Rio LED Showerhead



This Singapore Changi Airport decor look alike showerhead doesn't come cheap. It's at least USD$4K per piece. With such high cost, this thing probably went through a hell of quality control and thus the owner can rest assured he/she won't get electricuted during shower.

Small World

Joe decides to take his boss Phil to play 9 holes on their lunch. While both men are playing excellent they are often held up by two women in front of them moving at a very slow pace. Joe offers to talk to the women and see if they can speed it up a bit. He gets about 3/4ths of the way stops and jogs back. His boss asks what the problem is.

Joe said "Well one of those women is my wife and the other my mistress.” Phil just shook his head at Joe and started towards the women determined to finish his round of golf. Preparing to ask the ladies to hurry their game he too stopped short and turned around.

Joe asked "what's wrong?"

Phil replies, "It's a small, small world Joe, and you're fired."

Captain Speaking

A plane was taking off from Kennedy Airport. After it reached a comfortable cruising altitude, the captain made an announcement over the intercom, “Ladies and gentlemen, this is your captain speaking. Welcome to Flight Number 276, nonstop from New York to Los Angeles. The weather ahead is good and therefore we should have a smooth and uneventful flight. Now sit back and relax - OH MY GOD!”

Silence.

Then, the captain came back on the intercom and said, “Ladies and Gentlemen, I am so sorry if I scared you earlier, but while I was talking, the flight-attendant brought me a cup of coffee and spilled the hot coffee in my lap. You should see the front of my pants!”

A passenger in coach said, “That’s nothing. He should see the back of mine!”

Debt Cycle

It was August and somewhere in a small village in the Mediterranean area
it was rainy and dull weather.
The tourist season was bad as well because of the financial crisis.
Everyone has debts.
All of a sudden a rich Russian tourist arrived in the only hotel in the village
and without saying a word put a hundred Euro bill on the desk,
and moved on to find a room on the top floor.
The hotel owner quickly took the money and ran to the butcher to pay his debts.
This one in turn took the money and ran to the pig farmer to pay for his debts too.
The farmer took the money and ran to the factory of pig food to pay for his debts.
The factory manager ran to the village whore to pay for his debts,
and finally the prostitute ran to the hotel to pay for her debts,
as she always used the rooms over there to share with her clients.
After a while the Russian tourist came down the stairs.
He had found no suitable room and wanted his money back,
which the hotel owner handed him.
As a matter of fact nobody had earned a dime,
but everyone was debt free now
and they looked forward more optimistically.

Top 30 Super Mario Bros Enemy



“No game in history has left a cadre of memorable bad guys like the Mario Bros games have. Others have tried, but nobody else has taken a the dreams of an acid riddled hippie and turned them into lush landscapes full of monsters, floating blocks, pits to infinity, and poor plumbing like Nintendo has. Mario has been the flagship of this company since the early eighties, and rightfully so. In this list we name the top 30 bad guys from the Mario brother series.”

Heart Transplant

"An elderly patient needed a heart transplant
and discussed his options with his doctor.
The doctor said, 'We have three possible donors.
The first donor is a young, healthy athlete who died in an automobile accident.
The second donor is a middle-aged businessman who never drank or smoked
and who died flying his private jet
.And, the third donor is an attorney who died after practicing law for 30 years.
Which do you want?
'After some careful thought, the patient replied,
'I'll take the lawyer's heart.'
After a successful transplant,
the doctor asked the patient why he had chosen the lawyer's heart.
'It was easy,' explained the patient...
'I wanted a heart that hadn't been used.'"

Facts About Salt

1. Right up to the 20th century, pound bars of salt (called amoleh) were the basic currency in Abyssinia (now called Ethiopia).

2. The amazing Salar de Uyuni (the world’s largest salt flat at 4,000 square miles) in Bolivia becomes mirrorlike when a thin layer of water lies on top. This reflectivity makes it a very useful tool in calibration scientific equipment from outer space. This amazing salt flat also contains half of the world’s supply of lithium. The salt flat is pictured above.

3. Salt is so essential to the body that if you drink too much water it can flush it out of your system and cause fatal Hyponatremia. This is what killed Jennifer Strange who entered a “Hold your wee for a wii” competition.

4. Consumption of too much salt can be deadly - you need to take about 1 gram of salt per kilogram of weight to die and this was used as a method of ritual suicide in China - especially amongst the nobility as salt was so expensive.

5. Good quality sea salt contains many essential minerals for the body. The best type of sea salt should be slightly wet from the sea it was taken from.

6. In the Middle Ages, salt was so expensive it was sometimes referred to as “white gold”. The medieval pavement of one of the transportation routes for Salt still exists in Germany where it links the inland city of L√ľneburg to the German Baltic coast.

7. Black Salt is made in India by mixing salt water with harad seeds. The mixture is left to evaporate leaving behind black lumps of salt. When the salt is ground, the resulting powder is pink (as can be seen in the image above).

8. In Guerande, France, salt is still gathered in the same way as it was by the ancient celts, using baskets through which the sea water is strained. This makes the salt very expensive and highly sought after, especially the finest quality version called Fleur de Sel (flower of salt). This salt is sprinkled on food prior to serving - it is never used in cooking.

9. There is a very common misconception that Roman soldiers were paid in salt (hence the word Salary), but in fact they were paid in normal money. The connection with salt is possibly through the fact that the soldiers protected the salt roads leading to Rome (Via Salarium). Roman Soldiers were private employees - rather than state employees.

10. Before Biblical Judaism ceased to exist, salt was mixed with animal sacrifices. This originated from Moses in Leviticus 2:13 which states: “Whatsoever sacrifice thou offerest, thou shalt season it with salt, neither shalt thou take away the salt of the covenant of thy God from thy sacrifice. In all thy oblations thou shalt offer salt.” The salt was a symbol of wisdom and discretion.

Losing Your Job Can Make You Sick

Losing your job raises the odds you'll get sick, and not just to your stomach.

Facing a firing or layoff can increase the risk of developing a new health problem, such as hypertension, heart disease, heart attack, stroke or diabetes, a new study suggests.

In some cases, the odds of getting sick because of losing a job jump 50 to 80 percent.

Perspective

A mathematician, a biologist and a physicist are sitting in a street cafe watching people going in and coming out of the house on the other side of the street. First they see two people going into the house. Time passes. After a while they notice three persons coming out of the house.

The physicist: "The measurement wasn't accurate."

The biologist: "They have reproduced."

The mathematician: "If now exactly one person enters the house then it will be empty again."

Surprise! Daydreaming Really Works the Brain

"When you daydream, you may not be achieving your immediate goal – say reading a book or paying attention in class – but your mind may be taking that time to address more important questions in your life, such as advancing your career or personal relationships," Christoff said.

That's particularly good news, because daydreaming can occupy as much as one third of our waking lives, previous studies have found.

Drunk and Fallen

A drunk had been at a pub all night. At last call, the drunk stood up to leave and fell flat on his face. He tried to stand one more time, to the same result.

He figured he'd crawl outside to get some fresh air, since maybe that would sober him up. Once outside, he stood up and fell flat on his face. So he decided to crawl the four blocks to his house.

When he arrived at the door he stood up and again fell flat on his face.

He crawled through the door and into his bedroom. When he reached his bed he tried one more time to stand up.

This time he managed to pull himself upright, but he quickly fell right into bed and was sound asleep the second his head hit the pillow.

He was awakened the next morning by his wife shouting, "So you've been out drinking again, have you?!"

"No! What makes you say that?" he asked, putting on his best innocent expression.

"The pub called... you forgot your wheelchair again."

Will This Mars Rover Ever Rove Again? Spirit Gets Stuck in the Sand



The Mars rover Spirit has driven almost 5 miles across the Martian surface, has climbed a hill as tall as the Statue of Liberty, and has generally kept on trucking for the five years since it landed on the planet, even though its mission was originally scheduled to last only 90 days. But its roving days could be over, unless its controllers at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory can extricate it from a sticky situation: Spirit is stuck in the Martian sand.

Perfect Shot

Dave stood over his tee shot on the 450 yard 18th hole for what seemed an eternity. He waggled, looked up, looked down, waggled again, but didn't start his back swing.

Finally his exasperated partner asked, "What is taking so long?"

"My wife is watching me from the clubhouse balcony," Dave explained. "I want to make a perfect shot."

"Good lord," his companion exclaimed. "You don't have a snowball's chance in hell of hitting her from here."

Camel's Questions

A mother and baby camel are talking one day when the baby camel asks,
"Mom why have I got these huge three toed feet?"
The mother replies,
"Well son, when we trek across the desert your toes will help
you to stay on top of the soft sand".
"OK" said the son.
A few minutes later the son asks,
"Mom, why have I got these great long eyelashes?"
"They are there to keep the sand out of your eyes on the trips through the desert",
"Thanks Mom" replies the son.
After a short while, the son returns and asks,
"Mom, why have I got these great big humps on my back??"
The mother, now a little impatient with the boy replies,
"They are there to help us store water for our long treks across the desert,
so we can go without drinking for long periods."
"That`s great mom, so we have huge feet to stop us sinking,
and long eyelashes to keep the sand from our eyes
and these humps to store water.
But Mom",
"Yes son?" "Why the heck are we in the Singapore Zoo?"

Where's the remotest place on Earth?



Very little of the world's land can now be thought of as inaccessible, according to a new map of connectedness.

The maps are based on a model which calculated how long it would take to travel to the nearest city of 50,000 or more people by land or water.
