Just think......

When you've time just think about a few things that don't make sense, like:-

 1. If poison expires, is it more poisonous or is it no longer poisonous?
 2. Which letter is silent in the word, "Scent", the 's' or the 'c'?
 3. Do twins ever realise that one of them is unplanned?
 4. Why is the letter 'w', in English, called 'double u'? Shouldn't it be called 'double v'?
 5. Maybe Oxygen is slowly killing you and it takes 75 - 100 years to fully work.
 6. Every time you clean something, you just make something else dirty.
 7. The word 'swims' upside - down is also 'swims'.
 8. 100 years ago everyone owned a horse and only the rich had cars. Today everyone has cars and
     only the rich own horses.
 9. If you replace 'w' with 't' in 'what', 'where' and 'when', you get the answer to each of them.

The confusions still unresolved. 

 1. At a movie theatre, which arm rest is yours?
 2. If people evolved from monkeys, why are monkeys still around?
 3. Why is there a 'D' in fridge, but not in refrigerator?
 4. Who knew what time it was when the first clock was made?

Vagaries of English language!

 * Wonder why the word 'funeral' starts with 'fun'?
 * Why isn't a 'fireman' called a 'waterman'?
 * How come lipstick doesn't do what it says?
 * If money doesn't grow on trees, how come banks have branches?
 * If a vegetarian eats vegetables, what does a humanitarian eat?
 * How do you get off a non stop flight?
 * Why are goods sent by ship called cargo and those sent by truck, shipment?
 * Why do we put cups in the dishwasher and the dishes in the cupboard?
 * Why do doctors 'practise' medicine? Are they having practice at the cost of the patients?
 * Why is it called 'Rush Hour' when traffic moves at its slowest then?
 * How come noses run and feet smell?
 * Why do they call it a TV 'set' when there is only one?
 * What are you vacating when you go on a vacation?

We can never find the answers, can we?
So just enjoy the pun and fun of the English language!

English is a funny language.


The violinist, Balabhaskar(40), was laid to rest at a solemn ceremony accompanied by state honours, in the Santhikavadom, Thycaud, Thiruvananthapuram. He had met with an accident in the wee hours of 25 Sep, when his car had rammed into a roadside tree near Pallipuram (He was driving and his wife, along with their daughter on her lap was on the pillion seat), about 18 kms from Thiruvananthapuram. RIP Bala, we shall miss you and your music. My tears and prayers.

His daughter, one and a half year old Tejaswini Bala had died on the spot of the accident and his wife, Laxmi is seriously ill - without knowing as to what is happening - in a hospital.
