When NASA began the launch of astronauts into space, they found out that the pens wouldn't work at zero gravity (ink won't flow down to the writing surface). To solve this problem, They developed a pen that worked at zero gravity, upside down, underwater, on practically any surface … but… it took them one decade and $12 million !!!

And what did the Russians do...?? well……. They used a pencil !

Default Some funnies

Joke 1
A woman was in a coma. She had been in it for months. Nurses were in her room giving her a sponge bath. One of them was washing her private area and noticed that there was a slight response on the monitor when she touched her.

They tried it again and sure enough there was definite movement. They went to her husband and explained what happened, telling him, "As crazy as this sounds, maybe a little oral sex will do the trick and bring her out of the coma."

The husband was skeptical, but they assured him that they'd close the curtains for privacy. The husband finally agreed and went into his wife's room.

After a few minutes the woman's monitor flat lined, no pulse, no heart rate. The nurses run back into the room. "What happened!?" they cried. The husband said, "I'm not sure - I think maybe she choked."
************************************************** *******
Joke 2
The only cow in a small Kentucky town stopped giving milk. The people did some research and found that they could buy a cow just across the state line in Illinois for $200.

They brought the cow from Illinois and the cow was wonderful. It produced lots of milk all of the time, and the people were very happy.

They decided to acquire a bull to mate with the cow to produce more cows like it. They would never have to worry about their milk supply again.

They bought the bull and put it in the pasture with their beloved cow. However, whenever the bull tried to mount the cow, the cow would move away. No matter what approach the bull tried, the cow would move away from the bull and he could not succeed in his quest. The people were very upset and decided to ask the Vet, who was very wise, what to do.

They told the Vet what was happening. "Whenever the bull tries to mount our cow, she moves away. If he approaches from the back, she moves forward. When he approaches her from the front, she backs off. An attempt from the side, she walks away to the other side."

The Vet thought about this for a minute and asked, "Did you by chance, buy this cow in Illinois?"

The people were dumbfounded, since no one had ever mentioned where they bought the cow. "You are truly a wise Vet," they said. "How did you know we got the cow in Illinois?"

The Vet replied with a distant look in his eye, "My wife is from Illinois."
************************************************** *******
Joke 3
A guy walks into the local welfare office, marches straight up to the counter and says, "Hi... You know, I just HATE drawing welfare. I'd really rather have a job."
The social worker behind the counter says, "Your timing is excellent. We just got a job opening from a very wealthy old man who wants a chauffeur and bodyguard for his beautiful nymphomaniac daughter. You'll have to drive around in his Mercedes, but he'll supply all of your clothes. Because of the long hours, meals will be provided. You'll be expected to escort her on her overseas holiday trips. You will have to satisfy her sexual urges. You'll be provided a two-bedroom apartment above the garage. The starting salary is $200,000 a year."

The guy, wide-eyed, says, "You're bull****tin' me!"

The social worker says, "Yeah, well... you started it."
************************************************** *******
Joke 4
A broke blonde decides to ask God for help. "Dear Lord," she prays, "if I don't get some cash, I'm gonna lose everything. Please let me win the lottery."

Lottery night comes, but the blonde doesn't win. She prays even harder, saying, "God, why have you forsaken me? My children are starving. Please just let me win this once."

Suddenly there is a blinding flash of light, and the blonde hears God speak.

"Sweetheart, work with me on this," he says. "Buy a ticket."

Default Use of a Condom

Two old ladies are outside their nursing homes, having a drink and a smoke, when it starts to rain. One of the old ladies pulls out a condom, cuts off the end, puts it over her cigarette, and continues smoking.

MAUDE: What in the heck is that?

MABEL: A condom. This way my cigarette doesn?t get wet.

MAUDE: Where did you get it?

MABEL: You can get them at any drugstore.

The next day, Maude hobbles herself into the local drugstore and announces to the pharmacist that she wants a box of condoms.

The pharmacist, obviously embarrassed, looks at her kind of strangely (she is after all, over 80 years of age), but very delicately asks what brand of condom she prefers.

?Doesn?t matter, Sonny, as long as it fits on a Camel.?

The pharmacist fainted

Default Ever stop and wonder?

Did you ever stop and wonder......

Who was the first person to look at a cow and say, "I think I'll
squeeze these pink dangly things here, and drink whatever comes

Who was the first person to say, "See that chicken there... I'm
eat the next thing that comes outta it's bum."

Why do toasters always have a setting so high that could burn the
a horrible crisp, which no decent human being would eat?

Why is there a light in the fridge and not in the freezer?

Why do people point to their wrist when asking for the time, but
don't point to their bum when they ask where the bathroom is?

Why does your Obstetrician, Gynaecologist leave the room when you
undressed if they are going to look up there anyway?

Why does Goofy stand erect while Pluto remains on all fours?

Can blind people see their dreams? Do they dream??

If quizzes are quizzical, what are tests? (This one kills me!!!!)

If corn oil is made from corn, and vegetable oil is made from
vegetables, then what is baby oil made from?

If electricity comes from electrons, does morality come from

Why do the Alphabet song and Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star have the

Stop singing and read on . . . . . .. . . . .

Do illiterate people get the full effect of Alphabet Soup?

There was this guy sitting on a park bench muttering to himself and
He would mutter, then spit, mutter, then spit, he would say, "Damn, that
sonofabitch can drive", then spit, "Damn, that sonofabitch can drive",
then spit, "Damn that sonofabitch can drive", then spit.

A man sits down next to him and asks him, "What's going on here?
You keep saying, "Damn that sonofabitch can drive, then you spit".
"Well", says the guy, "my friend just got a brand new sports car, so he
calls me and asks me if I want to go for a ride.
So I say sure, why not?"
He picks me up and we drive up to the mountains. After we have lunch, we
start back down the mountain and his brakes go out!!

He's pumping the pedal, and nothing!! So now we're picking up speed and
the road is all twisty and curvey.
We're going faster and faster and it's hard to stay on the road. I've
got my fingers embedded in the dashboard, and I'm pleading with him to
do something!!

We're going about 90 mph now, with a sheer cliff on our right, a 500
foot drop on the other side, an 18 wheeler right on our ass, and an
overturned motorhome right in front of us. Well, I figure this is it!

I just knew we were gonna die! So I turn to him and said... "Buddy, if
you can get us outta this, I'll give you the best damn blow job you've
ever had!"

Default Good Advice

DON'T waste money on expensive ipods. Simply think of your favourite tune
and hum it. If you want to switch tracks, simply think of another song you
like and hum that instead.

CINEMA goers. Please have consideration for pirate DVD viewers by having a
p*** before the film starts

RAPPERS. Avoid having to say 'know what I'm sayin' all the time by actually
speaking clearly in the first place.

DON'T waste money on expensive paper shredders to avoid having your
identity stolen. Simply place a few dog poos in the bin bags along with
your old bank statements.

WORRIED that your teeth will be stained after a heavy night drinking red
wine? Simply drink a bottle of white wine before going to bed to remove the

SOLDIERS. Invest in a digital camera to avoid all that court martial
tomfoolery after a trip to Trueprint.

MURDERERS. Need to dispose of a body? Simply parcel it up and post it to
yourself via DHL. You will never see it again.

BURGLARS. When fleeing from the police, run with your right arm sticking
out at 90 degree angle, wrapped in a baby mattress, in case they set one of
their dogs on you.

EMPLOYERS. Avoid time-consuming job interviews by immediately tossing 90
per cent of the applicants' CVs into the bin.

MEN. When listening to your favourite CD, simply turn up the sound to the
volume you desire; then turn it down three notches. This will save your
wife from having to do it.

GAMBLERS. For a new gambling opportunity, try sending a 50 to yourself by
Royal Mail.

BANGING two pistachio nutshells together gives the impression that a very
small horse is approaching.

BLIND PEOPLE. Give yourself at least a chance of seeing something by not
wearing heavy dark glasses all the time.

GRATED cheddar cheese from the supermarket can be squashed tightly together
with the fingers to produce a block of cheese, ready for slicing or

ALCOHOL makes an ideal substitute for happiness.

DRIVERS. If a car breaks down or stalls in front of you, beep your horn and
wave your arms frantically. This should help the car start and send them on
their way.

PREVENT burglars stealing everything in the house by simply moving
everything in the house into your bedroom when you go to bed. In the
morning, simply move it all back again.

CAR THIEVES. Don't be discouraged when nothing is on view. All the
valuables may be hidden in the glove box or under a seat.

DEPRESSED people. Instead of attempting suicide as a 'cry for help', simply
shout 'Help!' thus saving money on paracetamol, etc.

MOTORISTS. Avoid getting prosecuted for using your phone whilst driving.
Simply pop your mobile inside a large shell and the police will think you
are listening to the sea.

JEREMY Beadle. When selling DVDs on your TV advert, hold the disks in your
bigger hand so that they do not appear to be the size of laser disks.

SHOES last twice as long if only worn every other day.

SINGLE men. Convince people that you have a girlfriend by standing outside
Etam with several bags of shopping, looking at your watch and occasionally
glancing inside.

BOIL an egg to perfection without costly egg timers by popping the egg into
boiling water and driving away from your home at exactly 60mph. After 3
miles, phone your wife and tell her to take the egg out the pan.

ALCOHOLICS. Don't worry where the next drink is coming from. Go to the pub,
where a large selection is available at retail prices.

McDONALD'S. Make your brown carrier bags green so they blend in with the
countryside after they've been thrown out of car windows.

Friends of Women:

A wife was not at home for a whole night. So she tells her husband, the very next morning, that she stayed at her (girl) friend's apartment overnight. So the husband calls 10 of her best (girl) friends and none of them confirm that she was with them.

Friends of Men:

A husband was not at home for a whole night. So he tells his wife the very next morning, that he stayed at his friend's apartment over night. So the wife calls 10 of his best friends and 5 of them confirm that he stayed at their apartments that night and another 5 are claiming that he is still with them!!
