The utter waste of our $2,000,000,000 a day military-industrial machine was never demonstrated more vividly than on 9/11.

Prime Minister. I will have to think on this. :unsure:

Quote
Your distinct personality, The Prime Minister might be found in most of the thriving kingdoms of the time. You are a strategist who pursues the most efficient and logical path toward the realization of the goal that you perceive or visualize. You will often only associate with those people who can assist you in the implementation of your plan. Inept assistants may be immediately discarded as excess baggage. To do otherwise could be seen as inefficient and illogical. On the positive side, you can be rationally idealistic and analytically ideological. You can be a bold decision maker and risk taker who can move society ahead by years instead of minutes. On the negative side, you may be unmerciful, impatient, impetuous and impulsive. Interestingly, your preference is just as applicable in today's corporate kingdoms.

"As you may have heard, the U.S. is putting together a constitution for Iraq. Why don't we just give them ours? Think about it -- it was written by very smart people, it's served us well for over two hundred years, and besides, we're not using it anymore."

Dan Rather ('Blather' Rather) was seated next to little Tommy on the plane when Rather turned to the boy and said, "Let's talk, I've heard that flights go quicker if you strike up a conversation with your fellow passengers."

Little Tommy, who had just opened his book, closed it slowly, and said to Rather, "What would you like to discuss?"

"Oh, I don't know" said Rather, "How about politics? Should we keep Bush as president or elect Kerry?"

"OK" said Tommy, "That could be an interesting topic but let me ask you a question first. A horse, a cow and a deer all eat grass. The same  stuff. Yet a deer excretes little pellets, while a cow turns out flat patties, and a horse excretes clumps of dried grass. Why do you think that is?"

"Jeez" said Rather, "I have no idea."

"Well then" said  Tommy, "how is it you feel qualified to discuss who should run this country when you don't know shit?"

Nail it!

Amy, a blonde city girl, marries a farmer.  One morning, before he goes out to the fields, the farmer says to her, "The artificial insemination man is coming to impregnate one of our cows today.  I drove a nail into the two-by-four above the cow's stall.  You show him where it is, okay?"

So the farmer leaves for the fields, and a while later, the artificial insemination man arrives.  Amy takes him down the long row of cows until she sees the nail, and tells him, "This is the one.  This one right here!"

Terribly impressed, the man asks, "How did you know this is the cow to be bred?"

"By the nail over its stall," Amy explains.

Then the man asks, "What's the nail for?"

"I guess it's to hang your pants on," she tells him as she walks away.

LL, I can see that you answered the questions properly, and the board gave you an accurate profile. You are a lovely dreamer and a Minstrel both in one. But Jeez, I went over there and took that silly test, and it got me all wrong. Here is what it said after I had answered its intrusive poking nosey irrelevant questions:

"Your distinct personality, The Benevolent Ruler might be found in most of the thriving kingdoms of the time. You are the idealistic social dreamer. Your overriding goal is to solve the people problems of your world. You are a social reformer who wants everyone to be happy in a world that you can visualize. You are exceptionally perceptive about the woes and needs of humankind. You often have the understanding and skill to readily conceive and implement the solutions to your perceptions. On the positive side, you are creatively persuasive, charismatic and ideologically concerned. On the negative side, you may be unrealistically sentimental, scattered and impulsive, as well as deviously manipulative. Interestingly, your preference is just as applicable in today's corporate kingdoms."

Can you believe that? Sheesh and Cold Chili! It didn't say a danged thing about my long-windedness and verbosity, my metaphysical delusions, my erotic fantasies which indict my view of reality, or how outright handsome I am. I wonder who sits around making up such silly tests, eh? Worse, I wonder about those who take the damn things....

:)

Elias

PS: Basil Fishbone, that "Nail It" joke was awful! One more crack like that and I'm likely to do two things.... 1) put your ass on KP duty for a danged week; and, 2) tell one of my infamous jokes right here for all to read, and blame the impulse to do so on you. :)

Well, I can't speak for Elias or anybody else, but I refuse to take the job.


Although (this is weird) last night I dreamed I won an election to be U.S. senator. Which was ever weirder because I wan't running. And kind of sad because the senator I replaced was Vin Suprynowicz.  :blink:  Don't worry, though. I immediately signed a pledge never to violate the Bill of Rights. And then I woke up my own self. So no harm -- and no ruling -- done.
