Water Cooler / 48 hours to ban bee killers
« on: January 30, 2013, 07:05:32 AM »
1,643,470 have signed the petition. Help us get to 2,000,000

billions of bees are dying, threatening our crops and food. But in 48 hours the European Union could move to ban the most poisonous pesticides, and pave the way to a global ban that would save bees from extinction.


if we reach 2 million, we can persuade the EU to get rid of these crazy poisons and pave the way for a ban worldwide.

this needs to go viral, can any one help ?

Water Cooler / Divorce Letter
« on: October 07, 2011, 10:09:05 PM »

Dear Wife

Iím writing you this letter to tell you that Iím leaving you forever. Iíve been a good man to you for 7 years & I have nothing to show for it. These last 2 weeks have been hell. ... Your boss called to tell me that you quit your job today & that was the last straw.

Last week, you came home & didnít even notice I had a new haircut, had cooked your favorite meal & even wore a brand new pair of silk boxers. You ate in 2 minutes, & went straight to sleep after watching all of your soaps. You donít tell me you love me anymore; you donít want sex or anything that connects us as husband & wife.

Either youíre cheating on me or you donít love me anymore; whatever the case, Iím gone.

Signed Your EX-Husband

P.S. donít try to find me. Your SISTER & I are moving away to West Virginia together! Have a great life!

------------------------------------------------------------

Dear Ex-Husband

Nothing has made my day more than receiving your letter. Itís true you & I have been married for 7 years, although a good man is a far cry from what youíve been. I watch my soaps so much because they drown out your constant whining & griping Too bad that doesnít work.

I DID notice when you got a hair cut last week, but the 1st thing that came to mind was ĎYou look just like a girl!í Since my mother raised me not to say anything if you canít say something nice, I didnít comment. And when you cooked my favorite meal, you must have gotten me confused with MY SISTER, because I stopped eating pork 7 years ago.

About those new silk boxers: I turned away from you because the $49.99 price tag was still on them, & I prayed it was a coincidence that my sister had just borrowed $50 from me that morning. After all of this, I still loved you & felt we could work it out.

So when I hit the lotto for 10 million dollars, I quit my job & bought us 2 tickets to Jamaica But when I got home you were gone.. Everything happens for a reason, I guess. I hope you have the fulfilling life you always wanted. My lawyer said that the letter you wrote ensures you wonít get a dime from me. So take care.

Signed, Your Ex-Wife, Rich As Hell & Free!

P.S. I donít know if I ever told you this, but my sister Carla was born Carl. I hope thatís not a problem!!! LMFAO :o)

Tourist complains about sight of fish in harbour

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/travel/travelnews/8743065/Tourist-complains-about-sight-of-fish-in-harbour.html

David Copp came across a fishing trawler moored in Ilfracombe Harbour he took great offence and complained about the ďdisgustingĒ smell.

The 46-year-old was outraged that his children, aged seven and nine, had been forced to endure the sight of 12 crates of dead fish and crabs, piled up on the quayside.

He said the ordeal had left them ďquite distressedĒ and demanded to know why the harbourmaster was not more considerate to tourists.

i bet he thinks fish fingers are caught covered with breadcrumbs . . . . .  what a mupet

If convicted, Billiot faces 20 years in jail and $250,000 in fines

he should be nailed to the tarmac road with 6 inch nails through his hands and feet and shown on national TV to set an example so other thieving barstuards don't try the same thing

Water Cooler / Software engineer
« on: February 25, 2011, 06:13:47 PM »
A wife asks her husband, a software engineer; "Could you please go shopping for me and buy one carton of milk, and if they have eggs, get six!"

A short time later the husband comes back with six cartons of milk.

The wife asks him, "Why the hell did you buy six cartons of milk?"

He replied, "They had eggs."

Water Cooler / best driveway transformation
« on: December 10, 2010, 08:43:02 AM »
this has got nothing at all to do with the interweb but when you win something as prestigious as this you just have to climb onto the top of the highest building and shout it out loud

Marshall's are the largest manufacturing and importing company of paving products in the UK and are a household name

It was the North West Marshall's installer presentation last night and i won the award for the "best driveway transformation over £ 5,000" in the north west region
