A guy & a girl meet at a bar.
They get along so well that they decide to go to the girl’s place.
A few drinks later, the guy takes off his shirt and then washes his hands.
He then takes of his trousers and washes his hands again.
The girl has been watching him and says, “You must be a dentist.”
The guy, surprised, says “Yes….how did you figure that out?”
“Easy,” she replied, “you keep washing your hands.”
One thing led to another and they make love.
After they have done, the girl says, “You must be a good dentist.”
The guy, now with a boosted ego says, “Sure, I’m a good dentist, how did you figure that out?”
And she says
“I Didn’t feel a thing!”
Have any of you seen the TV series called Andromeda created by Gene Roddenberry (the same chap to created startrek)? I’ve watched it on the TV here in the UK and I absolutly love the show so I wanted to buy the Season 1 Collection but it turns out that you can only get the dam thing on region 1 dvd, it really pisses me off when they do that, they bring out a show, show it on all the TV stations but then limit the release on dvd, whats the point?

It’s about time they sorted out the food in hospitals, it tastes awful.
Some of you may have noticed that i’ve not posted anything for a few days, the main cause of this has been:
1) got nothing to post about

Just watched this Star wars movie can’t wait to see the whole film.
According to the BBC news today:
“A paralysed man in the US has become the first person to benefit from a brain chip that reads his mind.”
My tire was thumping.
I thought it was flat
When I looked at the tire…
I noticed your cat.
Heard your wife left you,
How upset you must be.
But don’t fret about it…
She moved in with me.
Looking back over the years
that we’ve been together,
I can’t help but wonder…
“What the hell was I thinking?”
Congratulations on your wedding day!
Too bad no one likes your husband.
How could two people as beautiful as you
Have such an ugly baby?
I’ve always wanted to have
someone to hold,
someone to love.
After having met you ..
I’ve changed my mind.
I must admit, you brought Religion into my life.
I never believed in Hell until I met you.
As the days go by, I think of how lucky I am…
That you’re not here to ruin it for me.
Congratulations on your promotion.
Before you go…
Would you like to take this knife out of my back?
You’ll probably need it again.
Happy Birthday, Uncle Dad!
(Available only in Tennessee, Kentucky & West Virginia)
Happy birthday! You look great for your age.
When we were together,
you always said you’d die for me.
Now that we’ve broken up,
I think it’s time you kept your promise.
We have been friends for a very long time ..
let’s say we stop?
I’m so miserable without you
it’s almost like you’re here.
Congratulations on your new bundle of joy.
Did you ever find out who the father was?
Your friends and I wanted to do
something special for your birthday.
So we’re having you put to sleep.
So your daughter’s a hooker,
and it spoiled your day.
Look at the bright side,
it’s really good pay.

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – Kraft Foods says it will bow to demands by animal rights activists that it stop selling candies shaped like animals that have been run over by cars.
The New Jersey Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals publicly demanded removal of Road Kill candy, sold under Kraft’s Trolli Gummi brand, earlier this week.
“This is not sending the right message to kids,” NJSPCA spokesman Matthew Stanton said.
On Friday, Kraft said it wanted to be sensitive to consumer concerns about the candies, which are shaped like flattened snakes, chickens and squirrels with track marks on their bodies. The product was introduced last summer.
“We understand how this product could be misinterpreted, and we respect that point of view,” Trolli Brand Manager Jim Low said in a statement.
Trolli, whose products include octopus- and worm-shaped candies, is one of several confectionary brands Kraft has agreed to sell to chewing gum maker Wm Wrigley Jr. Co.. That deal, valued at $1.48 billion (770 million pounds), also includes Kraft’s Altoids and Life Savers brands.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Tiny pre-humans who lived on an Indonesian island until about 12,000 years ago had brains so surprisingly sophisticated that the creatures may represent a previously unrecognized species of early humans, or hominids, scientists reported on Thursday.
CAT scans of the inside of a skull — among the bones of eight individuals found in a cave on the Indonesian island of Flores — suggest brains that would have allowed advanced behavior such as toolmaking, the international team of researchers said.
They said further study of the skull of the creature, nicknamed “the Hobbit” after a literary character, showed it clearly was a normal adult of its species, not a mutant or diseased specimen, as some critics have alleged.
“I am bowled over,” said Dean Falk of Florida State University, who studied CAT scans to make a virtual cast of the inside of the creature’s skull.
“I thought we were going to see a little chimpanzee-like brain and I was wrong. Nothing like this has been seen before,” she told a telephone briefing.
Falk saw features that would have allowed the “Hobbit” to have made the tools found in the Indonesian cave, to use fire and to hunt as a group.
“I never thought I would see it in a brain this small,” she said.
Homo floresiensis stood only about 3 feet (one meter) tall and had a brain about a third the size of modern adult humans. It had long arms and would have walked upright.
“We know from the record that these little humans, these little meter-high humans, were hunting things like pygmy elephants, were making fire and were making stone tools,” said Mike Morwood of the University of New England in Australia, who led the initial mission that uncovered the bones.
NOT A DWARF
The discovery, announced last October, was met with surprise and some skepticism. Critics said the bones in fact represented some sort of dwarf or perhaps something suffering from a condition called microcephaly and not a unique species of early human.
But, writing in the journal Science, the team of U.S., Australian and Indonesian researchers said their unusual study of the inside of the “Hobbit’s” brain case showed it was related to Homo erectus, which lived from 2 million years ago to about 25,000 years ago.
“However, it was not like a little miniature Homo erectus brain. It was different,” Falk said.
The particular skull discovered on Flores had clear impressions left by the creature’s brain that allowed Falk and experts at Washington University in St. Louis to trace important structures.
For instance, there are two expanded areas in the frontal lobe, Falk said. “I have not seen anything like this before,” said Falk, who compared “Hobbit’s” skull to images of 10 human skulls, 18 chimpanzee skulls and five Homo erectus skulls.
“In humans this is a relatively large area,” she said. “It is known to be involved in planning ahead.”
Hobbit had “fat” temporal lobes, she said. “People don’t have fat ones but big ones,” she said.
“In humans the left temporal lobe has things that are important for understanding speech. The temporal lobe also some memory function. It processes emotions. It is important for identifying objects and people and putting names to people and objects.”
Especially interesting was a fissure near the back of the Hobbit’s brain that Falk’s team identified as a lunate sulcus, a structure seen in humans that is pushed forward because of an expanded association cortex.
It shows the little pre-humans were tiny but not stupid. “I almost fell over seeing this feature in something so small,” Falk said.

TEHRAN (Reuters) – An Iranian woman has requested a divorce from her husband on the grounds that he has not washed for more than a year.
“My husband says he does not like water and does not want to take a shower … He doesn’t even wash his face when he wakes up in the morning,” Mina, 36, was quoted as saying in court by the state-run Iran (news – web sites) newspaper.
When the couple first married eight years ago her husband was obsessively clean, she said.
“He spent hours taking showers three times a day and washed his hands every few minutes,” Mina said. “But he suddenly changed … Now nobody, including me, my children and his colleagues, can stand him.”
Divorce is a notoriously difficult process for women in Iran, who normally have to prove that their husband has neglected them financially or sexually, is a drug addict or physically abusive.
