U.S. Patent No. 6368227

U.S. Patent No. 6368227
Covers the method of swinging on a swing. So if you are in the US and want to sit on a swing, get ready to pay royalties to 5 year old Steven Olson.
Doesn't come much as a surprise, given that someone patented fire and wheel.

I think i can apply for a patent on "A liquid chemical prepared by the complex atomic conjunction of molecular hydrogen and molecular oxygen, that supports and sustains the highly organized auto-cannibalizing system naturally emerging from conditions common on planetary bodies, and consisting of a population of replicators capable of mutation, around each set of which a homeostatic metabolizing organism, which actively helps reproduce and/or protect the replicator(s), has evolved and derivations thereof"

For more info on such patents and the flaws in the US patent system: IEEE Article on US patents

PS: How many patents does 6 year old Calvin have? His dad is a patent attorney.

An Astrological Predicament

There is this never ending debate if Astrology is a science or a non-science. It is funny, how one can think that one's life is governed by stars, planets and other cosmic bodies. People even go to the extent of identifying common behavioural traits under every sun sign. But I have a question to ask:
Let me assume that astrology has its credibility and is something to be believed. And that cosmic dust has more role to play in my future than the decisions I make. Now, as far as I know, astrology uses a predefined set of planets and stars and their locations in the sky.
But what about the stars and planets that have been discovered recently?
I mean, if Mars and Jupiter can influence the course of my life,
What influence does the asteroid belt that is in between them have on me?

Zaheera sheikh and her siblings have been changing their stances as witnesses in the Godhra riots more often than they change their clothes.
First it was she, then her elder brother, her elder sister and another brother.
Have they been bribed? Well that is what this NDTV news article claims.
If not money, atleast mirinda has exchanged hands. Arre bhaiyya, Mirinda ka
Taste aisa chaye character fislaa jaaye.

Hmmm, think the family can replace the Blue Man Group as brand ambassador's of the drink. ;-)
