Thwarted bombings  
1. Thank goodness for the Internet - we can still communicate with each other across international borders despite this latest amplification of fear. Hi, how is everyone in Finland, Iraq, Greece, Iran, the UK, The Netherlands, Colombia, etc.?

2. Share something humorous today, here or in your own LJ? I'm a little overwhelmed by my reaction to what we're learning about the would've been bombed flights to New York, California and my own beloved state Washington, D.C.

Here's my contribution, that I got from my friend Jake:

Knock, knock.

I'm a little overwhelmed myself with my daughter on her way to Australia. Thi sis NOT the news I needed to hear. Yeah, it was European flights...but still. Didn't get to bed until 4 AM, no idea how long I lay there waiting for sleep.

Looking for humor myself today.

Ok, I have one really bad joke.
What do you call a midget clairvoiant who's just escaped from prison?
A small medium at large.

No Worries, Mate!
The list of statistics is interesting, and will either put your mind at rest, or give you a whole bunch of other weird stuff to stress about.

I have to admit, my first thought was "Awesome! Cheap plane tickets!"

A 70-year-old Texas Rancher got his hand caught in a gate while working cattle. He wrapped the hand in his bandana and drove his pickup to the doctor. While suturing the laceration, the doctor asked the old man about George W. Bush being in the White House.

The old Texan said, "Well, ya know, Bush is a 'Post Turtle.'"

Not knowing what the old man meant, the doctor asked what a Post Turtle was.

The old man looked at him and drawled, "When you're driving down a country road and you come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that's a Post Turtle."

The old man saw a puzzled look on the doctor's face, so he continued to explain:

"You know he didn't get there by himself, he doesn't belong there, he can't get anything done while he's up there, and you just want to help the poor dumb bastard get down."

Re: No Worries, Mate!
Most of it was general mommy worry. This is her first big trip. At least in my head it is. She's gone to Arizona and Minnesota on her own before but this is different. Slept better last night though. I realised that no one in their right OR wrong mind will want to bring down the wrath of the Aussis on themselves. They might not have a large military, but their boys enjoy fighting.

i heartily recommend reading as much of a softer world as possible.

A pessimist's blood type is always b-negative.

A hangover is the wrath of grapes.

Nevermind, I can't post it cause I have no where to host it.
