Who? (Friday Funnies)

St. Peter was on extended leave so a minor saint was left in charge of the Pearly gates.

The Saint was  ordered to get proof of identity before letting anyone into heaven.

First up was Beethoven.

“I need proof of identity” said the saint.

So Beethoven played a few bars of his Fifth Symphony and he was admitted.

Next up was Albert Einstein.

“I need proof of identity” said the saint.

So  Einstein explained the  theory of relativity and he was admitted.

Next up was George Bush

“I need proof of identity” said the saint.

” But I am George Bush, former President of the United States of America.”

“Sorry, everyone needs proof. Even Beethoven and Einstein needed proof.”

“Who?”

“OK,  you can go through”

WPC: Infinite Sun,Sky and Sea

There are moments when all anxiety and stated toil are becalmed

in the infinite leisure and repose of nature.  

Henry David Thoreau

Only two things are infinite,

the universe and human stupidity,

and I am not sure about the former.

Mobile phone Evolution – credits:Wiki

April first week marks the fortieth anniversary of the very first hand-held mobile phone introduced to the world. The first call was made in front of reporters to the Bell Labs which weighed just over a kilo. The early hand-held phones offered half an hour talk time with ten hours rechargeable time. The mobile phone technology have come a long way since then and nearly every man under the sun owns a smart phone!

Have we lost something called “Social interaction” since the mobile- mutants  pitched their tents in our palms?

What will be in store for us in the next forty years?  Could it be that we get sick of carrying one  in our hands and opt for an implant?. The time has yet to reveal.
