Iyerospace On Joshienizer: When Size Doesnt Matter

I should have penned this at a much earlier date, but I refrained doing so due to safety concerns. Iyer was in Baltimore the long weekend of 27th May. OK, make that Baltimore, DC and NYC. And I thought I should wait till he leaves USA for good, such that there is no security threat to me after I hit publish.

For those of you who have never seen Iyer, above is a caricature of his, drawn by a street-side artist in NYC. And Iyer is funnier than this looks. On a side-note, it is strongly believed that the artist has fancied Iyer naked, with shoes, a bow-tie, handcuffs and a guitar covering the essentials.

Anyways, let me skip all the boring stuff and get to what you guys have been waiting for. The Iyeronics.

Walking in DC, near the White House, we come across a huge STOP sign at an entry gate. Under which is another sign - "Permit Holders Only."
Me: "Hmmm.... we cant go"
Iyer: "No re. See, its Stop: Permit holders only. We dont have a permit right? We can go"

.... and he walks through. And doesnt get arrested.

In NYC, walking on Wall St., Iyer comes across a few cops.

Iyer: "Hey hey hey. NYPD! Do you think I could ask them to take a photo with me?"
Me: "Yeah, sure"
Iyer: "I'll ask 'em to point a gun at my forehead. How cool will that be?"
Me: "Lets keep walking"

Day 1 at my place, Iyer takes out a battery charger which has no connector for the socket. "It didnt go into the USA system, so I cut it off and insert the wires straight in."

Day 2 at my place, 2 AM. I hear a "Bhoop" sound, and then there is darkness. The funny part is I was washing my face with soap at this moment, so when I closed my eyes, there was light, and when I opened them, there was none, which for a moment put me in panic "I have lost vision" state. Till Iyer said, "I screwed up".

Lesson learnt - Never allow Iyer to stick two random wires into an electrical socket. So we spent a night in darkness, romantic candle-light and stuff.

And for those of you who think size does matter.

It doesnt.

This little guy can blow up an entire apartments electricity.

Never allow a person to stick two random wires into an electrical socket is a lesson that had to be learned?!

And this after 4 years of Engineering and 2 years of Mastering it! (not that you need engg for this, but you don't even have that excuse! :P)

Education clearly isn't what it used to be huh! :P

#Abhi: Iyer is to be blamed for anything brilliant.

#Anjali: Good girl! Put up that funny pic of yours!

#Sanjana: Please direct that question to Iyer. And Iyer is a commerce grad. So he has an excuse.
As about education - this is Iyer Education (as mentioned on the blog)

#Di: Yes, everyone got in that way. Whats important is, there was a sign, but no guard to stop us =D

Toon does look like Iyer... though I can just imagine Iyeropatni's reaction when she sees him in the tights. I mean, it took Superman to carry THAT off...

Hmmm...I have lights with wires inserted at my place - Nothing blows or blew up! I wonder what Iyer did to achieve that!
