Excellent Historical Photos Of The Hindenburg Disaster:
Over the years there have been photos of the Hindenburg but not like these.
These photographs are truly amazing. Look at each one carefully. The aerial
shots are near perfect.
The dock side service. The fellow in front wearing the light uniform has
the ultimate look and composure of a committed Nazi. And...this is 1937. We
were all suffering from a critical case of intellectual torpor.
Be sure to click on the link in photo 22 to see the 'newsreel' film of the
crash. There is a movie news short .
A chap goes for an interview at a Durex factory in the Quality Control
department. He does well at the interview, and management arrange for the
Foreman to show him around the factory.
"What exactly will my job be?" he enquires of the Foreman.
"Well" replied the Foreman "You have to check one in every hundred", and
proceeds to remove one condom from the production line, stretches it, holds
it up to the light, and calls one of the secretaries over.
The girl lifts up her skirt, drops her knickers and bends over. The Foreman
stretches the condom over his todger, and gives her a good rogering.
Afterwards, he holds the condom up to the light, again to confirm no holes.
"Easy as that" says the Foreman
"When do I start" replied the interviewee.
"8.00 a.m. sharp Monday morning" said the Foreman.
All weekend the chap was in a mood of keen anticipation, and at last Monday
morning came. He was standing outside the factory gates at 7.30, and at 8
o'clock got straight down to work checking the condoms as they moved along
the production line.
He eventually counted 100, picked out number 101, and called over to one of
One of the girls walked straight over to him, undid his trousers, and put
the condom on his erect manhood She then began to vigorously masturbate
He was quite disappointed, and told the secretary that this was not what he
expected at all.
"No" she replied "but you have to work a week in hand first"
Great site for updates on your Land Rover:
Two Blokes and the Barber:
Tim Matheson, the First Bloke and Tony Abbott somehow ended up at the
same barber shop. As they sat there, each being worked on by a different
barber, not a word was spoken.
The barbers were both afraid to start a conversation, for fear it would
turn to politics.
As the barbers finished their shaves, the one who had Tim in his
chair reached for the aftershave. Tim was quick to stop him jokingly
"No thanks, Julia will smell that and think I've been in a brothel."
The second barber turned to Abbott and said, "How about you" Mr. Abbott?"
Abbott replied, "Go ahead, my wife doesn't know what the inside of a
brothel smells like".
Kev's a Saint:
Last Sat*rday afternoon, in Canberra, an aide to Kevin Rudd visited the
Bishop of the Catholic cathedral in Canberra.
He told the Cardinal that Kevin would be attending the next day's Mass, and
he asked if the Cardinal would kindly point him out to the congregation and
say a few words that would include calling Kevin a saint.
The Cardinal replied, "No. I don't really like the man, and there are
issues of conflict with the Catholic Church over certain of his views."
Rudd's aide then said, "Look, I'll write a cheque here and now for a
donation of $100,000 to your church if you'll just tell the congregation
you see Kevin as a saint."
The Cardinal thought about it and said, "Well, the church can use the
so I'll work your request into tomorrow's sermon."
As the aide promised, Kevin Rudd appeared for the Sunday worship and seated
himself prominently at the forward left side of the centre aisle.
As promised, at the start of his sermon, the Cardinal pointed out that Mr
Rudd was present.
The Cardinal went on to explain to the congregation, "While Mr Rudd's
presence is probably an honour to some, the man is not numbered among my
personal favourite personages
Some of his most egregious views are contrary to tenets of the Church, and
he tends to flip-flop on many other issues.
Kevin Rudd is a petty, self-absorbed hypocrite, a thumb sucker, and a
He is also a serial liar, a cheat, and a thief.
I must say, Kevin Rudd is the worst example of a Christian I have ever
He married for money and is using his wealth to lie to the Australian
He also has a reputation for shirking his representative obligations both
Canberra, in Queensland and overseas ... The man is simply not to be
The Cardinal concluded, "But, when compared with Prime Minister Gillard,
Kevin Rudd is a saint."

Senior Citizen versus the Bank:
This what the banks have become!
Not only for Senior Citizens only
Shown below, is an actual letter that was sent to a bank by an 86 year old
woman. You, fortunately,
still have a ways to go before you can claim that status.....
The bank manager thought it amusing enough to have it published in the
I am writing to thank you for bouncing my cheque with which I endeavoured
to pay my plumber last month.
By my calculations, three nanoseconds must have elapsed between his
presenting the cheque and the arrival in my account of the funds needed to
I refer, of course, to the automatic monthly deposit of my entire pension,
an arrangement which, I admit, has been in place for only eight years.
You are to be commended for seizing that brief window of opportunity, and
also for debiting my account £35 by way of penalty for the inconvenience
caused to your bank.
My thankfulness springs from the manner in which this incident has caused
me to rethink my errant financial ways. I noticed that whereas I personally
answer your telephone calls and letters, --- when
I try to contact you, I am confronted by the impersonal, overcharging,
pre-recorded, faceless entity which your bank has become.
From now on, I, like you, choose only to deal with a flesh-and-blood
My mortgage and loan repayments will therefore and hereafter no longer be
automatic, but will arrive at your bank, by cheque, addressed personally
and confidentially to an employee at your bank whom you must nominate.
Be aware that it is an OFFENCE under the Postal Act for any other person to
open such an envelope.
Please find attached an Application Contact which I require your chosen
employee to complete.
I am sorry it runs to eight pages, but in order that I know as much about
him or her as your bank knows about me, there is no alternative.
Please note that all copies of his or her medical history must be
countersigned by a Notary Public figure, and the mandatory details of
his/her financial situation (income, debts, assets and liabilities) must be
accompanied by doc*mented proof.
In due course, at MY convenience, I will issue your employee with a PIN
number which he/she must quote in dealings with me.
I regret that it cannot be shorter than 28 digits but, again, I have
modelled it on the number of button presses required of me to access my
account balance on your phone bank service.
As they say, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
Let me level the playing field even further.
When you call me, press buttons as follows:
IMMEDIATELY AFTER DIALLING, PRESS THE STAR (*) BUTTON FOR ENGLISH

While this may, on occasion, involve a lengthy wait, uplifting music will
play for the duration of the call.
Regrettably, but again following your example, I must also levy an
establishment fee to cover the setting up of this new arrangement.

His wife was standing there at the bench watching him.
After along period of silence she finally speaks.
Honey, I've been thinking, now that we are married I think it's time you
quit hunting, shooting, hand loading, and fishing.
Maybe you should sell your guns, boat & airplane.
Tim gets this horrified look on his face.
She says, "Darling, what's wrong?"
There for a minute you were sounding like my ex-wife.”
"Ex wife!" she screams, "I didn't know you were married before!"

Ole..... A born salesman:
Ole, the smoothest-talking Swede in the Minnesota National Guard, got
called up to active duty.
Ole's first assignment was in a military induction center. Because he was
a good talker, they assigned him the duty of advising new recruits about
government benefits, especially the GI life insurance, to which they were
The officer in charge soon noticed that Ole was getting a 99% sign-up rate
for the more expensive supplemental form of GI insurance. This was
remarkable, because it cost these low-income recruits $30 per month for the
higher coverage, compared to what the government was already providing at
The officer decided he'd sit in the back of the room at the next briefing
and observe Ole's sales pitch.
Ole stood up before the latest group of inductees and said, "If yoo haf da
normal GI insurans an' yoo go to Afghanistan an' get yourself killed, da
governmen' pays yer beneficiary $20,000. If yoo take out da supplemental
insurans, vich cost yoo only t'irty dollars a mont, den da governmen' got
to pay yer beneficiary $200,000!"
"Now," Ole concluded, "Vich bunch yoo tink dey gonna sen' to Afghanistan

A golfer went to a public golf course. He approached the man behind the
counter in the pro shop and said, "I would like 18 holes of golf and a
The man behind the counter said, "The 18 holes of golf is no problem, but
all of our caddies are out on the course. What I will do for you is this:
We just received 8 brand new robot golf caddies. If you're willing to take
one with you out on the course and come back and tell me how well it works,
your round of golf will be on me today.
The golfer obviously accepted the man's offer. He approached the first tee,
looked at the fairway and said to himself, "I think my driver will do the
The robot caddie turned to the man and said, "No sir. Use your 3 wood. A
driver is far too much club for this hole."
Hesitantly, the golfer pulled out his 3 wood, made good contact with the
ball, and the ball landed about 10 feet to the right front of the hole on
The golfer, delighted, turned to the robot and thanked him for his
assistance. As the golfer pulled out his putter he said, "I think this
green is gonna break left to right."
The robot then again spoke up and said, "No sir. I do believe this green
will break right to left."
Thinking about the last time the robot corrected his prediction, he decided
again to listen to the machine. He made his putt and birdied the hole
thanks to the robot and his advice But his luck didn't end there. His
entire game was the best game he ever played, thanks to the assistance of
the new robot golf caddie.
Upon returning to the clubhouse, the man behind the counter asked, "How was
your game ?"
The golfer stated, "It was, by far, the BEST game I ever played. Thank you
very much for letting me take one of your robots. See you next week."
A week passed, and excited, the golfer returned to the pro shop. Upon
entering, he turned to the man behind the counter and said, "I would like
18 holes of golf and one of those robot golf caddies, please."
The gentleman from behind the counter turned to the man and said, "Well the
18 holes is no problem. However, we had to get rid of the robots. We had
too many complaints."
"COMPLAINTS? Who in the heck could've complained about those robots? They
The man sighed and said, "Well, it wasn't their performance. It was that
they were made of shiny silver metal, and the sun reflecting off them was
blinding to other golfers on the fairway."
The golfer said, "So then why didn't you just paint them black?"
The man nodded sadly and replied, "We did. Then four of 'em didn't show up

Lady: So 1 6 pack cost $10.00 and you have 3 packs a day which puts your

Lady: If in 1 year you spend $10,800 not accounting for inflation, the past

in a step-up interest savings account and after

Man : Do you drink?
Man: Where's your Ferrari then?

I LOVE THIS DRUGGIST:
Upon arriving home, a husband was met at
the door by his sobbing wife.
Tearfully she explained, "It's the druggist. He insulted me terribly this
morning on the phone.
I had to call multiple times before he
would even answer the phone."
Immediately, the husband drove downtown to
confront the druggist and demand an apology.
Before he could say more than a word or
two, the druggist told him, "Now,
just a minute, listen to my side of it. This morning the alarm failed to go
off, so I was late getting up.
I went without breakfast and hurried out to
the car, just to realize that I'd locked the house with both house and car
keys inside and had to break a window to get my keys.
"Then, driving a little too fast, I got a
speeding ticket. Later, when I was about three blocks from the store, I had
a flat tire."
"When I finally got to the store a bunch of
people were waiting for me to open up.
I got the store opened and started waiting
on these people, all the time the darn phone was ringing off the hook."
He continued, "Then I had to break a roll
of nickels against the cash register drawer to make change, and they
spilled all over the floor.
I had to get down on my hands and knees to
pick up the nickels and the phone was still ringing.
When I came up I cracked my head on the
open cash drawer, which made me stagger back against a showcase with a
bunch of perfume bottles on it.
Half of them hit the floor and broke."
"Meanwhile, the phone is still ringing with
no let up, and I finally got back to answer it. It was your wife.
She wanted to know how to use a rectal
And believe me, mister, as God is my
witness, all I did was tell her."
Now this is a wedding reception...:

Strange fruit tree:

Jabuticaba - The Tree WITH Fruits on its Trunk
No, this is not a belated April Fool's prank. They look as if they may have
been pinned there by an overenthusiastic gardener to impress the neighbors,
but the fruit of the Jabuticaba really does grow off the trunk of the tree.
Otherwise known as the Brazilian Grape Tree, this plant is native to South
America, notably Paraguay, Argentina and (obviously from its name) mostly
from Brazil. The fruit, a succulent looking purple color, can be plucked
and eaten straight from the tree.
It is also a popular ingredient in jellies and is also juiced to make a
refreshing summer drink. What is more, it can be fermented and made into
wine and strong liquor. After three days off the tree the fermentation
will begin, so sometimes, there is no choice; honestly.
If you want one of these in your garden, then you have to be patient. The
tree takes an age to grow, but once it reaches maturity it is worth it.
However, it has proven to be very adaptable and, although it prefers moist
and slightly acid soils, it will even grow well in an alkaline type soil.
The flowers themselves appear on the tree at most twice a year - naturally.
They look like some strange alien creature that has deposited itself on the
trunk and branches. The habit of flowers doing this makes them
Instead of growing new shoots, these plants flower direct from the woody
trunk or stem.
