On the drive to work I was listening to a popular radio channel where the RJ was quizzing the listeners about space. You know, Space...The Final Frontier...zzzoooooppp! This was good, I thought. Finally they are talking about something sensible, instead of how to make your boyfriend jealous etc etc. Hope dies soon enough though. Ok Ok! Here are a few answers for you to decide whether Bangalore tops in the number of bozos per square kilometer.
RJ: What is a satellite?
Caller 1: Hmmm…it’s like the cable TV! (Whaaaat the @#%?)
Caller 2: Well….satellites are these space thingies that go round and round I think.
RJ: What is an orbit?
Caller 1: chewing gum!!! (O-M-G!)
Caller 2: Orbits are lines around which planets go round. (Dude??!!!)
RJ: What are asteroids?
Caller 1: They kill people…I don’t know how. (Shit#$$%)
Caller 2: Rocks in space…you know…they are parts of something huge I guess..
People! Wake up! I wanted to scream. But well it’s the radio you know, and no matter how much you scream at it, it just screams back with more giggles from the lady RJ. Before I smashed my radio, thankfully they switched to John Mayer’s Your Body is a Wonderland.
