Lost in translation

I'm currently in US (Tucson,Arizona). For some reason (Financial actually) I only get free channels in my hotel room. If you have ever been stuck with Doordarshan during a cricket match you know you can't switch channels and thus end up watching the Ads too (which are some times more entertaining)

Another thing (can be called as culture shock) is the way medication is peddled (sorry advertised) here on T.V. they even have medication for the Restless Leg Syndrome.

Another thing is the disclaimer at the end of the Ads....I don't want to specify any names so here are the list of "side effects" of one of the be fair they actually mention most of these in the ad!!

Disclaimer: This post has no medical value (or any other value for that matter) and may cause effects on either your left or the right side, there usually are no effects on the Inside but may lead to varied facial changes on the outside....)

Trivia: Did you know that irrespective of the aircraft altitude (in flight) the shadow cast by it is of the same size!!

It's all about the money....

For the first time in my life I wish I made more money...Bob Dylan playing 20 miles from where I stay and I can't afford the good seats :(

Of death by life...

You slide into the water, the hair on your body stick to you like a baby sticks to his mother.

The water tries it's best to push you out. You are violating it's space. You push against the walls to stick to stay "grounded".

You block the source and the water is calmer now. You slide in further, out of choice. It is up to your neck now.

The water covers your ears, impairs your hearing of the outside world. You can no longer hear the radio, the TV, the room service, the phone.

You can hear yourself as clearly as you ever could. Your heartbeat, Your hands sticking to the walls, the sound of you gulping.

The water hasn't reached your mouth yet. Somehow you can taste it at the base of your tongue.

You are completely immersed now, all you can feel is you. All you can see is the stagnation.

It is surprising that water can burn your lungs so bad, when it is supposed to put out the fire.

You don't scream, just lay there, lay there and wait.

The only thing outside of you that you are still aware of is this ray of light, from somewhere above you... but there was no light here .....

And you stare into the light, and sleep with your eyes open...

Amidst this huge IPhone orgy here in the US of A....EVEN in Tucson, here is what is not so cool about the Iphone

One good thing the IPhone did was to take Mz Hilton out of the news.....well for a few seconds at least.
