When Everything Goes Wrong

Thanks to Sorrel Forsey-Anderson for posting this on Facebook.
Clearly, this chap wasn’t the winner of a Darwin Award as he survived to tell the tale but he did get a mention as an ‘At-Risk Survivor’.  And it’s not too difficult to see why.  Anyway, on with the story;
A man was working on his motorcycle on the patio, his wife nearby in the kitchen.  While sitting on the bike and racing the engine, the motorcycle accidentally slipped into gear.  The man, still holding onto the handlebars, was dragged along as it burst through the glass patio doors. His wife, hearing the …

Beer and Taxes – Taxation Made Simple

I don’t know whether you understand the tax system, particularly the intricacies and implications that result when tax rates change, but I saw this explanation and couldn’t help but smile in enlightenment when I read it.
I’ve no idea who wrote it and I’m sure that it’s a bit of an over simplification but it does make you think.  I hope it makes you smile in enlightenment, too!
The Tax System Explained in Beer
Suppose that once a week ten men go out for beer and the bill for all ten comes to £100.

Nick Vujicic – Truly Inspirational

Following on from my last post, ‘I Will Fly‘, I remembered Nick Vujicic, a truly inspirational individual.  If you’ve never heard of him or seen him before, you may find the video a little shocking, at least, when you first come to realise the challenges that Nick has  had to face in his life.
And for Nick, those challenges are there every day.  Although, I doubt that he thinks of it that way!  🙂
You see, Nick Vujicic’s a prime example of the strength and determination that pervades the human spirit.  It’s not just that he doesn’t allow his disabilities to stop …

And I Will Fly

If you’re like me, then you can’t help but be touched when you hear about someone that’s suffering from some kind of serious illness or disability.  Particularly, where there’s the distinct possibility that their condition could prove to be life threatening or could lead to them having to face what, to us, are seemingly impossible challenges.  And, unless you’ve faced that kind of a scenario, yourself, it’s difficult to imagine how you would react.
But people do react in very different ways and some of them are, truly, inspirational.  Not only in the way that they face their situation but how …

A Human Ventriloquist Dummy

I’m not one for spending hours and hours on YouTube watching all kinds of videos but every now and then you come across something that’s just so funny you have to tell everyone.
Well, this one made me laugh so much I just had to  share it with anyone that would listen.
And, of course, you should feel free to share it with anyone and everyone if you agree with me.

I hope you found it as funny as I did.
Kindest regards,
