The Day Ariq Returned On The Road

In Cerebral Palsy, Family on December 29, 2008 at 4:57 pm

The first day of my annual New-Year-Day-Off has been meaningful for me since it marked the return of Ariq, our first son on the street after a week full of  skipping his daily walk therapy.

Often times the cars just appear as they are, without any major modifications although some of them are really built specially for the films.

It’s a scientific fact that even the worst films can be improved  if there is a cool car in it. We do remember some films, from time to time, because of their car-chase sequences as in most action films always feature. We also relate particular film heroes with their cars as simply identical.

Here are some cool cars ever appeared in some of my favorite movies:

6 Drinks That Change The World

In Health, History, Trivias, Unique, World History on December 16, 2008 at 12:05 pm

Tom Standage urges drinkers to savor the history of their favorite beverages along with the taste. The author of A History of the World in 6 Glasses (Walker & Company, June 2005), Standage lauds the libations that have helped shape our world from the Stone Age to the present day.

“The important drinks are still drinks that we enjoy today,” said Standage, a technology editor at the London-based magazine the Economist. “They are relics of different historical periods still found in our kitchens.”

Take the six-pack, whose contents first fizzed at the dawn of civilization.
