WHO was the STUDENT ????

Kini sent this in the mail and I didnt want to lose it. So putting it on my blog.
WHO was the STUDENT ????
This was a question in a physics degree exam at the University of Copenhagen: "Describe how to determine the height of a skyscraper with a barometer."
One student replied: "You tie a long piece of string to the neck of the barometer, then lower the barometer from the roof of the skyscraper to the ground. The length of the string plus the length of the barometer will equal the height of the building."
This highly original answer so incensed the examiner that the student was failed immediately. The student appealed on the grounds that his answer was indisputably correct, and the university appointed an independent arbiter to decide the case.
The arbiter judged that the answer was indeed correct, but did not display any noticeable knowledge of physics.
To resolve the problem, it was decided to call the student in and allow him six minutes in which to provide a verbal answer that showed at least a minimal familiarity with the basic principles of physics.
For five minutes the student sat in silence, forehead creased in thought.
The arbiter reminded him that time was running out, to which the student replied that he had several extremely relevant answers, but couldn't make up his mind which to use.
On being advised to hurry up the student replied as follows:
"Firstly, you could take the barometer up to the roof of the skyscraper, drop it over the edge and measure the time it takes to reach the ground. The height of the building can then be worked out from the formula H = 0.5g x t squared. But bad luck on the barometer."
"Or if the sun is shining you could measure the height of the barometer, then set it on end and measure the length of its shadow. Then you measure the length of the skyscraper's shadow, and thereafter it is a simple matter of proportional arithmetic to work out the height of the skyscraper."
"But if you wanted to be highly scientific about it, you could tie a short piece of string to the barometer and swing it like a pendulum, first at ground level and then on the roof of the skyscraper. The height is worked out by the difference in the gravitational restoring force T = 2pi sq root (l/g)."
"Or if the skyscraper has an outside emergency staircase, it would be easier to walk up it and mark off the height of the skyscraper in barometer lengths, then add them up."
"If you merely wanted to be boring and orthodox about it, of course, you could use the barometer to measure the air pressure on the roof of the skyscraper and on the ground, and convert the difference in millibars into feet to give the height of the building."
"But since we are constantly being exhorted to exercise independence of mind and apply scientific methods, undoubtedly the best way would be to knock on the janitor's door and say to him, 'If you would like a nice new barometer, I will give you this one if you tell me the height of this skyscraper'."
(The student was " NIEL BOHR ", the only Dane to WIN the NOBEL prize for Physics)

My Friends

I posted a message on the IIT madras friends mailing group and this is what happened. Wanted to share this with everyone. It was genereally to pull Kelkar's leg.
My Mail :
Cops rescue couple from irate mob
March 08, 2005 14:44 IST
The police had to use force to disperse an irate crowd from attacking a couple at Kidwai Road in Malegaon of Maharashtra's Nasik district on Monday night. The people objected to the couple talking as they belonged to different religious communities. According to the police, the crowd attacked the couple and took them to a place of worship. A local cable channel crew was also beaten while trying to shoot the incident. The situation in Malegaon is said to be under control, sources added.

Michael's Reply :
what makes u so sure its ppl of these 2 ethnicities only?
maybe it was a dalit being converted to catholic... thru pre-marital sex!!:)
My Reply:
i want to be a dalit and i want to turn into a catholic.......... and want to turn into a catholic every hour if they offer sex.......
V..........
Kini's Reply:
"Hey nasik is cool man ! Nasik this..nasik that...guys adn girls chill in nasik man ! The pubs there were my fav. Pick-up points...guy and girl on bike with girl in mini or less was normal da...kya baat kar rah hai !"
Now HE is silent !!

Michael's Reply :
ok so we're getting somewhere? Could it be that the staunch Hindu fundamentalists dont like Muslims cause they have more than one wife, n they dont like christianity cause the youth indulge in ahem shall we say frolicking sort of activities early on in their young adulthood?
So, then the prob could be solved....
My Reply:
well whatever........ i want to be a dalit and want to convert into a catholic if they offer sex......... bloody fools surdars dont even know how to motivate people to convert back to pure sikhs with turban and beard...... just say: "FREE SEX to the sikh who grows back his beard and wears turban"

Kelkar's Reply:
Not silent working
To clarify your doubts
1. Nashik does not have a pub or a disc.
2. Malegaon is a village near nasik
3. It will be very very rare to find a girl in mini in nasik unless she is lost in the kumbh mela
4. Nashik is a small town and will be for some more years
5. For that matter you would find the malegaon attitude in any village across the country
6. Yeah, you can sit behind a girl on a vandi and its ok in most of Maharashtra.
7. you can talk to girls and it wont be the case of talwarein chalengi like in Punjab
Adios

Kini fights back because the font in which Kelkar wrote sucked bigtime:
the font from nashik too ??seems like it..it's "sad" too..
ok...kill me..kill me NOW !!
k
Kelkar and his stupid blah blah blah:
Adding to that list malegaon is like bhiwandi. Very volatile. Majority is Islamic. And other thing is the diff religious communities haven’t been identified
K : do you even know where bhiwandi is?
K: Idiot, the font is Arial
Adios
I
Ronnie comes in:
Hey Kel...font used - "courier new"....not Arial...
K-man...how jobless do you have to be.....no TV-aa? Our floor is practically empty...cafeteria is packed!
Kini cools down:
holiday maama...in orange...tv switched off !! shift ka funda hai na..call center...nahi toh junta will say "__" to u..ihave to watch the match when customer calls up !
;-0
k
Kelkar brings in a little racism, but no offenses to anyone:
Today is shivratri and I have to take the shiv sena stand yaar.Down with outsiders. Kick all of them out of Mumbai (especially Kini... send him back to bangalore). Jay Balasaheb thakre
Adios
Indrajeet
Kini's reply:
can he do that ? can he really do that ?? seriously...mumbai walon..mumbai tum hi ko mbaarak..only u can live with those one-inch away from kisses from well-dressed gentlemen experience in the locals on a daily basis !!please speak to him na ..even i will say jai maharashtra..jai balasaheb !!
Kelkar Replies:
Wooah . I did not know you were so desperate to get to banglore, from your description I guess partho would like Mumbai. One fine day he was training dipu about how to paw (sic...) a female in crowded MTC bus.
Adios

Kini's Reply:
and i gave u that info cos Dipu told me !!!during our summers toegether..."udi baba !!mein toh daaang reh gayaaa re !! kolkaaata waalaa aur aise..cheee cheee...chee..."

The fun continues everyday in office and its great to have friends who are pretty jobless in ofice all day.

Sameer Manroy

sameer Posted by Hello
This is Sameer, one of my best pals from Nangal, Punjab. Met him this February again after a looooooong time and it was great to see him. Great singer and good Table Tennis player. With good I don't mean that he is better than me, he is OK OK, I also beat him once or twice.
Ok about his guy; he was in Electronics and Communication in BBSEC and was great company, no boozing when he came to college and now, wow, he drinks like fish.
I also went to his place twice and it was great fun there. He lives in a very very cool place called Nangal and its a small town with lots and lots of trees and a dam. We both also went to trecking kind of thing and saw the Bhakhra Nangal dam. Believe me it was scary at that place. Looking down 100 meters is like PHEW!!! (I went there sometime in 2000)
Used to hang in his room a lot because he always had Shivdev Brar as his great pal, Shivdev got married recently to some girl and was called Babaji PYAR SE. Shivdev was one if the best people I ever met in BBSEC.
Sameer was some 4 th or 5th in Symbiosys entrance exam and did his MBA in marketing I guess, very very good scholar and knows what he wants to do and all that. There is difference between knowing your path and walking the path,(from Matrix whatever) I need to know my path as of yet. Sameer wanted to go to FMCG and now works for Nerolac Paints in Jalandhar. Area Sales Manager like that something. Oye Sameer aish kar puttar. All the best.
Oh by the way his girly is in Austin, US and I might land up there soon. ;-)
Jai Raam Ji Ki....
