sentence has poor grammar, spelling, incorrect word capitalization, and no
punctuation. Not to mention that the statement once interpreted correctly
implies that only Tendulkar could come up with this sort of quote (which is
ironic given that it was not even original). These may have been some factors
that caused him to get a few 1 votes

ØWinston Churchill on Whisky by Abhinav S [Hopefully, not a repost]
Winston Churchill was once asked about his position on whisky.
This was his reply:
"If you mean whisky, the devil’s brew, the poison scourge, the bloody monster that defiles innocence, dethrones reason, destroys the home, creates misery and poverty, yes, literally takes the bread from the mouths of little children; if you mean that evil drink that topples men and women from the pinnacles of righteous and gracious living into the bottomless pit of degradation, shame, despair, helplessness, and hopelessness, then, my friend, I am opposed to it with every fibre of my being."
"However,if by whisky you mean the oil of conversation, the philosophic wine, the elixir of life, the ale that is consumed when good fellows get together, that puts a song in their hearts and the warm glow of contentment in their eyes.
If you mean good cheer, the stimulating sip that puts a little spring in the step of an elderly gentleman on a frosty morning; if you mean that drink that enables man to magnify his joy, and to forget life’s great tragedies and heartbreaks and sorrow; if you mean that drink the sale of which pours into our treasuries untold millions of dollars each year, that provides tender care for our little crippled children, our blind, our deaf, our dumb , our pitifully aged and infirm, to build the finest
highways, hospitals, universities, and community colleges in this nation, then my friend, I am absolutely, unequivocally in favor of it."
"This is my position, and as always, I refuse to compromise on matters of principle." ØHappy Independence Day, India by Nish Sivakumar 65 years now. Or 0x41 for the decimally challenged. ØA flaw in the plan by ChrisElston The more my company locks down the internet, the more time I spend trying to get around things.
Since they banned mobile use in the office, people spend more time outside on their mobiles.
I believe that if you treat people like adults they will regulate themselves and their work and all will be well.
If you try to tell an intelligent person they cannot do something, or try to stop them from doing it, then they will put more of their energies into defying you.
It is simply a natural reaction we learn from when we are children. ØIt was twenty years ago today by PIEBALDconsult Twenty years of wedded bliss to my best friend Leslie (not Nielson). We’ve had our ups and downs, but I honestly have to say I am a lucky fellow to have had someone to put with my shenanigans all these years, laughs at my dumb jokes and allows me to spend money on stupid things like guitars and computers and such.
Now to prepare for the next twenty years I shall leave work early today get some flowers and take her out to a nice place this evening for some dinner without the young ‘un.

That ended it right there. I have to use a spare laptop now. JOn trial by Espen Harlinn A defendant was on trial for murder. There was strong evidence indicating guilt, but there was no corpse. In the defense's closing statement the lawyer, knowing that his client would probably be convicted, resorted to a trick: "Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, I have a surprise for you all," the lawyer said as he looked at his watch. "Within one minute, the person presumed dead in this case will walk into this courtroom."
He looked toward the courtroom door. The jurors, somewhat stunned, all looked on eagerly. A minute passed. Nothing happened. Finally the lawyer said, "Actually, I made up the previous statement. But you all looked on with anticipation. I therefore put it to you that there is reasonable doubt in this case as to whether anyone was killed and insist that you return a verdict of not guilty."
The jury, clearly confused, retired to deliberate. A few minutes later, the jury returned and pronounced a verdict of guilty. "But how?" inquired the lawyer. "You must have had some doubt, I saw all of you stare at the door."
The jury foreman replied: "Oh, we looked, but your client didn't."

Today's joke www.ajokeaday.com Q. Why did the student eat his homework?
A. His teacher said it was a piece of cake.
You don't have to take this so negatively. No one's trying to insult you here, just trying to help. Text-speak has been a big negative for many Indian IT people, specially when they use it in semi-formal scenarios (and even their resumes). It's a good habit to avoid using it.
These abbreviations are well accepted in the Internet community for chats and even for formal communications. But you should avoid spelling "are" as "r" and "you" as "u", etc. since it is very irritating and annoying to most users here.
Since you're new to CP, Nish and super had been trying to get you accustomed to the posting guidelines here. There is nothing to take personally or get irritated about. If you continue to use text speak in your posts, you'll only get a rain of downvotes. And most importantly, change your name to something meaningful and easy, people are identified here by their names (just like I said Nish and super). I would be awkward to refer to you as 'Member 8446342' every time.
I thought you were wishing us all a Pakistan Independence Day (August 14th)
Don't know why but I remember this joke now
Musharraf calls Bush on 11th sept:
Musharraf: Mr President, I would like to express my condolences to you. It is a real tragedy. So many people, such great buildings. I would like to ensure that we had nothing in connection with that.
Bush: What buildings? What people??
Musharraf: Oh, and what time is it in America now?
Bush: It's eight in the morning.
Musharraf: Oops...Will call back in an hour!
