Adding a Little Levity to the Day…

Monday, April 7th, 2008

I came across this video today, and thought you all would enjoy it as well. This is done by a guy named Tim Hawkins, and he is hilarious. You can go to his website and see some of his other work. There are also some more high quality videos on the website.

On a more personal note, yesterday’s post was my 100th for this site. That seems like somewhat of a milestone! I have certainly enjoyed keeping up with the site, and befriending so many out there in the cyber world. I have recently made some changes and gotten some good feedback from a couple of you. To the rest, let me know what you think! Do you all like the new design? Thanks for dropping in, and for reading!

EDIT:  I just discovered today that my new theme is not compatible with Internet Explorer.  Go figure.  5000 WordPress themes, and I choose the ONE that won’t work in both Firefox and Internet Explorer.  I am going to work on finding another template that is similar to this one,  and get it worked up to fit the genre of the blog.  My apologies to those of you who are using IE.

Something Funny…

Friday, January 18th, 2008

I received the following in an email in response to my blog post from a couple of days ago. I thought it was funny, so I thought I would pass it on.

Doctors vs. Gun owners :


Doctors

(A) The number of physicians in the U.S. is: 700,000.
(B) Accidental deaths caused by Physicians per year:
120,000.
(C) Accidental deaths per physician per year: 0.171. (17%)

Statistics courtesy of U.S. Dept of Health Human Services.

Now think about this:

Guns
(A) The number of gun owners in the U.S.: 80,000,000. (Yes, that’s 80 million)
(B) The number of accidental gun deaths per year, all age groups: 1,500.
(C) The number of accidental deaths per gun owner: .000188. (.0188%)

Statistics courtesy of FBI

So, statistically, doctors are approximately 9,000 times more dangerous than gun owners.

Remember, ‘Guns don’t kill people, doctors do.’

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

FACT: NOT EVERYONE HAS A GUN,
BUT ALMOST EVERYONE HAS AT LEAST ONE DOCTOR.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Please alert your friends to this alarming threat.
We must ban doctors before this gets completely out of hand!!!!!

Out of concern for the public at large, I withheld the statistics on lawyers for fear the shock would cause people to panic and seek medical attention!

Attack of the Killer Teddy Bear…

Tuesday, September 26th, 2006

It appears that someone has maliciously murdered 2500 trout.  That’s right, 2500.  Some devious, destructive person has discovered a plan to wipe out a whole pool of trout destined for stocking.  They evidently snuck into the hatchery under the cover of night and cast the unsuspecting Paddington Bear, complete with raincoat and hat, into the stock tank.  This heartless act clogged the drain, leaving the poor defensless trout without much needed oxygen.  There were no survivors.

This account has caused the New Hampshire Fish and Game to issue the warning:  “RELEASE OF ANY TEDDY BEARS into the fish hatchery water IS NOT PERMITTED.” I guess that warning is a day late and a dollar short. 

Was this the action of a crazed animal rights fanatic, determined that if these poor fish could not live free, they were better off dead?  Or was it the actions of misguided sportman, determined that stocked trout harm the natural fisheries, and therefore he was determined to stop the madness?  Maybe it was just a little girl in pony tails, who accidently dropped her teddy bear…but then where’s the fun in that option?

So, no teddy bears in the New Hampshire hatcheries now.  What’s next?  No liquids on airplanes?  What’s the world coming to?
