Mujibar migrated back - and was trying to get a marketing call-centre job in - India ..
The Personnel Manager said, "Mujibar, you are passing all the tests, except one. Unless you are passing, you are not qualifying for this job."
Mujibar said, "Goodness gracious me, most beautious sahib, I am most humbly ready."
The manager said, "You must be making a sentence using the words Yellow, Pink and Green."
Mujibar thought for a few minutes and said, "Mister manager, sahib, I am most dutifully ready for passing this test."
The manager said, "Please be going ahead."
Mujibar said, "The telephone is going green-green, green-green, and I am pinking it up, and I am saying, 'Yellow, yellow', I am Mujibar speaking to you."
Mujibar now works as a senior technician at a large call center for computer problems.

This video shows the unlikely friendship between a crow and a kitten, animals who are supposed to hate one another by nature. It's quite entertaining to watch, but it made me think more about human interactions. As humans we are programmed to like other humans interact and help one another. Despite the fact that we should be naturally inclined to get along we often do the opposite. We wage wars, lie, and intentionally hurt one another. It seems people often forget that we are one common species meant to get along in nature. Geography, culture, prejudices, and ignorance keep us from getting along as nature wanted us to. Maybe the crow and the kitten without the influences from other of their species should serve as an example to us, if different species can get we certainly should be able to too.

"A German bar has come up with the perfect answer for women who like to shop in peace without the stress of moaning partners - a kindergarten for men.For a mere $11.80 a woman can dump her husband at the Noxbar in downtown Hamburg, while she can get on with her shopping.The woman can shop till she drops in the city's attractive boutiques, while her man is kept fully occupied and amused at the play pen for grown ups.The men are given a name badge and treated to a hot meal, two beers, televised football and games. Two trained 'nurses' are on hand to look after them. There are also plans in the pipeline to introduce miniature car racing.The 'Maennergarten' has proved a big hit in Hamburg and could be the start of a whole new movement across Germany and the rest of the world, to take the stress out of shopping for both sexes.Demand was very brisk in the first week of opening, no less than 27 women got rid of their partners there on Saturday. They are allowed leave the men there until 6 pm before collecting them to help carry the shopping home.The idea for the men's crèche came from a female customer who was too stressed shopping with her husband and wanted a way to shop in peace."
I guess I don't quite understand why the husband wouldn't just stay home while his wife shopped. It's actually a funny solution for women who don't want to deal with their husbands while shopping.

Why is it that America is the most health crazed county in the world and also the fattest? There is a disconnect between what we desire and what we see as desirable. It is as if we feel we can get away with cramming our faces with fast food as long as we occasionally buy a new diet book or organic fruits and vegetables when we are at the market. What will it take for Americans to live up to their goals and do something positive for themselves by actually being healthy? Our obesity rate is rising and more gym memberships are sold each year. As a nation we need to actually go to our gyms and stop visiting pizza hut our health is on the line!

If people really do see the world differently (litteraly that is)
What it's like to be color-blind
Why I don't care at all about music
What the values that we all learn by the age of ten were in my case, they are hard to see
What I really want to do
What other people are doing, at the exact same moment
What my cat is saying when he walks around crying
Why animals have such diferent personalities even when they were born and lived with one another their whole lives
What my twin would be like if I had one
How the world is actually going to end
Why is somewhat dislike everyone I meet
Why is water tasteless to us, and what would it taste like if we were from somewhere else
What it would be like to walk around on the moon
What my voice actually sounds like, not just on a recording but in real life
Different machines I could use to make my life easier
If I had a clone and could make it do anything I wanted so I wouldn't have to: would I want it to do stuff for me? What would I miss out on? How would I change as a person?
How magic tricks were actually invented, and why people get so crazy about them
A lot of other random stuff.....

"General experience indicates that "husky" girls-those who are a little on the heavy side- are more even tempered and efficient than their underweight sisters."
"Never ridicule a woman it breaks her spirit and ruins her efficiency."
"Older women who have never contacted the public have a hard time adapting themselves and are inclined to be cantankerous and fussy."
"Give the female employee a definite day-long schedule of duties so that they'll keep busy without bothering management every few minutes."
