It’s usually the more the merrier unless you are having the last scoop of ice cream and your friends are around. Then you want more of ice cream, less of friends. What happens when a group of young people get together and dance on the streets? Some call it art, some call it a statement and some get irked by the latter. That’s what RS is for, voice your thoughts. Which brings us to our readers. The more the merrier because our readers always help us decide what our publication will be. This week, they decided on the cover. Next week, the flavour of cake. Life goes on. --

It's all paper thin!

We Bangladeshis may not have much, but we do have a sense of humour. We laugh, sometimes a little hysterically. We have to, given our situation. But that situation has also lent us some peculiar insights that cut very nicely through BS. Unfortunately, fortune hasn't graced the British people the same way.

Some genius somewhere in Britain came up with this brilliant idea to reduce crime. Said genius reasoned - using the logical deductive abilities developed over millennia of evolution - that criminals are afraid of the embodiment of law, i.e. the policemen. If there's a cop in a store, there's less chance of some crook trying to rob it. So far so good.

But it is not possible to have a policeman stationed at every store in the whole of Britain. So what to do? Call in Police Constable Bobb. He has the amazing ability to be in many places at once, due to him being, in fact, a life-size cardboard cut-out of a 6-foot tall policemen.

It's a mark of human intelligence that this idea was actually implemented. A cardboard cut-out was meant to reduce crime. The plan was working perfectly, except on the night of the 22nd, PC Bobb was stolen from a store in Yorkshire, proving that criminals are still the paragons of human intelligence.

PC Bobb is having a hell of a time running with the thieves, too. His pictures have apparently appeared over the internet, showing him chilling at house parties.

We can't believe these people managed to rule us for 190 years.

Science Pfft: Destroying science one atom at a time

The Underground Heavy Weight
By The Sceptic

We all heard of the Higgs Boson by now - there was almost as much talk about it in the last few months as of Charlie Sheen on rehab. Yours truly believes that the Higgs Boson is not of the same importance as one whole man and this explains why we don't hear much about CERN anymore. With all the discussion and Facebook posts about the Boson, it seems we all have a deep understanding of physics and the only thing that's stopping us from getting the next Nobel Prize is the lack of huge underground tunnels. Another reason to immediately install a subway.

So what was the Higgs Boson all about and what exactly will it do for us? Well according to those people on God knows what taking the public fund to play high speed particle racing in the name of science, the Higgs Boson proves the existence of the Higgs field. They say the Higgs Field is what gives us our mass, it is everywhere and we can't see it. Yes, they claim that's all science. They also say that, as we can manipulate the electromagnetic field, we might also be able to manipulate the Higgs Boson field.

How does that help us? In no way whatsoever; except maybe it might help make the 'bigger people' a little thinner, at least on the scales. But really, invisible particles? The stuff they expect us to believe - next they will be talking about undead zombie cats in boxes. Oh, wait…

Boss to an employee: Do you believe in life after death?
Employee: Certainly not! There's no proof of it.
Boss: Well, there is now. After you left early yesterday to go to your uncle's funeral, he came here looking for you.

1st baby: You spend a good bit of every day just gazing at the baby.
2nd baby: You spend a bit of everyday watching to be sure your older child isn't squeezing, poking, or hitting the baby.
3rd baby: You spend a little bit of every day hiding from the children.

1st child: when first child swallows a coin, you rush the child to the hospital and demand x-rays.
2nd child: when 2nd child swallows a coin, you carefully watch for coin to pass.
3rd child: when 3rd child swallows a coin you deduct it from his allowance!

October was originally the eighth month of the Roman calendar. It comes from the Latin word "octo" meaning eight. Later, it became the 10th month when January and February were added to the Calendar.

The Saxons called the month Wintirfyllith because it had the first full moon of the winter season.

People like to talk. Apparently without issues. Not really a surprise considering our politicians. Here're some of the things they said.

You said that by liking your page, no one lost their lives, but I got seriously injured by liking this page. So I want you to rewrite the warning like this: where so far no lives have been lost and someone got injured. (I dropped from my chair)

That which is good can also be evil. Jason Bourne used a magazine as a weapon at one point. We suggest that you surround your chair with RS issues, so that you can be cushioned the next time you fall off your slippery chair. - RS

Mahin Ahmed
Do some 'art' special issue! Puhllleeeeeze!

But we did it already. - RS

Humanoid Storm
The fiction section needs romantic diction.

That's why we had Crunchy last week. Food is the ultimate romance. - RS

Junu Huq
I hope you guys will be making a review on Torchlight 2?

Coming soon. - RS

Abid Ebrahim

C'mon, five more minutes! Please! - RS

Siham Sarawat
On the footsteps of dreams, gave my dream of photography a new dawn. Thank you.

We try. Remember to mention us when you make it big. - RS
