Fantastic Motorcycle Display

This is a fantastic synchronised motorcycle riding display by the Italian police. The precision of riding, timing and the amazing balancing act by these bikers is something to be emulated by every motorcycle enthusiast. If this kind of skills were developed by every biker then there would be very few accidents.

Hilarious Joke :) :) :D

The New Lexus
I bought a new Lexus 455l xs but returned to the dealer the next day complaining that I couldn't figure out how the radio worked. The salesman explained that the radio was voice activated.

'Watch this!', he said, 'Nelson!' The Radio replied, 'Ricky Nelson or Willie Nelson?'
'Willie!', he continued and 'On The Road Again' came from the speakers.

Then he said, 'Kishore!', and in an instant 'Yeh Shaam Mastani' replaced Willie Nelson.

I drove away happy, and for the next few days, every time I'd say, 'Shastriya Sangeet,' I'd get beautiful classical music, and if I said, 'Lata,' I'd get one of her awesome songs.

Yesterday, a couple jumped a red light and nearly creamed my new car, but I swerved in time to avoid them. I yelled, 'Arse Holes!'

Immediately the Pakistani National Anthem began to play, sung by Asif Zardari, Mian Sharif, backed by Musharaff and The PPP Party, with Imran Khan on guitar, Farzana Raja on drums, Shah Mahmood Qureshi on harmonica, Judge Chowhury on tambourine, George Bush on sax and Sherry Rehman on scotch...!

Damn, now I LOVE this car

Is it a blow to feminist movement in France???

I recently read this newsreport about Rachida Dati, the 43-year-old French minister of justice. According to the news-report she took only a 5-day maternity leave even though she gave birth by caesarean section. France is one of the few nations which accords a long four-month maternity leave. Of course this long leave has been mandated thanks to the feminist movements. Now by not taking the mandated maternity leave, Dati seems to have outraged the feminists who claim that she has "undermined" the cause of women's maternity rights.

I look at it in a different way. By forfeiting her maternity leave Dati has displayed to the world that her first commitment is to the people of France who have bestowed upon the responsibility of being a justice minister.

Another facet of Dati's personality protesting feminists seem to have conveniently ignored is that, this woman is a single mother and a high-achieving one at that.

An Introspective Message

This is one of the latest e-mail forwards I received from a good friend of mine. A very insightful message indeed and something that would make everyone of us think and reflect upon how we interact with others. Like the message says we only need to learn how to read faces of people we interact with to know what they think about us. Once we learn this our life will get lot more simpler and easier to lead...
