Racist Brampton Girl Video

If anyone hasn't watched it yet (I bet everyone in Brampton and nearby probably heard about it by now!), here it is:

An ignorant, foolish girl complained that there are too many brown people in Brampton. She wishes to move back to Toronto, away from the brown people and the "curry" smell.  She adds that all brown people need to go back to their own country.

When I first saw this video, I felt disgusted and even laughed when she openly gave out her twitter and facebook id, spelling her name. W-T-H!? The level of stupidity boggles my mind. How can she not expect the public outrage? Has she never heard of online bullying? But now, more than anything, I just feel sorry for this girl. Apparently, her father apologized to the public about her behavior and the girl has received some death threats (sigh, what do you expect!? Note to kids: THINK before posting incriminating or stupid content online because anyone can see it). She even had to go to school with a police escort by her side!

There were a LOT of video responses mocking her but the one that truly stands out for me is this one below:

 Best way to address racism or discrimination? Rather than insult them, educate them instead. Long live humanity!!

Remodeling the blog


Today is Friday the 13th, my lucky day :) After being infinitely lazy, I figured I'll renovate my blog and make some major changes to the layout and the content (instead of studying for my exam right now- A sneaky new way to procrastinate). I don't want to just share interesting content through my blog anymore. I want to create it! Even if my blog might not reach a wider audience this way, I know I'll be happier if I stick to what I truly love- short stories.What's more important than doing what you love?

But I'll also share interesting things when I feel that urge to share rather than create (possibly due to laziness). One more change: I'll be blogging once a week- this is going to be my goal! No more, no less.

Thanks to all those new and old loyal followers and comments- they inspired me to get back to blogging.

Happy Friday!

Here's a hilarious stand-up comedy bit on vitamin water I just had to share:

And if you thought YOU were bad at spelling bee's...

Tagged! (I'm exhausted after finishing this)

This thing is EVERYWHERE, isn't it? It's spreading like a deadly virus! Anyway, Aysh from Meow Meow tagged me. Yes, I'm speading the deadly virus :)

The rules: (Which I'm sure everyone knows by now!)

Rule#1: Put the rules on your blog.

Rule#2: Every person tagged should tell 11 things about themselves, answer the 11 questions asked by the one that tagged you, tag 11 other people and ask them 11 different questions.

Rule#3: Let the people whom you tagged know you've done so.

Rule#4: Don't tag anyone who's been tagged before.

Rule#5: Really do tag 11 others, don't go all ''if you want to take this tag''
11 Random things about myself:

1) I looove classic black and white horror movies and thrillers like Pyscho. I'd rather watch something psychological and terrifying than gory movies.

2) I've decided that the first thing to do after I'm married is to travel the whole world! No going back on this whatsoever.

3) I love Spongebob! <3 I still watch cartoons from time to time.

4) I'm not fond of people who don't have manners (Saying please, thank you and excuse me never hurt anyone). I have a habit of instantly saying sorry even though it's not my fault.

5) I dreamed of being an all star athelete, whatever the sport. This is why I always join sports teams eventhough I'm not great at any sport. Hell, I even tried out for sports I never even played before (Yay for field hockey and lacrosse!).

6) I have a billion nicknames which I won't be mentioning here.

7) I'm more fluent in my second language (English) than my native language, Telugu which is a south indian language.

8) I love Leonardo Dicaprio. He's brilliant. I think his best role is in Blood Diamond. Damn, I love all his movies! Did I mention how amazing he is?

The best looking man on the planet :) Yes, I had to include a picture.
9) Number 6 and 3 are my lucky numbers. I choose these numbers for anything, like microwaving leftovers for exactly 63 seconds. Weird, I know.

10) I'm a virgo!

11) My favorite chocolate bar is a milkybar, which is a pure white chocolate candy bar but I do eat any kind of chocolate offered to me :)

11 Questions I answered:

If you could change one thing about yourself physically, what would you change?

I'd change my height. I'm like 5'10 and I wish to be a couple of inches shorter.

If you had to choose one song to listen to everyday for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Tough question since I get sick of songs easily. I think 'Drops of Jupiter'.

If a wizard randomly appeared, and offered you the gift of immortality, would you take it and why?

Hell no! This would mean I'd outlive all my loved ones and friends. I'm not good at dealing with deaths, it tears me apart.

If you could be one character from a book/comic/movie, who would you be?

I want to be Blair from Gossip girl. She's gorgeous. Not to mention young, powerful and wealthy!

Red lorry or Yellow lorry?


What's your favourite type of food (curry, chinese, italian etc.) 

I love indian food and hakka chinese. Anything really spicy and flavorful actually!

Are some people born evil, or is it a learnt behaviour?

I think it's a learnt behavior but maybe some are more prone to evil than others.

Who is your hero? Why?

Sachin Tendulkar, a cricket player. He's just so inspirational and hard working.

What was your favourite subject in school?

Gym class! I loved playing dodgeball.

Do you think animals have consciousness like we humans do? Do they have a sense of selfhood, and are they aware of their feelings and experiences?

Yes, I think so but maybe not all animals. I think they are aware of feelings and experiences. How else can animals like dogs, cats and even domestic animals like cows, sheep and goats be so loyal and loving, right?

 Do you believe in Aliens?

No, not yet.

My 11 questions:

1) What's your favorite place?

2) If you had to marry a celebrity, who would it be?

3) Do you want a twin?

4) How long is your oldest friendship?

5) What's your greatest achievement?

6) If you could only talk to one person for the rest of your life, who would it be?

7) Socks and sandles- yes or no?

8) Choose your power: Mind reading or invisibility?

9) What's your method of transportation?

10) Favorite book?

11) Facebook, twitter or neither? Why?

Happy Tuesday!

What? It'sValentine's day? I had no idea, especially with everyone prancing around with red roses in my university but for me, it's just a regular tuesday more or less. Anyway, Happy Valentine's Day, everyone! For those who hate Valentine's day for any reason, Happy Tuesday!! <3 Happy anything, really. Just be happy!

Check out Google's super adorable animation today for Valentine's day! It's so sweet, I loved it.

Here's something awesome I came across today which I personally experienced myself (All three scenarios!)
Note: I don't take any credit for these cartoons!

Could this really be the return of the woolly mammoth?

The Sun recently revealed a "jaw-dropping" live footage of what people claim as a live woolly mammoth! The video, taken last summer in Siberia, became somewhat of a viral phenonmenon striking lots of interest online. Firstly, this is news from The Sun and everyone knows 'The Sun' isn't exactly considered as a legit source. Secondly, the video is so hazy and blurry, it might as well be a dirty elephant that rolled around in mud..or anything!

Watch it for yourself and let me know what you think.

Thankfully, most people aren't gullible enough to fall for this. Here are the two theories that emerged from online discussions:

1) It's fake, the 'woolly mammoth' was digitally manipulated and the video is intentionally blurry.
2) It's a real video but it's just a wild grizzly bear with a fish in its mouth.

Which theory do you believe?  Do you have your own ideas on what this creature is?

For those who are interested in this topic, check out this interesting article here on whether science is capable of cloning a woolly mammoth or click here to learn about this fasinating creature. Both are great reads!
