TAG - 8 random things about me

The scribbler tagged me.

1. I know that I am going to hate to the core anyone who tells me that he/she/it reads/likes/adores Paulo Coelho. ditto Richard Bach. ditto Robin Sharma. Anyone who can write about a monk who has a ferrari to sell deserves a lot of contempt. Anyone who reads such a book deserves more contempt.

2. There is a common joke about large software companies: that they have a sign that reads "Trespassers will be recruited". I coined that phrase to explain why infy had recruited me.

3. I'm an elitist. Anybody who says "aitch" is one-of-us. Anybody who says "hech" is one-of-them.

4. My response to people who quote pop-corn philosophy like "Impossible itself says I'm possible" is "Imply itself says I'm ply".

5. I believe in the dictum, "Why fart and waste it, when you can burp and taste it"

6. I always have and always will insist on putting dramatic effect before truth.

7. I don't send forwards. I don't orkut. I don't belong to a mailing group / distribution list.

8. I believe in the Zeroeth law of humanics.

This tag goes thus far and no further - on this route at any rate.
