2013: Our wishlist for the new year (Part One!)

New Year Wishes

Happy new year to all of you CEians from all of us here at Absolute Zero (which means, only me. Ah well).

PS: What's on your wishlist? Put 'em up here and make the life of a lazy cartoonist easier 😉

Second comic shows that sent via or sent from irritates most. 😀 😛
I have been carrying Perry's Handbook around since 1960 and am still 55.5 kgs.
1. Getting out of CE addiction. (not blooming likely)
2. Go on a long (at least fortnight) holiday. (equally unlikely)
3. Learn Esperanto. (already started)
4. Learn Sanskrit (trying, but progress slow)
5. Develop a wearable heart pump. (that needs at least 7 years, by which time I may use it on myself)

Here is something to be learnt : mom's "antique" phone still rules, and is better than the tabs and touchscreens.

Mine is a third edition leather bound (1960). I weighed it on my digital scale. It weighs in at 2.4 kg +/- 50 gms.

At 73 I am at vintage level myself. We Chemical Engineering staff at IIT M got the book at half price. I still use it every day.

Then you must be a superb body builder. Two arms 10+10 kg and 35.5 kg weight.
Remember Sunny Deol saying I have 2.5 kg hands?😉

1. Getting out of CE addiction. (not blooming likely)
Failed.

2. Go on a long (at least fortnight) holiday. (equally unlikely)
Managed a five fortnight holiday and had a great time. Had to work two hours a day online.

3. Learn Esperanto. (already started)
4. Learn Sanskrit (trying, but progress slow)
3 & 4 going along.

5. Develop a wearable heart pump. (that needs at least 7 years, by which time I may use it on myself)
Did one animal test of the external version in mid December successfully. Hope to shave off two years from development time.

Became wiser and took an end of the year resolution to avoid new year resolutions.
Succeeded in that.

..ouch! Why saar? Why do you want to get out of CE addiction? We're working our butts off to make CE more addictive and more useful.

While this wish list post was current, there was another discussion on alcohol and other addictions. I had posted on my own struggle with nicotine in the sixties. It was in that context that I put up the above.

CE is more like food than a dalliance so there is no chance of addiction like to FB for example.
