Drink a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar three times a day and you will lose weight. Remember to get rid of the taste of the vinegar by drinking a double-thick chocolate milkshake immediately afterwards.

Hi All:

Originally posted by snopes:

You mean danaus draculis, I think. Yes, they fly about the gardens of North America looking for human victims to feed their insatiable bloodlust. Once a victim is spotted, the vampire butterfly flutters down, attaches its long, curving probiscos to the victim's throat, and drains the average human of blood in under 30 seconds. The victim can struggle, but to no avail. Once a vampire butterfly locks on, there's no escape.

Unfortunately, that's not the worst. At midnight on the next fool moon, the victim of the vampire butterfly rises as "butterfly undead." These individuals are then cursed to live a life of gamboling about people's back gardens and sticking their noses into flowers. They are easily recognized by the yellow pollen staining their faces, and by the frequent facial bee stings received after sticking their noses into already occupied flowers.

In late summer and early fall, the butterfly undead gather in large flocks for the arduous migration to Mexico. It is not uncommon to see groups of them gamboling southward. However, many do not survive the journey, being run over by 18-wheelers or being shot by people who don't understand why undead people want to gambol.

So, the next time you see a butterfly fluttering harmlessly around your garden, run! Run, run, run! Run away as fast as you can! Run for your very life. Tell all your friends and neighbours to run too! You never know, it could be a vampire butterfly.

Ta ra 'wan,

Ieuan "visiting hours 3:00 - 6:00" ab Arthur

fortunately the average male does release his semen regularly and those testicular detonations (also called Testbombs) are limited to Michael Jackson without access to kids and inmates of cloisters.

You think that's bad? There was this other old lady who got anonymous phone calls every night, and the guy would say, "Gladys, you're a winner!" and then laugh hysterically and hang up. So she called the police, and it turned out the calls were coming from inside the house. And then she heard footsteps coming slowwwwwly down the stairs...

Comment: A rumor has been going around my workplace (many of us and our
clients travel internationally to China and Russia) that people either
leaving those countries, or entering the US (I can't remember which) were
fined something like $15,000 each for POSESSION only of one or two pirated
DVDs or CDs. This is too much for me to believe, but several people swear
they heard it on NPR, or it happened to a friend of theirs. Can you check
it out?

Yet, I could add :

If you fart, sneeze, cough, hiccup *AND BURP* at the same time, then you'll NFBSKing die !

Be cautious.

Same as at 1'000 feet. If you're sitting in the plane, your sonic boom is following you and annoys the neighbourhood, but you'll *never hear it*!!

Basic physics are fun, aren't they ?

On the other hand, if you're the pilot, a sonic boom at 500 feet - let's say over a suburbian area - will bring you in heavy trouble, if not in front of a court-martial.

Does that answer the question ?
