Witness Vs Lawyer

A witness to an automobile accident was testifying.
The following exchange took place between the lawyer and the witness:
The lawyer: “Did you actually see the accident?”
The witness: “Yes, sir.”
The lawyer: “How far away were you when the accident happened?”
The witness: “Thirty-one feet, six and one quarter inches.”
The lawyer (thinking he’d trap the witness):
“Well, sir, will you tell the jury how you knew it was exactly that distance?”
The witness: “Because when the accident happened I took out a tape and measured it.
I knew some stupid lawyer would ask me that question.”

Sports

A middle management executive has to take on some sport by his doctor’s orders, so he decides to play tennis.

After a couple of weeks his secretary asks him how he’s doing.

“It’s going fine,” the manager says. “When I’m on the court and I see the ball speeding toward me, my brain immediately says, ‘To the corner! Back hand! To the net! Smash! Go back!’”

“Really? What happens then?” the secretary asks.

“Then my body says, ‘Who? Me? You must be kidding!’

Top 10 Format Wars

A format war occurs when two incompatible versions of a similar technology begin to compete against one another in the market. In almost every case, one of the two formats wins out in the end, either because of a better marketing strategy or a superior product, leaving groups of unlucky consumers with an obsolete technology.

Format wars are most common in the realm of audio and video technology, but they've also involved computers, digital media storage, and even something as basic as electricity. Here are ten of the most famous examples of format wars.

Dumbest kid in the world?

A young boy enters a barber shop and the barber whispers to his customer, “This is the dumbest kid in the world. Watch while I prove it to you.”

The barber puts a dollar bill in one hand and two quarters in the other, then calls the boy over and asks, “Which do you want, son?”

The boy takes the quarters and leaves.

“What did I tell you?” said the barber. “That kid never learns!”

Later, when the customer leaves, he sees the same young boy coming out of the ice cream store. “Hey, son! May I ask you a question? Why did you take the quarters instead of the dollar bill?”

The boy licked his cone and replied, “Because the day I take the dollar, the game is over! “

First Train Ride

An old man was sitting with his 25 year old son in the train.
The train was about to leave the station.
All passengers are settling down in their seat.
As the train started, the young man was filled with lots of joy and curiosity.
He was sitting on the window side.
He put out one hand and feeling the passing air, he shouted,
"Papa see all the trees are going behind."
The old man smiled and admired his sons’ feelings.
Beside the young man was one couple,
sitting and listening to all the conversation between father and son.
They were little awkward with the attitude of the twenty-five-year-old
behaving like a small child.
Suddenly the young man again shouted,
"Papa see the pond and animals. Clouds are moving with the train."
The couple was watching the young man embarrassingly.
Now it started raining and some of the water drops touched the young man's hand.
He was filled with joy and he closed his eyes.
He shouted again, "Papa it's raining!
The water is touching me, see papa?"
The couple couldn't help themselves and asked the old man.
"Why don't you visit the doctor and get treatment for your son?"
The old man said,
”Yes, We are coming from the hospital today;
my son got his eyesight for first time in his life."

35 Secrets your pilot won’t tell you

We asked 17 pilots from across the country to give us straight answers about maddening safety rules, inexplicable delays, the air and attitudes up there—and what really happens behind the cockpit door. What they told us will change the way you fly.

Here are just a few from the list:

“At some airports with really short runways, you’re not going to have a smooth landing no matter how good we are: John Wayne Airport; Jackson Hole, Wyoming; Chicago Midway; and Reagan National.” -Joe D’Eon, a pilot at a major airline

“Regional airlines aren’t held to the same safety standards as the majors: Their pilots aren’t required to have as much training and experience, and the public doesn’t know that.” -Captain at a major airline.

“It’s one thing if the pilot puts the seat belt sign on for the passengers. But if he tells the flight attendants to sit down, you’d better listen. That means there’s some serious turbulence ahead.” -John Greaves, airline accident lawyer and former airline captain, Los Angeles

“There is no safest place to sit. In one accident, the people in the back are dead; in the next, it’s the people up front.” -John Nance

“The smoothest place to sit is often over or near the wing. The bumpiest place to sit is in the back. A plane is like a seesaw. If you’re in the middle, you don’t move as much.” -Patrick Smith

“We don’t make you stow your laptop because we’re worried about electronic interference. It’s about having a projectile on your lap. I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to get hit in the head by a MacBook going 200 miles per hour.” -Patrick Smith

“The general flow of air in any airplane is from front to back. So if you’re really concerned about breathing the freshest possible air or not getting too hot, sit as close to the front as you can. Planes are generally warmest in the back.” -Tech pilot at a regional airline, Texas

“Remember this before you complain about the cost of a ticket: Fares today are about the same as they were in the 1980s.” -Patrick Smith

Subway Sleeper: Meet Inertia



via
"charlie and spike are two kittens with myotonia congenita, otherwise known as 'fainting goat' syndrome. at the slightest sound, the kittens respond by collapsing and falling into a rigid paralysis which lasts about a minute before they return to normal. This condition has hardly ever before been diagnosed in a cat, is rarely found in dogs and is more common in goats. The kittens are able to walk, but they cannot run or jump. aside from this they are normal. sad to report that the black and white kitten (spike) died on 27th october from respiratory failure."

Season Tickets

My wife was reading a newspaper, while her I was engrossed in a magazine. Suddenly, she burst out laughing.

“Listen to this,” she said. “There’s a classified ad here where a guy is offering to swap his wife for a season ticket to the stadium.”

“Hmmm,” I said to her, not looking up from my magazine.

Teasing me, she said, “Would you swap me for a season ticket?”

“Absolutely not,” I said.

“How sweet,” she said. “Will you tell me why not?”

“Season’s more than half over,” I said.
