green side up!! (joke)

There was a woman who wanted to repaint her house, so she called the contractor and set up an appointment to meet with him.
When the contractor came to her house, they did a walk-through and he asked her what colors she would like. They arrived to the living room and she told him that she would like a nice, warm color. The contractor wrote something down on his pad, then walked to the window and yelled, "Green side up."
The lady was a little confused, but didn't say anything, and they continued on to the dining room, where she told him, "I would like a nice, warm white in here, nothing stark." The contractor wrote something down on his pad, and then walked to the window and again yelled, "Green side up!"
The lady was really confused at this point but still didn't say anything. They continued on to her bedroom and she said, "I would like a nice, cool, relaxing blue in here." The contractor wrote something on his pad and again walked to the window and yelled, "Green side up!"
The woman was now totally perplexed and said to the contractor, "Three times I have told you what color I want, and you write something on your pad, then you walk to the window, and yell green side up. What is going on?"
The contractor replied, "You see, I have four blondes laying grass across the street."

GONE!!!

SPORTS tycoon Malcolm Glazer has confirmed he has passed the threshold for forcing the compulsory purchase of all Manchester United shares.The American businessman, who set a deadline of 3pm yesterday for investors to offer to sell their stake in the Old Trafford club, told the City he now owned around 98% of United shares - more than the 97.6% needed for complete control.Mr Glazer's Red Football investment vehicle accrued 97.3% of shares when the first deadline for the offer came to an end a fortnight ago.But he has now bridged the gap, meaning any shareholders who have not sold will be forced to do so unless they take up Red Football's advice to accept the 300p-a-share offer "as soon as possible".The announcement is largely academic given Mr Glazer is already in effective control of the Red Devils and has nominated sons Joel, Avi and Bryan to the Old Trafford board.However, it will quash any internal attempt to quell his power even though major fans groups Shareholders United and the Independent Manchester United Supporters' Association have vowed to continue the struggle to oust him.The takeover requires £540 million of borrowing, including a £265 million loan facility secured against United's assets. The Glazer family will provide £272 million towards the deal.Details of Mr Glazer's plans for the club are also said to include raising its revenues by 52% to £245.6 million by 2010 from £161.5 million this year. It means a ticket priced at around £30 could increase to about £45 by 2010.

Archaeologists figure out mystery of Stonehenge bluestones

ARCHAEOLOGISTS have solved one of the greatest mysteries of Stonehenge - the exact spot from where its huge stones were quarried.
A team has pinpointed the precise place in Wales from where the bluestones were removed in about 2500 BC.
It found the small crag-edged enclosure at one of the highest points of the 1,008ft high Carn Menyn mountain in Pembrokeshire's Preseli Hills.
The enclosure is just over one acre in size but, according to team leader Professor Tim Darvill, it provides a veritable "Aladdin's Cave" of made-to-measure pillars for aspiring circle builders. Within and outside the enclosure are numerous prone pillar stones with clear signs of working. Some are fairly recent and a handful of drill holes attest to the technology used. Other blocks may have been wrenched from the ground or the crags in ancient times.
They were then moved 240 miles to the famous site at Salisbury Plain, Wiltshire.\

Blind pilots (joke)

One day at a busy airport, the passengers on a commercial airliner are seated, waiting for the cockpit crew to show up so they can get underway.
The pilot and co-pilot finally appear in the rear of the plane, and begin walking up to the cockpit through the center aisle. Both appear to be blind. The pilot is using a white cane, bumping into passengers right and left as he stumbles down the aisle, and the co-pilot is using a guide dog. Both have their eyes covered with huge sunglasses.
At first, the passengers do not react, thinking that it must be some sort of practical joke. However, after a few minutes the engines start spooling up and the airplane starts moving down the runway.
The passengers look at each other with some uneasiness, whispering among themselves and looking desperately at the flight attendants for reassurance. Then the airplane starts accelerating rapidly and people begin panicking. Some passengers are praying, and as the plane gets closer and closer to the end of the runway, the voices are becoming more and more hysterical.
Finally, when the airplane has less than 20 feet of runway left, there is a sudden change in the pitch of the shouts as everyone screams at once, and at the very last moment the airplane lifts off and is airborne.
Up in the cockpit, the co-pilot breathes a sigh of relief, turns to the captain and says, "You know, one of these days the passengers aren't going to scream and we're gonna get killed!"

Shocking!!

A major new survey has revealed that thousands of teenage British girls are risking injury, infertility and worse, by masturbating themselves into oblivion with the latest generation of electric toothbrushes.
The survey, conducted by the independent market research company,Rabbits R us on behalf of the British Dental Association (BDA), reported that over 82% of thirteen-year-old girls have pleasured themselves to an explosive orgasm at least once with an electric toothbrush, and that more than two thirds of sixteen-year-olds spend up to three hours a day polishing their throbbing love buttons when they should be cleaning their decaying teeth. More worryingly, over half of the 27,000 teenage girls who took part in the survey reported reduced sensitivity after prolonged use of the DIY sex toys and more than 50% complained of pain and burning during marathon masturbation bouts—some of which lasted up to four hours.

Another use for toothbrushes i guess.. GIRLS..DONT TRY THIS AT HOME!! haha
owh ya..latest is..they gonna ban electric toothbrushes in UK..
