Because I Am A Man...

Most of these are true, but not all!

Well, this one is, for sure! Yes, I am sick today. I think its the worst flu i've ever had in my life! heh.
"Because I'm a man, when I catch a cold, I need someone to bring me soup and take care of me while I lie in bed and moan.
You're a woman. You never get as sick as I do, so for you, this is no problem."


Thanks Vicki!


Because I'm a man, when I lock my keys in the car, I will fiddle with a coat hanger long after hypothermia has set in.
Calling AAA is not an option. I will win.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Because I'm a man, when the car isn't running very well, I will pop the hood and stare at the engine as if I know what I'm looking at.
If another man shows up, one of us will say to the other, "I used to be able to fix these things, but now with all these computers and everything, I wouldn't know where to start."
We will then drink a couple of beers and break wind, as a form of holy communion.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Because I'm a man, when I catch a cold, I need someone to bring me soup and take care of me while I lie in bed and moan.
You're a woman. You never get as sick as I do, so for you, this is no problem.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Because I'm a man, I can be relied upon to purchase basic groceries at the store, like milk or bread.
I cannot be expected to find exotic items like "cumin" or "tofu."
For all I know, these are the same thing.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Because I'm a man, when one of our appliances stops working, I will insist on taking it apart, despite evidence that this
will just cost me twice as much once the repair person gets here and has to put it back together.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Because I'm a man, I must hold the television remote control in my hand while I watch TV.
If the thing has been misplaced, I may miss a whole show looking for it, though one time I was able to survive by holding a calculator instead.
(applies to engineers only)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Because I'm a man, there is no need to ask me what I'm thinking about. The true answer is always either sex, cars, sex, sports or sex.
I have to make up something else when you ask, so just don't ask.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Because I'm a man, you don't have to ask me if I liked the movie. Chances are, if you're crying at the end of it, I didn't . . . and if you are feeling amorous afterwards . . then I will certainly at least remember the name and recommend it to others.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Because I'm a man, I think what you're wearing is fine.
I thought what you were wearing five minutes ago was fine, too.
Either pair of shoes is fine.
With the belt or without it, looks fine.
It does not make your ass look too big.
It was the pasta and potatoes and margaritas that did that.
Your hair is fine.
You look fine.
Can we just go now?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Because I'm a man, and this is, after all, the year 2007, I will share equally in the housework.
You just do the laundry, the cooking, the cleaning, the vacuuming, and the dishes, and I'll do the rest.
Like wandering around in the garden with a beer, wondering what to do.

James (aka "Justfs")

=)

winners_spotlight.jpg

Behind The Name

So, what is the meaning of your name?
For James, it would be:

"English form of the Late Latin Jacomus which was derived from Ιακωβος
(Iakobos), the New Testament Greek form of יַעֲקֹב (Ya'aqov) (see JACOB).
This is the name of two apostles in the New Testament. The first was
Saint James the Greater, the apostle John's brother, who was beheaded
by Herod Agrippa in the Book of Acts. The second was James the Lesser,
son of Alphaeus. Another James (known as James the Just) is also
mentioned in the Bible as being the brother of Jesus.

Kings of England and Scotland have borne this name. Other famous
bearers include the inventor of the steam engine James Watt, the
explorer Captain James Cook, and the novelist and poet James Joyce."

Thought you might enjoy some puns

An email I got from a subscriber....
Thanks PSLangfit.

If you don't like puns, delete immediately.

REMEMBER: THE ABILITY TO MAKE AND UNDERSTAND PUNS IS THE HIGHEST LEVEL
OF LANGUAGE DEVELOPMENT - REALLY! Here are the 10 first place winners
in the International Pun Contest:

1. A vulture boards an airplane, carrying two dead raccoons. The
stewardess looks at him and says, "I'm sorry, sir, only one carrion
allowed per passenger."

2. Two fish swim into a concrete wall The one turns to the other and
says "Dam!"

3. Two Eskimos sitting in a kayak were chilly, so they lit a fire in the
craft. Unsurprisingly it sank, proving once again that you can't have
your kayak and heat it too.

4. Two hydrogen atoms meet. One says "I've lost my electron." The other
says "Are you sure?" The first replies "Yes, I'm positive."

5. Did you hear about the Buddhist who refused Novocain during a root
canal?
His goal: transcend dental medication.

6. A group of chess enthusiasts checked into a hotel and were standing
in the lobby discussing their recent tournament victories. After about
an hour, the manager came out of the office and asked them to disperse.
"But why?", they asked, as they moved off. "Because," he said, " I can't
stand chess-nuts boasting in an open foyer."

7. A woman has twins and gives them up for adoption. One of them goes to
a family in Egypt and is named "Ahmal." The other goes to a family in
Spain; they name him "Juan." Years later, Juan sends a picture of
himself to his birth mother. Upon receiving the picture, she tells her
husband that she wishes she also had a picture of Ahmal. Her husband
responds, "They're twins! If you've seen Juan, you've seen Ahmal."

8. These friars were behind on their belfry payments, so they opened up
a small florist shop to raise funds. Since everyone liked to buy flowers
from the men of God, a rival florist across town thought the competition
was unfair. He asked the good fathers to close down, but they would not.
He went back and begged the friars to close. They ignored him. So, the
rival florist hired Hugh MacTaggart, the roughest and most vicious thug
in town to "persuade" them to close. Hugh beat up the friars and trashed
their store, saying he'd be back if they didn't close up shop.
Terrified, they did so, thereby proving that only Hugh can prevent
florist friars.

9. Mahatma Gandhi, as you know, walked barefoot most of the time, which
produced an impressive set of calluses on his feet. He also ate very
little, which made him rather frail, and ,with his odd diet, he suffered
from bad breath. This made him ... (Oh, man, this is so bad, it's good)
... A super calloused fragile mystic hexed by halitosis.

10. And finally, there was the person who sent ten different puns to
friends, with the hope that at least one of the puns would make them
laugh.
No pun in ten did.

What can ya say......

155 Useless Facts For Your Enjoyment

Thanks Ashley!


I am sure that you have already posted some of these, but I tried to remember all the things that I learned in my Western Civ. Class. During lectures my instructor would just give us uselss facts to throw us off. Then when we would take exams, the useless facts that he gave us would be on there as a bonus!! So I started writting them down... I hope you can use them!!

1. A rat can last longer without water than a camel.
2. Your stomach has to produce a new layer of mucus every two weeks, otherwise it will digest itself.
3. The Declaration of Independence (the very official copy in the Rotunda of the National Archives) is written on parchment, not paper.
4. The dot over the letter 'i' is called a tittle.
5. A raisin dropped in a fresh glass of soda will bounce up and down continually from the bottom of the glass to the top.
6. A female ferret will die if it goes into heat and cannot find a mate.
7. A 2x4 is actually 1-1/2" x 3-1/2" .
8. 40% of McDonald's profits come from the sales of Happy Meals.
9. Every person has a unique tongue print. (Say "aaah")
10. The 'spot' on 7UP comes from its inventor who had red eyes. He was an albino.
11. 315 entries in Webster's 1996 Dictionary were misspelled.
12. During the chariot scene in 'Ben Hur' a small red car can be seen in the distance.
13. On average, 12 newborns will be given to the wrong parents daily.
14. John Wilkes Booth's brother once saved the life of Abraham Lincoln's son. Irony.
15. Warren Beatty and Shirley MacLaine are brother and sister.
16. Chocolate kills dogs! Chocolate affects a dog's heart and nervous system. A few ounces is enough to kill a small sized dog. (Debated)
17. Daniel Boone detested coonskin caps.
18. Playing cards were issued to British pilots in WWII. If they were captured, the cards could be soaked in water and unfolded to reveal a map for escape.
19. Most lipstick contains fish scales. Yum.
20. Dr. Seuss actually pronounced Seuss such that it sounded like Sue-ice.
21. Ketchup was sold in the 1830s as medicine.
22. Leonardo da Vinci could write with one hand and draw with the other at the same time.
23. During the California Gold Rush of 1849 miners sent their laundry to Honolulu for washing and pressing. Due to the high costs in California during these years it was deemed more feasible to send the shirts to Hawaii for servicing.
24. American Airlines saved $40,000 in 1987 by eliminating one olive from each salad served in first class.
25. The number of possible ways of playing the first four moves per side in a game of chess is 318,979,564,000.
26. Upper and lower case letters are named 'upper' and 'lower', because in the time when all original print had to be set in individual letters, the 'upper case' letters were stored in the case on top of the case that stored the smaller, 'lower case' letters. The proper term for upper case letters is "majuscule" and for lower case it's "minuscule".
27. The printing industry gives us other popular phrases, such as "mind your 'p's and 'q's." The moveable block type had the letters in reverse so they would read correctly when imprinted on paper. Apprentices had to remove the type from the pages and return the blocks to their upper and lower cases. Each drawer in the case held a different size of letters, and each drawer was divided into compartments (called sorts) for each letter. The letters 'p' and 'q' could easily be mistaken, so the master printer would advise their apprentices to mind their 'p's and 'q's. (This is debated. Link.)
28. When the master printer was building a page and discovered that a particular sort was empty, he would get angry. Thus the term "out of sorts".
29. The question mark came from a monk habit of writing the Latin word for question, quo, at the end of sentences. Over time, the letters were written vertically to save space and morphed into the ? we write today. Similarly, the exclamation point came from the Latin word "Lo", meaning something important that should be heeded. (Lo and behold...)
30. Wellfleet, Massachusetts has the only town clock in the world that strikes ship's time. (Rings every half hour, to a maximum of 8 rings at the end of each four hour period.)
31. There are no words in the dictionary that rhyme with the words orange, purple, or silver, or month. (Debated, as I don't think that sliver is a rhyme for silver, or pimple a good rhyme with purple, etc.)
32. The numbers '172' can be found on the back of the U.S. $5 dollar bill in the bushes at the base of the Lincoln Memorial. (New or old? Not sure. Probably the old one.)
33. The very first bomb dropped by the Allies on Berlin during World War II killed the only elephant in the Berlin Zoo.
34. There are four cars and eleven lightposts on the back of a $10 dollar bill.
35. Scissors as we know them today (well, pretty much) were invented in Rome in about 100 AD (or CE, if you want to be politically correct).
36. If one places a tiny amount of liquor on a scorpion, it will instantly go mad and look like it is stinging itself to death. It spasms a lot. :)
37. Most scorpions will glow under black (ultraviolet) light. (?!)
38. Bruce Lee was so fast that they actually had to SLOW a film down so you could see his moves. That's the opposite of the norm.
39. If you have three quarters, four dimes, and four pennies, you have $1.19. You also have the largest amount of money in coins without being able to make change for a dollar.
40. The first CD pressed in the US was Bruce Springstein's 'Born in the USA.'
41. The mask used by Michael Myers in the original Halloween was actually a Captain Kirk mask painted white.
42. The first product Motorola developed was a record player for automobiles. At that time the most known player on the market was the Victrola, so they called themselves Motorola.
43. Roses MAY be red, but violets ARE, indeed, violet.
44. By raising your legs slowly and lying on your back, you can't sink in quicksand. One should carry a stout pole while travelling in quicksand country...when placed under one's back, it helps one to float out of the quicksand.
45. Casey Kasem is the voice of Shaggy on Scooby-Doo.
46. Celery has negative calories! It takes more calories to digest a piece of celery than the celery has in it to begin with. (Mmm, diet food.)
47. Charlie Chaplin once won third prize in a Charlie Chaplin look alike contest.
48. In Gulliver's Travels Jonathan Swift described the two moons of Mars, Phobos and Deimos, giving their exact size and speeds of rotation. He did this more than one hundred years before either moon was discovered.
49. Chewing gum while peeling onions will keep you from crying!
50. Sherlock Holmes NEVER said, "Elementary, my dear Watson." For that matter, Sherlock Holmes never existed in the first place. But the address where he supposedly lived, 221B Baker Street, still gets a lot of fan mail. I am told that there is a desk there that has the sign "Secretary to Mr. Holmes".
51. An old law in Bellingham, Wash., made it illegal for a woman to take more than 3 steps backwards while dancing. (?!)
52. Birds have the right of way on all Utah highways.
53. Sharon Stone was the first Star Search spokesmodel.
54. The glue on Israeli postage stamps is certified kosher.
55. The Guinness Book of Records holds the record for being the book most often stolen from public libraries.
56. Astronauts are not allowed to eat beans before they go into space because passing wind in a spacesuit will damage it.
57. The number one selling CD in history is the third Beatles anthology. It recently beat out the Eagles' "Their Greatest Hits."
58. Bats always turn left when exiting a cave.
59. If you drop a penny off of the Empire State Building, it will be going 106 miles per hour (terminal velocity) when it reaches the ground. Something moving this fast may actually cause head injuries if it lands on you. (OUCH)
60. The original Winnie the Pooh was a real live bear found outside of Winnipeg, Canada, hence the name Winnie.
61. Francis Bacon died in his attempt to find a better way to serve food. He caught a case of pneumonia while attempting to stuff a chicken with snow. Ironically, the chicken survived the ordeal.
62. Dachshunds were originally bred in 1600 to hunt dachs, which is German for badgers. (Historically speaking, 1600 was a slow year.)
63. Houdini's real name was Ehrich Weiss.
64. The first zoo in America was in Philadelphia.
65. Laser is actually an acronym for "Light Amplification by Stimulated Emissions of Radiation."
66. The world's first passenger train made its debut in England in 1825.
67. If you hate our "QWERTY" keyboard layout, blame Christopher Sholes. He changed it from the original in 1873 to lessen the chances of the keys jamming.
68. Napoleon III suffered from ailurophobia, which is a fear of cats.
69. Escalator is one of many words that were originally trademarks but have become ordinary words found in dictionaries. Some other words which were originally trademarks and have now passed into common use are aspirin, autoharp, band-aids, breathalyzer, cellophane, Coke (in some areas, at least), corn flakes, cube steak, ditto, dry ice, dumpster, formica, Frisbee, granola, gunk, jeep, kerosene, Kleenex, mace, nylon, ping-pong (also an onomatopoeia), popsicle, Q-tip, rollerblade, rolodex, Scotch tape, sheetrock, spandex, styrofoam, tabloid, thermos, trampoline, yo-yo, xerox, and zipper.
70. The citrus soda 7-UP was created in 1929; "7" was selected because the original containers were 7 ounces. "UP" indicated the direction of the bubbles. The red dot came from the inventors eyes, he was an albino with red eye!!
71. Mosquito repellents don't repel. They hide you. The spray blocks the mosquito's sensors so they don't know you're there. Also, the powder on the bark of a quaking aspen tree works as a mosquito repellent.
72. Dentists have recommended that a toothbrush be kept at least 6 feet away from a toilet to avoid airborne particles resulting from the flush.
73. The liquid inside young coconuts can be used as substitute for blood plasma.
74. No piece of paper can be folded in half consecutively more than 7 times (doubling factor... you end up folding 27 == 128 sheets of paper).
75. 1 in every 4 Americans has appeared on television. (I have!)
76. You burn more calories sleeping than you do watching television.
77. Oak trees do not produce acorns until they are fifty years of age or older.
78. The first product to have a bar code was Wrigley's gum.
79. The king of hearts on playing cards is the only king without a moustache.
80. A Boeing 747's wingspan is longer than the Wright brother's first flight.
81. Venus is the only planet that rotates clockwise.
82. Apples are more efficient than caffeine in waking you up in the morning. (Go figure.)
83. The little plastic things on the end of shoelaces are called aglets. (Why do you name them?)
84. Most dust particles in your house are made from dead skin.
85. The first owner of the Marlboro Company died of lung cancer. (Hmm, wonder why.)
86. Barbie's full name is Barbara Millicent Roberts.
87. Betsy Ross, Jackie Onassis, JFK, and Daniel Boone have all appeared on Pez dispensers.

92. Rubber bands last longer when refrigerated.
93. Peanuts are one of the ingredients of dynamite.

97. Two-thirds of the world's eggplant is grown in New Jersey.
