Thoughts for the Day

Posted by nebraskaobserver on June 19, 2008

1- Zero Gravity

When NASA first started sending up astronauts, they quickly discovered that ball-point pens would not work in zero gravity. To combat this problem, NASA scientists spent a decade and $12 billion developing a pen that writes in zero gravity, upside-down, on almost any surface including glass and at temperatures ranging from below freezing to over 300 C.

The Russians used a pencil…Your taxes are due again — enjoy paying them.

2 – Our Constitution

They keep talking about drafting a Constitution for Iraq . Why don’t we just give them ours? It was written by a lot of really smart guys, it’s worked for over 200 years and we’re not using it anymore.

3 – Ten Commandments

The real reason that we can’t have the Ten Commandments in a Courthouse is that you cannot post “Thou Shalt Not Steal”, Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery” and “Thou Shall Not Lie” in a building full of lawyers, judges and politicians! It creates a hostile work environment.

    Those are great! The pencil thing came to mind before I even got to the part of the Russians 🙂 I especially like the one about our Constitution… stupid Patriot Act. I do not even want to think about what America is going to be in another 10 years.
