Gussius @ Bluehaze

Thought for the week : Politicians should have a mute button.

Australia's federal Government have applied the principle of a mute button
when for example, it comes to
"on water matters" in the Northern Indian ocean, but apparently not the
Southern Indian ocean.

Malaysia airlines have misplaced a Boeing 777 and explained it as a classic
fight or flight response. When nothing goes right - go left. That's when
they hit the mute button.

A Blonde Cowgirl:

A blonde city girl named Sue marries a Colorado rancher.

One morning, on his way out to check on the cows, the rancher says to  Sue,
'The insemination man is coming over to impregnate one of our cows today,
so I drove a nail into the 2 by 4 just above where the cow's stall is in
the barn.  'Please show him where the cow is when he gets here, OK?"

The rancher leaves for the fields.

After a while, the artificial insemination man arrives  and knocks on the
front door.  "I came to inseminate the cow."¯ he said.

Sue takes him down to the barn.  They walk along the row of cows, and when 
Sue sees the nail, she tells him, 'This is the one right here.'

The man, assuming he is dealing with an air-head blonde, asks, 'Tell me,
lady, 'cause I'm dying to know.
How would YOU know that this is the right cow to be bred?'

'That's simple." she said. "By the nail that's over its stall,' she
explains very confidently.

Laughing rudely at her, the man says, 'And what, pray tell, is the nail
for?'

The blonde turns to walk away and says sweetly over her shoulder, 'I guess
it's to hang your pants on.'

(It's nice to see a blonde winning...once in awhile.)

Police Officer Test:

How do you tell the difference between an English Police Officer, a
Canadian Police Officer, an American
Police Officer and a Scottish police officer?

QUESTION:You're on duty by yourself (don't ask why, you just are, and your
Sergeant hates you) walking on a deserted street late at night.
Suddenly, an armed man with a huge knife comes around the corner, locks
eyes with you, screams obscenities, raises the knife and lunges at you.

You are carrying your trucheon and are an expert in using it. However, you
have only a split second to react before he reaches you.  What do you do ?

ANSWER:

London Police Officer:
Firstly, the Officer must consider the man's human rights.
1) Does the man look poor or oppressed?
2) Is he newly arrived in this country and does not yet understand the law?
3) Is this really a knife or a ceremonial dagger?
4) Have I ever done anything to him that would inspire him to attack?
5) Am I dressed provocatively?
6) Could I run away?
7) Could I possibly swing my truncheon and knock the knife out of his hand?
8) Should I try and negotiate with him to discuss his wrong-doings?
9) Why am I carrying a truncheon anyway and what kind of message does this
send to society?
10) Does he definitely want to kill me or would he be content just to wound
me?
11) If I were to grab his knees and hold on, would he still want to stab
and kill me?
12) If I raise my truncheon and he turns and runs away, do I get blamed if
he falls over, knocks his head and kills himself?
13) If I hurt him and lose the subsequent court case, does he have the
opportunity to sue me, cost me my job, my credibility and the loss of my
family home?

Canadian Police Officer:
BANG!

American Police Officer:
BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG!

BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG!

Glasgow Police Officer:
"Haw, Jimmie.. Drop the knife, noo, unless you want it stuck up yer ar*e!"

One night on my way home from the Pub a Haggis trundled up to me and said "
You're drunk "

Gentle thoughts

Gentle Thoughts for Today
Birds of a feather flock together...
And then sh*t on your car.

A penny saved is a
Government oversight.

The older you get, the tougher
It is to lose weight, because by
Then your body and your fat have
Gotten to be really good friends.

The easiest way to find
Something lost around the
House is to buy a replacement...

He who hesitates is probably right.

Did you ever notice: The Roman
Numerals for forty (40) are 'XL'.

The sole purpose of a child's
Middle name is so he can
Tell when he's really in trouble.

Did you ever notice: When you
Put the 2 words 'The' and 'IRS'
Together it spells 'Theirs....'

Aging: Eventually you will
Reach a point when you stop
Lying about your age and
Start bragging about it.

Some people try to turn back
Their odometers. Not me, I want
People to know 'why' I look this
Way. I've traveled a long way and
Some of the roads weren't paved.

When you are dissatisfied and
Would like to go back to your
Youth, think of Algebra.

You know you are getting
Old when everything either
Dries up or leaks.

One of the many things no
One tells you about aging
Is that it is such a nice change
From being young. Ah, being
Young is beautiful, but being
Old is comfortable.

Lord, Keep your arm around
My shoulder and your hand
Over my mouth . . . AMEN

When do you drink water?¯

Irish Idiom...:

Letter from an Irish Mother to her Son!

Dear Son,

Just a few lines to let you know I'm still alive.  I'm writing
this letter slowly because I know you can't read fast.  We are all doing
very well.

You won't recognise the house when you get home - we have
moved. Your dad read in the newspaper that most accidents happen within 20
miles from your home, so we moved.  I won't be able to send you the address
because the last Irish family that lived here took the house numbers when
they moved so that they wouldn't have to change their address.

 This place is really nice. It even has a washing machine. I'm
not sure it works so well though: last week I put a load in and pulled the
chain and haven't seen them since..

 Your father's got a really good job now. He's got 500 men
under him.  He's cutting the grass at the cemetery.

 Your sister Mary had a baby this morning but I haven't found
out if it's a boy or a girl, so I don't know whether you are an auntie or
an uncle.

 Your brother Tom is still in the army. He's only been there a
short while and they've already made him a court martial!

Your Uncle Patrick drowned last week in a vat of whisky in the
Dublin Brewery. Some of his workmates tried to save him but he fought them
off bravely. They cremated him and it took three days to put out the fire.

 I'm sorry to say that your cousin Seamus was arrested while
riding his bicycle last week. They are charging him with dope peddling.

 I went to the doctor on Thursday and your father went with me.
The doctor put a small tube in my mouth and told me not to talk for ten
minutes. Your father offered to buy it  from him.

The weather isn't bad here. It only rained twice this week,
first for three days and then for four days. Monday was so windy one of the
chickens laid the same egg four times.

 We had a letter from the undertaker. He said if the last
payment on your grandmother's plot wasn't paid in seven days, up she comes.

 About that coat you wanted me to send you, your Uncle Stanley
said it would be too heavy to send in the mail with the buttons on, so we
cut them off and put them in the  pockets.

 John locked his keys in the car yesterday. We were really
worried because it took him two hours to get me and your father out.

 Three of your friends went off a bridge in a pick-up truck.
Ralph was driving. He rolled down the window and swam to safety. Your other
two friends were in the back. They drowned because they couldn't get the
tailgate down.

 There isn't much more news at this time.. Nothing much has
happened..

 Your loving Mum.

 P.S. I was going to send you some money but I had already
sealed the envelope.

F-35 joint strike force fighter outside loop:

This was an outside loop!!
This guy clearly has brass and you know the sailors on the flight deck had
a cow when they saw this unfold in front of them.  Intentional? Hardly!

This is unbelievable!  F-35 unintentional loop at takeoff - a real "check
your laundry" event. A supremely well-trained US Navy pilot, ice running in
his veins instead of blood, fully regains control of his $70 million,
F-35 joint strike force fighter, after a problematic vertical take-off
attempt... Watch as the rear vertical thruster fires to cause the problem.

There's nothing about this the pilot enjoys. If he could have ejected at
100' upside down and lived, he would have. Looks like the afterburner kicks
in while still vectored for vertical takeoff. Lockheed would call this a
"software malfunction" and do a little more "regressive testing".

This is a good demonstration of power-to-weight ratio of this aircraft! And
talk about stability control...
wow!  If he didn't come out of the loop wings-level, it probably would have
been bad news; maybe taking some of the carrier with him!  Add to this
flying through your own exhaust, which can lead to equipment malfunctions,
as in "flame out".

The F-35 is single engine aircraft with vertical takeoff/landing
capability, but it has the aerodynamics of a
Steinway piano at zero airspeed. This is the most unbelievable piece of
flying you will ever see in your life.

This guy's coolness saved a 70 million-dollar aircraft! On the other hand,
he might not have had time to react to anything except just ride it.

A replacement:

A man was looking for a job and he noticed that there was an opening at the
local zoo. He inquired about the job and discovered that the zoo had a very
unusual position that they wanted to fill. Apparently their gorilla had
died, and until they could get a new one, they needed someone to dress up
in a gorilla suit and act like a gorilla for a few days. He was to just
sit, eat, and sleep. His identity would be kept a secret of course. Thanks
to a very fine gorilla suit, no one would be the wiser. The zoo offered
good pay for this job,
so the man decided to do it. He tried on the suit and sure enough, he
looked just like a gorilla.

They led him to the cage; he took a position at the back of the cage and
pretended to sleep. But after a while, he got tired of sitting so he walked
around a little bit, jumped up and down and tried a few gorilla noises. The
people who were watching him seemed to really like that. When he would move
or jump around, they would clap and cheer and throw him peanuts. And the
man loved peanuts. So he jumped around some more and tried climbing a tree.

That seemed to really get the crowd excited. They threw more peanuts.
Playing to the crowd, he grabbed a vine and swung from one side of the cage
to the other. The people loved it and threw more peanuts.

Wow, this is great, he thought. He swung higher and the crowd grew bigger.
He continued to swing on the vine, getting higher and higher and then all
of a sudden, the vine broke! He swung up and out of the cage,
landing in the lion's cage that was next door.

He panicked. There was a huge lion not twenty feet away, and it looked very
hungry. So the man in the gorilla suit started jumping up and down,
screaming and yelling, Help, help! Get me out of here! I'm not really a
gorilla! I'm a man in a gorilla suit! Heeelllllp

The lion quickly pounced on the man, held him down and said, Will you be
quiet! You're going to get both of us fired!

Sarah Palin Wonders If Malaysian Flight 370 'Flew Directly to Heaven' ???:

Sarah Palin claimed today that Malaysia Flight 370 may have vanished
because it mistakenly flew too high and ended up in heaven.

  During an appearance on Fox News last night Sean Hannity asked the former
vice-presidential candidate for her thoughts about the aircraft, which has
been missing for nearly two weeks.

  The former Alaska governor stunned viewers with an unorthodox new theory
that international investigators have so far ignored.

  I see all these smarty pants people on CNN saying that it was terrorism
or a fire in the c*ckpit,¯ she explained to a bewildered Hannity, But I
don't hear anyone talking about the God possibility. I mean what if they
accidentally flew too high and go stuck up there?

  I'm not expert on international aviation. But I do know that God is up
there looking down on us. And everyone knows that once you go to heaven you
can't come back. This would explain why we haven't found any wreckage in
the ocean and why no one saw the plane land.

  "The radar had the plane at 45,000 feet, well above it's usual cruising
altitude. Who knows how much higher they went?

  Of course the looney liberal media can only imagine secular explanations
for this mystery. They would never tell the American public that God might
be involved! But I hope the Malaysian authorities and the
NTSB take a look at the facts and seriously consider the idea that this
flight crossed into Christ's kingdom and isn't coming back.¯
  Above the Clouds

  Malaysia Flight 370 vanished without a trace on March 8th less than two
hours into a regularly scheduled flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing. After
an exhaustive search no sign of the aircraft or Its 227 passengers and 12
crew have been found.

  Initial speculation centered on the theory that a sudden explosive
decompression destroyed the Boeing 777 over the South China Sea. But a
subsequent review of radar and satellite data revealed that shortly after
contact was lost the flight made a drastic left turn and continued flying
for seven hours.

  The latest information seems to suggest that someone on the plane
deliberately shut down its transponder and flew it off course. However, the
uncertainty about the who may have done so and why has fed a wide range of
conspiracy theories involving everything from the singer Shakira to aliens.

  Palin seems to be the first to suggest, however, that there may be a
supernatural solution to this puzzle and the bizarre idea proved too much
even for the devoutly Catholic Hannity.

  You realize that heaven isn't an actually in the sky right?¯, he pleaded,
The concept of heaven is metaphorical. Some people believe it's in another
dimension or in another universe. It's not something you can just fly
into.

  Sean I think its incredibly arrogant for us as humble human beings to
claim that we know how heaven works, Palin responded, How do you know
there's not a door to heaven in the sky between Malaysia and
Vietnam?

World's Worst & Ugliest Cars:

This is a compilation of the world's worst & ugliest looking cars! This is
a list of cars from all over the world,
including some cars recently launched in India!
 Click here

The World's Ugliest Car - looks like it's melting!
(this is the LADA, Russian SUV concept that we hope will never see the
light of day - )

Unveiled in 2010, Tata Magic Iris may be a great and efficient vehicle for
India (and may even one day replace the ubiquitous autorickshaw),but to our
eyes it has very unbalanced shape... as though somebody kicked it in the
back and sent it on its way, wobbling and bouncing along:

The Aurora monster was built in 1957 by an eccentric New York priest trying
to make the ultimate safety vehicle. Clearly, this design was not graced by
the hand of God:

only one prototype was produced, and it broke down 15 times on the way to
the press conference,
requiring towing to 7 different garages (more info, and images at Gatsby
Magazine):

Safari Car (left) and 1968 Ostentatienne Opera Sedan, made by Mohs
Automobile - no side doors here;
entry is only from the rear door, what a bright idea:

Overland OctoAuto (1911): perfect for Doctor Octopus' garage!

Measuring more than 20 ft in length, Milton Reevesā€™ barmy behemoth had 8
wheels and received zero customer orders when it went on display at the
inaugural Indianapolis 500.

Unable to realize that 4 wheels was the future of automobiles, Reeves made
a 6 wheeled S*xAuto the following year, which was another flop.

Imagine the length of congestion lines today if 8 wheels had caught on as a
design concept!

Here is some strangely bloated 1912 racing car from Turin, Fiat S76,
rightly called "The Beast of Turin":

Scripps-Booth Bi-Autogo! (don't you just love this name?)

Not really a car but some sort of a bike / cart hybrid, this two-wheeled
3,200-lb monstrosity was built in 1913 and was powered by the very first V8
engine that was made in Detroit.

Check out the huge external radiator, made from the shiny copper tubes...
The Scribbs-
Bah...Bi...Whatever... even comes equipped with the training wheels!

A similar two-wheeled (or somewhat three-wheeled) "thing" was manufactured
from 1925-1928 in France

from a design by the Mauser company (better known for guns) and called a
"Monotrace":

King Midget (1946): Plain as a Box

Aiming to provide a cheap kit car every household could afford, Midget
Motors Corporation put together the King Midget package,containing an
instruction manual, axles, chassis, steering system, springs and patterned
schematics for the sheet metal.

Able to accept all one cylinder engines, the King Midget was bargain
basement design at its worst and later models were discontinued with
stricter safety and emissions regulations.

To say that King's dashboard was simple is an understatement (left), and to
our eye, this vehicle looks better and more interesting when totally
rusted:

Even Uglier: The Town Shopper

Made by Carter Motor Corporation in California in 1950:

Renault Dauphine (1956): considered by many to be "the Slowest Car of All
Time"

Proof that no one ever lost money underestimating the intelligence and
taste of the general public, the
Renault Dauphine sold very well, over 2 million units globally.

Not bad, considering it was a cheap heap of junk with no identifiable
redeeming feature other than what the scr*p merchant ultimately offered for
it.

A continental bad joke, the Dauphine possessed the glacial acceleration
(able to reach 60 mph from start in "only" 32 seconds) and was so prone to
rusting that one hard winter could corrode the front wings into sieves.

People were saying that "if you stood beside it, you could actually hear it
rusting". Imagine how criminals rejoiced when French police was outfitted
with Dauphines! And yet it even was used in car racing:

The actual shape of Renault Dauphine is not that bad-looking, and holds
nostalgic value for many people.

The idea behind this car was to provide modest transportation to many
working families in a post-war recovery France.

It did just that, but barely, providing people with many hilarious
memories, and earning itself a place in many "worst cars" lists.

Zunndapp Janus (1958): better not to look where it's going...

When the Janus was unveiled industry experts werenā€™t two-faced with their
reaction, they all openly agreed it was terrible.

Equipped with a 250-cc engine and boasting a maximum speed of 50 mph, the
Janus proved that motorbike manufacturers shouldnā€™t meddle in the
motorcar market.

Hilariously, the back seats were rear-facing so the red-faced passengers
could watch congestion build up behind them while being serenaded with an
irate cacophony of car horns.

The dashboard was no less hilarious:

Amphicar (1961): equally bad on the road and in the water

There was a certain sinking feeling about this bizarre concept car,
seemingly thought up by a drunk car designer who had watched far too many
Bond films.

Able to drive on land and ride on water, the Amphicar wasnā€™t watertight
and therefore only floated for as long as a pump held out or passengers
could bucket the rising flood overboard.

With a top speed of 7 mph when on water, consumers decided to keep their
cars and boats as separate vehicles.

Peel Trident (1966): you'll be so hot, your skin will start peeling off

A woeful attempt to make a futuristic car (though it is rather neat
looking, in a soap box sort of way), the
Peel Trident was made on the Isle of Wight and was basically a go-kart with
a ludicrously heavy bubble-
like chassis. Slow and c*mbersome, the Peel Trident was quickly laughed off
the road, particularly as the plastic dome threatened to cook the
passengers under the harsh gaze of the sun.

The Bond Bug (1970): Ask Sean Connery what he thinks about this

No relation to Agent 007, and ugly as sin, the Bond Bug was a two seated
sports car with three wheels which had a short production run of four
years, during which the guffaws from car critics resounded loudly.

The bright orange body paint made it look like a satsuma on wheels and the
price was ridiculously high for such a small oddball of a vehicle that
fared poorly when compared with the iconic and cheaper Mini.

See other super-small vehicles in our Smallest Cars series. One advantage
of their size, of course, is that you can transport them on the flat bed of
your truck:

Sebring-Vanguard CitiCar (1974): a pyramidal abomination

Surely this ugly duckling should be applauded for being an early attempt at
introducing an electric car on to the motor market?

No, it looked like the mismanaged mix of a golf-cart and a garden shed.
Made as a response to the 70s fuel crisis, the Sebring-Vanguard CitiCar
placed the reputation of car design and manufacturing itself in jeopardy
with its unpopular box-like body. Its production run ran for four years.

Incredibly awkward-looking Aston Martin Lagonda wagon (left) and the overly
souped-up Porsche (actually
RUF CTR-2):

Miserably-shaped 1965 Citroen Ami (designed by an Italian sculptor, it has
an eclectic, perhaps too eclectic shape - which still looks like parts
badly put together):

Ungainly Ford Taunus 2000 GXL with a custom front:

A kit car, but no less crime against any design sense ("a dash of Corvette,
the headlights from a Cougar,
tail lights from a Vauxhall, powered by a VW engine"), more info:

The 1977 Volkswagen prototype by Luigi Colani (definitely not the high
point in the career of the master):

Fiat Multipla (1998): this is ugly beyond reasonable level of ugliness

Proof that looks do matter, the Fiat Multipla is an ugly beast that had
drivers staying away in droves.

Less aesthetically pleasing than a proboscis monkey, Fiat trumpeted its
excellence as a family carrier,

while families pointed out they wouldn't be seen dead in it. Given the
advancements made in car design over the decades, how on Earth did the
schematics for the Multipla ever get used for anything other than a
practical joke?

Another Fiat, this time called "Doblo" (left), and a weird Australian item
(a Lightburn Zeta?):

Strange Tanghua ("A Piece of Cloud") concept car from China, 2008:

What is this?? A customized Tato Nano, that's what:

Fiat Aquila concept (left) and a custom abomination from the 2007 Tokyo
Auto Show:

Here is a truly outrageous-looking concept car, the recent 2010 Sbarro
Autobau - more info. It may look like it's got teeth and preparing to eat
you for breakfast.

It also looks like it's been hastily put together from LEGO blocks by a
4-year old. But in any case, the future is here and looks as yellow as it
can possibly be.

Stay tuned for the next part in this series!

Important Information About Vitamin D:

Vitamin D prevents osteoporosis, depression, prostate cancer, breast
cancer,and even effects diabetes and obesity.

Vitamin D is perhaps the single most underrated nutrient in the world of
nutrition. That's probably because it's free: your body makes it when
sunlight touches your skin.

Fifteen facts that are important to know about vitamin D and sunlight
exposure:

1. Vitamin D is produced by your skin in response to exposure to
ultraviolet radiation from natural sunlight.

2. The healing rays of natural sunlight (that generate vitamin D in your
skin) cannot penetrate glass. So you don't generate vitamin D when sitting
in your car or home.

3. It is nearly impossible to get adequate amounts of vitamin D from your
diet. Sunlight exposure is the only reliable way to generate vitamin D in
your own body.

4. A person would have to drink ten tall glasses of vitamin D fortified
milk each day just to get minimum levels of vitamin D into their diet.

5. The further you live from the equator, the longer exposure you need to
the sun in order to generate vitamin D. Canada, the UK and most U.S. States
are far from the equator.

6. People with dark skin pigmentation may need 20 - 30 times as much
exposure to sunlight as fair-
skinned people to generate the same amount of vitamin D. That's why
prostate cancer is epidemic among black men - it's a simple, but
widespread, sunlight deficiency.

7. Sufficient levels of vitamin D are crucial for calcium absorption in
your intestines. Without sufficient vitamin D, your body cannot absorb
calcium,rendering calcium supplements useless.

8. Chronic vitamin D deficiency cannot be reversed overnight: it takes
months of vitamin D supplementation and sunlight exposure to rebuild the
body's bones and nervous system.

9. Even weak sunscreens (SPF=8) block your body's ability to generate
vitamin D by 95%. This is how sunscreen products actually cause disease -by
creating a critical vitamin deficiency in the body.

10. It is impossible to generate too much vitamin D in your body from
sunlight exposure: your body will self-regulate and only generate what it
needs.

11. If it hurts to press firmly on your sternum, you may be suffering from
chronic vitamin D deficiency right now.

12. Vitamin D is "activated" in your body by your kidneys and liver before
it can be used.

13. Having kidney disease or liver damage can greatly impair your body's
ability to activate circulating vitamin D.

14. The sunscreen industry doesn't want you to know that your body actually
needs sunlight exposure because that realization would mean lower sales of
sunscreen products.

15. Even though vitamin D is one of the most powerful healing chemicals in
your body, your body makes it absolutely free. No prescription required.

On the issue of sunlight exposure, by the way, it turns out that super
antioxidants greatly boost your body's ability to handle sunlight without
burning. Astaxanthin is one of the most powerful "internal sunscreens" and
can allow you to stay under the sun twice as long without burning.

Other powerful antioxidants with this ability include the super fruits like
Acai, Pomegranates (POM
Wonderful juice), blueberries, etc.

Diseases and conditions cause by vitamin D deficiency:

* Osteoporosis is commonly caused by a lack of vitamin D, which greatly
impairs calcium absorption.

* Sufficient vitamin D prevents prostate cancer, breast cancer, ovarian
cancer, depression, colon cancer and schizophrenia.

* "Rickets" is the name of a bone-wasting disease caused by vitamin D
deficiency.

* Vitamin D deficiency may exacerbate type 2 diabetes and impair insulin
production in the pancreas.

* Obesity impairs vitamin D utilization in the body, meaning obese people
need twice as much vitamin D.

* Vitamin D is used around the world to treat Psoriasis.

* Vitamin D deficiency can cause schizophrenia.

* Seasonal Affective Disorder is caused by a melatonin imbalance initiated
by lack of exposure to sunlight.

* Chronic vitamin D deficiency is often misdiagnosed as fibromyalgia
because its symptoms are so similar:
muscle weakness, aches and pains.

* Your risk of developing serious diseases like diabetes and cancer is
reduced 50% - 80% through simple,
sensible exposure to natural sunlight 2-3 times each week.

* Infants who receive vitamin D supplementation (2000 units daily) have an
80% reduced risk of developing type 1 diabetes over the next twenty years.

Shocking Vitamin D deficiency statistics:

* 32% of doctors and med school students are vitamin D deficient.

* 40% of the U.S. population is vitamin D deficient.

* 42% of African American women of childbearing age are deficient in
vitamin D.

* 48% of young girls (9-11 years old) are vitamin D deficient.

* Up to 60% of all hospital patients are vitamin D deficient.

* 76% of pregnant mothers are severely vitamin D deficient, causing
widespread vitamin D deficiencies in their unborn children, which
predisposes them to type 1 diabetes, arthritis, multiple sclerosis and
schizophrenia later in life. 81% of the children born to these mothers were
deficient.

* Up to 80% of nursing home patients are vitamin D deficient.

Drinking In Ireland:

  "As good as this bar is," said the Scotsman, "I still prefer the pubs
  back home.
  In Glasgow , there's a wee place called McTavish's......
  The landlord goes out of his way for the locals.
  When you buy four drinks, he'll buy the fifth drink."

  "Well, Angus," said the Englishman, "At my local in London,
  the Red Lion, the barman will buy you your third drink after you buy
  the first two."

  "Ahhh, dat's nothin'," said Paddy Sheehan, the Irishman. "Back home in
  me favorite pub in Galway, the moment you set foot in the place, they'll
  buy you a drink, then another, all the drinks you like, actually. Then,
when
  you've had enough drinks, they'll take you upstairs and see dat you get
laid,
  all on the house."

  The Englishman and Scotsman were suspicious of the claims.
  "Did this actually happen to you?"

  "Not meself, personally, no," admitted the Irishman, "but it did happen
  to me sister quite a few times."

Grandma and the free Oranges:

 Lulu was a prostitute, but she didn't want her grandma to know.

One day, the police raided the brothel and took all the girls outside
and made them line up.
Suddenly, Lulu's grandma came by.

Grandma asked, "Why are you standing in line here, dear?"

Not willing to let her grandma know the truth, Lulu told her that the
police were passing out free oranges and she was just lining up for some.

"Why, that's awfully nice of them. I think I'll get some for myself,"
Grandma said, and she proceeded to the back of the line.

A policeman was going down the line asking for information from all the
prostitutes. When he got to grandma, he was bewildered and exclaimed, "Wow,
still going at it at your age? How do you do it old girl?"

Grandma replied, "Oh, it's easy, dear. I just take my dentures out, rip
the skin back and suck em' dry."

The policeman fainted.

As you may know, ammunition is in real short supply and last night a man in
his 80's lucked out and was able to buy several boxes of AR-15 5.56 NATO
round ammo at the local sporting goods store.

On his way home he stopped at the 7-Eleven station for some gas where this
drop-dead gorgeous young blonde was filling up her car at the pump next to
his.

She glanced at the ammo boxes in the back of his Jeep and said in a very
seductive voice, "Hey old timer, I'm a big believer in barter, would you be
interested in trading s*x for ammo?"

The old guy thought for a moment and replied, "Yep, I might be, what kinda

PARTY AT THE SENIOR CENTER LAST NIGHT:

 LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT THE PARTY AT MY SISTER’S  SENIOR CENTre
LAST NIGHT

  Last night she went to a party at the local senior center.
The second Tuesday of every month they have an evening potluck supper.
  They usually eat, play bingo, reminisce, and drink a little
wine and talk about the good ole days...
  Selma Martin's grandson is staying with her for a few weeks.
It's rumored he got in a scr*p over some marijuana with the law  in Calgary
and he came to Richmond to avoid the heat.
  Anyway, Selma is known for her delicious Brownies and she
always bakes up a quadruple batch for each get-together. She makes enough
for everyone and some for folks to take one home for later.
  For some reason they were extra good this week and every last
one of them was eaten. Not a one left over.
  We later found out that Selma 's grandson, Butch, laced the
brownies with some of his marijuana.
  Knowing this, I guess it offers a logical reason for everyone
feeling good that night. By the time
Zeke put on a hip hop record, everyone was in a real good mood and it was
the first time the whole place got up and danced the conga
line..............

  That is until the cops came to check all the noise
complaints.

  Well, that's another story.....................

  YOU PUT YOUR LEFT FOOT IN AND.... WELL YOU KNOW THE REST!
.............. .......................

  Life's too Short....and you thought all we did was play Bingo

Giraffe Manor:
 Click here Click here Click here Click here Click here Click here
 Click here Click here Click here Click here Click here Click here
 Click here

Giraffe Manor is a unique property and hotel in the Lang'ata suburb of
Nairobi , Kenya ,
famous for its resident herd of endangered Rothschild giraffes that live in
the extensive grounds of the manor house. Every day shortly before 9am, the
mammoth beasts stroll up to the house and poke their heads through the
windows and doors in search of morning treats.

Guests could feed the giraffes from their breakfast table, photograph them
and interact with this graceful animal through the open window, at the
front door and even at the second floor bedroom window.

This is the only place in the world where one can share breakfast with the
worlds tallest animal.

The Giraffe Manor was built in 1932 by Sir David Duncan, in 150 acres of
land running down to the Mbagathi River, the southern boundary of the city
of Nairobi . In the 1960s the Manor was purchased by a local investor who
leased it to a succession of people, including the late Dennis Lakin,
before it fell into disrepair, unoccupied.

From 1974, Giraffe Manor was the home of Jock and Betty
Leslie-Melville,whose lifelong ambition became the preservation of this
beautiful and threatened species of giraffe.

When Jock died, Betty decided to open her house, now called The Giraffe
Manor, to visitors. Today, many tourist make the Giraffe Manor part of
their East African Safari. Some spend a week here and The
Giraffe Manor is reported to have many repeat guests, who have become old
friends with the hotel owners.

The Giraffe Manor is surrounded by 140 acres of indigenous forest just
outside Kenya 's capital, Nairobi .
As well as the giraffe, the property is also home to many species of birds,
large families of Warthogs and the elusive Bush Buck.

BEFORE CHAINSAWS....THIS IS AMAZING:

Before chainsaws were invented, the logging industry in the United States &
Canada was a seriously challenging occupation and we are only talking about
125 years ago. In the Pacific Northwest there were forests full of monster
trees and cutting them down was done by hand.

A friend sent me these photos and I had to share them with you.

Look at the length of the two-man hand saw and heavy duty axes above that
they used to drop these tremendous trees.  It is almost inconceivable to
think of cutting down a tree this size with a hand saw.

The work required very strong men (and horses) working long days for
minimal pay. Could you imagine doing this to earn a living?

After a tree was finally felled, it took a week or more to cut it up into
sections that could be managed (somehow) and transported by train to a
lumber yard.

Maneuvering the logs down the mountain to the train was a complex job.  I
didn't do any research on this, but I would be willing to bet that many men
lost their lives doing this dangerous work.
One slip and a hunk of wood as big as a hotel is rolling your way!  The
other question that begs an answer is how did they get those logs up onto
the flatbeds of that train?

Hollowed out logs became the company's mobile office. Can you imagine
stacking such logs to build a log home?   Two courses would produce a 30'
ceiling.  Maybe that's why it was easier to hollow out a tree.

A long time before anyone ever thought of a mobile home or RV, hollowed out
logs were also used to house and feed the logging crews.

We are accustomed to our modern conveniences like electricity and
gasoline-powered chainsaws, and it is always such a mind-boggling
experience to see how such monumental tasks were performed before these
conveniences appeared on the scene.  Remember that the picture above shows
a hollowed-out log made into a travel trailer.

Share this with your friends.  Even those who don't live in a log home will
enjoy this blast from the past!

Ta End is Near

Sean is the pastor of a Church of England parish on the Northern Ireland /
Southern Ireland border and
Patrick is the priest in the Roman Catholic Church across the road.
One day they are seen together erecting a sign into the ground which says:

TA END IS NEAR!
TURN YERSELF AROUNT NOW
AFOR IT IS TOO LATE!

As a car speeds past them, the driver leans out his window and yells,
"Leave people alone you Oirish religious nutters! We don't need your
lectures."

From the next curve they hear screeching tyres and a big splash.

Shaking his head, Rev. Patrick says, "Dat's da terd one dis mornin'."

"Yaa," Pastor Sean agrees, "Do ya tink maybe da soign should jost
say, 'BRIDGE OUTā€™?"

Union rules:

The Hookers' Union

A dedicated AWU union worker, Craig Thompson was attending a convention in
Sydney and decided to check out the local brothels.

When he got to the first one, he asked the Madam, "Is this a union run
house?"

"No," she replied, "I'm sorry it isn't."

"Well, if I pay you $100, what cut do the girls get?"

"The house gets $80 and the girls get $20," she answered.

Offended at such unfair dealings, Craig stomps off down the street in
search of a more equitable,
hopefully unionized shop. His search continued until finally he reached a
brothel where the Madam responded, "Why yes sir, this is a union house. We
observe all union rules."

Craig asked, "And, if I pay you $100, what cut do the girls get?"

"The girls get $80 and the house gets $20."

"That's more like it!" Craig said.

He handed the Madam $100, looked around the room, and pointed to a
stunningly attractive green-
eyed blonde.

"I'd like her," he said.

"I'm sure you would, sir," said the Madam. Then she gestured to a
92-year old woman in the corner,
"but Ethel here has 67 years seniority and according to union rules, she's
next cab off the rank!"

Excellent Questions from a son to his Father:

A young Arab asks his father,
"What is that weird hat you are wearing?"

The father said, "Why,
It's a 'chechia' because in the desert it protects our heads
from the sun."

"And what is this type of clothing that you are wearing?" asked
the young man.

"It's a 'djbellah' because in the desert  it’s very hot and it
protects the body." said the father.

The son asked,
“And what about those ugly shoes on your feet?

His father replied,
"These are 'babouches", which keep us from burning our feet in
the desert."

"So tell me then," added the boy.

"Yes, my son?"

"Why are you living in Cabramatta, and still wearing all this sh*t?

Breast Feeding Incident:

A man was riding a bus, minding his own business, when the gorgeous woman
next to him started to breastfeed her baby.

The baby wouldn't take it, so she said,"Come on sweetie, eat it all up or
I'll have to give it to this nice man next to us."

Five  minutes later, the baby was still not feeding, so she said, "Come on,
honey. Take it or I'll give it to this nice man here."

A few minutes later, the anxious man blurted out, "Come on kid.
Make up your mind! I was supposed to get off four stops ago!
