  • A guy was seated next to a 10-year-old girl on an airplane. Being bored, he turned to the girl and said, "Let's talk. I've heard that flights go quicker if you strike up a conversation with your fellow passenger." The girl, who was reading a book, closed it slowly and said to the guy, "What would you like to talk about?" "Oh, I don't know," said the guy. "How about politics?" "OK," she said. "That could be an interesting topic. But let me ask you a question first. A horse, a cow and a deer all eat the same stuff… grass. Yet a deer excretes little pellets, while a cow turns out a flat patty, and a horse produces clumps of dried grass. Why do you suppose that is?" The guy thought about it and said, "Hmmm, I have no idea." To which the girl replied, "Do you really feel qualified to discuss politics when you don't know shit?"

  • Does it explain franking credits?

  • Have always been keen on these by DK publishing. Not gonna get them on the Kindle despite the cheaper price though — they're pretty condensed so I doubt they'd be easy to read on the Kindle…

    • Agree. I have a couple of these DK softcover ones for $5/10 on sale and they're very good.

  • If you're left, you're never right.
