    A man stuck on a deserted island stumbles onto a lamp. As he is rubbing the dirt off of
    it a genie flies out of it and says "I will grant you three wishes, but first I must know your
    marital status." The man says he is divorced. The genie says then his ex-wife will get
    twice as much of what ever he wishes. The man says " Ok. For my first wish I want a
    billion dollars." The genie gives the man a billion dollars and his ex-wife 2 billion dollars.
    The man then says " For my next wish, I would like my own private jet." The genie gives
    him a private jet, and his ex-wife two private jets. "And for my last wish I would like you
    to beat me half to death." The man says. The genie then beats him half to death and his
    wife is dead.

    Dunno about the text, but illusions are cool: (click for larger)
    The pictures attached are used to test the level of stress a person can handle.
    The slower the pictures move, the better it is said is your ability of handling stress.
    Alleged criminals that were tested see them spinning around madly; however, senior citizens and kids see them standing still.
    None of these images are animated-they are perfectly static.
    One teacher who used this test said, "I felt like they were all moving... but slowly. Kinda like, they were breathing."

    Donald Rumsfeld is giving the president his daily briefing. He concludes
    by saying: "Yesterday, 3 Brazilian soldiers were killed in an accident"
    "OH DEAR GOD NO!!!" George W. Bush exclaims. "That's terrible!!" His
    staff sits stunned at this display of emotion, nervously watching as the
    president sits, head in hands. Finally, the President, devastated, looks
    up and asks.......... "How many is a Brazillion??!"
    --thanks Bash!
