Tweet, Buzz and Scrap

It is the era of social networking. I have fallen prey to the evil of facebook,twitter, google buzz, linked in et.al. And as a ritual, i do the following like many others.

Logging on to facebook and checking out others' status messages
Entering google buzz and reading all shit that appears
Opening Linkedin and look for jobs and forums
Reading Gtalk status messages of all and sundry on my chat list
Open an email forward that floods my mailbox every morning

And as a result of these regular exercises...here are a few things from these spaces that caught my attention over the last few days.


Nothing's fair...except in love and war...because in love and war there are no reservations!!

If fire fighters fight fires and crime fighters fight crime, what do freedom fighters fight?

Internet Explorer Six, resident of the interwebs for over 8 years, died the morning of March 1, 2010 in Mountain View, California, as a result of a workplace injury sustained at the headquarters of Google, Inc.

Life was much simpler when Apple and Blackberry were just fruits

It is not length of life, but depth of life.

Live it or lie it

My name is Nithyananda and I am not a saint!

People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing – that’s why they recommend it daily

Every man dies; Not every man truly lives.

There are three sides to any argument. Your side, My side and the Right side.

These eye catching flicks come and go in our lives and i have realized that it is thought provoking and fascinating to revisit them time and again.

P.S: Having started this thread, i would make it a point to bring more of these timely and famous brickbats that catch one's attention from the social networks like a summary, once every month on this blog..

P.P.S: Only the first on that list is my own composition. The authorship of the rest should be rightly attributed to those who created them. I do not take credit for the rest on the list.
