Indian Salesmanship

received this from email... haha... good one... do read...

Generally, Indians tend to out as lawyers, DJs and Salespersons possibly because of their gift of the gab .... Read below


An Indian moves to Montreal and goes to a big department store looking for a job.

The manager asks, 'Do you have any sales experience?'

The Indian says, 'Yeah, I was a salesman back home'.

Well, the manager liked the young man, so he gave him the job. 'You start tomorrow. I'll come down after we close and see how you did, but let me give you a bit of advice.. If a customer comes looking, say, for toothpaste, you might suggest for him a toothbrush, or shaving cream etc. You get the idea?

'Of course,' the young man said. His first day on the job was rough but he got through it.

After the store was locked up, the manager came down. 'How many sales did you make today?

The Indian says, 'One'

The manager groans, 'Just one? Our sales people average 20 or 30 sales/day.'

How much was the sale for?'

The Indian says, '$101, 237.64.'

The manager exclaims, 'What? $101,237.64? What did you sell him?'

The Indian replied, 'First I sold him a small fish hook. Then I sold him a medium fishhook. Then I sold him a larger fishhook. Then I sold him a new fishing rod. Then I asked him where he was going fishing, and he said down at the coast, so I told him he was going to need a boat, so we went down to the boat department, and I sold him that twin engine Chris Craft. Then he said he didn't think his Honda Civic would pull it, so I took him down to the automotive department and sold him that 4x4 Pajero.'

The manager says 'You mean a guy came in here to buy a fish hook and you sold him a boat and truck?!'

The Indian says, 'No, no, no, he came in here to buy a box of Kotex for his wife and I said, 'Well, since your weekend's already screwed up you might as well go fishing!!'

I NEED YOUR HELP (email spam)

received this from email... think it's a spam or sent by virus...

Good day Dear,

I am Paul Olds, son of late Mr. Martin Olds, a farmer from republic of Zimbabwe, you may be aware of what happened and what is still happening in my country years back, it was very long story but my reason for contacting you is for your assistance and the benefit of both of us.

My father being one of the few rich and successful farmers in our country was victimized because of his opposition to Mugabe's policies. Mugabe's supporters invaded my father's farm and burnt everything in the farm, shot my father and made away with a lot of items in my father's farm.

Please see the following web pages for more understanding about my father:

My father before his death deposited with one of the Bank in Accra Ghana the sum of US$ 4 Million United States Dollars, with the sole aim of buying water dredging company/equipments in setting up of a dredging firm in Ghana.

Due to the constant insecurity in Zimbabwe, we have to run for our dear life to Republic of Ghana, with the assistance of United nation official we are able to arrive Ghana under United Nation Immunity, unfortunately my beloved Mother died and left me with my only junior brother Mike who is seriously sick now in the refugee camp, I will need your help to secure the fund my late Father deposited here in Ghana to your country and plan for the investment as I have no knowledge of business, due to the nature of my stay here, I don't normally go out , because we are staying at refugee camp, therefore I urge you to assist me get the fund out to your place so that I will plan for my life.

We have prepared to give you 40% from the total amount for your effort of assisting us, all the documents of the deposited fund is with me, you will go through it when I will send them to you as we proceed.

Kindly get back to me.
As soon as I hear from you, I will send you other details about the money.

Thanks for your response.
Olds Paul Jr.

First confirm case of Influenza A (H1N1) in Singapore

The patient is currently being treated at the Communicable Disease Centre at Tan Tock Seng Hospital and is in stable condition.

The patient is a 22-year-old Singaporean woman who was in New York from May 14-24.
She arrived back in Singapore from New York on SQ25 on 26 May at 6.30am.
She began to develop a cough while onboard.
She passed the thermal scanner uneventfully as she did not have fever then.

Later in the morning, she consulted a GP who decided to send her to TTSH via a 993 ambulance, given her travel history.

She was immediately admitted for testing. Laboratory confirmation of her infection was made by midnight of 26 May.

The patient has been vigilant in monitoring her own condition and had sought immediate medical attention once she realized that she was unwell.

Her attending GP, through his quick response in activating the 993 ambulance for the patient, had also helped to minimize the spread of infection from this case.

The Health Ministry says it has initiated contact tracing of her close contacts. They will be quarantined and provided with antiviral prophylaxis.

Passengers who had travelled in the same flight and were seated in rows 52 to 58 are urged to call the hotline at 1800-333 9999 to enable the MOH to check on their health condition.

The MOH adds that all medical practitioners and healthcare institutions should continue to be vigilant to suspect cases.

Singapore will continue with temperature screening for passengers entering Singapore at all checkpoints (land, sea and air).

All passengers passing through or entering Singapore are given Health Alert Notices on board their flights, advising them to monitor their own health if they have been to affected areas and to seek medical attention immediately if they are not well.

Beware of fake DBS website

received the following info from email... be careful when going to DBS Internet-Banking...

Last night at around 8:20 pm, I tried to log on to DBS internet banking. I clicked on my Favorites and I was brought to the website below. If you are a DBS i-banking user, you will readily notice that this website seems to be different as it is asking you for your DBS iB secure PIN right on the first page. Typically, you will only be asked for the DBS iB secure PIN after
you have successfully keyed in your User ID and Password. In any case, since I did not suspect anything wrong, I keyed in the three numbers required. After I have entered the numbers, a new webpage appeared saying that I should wait for the SMS One Time Password (OTP). I waited for a few seconds and none came.

That's when I suspected that something was wrong. So I called up DBS hotline and I was told that the website below is NOT their website. So DBS immediately cancelled my i-banking services and verified that none of my monies were transferred.

When I used my home computer and my colleague's office computer this morning to log on to DBS again, thankfully I was brought to the right website.

I think that either my office computer or DBS' website (or both) had been compromised. In any case, I sent DBS a print-screen copy of the website as well as details of the URL. They said they will investigate. The customer service officer said that there are some cases similar to mine that have been reported to them previously.

See attached to see how fake DBS website looks like:

Ball pits in the children's play area

received this from email...


McDonalds, Burger king, Time Zone... All places with ball pits in the children's play area.
One of my sons lost his watch, and was very upset. We dug and dug in those balls, trying to find his watch.
Instead, we found vomit, food, faeces, and other stuff I do not want to discuss.

I went to the manager and raised hell. Come to find out, the ball pit is only cleaned out once a month. I have doubts that it is even done that often.
My kids will never play in another ball pit.

Some of you might not be parents, but you may have nieces, nephews, grandchildren, or friends with children.

This will pertain to you too. As I read the following, my heart sank.

I urge each and every one of you to pass this on to as many people as you can. I cannot stress how important this is!

Hi. My name is Lauren Archer, my son Kevin and I lived in Melbourne, Australia.
On October 2nd, 1999 I took my only son to McDonald's for his 3rd birthday.

After he finished lunch, I allowed him to play in the ball pit. When he started whining later on, I asked him what was wrong, he pointed to the back of his pull-up and simply said "Mommy, it hurts." I couldn't find anything wrong with him at that time. I bathed him when we got home, and it was at that point when I found a welt on his left buttock.

Upon investigating, it seemed as if there was something like a splinter under
the welt. I made an appointment to see the doctor the next day, but soon he started vomiting and shaking, then his eyes rolled back into his head. From there, we went to the emergency room. He died later that night.

It turned out that the welt on his buttock was the tip of a hypodermic needle that had broken off inside.

The autopsy revealed that Kevin had died from a heroine overdose. The next week, the police removed the balls from the ball pit. There was rotten food, several hypodermic needles: some full, some used; knives, half-eaten candy, diapers, faeces, and the stench of urine.

Don't think it's just McDonald's either. A little boy had been playing in a ball pit @ a Burger King & started complaining of his legs hurting. He later died too. He was found to have snake bites all over his legs & buttocks. When they cleaned the ball pit they found that there was a snake's nest in the ball pit. He had suffered numerous bites from a very poisonous snake.

Repost this if it scares the crap out of you!! Repost this if you care about kids!! Please forward this to all loving mothers, fathers and anyone who loves and cares for children!! What has this world come to?? If a child is not safe in a child's play area then where??

Memoirs of IMH

received this from email...

Record I
Patient A: "So how... this book not bad yah?"
Patient B: "Yah agree, excellent! Astounding work. No nonsense, sharp and concise to the point. But there's a major flaw in this piece of art – too many character names to remember!!!"
Nurse: "Hey! Can the two of you put the telephone book back to the original place?"

Record II
A doctor asked a patient: "If I were to cut one of your ears off, what will happen to you?"
Patient: "Then I will not be able to hear..."
Doctor: "Hmm…that's if I were to cut your other ear off, what will happen then?"
Patient: "I will not be able to see..."
The doctor became nervous and asked: "Why would you not see then???"
Patient: "Because my spectacles will fall off..."

Record III
IMH has an old lady who wears black, carries a black umbrella and squats at the entrance to the IMH everyday without fail, rain or shine.
The doctor wanted to administer treatment for her but decided to understand her behavior first.
So, the doctor also wears black and carries a black umbrella; squatted besides her everyday. The days go by...the two of them squatted side-by-side w/o a single exchange of word. After one solid month, the old lady finally broke the silence and asked the doctor: "Err...Excuse me! Are you also a mushroom?"

Record IV
A nurse saw a patient writing a letter. She got curious and went to take a peek. But the patient didn't wanna let her see.
Nurse (unable to contain her curiosity): "Who are you writing to?"
Patient: "I'm writing a letter to myself..."
Her curiosity grew and she thought to herself (Why would someone write a letter to himself?)
So she asked again: "So...what's written inside?"
Patient (got impatient): "You crazy ah? I haven't received the letter, how would I know??"

Record V
Two patients escape from the IMH. They climbed up a tree and one of them fell from the tree and started rolling on the ground.
After a while, the patient below shouted to the one on top: "Hey! How come you are not coming down yet?"
The patient on top replied: "No. no...I can't...I'm not ripe yet"

Record VI
One patient visited the doctor: "Doc...How? I think I'm a chicken since the day I was born..."
Doctor: "Wah! That’s very serious...Why do you only come and seek treatment now?"
Patient: "Because my family needs me to hatch the eggs..."

Record VII
One truck driver was doing his usual delivery to IMH.
He discovered a flat tyre when he was about to go home. He jacked up the truck and took the flat tyre down. When he was about to fix the spare tyre, he accidentally dropped all the bolts into the drain. As he can't fish the bolts out, he started to panic.
One patient happened to walk past and asked the driver what happened.
The driver thought to himself, since there's nothing much he can do; he told the patient the whole incident.
The patient laughed at him & said "can't even fix such a simple wonder you are destined to be a truck driver..."
Here’s what you can do, take one bolt each from the other 3 tyres and fix it onto this tyre. Then drive to the nearest workshop and replace the missing ones, easy as that"
The driver was very impressed and asked "You're so smart but why do are you here at the IMH?"
Patient replied: "Hello, I stay here because I'm crazy not STUPID!"

Malaysia confirm first case of H1N1

KUALA LUMPUR - Malaysia's top health official Friday confirmed the country's first case of Influenza A (H1N1) amid fears that some of those exposed to the infected patient could have gone on to Indonesia.

"I can confirm (that it) is the first case in Malaysia," health ministry director general Ismail Merican told AFP.

Acting health minister Kong Cho Ha, who addressed a hastily-convened press conference later, said the patient was a 21-year-old male student who arrived on a flight from the United States on May 13, giving no further details on his identity.

He said the patient came down with fever, sore throat and body aches the next day and was admitted to the Sungai Buloh quarantine facility in central Selangor state on the same evening and is now in stable condition.

He said five family members who live with the patient have been placed under home quarantine in order to monitor their condition.

The government has urged all passengers who travelled on Malaysian Airlines flight MH091 from Newark in the United States to Kuala Lumpur, that landed at 7.15am on May 13 to contact the ministry for further instructions.

"No passengers have been quarantined, we are still trying to trace them," Kong said of the 199 passengers and crew onboard the flight. "We will segregate them (when located). If they have no signs (of the disease) they can go after a certain number of days," he added.

However, he said there was a fear that some of those exposed to the infected patient may have gone on to Indonesia.

"We mention Indonesia because that flight is a code share with (Indonesian carrier) Garuda so the assumption is that there could be some passengers going to Indonesia," he added.

Officials could not immediately confirm how many Indonesians were on board nor if any passengers continued onto Indonesia.

Kong said Malaysia's alert level would remain the same despite its first confirmed H1N1 flu case as the country was already at its highest state of preparedness since the World Health Organisation raised its flu alert to phase five out of six.

Copy & Paste (joke)

A popular motivational speaker was entertaining his audience.

He Said:
"The best years of my life were spent in the arms of a woman who wasn't my wife !"

The audience was in silence and shock.
The speaker added: "And that woman was my mother!"

Laughter and applause.

A week later, a top manager trained by the motivational speaker tried to crack this very effective joke at home.
He was a bit foggy after a drink.
He said loudly to his wife who was preparing dinner,
"The greatest years of my life were spent in the arms of a woman who was not my wife!"

The wife went ; "ah!" with shock and rage.
Standing there for 20 seconds trying to recall the second half of the joke, the manager finally blurted out "...and I can't remember who she was !"

By the time the manager regained his consciousness, he was on a hospital bed nursing burns from boiling water

Moral of the story: Don't copy if you can't paste!

Little Johnny is at it again....

A new teacher was trying to make use of her psychology courses. She started her class by saying, 'Everyone who thinks they're stupid, stand up!' After a few seconds, Little Johnny stood up. The teacher said, 'Do you think you're stupid, Little Johnny?' 'No, ma'am, but I hate to see you standing there all by yourself!'

* * * * * * * * * * *

Little Johnny watched, fascinated, as his mother smoothed cold cream on her face. 'Why do you do that, mommy?' he asked. 'To make myself beautiful,' said his mother, who then began removing the cream with a tissue. 'What's the matter?' asked Little Johnny. 'Giving up?'

* * * * * * * * * * *

The math teacher saw that little Johnny wasn't paying attention in class. She called on him and said, 'Johnny! What are 2 and 4 and 28 and 44?' Little Johnny quickly replied, 'NBC, FOX, ESPN and the Cartoon Network!'

* * * * * * * * * * *

Little Johnny's kindergarten class was on a field trip to their local police station where they saw pictures tacked to a bulletin board of the 10 most wanted criminals. One of the youngsters pointed to a picture and asked if it really was the photo of a wanted person. 'Yes,' said the policeman. 'The detectives want very badly to capture him.' Little Johnny asked, 'Why didn't you keep him when you took his picture ?'

* * * * * * * * * * *

Little Johnny attended a horse auction with his father. He watched as his father moved from horse to horse, running his hands up and down the horse's legs and rump, and chest. After a few minutes, Johnny asked, 'Dad, why are you doing that?' His father replied, 'Because when I'm buying horses, I have to make sure that they are healthy and in good shape before I buy. Johnny, looking worried, said, 'Dad, I think the UPS guy wants to buy Mom .'

Famous Amos Cookie Recipe

received this from email...

Try the recipe... when you go to Famous Amos Café, Bangsar

This is a true story

My daughter and I had just finished a muffin at Famous Amos Café in Bangsar & decided to have some cookies. Because both of us are such a cookie lovers, we decided to try the "Hawaiian
Nut Cookie".

It was so excellent that I asked if they would give me the recipe and the waitress said with a small frown "I'm afraid cannot". Well I said, "Would you let me buy the recipe?"

With a cute smile, she said "YES". I asked how much and she responded, "only two fifty, it's a
great deal!" I said with approval, "Just add it to my bill"

Thirty days later, I received my VISA statement from Famous Amos and it was RM285.00. I
looked again and remembered I had only spent RM9.95 for two muffins and about RM20.00 for a pie. As I glanced at the bottom of the statement, it said, "cookie recipe - RM250.00". That's

I called the Famous Amos's Accounting Dept. and told them that the waitress said it was "two-fifty", which clearly does not mean "two hundred and fifty dollars" by any POSSIBLE interpretation of the phrase. Famous Amos refused to budge... They would not refund my money, because according to them, "What the waitress told you is not our problem. You have already seen the recipe - we absolutely will not refund your money at this point."

I explain to her the criminal statues which govern fraud in Malaysia . I threatened to refer them to police for engaging in fraud. I was basically told, "Do what you want, we don't care, and we're
not refunding your money." I waited for a moment, thinking of how I could get even, or even try to get any of my money back. I just said, "Okay, you people got my RM2-50.00 , and now I'm going to have a RM250.00 worth of fun."

I told her that I was going to see to it that every cookie lover in Malaysia with an email account
has a RM250.00 cookie recipe from Famous Amos...for free... She replied, "I wish you wouldn't
do this" I said, "Well you should have thought of that before you stole from me", and slammed
down the phone on her.

So, here it is!!! Please, please please pass it on to everyone you can possibly think of. I paid RM250.00 dollars for this...I don't want Famous Amos to ever get another cent off of this recipe.....

Recipe may be halved:
2 cups butter
4 cups flour
2 tsp. baking soda
2 cups granulated sugar
2 cups brown sugar
5 cups blended oatmeal (measure oatmeal & blend in blender to a fine powder)
24 oz. chocolate chips
1 tsp. salt
18 oz. Cadbury bar (grated)
4 eggs
2 tsp. baking powder
3 cups chopped nuts (your choice)
2 tsp. vanilla
cream the butter and both sugars. Add eggs and vanilla; mix together with flour, oatmeal, salt,
baking powder, and soda. Add chocolate chips, Cadbury bar and nuts. Roll into balls and place
two inches apart on a cookie sheet.. bake for 10 minutes at 375 degrees. Makes 122 cookies...

The Spirit of Singaporeans

received this from email...

One day a plane crash into an unchartered forest. there were a handful of survivors, each from a different nationality. (due to eroded memory it's down to only - japanese, chinese, german, american, french, mexican and singaporean)

they wandered through the thick undergrowth and eventually reach civillisation. a tribe to be exact. unfortunately for them the tribe is hostile and captured them.

tribe leader: the prophecy is true!!!! 7 outlanders have arrived! the doomsday is near! we must make an Ark with their skins n cross the rivers to find a new home in far away lands!!!

and so, to honor their human sacrifice, each survivor is allowed to die according to their customs.
The tribe executor went up to the mexican with an array of weapons. The mexican snatched the american's wallet and escape. But was speared to death while crossing their tribal border.

The german, all solemn, picked up a handgun, without saying anything, shot himself in the head.

The fat american kid went rapping "yo, dats no cool nigga, yo!" picks up the handgun, and starts shooting blindly at the tribal warriors, missing all his shots. "oh fuck" he says as the tribal warriors speared him to death.

The french starts scolding the tribal warrior and refuse to do anything. The warrior was so furious with his stuck up attitude and slit the french's throat.

the japanese, very quickly snatched a samurai sword, slashing the warrior and 2 of his bodyguards, then commit senpukku.

the chinese, all furious, grabbed a sabre, and using his chinese kungfu, killed 12 tribal warriors before being defeated.

Having so many of his men died to asians, the tribal leader ordered maximum security when they come to the singaporean, who closely resembles the japanese and chinese.

the singaporean reject the array of weapons. took out a set of cutlery he stolen from the plane, and start stabbing him self ALL OVER. all the while mumbling something repeatedly as if in a trance.

the tribe was shocked. they have never seen such a way of dying and cannot fathom what reason could give birth to such a custom. and so the tribal leader finally can't bear it and asked,"WHY? WHY SO PAINFULLY? WHY ALL THIS MADNESS?"

the singaporean, still stabbing himself all over the body, says...


received this from email... do take note & clean the can drink before drinking it...

This is Serious!

This incident happened recently in North Texas .
A woman went boating one Sunday taking with her some cans of coke which she put into the refrigerator of the boat... On Monday she was taken to the hospital and placed in the Intensive Care Unit. She died on Wednesday.

The autopsy concluded she died of Leptospirosis. This was traced to the can of coke she drank from, not using a glass. Tests showed that the can was infected by dried rat urine and hence the disease Leptospirosis.

Rat urine contains toxic and deathly substances. It is highly recommended to thoroughly wash the upper part of all soda cans before drinking out of them. The cans are typically stocked in warehouses and transported straight to the shops without being cleaned.

A study at NYCU showed that the tops of all soda cans are more contaminated than public toilets (I.e.).. Full of germs and bacteria. So wash them with water before putting them to the mouth to avoid any kind of fatal accident.

How Smart is your right foot?

You have to try this please, it takes 2 seconds.. I could not believe this!!!
It is from an orthopaedic surgeon...............This will boggle your mind and you will keep you trying over and over again to see if you can outsmart your foot, but, you can't.

It's pre-programmed in your brain!

1. Without anyone watching you (they will think you are GOOFY) and while sitting at your desk in front of your computer, lift your right foot off the floor and make clockwise circles.

2.. Now, while doing this, draw the number '6' in the air with your right hand. Your foot will change direction.

I told you so!!! And there's nothing you can do about it! You and I both know how stupid it is, but before the day is done you are going to try it again, if you've not already done so.

Doctor aren't supposed to laugh...

Doctor, I have a problem to consult you, but you aren't supposed to laugh...

Of course I won't laugh, said the lady doctor, I'm a professional. In over twenty years I've never laughed at a patient.

Okay, then, said Fred, and he proceeded to drop his trousers, revealing the tiniest 'man thingy' she had ever seen - it was smaller than the a AAA battery.

Unable to control herself, the doctor started giggling, then fell to the floor laughing.

Five minutes later she was able to struggle to her feet and regain her composure.

I am so sorry, she said. I don't know what came over me. On my honor as a doctor and a lady, I promise it won't happen again. Now, tell me, what seems to be the problem?

It's SWOLLEN, Fred replied.

The doctor WHAT! OMG OMG OMG . Laughing sooo hard, she nearly die!

This story happened in UK:

Ahmed and Hamid are both beggars at several motorway services in England.

Poor Hamid typically only collects £2 to £3 a day, whereas Ahmed brings home a suitcase full of £10 notes every day.

Hamid consults Ahmed. Ahmed says, "Look at your sign. It says, "I have no work, a wife and six kids to support."

Britons who see that do not feel as if they have accomplished anything by giving you money. You will still have no job and a large family. Now look at my sign."

So Hamid looks up and Ahmed's sign reads: "I only need another £10 to move back to Pakistan"

Which bird are u?

Date of birth


21 Jan - 17 Feb

A cool exterior disguises a fiery temper and is very opinionated - although those opinions are not always shared by everyone. They are proud and particularly home-loving , although have a tendency to be quarrelsome.

18 Feb - 17 March

Goldfinch people are colorful characters who are sensitive and always alert. They are gregarious by nature and love being in groups of people , which offers them security. They need to find an outlet for their imaginative abilities or they are sometimes be in danger of becoming nervous and irritable.

18 March - 14 April

A powerful individual which displays courage and a sometimes ruthless determination. Avoids problematical obstacles with skill , although must be fully targeted so as not to waste energy in fruitless chases for the impossible.

15 April - 12 May

Has a tendency to have a mind that wanders , but when in search of a particular goal , will travel great lengths to achieve it. Occasionally , the albatross may become caught up in things it shouldn't when not seeing clearly enough.

13 May - 9 June

Peace-loving by nature , doves will bill and coo about things close to their heart. They enjoy a fulfilling love-life and rarely fail to satisfy. They are also patient , adaptable and personable. Their lack of aggression sometimes makes them the victim of more predatory characters.

10 June- 7 July

A well-respected figure which has excellent visionary qualities. Eagles will truck no nonsense and will fix opponents with a powerful stare. They have the power to rise above the trivial aspects of humanity , and are highly tal e nted.

8 July- 4 August

More often heard before being seen , nightingales always have something to say for themselves. They are however very much in tune with their partners. Their unimpressive exterior hides a personality that is just waiting to burst out.

5 August - 1 Sept

Another flamboyant and colorful character that is always exciting to encounter. They rush around at great speed and have a close spiritual affinity with water. They have a sharp and perceptive head on them , but can make them impetuous enough to dive in where others would fear to go.

2 Sept - 29 Sept

The swan is a complex character. While appearing on the surface as a calm and relaxed individual , underneath they are working hard to keep up with the pace of modern life. If provoked their natural graceful demeanor can give way to a violent temper which puts them in a flap. They are definitely someone to have on your side.

30 Sept - 27 Oct

A tough , hard-working character with plenty of stamina. Has no problem drumming up support for their ideas , no matter how wacky they seem. With a lateral-thinking mind they are skilled at dissecting problems and seeing the wood for the trees. However , with their noisy and exuberant lifestyle , you might not want to have one as a neighbor.

28 Oct - 24 Nov

A sharp brain helps kestrel people hover from one subject to another without losing concentration. They focus on their life's goal with a single-minded focus , not flustered by what is going on around them. A confidence in their own ability helps them to soar to heights others may only dream of.

25 Nov - 23 Dec

Always impressive , raven people are a tower of strength. They are more intelligent than their peers and are adept problem-solvers. They enjoy challenges are stimulated by wild and exposed places.

24 Dec - 20 Jan

Heron people are deceptive. Although they may be solitary individuals for much of the time , they nevertheless have a need to settle in busy communities where they know everyone else. They may get bogged down as they wade the course of life , but have broad enough shoulders to cope with weighty issues. But their insecure nature often leads them to fish for compliments.

Test for Dementia

Take your eyes off the TV screen on the SWINE Flu news and answer these questions.

Did it make a difference for a few minutes?

Below are four (4) questions and a bonus question. You have to answer them instantly. You can't take your time, answer all of them immediately. Let's find out just how clever you really are.

First Question:
You are participating in a race.. You overtake the second place person.
What position are you in?

If you answered that you are first, then you are wrong! If you overtake the second place person, and you take their place, you are second!

To answer the second question, don't take as much time as you took for the first question.

Second Question:
If you are in a race, and you overtake the last person, then you are?

If you answered that you are second to last, then you are wrong again. Tell me, how can you overtake the LAST person?! You're not having a good time at this! Are you?

Very tricky maths! Note: This must be done in your head only. Do NOT use paper and pencil or a calculator. Try it.

Third Question:
Take 1000 and add 40 to it. Now add another 1000.. Now add 30. Add another 1000. Now add 20. Now add another 1000. now add 10. What is the total?

Did you get 5000? The correct answer is actually 4100. Don't believe it? Check with your calculator!

Today is definitely not your day. Maybe you will get the last question right?

Fourth Question:
Mary's father has five daughters: 1. Nana, 2. Nene, 3. Nini, 4. Nono.
What is the name of the fifth daughter?

Nunu? NO! Of course not. Her name is Mary. Read the question again!

Okay, now the bonus round. You can partially redeem yourself with this one!

Bonus Question
There is a mute person who wants to buy a toothbrush. By imitating the action of brushing one's teeth he successfully expresses himself to the shopkeeper and the purchase is done. Now if there is a blind man who wishes to buy a pair of sunglasses, how should he express himself?

He just has to open his mouth and ask. He's blind, not mute - so simple.
