Dumb Ideas that make ppl rich!!!

Guess the internet revolution also attracted a lot of dumb ppl towards it ..

Just saw a link which showcases some of dumb ideas that have earned the owners of the ideas a lot of money.

This is the best one yet, and makes you wonder how the hell the guy got that idea, and why don’t we ever get some ideas like that which could make us a lot of money.

Seems the guy created a Website with a template for a picture made of 10, 00000 pixels, and he sold each of those pixel space for a 1 $ each, and ppl actually bought them all!!!

He made a cool million by paying hosting charges of 30$ or so, now that’s a idea all ppl would love.

So screen real estate seems to be paying off too. Seems everywhere I see real estate is the only thing which is making ppl crazy rich, I am guessing that selling a piece of land on the moon and mars made a lot more money than this idea.

If only I had thought of this idea before lol

Maybe a second website made in the image of this idea would be a success too….hell even I would have bought a pixel cos 1$ is so cheap, the guy who thought of this is a either a genius or a very dumb guy who got lucky

Prisons Or Holiday Resorts

Turns out Going to prison in US in not such a bad thing after all, if your have done a big enough crime that you are made to go to some of these ‘Corporate Prisons’.

One of the ‘prisons’ boasts of “Inmates can stay in shape using Lompoc’s full gym and tennis courts.” That’s right tennis court so that the inmates can stay in shape.
Now we seriously need to ask if this is a prison or some kind of resort which the inmates come to blow off steam.

I know in India the high profile prisoners (politicians, actors etc) are given some luxuries when compared to ordinary prisoners, but this is hidden to the general public and all the facilities provided are done so in secret. This means atleast the big shots here in India atleast maintain a façade that they are suffering/repenting for their crimes but the corporate America does not even do that.

Hope such kinds of prisons don’t turn up in India otherwise half the population would try to commit any crime just to get in there.

Instead of taking a holiday in a resort and paying money for it, the people will be in the prison enjoying their ‘Hard time’…….

My take on the reservations completely and utterly against them.

Let us assume that reservation are valid, but until when?? We need to atleast set a solid time frame for the reservations and at the end of that limit remove them. But the politicians don’t have the balls to remove the reservations at the end of the time limit, but they find newer excuses to implement more reservations. Thx to their dumbass vote bank politics I think I have lost my faith in democracy……even with all the protests the government went ahead and implemented the reservation without even opening up for debate.

And I fucking hate that damm HRD minister for implementing this, no one even demanded more reservations but this guy comes out of nowhere and brings up this crazy idea so that he will get elected the next time.

The correct way to implement reservations if we absolutely have to is maybe when 2 students with exactly the same marks and same profile are applying for 1 seat then maybe give the seat to the other guy, this maybe acceptable. But these jackasses want to reserve the seat whether the guy deserves it or not.

What about the people in general category who are poor…..dont they deserve any reservation??

The magic solution for this crappy idea was to increase the seats in all the colleges.

Main ‘blunders’ in this idea:

  • Assumption that seats will increase instantaneously whenever the govt makes the announcement (even when the institute heads say it can’t be done, but who needs the opinion of educated people who understand academics)

  • We will find the money for the infrastructure ( classic, where do they suggest we get the money from, oh wait why not take the money from the politicians own big fat Swiss accounts) and last I checked the stock markets are crashing, our oil companies are about to go bankrupt, and we have huge power shortages in every state

With all this I lost my faith on democracy, just because the people want it, it does not mean its good for the country. Hell if people had their way they would demand free oil, free cars etc….and if the politicians get an assurance that they will vote for them they will not think twice about selling the country and satisfying that section of the population.

I am never gonna vote for the congress…….EVER….its always these dumbasses who introduce these reservations and ride on them to victory. Not even one party has the will to standup against these kinda decisions(and with the 1000’s of parties all over the country), if this country is a democracy………WHERE THE HELL IS THE PARTY REPRESENTING THE GENERAL CATEGORY OF THE COUNTRY????

Ending with a quote which explains the problem with reservations eloquently

Let's start the reservation with our cricket team. We should have 10 percent reservation for muslims. 30 percent for OBC, SC/ST like that. Cricket rules should be modified accordingly. The boundary circle should be reduced for an SC/ST player. The four hit by an OBC player should be considered as a six and a six hit by a OBC player should be counted as 8 runs. An OBC player scoring 60 runs should be declared as a century.

We should influence ICC and make rules so that the pace bowlers like Shoaib Akhtar should not bowl fast balls to our OBC player. Bowlers should bowl maximum speed of 80 kilometer per hour to an OBC player. Any delivery above this speed should be made illegal. Also we should have reservation in Olympics. In the 100 meters race, an OBC player should be given a gold medal if he runs 80 meters.

There can be reservation in Government jobs also. Let's recruit SC/ST and OBC pilots for aircrafts which are carrying the ministers and politicians (that can really help the country.. )

Ensure that only SC/ST and OBC doctors do the operations for the ministers and other politicians. (Another way of saving the country..)

Go Nuclear!!

The John Howard show has decided that nuclear energy is safe and furthermore that its a clean energy source!? yeah right...

posts like these are the reason people are so afraid of leaning towards nuclear is wrong with call nuclear energy green?

compared to other energy sources nuclear can be considered very 'green' better than pumping of millions of tons of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere every day.

the only good thing is people are being more aware of such dumbass people and they all bashed up the guy who wrote the article...hehehe

hope there are more awareness about these kindof topics. one post really summed it up.

Amzing all these ecomentalists "we don't want fossil fuels cause of the ozone layer" but "we also don't want nuclear power cause it's to risky".

Well at the end of the day we need power!

Hampster wheels powering light bulbs wind farms and water arnt going to cut it.

FFS live in the real world.

Good, Old Holidays

Finished all my exams, and now for the holidays. But 3 days into the holidays and I am already bored. Can’t figure out what to do, except sleep, browse the internet, and sleep again.

Started watching the series Prison Break, a suspense series which charts the course of a escape of a group of prisoners from a high security prison (which looks more like a huge holiday resort). Finished downloading the first part of the series and now have to wait for the remaining episodes to be released. I like serials like this which involve a lot of planning and suspense. Just hope this does not become a serial like Lost which is currently in a filler spree, used to be interesting but now the its getting boring with nothing happening at all, but still this damm serial is still rated at the top.

Now back to real world, was reading the paper the day before and read an article about how Priyanka Gandhi is willing to join the main stream politics after her brother also joined the politics and that all the people are happy about this development.
WTF……given the chance to practically ‘rule’ the country I don’t think anyone will deny that chance, and we are supposed to be happy that these ‘Gandhi’s’ chose to do just that??. I am already sick of seeing Sonia Gandhi on the news everyday, now I have look at 2 more bozo’s from the ‘Gandhi’ family. All Sonia Gandhi does is find an opportunity and try and use it to emotionally gain some leverage.
Like the office of profit controversy, I don’t see what the great sacrifice was, she quit the parliament and then got re-elected in about 3 weeks??? What is so great about that, if we put a dog and add the ‘Gandhi’ name beside it, the people of that constituency will elect even that, just because of the name. I cant believe there are people in this country so dumb enough to believe all these political maneuvers.

Anyway the blog will be updated more frequently cos…..well it’s the holidays and I have nothing much to do.

Finally free!!!

Attended my final day of college, seems now i am finally free of the college. Have to 'visit' the college for 3 more days and that’s it, goodbye to my engineering and look forward to other things .Engineering should have been a lot of fun, but since its our college, its been hell.

Whoever heard of taking permissions slips to get out of the college at the engineering level!!!! But that’s our college, more rules than the central jail. I mean come on, engineering is supposed to be a professional degree and when we come out of the college we are expected to be professional in our outlook and ideas. But seems my college has a different view, even if we don’t do any useful work we are supposed to stay in the college just because of WHAT? I can’t see how they can justify those damm rules. After we get into an organization, our professionalism comes into play, and we have to develop that from our college level. If the college can’t believe their students can manage their time and attendance, how the hell can companies trust us with their projects? .

This damm attitude of the college pisses me off; I didn’t have to follow these many rules even at my school and intermediate level.

Finally free of all this crap, there goes my rant about the college.

Have to attend the college for the project seminar, and then the 2 exams on 25th and 27th and hope I don’t ever visit the college again.

so don't drink too much!!!

Stable computing

Finally everything has settled down, no more problems with the computers (phew!!). I had a problem with the older computer, suddenly it started showing BSOD and saying it has a problem with APIC or some other crap, it kept suggesting me to get a BIOS update.
I thought hey this is the first time windows suggested a bios update and I thought maybe the BIOS got corrupted and I should update to the newest version. So I got started with the flashing and the computer gets stuck, so knowing never to interrupt a flash, left it alone, then a sudden power failure occurs.

Tried starting the comp after that and it just wouldn’t boot, tried to re-flash which seemed impossible but thanks to my L33T (that’s elite in geek language) motherboard ASUS provided a way to flash the bios even if it was dead. The only problem was that I didn’t know which the default filename it would look for was. So long story short, I couldn’t find a way to flash the damm thing and had to take it to a chip level service center, and they said they would charge me 500Rs just for service (meaning taking the motherboard and looking for the problem) and they would charge more for repair. I was like WTF and tried to repair again but this time taking the help from the ASUS forum and it worked and now the comp is working again.

Now currently I am an expert on BIOS flash troubleshooting, thx to my research on BIOS’s.
