PSYCHOLOGY VS LAW

September 23, 2014 at 3:48 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

A guy is looking for a place to sit in a crowded university library. He asked a girl, “Do you mind if I sit beside you?”

The girl replied in a loud voice, “I DON’T WANT TO SPEND THE NIGHT WITH YOU!”

All the students in the library started staring at the guy. He was truly embarrassed and moved to another table.

After a couple of minutes, the girl walked quietly to the guy’s table and said with a laugh, “I study psychology, and I know what a man is thinking. I guess you felt embarrassed, right?”

The guy then responded in a loud voice, “$500 FOR ONE NIGHT? . . . THAT’S TOO MUCH!”

All the people in the library looked at the girl in shock.

The guy whispered to her, “I study law, and I know how to make people pay for their stupidity.”

THE NEWS

Odd news from around the world

Did Portugal discover Australia in 1520?: “Explorer and documentary maker Ben Cropp has set off on a six week mission to find a 500-year-old cannon which could prove for the first time Portuguese sailors were the first to land in Australia in the early 1520s. Mr Cropp, 78, who has more than six decades of diving experience and has discovered over 100 shipwrecks, is searching off the coast of Cooktown in far North Queensland. Mr Cropp says maps dated from the 1520s show a large sixth continent in the same position as present-day Australia, called ‘Java-la-Grande’ in many similar charts and navigational aids. The film maker and explorer told Daily Mail Australia from out at sea: ‘Three Portuguese ships and a Spanish vessel were lost near Cape York in the 1520s before the Dutch arrived. ‘I have clues as to where the wrecks might be and we are looking for a cannon which will date it. ‘Most historians agree the Portuguese were here first but we have to prove it.’ The team are spending hours each day snokrelling and looking for clues. ‘There was an early chart made in 1522, not released until 1542 and it clearly shows the Cooktown area and shows reefs off the coast.

Coffee that tastes like BEER?: “Starbucks coffee is known for offering seasonal drinks like iced Frappuccino in the summer and Pumpkin Spice lattes in the fall but for the first time ever Starbucks patrons will be able to warm up with a beer flavored coffee. You read correctly, Starbuck’s new Dark Barrel Latte is topped with whipped cream and a dark caramel sauce and flavored coffee syrup that is designed to taste like dark Irish beers such as Guinness. The new beer flavored coffee drink is in limited Starbucks locations as the franchise is still testing the beverage in order to determine its popularity. So far, some who’ve tasted the beverage had a hard time believing it’s not beer and love the taste. Others dislike the new flavor and warn people against ordering the drink.”

The white horses of the Camargue: “A herd of white Camargue horses galloping through a calm delta at sunset made for some stunning photos from Barcelona-based photographer Xavier Oretgas Ojuel. The Spanish man travelled hundreds of miles to capture this magical moment of the rare animals racing wildly against the setting sun. Rushing along the remote landscape, the surf is kicked up and the animals’ movements blurred, as they are permitted to run free outside from their ranches along the Rhone River, near Arles, France. The photographs, taken at sunset, capture the horses between the Mediterranean Sea and the two arms of the Rhone River delta. The herd is carefree and playful, kicking up water as they splash in the surf ‘In these three years, I have seen many horses – usually they can run for ten minutes until the leader decides to quit,’ Xavier said. ‘I love seeing horses like this – running free in the wild. They are one of my favourite animals, displaying a combination of power, beauty and water in a great place with magnificent light.'”

Mock Spitfires with Japanese motors!: “It is almost 75 years since they enjoyed their finest hour in the Battle of Britain. And now, an Oxfordshire flying club has marked the momentous occasion by creating a classic Spitfire, albeit in a slightly smaller form than the World War Two version. Led by flying instructor Paul Fowler, the club hope to build a new squadron of Spitfires in time to mark the 75th anniversary of the campaign which helped Britain defeat Hitler’s Luftwaffe. The first Spitfire – a Supermarine Mk 26B, a 90 per cent scale replica based on the original Supermarine Spitfire design has been created by Enstone Flying Club. Twenty volunteers – ranging from a BT engineer to a BA pilot – helped construct the first Spitfire”

New Zealand to vote on ditching British flag from country’s banner: “New Zealand may vote next year on changing its flag, scrubbing out the red, white and blue of the Union Flag to break its ties with Britain. The country’s newly re-elected prime minister, John Key, made the revelation today as the country looks to assert an identity independent of its former colonial overlord. Key’s centre-right government was returned for a third three year term on Saturday in a resounding win, promising to continue steady economic management and controls on spending, and possible tax cuts in three years. Asked about his promise of a referendum on a change of flag, Key said he wanted it to be the subject of a referendum next year, including finding an alternative and then putting that up against the current flag. Key has previously said he wants a flag uniquely New Zealand in character that would be recognisable around the world. The current flag was adopted at the start of the 20th century and features the British Union Flag in the top-left corner with the four red stars of the Southern Cross on a blue background. It is often confused with the similar looking Australian flag. A survey in March showed 52 percent of respondents did not see any need to change the flag.”
