General, "Fun Stuff"

Some maybe not such "Fun Stuff" ("Sad, but true")


One of my favorite "Dilbert's"

Why I always want my mom chairing my tennis matches. . .

I dig the blues, daddio. . .


"The day the Bricks & Boards aliens invaded earth". . .


I'm not a big java "applet" fan for web pages, but this is kinda fun and oh-so pretty!

Click on the window below and see what happens. Drag and click too...


Another applet, one that brings me back to my youth and the original "Pong" video game. Try it out..


I've always had a thing for funky clocks, especially of the electronic variety (one of my college class projects was to design and build a (then) state-of-the-art LED clock. My mom still has it). So, believe it or not, the ChronoLisa below is a java-based version of a real product.

      Now, can you tell what time it is?

And last, one of my favorite jokes...

It was getting a little crowded in Heaven, so God decided to change the admittance policy. The new law was that, in order to get into Heaven, you had to have a really bad day the day you died. The policy would go into effect at noon the following day.

So the next day at 12:01 the first person came to the gates of Heaven. The angel at the gate, remembering about the new law, promptly asked the man, "Before I can let you in, I need you to tell me about the day you died."

"No problem," said the man. "Well, for some time now, I've thought my wife was having an affair. I believed that each day on her lunch hour, she'd bring her lover home to our 25th floor apartment and, uh, get intimate with him. So today I was going to come home too and catch them. Well, I got there and busted in and immediately began searching for this guy. My wife was half naked and yelling at me as I searched the entire apartment. But, damn it, I couldn't find him! Just as I was about to give up, I happened to glance out onto the balcony and noticed that there was a man hanging off the edge by his fingertips! The nerve of that guy to think he could hide from me!"

"Well, I ran out there and promptly stomped on his fingers until he fell to the ground. But, wouldn't you know it, he landed in some bushes that broke his fall, and he didn't die. In rage I went back inside to get the first thing I could get my hands on to throw at him. And oddly enough, the first thing I could grab was the refrigerator. I unplugged it, pushed it out onto the balcony and heaved it over the side. It plummeted 25 stories and crushed him! The excitement of the moment was so great that right after that I had a heart attack and died almost instantly."

The angel sat back and thought for a moment. Technically, the guy DID have a bad day, and it WAS a crime of passion, so he announced, "Ok, sir, Welcome to the Kingdom of Heaven," and let him in. A few seconds later another guy came. Here's the rule. Before I can let you in, I need to hear about the day you died.

"Sure thing.", the man replied. "But you're not gonna believe this. I was out on the balcony of my 26th floor apartment doing my daily exercises when I got a little carried away and accidentally fell over the side! Luckily however, I was able to catch myself by my fingertips on the balcony directly beneath mine. When all of the sudden this crazy man comes running out of his apartment and starts cussing and stomping on my fingers! Well, of course I fall, I hit some trees and bushes on the way down which broke my fall so I didn't die right away. As I'm lying there face up on the ground, unable to move in excruciating pain, I see the man push his refrigerator, of all things, over the ledge and it falls directly on top of me and kills me!" The angel is quietly laughing to himself as the man finishes his story. "I could get used to this new policy.", he thinks to himself. "Very well," the angel announces. "Welcome to the Kingdom of Heaven.", and he lets the man enter. A few seconds later a third man in line comes up to the gate.

"Tell me about the day you died.", says the angel.

"Ok. Picture this.", says the man. "I'm naked inside a refrigerator..."
