AYM GRAMD - etymology.

Nilu, as usual, is doing what he does best - overdoing....

that coolers are moving apart is a totally unremarkable fact... what would have been remarkable is if they werent/hadnt already... and i have also come to realise that at some point in life, individuals matter more than a group. behind his veil of denial, i hope he gets this fact.

Anyways, here is my version on the origin of aym-gramd. it all started in the cooling western union summit at chicago. And guru was explaining why he chose what he chose. and i was trying to explain why i've chosen not to choose what he chose, and instead chose to be labelled a misanthropist by others, rather than being called a hypocrat by my own conscience. This is the crux of what i told him...

If guru does what he says he would do, i'd be among the first people to appreciate. What pissed me off then was the condescending attitude with which he acknowledged my point. It was an "Its ok, i understand!" attitude, and not "I respect your point"...

Its ok if people dont give me recogntion for my thoughts...but please dont give me condescension...i dont need it.

And the rest is history....
more about this later...

hehe - kindly understand one thing.....the reason I have a blog is to masturbate my ego - so what I write is often not what I know....and even if I know - it is probably an efoort to confuse others away from reality into what I want them to think....
