By public demand!

Hudugeero hudugeero huchchu hidiso hudugeero!!

Ha! Finally I got some time to write some stuff... Everyone asks me the same thing.
Hows Germany, How are the babes? So... this is dedicated to all of you in whose fortunes the Germany visit is still not happened. I wish it happens soon.

Germany is a nice place! Everything happens perfectly! Nothing surprising that the Germans are known for their precision!

My travel started off in a Lufthansa Airline Boeing 747. And my new found independence had to be used! One bad thing about the Lufthansa people are that the air hostesses are not that good. But from the place i was sitting, them hostesses, while serving food, bent over to ask the passengers what they wanted... and... I... was intimidated by their classy asses, neatly tucked in their tight trousers! That was a sight to watch! But otherwise, them hostesses need to be changed! To ass to the intoxication... I mean, to add to it, I had Rot Wein... Being a non drinker, I have no idea what it tasted like. It brought a weird twist on my face everytime I tool a sip. Thats all I know!! But that was all... Next morning, I had Orangen Saft. Big deal :P

I alighted in the Flughafen and proceeded towards the ICE station. My god! The crowd that comes for US! Jeez! Its like they are giving out free shi*! Why do so many people go to the US!? Anyway! I waited at the bahnhof for the ICE which took me to Stuttgart. And then an old Mercedes took me to my Hotel.

From now on, I'm gonna only talk about... You know what!!

The receptionist was cute! Its great that the hotel has a lot of schöne frauen who are receptionists! Not one of them is bad! Not even close to it! I hope I can take pictures with them! I will upload them pics as soon as I have enough guts to take em! :P

Also, at the breakfast room, there one hot female, who changes everyday, who serves coffee and does the chores! I have no idea from where these many hotties came into one place!!

All females in Stuttgart can be categorized into the following:

1) Oldies - They were the once upon a time babes, now they are sober and mind their own business.
2) Bad - They eat a hell lot and are obese. Gross.
3) Married - They are HOT! They may have a few kinder and are almost always accompanied by their männer.
4) Babes - They are junge, classy and posh. They are kinda hot and kinky!

One thing common to all these people(except 1) is that they all have a great dressing sense.
They are fashionable! And spend a great lot of both geld and zeit for their appearance. No wonder to be a barber, one has to undergo a 3 year course here!!

All said, I so much want to take pictures and show them to you as proof. But at the last moment, I lose courage! I don't want to get beaten by Germans! So I'm exercising some caution. The moment I'm able to capture some, I'll upload them first!

Anyway, here are some of my attempts at photography. I don't want any comments on this cause I know they suck. But this is the best you can get. So just see.

Germany Rules!

English is a language spoken by many... and the usage of words have changed such that it means different things to different people. When I say rules, you may be thinking it to be great(which it is) and so. But, think again... Check the dictionary... this is what has to say about Rules...

"a prescribed guide for conduct or action b: the laws or regulations prescribed by the founder of a religious order for observance by its members c: an accepted procedure, custom, or habit d (1): a usually written order or direction made by a court regulating court practice or the action of parties (2): a legal precept or doctrine e: a regulation or bylaw governing procedure or controlling conduct"

and... when I say germany rules, I meant the bold part!
Yes! there are so many rules! and people abide by them! very religiously!! Coming from bangalore, this sucks for me!!

Everything is planned, and has to happen in a specified way! theres no alternative!

It seems strange in the begining, but one will get used to this and probably start liking it! I hope I wont fall in that category! though you never know!

And for one instance dont ever think Germany is the all that awesome! The German trains are known to be on TIME, every time, EVERY SINGLE DAY, ALWAYS... and the day I landed, the train i was supposed to take, was late by 5 minutes! :) and you must've seen the announcements that used to come inside the ICE - inter city express. Announcements that the connecting trains would be delayed to enable passengers on this train to board it... Thats what happens when you follow too many rules! you lose flexibility! :)
However the train reached its final destination on time... to the dot. it was supposed to reach Stuttgart at 10:33, and it did! at alarming precision!!

One more really really awesome thing in Stuttgart is that all clocks in public (atleast all that I've seen till now) are analog! & the times specified for the transport system aint in multiples of 5! Amazing how people make out 12:12 and 7:22 from these analog clocks!

Even alarming is the fact that people from India, start calculating time in precise terms!

My friend, who was supposed to leave for Paris the night I arrived, happened to give me a visit and forgot his mobile in my hotel room. Back in his apartment, a couple stations away, he was all getting worried. His problem was that the bus to Paris leaves at 21:30 and that he can get ready by 20:00. But we had to get to my room and take his mobile and then he had to continue to the bus station... we left on schedule... 20:00 hours... and on the way to the nearest train station we happened to meet a few guys and had to talk and in the mean time missed the train. The next train was 15 minutes away... and ... this guy became nervous... he went, "ok... now I've missed this train, the next train will come here in 15 minutes... as in 20:19. It will take 7 minutes to your stop. From there the next train will be coming in 8 minutes interval. That means I need to get your room and get back with my mobile to the station in 7 minutes 30 seconds. which means we have to run from the station to the hotel as we cant reach in time if we walk!"
WHAT?! when did you start acting so German!!

And... heres the best... when he went to a frisuer (hair cutting) and sat for a cut, he was asked the most deadliest question... I have to put that in Italics... "How many millimeters short you want your hair to be cut to?" If i'm asked such a question, I'm a gonna freak out! how many mm? cant u freaking just gimme a short haircut?!

Pirates of the Information Highway

I was wondering... who is it that gives us the countless movies, the countless mp3s, the countless videos, the countless e-books... who ever you are, may you live long and continue giving such goodies!

It's a great thing to write a good book with a great story... but its a much much greater thing to be able to get e-book on or before the day of release! This is PIRACY!! and it RULES!

All you people who think otherwise are...(after a Agent Smith style pause ;)) wrong.

Who is the cause for all this? It's the creator... not the creator of the e-book (he is GOD), but I'm
talking about the one who has created the "real" book. That biach had no business to, First. write the story, Second. Sell it at astronomical prices.
All those must be kicked! Oh. You are talking about them earning their bread by writing crappy stories? Think! See! All theses authors are multi millionaires! And they simply are living on the reputation their first book created, correction, first Good Book created! Who wants to pay 950 bucks for a 607 page book?! Thats outright cheating! More than one buck a page?!! SHIT!
Next time you get a thought about e-books being piracy, just let it pass!
