Some Trivia regarding health!

Q: I've heard that cardiovascular exercise can prolong
life. Is this true?
A: Your heart is only good for so many beats, and that's
it. Don't waste them on exercise.
Everything wears out eventually. Speeding up your heart
will not make you live longer; that's like saying you can
extend the life of your car by driving it faster.
Want to live longer? Take a nap.

Q: Should I cut down on meat and eat more fruits and
A: You must grasp logistical efficiencies. What does a
cow eat?
Hay and corn.
And what are these? Vegetables. So, a steak is nothing
more than an efficient mechanism of delivering vegetables
to your system. Need grain? Eat chicken.
Beef is also a good source of field grass, a green leafy
vegetable. And a pork chop can give you 100% of your
recommended daily allowance of vegetable slop.

Q: Is beer or wine bad for me?
A: Look, it goes to the earlier point about fruits and
As we all know, scientists divide everything in the world
into three categories: animal, mineral, and vegetable.

so that only leaves one thing, right?

My advice? Have a burger and a beer and enjoy your

Q: How can I calculate my body/fat ratio?
A: Well, if you have a body, and you have body fat, your
ratio is one to one. If you have two bodies, your ratio
is two to one, etc.

Q: What are some of the advantages of participating in a
regular exercise program?
A: Can't think of a single one, sorry. My philosophy is:
No Pain...Good.

Q: Aren't fried foods bad for you?
A: You're not listening. Foods are fried these days in
vegetable oil. How could getting more vegetables be bad
for you?

Q: Will sit-ups help prevent me from getting a little
soft around the middle?
A: Definitely not! When you exercise a muscle, it gets
bigger. You should only be doing sit-ups if you want a
bigger stomach.

Q: Is chocolate bad for me?
A: Are you crazy? HELLO ..... Cocoa beans. another
"It's the best feel-good food around!"

Well, I hope this has cleared up any misconceptions you
may have had about food and diets.

Borrowed Heaven

The word has so many meanings, and so many implications, we all live in our own borrowed heavens, we strive for the small victories in life and cherish those moments of joy and treats before we embark on the next quest life has in store for us. The own personal heaven can be anything, winning a tough game u were playing, best friend getting a job, clearing an exam, or even india winning a match..

Got The Corrs' new album yesterday, Borrowed Heaven, it has nice lyrics and the music is pleasent as always, the new instrumental "Silver strands" totally rocks and so does the title song - Borrowed Heaven. I was listenening to it whole day and the theme stuck in the head. Here am I, in my own borrowed heaven, just returned from Cafe Coffee where I was on a coffee date with someone I like, and this post is dedicated to The corrs and the lovely music they produce.

Happy News

School time memories come back again... Yesterday was twice happy, for one thing, Nidhi's Visa interview went up like a charm and she got it peacefully, so she'll be flying off to Kansas this end of July.

Another thing is that Tanmay Satpathy (Pintu) finally after much efforts (in trying, he is a lazy bum, he just sits and prefers to sleep) landed up a Job in GSSL, Pune.
We'll be having treats soon for both the occasions...


Also, wing all-4-1 is planning a trip to Bhandardara next week, its a breathtaking place, a paradise, sometimes called "photographer's heaven" (probably thats why, Gags is planning the whole thing out) ..

DDS 2004

At IDC IIT Bombay, we are having Design Degree Show (DDS 2004) this weekend, it'll have an exhibition of all passing out students this year and a design conference. Be sure to be there...
till next time,

There and back again ..

Been to home for my folks' 25th wedding anniversary.. Did a 36 hr journey for 40 hrs at home and dont quite know yet that what was more exciting ... As for the Anniversary, that was more of a family reunion, its been like more than 8 months that me and brother were at home simultaneously at the same time... Couple of relatives also dropped in as guests and it was a total chaotic situation unlike what I had dreamt it to be ...

The Lady in Red

While returning, for the first time in many years, there was a dame sitting in front of me rather than an Aunty with 2-3 kids or an elderly couple... Dressed in Black jeans and a blood-red Tshirt which said See no Evil, Hear no evil, date no evil, her name was Ruhela Iqbal. She is also from bhilai and is presently starting her 2nd year in MBA at K.J. Somaiya Institute of Management. The dame was very quite, considering she *HAD* already spent 4 years doing BE and 1 year of Management, and kept her to herself. Most of the data packets I sent were dropped and therefore I didn't ask her phone no. or email ID. Anyways, she says that she's a friend of Nupur Gurbaxani, another good friend, (presently starting 2nd year in NMIMS) so I can reach her anytime I want, (but I dont think I will, given that she's a non veggie and me a veggie )

Horny Joke
