A US survey has revealed that sleeping with the boss helps women climb several notches up the corporate ladder. You can be a smart ass chick, be brainier than Einstein, but the well being of your career depends on the presence of a ‘sugar daddy’ willing to give you that extra push or so says the report (wondering whether a boss-type funded this report). But considering how asinine most of our bosses are (am thinking of my last boss) this is a really scary proposition.

If you are thinking of trying to make a career in Indian Politics, there’s some really bad news for you. According to a report in TOI, India may have the youngest population of the world’s biggest countries, but it has the oldest ministerial candidates. The average age of an Indian cabinet minister is 64.4. Yes, we are being governed by old fogies and young aspiring women leaders are expected to to deal with them. The safest, sleep-worthy cabinet can be found in UK, where the average age of an elected cabinet is 53.

So that they can arrive bright eyed, bushy tailed to their office and make a move for their boss.
Next time when you bite into that apple, remember to pay a silent thanks to the chaotic cosmos. A study shows that the apple may have evolved as a direct result of the comet impact thought to have wiped out dinosaurs 65 million years ago. And don’t we all know how the humble fruit changed the course of History and resulted in some Biology. Imagine Eve trying to tempt Adam with bite sized dinosaurs? Ugh….
And before I sign off, an update on Ms Hilton’s smile. Paris (the socialite) was arrested for possession of cocaine which she now claims is a case of grave miss-understanding. Gee, I thought the cocaine was chewing gum. Next time, come up with a better excuse girl!
