This Evian ad from Europe is amazing.

An animation of a 'water boy' who climbs out of a glass of water and walks to the beat of "We will rock you," by Queen. I don't want to break the funny parts, but I can't help but laugh when he extinguishes a fire by peeing on it. The final few scenes explain how there are so many waterbodies all over the world - the water boy and a water girl do something inside a big red throbbing heart, and they have five little water bodies. The best ad I've ever seen since that plywood ad with that Punjabi boy who remembers his previous life and talks in Tamil with his still living, 80 year old 'wife.'


I was playing nethack late evening when three people saw me - one 'developer' dude and my boss and a 'systems' guy. I evaded the dev dude by saying that I was a network in it and I was pushing packets around. I couldn't say the same to my boss. I just said that was something my friend sent me and I was trying to figure out what it was. The third guy, who was a linux admin or something did not know what this was! How could they be computer engineers without knowing what it was? But then, most 'engineers' in India have no relevance to what they studied and their career. There are many guys here who 'studied' civil and mechanical engineering but wanted to get into only 'software field,' because 'companies like Infosys pay very well.' Anyway, some of my classmates are planning to go 'trekking' to Matheran and I am planning to go along. I don't want to miss it like last time when they went (sort of) rock climbing. Yeah.

Lightbulb joke

How many invisible pink unicorns does it take to change a lightbulb?

2) Funny joke, now make one of Buddha! You can't, otherwise you will be blown to hell with such a joke. Only true believers of The Invisible Pink Unicorn (PBUH) are subjects of ridiculous "jokes"
