    Chinese Innovation

    Chinese Train that never stops at a station. Read the text first, then look at the 1-minute movie clip.

    An AMAZING Chinese Concept – the train that never stops. Read how it works below, before viewing the video link. A brilliant new Chinese train innovation – get on and off the bullet train without the train stopping. No time is wasted. The bullet train is moving all the time. If there are 30 stations between Beijing and Guangzhou, just stopping and accelerating again at each station will waste both energy and time.

    A mere 5 min stop per station (elderly passengers cannot be hurried) will result in a total loss of 5 min x 30 stations or 2.5 hours of train journey time!

    How it works (read then view the movie – (the commentary is inmandarin though!):

    1. For those who are boarding the train: The passengers at a station embark onto to a connector cabin way before the train even arrives at the station. When the train arrives, it will not stop. It just slows down to pick up the connector cabin which will move with the train on the roof of the train.

    While the train is still moving away from the station, those passengers will board the train from the connector cabin mounted on the train’s roof. After fully unloading all its passengers, the connector cabin will be moved to the back of the train so that the next batch of outgoing passengers who want to alight at the next station will board the connector cabin at the rear of the train roof.

    2. For those who are getting off: As stated, after fully unloading all its passengers, the connector cabin will be moved to the back of the train so that the next batch of outgoing passengers who want to ali ght at the next station will board the connector cabin at the rear of the train roof. When the train arrives at the next station, it will simply drop the whole connector cabin at the station itself and leave it behind at the station. The outgoing passengers can take their own time to disembark at the station while the train has already left. At the same time, the train will pick up the incoming embarking passengers on another connector cabin in the front part of the train’s roof. So the train will always drop one connector cabin at the rear of its roof and pick up a new connector cabin in the front part of the train’s roof at each station.

    3. This is called Innovative thinking: Any wonder that all the jobs are going East!

    Aging! 

    Forwarded message

    Subject: Fw: Fwd: Aging!

    I very quietly confided to my best friend that I was having an affair.

    She turned to me and asked, ‘Are you having it catered’?

    And that, my friend,

    Is the definition of ‘OLD’!

    ~ ~ ~

    Just before the funeral services, the undertaker

    Came up to the very elderly widow and asked,

    ‘How old was your husband?’

    ’96,’ she replied: ‘Two years younger than me’

    ‘So you’re 98,’ the undertaker commented.

    She responded, ‘Hardly worth going home, isn’t it?’

    ~ ~ ~

    Reporters interviewing a 104-year-old woman:

    ‘And what do you think is the best thing

    About being 104?’ the reporter asked.

    She simply replied,

    ‘No peer pressure.’

    ~ ~ ~

    I’ve sure gotten old!

    I’ve had two bypass surgeries, a hip replacement,

    New knees, fought prostate cancer and diabetes

    I’m half blind, can’t hear anything quieter than a jet engine,

    Take 40 different medications that

    Make me dizzy, winded, and subject to blackouts.

    Have bouts with dementia. Have poor circulation;

    Hardly feel my hands and feet anymore.

    Can’t remember if I’m 85 or 92.

    Have lost all my friends. But, thank God,

    I still have my Florida driver’s license.

    ~ ~ ~

    I feel like my body has gotten totally out of shape,

    So I got my doctor’s permission to

    Join a fitness club and start exercising.

    I decided to take an aerobics class for seniors.

    I bent, twisted, gyrated, jumped up and down, and perspired for an hour..

    But, by the time I got my leotards on,

    The class was over.

    ~ ~ ~

    An elderly woman decided to prepare her will and

    Told her preacher she had two final requests.

    First, she wanted to be cremated, and second,

    She wanted her ashes scattered over Wal-Mart.

    ‘Wal-Mart?’ the preacher exclaimed. ‘Why Wal-Mart?’

    ‘Then I’ll be sure my daughters visit me twice a week.’

    ~ ~ ~

    My memory’s not as sharp as it used to be.

    Also, my memory’s not as sharp as it used to be.

    ~ ~ ~

    Know how to prevent sagging?

    Just eat till the wrinkles fill out.

    ~ ~ ~

    It’s scary when you start making the same noises

    As your coffee maker.

    ~ ~ ~

    These days about half the stuff

    In my shopping cart says,

    ‘For fast relief.’

    ~ ~ ~

    THE SENILITY PRAYER:

    Grant me the senility to forget the people

    I never liked anyway,

    The good fortune to run into the ones I do, and

    The eyesight to tell the difference.

    ~ ~ ~

    ~ ~ ~

    THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:

    I don’t want to brag or make anyone jealous or anything, but I can still fit
    into the socks I wore in high school.

    Food shortage? 

    Forwarded message
    From: Ralph & BA Rays
    Date: 16 October 2016 at 04:03
    Subject: Fw: Fwd: Food shortage?

    Last month, a world-wide telephone survey was conducted by the UN.

    The only question asked was:-

    "Would you please give your honest opinion about possible solutions to the food shortage in the rest of the world?"

    The survey was a complete failure because?

    In Eastern Europe they didn’t know what "honest" meant.
    In Western Europe they didn’t know what "shortage" meant.
    In Africa they didn’t know what "food" meant.
    In China they didn’t know what "opinion" meant.
    In the Middle East they didn’t know what "solution" meant.
    In South America they didn’t know what "please" meant.
    In the USA they didn’t know what "the rest of the world" meant.
    And in Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and Great Britain
    everyone hung up as soon as they heard the Indian accent.

    Rules for Old Age 

    Forwarded message
    From: Ralph & BA
    Date: 15 October 2016 at 04:47
    Subject: Fw: Fwd: Rules for Old Age

    RULES FOR A GOOD OLD AGE

    1. It’s time to use the money you saved. Use it and enjoy it. Don’t just

    keep it for those who may have no notion of the sacrifices

    you made to get it. Enjoy the present moment. The sand

    in the clock may run out at any moment.

    2. Stop worrying about the financial situation of your
    children and grandchildren. You’ve taken care of them
    for many years, and you’ve taught them what you could.
    You gave them an education, food, shelter and support. The
    responsibility is now theirs to earn their way.

    3. Keep a healthy life with moderate exercise (like walking
    every day), eat well and get your sleep.

    4. Always buy the best, most beautiful items for your

    significant other. The key goal is to enjoy your money with

    your partner.

    5. Don’t stress over the little things. You’ve

    already overcome so much in your life.

    6. Regardless of age, always keep love alive. Love your

    partner, love life, love your family, love your neighbor,

    your surroundings, your country. We are never old as long as

    we have intelligence and affection.

    7. Be proud, both inside and out. Don’t stop going to
    your hair salon or barber. When you are
    well-maintained on the outside, it seeps in, making you feel
    proud and strong on the inside.

    8. Read newspapers, watch the news. Go online and read what
    people are saying. Keeping in touch with what is going on
    and with the people you know is important at any age.

    9. Never use the phrase: "In my time." Your time
    is now. As long as you’re alive, you are part of this
    time. You have been younger, but you are still you now,
    having fun and enjoying life.

    10. Don’t abandon your hobbies. If you don’t have
    any, make new ones. Find something you like and spend some
    real time having fun with it.

    11. If you’ve been offended by others, forgive them. If
    you’ve offended someone – apologize. Don’t drag
    resentment around with you. Someone once said,
    "Holding a grudge is like taking poison and expecting
    the other person to die."

    12. If you have a strong belief, savor it.

    13. Laugh. Laugh A LOT. Laugh at everything.

    14. Take no notice of what others say about you and even

    less of what they might be thinking
