The lifesaving gadget!

I got this forward recently which listed out what one can do with their cell in time of an emergency. I usually dont post everytime I get a forward but this seemed interesting so here goes...

The Emergency Number worldwide for Mobile is 112 .
If you find yourself out of coverage area of your mobile network and there is an emergency, dial 112 and the mobile will search any existing network to establish the emergency number for you, and interestingly this number 112 can be dialed even if the keypad is locked.

This may come in handy someday. Good reason to own a cell phone:
If you lock your keys in the car and the spare keys are at home, call someone at home on their cell phone from your cell phone. Hold your cell phone about a foot from your car door and have the person at your home press the unlock button, holding it near the mobile phone on their end. Your car will unlock. Saves someone from having to drive your keys to you. Distance is no object. You could be hundreds of miles away, and if you can reach someone who has the other "remote" for your car, you can unlock the doors (or the trunk).

Imagine your cell battery is very low , you need to make a ver important call and you don't have a charger. Nokia instrument comes with a reserve battery. To activate, press the keys *3370# Your cell will restart with this reserve and the instrument will show a 50% increase in battery. This reserve will get charged when you charge your cell next time.
(Nokia should advertise this more...)

The Life equation

Life is an equation. How you may ask. Let me explain. Its pretty simple. Everybody has heard of "Every action has an equal and opposite reaction" . If you haven't, well its Newton's 3rd law... not something I cooked up!

So if life is made of our actions and their results, it would be fair to say:

Our actions and decisions in life = The reaction or the result of those actions which we face in life

Now if you take out things like useless and meaningless TV shows, the crappy movies (I agree some are worth watching), overeating, sleeping in late etc., you have a big hole on the actions/decision side of the equation. Now you see how much positive result you can get by eliminating these things from your life?

Wish to fly...?

All of us when we were kids ( or are) have one or two (or million) wishes which can only be thought of by a kid's mind. Didn't you ever wish to fly? Or to be king of the world? Or a similar impossible wish?

Why is it that you tell someone that your wish is to fly someday, they call you crazy and laugh at you? Are you saying that all the small kids are crazy or you were too when you were young? Is it that when you grow up you loose the right to dream the impossible? Funny huh?

I am sure all the science fiction writers are crazy too this way, so would have been Stephen Hawking if he hadn't been good in mathematics and had proved he was right. Einstein is still considered mad, though thats just because not many people can understand even now what he did decades ago. Nostradamus, even I am not sure...

More about cellphones and landlines...

Here was one comment that I felt like posting as a separate post cause I didnt know this thing happened:

Ian's Comment on "Cellphones and Landlines":

"The only reason we still maintain a landline is because of parental concerns: 911 calls from cell phones don't necessarily go to the right dispatcher, and when your toddler is bleeding out his eyes, you might need those precious few extra seconds.

Personally, I'd just as soon lose the extra bill and take my chances.

Cellphones and landlines.

Why do we still see landline phones around when there are these cool gadgets called cellphones available? As I see it, landlines dont seem to have any obvious advantage over cellphones. If there is, let me know.

I know some might think that landlines are way cheaper but then you cant really carry your landline to the office or a party can you? I suppose the extra cost could be accounted for that little feature in a cellphone.

The only reason I feel people keep landlines is to show that they are kind of like... "settled" and they wont be running away anywhere, anytime soon. No wonder many forms ask for your "Home Phone" or something equivalent. Must look kind of prestigious that you actually own a permanent fixed line.

Common sense and power of observation

These are the two things all great scientists have in abundance. Without it, they will not have thought of and invented/discovered what they did. Isaac Newton's work is a great example of the importance of power of observation. You think he was the first human to see an apple or anything for that matter, fall? But he was the only one to think that something was curious about it and went on to "discover" the universal gravitation.

There are a lot of people still doing research in various fields. But none of them as popular as maybe Newton, Einstein (the guy with the prominent hair) . They invented and discovered a load of things in their lifetimes.

About the common sense part, heard of the theory of relativity? Einstein thought of it. It is said that the theory cannot be understood by everybody. I am not talking about the compex mathematical statements, I am talking about the statement of the theory, the definition if you like.

Its totally common sense. So, admit it, some guys have a higher IQ/ common sense than others.

An educational blog!

Hey, what do you know, my blog has been characterized as an "Educational Blog" by the Bestest Blog of All Time

Nice! I didnt know what i thought and wrote was so educational. Thankyou and I will try to maintain the standards.

If the polar ice cap melted?

You know how much trouble it would be if the polar ice caps of earth melted. Let me enlighten you.

First of all it would be hell for all the people related to geography. See, the would have to learn all the new data about the height of the mountains, the depth of the sea etc. Now that would be bad.

Also, every port in the world would be probably underwater. There goes all the awsome yachts and speedboats and the beaches... Pretty damn wet for all the people living near the coastal area also.

Like thats not enough, "Waterworld" would not be considered a science fiction movie but a documentary.

All this would involve a lot of problems. I would hate if this should ever happen, but hey, like I can do much about it...
