ny_new_years_eve_crystal_ball_1_170 A whole decade is passing by and a new one is starting. The one that is passing by was marred by life changing events around the globe. Conflict, strife, financial crises. This decade would be certainly remembered. But what to call it is the question.

Two options I have heard being bandied about are:

the Noughties – referring to the 0s

the Oh-Ohs – again referring to the os

While the former would suggest something frivolous, I think the latter would be more apt, due to its resemblance to something avoidable.

Your thoughts…


Its a viral video for a reality show!

Movember is a month long event, wherein men grow their moustache for a whole month and raise charity funds to support men’s health issues.
Issues like prostrate cancer and depression in men. Stuff men don’t usually pay attention to. The event was started in Australia in the late 90’s.
The prostrate, is one of those glands that make men what they are and well a cancer is something too small to ignore. Most cancers if detected at the right time can be treated.
As for depression, well I’m sure there’s nothing a strip club can’t solve!! 😀

Schick is having a promotion where they will donate a dollar if people upload their photos with moustaches and Heinz is donating 10c a bottle in honor of the moustachioed Mr. Heinz.

ngbanI got an email offering a 1 year subscription to the National Geographic magazine for only 15$.
Seemed like a steal, so I clicked on the links and went on to subscribe.
That page, on which I landed had the offer only for the US & Canada.. huh?
OK…there was another link which was for international subscriptions. Great!! they think of everything! So I click that and Kuwait is not there on it. Strange…! Ah yes! they think of everything – ‘If your country is not listed click here for other regions’ So I click again and there is no Kuwait there either, just countries no one would want to go right now!!!…Is this magazine banned here.
I’m going to try writing to them.
