    President Bush Visit

    Hot 1 year ago

    President George W. Bush is visiting an elementary school today and he visits one of the 4th grade classes. They are in the middle of a discussion related to words and their meanings.
    The teacher asks the President if he would like to lead the class in the discussion of the word, "tragedy." So the president asks the class for an example of a "tragedy."
    One little boy stands up and offers, "If my best friend, who lives next door, is playing in the street and a car comes along and runs him over, that would be a tragedy."
    "No" says Bush, "that would be an accident."
    A little girl raises her hand: "If a school bus carrying 50 children drove off a cliff, killing everyone involved, that would be a tragedy."
    "I'm afraid not" explains the President. "That's what we would call a GREAT LOSS."
    The room goes silent. No other children volunteer. President Bush searches the room. more...

    Dave Barry On College

    Hot 5 years ago

    College is basically a bunch of rooms where you sit for roughly two thousand hours and try to memorize things. The two thousand hours are spread out over four years; you spend the rest of the time sleeping and trying to get dates.
    Basically, you learn two kinds of things in college:
    1. Things you will need to know in later life (two hours).
    2. Things you will not need to know in later life (1,998 hours).
    These are the things you learn in classes whose names end in -ology, -osophy, -istry, -ics, and so on. The idea is, you memorize these things, then write them down in little exam books, then forget them. If you fail to forget them, you become a professor and have to stay in college for the rest of your life.
    It's very difficult to forget everything. For example, when I was in college, I had to memorize - don't ask me why - the names of three metaphysical poets other than John Donne. I have managed to forget one of them, but I still remember that the other two were more...

    Redneck Joke

    Hot 3 years ago

    Two rednecks decided they weren't going anywhere in life, and thought they should go to college to get ahead.
    The first redneck went in to see the counselor, who told him to take Math, History, and Logic.
    "What's Logic?" the first redneck asked. The professor answered by saying, "Let me give you an example. Do you own a weed eater?" "I sure do." said the first redneck.
    "Then I can assume, using logic, that you have a yard," replied the professor.
    "That's real good!" said the redneck.
    The professor continued, "Logic will also tell me that since you have a yard, you also own a house."
    Impressed, the redneck said, "Amazin!"
    "And since you own a house, logic dictates that you have a wife," continued the professor.
    "That's Betty Mae! This is incredible!" The redneck is obviously catching on.
    "Finally, since you have a wife, logically I can assume that you are more...

    Balls to your partner

    Hot 4 years ago

    An American General, a Russian General and a British General are standing on
    the deck of a ship watching war exercises. (OK, OK, so this is an old one..)
    The topic of discussion turns to human courage, and the Russian General boasts,
    "Russians are the most courageous people on Earth!"
    Upon which the American (naturally) challenges him: "Oh YEAH?"
    The Russian says, "Sure! Here, Yuri! Jump off the deck (into the freezing
    Atlantic) and swim around the ship!"
    Yuri marches off without a word, and does as he is told. The Russian turns
    around and says: "See, there's an example of courage!"
    The American has to top this, so he calls up one of his underlings and gives
    him the order:
    "Jack, Jump off the main mast into the ocean, and swim around the ship
    seven times!"
    Poor Jack goes off without a murmur, and he too does as he is told. The
    American General says: "Now top that for more...

    EEC Language

    Hot 6 years ago

    International communications made easy... It's about time somebody sorted the English language out.: )

    In order to improve the language we correspond in, here is an article that will clear the picture:

    Having chosen English as the preferred language in the EEC, the European Parliament has commissioned a feasibility study in ways of improving efficiency in communications between Government departments.

    European officials have often pointed out that English spelling is unnecessarily difficult - for example, cough, plough, rough, through and thorough. What is clearly needed is a phased programme of changes to iron out these anomalies. The programme would, of course, be administered by a committee staff at top level by participating nations.

    In the first year, for example, the committee would suggest using' s' instead of the soft' c'. Sertainly, sivil servants in all sities would resieve this news with joy. Then the hard' c' could be replaced more...
