That’s What Happens When Girls Get Really High…


A GIRL who spent four hours smoking super-strength skunk cannabis had to be rescued when she climbed a 40ft electricity pylon after hallucinating that it was a bridge.
Horrified locals spotted the 21-year-old girl – from Zlin, Czech Republic – apparently trying to cross a river and dialed emergency services.


Police spokesman Jan Macalikova said: “It was a nightmare because she was very much under the influence of drugs and wasn’t in the sense.


 “She was convinced, though, that the pylon was a bridge across the Morava river.”


Drugs counsellors and police eventually persuaded her to come down after two hours on the pylon.
“She received treatment at hospital for her drugs consumption but was otherwise unhurt. She’s lucky she didn’t get a new high – high voltage,” said by the police spokesman.

Prometheus (Movie)


In the distant past, the spacecraft of an advanced humanoid alien race arrives on Earth. One of the aliens consumes a dark liquid, causing its body to disintegrate and fall into a nearby waterfall - seeding Earth with the building blocks of life.

In 2089, archaeologist couple Elizabeth Shaw and Charlie Holloway discover a star map among the remnants of several otherwise unconnected cultures. They interpret this as evidence of humanity's forerunners. Peter Weyland, the elderly founder of the Weyland Corporation, funds the creation of the scientific vessel Prometheus to follow the map to the distant moon LV-223. The ship's crew travels in stasis while the android David monitors their voyage. In 2093, the ship arrives, and its crew are informed of their mission to find the ancient aliens, called "Engineers". Mission director Meredith Vickers orders them to avoid any direct contact and return if the aliens are found. The Prometheus lands near an alien temple. A team including Shaw, Holloway and David explores the temple, while Vickers and Captain Janek monitor their progress onboard the ship.



They find several ampoule-like artifacts, a monolithic statue of a humanoid head, and the corpse of a giant alien, presumed to be one of the Engineers. Other bodies are later found and the species is presumed to be extinct. David secretly returns an ampoule to the ship, while the remaining ampoules begin leaking dark liquid. An approaching storm cuts the expedition short, and the crew is forced to return to Prometheus. Botanist Milburn and geologist Fifield are separated from the expedition and stranded in the temple. In the ship, Shaw and medic Ford analyze the Engineer's head, and discover that its DNA is almost identical to that of the human species. Meanwhile, David investigates the ampoule and discovers a dark liquid substance. He intentionally infects Holloway with the substance. Later, Shaw and the infected Holloway have sex.

In the temple, Fifield and Milburn are attacked by snake-like creatures. Milburn is killed, and a corrosive fluid from one of the creatures melts Fifield's helmet, exposing him to the dark liquid leaking from the ampoules. The crew return to the temple and find Milburn's corpse. David discovers an uncharted room containing a living Engineer in stasis and a star map highlighting Earth. Elsewhere, Holloway's infection rapidly ravages his body, and he is rushed back to the ship. Vickers refuses to let him onboard, and burns him to death at his own request. A medical scan reveals Shaw is pregnant, despite being sterile. A desperate Shaw uses an automated surgery table to cut a squid-like creature from her abdomen. Weyland is found to have been in stasis aboard the ship, and explains to Shaw that he intends to ask the Engineers to help him avoid his impending death.

A mutated Fifield attacks the hangar bay and kills several crew members before being killed himself. Janek suggests the planet was used by the Engineers as a military base until they lost control of their biological weapons; the ampoule. The remaining crew return to the temple and awaken the Engineer. David explains their situation to the Engineer, who responds by decapitating David and killing Weyland and Ford. Shaw escapes the alien ship as it is activated by the Engineer. The still-active David reveals it is going to Earth to unleash the ampoule on humanity. Vickers orders Janek to return to Earth, but Shaw convinces them to stop the Engineer ship by any means necessary. Janek crashes the Prometheus into the Engineer ship while Vickers uses an escape pod. The disabled Engineer ship crashes to the planet, killing Vickers. Shaw goes to the escape pod to retrieve supplies. Inside, she finds her squid-like offspring, which has grown to gigantic size. The Engineer survives the crash and attacks Shaw, who releases the tentacled monster. It subdues the Engineer by thrusting a tentacle down its throat. Shaw recovers David's remains from the alien ship, and together they activate another Engineer ship to travel to the Engineer homeworld in an attempt to understand why they created humanity and attempted to destroy it.

BUTTERCUPS & GOLF BALLS



Towards the end of the golf course, Dave hit his ball into the woods and found it in a patch of pretty yellow buttercups. Trying to get his ball back in play, he ended up thrashing just about every buttercup in the patch. All of a sudden, POOF! In a flash and puff of smoke, a little old woman appeared. 

She said, "I'm Mother Nature! Do you know how long it took me to make those buttercups? Just for doing what you have done, you won't have any butter for your popcorn for the rest of your life: better still, you won't have any butter for your toast for the rest of your life. As a matter of fact, you'll have no butter for anything all the rest of your
life!"

Then POOF! She was gone!

After Dave recovered from the shock, he hollered for his
friend, "Fred, where are you?"

Fred yells back "I'm over here in the pussy willows."

Dave shouts back, "DON'T SWING, Fred FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, DON'T SWING!"

Bell-Mouth Spillways: Giant Holes in the Water

 SPILLWAYS

- A spillway is a structure used to provide for the controlled release of flows from a dam or levee into a downstream area, typically being the river that was dammed
- Spillways release floods so that the water does not overtop and damage or even destroy the dam. Except during flood periods, water does not normally flow over a spillway
- In contrast, an intake is a structure used to release water on a regular basis for water supply, hydroelectricity generation, etc.
- Floodgates and fuse plugs may be designed into spillways to regulate water flow and dam height
- Other uses of the term “spillway” include bypasses of dams or outlets of a channels used during highwater, and outlet channels carved through natural dams such as moraines

BELL-MOUTH SPILLWAYS


- Some spillways are designed like an inverted bell so that water can enter all around the perimeter. These uncontrolled spillway devices are also called: morning glory, plughole, glory hole, or bell-mouth spillways
- In areas where the surface of the reservoir may freeze, bell-mouth spillways are normally fitted with ice-breaking arrangements to prevent the spillway from becoming ice-bound

LADYBOWER RESEVOIR


- The images above are from the spillways located at the Ladybower Resevoir
- The Ladybower Reservoir is a large Y-shaped reservoir, the lowest of three in the Upper Derwent Valley in Derbyshire, England
- The River Ashop flows into the reservoir from the west; the River Derwent flows south, initially through Howden Reservoir, then Derwent Reservoir, and finally through Ladybower Reservoir
- Its longest dimension is just over 3 miles (5km), and at the time of construction it was the largest reservoir in Britain (1943)

MONTICELLO DAM


- The Monticello Dam is a dam in Napa County, California, United States constructed between 1953 and 1957
- It is a medium concrete-arch dam with a structural height of 304 ft (93 m) and a crest length of 1,023 ft (312 m)
- It contains 326,000 cubic yards (249,000 m³) of concrete. The dam impounded Putah Creek to cover the former town of Monticello and flood Berryessa Valley to create Lake Berryessa, the second-largest lake in California
- The capacity of the reservoir is 1,602,000 acre•ft (1,976,000 dam³). Water from the reservoir is supplied mostly to the North Bay area of San Francisco
- The dam is noted for its classic, uncontrolled spillway with a rate of 48,400 cubic feet per second (1370 m³/s) and a diameter at the lip of 72 ft (22 m).

STAR-SHAPED SPILLWAY IN ARMENIA


A spillway is a structure used to provide the controlled release of flows from a dam or levee into a downstream area, typically being the river that was dammed. Spillways release floods so that the water does not overtop and damage or even destroy the dam. Except during flood periods, water does not normally flow over a spillway.


This particular spillway is located at the Kechut Reservoir near Jermuk in Armenia.

The Question


This is quite interesting..

(To women) Please take time to ponder..... 
(To men) Just enjoy the story....... 

Young King Arthur was ambushed and imprisoned by the monarch of a neighboring kingdom.. 
The monarch could have killed him but was moved by Arthur's youth and ideals. So, the monarch offered him his freedom, as long as he could answer a very difficult question. Arthur would have a year to figure out the answer and, if after a year, he still had no answer, he would be put to death. 

The question was: What do women really want? 

Such a question would perplex even the most knowledgeable man. And to young Arthur, it seemed an impossible query. But, since it was better than death, he accepted the monarch's proposition to have an answer by year's end. 

He returned to his kingdom and began to poll everyone: the princess, the priests, the wise men, and even the court jester. He spoke with everyone, but no one could give him a satisfactory answer. 

Many people advised him to consult the old witch, for only she would have the answer. But the price would be high as the witch was famous throughout the kingdom for the exorbitant prices she charged. 

The last day of the year arrived and Arthur had no choice but to talk to the witch. She agreed to answer the question, but first he would have to agree to her price. 

The old witch wanted to marry Sir Lancelot, the most noble of the Knights of the Round Table, and Arthur's closest friend! Young Arthur was horrified. She was hunch-backed and hideous, had only one tooth, smelled like sewage, made obscene noises, etc. 

He had never encountered such a repugnant creature in all his life.. He refused to force his friend to marry her and endure such a terrible burden. 

But Lancelot, having learnt of the proposal, spoke with Arthur. He said nothing was too big of a sacrifice compared to Arthur's life. And the reservation of the Round Table. Hence, a wedding was proclaimed and the witch answered. 

Arthur's question thus: 'What a woman really wants?' 
She said, 'A woman wants to be in charge of her own life.' 

Everyone in the kingdom instantly knew that the witch had uttered a great truth, and that Arthur's life would be spared. And so it was. The neighboring monarch granted Arthur his freedom. And Lancelot and the witch had a wonderful wedding. 

The honeymoon hour approached and, Lancelot, steeling himself for a horrific experience, entered the bedroom. But, what a sight awaited him. The most beautiful woman he had ever seen was sitting by the bed. 

The astounded Lancelot asked what had happened. The beauty replied that since he had been so kind to her when she appeared as a witch, she would henceforth become her horrible and deformed self only half the time, and be the beautiful maiden the other half. 

'Which would you prefer?' She asked him. 'Beautiful during the day .... or at night?' 
Lancelot pondered the predicament. 
During the day he could have a beautiful woman to show off to his friends, 
but at night, in the privacy of his castle, an old witch! 
Or, 
Would he prefer having a hideous witch during the day? 
But by night a beautiful woman for him to enjoy wondrous moments with? 

(If you are a man reading this...) What would YOUR choice be? 
(If you are a woman reading this...) What would YOUR MAN'S choice be? 
And Lancelot's choice is given below... 
BUT... please make YOUR choice first before you scroll down below... ? 

/
/

Knowing the answer the witch gave to Arthur for his question, 
Sir Lancelot said that he would allow HER to make the choice herself. 
Upon hearing this, she announced that she would be beautiful all the time.. 
Because, he had respected her enough to let her be in charge of her own life. 
Now... what is the moral to this story? 







the moral is... 
1) There is 'witch' in every woman, no matter how beautiful she is ! 
2) If you don't let a woman have her own way, things are going to get ugly ! 

So, be careful how you treat a woman and always remember: 
IT IS EITHER ' HER WAY ' OR IT IS ' NO WAY ' !!

Not all thieves are stupid THIS IS WORTH READING



Not all thieves are stupid.
This gives us something to think about with all our new electronic technology.
 
GPS                      
A couple of weeks ago a friend told me that someone she knew had their car broken
into while they were at a football game. Their car was parked on the green which was adjacent to the football stadium and specially allotted to football fans. Things stolen
from the car included a garage door remote control, some money and a GPS which
had been prominently mounted on the dashboard.
 
When the victims got home, they found that their house had been ransacked and just about everything worth anything had been stolen. The thieves had used the GPS to guide them to the house. They then used the garage remote control to open the garage door and gain entry to the house. The thieves knew the owners were at the football game, they knew what time the game was scheduled to finish and so they
knew how much time they had to clean out the house. It would appear that they had brought a truck to empty the house of its contents.

Something to consider if you have a GPS - don't put your home address in it.. Put a nearby address (like a store or gas station) so you can still find your way home if you need to, but no one else would know where you live if your GPS were stolen.
 
MOBILE PHONES
I never thought of this.......

This lady has now changed her habit of how she lists her names on her mobile phone after her handbag was stolen. Her handbag, which contained her cell phone, credit card, wallet... Etc...was stolen.
20 minutes later when she called her hubby, from a pay phone telling him what had happened, hubby says 'I received your text asking about our Pin number and I've replied a little while ago.' When they rushed down to the bank, the bank staff told them all the money was already withdrawn. The thief had actually used the stolen cell phone to text 'hubby' in the contact list and got hold of the pin number. Within 20 minutes he had withdrawn all the money from their bank
account.
 
Moral of the lesson:
Do not disclose the relationship between you and the people in your contact list.

Avoid using names like Home, Honey, Hubby, Sweetheart, Dad, Mom, etc....

And very importantly, when sensitive info is being asked through texts, CONFIRM by calling back

Also, when you're being texted by friends or family to meet them somewhere, be sure to call back to confirm that the message came from them. If you don't reach them, be very careful about going places to meet 'family and friends' who text you

*PLEASE PASS THIS ON
* I never thought about the above!
As of now, I no longer have 'home' listed on my cell phone.
