Just a short note

And it'll probably get deleted after a while.   For those interested in news of the sequel to UDM, it's still on the drawing board. I haven't even sent it to my beta because, quite frankly, I haven't been able to work on it in months. Hopefully that will change in the next little while.   For those who wrote my email address and asked if I'd put it up somewhere else, the answer is 'no'. GA is the only place I post my stories. When it gets to posting stage, rest assured it'll be easy to find.

Imponderables

1. When an agnostic dies, does he go to the "great perhaps"? 2. Why is the time of day with the slowest traffic called rush hour? 3. Do you think Houdini ever locked his keys in his car? 4. Why is there a road sign that says "Braille Institute, Next Exit"? 5. Can atheists get insurance for acts of God? 6. If procrastinators had a club would they ever have a meeting? 7. If the #2 pencil is the most popular, why is it still #2? 8. Have you ever wondered why just one letter makes all the dif

Fun but useless trivia

American car horns beep in the tone of F.   Donkeys kill more people annually than plane crashes.   1 in every 4 Americans has appeared on television.   You burn more calories sleeping than you do watching television.   Oak trees do not produce acorns until they are fifty years of age or older.   The first product to have a bar code was Wrigley's gum.   The king of hearts is the only king without a mustache.   A Boeing 747s wingspan is longer than the Wright brother's first flight.

A little forum humor

Found on a gaming website:       How many posters does it take to change a light bulb?   1 to change the light bulb and post that the light bulb has been changed.   14 to share similar experiences of changing light bulbs and how the light bulb would have been changed differently.   7 to caution about the dangers of changing light bulbs.   1 to move it to the Lighting section.   2 to argue then move it to the Electricals section.   7 to point out spelling/grammar errors in posts a

Believe it or not, it's the law!

A list of oddball laws in effect in the United States.       Alabama: -Bear wrestling matches are prohibited. -Wearing a fake moustache that causes laughter in church is illegal. -Opening an umbrella on a street is considered an offense, for fear of spooking horses.   Alaska: -Waking a sleeping bear for the purpose of taking photographs is illegal. Shooting a bear is not. -Pushing a moose out of an airplane is considered an offense. -Flamingos are not allowed in barber shops.   Ari

An interesting social experiment....

A man sat at a metro station in Washington DC and started to play the violin; it was a cold January morning. He played six Bach pieces for about 45 minutes. During that time, since it was rush hour, it was calculated that thousands of people went through the station, most of them on their way to work.   Three minutes went by and a middle aged man noticed there was a musician playing. He slowed his pace and stopped for a few seconds and then hurried up to meet his schedule.   A minute later,

Airline Humor

After every flight, pilots fill out a form called a 'gripe sheet', which conveys to the mechanics problems encountered with the aircraft during the flight that need repair or correction. The mechanics read and correct the problem, and then respond in writing on the lower half of the form what remedial action was taken, and the pilot reviews the gripe sheets before the next flight.   Never let it be said that ground crews and engineers lack a sense of humor. Here are some actual logged maintena

2008 Stella Awards

For those unfamiliar with these awards, they are named after 81 year-old Stella Liebeck who spilled hot coffee on herself and successfully sued the McDonald's in New Mexico where she purchased the coffee. You remember: she took the lid off the coffee and put it between her knees while she was driving. Who would ever think one could get burned doing that, right?   That's right; these are awards for the most outlandish lawsuits and verdicts in the U.S. You know, the kinds of cases that make you
