Archimedes, Newton and Me

A teacher of mine advises to start love affair with words. Problem is withering memory of old age refuses to remember so many. Hmm hard work in need. Also scored absolutely pathetic for a current affairs test. Immediate reaction was an urge to bury head in a deep pit of mud and stay that way for the rest of life. However, urge stayed urge and head is still floating about. All light-weighted things do, they tell me. Or at least that’s what someone called Archimedes says, he found that in a bath tub.

I walk out, I get apples thrown at my head (affectionately of course), I take baths and err I have occasionally spotted bath tubs around. Why do these things never hit me? Why couldn’t it be me who discover floatation and gravity? Brilliant brain said: it was already done. And if possibility of multiple births exists, I must have been Archimedes once, born again to be Newton next, and finally born to be, err, me. Going by historical taste for discoveries, any day, any minute now, the world can expect something more. Expecting outside-Physics this time. Hmm should reserve meself a page in Wiki. This is going to be my url :



  1. You may have been Archimedes, but Newton was me.

  3. Seems like light bubs will be clicking on the side of your head sometime soon. Who knows what we might invent/discover. After all, Newton and Archi did need help from outer sources. Could be that guardian angels were throwin apples and bathing old mathematicians? That brings me to the question, Where the heck is my Guardian angel? Probably off in Hawaii sipping pina colada. Hmm, must work myself to make a mark in this world. Hope u’r Guardain angel is hovering around you.Keeping fingers crossed 2 see your wiki page soon!!! πŸ™‚

  5. @nithin, are you sure? I have been showing increasingly striking characteristics Newton was accustomed with.

  7. Thats neat ! Have you also thought about being born as Einstein, Newton, Shakespeare, Shelly et al ! That would be a combo offer ! Physics literateur !

  8. @mathew, LOL. Again, cut the discoveries and we have our connection established, the 3 of us πŸ˜€

    @Kavi, I am thinking about it. Its pretty tempting.

    Just lazy i guess.

  11. @Ketan, of course some of us are just lazy. Its got nothing to do with any kind of intellectual absence.

  14. Hi,
    That was real funny.
    Immediate reaction was an urge to bury head in a deep pit of mud – I am sure you were born an Ostrich too in one of your early lives.
    All light-weighted things do, they tell me πŸ™‚
