Jokes You Can Use: Fred met a friend that he hadn’t seen a while. They exchanged some pleasantries. Fred then inquired about the old friend’s wife. “She’s in heaven now”. “Oh, I’m so sorry”, said Fred. He immediately realized that this was not the best possible answer and could be misconstrued. “I mean, I’m glad” he stammered. Then he realized that might be even worse. He tried again. “Well, what I really mean is, I’m surprised”. Paraprosdokians I used to be indecisive. Now I'm not so sure. You're never too old to learn something stupid. To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target. Going to church doesn't make you a Christian any more than standing in a garage makes you a car. We never really grow up; we only learn how to act in public. I want to die peacefully in my sleep, like my grandfather, not screaming and yelling like the passengers in his car. I asked God for a bike, but I know God doesn't work that way. So I stole a bike and asked for forgiveness. If you are supposed to learn from your mistakes, why do some people have more than one child? Hospitality: making your guests feel like they’re at home, even if you wish they were. Some cause happiness wherever they go. Others whenever they go. Always borrow money from a pessimist. He won’t expect it back. “I’ve had a perfectly wonderful evening, but this wasn’t it.” — Groucho Marx I can read minds, but I’m illiterate. “I haven’t slept for ten days, because that would be too long.” — Mitch Hedberg The early bird might get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.

The video became an Internet sensation, making headlines around the world. Some Bigfoot believers and Loch Ness Monster lovers murmured their tentative approval, hoping it proved that large unknown (or assumed extinct) animals still exist in Earth's remote wilds. Good opportunity to show hoaxes. This site includes both videos (the “woolly mammoth” and the original). http://www.csmonitor.com/Science/2012/0213/Shocker-Video-of-live-woolly-mammoth-not-entirely-authentic-videos Science & YouTube From: Richard Byrne (Free Tech for Teachers) The Spangler Effect is a new YouTube channel from Steve Spangler Science. Unlike his popular Sick Science videos which are no more than short demonstrations of science experiments students and parents can do at home, The Spangler Effect videos offer longer (15 minutes or so) explanations of science experiments. The Spangler Effect videos explain the science of do-it-yourself experiments and how you can recreate those experiments at home or in your classroom. http://www.freetech4teachers.com/2012/02/spangler-effect-experiments-and.html Bullying Strategies That Don’t Work Via: Scott McLeod Events & Happenings:
