The Harlem Globetrotters Are in Town!!

November 16th, 2006 10:05 am by Maimawm

My town that is.. :) (Kan insawi thei lawks!)
I’ve never even dreamed of seeing these guys for real..EVER! But what do you know..they just came and turned up in my town and somebody gave me free tix so life is fair after all!
Went to see them in action last night. I’ve never been a big basketball fan, used to sit and cheer for the Utah Jazz because I liked John Stockton. But last night’s Globetrotters jazzy moves kept me enthralled!
And guess which maimawm got the chance to take pictures with some of the Globetrotters??

Yeah! I even got to meet and pose with some of the members inclusing Herbert Lang & Lawrence Wright!!!
Man I must be the only maimawm in the whole world who can claim to have met the Harlem Globetrotters in person. And I’ll bet none of the team members have ever shook hands with another maimawm before. :)

In 1907, this man wrote this to his son-in-law, who had gone to America to study agriculture:

To get on familiar terms with the local people is a part of your education. To know only agriculture is not enough; you must know America too. Of course if, in the process of knowing Americans, one begins to lose one’s identity and fall into the trap of becoming an Americanised person contemtuous of everything Indian, it is preferabable to stay in a locked room.

In the same way…

EDITED: And this man was the first (and only?) person from India to win a Nobel prize in literature from India… :)

The Glass Prison

Thil addict vanga kan tih chuan a hlutna leh nawmna pawh hi kan hrethiam tawh tak tak thin lova, a lova kan awm theih tawh loh avanga ti kan ni tawh zawk thin… a niang ka ring.

From wikipedia:

The Glass Prison” is a song by the progressive metal band Dream Theater.

It is the first track from their 2-CD album Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence (2002), and is about the first three of the famous 12 steps created by Bill Wilson. The lyrics were written by the band’s drummer, Mike Portnoy, about his experience with alcoholism.

These first 3 steps are

1. We admitted we were powerless over alcohol—that our lives had become unmanageable.
2. Came to believe that a power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.
3. Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him.

Two sequels to “The Glass Prison”, entitled “This Dying Soul” and “The Root of All Evil”, appeared on subsequent albums Train of Thought and Octavarium respectively. As well, these follow-up songs have lyrical and musical references to the previous ones. Also, this entire suite of songs can be considered a sequel of sorts to “The Mirror” (found on 1994′s Awake), as they reflect numerous thematic and lyrical ideas found in that song. Though it is clear that Mike has stated that the songs reflect his alcoholism, it is unclear how deep it ran with him. Fans wonder but highly respect his right to privacy; he has (to date) never made an official statement regarding the degree of the subject.

Mike Portnoy has also stated his intention to release all 12 steps on a future live release. This will happen as soon as the songs for steps 8-12 are finished and recorded in the studio.

This is the only Dream Theater song to feature the sound of turntables, although the effect was actually achieved by guitarist John Petrucci manipulating the fret board of his guitar, not with actual turntables.

Ends with these lines:

The glass prison which once held me is gone
A long lost fortress
Armed only with liberty
And the key of my willingness

Fell down on my knees and prayed
“Thy will be done”
I turned around, saw a light shining through
The door was wide open

Guess Your Age with Chocolate

November 15th, 2006 9:10 am by Maimawm


This is pretty neat. In lo ti ve chhin tawh em? Mak ve reuh mai mai. Got my age right, got the first number I picked wrong though..


It takes less than a minute
Work this out as you read …

Be sure you don’t read the bottom until you’ve worked it out!

This is not one of those waste-of-time things, it’s fun.

1. First of all, pick the number of times a week that you would like to
have chocolate
(more than once but less than 10)

2. Multiply this number by 2 (just to be bold)

3. Add 5

4. Multiply it by 50 — I’ll wait while you get the calculator

5. If you have already had your birthday this year add 1756 …..
If you haven’t, add 1755.

6. Now subtract the four digit year that you were born.

You should have a three digit number.

The first digit of this was your original number
(i.e., how many times you want to have chocolate each week?)


The next two numbers are

(Oh YES, it is!!!!!)
