The crowd was shocked! He followed up by saying, "That woman was my mother!" The crowd burst into laughter and he gave his speech, which was well received.

Moral of the story: Don't copy if you can't paste.
One truck driver was doing his usual load delivery at a mental hospital, by parking his vehicle beside an open drain. He discovered a flat tyre when he was about to return from the mental hospital. He jacked up the truck and removed the flat tyre to fix the spare tyre. When he was about to fix the spare tyre, he accidentally dropped all the 4 bolts in the open drain. As he cannot fish the bolts in the open drain, he started to panic as to what should be done? Just then, one patient happened to walk past him and asked the driver as to why he was looking troubled.
The driver thought to himself, since there is nothing much he can do or this mental joker can. Just to keep the bugging away, the truck driver informed the whole episode to the mental patient and gave a helpless look. The patient just laughed at the truck driver and said “you just cannot even fix such a simple problem? No wonder you are destined to remain a truck driver for life". The truck driver was astonished to hear such a compliment from a mental guy." Here is what you can do “said the mental guy "Take one bolt from each of the remaining 3 tyres/wheels and fix it on to this tyre. Then drive down to the nearest workshop and replace the missing ones. Isn’t it simple my friend ".
The truck driver was so impressed with this quick fix answer and asked the patient "how come you are so smart and intelligent and you are here at the mental hospital?"
The patient replied..." hello friend! I stay here because I am crazy but not stupid".
No wonder, there are some people, who behave like the Truck Driver, thinking that others are just stupid. So, guys, though you all are learned and wise, but, just watch out, there could be some CRAZY guys in our professional / personal lives, who could give us lot of quick fixes and brush our wisdom.
The moral of the story is - just do not conclude that you know everything and do not judge people by mere looks/ attire stature or academic background.
More on sitting more ...........More evidence mounts that the time you spent sitting each day, even if you exercise otherwise, is bad for you. Need tips on how to stop sitting?
The more time you spend sitting (outside of work), the greater your chances of death within the next 14 years. That is the finding of American Cancer Society's Cancer II study of over 100,000 healthy people they started tracking in 1992. Women who sit for more than six hours during their leisure time each day had a 37% greater chance of death than women who sat for three hours or, while men had an 18% greater chance of death.
This finding was independent of whether the people got in a good dose of exercise each day. That said, those who did get exercise did have a lower risk of death. Here is where I get confused, since press tends to spin this that the exercise isn't doing any good. I think what they are saying is that the total sitting is bad. Exercise is still good for reducing risks, but for the lowest risk you should also reduce your time spent sitting.
I've reported on two previous studies that had similar findings, that sitting is bad for your health. My walking friend Ruth commented on this at a recent half marathon we walked in. "But I get paid to sit. I get paid REALLY WELL to sit!" Like Ruth, my jobs involve sitting at a desk and computer. Time spent away from the computer is money lost. So -- what is the answer? I get regular missives from inventors of treadmill desks. Stand up to do your computer work!
I have 10 ways stop sitting still, which I am going to have to start taking very seriously!

But one day, he became determined to ask her the question. So he calls her on the phone,
"Yes, this is June."
"Will you marry me?"
"Of course I will!
By the way, who are you?"

One night President Obama and his wife Michelle decided to do something out of routine and go for a casual dinner at a restaurant that wasn't too luxurious. When they were seated, the owner of the restaurant asked the president's secret service if he could please speak to the First Lady in private. They obliged and Michelle had a conversation with the owner. Following this conversation President Obama asked Michelle, why was he so interested in talking to you. She mentioned that in her teenage years, he had been madly in love with her. President Obama then said, "so if you had married him, you would now be the owner of this lovely restaurant" , to which Michelle responded, "no, if I had married him, he would now be President".
