Stupid Questions People Ask Travel Agents

These are so funny!
The following are actual stories provided by travel agents:
I had someone ask for an aisle seats so that his or her hair wouldn't get messed up by being near the window.
A client called in inquiring about a package to Hawaii.  After going over all the cost info, she asked, "Would it be cheaper to fly to California and then take the train to Hawaii?"
A man called, furious about a Florida package we did. I asked what was wrong with the vacation in Orlando. He said he was expecting an ocean-view room. I tried to explain that is not possible, since Orlando is in the middle of the state. He replied, "Don't lie to me. I looked on the map and Florida is a very thin state."
Another man called and asked if he could rent a car in Dallas. When I pulled up the reservation, I noticed he had a 1-hour lay over in Dallas.  When I asked him why he wanted to rent a car, he said, "I heard Dallas was a big airport, and I need a car to drive between the gates to save time."

Oscar the Cat Predicts Death

Totally weird

Oscar, a hospice cat at the Steere House Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Providence, R.I., walks past an activity room at the facility Monday, July 23, 2007. Oscar the cat seems to have an uncanny knack for predicting when nursing home patients are going to die, by curling up next to them during their final hours.

Talking Clock

I had one of these.....
Talking clock

While proudly showing off his new apartment to friends, a college student

led the way into the den.



"What is the big brass gong and hammer for?" one of his friends asked.



"That is the talking clock," the man replied.



"How's it work?" the friend asked.


"Watch," the man said and proceeded to give the gong an ear- shattering

pound with the hammer.


Suddenly, someone screamed from the other side of the wall, "Knock it off,

you idiot! It's two o'clock in the morning!"

Courtroom Blunders

Courtroom Hammer

Here are some mistakes made by stupid Lawyers out there asking questions that have no definitive answer - I’ve given you the pick of the crop to choose from you can see more from the link below - some will make you howl with laughter.


Lawyer
: “Doctor, before you performed the autopsy, did you check for a pulse?”
Witness: “No.”
Lawyer: “Did you check for blood pressure?”
Witness: “No.”
Lawyer: “Did you check for breathing?”
Witness: “No.”
Lawyer: “So, then it is possible that the patient was alive when you began the autopsy?”
Witness: “No.”
Lawyer: “How can you be so sure, Doctor?”
Witness: “Because his brain was sitting on my desk in a jar.”
Lawyer: “But could the patient have still been alive nevertheless?”
Witness: “Yes, it is possible that he could have been alive and practicing law somewhere.”

Lawyer: “And lastly, Gary, all your responses must be oral. Ok? What school do you go to?”
Witness: “Oral.”
Lawyer: “How old are you?”
Witness: “Oral.”

new spin on earth's magnetic field

Amazing


Toy inspires new spin on Earth's magnetic field

How can a spinning toy called a rattleback help us understand the Earth's magnetic field?
For those of us below a certain age, a rattleback is a toy that you can spin in one direction but not the other. If you try to make it spin in the "wrong" direction, it spontaneously rattles up and down, and then starts spinning in the other way.
It doesn't sound terribly complex, but mathematicians and physicists have been struggling for centuries trying to work out why rattlebacks behave like this.
Watch the video to see it all explained:
