    Ain’t that the truth?

    This was written by a black gentleman in Texas and is so funny. What a great sense of humour..

    And creative!!!

    When U Black, U Black!

    When I was born, I was BLACK

    When I grew up, I was BLACK

    When I went in the sun, I stayed BLACK

    When I got cold, I was BLACK

    When I was scared, I was BLACK

    When I was sick, I was BLACK

    And when I die, I’ll still be BLACK

    NOW, you ‘white’ folks . ..

    When you’re born, you’re PINK

    When you grow up, you’re WHITE

    When you go in the sun, you get RED

    When you’re cold, you turn BLUE

    When you’re scared, you’re YELLOW

    When you get sick, you’re GREEN

    When you bruise, you turn PURPLE

    And when you die, you look GREY

    So why y’all be callin’ us

    COLORED Folks!!!

    Subject: Senior Moments of Inspiration – SMILE

    1. My goal for 2016 was to lose just 10 pounds … only 15 to go.

    2. Ate salad for dinner …mostly croutons & tomatoes … really just
    one big, round crouton covered with tomato sauce … and cheese…
    FINE, it was a pizza… I ate a pizza!

    3. How to prepare Tofu:
    1. Throw it in the trash.
    2. Grill some meat.

    4. I just did a week’s worth of cardio after walking into a spider web.

    5. I don’t mean to brag but… I finished my 14-day diet food in 3
    hours and 20 minutes.

    6. A recent study has found women who carry a little extra weight
    live longer than men who mention it.

    7. Kids today don’t know how easy they have it… when I was young,
    I had to walk through 9 feet of shag carpet to change the TV channel.

    8. Senility has been a smooth transition for me.

    9. Remember back when we were kids and every time it was below zero
    out they closed school? Me neither.

    10. I may not be that funny or athletic or good looking or smart or
    talented … I forgot where I was going with this.

    11. I love being over 60 … I learn something new every day … and
    forget 5 others.

    12. A thief broke into my house last night … He started searching
    for money … so I woke up and searched with him.

    13. My dentist told me I need a Crown … I said, "You bet, pour mine
    over the rocks".

    14. I think I’ll just put an "Out of Order" sticker on my forehead
    and call it a day.

    "Just remember, once you’re over the hill you begin to pick up speed."

    Future Predictions ~ Do you buy these? 

    Forwarded message
    From: Ralph & BA
    Date: 26 August 2016 at 09:23
    Subject: Fw: Fwd: Future Predictions ~ Do you buy these?

    In 1998, Kodak had 170,000 employees and sold 85% of all photo paper worldwide. Within just a few years, their business model disappeared and they went bankrupt.

    What happened to Kodak will happen in a lot of industries in the next 10 years – and most people won’t see it coming. Did you think in 1998 that 3 years later you would never take pictures on film again?

    Yet digital cameras were invented in 1975. The first ones only had 10,000 pixels, but followed Moore’s law. So as with all exponential technologies, it was a disappointment for a long time, before it became way superior and got mainstream in only a few short years. It will now happen with Artificial Intelligence, health, autonomous and electric cars, education, 3D printing, agriculture and jobs. Welcome to the 4th Industrial Revolution. Welcome to the Exponential Age.

    Software will disrupt most traditional industries in the next 5-10 years.

    Uber is just a software tool, they don’t own any cars, and are now the biggest taxi company in the world.

    Airbnb is now the biggest hotel company in the world, although they don’t own any properties.

    Artificial Intelligence: Computers become exponentially better in understanding the world. This year, a computer beat the best Go player in the world, 10 years earlier than expected.

    In the US, young lawyers already don’t get jobs. Because of IBM Watson, you can get legal advice (so far for more or less basic stuff) within seconds, with 90% accuracy compared with 70% accuracy when done by humans.

    So if you study law, stop immediately. There will be 90% less lawyers in the future, only specialists will remain.

    Watson already helps nurses diagnosing cancer, 4 times more accurate than human nurses. Facebook now has a pattern recognition software that can recognize faces better than humans. In 2030, computers will become more intelligent than humans.

    Autonomous cars: In 2018 the first self driving cars will appear for the public. Around 2020, the complete industry will start to be disrupted. You don’t want to own a car anymore. You will call a car with your phone, it will show up at your location and drive you to your destination. You will not need to park it, you only pay for the driven distance and can be productive while driving. Our kids will never get a driver’s licence and will never own a car.

    It will change the cities, because we will need 90-95% less cars for that. We can transform former parking spaces into parks. 1.2 million people die each year in car accidents worldwide. We now have one accident every 60,000 mi (100,000 km), with autonomous driving that will drop to one accident in 6 million mi (10 million km). That will save a million lives each year.

    Most car companies will probably become bankrupt. Traditional car companies try the evolutionary approach and just build a better car, while tech companies (Tesla, Apple, Google) will do the revolutionary approach and build a computer on wheels.

    Many engineers from Volkswagen and Audi; are completely terrified of Tesla.

    Insurance companies will have massive trouble because without accidents, the insurance will become 100x cheaper. Their car insurance business model will disappear.

    Real estate will change. Because if you can work while you commute, people will move further away to live in a more beautiful neighborhood.

    Electric cars will become mainstream about 2020. Cities will be less noisy because all new cars will run on electricity. Electricity will become incredibly cheap and clean: Solar production has been on an exponential curve for 30 years, but you can now see the burgeoning impact.

    Last year, more solar energy was installed worldwide than fossil. Energy companies are
    desperately trying to limit access to the grid to prevent competition from home solar installations, but that can’t last. Technology will take care of that strategy.

    With cheap electricity comes cheap and abundant water. Desalination of salt water now only needs 2kWh per cubic meter (@ 0.25 cents). We don’t have scarce water in most places, we only have scarce drinking water. Imagine what will be possible if anyone can have as much clean water as he wants, for nearly no cost.

    Health: The Tricorder X price will be announced this year. There are companies who will build a medical device (called the "Tricorder" from Star Trek) that works with your phone, which takes your retina scan, your blood sample and you breath into it.

    It then analyses 54 biomarkers that will identify nearly any disease. It will be cheap, so in a few years everyone on this planet will have access to world class medical analysis, nearly for free. Goodbye, medical establishment.

    3D printing: The price of the cheapest 3D printer came down from $18,000 to $400 within 10 years. In the same time, it became 100 times faster. All major shoe companies have already started 3D printing shoes.

    Some spare airplane parts are already 3D printed in remote airports. The space station now has a printer that eliminates the need for the large amount of spare parts they used to have in the past.
    At the end of this year, new smart phones will have 3D scanning possibilities. You can then 3D scan your feet and print your perfect shoe at home.

    In China, they already 3D printed and built a complete 6-storey office building. By 2027, 10% of everything that’s being produced will be 3D printed.

    Business opportunities: If you think of a niche you want to go in, ask yourself: "in the future, do you think we will have that?" and if the answer is yes, how can you make that happen sooner?

    If it doesn’t work with your phone, forget the idea. And any idea designed for success in the 20th century is doomed to failure in the 21st century.

    Work: 70-80% of jobs will disappear in the next 20 years. There will be a lot of new jobs, but it is not clear if there will be enough new jobs in such a small time.

    Agriculture: There will be a $100 agricultural robot in the future. Farmers in 3rd world countries can then become managers of their field instead of working all day on their fields.

    Aeroponics will need much less water. The first Petri dish produced veal, is now available and will be cheaper than cow produced veal in 2018. Right now, 30% of all agricultural surfaces is used for cows. Imagine if we don’t need that space anymore. There are several startups who will bring insect protein to the market shortly. It contains more protein than meat. It will be labeled as "alternative protein source" (because most people still reject the idea of eating insects).

    There is an app called "moodies" which can already tell in which mood you�re in. By 2020 there will be apps that can tell by your facial expressions, if you are lying. Imagine a political debate where it’s being displayed when they�re telling the truth and when they�re not.

    Bitcoin may even become the default reserve currency. Of the world.

    Longevity: Right now, the average life span increases by 3 months per year. Four years ago, the life span used to be 79 years, now it’s 80 years. The increase itself is increasing and by 2036, there will be more that one year increase per year. So we all might live for a long long time, probably way more than 100.

    Education: The cheapest smart phones are already at $10 in Africa and Asia. By 2020, 70% of all humans will own a smart phone. That means, everyone has the same access to world class education.

    Every child can use Khan academy for everything a child learns at school in First World countries. We have already released our software in Indonesia and will release it in Arabic, Suaheli and Chinese this Summer, because I see an enormous potential. We will give the English app for free, so that children in Africa can become fluent in English within half a year.

    Subject: Fw: Fwd: Questions


    There are some really good ones here. Hope you enjoy this as much as I did.

    Can you cry under water?

    How important does a person have to be before they are considered assassinated instead of just murdered?

    Why do you have to ‘put your two cents in’… But it’s only a ‘penny for your thoughts’? Where’s that extra penny going to?

    Once you’re in heaven, do you get stuck wearing the clothes you were buried in for eternity?

    Why does a round pizza come in a square box?

    What disease did cured ham actually have?

    How is it that we put man on the moon before we figured out it would be a good idea to put wheels on luggage?

    Why is it that people say they ‘slept like a baby’ when babies wake up like every two hours?

    If a deaf person has to go to court, is it still called a hearing?

    Why are you IN a movie, but you’re ON TV?

    Why do people pay to go up tall buildings and then put money in binoculars to look at things on the ground?

    Why do doctors leave the room while you change?
    They’re going to see you naked anyway..

    Why is ‘bra’ singular and ‘panties’ plural?

    Why do toasters always have a setting that burns the toast to a horrible crisp, which no decent human being would eat?

    If Jimmy cracks corn and no one cares, why is there a stupid song about him?

    If the professor on Gilligan’s Island can make a radio out of a coconut, why can’t he fix a hole in a boat?

    Why does Goofy stand erect while Pluto remains on all fours?
    They’re both dogs!

    If Wile E. Coyote had enough money to buy all that ACME crap, why didn’t he just buy dinner?

    If corn oil is made from corn, and vegetable oil is made from vegetables, what is baby oil made from?

    If electricity comes from electrons, does morality come from morons?

    Do the Alphabet song and Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star have the same tune?

    Why did you just try singing the two songs above?

    Why do they call it an asteroid when it’s outside the hemisphere, but call it a hemorrhoid when it’s in your butt?

    Did you ever notice that when you blow in a dog’s face, he gets mad at you, but when you take him for a car ride, he sticks his head out the window?

    Why, Why, Why

    Why do they use sterilized needles for death by lethal injection?

    Why doesn’t Tarzan have a beard?

    Why does Superman stop bullets with his chest, but ducks when you throw a revolver at him?

    Why do Kamikaze pilots wear helmets?

    Whose idea was it to put an ‘S’ in the word ‘lisp’?

    If people evolved from apes,
    Whyare there still apes?

    Why is it that no matter what color bubble bath you use the bubbles are always white?

    Is there ever a day that mattresses
    Are not on sale?

    Why is it that no plastic bag will open from the end on your first try?

    How do those dead bugs get into those enclosed light fixtures?

    In winter why do we try to keep the house as warm as it was in summer when we complained about the heat?

    How come you never hear father-in-law jokes?

    And my FAVORITE……
    The statistics on sanity is that one out of every four persons are suffering from some sort of mental illness. Think of your three best friends — if they’re okay, then it’s you.

    Do you ever wonder why you gave me your e-mail address in the first place?

    ~~~Now send this on to your friends and make them smile too!~~~

    ****A day without a smile is like a day without sunshine!****
