10 Biggest Brain Damaging Habits

10 Biggest Brain Damaging Habits

1. No Breakfast

People who do not take breakfast are going to have a lower blood sugar level. This leads to an insufficient supply of nutrients to the brain

causing brain degeneration.

2. Overeating

It causes hardening of the brain arteries, leading to a decrease in mental power.

3. Smoking

It causes multiple brain shrinkage and may lead to Alzheimer disease.

4. High Sugar consumption

Too much sugar will interrupt the absorption of proteins and nutrients causing malnutrition and may interfere with brain development.

5. Air Pollution

The brain is the largest oxygen consumer in our body. Inhaling polluted air decreases the supply of oxygen to the brain, bringing about a

decrease in brain efficiency.

6. Sleep Deprivation

Sleep allows our brain to rest. Long term deprivation from sleep will accelerate the death of brain cells.

7. Head covered while sleeping

Sleeping with the head covered increases the concentration of carbon dioxide and decrease concentration of oxygen that may lead to brain damaging effects.

8. Working your brain during illness

Working hard or studying with sickness may lead to a decrease in effectiveness of the brain as well as damage the brain.

9. Lacking in stimulating thoughts

Thinking is the best way to train our brain, lacking in brain stimulation thoughts may cause brain shrinkage.

10. Talking Rarely

How does a dedicated HR chap start off his love life?
I know... a letter is one of the first things that anyone can think of
and so does he too.

Enjoy the Fun.


Sub: Offer of love!

To Juliet
Grade 7.0 S.M

Dearest Ms Juliet,

I am very happy to inform you that I have fallen in Love with you
since the 14th of October (Sunday). With reference to the meeting held
between us on the 13th of Oct. at 1500 hrs, I would like to present
myself as a prospective lover. Our love affair would be on probation
for a period of three months and depending on compatibility, would be
made permanent. Of course, upon completion of probation, there will be
continuous on the Love training and performance appraisal schemes
leading up to promotion from lover to spouse.

The expenses incurred for coffee and entertainment would initially be
shared equally between us. Later,based on your performance,I might
take up a larger share of the expenses. However I am broadminded
enough to be taken care of, on your expense account. I request you to
kindly respond within 30 days of receiving this letter, failing which,
this offer would be canceled without further notice and I shall be
considering someone else.

I would be happy, if you could forward this letter to your sister, if
you do not wish to take up this offer.

Wish you all the best!

Thanking you in anticipation,

Yours sincerely,


Monkeys v/s management policies

8 monkeys v/s management policies(a bit lengthy text

Management : *8 Monkeys* ... ..*really** very interesting*

(This is based on an actual experiment conducted in U.K.)

*Put eight monkeys in a room. In the middle of the

room is a ladder,

leading to a bunch of bananas hanging from a hook on

the ceiling.*

*Each time a monkey tries to climb the ladder, all

the monkeys are sprayed

with ice water, which makes them miserable.*


*Soon enough, whenever a monkey attempts to climb

the ladder, all of the

other monkeys, not wanting to be sprayed, set upon

him and beat him up.

Soon, none of the eight monkeys ever attempts to

climb the ladder.*


*One of the original monkeys is then removed, and a

new monkey is put in the

room. Seeing the bananas and the ladder, he wonders

why none of the other

monkeys are doing the obvious. But undaunted, he

immediately begins to climb

the ladder.*


*All the other monkeys fall upon him and beat him

silly. He has no idea why.

However, he no longer attempts to climb the ladder.*


*A second original monkey is removed and replaced.

The newcomer again

attempts to climb the ladder, but all the other

monkeys hammer the crap out

of him. This includes the previous new monkey, who,

grateful that he's not

on the receiving end this time, participates in the

beating because all the

other monkeys are doing it. However, he has no idea

why he's attacking the

new monkey.*


*One by one, all the original monkeys are replaced.

Eight new monkeys are

now in the room. None of them have ever been sprayed

by ice water. None of

them attempt to climb the ladder. All of them will

enthusiastically beat up

any new monkey who tries, without having any idea



*This is how any company's policies get

cool couplets

A local newspaper (in England) ran a competition asking for a rhyme with the most romantic first line... but the least romantic second line. Here are some of the entries they received.

My feelings for you no words can tell,
Except for maybe "go to hell"

I thought that I could love no other
Until, that is, I met your brother.

Roses are red, violets are blue, sugar is sweet, and so are you.
But the roses are wilting, the violets are dead,
the sugar bowl's empty and so is your head.

Oh loving beauty you float with grace
If only you could hide your face

Kind, intelligent, loving and hot;
This describes everything you are not

I want to feel your sweet embrace
But don't take that paper bag off of your face

I love your smile, your face, and your eyes -
Damn, I'm good at telling lies!

My darling, my lover, my beautiful wife:
Marrying you screwed up my life

I see your face when I am dreaming.
That's why I always wake up screaming

My love, you take my breath away.
What have you stepped in to smell this way

really touching

this is really touchin ..............

Sanjay, a rich guy, loved fast cars and he did have a few in his


He loved to speed and could not be bothered about breaking speed

limits. Many a times he was

caught by the cops and speed radars, fined, but still he never

bothered until.

One day as he was driving at a very high speed as usual, he saw

a cop following him. The cop overtook him finally and asked him to stop


checked his license. He then took out his pad and started

Writing, and then handed over the sheet of paper to Sanjay.

How much was this one going to cost?!!!

Wait a minute.

What was this????

Some kind of joke? Certainly not a ticket.

Sanjay began to read:

"Dear Sanjay,

Once upon a time I had a lovely daughter. She was six when

killed by a car.

You guessed it - a speeding driver's car.

A fine and three months in jail, and the man was free. Free to

hug his three daughters.

I only had one, and I'm going to have to wait until Heaven,

before I can ever hug her again.

A thousand times I've tried to forgive that man. A thousand

times I thought I had. Maybe I did, but I need to do it

again. Even now. Pray for me.. And be careful, Sanjay, my son is

all I have left."

Sanjay turned around in time to see the cop's car pull away and

head down the road.

He watched until it disappeared. A full 15 minutes later, he

too, pulled away and drove slowly home, praying for forgiveness and

hugging a surprised

wife and kids when he arrived.

Life is precious. Handle it with care.

Funny how you can send a thousand jokes' through e-mail and they


like wildfire, but when you start sending messages regarding the

sanctity of life, people think

twice about sharing. Funny, how when you go to forward this

message, you will not send it to

many on your address list because you're not sure what they

believe, or what they will think of

you, for sending it to them.

Pass this on, you may save a life. Then maybe not, but we'll

never know until WE TRY

Gone are the days

Gone are the days..

The school reopened in June, And we settled in our new desks and benches!
When we queued up in book depot,And got our new books and notes!
When we wanted two Sundays and no Mondays,Yet managed to line up daily for the morning prayers.
We learnt writing with slates and pencils, and Progressed To fountain pens and ball pens and then Micro tips!
When we began drawing with crayons and evolved to Color pencils and finally sketch pens!
When we started calculating first with tables and then with Clarke's tables and advanced to Calculators and computers!
When we chased one another in the corridors in Intervals, and returned to the classrooms Drenched in sweat!
When we had lunch in classrooms, corridors, Playgrounds, under the trees and even in cycle sheds!
When all the colors in the world, Decorated the campus on the Second Saturdays!
When a single P.T. period in the week's Time Table, Was awaited more eagerly than the monsoons!
When cricket was played with writing pads as bats, And Neckties and socks rolled into balls!
When few played "kabadi" and "Kho-Kho" in scorching sun,While others simply played "book cricket" in the Confines of classroom!
Of fights but no conspiracies, Of Competitions but seldom jealousy!
When we used to watch Live Cricket telecast,in the opposite house in Intervals and Lunch breaks!
When few rushed at 3:45 to "Conquer" window seats in our School bus!
While few others had "Big Fun", "peppermint", "kulfi", " milk ice !" and "sharbat !" at 4o Clock!
Gone are the days Of Sports Day, and the annual School Day ,And the one-month long preparations for them.
Gone are the days Of the stressful Quarterly, Half Yearly and Annual Exams, And the most enjoyed holidays after them!
Gone are the days of tenth and twelfth standards, when We Spent almost the whole year writing revision tests!
We learnt,
We enjoyed,
We played,
We won,
We lost,
We laughed,
We cried,
We fought,
We thought.

With so much fun in them, so many friends,

So much experience, all this and more!

Gone are the days When we used to talk for hours with our friends!
Now we don't have time to say a 'Hi'!
Gone are the days When we played games on the road!
Now we Code on the road with laptop!
Gone are the days When we saw stars Shining at Night!
Now we see stars when our code doesn't Work!
Gone are the days when we even troubled the girls/boys on the street!
now we do have girls/boys around us but still dont find time to talk to them
Gone are the days When we sat to chat with Friends on grounds!
Now we chat in chat rooms.....!
Gone are the days Where we studied just to pass!
Now we study to save our job!
Gone are the days Where we had no money in our pockets and still fun filled on our hearts!!
Now we have the atm as well as credit card but with an empty heart!!
Gone are the days Where we shouted on the road!
Now we don't shout even at home.
Gone are the days Where we got lectures from all!
Now we give lectures to all... like the one I'm doing now....!!
Gone are the days But not the memories, which will be Lingering in our hearts for ever and ever and Ever and ever and ever .....
Gone are the Days.... But still there are lot more Days to come in our Life!!

Sinking Titanic

Titanic was about to sink. People on the ship were shouting, crying,
running and praying to God - just then a passenger had the following
conversation with the captain.

Passenger: How far is land, from here?

Captain: Two miles...

Passenger: Only two miles, then why these fools are making noise. I
have the experience of swimming even more.

Captain: .....????

Passenger: Just tell me in which direction, land is two miles from here?

Captain: Downward...
