Apropos of Nothing

More stuff to ponder

Filed under: Fun Stuff,Humour — aproposofnothing @ 8:38 pm

(1) Zero Gravity
When NASA first started sending up astronauts,
they quickly discovered that ball-point pens would not work in zero gravity.
To combat this problem
NASA scientists spent a decade and $12 billion developing a pen
that writes in zero gravity, upside-down,
on almost any surface including glass
and at temperatures ranging from below freezing to over 300 C.
The Russians used a pencil.
Your taxes are due again–enjoy paying them.

(2) The American Constitution
They keep talking about drafting a Constitution for Iraq .
Why don’t they just give them the Ameican one?
It was written by a lot of really smart guys,
and it’s worked for over 200 years.
And, they’re not using it anymore.

(3) Ten Commandments
The real reason that we can’t have the Ten Commandments in a courthouse
is that you cannot post
“Thou Shalt Not Steal,”
“Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery”
and “Thou Shall Not Lie”
in a building full of lawyers, judges and politicians.
It creates a hostile work environment.
