Advice

Advice

Got this from a friend - Obviously, he is a smoker.

Anyway, worth reading - Read on!

Once a person was smoking at airport.........A gentleman came over to him & asked him:

How many cigarettes do you smoke a day?

Smoker: Why are you asking such question?

Gentleman replied : If you had collected that money & invested it instead of smoking, the plane which is in front of you, would have been  yours.

Smoker asked that gentleman: Do you smoke?

Gentleman:- No.

Smoker asked:- does that plane belong to you?

Gentleman replied:- No.  

Smoker: Thanks for your kind advice, but that plane is mine.

[Smoker's Name - Vijay Mallya

Pl note - This post is not a recommendation for folks to smoke. Nor to say that smokeing makes you rich. Merely to show the value and relevance of most advice!

Adopting a common language for Europe

Adopting a common language for Europe

This is a gem that I got from a friend.

Enjoy reading:

Dear folks,

This is a real gud vun.

Murali/LG

The European Commission has just announced an agreement whereby English will be the official language of the European Union rather than German, which was the other possibility.

As part of the negotiations, the British Government conceded that English spelling had some room for improvement and has accepted a 5- year phase-in plan that would become known as "Euro-English".

In the first year, "s" will replace the soft "c". Sertainly, this will make the sivil servants jump with joy. The hard "c" will be dropped in favour of "k". This should klear up konfusion, and keyboards kan have one less letter. There will be growing publik enthusiasm in the sekond year when the troublesome "ph" will be replaced with "f". This will make words like fotograf 20% shorter .

In the 3rd year, publik akseptanse of the new spelling kan be expekted to reach the stage where! more komplikated changes are possible.

Governments will enkourage the removal of double letters which have always ben a deterent to akurate speling.

Also, al wil agre that the horibl mes of the silent "e" in the languag is disgrasful and it should go away.

By the 4th yer people wil be reseptiv to steps such as
replasing "th" with "z" and "w" with "v".

During ze fifz yer, ze unesesary "o" kan be dropd from vordskontaining "ou" and after ziz fifz yer, ve vil hav a reil sensibl riten styl.

Zer vil be no mor trubl or difikultis and evrivun vil find it ezi tu understand ech oza. Ze drem of a united urop vil finali kum tru.

Und efter ze fifz yer, ve vil al be speking German like zey vunted in ze forst plas.

If zis mad you smil, pleas pas on to oza pepl.

Monastic Life
A young monk arrives at the monastery. He is assigned to helping the other monks in copying the old canons and laws of the church by hand...
He notices, however, that all of the monks are copying from copies, not from the original manuscript...

So, the new monk goes to the Old Abbot to question this, pointing out that if someone made even a small error in the first copy, it would never be picked up! In fact, that error would be continued in all of the subsequent copies...
The head monk, says, "We have been copying from the copies for
centuries, but you make a good point, my son."

He goes down into the dark caves underneath the monastery where the original manuscripts are held as archives in a locked vault that hasn't been opened for hundreds of years. Hours go by and nobody sees the Old Abbot...
So, the young monk gets worried and goes down to look for him.
He sees him banging his head against the wall and wailing.

"We missed the R!"
"We missed the R!"
"We missed the R!"
His forehead is all bloody and bruised and he is crying uncontrollably.
The young monk asks the old abbot, "What's wrong, father?"
With a choking voice, the old abbot replies,
"The word was...

CELEBRATE!"

A man had great tickets for the World Cup Final. As he sits down, another man comes down and asks if anyone is sitting in the empty seat next to him.
"No," he says. "The seat is empty."
"This is incredible!" says the other man.
"Who in their right mind would have a seat like this for the World Cup Final, the biggest sporting event, and not use it?"
"Well, actually, the seat belongs to me. My wife was supposed to come with me, but she passed away. This is the first World Cup Final we haven't been to together since we got married.
"Oh ... I'm sorry to hear that. That's terrible. But couldn't you find someone else, a friend or relative, or even a neighbour to take the seat?"
The man shakes his head.

"No. They're all at the funeral..."
