The European Commission has just announced an agreement whereby English will be the official language of the European nation rather
than German which was the other possibility.

As part of the negotiations, Her Majesty's Government conceded that English spelling had some room for improvement and has accepted a 5-yearphase-in plan that would become known as "Euro-English". In the first year, "s" will replace the soft "c". Sertainly, this will make the sivil servants jump with joy. The hard "c" will be dropped in favour of the "k". This should klear up konfusion, and keyboards kan have one less letter.

There will be growing publik enthusiasm in the sekond year when the troublesome "ph" will be replaced with the "f". This will make words like fotograf 20% shorter.

In the 3rd year, publik akseptanse of the new spelling kan be expected to reach the stage where more komplikated changes are possible. Governments will enkourage the removal of double letters which have always ben a deterent to akurate speling. Also, al wil agre that the horibl mes of the silent "e" in the languag is disgrasful and it should go away.

By the 4th yer peopl wil be reseptiv to steps such as replasing "th" with "z" and "w" with "v". During ze fifz yer, ze unesesary "o" kan be dropd from vords kontaining "ou" and after ziz fifz yer, ve vil hav a reil sensibl riten styl..

Zer vil be no mor trubl or difikultis and evrivun vil find it ezi tu understand ech oza. Ze drem of a united urop vil finali kum tru.

If zis mad yu smil, pleas pas it on to oza pepl.

The lines below actually made me feel good

"I Think"

I Think plates are really a huge problem
I Think dishes are too much on my mind
I Think aprons have got a lot to do with why the world sucks
But what can you do?

Like a Black rain, beating down on me
Like a Keats line, which won't let go of my brain
Like that cutie's ass, it is in my head
Blame it on Hubies Manager
Blame it on Hubies Manager
Blame it on Hubies Manager

I Think water are gonna drive us all crazy
And pizza dishes make me feel like a child
I Think gloves will eventually be the downfall of civilization
But what can you do? I said what can you do?

Like a Black rain, beating down on me
Like a Keats line, which won't let go of my brain
Like that cutie's ass, it is in my head
Blame it on Hubies Manager
Blame it on Hubies Manager
Blame it on Hubies Manager

Like a Black rain, beating down on me
Like that cutie's smile, cruel and cold
Like Keats's ass, it is in my head
Blame it on Hubies Manager
Blame it on Hubies Manager
Blame it on Hubies Manager

Don't know why????
Just felt like posting some of my favorite murphy's laws.

I use them more than just 'sometimes;.

Rule of Accuracy
When working toward the solution of a problem, it always helps if you know the answer.

Law of Adult Opportunity
Opportunity always knocks at the least appropriate moment.

Law of Airports
The distance to the gate is inversely proportional to the time available to catch the flight.

Alan's Law of Research
The theory is supported as long as the funds are.

Law of Algebra
You never catch on until after the test.
Jewish Faith
What is hateful to you, do not to your fellow men. That is the entire Law; all the rest is commentary.
The Talmud


Tzu-kung asked, 'Is there a single word which can be a guide to conduct throughout one's life?' The Master said, 'It is perhaps the word shu. Do not impose on others what you yourself do not desire.'

Its spiritual week here at Ruman's Blog.

The Golden Rule

The Golden Rule or the ethic of reciprocity is found in the scriptures of nearly every religion. It is often regarded as the most concise and general principle of ethics. It is a condensation in one principle of all longer lists of ordinances such as the Decalogue.

Day 1.

Bahá'í Faith
And if thine eyes be turned towards justice, choose thou for thy neighbour that which thou choosest for thyself.
_Epistle to the Son of the Wolf_, 30

Do not do unto others what angers you if done to you by others.

You are The Cap'n!



Some men are born great, some achieve greatness and some slit the throats of any man that stands between them and the mantle of power. You never met a man you couldn't eviscerate. Not that mindless violence is the only avenue open to you - but why take an avenue when you have complete freeway access? You are the definitive Man of Action. You are James Bond in a blousy shirt and drawstring-fly pants. Your swash was buckled long ago and you have never been so sure of anything in your life as in your ability to bend everyone to your will. You will call anyone out and cut off their head if they show any sign of taking you on or backing down. You cannot be saddled with tedious underlings, but if one of your lieutenants shows an overly developed sense of ambition he may find more suitable accommodations in Davy Jones' locker. That is, of course, IF you notice him. You tend to be self absorbed - a weakness that may keep you from seeing enemies where they are and imagining them where they are not.

Its time for the joke of the day.....ta-da.....(trumpets sound in a distance)

A man left his cat with his brother while he went on vacation for a week. When he came back, the man called his brother to see when he could pick the cat up. The brother hesitated, then said, ''I'm so sorry, but while you were away, the cat died."
The man was very upset and yelled, ''You know, you could have broken the news to me better than that. When I called today, you could have said he was on the roof and wouldn't come down. Then when I called the next day, you could have said that he had fallen off and the vet was working on patching him up. Then when I called the third day, you could have said he had passed away.''

The brother thought about it and apologized.

"So how's Mom?" asked the man.

"She's on the roof and won't come down."


Post more soon.

My Greek Civ. Professor finally solved the issue that had taxed me for a long time.....Why are animal's named so rough while their meat is named very stylish.
Here is an example.

No one says, I'll have a pig...they say pork
No one says I'll have a swine...they say ham.
Similarly people call cow..beef
deer...veal
lamb..mutton.

Well, that is because German is a low level language while french is a hig class language.
All the farmers and meat herders spoke german, while meat eaters spoke french.

Therefore it was in the evolution of the Indo-Europeans that the language classification was formed.
