I hope to hell that when I do die somebody has the sense to just dump me in the river or something. Anything except sticking me in a goddam cemetary. People coming and putting a bunch of flowers on your stomach on Sunday, and all that crap. Who wants flowers when you’re dead? Nobody.The Catcher in the Rye, J.D. Salinger
Remember that Aphthous I mentioned once? Yes, that has been my friend all my life. When I was in school I used to get that so goddam much that I would be unable to speak or eat anything without unbearable pain. Every doctor, hakeem, neighbor, aunt, uncle, shopkeeper, distant cousin, dad's colleague etc gave their own nuskhaa's. And I tried every single one of them but to no avail. Once, my father took me to a famous hakeem (as it goes for every hakeem) and that old fart kept giving me treatment for tonsils infection, which I discovered after 3 months when I accidently read the label of bottle he used to keep those tablets in. Then I understood why he never showed the "source" of tablets.
The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent are full of doubt.Bertrand Russell
One of weird things about me is that being a Punjabi I *love* punjabi songs that employ traditional lyrics but modern music. So to quench this eternal thirst, I sometimes listen to BBC Asian Network radio. The only show that I am able to listen to most of the times is The Adil Ray Show. It's not that Adil Ray plays Punjabi music all the time, it's just that he is a fun loving guy.
Constructing a social system that tends to those who agree with it is a piece of cake compared to constructing one that makes those who disagree with it want to obey its principles.Erik Naggum on Atlas Shrugged
