After such a long time I checked that illusions site from which I used to share some nice illusions & found this[^] one.
I won't call it illusion but the Art is so cool & intelligently done that makes people wonder what the painting is without that cylindrical object.
Great piece of art
Just read the comment on that site it says:
Awesome! This isn’t actually new though. There was a computer book or magazine from the 80′s that discussed this, the mathematics, and gave some sample code that could convert normal coordinates to cylindrical ones for drawing these programatically. I wish I could remember exactly where I saw it.
I was never good at mathematical programs but really would love to explore such samples to create such a creative piece of art

Easy technic provided that you are good at drawing.
It's just about practicing the other way. Put a cylinder or a steel glass(yes, it's fine, I tried with it) on a paper. Start with writing, not the drawing. Don't look at paper, look at glass and try to write. When you are comfortable with it, try with some easy drawing. That's where I stopped. You can try further with complex art.
Don't blame me for bad hand writings after practicing this.
Of late, Facebook reportedly blocked accounts of almost all the members of the All Assam Chutia Students' Union (Aacsu), confusing their surname "Chutiya" with Hindi slang. However, Chutiya, pronounced as Sutiya, is the name of a community in Assam.
He must be in pain today, watching Gambhir and Kohli score 100s as if it was the easiest thing to do. I guess he's happy that India won but deep inside he's probably wondering what the hell he's doing wrong.
Comare this to Murali who announced his retirement in advance not knowing for sure if he'd get that 800th wicket or not. That he got it is great but the fact that he gambled on that is what sets him aside as a truly astonishing cricketer and human being.
Tendulkar might be a cool person. I hope he is not down. He has played 20 years in Cricket. People should now back him than say "He needs to go". There is as far as I know, no player who has played 20 years of International Cricket.

Well that is an irrational argument. Having played 20 years is not a criteria in deciding if he should continue to play or not. If he can contribute at the international level, he should play, and if he cannot, he should go. That’s all there’s to it.
I am one of his biggest fans. So it pains me to see him bat like this. He's still good enough to be in India's test team but that's because the other batsmen all suck. Had he tried for the Australian or England teams, he wouldn't make it past the 2nd 11 today.
Other batting greats like Richards, Gavaskar, Border, Miandad, Boycott etc. either retired gracefully or were dropped. Sachin is slow at retiring, and the BCCI won't dare drop him. So I foresee him tapering on in his game for another 2 years or so more.

Yes. So that he can concentrate more in test Cricket and can complete his 100th century asap. Is there any other records in the queue to achieve in ODI? If yes, he don't even think about the retirement in the near future.

He is lucky in this and if they do so whole India will rise against BCCI.
♦ Just because you can't think how it can be done doesn't mean it's impossible to do.
♦ Dissatisfaction is man’s driving force.
If he is fit and playing better than the other batsman. then why this call for
him to retire?
In tests this is true, he's still among our top 3 batsmen. Not so in ODIs. Ideally he should go down the order but as far as I know, he's always refused to do that and I don't think MSD is strong enough to force him to doing that.

If this didn't make any sense, congratulations you are completely....sane.

The Wall called it a day and decided to quit Cricket. Messages poured from across the world and Lord Nish himself took time out of his 1 second per day free time to wish The Wall after a great career. Pashad broke through the initial post barrier to make sure he wished The Wall. Later we were told that Lord Nish was planning a huge skyscraper on which a stadium would be built in order to forever now mark this event in the world. A 75% of the stands would be surely named after The Wall and it drew mixed reactions from people. While everyone welcomed this move as a world class new stadium was built in a new way, critics argued that people would spend 2 days in an aircraft to reach the top. The ICC and all cricketing associations however just didn't want to comment with a "We want to see it before we say anything". Find out in our exclusive scoop of the week! And the last words by Wall[^] The Wall!![^]
He's back and he's back to wish! Legendary Poet™ Kunal (merchandise available in select stores across your neighbourhood) has called upon Codeproject to wish Lounge Overlord™ Pete 'O Hanlon a Happy Birthday. Pete was unavailable for any comment but it is generally understood that on special days, Hamsters from all over the world plan surprise parties. Wish the person here: Happy Birthday to pete O' Hanlon[^]
Varsha has decided to brighten up GIT and has teamed up with amit to bring you a party. Suggestions are invited but anything less than a universal party has been frowned upon by the organizers. Insider sources told us that amit had now managed to teleport himself across the galaxy to invite all the living beings but was forced to promise them that chocolate would be given at the beginning. Do you want to party till you are worn out and cold? Go here and give your suggestions! A word of caution though: "Univoter" is a forbidden word. Waiting for reply[^]
Rajendra Pratap has furiously broken through the initial post barrier and promoted himself to Hamster Reporter! He has brought us a link which tell about the greatest one day international: The greatest one day international[^]
We got a new email with shiny stuff and glossy letters promising a good forever haul of prizes. But we were shocked to see that three companies had already teamed up to award us the prizes we deserve(Don't worry we are always modest). Fighting was the real topic of the day as the three big companies fought with bare hands (with a mousepad and a coke thrown in for the fun.....) until we put an end to it suggesting that they could all give us a prize together. Nevermind the post is below and we hope you didn't go breaking your TV (if it's in good condition we're taking it for free): Best EVER Email[^]
Suresh has travelled back in time and brought us messages from the past. Suresh revealed that he wanted to make sure that flashbacks were an important part and that GIT would be nothing without them. GIT GL™ thatraja was unavailable for comment if the new links were searched through a standard GL™ process. Suresh however was assuring people that he would have a chat with the GL™ on Yahoo or Gtalk (Battle Ground) and decide. Find out what happens: Hey Varsha[^]
Abhinav is back and he's back with a fury which rivals even Rajinikanth. He became enraged that Malinga was to be rested for the match and decided to eventually unleash his wrath of hitting sixes at the local neighbourhood wall. Nearby windows were given careful avoidance as they could have very "ugly" interferences. When his anger didn't cool down after a year, Abhinav decided to hit sixes as far as Jupiter and the Galaxy after the Galaxy after the Galaxy after the Milky Way (We could go on but we wouldn't want to always claim credit for undiscovered stuff). Cricket boards around the world decided to hold a top level meeting and after a lot of grumbling about the temperature from AC, 8 cups of coffee and 2 cups of tea, decided to let Malinga play as a Super Sub who can walk in and walk out anytime he wished on the ground. Abhinav cooled down a little and reduced his anger to hitting sixes in the local ground. Will Abhinav's fury be upon everyone again? Will batsmen tremble when someone mentions the word "Six"? Will we get to see all of the above on Youtube?!!! find out below: Malinga has been "rested" for the ODI[^]
Prerak, the invincible Press Handler has decided to do a reboot of the blockbuster serial "Hey ThatRaja!". He informed the media that it was going to be named "Hey Amit" and that it would now show a different person's way of life. People were disappointed to see that the "!" was now avoided but Prerak told that while he was "sincerely interested in the title", he was unable to eventually "Patent the word due to no free time". Stay tuned and watch this space for it is starting again! Hey Amit[^]
Suresh has promoted himself to Super Hamster Reporter! He decided to do a little investigation and returned with brand new Sunday Coats, monocles and a accent rivalling even Holmes. The statistics he brought were shocking. Find out: 4th Richest Politician[^]
