Non believers and believers, can't we all just get along?

Just my perspective, debates welcome.

A believer has not many questions to think answers for, they have one black hole - God - that they can throw the question at it gets sucked into the mysterious nowhere, and they breath in relief.

A non-believer on the other hand, has a lot to think about. Just for starters, a way to prove to the believers that there might not be a God at all. This is a bit strange because the way I know it, unless shown something does not exist, and its be believer's responsibility to do so - like the bigfoot - most of the world does not believe in it, but the believers try and keep the news alive with a sighting, with a foot mark, with a long range blurry picture.

You see what I see? Search war?

Microsoft today struck a search deal with twitter and facebook -
.. Microsoft has reached collaboration agreements with Twitter and Facebook to get their members' public status updates and messages indexed and presented in useful ways on the Bing search engine...
Read more here:

And Google posted this on their offical blog
... we are very excited to announce that we have reached an agreement with Twitter to include their updates in our search results....

Seems to me that twitter integrated with both search engines, and not the other way around :) Oh! well, what do I know!

Call me crazy, but I jumped

Jumped off a 40 foot cliff at the southern most point of the United States! Risky, might not do it again, but could not resist the temptation at that time! Madhu took the pictures.

Pronounce Linux as Linux

I have heard a lot of pronunciations for "Linux", anything from Lienux, Lienex to Linux - I always wondered who was right, until I heard it from the creator - Linus Torvalds
Listen for yourself:

Sorry, you are not my [blood] type!

A conversation in a Japan's night club, could go something like this:
Boy: Hey there, what's your [blood] type?
Girl: I am a A, and you?
Boy: Sorry, you are not my type [literally]

Japan, as advanced as it is - is apparently obsessed with blood types of people

In the year just ended, four of Japan's top 10 best-sellers were about how blood type determines personality, according to Japan's largest book distributor, Tohan Co. The books' publisher, Bungeisha, says the series - one each for types B, O, A, and AB - has combined sales of well over 5 million copies.

Some employers are discriminating on assignments to employees based on the blood type! Even children at schools are reportedly grouped based on blood type!

I used to laugh at Linda Goodman's Joke books, still do! But this Japan obsession is no joking matter at all, this is really at the core racism. On second thoughts, we need another word for it - because the color of blood is really the same.
