How many WGA forum members does it take to change a light bulb?

1 to change the light bulb and to post that the light bulb has been
changed

14 to share similar experiences of changing light bulbs and how the
light bulb could have been changed differently

7 to caution about the dangers of changing light bulbs

6 to argue over whether it's "lightbulb" or "light bulb" ...

another 6 to condemn those 6 as stupid

15 know-it-alls who claim they were in the industry, and that "light
bulb" is perfectly correct

19 to post that this forum is not about light bulbs and to please take
this discussion to a light bulb forum

11 to defend the posting to this forum saying that we all use light
bulbs and therefore the posts are relevant to this forum

36 to debate which method of changing light bulbs is superior, where to
buy the best light bulbs, what brand of light bulbs work best for this
technique and what brands are faulty

5 People to post pics of their own light bulbs

7 to post URLs where one can see examples of different light bulbs

4 to post that the URLs were posted incorrectly and then post the
corrected URLs

13 to link all posts to date, quote them in their entirety including
all headers and signatures, and add "Me too," "x2," "+1," or "well said."

1 to post a page full of Twisted Evil

5 to post to the group that they will no longer post because they
cannot handle the light bulb controversy

4 to say "didn't we go through this already a short time ago?"

13 to say "do a search on light bulbs before posting questions about
light bulbs"

1 forum lurker to respond to the original post 6 months from now and
start it all over again.

So I was at the dentist today and I got to thinking as I was watching her (as much as I could see anyway) fiddle around with a pick and a mirror in my mouth.

When she was done I had to ask.. so when working on something like homework with the kids and you don't understand it do you take the book into the bathroom, hold it up to the mirror and go AHA!! now I get it?

As I was lying in bed pondering the problems of the world, I rapidly realized that I don't really give a rat's hiney. It's the tortoise life for me!

1. If walking is good for your health, the postman would be immortal.

2. A whale swims all day, only eats fish, drinks water, and is fat.

3. A rabbit runs and hops and only lives 15 years.

4. A tortoise doesn't run and does nothing, yet it lives for 450 years.

And you tell me to exercise?? I don't think so. I'm retired. Go around me.
Cool

If you had purchased $1,000.00 of shares in Delta Airlines one year ago, you
would have $49.00 today!

If you had purchased $1,000.00 of shares in AIG one year ago, you would have
$33.00 today.

If you had purchased $1,000.00 of shares in Lehman Brothers one year ago,
you would have $0.00 today.

But, if you had purchased $1,000.00 worth of beer one year ago, drank all
the beer, then turned in the aluminum cans for the recycling refund, you
would have received $214.00.

Based on the above, the best current investment plan is to drink heavily and
recycle. It is called the 401-Keg plan.

And, as a bonus... a recent study found that the average American walks
about 900 miles a year. Another study found that on average Americans drink
22 gallons of alcohol per year. That means that the average American gets
about 41 miles to the gallon!

Makes you damned proud to be an American! Bartrod

How to speak English more better.

The following are the rules you need to keep in mind if you want to become a fluent English speaker:

1. Verbs HAS to agree with their subjects.
2. Prepositions are not words to end sentences with.
3. And don't start a sentence with a conjunction.
4. It is wrong to ever split an infinitive.
5. Avoid cliches like the plague. (They're old hat)
6. Also, always avoid annoying alliteration.
7. Be more or less specific.
8. Parenthetical remarks (however relevant) are (usually) unnecessary.
9. Also too, never, ever use repetitive redundancies.
10. No sentence fragments.
11. Contractions aren't necessary and shouldn't be used.
12. Foreign words and phrases are not apropos.
13. Do not be redundant; do not use more words than necessary; it's highly superfluous.
14. One should NEVER generalize.
15. Comparisons are as bad as cliches.
16. Eschew ampersands & abbreviations, etc.
17. One-word sentences? Eliminate.
18. Analogies in writing are like feathers on a snake.
19. The passive voice is to be ignored.
20. Eliminate commas, that are, not necessary. Parenthet- ical words however should be enclosed in commas.
21. Never use a big word when a diminutive one would suffice.
22. Use words correctly, irregardless of how others use them.
23. Understatement is always the absolute best way to put forth earth-shaking ideas.
24. Eliminate quotations. As Ralph Waldo Emerson said, "I hate quotations. Tell me what you know."
25. If you've heard it once, you've heard it a thousand times: Resist hyperbole; not one writer in a million can use it correctly.
26. Puns are for children, not groan readers.
27. Go around the barn at high noon to avoid colloquialisms.
28. Even IF a mixed metaphor sings, it should be derailed.
29. Who needs rhetorical questions?
30. Exaggeration is a billion times worse than under-statement.

And the last one...

31. Proofread carefully to see if you any words out.

The wise old Mother Superior from Ireland was dying.
The nuns gathered around her bed trying to make her comfortable.
They gave her some milk to drink but she refused it.
Then one nun took the glass back to the kitchen.
Remembering a bottle of Irish whiskey received as a gift the
previous Christmas she opened it
and poured a generous amount of the whiskey into the glass of milk.
The nun when back to Mother Superior's bed and held the glass of
milk to her lips.
Mother Superior drank a little, than a little more and before long
she had drank the whole glass of milk.
"Mother" the nuns asked in earnest, "Please give us some wisdom
before you die"
Barely audible and with a stern look on her face Mother Superior
said;
"Don't sell that cow!"
Laughing

What's the difference between Jay Cutler and a dollar bill?

You can get four quarters out of a dollar bill Smile

Blonde wife texts husband on a cold winter morning: "Windows frozen."

Husband texts back: "Pour some lukewarm water over it."

Wife texts back: "Tried it... now the computer doesn't work at all."

Shocked Laughing Laughing
