Animal Challenge

Two neighbors had been fighting each other for nigh on four decades. Bob buys a Great Dane and teaches it to use the bathroom in Bill's yard. For one whole year Bill ignores the dog.

So Bob then buys a cow and teaches it to use the bathroom in Bill's yard. After about a year and a half of Bob's cow crapping in Bill's yard; being ignored all the while, a semi pulls up in front of Bill's house.

Bob runs over and demands to know what's in the 18-wheeler.

Bill replies solemnly.

A father walks into a restaurant with his young son. He gives the young boy 3 nickels to play with to keep him occupied.

Suddenly, the boy starts choking, going blue in the face. The father realizes the boy has swallowed the nickels and starts slapping him on the back. The boy coughs up 2 of the nickels, but keeps choking. Looking at his son, the father is panicking, shouting for help.

A well-dressed, attractive, and serious looking woman in a blue business suit is sitting at the coffee bar reading a newspaper and sipping a cup of coffee. At the sound of the commotion, she looks up, puts her coffee cup down, neatly folds the newspaper and places it on it on the counter, gets up from her seat and makes her way, unhurried, across the restaurant.

Reaching the boy, the woman carefully drops his pants; takes hold of the boy's testicles and starts to squeeze and twist, gently at first and then ever so...

All German Universities will be free of charge as of this year. The last German region to remove tuition fees, Lower Saxony, has now done so in what promises to be a historic moment for German (and European) education. A different, more efficient education.

"Education in most of Europe is already very different from what it is in the US, Canada, or Australia. In several countries from the Old Continent (most notably Scandinavian countries - Sweden, Norway and Denmark) education has been free for several years, and other countries are starting to follow suite.

"Tuition fees are socially unjust," said Dorothee Stapelfeldt, senator for science in Hamburg, which scrapped charges in 2012. "They particularly discourage young people who do not have a traditional academic family background from taking up studies. It is a core task of politics to ensure that young women and men can study with a high quality standard free of charge in Germany."

Indeed, the general trend seems to be to...

Omusubi, or rice ball, a comfort food
By Audrey Wilson

The people of the Big Island are resilient. We survived tsunamis, our two largest, one in 1946 and the other in 1960. We get shaken by earthquakes occasionally, some damaging, some not.

We pick up the Hawaii Tribune-Herald these days, and on the front page of the paper are maps or descriptions of where the June 27th lava flow could be heading and the timeline. In the Sunday, Sept. 14, paper the headline asked whether Mauna Loa will erupt.

After all, we do live on an active volcano and in the middle of the Ring of Fire, so it should not be a huge surprise to anyone living here that we have these natural disasters to face. It just seems like a lot for the people of the Big...

Two Arabs boarded a flight out of New York. One sat in the window seat and the other sat in the middle. Just before take off, An American
got on and took the aisle seat.

After takeoff, The American kicked his shoes off, wiggled his toes and was settling in when the Arab in the window seat said, "I think I'll get up and get a beer."
"No problem," said the American, "I'll get it for you."

While he was gone, One of the Arabs picked up the American's shoe and spat in it. When he returned with the beer, the other Arab said,
"that looks good, I think I'll have one too."

Again, the American obligingly went to get it and, while he was gone, the other Arab picked up the other shoe and spat in it. When the
American returned to his seat, they all sat back and enjoyed the flight.

As the plane was landing, the American slipped his feet into his shoes and knew immediately what had happened.

He looked at the two Arabs and asked, "why does it have to be this way? How long must this go on, this...
