then it hits me. I have got the best earthquake prediction system there is (read blackie)). Course, I gotta refine it a little bit, because if there was an earthquake each time he barked there wouldn’t be much left of Delhi.
Anyway if anyone has any idea on how to patent “A canine based forward prediction mechanism for earthquakes”, please do tell me about it. I may even be favourably inclined towards sharing the royalties.
PS – Musharraf looks like a jackass. All he is doing is going around on Television and saying that he has some dumbass exam to pass, and begging for blankets. Now he is begging for helicopters. The next thing you know, he will be asking for a nuclear warhead.
PS1 – I wonder what happened to yacc and zulu
PS2 – how many people know what foo-bar means?
afaik foobar is the hax0r modification for fubar. Course it has other interpretations too.
musharaf .. yeah he sucks 😀
my experience was rather diff. sitting on the bed, i could feel some viberations undermyass .. i got confused .. what the hell, i wasnt even on alcohol. I took me some 10 seconds to realise thats its not me .. its the earth (for a change)
What happens when ur canine friend farts?
no idea …
Don’t you think that we could help the quake victims by starting a relief campaign at the IIIT rather than just bloggin about it.
May be collect some old clothes and stuff that might be useful to the people there.I remember there was a big hullaballoo about the Katrina two weeks before it arrived.
Why isn’t there no mail from the SLC or some authority about it?
i try to find something at google.com and take it on your site…thanks
