A London Lawyer

A London lawyer runs a stop sign and gets pulled over by an Irish Garda. He thinks that he is smarter than the cop because he is a lawyer, from London, and is certain that he has a better education than any Paddy cop. He decides to prove this to himself and have some fun at the Garda’s expense!

Irish Garda says,’ License and registration, please.’

London Lawyer says, ‘What for?’

Irish Garda replies, ‘You didn’t come to a complete stop at the Stop sign.’

London Lawyer says, ‘I slowed down, and no one was coming.’

Irish Garda says, ‘You still didn’t come to a complete stop.

License And registration, please.’

London Lawyer says, ‘What’s the difference?’

Irish Garda says, ‘The difference is, you have to come to complete stop, that’s the law. License and registration, please!’

London Lawyer says, ‘If you can show me the legal difference between ‘slow down’ and ‘stop’, I’ll give you my license and registration and you give me the ticket. If not, you let me go and don’t give me the ticket.’

Irish Garda says, ‘Sounds fair. Exit your vehicle, sir.’

The London lawyer exits his vehicle. The Irish Garda takes out his baton and starts beating the hell out of the lawyer with it and says, ‘Do you want me to stop, or just slow down?’

True Detective Season 2: Trailer






This looks badass.  I can't wait. 

How much is work and how much is pleasure?

A U.S. Marine Colonel was about to start the morning briefing to his staff.

While waiting for the coffee machine to finish brewing, the Colonel decided to pose a question to all assembled.

He explained that his wife had been a bit frisky the night before and he failed to get his usual amount of sound sleep.

He posed the question of just how much of sex was "work" and how much of it was "pleasure?"

A Major chimed in with 75%-25% in favor of work.

A Captain said it was 50%-50%.

A Lieutenant responded with 25%-75% in favor of pleasure, depending upon his state of inebriation at the time.

There being no consensus, the colonel turned to the Private First Class who was in charge of making the coffee and asked for his opinion?

Without any hesitation, the young Private First Class responded, "Sir, it has to be 100% pleasure.

The colonel was surprised and as you might guess, asked why?

"Well, sir, if there was any work involved, the officers would have me doing it for them."

The room fell silent

First (Fully) Warm-blooded Fish Found


First (Fully) Warm-blooded Fish Found

by Stephanie Pappas
The car-tire-size opah is striking enough thanks to its rotund, silver body. But now, researchers have discovered something surprising about this deep-sea dweller: It’s got warm blood.
That makes the opah (Lampris guttatus) the first warm-blooded fish every discovered. Most fish are exotherms, meaning they require heat from the environment to stay toasty. The opah, as an endotherm, keeps its own temperature elevated even as it dives to chilly depths of 1,300 feet (396 meters) in temperate and tropical oceans around the world.
“Increased temperature speeds up physiological processes within the body,” study leader Nicholas Wegner, a biologist at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Fisheries’ Southwest Fisheries Science Center in La Jolla, California, told Live Science. “As a result, the muscles can contract faster, the temporal resolution of the eye is increased, and neurological transmissions are sped up. This results in faster swimming speeds, better vision and faster response times.”…
