Aren’t Scientists amazing people?
I like the scientists a lot. In fact I love them. They are indeed special people. They don’t mince words and come straight to the point whether it is digestible or not. When I open the newspaper in the morning, I don’t go round looking for the latest news of what has happened in my country and the world during the previous 24 hours. Oh no!. That can wait. For me, it’s more important to get to know what the scientists have to say about life, space, Moon, Mars or anything under the sky. All of them may not be palatable at all. But then one has to read their stories because they always come out with some starling discoveries.
A few weeks back some space scientists did say that they would put a man on the Moon right from our space station in India very soon and that astronaut would go all over the Moon looking for signs that would make some earthlings live there. But pity. They have had two launching failures. So the man- Mission hasn’t materialized. But no harm working on the Moon exploring programme. Moon would be here all right and won’t fly away.Are you a volunteer for this reconnaissance work ? Well, I am, if you don’t mind, provided I get at least an one bedroom house with a living cum dining room, a nice toilet with a wash basin and a front garden. And I shall pay not more than one dollar for my future abode.
Next, our Tamil Nadu Government has suddenly turned more philanthropic – they have always been shelling out some freebie or the other, you know?
The next election is due within the next six months. What they have offered is a kind of bonanza and not exactly a freebie but a subsidized thing. A lap top computer for all students at ten dollars a piece. Isn’t that a great news? I wish I were a student! While I was revelling in it, prompt comes a ‘scientific’ news that lap tap may make you infertile. Women would indeed get frightened at this development. This would be so if they operate the LT from their laps. Why should anyone keep it on the lap to fiddle with it? Is it just because someone has named it ‘lap top’? Now that the scientific community has given us a great warning, all who possess an LT may kindly keep it on the table top or a stool and view it. OK?
This morning’s paper gave another piece of news. I don’t know whether I should classify it as a good one or a bad one. The news item in brief is: How to win over a woman?[I know, many college boys have their own modus operandi in this regard, but see how the scinetists look at that wonderful pastime] Their recommendation is, you are supposed to crack a joke, a joke at yourself. The woman sitting next to you then would feel tickled to death and fall for you. It’s as simple as that.
Don’t laugh at it friend. It’s 100 percent true. I mean the news item. One anthropologist scientist from an University in the USA (Name withheld for security reasons !) was at the job for 2 years and had interviewed thousands of women. The women surely must have confidentially told the scientist what they expect out of a man. Having considered and short listed all the answers, the anthropologist has announced conclusively that women get attracted to men who poke jokes at themselves.
You may like to try out this theory next time you are at a social party.
But don’t get mixed up with your “I’s” and “YOU’s”. If instead of I, you happen to say YOU, you are gone along with your joke. You not only would lose your girl friend but also receive tons of slaps. So, be careful, eh?
