Some people were fawkin’ around doing a seance and wouldn’t you know it… the :twisted: DEVIL :twisted: popped into the room… in a state of terror… they all made a run for the 2nd floor window and jumped out and hit the pavement! :shock:

    Doctor, Doctor, I feel like a pair of Curtains.
    Well pull yourself together.

    Doctor, Doctor, everyone keeps ignoring me.
    Next please!

    Doctor, Doctor, I keep thinking there are two of me.
    One at a time please.

    Doctor, Doctor, some day’s I feel like a tee pee and other day’s like a wig wam.
    You’re to tents.

    Doctor, Doctor, I keep thinking I’m invisible.
    Who said that?

    Doctor, Doctor, My little boy has just swallowed a roll of film!
    Hmmmm… Let’s hope nothing develops.

    Doctor, Doctor, I can’t get to sleep.
    Set on the edge of the bed and you’ll soon drop off.

    Doctor, Doctor, I’ve lost my memory!
    When did this happen?
    When did what happen?

    Doctor, Doctor, I fell like a deck of cards.
    I’ll deal with you later.

    Doctor, Doctor, my son has swallowed a pen, what should I do?
    Use a pencil until I get there.

    Hearing Problems?
    A man told his doctor, “I don’t think my wifes hearing is good as it used to be. What shall I do?”

    The doctor replied, “Try this test first. When your wife is at the sink going dishes, stand fifteen feet behind her and ask her a question.If she doesn’t respond, keep moving closer, asking the same question until she hears you.”

    He went home and saw his wife preparing dinner. Standing fifteen feet behind her,he asked, ” What’s for dinner, honey?”

    Hearing no reply he moves up to 10 feet behind her and repeated the same question.

    Still no reply, so he moves up to five feet. Still no answer.

    Finally he stood directly behind her and said, “Honey,what’s for dinner tonight?”

    “FOR THE FOURTH TIME,I SAID CHICKEN, you’s better get your hearing checked!”

    Scrubbing Bulkheads
    I was scrubbing the bulkhead on the USS Kitty Hawk one Sunday morning when the loud-speaker announced:
    “Religious Services. Maintain Silence about the decks. Discontinue all unnecessary work.”

    An hour later, the opinion many of us held regarding our daily routine, was confirmed with the following announcement:
    “Resume all unnecessary work. ”

    And The Fairy Said…
    A married couple in their early 60s were out celebrating their 35th wedding anniversary in a quite, romantic little restaurant.

    Suddenly, a tiny yet beautiful fairy appeared on their table and said, ” For being such an exemplary married couple and for being faithful to each other for all this time, I will grant you a wish. “Ooh, I want to travel around the world with darling husband, said the wife.”

    The fairy moved her magic stick and-abracadabra!-two tickets for the new QM2 luxury liner appeared in her hands.

    Now it was her husband’s turn. He thought for a moment and said, ” Well all this is very romantic, but an opportunity like this only occurs once in a life time, so, I’m sorry my love, but my wish is to have a wife 30 years younger than me. ”

    The wife, and the fairy, were deeply disappointed, but a wish is a wish. So the fairy made a circle with her magic stick and-abracadabra!-the husband became 92 years old.

    The moral of the story: “Fairies are female.”

    Well see you all later! Peace!

    :cool: Cool vid and expansion of my vocab. Hey, check THISSS out, Marina… Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve been reading a VERY, VERY interesting book! “The Weekend That Changed Wall Street; An Eyewitness Account” [I give it FIVE STARS!¡!¡], by Maria Bartiromo (she’s the CNBC anchorwoman who hosts “The Closing Bell”). About an hour ago I finished chapter 8. I decided to review the intro and Chapter 1 as I ate my late lunch…
    In chapter one, “Riding High Before The Fall” (which, by the way, is pleasantly littered with alliterations), Maria talks about a lunchtime conversation with Steve Schwarzman (a TOP Wall Steet dude); “I can do a 30 to 40-billion dollar deal in a very short time without COVENANCE [all caps by me, DELL]“. By the way, I’m also “double-reading” this book via my iPhone 4 iBooks purchase so I can highlight important passages, so I highlighted that word and tapped ‘dictionary’… “No definition found” :shock:
    I looked it up in my WEBSTER’s New World College Dictionary. All I could find was ‘covenant’.
    So, you see what happened here, Marina¿ This rich dude was feeling ‘uppity’ and decided to throw in a “high-fallootin’” word to make himself look EVEN MORE important. THERE’S NO SUCH WORD AS COVENANCE :x !¡!¡!¡ So, I’m just putting this out there to put Schwarzman ON BLAST for using I guess what you could call a ‘non-word’ or a mistaken neologism. Incidentally, all while I’ve been using that word, my iPhone 4 has continually offered ‘covenant’ as a correction. I guess now I’m gonna have to go to settings to clear the dictionary in case it has stored that word in it’s dictionary [I know the correction means it has refused it, I was just being "fake-aggravated").
    By the way [btw] I’m “double reading” this book because I checked it out from the library in mid-September (it was due back Oct.5, now I’m acquiescing to paying a dime per day as I finish it up!

    Wouldn’t it be cool, Marina, to do a show putting people ON BLAST for intentionally using a bogus word…¿ Just puttin’ that out there… mmmmMMMMMWAH!

    ***LossForWords Mini-Lesson: Trachea***

    Once there was a nation, Trakia, where the people were known for their habit of clearing their throats. Or at least, that’s how it sounded when they spoke. (Kind of like Welsh, actually. :roll: ) This trait became so well known that Trakia (spelling changed to “trachea,” “ch” as in “Christmas”) became the word for “windpipe.”

    It’s true, I tell you! :mrgreen:

    See Trakia (I chose an article in British so it would be easy to understand.) :lol:

  19. pairadots says:

    If the Bible is where we learned of angels, why do we always picture them with wings? The times angels have had any description in the Bible it only refers to them having the appearance of a man. So where do the wings come from? I’m assuming it was an artist’s idea? Sorry just thinking out loud. I have weird thoughts.

    • Evan Owen says:

      Your “weird thoughts” are “free inquiry,” the source of much of our best etymological work on these pages. :smile:

      Did you know, for example, that the words “English” and “England” derive from “angel”? When the Saxons began invading Britain, the native Welsh referred to them as angel o’r uffern “angel from hell,” later shortened to a sarcastic “Angle” (the Welsh pronunciation of “angel.”) “Angle” then developed into “Angle-ish” (English) and “Angle-land” (England). :mrgreen:

      See where “free inquiry” can lead you? :razz:

    Hello every one how are you all doing? Good I hope.I’m tired of mulching uo leaves, all well eventually they will all fall down. So what’s up in class? Is there someone out there?If so give me a holler back! Here are some jokes…
    New Suit
    Abraham wanted a new suit, so he bought a new piece cloth then tried to locate a tailor. The first tailer he visited looked at the cloth and measured Abraham, then measured the cloth, then smiled and said, ” There is enough cloth to make a pair of trousers, a coat, and a vest, please come back in a week to pick up your suit.”

    A week later Abraham came to take his new suit, and saw the tailor’s son wearing trousers made of the same cloth.

    Perplexed,he asked, ” Just how could you make a full suit for me and trousers for your son, when the other tailor could only make one suit out of the cloth?”

    It’s very simple, “Replied the tailer, “The other tailor has two sons.”

    Saying Grace
    A Sunday School teacher was trying to explain about saying grace before meals. One of the pupils was the young son of the minister of that church, so she started the discussion by asking him, “Jerry what does your father say when the family sits done for diner?”

    Jerry answered, “Dad says, ‘ Go easy on the butter,kids, it’s 3 dollars a pound!”

    Young Ones In Love?
    A young Scottish lad and lassie were sitting on a low stone wall, holding hands, and just gazing out over the loch. For several minutes they sat silently, then finally the girl looked at the boy and said, ” A penny for your thoughts, Angus. ”

    “Well I was thinkin’… perhaps it’s aboot time for a wee kiss.”

    The girl blushed, then leaned over and kissed him lightly on the cheek. The he blushed.

    Then the two turned once again to gaze out over the loch. After awhile the girl spoke again, “Another penny for your thoughts, Angus.”

    The young man knit his brow ” Well now, he said, ” my thoughts are a bit more serious this time.”

    “Really?” said the girl in a whisper, filled with anticipation.

    “Aye, ” said the lad, ” Din’na ye think it’s about time ye pay me that first penny?”

    Computer Error
    An Oldie but goodie…
    I was having trouble with my computer. So i called Bob the computer guy, to come over. Bob clicked a few buttons and solved the problem. He gave me a bill for a minimum service call.

    As he was walking away, I called after him, “So what was wrong?” He replied, ” It was an Id Ten T Error.”

    I didn’t want to appear to be stupid, but none the less inquired, “An,ID Ten T Error? What’s that in case I need to fix it again? ”

    The computer guy grinned… “Haven’t you ever heard of an ID Ten T Error before?”
    “No,” I replied.

    “Write it down,”he said, “and I think you’ll figure it out.”

    So I wrote out…ID10T

    I used to like Bob!

    Dear Marina,
    Thanks for the nice video. I thought defenestration was a play on words from the Windows OS. To remove junk from memory was to “un-Window” it. :razz:

      [][][]XXXX[][][]Roman and “Arabic” Numerals
      The use of Roman numerals has been mathematically obsolete for more than 1100 years. :x preface :smile:

      The form of Roman numeration used today was established during the Middle Ages in Western Europe. It is derived from the systems actually used in Roman times, but with certain improvements. The basic Roman numerals as used today are:

      I = 1 V = 5 X = 10 L = 50 C = 100 D = 500 M = 1000 ~~~~{UNIT}/i knit-to (II)2 THULE, too! :lol: The Hindu-Arabic numeration system was known in Europe by 1000, but at first it didn’t make much of a dent in the use of Roman numerals. During the 1100′s the “Arabic” numerals were a topic of great interest among European scholars, and several translations of the Algebra appeared. In 1202,

      Leonardo of Pisa (ca. 1180-1250)

      published a famous book Liber abaci explaining and popularizing the Hindu-Arabic system, the use of the zero, the horizontal fraction bar, and the various algorithms of the Algebra.

    • Samuel says:

      after 30 year of war they decided to end up with this war. cause there was no winning and no losing side, just too loosers. they could had been fighting 30 year longer, with maybee the same result. only a third of the population within this war survived it in some regions.

      “Separation of Church and State?”
      the protestant side collaborated more with the unreligious rulers, aristocrates and so. the Catholics had religious and secular power combined and where fighting against the with the protestants allied counts.
      but secularisation happend much later.

    Ugliest Man In The World

    One day, Hercules,Snow White, and the Quazzimodo(Hunch Back Of Notre Dame)were standing around talking.Hercules spoke up and said, ” I bet I’m the strongest man in the world. ”

    Snow White then looked around and said, ” Well I bet I’m the most beautiful person in the world. ”

    Quazzimodo looks around and quietly said, ” I suppose I’m the ugliest man in the world. ”

    An old man who had been listening in on there conversation said, ” There is a psychic on top of that hill up there, why don’t you each go in there and ask her yourself.”

    The three friends agreed and they hiked to the top of the hill. Hercules went in first and came out a few minutes later and said, ” I was right, I’m the strongest man in the world. ”

    Snow White went in next. She came out a few minutes later and said, ” I was also right, I’m the most beautiful person in the world. ”

    Finally it was Quazzimodo’s turn.He went in and after a few minutes he came out scratching his head: He looks up at his friends and said, ” Who is Dennis Rodman?

      King Louis XI is a wise and old king and Frollo is the Chief Justice. Frollo gazes on the gypsy girl, Esmeralda, in the church during Fool’s Day and sends Quasimodo to catch her. Quasimodo, with the girl, is captured by Phoebus, Captain of the Guards, who frees the girl. The courts sentence Quasimodo to be flogged, and the only one who will give him water while he is tied in the square is Esmeralda. Later, at a party of nobles, Esmeralda again meets both Frollo, who is {bewitched} by her, and Phoebus. When Phoebus is stabbed to death, Esmeralda is accused of the murder, convicted by the court and sentenced to hang. Clopin, King of the Beggars*, Gringoire the Husband of Esmeralda, and Quasimodo, the bellringer, all try different ways to save her from the gallows…
