Hi All,
Supposedly a true story!!

Subject: The Chicken gun.
British engineers heard about the gun and were eager to test it on the windshields of their new high speed trains. Arrangements were made, and a gun was sent to the British engineers.

When the gun was fired, the engineers stood shocked as the chicken hurled out of the barrel, crashed into the shatterproof shield, smashed it to smithereens, blasted through the control console, snapped the engineer's back-rest in two, and embedded itself in the back wall of the cabin, like an arrow shot from a bow.

The horrified Brits sent NASA the disastrous results of the experiment, along with the designs of the windshield and begged the U.S scientists for suggestions.

NASA responded with a one-line memo --
"Defrost the chicken." (True Story)



don't know if that ones' true, but the exact same scenario was conducted on MythBusters TV program. After the 1st shot, they concluded the chicken must NOT be frozen.

Both my wife and I liked this video, she even put it on her Facebook page. Definately funny; too bad Chevy never made a 2009 Camero

The best part is: "The birds are yummy!" I don't even think the word 'yummy' is in the Korean language.

North Korean propaganda at its best. This is how they control its people. Why do you think they keep them so isolated? If they got one peek at the real world they would all defect.

I was there in 1982-83 at Suwon AB. In my last two weeks there we had a North Korean flight instructor, a major in the NKAF, peal off his flight of students and head south. He flew right over the base waging his wings. This is a sign of defection. He landed his fully armed MiG19 at Suwon. He told us that the N. Korean government had killed his entire family or put them in work camps to keep him in the NKAF. As he nothing else to loose he defected. He's now a millionaire. There was (and probably still is) a standing one million dollar reward if any N. Korean military member flies his plane or helicopter to a NATO base turns it over and defects. The base went on alert, the alert ROKAF F-4s took off, and after the plane had landed the sirens in Seoul went off. I happened to be the flight chief for the 6170th Security Police Branch stationed there for the day and out in my jeep patrolling and doing checks when this incident occurred. Quite the pucker factor.

I've accidentally swallowed some Scrabble tiles. My next crap could spell disaster.

Or misspell it, depending on how it all comes out.
You could also end up with DOCTORS,DESPOIL,TROUBLE,TURMOIL.
All If spelt correctly you could earn an additional 50 bonus points for using all 7 letters.
