Funny comments from Rediff blog

I’ve received an email from Indian friend telling me to check Rediff blog in particular this article >>> Rediff.com  »  Business » The world’s first solar plane

The blog was on the article where 2 scientists have invented a plane that will run on solar energy….…they claim it will work at night as well.

The funny comments starts here>>>  🙂

“Actually Government should use the geographical advantage of we being on the opposite side of USA . We should dig a through hole from the center earth which will connect India and USA , so we can put wire through it. So in India ‘s day time sun light and solar energy can be given to USA and they can give us the same in their day time. Also we can fit an train through it so that we dont have to use planes for travelling.

Similarly Finland and New Zealand can be connected using a vertical angular hole.
The best part is if we drop something from Finland it will automatically come down to New Zealand due to gravity, so lot of energy can be saved which we lose in transportation and travelling. This saved energy can then be stored in everyday pencil cells and can be sold at Rs 14 each. This additional revenue can then be
used to educate the people and the children of farmers so that they will have earning sons and they will not sucide.”

“Brilliantest idea ever spelt. But when digging hole from India to US, we should take care when digging at the end, otherwise the excavators & engineers, laborers etc. will fall out of the earth into space. I differ reg. pricing pencil cells at Rs.14/-, due to inflation, drought the price should be raised to like 14.50”

“Making hole in earth is not a good idea. We can just break sun into 4-5 parts and fit one part above India , one above US, one above Finlad and one above New Zealand.”

“This is realy a grt idea guys.. one more thing we are missing.. How Bhart Ratan Purush (Honai wallai) can forget to utilize MOON.. We need to workout to utilize moon light in night rather than digging our motherland.. …”

“Yes I agree as Moon glows in the night it means surely it is having some sort of energy, My suggestion is Next time when we launch chandrayan, connect some wire to its end and then send to earth. So the energy can directly reach from Moon to Sriharikotta. By the way, dont forget to another wire for Earthing, becoz I am not sure if Moonthing works.”

Clear Funny Skies,

Australian guy become a Muslim

While browsing on Youtube, I found these videos and thought of sharing it.. This is a MUST watch.. Part 2 is the most interesting one.

Part 1

 

Part 2

Click here for Arabic Translation 2nd part only

In part 2: I liked when he said: “ For those of you ask for signs have We not shown you enough already? look around you. look at the stars look at the sun and look at the water. these are the signs of the people of knowledge “.

He didn’t mention the verse.. but anyway the verse is @ Surah Al-Baqara Verse 164 >>> The Holy Qur’an

Looks he read a different English translation of the Qur’an. Because all translations are from different people.  Anyway Good point.

Astronomer’s Strange Day

What a Day.. After deciding to go out for a star walk/gazing @ night

I saw so many weird things going on  by Aliens ^_^  I mean couples at the dark site. See for example:-

 

 Aliens at dark site

Well!  What do you think? Please share your story!

Aliens, Please stay out of my way ^_^  I’m trying to focus…

Astronomy Edition Mobile Phone

 

Turn your mobile phone into Astronomy Edition. Sounds strange right !

OK, what I had in mind before coming up with this idea is that I needed a red flash light.

Why do I need a red flashlight?

Because astronomers use very dim, red colored flashlights as to allow for their eyesight to remain as adopted to night-time vision as possible

I own so many kind of red flash lights, but the problem is that I always had to buy new batteries before going for astronomical activity at the dark skies.

But not anymore with this new Astronomy Edition Mobile Phone (AEMP™).

All what I needed are the following:

  1. Mobile phone Model Nokia 1202
  2. Red marker pen – Permanent type
  3. Mobile phone tool set

Ok, lets start:

Nokia 1202 and a Red marker pen 

Nokia 1202 and a Red marker pen

 

tool set

Use the tools to open the Phone

 

 

Start painting all the applicable areas;

Screen, keyboards, keypads, & flashlight

 

Inside and Outside for best output performance

The flashlight area on top of the phone

Done>>> looks ugly & cheap at day light but smart & professional @ night

Looks I have to reapply on the screen,

Red flashlight works very well

PinGO, Done

Yup, that it.

Now I can use my mobile in a different way ^_^

The reason Why I chose this model ( Nokia 1202) is because;

  • Its very cheap – around 10 to 15 pounds
  • Has a Monochrome screen, therefore less power consumption
  • Very lightweight & very easy to handle
  • Has a Flashlight
  • Very dim, red colored light > perfect for reading star charts,
  • Light can be turned on for the whole night with the same light power output.
  • No one will steal it… Its cheap and ugly
  • No headache if you lose it.. Just buy another one ^_^
