A good lesson for all of us

ShipA giant ship engine failed. The ship's owners tried one expert after
Another, but none of them could figure but how to fix the engine.
Then they brought in an old man who had been fixing ships since he was a
Young. He carried a large bag of tools with him, and when he arrived, he
Immediately went to work. He inspected the engine very carefully, top to

Two of the ship's owners were there, watching this man, hoping he would know
What to do. After looking things over, the old man reached into his bag and
Pulled out a small hammer. He gently tapped something. Instantly, the engine
Lurched into life. He carefully put his hammer away. The engine was fixed!
A week later, the owners received a bill from the old man for
Ten thousand dollars.
"What?!" the owners exclaimed. "He hardly did anything!"
So they wrote the old man a note saying, "Please send us an itemized bill."
The man sent a bill that read:

Tapping with a hammer...... ......... ....... $ 2.00
Knowing where to tap.......... ......... ...... $ 9, 998.00 ***

Inventing the AIDS VirusDear All,
It's in INDIA - Karnataka - Bangalore

A 10 year old boy, had eaten pineapple about 15 days back, and fell
sick, from the day he had eaten. Later when he had his Health check
done...... doctors diagnosed that he had AIDS.
His parents couldn't believe it...Then the entire family under went a
checkup... none of them suffered from Aids. So the doctors checked
again with the boy if he had eaten out.....The boy said 'Yes'. He had
pineapple that evening. Immediately a group from the hospital went to
the pineapple vendor to check. They found the pineapple seller had a
cut on his finger while cutting the pineapple; his blood had spread
into the fruit.

When they had his blood checked...the guy was suffering from
AIDS...but he himself was NOT aware. Unfortunately the boy is now
suffering from it.

This is nice explanation. read this.

A student asks a teacher: What is love?

The teacher said: in order to answer your question, go to the paddy field and choose the biggest paddy and come back.

But the rule is: you can go through them only once and cannot turn back to pick.

The student went to the field, go Thru first row, he saw one big paddy, but he wonders....
may be there is a bigger one later. Then he saw another bigger one...
But may be there is an even bigger one waiting for him.

The student asked: What is marriage then?
The teacher said: In order to answer your question, go to the corn field and choose the biggest corn and come back.

A girl and guy were speeding over 100 mph on the road on a motorcycle...

Girl: Slow down. Im scared.

Guy: No this is fun.

Girl: No its not.. Please, its too scary!

Guy: Then tell me you love me.

Girl: Fine, I love you. Slow down!

Guy: Now give me a BIG hug.

Girl hugs him

Guy: Can you take my helmet off & put it on yourself? Its bugging me.

In the paper the next day :( A motorcycle had crashed into a building because of brake failure. Two people were on it, but only one had survived.

The truth was that halfway down the road, the guy realized that his brakes broke, but he didn't want to let the girl know. Instead, he had her say she loved him & felt her hug him one last time, then had her wear his helmet so that she would live even though it meant that he would die.

If there is anyone in life you love this much, please send this. Forward this to all your good friends on-line to show them that you care.

Driver's License

Mother Love: PoemsDriver's License - too  cute not to forward

A mother is driving her  little girl to her friend's house for a play  date.

' Mommy ,' the little girl asks,  'how old are you?'

'Honey, you are not  supposed to ask a lady her age,' the mother  replied.
'It's not polite.'

'OK',  the little girl says,
'How much do you  weigh?'

'Now really,' the mother says, 
'those are personal questions and are really  none of your business.'

Undaunted, the  little girl asks, 'Why did you and Daddy get a  divorce?'

'That's enough questions,  young lady! Honestly!'

The exasperated  mother walks away as the two friends begin to  play.

' My Mom won't tell me anything  about her,' the little girl says to her friend. 

'Well,' says the friend,
'all you  need to do is look at her driver's license. 
It's like a report card, it has everything  on it.'

Later that night the little girl  says to her mother,
'I know how old you are.  You are 32.'

The mother is surprised and  asks,
'How did you find that out?

'I  also know that you weigh 130 pounds.' 

The mother is past surprised and shocked  now.
'How in Heaven's name did you find that  out?'

'And,' the little girl says  triumphantly,
'I know why you and  daddy got a divorce.'
'Oh really?' the mother  asks. 'Why?'

'Because you  got an F in sex.'

The Greatest Help for Man... Kind

The Greatest Help for Man... Kind

A man was riding his Harley beside a Sydney beach when suddenly the sky clouded above his head and in a booming voice,

'The Lord said. ‘‘Because you have TRIED to be faithful to me in all ways, I will grant you one wish.'

The biker pulled over and said, 'Build a bridge to New Zealand so I can ride over anytime I want.'

The Lord said; 'Your request is materialistic, Think of the enormous challenges for that kind of undertaking, The supports required reaching the bottom of the Pacific and the concrete and steel it would take!

It will nearly exhaust several natural resources. I can do it, but it is hard for me to justify your desire for worldly things. Take a little more time and think of something that could possibly help mankind.'

The biker thought hard about it for a long time. Finally, he said, 'Lord, I wish that I and all men could understand our wives. I want to know how she feels inside, what she's thinking when she gives me the silent treatment, why she cries, what she means when she says nothing's wrong, and how I can make a woman truly happy'.

The Lord replied; 'You want two lanes or four on that bridge?

Human Brain Analysis

The Human Brain BookHuman Brain Analysis

Women - Multiple process
Women's brains designed to concentrate multiple task at a time .
Women can Watch a TV and Talk over phone and cook the new recipe.

Men - Single Process
Men's brain designed to concentrate only one work at a time. Men can not watch a TV and talk over the phone at the same time. He stops the TV while Talking. He can either watch TV or talk over the  phone or cook.

Women can easily learn many languages. Her brain sets up. But can not find the solutions to problems. Men can not easily learn languages; he can easily solve the problems.
3 year old gal has three times higher vocabulary than 3 year old boy.

Men's brain has lot of space for handling the analytical process. So easily he can analyze and find the solution for a process.
He can design (blue print) a map of a building easily.
If a complex map is viewed by women, she can not understand it. She can not understand the details of the map easily.
For her it is dump of lines in a paper.

While driving a car, men's analytical spaces are used in his brain. He can drive a car fastly. If he see an object at long distance, immediately his brain classifies the object (bus or van or car) direction and speed of the object and driving accordingly. Where as women take a long time to recognize the object direction/ speed. His single process mind stops the audio in the car (if any), then concentrating only on the driving.
You can often watch, while men driving the car fastly, the women sit next to him will shout, "GO SLOW" , "CARE FULL", "AAHHH", "OHH GOD.."

Many times, when men lie to women face to face, they get caught easily.
Her super natural brain observes the facial expression 70%, and the body language 20% and the words coming from the mouth 10%. So he is easily caught while lieing.
Men's brain does not have this.
Women easily lie to men face to face.
So guys, While lieing to your girls, use phone, or letter or close all the lights or cover your/her face with blanket.
Don't lie face to face.

End of day, if men have lot of problems, his brain clearly classifies the problems and puts the problems in individual rooms in the brain and then finds the solution one by one. You can see many guys looking at the sky for a long time. If you disturb him, he gets irritated.
End of Day, if women have lot of problems, her brain can not classify the problems. she wants some one to hear that. After telling everything to a person she goes happily to bed. She does not worry about the problem being solved or not.

Men want status, success, solutions, big process... etc Women want relationship, friends, family...etc...

If women are unhappy with their relations, they can not concentrate on work.
If men unhappy with their work, they can not concentrate on the relations.

Men can easily locate the place in a complex map. His analytical brain does this. While watching a cricket match in a stadium with full of crowd, men can leave his seat to T shop and keeps everything in his mind and comes back to his seat with out problems. He uses his analytical skills space of brain.
Women can't do this. They often lost their way to their seat.

Life is very easy to Men. One good job   is enough for them.
Women want everything in life.

Women use indirect languages in speech.
Geeta asked Vijay, "vijay do you like to have a cup of coffee?"
This means, Geeta wants a cup of coffee.    
In the morning......."Darling, do you think, it will be good to have an Omllette for breakfast?".
Men use direct language. "Geeta, I want to have a cup of coffee, Pls stop the car when you see a coffee shop".
In the morning...."Darling, Can you please prepare an omllette for breakfast?".

Women talk a lot without thinking.
Men act a lot with out thinking.

                     That's why many of prisoners are men all over the world.

Story of an eraser and pencil : Good One

Pencil: I'm sorry....

Eraser: For what? You didn't do anything wrong.

Pencil: I'm sorry cos you get hurt bcos of me. Whenever I made a mistake, you're always there to erase it. But as you make my mistakes vanish, you lose a part of yourself. You get smaller and smaller each time.

Eraser: That's true. But I don't really mind. You see, I was made to do this. I was made to help you whenever you do something wrong. Even though one day, I know I'll be gone and you'll replace me with a new one, I'm actually happy with my job. So please, stop worrying. I hate seeing you sad. :)

I found this conversation between the pencil and the eraser very inspirational. Parents are like the eraser whereas their children are the pencil. They're always there for their children, cleaning up their mistakes. Sometimes along the way... they get hurt, and become smaller (older, and eventually pass on). Though their children will eventually find someone new (spouse), but parents are still happy with what they do for their children, and will always hate seeing their precious ones worrying, or sad.

This is for all parents out there.....

Fantastic reply to a Pretty Girl by CEO

A young and pretty lady posted this on a popular forum:

Title: What should I do to marry a rich guy?

I'm going to be honest of what I'm going to say here. I'm 25 this year. I'm very pretty, have style and good taste. I wish to marry a guy with $500k annual salary or above. You might say that I'm greedy, but an annual salary of $1M is considered only as middle class in New York. My requirement is not high. Is there anyone in this forum who has an income of $500k annual salary? Are you all married? I wanted to ask: what should I do to marry rich persons like you? Among those I've dated, the richest is $250k annual income, and it seems that this is my upper limit. If someone is going to move into high cost residential area on the west of New York CityGarden(?), $250k annual income is not enough.

I'm here humbly to ask a few questions:

1) Where do most rich bachelors hang out? (Please list down the names and addresses of bars, restaurant, gym)
2) Which age group should I target?
3) Why most wives of the riches is only average-looking? I've met a few girls who doesn't have looks and are not interesting, but they are able to marry rich guys
4) How do you decide who can be your wife, and who can only be your girlfriend? (my target now is to get married)

Ms. Pretty

Awesome reply:

Dear Ms. Pretty,

I have read your post with great interest. Guess there are lots of girls out there who have similar questions like yours. Please allow me to analyse your situation as a professional investor. My annual income is more than $500k, which meets your requirement, so I hope everyone believes that I'm not wasting time here. From the standpoint of a business person, it is a bad decision to marry you. The answer is very simple, so let me explain. Put the details aside, what you're trying to do is an exchange of "beauty" and "money": Person A provides beauty, and Person B pays for it, fair and square. However, there's a deadly problem here, your beauty will fade, but my money will not be gone without any good reason. The fact is, my income might increase from year to year, but you can't be prettier year after year. Hence from the viewpoint of economics, I am an appreciation asset, and you are a depreciation asset. It's not just normal depreciation, but exponential depreciation. If that is your only asset, your value will be much worried 10 years later.

By the terms we use in Wall Street, every trading has a position, dating with you is also a "trading position". If the trade value dropped we will sell it and it is not a good idea to keep it for long term - same goes with the marriage that you wanted. It might be cruel to say this, but in order to make a wiser decision any assets with great depreciation value will be sold or "leased". Anyone with over $500k annual income is not a fool; we would only date you, but will not marry you. I would advice that you forget looking for any clues to marry a rich guy. And by the way, you could make yourself to become a rich person with $500k annual income. This has better chance than finding a rich fool.
Hope this reply helps. If you are interested in "leasing" services, do contact me...


What women want....

What Women Want
Its a real nice story...read it...

Young King Arthur was ambushed and imprisoned by the monarch of a
neighboring kingdom. The monarch could have killed him but was moved by
Arthur's youth and ideals. So, the monarch offered him his freedom, as long
as he could answer a very difficult question. Arthur would have a year to
figure out the answer and, If after a year, he still had no answer, he
would be put to death. The question was: What do women really want?
Such a question would perplex even the most knowledgeable man,
And to young Arthur, it seemed an impossible query.

But, since it was better than death,
He accepted the monarch's proposition to have an answer by year's end.
He returned to his kingdom and began to poll everyone:
The princess, the priests, the wise men, and even the court jester.
He spoke with everyone, but no one could give him a satisfactory answer.
Many people advised him to consult the old witch,
For only she would have the answer.

But the price would be high as the witch was famous through out the kingdom
for the exorbitant prices she charged.

The last day of the year arrived and Arthur had no choice but to talk to
the witch.

She agreed to answer the question, but he would have to agree to her price
The old witch wanted to marry Sir Lancelot,
The most noble of the Knights of the Round Table,
And Arthur's closest friend!
Young Arthur was horrified.

She was hunch-backed and hideous, had only one tooth,
Smelled like sewage, made obscene noises, etc.
He had never encountered such a repugnant creature in all his life.
He refused to force his friend to marry her and
endure such a terrible burden,
But Lancelot, having learnt of the proposal, spoke with Arthur.
He said nothing was too big of a sacrifice compared to Arthur's life.
And the preservation of the Round Table.

Hence, a wedding was proclaimed and the witch answered.
Arthur's question thus: "What a woman really wants?"
She said, "Is to be in charge of her own life."
Everyone in the kingdom instantly knew that the witch had uttered a great
And that Arthur's life would be spared.
And so it was.

The neighboring monarch granted Arthur his freedom.
And Lancelot and the witch had a wonderful wedding.
The honeymoon hour approached and,
Lancelot, steeling himself for a horrific experience, entered the bedroom.
But, what a sight awaited him.
The most beautiful woman he had ever seen lay before him on the

The astounded Lancelot asked what had happened.
The beauty replied that since he had been so kind to her when she appeared
as a witch,
She would henceforth be her horrible and deformed self only half the time.
And the beautiful maiden the other half.
"Which would you prefer? She asked him.
"Beautiful during the day ... or at night?"
Lancelot pondered the predicament.

During the day he could have a beautiful woman to show off to his friends,
But at night, in the privacy of his castle, an old witch!
Would he prefer having a hideous witch during the day?
But by night a beautiful woman for him to enjoy wondrous, intimate moments

(If you are a man reading this...) What would YOUR choice be?
(If you are a woman reading this�) What would YOUR MAN'S choice be?
What Lancelot chose, is given below:
BUT... make YOUR choice before you scroll down  ...

Noble Lancelot, knowing the answer the witch gave Arthur to his question,
He said that he would allow HER to make the choice herself.
Upon hearing this, she announced that she would be beautiful all the time.
Because, he had respected her enough to let her be in charge of her own
Now... what is the moral to this story?

The moral is...
1) There is witch in every woman no matter how beautiful she is!
2) If you don't let a woman have her own way, things are going to get ugly.

So, always remember:


Insider Tales: Secret of Casanova
Beautiful tale of love.
This is dedicated to all married people...... .CHEERS!!!

Monica married Hitesh this day. At the end of the wedding party,
Monica's mother gave her a newly opened bank saving passbook.
With Rs.1000 deposit amount.

Mother: 'Monica, take this passbook. Keep it as a record of your marriage
life. When there's something happy and memorable happened in your new
life, put some money in. Write down what it's about next to the line. The
more memorable the event is, the more money you can put in.. I've done the
first one for you today. Do the others with Hitesh.When you look back
after years, you can know how much happiness you've had.'
Monica shared this with Hitesh when getting home. They both thought it
was a great idea and were anxious to know when the second deposit can be

This was what they did after certain time:
- 7 Feb: Rs.100, first birthday celebration for Hitesh after marriage
- 1 Mar: Rs.300, salary raise for Monica
- 20 Mar: Rs.200, vacation trip to Bali
- 15 Apr: Rs.2000, Monica got pregnant
- 1 Jun: Rs.1000, Hitesh got promoted
..... and so on...

However, after years, they started fighting and arguing for trivial
things. They didn't talk much. They regretted that they had married the
most nasty people in the world.... no more love....Kind of typical
nowadays, huh?

One day Monica talked to her Mother:
'Mom, we can't stand it anymore. We agree to divorce. I can't imagine how
I decided to marry this guy!!!'

Mother: 'Sure, girl, that's no big deal. Just do whatever you want if you
really can't stand it. But before that, do one thing first. Remember the
saving passbook I gave you on your wedding day? Take out all money and
spend it first. You shouldn't keep any record of such a poor marriage.'
Monica thought it was true. So she went to the bank, waiting at the queue
and planning to cancel the account.

While she was waiting, she took a look at the passbook record. She looked,
and looked, and looked. Then the memory of all the previous joy and
happiness just came up her mind. Her eyes were then filled with tears. She
left and went home.

When she was home, she handed the passbook to Hitesh, asked him to spend
the money before getting divorce.

The next day, Hitesh gave the passbook back to Monica. She found a new
deposit of Rs.5000. And a line next to the record: 'This is the day I
notice how much I've loved you thru out all these years. How much happiness
you've brought me.'

They hugged and cried, putting the passbook back to the safe..
Do you know how much money they had saved when they retired? I did not
ask. I believe the money did not matter any more after they had gone thru
all the good years in their life.

"When you fall, in any way, Don't see the place where you fell, Instead see the place from where you

look how far the love of God will take you:

Therefore, one can conclude with
mathematical certainty that:
While Hard Work and Knowledge

It's the Love of God that will

The man looked at the frog for a short time, reached
over, picked it up carefully, and placed it in his front pocket.
The frog said, 'What.................... are you nuts? Didn't you hear what I said?
I said KISS me and I will be your beautiful bride.'
The man opened his pocket, looked down at the frog and said,

'"Nah, at my age, I'd rather have a talking frog."' !!!

The next day he went to the pet shop and saw
three identical parrots in a cage.

He asked the clerk, "how much for the parrot on the right?
The owner said it was Rs. 2500.
"Rs. 2500.", the man said. "Well what does he do?
"He knows how to use all of the functions of Microsoft Office 2000, responds the clerk.
"He can do all of your spreadsheets and type all of your letters."

The man then asked what the second parrot cost.
The clerk replied, Rs. 5000, but he not only knows Office 2000,
but is an expert Dot Net Programmer
Finally, the man inquired about the cost of the last parrot.
The clerk replied, "Rs. 10,000."

specialty was.
The clerk replies, "Well to be honest I haven't seen him do anything and I really don’t know about his expertise.

With the sound of Toy pistol,
All eight girls started running.
Hardly had they covered ten to fifteen steps,
when one of the smaller girls slipped and fell down,
Due to bruises and pain she started crying.
When the other seven girls heard the little girl cry they stopped running, stood for a while and turned back.
Seeing the girl on the track they all ran to help.
One among them bent down, picked her up and kissed her gently
And enquired as to how she was..
They then lifted the fallen girl pacifying her.
Two of them held her firmly while all seven joined hands together and walked together towards the winning post........ .

There was pin drop silence at the spectator's stand.
Officials were shocked.
Slow claps multiplied to thousands as the spectators stood up in appreciation.

The Hat Seller

It's an old story that we read in Class 3 but with a new ending.

A hat-seller who was passing by a forest decided to take a nap under one
of the trees, so he left his whole basket of hats by the side. A few hours
later, he woke up and realized that all his hats were gone.

He looked up and to his surprise, the tree was full of monkeys and they
had taken all his hats.

The hat seller sits down and thinks of how he can get the hats down. While
thinking he started to scratch his head. The next moment, the monkeys were
doing the same. Next, he took down his own hat; the monkeys did exactly
the same. An idea came to his mind.

He took his hat and threw it on the floor and the monkeys did that too. So
he finally managed to get all his hats back.

Fifty years later, his grandson, also became a hat-seller and had heard
this monkey story from his grandfather. One day, just like his
grandfather, he passed by the same forest. It was very hot, and he took a
nap under the same tree and left the hats on the floor.

He woke up and realized that all his hats were taken by the monkeys on the

He remembered his grandfather’s words, started scratching his head and the
monkeys followed.

He took down his hat and fanned himself and again the monkeys followed.
Now, very convinced of his grandfather’s idea, he threw his hat on the
floor but to his surprise, the monkeys still held on to all the hats.
Then one monkey climbed down the tree, grabbed the hat on the floor, gave
him a slap and Guess!!! Said what???

"You think only you have a grandfather !!!???"
