Just Imagine!

Written by jim Peters

Imagine, just for a minute thatrepparttar real world started operating likerepparttar 118264 Internet does.

First, we'd have a choice of two brands of everything. Instead of dozens or even hundreds as we do now. Want soup, it's either brand A. or brand B. Need a new car, again, A. or B. (feel free to substitute IE for brand A. and N for brand B.)

Sure sounds like things would be simpler, and if things went as they should, both A. and B. brands would be doing everything in their power to make their product/services better and less expensive thenrepparttar 118265 other guy. WOW! Can you imagine, a gas war over everything. (For those readers who have never experienced a gas war, it was when 1 gas station dropped it's price to 40 cents per gallon which was 2 cents less thanrepparttar 118266 station acrossrepparttar 118267 street. The station acrossrepparttar 118268 street then went to 38 cents. This went on until we were buying gas for 20 cents per gallon)

Some other very interesting side effects would also occur.

1. If you received a phone call you hadn't requested, you could notifyrepparttar 118269 phone spam police and they would disconnectrepparttar 118270 offending callers telephone.

2. If you opened your snail mail box to find anything addressed to occupant you would be entitled to $50.00 per piece of offending mail to be paid by your postal delivery person.

3. If your electric utility company decided they weren't making enough money or they just got tired of being, your utility company, they could, without warning, close there doors and shut off all their customers leaving them totally inrepparttar 118271 dark, and without recourse.

Hai! My name is Vijay Chidambaram. Iím 15 years old. Iíve finished my 10th standard board exams. Iíve written it quite well, I think. However, that is not what worries me. I know what Iíve written and also probably what marks I will get. What worries is whether my marks will be up torepparttar expectations of my parents, relatives and well-wishers

You see, my father is a doctor and my mom is a school principal. Both of them have their own ideas what my mark should be. Heck, I could deal even with them. Itís my relatives Iím most worried about. You see,repparttar 118263 dayrepparttar 118264 12th standard results were announced, my mom got STD calls from my native place, asking when my results would be announced!

And also, people I only remotely know (whom I have met only once or twice) have started taking a great interest in my results. People I pass by onrepparttar 118265 way torepparttar 118266 shops are asking about my results. Shop-owners are asking about my result. And oh yes,repparttar 118267 teachers working under my mom inrepparttar 118268 school (of which she isrepparttar 118269 principal are also asking about my results. My results, results, results... why are they so important?
