Bits and pieces...

First bit... something which i really liked to read...

"You should not fret too much about writers's bloc or artist's bloc or whatever. If you are looking at a blank piece of paper and nothing comes to you, then you go do something else. Writer's bloc is just a symptom of feeling like you have nothing to say, combined with the weird idea that you SHOULD feel the need to say something.
If you have something to say, then say it. Else enjoy the silence for the while"


Ofcourse I did not write this... I read it from the creative writing link that I sent earlier. I wonder how many read it, but if you have not read it, read it for the fun of it.

Another bit
The difference between socialist and capitalist
(My friend was discussing this with me yesterday)
Socialist will GET a cake and distribute EQUALLY among everyone including himself.

A capitalist will make sure that he is able to CREATE a very big cake, and will keep HALF of it to HIMSELF, and distribute the remaining, but still everyone would end up getting more that what they would have otherwise got.

I am not making any judgement calls on socialist and capitalist..... but just it was a something to think about..

Writer's block- that quote summarises the stuffs nicely

and reg capitalist
when he gets a cake, he make sure he finds way to make a big cake and take majority for him. He will layoff the team who worked with him with just severance benefits. He will book a flight to Hawaii for a long vacation. After he comes back, he will again try to repeat this story

@nirek..but I guess he should freak out..because he is generating wealth for everyone..
@arunima..that was very witty :D. You are most welcome for a piece of cake.

if the cake tastes good then getting it from either is fine :-)
