My Invented Proverbs - Part V

  • People are too lazy to specialize, hence they generalize. They hence do not work on facts, obtained through specialization, but rather on perceptions, obtained through generalization.
  • Xenophobia is selective Mis-Anthropy.
  • Your popularity is directly proportional to the ratio of your twitter-followers-count to your twitter-followings-count.
  • GOD is a placebo for Human fallibility.
  • 90% of people within any group, resent the fact that they are not 100%
  • History may be written by victors, but Archaelogy is not.
  • I am not an atheist, I am just GOD with retrograde amnesia.
  • I am not on bench, I am suffering from a "Programmers block".
  • There is a whole range of gray shades between pride and shame.
  • If we cannot have consensus on current affairs, why do we expect different people to have a consistent view of history, for today's current affairs are tomorrow's history.

  2. Specialization = I meant going for the detail when judging or making opinions, taking things on per case basis :)

    "90% of people within any group, resent the fact that they are not 10%" ?
