Cause & Effect

You can singlehandedly create a causal relation between two things that are currently unconnected — a word and an emotion, a song and an extreme weather event, wearing a certain color and winning the lottery. What cause would you link to what effect, and why?

Cause and effect? If I could create a link from a cause to a effect man I would have a field day wouldn’t it? I’d do all sorts of things. How about if I smile, all the people in my vicinity should smile back? If I cough or sneeze everyone around me should get me a hot cocoa or a coffee. If I were anything black, the rates for the taxis should become half of what they normally are. And if I shave in the morning and wear aftershave, hot women should line up outside my door to smell my face and caress it before French kissing me!

Ok, how about – whenever it rains all women (single women between the ages of 18-45) in saris have to start dancing in the style of either “Tip tip barsa pani” or “Katte nahin kat te ye din ye raat” (Bollywood songs, check them out). Everytime I enter a bar, someone has to buy me a beer and some snack. Everytime a new phone I like gets released to the public, the makers have to send me a model of it for me to review and keep. Every big blockbluster Hollywood movie that gets released, I get free balcony tickets with complimentary popcorn and drinks. Every evening I happen to be out for a drink, some stranger offers me a free ride home.

For every Rs.10 I spend, Rs.1000 magically appears in my wallet. For every meal I eat and gain a pound, I lose 10 in turn. Everytime I get a muscle ache, a Swedish blonde bombshell woman masseuse shows up at my door to give me a full body massage. I could go on and on but this is getting ridiculous. I better stop; I have extremely naughty thoughts in my head.
