Sometimes, women have too much to say.
 
A Highway Patrolman pulls over a car for speeding. The officer informs the male driver that his speed has been checked at 140kph in a 100kph zone.

The driver replies, "Christ officer. I had it on Cruise Control at 100. Perhaps your radar needs calibrating?" Not looking up from her knitting, his wife who was a passenger in the front of the vehicle says,"Now don't be silly dear. You know this car doesn't have Cruise Control." As the officer writes out the ticket, the driver looks over at his wife and growls,"Can't you keep your bloody mouth shut for once.?"

The wife looks back at him and says, "You should be thankful that your Radar Detector went off when it did." As the officer writes up the next ticket for the 'Illegal radar Detector', the driver looks at his wife and through clenched teeth says, "Damn it woman. I've just told you to keep your bloody mouth shut?"

The officer frowns and then says, "Sir. I also noticed that you weren't wearing your seat belt when I pulled you over? That's another automatic fine." The driver replied," Yeah well you see ****stable, I had it on, but took it off as you were walking up to my car so as I could get my license out of my wallet which was in my back pocket." The wife pipes up and says, "Now dear. You know very well that you didn't have your seat belt on. You never wear a seat belt when your driving." As the officer is writing out the third ticket, the driver turns to his wife and yells," For once and for all, shut your bloody mouth or I'll shut it for you."

The officer then looks at the women and asks, "Does your husband always talk to you like that Ma'am? The wife replies, "No. Only when he's been drinking heavily."

Read this some time back. Found this version on the Aprilla Forum.

You are riding the average $250,000 Honda MotoGP bike. Over a mile up theroad, a Top Fuel dragster is staged and ready to launch down a quarter milestrip as you pass. You have the advantage of a flying start. You run theRC211V hard up through the gears and blast across the starting line and pastthe dragster at an honest 200 mph (293 ft/sec). The 'tree' goes green forboth of you at that moment. The dragster launches and starts after you. Youkeep your wrist cranked hard, but you hear an incredibly brutal whine thatsears your eardrums and within 3 seconds the dragster catches and passesyou. He beats you to the finish line, a quarter mile away from where youjust passed him. Think about it, from a standing start, the dragster had spotted you 200 mphand not only caught, but nearly blasted you off the road when he passed youwithin a mere 1320 foot long race course.

Never really thought about that.........................Faaaaaaarrrrkk !%/
Then again the bike does turn and make it back to the pits under its own power!! :cool:

Our workplace organised a motivational talk by Michael Milton, the menís disabled speed skier world record holder. He is also the fastest Australian Ė disabled or not, on skiís.

His record is 213.65kl/hr. He was telling us that the timing trap is set between two red lines, 100m apart. He says at that speed it took him only 1.7 seconds to travel the 100m. And this was on one leg :eek:

They really are the most brutal form of motorsport.
When you see them live it is an absolute smashing of the senses.
I had the privilege to stand behind the start line for the funny cars (which are slow compared to top fuelers) at the Perth Motorplex. As they roll past the nitro burns your eyes, the cackle of headers busts your ears and they do the burnout and smoke burns your nose. When they launch off the start it's like a punch in the chest as they disappear down the qtr. Awesome!

im not into drag racing as much as other motor sports ok I will be honest it bores me to tears but I truly appreciate the engineering that goes into the cars to make them go .
one of my sponsors owns his own engine shop and does a lot of machining for the drag guys so I have gotten to see what goes into some of the engines and it's mind blowing how much money goes into some of the engines .
not my cup of tea but I suspect speedway and dirt circuit racing is not everyone else's cup of tea either .

cheers dean

There's all sorts of motor sports and all sorts of preferences...I've just become strangely interested in land speed racing....I'll never get to Bonneville but HOTROD magazine feeds me lots of good stuff. The technology in that stuff is up there with top fuel. Then there's pikes peak ! Daytona ... Fink ... man ..machines are the word !

So true too !
 
Why aren't there more ads out there that are a true & honest representation of the vehicles fine qualities.
And testimonials how great was that ?

The Great Race
 
Well the mountain had a bit of everything today-It sure wasn't short on drama today.
Some almost unbelievable driving, topped off but a FORD coming from stone motherless last to win on the last lap :eek:I kinda see the irony of Ford winning in the last couple of years-It would be fantastic for them to do it again next year, particularly if Ambrose wins it for DJR/Penske Racing !!
If I won it in a Ford (fat Chance of that......nargh-just Fat !!:eek:) I'd probably make a bigger dill of myself during the winners interview by saying FORD--WTF ??!
All in all a good result and a race filled to the brim with drama & excitment. :D

A young Catholic girl went to confession and said to the priest, "I'm pregnant."

He asked, "How did this happen, my child?"

She said, "I think it must have been the second coming."

The priest, shocked by this reply, asked, "What makes you think this has anything to do with the Second Coming?"

She replied, "Because I swallowed the first one!!"



:LOL:

For those who appreciate Dark Humour​!

Oscar wanted to get a new bathroom door but his girlfriend was dead against it.

Oscar clearly misunderstood when his girlfriend told him that on
Valentine's Day he had to take her out.

If he gets off this charge it will be the closest shave anyone has had
with only 2 blades.

His lawyer's got a hard job ahead of him. Realistically, it looks like
Pistorius hasn't got a leg to stand on.

Oscar Pistorius is pleading not guilty due to temporary diminished
responsibility. He claims he was legless at the time of the incident.

Whatever happens in court, he still has a career. The IOC say he's a
front runner at the next Olympics for pistol shooting.

Police reconstruction indicates that Pistorius lost it when, for
his Valentine's Day gift, his girlfriend gave him a pair of socks.

New Valentine's Day card: "Roses are red, violets are glorious. Never
creep up on Oscar Pistorius."

Looks like he has an expensive lawyer. I hope he can foot the bill.

New evidence has been found outside the Pistorius home that completely
acquits him of his girlfriend's murder Ö footprints !

She didn't notice Oscar stalking her.. It was the silence of the limbs.

And finally,

Anyone making jokes about Oscar Pistorius is just prosthetic!
