The Bamboos - King Of The Rodeo feat. Megan Washington

Iepurele este un personaj plin de viata dar "asezat", calm si realist. Îsi foloseste inteligenta pentru a-si crea un adapost dupa gustul lui, unde se izoleaza de tot ce nu suporta: dezordine, certuri, indiscretii, angoasa, zarva si ura. De aici si principalul lui defect: tendinta de a fugi la adapost de îndata ce apare un conflict. 
Este diplomat în societate: extrem de curtenitor si de o eleganta ce îi farmeca pe cei din jur. Stie sa asculte, iar ceilalti sunt gata sa îi împartaseasca secretele lor. Totusi, Iepurele considera ca fiecare trebuie sa-si rezolve singur problemele, si nu se amesteca în treburile celorlalti decât daca nu are încotro. 
Sub blana moale si matasoasa a Iepurelui se ascunde o persoana calma, hotarâta, care poate iesi din orice situatie. Efuziunile sentimentale si emotiile tumultoase îl stingheresc. În situatii de criza, Iepurele adopta o atitudine logica si destul de detasata, care poate lasa impresia ca este indiferent sau cinic. 

De fapt, aspiratia Iepurelui pentru liniste si pace este mai presus de toate. Ceea ce-si doreste este tihna unui loc care îi va tulbura cel mai putin lumea interioara: dupa reflectii îndelungate, îsi poate construi universul care i se potriveste cel mai bine. Estet si erudit, îi place sa se adânceasca în lecturi si sa petreaca serile în fata focului, în compania celor apropiati.
Iepurele este o persoana de nadejde, pe care prietenii pot conta. În dragoste, prefera îmbratisarile tandre si mângâierile în locul pasiunii înfocate. Romantic din fire, sensibil si atent fata de partener, Iepurele stie cum sa se faca dorit prin bunatate si sarm.
Daca ar fi dupa el, ar petrece serile în doi, la lumina lumânarilor, si weekend-urile la Venetia. Este fericit alaturi de cineva blând, care nu este nici posesiv, nici gelos, nici impulsiv. Pentru a-l atrage, trebuie sa fii cultivat, romantic, tandru si manierat.

H2O: Dangerous Chemical!

A student at Eagle Rock Junior High won first prize at the Greater Idaho Falls Science Fair, April 26. He was attempting to show how conditioned we have become to alarmists practicing junk science and spreading fear of everything in our environment. In his project he urged people to sign a petition demanding strict control or total elimination of the chemical "dihydrogen monoxide."And for plenty of good reasons, since:
  1. it can cause excessive sweating and vomiting
  2. it is a major component in acid rain
  3. it can cause severe burns in its gaseous state
  4. accidental inhalation can kill you
  5. it contributes to erosion
  6. it decreases effectiveness of automobile brakes
  7. it has been found in tumors of terminal cancer patients
He asked 50 people if they supported a ban of the chemical.
  • Forty-three (43) said yes,
  • six (6) were undecided,
  • and only one (1) knew that the chemical was water.
The title of his prize winning project was, "How Gullible Are We?"He feels the conclusion is obvious.
A man and a woman were sitting beside each other in the first class section of an airplane. 
The woman sneezed, took out a tissue, gently wiped her nose, then visibly shuddered for ten to fifteen seconds. 
The man went back to his reading. A few minutes later, the woman sneezed again, took a tissue, wiped her nose, then Shuddered violently once more. 
Assuming that the woman might have a cold, the man was still curious about the shuddering. A few more minutes passed when the woman sneezed yet again. As before, she took a tissue, wiped her nose, her body shaking ever more than before. 
Unable to restrain his curiosity, the man turned to the woman and said, "I couldn't help but notice that you've sneezed three times, wipe your nose and then shudder violently. Are you ok?" 
"I am sorry if I disturbed you, I have a very rare medical condition; whenever I sneeze I have an orgasm." 
The man, more than a bit embarrassed, was still curious. "I have never heard of that condition before" he said. "Are you taking anything for it?" 

The woman nodded, "Pepper."
