Chaos Theory

Day before yesterday, I saw "Chaos Theory" and laughed at a control freak going out of control.
Today morning someone picked up a fight with me, for being plain lazy.
Tomorrow noon, I think I should seriously update my CV!

Bala once said the most scariest thought, is the feeling that we are becoming the ones we hate the most. I think I've already become one of "them" ! Why should we resist when "The simplest explanation is the best?". Why should we overly complicate things, when billions accept the monster, yup, he's there!

To add fuel to the fire,
Yesterday, I watched "Garshom" - The story of an ex-gulf budhi jeevi (One who thinks a lot, does very little), who returns to kerala, to setup a business. And in the end, the message displayed in the beginning of the film turns out to be true
And her two sons; of which the name of the one was Gershom; for he said, I have been an alien in a strange land: Exodus 18:3
Whatever that means, honestly, its better to belong nowhere and face the identity crisis ~ be a foreigner in one's own land. That way, you can make yourself believe, that you are no ordinary farmer, born to fear the lightning, call it god and cultivate potatoes; You are here to make a dent in the universe! ouch!!

Sunday's supplement (Sri) had a 4 page article on how a Crorepati businessman now begs for 100/500, thanks to the strike by INTUC and AITUC at his factory. All in god's own country. Its not that I tried to start my own business - Heck! Why should I even try?

I am nearing the end of my 3 month parole, and would soon need to publish my priority list for remote destinations. I think Life too needs the same answer as the God question I gave last year - "Forget it, everything is right, everything is wrong, don't cheat, do your job (keep yourself busy) and shutup!"

NERD without brains

Hmm...first post in a while.
This could be interesting. Recently a more well qualified NERD (on his way to becoming a muscle laden JOCK as well) introduced me to

Was weird off-beat and inaccessible to a large percentage of the population...But as soon as I got into the mode, I was rolling on the floor laughing (Would my use of ROFL here have made me a NERD with brains?).

Anyway...the point is all the humour mixed with algorithm and physics references that I pick more often than the average guy gives me a self satisfying smug feeling (like when you fart a really smelly one that runs everyone out of the room. You know its gross but it feels deeply gratifying).

Raised by parents who always told me for every 100 people I was better than, there were at least 10 who were better than me...And I should be running away when they fart rather than revel in the mass exodii (Is that a plural for exodus? Neo, I am not too far from you when it comes to inventing new words and grammar...Kaargh thoo!) that happens upon mine...

A self deprecating fart thus evolved...Silent and deadly with a ventriloquistic elegance that used a worm hole in the space time continuum to attach itself to a foreign anus.

I am digressing...

The question of this post is this...Am I intelligent? Does it make sense to take on super-intelligence head on and fall flat on my face? Or do I outsmart (outfart?) them?
