Congratulations to me!


Laugh Lab



A couple of New Jersey hunters are out in the woods when one of them falls to the ground. He doesn't seem to be breathing, his eyes are rolled back in his head. The other guy whips out his cell phone and calls the emergency services. He gasps to the operator: “My friend is dead! What can I do?”

ニュージャージー州の猟師が森の中にいるとき、猟師の一人が地面に倒れました。倒れた猟師は、息がないようで、白目をむいています。他の猟師が急いで携帯電話を取り出し、救急サービスに電話しました。 そして、息を切らしながら言いました、

The operator, in a calm soothing voice says: “Just take it easy. I can help. First, let's make sure he's dead.” There is a silence, then a shot is heard. The guy's voice comes back on the line. He says: “OK, now what?"

「ちょっと落ち着いて下さい。私が助けてあげます。まず、彼が本当に死んでいるか確かめてみましょう(make sure)。」




make sure には、確認するという意味と、確実にするという意味があります。つまり、猟師は”息の根を止めましょう”と勘違いしたわけです。

このジョークが最も好評だった理由について、調査のリーダーであったDr Richard Wisemanは次の3つの理由を挙げています。

  • 愚かな人を見て優越感に浸れる

  • 不安を掻き立て、後で和らげている

  • 不可解な行動で驚かせてくれる

My developer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs. But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using WordPress on various websites for about a year and am nervous about switching to another platform. I have heard excellent things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it? Any help would be really appreciated!

Take a bath or shower together, lie naked beside each other, kiss, rub strawberries on each other's lips and feed each other. No matter what you say, some of them are going to do it - even the ones who go to church every Sunday and get straight A's in school. This story drew renewed attention to LGBT bullying and harassment in schools.

Therefore when you are ready to use this medium, weigh the pros and cons and be aware of the rules of adult dating online so that you have an enjoyable experience altogether. The biggest problem with some sex offenders is that they sometimes don't register their whereabouts, and often live under assumed names. The reasoning is such: 'If anyone saw the real me, they would be revolted.
