Why is it hard for a giraffe to apologize?

Because it takes a long time for it to swallow its pride.

What is unusual about the Cayman golf ball that was designed for golf great Jack Nicklaus in 1984?

It weighs 24 grams instead of the standard 45 and has a hard plastic shell with pimples instead of the usual golf ball dimples. These design changes created a slower ball that traveled half as far as a standard ball, which made it perfect for the small nine-hole course Nicklaus had been hired to build on tiny Grand Cayman Island.

Patel came in second, was signed to the Pirates, and pitched seven innings in minor-league play before he was released from the team in 2010.

Three men were hiking and came upon a large, raging river. They needed to cross it, but they had no idea how. The first man prayed, “God, give me the strength to cross this river.” Poof! God made him strong, and he was able to swim across the river in about two hours despite almost drowning several times.
Seeing this, the second man prayed, “God, give me the strength and the tools to cross this river.” Poof! God gave him a boat, and he was able to row across the river in about an hour, even though the boat almost capsized several times.
Finally, the third man prayed, “God, give me the strength, the tools, and the intelligence to cross this river.” And poof! God turned him into a woman. She looked at a map, hiked upstream a half mile, then walked across a bridge.

emoticon Power to women everywhere!

What motivated Minnesota factory worker Charles Strite to invent the automatic pop-up toaster in 1919?

He couldn’t stand the burned toast regularly served in his company cafeteria. Strite’s invention, which browned a single piece of bread on both sides, had a variable timer that turned off the electricity and triggered a spring that ejected the toasted bread.

Next to John Travolta’s Vinnie Barbarino, the most popular of the teenage delinquent Sweathogs on Welcome Back, Kotter was the scrawny, nerdy Arnold Horshack. A two-part episode made during Kotter’s second season in 1977, “There Goes Number 5,” was intended as a spin-off, focusing on Horshack and his equally weird family. Plot: When the family’s fourth stepfather dies, Horshack has to take a job with his uncle to feed his brothers and sisters. The episode was among the lowest-rated of the year, proving that a little Horshack goes a long way.

A lawyer went to his doctor and complained, “Whenever I stand up before the judge, I’m overcome with nausea. What do you think it could be?”
“Well,” said the doctor, “it sounds like motion sickness to me.”

Sheila’s grandson and his wife were coming to visit her in her new Florida condo for the first time. She gave them very detailed directions to her apartment: “You come to the front door of the Coral Bay Tower. Near the door, you’ll see a big panel of buttons. I am in apartment number 1408 on the fourteenth floor. With your elbow, push the button for 1408. I will buzz you in. Come inside the lobby; the elevator is on your right. Get in it, and with your elbow, hit the button for the fourteenth floor. When you get out, I am on the left. With your elbow, hit my doorbell.”
“That sounds easy, Grandma,” her grandson said, “but why am I hitting all these buttons with my elbow?”
She snapped, “What, you’re coming empty-handed?”

Video games, delivered by cable

Today, it’s commonplace for video-game fans to download games over the Internet through services like Xbox LIVE or Wii Virtual Console. But the idea started back in 1981, when cable companies across the US began offering the PlayCable service. Users paid $10 a month to rent a PlayCable adapter, which plugged into the cartridge slot on their Intellivision game console. Then they tuned their cable boxes to the Intellivision Channel and selected a game from four choices, which changed monthly. The system was slow—all of the game codes were sent out individually, so if a user wanted to play Space Armada, for example, the adapter would wait until the code for Space Armada cycled around, then download it. PlayCable was discontinued in 1983, when Intellivision games became too graphically advanced to send out over cable TV lines.

    Law & Order was very good to it's character actors. Many of them went onto have starring roles in the series, even if their arms were empty. emoticon
