we'll be back shortly

Arnab has his head in other places right now. Normal transmission will resume soon. Here’s what’s in store for you after the break:

  • Arnab’s new typing device
  • Rants about the flying world in general, and women, specifically
  • California and the utterly desi weather

So hold your breath, and meet you in the next year!

balls to evolution

“Frozen in Time”:

The site of human testicles seems a bizarre anomaly from an evolutionary point of view, like positioning the driver of an armored vehicle in a sack strapped to the bumper. If the whole point of the human organism is to pass on genes, why put the repository of those precious genes out front, in harm’s way? Why not protect them the way the brain and the heart are protected, with thick bone vaults and, in the brain’s case, an elaborate barrier to bloodborne infection?


tired, lost, anxious to end
this misery, this world, this age of pretend

eager, to move on

into the times where the sky is a smile
where my dreams and i can see eye to eye

oh, if life was just a song

but alas, for i have no wings to fly
no legs to stand, no tears to cry

anymore, for i am withered

removed, parched, lusting for hope
seeking madness, methods to cope

removed, without notice

pieced away from the peace that i require
my means put away by my desire

alas, for i forgot

the flame that kept my blood alive,
tormented my will, ignited my strife

someday, i will avenge

till then, let me bask in my pity.

note: no, I didn’t just break up, I don’t have a drug problem, I’m not contemplating suicide, and no one fucked me over. Thanks for asking.
