Bullet-Proof Glass
When I saw this the other day, I could not believe my eyes. It is a film taken in the early 1930s showing the effectiveness of a new bullet-proof glass. What remarkable is that a man shoots a rifle at the glass which is being held up by her in front of her face. This is supposed man and wife, and I must say she had a lot of trust in her husband and in that glass.


No wonder we have longer life expectancy these days, people were stupid in the 1930s.

Joke of the Day

Four college friends were so confident that the weekend before finals, they decided to go up to Dallas and party with some friends up there. They had a great time. However, after all the partying, they slept all day Sunday and didn't make it back to Austin until early Monday morning.

Rather than taking the final then, they decided to find their professor after the final and explain to him why they missed it.

They explained that they had gone to Dallas for the weekend with the plan to come back and study but, unfortunately, they had a flat tire on the way back, didn't have a spare, and couldn't get help for a long time. As a result, they missed the final.

The Professor thought it over and then agreed they could make up the final the following day. The guys were elated and relieved.

They studied that night and went in the next day at the time the professor had told them. He placed them in separate rooms and handed each of them a test booklet, and told them to begin.

They looked at the first problem, worth 5 points. It was something simple about free radical formation. "Cool," they thought at the same time, each one in his separate room. "This is going to be easy."

Each finished the problem and then turned the page. On the second page was written:

(For 95 points): Which tire?

LOL on the joke!

wow, talk about trust! you are right, that lady did have to have a lot of trust in the glass and her husband's shooting abilities! I'm not sure I would have that much trust in either of them
