and do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.

are any of you familiar with uncle john and his bathroom reader series??

"there was a young man from Darjeeling,
who got on a bus bound for Ealing;
it said on the door:
'don't spit on the floor',
so he carefully spat on the ceiling."

here are a few of the more unusual ways people around the world spend their leisure time: or at least one of the ways:

watching cows fight
most countries that use cattle in sport prefer bullfights-but not the swiss. they stage cow fights, pitting pregnant female cows against one another-in spite of the fact that the cows have no natural desire to fight one another...and can't even be prodded into fighting.
actually, most of the time cows just moo, kick the earth, or push against one another as they engage in "shoving matches" to see who will lead the herd. but that doesn't stop the enthusiastic swiss from putting on their annual cow fight each october in the tiny town of martigny.

there's more to that article, but that's just the interesting me...

sarcasm: from the greek word sarkazein, which means "to tear the flesh"

only 2% of americans say they're in a good mood every day.

movie star, errol flynn once worked on an australian sheep ranch, castrating sheep with his teeth.

it takes seven standard shuffles to thoroughly mix a 52-card deck.

james dean had several gay roommates while living in hollywood. when asked whether he was bisexual, he reportedly responded, "well, i'm certainly not going through life with one had tied behind my back!" he also avoided the military draft by registering as a homosexual.

"death is jst nature's way of telling you, "hey, you're not alive anymore."
----bull, night court

arachibutyrophobia: the fear of having peanut butter stuck to the roof of your mouth

hotel industry study: 70% of people who lock themselves out of their rooms are women, there darby, enjoy that...

and that's enough of uncle john. i was gonna put some shel silverstein stuff on here, but i dont have the right book here handy. oh, well, maybe next time.

well, everybody, it's been a pleasure having your eyes pass delicately over me, or well, my site anyway, 1 or 2 eyes were a little rough, though. yeah, i felt that. you know who you are. i'm off to bed, finally. i gotta get up for work in about 4 hours. yay.

who knew? not one negative thing. can you imagine?? nah, i'm saving all that for next time.
