Ruminations about mechanical banks

This is quite hilarious. I recently bought some antiques that are mechanical banks made in the early 1900’s from Colaba Causeway. When I searched for these on eBay, I was amazed to see that there is a market for pretty much anything on eBay (considering that cats’ souls and Virgin Mary faced toasts have been sold, my shopping expedition had some merit after all). So I tried looking for “mechanical banks” on eBay India. Guess what the search results came up with – question banks for mechanical engineering.

I wasn’t so much disappointed by the fact that there was no market for the mechanical banks, but found it really funny that Engineering question banks were floating around on auction sites. I remember the good ol’ days of Engineering when crash courses and copying assignments seemed like the only way to clear exams, and how not even for one moment did I wonder at my apathy and ennui in those four years.

I hate second-guessing myself, but time and again, I’ve found myself wondering how life as an architect would have been.

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic [url=]Viagra 100mg pills[/url] is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
