Decisions

with 3 comments

Does this school have better placement prospects? Will I get part time work in this university? School A has a good biology department. Can I make extra money by donating … umm … how do i put it … bodily fluids for research experiments? Is this school less expensive than the other one? Will it be colder at Univ A or at univ B? Orkut community discussions show many jerks headed to Univ B. Should I head to A then? Why are all of them headed to B anyway? Is the program at B better than the one at A? Are the chicks at B better than the ones at A? Is the beer at B’s pubs better than the ones at A’s? What if the admit at C also comes through? So many questions. So little time.

Decision, decisions, DECISIONS! My life seems to have become a series of continuous decision making. Bad ones, mostly. The latest one I’m forced to make is regarding choice of school I plan to attend for my Masters. I’m spoilt for choice. Proud as I am at the outstanding enthusiasm on the universities’ part to recruit me as their student, sometimes I wish I wasn’t such a genius and universities wouldn’t fall over each other to have me. 😀 It’d make my current decision making process a lot easier!

 

Ironically, I will be studying decision theory as one of the subjects. Whichever university I go to.

The Lost joke(s)

with one comment

It’s official. The last post/strip was a total disaster. What, I thought, would make me feel like what Einstein must have felt when first presenting the theory of relativity among his chuddy buddies and the general scientific community, has turned into a damp squib. I was expecting hoots of laughter and general appreciation of my complex intellect for coming up with such a fine piece of deviously humourous literature. Much like Einstein would have expected a “Cheers mate! The Nobel’s yours!”. Instead, I feel like Einstein, who after animatedly presenting the theory of relativity (with the enthusiasm of Navjot Sidhu discovering that his fellow commentator’s mic has stopped working), finds the chuddy buddies and the general scientific community staring blankly at him as if saying, “EH?”.

The hidden meanings, double meanings and all other forms of meaning that I had delicately nurtured on my way to work, while pretending to work and while going back home from work, have gone unnoticed. One friend summed the last post up nicely for me, “It went over the top buddy”.

I am not planning to explain my joke in this post. The only thing worse than a joke that is not understood is the attempt at explaining it. It’s like the hymen reconstruction surgery that a girl, having lost her virginity undergoes before marrying the unsuspecting software engineer types. The joke’s lost on him. The software engineer would be all “Aah! Haha. NOW I GET IT!!”. But it’s of no use. Virginity, time and double meaning jokes are handed out to be lost only once. So I will refrain from any such reconstruction.

This is just an angry rant at having lost the chance for a Nobel prize in Literature.

This is also my stupidest rant i think. But then I keep raising the bar on stupidity.

Double meaning jokes are on the endangered list. Something has to be done.

Did I use the word reconciliation correctly?
