Things that I learnt...

Hell! You should've seen posts with "Things that I learnt blah blah" title in a zillion blogs. This one is slightly different.

Lemme get started.

  • Murphy's law is the most fundamental law in the universe. (To hell with what physicists say)
  • Brutal self delusional optimism is not good. You only end up creating a fool out of yourself.
  • Don't try to fall in love. Trying and pretending to fall in love when you don't know what love is will only make it worse.
  • Don't be an outspoken atheist. Keep your enlightenment up to yourselves. People are fools and will continue to be so.
  • People will not love you for what you are. Give them what they want and everyone will be happy.
  • Approachable + Open + Sweet = Vulnerable asshole.
  • Aggressive + Plangent + Rich = Greek God. (looks don't matter)
  • Think before you say "Yes".
  • People will be nice to you. Don't fall for it. There is a greedy wolf in everyman and a selfish bitch in every woman.
  • 99% perspiration + 1% inspiration = 100% Bullshit. If you believe that hard work will lead to success then explain how unworthy jerks succeed.
  • Don't feel pity for others. They don't deserve it.

The last one was told by a consultant in one of the programs which I'd attended. Here it goes:

Don't Take Shit from People.

P.S. The above words were just a small subset of the boundless wisdom of the TCM.

Enlightening man!

"People will not love you for what you are. Give them what they want and everyone will be happy".

My salutes to this wonderful quote! And regarding the atheism quote, my salutes again!

P.S: If possible, can we meet sometime next month and play some stuff together? My acoustic guitar is still in Mlore and if you could come over to my place, it would be great as I am coming over there next week or so.

Thanks, thanks a lot for the appreciation. Well, all the quotes were my original. No plagiarism. :)
Would love to meet you... its been long time. But the problem is that I play drums and not guitar. Its not possible for us to jam unless u have a drum set at home ;)

Oops! What a gross misinterpretation. Sixteenth notes are tough man whether it be the guitars or the drums. :)

Thanks. Well, they say there is a disappointed idealist inside every cynic. Good to see comments from fellow atheists. And yeah, you have a great blog. Keep rocking!
