All the $$$ in the world can't buy brains

In Dubai...they forgot something very important. All the $$$ in the world can't buy brains.

The video you are about to view is about something unbelievably stupid. This is what happens when dumb and dumber get the contracts. Unbelievable.

My apologies, in advance, for the crude language. Sometimes, however, it is worth the language to learn something important.

The following video is an absolute eye opener. Who would have guessed? This is truly unbelievable. Shows you what $$$ can do (and apparently not do).

In Dubai, they forgot one little item...
The modern Arab world!! You have seen those architectural wonders of Dubai.
However, none are hooked up to a sewer system!
The two minute video below passes a line of poop trucks and never gets to the end of the line. What were these people thinking?
An unbelievable amount of sewage is generated by the new high-rises and there is no place to dispose of it. Camel sense seems about right!
Dubai doesn't have a sewage system for all those big new buildings so they haul it all away in tank trucks.
Look at the number of tank trucks that are waiting to dump their load. This is amazing. They wait for days to dump their load.
You would have thought that by building all those huge skyscrapers they would have enough sense to put in a sufficient sewage system to haul away all that crap.
You would imagine that those building that look amazingly beautiful were built on a well-planned system of utilities. But, that's NOT TRUE!!
Click on this - it's like a bad dream.

Newfoundlander and the Game Warden...

A Newfoundlander was stopped by a Game Warden recently with two ice chests full of live fish.


He was leavin' a cove well known for its fishing.


The Game Warden stopped him and asked "Do you have a license to catch those fish?"

"No, sir," replied the Newfoundlander.

"Got no license. I don't need one. You must understand, b'y, dese fish are my pet fish."



"Pet fish?" says the Warden.
"Yeah. Dat's de trut' b'y. Every night, I takes dese fish down to de cove and lets 'em swim 'round for awhile.


Den, when I whistles, dey jumps right back into dese ice chests, and I takes 'em 'ome."
"That's a bunch of hooey! Fish can't do that."

The Newfoundlander looked at the Warden for a moment and then said,

"It's de trut sir. I'll show ya. It really works."
"Okay," said the Warden. "I've got to see this!"

The Newfoundlander stood on a rock and poured the fish into the cove. Then he stood and looked out to sea.

After several minutes, the Warden says, "Well?"

"Well, what?," says the Newfoundlander.


The Warden says, "When are you going to call them back?'"


Call who back???


"The FISH," replied the Warden!

"What fish?" replied the Newfoundlander.

Moral of the Story: We ain't as dumb as some Government Employees!

A woman goes to the Doctor in Glasgow, worried about her husband's temper and threatening manner.


The Doc asks: "What's the problem, Janet?


The woman says: "Weeell Doctor Cameron, I dinae know what to do. Every time ma hubbie comes home drunk, he threatens to slap me aroon'."

The Doctor says: "Aye, well... I have a real good cure for that. When your husband arrives home intoxicated, just take a wee glass of water and start swishing it in your mouth. Just swish and swish but don't swallow it until he goes to bed and is sound asleep."


Two weeks later she comes back to the doctor looking fresh and reborn. She says: "Doctor that was brilliant! Evrae time ma hubbie came home drunk, I swished with water. I swished an' swished, and he didnae touch me even once! Tell me Doc...wha's the secret? How's the water do that?"


The Doctor says: "Janet, it's really nae big secret. The water does bugger all - it's keeping your mouth shut that does the trick..."

A simple explanation for Social Democrats, so they can understand the negative effects they would have on the economy, if they had the majority in OTTAWA...Sorry Madame Marois, the text is in English...



The $50 Lesson

Last year, while I was working in the flowerbeds in the front yard, my neighbours stopped to chat as they returned home from walking their dog. During our friendly conversation, I asked their little girl what she wanted to be when she grows up.

She said she wanted to be Prime Minister some day.

Both of her parents (NDP's) were standing there, so I asked her, "If you were Prime Minister what would be the first thing you would do?"

She replied... "I'd give food and houses to all the homeless people."

Her parents beamed with pride. "Wow...what a worthy goal!" I said. "But you don't have to wait until you're Prime Minister to do that, I told her.

"What do you mean?" she replied. So I told her, "You can come over to my house and mow the lawn, pull weeds, and trim my hedge, and I'll pay you $50. Then you can go over to the grocery store where the homeless guy hangs out, and you can give him the $50 to use toward food and a new house."

She thought that over for a few seconds, then, she looked me straight in the eye and asked, "Why doesn't the homeless guy come over and do the work, and you can just pay him the $50?"

I said, "Welcome to Canada."

Her Parents aren't speaking to me anymore…..
