Jay’s Tantra :)

When the time comes that one becomes many and many becomes one, a new bond shall bring forth a destruction of power and an age of lawlessness.

When mountains move and rivers shiver, a secret woman shall mark a generation of health.

There comes a day when what is false seems real, a foolish choice shall bring forth an age of anarchy.

It shall be then, when snow and thunder collide, a man clad in green shall mark the rise of a kingdom.

There once was a man who liked cake.
He said, “See the lovely haik!”
It was rather big,
But not very zig,
And he couldn’t resist the undertake.

Footpath- my Foot! :) Poem by Jay

Footpath

Free verse by jay

The paving material that’s really holed,
Above all others are the polished pavement.
Porous, permanent, polished pavement.
Down, down, down into the darkness of the polished pavement,
Gently they go – the pickled, the muddled, the fixed.

How happy is the clean, dark driveway!
Now cleanable is just the thing,
To get me wondering if the dark driveway is pristine.

When I think of seventh street, I see a bumpy.
Noisy.
Why are they so wooly?

The 2 types of knowledge (and the application of it) %%sep%% Ladders

Cognitive neuroscience has a theory of mind (called predictive processing) that suggests that the human brain is a prediction engine, which consistently creates our perception of the world based on our past interactions within similar environments.

In the beginning, when you are young, there isn’t much information to go off of, so you get mostly unconstrained inputs from the external world into your brain, but as you get older, you start to filter through this variety for usefulness, making better distinctions.

You create mental concepts in your mind about what is important and what is not, and then these concepts shape your future perceptions by using the already-selected knowledge to further select knowledge.

This entire process is mostly intuitive, and what keeps it updating is pain/pleasure, which tells your body that a certain perception and your corresponding reaction should either be reinforced or not. But some forms of experience on the pain/pleasure axis like surprise and awe can be used to intentionally tell your mind that something unexpected was experienced, too, encouraging you to consciously readjust the conceptual model.

Whether you are learning to play a sport or simply trying to create a more accurate mental model of reality in your mind, you are working with a variety of experiences, and within those experiences, you have to choose and reinforce the ones that are the most useful to you.

In this way, everything that you do is essentially an experiment that gets refined and corrected with experience and practice.

The difference between you and, say, a professional tennis player is almost certainly that they have a genome that makes them more suitable to play their sport, but more importantly, they have intuitive knowledge embedded in their brain from all of the predictive processing they have done, in a very specific environment, to refine their sense for what works and what doesn’t.

The same can be said for great artists and scientists, entrepreneurs and investors, and other everyday folks who do what they do well.

Our brain is a prediction engine that builds knowledge and gets smarter as it better aligns what it needs to do with the demands of the environment.

For My Intense Perfume

A Love Poem by jay

Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
Agony is intense,
And so are you.

Orchids are white,
Ghost ones are rare,
An odor is spicy,
And so is your hair.

Magnolia grows,
With buds like eggs,
The doer is thinker,
And so are your legs.

Sunflowers reach,
Up to the skies,
The aroma is pungent,
And so are your eyes.

Foxgloves in hedges,
Surround the farms,
A pine is yellow,
And so are your arms.

Daisies are pretty,
Daffies have style,
My name is pretty,
And so is your smile.

A Perfume is beautiful,
Just like you.

No Rush, No Dawdle: The Secret Of Proper Timing
by Tom Maxwell

[Listen to Audio!]

The present is truly the only place we exist. What we call the past is a construct of memory, the recollection of which constitutes a present experience. According to author Alan Watts, the future is likewise a construct, “and cannot become a part of experienced reality until it is present.” […]

So, to know happiness in the future, we must be happy now. Delaying enjoyment of your life is to always live in Christmas Eve, with the many gifts around you staying securely wrapped.

Moreover, to participate in the moment — to be fully aware, is to be unified with the experience, and free from the separating identity of being the experiencer.

[Watts:] “To understand music, you must listen to it. But so long as you are thinking, ‘I am listening to this music,’ you are not listening. To understand joy or fear, you must be wholly and undividedly aware of it. So long as you are calling it names and saying, ‘I am happy,’ or ‘I am afraid,”’ you are not being aware of it.”

Not only are you not being aware of it, you are creating the “I” who is afraid, and thus, by this separation, guaranteeing fear’s constant threat.

“This is not a psychological or spiritual discipline for self-improvement,” Watts writes. “It is simply being aware of this present experience, and realizing that you can neither define it nor divide yourself from it. There is no rule but ‘Look!’”

Centuries of Occidental society and culture have made grasping, much less embodying, this revolution in thinking very difficult. We are hardened materialists, fully beholden to identity and addicted to distraction. We evade pain and crave security, and doing so assures us painful, insecure lives. The imminent unknown is not to be avoided, but embraced. Our resilience, our adaptability, is reliant upon us being completely sensitive to the moment, and understanding it as being a new, unique experience. We live in a series of infinite nows, which are always dying, and always being reborn. To be immersed in this reality is to be transformed, for it is there that eternity is available.

“For the perfect accomplishment of any art,” Watts tells us, “you must get this feeling of the eternal present into your bones — for it is the secret of proper timing. No rush. No dawdle. Just the sense of flowing with the course of events in the same way that you dance to music, neither trying to outpace it nor lagging behind. Hurrying and delaying are alike ways of trying to resist the present.”

Startup newsletter – your story 

Monday usually has a barrage of news floating in, and this week was no different. This time, in the tech space, Microsoft completed one whole day of being GitHub’s parent company. The opensource community is currently being led by Nat Friedman, ex-CEO of Xamarin.


Interestingly, there has been quite a ripple in the open source market as IBM also announced its plan of acquiring Red Hat for $34 billion, which would be its biggest acquisition to date.


While cloud computing has disrupted industries across the spectrum, this acquisition may just change the landscape of cloud itself. Industry experts are calling this the most significant acquisition of 2018. And rightly so. IBM, which has been undergoing a massive portfolio transformation, is set to emerge a stronger player in the hybrid cloud market by blending its own complex offerings with Red Hat’s open source tools.


One thing we’ve learnt is that the starup industry is full of ups and downs. On one hand, we’ve startups scaling up and securing funding, on the other, BookMyShow, PhonePe, Paytm’s parent company One97 and Flipkart reported losses, despite their rising revenues. 


Cheers,

Bengaluru-based online bus aggregator ZipGo has acquired Pune-based Supreme Trans Concepts, including its bus aggregation platforms, MetroZip and CityZip. While the amounts and details of the deal remain undisclosed, ZipGo now has a 100 percent stake in Supreme Trans Concepts. The acquisition, says ZipGo, makes it the largest technology-driven B2C bus company in India and in line with its decision to make further inroads into the electric vehicle and e-rickshaw space.


Flipkart Internet Private Ltd, which operates the Flipkart marketplace, narrowed its consolidated loss for the financial year 2018 to Rs 1,160 crore as against a loss of Rs 1,640 crore, documents filed with Registrar of Companies (RoC) showed. The ecommerce giant posted an operating revenue of Rs 2,790 crore for the financial year 2018, compared with Rs 1,882 crore, registering a growth of around 48 percent. Group company Flipkart India Private Ltd, which runs the wholesale business, posted a 39 percent rise in revenue to Rs 21,658 crore for FY18, compared with Rs 15,569 crore in the previous fiscal. Unlike the marketplace unit, the wholesale business unit’s net loss widened nine-fold to Rs 2,065 crore.


Contemporary fashion jewellery brand, Sukkhi Online has raised $7 million from Carpediem Capital and Duane Park.

In a bid to attract more startups to the bourses, market regulator SEBI has proposed a relaxation of listing norms. First, it has proposed the renaming of Institutional Trading Platform (ITP) to Innovators Growth Platform (IGP) and has also announced that IGP would be the main platform under which startups can list themselves. Second, startups can now trade under the regular category within a year of their listing. Earlier, they were mandated to complete three years under IGP before making it to the regular category. SEBI has also proposed a reduction in the minimum trading lot size to Rs 2 lakh from the existing Rs 10 lakh.


Ashish Kashyap, the serial entrepreneur who earlier founded Ibibo Group, which was acquired by MakeMyTrip two years ago, has received a seed investment of $30 million for his latest venture INDwealth, which is yet to launch its operations.

Founded in June this year, INDwealth will be a full-stack wealth-tech platform that will leverage artificial intelligence and machine learning and will begin operations in January 2019. It will act as a one-stop solution for users to manage their investments, liabilities, future cash flows and taxation.


Microsoft Corporation became the second most valuable company in the world, overtaking ecommerce platform Amazon on October 26 after the latter posted weak earnings for the third quarter, which pulled its stock down by more than seven percent.  The fall in Amazon’s share price wiped out $65 billion from its market capitalisation. Its market cap now stands at $805 billion, down from $1 trillion in September. Microsoft, on the other hand, reported strong quarterly numbers, which took its stock up four percent to reach a market capitalisation of $828 billion. This is the first time since April that Microsoft’s market cap has surpassed that of Amazon.

5 ways the incredibly well-connected build social capital | Ladders

They’re known as “connectors”
Do others come to you when they’re looking for a new job, moving to a new city, or just looking for a good restaurant? If this becomes a pattern, take this as a sign that you’re a natural connector. The best connectors are comfortable maintaining relationships with seemingly unrelated circles– from their old college buddies to work colleagues to a neighborhood running group.

Connectors have wide networks that also run deep. And because of these relationships, they’re able to connect their friends, family, and colleagues to resources they need. If you’re looking to widen and deepen your network, consider joining a professional club or organization like Harvard Business School Club, Ivy Connect, or Black Female Founders to name a few.

They volunteer
When you give your time to organizations who need it, you’re not just building social capital but good will.

Volunteering for a cause you are passionate about feels good and gives you the opportunity to connect with like-minded people who prioritize the wellbeing of their community and their world.

If you’re not the type to roll up your sleeves at DC Central Kitchen or Habitat for Humanity, plenty of organizations need knowledge workers to donate their writing, communications, and law services pro-bono.

They seek out mentors & mentees
Support is a beautiful thing. And at some point in your professional career you will either be giving or receiving it.

Both a mentor or mentee have the ability to enrich the other. Whether you’re in the position to help or you need guidance, you can earn social capital by providing value as a mentor or mentee. If you’ve reached a dead end in your career, a mentor can help take you to the next level. You can also consider it a mark of your own achievement and mature social capital when you give back in the form of mentorship.

They stay in touch with those who matter
Having lots of contacts is great. But if you have no idea who these people are or how you met them, you’ll have no idea how to leverage your network.

When you add someone to your phone, make a note of where you met them. LinkedIn also has a great feature that lets you enter notes on how or why you made this connection. If you want to go rogue, create a spreadsheet with their contact info and the details of when and how you met them. If it was at a conference and you discussed their newly-launched business, follow-up on how their business is going. Not only does this show you took the time to listen and have an attention-to-detail, but that you also care about their interests.

Use holidays to reach out to those contacts you don’t hear from on a regular basis.

They practice The Law of Reciprocity
Practicing the law of reciprocity is easy. When someone does something nice for you, you do something nice or even more generous in return. Intentions are important when it comes to practicing reciprocity. Helping others with the sole intention of serving your own interests will have an opposite effect on your social capital.

Strange But True Facts About the World’s Richest

Strange But True Facts About the World’s Richest

Ricardo Geromel
Contributor
Innovation, Brazil, China and Billions

In our 27th year of tracking fortunes around the globe, we found 1,426 billionaires. They are the wealthiest of the wealthy.  Though we’ve been at it a long time, it is never an easy task.  Some billionaires cooperate; others don’t. While we were compiling all data about these billionaires we came across some great stories (some new, some not so new). Below are some of my favorites. Try to find out who they are without clicking on their names. Answers are on the next page.

One billionaire is named God. I never thought I would write or read this but, “God was born in Azerbaijan and his net worth is $3 billion.” A real estate tycoon had Mike Tyson as his best man at his $1 million wedding. One has been charged for having sex with an underage prostitute, while another has been charged with having sex with his stepdaughter. The year’s biggest loser saw his fortune evaporate over $53 million per day, on average, during one year while his son hit and killed a cyclist when driving his Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren. A New York  billionaire was banned from celebrity sushi chain Nobu.

Some billionaires enjoy amassing not only enormous amounts of cash but also all kinds of things: The oldest billionaire alive owns one of the world’s biggest beetle collections. A Turkish billionaire, who made his fortune selling beer, owns 3,000 pens and even carries some around. A French tycoon owns over 1,000 comic books.

The stepmother of two billionaires demanded her husband’s body be exhumed for a DNA test years after his death.  There are 9 billionaires who have 10 or more children. The female billionaire with the largest number of children has 9 children. One billionaire has 23 children (extra hint: he is the fourth richest man of his country). There are 23 billionaires who are under 40. The world’s youngest billionaire pitches his own tent at Burning Man.

Many billionaires have also been involved with war: a 91 years old workaholic was a World War II B-17 bomber pilot, another is a Korean War veteran, and this billionaire is a descendant of Koreans and was forced by Stalin to move to Kazakhstan.

This female billionaire can only communicate with her eyes since contracting ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) disease in 2000.

We also have a bunch of one-time athletes: a Japanese billionaire used to be a boxer before joining the business world. Another played at Wimbledon before becoming a beer mogul and his billionaire partner holds multiple world records for underwater spearfishing.

Read on for the billionaire scandals of 2012 or Top Billionaire Scandals of 2011. But remember that billionaires make the headlines not just because of their eccentricities but thanks often to their ingenious invention or their notable philanthropic largesse.

The World’s Billionaires The names, numbers and stories behind the 1,426 people who control the global economy. In Pictures: The Richest People on the Planet
Some answers:

There is a billionaire named God Nisanov. I thought I would never write or read this but, “God was born in Azerbaijan,” he moved to Moscow and made his fortune building shopping markets near metro stations and turning them into shopping complexes. God’s net worth is $ 3 billion.

Jeff Greene got rich investing in real estate and superrich betting against it. Former heavyweight boxing champ Mike Tyson was the billionaire’s best man at his $1 million wedding. The ceremony took place in a 27-acre Beverly Hills canyon estate named Palazzo Di Amore which Greene bought out of foreclosure for $35 million and spent $15 million renovating.

Bunga Bunga king, Silvio Berlusconi, worth $6.2 billion, still has pending charges against him for having sex with an underage prostitute.

Tuncay Ozilhan is the producer of Turkey’s number one beer brand, Efes. He is worth $1.6 billion and has a collection of more than 3,000 pens and carries some of his pens with him in a suitcase.

There are 23 billionaires who are 90 or older. David Rockefeller, 97, is the world’s oldest billionaire and an insect enthusiast, with one of the biggest beetle collections in the world.

There are 9 billionaires who have 10 or more children. Sulaiman Al Rahji,who has a fortune of $4 billion and is Saudi Arabia 4 richest man, has 23 children.

Stewart Rahr, a New York pharmacy billionaire, got banned from the celebrity sushi chain, Nobu.

Eike Batista’s son, Thor Batista, was driving his sports car in a Rio de Janeiro suburb when he hit and killed a cyclist. Brazilian Justice has recently revoked the injunction that suspended his driver’s license and invalidated the report produced by experts affirming Thor was speeding up to 135 km/h, over 80 mph, at the time his Mercedes-BenzSLR McLaren hit Wanderson Pereira dos Santos SSLTY +0%.

By the way, Eike Batista, who was married to a carnival queen, is the year’s biggest loser. Batista lost, on average, over $53 million every single day since our last 2012 list.

Amador’s story resembles a Brazilian soap opera. Amador, third of 13 children, founded Brazil’s largest bank and adopted three daughters. His death in 1991 sparked more than a decade of ugly court fights between his adopted daughters and his second wife, whom he married less than five months before his death. Amador’s widow, 40 years his junior, reportedly demanded her husband’s body be exhumed for a DNA test years after his death to prove paternity and disqualify his three adopted daughters. However, Brazil’s 1988 Constitution did not leave trail of distinction between biological and adoptive children and two of his adopted children, Lina and Lia Aguiar became billionaires. Maria Angela, the third adopted child, is not a billionaire because she received a smaller number of shares of Bradesco Bank.

Vincent Bollore, from one of France’s most renowned business families reportedly, owns over 1,000 comic books. With a net worth of $ 4 billion, Bollore hosted close friend, former French President Sarkozy, on his yacht for a post-election holiday off Malta in 2007.

There are 29 billionaires who are under 40. The youngest billionaire is Dustin Moskovitz, Mark Zuckerberg‘s former roommate, who pitches his own tent at Burning Man and no longer works at Facebook, the social networking giant that he co-founded.

While marrying a dead person or handling salmon suspiciously might sound morbid or hilarious, these laws have historical context.
Some of today’s laws might seem as antiquated as these in 100 years, too.
In England and Scotland, it is illegal to handle a salmon in suspicious circumstances

The Salmon Act of 1986 has to do with the regulation of salmon fishing, as the waters off of the east and north-east coasts of England and Scotland are famous for their boundless number of the fish. There’s 43 paragraphs in the law, but people certainly seem to be drawn to the 32rd section, which states that “it is illegal to handle a salmon in suspicious circumstances.” You can read it here.

While the line out of context sounds like it could easily be a new-wave album title — or, perhaps something out of a Monty Python sketch — it ostensibly has to do with illegal fishing, i.e., don’t go rogue and try and start a salmon fishing operation in British or Scottish waters without consulting the government first.

In England, it is illegal to be drunk and in charge of a horse

Though the law is widely cited as not being allowed to be in charge of a cow, the law is actually on the books to include several other, uh, modes of transport. According to British law, “Under the Licensing Act 1872, it is an offense to be drunk in charge of a carriage, horse, cow or steam engine, or whilst in possession of a loaded firearm.” Ostensibly, this was a law is to make drunk driving illegal before cars were invented.

It is illegal to enter a taxi if you have the plague

If the zombie apocalypse ever actually happens, there’s a good chance none of them will be taking a taxi. . . thanks in large part to the Public Health (Control of Disease) Act of 1984. The law is actually somewhat more specific in regard to the transport of sick passengers: you have to tell the driver you’re ill, and then it’s up to them to let you in. Then the taxi driver must tell the authorities, who in turn will disinfect the taxi. Bus drivers are forbidden from taking anyone with a “notifiable” disease, which includes the plague.

In France, if you advertise a product that exceeds a certain amount of sugar, you have to include that you should eat 5 fruits or vegetables a day, too

This stems from a 1976 law stating, amongst other things, that advertisers must include certain messages within advertisements. It was updated in 2006 to include more snappy and healthy lines, as well as a web address. A quick google translate of the law finds a few of the lines that must be included: “Learn about your child not to snack between meals,” and “Move, play is essential to the development of your child,” and “In addition to milk, water is the only essential drink”. How refreshing!

In France, it is legal to marry a dead person

Marrying a dead person is legal in France… but there has to be sufficient evidence that you were planning to marry before they died. After a tragic dam burst in 1959 dam, one widow wrote to then-President Charles de Gaulle to ask if it were possible to still marry her (now dead) husband. Touched by the letter, he wrote it into law. You can read the law here.

In Finland, you cannot play music in a cab.

Apparently your driver can’t play music in a Finnish taxi. According to a 2002 law, playing music in a taxi is designated as a “public performance.” To get around this, Finnish taxi drivers must pay about 14 euros a year to the Finnish Composers Copyright Society. The 14 euros applies for all music, not just Finnish music, meaning you can listen to more than the biggest Finnish song of the last 20 years, Darude’s “Sandstorm”, and Finland’s biggest contribution to music: death metal.

In Denmark, you cannot give your baby a weird name (and in Norway, you can’t name yourself Sonic the Hedgehog if you’re under 18)

The Law on Personal Names states that you have to pick from a list of acceptable names. Don’t worry — as of 2016 there’s about 18,000 women’s names and 15,000 men’s names. There’s also a special counsel that you can write to if you want to add a name from your home country. If you don’t like your last name, you can even change it to one of 2,000 “free” last names.

There’s a great story out of Norway I found while researching the above: in April, 2009, a 6 year-old boy asked his parents to send King Harald a letter, asking him if he could legally change his name to “Sonic X.” The parents didn’t send the letter until the boy insisted, and they unexpectedly received a reply from the king saying that, since the boy wasn’t 18, he couldn’t legally change his name to Sonic.

You can’t hike naked in Switzerland.

Bad news if you want to go berry-picking in the buff. In 2011, a Swiss court deemed it so that it would be made illegal to hike naked. The case was brought forth after a German man strode gallantly past a family picnicking in the town of Appenzell, near the Swiss Alps. Oddly enough, naked hiking had become increasingly popular in the years before the court ruling. The New York Times ran a whole article on it in 2009.

If the sea freezes between Sweden and Denmark, a Dane can legally hit a Swedish person with a stick if they walk to Denmark over the ice.

This is an ancient law that dates back to 1658, when Denmark and the Swedes were at war with each-other for 2 years and Swedes continuously marched across the belts of ice between the two countries. Nobody has cared to remove it since then, so the provision still stands.

Prostitutes in Catalonia, Spain, have to wear safety vests.

LLEIDA, SPAIN – OCTOBER 28: Three prostitutes wear reflective vests as they walk along a road on October 28, 2010 near Els Alamus in Lleida, Spain. Photo credit: David Ramos/Getty Images

A 2010 law made it so that prostitutes in Catalonia had to wear reflective safety vests. Not because of the job, but to make them more visible to traffic. There had allegedly been several accidents involving the prostitutes, who gather near the roadways. Although your correspondent’s Spanish is hazy — at best — research into exact incidents is turning up nada.

Amazon’s business unit that primarily consists of advertising revenue registered another booming quarter this summer, growing to nearly $2.5 billion in sales during the three-month period, as Amazon announced yesterday in its third-quarter results. The ad division’s fat profit margin — analysts estimate it could be as large as 75 percent — is a big reason why Amazon posted its largest quarterly profit ever in the third quarter.

Time, we woke up! 

What’s app message from a great friend

Last night I dreamt I was in Macys looking to buy a pair of socks.

As I walked in I noticed a sweater with a price tag of $3000 .Next to the sweater were a pair of Jeans for $4000 .The socks were $8000 ! 


I went looking for a salesperson and found one in the jewelry Dept


 . she was showing a man a $11 Rolex watch .I looked in the glass case and there was a 4 carat diamond ring for $7 .


Shocked I asked the salesperson “How could a Rolex watch sell for $7? ,and a cheap pair of socks sell for $8000”? 


She said “someone snuck into the store last night and changed the price tag on everything “.


“Everyone is confused ,people are acting like they have lost their sense of value””They are willing to pay lots of $ for things of little value ,and very little $ for things of great value “


“Its like they dont know what is really valuable and whats not ” I hope we get the price tags back on right soon ,I hate seeing people pay way too much for things of little value “


I woke up startled 


Maybe life is like my dream.


Maybe someone snuck into our lives and the changed the price on everything


 Maybe  they marked up the value of fame ,and money and power


 And put a huge discount on the value of Love , Kindness , Family , Friends Maybe We are all living this dream 


I hope we wake up

Slavoj Žižek: Hillary Clinton is the problem

Slavoj Žižek and British political writer Owen Jones recently spoke about American politics, the left and global capitalism.
Žižek sees the success of President Donald Trump as proof that the left needs a major overhaul.
Žižek said one positive aspect of Trump’s presidency could be the rise of a new movement on the left.
The crucial battle in American politics today is what’s happening within the Democratic Party, not what’s happening against President Donald Trump, according to the philosopher and cultural critic Slavoj Žižek.

Žižek recently sat down with political commentator Owen Jones for an interview that covered the changing nature of global capitalism, the successes and failures of modern leftist movements, and the best ways to change existing political structures.

Žižek, a frequent critic of both capitalism and the shortcomings of the modern left, said liberals focus too much on social issues, such as LGBT rights and racism, and on new right-leaning factions. The cost? The majority of working-class voters may not hear what’s in it for them.

“The crucial event today is not the rise of the New Right,” he said. “The crucial thing is the disintegration of the central-left welfare consensus. This is why the crucial battle in the U.S. today, it’s not against Trump, it’s what happens within the Democratic Party.”

Divorving after 35 years 😃😃😃

WhatsApp forward story I liked.

Divorce after 35 years !!– Very nice story


An elderly man in Mumbai calls his son in New York and  says …..


‘I hate to ruin your day son, but I have to tell you that your mother and I are getting a divorce; 

35 years of marriage… and that much misery is enough !’


‘Dad, what are you talking about?’ the son screams.


‘We can’t stand the sight of each other any longer,’ the old man says.


‘We’re sick of each other, and I’m sick of talking about this, so you call your sister in Hong Kong and tell her !’


Frantic, the son calls his sister, who explodes on the phone.


‘Like heck they’re getting divorced,’ she shouts, ‘I’ll take care of this.’


She calls Mumbai immediately, and screams at the old man,


 ‘You are not getting divorced. 

Don’t do a single thing until I get there. 

I’m calling my brother back, and we’ll both be there tomorrow. 

Until then , don’t do a thing,  DO YOU HEAR ??’ and she hangs up.


The old man hangs up his phone and turns to his wife. 

‘Okay’, he says,

 ‘It’s all set. 

They’re both coming for our anniversary and paying their own airfare !!’ 😄

Real new Swear Words :) No Real curse words.

swear words, insults and other forms of swearing.

There’s a wide variety to pick from, some swears work best as insults, others as exclamations and others as expressions of disappointment. There’s also a range of styles, some work better in a fantasy setting, others in a futuristic setting.

Sweet onions!
Monkey disco!
Whack a holy moly!
