Bungee Jumping in Mexico

Alice and Frank are bungee jumping one day and Alice says to Frank, "You know, we could make a lot of money running our own bungee jumping service in Mexico." Frank thinks that this is a great idea so they pool their money and but everything they need; tower, bungee cord, insurance etc...
They travel to Mexico and begin to set up on the square. As they are constructing the tower, a crowd begins to assemble. Slowly, more and more people gather to watch them work. When they had finished, they thought it would be a good idea to give the crowd a demonstration.
Alice suits up and jumps. She bounces at the end of the cord, but when she comes back up, Frank notices that she has some cuts and scrapes. Unfortunately, Frank isn't able to catch her and she falls and bounces up again. This time she is bruised and bleeding. Again Frank misses her and the cycle repeats itself. This time she comes up barely concious with obvious broken bones. Frank finally catches her. He asks if the cord was too long. Barely able to speak, Alice gasps, "No. The bungee cord was fine. It was the crowd. What the hell is a Pinata?"

This incident took place in Dublin a while ago and although it sounds like an Alfred Hitchcock take, it's true according to local towns people.

John Bradford, a Dublin University student, was walking on the side of the road hitchhiking on a dark and stormy night. The rain and fog was so severe he could only see a few feet ahead of him. There were no cars in sight and John was beginning to panic.

Suddenly, he saw headlights approaching. The car was travelling very slowly and came to a stop in front of him.
Desperate for shelter and without thinking about it, John got into the car and closed the door.

Only then did he realize there was nobody behind the wheel and the engine wasn't running. The car started moving forward slowly. John looked at the road ahead and knew the car was approaching a sharp curve. Scared that the car would go over the embankment, John started to pray for his life.

Just before the car hit the curve a hand appeared through the drivers side window and turned the wheel.

John was paralysed with fear and terror as he watched the hand repeatedly come through the window though it never touched or harmed him.

Shortly thereafter, John saw the lights of a Pub ahead.
Gathering all his strength, he opened the car door, jumped out, and ran towards the Pub.

Soaking wet and out of breath, he rushed inside and started telling everyone about the horrible experience he just had.
A silence enveloped the Pub when everyone realized he was crying.......and wasn't drunk.

Suddenly, the Pub door opened and two other people walked
in to escape the stormy night. They, like John, were soaking wet and out of breath. Looking around, and seeing John Bradford sobbing at the bar, one said to the other, 'Look Paddy, there's that f*@#* idiot that got in our car while we were pushing it.'

Joke thread

Four people were flying over the Atlantic, Obama, Harper, Gord Brown and a boy scout. Over Newfoundland, the pilot came on the PA and said " We have an engine problem. You are going to have to bail out . Only one problem, we only have three parachutes. You are going to have to settle among yourselves who gets one."
Obama said "I'm running the most powerful country in the world. I have to survive." He grabbed a parachute and bailed out. Harper said "I'm the brains of Canada. I have to live." He grabbed and bailed.
Brown said to the boy scout "What do we do now?" The boy scout replied " Don't worry mister. We still have two parachutes. The brains of Canada just grabbed my packsack."

The Ship's Captain was about to start the morning briefing to his Staff and Ships Officers.

While waiting for the coffee machine to finish its brewing, he decided to pose a question to all assembled. He explained that his wife had been a bit frisky the night before and he failed to get his usual amount of sound sleep. He posed the question of just how much of sex was 'work' and how much of it was 'pleasure?'

A Deck Officer chimed in with 75-25% in favor of work.

A Engineering Officer said it was 50-50%.

A Chief Warrant Officer responded with 25-75% in favor of pleasure, depending on his state of inebriation at the time.

There being no consensus, the Admiral turned to the seaman who was in charge of making the coffee. What was HIS opinion?

With no hesitation, the young seaman responded, "Sir, it has to be 100% pleasure."

The Captain was surprised and, as you might guess, asked why?

"Well, Sir," began the seaman, "if there was any work involved, the officers would have me doing it for them."

Joe Smith started the day early having set his alarm clock

(MADE IN JAPAN ) for 6am.

While his coffeepot


was perking, he shaved with his

electric razor


He put on a

dress shirt


designer jeans



tennis shoes


After cooking his breakfast in his new

electric skillet


he sat down with his



to see how much he could spend today. After setting his



to the radio


he got in his car


filled it with GAS

(from Saudi Arabia )

and continued his search

for a good paying AMERICAN JOB.

At the end

of yet another discouraging

and fruitless day

checking his


(Made In Malaysia ),

Joe decided to relax for a while.

He put on his sandals


poured himself a glass of



and turned on his



and then wondered

why he can't find

a good paying job

Itís been a bit of a challenge; but I finally finished reading the entire internet this morning.

Here's the final page:

The Internet cannot be displayed.
The site you are looking for is not experiencing technical difficulties, it is simply the end of the Internet.

Please try the following:

* Click the Refresh button , with no effect.
* If you typed the page address in the Address bar, then don't worry, it is probably spelled correctly.
* There is no need to check your connection settings, or click the Tools menu, or click Internet Options. Your settings probably match those provided by your local area network (LAN) administrator or Internet service provider (ISP).

That really is not the problem.
* If your Network Administrator has enabled it, Microsoft Windows can examine your network and automatically discover network connection settings. That will not help either. So the link to Detect Network Settings is not set to function. Relax.
This really is the End of the Internet
* You could Click the Help menu and then click About Internet Explorer - but that won't change a thing.
* If you wish, you could Click the Back Button - not that it will make any difference!
* Click the Bomb button if you think it will help.
It won't.

No Errors Found
This is the end.

I remember when my missus went shopping for blinds and I worked out the transfer of energy from the edges not fitting properly and the amount of heat, in watts, entering the room because of the only moderate reflectivity of the surface. The salesperson got very shitty when I said the advertised figures didn't stack up. I was dragged away before it ended in a full scale verbal stoush.
Don't know why people think we have poor people skills. I can talk for hours about lots of things with other engineers. Other people simply haven't taken the effort to understand out language.

It takes your food seven seconds to get from your mouth to your stomach.

One human hair can support 3 kg (6.6 lb).

The average man's penis is three times the length of his thumb.

Human thighbones are stronger than concrete.

A woman's heart beats faster than a man's.

There are about one trillion bacteria on each of your feet.

Women blink twice as often as men.

The average person's skin weighs twice as much as the brain.

Your body uses 300 muscles to balance itself when you are standing still.

If saliva cannot dissolve something, you cannot taste it.

Women reading this will be finished now.

Men are still busy checking their thumbs.
