We Didn't Start The Fire

Excellent Presentation

This is really neat, but make sure you put it on full screen so you can see the words

Whether you are a Billy Joel fan or not, you probably remember his great song, "We Didn't Start The Fire." Here it is, set to pictures... very, very cool.

Sit back and enjoy a review of 50 years of history in less than 3 minutes! Thanks to Billy Joel and some guy from the University of Chicago with a lot of spare time and Google.

The older you are, the more pictures you will recognize. But it's great at any age.

8-year-old girl with dentist phobia died after teeth surgery

A schoolgirl with a phobia of dentists died after refusing to eat or speak when she woke from surgery to find all her milk teeth had been removed.
Sophie Waller, eight, never spoke again after the surgery, when dentists at the Royal Hospital Truro in Cornwall decided to take out all of her milk teeth to save her future trauma.
Her family is now demanding to know why an inquest has not yet been held into what caused her death in December 2005.
She had been taken to the hospital after breaking a tooth, but refused for days to open her mouth to doctors, traumatized by a phobia she developed three years earlier aged five after a dentist cut her tongue.
Following the operation she would only eat watermelon and would not speak to anyone. After three weeks her parents took her home, where she died a week later.
Her mother Janet Waller criticized the hospital, which has since been ranked as Britain's worst, and said that she had been given no answers as to what had killed her daughter.

I still hate going to the dentist even if it's a female with a funny mask.

Garfield on the oil crisis

A lot of folks can't understand how we came to have an oil shortage here in our country.
Well, there's a very simple answer.
Nobody bothered to check the oil.
We just didn't know we were getting low.
The reason for that is purely geographical
Our OIL is located in
Coastal Florida
Coastal Louisiana
But, our DIPSTICKS are located in Washington, DC !!!

Any questions ???

NO? I didn't think so.




Thanks Richard

Her parents must be very proud of her.

Stolen boat leaves pupils swimming past crocs to get to school

A South African village is demanding that a bridge be built across a crocodile-infested river to stop children swimming it to get to school. Students as young as seven have been making the crossing for two months since the community's boat was stolen.
"There are about 70 households on that side of the river but there are no buses and no-one owns a car."
To cross safely would require a 20km (12 miles) detour to get to the school. On school days, 150 children from Sahlumbe village in the heart of rural Zululand swim across the river in their underwear using rubber tires and buckets to keep afloat and to keep their school uniforms and books dry. The older ones help the small ones who cling to the tires.
The children, some of whom also attend Mabizela High School, often arrive tired and unable to concentrate.

Man gets the "SHIT" scared out of him.

A Christchurch man was rudely interrupted yesterday when a four-wheel-drive vehicle crashed into his conservatory, knocking him off the toilet.
The vehicle went backwards down a 10m bank about 6.55am yesterday after a builder working next door left the handbrake half-on.
"He came back to his vehicle and found it next door, basically," said Sergeant Kim Reid, of the Christchurch police."The vehicle's been parked and he's left it there. The vehicle has then run down the hill, gone through some trees and into this gentleman's property."Asked how the builder might be feeling, the man said: “What about me, I got knocked off the toilet? I got a hell of a fright."

At least the men's room doesn't smell

Woman reaching for cell phone drives into Oakland Estuary

OAKLAND, Calif. -- A woman swam to safety early Thursday after her car careened off a roadway and splashed into the Oakland-Alameda Estuary, floating to rest underneath a home built on stilts above the waterway.

Authorities said the car went into the water a little after 6:00 a.m. after its driver lost control when she reached for her cell phone near the intersection of Alameda Avenue and Fruitvale.

The 22-year-old female driver, on her way to work at a nearby Brinks office, was able to knock out a window, climb out of the floating vehicle and swim to safety. Onlookers said she came ashore still cradling her coffee cup.

The name of the driver has not been released.

Nipple rings cause airport security issue
A Texas woman demands apology who said she was forced to remove a nipple ring with pliers in order to board an airplane has called for an apology by federal security agents and a civil rights investigation.
She asked whether she could instead display her pierced breasts in private to the female agent. But several other male officers told her she could not board her flight until the jewelry was out, she said.
She was taken behind a curtain and managed to remove one bar-shaped piercing but had trouble with the second, a ring. Still crying, she informed the TSA officer that she could not remove it without the help of pliers, and the officer gave a pair to her.

The ten most unreasonable parking fines of all time
Most drivers vent a little steam when they get a parking ticket - and the number who appeals successfully proves they're often right to be annoyed.
But a new list of the most ridiculous parking tickets ever issued shows that almost nothing will stop the determined parking warden from slapping a ticket on a vehicle. Indeed, it suggests a host of ways that officious officials can take advantage of drivers when they are at their most vulnerable.

Judge Sentences Three Men to Learn English or Go to Jail
WILKES-BARRE, Pa. — A judge known for creative sentencing has ordered three Spanish-speaking men to learn English or go to jail.
The men, who faced prison for criminal conspiracy to commit robbery, can remain on parole if they learn to read and write English, earn their GEDs and get full-time jobs, Luzerne County Judge Peter Paul Olszewski Jr. said.
The men, Luis Reyes, Ricardo Dominguez and Rafael Guzman-Mateo, plus a fourth defendant, Kelvin Reyes-Rosario, all needed translators when they pleaded guilty Tuesday. "Do you think we are going to supply you with a translator all of your life?" the judge asked them.
