double standards

Today i received a mail from popfly saying that they are shutting down. I found it sad. Some of the developers ambitions died. Many of us loathe Microsoft. I mostly favor anything from the free software foundation world. Sadly there are people behind these big corporations. My conscience always tells me that nobody is better than anyone else and i keep ignoring that.

Course of things

I watch movies and i get inspirations. I don't even think about it many times.
I was watching a rerun of Bourne Identity and Jason Bourne says while in a restaurant that at this altitude i can run half a mile before i start shaking. I remember the first time i saw it and was thinking that i can't run more than 100ms before i start panting. I know this for sure because i have done twice before and failed in front of people. Now i can run 10kms and more without much problem. I remember watching Baazigar and one of the main things i remember in it is where Shah Rukh Khan is typing a letter. I now remember that he was not typing it proper, but when i saw it i couldn't know. I was so involved in the character that i wondered how he could get time to learn typing while he was preparing for his revenge all those years. I was so inspired by it that i went and learned typing for few months.
Now i get a chuckle out of all these as i wonder about what my life is.

Nothing is so dangerous to the progress of the human mind than to assume our views of science are ultimate, that there no mysteries in nature, that our triumphs are complete and that there are no new worlds to conquer

John Carmack gets a Tesla Roadster. Look for the section Tesla.

I do also confess to enjoying the irony of my driving an electric car. I am fairly hostile to most of the environmental movement, finding it generally a modern tribal religion that justifies condemnation and control of others in the name of protecting the environment. I care nothing at all for the environment in isolation, only for how it positively impacts human life -- civilization is all about beating the environment into forms that suit us better

Some good movies

I am a Daniel Craig fan. I saw him first in Road to Perdition. He had an ugly role in that and i hated that guy. When i knew that he was going to star as James Bond, i was disgusted. Then Casino Royale released, at an apt time in my life. I was wearied of work for two months and needed a break. It was such a powerful movie. I must say that the inspiration for me to going to gym came from Daniel Craig. I had decided few months before Quantum of Solace release that i'll build a good body. Alas it never came true.
Recently i got a really good print of Casino Royale (a Blue Ray). I started searching for his movies and i came across Layer Cake. I instantly fell in love with the movie. I watched it again and again. I searched again and found Enduring Love. I didn't like the story much but loved the beauty of the movie (i usually fall in love with movies which are good to look at, like colors, landscape, good food..). Then yesterday i got Flashbacks of a Fool. It is just brilliant. Very nostalgic. I am really loving this ride of movies. Do you have any suggestions of a Daniel Craig movie?

The Unbearable Lightness of Being

I saw the movie The Unbearable Lightness of Being . The novel was suggested by Kripa when i was in confusion regarding quitting my high paying job.
From the beginning i can remember, i was driven by emotion and logic. I would always wish that i weigh those two more than anything when I'm making a decision. Many times I've despised the lack of logic in the life of people around me which they just make sure that they lived by the standards of the society nearby.
In the long run, i believe most of these doesn't matter anyway considering my understanding of life as nothing but something that happened in the probability of many things in this universe, which by the way is where my brain stops.

Winged Creatures

Saw Winged Creatures. Liked it. Had a familiar feel of Little Miss Sunshine even though there's nothing similar in the storyline. It's been almost two years since i saw the latter.

Seriously i need to :)
It's now two weeks after i've started working from home. Food, Gym and Work has been erratic in this duration. Sometimes i eat less, sometimes too much. I think i've been overdoing Gym whenever i went there. Work, i've been able to do more at night than day.
Now i need to start a schedule on things.

The Age

I was watching a rerun of Apocalypto yesterday. There was a scene of a solar eclipse. I then realized that how much information our generation has got. At that time there was probably no other explanation of a solar eclipse other than a higher being. Now we have the technology to understand what exactly it is.
A few hundred years later, the generation would have much more information and they would look down upon us the same way we (yes we do) look down on our older generations.

In another note i see some people who have been nice no matter how harsh you behave to them. I wonder why i'm jealous and angry about that.
