One-Question IQ Test


Ever wonder what's it like to be one of those beautiful people?

I went to a business meeting and met a handsome young lad whose features reminded me of Justin Timberlake mixed with Jude Law. At first I didn't notice the "estrogen" in the air. But when I introduced him to a lady who sat down beside him, she said he "looked like a fashion model." That comment startled me. I noticed "Justin" didn't acknowledge the compliment but just stared in the distance ... as if he'd heard that a million times. For the next few minutes I noticed the discomfort of the lady ... almost blushing. She could have stared at his face all day. Then another lady sat beside him and she too reacted the same way --- pretending to look away but stealing glimpses of him when he wasn't looking. I was fascinated at the interaction before me. I felt like a sociologist watching three guinea pigs. The other women in the table were doing the same thing while the men were oblivious of what was transpiring.

A few days ago it was my turn in another business setting where I noticed people staring at me. Their eyes were literally on me. Being the egomaniac that I am, I thought I "still had it" despite my age. On my way home I found out the real reason. As I adjusted the car's rear view mirror, I noticed I had unusualy massive white gobs of "eye boogers!"

Word of advice: When people stare it's not always a good thing. Check your zipper while you're at it too.

One-question IQ Test
Contributed by Debbie of Moreno Valley, CA

Here's a one-question IQ Test to help you decide how you should spend the rest of your day......

There is a mute who wants to buy a toothbrush.

By imitating the action of brushing one's teeth, he successfully expresses himself to the shopkeeper and the purchase is done.

If there is a blind man who wishes to buy a pair of sunglasses to hide his eyes,
how should he express himself?

Think about it first before scrolling down for the answer...

* * * * ANSWER BELOW no peeking * * *

He opens his mouth and says. 'I would like to buy a pair of Sunglasses.'

If you got this wrong, please turn off your computer and call it a day.

I've got mine shutting down right now.

(You know you missed it too, so shut down your computer)

Seniors in the Pedestrian Lane

SUbstitute Teacher

I might have shared this video before but a few weeks back, this actually happened to me. A very slow senior pedestrian tested my patience. It was then that I got this brilliant mischievous idea: When I get really old, I will cause a major traffic jam by jogging ... or rather walking ... in a four way stop continuously. Something to look forward to. Wouldn't that be a riot?

1080 Bach Performances Free Online
Contributed by Tom L. of Pasadena, CA

Bach Library

Talk about "Bach in The Future!" The Netherlands Bach Society will have the composer's complete works online for us to enjoy. I have to confess that even though I like his work, I'm not going to listen to 1080 songs "Bach to Bach". Ooo ... I can hear you groaning over there! Ha!

Who else but the Chinese could develop these beautiful sky paintings? I didn't know these firework designs were even possible.

What Goes On in the Backyard
Contributed by Rodney of Manitoba, B.C.

Bach Library

I featured this photographer 2 Fridays ago. Rodney discovered more of the artist's work. The hummingbird doing rolls chasing a bee is not to be missed. Be sure and watch closely (around 2 min 40 sec) and check out the baby bat under its mother. Unreal. You never know what goes on in the garden when you aren't paying attention.

Aviation war machines in a magnificent parade. I know there are a few of you who love these things.

Railroad for a Movie

Railroad for Movie

Did you see the Lone Ranger movie? Neither did I. After watching this video, I'm curious to watch the movie. The railroad was built from the ground up, including rolling stock. I think the railroad tracks should still be there, huh?

Practical Tip: Folding a FItted Sheet

This is for you people who do the laundry at home. I didn't know you could do this.

The Chinese fireworks' title is a "FWSIM Fireworks Display".
SIM stands for simulation. If you noticed there was no haze building up.... they forgot to simulate that!

--- Rey of Simi Valley, CA

Hi Raoul ,

Was Justin a personal trainer ? if he is I know him ... I agree with you he is a very handsome lad.
Well, have a great day and weekend Raoul and I always enjoy your Friday e-mails

--- Jose Luis, Pasadena, CA

Justin isn't his real name. I needed to hide his identity. Funny how we men don't really notice these things until someone points them out to us.


--- Raoul

Thanks Raoul
Great selection and the Wisdom of not paying attention to people staring at ones self. The same women staring at the the handsome young man would protest if Men were staring at them. Go Figure!

--- Tom of Pasadena

You're opening an interesting topic of the dynamics between women and men. I remember a saying about women threatened by beautiful women and men threatened by the sports car of other men --- or something like that.
