You have 7 oranges on a plate, and there are 7 children.
After you give 1 orange to each child, there is still 1 orange left on the plate.

How is this possible?

Rubber Chicken A man is driving down a deserted stretch of highway when he notices a sign out of the corner of his eye… It reads: SISTERS OF ST. FRANCIS HOUSE OF PROSTITUTION 10 MILES

He thinks this is a figment of his imagination and drives on without second thought. Soon he sees another sign which reads: SISTERS OF ST. FRANCIS HOUSE OF PROSTITUTION 5 MILES

Suddenly he begins to realize that these signs are for real and drives past a third sign saying: SISTERS OF ST. FRANCIS HOUSE OF PROSTITUTION NEXT RIGHT

His curiosity gets the best of him and he pulls into the drive. On the far side of the parking lot is a stone building with a small sign next to the door reading: SISTERS OF ST. FRANCIS

He climbs the steps and rings the bell. The door is answered by a nun in a long black habit who asks, ‘What may we do for you! my son?’

He answers, ‘I saw your signs along the highway and was interested in possibly doing business….

‘Very well my son. Please follow me.’ He is led through many winding passages and is soon quite disoriented. The nun stops at a closed door and tells the man, ‘Please knock on this door.’

He does so and another nun in a long habit, holding a tin cup answers the door. This nun instructs, ‘Please place $100 in the cup then go through the large wooden door at the end of the hallway.’ He puts $100 in the cup, eagerly trots down the hall and slips through the door pulling it shut behind him.

The door locks, and he finds himself back in the parking lot facing another sign:

United States Marine Corps – Winter Survival Course Handbook

Knowing how to survive is a hard task on a nice sunny day, imagine if it were the middle of winter or you were in a place where the nights get below freezing… Knowing skills that are taught to the marines could give you the edge and get you through the freezing night or cold weather.

Obviously training and doing the things in this manual will get you the skills needed to survive but at the very minimum you should have this downloaded and on a device where you can get to it.

With electronics I know an EMP will take them out but in realistic terms they are pretty unlikely. So I would suggest having a solar charger to charge your device so you can have this valuable information to hand anytime you need it. Thats why I download all of my PDF’s, books etc to my phone.

A Map of American Slavery

A Map of American Slavery

One of the most important maps of the Civil War was also one of the most visually striking: the United States Coast Survey’s map of the slaveholding states, which clearly illustrates the varying concentrations of slaves across the South. Abraham Lincoln loved the map and consulted it often; it even appears in a famous 1864 painting of the president and his cabinet.

Joke Of The Day: A Cow From Minsk

 Jokes  Comments Off on Joke Of The Day: A Cow From Minsk
Dec 302015
Rubber Chicken The only cow in a small town in Poland stopped giving milk. The people did some research and found that they could buy a cow from Moscow for 2,000 rubles, or one from Minsk for 1,000 rubles. Being frugal, they bought the cow from Minsk.

The cow was wonderful. It produced lots of milk all the time, and the people were amazed and very happy.

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

They bought a bull and put it in the pasture with their beloved cow. However, whenever the bull came close to 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 rabbi, who was very wise, what to do. They told the rabbi what was happening:

“Whenever the bull approaches 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 approach from the side and she just walks away to the other side.”

The rabbi thought about this for a minute and asked:

“Did you buy this cow from Minsk?”

The people were dumbfounded. They had never mentioned where they had gotten the cow.

“You are truly a wise rabbi. How did you know we got the cow from Minsk?”

The rabbi answered sadly, “My wife is from Minsk.”



How To Of The Day: How To Truss A Chicken Without String

FOOD & WINE’s Justin Chapple demonstrates how to truss a chicken without string.


Trussing, or tying up the wings and legs of a chicken, is an important step in roasting a whole bird evenly; it ensures evenly-cooked, moist meat, and prevents anything stuffed inside from falling out. But even if you don’t have kitchen twine on hand, you can still truss a chicken using its own skin.

Food & Wine test kitchen editor Justin Chapple demonstrates the method in the video above. Basically, you’ll want to make an incision into the skin that surrounds the cavity of the chicken, tucking the opposite drumstick into the slit; you’ll then repeat the same technique on the opposite side.

The Death Of The Red Baron

Dec 292015

A brilliant reconstitution of the last fight of Manfred Albrecht Freiherr “The Red Baron”.

Richthofen’s last flight – Cinematic Historical documentary (In game footage from the flight sim “Rise of Flight”).

The story is as factual as I can make it. The only known historical inaccuracies are:

1. Mellersh does claim a Triplane shot down that day, but it was in fact Wolff, and he didn’t “explode”, but returned home and landed safely after spinning towards the ground under Mellersh’s fire.

2. The two seaters depicted in game are not Albatros (as they should be) But DFW’s, not represented in game (yet!) The story should really have RE8’s too…

3. A few of the Jasta colours are incorrectly shown – they are “mixed and matched” to a degree to represent the “Flying Circus”.

The rest is, as it should be, as far as possible, but comments, suggestions towards the much disputed legend of Richthofen’s death are welcome! He was reported to have been pulled alive from the aircraft saying “Kaput”.. But this seems unlikely due to the nature of his wound.
