The Story Behind Hello

Posted by M ws On 2 comments

When you lift the phone you normally say Hello... Do you know what is the real meaning of Hello? It is the name of a Girl..! Yes it is. Do you know who this girl is? "Margaret Hello" She was the girlfriend of Graham Bell who invented telephone. His first word on his phone after his invention was "Hello". That practice of starting the call with Hello still continues. One can forget the name of Graham Bell but not his girlfriend. That is what he did for his beloved. Perhaps it is no less than the work of Taj Mahal.

An elderly man was having a calm walk when he happens to pass a brothel.

One of the prostitutes calls out: "Hey Grandpa! Why don't you try?

The old man replies: "No, my child, I cannot!"

The prostitute: "Cheer up!!! Let us try!!!"

The elderly man enters and performs like a 25-year old.

The prostitute says:"Oh Gosh! And you still say you cannot."  

The old man replies:  "Aaah, sex I can, what I cannot do is pay!"

Surprising Facts and Benefits of Coffee

Posted by M ws On 0 comments

Some of us just can't make it through a day without our cup of coffee and I can't say it's hard to see why. People call coffee "the fuel of the modern man" as a joke, but it's not really too far form the truth. Take a look at any office during the morning hours and the majority of people will be drinking coffee. While I personally prefer tea, there is still much to be said about the benefits and the facts you never knew about coffee:

Your body doesn’t need coffee when you wake up.

We naturally produce a hormone called cortisol which has a very similar effect to caffeine. This hormone is made at certain times of the day based on our circadian rhythm. It's important to know when is the best time to drink your coffee to enjoy its full maximum efficacy.

Coffee isn’t as dehydrating as people think.

Today’s Opium ...............


People are addicted these days ! One CafĂ© shop sign says : We do not have WIFI. Converse with your loved ones.   

The major cause of divorce in 2018 will be the smartphone. Your friends and family members are so close and yet so far.

The smartphone today is not dissimilar to opium in the last century. It kills off our communication skills, and poisons our hearts and souls.

You don’t have to wonder any more why so many young people don’t read, can’t spell or write decently and are often inarticulate.
