They Saw, They Conquered

Time is still a bit scarce, so I'm not able to update the blog as much as I'd like to.

Couldn't resist this though. The latest 'get rich quick' scam in Bangalore. The guys responsible seem to have a cruel sense of humour. Look at the name - Vini Vinc. Some reports have the name of the actual firm as Vini Vinc Investments. Abbreviating - Vini Vinci. That's 2/3rds of Caesar's statement Vedi Vini Vinci! - I came, I saw, I conquered. So the firm's name can be taken to mean - I saw, I conquered. I would have preferred Vedi Vinci - I came, I conquered. But the people involved were already here most probably.

On the other hand, I'm probably being too fanciful.
