Cupcakes are Not a Diet Food

Cupcakes

While on a Caribbean Cruise and after numerous bottles of Moscato wine and several trips to the all-you-can-eat dessert bar, four sisters decided to write a book about their love affair with food and their experiences with diet disasters. With a combined 224 years of experience between the sisters, they consider themselves experts at diet failures. 

Once the title of the book was decided, they eagerly disembarked the ship, headed home, and not very quickly began writing about their diet bloopers and failures.  
After they discussed their work-in-progress with their older, and wiser, and normal-weight brother David, he realized the book was a fun idea, but it would need some insight into good nutrition and exercise and so he graciously or reluctantly (depends on who you ask) volunteered to add some of his wisdom and knowledge to the readers and to his sisters.

It is an unsafe site:

I am unfamiliar with this site. One thing to be aware of is that my book is not free. It sells for 99 cents. Beware of any sites that say the book can be downloaded for free.

“I have So Many Scars on My Body, But I’m Sure I’ll be Proud of These”

VASANTH PAUL

Source: Vasanth Paul. Facebook Post. 22 July 2016

http://tinyurl.com/jlv33kz

On 22 July 2016, Vasanth Paul of Chennai, India, drove home after seeing a movie titled Kabali. He had to urinate, so he stopped his vehicle [apparently a motorbike], but he heard a noise that at first he thought was an animal, but then he heard a girl ask for help. Three men were getting ready to rape the woman. He fought the three men, one of whom attempted to strangle him with a rope. He was forced to call for help, and the driver of an auto rickshaw came and helped him fight off the three men, who escaped but who did not succeed in their attempt to rape the woman, who did not want a police report filed.

After Mr. Paul’s Facebook post about the incident went viral, he tried to find the spot where the incident had occurred but was unable to. He said, “I have been co-operating with the police and took them to the place where I thought it happened. I am not able to identify the exact spot.” Police Deputy Commissioner of Police Kalyan said, “As far as the police is concerned, the case is closed as we are unable to trace the victim or the autorickshaw driver either.”

Mr. Paul provided a few more details about the incident: “I was travelling from T.Nagar to Chromepet at around 11:30 pm on Friday. I took a detour through Alandur to avoid the main road. I took a left before the Royal Meridian. I stopped on my way to take a leak. I heard some noise which sounded like moaning. I thought it must have been an animal or someone with a sex worker. But seconds after I switch on my bike the noise increased. I heard the person crying for help. I pointed my headlight at the direction from where the noise was coming.”

He said that while he was fighting the would-be rapists, “Meanwhile the woman ran away. I thought she had escaped. But she got back within two minutes. She was the one who got the auto driver. The auto driver helped chase the men away.”

This is the lightly edited text of Vasanth Paul’s 22 July 2016 Facebook post:

“I have so many scars on my body, but I’m sure I’ll be proud of these… Today was just a wonderful day, I got to watch Kabali, first day, first show … met a couple of my close friends … had a beautiful time … and when I was returning back home, I took a detour at Alandur, to avoid the f[**]ked-up roads between the underpass and the airport during their renovating hours … I generally try to get past this before they shut it down … I’m glad I didn’t … on my way I stopped by to pee (I’m sorry, I couldn’t hold it) and extended my stop for a smoke … right behind me was an empty piece of land and I heard mourning sounds combined with sounds of resistance … for a few seconds, I thought it was a cat or some kinda animal making out, not longer did I realize it were human … I tried walking away but instantly heard a faint drugged cry saying ‘bachao [Hindi for help] … please help … annaannaanna.’ I immediately shouted out angrily and jumped in hoping a passerby would hear and join to help … There were 3 guys, none of them from the south. (I know this cos I can understand all four languages spoken in the south.) It wasn’t normal Hindi, it had some kinda accent to it … not sure though …

“The moment I jumped in, a guy engaged in a fist fight and I could see a girl drugged full on and two guys trying to undress her … within seconds I was strangled by the other with a thick jute rope … the more I tried repelling, the more it cut through and intense the situation became … thankfully I was able to create enough time and space for the girl to get out and get an autowala’s [an auto rickshaw driver’s] attention … he stopped right away and ran in to my rescue … he beat the sh[*]t out of those bastards and saved our [*]ss … but they ran off … it took me a bit to breathe normal. No police case was filed as per her request … the sad thing was I circled the area for the next half hour and I couldn’t find a single cop to even notify of this event … but my friends are on the lookout for those c[*]nts as I type … we’ll get to you bastards soon enough …

“Moral of the story:

“Don’t be afraid to face a situation, just cos you’re alone … if the cause is right, the world would join you right away!!!!!

“Stay safe, people … and look out for one another!!”

Superintendent of Police Sanjiv Tyagi: Hero

On 11 June 2016, a woman and her daughter boarded an AC bus traveling from Nainital to Delhi, India. The bus driver and four staff members started acting inappropriately toward the two females as they traveled, so the woman attempted to contact UP and Uttarakhand police control room, but she was unsuccessful in getting help. She searched the Internet and found the contact number for police officer Sanjiv Tyagi, SP, Rampur. She called him and said, “I am traveling from Nainital towards Delhi in a bus, UP 21 5252, whose current location is in Rampur [UP]. The bus staff and some ruffians are misbehaving with us. They are drinking alcohol. I have been trying to contact police control room but not getting any assistance. We require immediate help.” Mr. Tyagi told her not to disconnect the phone but to keep it hidden. He then led a team of police to rescue the woman and her daughter. They were physically unhurt. SP Sanjiv Tyagi said, “The police have registered an FIR [Field Investigation Report?] as per her complaint and arrested five men and escorted the traumatized woman to her hometown.”

Chet Baker: Jazz Trumpeter, Vocalist

Chet Baker (1929-1988) was a jazz trumpeter and vocalist — search YouTube and listen to him singing “My Funny Valentine” — who was voted best trumpeter in the 1989 critics poll in Down Beat Magazine and inducted into the magazine’s Hall of Fame. Apparently, before his death he was voted Best Trumpeter two years in a row. Mr. Baker knew that Miles Davis, a true genius, was a better trumpeter than he was, and so he told him that he felt like writing him a letter of apology. Mr. Davis told him, “You got about 15 other letters to write before you get to me.” Mr. Baker could respond wittily to bad criticism when he chose to. Wynton Marsalis, who is technically superb, was critical of Mr. Baker, who was less technically accomplished but who had a distinctive and original approach to jazz. Mr. Baker responded to the criticism by saying, “If I could play like Wynton … I wouldn’t.”
