8. One, he may have many Birthdays, but only one birth day!

9. Mother, or Mom, or whatever you call your maternal relative.

10. The answer is actually feathers. We need proof though! AND SO: - One pound of feathers is more than one pound of gold because the "pound" unit is different. The most commonly used system of weights in the US and Great Britain is the avoirdupois system, where 1 pound = 16 ounces. This is used for most solid objects, except for precious metals and gems; gold is weighed by a special system, called the troy system, where one troy pound = 12 troy ounces. Where one avoirdupois ounce is 28.35 grams, one troy ounce is about 31.10 grams. To convert from avoirdupois pounds to troy pounds, multiply the first by 1.2152 to get its equivalent in troy measurement. Therefore, one "pound" of feathers in troy weight is actually 1.2152 pounds (one avoirdupois pound), compared to one troy pound of gold. And the feathers win.

11. They will both be the same distance from Paris when they meet!! *See note below!

12. 9 minutes. It only takes 9 cuts to get 10 equal sections.


13. $1,898.00 is one more silver dollar than $1,897.00

14. Queue

15. It has to be Johnny. He's the third child!

16. 4. If you don't agree, try it yourself!

17. It's her job, she's a Justice of the Peace or a Minister.

18. House numbers.

19. You have 2 apples. There are 3 left on the counter, but you have 2.

20. The match of course!

Before the flight, the passengers get together and elect a pilot.

You can't board the plane unless you have the exact change (99sen).

Before you take off, the stewardess tells you to fasten your Zip.

The Captain asks all the passengers to chip in a little for gas.

When they pull the steps away, the plane starts rocking.

The Captain yells at the ground crew to get the cows off the runway.

You ask the Captain how often their planes crash and he says, "Just once."

You see a man with a gun, but he's demanding to be let off the plane.

All the planes have both a bathroom and a chapel.

Husband & Wife - Why divorce?
In a divorce court a woman requested the judge: "Your honor, I want to
divorce my husband." "But why ?" asked the judge. She replied, "Because he
is not faithful to me." The judge asked, "How do you know ?" She replied,
"My lord, not a single child resembles him."


Husband & Wife - Love Your Enemy

die I want you to marry Samy." "Samy! But he is your enemy !" "Yes, I know
that ! I've suffered all these years so let him suffer now."

At the cocktail party, one woman said to another, "Aren't you wearing your
wedding ring on the wrong finger? " The other replied, "Yes I am, I married
the wrong man."


Husband & Wife - Why?
" Dad, I was away for a week. Yesterday I sent a fax to my wife I'd be home
that night, and when I got into my room I found my wife in another man's
arms. " Why, Dad ? Tell me why!" Dad kept silent for a few minutes, then
coolly said, "Maybe, Son, she didn't get the fax."


Husband & Wife - Same Service
A husband visited a marriage counselor and said, "When we were first
married, I would come home from the office, my wife would bring my slippers
and our cute little dog would run around barking. Now after ten years it's
all different, I come home, the dog brings the slippers and my wife runs
around barking." "Why complain?" said the counselor. "You're still getting
the same service!"

Husband & Wife - No Answer Back
A man was telling his friends, "When my wife is infuriated, she starts
shouting at me, my children and even at our dogs and nobody dares answer

none of them dares to answer back.


Husband & Wife - Come Home Late
A woman was complaining to the neighbour that her husband always came home
late, no matter how she tried to stop him. "Take my advice," said the
neighbour, "and do what I did. Once my husband came home at three o'clock in

"You see, his name is Bill."
