Creative COVID Crisis

This one doing its rounds on Whatsapp. Kudos to the creator!

We all have to be careful because I read that people are facing mental health issues from being isolated for so long.

In fact, I have been discussing with the microwave and toaster during coffee break and we all agreed that things are getting bad.

I didn’t mention anything to the washing machine as she puts a different spin on everything. Certainly not to the fridge as he has been acting very cold and distant.

The toilet looked a bit flushed when I asked for his opinion. He didnā€™t say anything but the doorknob told me to get a grip. The front door said I was unhinged and so the curtains told me to pull myself together.

The vacuum was very unsympathetic and told me to just suck it up, but the fan was more optimistic and hoped it would all soon blow over.

In the end, the iron straightened me out. She said everything will be fine and no situation is too pressing!

CORONA lockdown time-killers

Due to COVID-19 crisis many has time in hand.

Try this riddle if you are interested:

-It’s a five letter word and something you can eat

– if you cut off the first letter it’s something coming from the sun,.

– if you cut off the first two letters it’s an daily activity.

– if you cut off the first three letters it’s something used in an email address.

– if you cut off the first four letters it’s something you drink.

What’s the Word????????

Longer than the English alphabets

While surfing through the net, I came across this name on a obituaty website.

Sivapathasomasuntharalingam!

All in one word with 28 English alphbets.

If dissect the name, one will end up with at least 5 Tamil names.

Siva-patha-soma-sunthara-lingam.

However the trader from Northern Province of Jaffna, Sri Lanka has shorten his name to Sivapatham.

Just wondering how he managed to write his name on a passport form or on the online forms?

Rest in peace Sivapathasomasuntharalingam!

Some light entertainment! šŸ˜Š

What a wealth!

Coming closer to my home.

Cliche!

We remember them in a thousands ways

Many we love taken away too soon,
We remember them in aĀ thousands ways..
In the morning, evening or on a starry night’
On a stranger, a song, place , book or nook
But we remember them in a thousands ways.

Givers & Takers

There areĀ  two kinds of peopleĀ  in the world,

Givers and takers.

Takers will eat better

but the givers will sleep better!

Is Hell exothermic (release heat) or endothermic (absorbs heat)?

BelieveĀ  this is a response by aĀ  studentĀ  which is shared via internet which is, of course, why we now have the pleasure of enjoying it as well:

Question :Ā  Is Hell exothermic (release heat) or endothermic (absorbs heat)?

Most of the students wrote proofs of their beliefs using Boyle’s Law (gas cools when it expands and heats when it is compressed) or some variant.

One student, however, wrote the following:

First, we need to know how the mass of Hell is changing in time. So we need to know the rate at which souls are moving into Hell and the rate at which they are leaving, which is unlikely. I think that we can safely assume that once a soul gets to Hell, it will not leave. Therefore, no souls are leaving. As for how many souls are entering Hell, let’s look at the different religions that exist in the world today.

Most of these religions state that if you are not a member of their religion, you will go to Hell. Since there is more than one of these religions and since people do not belong to more than one religion, we can project that all souls go to Hell. With birth and death rates as they are, we can expect the number of souls in Hell to increase exponentially. Now, we look at the rate of change of the volume in Hell because Boyle’s Law states that in order for the temperature and pressure in Hell to stay the same, the volume of Hell has to expand proportionately as souls are added.

This gives two possibilities:

1. If Hell is expanding at a slower rate than the rate at which souls enter Hell, then the temperature and pressure in Hell will increase until all Hell breaks loose.

2. If Hell is expanding at a rate faster than the increase of souls in Hell, then the temperature and pressure will drop until Hell freezes over.

So which is it?

If we accept the postulate given to me by Teresa during my Freshman year that, ‘It will be a cold day in Hell before I sleep with you,’ and take into account the fact that I slept with her last night, then number two must be true, and thus I am sure that Hell is exothermic and has already frozen over. The corollary of this theory is that since Hell has frozen over, it follows that it is not accepting any more souls and is therefore, extinct….. ….leaving only Heaven, thereby proving the existence of a divine being which explains why, last night, Teresa kept shouting ‘Oh my God.’
