    Amen… to everything except the callertunes rant. What’s so wrong in letting people bitten by Himesh and Atif bugs hear a bit of some rock?

    @Sree : The problem is because they think in the exact same way !

    @Deepak, reverse psychology man! :P I’m just trying to irritate the irritants. Give ‘em something they wouldn’t like. :D

    Now don’t give me some Gandhian philosophy. :P

    But, these are just minor grouses. You know what pisses me the most? Morons playing songs at full volume on them cheap Chinese phones when you’re in a bus or train. Its a cacophony of Himesh, Atif and worse still, those stupid Bollywood songs of the 90′s. AAAAARGH! Use earphones you BASTARDS!

    Atleast the callertunes are just heard by the guy at the other end of the phone, but this is just madness.

    Broken down scooters, cheap Chinese phones–all being dissed.

    This is obviously not a socialist website.

    I usually use the ‘silence’ button if its a nokia or just turn it off. Heck if they don’t really care enough about calls to take it with them, you might as well dunk it in a glass of water.

    @sree: Nothing wrong with enlightening Himesh lovers with a bit of Rock N Roll, but I guess it’s as irritating to them as Himesh is to Rock N Roll lovers. Better to be neutral with the Tring Tring and be equally annoying to all. Also, W.R.T. people playing music on speaker phone, I think it might be a mild case of Manhood Impediment. Not yet at the stage of Woofers…

    @danesh: Same here. Everyone in office seems to have different tunes on their permanently-tethered-to-desk “mobile phones”. The vibrate option on phone is for sexually deviant perverts.

    @pri: Yup. They seem to HAVE more menus, but they don’t want to give more than 2. Go figure why…

    @comrade hades: Capitalism is responsible for the current financial meltdown. It’s the death knell for the oppressor elite. Or something.

    @vallath: A good point. Everyone should follow this… if a phone is left behind, and is ringing, then it’s socially acceptable to turn it off.

    Morel Police is Spot On ! However, IPL and ICL should soon go into this list of Soap operas :) ,I might face some heat due to this.Also, Morel Police should also check the case files on the content shown on channels like India TV, who show alien abductions of Indian Cows at Prime time and show Saadhus removing bhoots out of people.

    Hey Saad, where the hell are you man?

    @gandalf: I fell through darkness and flames. Darkness took me, and I strayed out of thought and time, and I wandered far on roads that I will not tell. In those black depths–for the Balrog no longer burned–I shivered and fought to retain my will and identity. I felt the call of ancient anger and the claws of undying sorrow, and they in turn felt my faltering glow.

    No wait, that’s not what happened. I got lazy and was reading Sea of Poppies. A good book. It’s done now. Making 2 new comics for tomorrow and later…

    Menus… oh yes, dude! Even if we’re the last 6 people in the restaurant, they won’t give us more than one measly menu, which has frayed edges and plastic coating peeled till the middle of the page.

    Spot on!
