    This is neat….

    This is amazing & simple. This is for all those out there who make
    their own wine, end up with the cork in the bottle and have no way of
    getting it out so the bottle
    can’t be used again.
    And for those of you who don’t really care, it’s still cool to watch.
    WATCH IT CLOSELY…

They had old, noisy planes & the engines used to conk out halfway through their missions, so they had to climb out on the wings mid-flight to restart the props. To stop Germans from hearing them & starting up the anti aircraft guns, they’d climb to a certain height, coast down to German positions, drop their bombs, restart their engines in midair & get the hell out of dodge. Their leader flew 200+ missions & was never captured.

    Is our education system going down hill or what.  I had a gentleman tell me that he'd personally met several recent high school graduates in the past few months that could not sign their name.  Talk about being left behind.

    Of course this video probably only shows the funniest of the dumb, but still…

    You could have talked about this in Cozumel – “What gender is ‘computer’?” 

    ———- Forwarded message ———-
    From: Bill 
    Date: 18 May 2012 05:27
    Subject: you could have talked about this in Cozumel

    A Spanish teacher was explaining to her class that in Spanish, unlike English, nouns are designated as either masculine or feminine. House for instance, is feminine: ‘la casa.’ Pencil, however, is masculine: ‘el lapis’.

    A student asked, "What gender is 'computer'?" Instead of giving the answer the teacher split the class into two groups, male and female, and asked them to decide for themselves whether ‘computer’ should be a masculine or a feminine noun.

    Each group was asked to give four reasons for its recommendation.

    The men's group decided that ‘computer’ should definitely be of the feminine gender ‘la computadora’ because (1) No-one but their creator understands their internal logic, (2) The native language they use to communicate with other computers is incomprehensible to everyone else, (3) Even the smallest mistakes are stored in long term memory for possible later retrieval, and (4) As soon as you make a commitment to one, you find yourself spending half your pay cheque on accessories for it.

    The women's group, however, concluded that computers should be masculine ‘el computador’ because (1) In order to do anything with them you have to turn them on, (2) They have a lot of data but still can't think for themselves, (3) They are supposed to help you solve problems but half the time they ARE the problem, and (4) As soon as you commit to one you realize that if you had waited a little longer you could have got a better model.

    The women won.
