Funny Moments in Courts


Court room is always instantaneous with the lawyers always shooting question at opposite parties and on witnesses.  Sometimes there happen very funny moments in exchange of words from both sides, Here are some of the most funny moments recorded in courtrooms.

1) Some things just aren’t straightforward enough

ATTORNEY: How was your first marriage terminated?

WITNESS: By death…

ATTORNEY: And by whose death was it terminated?

WITNESS: Take a guess.

2) Using the oath as a perfect reason to make a joke

LAWYER: Now sir, I’m sure you are an intelligent and honest man–

WITNESS: Thank you. If I weren’t under oath, I’d return the compliment.

3) Some questions are just too complicated

LAWYER: When he went, had you gone and had she, if she wanted to and were able, for the time being excluding all the restraints on her not to go, gone also, would he have brought you, meaning you and she, with him to the station?

OTHER LAWYER: Objection. That question should be taken out and shot.

4) There’s never a reason not to make a pun

LAWYER: Doctor, did you say he was shot in the woods?

WITNESS: No, I said he was shot in the lumbar region.

5) Taking responses too literally

ATTORNEY: ALL your responses MUST be oral, OK? What school did you go to?

WITNESS: Oral…

6) To be fair, those headlights are pretty flashy

LAWYER: Trooper, when you stopped the defendant, were your red and blue lights flashing?

WITNESS: Yes.

LAWYER: Did the defendant say anything when she got out of her car?

WITNESS: Yes, sir.

LAWYER: What did she say?

WITNESS: ‘What disco am I at?’

7) Everything is possible

ATTORNEY: Doctor, before you performed the autopsy, did you check for a pulse?

WITNESS: No.

ATTORNEY: Did you check for blood pressure?

WITNESS: No.

ATTORNEY: Did you check for breathing?

WITNESS: No…

ATTORNEY: So, then it is possible that the patient was alive when you began the autopsy?

WITNESS: No.

ATTORNEY: How can you be so sure, Doctor?

WITNESS: Because his brain was sitting on my desk in a jar.

ATTORNEY: I see, but could the patient have still been alive, nevertheless?

WITNESS: Yes, it is possible that he could have been alive and practicing law.

8) I don’t think that’s how memory works

ATTORNEY: This myasthenia gravis, does it affect your memory at all?

WITNESS: Yes.

ATTORNEY: And in what ways does it affect your memory?

WITNESS: I forget..

ATTORNEY: You forget? Can you give us an example of something you forgot?

9) Some people just simply aren’t good with numbers

ATTORNEY: How old is your son, the one living with you?

WITNESS: Thirty-eight or thirty-five, I can’t remember which.

ATTORNEY: How long has he lived with you?

WITNESS: Forty-five years.

10) Technically, it’s not wrong, which is the best type of being right

ATTORNEY: What is your date of birth?

WITNESS: July 18th.

ATTORNEY: What year?

WITNESS: Every year.

11) That one must’ve hurt…

ATTORNEY: The youngest son, the 20-year-old, how old is he?

WITNESS: He’s 20, much like your IQ.

12) Details matter

LAWYER: Any suggestions as to what prevented this from being a murder trial instead of an attempted murder trial?

WITNESS: The victim lived.

13) This seems like a trick question

LAWYER: You were there until the time you left, is that true?

14) Using the right to remain silent isn’t always the brightest idea

LAWYER: Did you ever stay all night with this man in New York?

WITNESS: I refuse to answer that question.

LAWYER: Did you ever stay all night with this man in Chicago?

WITNESS: I refuse to answer that question.

LAWYER: Did you ever stay all night with this man in Miami?

WITNESS: No.

15) This is when you need to switch attorneys

ATTORNEY: She had three children, right?

WITNESS: Yes.

ATTORNEY: How many were boys?

WITNESS: None.

ATTORNEY: Were there any girls?

WITNESS: Your Honor, I think I need a different attorney. Can I get a new attorney?

The Aga Khan: A spiritual guide, an intellectual guide who is committed to a humanistic attitude that is rooted in classical Islamic thought


This heresiographic literature describes all the sects in Islam from one point of view, the Sunnite point of view, the Shiite point of view, telling that ‘we, we have the truth, and the others don’t have anything’. This is the heresiographic interpretation of Islam which is totally irrelevant for us today.

Early Rise


The alarm clock started at 6 am but yet again i calmed it down for many times and got up at 7.30 am. After a long time I made breakfast and felt so fresh. Believe me missing breakfast  give the worst start for your day. It is my personal experience. Even having a cup of tea is better than having nothing.
I was trying hard for last many months to follow early to rise but was not able  and now I hope I can do it because for me doing any thing first time is hard and then it becomes a habit very quickly.
early rise in the morning gives the feeling of freshness and  long day to work out your other pending plans.

House MD


So yet again I felt I did late in watching House MD. It is one of the best series I have come across and enjoyed watching. This story is about an anti social mavric doctor who has his unique way of diagnosing unsolved illnesses. It has every thing. The curiosity and craziness of Dr House, the commitment of Dr Cuddy, the gentleness of Dr Willson. The story is both entertaining and useful specially for the medical field. The unique part of the whole series is the misery of Dr house whole life and his unique way of dealing both the patients and his team.

The character of Dr House is  the epic part of the series and the friendship of the trio(House, Cuddy and Willson) is most awesome part throughout the series. The teaching method of Dr House to his teammates and young doctors is perhaps the craziest and unique way.

Some of the most memorable moments and quotes of the series are :

Everybody Lies.  Dr House

People never change, the become more of who they really are. Dr House

If you are dieing, suddenly everyone loves you. Dr House

Random Thoughts


Loneliness is mother of the devil.How much this quote is true? Human mind is the most flixible and adobtive thing.It swings as per the surrounding environment. When in  company of  SCHOLARs it will look for scholarly knoweledge.
If the surrounding has abumdonce of negativity then it will look for negative thoughts.
Secondly when there is no activity the human mind will drift for nagative thoughs.So in order to ensure the effieiency and good productivity one must ensure to get engaged in some postive and refreshing activities when the mind is free.

3 ways to avoid distractions and be more productive


You’re at work, in the middle of tackling a project that requires intense focus. You’re on a roll. You’re in the zone. And then your phone rings, snapping you out of your flow. It’s just a telemarketer, so the call takes less than a minute. But then you check your email, your Facebook, look at your Twitter feed and decide you must text your friend.

When you finally get back to work – two, five, maybe 10 minutes after the initial interruption – it’s harder to focus. You pause to check your email again, peruse news sites and look at cute kitten pictures on Instagram. Consequently, you find yourself making more mistakes.

If that sounds familiar, you’re far from alone. Unfortunately, our brains are finely attuned to distraction and even the briefest ones have the power to decrease our productivity, a recent study published in the Journal of Experimental Psychology suggests. Indeed, the research found that a mere 2.8 second interruption more than doubled the number of errors study participants — 300 undergraduate students — made when asked to recall precisely where they were in a sequence of tasks.

“This contextual jitter— being taken out of the moment and landed back in a slightly different place may be why even momentary interruptions can seem jarring when they occur during a cognitively engaging activity,” the authors speculate.

It’s no wonder focused productivity is hard to achieve in this day and age. We are constantly interrupted multiple times a day by a ringing phone, a Twitter update, an incoming email and a chatty colleague…the list goes on and on.

That said, it’s not impossible to focus. Before chalking up a flow state as something that happens to other people, try these three strategies.

1. Block off “distraction free” chunks of time in your schedule. Be it 20 minutes or an hour, be rigorous. Hide your phone, email and Twitter feed. In fact, eliminate temptation by blocking out the Internet altogether.

There is a bevy of application out there including that help with distractions, including Anti-Social, SelfControl and Freedom. (Read more about Freedom: The Surprising Strategy One Man Used to Eliminate Procrastination)

2. Identify where and when you’re most naturally productive. The majority of us can only truly focus for an average of six hours a week, says David Rock, co-founder of the NeuroLeadership Institute and author of Your Brain at Work (HarperCollins, 2009), so it’s crucial that we use the time wisely.

Most people focus best in the morning or late at night, which means we generally aren’t at our the most productive during the typical 9-to-5 work schedule. Rock recommends identifying where and when you focus best, then allocate your toughest tasks for those moments — even if that means getting some work done outside of normal office hours.

3. Quash your inner child. Distraction and procrastination are intertwined. It’s rare to find one without some trace of the other.

When we procrastinate, we’re often simply succumbing to the distractions around us, putting off work in order to feel good now. The quickest way to break the habit? Realizing that for many, if not most, getting started on important tasks, has nothing to do with how we feel, says Tim Pychyl, a psychology professor at Carleton University in Ontario, Canada, and the author of Solving the Procrastination Puzzle

“I don’t know where we learn this, but somehow we internalize the notion that our motivational state has to match the task at hand,” he says. “We don’t feel like doing something, and we think that’s a reason.”

He calls this six-year-old logic, and if we just grow up and realize that an unpleasant or difficult task will not be rendered magically more pleasant tomorrow, it will motivate us to concentrate now.

What three things do you need to do today?


You should be able to instantly answer this simple question, each day, every day, for the rest of your life. Without any tools other than the brain you were born with.

If you don’t have this skill, develop it. Practice, starting today. Right now.

What are you doing right now? Is it going to somehow result in one of those three things getting done today? Will this you get you to where you need to be by the end of the day?

I’m not asking you to admonish yourself or to make any changes to your routine. Just keep it simple, focus on the important things, and add a little layer of awareness.

So. Two items left. I’m doing pretty good today.
