Adultery is not a crime here, it’s a dish!

Kurt Vonnegut — author of novel Hocus Pocus — said: “My own feeling is that if adultery is wickedness then so is food. Both make me feel so much better afterward.” You can openly enjoy adultery here as adultery is not a crime in this restaurant, it’s a dish.  ‘Chicken for adultery’ and ‘For adultery […]

Today is 10/11/12!

Numerologists say sequential dates and times hold special significance. Now that we are more than a decade safely beyond Y2K and secure in our knowledge that the big calendar switch didn’t incite the collapse of the modern world, we can relax a bit and enjoy some of the cooler quirks that come along with living […]

basirhat.com

Dot com is generally associated with virtual sites. The domain names, inter alia, end with .com. During my recent visit to Basirhat in West Bengal, I came across a banner with “Basirhat Dot Com” displayed on it. It’s not a website, but a club of local boys displaying banner for their Kali puja (worship of […]

Mickey Mouse on Mercury — a nice pareidolia

The image below is probably familiar to everyone. This particular Mickey Mouse impression, however, has been caught on planet Mercury by NASA’s Messenger spacecraft. This particular crater configuration is in Mercury’s south, near a crater named Magritte. “The shadowing helps define the striking ‘Mickey Mouse’ resemblance, created by the accumulation of craters over Mercury’s long […]

Elderly woman injured in hospital told to call ambulance!

A hospital would seem the safest place to get hurt, but that assumption proved false for 82-year-old Doreen Wallace of Niagara Falls, Ontario. When Wallace fell and broke her hip earlier this month in the lobby of the Greater Niagara General Hospital, she assumed she would be quickly taken care of, but that was not […]

End of World in December 2012?

It’s remotely possible that the world will end in December 2012. But I don’t credit the ancient Maya calendar for predicting it. It’s true that the so-called long-count calendar – which spans roughly 5,125 years starting in 3114 B.C. – reaches the end of a cycle on December 21, 2012. That day brings to a […]

Unusual umbrella!

A 26-foot sculpture of Marilyn Monroe in her most famous pose was installed on Chicago’s Magnificent Mile. Passers-by wasted little time positioning themselves under her billowing skirt to get a subway-grate view of Monroe in the same stance as she appeared in the 1955 film “The Seven Year Itch.” The Marilyn Monroe statue will stand […]

Breast-touching festival in China

I just read about the breast-touching festival and I really find it so laughable that in our modern world, such superstitions still exist. The Chinese have entered the seventh month of the Lunar calendar, known as the Hungry Ghost month, which began July 31. This period is considered unlucky for many Chinese as they believe […]

Elderly woman uses AIDS threat to rob Colorado bank

A woman robbed a Colorado bank by passing a note saying she would infect a teller with AIDS if the clerk didn’t hand over money, police said on Friday. The woman walked into a Wells Fargo bank inside a Safeway grocery store on Thursday night and handed a note to a teller. The woman coughed […]

Now the new doomsday date — October 21, 2011?

The evangelical Christian broadcaster whose much-ballyhooed Judgment Day prophecy went conspicuously unfulfilled on Saturday, May 21, 2011 has a simple explanation for what went wrong — he miscalculated. Instead of the world physically coming to an end on May 21 with a great, cataclysmic earthquake, as he had predicted, Harold Camping, said he now believes […]
