Antarctica Daily by Arkadeep Mukhopadhyay - 8h ago

In 2015, I published 91 posts.

In 2016, the total dropped to 58.

In 2017, it dropped further to 44.

In 2018, it jumped up to 177 posts, with an average post frequency of 0.48 posts per day, thanks to consecutive daily posts for 120+ days!

In 2019, I have made only 8 posts so far.

But now, it’s the time to publish more actively.

So, I have planned out three spans of 50 consecutive posts this year, to add 150 more posts to the total.

  1. The first posting spree begins on 1st March (a Friday).
  2. The second spree will begin on 31st May (a Friday).
  3. The third one will have its humble beginning on 4th October (a Friday).

I have already pretty much decided the format of the posts, which is 1+(7*7). The first post will be an introductory one. Followed by seven weeks of diverse posts including news articles, short stories, fiction, serials and poems. I will lay down the exact battle plan in the introductory post of the three spells.

The reason I took the decision to follow this weird posting schedule is simply because I have been inspired by the 7 weeks challenge android app, which I have recently downloaded from the Play Store! Also, 49 is a perfect square of 7, considered to be a lucky number and 50 is, you know, half century and 1 is the multiplicative identity, also, 1 added to 49 gives 50; hence, I decided 1+(7*7) will be a nice strategy to schedule my upcoming posts!

P.S. You must have hated the weird formatting, haven’t you?

hanGOver 3.14 is a comically tragic and tragically comic movie directed by the Editor-in-Chief of the ONLY newspaper from the Southernmost Continent, who has lately been suffering from existential crisis, evident from the sheer number of times he has pondered over the meaning of life, after forgetting to give a f, thus rendering his life as a lie. The movie would premier on February 30, 2019.

The cast includes great names such as Chandler Muriel Bing, Charlie Francis Harper (turns out this dude is still kickin’ it and hasn’t yet kicked the bucket), Barnabus ‘Barney’ Stinson and Sheldon Lee Cooper, all of whom have signed on a contract stating, “We, the actors of this terribly terrific movie, shall never reveal that – in the end, we eventually find Barney who initially goes missing but still manage to crash into Charlie’s delayed funeral, which was staged by Monica, Amy and Robin simply to make Chandler scream out, “Could this BE any dumber?”, Sheldon scream out something about a possible alternative to string theory and Barney simply smile and say, ‘Damn, that was Leg-now wait for the END-ary!'”

The fact that the spoiler preventing contract is itself the greatest spoiler has perhaps skipped the attention of the director amidst his busy schedule. Okay! Who are we kidding? He plays with penguins all day long, FINE?

Fans, the unfortunate few who do exist, are going crazy to book their tickets for the movie premier which will be held in an Antarctic Cinema hall that is famous for its Antarctic Popcorn and Antarctic Popcorn without the acronym of Presidential Cacophonous Orchestra. Just kidding kids. People at Antarctica are very family friendly.

If you want to book a ticket, then you would have to go here and click on the BIG RED BUTTON.

Note from Editor: And that kids, is how I made my first movie…

We have lived enough into the future to witness the blessings turn into curses. The fault isn’t ours, although at the back of the mind, we are sanguine that it is indeed us who are responsible. We had been ambitious once and today we realise that the fruit our technology bore wasn’t a sweet apple but rather a sour orange. Yes, we messed up big time. And now is the time when we reason out why?

Cars had started flying a few years back. Gasoline prices were running low. Engines were providing better torques and it was only a matter of redesigning the aeronautics of our grand old conveyances. A little streamlined here and a little wing there. A tyre replaced with a propellor and an antenna replaced with a rudder. Yep, that’s all we needed. To have our SUVs take off and our sedans start gliding.

Human beings, the intelligent yet innocent children of nature found a new toy to play with. Pilots started to ditch their jobs and retire with a flying car. The airlines started to fall out of business. The demand for gasoline fell and the prices dropped harder than Marshmello’s beats.

Middle class households having spotted the gleam of gold in the iron propellers of the new Teslas poured out their savings for a personal trip to the sky. The rich took this craze to an entirely new height. I mean, they bought cars that could fly even higher.

The poor however kept on watching. For they had not the means to experience the fun. But who knew, that in the ripe old age of 22nd century, our civilisation would still be suffering from instant karma?

You see, the flying cars every middle class and rich human being took the sky were perfect in every sense. But, they had a teeny tiny little problem. The landing gear was not yet adapted into the cars. So none of those dumb machines could land.

Once a family took off, they kept on hovering. The solar panels kept on supplying energy and amazon drones had the food supply covered but the prospect on landing on the ground seemed to be nearly impossible. The sky slowly got filled with millions of flying care incapable of landing!

It might concern you that why no one spotted this before taking off. Well let me tell you a thing or two ’bout how the human mind works. If we see a new thing, we try it. And desperate negation from every car in the air, proves to be insufficient to stop us. Gradually, only the people who couldn’t afford it, became the only ones left on this planet.

They were truly the kings and queens of the planet. But being compassionate as we are, they could not stand the misery of their fellow mates. They threw longer and longer ropes up into the sky to help the flying crew climb down. As soon as a party did climb down, their fancy car either flew right away into the space or crashed right down up onto the ground. True, the colours of unity were shining everywhere brightly, but half of the flying cars which flew into space crashed into our satellites and the other half which fell down, massacred the buildings.

It was a true Renaissance indeed. Humans were once again children with no tools but only memoriesion the lap of mother nature. We were all united. But we had lost every car, building and satellite we had ever built and all this just because of the goddamned flying curse of the flying cars!

In our lives, we all have given tips. Be it to a waiter or be it to a junior, the habit of giving tips is ever present in the human society. So here are the top 10 tips you should follow to give the most perfect tip!

Always clarify first, which type of tip you wanna give. That is monetary or advisory.

Never tip off amidst a tip.

Never give a tip while biting the tip of your tongue.

If you trip while giving a tip about a foreign trip, then always mention that your country is the best.

Never give the tip that tip up seats are tipped up. Let the people sit atop the folded seat. Wait for them to trip. Then tiptoe your way to infront of them. Now give the tip you have been waiting to give.

If you give a tip of more than 50 bucks, make a YouTube video about it and film the waiter’s reaction.

If a device is in tip-top condition, a tip to preserve it usually useless.

Give a tip only if no one asks for it. People who give tips after being asked, are the reason why we still don’t have flying cars.

Save your Grammar tips for the end of the argument your losing.

Yeah I know, it’ll be you’re, but you’re not in an argument with me, so save your tips for God’s sake. Trippling tips is better than tipping triplets because tipping tips and trippling triplets can be weird.

It has been proved beyond every doubt that Cats are fundamentally incapable of catching caterpillars. In a study conducted by University of Universal Universe (UUU), galaxy famous scientist Dr Mangolicious M. Magellan, whose middle name, btw, is Mangolicious M. Magellan, has busted every myth regarding caterpillar catching ability of cats.

He informed us about his discovery with a weird tweet, which is posted below.

That’s pretty much it. We know nothing else. He too knows nothing else, according to the sources.

So, here’s an advice, don’t believe everything you see on the internet. You can believe everything you see on our website, that’s for sure. But when we ourselves are unsure of what we are sharing, and we are sharing that we are unsure, and we are unsure whether we are sharing whatever we are sharing, then it is implied that we must be unsure of whether you should surely share it or simply be unsure of everything you have ever heard of.

The Third Day: Peter PettyPew, a die hard PewDiePie fan, rose to the pinnacle of his career when he made an exchange deal that was set to become the most famous example of barter system of his times, which by the way, is also our times, kinda because he is our contemporary.

Peter woke up on a funny sunny morning, with a burning warning in his motile mobile phone, about the fact that he had only a few cents left in his back account. A bank balance, such as his, could easily render any “otherwise economically unsupported” human being foodless and cashless, within a matter of seconds. Therefore, following the inevitable course of future, he did indeed go broke, within, guess what, a matter of seconds.

But who can say for sure, perhaps a bitter gourd will be the answer. If economics can avail him to buy a bitter gourd and renders it edible, perhaps society would reap a great benefit.

So, what had to happen, did happen. Peter went to an exchange forum and exchanged the only prized possession of his, a guitar, and boldly sold it for the first food product he could have exchanged it for. And he was going to take this one chance, but it wasn’t simply just a feeling that he had got, so if it meant, what he thought it meant, then he wasn’t in trouble, no trouble, and if the food was a bitter gourd as he thought, then he was taking the chance. Because that was what his mind needed.

If, none of this makes any sense to you, I understand. It is not supposed to. But, it will, once I tell you the secret. And the secret is…. that the bitter gourd was also bitter cold. Now, with that thought in your mind, go and read the post again and let me know later, whether the time you spent was a wrathworthy waste or a wise investment, of which you still are not sure of.

The Second Day: We all know something about the words we should never search on google. Amazingly, a survey shows that specifically those words are the ones which turn out to be the most searched in our history.

So we have compiled the list of 5 more words which no one should search because we know that no one will search them either even if they were being paid a hefty sum to do exactly that.

Google What’s the point? You’re already on Google! Bing If the whole reason for your existence was to search using Bing, then why on Earth did you ever dream of searching on Google?

The First Day: The internet is a grand place. It has diversity. It has depth. It can be dark. It can be deep. But most importantly, it has a lot of news. A lot of new news, a lot of old news, a lot of old news, a lot of gold news, that is, news about gold. It has got news about cake and has got news that is fake. It is this last category that will concern us till the end of this seemingly non-fake, yet fake, news article.

90% of all News is Fake News! A bold claim indeed, with its boldness amplified by the fact that the word bold is formatted bold. But, perhaps all the boldness was not so bold afterall, as days within publishing the news about fake news, the news source gets tagged as a fake news source. How and why this happened is interesting. We hope, you will be interested.

An unnamed news source named Unnamed News Source was the source of the news that ruled the world for 3 long days. In those 3 days, every newspaper subscription was cancelled, every cancelled newspaper was subscribed and every subscribed cancellations were reported in newspapers. The world had literally stopped and trust was quickly becoming an untrustworthy investment.

The news that was responsible for all this was a simple, in fact too simple, more like childishly simple, article, that stated, 90% of All News is Fake News. On the following day, humans for the first time, woke up to their mobile phones, instead of newspapers. The traffic to every social media site exponentiated. The number of likes and follows and subscribes that flew around made every account holder elated with their notifications. The entire world, for some reason, had collectively refused to listen or read any more news.

But soon, this short lived state of ignorance was about to end.  The News that changed everybody, suddenly got itself classified as a Fake News. All of a sudden, the internet traffic dropped and the whole world tuned into mainstream media and bought trillions of newspapers from outlets worldwide. Here in Antarctica, Penguins bought newspapers at the rate of one paper a microsecond. And all the changes that had changed the world, changed back and changed back for good.

We are not confident about this news either. We too had unsubscribed from every news source in the last three days. But today we are back and back we are with a bang. We, hereby, confidently publish our possibly fake news about a fake news that claimed that most of world news is actually, you guessed it, fake news!
