some stuff that I found interesting

Some of the best advice I received before the first time I had to testify in Court came from one of our older County Attorneys. He wanted to prepare me for what the Defense Attorney would do when he cross-examines. He gave me this as a sample question.

Attorney: Do you know what time it is?

Me: 8:47.

Attorney: WRONG! Now you have to explain when was the last time you set your watch, and how old the battery is, and what clock you used to set it by.

Me: Then what do I say?

Attorney: You say “Yes”. He asks you if you know what time it is. You say Yes. Or you say No. But your goal, with every single question, is to provide the most brief answer you can. If he wants to know what time it is, he will ask that too. If he didn’t, you don’t volunteer a darn thing.

It was a crazy concept, because my impulse is always to try and explain things. That’s our nature, I guess. But in the end, attorneys are trained to try to twist things around and make it look as though you are contradicting yourself, even when what you are saying is perfectly true. They can only accomplish that if they have enough information to work with. If you don’t provide them with anything non-essential, that becomes much harder for them to accomplish. And this goes for witnesses and attorneys on either side.

So if they ask you a yes or no question, the best answer is yes or no. If you can’t, then you say “I don’t know.” You want to say as absolutely little as possible, so they don’t take one tiny, insignificant thing you said, not actually relevant to the situation, and twist that around as either a reason to discredit you and make you look like a liar, or as a way to contradict something else that you’ve said previously.


She said, “Don't call the doctor, I want to fall asleep peacefully, with your hand in mine.”

He told her about the past, how they met, their first kiss. they didn't cry, they smiled. They didn't regret anything, they were grateful.

Then she repeated softly, 'I love you forever!'

He returned her words, gave her a soft kiss on the forehead.

She closed her eyes and fell asleep peacefully with her hand in his.

Love is really all that matters because everyone comes into this world with nothing other than love and leaves with nothing other than love.

Think about it. Profession, career, bank account, our goods are just tools, nothing more. Everything stays here. So just love….Love those that really love you. Love, as if there was nothing more important in your life.


A few years ago, a 24 year old boy seeing out from the train’s window shouted…

“Dad, look the trees are going behind us!”

As his Dad smiled, a young couple sitting nearby, looked at the 24 year old’s childish behavior with pity, when suddenly he again exclaimed…

“Dad, look the clouds are running with us!”

The couple couldn’t resist and said to the old man…

“Why don’t you take your son to see a good doctor?”

The old man smiled and said…

“I did and we are just coming from the hospital, my son was blind from birth and he just got his eyes today.”

Remember: Don’t judge people before you truly know them. The truth might surprise you.

( I bet that shut the rude interfering people up.... )


A woman goes to prison to visit her husband who has just been sentenced to 40 years in jail. As soon as she enters the visiting room, she hugs him and exclaims with tears in her eyes:

- "Oh! Roger, 40 years, Roger.?"

And the husband replies: "Well, my love, what are you going to do?"

"Oh, Roger...! I spoke to the judge handling your case,"

"And what did he say, my love?"

"He told me that for every time I make love with him, he will reduce your prison sentence by one year..."

"What!!! What a miserable bastard and what did you say to that son of a b**ch? "

" Oh, Roger! We'll talk about it at home, pick up your stuff, let's go… !!!"


She is Mary Ann Bevan who was known as the "ugliest woman in the world" but when you know her life you'll call her the "most beautiful person in the world."

Marry Ann suffered from acromegaly due to which she had abnormal growth and facial distortion. After the death of her husband, with no breadwinner in the house, accumulating debts and financial needs of her 4 children she decided to enter the humiliating contest and won the offensive title of "ugliest woman in the world" later she was hired by a circus, toured different cities where people came to laugh and humiliate her.

She endured the ridicule of others in order to raise her children and give them a better quality of life. She died in 1933.

To this day, society judges people on their physical appearance, if our eyes could see souls instead of bodies, Mary Ann would have been the most beautiful woman in the world.


JB Comments: When I ran an escort agency in London ( gay men ) I also knew several 'madams' from straight agencies and I would occasionally go and have a giggle with some of the girls / ladies who were

'available.' All were quite beautiful and at least 75% were truly lovely women, kind, thoughtful and very easy going - BUT there was always that 25% who were arrogant assholes. Beautiful to look at - but absolutely horrible inside.

Arrogant. Conceited. Real Karen's who expected a man to do and pay and offer anything and everything they asked and I am glad to say that when this attitude became clear to the Madams, they were fired from the agencies - as if they offer that kind of snotty attitude to everyone, it did not fare well with agency rules of friendliness towards the client and when sticking your nose so far in the hair with attitude for days - and then expecting a man to pay for your services, these girls, as beautiful as they were, were often left without customers for long periods as no man wants that kind of Karen, and sadly, they never learned.

Being nice is so much more important that looks and as Judge Judy says ' Beauty fades - Dumb is forever.'


The Hippie and the Nun

A hippie gets onto a bus and sits next to a nun in the front seat. The hippie looks over and asks the nun if she would have sex with him.

The nun, surprised by the question, politely declines and gets off at the next stop.

When the bus starts again, the bus driver says to the hippie, "If you want, I can tell you how you can get that nun to have sex with you."

The hippie says that he'd love to know how, so the bus driver tells him that every Tuesday evening at midnight, the nun goes to the cemetery to pray to the lord. "If you went dressed in robes and some glow-in-the-dark-makeup," says the bus driver, "You could tell her you were God and command her to have sex with you."

The hippie decides to try this out. That Tuesday, he goes to the cemetery and waits for the nun. Right on schedule, the nun shows up. While she's praying, the hippie walks out from hiding, in robes and wearing a glowing God-like mask. "I am God. I have heard your prayers and I will answer them but you must have sex with me first," he says.

The nun agrees but asks for anal sex so she might keep her virginity.

The hippie agrees to this and quickly sets about having sex with the nun.

After the hippie finishes, he rips off his mask and shouts out, "Ha ha, I'm the hippie! "

The nun replies by whipping off a mask and shouting, "Ha ha, I'm the bus driver!"
