I’m back… dammit…

Got back late last night, you know how the race drivers flat spot tires? I think I flat spotted my butt driving for 17 1/2 hours…

Too tired to thimk right now, much less right… 🙂

Two things for y’all- One is a little re-enlistment ceremony, the other are the Laws of Ultimate Reality…


Bad morale in Iraq? I don’t think so…

1,215 U.S. service members from all over Iraq re-enlisted during a ceremony in the Al Faw Palace rotunda at Camp Victory in Baghdad, July 4, 2008. Multinational Force-Iraq Commander Army Gen. David Petraeus led the ceremony. (Photo by MNF-I Public Affairs)

Remember folks, our ENTIRE military is volunteer now- This is about 1/10th of the entire number of troops in Iraq that are all re-enlisting simultaneously! Methinks there is just a wee bit of a problem with the ‘truthful’ reporting we are supposedly getting from the media…

Anyhoo– Humor, funnies, stuff to laugh at/with…

Law of Mechanical Repair After your hands become coated with grease, your nose will begin to itch and you’ll have to pee.

Law of Gravity Any tool, when dropped, will roll to the least accessible corner.

Law of Probability The probability of being watched is directly proportional to the stupidity of your act.& Law of Random Numbers If you dial a wrong number, you never get a busy signal and someone always answers.

Law of the Alibi If you tell the boss you were late for work because you had a flat tire, the very next morning you will have a flat tire.

Variation Law If you change lines (or traffic lanes), the one you were in will always move faster than the one you are in now.& Law of the Bath When the body is fully immersed in water, the telephone rings.

Law of Close Encounters The probability of meeting someone you know increases dramatically when you are with someone you don’t want to be seen with.

Law of the Result When you try to prove to someone that a machine won’t work, it will.

Law of Biomechanics The severity of the itch is inversely proportional to the reach.

Law of the Theater At any event, the people whose seats are furthest from the aisle arrive last.

The Starbucks Law As soon as you sit down to a cup of hot coffee, your boss will ask you to do something which will last until the coffee is cold.

Murphy’s Law of Lockers If there are only two people in a locker room, they will have adjacent lockers.

Law of Physical Surfaces The chances of an open-faced jelly sandwich landing face down on a floor covering are directly correlated to the newness and cost of the carpet/rug.

Law of Logical Argument Anything is possible if you don’t know what you are talking about.

Brown’s Law of Physical Appearance If the shoe fits, it’s ugly.

Oliver’s Law of Public Speaking A closed mouth gathers no feet.

Wilson’s Law of Commercial Marketing Strategy As soon as you find a product that you really like, they will stop making it.

Doctors’ Law If you don’t feel well, make an appointment to go to the doctor, by the time you get there you’ll feel better. Don’t make an appointment and you’ll stay sick.

And one for all you motor heads out there… I got 15 of 17.



I’m back… dammit… — 8 Comments

  1. Work sucks, even when you like your job. Hopefully, they won’t have you hopping on a plane any time soon….ha! Who am I kidding?

  2. Glad you are back, work will be good, and the mass re-enlistment photo is cool. I am glad there are great soldiers, sailors and airpeople out there serving since so many won’t go from the too washed masses.

  3. There should be a vacation to get over vacations. 😉

    I didn’t want to be back at work today either…blah.

    Glad you had an enjoyable time and hopefully your butt will pop back into its proper shape soon.

  4. RT- Yeah, right… next week again

    Earl- Thanks! Too true on your comment also.

    Snigs- YES! A vacation-vacation 🙂 I could use it…

  5. Al Faw Palace.
    Home Crap Home for six months last year. I saw that picture in the Ft. Myer newspaper and had to show it to all my colleagues who had been over there with me.

    VBC is like a bad summer camp… with the occasional mortar to keep you on your toes.
