Oklahoma is way Ahead of the Times

The Golden Age Of  Wireless

Recently the New Orleans Times Picayune newspaper reported that a Cajun amateur archaeologist, having dug to a depth of 10 meters, found traces of copper wire dating back 100 years, and came to the conclusion that their ancestors already had a telephone network more than 100 years ago.

Not to be outdone by the Cajuns, in the weeks that followed Texas scientists dug to a depth of 20 meters. Shortly after, headlines in the Dallas Morning News read: “Texas archaeologists have found traces of 200-year old copper wire, and have concluded that their ancestors already had an advanced high-tech communications network 100 years earlier than the Cajuns.”

One week later, the Daily Oklahoman reported: “After digging as deep as 30 meters in wheat fields near Watonga, Bubba Williams, a self-taught archaeologist, reported that he found absolutely nothing. Bubba has therefore concluded that 300 years ago, Okies were already using wireless.”

reality

I have found over the years that there is no such thing as reality, it is only how we perceive it. Each of us may have a different view of it because of our different beliefs and experiences. Two individuals can be sitting side by side, looking at the same event and “see” two entirely different outcomes based on their individual perception

An Emergency Situation

An Emergency Situation

A man walks into a store followed by his 10-year-old son. The kid
is flipping a quarter into the air and catching it in his mouth. As
they continue on someone bumps into the boy at just the wrong moment and
the coin goes into his mouth and lodges in his throat. He immediately
starts choking, and the father starts to panic.


A well-dressed middle-aged and very-serious woman in a business suit is sitting at the coffee bar in the market reading her Wall Street Journal
and sipping on her latte. At the sound of the commotion she looks up,
puts her coffee down, carefully folds her newspaper and puts her purse
on it. Then she gets up from her seat and strolls toward the boy, who is
now turning blue.

When she arrives, the woman takes hold of the boy’s testicles and
squeezes gently at first, but then gets evermore firm. After a few
seconds the boy convulses violently and coughs up the coin, which the
woman deftly catches from the air. She then releases the boy, hands the
quarter to the father, and walks back to her seat in the coffee bar
without saying a word.

As soon as he is sure that his son is OK, the father rushes over to
the woman and starts thanking her saying, “I’ve never seen anybody do
anything like that before! It was fantastic. Are you a doctor?”

“Certainly not,” the woman replies. “I’m a divorce attorney.”

Florial Business and the Friars

The Friars of the Floral Business

Some Friars were behind on their belfry payments

, so they opened up a small florist shop to raise the funds. Since everyone liked to buy flowers from the men of God, the rival florist across town thought the competition was unfair.

He asked the good fathers to close down, but they would not. He went back and begged the Friars to close. They ignored him. He asked his mother to go and ask the Friars to get out of business. They ignored her, too.

So, the rival florist hired Hugh MacTaggart, the roughest and most vicious thug in town, to “persuade” them to close. Hugh beat up the Friars and trashed their store, saying he’d be back if they didn’t close shop.

Terrified, the Friars did so – thereby proving that . . .

Hugh, and only Hugh, can prevent florist Friars.

church and state

There has been much debate over the years about what the founding fathers meant about the separation of church and state. In recent times there has been much disinformation about how they actually believed, especially George Washington. In this short Ebook the author tries to explain how they actually felt.

The Armless Bell Ringer

The Armless Bellringers

I thought this was hilarious!

 

There was a monastery in France at the edge of a cliff overlooking a beautiful valley, and
because its bells could be heard over such a wide area, it developed a
reputation for attracting only the finest bellringers in the country.

There was always a bit of dread when a bellringer passed on or retired, and
one year, when they spread the word of their need for a new master,
there was a dearth of qualified candidates. They would have been good
enough for any other monastery, but not this one. Better to have silent
bells than anything less than the best.

As they were despairing at the quality of candidates, a man with no
arms paid a visit to apply for the position. The monks were amazed and
protested that this was no time for joking. But the man insisted, said
he was from a family of famous bellringers, and he would show them what
he could do. He drew back, lowered his head, and charged full speed at
the bell. The monks was horrified, but could not stop him. And the
sound — oh my, you should have been there! It was indeed a sound
worthy of that monastery. It rang thruout the valley, and people
everywhere stopped in their tracks and nodded to each other that at
last a worthy bellringer had been found.

But alas, it was not to be. For the impact so stunned the poor
armless man that he stumbled dizzily and fell over the cliff. The head
monk ran down the steps to where a crowd had gathered, and a policeman
spoke to him. “Do you know this man?” The monk sighed, “No, but his
face rings a bell.”

The search continued. One day not long after, another armless man
showed up and presented himself as the previous man’s brother. He was
there to uphold the family honor, and would show them what a good
bellringer could do. The monks protested, but too late — he also drew
back and charged full speed into the bell. And once again, the most
beautiful sound pealed out over the valley, such that even the birds
circled around to see what was happening. And once again, he was so
stunned that he too fell over the cliff in a daze.

Once again the head monk scrambled down the stairs to meet the crowd
and a policeman. Again he was asked if he knew the deceased. “No, but
he’s a dead ringer for his brother.”
