1 in every 5 divorces by Facebook

Now… Why am I not surprised?????

Bangalore: Social networking site Facebook, which connects old friends and allows users to make new ones online, is being blamed for an
increasing number of marital breakdowns, reports the Telegraph.

Divorce lawyers claim that the explosion in the popularity of websites such as Facebook and Bebo is tempting to people to cheat on their partners. One law firm, which specializes in divorce, claimed almost one in five petitions they processed cited Facebook.

Suspicious spouses have also used the websites to find evidence of flirting and even affairs which have led to divorce. Mark Keenan, Managing Director of Divorce-Online said, “I had heard from my staff that there were a lot of people saying they had found out things about their partners on Facebook and I decided to see how prevalent it was I was really surprised to see 20 percent of all the petitions containing references to Facebook. The most common reason seemed to be people having inappropriate sexual chats with people they were not supposed to.”

Flirty emails and messages found on Facebook pages are increasingly being cited as evidence of unreasonable behaviour. In fact, computer firms have even cashed in by developing software allowing suspicious spouses to electronically spy on someone’s online activities.

One 35-year-old woman even discovered her husband was divorcing her via Facebook. Conference organiser Emma Brady was distraught to read that her marriage was over when he updated his status on the site to read: “Neil Brady has ended his marriage to Emma Brady.”

Around 14 million Britons are believed to regularly use social networking sites to communicate with old friends or make new ones. The popularity of the Friends Reunited website several years ago was also blamed for a surge in divorces as bored husbands and wives used it to contact old flames and first loves.

It’s a disgusting habit! Please STOP IT!

I have been debating with myself on whether to blog about this or not for the last *few* months! It’s about Guys spitting into the urinal before doing their business. I have seen many people do this and it’s the slop noise of the falling spit is GROSS that I have walked out of the restroom without attending to my business and waited outside till the whole freaking place is empty!

Mind you… I am not talking about some 3rd world slaughterhouse or pub. I am talking about a MNC with guys holding masters and doctorates from all over the world. Not just at my workplace, I have seen this happening in many hotels as well. This post is a aimed at saying a few words at those who have this disgusting habit!

I used to think that its an ‘Asian thing’ and then I just googled it before writing this post and I find that it’s a global phenomenon. There are questions on this even in Yahoo! answers! If you read this post and you are in the habit of doing this. Please try and stop it. It’s very very disgusting for some people when they ‘hear’ you do that.

Infosys techie arrested for raising bomb scare

This guy should be fired from Infy and blacklisted from flying (any arlines) for the next 2 years. This is the primary problem with Indian youth. They don’t think of anybody else other than themselves. One can clearly see this attitude on the roads when two-wheeler drivers try to squeeze through a traffic jam making it worse while the four wheeler drivers sit in their vehicles like idiots waiting for the traffic to clear up.

Such attitudes need to be fixed at primary education level. Unless we change our education to teach our children to become better people instead of self-centered intellectual bastards/bitches, we will have more such incidents in future. There is not going to be an end to this.

What’s the point of being educated if you are so selfish that you would create a bomb-scare for the sake to delaying a flight to your convenience? What about the tension that all the other passengers and crew went through within that short period of time?

New Delhi: A 25-year old engineer from Infosys, who thought that he would miss his Bangalore-bound GoAir flight because his train was running late, landed behind bars on Sunday for causing a bomb scare at the Delhi airport.

Abhishek Gupta was coming from Lucknow in Gorakhnath Express and was expected to reach Delhi railway station by 6 a.m. and catch a Bangalore-bound GoAir flight from the capital’s domestic airport around 8.45 a.m. Gupta’s train got delayed and he reached airport around 9.30 a.m. “He called up the call centre of GoAir informing them that he was late because of train delays and asked the staff to reschedule his journey and put him on the second flight to Bangalore. But his request was refused by the GoAir staff,” said a police officer.

“Gupta who desperately wanted to reach Bangalore, again called up at their call centre telling the staff that there was some suspicious object on the plane. He thought that by doing this, the flight would get delayed for some time, and in the mean time, he would reach the airport and board the same flight,” added the police officer.

After the call, the GoAir flight G8201 carrying 164 passengers was grounded and passengers asked to disembark. The bomb and dog disposal squads were pressed into service but nothing was found on the aircraft.

At 9:30 am, Gupta reached the airport and asked for the boarding pass. “It aroused some suspicion. Gupta was then cornered and questioned. He then confessed to causing the panic,” said the police officer.

A case has been registered against him under appropriate sections of the Indian penal code and he has been arrested.
