Is S*x Work?
A U.S. Marine Colonel was about to start the morning briefing to his staff.
While waiting for the coffee machine to finish its brewing, the colonel
decided to pose a question to all assembled.

He explained that his wife had been a bit frisky the night before and he
failed to get his usual amount of sound sleep. He posed the question of
just how much of s*x was "work" and how much of it was "pleasure?" A Major
chimed in with 75-25% in favor of work .

A Captain said it was 50-50%. A lieutenant responded with 25-75% in favor
of pleasure , depending upon his state of inebriation at the time.

There being no consensus, the colonel turned to the PFC who was in charge
of making the coffee. What was HIS opinion?

Without any hesitation, the young PFC responded, "Sir, it has to be 100%

The colonel was surprised and, as you might guess, asked why.

"Well, sir, if there was any work involved, the officers would have me
doing it for them."

The room fell silent.

God Bless the enlisted man.


Matt decided to go skiing with his buddy, Dave. So they loaded up Matt's
minivan and headed north.

After driving for a few hours, they got caught in a terrible blizzard. So
they pulled into a nearby farm and asked the attractive lady who answered
the door if they could spend the night.

'I realize it's terrible weather out there and I have this huge house all
to myself, but I'm recently widowed,' she explained. 'I'm afraid the
neighbors will talk if I let you stay in my house.'

'Don't worry,' Matt said... 'We'll be happy to sleep in the barn. And if
the weather breaks, we'll be gone at first light.' The lady agreed, and the
two men found their way to the barn and settled in for the night.

Come morning, the weather had cleared, and they got on their way. They
enjoyed a great weekend of skiing.

But about nine months later, Matt got an unexpected letter from an
It took him a few minutes to figure it out, but he finally determined that
it was from the attorney of that attractive widow he had met on the ski

He dropped in on his friend Dave and asked, "Dave, do you remember that
good-looking widow from the farm we stayed at on our ski holiday up north
about 9 months ago?"

"Yes, I do." Said Dave.

"Did you, er, happen to get up in the middle of the night, go up to the
house and pay her a visit?"

"Well, um, yes!," Dave said, a little embarrassed about being found out, I
have to admit that I did.."

"And did you happen to give her my name instead of telling her your name?"

Dave's face turned beet red and he said, "Yeah, look, I'm sorry, buddy..
I'm afraid I did.' 'Why do you ask?"

"She just died and left me everything."

(And you thought the ending would be different, didn't you?... You know you keep that smile for the rest of the day)


Japanese Ingenuity -- Save your plastic
This is one of the most amazing break-throughs in technology I have ever seen!!!
Why aren't we doing this now?
A case of Japanese ingenuity and perseverance. What is more important would
be the marketing and very low cost to make it mandatory to have one of
these in every home.
The sound is all in Japanese. Just turn off the sound, read the subtitles
and watch. What a great discovery!

Subject: Eight thoughts to ponder.....

*Number 8 *
*Life is s*xually transmitted. *

*Number 7 *
*Good health is merely the slowest possible rate at which one can die. *

*Number 6 *
*Men have two emotions: Hungry and Horny. They can't tell them apart. *
*If you see a gleam in his eyes, make him a sandwich. *

*Number 5 *
*Give a person a fish and you feed them for a day. Teach a person to use *
*the Internet and they won't bother you for weeks, months, maybe years. *

*Number 4 *
*Health nuts are going to feel stupid someday, lying there dying just like
*the rest of us who paid no attention to the rules. *

*Number 3 *
*All of us could take a lesson from the weather. It pays no attention to
criticism. *

*Number 2 *
*In the 60's, people took acid to make the world weird. *
*Now the world is weird and people take Prozac to make it  normal. *

*And The Number 1 Thought *
*Life is like a jar of Jalapeno peppers--what you do today, *
*might burn your ar*e tomorrow. *

*- - and as someone recently said to me: *
*"Don't worry about old age--it doesn't last that long." *


Subject: Jet Black.....

*Walt Disney's new film called "Jet Black", the non-racist version of
"Snow White", has been put on hold.*
*All of the 7 dwarfs: Dealer, Stealer, Mugger, Forger, Drive By, Pimp,
and Wog have all refused to sing "Hi Ho" because they say it offends black
*They also say they have no intention of singing "It's Off to Work We
Go"  either.*

Several days ago as I left a meeting at a hotel; I desperately gave myself
a personal TSA pat down.

I was looking for my keys. They were not in my pockets.

A quick search in the meeting room revealed nothing.

Suddenly I realized I must have left them in the car.

Frantically, I headed for the parking lot.

My husband has scolded me many times for leaving the keys in the ignition.

My theory is the ignition is the best place not to lose them.

His theory is that the car will be stolen.

As I burst through the door, I came to a terrifying conclusion.

His theory was right.

The parking lot was empty.

I immediately called the police. I gave them my location,

confessed that I had left my keys in the car, and that it had been stolen.

Then I made the most difficult call of all, "Honey," I stammered;  ( I
always call him "honey" in times like these.)   "I left my keys in the car
and it's been stolen."

There was a period of silence. I thought the call had been dropped, but
then I heard his voice.

"Are you kidding' me", he barked, "I dropped you off"!!!

  Now it was my time to be silent. Embarrassed, I said, "Well, come and get

I met a beautiful young woman at a nightclub.  We were getting on very well
when she said she had something to show me.  She removed her wig and she

I have always wanted to know, so I asked her straight.  "Does your
condition make you bald in other places?"

She whispered in my ear, "There's only one way to find out."



A male patient is lying in bed in the hospital, wearing an oxygen mask over
his mouth and nose. A young student nurse appears and gives him a partial
sponge bath.

"Nurse,"' he mumbles from behind the mask, "are my testicles black?"

Embarrassed, the young nurse replies, "I don't know, Sir. I'm only here to
wash your upper body and feet."

He struggles to ask again, "Nurse, please check for me. Ar...e my testicles

Concerned that he might elevate his blood pressure and heart rate from
worrying about his testicles, she overcomes her embarrassment and pulls
back the covers. She raises his gown, holds his manhood in one hand and his
testicles gently in the other.

She looks very closely and says, "There's nothing wrong with them, Sir.
They look fine."

The man slowly pulls off his oxygen mask, smiles at her, and says very
slowly, "Thank you very much. That was wonderful. Now listen very, very

Are - my - test - results - back?"

Sitting behind a couple of nuns at a baseball game, with their habits
blocking the view, three men decided to badger the nuns in an effort to get
them to move.

In a very loud voice, the first guy said, "I think I'm going to move to
Utah; there are only 100 nuns living there."

The second guy spoke up and said, "I want to go to Montana; there are only
50 nuns living there."

The third guy said, "I want to go to Idaho; there are only 25 nuns living

voice said, "Why don't you go to Hell? There aren't any nuns living there!"



The middle-aged woman sought help from her doctor.  "All my husband does is
complain that I never want to have s*x with him.  And he's right too.  I
have no desire at all."

The doctor gave her a prescription and told her to return for a visit in
two weeks.

After the two weeks were up, she bounced smiling into his office.  "Those
pills were great Doc, I'm doin' it twice a morning and twice a night now."

"That's wonderful," said the doctor. "What does your husband say now?"

"How should I know about that needled*ck?" she replied. "I ain't been home

where do you keep the condoms."



An old doctor and his nurse were on the train, going to a Medical
Conference.  Opposite them was a man furiously scratching his elbow.

"I wonder what's the matter with him?" asked the nurse.

"He's a patient of mine and, in confidence, I can tell you that he suffers
badly from hemorrhoids," replied the doctor.

"Well, why he's scratching his elbow?" asked the puzzled nurse.

"Oh, he's a congressman, and he doesn't know his ass from his elbow."

  Subject: 10 Ghost Stories
  An interesting overview of the top 10 most mysterious and enigmatic ghost
stories in various vehicles. So, we read further stories that do appear on
the body shivers.

  1. Flight "401 Eastern Air Lines"
 Tenth December 1972 passenger jet crashed into the Everglades swamp
in Florida. In the accident killed 101 people, including the pilot and
flight engineer Bob Loft Don Repo.About the crash immediately crawled
terrible rumors. The surviving parts wrecked car dismantled for parts for
other aircraft, after which they began to observe the sides of the strange
phenomena: from time to time in the passenger seat appeared ghosts Repo and
Loft, and even engage in a conversation with the members of the crew. The
figures of the dead were incredibly realistic. And they appeared in those
places where they were inserted or used parts crashed plane.Once one of the
ghosts they suddenly appeared terrified to death and flight engineer
reported that he has spent the pre-flight check. A silhouette of the face
of Don Repo, three members of the crew warning of an impending fire during
the flight, once saw in a microwave oven (which, guess where pulled?).
After some time in the airplane engin
  e caught fire and the flight was canceled.Eastern Airlines has officially
declined to comment on the phenomenon. However, the ghostly guards became
something of a legend among employees of the airline. It is said that even
the vice-president once had a chance to meet with them.

 2. Black Volga
 No one knew who was behind the wheel. Some have argued that in the
salon were priests, others have noticed inside the nuns, while others swore
that he was sitting behind the wheel of the devil.
 Black Volga - is appearing out of nowhere with a white limousine
drives and curtains on the windows. According to rumors, mirrors turned
into a real horn. Car kidnap children and kill anyone who dared to approach
him (sometimes immediately, and sometimes the victim is dead even after 24
hours). No one knew why the Volga abducted children may have to sell them
to the Arabs, who needed to cure leukemia, or they were taken away by
authorities. The myth of the black Volga quickly sold to Russia, Belarus,
Ukraine, Poland and Mongolia. However, no convincing evidence for its
existence has been found. We add that these limos were the most expensive
cars in the Soviet Union. They drove to the main party leadership.

 3. Train "Silverpilen"
 In the capital of a peaceful, prosperous Sweden hiding a terrible
secret. Silver shining ghost train «Silverpilen» (Silver Arrow) travels
on the subway, occasionally stopping at different stations.
 Sometimes there is no one inside, sometimes it is full of ghostly
silhouettes of passengers. And if a "lucky" to sit on it, you can see the
station dead "Kimling" (it exists in reality, but long abandoned). After
that, probably more than you, no one will see it. In the best case - will
be able to get out of there in a couple of weeks, or even
years.Silverpilen-once really existed train. This is an experimental model
consisting of eight cars class C5. She was never allowed to go on the
conveyor belt, but occasionally used during peak hours. Unpainted, outlined
graffiti, silver train - an eerie sight. Although Silverpilen very rarely
appeared on the tracks, according to rumors, he still haunts workers in
abandoned subway tunnels.

  4. Ghost Bus London
 In 1934, the driver of the car suddenly veered off the road when
driving along Cambridge Gardens. It was a terrible death: car crashed into
a wall and exploded.
 No one has been able to explain what happened. However, many
witnesses to the accident have decided that it was a ghost bus. It is
rumored he was often seen in the period between thirty and ninety years of
the last century. It was a very realistic copy of the red double-decker bus
with a scheduled number 7. He always appeared exactly at 1:15 am, with a
roar trotting towards frightened drivers. Because of the darkness into the
cabin to make out who was behind the wheel, it was impossible. And when the
drivers of oncoming cars turned around, trying to avoid a collision, it
turned out that the bus was gone.

  5. "Pippo" - the plane ghost
 During World War II, Italy had not sweet: the Nazi leadership and
allies Nazis literally terrorized the population, while the Allied forces
considered it an enemy. However, in the north of the country, there was
something much bigger instill fear - the plane "Pippo". No one knew where
he came from, looked like the one who was at the helm, and most importantly
- to whom he belonged. It was said that each shot guns fighter who got in
the way. The aircraft will be recognized by the characteristic sound of its
engines (hence came the name) and appeared mostly at night.It is rumored
that in his deadly ar*enal which just was not: exploding pens, poisoned
candy and powerful bombs. Sometimes boredom Pippo opened fire on farmers.
And even though the story is more like an airplane on an invention,
historians believe that she was hiding something more.In fact, most likely
it was a squadron of British night fighters of the "De Havilland Mosquito."
The sound of their engines is very
   much like the one that attributed Pippo. Anyway, in memory of the people
he was a ghost, a kind of reminder of the horrors of the Second World War.

  6. Bouncing car
 They say when the car starts to move by itself - it is a bad omen.
Members of the same family from Cape Town have experienced it first hand,
waking up one night from a strong thunder.
 Jumping out into the street, they saw a car they mark "Reno"
literally jumping around the yard and only a massive fence failed to tame
his zeal. At first everyone thought that someone was trying to steal a car,
but most car thief was never found. There were no signs of penetration into
the yard, the car was locked and the windows are intact. Even the handbrake
was not raised.
 When police arrived, the officers did not believe a word of
witnesses, roaring, did not start jumping again until crashed into a tree
hibiscus. After an investigation by representatives of the company
"Renault" suggested that the failure was caused by a rusted cables starter.
But even in this case, without explanation were growling sounds wafting
underside hood of the car.

  7. Ghost Train of Abraham Lincoln
 This is perhaps one of the most famous and terrible "traffic ghosts"
in stories. They say that every year in the month of April, he toured the
180 American cities.
 If we look at history, we learn that this is a funeral train that
Abraham Lincoln went on their last journey. It is rumored that when it
passes, all clocks are stopped nearby. The president in the ghost train is
not visible - the coffin with his remains, covered with an American flag,
guarded by the spirits of soldiers in uniform. The train comes out of the
black, thick fog, behind which are dragged wagons. During his appearance,
the air becomes heavier and colder. Annual route follows the funeral
procession of a length of 2,700 kilometers, with the only difference being
that never reaches the final destination - the Springfield (Ill.).

  8. Damn car Franz Ferdinand
 Even before the outbreak of the First World War machine-made «Graf
& Stift» successfully sold, and among the company's customers were
well-known and rich.In one of these machines was shot and killed Archduke
Franz Ferdinand. His murder was the last straw in the increasing tension
between European countries and was the beginning of the First World War.
Everyone is familiar with the historical and political implications of the
murder, but not many people know about the strange story that is connected
with it.Over the next twelve years the car was replaced by Franz Ferdinand
fifteen owners and was the cause of the thirteen accidents. Austrian
general, for example, went mad and got in a mental hospital. Another driver
nine days after the purchase of auto shot down at a speed of two peasants
and drove into a tree (despite all efforts to avoid an accident). Another
owner committed suicide. But that's not all. President of Yugoslavia during
the vehicle ownership was a member o
  f the four accidents, one of which cost him his arm. Serbian farmer did
not even have to sit behind the wheel - the car overturned while being
towed and crushed him. The last owner of the most unlucky: the car suddenly
out of control when he went to a wedding with five of his friends. As the
legend goes, they all died in the crash. Then surfaced again in the 50's of
last century, but in the existence of the curse of the car nobody really
believed it. Most likely, we'll never know what was the cause of all these
deaths, as Today the car is broken in an Austrian museum.

 9. James Dean's Porsche Spyder
 James Dean was Heath Ledger of its time: a beautiful, talented and
promising actor, whose life was tragically cut short at the height of his
youth and fame. He was killed in a crash with his Porsche 550 Spyder, which
is affectionately called "little bastard." The car, as it soon turned out,
was cursed. The surviving components and spare parts purchased George
Barris. Rebuilt engine Porsche went racing Lotus and he soon gained a grim
reputation, becoming a member of multiple accidents, one of which ended
tragically.Adversity occurred not only on roads or race tracks: one car for
no reason caught fire in the garage. One day, he mysteriously disappeared
from a sealed car. And though all these stories about the cursed cars are
well known, most of them believe that they invented himself, George Barris.
According to rumors, he was personally interested in the death of Dean. But
even if this is true, there is one creepy nuance. Alec Guinness (who served
the role of Obi Wan Ken
  obi in "Star Wars") predicted the death of James. According to legend, he
asked Guinness what he thought about the engine of his car. The answer was:
"If you sit behind the wheel, you will die in the next week." Dean died
exactly seven days.

  10. Ghost of a German submarine
 Submarines have been a formidable weapon in the First World War. One
of these was a German U-boat class «UB III», the Flood 507 ships,
including the battleship «Britannia».However, this type of submarine was
dangerous not only for the enemy, but also for the crew. Even the process
of its creation was the sheer disaster: three workers suffocated from
diesel exhaust, and two crushed bar. During the test, one of the men fell
overboard and disappeared. And Launching, to put it mildly, not a success:
the bottom of the submarine quickly flooded with water due to rupture of
the ballast tanks. The crew of a few hours was almost at the bottom of the
ocean, while the compartments are filled with poisonous gases from the
damaged battery. And although all of them were eventually rescued, the
health of each of them suffered greatly as a result of which two died of
gas poisoning. Despite this, the submarine recognized suitable for
launching. During one of his first missions torpedo e
  xplosion killed eight crew members and officers. Soon, witnesses reported
that they saw a ghost on a submarine.Shortly after the incident, the
captain of the ship's head blown off by shrapnel. That night, a few sailors
saw the ghost of an officer guarding the headless body. This was the last
straw that broke the patience of the team, and they were asked to transfer
to another ship, but the leadership of the German Navy was unable to find a
replacement as long as the former coach did not agree to the ritual of
exorcism. Alas, it did not help: a few months later overtaken by an
American submarine U-65 and torpedoed it. However, the captain of an
American ship later said that he had not had a chance to open fire.
According to him, U-65 exploded herself.

Subject: A Beautiful story

One afternoon a lawyer was riding in his limousine when he saw two men
along the road-side eating grass.
Disturbed, he ordered his driver to stop and got out to investigate.
He asked one man, "Why are you eating grass?"
"We don't have any money for food," the poor man replied.
"We have to eat grass."

"Well, then, you can come with me to my house and I'll feed you, " the
lawyer said.
"But sir, I have a wife and two children with me. They are over there,
under that tree."

"Bring them along," the lawyer replied.

Turning to the other poor man he stated, "You may come with us, also."
The second man, in a pitiful voice, then said, "But sir, I also have a wife
and SIX children with me!"
"Bring them all as well," the lawyer answered.

They all entered the car, which was no easy task, even for a car as large
as the limousine was.
Once under way, one of the poor fellows turned to the lawyer and said,"Sir,
you are too kind."

"Thank you for taking all of us with you.

The lawyer replied, "Glad to do it.
You'll really love my place.
The grass is almost a foot high."

Come on really didn't think there was such a thing as a
heart-warming lawyer story...did you????

to her that my

  frigging  clue who their Dads are. They expect me to feed them, provide
them with

  takes to qualify.
My dogs get their first cheques next Friday.

1.     The future

The Iranian Ambassador to the UN had just finished giving a speech and
walked out into the lobby of the convention center where he was introduced
to a U.S. Marine General.

As they talked the Iranian said, "I have just one question about what I
have seen in America." The General said, "Well, anything I can do to help."

The Iranian whispered, "My son watches this show called Star Trek and in it
there is Kirk who is Canadian, Chekhov who is Russian, Scotty who is
Scottish, Uhura who is black, and Sulu who is Japanese, but there are NO

My son is very upset and doesn't understand why there aren't any Iranians,
Iraqis, Afghans, Egyptians, Palestinians, Saudis, Syrians, or Pakistanis on
Star Trek."

The General laughed, leaned toward the Iranian Ambassador and whispered in
his ear, "That's because it takes place in the future..."


  Subject: article from the Australian Newspaper

this would be an excellent job!!!!!

Laundry staff on $420k a year

LAUNDRY hands and cooks employed on offshore construction projects will
potentially earn more than $420,000 a year, according to employers who
claim the extraordinary rates will have a flow-on impact on mainland
resources projects.

New analysis by the Australian Mines and Metals Association finds the most
recent wage agreement registered for offshore construction workers contains
maximum annual pay packages for a four-week-on, two-week-off rostered
employee of $423,000 for a laundry hand; $445,000 for a cook; $450,000 for
a tradesperson; and $498,000 for a barge welder.

If the employee works a three-week-on, three-week-off roster for a year,
the AMMA said, the maximum remuneration was $317,734 for a laundry hand;
$334,408 for a cook; $337,484 for a tradesperson; and $373,701 for a barge

Steve Knott, the association's chief executive, said the pay rates were a
"worrying precedent", particularly for Queensland employers competing for a
dearth of skilled workers.

"There is a very real risk to resource employers. As offshore rates and
allowances flow across to the onshore construction sector, many projects
will face the risk of significant wage blowouts," Mr Knott said. "I think
most fair-minded people would start to think something is fundamentally
wrong when a barge welder earns more than the Prime Minister, whose salary
is $350,000.

"And Queensland's Chief Justice, Paul de Jersey, on $395,000, is only
earning slightly more than a ship's laundry hand or cook."

The Minister for Workplace Relations, Chris Evans, said last night the AMMA
raised concerns at high wage settlements on new projects by its members in
the offshore oil and gas sector last September.

"In today's specific examples, they acknowledge that these rates were
agreed to by the companies concerned," a spokesman for Senator Evans said.
"This sector has always paid rates well in excess of those applying in
other industries." The spokesman said the "current Fair Work framework
restricts the likelihood of any flow-on of offshore oil and gas agreements
to other sectors".

The pay rates cited by the association are from agreements at four major
offshore projects.

Many workers would not work on a project for an entire year, or be eligible
for all the allowances listed in the agreements.

But Mr Knott said the "enormous scale" of projects being contemplated in
Western Australia and Queensland would require construction periods, in
some cases, of 18 months to two years.

"Accordingly, these escalating wage levels will have a significant impact
on upfront project costs." He called on the Gillard Government and Fair
Work Australia to "not sit idly by and watch these damaging wage rates feed
wage inflation, and hinder job creation in other parts of the economy".

"These problems are created by irresponsible unions using the new workplace
laws to force employers to agree to unsustainable wage levels," he said.

     Federal Court Ruling from the Courier Mail, Australia

     A seven year old boy was at the centre of a courtroom drama yesterday
when he challenged a court ruling over who should have custody of him.

     The boy has a history of being beaten by his parents and the judge
initially awarded custody to his aunt, in keeping with the child custody
law and regulations requiring that family unity be maintained to the degree

     The boy surprised the court when he proclaimed that his aunt beat him
more than his parents and he adamantly refused to live with her. When the
judge suggested that he live with his grandparents, the boy cried out that
they also beat him.

     After considering the remainder of the immediate family and learning
that domestic violence was apparently a way of life among them, the judge
took the unprecedented step of allowing the boy to propose who should have
custody of him.

     After two recesses to check legal references and confer with child
welfare officials, the judge granted temporary custody to the New South
Wales State of Origin team, whom the boy firmly believes are not capable of
beating anyone.

The billionaire brothers who built the Ark in Hong Kong, claim it is the

attempted to give the giant boat an air of authenticity by placing 67 pairs
of animals at the entrance, just like the pairs of creatures saved from the
