Solving the Rubik's Cube

My first encounter with a "Rubik's Cube" was a happy one. I was at a fair at my gran's place and this colourful cube caught my eye. I had seen this coulourful little cube with my friends earlier and they couldn't solve it. I remember scoffing at them and taunting them - "You can't get even one colour on one face. Shame on you." They would reply back - "Its really tough. Don't laugh." It was then I decided to figure out this thing myself. So upon much of my pestering, my mom bought me that cube.

Initially I was interested. I made all sorts of twists and turns, trying to achieve what my friends couldn't. But alas no. I never attained glory. After a few days of twisting and turning I decided then it wasn't worth my time and flung it out of the window.

Later today as I was browsing the web, I came across this image wherein they showed how could one solve a Rubik's Cube. And I was shocked. Why hadn't I thought of that earlier!! I had done I would have been the king of my friend's circle when I was a kid. And now I attached the image below for your reference.

I literally facepalmed myself after seeing this.

Have a good day

Robotic Prostitution-Way to go?

Robotic Prostitutes- Way to go?

Year 2050

This was the second time in his life that John had visited this city. After roaming around the city, watching what the city had to offer John was in the heat. He well wanted to unleash his fury on his girlfriend but alas she had fallen into a category of relationships called "Don't ever contact me again". So, after waiting for a while he decides to visit the nearby locality where he had found prostitutes before when he was young...

He found a girl pretty soon and it was a while later that he noticed something was amiss... The it stuck him- This prostitute was a robot.

Year 2012
So today I was browsing through the paper (first the Pg3 of the supplement, then the main newspaper).. that i found an article which said that two researches are predicting exactly this to happen in the future. Well, these two researchers, (who go by the names of Michelle Mars & Ian Yeoman) did some research on this piece of...well.. futuristic science, to determine how robotic protitutes would effect the rates of trafficking, spread os STDs etc. They even made a model of how life would be in such a robotic brothel in a place (They chose Amsterdam over Las Vegas, don’t ask me why)..

Well, many similar predictions have been made Well, many similar predictions have been made before by people (Read robots v/s humans in movies like Terminator which is set in around 2023) but this rises new hopes as well as a can of worms.. let me put it this way..
Benefits include less human trafficking, less chances of STDs or perhaps as the researches point out- less conscience and media problems for married men and men who hold a post of authority..
The cons so far include what happens to the millions of females employed legally/illegally in the prostitution industry? How will they earn their livelihood? And what are the ethical implications of such stuff? Will everyone (here everyone=adults) be able to afford robots to give them pleasure? And last but not the least do you wish to do it with a non-human?

Look, I’m not a prostitution lover as such and I would really love if there was a way to reduce trafficking, spread of STDs etc but this still raises some implications like some pointed above.

Anyway here’s the link to the newspaper article

And I'm Back

Yes it's been quite some time since I wrote a blog post here.
In the last few monthes I enveloped into my own world and locked myself in. Deactivated my Twittter and FB acc. among others. Now after a huge gap I'm back on My Opera.

There are some disadvantages of leaving such sites in a hurry.
Reason:? Some of my friends(I will call them friends not acquaintances) quit My Opera and I don't have their addresses or any info on them so I can contact them again. I was saddened a bit but guess I gotta move on.

Just recently I completed Modern warfare 3.. One of the best FPS games I ever played. Completed it in around 5-6 hrs.

And as my exams approach perhaps I may have to take a leave again but until then
Stay Connected On My Opera.

Age

I know the day will come,
When my head will be devoid of hair,
when my tummy will be like a fat bear,
and become one among the many aged.

I know my turn will come one day
But by worrying every day,
Hoping today is not that day,
I think I'm spoiling my good day

World's Population is now 7 Billion

The world's population is now a staggering 7 billion.
There are many ways to control this but I suggest a simple technique:
-Tax Childbirth
Living on Earth is expensive,
but it does include a free trip
around the sun every year.
=) its a fact ....think about it:)
