Archeological finds

After having dug to a depth of 10 feet last year, New York scientists found traces of copper wire dating back 100 years and came to the conclusion, that their ancestors already had a telephone network more than 100 years ago.

Not to be outdone by the New Yorkers, in the weeks that followed, in California an archaeologist dug to a depth of 20 feet, and shortly after, headlines in the LA Times newspaper read: ‘California archaeologists have found traces of 200 year old copper wire and have concluded that their ancestors already had an advanced high-tech communications network a hundred years earlier than the New Yorkers.’

One week later, ‘The Lakin Independent, a local newspaper in Kansas , reported the following: “After digging as deep as 300 feet in his pasture near Deerfield, Kearney County , Kansas , Bubba Mitchell, a self-taught archaeologist, reported that he found absolutely nothing. Bubba has therefore concluded that 300 years ago, Kansas had already gone wireless.”

Jokes for Relaxing - After Party

"I went to a Christmas party the other night and was having a real blast.
After I'd been there a few hours (and several, several drinks),
I noticed this fabulous blonde standing over to the side.
She was in her early to mid twenties with beautiful long blonde hair down to her waist.
She was built like a brick, well, anyway she was built!
The amazing thing was, she kept staring at me and smiling.
Naturally, being a man, I decided to go try my luck.
Like they say, nothing ventured, nothing gained.
I went over and stuck up a conversation with her
(don't remember about what, but it had to be very interesting).
Well, one thing led to another and she invited me back to her place
and being the gentleman I am, I said "OK."
I'm not going to go into all the details of the night (mainly because I don't remember),
but I awoke the next morning to the aroma of fresh coffee and bacon frying.
I thought now this is great! I think I might have a keeper here.
I got up and got dressed and headed for the kitchen.
When I got there her mom (looked to be in her 80's or 90's) was standing at the stove. Embarrassed, I stammered, "Where's your daughter?"
She slowly turned around with a sly little smile on her face and said,
"I don't have a daughter.

Top 10 Myths - Ninjas

Having spent time studying ninjutsu (under the Bujinkan dojos), I have long wanted to put a list like this together. Here I look at some of the historic myths and even some of the ridiculous modern myths that have sprung up about this truly fascinating art. Ninjutsu is a serious martial art - it is nothing like the movies portray, though its history does explain partly the reason that so many “mystical” myths have arisen over the years.


10. Ninjas Are Mythical
Myth: Real ninjas are a myth

9. Ninjas And Swords
Myth: As a matter of course, Ninjas caught swords with their bare hands

8. Ninjas Wore Masks
Myth: Ninjas wore masks when fighting and black clothes; it is their uniform.

7. Ninjas Vanished
Myth: Ninjas were able to vanish

6. Ninjas and Pressure Points
Myth: Ninjas can’t kill just by touching

5. Ninjutsu - the name
Myth: Ninjutsu refers to fighting methods

4. Shuriken: killer stars
Myth: Shuriken (throwing stars) are used to kill at a distance

3. Ninja Weapons
Myth: Ninjas only use ancient Japanese weapons

2. Ninja Strength
Myth: Ninjas need to be strong and fast

1. Pirates Versus Ninjas
Myth: Pirates are better than ninjas

Read the details of the myth here.

2. You're at a party with a bunch of friends and see a gorgeous girl.One of your friends goes up to her and pointing at you says: 'He's very rich. 'Marry him.' - That's Advertising

3. You see a gorgeous girl at a party. You go up to her and get her telephone number. The next day, you call and say: 'Hi, I'm very rich.'Marry me.' - That's Telemarketing

4. You're at a party and see a gorgeous girl. You get up andstraighten your tie, walk up to her and pour her a drink. You open the door (of the car) for her, pick up her bag after she drops it, offer her a ride and then say: 'By the way, I'm rich. Will you 'Marry Me?' - That's Public Relations

5. You're at a party and see a gorgeous girl.. She walks up to you and says: 'You are very rich! Will you marry me?' - That's Brand Recognition

6. You see a gorgeous girl at a party. You go up to her and say: 'I am very rich. Marry me!' She gives you a nice hard slap on your face.- That's Customer Feedback

Chemistry of Life - The Human Body

Roughly 96 percent of the mass of the human body is made up of just four elements: oxygen, carbon, hydrogen and nitrogen, with a lot of that in the form of water. The remaining 4 percent is a sparse sampling of the periodic table of elements.


Here are the breakdowns:

Oxygen (65%) and hydrogen (10%) are predominantly found in water, which makes up about 60 percent of the body by weight. It's practically impossible to imagine life without water.

Carbon (18%) is synonymous with life. Its central role is due to the fact that it has four bonding sites that allow for the building of long, complex chains of molecules. Moreover, carbon bonds can be formed and broken with a modest amount of energy, allowing for the dynamic organic chemistry that goes on in our cells.

Nitrogen (3%) is found in many organic molecules, including the amino acids that make up proteins, and the nucleic acids that make up DNA.

Calcium (1.5%) is the most common mineral in the human body — nearly all of it found in bones and teeth. Ironically, calcium's most important role is in bodily functions, such as muscle contraction and protein regulation. In fact, the body will actually pull calcium from bones (causing problems like osteoporosis) if there's not enough of the element in a person's diet.

Phosphorus (1%) is found predominantly in bone but also in the molecule ATP, which provides energy in cells for driving chemical reactions.

Potassium (0.25%) is an important electrolyte (meaning it carries a charge in solution). It helps regulate the heartbeat and is vital for electrical signaling in nerves.

Sulfur (0.25%) is found in two amino acids that are important for giving proteins their shape.

Sodium (0.15%) is another electrolyte that is vital for electrical signaling in nerves. It also regulates the amount of water in the body.

Chlorine (0.15%) is usually found in the body as a negative ion, called chloride. This electrolyte is important for maintaining a normal balance of fluids.

Magnesium (0.05%) plays an important role in the structure of the skeleton and muscles. It also is necessary in more than 300 essential metabolic reactions.

Iron (0.006%) is a key element in the metabolism of almost all living organisms. It is also found in hemoglobin, which is the oxygen carrier in red blood cells. Half of women don't get enough iron in their diet.

Fluorine (0.0037%) is found in teeth and bones. Outside of preventing tooth decay, it does not appear to have any importance to bodily health.

Zinc (0.0032%) is an essential trace element for all forms of life. Several proteins contain structures called "zinc fingers" help to regulate genes. Zinc deficiency has been known to lead to dwarfism in developing countries.

Copper (0.0001%) is important as an electron donor in various biological reactions. Without enough copper, iron won't work properly in the body.

Iodine (0.000016%) is required for making of thyroid hormones, which regulate metabolic rate and other cellular functions. Iodine deficiency, which can lead to goiter and brain damage, is an important health problem throughout much of the world.

Selenium (0.000019%) is essential for certain enzymes, including several anti-oxidants. Unlike animals, plants do not appear to require selenium for survival, but they do absorb it, so there are several cases of selenium poisoning from eating plants grown in selenium-rich soils.

Chromium (0.0000024%) helps regulate sugar levels by interacting with insulin, but the exact mechanism is still not completely understood.

Manganese (0.000017%) is essential for certain enzymes, in particular those that protect mitochondria — the place where usable energy is generated inside cells — from dangerous oxidants.

Molybdenum (0.000013%) is essential to virtually all life forms. In humans, it is important for transforming sulfur into a usable form. In nitrogen-fixing bacteria, it is important for transforming nitrogen into a usable form.

Cobalt (0.0000021%) is contained in vitamin B12, which is important in protein formation and DNA regulation.

Eye of gratitude

In the prime of her career, a world famous painter started to lose her eyesight. Fearful that she might lose her life as a painter, she went to see the best eye surgeon in the world.

After several weeks of delicate surgery and therapy, her eyesight was restored. The painter was so grateful that she decided to show her gratitude by repainting the doctor's office. Part of her work included painting a gigantic eye on one wall.

When she had finished her work, she held a press conference to unveil her latest work of art -- the doctor's office.

During the press conference, one reporter noticed the eye on the wall, and asked the doctor, "What was your first reaction upon seeing your newly painted office, especially that large eye on the wall?"

The eye doctor responded, "I said to myself, 'Thank God I'm not a gynecologist.'

Always begin with a joke

A popular motivational speaker was entertaining his audience.

He said : "The best years of my life were spent in the arms of a woman who wasn't my wife!"

The audience was in silence and shock.

The speaker added: "And that woman was my mother!"

Laughter and applause.


A week later, a top manager trained by the motivational speaker tried to crack this very effective joke at home during a small party.

He was a bit foggy after having a drink or two.

He said loudly, "The greatest years of my life were spent in the arms of a woman who was not my wife!"

The wife went red with shock and rage.

Standing there for 20 seconds trying to recall the second half of the joke, with the guests not saying a word, the manager finally blurted out

"... and I can't remember who she was!"

Giving up seats

Two girls board a crowded bus and one of them whispers to the other,
"Watch me embarrass a man into giving me his seat."
Pushing her way through the crowd,
she turned all of her charms upon a gentleman who looked like he might embarrass easily.
"My dear Mr. Wilson," she gushed,
"Fancy meeting you here on the bus.
Am I glad to see you! Why you're almost a stranger.
My, but I'm tired!"
The sedate gent looked up at the girl. He had never seen her before
but he rose and said pleasantly,
"Sit down, Mary, my girl. It isn't often I see you on washday.
No wonder you're tired. Being pregnant isn't easy.
By the way, don't deliver the wash until Thursday.
My wife is going to the District Attorney's office to see whether
or not she can get your husband out of jail."

Priest's Holiday

Two priests decided to go to Hawaii on vacation
They were determined to make this a real vacation by not wearing anything
that would identify them as clergy.
As soon as the plane landed they headed for a store
and bought some really outrageous shorts, shirts, sandals, sunglasses, etc.
The next morning they went to the beach Dressed in their 'tourist' garb.
They were sitting on beach chairs, enjoying a drink, the sunshine and the scenery
when a 'drop dead gorgeous' blonde in a topless bikini came walking straight towards them.
They couldn't help but stare.
As the blonde passed them she smiled and said
'Good morning, Father ~ Good morning, Father,'
nodding and addressing each of them individually, then she passed on by.
They were both stunned.
How in the world did she know they were priests?
So the next day, they went back to the store and bought even more outrageous outfits.
These were so loud you could hear them before you even saw them!
Once again, in their new attire, they settled down in their chairs to enjoy the sunshine.
After a little while, the same gorgeous blonde,
wearing a different colored topless bikini, taking her sweet time,
came walking toward them.
Again she nodded at each of them, said
'Good morning, Father ~ Good morning, Father,' and started to walk away.
One of the priests couldn't stand it any longer and said,
'Just a minute, young lady
.''Yes, Father?''
We are priests and proud of it, but I have to know,
how in the world do you know we are priests, dressed as we are?'
She replied,'Father, it's me,............
Sister Kathleen!'

How would you fix the economy?

This was an article from the St. Petersburg Times Newspaper on Sunday. The Business Section asked readers for ideas on “How Would You Fix the Economy?”

I think this guy nailed it!

Dear Mr.President,

Patriotic retirement:
There are about 40 million people over 50 in the work force; pay them $1 million a piece severance with stipulations:

1) They leave their jobs. Forty million job openings - Unemployment fixed.
2) They buy NEW American cars. Forty million cars ordered - Auto Industry fixed.
3) They either buy a house or pay off their mortgage- Housing Crisis fixed.

All this and it’s still cheaper than the “bailout”.


I guess that's how the economy crisis started. 40million x 1million = 40trillion. How is it cheaper than the bailout. Prehaps that St. Petersburg Times Newspaper reader is one of those who miscalculate his mortgage credits.

Wooden Matches Block Of 100



Wooden Block with 100 matches. Created out of one piece of wood. To use, just break a match off the block and scratch it along the block to light. In 1680, an Irish physicist named Robert Boyle (Boyle’s Law) coated a small piece of paper with phosphorous and coated a small piece of wood with sulfur. He then rubbed the wood across the paper and created a fire. However, there was no useable match created by Robert Boyle. A great hostess gift, corporate gift or volume gift.”
