I hope I have got them all here , If I have missed any let me know please 🙂 and thank you all for all the replies 🙂  So here is a question which one is the most hilarious…

 

Anyone !!!!!

 

 

 

 

I think people do take me for a Fool sometimes, here is an example of something like that, I need some money desperately so I planned to sell My bike, put it on selling websites and got funny offers which have left me surprised, I somehow dont trust myself anymore the more I think about myself

The Ad. for the bike says

screenshot_2016-10-24-11-39-26

Got a few offers  and one came from Italy and here is what the person had to say, he offered to do a private sale via email 🙂 , I sent him a email saying it is available..  The response came

Hello
for the bike the offer price is € 900.
the offer reason is because I live in Italy, and the bike should be sent in my city, so the shipping costs around 500 €.
I want to know, the bike has engine problems? Abuto has problems in
I Await your kind reply. Yours sincerely.
Antonio

I was pretty happy for that Offer 🙂 so Replied back ..

Hi

I have no idea how to ship it to italy. There were no problems with the engine , I been driving it around .. but this year its just been sitting in the garage .. hence selling it

I have tons of spare parts also along with it , almost everything .

Thanks
Bik

 

The reply came ..

Hello.
So you accept my offer of € 900?
For shipment I inform me and I’ll let you know.
In the event that I agree to buy your bike, after seeing her in Italy and above all it checked by the mechanic, if you have problems we should feel.
It is a sign of assurance that I ask you, why
motorcycle goes first checked and then paid. I think even you would agree ..

This made me a bit curious, I wrote back

Hello

so you want me to send the motorcycle to Italy.. You will get it checked by a garage. and then pay me ..
What happens if you dont like the bike .. Who sends it BACK.. and What happens if you do not pay me after getting the bike in italy ..

Thanks

 

And the funniest was the reply.. have a read of this .. first the MATHS does not fit at all and I am a bit bamboozled

Hello.
Just what you say!
So I pay 50% deposit then shipping in Italy I checked by a mechanic. If there are problems I pay less according to the work that will have to carry the bike.
For example: the bike costs 900 € you pay at the beginning € 450 in Italy to the port there will be work to do than controlling costs 200/300 €, you pay the difference at the end ie 150/200 €.
I hope you understand.

 

I don’t understand the Maths as I said , I get 450 .. I pay 450 to port, then 200/300 for something .. so that makes 750.. he has offered 900 Euros.. which means I get 150 euros for the BIKE and that is also up in air .. once the bike lands in Italy I may not get anything 🙂

So basically I am selling the bike for 150 and doing all the exporting etc .. 🙂 BARGAINnnnnnnnnnnn

Or am I reading something Wrong here …

This has been Long pending as I have been on and off Blogging.  The A to Z challenge is also started today so I thought what best way then to start it with a Cheer..

A

It is lucky that the Award comes from a person whose name also starts with an A.. Amira gave this award to me .

liebster-award

According to the Rules I got to answer some of the questions .. Which are as follows ..

1. Describe yourself in seven words…

Seven words are surly too less to describe me 🙂  but here it goes

I AM ME – EVERYTHING GOOD  BAD UGLY 

that is 7 words 🙂

2.What keeps you up at night?

I am a sound sleeper, the moment my head hits the pillow ,  I am Zonked out..

3.Whom would you like to be?

No one really. I feel we are all unique, just be yourself why would we want to be like someone else. God made us all for a purpose lets try to find that and concentrate on that, why do we want to become like somebody else and do what they would do. That will double our work list for sure. 🙂

4. Why do you choose to be that person? (this makes it easier answering doesn’t it?)

N/A

5. What scares you?

LIFE. don’t want to sound grumpy or anything like that , but Life does scare me especially with the way things are , the way people are. I sometimes feel I was born too late, should have been born 40 -50 years earlier when people were at least not so much of hypocrites , as they are now.

6. What are the best and worst things about blogging?

Well the best thing is meeting so many people, knowing so many, even if we have not met personally it is a good sense or feeling to know that someone somewhere is thinking of you , or is worried. Like I found out when i was off blogging so many beautiful people asking If I am OK or not.

The worst thing that I feel is this hypocrisy among bloggers , this selfish attitude of a few , this you scratch my back I will scratch yours attitude. People like me get sucked into a false sense of relationship that oh the person on the other side is genuine but alas it does not turn out that way.

7. What was the last blog you looked at?

The last blog I visited was a lovely blog written by Beloo Mam

8. If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be?

Not be an Idiot any more… 🙂

9.If I want to read only one blog post from your blog, which post should I read?

Oh no, I don’t think I write that well that I  can recommend any of my posts, rather it is the other way round I should be thanking all the lovely people who come over to this blog and spend their precious time reading what I write.

So Thank you Everyone.

10.Tell us something about the person who tagged you.

What can I say THIS PERSON IS THE BEST.. she thought me worth enough of passing an AWARD. Definitely the BEST PERSON IN THE WORLD and a very good blogger too.

11. What is the one question that I should be asking you, instead of all of the above?

Oh boy, Now this has got me thinking. What is it that I want to be asked….

hmmmmmmmmm

mmmmmmmmmmmmm

Well I guess the best question we can ask another human being is , Hello How are you doing..

It goes a long way, a simple question.

PUNJAB MERA RAHE WASDA

(Hey the man with the DHOL(drum), beat it , and sing the song, that as a flower is loved by everyone same way let my PUNJAB be loved to , let it live forever)

I remember the time when Punjab state was one of the most rich state, it was supposedly the state which fed the whole of the country .. But over the years things have changed drastically.. first the terrorism and now the political .. Actually hold on let me rephrase that.. The state of Punjab was always given a Step motherly treatment by the centre govt. I am sure no one can deny that.. look what that has done to this state.. (carved three states from one state),  then terrorism happened which took us so many years behind , A whole generation of Punjabi youth was finished , disintegrated in those years.. the after math of that we are still feeling and some of us are living the horror.

The Government as usual is only busy in filling their own coffers, no one has time for that man, The man who gets up early morning no matter what the weather is like rainy,chilly, hot … He gets up to go and tend to his farmland, his animals.. a Typical day in the life of a farmer .. I know because I have done it .. been there ..worn the tee 🙂

Get up at the first light of about 4:30/5 in morning , It a different story that if you did not get up the village Gurudwara’s granthi made sure you get up when he started with his daily routine on the Speakers..

Go to the fields to take a round , by the time you got back the ladies in the house had the fire burning, stoves ready .. getting the food ready .. Breakfast would be a Big Mug full of Lassi, with Paranthas… and off to fields .. Tilling the land, sowing the seeds, watering the fields , etc etc a non stop day of work .. work and more work.. with little respite from weather.. sun shining hard and mighty .. or the winter chill going right inside to the bones .. Feet went numb when watering the fields in the middle of the night …

But all that was worth  the hardship, when the first green leaf appeared from the soil .. It also meant the start of problems –  not one but so many of them …

Typically it is like either the Motor to the tube well burnt cause of the fluctuations in electricity, you get that fixed then there would be a problem with the tubewell itself.. Sometimes the water level would go down , with no water or there was  draught like situation… OR it would rain so much that there is excess of water  and we get floods…

The farmer has no other way then to go and get a loan from the bank, and hope that next season things will be different, with a bumper crop he can get rid of the loan, and earn some money.. the whole life cycle starts all over again .. but its the same outcome and this time he has not been able to pay the instalment also… So now he has no crop, plus a defaulter with the bank.. he sleeps hungry the one who feeds the whole nation. Farmers have a bad life, they are going to die one day struggling..

The loan gets passed on to family members who are left behind after the death of the person who took the loan.

If the crop gets a decent start then the new age diseases take over, Nature plays havoc.. Chet Singh says the rent of the land was Rs 50,000 per acre and Gurjeet had sown cotton there. “Weeks after Gurjeet’s death, whitefly ate up the cotton crop; Rs 14,000 per acre were spent to raise the crop and Rs 8,000 per acre has come as compensation. The debt still stands.” 

His son is jobless, no work .. and daughters are grown now. they have to be married soon .. Which well can he throw himself down to die, that’s why they think that its better to die than live like this every day, Why did this Farmer kill himself Hour before his daughter was to get Married

What is going to happen to our farmers, not just in Punjab but everywhere its the same story.. We who live in the cities take everything for granted, do we sit for once and think about those who are actually providing for us, We go to a shop and buy the stuff with our money, the money which we MAY have earned after working hard.. but just imagine the plight of that farmer who is working so much harder than us, so we can eat, Yet he does not get what is due to them.

We the people of a great nations are arguing over stupid things , spending hours on useless things, We need to Wake up, All this development that we keep barking about, is not good if the backbone of our country is broken and FARMERS are those backbone of our great nation.

So many farmers are committing suicides these days because of the intense pressure they are living under, it is sad. Every day there is a new story that gets published which tells a horrific story.

The Tribune is doing one such series, I have put links to some of there posts and it is heart rendering. The Tribune series on suffering families of farmers in Punjab who have committed suicide has evoked tremendous response from readers, many of who have expressed a wish to extend help. To facilitate contact with the families, they have given the names and phone numbers of the persons mentioned in the stories, or contacts in their families. 

BUT A PIECE OF ADVICE TO ALL WHO WANT TO HELP, PLEASE DON’T GIVE TO CHARITIES OR RELIGIOUS BODIES OR POLITICAL BODIES AS ALL THAT MONEY NEVER REACHES THE NEEDY.  IF SOMEONE WANTS TO HELP CONTACT THE PEOPLE DIRECTLY.

 

The SGPC which is a SIKH Religious body has so much money in its account , yet I have never heard any of it being used to save a life of a farmer.

The last time I visited my village we had a game of cricket at 5am in morning some pics..

As I woke up today I felt something different Not sure what but the day felt different, I sent a txt to a friend of mine here in uk to remind him about the 11am meet at the local club where a lot of fellow Indians who love their country were going to meet, as it is the Martyrdom day of three martyrs Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev and Rajguru, We have this get together once every month, usually it is on a weekend but today was a special day. After all the three great men had given the ultimate sacrifice without a second thought, just for the love of the nation. How many can we count who have done that or COULD do it.

It brought a thought that imagine if it was 1931 what atmosphere it would have been that day, the frenzy of the people when they got to know that the three hero’s had been hanged and that they took to the gallows smiling. Been wondering sometimes, what it would be, to actually be alive during the times of Sardar Bhagat Singh. It’s one thing to watch the movies describing him, his ideas what he did, how it all happened, but to be actually there is different.

Thousands of people who stood outside the jail, waiting to hear a word about their heroes, Imagine the FEAR the rulers had , How afraid they were of the Three young men, IMAGINE if it was 30 Young men or 300 Young men, If that can be made true today, imagine what 300 Young men can do for the love of their Country.

I sometimes think if I was at that age, am I cut up for such sacrifices, would I be able to do what the heroes at that time did. Would I have had the courage to defy the Government at that time? Or would I be a coward running scared? or worst be an obedient citizen going about my daily chores of life without batting an eyelid, cause that’s what most were doing otherwise how could a handful of British rule so many.

It makes me angry when I see a tom dick and harry, a two-bit politician taking all the glory BUT my blood boils in anger when I think of the people in our nation , WE are a BILLION PLUS and yet we let the idiots rule us, brought a memory when BJP won the elections a few months back so much was being said about this will happen that will happen.. but WHAT HAS HAPPENED. We are still there , Look what happened a week back in Kolkata, to an OLD NUN 72 years old. That sums up everything on what we have become and WHAT great citizens we are of the great nation.

I am sure many of you will be saying OH this is isolated incident IS IT, every other week a gruesome atrocity is being done.. NOW just try to compare that with the days or the time in 1930-31, Imagine the JOSH, The vigour in the hearts of the YOUNG of that era, The love for the nation the love was so much they were ready to give their Life, Not RAPE the nation.

Yet people say we are advancing I am sorry it does not feel like that..

The youth of 1931 said Let us see how steadfast I am. One of my friends asked me to pray. When informed of my atheism, he said, “When your last days come, you will begin to believe.” I said, “No, dear sir, Never shall it happen. I consider it to be an act of degradation and demoralization. For such petty selfish motives, I shall never pray.” Reader and friends, is it vanity? If it is, I stand for it… (Bhagat Singh said that)

It was today so many years back that the youth of the nation showed the rulers that they were no longer afraid to walk the talk , to walk up to that platform where they would KISS death and smilingly happily die for the nation, Hoping to be reborn YET AGAIN so they could try once again to free our great nation from the chains it was bound by, yes THEY believed in that , pity today they will probably die of SHAME if re-born, to see the state of our nation. Where WE the people have brought it to.

Here we are in the year 2015 yet again on the same fateful day, how many of us remember the Brave three , who gave their life in a hope for a better future for us , the US who don’t deserve this freedom, the US who have never ever done anything for our nation and probably will never do, the US who are hand in glove with the corrupt , the bad the traitors .. YES i call myself and others a traitor for we are seeing all this happen in our nation yet we go about as if nothing has happened, we don’t bat an eyelid over what is going on …

Jo bhara nahin hai bhavon se

(That heart that does not have emotions, that does not have BLOOD running, That is not a  heart  it is  Stone,  that does not have the love of Country in it)

 

jisme na nijh gaurav

woh nar nahin hai

Passu hai nira Mritak ke samaan hai

(The one who has no self-respect, or is proud of his country, that is not a MAN but a Dead person an ANIMAL they are)

When will the time come when we will all stand up together and do something , or have we gotten so shameless that we are not dreading the day when we will also reach where these martyrs are now looking down upon us, what will we say to them when they ask us “IS this why they gave their lives”..  HOW – WHAT will we say to them ..

When will the time come when indians will start to think that Time has come to re-sow the guns in our fields.. as the little Bhagat singh did ..

The only thing that has changed since independence is the color of the skin of the looters , it was white then Now its brown.

Here is something that I would love everyone to hear ,  Put the volume at normal and close your eyes Just listen..   a little tribute to the martyrs .. Hope we do something for them for our country which will make them proud of their fellow citizens , I know you all are very busy, but do spend some time listening , maybe it will wake us all up to do something someday.. just maybe

January is over and although I tried my level best to remain true to the rules of the blogathon , I failed a few times to post a post each day of the month, So sorry for that to the fellow participants and Congrats to all who managed to do it all..

I wanted to finish this little run with something that I believe in and want everyone who comes here to know. I am going to introduce you all to a person who all his life worked for the goodness of human beings, his selfless devotion to mankind. His name is Bhagat Puran singh. Not many KNEW about him because he did not have a AUDI with a Red light atop, He did not wear Silk or Saffron clothes, like every other TOM DICK AND HARRY claiming to be the righteous one.

SADLY we the people have always been lured to the magic of MONEY the magic of SHOW OFF, or SHOW BLITZ.. hundreds million of us go to the Temples – Gurudwara’s to worship, Ask god for this or that all the time , we all seem to get this false happiness in our heart that OH today we visited a holy place so god will be happy with us, We do various things to please the almighty YET we all including me seem to forget the basic teaching given to us by our God’s which says be a good human being, help others do what you can with your heart. NONE of us do that , we go about following the so-called BABA’s , the modern-day BABA’s who have tarnished the reputation of religion to a very low low level.

I have a good friend who is so happy that he boasts that every sunday he goes to the Gurudwara for two hours for SEWA, He stand and helps in washing of utensils, distribution of Langar, Clean the floors BUT I AM SORRY this is not SEWA, not at all, How can it be. Sewa is towards the needy, helping of fellow humans, MAJORITY of the people who visit the religious places are well off and can take care of themselves, So serving them food is not SEWA, or washing their utensils is Not SEWA, he has never done that in his own home.

Anyway Coming back to this man who was in Reality a man of god , and worked all his life in selfless devotion of other humans. HOW many know about him and compared to that how many know about the Rampal’s the nirmal’s. This is the hard truth people who actually work for the good of Man kind are seldom known. What have the so-called BABA’s EVER done which is good of mankind, NAME or Give me one such incident where ACTUALLY these so-called BABA’s have done anything for good other than become RICH.

Same goes for other charities, I think the best paid JOB or BUSINESS is to open up a charity, all the money we give to these charities hardly reaches to the people for whom the charities are set up, the so-called directors of charities are always RICH and MILLIONAIRES.

Our Religious Leaders are always so rich, How come they have so much money, Why are their so many fights over the ownership of a Religious place’s office, because of the Money involved, Today if everyone vows to stop putting money in the money-box of a temple or a Gurudwara all these committee members, the Pardhan’s, The Leaders will VANISH. God does not need money so WHY Are we putting all this money in the money boxes, When has God said give me money , I need money.

It is our fault that we have made it like this, we are so happy to go and put some money in a money-box in a temple, but we would not go out of our way to help a needy person, or even to feed a hungry person. Hence the business of religion has started were we feel that because we have given some money or a lot of money to a religious place , we have done a good deed, God will be happy with us..

People who actually work hard for the good of mankind that too selflessly are rarely rich or have the money to throw around.

Bhagat Puran Singh was born on June 4, 1904 in Punjab. he has dedicate his life to the ‘selfless service of humanity’. He founded Pingalwara in 1947 with only a few patients, the neglected and rejected of the streets of Amritsar., The govt of india takes so much appreciation for the so-called Green revolution but this man was actually An early advocate of the movement, He was spreading awareness about environmental pollution, and increasing soil erosion long before such ideas became popular in our country,.

He founded a HOME called Pingalwara, a home which long after his death, is still tending to the castaways of society: the sick, disabled and abandoned forlorn people.

It is sad that our governments and leaders go on and on how the needy need to be helped, how they spend so much money for the good of needy, YET none of the so-called CHARITABLE organisations have gone out of their way to help Pingalwara, We the people even will go and donate hundreds , thousands to a Temple or a Gurudwara, A Sadhu comes at our door we will give money to them BUT We hardly take out time to give money to such an institute which is doing so good.

There are hardly any Religious places which do what Pingalwara does, some do but then I find their office bearers take majority of the money for themselves.

Anyway I am not going to go on and on About this man, I am sure everyone has internet so go and do some surfing and Find out about this Great man who sadly passed away in 1992, I think this man’s work does the speaking I or anyone does not need to write essays about him. He shines above all and we need people like him to make our world a better place. So go and Read about this Selfless man, Know about a Kind Human being who teaches us what being a human is .

Also a Movie is made , I saw the trailer a couple of days back, I know some people here who have been so actively involved in the advertising of this movie, I would have been their at the launch of this movie but the last 3-4 weeks have been very catastrophic for me , so I could not go nevertheless do go and see this movie, know about a GOOD MAN.

Visiting pingalwara this year when I come to india is on the list , A lot of good people here are trying to raise some donations for me to carry.. It is an eye-opener to see Life as is in this home, The stories you hear , the smiling faces you see tell the whole story, I could not visit last year due to less time which again I feel is an excuse on my part , I should have made time but god willing this time for sure..

In the Title I had put the line othe amla de hone ne nabade  kissie ne teri Zaat puchni.. DOnt know what all we are running after in life, No one is going to bother what Race,Creed , color we are once we are dead.. it’s all the SAME..

Padi namaaz te Niyaaj na sukhiya,
Teriyan kis kaam padiyan namaazan

Ilam padiya te amal na kita,
Teriyaan  kis kaam kitiyan ibadaan

bulle shah pata odon lag si, jado chidi fasi hath baajan

Read the holy scriptures,
but you got no knowledge from it ..
Whats the use of Reading all that

All knowledge that you got ,
You did not act on them..
What use is that Knowledge..

Bulle Shah – Come to know the Truth when a Hawk has the Sparrow

othe amla de hone ne nabade  kissie ne teri Zaat puchni 
othe amla de hone ne nabade kissie ne teri jaat puchni

jhoothe maan tere jhoothe sab chehre
kissie nahin teri zaat puchni

oithe amla de hone ne nabade kissie ne teri zaat puchni- 

Up there is where all will end, NO one will ask what RACE-CREED you are

Its all a Lie this prestige-pride you talk off
No one is going to ask what Race-Creed you are

liebster-award

So let me thank all , Thank you so much Tandooripanipurilife , Chipmunk , DwindowSeat,Alka Narula Its been a long long time Since I got an award yayyyyyyyyyyyy, I feel honoured. Thank you. I am blessed to have such lovely human beings who are so nice and genuine people. Thank you all for being so good to me, God bless you all and here’s wishing all your dreams always come true..

1.
Tandooripanipurilife Gave me the following questions to Answer..

Here, we go!!

1. What made you start blogging?How is blogging different than keeping a diary for you or is it the same?

I need to thank a Lovely human being who made me start the blog a few years ago now, I did write a diary earlier and YES i do think blogging and writing a diary are two very different things, First of all a diary is very personal as no one gets to read what it says, while a blog is read by so many and all who read make up their own image of who you are. Which can end up good or bad. Also blogging actually helps as people who genuinely read you will hopefully give you some advice , which will help one in becoming a better human being.,

2. Do you have a pet? If yes, which one? And if not, why?

Well I love pets, back home in india , I have a few and I miss them like anything. Here in UK I got some fish and that’s about it , I did have a dog called rocky , who I kept for a few weeks but gave it back as I felt I was being horrible to him. I left for work early morning and came back late night, Rocky had to remain alone which was not fair on him.

3. Which city do you think is the best to settle down in India? And why?

Well off course MY CITY, CHANDIGARH.. the best place on earth for sure where my Mom and All my friends Live. I have lived my childhood and my youth in that city, have had the best time of my life in there. It has been beautifully planned, big clean, broad roads. The rock garden, the Rose garden, the lake, the movie theaters, the eating places, “Hot Millions”, “Tehal Singh” , The “Golden rooster” in sector 8, missing the lovely chicken soup. OH GOD now I have got all emotional

4. What is the one thing that you ordered in a restaurant and it turned out to be totally yuck and expensive?

Oh this happened this week, Went to Chiquito’s and WHAT A MISTAKE IT WAS, I had gone to visit my cousin and we planned to go for dinner to this Mexican place,Had to book a seat, the lady on the phone told us that the heating was off, so it might be a bit cold, That did not bother us much as it was not that cold, We went and made ourself comfortable. Now I do eat a lot so I ordered something that sounded HUGE and also it was the most expensive in the menu 🙂 I can be greedy I know. So I ordered this Chicken & Chorizo Skewer, for almost £15 pounds.. which boasted of “Succulent chicken breast skewered with chorizo and mixed peppers and served with lime & tequila sauce” before that we had a sharing platter of nachos and I ordered a Margarita while waiting for the food.. Mine was supposed to be a sizzler too, so out it came and the sizzling sound made my mouth water .. at the thought of having this whole thing ALONE.

the girl put the dish in front of me reminding me to be careful of not touching the metal plate that was very hot.. so picture this a Hot plate with TONS of Onions sliced.. sizzling, and On top of that were TWO KEBABS oh yes it was nothing but TWO kebabs with chicken pieces and different coloured Peppers..

20130301-224809

I took One bite , it was COLD.. it was like they had taken two kebabs from a freezer, put it in microwave for a couple of minutes , put them on a HOT plate with lots of onions JOB DONE.. The worst ever dish I have had and PAID for it tooooo … Never again , I left half of it on the plate.. then went to a local Indian Punjabi pub ordered a Chicken Tikka with a Nann .. that cost me £3/-.. Yummyliscious that filled my stomach 🙂 Nothing can beat that now can it ..

5. If you see your enemy (or simply somebody you dislike) in a helpless situation, will you go forward and help them? Or leave them and enjoy mercilessly?

I think I know for a fact that I am an Idiot and it has been proven a lot many times , hardly learn from my mistakes. I would probably go and help them out . But I am one who never forgets what they did to me and I will never be friends again with them no matter what ..

6. Have you ever been caught by your parents doing something totally inappropriate for your age?

Inappropriate well , how can someone says its inappropriate because if I did anything like this , then I did it because I thought it to be appropriate.. :). Although I must say I have a long list , I have done a lot of stupid things. I have had a drink or two and got caught.. I had had a fight with someone and got caught.. I remember one incident one of the Teachers had refused to fill up my lecture’s in second year and we had to have 75% attendance to get the roll number, I had requested the teacher to help me out , but he would not budge .. So we declared a strike in college and I remember Walking into lecture rooms asking everyone to Vacate the college as We had called a Strike.

As I was going out .. in walks my Father with his friend who was My English teacher and Saw me Shouting at the students ..

it was an embarrassing moment as I was supposed to be a good boy at home 🙂 he he he he

7. What is that one thing that you criticize publicly, but do the same in private?

hmmmm .. I am not sure. I probably do a lot But I do my best to do what I say .. and I do wish god gives me the strength to do it all the time ..

8. Do you like water sports? Which one?

I LOVE THEM.. I have done a lot now, Jet ski ( Oh I have an experience in that, I had gone to Australia , gold coast where me, my brother-in-law and two kids went for a jet ski, one child with me and the other with him, we ere enjoying so much riding the waves , etc etc , when all of it finished as we were heading back to park the Ski, my nephew says , MAMU let me touch the water and he bent over, his hand did not reach the sea so I bent to the side a bit more, The next moment We were both in the water with the SKI on top of us .. As we came up, all I could hear was the little guy shouting SHARK SHARK he he he he .. so we managed to climb up the ski but to our bad luck when I tried getting up because of my weight (OVER WEIGHT) we went down again ) … he he he he

Speed boats, Scuba dive.. it is FUN

9. Have you ever thought (or actually did ) of harming somebody very badly in order to get back at them? How?

Yepp .. when I was growing up college time was the time of gangs and trying to be the strongest group in college so we have had a few major fights etc.. I have been hospitalised a couple of times with stab wounds , broken leg .. but then those days are long gone I have grown up now well so I think 🙂

10. Do you fart and behave like the other person is guilty of the crime?

Oh yes.. have you used the Fart balloon.. it is fun in a crowd you press that balloon and it makes that funny noise, suddenly there is an odd silence 🙂 he he he Yes I am bad like that.

11. Have you ever been caught by the police ( or worst locked up)? For what reason?
