There's something rotten in Thailand

Thailand is a study in contrasts. Here is a place that will kill drug smugglers yet has the largest sex-trade on the planet. Smoke a joint and you're toast, dress in drag and people will toast you!

Seems they don't have a sense of humor there either, Samak Sundaravej, chosen Monday as the first elected prime minister since a Sept. 2006 coup, has been nicknamed "Mr. Rose Apple Nose" because many claim his nose resembles the fruit. (Apparently drinking is OK.)

Thai sign-language interpreters often indicate prominent facial features as shorthand for dignitaries and during a live broadcast of Monday's parliamentary session, they held their noses between two fingers numerous times to refer to Samak.

This didn't go over well with authorities and the country has now embarked on a campaign to stop the practise among the general population.

That stinks!!!

Say Cheese!

Well I have talked about this, and looked at it a bunch of times, and finally got all the facts and figures back into "Perspective!"

Last year (2007) I had about 50 thousand people log on to my site, of which about half spent more than two minutes each reading it, and a great many of those people commented on the articles.

Almost all the comments (96%)were favourable and they told me what a good job I was doing and how they enjoyed the blog!

Then I looked at the stats for a site called "cheddarcheese" - and found that a site that simply put a camera on a 45 lb. block of cheese and slowly watched it go mouldy drew a total of 1 and 3/4 million people for the same year!!! (1,750,000)

I think I might either kill myself, or all of the ONE AND THREE QUARTER MILLION people who watched the cheese go bad! They obviously have no culture. (Get it! Culture!!!!!! ha ha ......................sorry!)

When travelling in Canada, watch yer ass!

Forbes and a few other publications have come out with a list of dangerous places to go to. Not the sort of places where holidays are recommended, or in some cases, even allowed!

They list places like Somalia, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Sudan, The Congo, Lebanon, Zimbabwe, Palestine and Haiti.

If you look at the location of these places, all of them with the exception of Haiti are either in the Middle-East or Africa. That is until now!

Australia, P.O.'d at all the people who go to Canada for a holiday, (Not only Australians who come here, but other countries that go to Canada instead of Australia) has issued a world wide travel alert for people wanting to come here to Canuck-Land.

Their advertising and travel brochures now say that Canada is subject to;

1. Terrorists
2. Earthquakes (B.C.)
3. Avalanches (ski resorts)
4. Traffic congestion (Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, Ottawa, Calgary, Edmonton, Hamilton, Halifax, Winnipeg, London, Victoria, Regina, Quebec City, etc. etc.)
5. Crime (Which they note is of a similar level to Australia..... low!)
6. Winter driving..... the wind chill factor(?!)
7. Tornadoes (Only between May and September, obviously),
8. Bush and forest fires which can occur "at any time." (They didn't go so far as to suggest that Australians would be in danger of tsunamis while visiting Canada, but they sure didn't rule it out.)
9. Mad Cow disease (Although there was only 1 mad cow and 3 that were slightly miffed!)
10. SARS - (Yes we have to admit that SARS decimated the Canadian population, killing six or seven people of our total of over 33 million!)

According to CTV News, William Fisher, the Australian High Commissioner to Canada, noted that; "Canada still ranks as the top 'dream destination' for Australian tourists," and that "More than a quarter million Australians visit Canada each year."

Hence the attempt to discourage travel to Canada and get Australians to stay home!

What is perhaps more galling to the average Canadian is the Toronto Star's report that the U.S. State Department also saw fit to warn its citizens that "Violent crimes such as murder, armed robbery and rape can occur throughout Canada," and that "While Canadian gun control laws are much more strict than those of the U.S., such laws have not prevented gun-related violence in certain areas of Toronto."

It is unclear whether after issuing the statement the U.S. State Department then choked on its own gigantic, hypocritical tongue.

We here at "Perspective" agree with Canada's decision not to respond in kind to Australia's and America's warnings to its own citizens. Mostly because we figured making a list of all the reasons not to go to these places would be really, really petty.

I didn't know that!

Water IS blue, not just because of the sky;

Many believe that lakes and oceans are blue “only” because they reflect the blue sky.

Actually water looks blue because water is blue; the water molecules do absorb some light, and they absorb red frequencies more than blue.

The effect is small, so the blue color only becomes obvious when observing layers of water many meters (or more) thick. (This effect is noticeable to a lesser amount in white-painted swimming pools.)

In salt water or mineral-laden fresh water, the color of dissolved minerals can also be seen.

Sky-reflection does play a role, but only when the water surface is very calm, and only when the water is observed at a glancing angle less than approximately ten degrees.

Electricity does NOT travel at the speed of light;

Many textbooks claim that Electricity (electrons) within wires flows at nearly (or even exactly at) the speed of light. In fact it’s the electrical energy which flows rapidly (”rapidly” is still slower than the speed of light).

Electrons, which have mass, can never travel at the speed of light due to the theory of relativity. The drift velocity of the charges in an electric current is extremely slow, on the order of centimetres per hour.

Where the electric current is visible, as in electrophoresis, the slow movement of charge carriers can be seen directly.

As a very rough analogy, imagine a line of people at an amusement park. When the people at the front board the ride, a space opens up, and rapidly spreads to the back of the line.

However, the average velocity of any one person is far slower than the speed at which the space moves.

Seasons are NOT the same length;

Due to the earth moving fastest in its orbit when closest to the Sun, the southern summer / northern winter is the shortest season, with northern summer / southern winter being the longest.

However, the difference on earth is only a matter of a few days, while on Mars with its more eccentric orbit the difference is more distinct.

You WON’T get a cold just from low temperature;

It is a very widespread misconception that the common cold can be caused by (or the chance of getting infected by it is increased by) exposure to cold weather.

In reality, the common cold is caused by viruses and has nothing to do with low temperatures.

Saturn is NOT the only planet with rings;

Jupiter, Uranus, and Neptune also have rings, though those of Saturn are the most visually striking (and the only ones easily seen).

Meteors are NOT hot when they land on Earth;

When a meteor lands on Earth, it usually is not hot. It’s usually warm.

A meteor’s great speed is enough to melt its outside layer, but any molten material will be quickly blown off (ablated), and the interior of the meteor doesn’t have time to heat up because rocks are poor conductors of heat.

Also, atmospheric drag can slow small meteors to terminal velocity by the time they hit the ground, giving them some time to cool down.

Clouds do NOT form because of the air’s temperature;

It is incorrectly believed that clouds form because cold air “holds” less water vapor than warm air.

Air has no capacity to hold water vapor. It is the temperature of the water itself (and its surroundings) that causes humidity, condensation and clouds to form.

People DID know earth was not flat before Columbus;

Some believe that Christopher Columbus had a hard time receiving support because Europeans believed in a flat Earth.

In fact, sailors and navigators of the time knew that the Earth was spherical, but (correctly) disagreed with Columbus’s estimates of the distance to the Indies.

If the Americas did not exist, and Columbus had continued to the Indies (even putting aside the threat of mutiny he was under) he would not have survived long enough to reach them.

The Great Wall of China is NOT particularly visible from space;

While at a low orbit, the Great Wall of China can certainly be seen from space but it is not unique in that regard.

From a low orbit of the earth, many artificial objects are visible on the earth, not just the Great Wall of China.

Highways, ships in the sea, dams, railroads, cities, fields of crops, and even some individual buildings.

As to the claim that it’s the only man-made object visible from the moon, Apollo astronauts have reported that they could not see any man-made object from the moon, not even the Great Wall.

There is NO “dark side” of the Moon;

The Moon is in synchronous orbit –this means, it takes exactly the same time to rotate once around its axis than it does to make one orbit around the Earth– so it has a far side, because it always keeps the same hemisphere pointed towards Earth.

When the Moon is roughly between the Sun and Earth, it is daytime for the “far side” and night time for the “near side”.

When the Moon gets “behind” the Earth, it is night time for the “far side” and daytime for the “near side.”

There ya go, bunky!

Sunday Morning Funnies #1384

Scotish Humor; (Note, might be hard to understand unless you speak Scottish!)

Waiter: 'Are ye here for a special occasion lad?

McGregor: "Aye we won third prize in the annual Robert Burns contest, a haggis dinner for two"

Waiter: "What were the other prizes?"

McGregor: "The second prize was a single haggis dinner, and, if you won first prize, you did'nae have to eat the haggis!"

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

An Australian, an Irishman and a Newfoundlander are in a bar.

They're all staring at another man across the room when suddenly the Irishman says, "It sure looks like the lard Jesus!"

Sure enough, it is Jesus, nursing a pint. Thrilled, they send him over a pint of Guinness, a pint of Fosters and a bottle of Molson Canadian.

Jesus accepts the drinks, smiles over at the three men, and drinks the pints slowly, one after another.

After he's finished he approaches the trio. He reaches for the hand of the Irishman
and shakes it, thanking him for the Guinness.

When he lets go, the Irishman gives a cry of amazement, "My God! The arthritis I've had for 30 years is gone. It's a miracle!"

Jesus then shakes the Aussie's hand, thanking him for the lager. As he lets go, the man's eyes widen in shock. "Strewth mate, the bad back I've had all my life is completely gone! It's a miracle"

Jesus then approaches the Newfie who knocks over a chair and a table in trying to get out of the way from the Son of God.

What's wrong my son?" asked Jesus.

The Newf shouts, "Lard Tunderin Jasus, stay da fock away from me boy, I'm on Workers Compensation."

The Cowboy Boots

Did you hear about the Texas teacher who was helping One of her kindergarten students put on his cowboy boots?

He asked for help and she could see why.

Even with her pulling and him pushing, the little boots still didn't want to go on.

By the time they got the second boot on, she had worked up a sweat.

She almost cried when the little boy said, "Teacher, they're on the wrong Feet."

She looked, and sure enough, they were. It wasn't any easier pulling the boots off than it was putting them on.

She managed to keep her cool as together they worked to get the boots back on, this time on the right feet.

He then announced, "These aren't my boots." She bit her tongue rather than
get right in his face and scream, "Why didn't you say so?", like she wanted
to.

Once again, she struggled to help him pull the ill-fitting boots off his little feet.

No sooner had they gotten the boots off when he said, They're my brother's boots. My Mom made me wear 'em."

Now she didn't know if she should laugh or cry. But, she mustered up what
Grace and cour a ge she had left to wrestle the boots on his feet again.

Helping him into his coat, she asked, "Now, where are your mittens?" He
said, "I stuffed 'em in the toes of my boots."

She will be eligible for parole in three years!

Due to the climate of political correctness now pervading America , Alabamians, Kentuckians, Tennesseans and West Virginians will no longer be referred to as "HILLBILLIES." You must now refer to them as APPALACHIAN-AMERICANS .

And furthermore...

1 She is not a "BABE" or a "CHICK" - She is a " BREASTED AMERICAN."

2. She is not "EASY" - She is "HORIZONTALLY ACCESSIBLE."

3. She is not a "DUMB BLONDE" - She is a "LIGHT-HAIRED DETOUR OFF THE INFORMATION SUPERHIGHWAY."

4. She has not "BEEN AROUND" - She is a "PREVIOUSLY-ENJOYED COMPANION."

5 She does not "NAG" you - She becomes " VERBALLY REPETITIVE."

6. She is not a "TWO-BIT HOOKER" - She is a " LOW COST PROVIDER."

HOW TO SPEAK ABOUT MEN AND BE POLITICALLY CORRECT:

1. He does not have a "BEER GUT" - He has developed a "LIQUID GRAIN STORAGE FACILITY."

2. He is not a "BAD DANCER" - He is " OVERLY CAUCASIAN."

3.. He does not "GET LOST ALL THE TIME" - He " INVESTIGATES ALTERNATIVE DESTINATIONS."

4. He is not "BALDING" - He is in "FOLLICLE REGRESSION."

5. He does not act like a "TOTAL ASS" - He develops a case of RECTAL-CRANIAL INVERSION."

6. It' s not his "CRACK" you see hanging out of his pants - It's "REAR CLEAVAGE."
