    [​IMG] When staying in a youth hostel in Germany, never sit outside in a corridor on your own and drink a litre of Sprite. It is so bad for you and your breath, it's quite unbelievable. But it does get the girls crawling all over you. :bigeyes:

    2.You start out each morning with a 30-minute jog around the bathroom.
    3.You write to your mother in Germany every week, even though she sends
    you mail from Iowa asking why you never write.
    4.Every time you see a street sign, you have a tremendous urge to relieve
    yourself on it.

    7.Every commercial you hear on the radio reminds you of death.
    8.People stay away from you whenever they hear you howl.
    9.Your breath smells more and more like squirrel dung each passing day.
    10.Nobody listens to you anymore, because they can't understand you through
    that scuba mask.
    11.You begin to stop and consider all of the blades of grass you've stepped
    on as a child, and worry that their ancestors are going to one day seek
    revenge.
    12.You have meaningful conversations with your toaster.
    13.Your father pretends you don't exist, just to play along with your
    little illusion.

    15.Every time the phone rings, you shout, "Hey! An angel just got its

    29.You despise the voices in your head, especially the one that speaks only

    Things you would never know if it weren't for the movies...

    Large, loft apartments in New York City are plentiful and affordable,
    even if the tenants are unemployed.
    One of a pair of identical twins is evil.
    Should you decide to defuse a bomb, don't worry about which wire to cut.
    You will always choose the right one.
    It doesn't matter if you are greatly outnumbered in a fight involving
    martial arts. Your enemies will wait patiently to attack you one by
    one... dancing around in a threatening manner until you have dispatched
    their predecessors.
    When you turn out the light to go to bed, everything in your bedroom
    will still be clearly visible but slightly blue.
    If you are blonde and pretty, it is possible to be a world-famous expert
    on nuclear fission, dinosaurs, hieroglyphics, or anything else, at the
    age of 22.
    Honest and hard-working policemen are usually gunned down a day or two
    before retirement.
    Rather than wasting bullets, megalomaniacs prefer to kill their enemies
    using complex machinery involving fuses, deadly gasses, lasers, buzz
    saws and hungry sharks, all of which will give their captives at least
    20 minutes to escape.
    During all crime investigations, it is necessary to visit a strip club
    at least once.
    All beds have special L-shaped covers that reach up to the armpits of a
    woman but only to the waist of the man lying beside her.
    All grocery shopping bags contain at least one French bread and one
    bunch of carrots with leafy tops.
    It's easy to land a plane, providing there is someone in the control
    tower to talk you down.
    If you are beautiful, your makeup never rubs off, even while
    scuba-diving or fighting aliens. However if you are overweight, your
    mascara will run and your lipstick will smear.
    The ventilation system of any building is the perfect hiding place. No
    one will ever think of looking for you in there, and you can travel to
    any other part of the building without difficulty.
    You're very likely to survive any battle in any war unless you make the
    mistake of showing someone a picture of your sweetheart back home.
    Should you wish to pass yourself off as a German officer, it is not
    necessary to speak the language. A German accent will do.
    A man will show no pain while taking the most horrific beating, but will
    wince when a woman tries to clean his wounds.
    If staying in a haunted house, women must investigate any strange noises
    in their most diaphanous underwear, which is what they happened to be
    wearing when the car broke down.
    If someone says "I'll be right back", they won't.
    Even when driving down a perfectly straight road, it is necessary to
    turn the steering wheel from time to time.
    All bombs are fitted with electronic timing devices with large red
    readouts so you know exactly when they're going to go off.
    A police detective can only solve a case after he has been suspended
    from duty.
    If you decide to start dancing in the street, everyone around you will
    be able to mirror all the steps you come up with, and hear the music in
    your head.
    Police departments give their officers personality tests to make sure
    each is assigned a partner who is their total opposite.
    When they are alone, all foreigners prefer to speak English to each
    other.

    Rules For Flight

    There is a lot pilots have to take into account when hulling your ass
    across the sky...
    1. Every takeoff is optional. Every landing is mandatory.
    2. If you push the stick forward, the houses get bigger. If you pull the
    stick back, they get smaller. That is, unless you keep pulling the stick
    all the way back, then they get bigger again.
    3. Flying isn't dangerous. Crashing is what's dangerous.
    4. It's always better to be down here wishing you were up there than up
    there wishing you were down here.
    5. The ONLY time you have too much fuel is when you're on fire.
    6. The propeller is just a big fan in front of the plane used to keep
    the pilot cool. When it stops, you can actually watch the pilot start
    sweating.
    7. When in doubt, hold on to your altitude. No one has ever collided
    with the sky.
    8. A 'good' landing is one from which you can walk away. A 'great'
    landing is one after which they can use the plane again.
    9. Learn from the mistakes of others. You won't live long enough to make
    all of them yourself.
    10. You know you've landed with the wheels up if it takes full power to
    taxi to the ramp.
    11. The probability of survival is inversely proportional to the angle
    of arrival. Large angle of arrival, small probability of survival and
    vice versa.
    12. Never let an aircraft take you somewhere your brain didn't get to
    five minutes earlier.
    13. Stay out of clouds. The silver lining everyone keeps talking about
    might be another airplane going in the opposite direction. Reliable
    sources also report that mountains have been known to hide out in
    clouds.
    14. Always try to keep the number of landings you make equal to the
    number of take offs you've made.
    15. There are three simple rules for making a smooth landing.
    Unfortunately no one knows what they are.
    16. You start with a bag full of luck and an empty bag of experience.
    The trick is to fill the bag of experience before you empty the bag of
    luck.
    17. Helicopters can't fly; they're just so ugly the earth repels them.
    18. If all you can see out of the window is ground that's going round
    and round and all you can hear is commotion coming from the passenger
    compartment, things are not at all as they should be.
    19. In the ongoing battle between objects made of aluminum going
    hundreds of miles per hour and the ground going zero miles per hour, the
    ground has yet to lose.
    20. Good judgment comes from experience. Unfortunately, the experience
    usually comes from bad judgment.
    21. It's always a good idea to keep the pointy end going forward as much
    as possible.
    22. Keep looking around. There's always something you've missed.
    23. Remember, gravity is not just a good idea. It's the law. And it's
    not subject to repeal.
    24. The four most useless things to a pilot are the altitude above you,
    runway behind you, gas back at the airport, and a tenth of a second ago.
    25. There are old pilots and there are bold pilots. There are, however,
    no old, bold pilots.

    Things To Ponder

    1. Don't sweat the petty things and don't pet the sweaty things.
    2. One tequila, two tequila, three tequila, floor.
    3. Atheism is a non-prophet organization.
    4. If man evolved from monkeys and apes, why do we still have monkeys
    and apes?
    5. The main reason Santa is so jolly is because he knows where all the
    bad girls live.
    6. I went to a bookstore and asked the saleswoman, "Where's the
    self-help section?" She said if she told me, it would defeat the
    purpose.
    7. Could it be that all those trick-or-treaters wearing sheets aren't
    going as ghosts but as mattresses?
    8. If a mute swears, does his mother wash his hands with soap?
    9. If a man is standing in the middle of the forest speaking and there
    is no woman around to hear him...is he still wrong?
    10. If someone with multiple personalities threatens to kill himself, is
    it considered a hostage situation?
    11. Is there another word for synonym?
    12. Isn't it a bit unnerving that doctors call what they do "practice?"
    13. Where do forest rangers go to "get away from it all?"
    14. What do you do when you see an endangered animal eating an
    endangered plant?
    15. If a parsley farmer is sued, can they garnish his wages?
    16. Would a fly without wings be called a walk?
    17. Why do they lock gas station bathrooms? Are they afraid someone will
    clean them?
    18. If a turtle doesn't have a shell, is he homeless or naked?
    19. Why don't sheep shrink when it rains?
    20. Can vegetarians eat animal crackers?
    21. If the police arrest a mime, do they tell him he has the right to
    remain silent?
    22. Why do they put Braille on the drive-through ugly bank machines?
    23. How do they get the deer to cross at that yellow road sign?
    24. Is it true that cannibals don't eat clowns because they taste funny?
    25. What was the best thing before sliced bread?
    26. One nice thing about egotists: they don't talk about other people.
    27. To be intoxicated is to feel sophisticated, but not be able to say
    it.
    28. Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.
    29. The older you get, the better you realize you were.
    30. Age is a very high price to pay for maturity.
    31. Procrastination is the art of keeping up with yesterday.
    32. Women like silent men, they think they're listening.
    33. Men are from Earth, women are from Earth. Deal with it.
    34. Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach him how to fish,
    and he will sit in a boat and drink beer all day.
    35. Do pediatricians play miniature golf on Wednesdays?
    36. Before they invented drawing boards, what did they go back to?
    37. Do infants enjoy infancy as much as adults enjoy adultery?
    38. If all the world is a stage, where is the audience sitting?
    39. If God dropped acid, would he see people?
    40. If one synchronized swimmer drowns, do the rest have to drown too?
    41. If the #2 pencil is the most popular, why is it still #2?
    42. If work is so terrific, how come they have to pay you to do it?
    43. If you ate pasta and anti-pasta, would you still be hungry?
    44. If you try to fail, and succeed, which have you done?
    45. Why is it called tourist season if we can't shoot at them?
