According to the links you gave:

Dumb and Dumber

Here comes the hotstepper

I haven't even heard of the song or the movie lol. Now I will give them a watch/listen.

Dark room. How dark though to get the effect?

Do you like reading Pando(a lot of your posts have origins there)? What sort of journalism is it exactly (from your perspective) and why do you find it exciting? What can one learn from it and why would one invest in it?

Oh boy those are a lot of questions, I am sorry about that.. I am just interested in your reading habits.

Try pickling green mangoes, they come out great!

    I don't know if those are the three most recent

Which browser do you use? I think the latest bookmarks usually settle at the bottom. But any three would do.

Looks like you are very much into geography! Super interesting!

    drawn to chess partly because smart people are supposed to play chess

Interesting to note. Does this stem from a belief to be a part of the "smart" community. I very many times have insecurities of being smart or not so I bury myself in topics (like pop psychology) to get the social gratification of being "smart". It's just that I want to be more like the people I consider "smart".

I am not saying that the above applies to you, i am just curious whether the thinking is similar as to why we get attracted to "smart" communities and our desires to be in them. (Hey, STEM circle-jerks are fun)

What other topics do you consider to be "smart" topics? For me neuroscience and programming comes into mind.

    you'd come across as a "salesman" and we don't want that, do we?!

Does "Salesman" have a negative connotation here in America? If so why?

Isn't it a reputable profession? Just curious :)

I live in Bangalore which is in south of India.

India is EXTREMELY diverse! Every 100km radius you have a different culture, different food and sometimes even a different dressing style. It is a very ancient civilisation. Hinduism, one of the major philosophies in India, dates BC's back.

Thus it has had years and years of change and diversity has settled in just like diversity in a rainforest with time and age.
