Me is writing this post from a CUBE FARM, trying to calculate the BEVAMETER.
Wondering what this is????Don't bother flipping a dictionary to find out what it is.
Well,these are called the SNIGLETS.It is a word that should be in the dictionary, but isn't!! The guy who invented it was Richard Hall, of The David Letterman Show fame.These are words to define concepts that have no official meaning.So a CUBE FARM is an office filled with cubicles and BEVAMETER is the distance you can lift your beverage from the table before the coaster that is stuck to it falls off.
Found a few Techie Sniglets!!
Zen mail is an e-mail message that arrives without text in the message body.
Crapplet is a poorly written or totally useless Java applet.
Gadaboutag is an orphan HTML tag that's messing up your page.
Animousity is to vigorously click the pointer device because a page is loading too slowly.
Screen spasm occurs as a result of animousity.The pages that try to load simultaneously on your computer screen.
P.S : Ignosecond is seeing yourself about to do something stupid but going ahead with it.But my SNIGLET is Igno'no'second!

I am currently reading this book called "THE WORLD IS FLAT",by Thomas.L.Friedman.It is a book which talks about GLOBALISATION.
There was this aspect,that struck me.The author has a suggestion for all the Developing countries in this world.He says-Like how we have something called Alcoholic Anonymous(A.C),we should be having something called -Developing Countries Anonymous(D.A.C).He says,each country should be BRUTALLY HONEST while introspecting.(Very beautiful!!)
The book is presented really well, but all I could think about was,the parts about INDIA.He analyses the state of many of the Developing countries,in which he talks about India. He says -
"On the Chinese streest,there's no rule of law,but the roads are well paved;there are no potholes,and the streetlights all work.On the Indian streets,by contrast,no one ever reapirs the streetlights,the roads are full of ruts,but the police are sticklers for the rules.You need license to open a lemonade stand on the Indian streets.Luckily the local cops can be bribed."It's extremely saddening to know,this BITTER truth.
