Paper Is Dead? Really?

February 1, 2016

This French Ad made me laugh right out loud!
My hat's off to the advertising team that came up with the idea. It has often been said that paper is dead, because we're living in the electronic age!
Paper is not dead - ????? ?? ??

It's only a 39 second video - The irony at the end won't be lost.

Born Salesman

Ole, the smoothest-talking Norwegian in the Minnesota National Guard, got called up to active duty. Ole's first assignment was in a military induction center.
Because he was a good talker, they assigned him the duty of advising new recruits about government benefits, especially the GI life insurance, to which they were entitled.

The officer in charge soon noticed that Ole was getting a 99% sign-up rate for the more expensive supplemental form of GI insurance. This was remarkable, because it cost these low-income recruits $30 per month for the higher coverage, compared to what the government was already providing at no charge.
The officer decided he'd sit in the back of the room at the next briefing and observe Ole's sales pitch. Ole stood up before the latest group of inductees and said, 'If you haf da normal GI insurans an' yoo go to Afghanistan an' get yourself killed, da governmen' pays yer beneficiary $20,000. If yoo take out da supplemental insurans, vich cost you only t'irty dollars a mont , den da governmen' got ta pay yer beneficiary $200,000!'
............ 'Now,' Ole concluded, 'Vich bunch you tink dey gonna send ta Afghanistan first?'

It takes a college degree to fly a plane, but only a high school diploma to fix one; that's reassurance for us passengers

After every flight, UPS pilots fill out a form, called a ‘gripe sheet,’ which tells mechanics about problems with the aircraft.
The mechanics correct the problems, and document their repairs on the form,

Never let it be said that ground crews lack a sense of humor.
Here are some actual maintenance complaints submitted by UPS pilots (marked with a P) and the solutions recorded (marked with an S) by maintenance engineers.

P: Left inside main tire almost needs replacement.
S: Almost replaced left inside main tire.

P: Test flight OK, except auto-land very rough.
S: Auto-land not installed on this aircraft.

P: Something loose in cockpit
S: Something tightened in cockpit

P: Dead bugs on windshield.
S: Live bugs on back-order.

P: Autopilot in altitude-hold mode produces a 200 feet per minute descent
S: Cannot reproduce problem on ground.

P: Evidence of leak on right main landing gear.
S: Evidence removed.

P: DME volume unbelievably loud.

And the best one for last

By the way, UPS is the only major airline carrier that has never, ever, had an  accident....

A Neighbors Dilemma

January 26, 2016

One winter day, Fred's neighbor Sam, came up to Fred's door and started pounding on it.
Fred answered the door. 'Sam, what's up?' he said.
Sam angrily replied, 'That no good son of yours has been peeing in thesnow in my yard!'
Fred asked, 'How do you know it was my son?'
Sam answered, 'He wrote his name in pee!'
'Okay,' Fred replied. 'I'll talk to him about it, but I have to say, I don't see what the big deal is. It's just pee in the snow.

Why are you so fired up about it?'
Sam snapped back, 'It's in my daughter's handwriting!'
