FIFA World Cup 2006 - BRAZIL will be the Winner!!

If you believe in co-incidence or superstitious then Brazil is a definite WINNER of the FIFA 2006 World Cup. But having seen the Brazilian team in their Round 1 matches, most sport pundits are placing their bet on this South American team as the favourite to win. In fact, the sport bets I posted earlier also pointing to the Brazilian team to win the World Cup. Here are the arithmetic and a little addition of supertitious that BRAZIL will win the World Cup. I stole this entry from brainsick, I just can't resist!

Brazil won the world cup in 1994.
Before that, he had won this title for the last time in 1970.
If you add up: 1970 + 1994 = 3964

Argentina won the world cup for the last time in 1986.
Before that only in 1978.And 1978 + 1986 = 3964

Germany, though, won the world cup in 1990.
Before that, Germany won in 1974.
Look: 1990 + 1974 = 3964

This could lead us to guess the winner of the World Cup in 2002, since it should be the winner of the 1962 World Cup (In fact 3964 - 2002 = 1962).

And Brazil won the world cup in 1962! (And, in fact, Brazil won the 2002 WC)
This numerology seems to work! And now, who would be the winner of the 2006 World Cup? Let's see, 3964 - 2006 = 1958
And who won in 1958?....
Oh, Brazil did!!!

So guys ...... no doubts .. the Winner is already decided..!!!

Kuala Lumpur - 3rd Rudest City in the World

I am not surprised at all!!!

Rude cities: KL ranks third (taken from the The Malay Mail)
21 Jun 2006

KUALA LUMPUR: It wouldn’t surprise anyone who drives, parks, shops or uses public transport here, but Malaysia’s capital city has emerged the third-worst in the world for sheer rudeness.

Only Bucharest and Mumbai are worse when it comes to common courtesy, a Reader’s Digest survey of 35 of the world’s capitals has found.

Asian cities generally fared poorly in these rankings, eight of nine of them in the bottom 11, raising the notion that what is considered courtesy in the West — holding doors, helping strangers, service with a smile — is culturally alien in Asia.

The Times of London reported that Reader’s Digest magazine sent reporters into the principal city of each of the 35 countries in which it publishes to conduct a survey of local politeness. Three tests were employed: Dropping papers in a busy street to see if anyone would help; checking how often shop assistants said "thank you"; and counting how often someone held a door open.

London and Paris came a disappointing joint 15th, beaten by such cities as Berlin, Warsaw, Madrid and Prague. New York came top in the survey, with a score of 80 per cent, compared with 57 per cent for London and Paris.

Ed Koch, a former mayor of the city, said: "Since 9/11, New Yorkers are more caring. They understand the shortness of life."

The rudest city in the world, according to the survey, is Mumbai, which is even ruder than Bucharest, judged the rudest city in Europe, where door-holding, paper-picking and thanking the retail customer are not part of the culture. The Romanians are, the results show, much surlier than even the French.

Citizens of Zagreb, in Croatia, are the most willing to help you to pick up a pile of papers; one man insisted on helping despite arthritis and a bad back. The shop assistants of Stockholm are the most polite, unfailingly thanking customers for making a purchase.

In São Paulo, Brazil, even the criminals are civil; the researchers were attempting to buy sunglasses in an illegal market when the police arrived; the stallholder said "thank you" as he fled.

Moscow, meanwhile, is a very rude place indeed, with a score of only 42 per cent.

One woman, refusing to hold a door open, sneered to a Reader’s Digest researcher: "I’m not a doorman; it’s not my job to hold doors. If someone gets hurt, they should be quicker."

Courtesy is not big in Asia, either. Every city on that continent tested, with the exception of Hong Kong, finished in the bottom 10.


1. New York (80%)
2. Zurich (77)
3. Toronto (70)
4. Berlin (68)
