There is a poem lurking in somewhere but that is for wimps, er romantics. I intend to express myself using imagery being a self-confessed visual person. Hard too.

Am no Freud but maybe it is just the lust for power and human disposition for a fight that is responsible for this harakiri that keeps things going from bad to worse to mayhem to Indian’ness. However, there is humour to be found in every situation and circumstance. Rogering that, here is a tid-bit of a lunch conversation after the old-man came back from a association meeting –
Man: That Mr-X is a moron. The gall to oppose my motion for increasing maintenance. Good thing he is old because otherwise he would have tasted my reason and persuasion (pointing to biceps)
Woman: Talking of Mr-X, her wife is hosting a kitty later this week. I have to cook a dish. Any suggestions? We are also planning to go to a movie. I need your car and driver (coolly serving rice)
Cross my heart. True story. One cannot make such things up!
During the trotting, I was amused by the pilot/hostess persuading people to switch off the mobile phones on the flight. I understand basic electronics but just cannot help wonder as to what damage and to what extent of bad can cell phones do to the aircraft controls. Will terrorists some day use this to advantage to hijack an aeroplane? Is the following situation possible?
Using Seinlanguage, maybe that is what those failed missions are sometimes – the space-men locking themselves out and/or losing the keys. Maybe they are all out there having a stroll on the moon (or whatever is the simulation environment), driving around in their little car and when the pebble collecting is over, realize, “Oh I dont believe this… Dammit… forgot the keys inside”.
They would call up mission control, “Houston, we have a problem. We uh… oh God, this is so embarrassing… we left the keys inside. They’re in this big blue ashtray by the cockpit. We’re really sorry but we were wondering if you could open the door for us. We are sure there should be some electronic control”. And mission control would reply back, “We thought as much. Look under the wings for one of those hide-a-keys we put there as standard protocol. Dont lose them. It is an order”.
