STRESS TEST

I am not sure exactly how it works, but this is amazingly accurate. Read the full description before looking at the picture.

The picture below has 2 identical dolphins in it.

It was used in a case study on stress level at St. Mary's Hospital. Look at both dolphins jumping out of the water.

The dolphins are identical.

A closely monitored, scientific study of a group revealed that in spite of the fact that the dolphins are identical, a person under stress would find differences in the two dolphins.

If there are many differences found between both dolphins, it means that the person is experiencing a great amount of stress.

Look at the photograph and if you find more than one or two differences you may want to take a vacation.

SHAW bows to GLBT demands


OUTtv files complaint against SHAW thru the CRTC

SHAW TV recently bowed to pressure from the GLBT community to move the specialty channel 'OUTtv' from Channel 370 - which is where SHAW puts their porn stations like 'Hustler' and 'Playboy', into a more respectable channel lower in the spectrum - in Saskatoon - it is now 128. The GLBT community and 'OUTtv' were disappointed that SHAW lumped our specialty channel in with porn. 'OUTtv' is a GLBT channel that features everything from Travel shows to medical advice to movies. Certainly no XXX shows of any kind.

Visit the 'OUTtv' Website to find out more about this interesting and informative channel. Click here.

Sometimes we only
live for the here
and now
Sometimes we're lonely
Sometimes we feel we
need a place to be
grounded
Or fly away again

I will fly away again
I will fly away again

Why are we feeling
something's familiar
around us?
Are we just dreaming?
Always we search for
the answers but
nothing is found
We'll fly away again

I will fly away again
I will fly away again

I feel rain pouring down
I wait to rot away
Live again
Here forever
The spiral never ends

Rot away
Live again
Here forever
The spiral never ends

I feel rain pouring down
I wait to rot away
Live again
Here forever
The spiral never ends

Rot away
Live again
Here forever
The spiral never ends

It never ends

I will fly away again
I will fly away again
I will fly away again
I will fly away again

Ever had one of those days?

CHECK OUT THESE TIRES !

SEE THROUGH TIRES
Radical new tire design by Michelin. The next generation of tires. They had a pair at the Philadelphia car show.

These tires are made in South Carolina, USA.

Yes, those are 'spoke' like connections to the inner part of the tire from the outside tread 'wrap!' The next picture shows how odd it looks in motion.....

Makes you wonder how the ride feels doesn't it?

These tires are airless and are scheduled to be out on the market very soon.
The bad news for law enforcement is that spike strips will not work on these.

Radical new tire design by Michelin
Just think of the impact on existing technology:
A. no more air valves...
B. no more air compressors at gas stations...
C. no more repair kits...
D. no more flats...
These are actual pictures taken in the South Carolina plant of Michelin.

Lynyrd Skynyrd Keyboardist Billy Powell Dead at 56


Billy Powell of Lynyrd SkynyrdBilly Powell, the only keyboardist Lynyrd Skynyrd ever had, died last night at his home near Jacksonville, Florida. He was 56. No cause of death has been announced, and a post on the official Synyrd Website reads, “A Great Loss — Beloved Pianist for the Lynyrd Skynyrd Band, Billy Powell, passed away last night. We will post more info shortly. The family and band request your respect and understanding during this difficult time. Thank you.” The band is canceling upcoming shows and directing fans to its Website for tour updates.

Powell first joined Skynyrd in 1973 after serving as the band’s roadie for a year. His keyboard work features prominently on the band’s debut (pronounced ‘leh-’nerd ’skin-’nerd), with Powell credited for crafting the intro for their epic anthem “Free Bird” (Number 191 on Rolling Stone’s Greatest Songs of All Time). After impressing Ronnie Van Zant with his work on the song, Powell was officially invited to join the band, and remained a member from their debut album until 1977’s Street Survivors.

Powell survived the 1977 plane crash that took the lives of singer Ronnie Van Zant, guitarist Steve Gaines, backup singer Cassie Gaines and other crew members. Despite suffering injuries including facial lacerations and nearly losing his nose, Powell was the first to be discharged from the hospital and was the only member to attend his bandmates’ funerals. After Skynyrd, Powell joined the Christian rock band Vision, but reunited with Skynyrd after a decade-long hiatus for some concerts in 1989, and ultimately remained with the band until now. In May, Skynyrd played their first-ever gig at New York’s Madison Square Garden with Kid Rock.

Powell and the rest of his Lynyrd Skynyrd bandmates were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2006. With Powell’s death, guitarist Gary Rossington becomes the lone surviving original Skynyrd member touring with the band.

Very Punny!


"I was decidedly leery of the area of land set aside to house the bovines. Cow wards never accomplish anything."

HYUK!

The couple left the gynecologist's office with the wife in tears. They were just told that she could never become pregnant. They would never have the family they both desired so fervently.

Suddenly, a masked man appeared before them. "I think I can help you," he said, handing them a
card.

"Why are you masked?" the husband asked.

"Because the government has declared our activities illegal. Go to the address on this card. The doctor will take a scrapping from one of your mouths and culture it. In less than a year, we will have your baby for you."

"This is the answer to our prayers!" the wife exclaimed. Then she turned to thank the stranger but he was gone. "Who do you think that was?" she asked her husband who answered, "That was the Clone Arranger"

HYUK!

'tis better to have loved a short person than never to have loved a tall :o}

HYUK!

I call my dog V.O. because he's such a good licker

HYUK!

There were three medieval kingdoms on the shores of a lake. There was an island in the middle of the lake, over which the kingdoms had been fighting for years. Finally, the three kings decided that they would send their knights out to do battle, and the winner would take the island.

The night before the battle, the knights and their squires pitched camp and readied themselves for the fight. The first kingdom had 12 knights, and each knight had five squires, all of whom were busily polishing armor, brushing horses, and cooking food. The second kingdom had twenty knights, and each knight had 10 squires. Everyone at that camp was also busy preparing for battle. At the camp of the third kingdom, there was only one knight, with his squire. This squire took a large pot and hung it from a looped rope in a tall tree. He busied himself preparing the meal, while the knight polished his own armor.

When the hour of the battle came, the three kingdoms sent their squires out to fight (this was too trivial a matter for the knights to join in).

The battle raged, and when the dust had cleared, the only person left was the lone squire from the third kingdom, having defeated the squires from the other two kingdoms, thus proving that the squire of the high pot and noose is equal to the sum of the squires of the other two sides.

HYUK!

My friend opened a dry-cleaning business next door to the convent. He knocked on the convent door and asked the Mother Superior if she had any dirty habits.

HYUK!

If you suffer from kleptomania, should you take something for it?

HYUK!

I'm a cruel man
I throw rocks at birds
and I leave no tern unstoned.

WOO-HOO!

Just when you thought all the good ideas were taken
