Anger

"The pope said something about Allah
that angered the muslims worldwide.
I have an assignment due tomorrow. "



===========
36 hours later:
===========
In lieu of complaints about the abstractness of the above three liner, I would like to enlighten your eager souls with answers. I was working on an assignment, late last night, when my eyes were burning and my eyelids annoyingly were trying to blanket my eyes and the clock struck 2 am. I went to read some news, to know more about this infinitely interesting world, when all I got to see was what the German Pope said about Allah, and how Iran and the rest of the world were offended. It seem the Pope tried to ease the sitch by apologizing and he said "I am sorry about the way people are reacting to my earlier statements."

I used to play such word games with my sister when I was 3 years old. I think the Pope needs new public relations personnel. You see, the world used to be much more interesting when I was a toddler. I think the world forgot to grow up with me. Even my demanding 6 page assignment seemed to be much more interesting than a planet with news about interaction between mere protein based life forms.

I got complaints that people were not able to understand the above, as though they have understood everything else in their lives :p. I will tell you what it is. It is a three liner, silly. Denying the poemhood is the worst insult that a blog-post can ever get. Making the author (make that "poet") explain the poem when it is clear as crystal, undermines the profoundness of "short and curt" poem. Is the above really hard to understand?

Unbelievable, people!

Hey, if I understood that well, I found it funny. :-)

(ps: Is the site Myers & Briggs? for finding that ENFP thing. I went to their site but could not find a test link; or maybe I 'll try again. I think I was an INTJ 5-6 yrs ago. Also do they charge for the test?)

To tell the truth, this profile is embarrasingly true. Esp. the silly switch :)

@ravi: Even I do not understand, what have I written ?

ENFP?
let me see...hmm
ENFPs are ..... hmmm....hmm yes....switch is flipped. Hm true enough..
Maybe... mmm .....journalism I dont know.... good at ...details could be.
Friends ..... looks right .... mmmm .. alone, on a regular basis. frightening

One ENFP colleague, ... mmm... her own job interviewLOL Ha ha that was a good one
ENFPs....More than one ENFP has abruptly quit a job in such a moment.
take care kid

Yeah looks true enough, but embarassing? Maybe a point of view.

@ Archana - Thanks for making the kid open up and give that link,or else I'd have died w/o knowing about ENFP. :)

Looks like you don't want to get rid of the painful word verification :(

I think it was not nice what the pope said.You should not be judging some one elses religion and saying aweful stuff.

@visitor: what? I explained ENFP before didnt I?

@starry: what aweful stuff ? I am not religiously intolerant or anything like that. Three lines telling everyone that, some people might just not care about silly stuff like that. How is that aweful?

:-) - I just thought that there is something more profound to the poem than what I got at face value :-))! Apparently not :-P! I found it funny though!

@archana: I am happy you found it funny, Mademoiselle. I am not the kind of person who would draw "modern" art with a toothbrush and claim a masterpiece. You get what you see.

I am actually very happy now that you find it really funny for the stuff it actually is and not for a presumed profoundity. :D

I went to that site already ... found myself to be an ENFJ which is kind of not true .. I think I am a cusp and am more of a EN(T/F)(J/P) and more tending to ENTJ. My T/F and J/P personality is pretty 50-50 though.

Anyways, thanks. And remember, you are tagged. And if you avoid the tag, heavens get angry! :-)

Hi Kid - Nice comment you left. I also got to the humanmetrics site and took the Jungian type test. Ended up being labelled as INFP.

I did not understand this. Will see the movie "butterfly effect" and hope it helps.

well the movie butterfly effect is quite confusing...

The "butterfly effect" is actually based on The Chaos Theory.

It goes on something like this...

The flapping of a single butterfly's wing today produces a tiny change in the state of the atmosphere. Over a period of time, what the atmosphere actually does diverges from what it would have done. So, in a month's time, a tornado that would have devastated the Indonesian coast doesn't happen. Or maybe one that wasn't going to happen, does. (Ian Stewart, Does God Play Dice? The Mathematics of Chaos, pg. 141)
