A world free of stinky coffee breath people... ;)

(Then we would only have the stinky cigarette breath people do deal with.)

Why do the people who proclaim to have worked so hard seem to have the most energy to burn?

I've worked my tail off most of my life and all I have to show for my labor is a bad case of weariness... ;)

On the periodic table, why do some elements have symbols with letters that aren't even in the word?

The egg. The parents of the first chicken were not quite chickens.

The wheel? Before that fire? Before that was there any good?

I believe they make sense if you know Latin.

Two reasons I can think of. 1) It is more cost effective to only order one sort of terminal and just have slightly different mounting for drive up and walk up. 2) Chauffeur.

A guy I worked with once on a constuction site said "If I ever fell out of a Plane I would only take one thing" I asked what would you take?
He said "An extension lead" I said why?

He said " you can be sure it will snag on something on the way down!!!"

Why is it that when you transport something by car, it's called a shipment, but when you transport something by ship, it's called cargo?
