Now I am forced to sit in front of my desk all day revising and somehow couldn’t help checking my e-mail too often and blogging. Well, I genuinely want to share some funny stuff I suddenly received in an e-mail account I consider to contain only SPAM…
I decided why should I be annoying and forward them to people. I have almost given everyone the URL to this blog, so if they care enough about me they could read my blog and they will find depressing stories of mine, cynical views of the world, random thoughts and pictures I have taken and most of all the things I find funny.
Ich habe always been a person who likes to share… stories, adventures, pictures, and friends. Some how I have been scaring people away or something that they don’t like me sharing. I don’t really ask for anything in return maybe just to stick around until I finish giving.
I am not really getting depressed as exams doom over my head (maybe after so many years of exams I am immune to it or them rather) just into a state of cynicality. I see everything darker, gloomier angles of things.. everything (to be continued)
I would like to share a story that is now been the second time sent to me... a funny story that I had no one to share with the first time round I got it. Now I have the chance to share and here it is:
Four friends, who hadn't seen each other in 30 years, reunite at a party.
After several drinks, one of the men had to use the rest room. Those who remained talked about their kids.
The first guy said, "My son is my pride and joy. He started working at a successful company at the bottom of the barrel. He studied Economics and Business Administration and soon began to climb the corporate ladder and now he's the president of the company. He became so rich that he gave his best friend a top of the line Mercedes for his birthday"
The second guy said, "Damn, that's terrific! My son is also my pride and joy. He started working for a big airline, then went to flight school to become a pilot Eventually he became a partner in the company, where he owns the majority of its assets. He's so rich that he gave his best friend a brand new jet for his birthday."
The third man said: "Well, that's terrific! My son studied in the best universities and became an engineer. Then he started his own construction company and is now a multimillionaire. He also gave away something very nice and expensive to his best friend for his birthday: A 30,000 square foot mansion."
The three friends congratulated each other just as the fourth returned from the rest-room and asked: "What are all the congratulations for?"
One of the three said: "We were talking about the pride we feel for the successes of our sons. …What about your son?"
The fourth man replied: "My son is gay and makes a living dancing as a stripper at a nightclub."
The three friends said: "What a shame…what a disappointment."
The fourth man replied:
No, I'm not ashamed. He's my son and I love him. And he's lucky, too. His birthday just passed and the other day he received a beautiful 30,000 square foot mansion, a brand new jet and a top of the line Mercedes from his three boyfriends."
I am glad that some people actually read my weblog. YEAH. Well somehow it seems these days EQ and interpersonal skills gets you further than IQ.
To avoid being sued for plagiarism I hereby give credits to whoever wrote the following clever mathematical formula.
Unfortunately I don't know who wrote this originally but I received it through my inbox from my friend William (don't know his surname either).
What Makes 100%? What does it mean to give MORE than 100%? Ever wonder about those people who say they are giving more than 100%? We have all been to those meetings where someone wants you to give over 100%. How about achieving 103%? What makes up 100% in life?
Here's a little mathematical formula that might help you answer these questions:
A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z is represented as:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26.
8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 = 98%
11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5 = 96%
1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 = 100%
2+21+12+12+19+8+9+20 = 103%
AND, look how far ass kissing will take you.
1+19+19+11+9+19+19+9+14+7 = 118%
So, one can conclude with mathematical certainty that while Hard work and Knowledge will get you close, and Attitude will get you there, it's the Bullshit and Ass-kissing that will put you over the top.
