Test from Hell

Instructions: Read each question carefully. Answer all questions.
Time limit: 2 hours. Begin immediately.

Art: Given one eight-count box of crayons and three sheets of notebook
paper, recreate the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. Skin tones should be
true to life.

Biology: Create life. Estimate the differences in subsequent human
culture if this form of life had developed 500 million years earlier,
with special attention to its probable effect on the English
Parliamentary System circa 1750. Prove your thesis.

Chemistry: You must identify a poison sample which you will find at your
lab table. All necessary equipment has been provided. There are two
beakers at your desk, one of which holds the antidote. If the wrong
substance is used, it causes instant death. You may begin as soon as the
professor injects you with a sample of the poison. (We feel this will
give you an incentive to find the correct answer.)

Civil Engineering: This is a practical test of your design and building
skills. With the boxes of toothpicks and glue present, build a platform
that will support your weight when you and your platform are suspended
over a vat of nitric acid.

Computer Science: Write a fifth-generation computer language. Using this
language, write a computer program to finish the rest of this exam for you.

Economics: Develop a realistic plan for refinancing the national debt.
Trace the possible effects of your plan in the following areas: Cubism,
the Donatist Controversy and the Wave Theory of Light. Outline a method
for preventing these effects. Criticize this method from all possible
points of view. Point out the deficiencies in your point of view, as
demonstrated in your answer to the last question.

Electrical Engineering: You will be placed in a nuclear reactor and
given a partial copy of the electrical layout. The electrical system has
been tampered with. You have seventeen minutes to find the problem and
correct it before the reactor melts down.

Engineering: The disassembled parts of a high-powered rifle have been
placed on your desk. You will also find an instruction manual, printed
in Swahili. In 10 minutes, a hungry bengal tiger will be admitted to the
room. Take whatever action you feel necessary. Be prepared to justify
your decision.

Epistemology: Take a position for or against truth. Prove the validity
of your stand.

General Knowledge: Describe in detail. Be objective and specific.

History: Describe the history of the Papacy from its origins to the
present day, concentrating especially, but not exclusively, on its
Europe, Asia, America and Africa. Be brief, concise and specific.

Mathematics: Derive the Euler-Cauchy equations using only a straightedge
and compass. Discuss in detail the role these equations had on
mathematical analysis in Europe during the 1800s.

Medicine: You have been provided with a razor blade, a piece of gauze,
and a bottle of scotch. Remove your appendix. Do not suture until you
work has been inspected. You have fifteen minutes.

Metaphysics: Describe in detail the probability of nature of life after death.
Test your hypothesis.

Music: Write a piano concerto. Orchestrate and perform it with flute and
drum. You will find a piano under your seat.

Philosophy: Sketch the development of human thought. Estimate its
significance. Compare with the development of any other kind of thought.

Psychology: Based on your knowledge of their works, evaluate the
emotional stability, degree of adjustment, and repressed frustrations of
each of the following: Alexander of Aphrodisis, Rameses II, Hammuarabi.
Support your evaluation with quotations from each man's work, making
appropriate references. It is not necessary to translate.

Physics: Explain the nature of matter. Include in your answer an
evaluation of the impact of the development of mathematics on science.

Political Science: There is a red telephone on the desk beside you.
Start World War III. Report at length on its socio-political effects if

Public Speaking: 2500 riot-crazed aborigines are storming the classroom.
Calm them. You may use any ancient language except Latin or Greek.

Religion: Perform a miracle. Creativity will be judged.

Sociology: Estimate the sociological problems which might accompany the
end of the world. Construct an experiment to test your theory.

Extra Credit: Define the universe, and give three examples.

Hold on

I think I am alright
Oh yeah I am
But whats this prick in my heart
Asking me to rethink?
I dont wanna go there
I definitely wont
That road's been abandoned
Those days are faded out and forgotten
Never wanna remember the colors
The sounds and smells
None of them will remind me of him anymore
Heck I dont even remember how he looks anymore
What I do remember is
The euphoria
The fear
The tears
The relief
But what I dont remember is the goodbye.
Was there ever one, damn will there ever be one?

Attack of the GE

Did I ever tell you guys 'life is the biggest equalizer'? I guess I did.
It really is machaans and macheens! Well atleast for me.
What I am gonna write about today, is got nothing to do with Karma. Or probably is, well I'm not exactly sure!
Anyway back to the pint, sorry point. Nothing in my life goes unnoticed by the almighty. Ok heres an instance to get u guys warmed up to that idea.
I was sooooooooo looking forward to this date. Maaan I was really thrilled, more than thrilled, I was damn excited. In the bargain I forgot a lotta of my daily woes.......... uh oooo BIG mistake, because thats when this dude Mr GE (The Great Equalizer) drops by to gimme a dose of his totally unwanted, pain in the as.... neck, omni-irritating blessings! So what happens on the D-Day? Like some of you might have aready guessed it, everything, I repeat every F'in thing that could go wrong with that date WENT wrong!!
Unbelievable? Well believe it!

I know its silly to assume that every smile has a tear following. But when things like these keep happening in my not-so-happening-but-try-and-get-my-share-of-fun kinda life, I have no option but to just believe it yaar.

Whatever it be guys, I am not gonna stop having fun just because this psycho dude keeps following me like a credit card salesman (no offence), cos life's about living on the edge, even if its just hanging down from my balcony trying to sneak out to Haze at midnight!

How many off u'll are nodding?

The problem with people who have no vices is that generally you can
be pretty sure they're going to have some pretty annoying virtues.

It's not always rainbows and butterflies

I dont know where it leads, I dont care, I dont judge and
I know "She will be loved"

Beauty queen of only eighteen
She had some trouble with herself
He was always there to help her
She always belonged to someone else

I drove for miles and miles
And wound up at your door
I've had you so many times but somehow
I want more

I don't mind spending everyday
Out on your corner in the pouring rain
Look for the girl with the broken smile
Ask her if she wants to stay awhile
And she will be loved
And she will be loved

Tap on my window, knock on my door
I want to make you feel beautiful
I know I tend to get so insecure
It doesn't matter anymore

It's not always rainbows and butterflies
It's compromise that moves us along
My heart is full and my door's always open
You can come anytime you want

I don't mind spending everyday
Out on your corner in the pouring rain
Look for the girl with the broken smile
Ask her if she wants to stay awhile
And she will be loved
And she will be loved
And she will be loved
And she will be loved

I know where you hide
Alone in your car
Know all of the things that make you who you are
I know that goodbye means nothing at all
Comes back and begs me to catch her every time she falls

Tap on my window, knock on my door
I want to make you feel beautiful

I don't mind spending every day
Out on your corner in the pouring rain, oh
Look for the girl with the broken smile
Ask her if she wants to stay awhile
And she will be loved
And she will be loved
And she will be loved
And she will be loved

Please don't try so hard to say goodbye
Please don't try so hard to say goodbye

I don't mind spending everyday
Out on your corner in the pouring rain

Please don't try so hard to say goodbye

Happy new year

Its amazing how creation/ nature/ god/ life has a way of getting us back on track. Well it definitely knows how to put me back in my place. For quite some time I have been collecting unwanted trash in my body and mind. There was no place for any change anymore. Thats what I thought!
Life caught up with me, whacked my back, made me spill all that garbage and now I am all empty and clean.
Maaaaan was last week one huge spring cleaning session. [one big sigh]

Time for a new start Lyn, this time dont make the same mistakes again or rather make them in a stylishly new way!

Gotta find me one

The biggest lie you ever told - your deepest fear 'bout
growin' old
the longest night you ever spent - the angriest letter you
never sent
the boy you swore you'd never leave - the one you kissed on
new years's eve
the sweetest dream you had last night -- your darkest hour,
your hardest fight

The saddest song you ever heard - the most you said with
just one word
the loneliest prayer you ever prayed - the truest vow you
ever made
what makes you laugh, what makes you cry
what makes you mad, what gets you by
your highest hight, your lowest low - these are the things I want to

i wanna know you - like i know myself
i'm waitin' for you - there ain't no one else
talk to me baby - scream and shout
i want to know you - inside out
i wanna dig down deep - i wanna lose some sleep
i wanna scream and shout - i wanna know you inside out
i wanna take my time - i wanna know your mind
ya know there ain't no doubt - i wanna know you inside out
i wanna know your soul - i wanna lose control
c'mon n' let it out - i wanna know you inside out
ya gotta dig down deep - i wanna lose some slieep
i wanna scream and shout - i wanna know you inside out
tell me everything...
