The Different Types of People on Facebook

There is a reason why Facebook is the world’s largest social networking site. From a solid profile that gives you center stage attention to a thousand different features to keep you entertained even if you have nothing on your mind, Facebook has everything! And I absolutely love it.

In fact every time I log on to the internet I always hop over to the site to see the latest scoop before I move onto the real reason why I came online. But Facebook is ultimately about the people on it. Therefore, today we will be taking a look at some of the weirdest folks to ever walk the Wall Continue reading

Hogwarts is Here

For those of you who do not know about Hogwarts is Here (a.k.a HiH) it is a website developed by Harry Potter fans to give all those of us who always wanted to study in Hogwarts a feel of the School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, or the way they put it – a Hogwarts’ education for aspiring witches and wizards thanks to the Wizengamot, the British and American Ministry of Magics and a handful of tech-friendly professors from Hogwarts.

Happiness is…

Happiness is the singular most amazing feeling in the world. Nothing compares to what you feel when you are truly happy and euphoric. Maybe that’s why The Happy Page on Facebook is doing so well.

If you don’t know about them, here’s the scoop: The Happy Page is a forum where you can send in what makes you happy and if the admin likes it they illustrate it and post it on the page (max. 24 posts a day). The page is an extension of Last Lemon, a creative studio of Lisa Swerling and Ralph Lazar, and they know what they are doing when they say in the “mission” section of the page – “To make the world a happier place”.

The thing I like the best about The Happy Page is that every illustration is universal and totally relatable, and some are outright hilarious – Happiness is… when you switch off the bathroom light just to annoy the person inside. 😛

Anyway, inspired by all the happiness floating around (and a few awesome things going on in my life) I have decided to list out 10 things that make me ecstatic. Some are nice, some are outright evil, and if by the end of the post you agree with more than half of my list then, mate, you and I would be really good friends if we met in real life.

So here goes:-

1. Happiness is… when you find unexpected cash in an old pant pocket.

2. Happiness is… when you jump out of a hidey hole and scare the shit out of your sister.

3. Happiness is… when you are your friend’s only secret-keeper.

4. Happiness is… when everyone says you are the most honest person in the class.

5. Happiness is… when your junior introduces you to a super-junior by saying you are the most helpful senior ever.

6. Happiness is… when you say hi to a dog, or a cat, or a crow, or a bat and it feels like the animal said hi back. 😀

7. Happiness is… being a Sagittarian!!!

8. Happiness is… being one of the Top 10 students of your batch in college.

9. Happiness is… when your friend says you are looking good (especially after she pokes a finger in your almost rock-hard abdomen… teehee).

10. Happiness is… getting a surprise parcel from your family by post.

… I so want to continue writing about what makes me happy but since I said only ten, 10 it has to be.

Does annoying your sibling make you happy? Do you feel elated when someone says they like you? Don’t be shy, share the joy, what makes YOU happy? I would love to hear from you in the comments’ section below.

So, that’s it for today. I hope this early morning post (early morning where I am) made you a tad bit more cheerful. Have a great day and see ya next time.

Your Laugh Can Spill the Beans

We all love to laugh. Name one person who doesn’t. But did you know that your laugh can actually spill the beans about what is going on in your head?

Did you say “How”? Well, wait no more, here’s the analysis, starting with the least favorable to the most favorable:-

1. The Half-assed Laugh

No, the joke was not funny. In fact if you ate alphabet soup you could have shit out a better joke than that, but unfortunately for you the one cracking the not-funny joke is someone important. A boss perhaps? Or even the leader of your clique. And so you laughed. Guess what, you just branded yourself Dumbass of the Century, Mr. Obvious-is-my-name.

Open Advice: Silence is always better than a half-assed laugh. Continue reading

The Endless Debate: Medical vs. Dental

For those of you who do not know – medical students have always considered their dental counterparts the runts of the roost, while the undergrad dentists have always strived to defend their usefulness to no avail. And since it is highly unlikely that this drama will dissolve any soon with both sides living peacefully and gifting each other puppies on birthdays, let me do what I do best and poke fun at both sides.

1. Whose job is more important?

The M’s (doctors): Of course it’s ours! We save lives. We help birth babies. We cure the world off ailments. Dentists? What do they know about saving lives? They just poke around with teeth.

The D’s (dentists): Say that again when you need dentures.

Nothing replaces natural teeth. NOTHING!!!

2. Who is an eligible bachelor?

M’s: The dental girls are hot, but the guys? Meh…

D’s: OMG! A doctor? You are dating a doctor? WOWOWOWOW!!! That is so awesome. Your mom must be so proud! Now help me get one for myself too…

3. Who gets more respect from society?

Society about M’s: If God had a face it will be my doctor’s.

Society about D’s: They could have been serial killers in another life. Have you seen the sharp instruments they carry around?

Be Scared. Be very scared…

4. Who studies more?

M’s: We are zombies. We live in caves made of Grey’s Anatomy and Davidson. You have no right to ask us that question!

D’s: Considering the nine dental subjects and heavy tomes that med students never study, I guess it’s a tie. But shhh, don’t burst their pretty bubble by telling them about it…

5. What is the perception of the newcomer undergrads about the profession?

M’s: We are gonna investigate the body, cut up some brains and hearts, ooooohhh it’s gonna be fun…

D’s: (After looking at the course structure) We aren’t just studying about teeth? Where the hell have these subjects come from? I thought it was all gonna be rock, shock and pluck the tooth… (unfortunately this is the case in India because people don’t know anything beyond being an engineer or a doctor.

6. Who earns more?

M’s: I just got out of med school. I am the microscopic fish in the vast ocean.

D’s: Who’s laughing now, docs? (As they stare at the cash from the set of braces they just put in a patient’s mouth.)

7. Who has a life?

M’s: My wife asked me to marry the hospital. After all I am always there.

D’s: 9 to 5 job? Check. Tons of cash? Check. Vacations, parties and a normal life? Double check.

But jokes apart, I guess in the end we shouldn’t really compare the two streams because even if both are part of the healthcare community, both are vastly different.

So, what do you think? Like doctors or dentists? Do leave a comment; I truly love it when I hear from you.

As for me I am not fond of either, the former because I absolutely HATE medicines, and every trip to the OPD awards me a few tablets that I would rather die than chug down with my nose pinched, and the latter because now that I have spent two years studying about dentistry, I would rather keep my teeth au naturale than poked full of holes and filled in with something weaker than my pretty whites.

Anyway, that’s it for today. Thank you for reading and I hope to see ya all next time. Till then, have fun.
