Godwin's Law

"As a discussion grows longer, the probability of
a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches one."
This is the theory of one Mike Godwin; the 'law'
originated in the jargon of the Usenet world, but is
now applicable to most lengthy arguments.
The party dragging up the taboo subjects as a
trump card automatically ends the argument on the losing side.

Sod's Law

There is no definite wording of Sod's Law.
It is essentially a comic explanation of ironic misfortune.
It maintains that a piece of bread and butter dropped
will land butter side down. Basically, in a moment of crisis,
forces beyond your control, inanimate objects,
weather etc will join forces to make the crisis steeper.

Murphy's Law

"If anything can go wrong, it will."* Attributed to
Captain E Murphy of the Wright Field Aircraft Laboratory.
Or is it engineer Ed Murphy of the Edwards Air Force Base,
California? Already, a mist settles on the true derivation.
Some claim the original saying was a slur on a sloppy technician:
"If there's a way to do it wrong, he'll find it", which is
semantically quite different. Whatever, it is more likely
that the attribution is due to that mildly pejorative sense
of pithy, homespun logic which the Irish are said to treasure.

The difference between Murphy's and Sod's Laws is quite
subtle and can get a bit mathematical. Don't bother with it.

*Note: while typing this short sentence, I made nine typing errors!

Stories and news from Iraq after the liberation


Stories and news from Iraq after the liberation

Which one of those Arabs know the meaning of Democracy, Elections,
Human rights and other terms which considered as weird words
when heard in the ‘Arab Nation’?
It’s funny to listen to those Arab ‘analysts’ when they talk against the
new Iraqi Interim government and that’s not an elected government,
and does not have the legal rights to act or legislate the rules and laws
and apply them on the Iraqi people!
Isn’t it strange to hear them talking like that, most of those are Syrians,
Palestinians, Egyptians and many others from the rest of our ‘lovely’
Arab nation, in addition to those Islamists and clerics who have been
occupying our channels recently, those who play the biggest rule in the
‘anti-everything’ opinions

The argument for eating Aliens

Aliens come here uninvited.

They ate Elvis.

They mutilate our cattle, and probe abductees by shoving probes in their rectum and
performing other unspeakable acts upon unsuspecting victims.

They are plentiful, more plentiful than the strained seas and
land resources, and they seem to be coming in increasing numbers
(if you beleive what some people are saying).

They are Kosher meat.

They taste good if prepared well.

According to some,they mess around with the Space Shuttle, when astronauts launch sattelites.

Their meat is safer than British Beef.

God Bless America
By Roy Lessin

God bless America with --
Comfort for all who mourn;
Peace for all who are troubled;
Grace for all who are needy;
Courage for all who fear;
Strength for all who are weary;
Faith for all who are seeking;
Hope for all who are uncertain;
Protection for all who serve;
Wisdom for all who lead.

From Deanie,


I walked through a county courthouse square,
On a park bench an old man was sitting there.
I said, "Your old courthouse is kinda run down."
He said, "Naw, it'll do for our little town."
I said, "Your flagpole has leaned a little bit,
And that's a Ragged Old Flag you got hanging on it.

He said, "Have a seat", and I sat down.
"Is this the first time you've been to our little town?"
I said, "I think it is." He said, "I don't like to brag,
But we're kinda proud of that Ragged Old Flag."

"You see, we got a little hole in that flag there
When Washington took it across the Delaware.
And it got powder-burned the night Francis Scott Key
Sat watching it writing _Oh Say Can You See_.
And it got a bad rip in New Orleans
With Packingham and Jackson tuggin' at its seams."

"And it almost fell at the Alamo
Beside the Texas flag, but she waved on through.
She got cut with a sword at Chancellorsville
And she got cut again at Shiloh Hill.
There was Robert E. Lee, Beauregard, and Bragg,
And the south wind blew hard on that Ragged Old Flag."

"On Flanders Field in World War I
She got a big hole from a Bertha gun.
She turned blood red in World War II
She hung limp and low by the time it was through.
She was in Korea and Vietnam.
She went where she was sent by her Uncle Sam."

"She waved from our ships upon the briny foam,
And now they've about quit waving her back here at home.
In her own good land she's been abused --
She's been burned, dishonored, denied and refused."

"And the government for which she stands
Is scandalized throughout the land.
And she's getting threadbare and wearing thin,
But she's in good shape for the shape she's in.
'Cause she's been through the fire before
And I believe she can take a whole lot more."

"So we raise her up every morning,
Take her down every night.
We don't let her touch the ground
And we fold her up right.
On second thought I DO like to brag,
'Cause I'm mighty proud of that Ragged Old Flag."

Written by Johnny Cash
