John Cage has a composition titled 4′33″ (of silence).
The carolers in the picture aren't caroling...
(It wasn't that funny to begin with. :) )

"Oi caught a whale".
"Yow caugh'a whale?- What yow do with it?"
"Oi throwed it back."
"Why'd yow do that?"

"'Cos it 'ad too many spokes." ;)

And like just about all jokes that have to be explained, IMO it certainly ain't funny now!

Can’t quite read the note at the bottom, starts with Warning and ends with leave the building immediately!
Only earthquake I have experienced, I had got myself outside the back door before I had even woken up!
It sounded as if a train was crashing into the house, the noise was incredible. Ian

The "eyes" in his picture Cabinetman are those "eyes" you can buy in craft shops for toy making etc. They consist of a clear plastic outer bubble/dome with the black "pupils" free to wobble about inside the outer bubble. When the child moves the toy (or when the earthquake shakes the building) the black pupils go wobble wobble inside.

What is noteworthy about that?

Switzerland has the largest Navy of any land-locked country.


The Swiss "Navy" has all sorts of powered boats, barges, etc, for getting around on and across the lakes here, some of which, whilst not exactly of Great Lakes size, are certainly pretty big (miles long & wide). The Swiss "Air Force" operates, among other types, the fairly current F18 fighter/ground attack aircraft. (BTW, the reason for the quote marks around "Navy" and "Air Force" above is that officially speaking, there is no Air Force or Navy, they all belong to the Swiss Army).

The (unfortunately) small picture I've used as my header pic is of a Swiss F18 being moved across a lake on a powered barge. Seen big enough it looks like a mini aircraft carrier. I didn't take the picture, but thought it was a vaguely amusing picture to use here.

Yeah I’d got that lol, just couldn’t read all the bit at the bottom.

It also only used to operate 8am to 6pm - until a hijacked plane had to be escorted outside "working hours" by the French. Now I think they have a 24 hour "Air Force".
