In the depths of my soul I see the gleam
Oh! my mind would dismiss it all a dream!
If the Presence did my sense illumine
Prophets confuse verity for a dream.

If short of breath all you need is to do a handstand. If you could do it, short or length wouldn’t bother you.

Do you suffer from insomnia? If you do, counting sheep may not help help anymore. Think your boss is suffering from the same condition and his is much more aggravated case. It will not help you fall asleep. But you have something more pleasant thought to keep you occupied.
3.
Do you suffer from flatulence? And the sound is flat and ear splitting? Don’t worry. In company you ask as if to no one

If you are with your wife in a posh company say with a smile as natural as can be,’ Oh dear, they are playing our music.’ It is a sure romantic touch coming from you. The shock value is enough to distract all.
*In case a piece of a bone gets stuck in your throat, don’ t panic: get your dog to fetch it. Invariably he does it.

Had the USA done differently these would have happened:
1.

Soviets would not have been able to hold on under the weight of its personality cult and mis-rule; Gorbachev did call for more openeness because he had no other alternative. A catastrophic event like Chernobyl showed the USSR had to update its technology and let in expertise from outside; Its ageing submarines around the Baltic and the North Sea for example and deeply ingrained black market profiteering was a symptom of the weak authority or lack of will in cleaning up administration. Dwindling population already decimated by WWII and under repression were not strong to force changes..
2. Osama bin Laden would have been the founder
of a chain of companies: or directing his own construction company from one of the Saudi office blocks spending his time with with his team setting new goals for branching out into different parts of UAE. Name of the company: Al Quaida Construction Co.,
3. Saddam Hussein would have moved from being one of those street- smart hoodlum into the the service of some ageing Sheik. Or he would have continued in Egypt, sucking upto rich tourists coming in to visit the pyramids.
4. As for Iraq the British interests were already on the wane. America would have had greater role to play in the Middlle East. So many deaths on the sides of Iraq,Iran and of US Marines would have been spared.
This is terrible, I mean to rewrite history. (from my post of April 1,2007 in Journalspace )
