Word Press Spell Checker and the American Influence

British English or American English? Carrying the colonial legacy of British, we mostly speak British English but there are more speakers of American English and over time our English is getting mixed up. T’s are disappearing in interested and extra t’s are appearing in party, color is winning over colour, defense over defence, center over centre, dialog over dialogue…the list is endless. The red lines below all these British spellings in the WP editor just show that WordPress is an American product. Variation in pronunciation doesn’t help the matter. Anyway, to keep things simple, we should stick to one form of English.


The Best Endorsement I have ever got

So here it is I asked one of my former employers for an Endorsement on linkedIn and as I have always expected some superb sense of humor from this person he again came up with this brilliant reply. Finally I stuck with the second one as this goes on LinkedIn where there are a lot of people with lower humor quotient and they might not understand the true meaning of this one.

Overall it was the best and the most honest opinions I have heard about myself from one of the most awesome person I have ever worked with.

Dear Shub,

I will gladly give you an endorsement. The fact that you are actively asking for one shows that you are worth one and additionally I have formed an opinion, – or two, of you. I will allow you to have some influence on the endorsement.

I have two alternatives for you to choose from and of course you can suggest amendments to either of these:
Alternative 1.
Mr. Shubhanshu is an arrogant, rude and outspoken young man who does not show any respect for people with power, influence and experience. He is outspoken and expresses willingly his opinions to anyone without considering the context and consequences. His sharp brain and his designer skills save his ass.

Alternative 2.
Shubhanshu was selected among the most promising students at IIT Kharagpur to participate in an experimental web design project in Finland. He fitted well into a multicultural and cross-scientific team. Despite his inexperience, Shubs demonstrated very promising technical design capabilities. He works independently and he will flourish in path-finding teams with complementary skills.

The 5 Minute MBA Course

I was reading the blog of my friend today when I came across this really interesting post about some basic life facts. I loved it so much that I am copying it as it is here on my own blog as well hope you all with get the morals of all the fables.

Lesson 1
An eagle was sitting on a tree resting, doing nothing. A small rabbit saw the eagle and asked him,
“Can I also sit like you and do nothing?”
The eagle answered: “Sure , why not.”
So, the rabbit sat on the ground below the eagle and rested. All of a
sudden, a fox appeared, jumped on the rabbit and ate it.
Moral of the story:
To be sitting and doing nothing, you must be sitting very, very high up.
Lesson 2
A turkey was chatting with a bull.
“I would love to be able to get to the top of that tree’ sighed the turkey, ‘but I haven’t got the energy.”
“Well, why don’t you nibble on some of my droppings?’ replied the bull. They’re packed with nutrients.”
The turkey pecked at a lump of dung, and found it actually gave him enough strength to reach the lowest branch of the tree.
The next day, after eating some more dung, he reached the second branch.
Finally after a fourth night, the turkey was proudly perched at the top of the tree.
He was promptly spotted by a farmer, who shot him out of the tree.
Moral of the story:
Bullshit might get you to the top, but it won’t keep you there.
Lesson 3
A sales rep, an administration clerk, and the manager are walking to lunch when they find an antique oil lamp.
They rub it and a Genie comes out.
The Genie says, ‘I’ll give each of you just one wish.’
‘Me first! Me first!’ says the admin clerk. ‘I want to be in the Bahamas , driving a speedboat, without a care in the world.’
Puff! She’s gone.
‘Me next! Me next!’ says the sales rep.. ‘I want to be in Hawaii , relaxing on the beach with my personal masseuse, an endless supply of Pina Coladas and the love of my life.’
Puff! He’s gone.
‘OK, you’re up,’ the Genie says to the manager…
The manager says, ‘I want those two back in the office after
Moral of the story:
Always let your boss have the first say.
Lesson 4
A man is getting into the shower just as his wife is finishing up her shower, when the doorbell rings.
The wife quickly wraps herself in a towel and runs downstairs.
When she opens the door, there stands Bob, the next-door neighbour.
Before she says a word, Bob says, ‘I’ll give you $800 to drop that towel.’
After thinking for a moment, the woman drops her towel and stands naked in front of Bob, after a few seconds, Bob hands her $800 and leaves.
The woman wraps back up in the towel and goes back upstairs.
When she gets to the bathroom, her husband asks, ‘Who was that?’
‘It was Bob the next door neighbour,’ she replies.
‘Great,’ the husband says, ‘did he say anything about the $800 he owes me?’
Moral of the story:
If you share critical information pertaining to credit and risk with your shareholders in time, you may be in a position to prevent avoidable exposure.
Lesson 5
A little bird was flying south for the winter. It was so cold the bird froze and fell to the ground into a large field. While he was lying there, a cow came by and dropped some dung on him..
As the frozen bird lay there in the pile of cow dung, he began to realize how warm he was.
The dung was actually thawing him out!
He lay there all warm and happy, and soon began to sing for joy.
A passing cat heard the bird singing and came to investigate.
Following the sound, the cat discovered the bird under the pile of cow dung, and promptly dug him out and ate him…
Morals of the story:
(1) Not everyone who shits on you is your enemy.
(2) Not everyone who gets you out of shit is your friend.
(3) And when you’re in deep shit, it’s best to keep your mouth shut!
End of 5 minute course! And excuse the language used. Had they been toned down, they would have lost their tang and humour.

I just decided to look through the mail reading some interesting facts about John F. Kennedy and Abraham Lincoln .. and after every set of facts I was left amazed at the compilers imagination and the perseverance that he had put in looking and compiling these facts … It was amazing in the end .. I never knew that history can really be so interesting.

History Mystery

Have a history teacher explain this—– if they can
Abraham Lincoln was elected to Congress in 1846.
John F. Kennedy was elected to Congress in 1946.

Abraham Lincoln was elected President in 1860.
John F. Kennedy was elected President in 1960.

Both were particularly concerned with civil rights.
Both wives lost their children while living in the White House.

Both Presidents were shot on a Friday.
Both Presidents were shot in the head.

Now it gets really weird.

Lincoln ‘s secretary was named Kennedy.
Kennedy’s Secretary was named Lincoln .
Both were assassinated by Southerners.
Both were succeeded by Southerners named Johnson.

Andrew Johnson, who succeeded Lincoln , was born in 1808.
Lyndon Johnson, who succeeded Kennedy, was born in 1908.

John Wilkes Booth, who assassinated Lincoln , was born in 1839.
Lee Harvey Oswald, who assassinated Kennedy, was born in 1939.
Both assassins were known by their three names.
Both names are composed of fifteen letters.

Now hang on to your seat.

Lincoln was shot at the theater named ‘Ford.’
Kennedy was shot in a car called ‘ Lincoln ‘ made by ‘Ford.’

Lincoln was shot in a theater and his assassin ran and hid in a warehouse.
Kennedy was shot from a warehouse and his assassin ran and hid in a theater.

Booth and Oswald were assassinated before their trials.

And here’s the kicker…

A week before Lincoln was shot, he was in Monroe , Maryland
A week before Kennedy was shot, he was with Marilyn Monroe.


1) Fold a
NEW PINK $20 bill in half…

2) Fold again, taking care to fold it exactly as below

3) Fold the other end, exactly as before

H i n t: P e n t a g o n

4) Now, simply turn it over…

What a coincidence! A simple geometric fold creates a catastrophic premonition printed on all $20 bills!!!
As if that wasn’t enough .. here is what you’ve seen…

The Pentagon on fire…
Then The Twin Towers.
… And now .. look at this!

Disaster (Pentagon)
Disaster ( Twin Towers )
Disaster (Osama)???

It gets even better 9 + 11 = $20!

Creepy huh? Send this to as many people as you can, cause:

Hey, this is one history lesson most people probably will
Not mind reading!
