Greetings workers of the world! As you know, I just re-send the best joke(s) I get from the emails I gather from people all over the world. Then I add my own original drawings (which I create on the spot as I put this email together) to give it a personal touch. Most of the time I create this a few hours before Thursday midnight so if you catch a few typos, please forgive my tired mind and fingers. If this is your first time to receive this, welcome to a new and (hopefully) entertaining addiction.

What a whirlwind of a week! The heat that was nauseatingly unbearable didn't help either. I am totally exhausted. I need to go to bed ASAP. But it's these challenges of life that make life so interesting --- always something to look forward to. I just need to rest for a minute.

Thanks to Sylvia of Virginia, Pete of Virginia, Don of Kewlona, Janette of Hong Kong and Levon of Los Angeles.

Of course thanks to Steve who sends his 3rd original contribution of "Life on the Lopside."

3. Law of Probability - The probability of being watched is directly proportional to the stupidity of your act.

4. Law of Random Numbers - If you dial a wrong number, you never get a busy signal and someone always answers.

6. Variation Law - If you change lines (or traffic lanes), the one you were in will always move faster than the one you are in now (works every time).

As Inspector Callahan would say: "So do you feel lucky? ... Punk?" This is a marvelous collection of several fortunate turn of events. Some old, some new but all still fascinating to watch.

China's Got Talent

Piano no handsNo hands Piano

I should have expected that China would have its own version of that famous talent contest. Well here's piano playing without any hands. I think more than the playing, I admire his self-confidence.

Steve Jobs Stanford Speech 2005
Sent by Levon of Los Angeles, CA

Steve Jobs in StanfordSteve Jobs

Good lessons from a man who helped shape the technological world. I wonder what life would have been like if this innovator wasn't around.

And if you like this, there are videos all around of him and his "arch rival" Bill Gates.

His message gives hope to all of us about our self worth.

Give us a sense of humor, Lord. Give us the grace to see a joke,
To get some humor out of life. And pass it on to other folk
