Rain and logic

What an absurd topic! Isn’t it so? May be. But picture this…………
You are walking down the road and out of nowhere the rain god decides to give you a shower and you are a good mile away from your destination. Sounds familiar? So what do you do?
“ You run to the nearest shelter. Isn’t it obvious? You pain in the neck blogger! (Until and unless you are smitten by the love bug)”

“Yeah, that’s right” but wait, is it the most logical thing you do?

“ Well you are asking me to stand in the rain and get drenched and think, if that’s your concept of logic you may shove it up your ass blogger”

“No, but all I am saying is the most obvious thing is also the most logical?” Now if you had the patience to read up till now bear with me a little more and read further.

See all I expect from the readers is to have a basic knowledge of elementary mathematics.
Let us assume that it is raining at uniform speed say “X” mm per second. Which means that any given instant any square metre of surface under rain will receive “X” mm of rain.

Now let us assume the distance from your current position to the shelter is “Y” metres.
So, at any given instance any surface under rain from your current position to the shelter will receive “X*Y*1000” mm of rain. (1m =1000 mm).

Now your height, which in any case would not be higher than 2 metres if taken into account, then the total amount of water at any instance between you and shelter under rain will be “2*X*Y*1000*1000” mm.

Let us call this amount say “Z” (saves my typing time). Thus under rain at any instant the “shelter distance” will hold Z amount of water (considering human height). Hence “shelter distance” in other words behaves like a pool of water under rain.

Now tell me if you have to wade/ swim across a pool does your getting wet depend upon the speed at which you swim? No it doesn’t. It only depends upon the amount of water in the pool.

Then why do we run in rain??? We only risk getting injured by slipping!!! Hence the most obvious thing is not the most logical!

keep it simple!!!

Though I must admit that I do not read blogs frequently, but some of the post that I have a read I find, the authors or the bloggers have the fascination and I might dare to say "obsession " with fancy words. And that’s where the problem lies… what they fail to understand that they are not taking GRE test. The whole point of language is to communicate ur ideas freely; if that fails ur entire work fails!!! After all u (I hope I can safely presume to say u) don’t want to sit with a dictionary to read a blog… and if u really want me to do that I think I’ll better read the editorial of “ The Hindu “ or “The Economic Times”.
The point is most of the time we unnecessarily complicate. And its true for all of us! Whether it is blog or life… why don’t we try to keep things simple??? The things the way they should be… simple and straightforward. There are enough problem in life already, do we have to still complicate it? Why the hell can’t we say “ I love you” and say words like “ I like u”, “I cant seem to get my mind of u”, or “I am attracted to u” or some stupid statements like the one I said “I am obsessed with you” and so on and gals if u r not interested be bold and say sternly but politely “ I am just not interested” why give the poor guy some false hope and illusion. See, it will save u a lot of headache later on and u are going to thank me for that!!!
This was just an example a hundred times in our day we say “no” when we should say ‘yes” and “yes” when we should say “no”. Why do we have to do this? Can’t we gather some courage and speak the truth? Why then do we wonder that how could I be pulled in such a mess?
Because and because u tried to be polite or “tried to be something which u are not” and ended up promising something which u have no intention to keep. Most of the time we have no idea that someone could be traveling 100 miles just because of your words!!! And if that person gets on wax (turns angry) and the relationship (whatsoever it may be professional or personal) turns sours then who is to be blamed?
There are times when we should and could have come out with the truth but chose to hide or lie…..
Now we are working overtime to hide it!!! Come out with it dude: go say and confess!!! Yes it may hamper your progress or be suicidal to your relationship but in the end truth will be known!!!! So u will be back to square one… What will u gain? Extra tension of trying to find a suitable excuse and nothing more!!

So please guys keep it simple. Life will surely be better then ...
