Who wants to be a millionare

A nice joke I came across

A blonde named Pam is appearing on "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire" with Regis Philbin.
Regis: "Pam, you're up to $500,000 with one lifeline left: phone a friend. If you get it right, the next question is worth one million dollars If you get it wrong, you drop back to $32,000. Are you ready?"
Pam: "Yes."
Regis: "Which of the following birds does not build its own nest? Is it A) robin, B) sparrow, C) cuckoo, or D) thrush."
Pam: "I'd like to phone a friend. I'd like to call Carol."
Carol (also a blonde) answers the phone: "Hello?"
Regis: "Hello Carol, it's Regis Philbin from Who Wants to be a Millionaire. I have your friend Pam here who needs your help to answer the one million dollar question. The next voice you hear will be Pam's..."
Pam: "Carol, which of the following birds does not build it's own nest? Is it A) robin, B) sparrow, C) cuckoo, or D) thrush."
Carol: "Oh geez, Pam. That's simple. It's a cuckoo."
Pam: "Are you sure?"
Carol: "I'm sure."
Regis: "Pam, you heard Carol. Do you keep the $500,000 or play for the million?"
Pam: "I want to play; I'll go with C) cuckoo".
Regis:" Is that your final answer?"
Pam: "Yes."
Regis: "Are you confident?"
Pam: "Yes; I think Carol's pretty smart."
Regis: "You said C) cuckoo, and you're right! Congratulations, you have just won one million dollars!"
To celebrate, Pam flies Carol to New York. That night they go out on the town. As they're sipping champagne, Pam looks at Carol and asks her," Tell me, how did you know that it was the cuckoo that does not build its own nest?"
"Pam, it was easy," replies her friend. "Everybody knows that cuckoos live in clocks."

Hello World !!!
Sting is coming to Bangalore on the 4th of Feb.
Hope to go for the show.
Hope I get paid by then.
Last time I missed 'The Rolling Stones'
N' Bryan Adams shows b'coz I had no dough.
These shows are bloody so expensive.
I like Sting since his Police days. All classic songs.
1. Wrapped around your finger
2. King of Pain
3. Roxanne
4. Every breath U take
5. Desert rose

There’s a little black spot on the sun today
It’s the same old thing as yesterday
There’s a black hat caught in a high tree top
There’s a flag pole rag and the wind won’t stop

I have stood here before inside the pouring rain

With the world turning circles running ’round my brain
I guess I’m always hoping that you’ll end this reign
But it’s my destiny to be the king of pain

There’s a little black spot on the sun today

That’s my soul up thereIt’s the same old thing as yesterday
That’s my soul up there
There’s a black hat caught in a high tree top
That’s my soul up there
There’s a flag pole rag and the wind won’t stop
That’s my soul up there

I have stood here before inside the pouring rain

With the world turning circles running ’round my brainI guess
I’m always hoping that you’ll end this reign
But it’s my destiny to be the king of pain

There’s a fossil that’s trapped in a high cliff wall

That’s my soul up there
There’s a dead salmon frozen in a waterfall
That’s my soul up there
There’s a blue whale beached by a springtide’s ebb
That’s my soul up there
There’s a butterfly trapped in a spider’s web
That’s my soul up there

I have stood here before inside the pouring rain

With the world turning circles running ’round my brain
I guess I’m always hoping that you’ll end this reign
But it’s my destiny to be the king of pain
There’s a king on a throne with his eyes torn out

There’s a blind man looking for a shadow of doubt
Ther’s a rich man sleeping on a golden bed
There’s a skeleton choking on a crust of bread

King of pain

There’s a red fox thorn by a huntsman’s pack

That’s my soul up there
There’s a black winged gull with a broken back
That’s my soul up there

There’s a little black spot on the sun today
It’s the same old thing as yesterday
I have stood here before inside the pouring rain

With the world turning circles running ’round my brain
I guess I’m always hoping that you’ll end this reign
But it’s my destiny to be the king of pain

King of pain King of pain King of pain

I’ll always be king of pain
I’ll always be king of pain
I’ll always be king of pain...

Hello World !!!
PHL - Premier Hockey League.
The Hockey league is going great guns.
The format for the tournament with 4 quarters
instead of 2 halves is pretty interesting.
The matches have been closely contested.
Except for Chennai Veerans all teh teams are evenly matched.
It can be anybody's title -
Sher e Jalandhar or Hyderabd Sultans or Maratha Warrriors or Bangalore Hi-fliers.
The foreign players have added glamor to the tournament.
Im cheering for Maratha Warrriors.
Have Fun :) Ciao

A talking clock


A drunk was proudly showing off his new apartment
to acouple of his friends late one night, and led the way
to his bedroom where there was a big brass gong.
"What's that big brass gong?" one of the guests asked.
"It's not a gong. It's a talking clock,"
the drunk replied.
"A talking clock? Seriously?" asked his astonished friend.
"Yup," replied the drunk.
"How's it work?" the friend asked, squinting at it.
"Watch," the drunk replied.
He picked up the mallet, gave the gong an
ear-shattering pound, and stepped back.

The three stood looking at one another for a moment.
Suddenly, someone on the other side of the wall screamed,
"'s three-fifteen in the morning!"

Cmon Henry...
Cmon Arsenal...
The title is not lost yet...
Fight... U can do it...


Hello World !!!
Looks like Arsenal are gonna lose the Premier League title
this time round. They lost to Bolton 1-0 last Week-end.
It means that the gap b/w them and Chelsea has widened to 10 points.
Man. Utd. are third one point behind them.
Chelsea are sailing through.
Hope Chelsea lose some of their matches and Arsenal
re-discover their winning ways. Atleast there should be
some competition for the title. Else its boring.
C'mon Arsenal get it going....
C'mon King Henry....


Hello World !!!
Its Wednesday.

Hello World !!!
Monday morning blues...
After 3 days of holidays its back to work.
Friday was Pongal - i.e New Year in the Hindu calendar.
Went on a date to Cubbon Park.
Had a nice time.
#4 #4 #4 #4 #4 #4 #4 #4 #4 #4 #4 #4 #4 #4
Went to friends place in the evening for Pongal.
Drank till morning 5 am.
I drink more when I know next day is a holiday.
Saturday got up late. Got a call my friends family to
join them for picnic. Had a nice time with the kids.
I adore kids. They are so carefree, no bother of the world.
Always asking so many questions.
They make you forget evrything about everything.
BFN. Cheers. Have fun everybody.
So far, so good , so what ?????
Listening to Megadeth , its from D album "Youthanasia"
Like it when im in a angry mood....Grrrrrr.....

I'm doing you a favor

As I'm taking all your money
I guess I should feel sorry
But I don't even trust me
There's bad news creeping up
And you feel a sudden chill
How do you do? My name is trouble
I'm coming in for the kill...
And you know I will

Set the ball A-Rollin
I'll be clicking off the miles
On the train of consequences
My boxcar life O' style
My thinking is derailed
I'm tied up to the tracks
The train of consequences
There ain't no turning back

No horse ever ran as fast
As the money that you bet
I'm blowing on my cards
And I play them to my chest
Life's fabric is corrupt
Shot through with corroded thread
As for me I hocked my brains
Packed my bags and headed west

Hello world !!!

Its Thursday...
Check out this site if you are a ghazal freak.

The forum is very active.
Amateur poets.
I liked this one ghazal by Ayesha - "Lagte Ho"

lagte ho ...

koi ahesaan tale lagte ho

hamse varna kyun gale lagte ho?

zakhm ko dekhkar yeh khaamoshi
aap shaheron men pale lagte ho.

kaun maanegaa aap ke kisse?
shakl soorat se bhale lagte ho.

khauf kaatil se hai tumhe kitnaa?
do kadam saath chale lagte ho.

bekhabar, bezubaan aur bezaar
uski fitrat men dhale lagte ho.

Vanessa Carlton

Hello world!!!
Vanessa Carlton
Just listened to her single Thousand Miles.
Its Fantastic. U know some songs get you
at the first instance;this was one after quite a while.

In February 2002, her debut single A Thousand Miles,
hit the charts and its video was played on MTV.
She has performed on Rosie O'Donnell, MTV's TRL,
and has been mentioned in Rolling Stone as
one of ten artists to watch in 2002. In April 2002,
she released her debut album, Be Not Nobody.



MOTLEY CRUE -You’re all I need
The blade of my knife
Faced away from your heart
Those last few nights
It turned and sliced you apart
This love that I tell
Now feels lonely as hell
From this padded prison cell

So many times I said
You’d only be mine
I gave my blood and my tears
And loved you cyanide
When you took my lips
I took your breath
Sometimes love’s better off dead

You’re all I need, make you only mine
I love you so I set you free
I had to take your life
You’re all I need, you’re all I need
And I loved you but you didn’t love me

Laid out cold
Now we’re both alone
But killing you helped me keep you home
I guess it was bad
Cause love can be sad
But we finally make the news

Tied up smiling
I thought you were happy
Never opened your eyes
I thought you were napping
I got so much to learn
About love in this world
But we finally made the news

You’re all I need, make you only mine
I loved you so, so I put you to sleep.

Hello World !!!
Monday turns to Tuesday...

Nothing much happening around.
Kinda feeling bored.
Got something coming up...
Praying that it works out...
Cheers !!!

Several men are in the locker room of a golf club.
A cell phone on a bench rings and a man engages
the hands free speaker-function and begins to talk.
Everyone else in the room stops to listen.
MAN: "Hello."
WOMAN: "Honey, it's me. Are you at the club?"
MAN: "Yes"
WOMAN: "I am at the mall now and found this beautiful leather coat.
It's only $1,000. Is it OK if I buy it?"
MAN: "Sure, go ahead if you like it."
WOMAN: "I also stopped by the Mercedes dealership
and saw the new 2005 models. I saw one I really liked."
MAN: "How much?" WOMAN: "$70,000"
MAN: "OK, but for that price I want it with all the options."
WOMAN: "Great! Oh, and one more thing...
the house we wanted last year is back on the market.
They're asking only $950,000."
MAN: "Well, then go ahead and give them an offer,
but just offer $900,000."
WOMAN: "OK. I'll see you later! I love you!
MAN: "Bye, I love you, too."
The man hangs up .
The other men in the locker room
are looking at him in astonishment.
Then he asks: "Anyone know who this phone belongs to?"

Hello world !!!
Its very nice and heartening that so many people
are helping the Tsunami affected people.
Even in this world, where there is so much hatred;
there exist people who are kind enough to understand people's misery.
It shows after all that the world is no way coming to end -
with so many kind hearted people around.
Everyday you read stories of some person, some group,
some organisation or country coming forward with funds
to help the victims. Very very nice indeed.
God bless you all.
