There is this quote of Garfield that I like immensely. It is this

“Some call it laziness. I call it Deep Thought”.

I have never been able to justify this to anybody to whom I have to report. Today I have a support. See http://blogs.hbr.org/trapani/2009/10/increase-your-productivity-by.html.
Mr. Stefan Steigmeister takes a year of sabbatical. So that should justify my five minutes breaks. :-).

All fault is his for a blogger to not get read. It is because the blogs that they generate is pure unadulterated junk not fit for consumption by any reader with some dignity.

This is one such blogger. Not only does he not blog often, he blogs junk. Abolute junk.

And now after blogging he has a feeling if being in the dumps.

So here is one more attempt from him to get noticed by generating some pity.

Rarely does he blog,

His writing is like a log,

Nor does he slog,

And writes like a slob.

So blog readers please read this. If you do I promise to come with more such nonsensical blog on a regular basis to add to your woes.

This is the typical scenario in meeting.

Blah Blah Blah…, Chat, Chat, Chat,…

Yes.

Blah Blah Blah…, Chat, Chat, Chat,…

No.

Blah Blah Blah…, Chat, Chat, Chat,…

Hmm.

Blah Blah Blah…, Chat, Chat, Chat,…

OK

Blah Blah Blah…, Chat, Chat, Chat,…

Fine

Blah Blah Blah…, Chat, Chat, Chat,…

Done

Blah Blah Blah…, Chat, Chat, Chat,…

Great

OK. Bye

What happened to the half hour? What was the conclusion? What needs to be done? Who need to do it?

Nothing. The meeting went through. I escaped from getting bashed by the boss. End of Story. Next meeting, another story.

What’s one’s spouse

Irritating like a louse

Expects you to be mouse

Wants to run the house

Always has a grouse

Creates daily fires to douze

The body cannot booze

The legs cannot laze

The Eyes cannot gaze

Life becomes a maze

Spent in absolute daze

You want this one,

They want that one,

You go this way,

They go that way,

Its always this vs. that,

And full of ifs and buts,

It is I vs your

It is mine vs yours

How much people are worried about the money they make is highlighted by the support China is getting or rather by the fact that not one country has hauled China for its activities in Tibet. The European Union has in fact gone ahead and stopped funding a Tibetan Aid Agency (see http://www.telegraphindia.com/1080318/jsp/opinion/story_9030358.jsp) and has virtually killed it to please its “favoured trading parter”.

China has been using its economic might to supress any and all protests against its authoritarian regime. Whether it be Tibet or Tiannamen Square China has successfully tided over it using its economic might. What can one individual do to stop this juggernaut from running away with cold blooded murder of thousands of people?

Blogging has brought a many like minds which are physically separate to come together. This will have both positive and negative effect. One will have positive effect when positive minds come together and negative effect when negative minds come together.

Everything comes with its positives and negative and the same is true of blogging.
