We've a cloud full of stuff here at Bluehaze, so lets get on with it.

Subject: Negative people

This is something to think about when negative people are doing their best
to rain on your parade... So remember this story the next time someone who
knows nothing and cares less tries to make your life miserable.

A woman was at her hairdresser's getting her hair styled for a trip to
Rome with her husband..  She mentioned the trip to the hairdresser, who

" Rome?  Why would anyone want to go there? It's crowded and dirty. You're
crazy to go to Rome.  So, how are you getting there?"

"We're taking Continental," was the reply. "We got a great rate!"

"Continental?" exclaimed the hairdresser. " That's a terrible airline.
Their planes are old, their flight attendants are ugly, and they're always
So, where are you staying in Rome  ?"

"We'll be at this exclusive little place over on Rome 's  Tiber River

"Don't go any further. I know that place.  Everybody thinks its gonna be
something special and exclusive, but it's really a dump."

"We're going to go to see the Vatican and maybe get to see the Pope."

"That's rich," laughed the hairdresser. You and a million other people
trying to see him.  He'll look the size of an ant.

Boy, good luck on this lousy trip of yours. You're going to need it."

A month later, the woman again came in for a hairdo. The hairdresser asked
her about her trip to Rome .

"It was wonderful," explained the woman, "not only were we on time in one
Continental's brand new planes, but it was overbooked, and they bumped us
up to first class. The food and wine were wonderful, and I had a handsome
28-year-old steward who waited on me hand and foot..

And the hotel was great! They'd just finished a $5 million remodeling job,
and now it's a jewel, the finest hotel in the city. They, too, were
overbooked, so they apologized and gave us their owner's suite at no extra

"Well," muttered the hairdresser, "that's all well and good, but I know you
didn't get to see the Pope."

"Actually, we were quite lucky, because as we toured the Vatican, a Swiss
Guard tapped me on the shoulder, and explained that the Pope likes to meet
some of the visitors, and if I'd be so kind as to step into his private
room and wait, the Pope would personally greet me.

Sure enough, five minutes later, the Pope walked through the door and shook
my hand! I knelt down and he spoke a few words to me."

"Oh, really!  What'd he say?"

He said: "Who f*cked  up your hair?"


What to do in an Earthquake - Makes Sense (Timely advice from Allnuts - ED)

Boy! Is this ever an eye opener. Directly opposite of what we've been
taught over the years! I can remember in school being told to, "duck and
cover" or stand in a doorway during an earthquake. This guy's findings are
absolutely amazing. I hope we all remember his survival method if we are
ever in an earthquake!!!


My name is Doug Copp. I am the Rescue Chief and Disaster Manager of the
Rescue Team International (ARTI), the world's most experienced rescue team.
The information in this article will save lives in an earthquake.

I have crawled inside 875 collapsed buildings, worked with rescue teams
from 60 countries, founded rescue teams in several countries, and I am a
member of many rescue teams from many countries...

I was the United Nations expert in Disaster Mitigation for two years. I
have worked at every major disaster in the world since 1985, except for
simultaneous disasters.

The first building I ever crawled inside of was a school in Mexico City
during the 1985 earthquake. Every child was under its desk. Every child
was crushed to the thickness of their bones. They could have survived by
lying down next to their desks in the aisles. It was obscene,
unnecessary and I wondered why the children were not in the aisles. I
didn't at the time know that the children were told to hide under

Simply stated, when buildings collapse, the weight of the ceilings falling
upon the objects or furniture inside crushes these objects, leaving a
space or void next to them. This space is what I call the "triangle of
The larger the object, the stronger, the less it will compact. The less the
object compacts,
the larger the void, the greater the probability that the person who is
using this void for safety will not be injured. The next time you watch
collapsed buildings, on television,
count the "triangles" you see formed. They are everywhere. It is the most
common shape, you will see,
in a collapsed building.


1) Most everyone who simply "ducks and covers" WHEN BUILDINGS COLLAPSE are
crushed to death. People who get under objects, like desks or cars, are

2) Cats, dogs and babies often naturally curl up in the fetal position. You
should too in an earthquake... It is a natural safety/survival instinct.
You can survive in a smaller void. Get next to an object, next to a sofa,
next to a large bulky object that will compress slightly but leave a void
next to it.

3) Wooden buildings are the safest type of construction to be in during an
Wood is flexible and moves with the force of the earthquake. If the wooden
building does collapse, large survival voids are created. Also, the wooden
building has less concentrated,
crushing weight. Brick buildings will break into individual bricks. Bricks
will cause many injuries but less squashed bodies than concrete slabs.

4) If you are in bed during the night and an earthquake occurs, simply roll
off the bed. A safe void will exist around the bed. Hotels can achieve a
much greater survival rate in earthquakes, simply by posting a sign on The
back of the door of every room telling occupants to lie down on the floor,
next to the bottom of the bed during an earthquake.

5) If an earthquake happens and you cannot easily escape by getting out the
door or window, then lie down and curl up in the fetal position next to a
sofa, or large chair.

6) Most everyone who gets under a doorway when buildings collapse is
How? If you stand under a doorway and the doorjamb falls forward or
backward you will be crushed by the ceiling above. If the door jam falls
sideways you will be cut in half by the doorway. In either case,
you will be killed!

7) Never go to the stairs. The stairs have a different "moment of
frequency" (they swing separately from the main part of the building). The
stairs and remainder of the building continuously bump into each other
until structural failure of the stairs takes place. The people who get on
stairs before they fail are chopped up by the stair treads - horribly
mutilated. Even if the building doesn't collapse, stay away from the
stairs. The stairs are a likely part of the building to be damaged. Even
if the stairs are not collapsed by the earthquake, they may collapse later
when overloaded by fleeing people. They should always be checked for
safety, even when the rest of the building is not damaged.

8) Get Near the Outer Walls Of Buildings Or Outside Of Them If Possible -
It is much better to be near the outside of the building rather than the
interior. The farther inside you are from the outside perimeter of the
building the greater the probability that your escape route will be

9) People inside of their vehicles are crushed when the road above falls in
an earthquake and crushes their vehicles; which is exactly what happened
with the slabs between the decks of the Nimitz Freeway... The victims of
the San Francisco earthquake all stayed inside of their vehicles. They
were all killed. They could have easily survived by getting out and
sitting or lying next to their vehicles. Everyone killed would have
survived if they had been able to get out of their cars and sit or lie
next to them. All the crushed cars had voids 3 feet high next to them,
except for the cars that had columns fall directly across them.

10) I discovered, while crawling inside of collapsed newspaper offices and
other offices with a lot of paper, that paper does not compact. Large
voids are found surrounding stacks of paper.

Spread the word and save someone's life... The Entire world is experiencing
natural calamities so be prepared!

"We are but angels with one wing, it takes two to fly".

In 1996 we made a film, which proved my survival methodology to be correct.
Turkish Federal Government, City of Istanbul, University of Istanbul Case
Productions and ARTI cooperated to film this practical, scientific test. We
collapsed a school and a home with 20 mannequins inside. Ten mannequins did
"duck and cover," and ten mannequins I used in my
"triangle of life" survival method. After the simulated earthquake collapse
we crawled through the rubble and entered the building to film and doc*ment
the results. The film,
in which I practiced my survival techniques under directly observable,
scientific conditions,
relevant to building collapse,
showed there would have been zero percent survival for those doing duck and

There would likely have been 100 percent survivability for people using my
method of the "triangle of life." This film has been seen by millions of
viewers on television in Turkey and the rest of Europe, and it was seen in
the USA , Canada and Latin America on the
TV program Real

Subject:  The Pope

The Pope was having a shower. Although he's very strict about celibacy, he
occasionally felt he needed to exercise the Papal wrist, and this happened
to be one of those occasions.

Just as he reached the Papal climax, he saw a photographer taking a picture
of the Holy seed flying through the air.

'Hold on a minute! ', said the Pope, 'You can't do that - you'll destroy
the reputation of the Church!'

'This is my lottery win,' said the photographer, 'I'll be financially
secure for life with these photos!' So, the Pope offered to buy the camera
from the photographer, and after much negotiation, they eventually settled
on a figure of $2,000,000.

The Pope clothed himself and headed off to destroy the images on the

Subject:  How True?

        The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable
of entrusting a man like him with the presidency. It will be easier to
limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the
necessary common sense and good judgment to an electorate willing to have
such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more
serious than
Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails us. Blaming the prince of the
fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made
him their prince. The republic can survive a Barack Obama. It is less
likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their
president.” -- Author Unknown

A trucker came into a truck stop cafe and placed his order.  He said, "I
want three flat tires, a pair of headlights and pair of running boards."
The brand new blonde waitress, not wanting to appear stupid, went to the
kitchen and said to the cook, "This guy out there just ordered three flat
tires, a pair of headlights and a pair of running boards. What does he
think this place is, an auto parts store?"
"No," the cook said. "Three flat tires mean three pancakes, a pair of
headlights is two eggs sunny side up, and running boards are 2 slices of
crisp bacon."
"Oh, OK!" said the blonde. She thought about it for a moment and then
spooned up a bowl of beans and gave it to the customer.
The trucker asked, "What are the beans for, Blondie?"
 She replied, "I thought while you were waiting for the flat tires,

Shocking event for Chinese medicine, which found that a one year old girl

has a baby in the womb, the child's twin brother. Doctors say that the
embryo was not caught in the womb and has found another place to grow. The
little girl will undergo a Cesarean delivery to bring out the baby. This
unusual phenomenon, very rarely is numneste "fetus in fetus" and can be
met once every 500,000 pregnancies.

 STUNNED doctors have discovered a one-year-old girl is carrying a BABY in
her tummy. Little Kang Mengru, from China , left medics baffled after her
