This is a wonderful, thought-provoking, one minute clip

You may have seen this before, but some things are worth seeing again.

It's not what you say, but how you say it.

Full of wisdom. . . . and very brief.

It's not a joke, it's not religious, it's not political.

It's just . . . special. I think you'll agree.

Please enjoy this one minute clip; it is truly special. It has a meaning

Blood Clots/Stroke - They Now Have a Fourth Indicator, the Tongue

I will continue to forward this every time it comes around!
Remember the 1st Three Letters..... S T. R.
During a BBQ, a woman stumbled and took a little fall - she assured
everyone that she was fine (they offered to call paramedics) ....she said
she had just tripped over a brick because of her new shoes.
They got her cleaned up and got her a new plate of food. While she appeared
a bit shaken up, Jane went about enjoying herself the rest of the evening.
Jane's husband called later telling everyone that his wife had been taken
to the hospital - (at 6:00 pm Jane passed away.) She had suffered a stroke
at the BBQ. Had they known how to identify the signs of a stroke, perhaps
Jane would be with us today. Some don't die. They end up in a helpless,
hopeless condition instead.
It only takes a minute to read this.
A neurologist says that if he can get to a stroke victim within 3 hours he
can totally reverse the effects of a stroke...totally. He said the trick
was getting a stroke recognized, diagnosed, and then getting the patient
medically cared for within 3 hours, which is tough.
Thank God for the sense to remember the '3' steps, STR. Read and Learn!
Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. Unfortunately,
the lack of awareness spells disaster. The stroke victim may suffer severe
brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke.
Now doctors say a  bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple
S  *
Ask the individual to SMILE.
T  *
Ask the person to TALK and
SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE  (Coherently) (i.e. It is sunny out today.)
R  *
Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS.
If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks,
call emergency number immediately and describe the symptoms to the
New Sign of a Stroke -------- Stick out Your Tongue
NOTE:  Another 'sign' of a stroke is this: Ask the person to
'stick' out his tongue. If the tongue is 'crooked', if it goes to one side
or the other that is also an indication of a stroke.
A cardiologist says if everyone who gets this e-mail sends it to 10 people;
you can bet that at least one life will be saved.
I have done my part.  Will you?

Subject: Wave a big towel

Some years ago, in a small coastal Irish community, Paddy married a woman,
Maggie, half his age, All was well at first until Maggie took delivery of a
'woman's' magazine and began to read things about s*x. It soon became clear
that she had never climaxed during s*x and, according to her Grandmother,
all Irish women are entitled to a climax once in a while…

To resolve the problem, Paddy and Maggie went to see the Veterinarian since
there was no doctor within thirty miles who could be relied upon not to
gossip. However, the Vet didn't have a clue. He did recall however that
during hot summers, his mother and father would fan a cow (with a big
towel) that was having difficulty breeding. Apparently,
this cooled her down and helped her to relax. So he recommended they hire a
strong, virile young man to wave a big towel over them while they were
having s*x. This, the Vet said, should cause the young wife to cool down,
relax and possibly achieve the sought after climax.

So the couple hired a strong young man from Dublin to wave a huge bath
towel over them as the Vet suggested.

After many efforts, Maggie still had not climaxed so they went back to the
Vet who suggested she change partners and let the young man have a go while
Paddy waved the big towel.

They tried it that night and Maggie went into wild, screaming,
ear-splitting climaxes, one right after the other for about two and a half

When it was over, Paddy looked down at the exhausted young man and in a
boasting voice shouted, "And that, me auld son, is how ya wave a feckin

Some interesting responses, but the last one is especially touching.

'I think beer must be good. My dad says the more beer he drinks the
prettier my mom gets.'
--Tim, 7 years old

'Beer makes my dad sleepy and we get to watch what we want on television
when he is asleep, so beer is nice.'
--Melanie, 7 years old

'My Mom and Dad both like beer. My Mom gets funny when she drinks it and
takes her top off at parties, but Dad doesn't think this is very funny.'
--Grady, 7 years old

'My Mom and Dad talk funny when they drink beer and the more they drink the
more they give kisses to each other, which is a good thing.'
--Toby, 7 year old

'My Dad gets funny on beer. He is funny. He also wets his pants sometimes,
so he shouldn't have too much.'
--Sarah, 7 years old

'My Dad loves beer. The more he drinks, the better he dances.
One time he danced right into the pool.'
--Lilly, 7 years old

'I don't like beer very much. Every time Dad drinks it, he burns the
sausages on the barbecue and they taste disgusting.'
--Ethan, 7 years old

'I give Dad's beer to the dog and he goes to sleep.'
--Shirley, 7 years old


'My Mom drinks beer and she says silly things and picks on my father.
Whenever she drinks beer she yells at Dad and tells him to go bury his bone
down the street,but that doesn't make any sense.'

Subject: The New Ford For 2012

Renault and Ford have joined forces to create the perfect small car for

Mixing the Renault 'Clio' and the Ford 'Taurus' they have designed the
'Cl*taurus'. It comes in pink, and the average male car thief won't be able
to find it - let alone turn it on - even if someone tells him where it is
and how to do it.

Rumour has it though, that it leaks transmission fluid once a month, and
can be a real bitch to start in the morning! Some have reported that on
cold winter mornings, when you really need it, you can't get it to turn

New models are initially fun to own, but very costly to maintain, and
horribly expensive to get rid of. Used models may initially appear to have
curb appeal and a low price, but eventually have an increased appetite for
fuel, and the curb weight typically increases with age. Manufacturers are
baffled as to how the size of the trunk increases, but say that the paint
may just make it LOOK bigger.

This model is not expected to reach collector status. Most owners find it
is best to lease one, and replace it each year.

So she went to check it out. She went to the Western Wall and there he was,
walking slowly up to the holy site.

She watched him pray and after about 45 minutes, when he turned to leave,

"Pardon me, sir, I'm Rebecca Smith from CNN. What's your name?

"Morris Feinberg," he replied.

"Sir, how long have you been coming to the Western Wall and praying?"

"For about 60 years."

"60 years! That's amazing! What do you pray for?"

"I pray for peace between the Christians, Jews and the Muslims."

"I pray for all the wars and all the hatred to stop."

"I pray for all our children to grow up safely as responsible adults and to
love their fellow man."

"I pray that politicians tell us the truth and put the interests of the
people ahead of their own interests."

Two beggars are sitting side by side on a street in  Rome,  Italy

One has a Cross in front of him; the other one is holding the Star of David

Many people go by, look at both beggars, but only put money into the hat of
the beggar sitting behind the Cross.

The Pope comes by.  He stops to watch the throngs of people giving money to
the beggar who holds the Cross while none give to the beggar holding the
Star of David.

Finally, the Pope approaches the beggar with the Star of David and says,

"My poor fellow, don't you understand? This is a Catholic country; this
city is the seat of Catholicism.

People aren't going to give you money if you sit there with a Star of David
in  front of you, especially when you're sitting beside a beggar who is
holding a Cross. In fact, they would probably give more money to him just
out of spite."

The beggar with the Star of David listened to the Pope, smiled, and turned

From: Sack

Snakes also known as Garter Snakes (Thamnophissirtalis) can be dangerous.
Yes, grass snakes, not rattlesnakes.  Here's why.

A couple in Sweetwater, Texas, had a lot of potted plants.  During a recent
cold spell, the wife was bringing a lot of them indoors to protect them
from a possible freeze.

It turned out that a little green garden grass snake was hidden in one of
the plants.  When it had warmed up, it slithered out and the wife saw it go
under the sofa.

She let out a very loud scream.

The husband (who was taking a shower) ran out into the living room naked to
see what the problem was.  She told him there was a snake under the sofa.

He got down on the floor on his hands and knees to look for it.  About that
time the family dog came and cold-nosed him on the behind.  He thought the
snake had bitten him, so he screamed and fell over on the floor.

His wife thought he had had a heart attack, so she covered him up, told him
to lie still and called an ambulance.

The attendants rushed in, would not listen to his protests, loaded him on
the stretcher, and started carrying him out.

About that time, the snake came out from under the sofa and the Emergency
Medical Technician saw it and dropped his end of the stretcher.  That's
when the man broke his leg and why he is still in the hospital.

The wife still had the problem of the snake in the house, so she called on
a neighbor who volunteered to capture the snake.  He armed himself with a
rolled-up newspaper and began poking under the couch.  Soon he decided it
was gone and told the woman, who sat down on the sofa in relief.

But while relaxing, her hand dangled in between the cushions, where she
felt the snake wriggling around.  She screamed and fainted, the snake
rushed back under the sofa.

The neighbor man, seeing her lying there passed out, tried to use CPR to
revive her.

The neighbor's wife, who had just returned from shopping at the grocery
store, saw her husband's mouth on the woman's mouth and slammed her husband
in the back of the head with a bag of canned goods, knocking him out and
cutting his scalp to a point where it needed stitches.

The noise woke the woman from her dead faint and she saw her neighbor lying
on the floor with his wife bending over him, so she assumed that the snake
had bitten him.  She went to the kitchen and got a small bottle of whiskey,
and began pouring it down the man's throat.

By now, the police had arrived.
Breathe here...

They saw the unconscious man, smelled the whiskey and assumed that a
drunken fight had occurred.  They were about to arrest them all, when the
women tried to explain how it all happened over a little garden snake!

The police called an ambulance, which took away the neighbor and his
sobbing wife.

Now, the little snake again crawled out from under the sofa and one of the
policemen drew his gun and fired at it.  He missed the snake and hit the
leg of the end table.  The table fell over, the lamp on it shattered and,
as the bulb broke, it started a fire in the drapes.

The other policeman tried to beat out the flames, and fell through the
window into the yard on top of the family dog who, startled, jumped out and
raced into the street, where an oncoming car swerved to avoid it and
smashed into the parked police car.

Meanwhile, neighbors saw the burning drapes and called in the fire
department.  The firemen had started raising the fire ladder when they were
halfway down the street.  The rising ladder tore out the overhead wires,
put out the power, and disconnected the telephones in a ten-square city
block area (but they did get the house fire out).

Time passed!  Both men were discharged from the hospital, the house was
repaired, the dog came home, the police acquired a new car and all was
right with their world.

A while later they were watching TV and the weatherman announced a cold
snap for that night.  The wife asked her husband if he thought they should
bring in their plants for the night.

And that's when he shot her.

Subject: FW: A Summary of 2011 Emails I have received

I want to thank all of you for your educational e-mails in 2011. I am
totally screwed up now and have little chance of recovery.

I no longer open a bathroom door without using a paper towel, or have the
waitress put lemon slices in my ice water without worrying about the
bacteria on the lemon peel.

I can't use the remote in a hotel room because I don't know what the last
person was doing while flipping through the adult movie channels.

I can't sit down on the hotel bedspread because I can only imagine what has
happened on it since it was last washed.

I have trouble shaking hands with someone who has been driving because the
number one pastime while driving alone is picking one's nose.

Eating a little snack sends me on a guilt trip because I can only imagine
how many gallons of trans fats I have consumed over the year.

I can't touch any woman's handbag for fear she has placed it on the floor
of a public restroom.

I MUST SEND MY SPECIAL THANKS to whoever sent me the one about rat poop in
the glue on envelopes because I now have to use a wet sponge with every
envelope that needs sealing.

ALSO, now I have to scrub the top of every can I open for the same reason.

I no longer have any savings because I gave it to a sick girl (Penny Brown)
who is about to die for the 1,387,258th time.

I no longer have any money, but that will change once I receive the $15,000
that Bill Gates/Microsoft and AOL are sending me for participating in their
special e-mail program.

I no longer worry about my soul because I have 363,214 angels looking out
for me, and St. Theresa's Novena has granted my every wish.

I can't have a drink in a bar because I'll wake up in a bathtub full of ice
with my kidneys gone.

I can't eat at KFC because their chickens are actually horrible mutant
freaks with no eyes, feet or feathers.

I can't use cancer-causing deodorants even though I smell like a water
buffalo on a hot day.

THANKS TO YOU I have learned that my prayers only get answered if I forward
an e-mail to seven of my friends and make a wish within five minutes.

BECAUSE OF YOUR CONCERN, I no longer drink Coca Cola because it can remove
toilet stains.

I no longer buy petrol without taking someone along to watch the car so a
serial killer doesn't crawl in my back seat when I'm filling up.

I no longer use Cling Wrap in the microwave because it causes seven
different types of cancer.

AND THANKS FOR LETTING ME KNOW I can't boil a cup of water in the microwave
anymore because it will blow up in my face. Disfiguring me for life.

I no longer go to the movies because I could be pr*cked with a needle
infected with AIDS when I sit down.

I no longer go to shopping malls because someone will drug me with a
perfume sample and rob me.

And I no longer answer the phone because someone will ask me to dial a
number for which I will get a phone bill with calls to Jamaica , Uganda ,
Singapore , and Uzbekistan ..

THANKS TO YOU I can't use anyone's toilet but mine because a big black
snake could be lurking under the seat and cause me instant death when it
bites my butt.

AND THANKS TO YOUR GREAT ADVICE I can't ever pick up $2.00 coin dropped in
the parking lot because it probably was placed there by a s*x molester
waiting to grab me as I bend over.

I can't do any gardening because I'm afraid I'll get bitten by the Violin
Spider and my hand will fall off.

If you don't send this e-mail to at least 144,000 people in the next 7
minutes, a large dove with diarrhea will land on your head at 5:00 p.m.
tomorrow afternoon, and the fleas from 120 camels will infest your back,
causing you to grow a hairy hump. I know this will occur because it
actually happened to a friend of my next door neighbor's ex-mother-in-law's
second husband's cousin's best friend's beautician . .

Oh, by the way.....

I now keep my toothbrush in the living room, because I was told by e-mail
that water splashes over 6 ft. out of the toilet.

South Australia to Julia Gillard and Tony Abbott:

To  Julia Gillard (Prime Minister) & Tony Abbott (Leader of the Opposition)

You BOTH Worry me ! ( In fact both of your Political parties worry the hell
out of me !!!)

Over the last three years, I find myself becoming more and more fearful of
the pair of you, and between you, you are turning this country into a place
that I no longer feel at home in, or feel a part of! I watch you in
parliament, and no, not just the two of you, but every politician that I
see, stand up in parliament sneering at each other, and acting like
children !!! (..and if you were my children, I would be ashamed of you all
... What an example to set!)

Although you would like us all to believe that you are putting the needs of
this country at the forefront, NEITHER of you are doing that,
you seem more interested in "one-up-manship ", in scoring off each other, 
& denigrating each other, to the detriment of this country & its people !!!

It seems to be all about YOU as individuals, and not about what you can DO
for this country !
It is fast becoming a place that I do not recognize, as the place I always
thought, was the best place in the world to be !!!

But no longer !!!

You are not listening to the people of this country !!!
And here in South Australia , your  counterparts are afflicted with the
same disease - is it endemic in all politicians ?

I am watching the deterioration of living standards in this country,
(and according to you, on a world stage we are doing better than most
countries ... REALLY ???) ... And yet the gap is widening between the
"haves"  and the "have-nots" .  I see our homeless on the streets, our
hospitals under-funded,  and understaffed, our health system is an absolute
mess and a disgrace ... And yet I see multi-millions of dollars being sent
off shore, in aid to other countries, before attending to this country's
needs !

I see the "selling off of the farm", in large amounts, to foreign
interests, (In Every State ) including water rights to foreign interests
too .... And WHY...?

Especially when you go to great lengths to tell us that water is a finite
resource, & supposedly,  we must ALL be careful with how we use it, so that
we ensure we have it for the future ?

Foreign interests "Fracking"  for coal seam gas, and riding rough shod over
farmers' rights to their own land, AND USING QUESTIONABLE
CHEMICALS. (You don't even KNOW what chemicals they use),  and possibly
causing damage to the water table  in the process !!!
And those foreign interests I believe, do NOT have to pay anything in
royalties back to this country, for the first five years of their tenure 

A Carbon Tax,( which you KNOW  is just another tax with a "Starting
Point dollar value")  which will make NO appreciable difference, to carbon
emissions, AT ALL!

A tax,  which in spite of all your arguments FOR it, you are doing alone,
when other major countries will NOT & DO NOT embrace it, or believe in it 

All that it will do for this country is put working families and small
businesses behind the eight ball, ....what planet are you on, if you think
that your few hundred dollars a year,  will make even a scr*p of difference
to the effect of the carbon tax on people ?Blind
Freddy can see the holes in that argument !!! Do you really think we are 
that dumb ???

The CONVOY OF NO CONFIDENCE was real !!! ...and I haven't spoken to even
ONE person, who would not have liked to be there if they could,
but the tyranny of distance and /or work was the only thing that kept them
away,  ( myself included ), ... and you KNOW that only a part of the convoy
was actually allowed to be in front of Parliament house and
ON VIEW .. the rest were streets away, unreported by the media !

For Mr Albanese to stand up in parliament,  and call it "THE CONVOY
OF NO CONSEQUENCE ", in his sneering tone, shows just how out of touch with
the people of Australia , you really are !!!!  WE WOULD HAVE ALL

DEFENCE ....... Because Americans are our Allies, and we support them in
Wars, ......... Korea , Vietnam , Iraq , Afghanistan , .... and you have
sent our soldiers to those places, and our soldiers fought for you, and for
Australia ....... some coming home with terrible physical injuries, and
some with devastating Mental Injuries as well ..... BUT

Veteran's Indexation to CPI only is a disgrace .. and is something
YOUR Labor party Julia, used as an election sweetener, to get the
Veteran's Vote ... BUT YOU LIED (Again) ! You never had any intention of
honouring your election promise to them ... and it WILL come back to bite
you at the next election !!!! (And Tony, Liberals were NO
BETTER, Howard had more than 10 years to "fix it " and didn't !)

Veterans are not alone, they have families, friends and supporters,
who are heartily sick of the deception your party perpetrated on them

THEY are your obligation, first and foremost .... and it is not your first
obligation to give aid to every man and his dog overseas first !!!  Look
after your own FIRST !!!! Is this what you call SALUTING

Have you any idea , how sickening it is for our Vets to see you both,
( Labor or Liberal ) turn up to the funerals of our current young vets for
a photo opportunity, to  be seen to be "caring " in the public eye, but
only to turn your backs on them all,  when they need you ???
(Just ask Breanna Till  an Afghanistan Soldier's  wife, how CARING this
government is !!!)

And in light of what you DON'T do  for our Vets .......Let's talk about
Multiculturalism .....People have come here from other countries, for a
better life, for more years than I have been alive  (
I am 65 years old !) ... my own family migrated here in 1883, from
Germany , and did find a better life ...

Pre & Post war immigrants have came for a better life, and settled in and
became wonderful contributors to this country, as did those who came here
after the Vietnam War,  .. all have contributed to the rich diversity of
this country, and some descendants have even fought FOR this country, and
they have become Australians and were glad to be ...and they had NO
handouts from our Government either, ...they worked hard for everything!

I have never before had a problem with all, or any, race of immigrants 
coming here ...

.......However , I DO NOW !!!

Please tell me why we have  areas  like  Lakemba, where police do
NOT,  & will NOT go, for fear of their life ?
Please tell me why we can no longer have religion in schools, for fear of
"OFFENDING" someone ? (The latest little gem is that they are not having,
or being funded, for  "chaplains " any more , but
"Counsellors "?)
Please tell me why religious Christmas observances are no longer allowed in
some schools for fear of OFFENDING someone ?
Please tell me HOW Christmas decorations in some stores might OFFEND
someone ?
Please tell me why we have to have segregated days in some swimming
centres, for fear of "OFFENDING" someone ?
Please tell me why we have some RADICAL clerics demanding Sharia Law in
this country ... when if we were in THEIR country, this would NEVER be
allowed ?
Please tell me why our laws need to be changed, so as not to OFFEND someone
Please tell me why we are fast becoming a MINORITY voice, in our own
country, because of POLITICAL CORRECTNESS ?
Please tell me WHY Australians cannot legally wear a face covering bike
helmet into a bank ..and yet it is ok to wear a Burqa which covers the
whole face ?
And please tell me WHY, when those people who want asylum here, can wreck
our detention centres, as in Villawood , and STILL be accepted here ?

SO , in light of the above, WILL BOTH OF YOU .....Please tell me WHY,
when some of our Vietnam Veterans FINALLY received (in the last 6 months)
the recognition that they should have had after the Vietnam
War, (and which they received from the USA & South Vietnam,  during and
immediately after the Vietnam War), that the families of those
Veterans,  were refused assistance by this Government, to attend that award
ceremony, and yet this Government ...flew , accommodated , and even took on
bus tours , to the the families of asylum seekers, after the funerals of
those who were killed in the boat which sunk off
Christmas Island ?

What does that say,  about just who are this government's priorities ?

The Australian people that I speak to have genuine concerns about becoming
a second class minority in our own country, and the reasons for it,  are
some of the above,  ..... Are you so blind that you cannot see this ?

And no , I am NOT racist !!!...(if I did not like Catholics or
Protestants would I be considered racist ?) Of course not !

Why is it, that if we object to what is happening in our country ...
we are immediately labelled RACIST, in an attempt to shut us up ?

We are fighting Radical Muslims, in Afghanistan & Iraq , are we not ?I hear
you say, yes but the Muslims we have here are "Not like that " ... well how
would we know ? we hear ANY of them coming out & speaking AGAINST
radicals ??  I haven't ...have you ???

Islam is not compatible with ANY of the values that we hold here in
Australia ! ....Are not the experiences of Britain , France , and the
Netherlands an example of that?   Why do you think it would be any
different here ?  We even have an Australian born "radical ", whose message
is that Australia WILL become a Muslim country, under Sharia
Law, & that we had "better get used to it ".

Will both of you grow some "Balls ", and start sticking up for this country
and its people ???

We are the people who put you where you are, and PAY you to look after our
interests ! ... And you are NOT doing that, by any stretch of the
imagination !!!

I would appreciate an answer, from both of you, if only to convince me that
once again, I am not talking to a brick wall !!!!!

In case it has escaped both of you ...I would like to remind you that, in
Australia the Government .. is FOR THE PEOPLE, OF THE PEOPLE,
never forget that......because you sure have up till now !!!

High Birth Rate

A little rural town had one of the highest birth rates in the country and
this phenomenon attracted the attention of the sociologists at the state

They wrote a grant proposal; got a huge chunk of money; moved to town; set
up their computers; got squared away; and began designing their
questionnaires and such.

While the staff was busy getting ready for their big research effort, the
project director decided to go to the local Café for a cup of coffee.

He sat down at a table, ordered his coffee, and while he was drinking it,
he told the owner what his purpose was in town,

then asked him if he had any idea why the birth rate was so high.

"Sure," said the café owner. "Every morning the six o'clock train comes
through here and blows for the crossing. It wakes everybody up, and, well,

Subject:  Male Date Drug

(be sure to watch the short video at the end)

Police are warning all men who frequent clubs, parties & local pubs to be
alert and stay cautious when offered a drink by any woman.

Many females use a date-drug on the market called 'Beer '.

The drug is found in liquid form and is available anywhere. It comes in
bottles, cans, or from taps and in large kegs.

Beer is used by female s*xual predators at parties and bars to persuade
their male victims to go home and sleep with them

A woman needs only to get a guy to consume a few units of Beer and then
simply ask him home for no-strings-attached s*x.

Men are rendered helpless against this approach.  After several Beers , men
will often succ*mb to the desires to sleep with horrific looking women to
whom they would never normally be attracted.

After drinking Beer , men often awaken with only hazy memories of exactly
what happened to them the night before, often with just a vague feeling
'something bad' occurred.

At other times these unfortunate men are swindled out of their life's
savings, in a familiar scam known as 'a relationship'.  In extreme cases,
the female may even be shrewd enough to entrap the unsuspecting male into a
longer-term form of servitude and punishment referred to as'marriage'.

Men are much more susceptible to this scam after Beer  is administered and
s*x is offered by the predatory females.

If you fall victim to this 'Beer ' scam and the women administering it,
there are male support groups where you can discuss the details of your
shocking encounter with similarly victimized men.

For the support group nearest you, just look up 'Bowls Clubs' in the phone

Please forward this warning to every male you know.

 This is 100% correct...

  What  died at Auschwitz ?


    The following is a copy of an article written by Spanish writer

    Sebastian Vilar Rodrigez and published in a Spanish newspaper on

    Jan. 15 2008. It doesn't take much imagination to extrapolate the

    message to the rest of Europe - and possibly to the rest of the world.


    Date: Tue. 15 January 2008  14:30


    By Sebastian Vilar  Rodrigez

    I walked down the street in Barcelona, and suddenly discovered a

    terrible truth - Europe died in Auschwitz ... We killed six million

    Jews and replaced them with 20 million Muslims. In Auschwitz we

    burned a culture, thought, creativity, talent. We destroyed the

    chosen people, truly chosen, because they produced great and

    wonderful people who changed the world.

    The contribution of this people is felt in all areas of life:

    science, art, international trade, and above all, as the conscience

    of the world. These are the people we burned.

    And under the pretense of tolerance, and because we wanted to prove

    to ourselves that we were cured of the disease of racism, we opened

    our gates to 20 million Muslims, who brought us stupidity and

    ignorance, religious extremism and lack of tolerance, crime and

    poverty, due to an unwillingness to work and support their families

    with pride.

    They have blown up our trains and turned our beautiful Spanish

    cities into the third world, drowning in filth and crime.

    Shut up in the apartments they receive free from the government,

    they plan the murder and destruction of their naive hosts.

    And thus, in our misery, we have exchanged culture for fanatical

    hatred, creative skill for destructive skill, intelligence for

    backwardness and superstition.

    We have exchanged the pursuit of peace of the Jews of Europe and

    their talent for a better future for their children, their

    determined clinging to life because life is holy, for those who

    pursue death, for people consumed by the desire for death for

    themselves and others, for our children and theirs.

    What a terrible mistake was made by miserable Europe..

    A lot of Americans have become so insulated from reality that they

    imagine America can suffer defeat without any inconvenience to


    Recently, the UK debated whether to remove The Holocaust from its

    school curriculum because it 'offends' the Muslim population which

    claims it never occurred. It is not removed as yet. However, this is

    a frightening portent of the fear that is gripping the world and how

    easily each country is giving in to it.

    It is now more than 60 years after the Second World War in Europe

    This e-mail is being sent as a memorial chain, in memory of the 6

    million Jews, 20 million Russians, 10 million Christians, and 1,900

    Catholic priests who were 'murdered, raped, burned, starved, beaten,

    experimented on and humiliated.'   Now, more than ever, with Iran,

    among others, claiming the Holocaust to be 'a myth,' it is

    imperative to make sure the world never forgets.

    This e-mail is intended to reach 400 million people. Be a link in

    the memorial chain and help distribute this around the world.

    How many years will it be before the attack on the World Trade Center
'NEVER HAPPENED' because it offends some Muslim in the United States?

Subject: Factoid

Manure... An interesting fact

Manure : In the 16th and 17th centuries, everything had to be transported
by ship and it was also before the invention of commercial fertilizers, so
large shipments of manure were quite common.It was shipped dry, because in
dry form it weighed a lot less than when wet, but once water (at sea) hit
it, not only did it become heavier, but the process of fermentation began
again, of which a by product is methane gas of course.. As the stuff was
stored below decks in bundles you can see what could (and did) happen.
Methane began to build up below decks and the first time someone came below
at night with a lantern, BOOM!Several ships were destroyed in this manner
before it was determined just what was happening

After that, the bundles of manure were always stamped with the instruction
' Stow high in transit ' on them, which meant for the sailors to stow it
high enough off the lower decks so that any water that came into the hold
would not touch this volatile cargo and start the production of methane.

Thus evolved the term ' S.H.I.T ' , (Stow High In Transit) which has come
down through the centuries and is in use to this very day.

You probably did not know the true history of this word.

Neither did I.

I had always thought it was a golf term.

True Life Story

This has to be the weirdest thing that ever floated by me on the Snake
River .  They were stuck together in death lock, each wanting to kill the
other first.  My guess is that the falcon snatched up the tasty snake, and
it somehow got its tail around the falcon's neck, strangling it in midair
causing both of them to crash into the river.  They are both alive and
considering.  I think a few more minutes and the snake would have won.  The
tail was actually tied in a  knot around the neck, and getting tighter by
the second.  I got the snake untied, and well, as you can see, they both
made it.  This is another one of those stories you tell, and are always
acknowledged with "yeah, right!"  Well, here's the proof.  Neither of them
bit me or scratched me; the snake didn't want to stop biting the falcon's
leg, and only let go after I had untied everything else.  I got the water
out of the falcon's lungs with birdie inversion technique, and stayed with
him until he was almost dried off in the sun, and flying a little.  Ball of
snake and falcon, that is the weirdest thing I have pulled out of the water
so far, it beats the wagon wheel!

The street is famous for a small section near the top of Russian Hill,
between Hyde and Leavenworth streets. Here the hill is so steep (27°) that
it would be too dangerous for most vehicles, so between 1922 and 1923 this
part of Lombard Street was transformed into a switchback with eight sharp
turns. Cars can only drive downhill, east-bound towards Leavenworth Street.
 Click here

The crooked section of the street, which is about 1/4 mile (400 m) long, is
reserved for one-way traffic traveling east (downhill) and is paved with
red bricks. The speed limit in this section is 5 miles per hour (8.0 km/h).

suburb of North East Valley, 3.5 kilometres (2.2 mi) northeast of Dunedin's
city centre.
 Click here

A short straight street a little under 350 metres (1,150 ft) long, Baldwin
Street runs east from the valley of the Lindsay Creek up the side of Signal
Hill towards Opoho, rising from 30 m (98 ft) above sea level at its
junction with North Road to 100 m (330 ft) above sea level at the top, an
average slope of slightly more than 1:5. Its lower reaches are only
moderately steep, and the surface is asphalt, but the upper reaches of this
cul-de-sac are far steeper, and surfaced in concrete (200 m (660 ft) long),
for ease of maintenance and for safety in Dunedin's frosty winters. At its
maximum, the slope of Baldwin Street is about 1:2.86 (19° or 35%) – that
is, for every
2.86 metres travelled horizontally, the elevation rises by 1 metre.

Buenos Aires, Argentina, features the widest avenue in the world. At over
300 feet wide, 9 de Julio Avenue occupies a gap of an entire block in the
city grid, hence its incredible width. Crossing the avenue at street level
often requires a few minutes, as all intersections have traffic lights.
Under normal walking speed, it takes pedestrians normally two to three

Police work must be entertaining as well as dangerous.

Recently, a female police officer arrested Patrick Lawrence, 22 year old
white male, fornicating with a pumpkin in the middle of the night.

The next day, at the Gwinnett County (GA) courthouse, Lawrence was charged
with lewd and lascivious behavior, public indecency and public

The suspect explained that as he was passing a pumpkin patch on his way
home from a drinking session when he decided to stop, 'You know how a
pumpkin is soft and squishy inside, and there was no one around for miles
or at least I thought there wasn't anyone around' he stated.

Lawrence went on to say that he pulled over to the side of the road, picked
out a pumpkin that he felt was appropriate to his purpose, cut a hole in
it, and proceeded to satisfy his pressing need. 'Guess I was really into
it, you know?' he commented with evident embarrassment.

In the process of doing the deed, Lawrence failed to notice an approaching
police car and was unaware of his audience until Officer Brenda Taylor
approached him.

'It was an unusual situation, that's for sure,' said Officer Taylor. 'I
walked up to Lawrence and he's just banging away at this pumpkin.'

Officer Taylor went on to describe what happened when she approached
Lawrence ..

'I said: 'Excuse me sir, but do you realize that you're having s*x with a

He froze and was clearly very surprised that I was there, and then he
looked me straight in the face and said:

'A pumpkin? Sh*t ... is it midnight already?'

The Washington Post wrote an article describing this as 'Best come-back
line ever.'
