Stock Market – Explained with monkeys!

Once upon a time in a village, a man appeared and announced to the villagers that he would buy monkeys for $10.

The villagers seeing that there were many monkeys around, went out to the forest and started catching them.

The man bought thousands at $10 and as supply started to diminish, the villagers stopped their effort. He further announced that he would now buy at $20.

This renewed the efforts of the villagers and they started catching monkeys again. Soon the supply diminished even further and people started going back to their farms.

The offer rate increased to $25 and the supply of monkeys became so little that it was an effort to even see a monkey let alone catch it.

The man now announced that he would buy monkeys at $50! However, since he had to go to the city on some business, his assistant would now buy on behalf of him.

In the absence of the man, the assistant told the villagers. “Look at all these monkeys in the big cage that the man has collected. I will sell them to you at $35 and when the man returns from the city, you can sell it to him for $50.”

The villagers squeezed up with all their savings to buy the monkeys.

Then they never saw the man nor his assistant, only monkeys everywhere!!!!

12 Ways To Get Rid Of A Telemarketer

1. If they want to loan you money, tell them you just filed for bankruptcy and you could sure use some money.

Ask, “How long can I keep it? Do I have to ever pay it back, or is it like the other money I borrowed before my bankruptcy?”

*********

2. If you get one of those pushy people who won’t shut up, just listen to their sales pitch.

When they try to close the sale, tell them that you’ll need to go get your credit card. Then, just set the phone down and go do laundry, shopping or whatever.

See how long that commission based scum waits for you to get your credit card.

*********

3. If they start out with, “How are you today?”

say, “Why do you want to know?” Or you can say, “I’m so glad you asked, because no one seems to care these days and I have all these problems, my sciatica is acting up, my eyelashes are sore, my dog just died….”

When they try to get back to the sales process, just continue on with telling about your problems.

*********
4. If the person says he’s Joe Doe from the ABC Company, ask him to spell his name, then ask him to spell the company name, then ask where it is located.

Continue asking personal questions or questions about the company for as long as necessary.

*********

5. This one works better if you are male:

Telemarketer: “Hi, my name is Julie and I’m with Dodger & Peck Services….
You: “Hang on a second.” (few seconds pause) “Okay, (in a really husky voice) what are you wearing?”

*********

6. Crying out, in well-simulated tones of pleasure and surprise,

“Julie!! Is this really you? I can’t believe it! Julie, how have you BEEN?”

Hopefully, this will give Julie a few brief moments of terror as she tries to figure out where the heck she could know you from.

*********

7. Say, “No,” over and over. Be sure to vary the sound of each no, and keep an even tempo even as they’re trying to speak. This is the most fun if you can keep going until they hang up.

*********

8. If MCI calls trying to get you to sign up with their Family and Friends plan, reply, in as sinister a voice as you can muster,

“I don’t have any friends…would you be my friend?”

*********

9. If they clean rugs: “Can you get blood out, you can? Well, how about goat blood or HUMAN blood – chicken blood too?”

*********

10. Let the person go through their spiel, providing minimal but necessary feedback in the form of an occasional “Uh-huh, really, or, “That’s fascinating.”

Finally, when they ask you to buy, ask them to marry you. They get all flustered, but just tell them you couldn’t give your credit card number to someone who’s a complete stranger.

*********

11. Tell them you work for the same company they work for.

Example:

Telemarketer: “This is Bill from Widget & Associates.”

You: “Widget & Associates!! Hey I work for them too. Where are you calling from?”

Telemarketer: “Uh, Dallas, Texas.”

You: “Great, they have a group there too? How’s business/the weather? Too bad the company has a policy against selling to employees! Oh well, see ya.”

*********

12. Tell the Telemarketer you are busy and if they will give you their phone number you will call them back.

If they say they are not allowed to give out their number, then ask them for their home number and tell them you will call them at home (this is usually the most effective method of getting rid of Telemarketers).

If the person says, “Well, I don’t really want to get a call at home,” say,

“Yeah! Now you know how I feel.” (smiling, of course…)

Keeping The Fish Fresh – Japanese Way

The Japanese have always loved fresh fish. But the waters close to Japan have not held many fish for decades.

So to feed the Japanese population, Fishing boats got bigger and went farther than ever.

The farther the fishermen went, the longer it took to bring in the fish. If the return trip took more than a few days, the fish were not fresh. The Japanese did not like the taste.

To solve this problem, fishing companies installed freezers on their boats. They would catch the fish and freeze them at sea. Freezers allowed the boats to go farther and stay longer.

However, the Japanese could taste the difference between fresh and frozen and they did not like frozen fish.

The frozen fish brought a lower price. So fishing companies installed fish tanks. They would catch the fish and stuff them in the tanks, fin to fin.

After a little thrashing around, the fish stopped moving.

They were tired and dull, but alive. Unfortunately, the Japanese could still taste the difference. Because the fish did not move for days, they lost their fresh-fish taste.

The Japanese preferred the lively taste of fresh fish, not sluggish fish.

So how did Japanese fishing companies solve this problem? How do they get fresh-tasting fish to Japan? If you were consulting the fish industry, what would you recommend?

Here is How Japanese Fish Stay Fresh:

To keep the fish tasting fresh, the Japanese fishing companies still put the fish in the tanks.

But now they add a small shark to each tank. The shark eats a few fish, but most of the fish arrive in a very lively state. The fish are challenged.

Have you realized that some of us are also living in a pond but most of the time tired & dull,

So we need a Shark in our life to keep us awake and moving? Basically in our lives Sharks are new challenges to keep us active and lively.

Does people considers North East a part of India?

Hi all, I was looking at the NDTV India news and was quite shocked to see the disturbing pictures being shown regarding the clash between the Tea tribes and the local people in Guwahati. As from a civilized society, we can never support such incident, but at this moment we need to pacify the situation before it spreads to other areas. Many of the information provided in the channel are not correct which may further provoke the tea tribes to create unrest in their areas. I am not sure the reporter who was gathering information how much competent he is but he needs to get a genuine report on the whole incident. The incident started with the involvement of people from the 15,000 strong crowd of the tea tribals in destroying properties of local people on the way and also manhandling people passing by. The resident of Guwahati so far bearing the series of bomb blast, bandhs etc cound’t stop themselves to see their own properties being destroyed by the tribals right in front of them and jumped into action. It also has not been mentioned that many people among the tribal crowd were carrying weapons which puts a question mark into their intention of the procession.

Lots of innocents both from the tea tribes and local areas were victimised out of which many were woman. The main blame has to go to the government for not able to mobilise enough security reinforcement and to the Leaders of the Tea tribals who has instigated the crowd to become violent.

The way NDTV is showing naked women running in streets and just one sided picture of injured tea tribes, it will provoke the illiterate tribes further to get into violence which will embroil more innocent people into trouble. We need to make sure that our fourth pillar of democracy doesn’t bring plight to people’s lives.. Moreover, when the incidence was happening channel was more busy with covering the cricket news, now after 2 days when they found a naked photo of a women running in the street, the channel trying to add fuel on the fire.

I would like to request the NDTV channel to consider the impact while displaying any such sensitive photos because we North eastern are already suffering from many burning issues.

Regards
