Did you know that if you put
your ear up to a stranger's
leg you can hear them say:

What the f--k are you doing?

Entering a classroom at MCAS (Marine Corps Air Station,) Yuma, a female Marine Captain encountered a clearly apathetic audience. She was selected to provide a full hour's instruction on Iraqi electronic warfare capabilities to 150 Marine aviators who showed by their body language deep skepticism about her ability to teach war fighting skills to an all-male class.

She began by noting that her voice had just been tested to see if it was suitable for some new cockpit recorder messages for Marine aircraft. She said that unfortunately she had not been selected to be the new "Bitching Betty." However, she said it was only fair to warn the audience the reason given for her non-selection was that an analysis of her voice pattern revealed that her particular voice had a tendency to lull to sleep any male homosexual within earshot.

The assembled officers shot upright in their chairs. 150 pairs of eyes were wide open and locked on her and stayed that way for the rest of the period.

Now don't you just love these female Marines?

The Supreme Court has ruled that there will not be a Nativity Scene in the US capitol this year. The reason is not religious.
They couldn't find three wise men in Washington DC.
The search for a virgin is still ongoing.
Thy did, however, have no trouble find enough asses to fill the stables.

The story got a chuckle out of me. I got to know a few WMs when I went to MCAS El Toro for NCO School. They were pretty tough. I think they had to be in such a male-centric environment.

Gather as I tell you the legend of the Second Lieutenant.

2LT, for short, is a mythical creature of old which can still be found around, and sometimes in, formations the Army over. Generally harmless when around formations, the 2LT has been found to be dangerous if placed in charge of the formation. The creature's most identifiable attribute is wandering aimlessly around land navigation courses and Field Exercises staring hopelessly at a map. If one were to spot a 2LT, fear not, they are generally benevolent creatures and can be readily approached. However, it is of the utmost important that you do not anger the 2LT in your approach, you must at all times salute the 2LT. Failure to salute the creature unleashes a beast from within that has been known to cause humorous stories which will inevitably be recounted for months, and in some cases - years.

The 2LT is placed in charge of various offices and jobs throughout the Army and learns, as any Soldier, from their mistakes. However, if ever in the presence of a 2LT and you hear them utter the mythical magical words "In my experience", they are no longer making mistakes -- they are casting upon you, your team, or your office a spell so dangerous and horrifying it will take many NCOs a long time, and much heartache, to unfuck. Additionally, when dealing with the creature it is paramount to always keep in mind that NEVER, in ANY circumstance, FOR ANY reason, should you believe the 2LT when they say "It's this way." History, and legends from tales long yonder for mentioned, have proven this to be the one phrase used by the 2LT but never EVER found to be true.

2LTs will eventually mature into wiser, more well groomed creatures known as 1LTs, and many even to higher life forms of the Officer species. However, whilst the creature is in its adolescent state of 2LT it is your duty to take the things you have learned here today and live happily, and in harmony, with your own 2LT. If ever you should disregard these vital attributes and key points of the 2LT, the consequences and repercussions of your actions will be so great that even you will hang your head, in shame of yourself.

Now go, go tell the world of the 2LT, for you soon too will see, with thine own eyes, that the things of which I have spoken are THE TRUTH!

Rest in peace Gsmitheman - This is the post I made in the studio; wanted to add it here for members that don't get here often that may still be signed up for replies.

Maximum PC has lost a beloved member of the forum- Gsmitheman- aka "G" on January 25, 2012. His beloved wife Rose; was diagnosed with inoperable pancreatic cancer in October. They were able to spend their 39th anniversary together on Oct. 27th & her birthday Nov 6th before she passed away November 27th. Gordon has not posted since announcing her cancer; I don't doubt that his heart was broken into many little pieces.

"G" always had words of encouragement for team members & his posts that were filled with many cartoons & funny images will be missed by everyone. I'm sure we can't count the number of people that started folding because of his posts. He was known at many forums & encouraged everyone. One of his lasts posts on the forum is quoted below; his wish was that everyone continue to fold for as long as it's needed. As sad & shocked as we all are; we need to try to wipe our tears & remember this.

Stop by the folding section to show your support for G's family in the link below.
You can also leave the family a message in the guest book; or the funeral home guest book

The team would also like to get a server running at Stanford in their honor & if you can donate; it would be appreciated; so stop by that post too to show your support.

Donations for server in "G's" name

Michael McCord MD wrote:
Due to the profound impact the Smitheman's had upon folding, I wanted a fitting memorial tribute to honor them. Here's what I had in mind: Folders from MPC and around the world could donate tax-deductible money directly to Stanford to a special memorial fund to be set up in their name. Hopefully, enough to could raised and pooled to purchase something like a server or even more substantial for the project. I have talked about this with Dr. Pande who was really excited about the idea. He said he would even be willing the name the server specifically in their honor, like: fahgordonandrosesmitheman.stanford.edu., or whatever name we wanted. How cool would that be to forever get WUs from that server linked to their names. It would always have a story behind it to anyone who asked. Any amount from anyone would help us get closer to the goal, but we WILL reach it!

I appreciate hearing comments/suggestions before finalizing things with VJ. This is gonna be great!


Rest in peace Gordon; Rose & Daisy

Humor is one of the ingredients of life that make it worth living.

I have been sending, what I believed to be, the best jokes that I see to a select group of folders on the team. There are the ones that for one reason or another I ended up with their e-mail address in my possession.

Blondie has suggested that a joke thread could possibly be popular on the folding forum. I have to agree but can foresee some potential problems. For that reason, here are some rules that will hopefully avoid most of those problems.

* * * * * * * * * * * * Joke Thread Rules * * * * * * * * * *

2. No comments - just jokes.

If we had pages of comments, laughing and complaining or going off subject, it would be hard to find the next joke and this would probably fail pretty fast. If you need to tell someone how you felt about a certain joke, send them a PM or an e-mail. Comments etc that slip in by accident will just be removed without explanation. We don't want to make extra work for Blondie.



I want to personally thank everyone that respected this rule; I know it's not easy.

Morris, an 82 year-old man, went to the doctor to get a physical.

A few days later, the doctor saw Morris walking down the street with a gorgeous young woman on his arm.

A couple of days later, the doctor spoke to Morris and said,

"You're really doing great, aren't you?"

Morris replied, "Just doing what you said, Doc: 'Get a hot mamma and be cheerful.'"

The doctor said, "I didn't say that. I said,

'You've got a heart murmur; be careful.'"

COMMON SENSE KIT

Common Sense...
You'd think that everybody would have a little, but that's not always the case. We can help.
We've had a number of customers ask where they could get some good-old-fashioned Common Sense, the kind their grandparents had. They want it for themselves, or for family members, or as a special gift for one of their riding buddies.
Recognizing the need and rising to the challenge, the Staff at BestRest put together a simple but surprisingly effective Common Sense Kit. Features include:
1. A handy storage pouch to keep your Common Sense clean, dry, and organized
2. Easy to install - just slip it in the empty space between your ears, no tools required
3. Small size - quickly folds up, requires no space so you can take it with you anywhere
4. Expandable - stretches to cover every situation, returns to original size when you're finished
5. Lightweight - weighs next to nothing, even when solving heavy problems
6. Adaptable - unisex design, one size fits all, gender neutral, and suitable for all ages
7. Fashionable - comes in every color, matches any style, compliments any wardrobe

Here's what each Kit contains:
1. A short list of the most important things your parents taught you as a small child
2. A long list of the things you were taught in school, but quickly forgot
3. A list of do's and don'ts that cover most social situations, including those really awkward moments when people stop talking as you approach
4. A list of do's and don'ts that cover the basics of riding motorcycles, including excessive speed, poor braking technique, riding in sandals or cutoffs, riding without a helmet, and much more
5. Amusing anecdotes featuring real people who actually used some Common Sense in their daily lives
6. An easy-to-follow flow chart that's helpful for solving simple problems that you somehow managed to make more difficult
7. Warning stickers to identify complex tasks that you should leave for others to perform
8. Adhesive placards for the Directionally Challenged: Up, Down Left, Right, North, South, This-way-to-camp, That-way-to-get-home, Right-is-tight, Left-is-loose, and more. Please specify if you require any specialized placards - additional fees apply.
9. Medic Alert bracelet to warn emergency medical staff that you suffer from Common Sense Deficiency Syndrome (CSDS). They'll know what to do.

Each kit contains enough Common Sense to last for several weeks. Most customers achieve immediate results after a single application. Those with an elevated I.Q. usually require several doses before achieving any results.
Apply Common Sense sparingly - a little goes a long way. It's a rare and valuable commodity so don't waste it or use it unless it's really needed.
Discontinue use if a rash develops or if you experience symptoms including dizziness, confusion, or brain paralysis. Those with chronic CSDS should consult their physician to determine if Common Sense is appropriate for their use.
Most customers report very good results with the Common Sense Kit, which is why we we get so many repeat orders. Unfortunately we can't guarantee that the Kit will work for everyone, so we can't offer refunds or provide exchanges in the event you discover you're Common Sense Intolerant (CSI). Some people just aren't, they never will be, and nobody can help them... not even the trained professionals here at BestRest Products.
Supplies are limited so place your order now. Sorry, only 3 kits per Customer. No hoarding allowed, don't be selfish.
Dealer Inquiries Welcome - we want to get this Kit out to as many people as possible. Millions need it but very few have it.


Price: $0.02

Get yours today!
Buy extras for your kids!!!

'OLD' IS WHEN....
Your sweetie says, 'Let's go upstairs
and make love,' and you answer,
'Pick one; I can't do both!'

'OLD' IS WHEN...
Your friends compliment you
on your new alligator shoes
and you're barefoot..

'OLD' IS WHEN...
A sexy babe or hunk catches your fancy
and your pacemaker opens the garage door.

'OLD' IS WHEN...
Going braless
pulls all the wrinkles out of your face.

'OLD' IS WHEN...
You don't care where your spouse goes,
just as long as you don't have to go along.

'OLD' IS WHEN...
You are cautioned to slow down by the doctor instead of by the police

'OLD' IS WHEN...
'Getting a little action'
means you don't need to take any fiber today

'OLD' IS WHEN...
'Getting lucky' means you find your car
in the parking lot.

'OLD' IS WHEN...
An 'all nighter' means not getting up
to use the bathroom.

AND

'OLD' IS WHEN....
You are not sure these are jokes?

WalMart announced that sometime in 2012 it will begin offering customers a new discount item: Walmart's own brand of wine. The world's largest retail chain is teaming up with Ernest & Julio Gallo Winery of California to produce wines at affordable prices in the $1 to $4 range.


Wine connoisseurs may not be inclined to put a can or carton of the WalMart brand into their shopping carts, but "There is a market for inexpensive wine," said Kathy Micken, professor of marketing at The University of Arkansas, Bentonville. "However, branding will be very important."

Customer surveys were conducted to determine the most attractive name
for the WalMart wine brands and varieties.

The top surveyed names, in order of popularity, were:

10. Chateau Traileur Parc

9. White Trashfindel

8. Big Red Gulp

7. World Championship Riesling

6. NASCARbernet

5. Chef Boyardeaux

4. Peanut Noir

3. I Can't Believe it's not Vinegar

2. Grape Expectations

1. Nasti Spumante

The beauty of WalMart wine is that it can be served with either white
meat (possum) or red meat (squirrel).

P.S. Don't bother writing back to tell me that this is a hoax. I know
that possum is not white meat.

The IRS sent my Tax Return back! AGAIN!!!
....I guess it was because of my response to the question : "List all dependents?"
I replied -
........
12 million illegal immigrants;
3 million crack heads;
42 million unemployable people on food stamps,
2 million people in over 243 prisons;
Half of Mexico ; and
535 fools in the U.S. House and Senate.”

Apparently, this was NOT an acceptable answer.

Two Different Versions ...


OLD VERSION

The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter.

The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away.

Come winter, the ant is warm and well fed.

The grasshopper has no food or shelter, so he dies out in the cold.


MODERN VERSION

The ant works hard in the withering heat and the rain all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter.

The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away.

Come winter, the shivering grasshopper calls a press conference and demands to know why the ant should be allowed to be warm and well fed while he is cold and starving.

CBS, NBC, PBS, CNN, and ABC show up to provide pictures of the shivering grasshopper next to a video of the ant in his comfortable home with a table filled with food.
America is stunned by the sharp contrast.

How can this be, that in a country of such wealth, this poor grasshopper is allowed to suffer so ?

Kermit the Frog appears on Oprah with the grasshopper and everybody cries when they sing, 'It's Not Easy Being Green...'

Occupy the Anthill stages a demonstration in front of the ant's house where the news stations film the SEIU (Service Employees International Union) group singing, 'We shall overcome'.

Then Rev. Jeremiah Wright has the group kneel down to pray for the grasshopper's sake, while he damns the ants.

President Obama condemns the ant and blames President Bush 43, President Bush 41, President Reagan, Christopher Columbus, and the Pope for the grasshopper's plight..

Nancy Pelosi & Harry Reid exclaim in an interview with Larry King that the ant has gotten rich off the back of the grasshopper, and both call for an immediate tax hike on the ant to make him pay his fair share.

Finally, the EEOC drafts the Economic Equity & Anti-Grasshopper Act retroactive to the beginning of the summer.

The ant is fined for failing to hire a proportionate number of green bugs and, having nothing left to pay his retroactive taxes, his home is confiscated by the Government Green Czar and given to the grasshopper.

The story ends as we see the grasshopper and his free-loading friends finishing up the last bits of the ant's food while the government house he is in, which, as you recall, just happens to be the ant's old house, crumbles around them because the grasshopper doesn't maintain it.

The ant has disappeared in the snow, never to be seen again.

The grasshopper is found dead in a drug related incident, and the house, now abandoned, is taken over by a gang of spiders who terrorize the ramshackle, once prosperous and peaceful, neighborhood.

The entire Nation collapses bringing the rest of the free world with it.
