Joke: Naughty questions asked by teacher

November 9th, 2008

A first-grade teacher was having trouble with one of her students.

Teacher: What is your problem?

Bog: I’m too smart for the first-grade. My sister is in third-grade and I’m smarter then she is. I think I should in the third-grade too.

The teacher took the boy to the Principal office.while the boy waiting in the outer office, the teacher explained to the principal what the situation was.

The principal told her that he would give the boy a test and if he failed to answer any of his questions he was to go back to the first-grade and behave.

She agreed.

The boy was brought in and the condition were explained to him and he agreed to take the test.

Principal:What is 3×3?
Boy:9

Principal:What is 6×6?
Boy:36

And so it went with every question the principal thought a third-grade should know.”I think the boy can go to the third-grade”, said the principal.

The teacher said she had some of her own questions to ask.

The Principal and the boy agreed.

Teacher:What is that a cow has four and I have only two?
Boy: (after a moment) Legs.

Teacher:What is in your pants that you have but I do not have?
Boy:Pockets.

Teacher: What starts with a C and ends with a T, is hairy, oval, delicious and contains then whitish liquid?
Boy: Coconut.

Books: Author Michael Crichton dies, 66

November 5th, 2008

Best-selling author Michael Crichton has died in Los Angeles aged 66 after a “courageous and private battle against cancer”, his family has said.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/7711763.stm

Boo! Michael Crichton got me hooked on his books with “The Andromeda Strain” and since then I’ve worked through “The Terminal Man”, “The Great Train Robbery”, “Congo”, “Sphere”, “Jurassic Park” (before and after the movies), “Eaters of the Dead” , “Rising Sun”, “Disclosure”, “The Lost World”, “Airframe” (which I re-read on a plane 😉 ), “Timeline” (very disappointed in the movie – the book had so much potential), “Prey”, “State of Fear” and most recently “Next” and I’ll probably read his next novel which is due out in May (posthumously).

I loved quite a few of his movies, but just couldn’t get myself into ER.

Goodbye to another great author!

Work: Still working flat out!

November 5th, 2008

Sorry I haven’t been blogging much – the work hours at my new startup are only meant to be 9.30 to 6pm, but once you take into account 30 minute commutes and the fact we never finish at 6pm (7pm tonight) means I haven’t got much time to blog… But it’s certainly an exciting role and we’re still recruiting! So if you are a Flash Game Developer looking for a Permanent role in London (W1W/Great Portland Street area) or you are a Teacher specialising in Maths looking for an exciting and challenging role building an interactive learning system – get in touch via [email address removed] before the end of November!

I must admit to get this role I turned down an interview at MTV for Paramount Pictures and, within the last 48 hours, I have had to say “no” to the BBC three times (twice for a permanent role and once as a contractor!).

Anyway, I’m going to spend 20 minutes just writing some blog posts so I can set them to publish in the future… Keep visiting and live long and prosper!
