World’s Fastest Computer

Oak Ridge, Tennessee
Tennessee now has the world’s number 1 computer. See the headlines from the Knoxville News-Sentinel from one day last week.

in Petaflops?

Now I don’t know about you, but I would have thought petaflops had something to do with footwear like this…

I might have guessed that a petaflop is when the flip flop hits the ground with a “wop wop” sound. Or that  petaflops were flip flops for your pet. Or who knows what? That just goes to show you that I don’t know so much.

Joke of the Day

John went to visit his 90 year old grandfather in a very secluded, rural area of Saskatchewan

After spending a great evening chatting the night away, the next morning John's grandfather prepared breakfast of bacon, eggs and toast.

However, John noticed a film like substance on his plate, and questioned his grandfather asking,

'Are these plates clean?'

His grandfather replied,

'They're as clean as cold water can get em. Just you go ahead and finish your meal, Sonny!'

For lunch the old man made hamburgers.

Again, John was concerned about the plates, as his appeared to have tiny specks around the edge that looked like dried egg and asked,

'Are you sure these plates are clean?'

Without looking up the old man said,

'I told you before, Sonny, those dishes are as clean as cold water can get them. Now don't you fret, I don't want to hear another word about it!'

Later that afternoon, John was on his way to a nearby town and as he was leaving, his grandfather's dog started to growl, and wouldn't let him pass.

John yelled and said, 'Grandfather, your dog won't let me get to my car'.

Without diverting his attention from the football game he was watching on TV, the old man shouted!

'Coldwater, go lay down now, yah hear me!'

Meet Coldwater…
