Its no 50 and somehow we've reached the 50th floor

Don't know how, but by some freak phenomena,
after only 4 months,
This blog has reached the 50th post.
It just demonstrates the fact that some people have nothing to do in their lives..
If only that was true
50 is a magical number.
A milestone that's been marked in pages of history.
1) 50 is the IQ of the entire Australian Parliament combined.
2) 50 is the average number of hours, a marraige lasts in Hollywood.
3) 50 was the age I was when I was thought of as “over the hill”
4) 50 % is John Howards approval rating in his family.
5) 50 billion Dollars is what the Kerry Stokes [CHANNEL 7] empire is worth
yet, Stokes looks like he hoards the lot
6) 50 is the number of times Alexander Downer reminded Australians
that there were WMD's in Iraq.(50 is also the number of times the
ex Iraqi foreign minister had told the press that the allied infidels
were never going to catch Saddam Hussein - a day before he got caught)
.7) 50 years ago + 2 James Dean died
8) 50 is how many music vids are on the blog. How many have you watched?
9) 50 is the number of people who stayed awake at the last Dockers game.
10) And finally, 50 is the number of posts I intended to make fun of John Howard,
but edited most of them as to not to appear repititive.
So here's hoping that my brain won't corrode before the 100th post....
50 Ways to leave your lover "The Muppets"

Have you ever seen a water bridge over a river?

WaterBridge in Germany. What a feat!

Six years, 500 million euros, 918 meters long.......
now this is engineering!

This is a channel-bridge over the River Elbe and joins
the former East and West Germany, as part of the unification project.
It is located in the city of Magdeburg, near Berlin.
The photo was taken on the day of inauguration.

To those who appreciate engineering projects,
here's a puzzle for you armchair engineers and physicists:

Q: Did that bridge have to be designed to withstand the additional weight of ship and barge traffic, or just the weight of the water?

A: It only needs to be designed to withstand the weight of the water!

Why? A ship always displaces an amount of water that weighs
the same as the ship,
regardless of how heavily the ship may be loaded.

Iwas browsing some ww2 photos on the net
recently and saw this fascinating and enchanting picture
taken in London in 1940

What Smells?

If you are living with a blonde,
be careful where you leave your laptop

Once upon a time a young lad was born without a belly button.
In its place was a golden screw.
All the doctors told his mother there was nothing they could do.
He would just have to live with it.
The years passed, and they were hard for the boy,
as everyone who saw the screw made fun of him.
Then one day when he was fully grown, a mysterious stranger
told him that a swami in Tibet could get rid of the screw for him.
The next day the man took his life's savings and bought a ticket for Tibet.
When he arrived, he was told to sleep in a room at the top of the mountain.
While he slept, a purple fog floated in through
an open window bearing in its mist a golden screwdriver.
In just moments, the screwdriver had been used to remove the golden screw,
and then it had floated out the window.
The next morning, the man noticed the screw lying beside his bed.
Gently, he reached to his navel and discovered that,
indeed, the screw was gone.
Jubilant, he leaped out of bed
and his butt fell off.

Man walks free after sheep refuses to testify
I'm not making this up.
A man who was accused of having sex with a sheep was able to walk free
after the animal was unable to testify.
The man, from the Netherlands,
was reported to police after a farmer caught him having sex with a sheep.
But the case was thrown out of court
as the sheep couldn't take to the stand to testify it didn't want to have sex
and had suffered emotional stress.
Under Dutch law,
Minister of Justice Ernst Hirsch Ballin
has said he plans to change the law to make bestiality a criminal offence.

Vegetarian Humour
What do you call a vegetarian with diarrhea?
A Salad Shooter.

"When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bicycle.
Then I realized that the Lord doesn't work that way,
so I stole one and asked him to forgive me."

This guy drives past a outside dunny in the country
and sees an antenna on the roof of it.
So he stops and goes to the house that owns the Dunny.
He asks the owner,
"Why is there an antenna on the roof of that Dunny?"
The people reply, "Some West Coast Eagle fans rented it out."
As he's driving back that way one day not too long after that,
he notices that now there are two antennas on the Dunny.
So he stops and talks to the people who own it.
"Why are there two antennas on that outhouse now?"
The people reply,
"Some Docker fans rented the bottom half of it!"
[That should get me some hate mail]

Here are two clips from the TV show
America's Got Talent that I enjoyed
