BURN YOUR BRIDGES !!

Share

For all the people who like to have a lot of choices to select from…

A study has shown that keeping a lot of options open is IRRATIONAL and is not at all in the best interests of the individual.Even the smartest minds at MIT failed to realise this , an experiment has shown.
The students were asked to play a door game,where they had to open one of three doors to gain a certain number of points.The aim of the game was to gain the maximum number of points,with a certain fixed number of clicks.
The condition was that the doors would shrink slowly if you did not click on them.The study found that even though many of the students had hit upon the right door with the highest points, they kept wasting clicks on the other doors,just to keep them open !! This resulted in a substantial reduction in their performance.
So,it might actually be WISE to burn your bridges so you can’t turn back !!

You can play the game by clicking here.

Moral of the story : Keeping your options open is not a very smart choice after all !!

And we go on…..

This one would have been apt for AFTER the exams…but anyways,here goes…


AND WE GO ON . . .

Sometimes the gain
Doesn’t seem worth the pain
You see no end to strife
How very troublesome is life
But not everyone succeeds at first try
Even those who DO, don’t know why
But don’t lie lamenting over a fall
Rise quick and stand tall
Just learn from your loss
Get up and show ’em who’s the boss
Don’t despair
No deed is beyond repair
Pick up the pieces
Put them together
Learn from them and THEN brave the weather
Don’t fear what the others have got to say
They wouldn’t taunt if THEY knew the way
Drown out the screams
Follow your dreams
Don’t fear the darkness
Just look out for a gleam
Rope walking over an abyss is no ball
But then,those who are down need fear no fall
Be anxious, not afraid when the darkness grows
Just follow your heart, because your heart KNOWS
Don’t worry if you’ll make it through
Just make sure YOU know your heart is true !!

Right ??

ENGLISH IS A CRAZY LANGUAGE

Share

Let’s face it — English is a crazy language. There is no egg in eggplant
nor ham in hamburger; neither apple nor pine in pineapple. English muffins
weren’t invented in England or French fries in France. Sweetmeats are
candies while sweetbreads, which aren’t sweet, are meat.

We take English for granted. But if we explore its paradoxes, we find that
quicksand can work slowly, boxing rings are square and a guinea pig is
neither from Guinea nor is it a pig.

And why is it that writers write but fingers don’t fing, grocers don’t
groce and hammers don’t ham? If the plural of tooth is teeth, why isn’t the
plural of booth beeth? One goose, 2 geese. So one moose, 2 meese? One index,
2 indices?

Doesn’t it seem crazy that you can make amends but not one amend, that you
comb through annals of history but not a single annal? If you have a bunch
of odds and ends and get rid of all but one of them, what do you call it?

If teachers taught, why didn’t preacher praught? If a vegetarian eats
vegetables, what does a humanitarian eat? If you wrote a letter, perhaps
you bote your tongue?

Sometimes I think all the English speakers should be committed to an asylum
for the verbally insane. In what language do people recite at a play and
play at a recital? Ship by truck and send cargo by ship? Have noses that
run and feet that smell? Park on driveways and drive on parkways?

How can a slim chance and a fat chance be the same, while a wise man and
wise guy are opposites? How can overlook and oversee be opposites, while
quite a lot and quite a few are alike? How can the weather be hot as hell
one day and cold as hell another.

Have you noticed that we talk about certain things only when they are
absent? Have you ever seen a horseful carriage or a strapful gown? Met a
sung hero or experienced requited love? Have you ever run into someone who
was combobulated, gruntled, ruly or peccable? And where are all those
people who ARE spring chickens or who would ACTUALLY hurt a fly?

You have to marvel at the unique lunacy of a language in which your house
can burn up as it burns down, in which you fill in a form by filling it out
and in which an alarm clock goes off by going on.

English was invented by people, not computers, and it reflects the
creativity of the human race (which, of course, isn’t a race at all). That
is why, when the stars are out, they are visible, but when the lights are
out, they are invisible. And why, when I wind up my watch, I start it, but
when I wind up this essay, I end it.

Found this somewhere on the Internet ….True,isnt it ?
