A barber's shop

One day a florist went to a barber for a haircut.

After the cut, he asked about his bill, and the barber replied, 'I cannot accept money from you, I'm doing community service this week.

The florist was pleased and left the shop.

When the barber went to open his shop the next morning, there was a 'Thank You' card and a dozen roses waiting for him at his door.

Later, a grocer comes in for a haircut, and when he tries to pay his bill, the barber again replied, 'I cannot accept money from you , I'm doing community service this week.

The grocer was happy and left the shop.

The next morning when the barber went to open up, there was a 'Thank You' card and a bag of fresh vegetables waiting for him at his door.

Then a politician came in for a haircut, and when he went to pay his bill, the barber again replied, 'I cannot accept money from you. I'm doing community service this week.

The politician was very happy and left the shop.

The next morning, when the barber went to open up,
there were a dozen politicians lined up waiting for a free haircut.

And that, my friends, illustrates the fundamental difference between the citizens of our country and the politicians who run it.

The Prestige (Engineering Version)

The Prestige (Engineering Version)
Every Engineering semester consists of three parts or acts.

The first part is called "The Preparation".
The University shows you something ordinary: "The Syllabus"
They shows you this object. Perhaps they asks you to inspect it to see if it is indeed manageable, easy, normal. But of course... it probably isn't.

The second act is called "The Exam".
The University takes the ordinary something and makes it do something extraordinary. Making each student totally insane.

Now you're looking for the solution...but you won't find it, because of course you're not really looking. You don't really want to know. You want to be fooled. But you wouldn't cry yet.

Because just shattering your self confidence isn't enough, they have to break student's ability to believe in himself/herself.

That's why every Engineering semester has a third act, the hardest part.

The part we call "The RESULTS"!!
