    TRUCK PAINTERS ARE AT IT AGAIN

    Subject: Fw: Fwd: TRUCK PAINTERS ARE AT IT AGAIN

    The Truck Painters are at it again

    Here are 7 pictures of European trucks whose trailers are decorated to look like the sides are missing and the products they are hauling are painted on the sides and back.
    The first one is of a bottle of beer and looks so real, like it is coming out the side of the trailer.

    The second is of a canvas tote bag.

    The third is of Pepsi cases. They are all stacked on the ceiling and the bottom of the trailer is empty.

    The fourth is of another truck with the windshield facing the back, a driver painted in the driver’s seat looking back over his shoulder to appear like he is driving backwards. (Now this one is just plain scary, even when the German reads ‘On the wrong way?’)

    The fifth one is of an aquarium with fish swimming in it.

    The sixth one is of a bookshelf with books lined up in it and a post-it-note with an advertisement on it, probably for the company that sells the books.

    The last one is for Pringles-Hot & Spicy. The ‘inside’ of the trailer has the appearance of having been through a fire.

    Micro waved water – MUST READ!!! 

    Have checked this on Snopes.com and it IS true. See –

    NOT A JOKE! PLEASE READ……….

    <20160123124205_image1.gif>

    THIS ONE NEEDS TO BE SHARED!

    Micro waved water – a MUST read…

    A 26-year old decided to have a cup of coffee. He took a cup of water and
    Put it in the microwave to heat it up (something that he had done numerous
    Times before). I am not sure how long he set the timer for, but he told me
    He wanted to bring the water to a boil. When the timer shut the oven off,
    He removed the cup from the oven. As he looked into the cup, he noted that
    The water was not boiling, but instantly the water in the cup ‘blew up’
    Into his face. The cup remained intact until he threw it out of his hand
    But all the water had flown out into his face due to the build up of
    Energy. His whole face is blistered and he has 1st and 2nd degree burns to
    His face, which may leave scarring. He also may have lost partial sight in
    His left eye. While at the hospital, the doctor who was attending to him
    Stated that this is fairly common occurrence and water (alone) should
    Never be heated in a microwave oven. If water is heated in this manner,
    Something should be placed in the cup to diffuse the energy such as: a
    Wooden stir stick, tea bag, etc. It is however a much safer choice to boil
    The water in a teakettle.

    General Electric’s (GE) response:

    Thanks for contacting us. I will be happy to assist you. The e-mail that
    You received is correct. Microwaved water and other liquids do not always
    Bubble when they reach the boiling point. They can actually get
    Superheated and not bubble at all. The superheated liquid will bubble up
    Out of the cup when it is moved or when something like a spoon or tea bag
    Is put into it. To prevent this from happening and causing injury, do not
    Heat any liquid for more than two minutes per cup. After heating, let the
    Cup stand in the microwave for thirty seconds before moving it or adding
    Anything into it.

    If you pass this on … You could very well save someone from a lot of
    Pain and suffering.

    WOW……Archie Bunker….."back in the day" (ha).
    What a wonderful show………….so funny. He was so real……….he touched your heart.
    bye for now.

    Subject: Archie Bunker gives a eulogy

    Politically Correct types probably won’t like this. Don’t watch it then.

    But, IMO, open minded people with a sense of humour will thoroughly love it. I wish we had more comedy like this!

    Why can’t we enjoy humor like this anymore. It is a classic. Take the time to watch it.

    ARCHIE BUNKER GIVES A EULOGY-

    A BRILLIANT PIECE OF COMEDY… BRILLIANT WRITING AND BRILLIANT PRESENTATION…

    http://static.ijreview.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/911-memorial-jerusalem.jpg
    Completed
    in 2009 for $2 million, it sits on 5 acres of

    hillside,
    20 miles from the center of Jerusalem.

    September
    11th disaster. It was sent over to Israel by the City of New York to be
    incorporated
    in this memorial. This metal piece, like the entire monument, is a
    manifestation
    of the special relationship between New York and
    Jerusalem.”

    Green Thing 

    Forwarded message
    From: Andrew
    Date: 22 February 2016 at 20:29
    Subject: Green Thing

    Ladies and Gentlemen, for those that can remember before we had the greening.

    "Checking out at the store, the young cashier suggested to the much older lady that she should bring her own grocery bags, because plastic bags are not good for the environment.
    The woman apologized to the young girl and explained, "We didn’t have this ‘green thing’ back in my earlier days."

    The young clerk responded, "That’s our problem today. Your generation did not care enough to save our environment for future generations."

    The older lady said that she was right — our generation didn’t have the "green thing" in its day. The older lady went on to explain:
    Back then, we returned milk bottles, soda bottles and beer bottles to the store. The store sent them back to the plant to be washed and sterilized and refilled, so it could use the same bottles over and over. So they really were recycled. But we didn’t have the "green thing" back in our day.

    Grocery stores bagged our groceries in brown paper bags that we reused for numerous things. Most memorable besides household garbage bags was the use of brown paper bags as book covers for our school books. This was to ensure that public property (the books provided for our use by the school) was not defaced by our scribblings. Then we were able to personalize our books on the brown paper bags. But, too bad we didn’t do the "green thing" back then.
    We walked up stairs because we didn’t have an escalator in every store and office building. We walked to the grocery store and didn’t climb into a 300-horsepower machine every time we had to go two blocks.

    But she was right. We didn’t have the "green thing" in our day.

    Back then we washed the baby’s diapers because we didn’t have the throw away kind. We dried clothes on a line, not in an energy-gobbling machine burning up 220 volts. Wind and solar power really did dry our clothes back in our early days. Kids got hand-me-down clothes from their brothers or sisters, not always brand-new clothing.

    But that young lady is right; we didn’t have the "green thing" back in our day.
    Back then we had one TV, or radio, in the house — not a TV in every room. And the TV had a small screen the size of a handkerchief (remember them?), not a screen the size of the state of Montana. In the kitchen we blended and stirred by hand because we didn’t have electric machines to do everything for us. When we packaged a fragile item to send in the mail, we used wadded up old newspapers to cushion it, not Styrofoam or plastic bubble wrap. Back then, we didn’t fire up an engine and burn gasoline just to cut the lawn. We used a push mower that ran on human power. We exercised by working so we didn’t need to go to a health club to run on treadmills that operate on electricity.

    But she’s right; we didn’t have the "green thing" back then.

    We drank from a fountain when we were thirsty instead of using a cup or a plastic bottle every time we had a drink of water. We refilled writing pens with ink instead of buying a new pen, and we replaced the razor blade in a r azor instead of throwing away the whole razor just because the blade got dull.

    But we didn’t have the "green thing" back then.

    Back then, people took the streetcar or a bus and kids rode their bikes to school or walked instead of turning their moms into a 24-hour taxi service in the family’s $45,000 SUV or van, which cost what a whole house did before the"green thing." We had one electrical outlet in a room, not an entire bank of sockets to power a dozen appliances. And we didn’t need a computerized gadget to receive a signal beamed from satellites 23,000 miles out in space in order to find the nearest burger joint.

    But isn’t it sad the current generation laments how wasteful we old folks were just because we didn’t have the "green thing" back then?

    Please forward this on to another selfish old person who needs a lesson in conservation from a smart ass young person.

    We don’t like being old in the first place, so it doesn’t take much to piss us off… Especially from a tattooed, multiple pierced smartass who can’t make change without the cash register telling them how much."
