-4If traffic went at the same speed...no one would get stopped for speeding. Too simple, or too complex?
Was this Year's Tour de France Humour inspiring? ** About Competition Contests over long distances, often clash with circumstances, some dramatic, others squeaky, * where the eyes get, somehow, leaky. There are unsuspected crashes, sometimes with discordant thrashes ... Excessive speed is dangerous - like quicksands can be treacherous. Some myths around the Tour de France told by insiders, in a trance, portray various tribulations, spiced by wry gesticulations. * Mount Ventoux, the toilsome highlight, towers in a moody twilight, veering from dim to malicious, or from eerie to delicious. "Competence" supports the winner, as a guide for the beginner; it takes sometimes a lot of pluck, * with know-how, toughness and good luck. * But fortune can be facetious and a sideslip expeditious - bang - the champ' plunges, in a glance, with the two wheels losing the "stance". Dazzled fans could see a rider, dashing uphill - like a strider, giving up a broken racer, * to recover the lost "pacer". * Luckily - besides some bruises - there are "spares" for further cruises; contests may involve hard struggles, tragic tears and waggish juggles.

I was a race car driver in a past life, which accounts for my need for speed. Is there something in your life you can make a previous life accountable for...?

+4If speed is measured in Km/h, Sound in Db, then food should be measured in Umm/M (umms per minute). The more umms, the tastier the food.
This good old joke is still as hilarious as ever. Driving Pontiff The Pope goes to New York. He is picked up at the airport by a limousine. He looks at the beautiful car and says to the driver, ''You know, I hardly ever get to drive. Would you please let me?'' The driver is understandably hesistant and says, ''I'm sorry, but I don't think I'm supposed to do that.'' But the pope persists, ''Please?'' The driver finally lets up. ''Oh, all right, I can't really say no to the pope.'' So the pope takes the wheel, and boy, is he a speed demon! He hits the gas and goes around 100 mph in a 45 zone. A policeman notices and pulls him over. The cop walks up and asks the pope to roll down the window. Startled and surprised, the young officer asks the pope to wait a minute. He goes back to his patrol car and radios the chief. Cop: ''Chief, I have a problem.'' Chief: ''What sort of problem?'' Cop: ''Well, you see, I pulled over this guy for driving way over the speed limit but it's someone really important.'' Chief: ''Important like the mayor?'' Cop: ''No, no, much more important than that.'' Chief: ''Important like the governor?'' Cop: ''Wayyyyyy more important than that.'' Chief: ''Like the president?'' Cop: ''More.'' Chief: ''Who's more important than the president?'' Cop: ''I don't know, but he's got the pope DRIVING for him!'' Link: http://jokes.cc.com/funny-god/hqbym0/the-pope-drives More
For many of us, Mondays - and sometimes Tuesdays - are not the most inspiring days. "Laziness" - About the Daylight Saving Time "Will you get up, you lazy bugger - just fit for drinks and watching rugger! Pal, you are to work for your living, if you can take, you must be giving ..." Quite too many are no early birds, although rules command the human herds: common people shall be efficient - you don't want to be insufficient! There is no excuse for late risers - trust all the busy advertisers: "Six days thou shalt work" says the Bible and the idea is rather tribal. The world belongs to workaholics, sober crews and nonalcoholics; health indeed is highly relevant, from the manager to the servant. Yet, why change the hour for some dime, and impose the daylight saving time? They say that we save on energy, and that grouches trouble synergy. There are so many grumpy people among the mass of resigned sheeple; a lack of sleep, too much frustration - in midst of heavy aberration. Hooray, this is the idyllic dream, where gags swim in a pathetic stream; consumerism wastes Mother earth - rather than face some financial dearth! Jet-lag symptoms and spring tiredness can bear on steady devotedness, you have your biological clock - don't follow blindly the biggest flock. Stop rushing, allow yourself a break, leave the speedways, pull aside and brake - take some days off, enjoy the seasons - no haste, less speed: there are good reasons! Marianne More
