Smiles

Postby vivian maxine on February 23rd, 2016, 9:10 am 

I can't find the "laughter is..." section but these aren't the greatest laughs anyway. Just a couple of gentle smiles to start the day.

NYT had an article about scientists who were trying to show that cockroaches could be good models for robots that crawl through rubble to locate victims. Scientists at University of California, Berkeley, were commenting on the extraordinary abilities of the American cockroach. At the end was the usual "No cockroaches were injured in these experiments. We ran and flew them before and after the measurements and there was no difference in performance." The reporter then closed his story with "Besides, who wants to hurt a cockroach? :-) (New York Times Large Print Weekly, 15 Feb. 2016)

A closer to home smile: I registered at a science magazine web site for their newsletter. An instant email asked me to "click here" to confirm my email address. I clicked "here" and received a second email of congratulations. Fine? Nope. The next day I received a third email telling me that, when I registered, I forgot to include my email address and should please "go here" and do so. Huh?

If that isn't enough, even Schrodinger's cat is getting into the act. An explanation of Schrodinger's experiment says the experiment was imaginary and "no animals were harmed". ("50 Physics Ideas" by Joanne Baker)

Sorry, out of smiles now. Have a good day. Viv

There never was a cat which made me feel much better about Schroedinger.

If you know cats -- yes. He'd have been out of there in no time. Amazing creatures they are.

This last reading is the first time I found out why Schrodinger did the experiment. Always before, it just explained his experiment. Never told why he did it. Better story now.

One day two blondes are hanging out and they see that it is time to go home. So they both go to the car and see that the keys are inside and they have no way to get inside. The one blonde finds a hangar and bends it in a way to where she could unlock the car. All of a sudden dark clouds overlap the sky and the blonde doing nothing says hurry up and unlock the car the top is open.

Yes in context you are right, but if you are a little sick, laughter is the best medicine. If you are really sick, medicine is the best medicine. And of coarse, if you are really, really sick? Back to laughing.

The same can be applied if you somehow change the definition of sick = to how bad your circumstances are. When life all goes to hell sometimes, there is nothing left to do but laugh at how ridiculously bad things are.

A driver was stuck in a traffic jam on the highway outside Canberra.
Nothing was moving. Suddenly, a man knocks on the window.

The driver rolls down the window and asks, "What's going on?"

"Terrorists have kidnapped the entire Lower House and Senate at Parliament
House, and they're asking for a $100 million dollar ransom. Otherwise, they
are going to douse them all in petrol and set them on fire. We are going
from car to car, collecting donations."

"How much is everyone giving, on an average?" the driver asks.

The man replies, "Roughly a litre."

Heh heh, Dave. Here's one....



A police officer called the station on the radio.

"I have an interesting case here. An old lady shot her husband for stepping on the floor that she just mopped."

"Have you arrested the woman?"

"Not yet. The floor is still wet."

A lady goes to her priest one day and tells him, 'Father, I have a problem. . . I have two female parrots,

But they only know to say one thing.'


'What do they say?' the priest asked.


They say, 'Hi, we're hookers! Do you want to have some fun?'


'That's obscene!' the priest exclaimed,


Then he thought for a moment. . . . .

'You know,' he said, 'I may have a solution to your problem. I have two male talking parrots, which I have taught to pray and read the Bible . . .

Bring your two parrots over to my house, and we'll put them in the cage with Francis and Peter.


My parrots can teach your parrots to pray and worship,
And your parrots are sure to stop saying. . . "That phrase" . . . In no time.'


'Thank you,' the woman responded, 'this may very well be the solution.'


The next day,
She brought her female parrots to the priest's house. . . .


As he ushered her in,
She saw that his two male parrots
were inside their cage holding rosary beads and praying...


Impressed,
She walked over and placed her parrots in with them. . .


After a few minutes,
The female parrots cried out in unison:

Hi, we're hookers! Do you want to have some fun?'


There was stunned silence . . .


Shocked, One male parrot looked over at the other male parrot and says,


'Put the beads away, Frank . . . Our prayers have been answered!
