Was I a Parasite?

par·a·site n.

1. Biology. An organism that grows, feeds, and is sheltered on or in a different organism while contributing nothing to the survival of its host.

If that is the definition I too was a parasite. In fact all the mammals are parasite.

Death is hereditary but final words are not :D

As I went thru Rams' post "the ego... accident", I was thinking what will be Rams' final words of wisdom. Meanwhile I searched for a good one which I read somewhere recently and it is... "Go on, get out - last words are for fools who haven't said enough - Karl Marx" I found this at "dying words". From the same site I also found this.. "Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit - Jesus Christ." and some more. I had a chat with Rams' and asked her what her final words of wisdom will be. And she said these..
1. "world...u have not yet grown to realise what u were for"
2. "i came i saw i died thinking why was i ever born to die!"
3. "last when i saw... when i tread this path (before in my previous birth), i knew i wanted to come back... but this time around, i know...i DONT want to come back"

While asking her I too framed my own list..
1. "I am too excited that I am going to take birth some where else :D and do the same things which I did until now. How boring!!"
2. "God.. atleast the next time put me in the right place, I felt so much mis-fitted here".
3. "I feel so good to enter the other world but only thing that hurts is I can't come back and tell u people how good it is"
4. "Dear Wife.. Sleep not I may haunt ur dreams and turn it into a nightmare", an evil one that sparked my mind >:)
5. "I wish u come there soon" u refers to the people who r around me listening my final words of wisdom >:)

And Rams' second words of wisdom reminded me of Mathi's post on Seinfeld if I remember which said...
The most unfair thing about life is the way it ends. I mean, life is tough. It takes up a lot of your time. What do you get at the end of it? A death. What's that, a bonus? I think the life cycle is all backwards. You should die first, get it out of the way. Then you live in an old age home. You get kicked out when you're too young, you get a gold watch, you go to work. You work forty years until you're young enough to enjoy retirement. You drink alcohol, you party, and you get ready for High School. You go to grade school, you become a kid, you play, you have no responsibilities, you become a little baby, you go back into the womb, you spend your last 9 months floating... then you finish off as an orgasm! Amen.

- George Carlin (I got this from Seinfeldisms & Deep Thoughts)

I saw the movie "The Island" yday and may be some of my words of wisdom are inspired by that movie.
