How to use Chop Sticks..?

1) Put one chopstick between the palm and the base of the thumb, using the ring finger (the fourth finger) to support the lower part of the stick. With the thumb, squeeze the stick down while the ring finger pushes it up. The stick should be stationary and very stable.
2) Use the tips of the thumb, index and middle fingers to hold the other stick like a pen. Make sure the tips of the two sticks line up.
3) Pivot the upper stick up and down towards the stationary lower stick. With this motion one can pick up food of surprising size.
4) With enough practice, the two sticks function like a pair of pincers.

Why is it that computers never have a "B" drive?
From: Anitha @ Fidelity (Bangalore)
The answer goes back to the glory days of floppy discs and DOS. The early DOS operating system designated two drives, A and B, strictly for floppy drives. Why? Because many early computers didn't have native hard drives -- they booted from Drive A, and ran applications from Drive B.Later, as computers came with hard drives, the second floppy drive became a useless appendage -- the computer equivalent of an appendix. To avoid confusion during the evolutionary window when computers with new hard drives coexisted beside computers with two floppies, the hard drives were given the "C" slot. Technically speaking, the "computer" isn't missing the B drive, it's just that later Microsoft operating systems have omitted it as unnecessary.

3 envelopes

A fellow had just been hired as the new CEO of a large high tech corporation. The CEO who was stepping down met with him privately and presented him with three numbered envelopes. "Open one of these if you run up against a problem you don't think you can solve," he said.
Well, things went along pretty smoothly, but six months later, sales took a downturn and he was really catching a lot of heat. About at his witís end, he remembered the envelopes. He went to his drawer and took out the first envelope. The message read, "Blame your predecessor." The new CEO called a press conference and tactfully laid the blame at the feet of the previous CEO. Satisfied with his comments, the press -- and Wall Street -- responded positively, sales began to pick up and the problem was soon behind him.
About a year later, the company was again experiencing a slight dip in sales, combined with serious product problems. Having learned from his previous experience, the CEO quickly opened the second envelope. The message read, "Reorganize." This he did, and the company quickly rebounded.
After several consecutive profitable quarters, the company once again fell on difficult times. The CEO went to his office, closed the door and opened the third envelope. The message said, "Prepare three envelopes."

Overseas Jobs
From: Rajarajan @ Tech Mahindra (Singapore)
In a poor zoo in India, a lion was very frustrated as it was offered not more than 1 kg of meat a day. The lion thought its prayers were answered when one of the managers at Dubai Zoo visited the zoo and requested the zoo management to send the lion to Dubai Zoo.
The lion was very happy and started thinking of a centrally A/C environment, a goat or two every day and a Dubai Residence Permit also.On the first day of its arrival at the zoo the lion was offered a big, very nicely sealed bag for breakfast.
The lion opened it quickly but was shocked to see that it contained peanuts. The lion thought that may be they cared too much for him as they were worried about his stomach as he had recently been shipped in from India.
The next day the same thing happened.
On the third day again the same food bag of peanuts was delivered.
The lion was very furious; it stopped the delivery boy and blasted him.
"Don't you know I am a lion... the king of the Jungle..., what's wrong with your management? What nonsense is this? Why are you delivering peanuts to me?"
The delivery boy politely said, "Sir, I know you are the king of the jungle but ...err... didn't you know that you have been brought here on a "monkey's visa."?

Today's STORY
3 Parrots
A man wanted to buy his son a parrot as a birthday present. The next day he went to the pet shop and saw three identical parrots in a cage.
He asked the clerk, "how much for the parrot on the right?

The owner said it was $250.
"$250", the man said."Well what does he do? "He knows how to use all of the functions of Microsoft Office 2000, responds the clerk.
"He can do all of your spreadsheets and type all of your letters."

The man then asked what the second parrot cost.
The clerk replied, $500, but he not only knows Office 2000, but is an expert computer programmer.

Finally, the man inquired about the cost of the last parrot.
The clerk replied, "$1,000."
Curious as to how a bird can cost $1,000, the man asked what this bird's specialty was. The clerk replies, "Well to be honest I haven't seen him do anything.
But the other two call him "SIR"
