Hello World! Spam and eggs!

Hello, Hello, Testing,Testing,

1... 2... 3... Check

(Clear throat)

Ladies and ...

Ok, it seems fine now, Lets roll it!)

Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls, I wish to present to you (chest fully
forward) .
(deafening silence)
Aw cut it out, this is too corny.
Hi, I'm Mohan, and I'm splashing right into the Blogosphere! I had wanted to begin this first post of mine on the lines of :
It was a dark and stormy night; the rain fell in torrents, except at occasional intervals, when it was checked by a violent gust of wind which swept up the hostel corridors (for it is in Tapti Hostel that our scene lies), rattling along the rickety clotheslines, and fiercely agitating the scanty flame of the lamps that struggled against the darkness.

and hope of participating in this, but then sort of realized I didn't quite have the time to compete with greats who wrote such pristine prose as :

As he stared at her ample bosom, he daydreamed of the dual Stromberg carburetors in his vintage Triumph Spitfire, highly functional yet pleasingly formed, perched prominently on top of the intake manifold, aching for experienced hands, the small knurled caps of the oil dampeners begging to be inspected and adjusted as described in chapter seven of the shop manual.

Man, this world is full to brim with talent of all kinds ! Anyways, Thanks for coming , and please do keep dropping by!

The World's largest particle accelerator facility, CERN has been conducting top secret research on high energy particle collisions in their LEP electron-positron collider experiments in the underground superconducting magnetron linear particle acclerator and have found a new particle of non-integral non-half-integral spin which exists only at velocities of the order of 1-(1e-60) times c. The mean life time is estimated to be of the order of a few milliseconds. Since the inspiration for this research was Dr. Tim Berners-Lee, they have named it aptly as the Blogon.
A very fine specimen of this particle has made itself physically possible and interstingly, does not decay into elementary particels, and is also known for a property which required a new quantum number called humour(the strangest after the strangeness quantum number) and it seems to tend to infinty here. So much so, that I had to thank god the page title was not a hyperlink to This page.

Keep blogging(and that statement was tnr so I had to jkiitm :D)

Man! Don't tell me you're a Monty Python freak too... But they did contribute to bringing spam into the netizen's dictionaries. Keep blogging!

Mohan K.V said...

That I am, Raytracer sir :) They also contributed to half the lingo in Python, one of my favorite languages.Btw, in Python, the first program taught will not be to print 'Hello World', it'll mostly be to print 'Spam and Eggs' :)
