Here is a good one I found recently by Larry Cottrill:


"Imagine trying to design a machine gun that has to be muzzle loaded! And yet, that's exactly what most pulsejet designs are forced to do - even highly successful ones, like the Dynajet."

"You'll find that there are now only two states of matter: that which is useful for pulse jets, and that which is not!"

Heres one for my next "Brilliant idea"

Larry Cottrill:

I read this last night on an Internet forum ... no origin was given.

Religion's got nothing to do with it..
I'll take science over religion any day.
Science flies rockets to the moon.
Religion flies airplanes into buildings

One mans call to his countrymen to pursue liberty and oppose oppression.
(considerable irony in that he owned slaves himself)

I wonder what call to action would move my countrymen in this day and age?

For #1, I would say that unfortunatly, it is too often a 24/7 state of mind for alot of our scociety.

and for #2, True ... As a universal law says ... "Everyting begins by us" ... But again, here too scociety became champion putting responsabilities on others.

Here are my favorites,

- Pointing someone? ... Look at your hand, for tree of your own fingers pointing YOU ...

- Talking about someone? ... You're actually talking about your self ... (Good or bad).

- Fear in others? ... Of what you are or can ...

- Accusing? ... Of something you probably do or did ...

- Evolved want to be? ... Not before responsable you become ...

- Solutions you're seeking? ... In others they are not ...

- Going through "Hell" ... Seek whom you were "Hell" for ...

- Who conquer others is powerful ... Who conquer himself ... Is MIGHTY …

Good reflexion ... :wink:
