When I got the link to flying cars I was dropped back into my schoolboy comic days. This will be funny, I thought. The great thing about humour is it is humbling in both directions. After laughing I realised this is the most serious attempt at flying cars I have seen, and may well start a new trend. I love the safety parachute, for the plane, and it uses unleaded petrol not aviation fuel, so not as environmentally unfriendly as you may assume. And essentially, it may be possible for the plane to have lower fuel use than cars, gliders do! And planes don’t have to journey around too many bends and don’t usually get stuck in traffic jams, so watch this space.
More directly humorous, David West’s Sunday Humour post has its usual mixture of on the edge and humbling comedy, I have not tried the scorpion trick and if you do and it doesn’t work don’t blame me please!
I had thought that planting Apple trees for food was pretty good, but if this is true then maybe not?:
29. Celery has negative calories! It takes more calories to eat a
piece of celery than the celery has in it to begin with. It’s the same with apples!
(I can understand celery, but apples?). Check here.
In David’s post there is a lovely homily on The Jar of Mayonnaise and Two Beers, which is a must to read, and includes this as part of the message:
If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff you
will never have room for the things that are important to you.
That message matches the slide show on page 2, The Wisdom of Hot Chocolate. As Europe heads for meltdown we need to laugh and then live humbly, and maybe more happily!
If you now need cheering up then this video will bring out smiles in everyone!
It is also in the Sunday Humour post as well, thanks David.
On a completely different note, if the Future of Universities is of interest then you may be interested in this event, which I am kind of helping to organise.
Have a great and funny day!
