When you woke up today, feeling down and lazy to work?
Feel that everyday you have to do the same old thing again & again?
Probably you can change the way you think! Just by simply think :
-Just wish I could go back 10 to 20 years back to enjoy my youth? But from 20 to 30 years from now where will I be? Think! you will never have the today you are having after 20 or 30 years! Enjoy your life now. You don't have to look back!
-Plan for a holiday, go with your friend or your loves one! Plan far ahead so you can look forward for the special day!
-Life is unfair, you don't have to compare you life with somebodies else. If you want to compare, compare with the ppl who are least fortunate than you!
-Everyday you made choice either to be happy or unhappy when you wake up from bed. Choose to think positively.
-When you feel uneasy, down, angry, sad and etc, try to breath slowly and calm down. Believe in everything has a solution.
-Talk and discuss with your friend with your unhappiness, don't keep it to yourself.
This is just my 2 cent idea. Hope it is useful for you..

The film received mixed reviews from critics. Rotten Tomatoes reported that 29% of critics gave positive reviews, based on 81 reviews. Furthermore, another review aggreator, Metacritic, gave the film a 41/100 approval rating, based on 21 reviews from mainstream critics.
Despite the generally negative reaction from critics, Roger Ebert awarded the film three stars for not having any adult-themed scenes, as in his review he wrote, "It's as slam-bang preposterous as any R-rated comedy you can name. It's just that Paul Blart and the film's other characters don't feel the need to use the f-word as the building block of every sentence."
Paul Blart Mall Cop was a box office hit. The film ranked #1 at the Canadian and United States box office with $9,791,368 from 3,144 theaters for an opening-day average of $3,105. During the film's entire 3-day opening weekend, the film remained at #1, grossing a total of $31,832,636, for a 3-day average of $10,125, outgrossing its $26 million budget. It grossed $39,234,238 over the entire 4-day MLK weekend, for a 4-day average of $12,479. The film was the second-best opening of all-time for the MLK weekend, behind 2008's Cloverfield. The film stayed at #1 in its second weekend, grossing another $21,623,182, dropping just 32 percent, and boosting the 10-day income to $64,923,380. As of April 28, 2009, the movie has grossed $176,102,023

Three decades ago James Bond (then enacted by British star Roger Moore) wowed the world with a car that could 'fly' under water in the movie The Spy Who Loved Me. Only, it was animation and not an actual scene.
But Frank M Rinderknecht, the 52-year-old automobile visionary and boss of Swiss automaker Rinspeed, has turned a dream into reality with his 'sQuba.'
Rinspeed sQuba is the most exciting thing at this year's Geneva Motor Show and is creating many a ripple.
SQuba is the world's first real submersible car that can 'move like a fish underwater'.
It can dive up to 32.8 feet (10 MT) below the surface of the water and can move at a sedate 1.8 miles per hour.
The sQuba has an open cockpit for 'safety reasons' (so that people can get out easily anytime in case of an emergency). The occupants of the car have to breathe compressed air through built-in scuba masks.
SQuba is an electric car that uses rechargeable lithium-ion batteries and 3 electric motors for propulsion.. It is a zero-emission car as documented by the rotating license plate in the rear. It produces no exhaust emissions.
The 'sQuba's' filling station is the water reservoir.? It is no surprise that the vehicle features powerful yet energy-saving LED lighting technology.
The first car that could drive underwater was Quandt's Amphibicar, built in 1968. Only 3,878 were produced but many are still being driven on roads.
Then Gibbs Technologies came up with Gibbs Aquada in 2004 which Virgin boss Richard Branson used to break the speed record for crossing the English Channel .
However, the sQuba seems to be the most exciting of them all.
To drive on the roads, the sQuba 'relies on a stainless coil-over suspension from KW automotive and large Pirelli tires mounted on custom-made forged light-weight wheels from AEZ with 17- and 18-inch diameters.'
