The Zombie Block

So, I seemed to have entered some sort of writer’s block. Some sort of writer’s block I say because it is not entirely the lack of creative ideas which is turning out to be a problem. The real problem lies in my sheer and utter lack of will power to do more physical activity than shifting my laptop from one position to another so that my neck does cramp while I lie on my bed and browse through the internet.

I think the internet has had this effect on most of us. The zombie apocalypse which everyone has been preparing for is somewhat misread. It is the internet which is causing us to turn into this lethargic beast which aimlessly wanders the boundless paths of the world wide web much like the zombies which we have imagined to be aimlessly wandering the boundless paths of the world. Also, much unlike the zombie equivalents we do occasionally search for some matter which could help us sustain our half dead – half alive state.

Think about it, if zombies could talk and after hours of wandering around on the street you happen to catch one and ask, ‘what were you doing?’, what would the response be?

My guess is it would say, ‘nothing,’ same as what your response would be after aimlessly browsing through the web trying to make sense of your living.

The True Apocalypse

I can make many more comparisons as to how the human race is wrongly equipping itself to fight zombies. Guns and ammunition aren’t going to help if all of us just stick to browsing through internet. So, get your ass up and get motivated to deal with your life while I do the same and remember that we can’t give in…

…er, I will continue with this later, I just saw a post on my phone about 12 facts about kitten that will blow my mind. I really have to see it!


Schrodinger’s Cat

Watching ‘The Big Bang Theory’ for the umpteenth time, I happened to reach the end of season 1 where Sheldon is explaining the Schrodinger’s cat theory to Penny. And I looked at it and thought that was a really nice way to approach relationships.

We don’t know if the cat is dead or alive in the Schrodinger’s cat experiment until we open the box, similarly relationships which have not yet started are both dead and alive at the same time. You will have to observe it to find out which state they are in by, possibly, going out on dates.

The theory is not that complicated on the surface and is a great parallel as to how relationships should work. Anyway, so I knew this girl who I quite liked and was not really sure if I should ask out and I am guessing she felt the same way about going out with me, so I went about explaining this theory to her so that she could see the perspective I was aiming for.

I explained the theory for about 15 minutes because she had never heard of it, at all times drawing parallels to the dating concept, for her to understand exactly what I was getting at.

After all the explaining was over, a few moments of silence ensued during which I was not sure what to do except probably rethink everything I had said and wonder if I could have put it in a better way.

‘So you are telling me that the cat could be either dead or alive in the box?’ she asked.

‘Yes,’ I nodded vigorously thankful that she had probably understood everything I told her.

‘That’s a very mean thing to do to a cat,’ she furiously stated. ‘Why would you want to keep it in a box with radioactive substance and not even find out if it is alive? That is simply pathetic!’

I looked at her face for some time, confused as I was, hoping to see a hint of sarcasm on it.

After I concluded that she was quite serious about her complain, I realized that the box had been opened.
