I apologize for not having posted for nearly a fortnight, but I have a pretty good reason for being MIA. The traffic on the internet highway has become so excruciatingly bad that it caused my trusted Vespa scooter to finally breakdown and die. I traded it in the remains for a more souped-up version of a Pakistani rickshaw (3-wheeled taxi), see above photo. Impressive isn’t it? It is turbo charged to maneuver through the narrow bylanes of cyberspace. I also had an ejector seat installed in it, except in this version (unlike James Bond's Aston Martin), it is the driver seat that ejects. It comes in handy when you are stuck in a proxy jam; you can just expel yourself from that agonizing experience and commit cyber hara-kiri.
This top-of-the-line rickshaw also comes with a built-in precision guided missile system which is rather useful when one wants to obliterate those offensive pop-up ads that crop up on certain web sites and blogs.
On to this week's collection of delightful links that reflect the Pakistani perspective. Suspect Paki highlights a frightening reality experienced by the Palestinian children; Teeth Maestro announces the launch of Desicritics.org; Windmill comments on the Kara(chi)film Festival; Fountainhead pontificates on fascism; Lightwithin praises the mountain Porters of Pakistan; Crow's Nest debates the rational of logic; and finally, I present my random thoughts for the day.
I better get a move on, as I need to pick up my customized licence plates for my rickshaw. Simply says “BLOG THIS!”
