Orkut favourites

Right now I'm too busy to be prolific, so I'll make do by quoting other people. I'm losing interest in Orkut, after they blocked out all the graphics (may they boil in hell for that); so lest we forget, I compile here some favourite answers to all the weird questions that Orkut asks you - favourite, some in the sense of 'standard', and most in the sense of 'my favourite'.

(My) Favourite "From my past relationships I have learnt":

(Given their nature, I myself have absolutely no questions replied to in this section. ;-) But this one I like. I don't know the person, so I can't name him/her - but I acknowledge the debt.)

"Beautiful is better than ugly.
Explicit is better than implicit.
Simple is better than complex.
Complex is better than complicated.

Flat is better than nested.
Sparse is better than dense.
Readability counts.
Special cases aren't special enough to break the rules.
Although practicality beats purity.
Errors should never pass silently.
Unless explicitly silenced.
In the face of ambiguity, refuse the temptation to guess.
There should be one-- and preferably only one --obvious way to do it.
Although that way may not be obvious at first unless you're Dutch.
Now is better than never.
Although never is often better than *right* now.
If the implementation is hard to explain, it's a bad idea.
If the implementation is easy to explain, it may be a good idea.
Namespaces are one honking great idea -- let's do more of those!"

(Makes sense, yeah?! At least a lot of it does! :-))

(My) Favourite "About me":

(My orkut-friend Jason Thomas writes those. And it changes frequently. The one he has on now is neither too obscure, nor witty, as they used to be, so I put it up here just for academic (!!) purposes. Worst bit is, that he has lost all interest in Orkut, and has not been surfacing at all to change it.)

"Its time for change. The world its changing even the drugs they are changing. So I could change. But then how can I. I mean me is an entity with flesh and blood.So change is what. But before we enter into the gravity of the talk the point at hand is who is me? Indeed if i send a letter to myself which should come in 2 days, is it to me?or that future me will it in any way be a part of me me now.Yes that's me. Oh and am being protestant for a few days. My LSD expired."

(Standard (most!!!)) Favourite "Ideal match":

1. India-Pakistan
2. One that lights at one go.

(Sigh!)

(One of my) Favourite communities in terms of declared purpose:

"I never had sex with the Pope

Description: Join this group if you've never had sex with the Pope. If you don't join, I suppose it can only be assumed that you have had sex with the Pope."

(Far out!!!)

(Can't think of any more. Will put up, if I do!)

I once opened a friends orkut page and it said under 'about me' the following:
me' is a pronoun that is used by a person to refer to himself/herself.

More on 'me':
* when written in capitals, it implies Master of Engineering.

* State in New England region of United States


And some standard respones were

But the most hilarious one was
"Honestly do you even care?"
