Modern Laws of Nature

Lorenz's Law of Mechanical Repair:
After your hands become coated with grease, your nose will begin to itch.

Anthony's Law of the Workshop:
Any tool, when dropped, will roll to the least accessible corner.

Kovac's Conundrum:
When you dial a wrong number, you never get an engaged one.

Cannon's Karmic Law:
If you tell the boss you were late for work because you had a flat
tire, the next morning you will have a flat tire.

O'brien's Variation Law:
If you change queues, the one you have left will start to move
faster than the one you are in now.

When the body is immersed in water , the telephone rings.

The probability of meeting someone you know increases when you are
with someone you don't want to be seen with.

When you try to prove to someone that a machine won't work, it will.

The severity of the itch is inversely proportional to the reach.

At any event, the people whose seats are furthest from the aisle arrive

As soon as you sit down to a cup of hot coffee, your boss will ask
you to do something which will last until the coffee is cold.

Everyday with You Lord
Is sweeter than the day before

Every morning I will worship
Every evening I'll adore
Cause everyday with You
Is sweeter than the day before

What a privilledge to know you
Like I know You
To be loved

What an honour to worship
Truly worship
From this heart that You have freed

From the rising of the sun
To the setting of the same

Everyday with You Lord

Everyday with You Lord

Every morning I will worship
Every evening I'll adore
Everyday with You is sweeter
Sweeter than the day before

What wonder to live like
Really live like
Overcoming anything
What a reason to lift up
Freely lift up
Everyday my everything

To the setting of the same

Everyday with You Lord
Is sweeter than the day before
Everyday with You Lord
Is sweeter than the day before

Every morning I will worship

Is sweeter than the day before

Everyday, everyday with You Lord
Everyday sweeter than the day before

Habakkuk 3:17-19

Though the fig tree may not blossom
Nor fruit be on the vines
Though the labor of the olive may fail
And the fields yield no food
Though the flock may be cut off from the fold
And there be no herd in the stalls
Yet i will rejoice in the Lord
I will joy in the God of my salvation

The Lord God is my strength
He will make my feet like the deer's feet
And He will make me walk on my high hills

No matter what happens, I choose to praise You.

Financial and Investment Math 03/05/05

First day of Uni exams today. I think in that 3 hour paper i aged at least 3 years. Never have i ever in an exam experience such paralysing fear, yet in that i experienced grace of untold proportions today.

The venue itself was an interesting one, it was held in the basement of and old catholic church(which is still in use today and the church is actually a very nice place) which is called the crypt. So i was on my way there nice and early. Not really feeling anything. There was a feeling of uneasy silence within me though, and i did my best to shake it off by singing some songs to myself on the way.

So in the exam venue itself....felt pretty confident looking through the paper during reading time. Somehow midway through the second question, there was something slightly abnormal about it, and it kinda threw me off course. The 3rd question was my bogey question, and at that time i knew my mind was in a state of panic. I tried my very hardest to refocus and get it back in check but i just couldnt. So bad till i couldnt read values off a table without having to recheck it 15 times. Skipped it and went to question 4, a very much easier question which i would ace on any given day. My mind was blank. I didnt know what to do or how to start. At this point of time i knew i was going to fail the paper if i went on. My mind started imagining coming back early to london during the summer to resit the paper, no scholarship money next term, no exemptions, everything negative that you could think of was bombarding my mind.

I stood up immediately without even asking the invigilators(did i spell that right?), and asked to go to the washroom, knowing that if i went on i would surely fail. That few moments in the washroom was so so crucial and tense. I even told the escorting invigilator "man i'm panicking man.." to which he gave a curt reply of "you need to relax". Yeah easy for you to say cause you're not the one taking it.

But i did come back from the toilet a lot more composed. And i managed to salvage most of the paper, including the 1st few ones which i panicked in. I didnt really get them right, neither was i able to complete a question at the end, but at least now there's a light at the end of the tunnel. Not excellent maybe(considering the fact that out of all my subjects this is the one i had most confidence in), but at least i have a decent chance of retaining my scholarship and getting that exemption.

Looking back, i can actually be bitter about the fact that i panicked and amost failed in the exam. But i guess i wont, apart from the side fact that it would do me no good to feel that way, but more importantly i guess this is a good chance to thank God that i actually escaped from the brink of failure. Never have i before in the middle of an exam began rebuking feelings of panic(which surfaced again after i came back from the toilet) and recalling all those bible verses of God's promises...and man...i really believe that was what saw me through today. The worst might not yet have come, but as Paul said "What shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?" Romans 8:26

i think the best way to sum this day's event up is to echo the words of the hymnwriter

And because He lives
I can face tomorrow
Because He lives
All fear is gone
And because i know, i know
He holds the future
And life is worth the living
Just because He lives.
The next paper will probably be the worst of all. But i will not fear, or neither will i yield.
"Yet in all these things we are more than conquerers through Him who loves us" Romans 8:37

Iraqi police: Abducted CARE official's belongings found

"BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- Iraqi and U.S. forces detained six suspected insurgents Sunday during a raid in a Baghdad suburb and found a handbag, ID and clothing that belonged to kidnapped CARE official Margaret Hassan, Iraqi police said.
Hassan, former director of the humanitarian organization CARE in Iraq, is a British citizen who was taken hostage in October. A video purportedly showing her being shot to death surfaced about a month later on the Arabic-language Al-Jazeera satellite television channel....."
