“Aim for the stars. If you miss, You’ll land on moon.”

I bet the guy who said this, Must be bad at physics. I mean, What the heck I am going to do on Moon? Anyways, I am not an inspirational speaker or a spiritual guru. But I can always copy. That’s what I did.
These days, It’s very easy to find inspiration. You have zillions of social media websites and apps which are have turned into garbage bins for quotes. Go to your app menu and open Whatsapp. Then check out the contacts list where you are able to view the status of all the contacts. See? You don’t need to read Socrates. You have more than one in your contacts list.
When you drink one pint, You are fine.
Two pints, You start enjoying the beer.
Six pints, You feel dizzy.
Twelve pints and you start giving back to nature.

The same thing is about those quotes. I simply cannot handle the sheer large number of quotes served to me. I feel like vomiting. At that very moment, I wish that person is in front of me who churns out this many quote. I’ll throw up on him and say, “These are the quotes I wasn’t able to digest. Please keep them with you.”
That contact list also displays the hypocrites in your contacts. Not all of them, But it has most of them. When you know a person and that person puts up a copied quote from all the garbage, You compare the behavior of the person with that quote. Most of them, They act completely opposite to the quote. Then whats the point of putting the quote as your status? What skills you are showing off? What I can deduce from it is complete lack of creativity.

So please.. Please stop putting up this quotes everywhere and every now and then. Once in a while it sounds good. But more than that is bad for digestion. You can post nonsense instead. That will at least help someone smile.

Bored of Facebook? Nahh….

I recently joined Facebook. It is supposed to be one of the best and high rated social networking website but I didn’t join for no reason. I did this to help Facebook to regain it’s value which is dipping as per market analysis. :angel: After joining Facebook, I sent all of the friends on Facebook request for friendship. That script peeked into my Gmail contacts to find friends. I didn’t like that. Anyways, I joined and no friends so what to do??

While exploring the Facebook I found Facebook applications. I could install applications and use them.  I could install games  and play them. These are called social games. So I started searching for Facebook games as I was bored on Facebook. While searching I found this game called Metropolis. This game is strategy game and I love strategy games. So this gathered some interest.

The game is very simple. I am mayor of a city and I have to build the city from scratch. I cannot become a mayor in real but at least virtually. 😀 You get to buy empty plots for certain amount and then you develop those plots. You get revenue and you have to pay taxes. Taxes don’t leave your back in virtual world also. Good thing is that you decide and set the taxes. Don’t set them too low in order to keep citizens happy.

You can raise the cultures as you want. You get beautiful landmarks as rewards. You decide the type of city you’ll build. Whether it’ll be wealthy or rich in culture. You can play on your own or combine play with other Facebook users. Easy to use interface, Simple way to display stats will make you  addicted to the game. If at all I become a mayor in future I will have thank to this game for teaching me how to become one.

You can check more of kramaley games, the maker of this game, for more Facebook games. Now  no reason to get bored.
