Limerick On Way To Advance  


By Chris J. Strolin    04 Aug 2010     #3587


There is only one way to advance
When it comes to the world of romance:
You can’t be afraid
Of past errors you’ve made,
So be bold. Shoot the works! Take a chance!

Limerick On Life Being Topsy Turvy

Limerick On Life Being Topsy Turvy


By Art Bates  14 May 2008  #44477


If your life’s topsy-turvy, don’t fret.
If it’s higglety-pigglety, let
What’s inside you get out,
And then turn things about—
Bid good-bye to confusion: no sweat!

Limerick On Life Not Being Just Black And White

Limerick On Life Not Being Just Black And White


By J. E. Pettit  12 Apr 2007  #29271


Teach your children—each time that you might—
Things are seldom all wrong or all right;
It’s okay if you say
There are levels of gray,
And that life isn’t just black and white.

Limerick On Robotics


Limerick On Robotics  


By Roger Dunn  10 Jan 2008  #39745

I’m a robot; my life’s rather tame.
Isaac Asimov’s laws are to blame.
Though that rare software glitch
Can be fun, there’s a hitch:
When I’m fixed, I obey. What a shame!

I’m on Facebook by day and by night.
My followers like what I write.
I’ve got invites and friends.
I’ve got feeds to the trends.
But have I got a life? No, not quite.

A LIMERICK ON ME…..

A LIMERICK ON ME…..


HERE IS A LIMERICK ON ME written by a friend in May 2014


E n j o y…..


There is a guy Broca (a Surd),


Whose methods in verse are absurd;


And just as I feared,


He has a long beard,


Which he lubricates with creamy curd

Donald Trump Limericks

Donald Trump Limericks


There once was a brash billionaire


who couldn’t afford decent hair.


Vexed voters agreed:


“We’re a nation in need!”


But toupée the price, do we dare?


By Michael R. Burch


Oh crap, we elected Trump prez!


Now he’s Simon: we must do what he sez!


‘Cause if anyone thinks


And says his “plan” stinks,


He’ll wig out ‘neath that weird orange fez!


By Michael R. Burch


World leaders continue to stare


At the man with the ludicrous hair:


They find it bewild’rin’


That refugee children


Give Trump such a pants-wetting scare.


By Will T. Laughlin


There’s a boastful campaigner named Trump


who is doing quite well on the stump.


All his insults and gaffes


only get him more laughs.


Will he wind up a champ or a chump?


By Richard Stoll Armstrong

A Mathematical Limerick

A Mathematical Limerick


Image result for mathematical limerick

A dozen, a gross, plus a score


Plus three times the square root of four


Divided by seven


Plus five times eleven


Is nine squared (and not a bit more).

One Liners

One Liners


I LOVE ONE LINERS.Here are some of my favourite ones:

 
1. A day without sunshine is like night.

2. On the other hand, you have different fingers.

3. 42.7 percent of all statistics are made up on the spot.

4. 99 percent of lawyers give the rest a bad name.

5. Remember, half the people you know are below average.

6. He who laughs last; thinks slowest.

7. Depression is merely anger without enthusiasm.

8. The early bird may get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese in the trap.

9. Support bacteria. They’re the only culture most people have.

10. A clear conscience is usually the sign of a bad memory.

11. Change is inevitable, except from vending machines.

12. If you think nobody cares, try missing a couple of payments.

13. How many of you believe in psycho-kinesis? Raise my hand.

14. OK, so what’s the speed of dark?

15. When everything is coming your way, you’re in the wrong lane.

16. Hard work pays off in the future. Laziness pays off now.

17. How much deeper would the ocean be without sponges?

18. Eagles may soar, but weasels don’t get sucked into jet engines.

19. What happens if you get scared half to death, twice?

20. Why do psychics have to ask you your name?

21. Inside every older person is a younger person wondering, ‘What the heck happened?’

22. Just remember—if the world didn’t suck, we would all fall off.

23. Light travels faster than sound. That’s why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

24. Life isn’t like a box of chocolates. It’s more like a jar of jalapenos. What you do today, might burn your butt tomorrow.

SUTTON’S LAW

SUTTON’S LAW  New Laws, fascinate me. I have a collection of some really funny laws as well. This morning I read about the captioned law. My curiosity was aroused and a little search via Google, gave me some interesting information. Sutton’s law states that when diagnosing, one should first consider the obvious. It suggests that one should first conduct those tests which could confirm (or rule out) the most likely diagnosis. It is taught in medical schools to suggest to medical students that they might best order tests in that sequence which is most likely to result in a quick diagnosis, hence treatment, while minimizing unnecessary costs. It is also applied in pharmacology, when choosing a drug to treat a specific disease you want the drug to reach the disease.It is applicable to any process of diagnosis, e.g. debugging computer programs. Computer-aided diagnosis provides a statistical and quantitative approach. A more thorough analysis will consider the false positive rate of the test and the possibility that a less likely diagnosis might have more serious consequences. A competing principle is the idea of performing simple tests before more complex and expensive tests, moving from bedside tests to blood results and simple imaging such as ultrasound and then more complex such as MRI then specialty imaging. The law can also be applied in prioritizing tests when resources are limited, so a test for a treatable condition should be performed before an equally probable but less treatable condition.


The law is named after the bank robber Willie Sutton, who reputedly replied to a reporter’s inquiry as to why he robbed banks by saying “because that’s where the money is.” (In Sutton’s 1976 book Where the Money Was, Sutton denies having said this).


A similar idea is contained in the physician’s adage, “When you hear hoof- beats behind you, think horses, not zebras.”


I JUST READ A FUNNY TAKE ON THIS LAW IN A SUPPLEMENT OF TODAY’S ECONOMIC TIMES:


“If you think that you have a new idea, you are wrong. Someone else probably already had it. This idea isn’t original either. I stole it from someone else.”
