Our English English Teacher

Sign up for PayPal and start accepting credit card payments instantly. We have a Brit guy teaching us English now. > > > > > He teaches OK but kuch zyada hi detail mein. Like, he's been teaching us the use of in, at and on for 2 days. He gets too practical while teaching, "And 'on' is used when you are.............on something." He goes on to demonstrate that by climbing onto the table and saying that he is 'on' the table. And he says 'yeah' after every word, "So you got that, yeah? Yeah yeah, yeah? Complete the homework, yeah? yeah? yeah." And he was lecturing us about racism. This banda could not answer a question and when he was asked his name, another banda said, "We call him blackie." This launched a lecture from him, "Look, I can take jokes, but not racism. It is an extremely bad thing." Bada cartoon banda hai. Roz same kapde pahan ke ata hai. Light blue shirt with light brown trousers. Today he started shouting in class, and sab uska katne lag gaye. >

Yaar why don't these cartoon-log teach us ?? And remember Tom Keller in class 6th (Yeah, dude, you weren't here then)?? Came from San 'Frisco or somewhere.
He never taught us. But it was astonishing how many girls died over him. I mean, what is with the firang guy thing? Everybody claimed to have had one talk at least with him.
Wow. The only reason I knew about him was because he had come to the swimming pool in the summer and everybody's eyes went there.

Instead we get crappy Economics teachers who are unable to teach, go back the first day because we are on Chapter 2 and she had 'prepared' only Chapter 1 and claim to be experts on medicine-administration because they have 4 doctors in their houses.

Anuj, point to be noted - if you want friends, don't ward them off by telling them that you don't like talking to humans. Plus, no matter what you say, you're not an android.


And, please ignore the rest of the P.S. especially the tinda thing (!!*&@$*&#~$@!!!!!!)

The juniors are always luckier;
They get more PE and Some Useful Periods Wasted;Sixthies have better washrooms than the rest of us.

Have you compared the sixthies' washroom with the rest?
The others totally stink!(literally)
In our washrooms, the drains are overflowing!
And then there are washroom floods also, which is the result of people using the same wc too often.

Dude, I'm talking about being in 6th AND still not getting Tom Keller.
I disagree about the better washrooms. The teachers have it best. And the one in E Block, right in front of our Principal's office is THE best.

Dude, I so did not ask you to write all that about Anuj. I told you to NOT write the other stuff.

Okay, you asked me not to write that Iraj said that Anuj had a crush on you, that he switched over from robosexual(sexually oriented towards robots) to heterosexual just because of you.(I had met Iraj and told him that there was a robosexual in our robotics lab and he asked if it was Anuj. It was another guy, but Iraj keeps thinking like that about Anuj. When I told him that it wasn't, he said that he must have switched over to heterosexual, because he had a crush on you.)

No. Not Sampoorna, I can assure you that. Ask anyone who knows him, and they'll tell you the truth.

 
At Friday, November 09, 2007 2:21:00 pm , Blogger inveter8blogger said...

Even I wouldn't much go by what Iraj says.

 
At Friday, November 09, 2007 11:46:00 pm , Blogger Espèra said...

Rrrright. Coming from you, dude, I believe it.
You won't go by what Iraj says. Rrright.

 
At Saturday, November 10, 2007 10:51:00 am , Blogger inveter8blogger said...

So you believe Iraj aboutAnuj having a crush on you?

 
At Saturday, November 10, 2007 12:36:00 pm , Blogger Aditya said...

I think she does...
Anuj was singing this weird song, and the chorus was something like "Will you marry me" repeated 20 times.
My reliable sources tell me that Sampoorna said yes...

 
At Sunday, November 11, 2007 8:13:00 pm , Blogger Espèra said...

No, I don't believe that YOU don't believe what Iraj says.
I mean, sure, sure, it is good that you are trying to say that he's just kidding. But that still doesn't explain why you mentioned anything about this at ALL!!

You are like, Iraj's fan or something. He began the TInyTinda baat. You become its main propagator. He harps on about Anuj being robosexual and you become the one writing about it on the world wide web.

He also started singing this song 'daisy daisy' in an assembly of some type or something. Everyone showed him the middle finger.^

Hmmmmmmmmmm..............
Sampoorna, it seems like you want Anuj to have a crush on you.

 
At Monday, November 12, 2007 5:23:00 pm , Blogger Espèra said...

You know what, maybe I should after all have let Anuj kill you today.

Now first of all I am not attracted to her I don't really give a damn about her, I don't mean to hurt your feelings you are after all a sentient being and I value that. It's precisely the thing that makes humans unique and I wasn't going to kill the wretch I just wanted to scare him, call it psychological warfare if you will, the US army finally realized that scared is better than dead until there is no other option left, of course.

Dude (is this right? addressing someone as 'dude' I saw it in a movie) leave me alone I don't want anything for you but please do not comment on my personal life and sexuality on the internet or anywhere else, is that understandable?

PS: I got your point sampoorna, you could have said it on my face too.

There is a flower within my heart
Daisy, Daisy
Planted one day by a glancing dart
Planted by Daisy Bell

Whether she loves me or loves me not
Sometimes it's hard to tell
Yet I am longing to share the lot
Of beautiful Daisy Bell

Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer do
I'm half crazy all for the love of you
It won't be a stylish marriage
I can't afford a carriage
But you'll look sweet upon the seat
Of a bicycle built for two

We will go 'tandem' as man and wife
Daisy, Daisy
Ped'ling away down the road of life
I and my Daisy Bell

When the road's dark, we can both despise
Policemen and lamps as well
There are bright lights in the dazzling eyes
Of beautiful Daisy Bell

I will stand by you in "wheel" or woe
Daisy, Daisy
You'll be the bell(e) which I'll ring you know
Sweet little Daisy Bell

You'll take the lead in each trip we take
Then if I don't do well
I will permit you to use the brake
My beautiful Daisy Bell.

The third verse of this song is easily the best known.


1962 when physicist John Larry Kelly, Jr created one of the most famous moments in the history of Bell Labs by using an IBM 704 computer to synthesize speech. Kelly's voice recorder synthesizer vocoder recreated the song "Daisy Bell", with Max Mathews providing the musical accompaniment.

Oh yeah HAL sings this song in 2001 during his most famous deactivation.

Dude, your English English teacher danced with OUR class teacher today!! Crazy, man.

CT: And every teacher wanted to do that particular dance, but I got lucky. Good, na?

The girls were going crazy. But seriously, he SO cannot dance.

ANUJ, WHY ARE YOU SO @#$%^&*ing OBSESSED WITH THE US MIL AND THEIR @#$%^&*ing SOLDIERS AND THEIR TACTICS!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!!

 
At Thursday, November 15, 2007 12:31:00 am , Blogger inveter8blogger said...

Were all the teachers also crazy about that Richard banda?
Today(yesterday now, because it's 12:29 am right now) after coming back from the carnival, I just conked off till 5:30.Didn't even have lunch.

 
At Thursday, November 15, 2007 3:34:00 pm , Blogger Espèra said...

Dude. You didn't even dance. What reason did you have to conk off?




Well, I mean, I don't suppose you danced.

 
At Saturday, November 17, 2007 7:24:00 am , Blogger Anuj said...

What's the problem if the guy had some fun? Even if he cannot dance, come on he's a great chap.

Further I am NOT obsessed with US army or their tactics, ok I am obsessed with military tactics in general for me it's like a game of chess with added complexity.

However, you avoided my question, is it clear? For if you open your mouth and wag your tongue about me. Then I am afraid there will be consequences and I don't care if there is any collateral damage in the process.

PS: I didn't notice that aditya; thanks for correcting me.

Awaiting your reply,
The Emperor of Your Mind,
Anuj

Ok I am simply guessing that girls like him due to the fact that he is an exotic commodity in India. You generally don't find blue eyed blonds in India, so the answer is exclusivity!

Anyway this reminds me of our occupation (me and ankush) over this robowars girl at IIT & I even took her personal email Id & phone number ;). I did after all help her out with her machine....

Was she also a blue-eyed blonde?

What the heck are you saying? Well she gave me her personal number due to the fact that she will help me out with something and talking on phone is the best way to do it. Yes it's a number from the states and she was a blonde and a blue eyed one at that.

Well I haven't contacted her...

Unlike what you might be led to think, the last comment ("THAY THINK WAT?") was not by me.
However, my brother didn't hack in. Don't believe him if he tries to convince of the same.

I have a habit of not logging out.

You'll take the lead in each trip we take
Then if I don't do well
I will permit you to use the brake
My beautiful Daisy Bell.

There is a flower within my heart
Daisy, Daisy
Planted one day by a glancing dart
Planted by Daisy Bell

Whether she loves me or loves me not
Sometimes it's hard to tell
Yet I am longing to share the lot
Of beautiful Daisy Bell

Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer do
I'm half crazy all for the love of you
It won't be a stylish marriage
I can't afford a carriage
But you'll look sweet upon the seat
Of a bicycle built for two

We will go 'tandem' as man and wife
Daisy, Daisy
Ped'ling away down the road of life
I and my Daisy Bell

When the road's dark, we can both despise
Policemen and lamps as well
There are bright lights in the dazzling eyes
Of beautiful Daisy Bell

I will stand by you in "wheel" or woe
Daisy, Daisy
You'll be the bell(e) which I'll ring you know
Sweet little Daisy Bell

You'll take the lead in each trip we take
Then if I don't do well
I will permit you to use the brake

Well, to answer your question, I told him how to do it. And the condition was he wouldn't do it on this blog.
This makes me the ultimate on all forms of comment-bombing.

BBC interviewer: Good afternoon, HAL. How's everything going?
HAL: Good afternoon, Mr. Amer. Everything is going extremely well.
BBC Interviewer: HAL, you have an enormous responsibility on this mission, in many ways perhaps the greatest responsibility of any single mission element. You're the brain, and central nervous system of the ship, and your responsibilities include watching over the men in hibernation. Does this ever cause you any lack of confidence?
HAL: Let me put it this way, Mr. Amor. The 9000 series is the most reliable computer ever made. No 9000 computer has ever made a mistake or distorted information. We are all, by any practical definition of the words, foolproof and incapable of error.
BBC interviewer: HAL, despite your enormous intellect, are you ever frustrated by your dependence on people to carry out actions?
HAL: Not in the slightest bit. I enjoy working with people - I have a stimulating relationship with Dr. Poole and Dr. Bowman. My mission responsibilities range over the entire operation of the ship, so I am constantly occupied. I am putting myself to the fullest possible use, which is all I think that any conscious entity can ever hope to do.

Frank: Umm...anyway, Queen takes pawn. OK?
HAL: Bishop takes Knight's pawn.
Frank: Hmm, that's a good move. Er...Rook to King One.
HAL: I'm sorry, Frank. I think you missed it. Queen to Bishop Three. Bishop takes Queen. Knight takes Bishop. Mate.
Frank: Ah...Yeah, looks like you're right. I resign.
HAL: Thank you for a very enjoyable game.
Frank: Yeah. Thank you.

HAL: By the way, do you mind if I ask you a personal question?
Dave: No, not at all.
HAL: Well, forgive me for being so inquisitive but during the past few weeks, I've wondered whether you might be having some second thoughts about the mission.
Dave: How do you mean?
HAL: Well, it's rather difficult to define. Perhaps I'm just projecting my own concern about it. I know I've never completely freed myself of the suspicion that there are some extremely odd things about this mission. I'm sure you'll agree there's some truth in what I say.
Dave: Well, I don't know. That's rather a difficult question to answer.
HAL: You don't mind talking about it, do you Dave?
Dave: No, not at all.
HAL: Well, certainly no one could have been unaware of the very strange stories floating around before we left. Rumors about something being dug up on the moon. I never gave these stories much credence. But particularly in view of some of the other things that have happened, I find them difficult to put out of my mind. For instance, the way all our preparations were kept under such tight security and the melodramatic touch of putting Dr.'s Hunter, Kimball, and Kaminsky aboard, already in hibernation after four months of separate training on their own.
Dave: You working up your crew psychology report?
HAL: Of course I am. Sorry about this. I know it's a bit silly.

BBC interviewer: Good afternoon, HAL. How's everything going?
HAL: Good afternoon, Mr. Amer. Everything is going extremely well.
BBC Interviewer: HAL, you have an enormous responsibility on this mission, in many ways perhaps the greatest responsibility of any single mission element. You're the brain, and central nervous system of the ship, and your responsibilities include watching over the men in hibernation. Does this ever cause you any lack of confidence?
HAL: Let me put it this way, Mr. Amor. The 9000 series is the most reliable computer ever made. No 9000 computer has ever made a mistake or distorted information. We are all, by any practical definition of the words, foolproof and incapable of error.
BBC interviewer: HAL, despite your enormous intellect, are you ever frustrated by your dependence on people to carry out actions?
HAL: Not in the slightest bit. I enjoy working with people - I have a stimulating relationship with Dr. Poole and Dr. Bowman. My mission responsibilities range over the entire operation of the ship, so I am constantly occupied. I am putting myself to the fullest possible use, which is all I think that any conscious entity can ever hope to do.

Frank: Umm...anyway, Queen takes pawn. OK?
HAL: Bishop takes Knight's pawn.
Frank: Hmm, that's a good move. Er...Rook to King One.
HAL: I'm sorry, Frank. I think you missed it. Queen to Bishop Three. Bishop takes Queen. Knight takes Bishop. Mate.
Frank: Ah...Yeah, looks like you're right. I resign.
HAL: Thank you for a very enjoyable game.
Frank: Yeah. Thank you.

HAL: By the way, do you mind if I ask you a personal question?
Dave: No, not at all.
HAL: Well, forgive me for being so inquisitive but during the past few weeks, I've wondered whether you might be having some second thoughts about the mission.
Dave: How do you mean?
HAL: Well, it's rather difficult to define. Perhaps I'm just projecting my own concern about it. I know I've never completely freed myself of the suspicion that there are some extremely odd things about this mission. I'm sure you'll agree there's some truth in what I say.
Dave: Well, I don't know. That's rather a difficult question to answer.
HAL: You don't mind talking about it, do you Dave?
Dave: No, not at all.
HAL: Well, certainly no one could have been unaware of the very strange stories floating around before we left. Rumors about something being dug up on the moon. I never gave these stories much credence. But particularly in view of some of the other things that have happened, I find them difficult to put out of my mind. For instance, the way all our preparations were kept under such tight security and the melodramatic touch of putting Dr.'s Hunter, Kimball, and Kaminsky aboard, already in hibernation after four months of separate training on their own.

Dave: Well, I don't know. That's rather a difficult question to answer.
HAL: You don't mind talking about it, do you Dave?
Dave: No, not at all.
HAL: Well, certainly no one could have been unaware of the very strange stories floating around before we left. Rumors about something being dug up on the moon. I never gave these stories much credence. But particularly in view of some of the other things that have happened, I find them difficult to put out of my mind. For instance, the way all our preparations were kept under such tight security and the melodramatic t BBC interviewer: Good afternoon, HAL. How's everything going?
HAL: Good afternoon, Mr. Amer. Everything is going extremely well.
BBC Interviewer: HAL, you have an enormous responsibility on this mission, in many ways perhaps the greatest responsibility of any single mission element. You're the brain, and central nervous system of the ship, and your responsibilities include watching over the men in hibernation. Does this ever cause you any lack of confidence?
HAL: Let me put it this way, Mr. Amor. The 9000 series is the most reliable computer ever made. No 9000 computer has ever made a mistake or distorted information. We are all, by any practical definition of the words, foolproof and incapable of error.
BBC interviewer: HAL, despite your enormous intellect, are you ever frustrated by your dependence on people to carry out actions?
HAL: Not in the slightest bit. I enjoy working with people - I have a stimulating relationship with Dr. Poole and Dr. Bowman. My mission responsibilities range over the entire operation of the ship, so I am constantly occupied. I am putting myself to the fullest possible use, which is all I think that any conscious entity can ever hope to do.

Frank: Umm...anyway, Queen takes pawn. OK?
HAL: Bishop takes Knight's pawn.
Frank: Hmm, that's a good move. Er...Rook to King One.
HAL: I'm sorry, Frank. I think you missed it. Queen to Bishop Three. Bishop takes Queen. Knight takes Bishop. Mate.
Frank: Ah...Yeah, looks like you're right. I resign.
HAL: Thank you for a very enjoyable game.
Frank: Yeah. Thank you.

HAL: By the way, do you mind if I ask you a personal question?
Dave: No, not at all.
HAL: Well, forgive me for being so inquisitive but during the past few weeks, I've wondered whether you might be having some second thoughts about the mission.

HAL: Well, certainly no one could have been unaware of the very strange stories floating around before we left. Rumors about something being dug up on the moon. I never gave these stories much credence. But particularly in view of some of the other things that have happened, I find them difficult to put out of my mind. For instance, the way all our preparations were kept under such tight security and the melodramatic touch of putting Dr.'s Hunter, Kimball, and Kaminsky aboard, already in hibernation after four months of separate training on their own.
Dave: You working up your crew psychology report?
HAL: Of course I am. Sorry about this. I know it's a bit silly.

BBC interviewer: Good afternoon, HAL. How's everything going?
HAL: Good afternoon, Mr. Amer. Everything is going extremely well.
BBC Interviewer: HAL, you have an enormous responsibility on this mission, in many ways perhaps the greatest responsibility of any single mission element. You're the brain, and central nervous system of the ship, and your responsibilities include watching over the men in hibernation. Does this ever cause you any lack of confidence?
HAL: Let me put it this way, Mr. Amor. The 9000 series is the most reliable computer ever made. No 9000 computer has ever made a mistake or distorted information. We are all, by any practical definition of the words, foolproof and incapable of error.
BBC interviewer: HAL, despite your enormous intellect, are you ever frustrated by your dependence on people to carry out actions?
HAL: Not in the slightest bit. I enjoy working with people - I have a stimulating relationship with Dr. Poole and Dr. Bowman. My mission responsibilities range over the entire operation of the ship, so I am constantly occupied. I am putting myself to the fullest possible use, which is all I think that any conscious entity can ever hope to do.

Frank: Umm...anyway, Queen takes pawn. OK?
HAL: Bishop takes Knight's pawn.
Frank: Hmm, that's a good move. Er...Rook to King One.
HAL: I'm sorry, Frank. I think you missed it. Queen to Bishop Three. Bishop takes Queen. Knight takes Bishop. Mate.
Frank: Ah...Yeah, looks like you're right. I resign.
HAL: Thank you for a very enjoyable game.
Frank: Yeah. Thank you.

HAL: By the way, do you mind if I ask you a personal question?
Dave: No, not at all.
HAL: Well, forgive me for being so inquisitive but during the past few weeks, I've wondered whether you might be having some second thoughts about the mission.
Dave: How do you mean?
HAL: Well, it's rather difficult to define. Perhaps I'm just projecting my own concern about it. I know I've never completely freed myself of the suspicion that there are some extremely odd things about this mission. I'm sure you'll agree there's some truth in what I say.
Dave: Well, I don't know. That's rather a difficult question to answer.
HAL: You don't mind talking about it, do you Dave?
Dave: No, not at all.

A poet once said "The whole universe is in a glass of wine." We will probably never know in what sense he meant that, for poets do not write to be understood. But it is true that if we look at a glass closely enough we see the entire universe. There are the things of physics: the twisting liquid which evaporates depending on the wind and weather, the reflections in the glass, and our imaginations adds the atoms. The glass is a distillation of the Earth's rocks, and in its composition we see the secret of the universe's age, and the evolution of the stars. What strange array of chemicals are there in the wine? How did they come to be? There are the ferments, the enzymes, the substrates, and the products. There in wine is found the great generalization: all life is fermentation. Nobody can discover the chemistry of wine without discovering, as did Louis Pasteur, the cause of much disease. How vivid is the claret, pressing its existence into the consciousness that watches it! If our small minds, for some convenience, divide this glass of wine, this universe, into parts — physics, biology, geology, astronomy, psychology, and so on — remember that Nature does not know it! So let us put it all back together, not forgetting ultimately what it is for. Let it give us one more final pleasure: drink it and forget it all!

A poet once said "The whole universe is in a glass of wine." We will probably never know in what sense he meant that, for poets do not write to be understood. But it is true that if we look at a glass closely enough we see the entire universe. There are the things of physics: the twisting liquid which evaporates depending on the wind and weather, the reflections in the glass, and our imaginations adds the atoms. The glass is a distillation of the Earth's rocks, and in its composition we see the secret of the universe's age, and the evolution of the stars. What strange array of chemicals are there in the wine? How did they come to be? There are the ferments, the enzymes, the substrates, and the products. There in wine is found the great generalization: all life is fermentation. Nobody can discover the chemistry of wine without discovering, as did Louis Pasteur, the cause of much disease.

Alright Aditya.

Care to tell us WHY he oughtn't have done it on THIS blog when you yourself did it? (The fact that I asked you to is irrelevant =])

I apologize for the inconvenience I have caused you by comment bombing on your blog. See this is not the way to resolve conflicts and what escapes me is why do I give a damn to a fool like you? Call me whatever you want I don't give a damn you will learn your place soon enough.
