Of This & That. and more...

The Congress intends to impose reservation quotas on the private sector.
Fabulous. If things weren't in the dickiest state possible already, there's always a way to make it worse. There goes my first vote down the proverbial drain. Come to think of it, the only reason I voted for the Congress is because I had to cherry pick the best of the worst. Sort of like rummaging through garbage to pick out the cleanest piece of junk. Sadly, "cleanest" doesn't quite cut it anymore. Sadder, I didn't see this coming. Saddest, is the fact that I was made aware of Article 49-O about 3 months too late. Politics in India is a dire, depressing scenario. *sighs*

In other news, "A brilliant burst of gamma rays killed most of the creatures on Earth some 440 million years ago, and researchers say, a similar celestial catastrophe could happen again."
Oh.. really? You mean, in addition to the geomagnetic inversion of the planet's magnetic field that is expected to cause momentary direct exposure to cosmic rays, hence reducing all life forms to the equivalent of roast duck? Or maybe the 12 asteroids that were supposed to do the big "CRASH, BOOM, BANG" between the year 2002 and 2009? Or how about the man-made black-hole that would sprout out of the Large Hadron Collider, engulfing all of the world into it? (Detour : The whole thing has more to do with the Higgs Boson, aka The God Particle. Note the irony ;)
And a smattering of Mayan myth, perhaps? (I'm sure the History Channel dudes got a real kick out of the whole thing.) About how, on December 21 2012, the Sun would align itself to the geometric center of the galaxy, bringing about the end of the earth, or at least bringing about the return of Queztacoatl. Add the long-count-calender-hocus-pocus, and you have one of the most talked about documentaries ever aired on prime time. (Detour #2 : Queztacoatl is said to be the most kickass-est, "supreme lord of all things" kinda god in Aztec mythology. **Most importantly, he is also the one credited for single-handedly inventing chocolate!)

Moving on, I am reminded of the something in the news a few years ago. Millions of dollars poured into research for the creation of genetically modified square watermelons. Justification? They fit better into refrigerators. I will leave you to draw your conclusions.

Hell hath no fury,

Like men of science gone loony.

I think you are being way too harsh on men of science,so I will pause here to remind you that there is very thin line between genius and eccentricity.Not their fault really ;)

Ahh yes. It is good to be reminded of one's own words. :) The thin line between genius and eccentricity.
