In the middle of a serious physics lesson in school one day, the teacher suddenly asked us, "What travels fastest in the universe?". Someone answered, "Light", then someone said, "Sound", then "Photon", then "Light and Photon are same you moron", then "No they're not", then "Supersonic plane", then some even funnier answers. The correct answer was a googly.

"Imagination. Nothing can travel faster than imagination. One moment you can be here, the very next.. in Paris. Then Antartica. From there to Japan.."
Was watching TV in my apartment in Detroit, Michigan, when a thought struck me. Staying inside the house watching TV, connecting to the internet, adjusting the room temperature to my comfort... as long as I'm indoors, how does it matter which part of the world I am in? Chennai same, Bangalore same, Detroit same.
Took a detailed online test today, and here are the results:

The likelihood that you have major or clinical depression is high. You should see a trained health professional to confirm the diagnosis and discuss what treatment might be best for you.

The CESD or Center for Epidemiologic Studies Depression Scale was developed in the late 1970s and has been completed by thousands of individuals in medical settings and studies. Almost 85 per cent of those found to have depression after an in-depth structured interview with a psychiatrist will have a high score on the CES-Depression Scale.
Hahaha - what a load of crap! As if this explains why I've been crying watching Friends, CNN News, and reality show montages in the past few days!
