Anecdote on Perceptions

Five surgeons were taking a coffee break and discussing their work.
The first said,
"I think accountants are the easiest to operate on. You open them up and everything inside is numbered."
The second said,
"I think librarians are the easiest to operate on. You open them up and everything inside is in alphabetical order."
The Third said,
"I like to operate on electricians. You open them up and everything inside is color-coded. "
The fourth one said, "I like to operate on lawyers. They're heartless, spineless, gutless, and their heads and their butts are interchangeable."
Fifth surgeon said,
"I like Engineers... they always understand when you have a few parts left over at the end..."


Above quote is reality at its best. It applies to any system of profession.

I was reading couple of articles in blog world about, how and when one is plagiarized or internalized - in a way can be synonymous. We quoting quotes or parts of a particular post, in good faith, is acceptable! People are copying left and right, all the images, from the net and also some posts of others, concocting in a different form - wither getting published in internet/print media as their own stories. They take the story's central theme, and write in their way. Inspiration!

Nevertheless, even my stories and experiences on this blog have been plagiarized by many including self styled authors here living in the USA probably(!). Many write to me quoting the sources.... If that is the way they can earn few guineas, so be it. God bless them!

I am not going to growl about it, as God knows what to give to each - when and the best!

I am well versed with any subject in the world, including Black Magic.

The topic I am talking about is Astrology and obviously it is a science of myth, and people are writing stories, without even knowing what it is all about, for fun.

Note - I have read Astrology seriously and well versed with Western systems too! I went through certain bloggers so called astrological class, and found it with full of pessimism in approach. Astrology is a science were the tellers are supposed to be sooth sayers, to soften the blows, as told by well known Sadhus, who wrote these theories, Parashara, Jaimini and all.
