Happy New Semester!

Spring Semester of this year 2010 starts tomorrow here at Stony Brook. I am registered for Advanced QFT (once more!) and the usual seminar courses! That’s enough about Physics on this blog!

Now, spacetime for some of the tidbits I’ve been thinking about in the past few weeks for this post:

Oxymorons (in no particular order!):

Noise of the Silence!

Listen to the Silence!

Thunderous Silence!

Deafening Silence! (Quite common!)

Lightning Darkness!

Darkening Light!

Light Burden!

4Kgs of Nothing!

Bladeless Knives (with no Handles)! –A joke about Nothing

Caste No Bar! Colour No Spells! –Matrimonial Ads

Obfuscating Truth!

Truthful Lie!

Turn Left, right? –Me at cross-roads!

Rise of the Fallen! –Transformers: ROTF

Descendants have Evolved!

Gauge Fixing Breaks Gauge Invariance! –W. C. Gall

Unbearable Beauty! (like Naked Beauty & Bare Bottom!)

Pretty Ugly! –A joke

Unthinkable Thoughts!

Unmentionable Mentions!

Dry Rain! (If there can be dry ice…)

Wet Flame! (Why not?)

Blue as Black!

White as Black!

Grey as Black/White! (I’ve no idea what I’m writing?)

Rainbow, Hail-arrow! (Rainbow Warrior!)

Wise Fool!

Dumb Genius!

Bounded Gods!

Death of an Endless! –The Sandman by Neil Gaiman

Pure Evil!

Startling Serenity!

Troubling Tranquility!

Unnerving Nerves!

Fading Weather-proof Paint!

उम्र के चढ़ाव का उतार / Umra ke Chadhaav ka Utaar (Fall of Rising Age!) –Gopaldas ‘Neeraj’ in his well-known poem: ‘कारवाँ गुजर गया / Kaarwaan Gujar Gaya (Caravan has passed)’

Some oxymorons from Sketchbook:

Angry Sora? Really…

Silent Natsumi? Hey, You!!!

Spendthrift Hazuki? 70 or 10???

Composed Kate? WOW!!!

Boring Asaka? KamiyaGON!!!

Normal Kokage? Sloths aren’t Lazy???

Dumb Nagisa? Biotope Caretaker!!!

Wakeful Juju? Oh! I slept…

Serious/Grave Ryou/Fuu? Don’t tell them!!!

Sincere Suzukaze Combo? HAHAHA!!! :)

Calm Daichi? Why YOU???

Absconding Ujou? Keep quiet!!!

Omnipresent Tsukio? Who again???

Mature Kasugano-Sensei? Trick or Treat???

Childish Asakura-Sensei? Grow up!!!

Ignorant Ao? Are you okay???

Fearless Pii-chan! EeeAahh…..Kyaaaa!!!

It is sad that no one is going to appreciate the above compilation! Anyway, this is enough writing for today for almost no (⇒0) readers out there! So finally,

Caravan has passed!

First Week of 2010

As is usually said, pictures speak louder than words. So, look at the video below:

Demo of Sudoku Solver 6.5’s Speech Recognition Capabilities

There is some problem with audio after 2-3 numbers are filled in: it speeds up wrt the video! But you get the idea, don't you?

Anyway, I'm not writing any more. I'll just leave you with the following end-of-the-post-link: (unlike last year, there won't be a one-post-per-year condition this year!)

Happy New Year 2010

Here's the first post of the year 2010 which is basically to wish you – one of the very few readers of my blog –

A Very Happy New Year! Enjoy the new days, weeks, months and the year that is 2010!

Do the following: Replace ‘0’ in 2010 with the sum of neighboring numbers: 2010 –> 2311; Now, separate the 4 numbers into two pairs: 2311 –> 23 & 11; Realize that: 11 = II in Roman which means this is the Second instance of me getting:

The Number 23
