Sikegami has found another gem. Your favorite rock albums turned into lullabyes. What could be better? Okay, maybe a few things. But this is still pretty sweet. I would definitely go for Coldplay first.

Best Short Joke Ever

Posted in Uncategorized on Thursday February 8, 2007 by andtheivy

“Say No to Crack is having a little fun contest to find out the best short joke ever. Many have been submitted.For example:

A dog limps into a bar and says, “I’m looking for the man that shot my paw!”

What’s green, lives in your refridgerator and sings? Elvis Parsley.

Little Jonny went to the police claiming he was constantly beaten by his parents. Child services looked into it and found the whole family had abuse problems back generations. The judge didn’t know what to do! Finally, he realized the perfect solution. He gave Jonny to the Chicago Bears. They never beat anyone.

Ah, kindergarten humor. Precious!” Link

I’m Digging to China.

The question is this: If I dig a very deep hole through the earth, where will I end up??

Go dig a hole and find out!

Personally, I think there could be several answers for each one.  Why?  Well, for starters, I’m a scientist.  Seriously, doesn’t it depend on the ANGLE at which you’re digging?  That’s my personal belief, anyhow.  And until someone (say, another scientist, for example) proves me wrong, I’m going with that opinion.  Whatever the case, it’s fun to do!

(Thanks for the fun find, Sam!)
