  2. Star Trek : First Contact
  3. Star Trek : The Undiscovered Country
  4. Star Trek : The Voyage Home

ROSHAN’S ELEVEN : Youtubers Whose Videos I Watch Religiously

I have a humble Youtube channel with a handful of subscriber but these guys really rock their channels with good content. These are the individually (or in some cases a small group) done videos not backed by a big production (Like Fung Bros or Buzz Feed) and in some cases are very simple with little to no editing done but they have fun, entertaining and interesting content. Therefore I watch them. I just realized that 11 is not a big enough number for me when it comes to channels I watch but for now these are the top 11.

ROSHAN’S ELEVEN : 11 Things I Expect In A Good Friend

Here is my criteria or just the top 11 for what I believe is needed to be a good friend.

  • Do not preach or offer unwanted advice but be supportive and offer suggestions. And support them no matter what decision they take.
  • When your friend is down & upset, be there in person with beer or in spirit with cheer
  • Humour
  • Loyalty
  • Have their back
  • Laugh at their jokes
  • Tease them horribly
  • Never let lent or borrowed money come in the way of your friendship
  • Get to know their family
  • Offer a ear that listens & a shoulder to cry on
  • Once in a while join in one of their activities which you have no interest in but hey – he/she is your friend

That’s all I got so far!

ROSHAN’S ELEVEN : What People In The Future Will Say About Us

What do you think people in the future, to  be safe and make it really distant let’s say people who live 5000 years from now, will look upon us and say about how we live now?

  • “Oh man, they believed in the stories of mythology and worshiped imaginary gods?” or “Man did they have some hokey religions back then! I can’t believe they believed in those gods/religions!”
  • “They used to kill living animals and cook their meat  and eat them? How disgusting & primitive!” or “They used to eat vegetables? How disgusting & primitive!”
  • “I can’t believe that all those humans lived just on the one planet!”
  • “They used WHAT to power their vehicles? Eww”
  • “Countries and borders? What are those?”
  • “What’s money/currency? No shit, they had to “work” for that and people had to buy things with them?”
  • “What’s rape/brutality/slavery/racism?”
  • “You mean they say in front of a display device and sat for hours? And that was entertainment?”
  • “What is this….politics that they had?”
  • “Body hair????? Yuck, ugh, gross!”
  • “They fought amongst each other and killed millions of themselves? They weren’t very evolved were they?”

Those are my top 11

ROSHAN’S ELEVEN : Items I Buy @ The Grocery Store

I wish I could take you with me to my local grocery store – the grocery stores I go to here are small shops that you can’t enter into but stand in front of the counter and call out the items or hand over a list and the store keeper gets them for you from his tiny shop. Some items might be within your reach as they are on the counter or hanging from the bar above (like stuff you get in packets – chips or mixture or nuts) and some veggies which he places on racks in the front of the store. When I go to buy stuff from there for our home I usually buy these things every 2nd or 3rd visit:

  • bananas
  • biscuits
  • rusk – for dipping into coffee and eating
  • pen torch or AA sized batteries
  • shampoo (I usually only get small sachets of Head n Shoulder that is for one shower)
  • bread
  • dosa mavu (dosa spread)
  • chappathis (ready made chappthis that a local company makes and sells in packets)
  • Maggi instant noodles
  • cutlets
  • lemonade (freshly made)

There you have it, the 11 most purchased items from me at my corner grocery store!
