Overlord Broadcast #3

June 9, 2009 8 comments

Dear Facebook Users,

Everyone knows what day of the week it is. Stop updating “What’s on your mind?” with “Uff.. Monday again :(“, “Friday! Yay.com!” and other such inanities.

It is bad enough that Monday has to happen every week. Nobody needs reminders for this. Especially if you start moaning about it on Sunday itself and ruin the day for those who are trying to ignore Monday for as long as they can. Ditto about Fridays. Yes, most of us are looking forward to the end of the week. But you don’t have to add to the agony of the wait with some variation of “Can’t wait for weekend to start”.

Seriously, just stop it already.

Yours truly,

Overlord

TOI Disappears in Bermuda Triangle

June 2, 2009 2 comments

Bermuda Triangle to blame for crash?” screams a headline in Times of India, linked right at the front page. Full text and screen-shot below.

Bermuda, Miami, Florida, and San Juan, Puerto Rico mark out a triangular region on the western part of the Atlantic. Also known as the Devil’s Triangle, this region has become notorious for the seemingly inexplicable disappearances of aircraft and surface-vessels.

There are theories galore “explaining” the disappearances but none that has been able to establish what happens conclusively. Some argue human error, others deliberate sabotage or powerful hurricanes. No merit in the innumerable scientific explanations offered. A sizeable section even pleads for alien abduction or other such paranormal activity beyond the scope of science. [TOI]

Now, let me show you the approximate locations of the Bermuda Triangle as well as the area over which the Air France Flight 447 is estimated to have disappeared:

The red circle is practically inside the triangle, wouldn’t you say?
