Friday humour - July 29, 2011

The edition this week is on the thin side, not because of lack of
contributions, more a case of duplications, but thank you anyway for
sending them in, there is a filter built into the system which highlights
dupes, and sometimes they are so funny, or go back sufficiently far to
repeat them at our discretion - please bear with us when this happens

How true is this !!!!!!!

Britain is changing it's name, we are going to be known as Daftland.
I have had this poem from some years back, and it tells you why.
My compliments to the person who wrote it R.Hopkins of Eastbourne .

Daftland

We live in a country called Daftland
The Britain we knew is no more
Where sensible people do ludicrous things
Or risk breaking some Daftland law.
In Daftland we've police dogs with muzzles
Less the villain has cause to complain
And to steal from a shop and say 'sorry'
Means your free with no stain to your name.

You had better leave lights on in buildings
When you lock up and go home at night
'cause the burglars might hurt themselves entering
And there's no way you'll be in the right.
When speaking be wary in Daftland
As some terms that you've used all your life
Now have connotations unintended
And you'll end up in all sorts of strife.

We elect politicians in Daftland to give us the laws of the land
Yet eight laws in ten now come from abroad
The whole thing has got out of hand.
The borders are open in Daftland
And of migrants there's no keeping track
Just a few of the thousands illegally here
Will ever be caught and sent back.

The exception to this is the hero
Who fought for this land in the war
He's old and he's sick, he might cost us a bit
So he's not welcome here any more.
When the history is written of Daftland
Historians may just recall
That the craziest people in Daftland
We're the public who put up with it all

Donnelly arrives to go to work. Peter the Sand Dancer, with a simple stick
and a rake (and a not-so-simple gift of vision), paints elaborate works of
art in the sand while hundreds watch in awe and appreciation.

A guy was driving down a motorway in England with his blonde girlfriend and
she piped up,
"I think those people in the car next to us are from Wales".
"Why do you think that ?" he said.
"Well, the kids are writing on the window and it says
"stit ruoy su wohs".

This sums it all up!
- People born before 1946 were called The Silent generation..
- People born between 1946 and 1959 are called The Baby Boomers.
- People born between 1960 and 1979 are called Generation X, ...
- And people born between 1980 and 2010 are called Generation Y ,

Why do we call the last group Generation Y?

Y should I get a job?
Y should I leave home and find my own place?
Y should I get a car when I can borrow yours?
Y should I clean my room?
Y should I wash and iron my own clothes?
Y should I buy any food?

IN GOD WE TRUST - MORAL OF THE PORCUPINE


I never knew porcupines were so cute as babies.
Good story with a great message.
Have you
Ever seen a baby porcupine?

Fable of the Porcupine


It was the coldest winter ever.   Many animals died because of the cold.
The porcupines, realizing the situation, decided to group together to keep
warm.
This way they covered and protected themselves; but the quills of each one
wounded their closest companions. After awhile, they decided to distance
themselves one from the other and they began to die, alone and frozen. So
they had to make a choice:  either accept the quills of their companions or
disappear from the Earth. Wisely, they decided to go back to being
together.
They learned to live with the little wounds caused by the close
relationship with their companions in order to receive the heat that came
from the others. This way they were able to survive. The best relationship
is not the one that brings together perfect people, but when each
individual learns to live with the imperfections of others and can admire
the other person's good qualities.

The moral of the story is: Just learn to live with the pr*cks in your life!

Where have these pics been hiding for the past 65 years?
Japanese Kawanishi H8K seaplane after strafing. Kwajalein
Squad of Rufe's at Bougainville . These things were very nimble even with
the pontoons.
The A6M2-N float plane version of the Zero did extremely well, suffering
only a small loss in its legendary maneuverability. Top speed was not
affected, however, the aircraft's relatively light armament was a
detriment.
Snow on deck. USS Philippine Sea North Pacific 1945
HARVS on the way in shot by a P-47. Rare shot.
Deck crew climbing up to get the pilot out. He did. Thats a fuel tank his
foot is on. Empty?
Marines disembark LST at Tinian Island .
Bougainville.

German 280mm K5 firing

V1
Spitfire "tipping-off" a V1. If you've never heard of this insane tactic

At first V1's were shot down by gunfire. Optimum range was inside 200yds,
which was marginal for survival. Many planes were damaged and quite a few
pilots killed. Basically at such high speed and low altitude a plane had to
fly though the explosion and hope.

With the high risk of being blown up some of the best pilots started
tipping the V1's wing, because of damage to wing tips they later developed
a tactic of disrupting the airflow by placing their wing very close to the
V1's wing,
causing it to topple.

Not every pilot did this. At night this was not possible, the flame from
the
V1 blinded the pilot to everything else, though some Mossie pilots flew
past closely in front of the V1, again causing it to topple..
