Three friends decided to visit a prostitute. It was a slow night, So she gave the guys a deal. “You can pay by the inch.” When the first man comes back out his friends ask, “How much did she charge you?” “$75 dollars,” said the first. The second guy goes in and returns with a fee of $85. The first two were proud of their prowess. The third man goes in and returns, “How much did she charge you?” ask the first two. ” $20 dollars” replies the third. The first two start laughing hysterically. “Hey guys,” replied the third, “I’m not so stupid, I paid on the way out instead of on the way in!”
A guy dials his home phone from work. A strange woman answers. The guy says, “Who is this?” “This is the maid.”, answered the woman. “We don’t have a maid!” “I was just hired this morning by the lady of the house.” “Well, this is her husband. Is she there?” “Ummm …. she’s upstairs in the bedroom with someone who I just figured was her husband.” The guy is fuming. He says to the maid, “Listen, would you like to make $50,000?” “What do I have to do?” “I want you to get my gun from my desk in the den and shoot that witch and the jerk she is with.” The maid puts down the phone. The guy hears footsteps, followed by two gunshots. The maid comes back to the phone. “What should I do with the bodies?” “Throw them in the swimming pool!” “What?! There’s no pool here?” Long pause… “Uh …. is this 221-1811?”
This is one of my favorite photos of all I have viewed so far.

Come on ladies, don’t be shy ;)
News on the wind power front! The US-based energy technology company SheerWind claims that, during tests, their “Invelox” wind turbine generated six times as much energy as its traditional equivalent, as well as with cheaper costs that allow it to compete with natural gas and hydropower.
According to a news release by SheerWind the Invelox wind turbine can also:
- operate at wind speeds “as low as 1 mile per hour”
- features an installation cost of “less that $750 per KW”
- increases “energy production capacity to record high of 72%”
- minimised environmental impacts
What makes Invelox different? According to gizmag:
“Invelox takes a novel approach to wind power generation as it doesn’t rely on high wind speeds. Instead, it captures wind at any speed, even a breeze, from a portal located above ground. The wind captured is then funneled through a duct where it will pick up speed. The resulting kinetic energy will drive the generator on the ground level. By bringing the airflow from the top of the tower, it’s possible to generate more power with smaller turbine blades”
As with all emergent energy technologies, especially those claiming a performance breakthrough, there results need to be treated with caution. Especially as
“SheerWind makes the claim based on its own comparative tests, the precise methodology of which is not entirely clear.”
Large-scale availability of the Invelox turbine is slated for 2014.
- Rethinking wind power - Harvard research suggests real-world generating capacity of wind farms at large scales has been overestimated
- Japan to replace nuclear plant with world’s largest wind farm
- Wind, solar power paired with storage could be cost-effective way to power grid
- Japanese breakthrough will make wind power cheaper than nuclear
