Jokes of the Day (November 24, 2014)

Little Johnny was sitting in class doing math problems when his teacher picked him to answer a question, "Johnny, if there were five birds sitting on a fence and you shot one with your gun, how many would be left?" "None," replied Johnny, "cause the rest would fly away." "Well, the answer is four," said the teacher, "but I like the way you're thinking." 

Little Johnny says, "I have a question for you. If there were three women eating ice cream cones in a shop, one was licking her cone, the second was biting her cone and the third was sucking her cone, which one is married?" "Well," said the teacher nervously, "I guess the one sucking the cone." "No," said Little Johnny, "the one with the wedding ring on her finger, but I like the way you're thinking."

A blonde and a lawyer are seated next to each other on a flight from LA to NY. The lawyer asks if she would like to play a fun game? The blonde, tired, just wants to take a nap, politely declines and rolls over to the window to catch a few winks. The lawyer persists and explains that the game is easy and a lot of fun. He explains, "I ask you a question, and if you don't know the answer, you pay me $5.00, and vice versa. " 

Again, she declines and tries to get some sleep. The lawyer, now agitated, says, "Okay, if you don't know the answer you pay me $5.00, and if I don't know the answer, I will pay you $500.00." This catches the blonde's attention and, figuring there will be no end to this torment unless she plays, agrees to the game. 

The lawyer asks the first question. "What's the distance from the earth to the moon?" The blonde doesn't say a word, reaches into her purse, pulls out a $5.00 bill and hands it to the lawyer. "Okay" says the lawyer, "your turn." She asks the lawyer, "What goes up a hill with three legs and comes down with four legs?" The lawyer, puzzled, takes out his laptop computer and searches all his references, no answer. He taps into the air phone with his modem and searches the net and the library of congress, no answer. Frustrated, he sends e-mails to all his friends and coworkers, to no avail. After an hour, he wakes the blonde, and hands her $500.00. The blonde says, "Thank you," and turns back to get some more sleep. The lawyer, who is more than a little miffed, wakes the blonde and asks, "Well, what's the answer?" Without a word, the blonde reaches into her purse, hands the lawyer $5.00, and goes back to sleep. And you thought blondes were dumb.

Little Johnny is always being teased by the other neighborhood boys for being stupid. Their favorite joke is to offer Johnny his choice between a nickel and a dime Little Johnny always takes the nickel. One day, after Johnny takes the nickel, a neighbor takes him aside and says, "Johnny, those boys are making fun of you. Don't you know that a dime is worth more than a nickel, even though the nickel's bigger?" Johnny grins and says, "Well, if I took the dime, they'd stop doing it, and so far I've made $20!"

Joke, Gif, & Meme {3 Funnies} of the Day (October 28, 2014)

JoKE
Three engineers and three accountants were traveling by train to a conference. At the station, the three accountants each bought tickets and watched as the three engineers bought only one ticket. 

"How are three people going to travel on only one ticket?" asked an accountant. 

"Watch and you'll see", answered an engineer. 

They all boarded the train. The accountants took their respective seats, but the three engineers all crammed into a rest room and closed the door behind them. Shortly after the train departed, the conductor came around collecting tickets. He knocked on the restroom door and said, "Ticket, please". 

The door opened just a crack and a single arm emerged with a ticket in hand. 

The conductor took it and moved on. 

The accountants saw this and agreed it was a quite clever idea. So, after the conference, the accountants decide to copy the engineers on the return trip and save some money (being clever with money, and all that). When they got to the station, they bought a single ticket for the return trip. To their astonishment, the engineers didn't buy a ticket at all. 

"How are you going to ride without a ticket"? said one perplexed accountant. 

"Watch and you'll see", answered an engineer. 

When they boarded the train, the three accountants crammed into a restroom and the three engineers crammed into another one nearby. The train departed. Shortly afterward, one of the engineers left his restroom and walked over to the restroom where the accountants were hiding. He knocked on the door and said, "Ticket, please."

Quick Note

My tags haven't been working of late, so just if you were wondering why cats and dogs are under 'deer', etc..

5 virtual roller coaster rides that will give you chills!

I handpicked these myself and I nearly fell out of my chair watching these!






If you didn't find this thrilling, you have no sense of fear. None. 

Where Is the Fastest Roller Coaster?

Is the fastest roller coaster at the top of a mountain, so that it uses gravity to give it speed? Or maybe it’s near the equator where Earth spins the fastest?
Click HERE to see link
Roller coasters don’t need to be at the top of a mountain or near the equator to give them speed. Engineers have designed them to go fast no matter where they are. Let’s take a look at some of the fastest roller coasters in the world:
  • If you’ve ever ridden a roller coaster, you’ve probably felt a “sinking feeling” in the pit of your stomach when the coaster plummeted down a steep hill. That feeling is caused by the sudden lack of forces pushing on your body. The acceleration forces of the roller coaster counteract the normal sensations of gravity and, just like that, you — and all of the stuff inside you, such as your stomach — feel weightless.
  • So where should you go if you want to experience the wildest roller coasters in the world? If you’re looking for speed, head to the United Arab Emirates in the Middle East. The Ferrari World Abu Dhabi amusement park is home to the Formula Rossa, which is the world’s fastest roller coaster at 149.1 miles per hour!
  • If you’re looking for a tall roller coaster with a massive drop, visit Six Flags Great Adventure in New Jersey. The Kingda Ka is the #1 roller coaster in the world for both height (456 feet) and drop (418 feet). The world’s longest coaster is the Steel Dragon 2000 in Nagashima Spa Land in Japan. Its total length is just over 8133 feet (over a mile and a half long!).
  • Today, the two major types of roller coasters are wooden and steel. Wooden roller coasters are similar to traditional railroad tracks. Cars travel on tracks mounted to wooden beams. Massive support structures are needed, so wooden coasters tend to be less flexible. Most of a wooden coaster’s exciting motion is up and down. Steel roller coasters, on the other hand, have a much greater range of motion. Steel coasters run on tracks made of long steel tubes that can be made in many shapes, including twists and corkscrews. Steel coasters can easily tilt riders in all sorts of wild and exciting directions. Because steel coasters can be seamlessly welded together, they also tend to have a smoother ride.
Today, there are about 2,000 roller coasters operating around the world. Over 90% of them are steel coasters. Some of them feature new and daring designs, such as coasters that you ride lying flat so that you feel like you’re flying!

Saint Spotlight - St. Gianna Molla














Saint Gianna Beretta Molla
lived from October 4, 1922 to April 28, 1962. Born in Magenta, Italy, she was the tenth of the thirteen children in her family. At three years old, her family moved to Bergamo. Gianna began her doctoral study in Milan. She received her medical diploma in 1949, and after a while, though she wished to join her missionary brother in Brazil, chronic illness forced her to continue her practice in Italy.

Gianna Molla was an Italian wife and mother as well as being a pediatrician. She married in 1955 and bore four children. After delivering her fourth child, she died of septic peritonitis.

After a miracle involving both a pregnant woman and her still-to-be-born baby, Gianna was beatified by Pope John Paul II. The pregnant woman had prayed to St. Gianna for help and the baby was saved from death due to lack of amniotic fluid in the woman's body.  The beatification was on April 24, 1994, and St. Gianna Molla was officially canonized as a saint on May 16, 2004. 

St. Gianna is best known for refusing an abortion & a hysterectomy, despite knowing it could result in her death.

She is the patron saint of mothers, physicians, and unborn children.

Thanks be to God!

Happy Thanksgiving!!!



What are you thankful for?

I do have a lot of things to be thankful for. I am thankful for my home, my family, my friends, and my joyous (at most times) life... And it's a holiday so my dad's home! But I'm still forgetting one very, very, very important thing to say.

Thanks be.. to God!!







Between Heaven & Earth by Eric Walters - a book review




Details
Title: Between Heaven and Earth
Author: Eric Walters
Series: Seven (The Series)
First Published: January 1st, 2012
Average Page Count: 245 pages
Recommended Age Range: 10 - 16






Summary
When DJ's beloved grandfather dies, DJ and his cousins each receive a personal letter. In the letter DJ received from his grandfather, it is his grandfather's last request that he scatter his ashes on the peak of the tallest mountain in Africa.

Can DJ climb Mount Kilimanjaro and scatter his grandfather's remains... between heaven and earth?

My Thoughts on this Book
I read this book for a book club I had created with some friends and friends' friends, and it was one of my friend's friend who chose this book for the club to read. At first I questioned the book from its title and summary, but after reading it, these thoughts were diminished. I liked how it was written and it was an adventurous book, and I like these types of books. Even though the title suggests that the book would be religious, it had no background as such. It was a little awkward to read about a boy of almost eighteen carrying his grandfather's 'remains', but otherwise the book was quite good, and I would recommend it.

My Rating & Other Notes
I shall rate this book 8/10, and I think the age range that I find on other sources is quite accurate (around 10 - 16 though I'm sure anyone above 10 years old can read it, not stopping at sixteen or eighteen years of age.)

Other Reviews on this Book
Positive
http://amysmarathonofbooks.ca/between-heaven-and-earth/
http://back-to-books.blogspot.ca/2013/10/305-between-heaven-and-earth-by-eric.html

Negative
You might want to try to search yourself for some.. I couldn't find any..

I hope you find this review helpful and enjoyable!
