But still i decide to extend my count my blessings spree and go on to count my scientific wondrers everyday:
Alarm clock – It marks my entry into the world every single morning/afternoon. It leads a cursed life and suffers choice abuses from me on a daily basis, but fulfils its duty anyway with unwavering dedication. Applause please.
Pipes – It remains for me the most enigmatic and revered scientific object till date. Enigmatic because I have never hit upon how exactly it works. And revered because it gives us water! However dirty and polluted, but still critical enough to humanize ourselves.
Microwave/Stove – How otherwise are you alive to read this?
Local trains – Enough Said.
Printing press – Has to be the most useful invention after the wheel.
Elevators/Escalators – True, their role in elevating/escalating weight issues is prominent, but then conditions to comfort do apply.
Computers – Makes me feel humanoid. Liberates me, sets me free. Sub wonder: Internet – Sometimes I’m confused about whether there is Internet in this world or the world in the Internet.
Mobile phones – Though it has reduced my landline connection to a whining grandparent figure, mobile phones are now like public urinals when you badly want to pee. A Relief. And also a delight. But not using the public toilets example. Hail.
Tissue paper – The single most effective device to eliminate incriminating evidence.
Me – Yes, that’s right. Not pointing fingers at my parents or anything, but I know enough biology to conclude, that I indeed am a miracle. A scientific miracle.
Things I noticed while writing this article:
I do not understand the term Science Humour. I have never related science to humour, apart from sado-sarcstic humour.
Due to lack of understanding I have decided to title the article as Science & Humour Oxford Dictionary defines science as organized knowledge, esp. when obtained by observation and testing facts, about the physical world, natural laws and society. Huh? I go back to: I am not a woman of Science.
I rest my case.
