Happy April Fool’s Day… laughter heals:-)

Sunday, April 1st, 2007

I read a long article today on the benefits of laugh, with lots of sicentific data on how it may improve your health, etc.

But what caught my attention more was a research, made on 2 million people accross the whole planet, with the aim to assess around 40’000 jokes.

The results of two nations caught my eye – Belguim and Scotland.

Best joke in Belgium was acknowledged the following:

“Why ducks are web-footed? To extinguish fires with them. And why elephants have flat feet? To step over the ducks on fire.”

Hmm?… And in Scotland joke number one was:

“I want to die peacefully in my sleep in the train, like my grand-father did, and not screaming in horror, like his passengers.”

This one was a good one! I had to read the joke twice before I’ve got it… :-D

Happy April Fool’s Day to everyone! (Today is not a suitable day for anything serious, and with all my coughing and sneezing this weekend, what more is left to me than to keep my bed, to read, write and (occasionaly) draw a little;)

Roomba vs TV?

Sunday, April 1st, 2007

I saw a funny post about a robot which cleans your house and laughed a lot (found via antonia.del.bg).

But I got a little be annoyed that the author of the comic strip maybe thinks that watching TV is the thing which’ll make his life easier and more efficient. You save time… to be in front of the TV set? Hmm…

Here’s my version (redrawn quickly with Macromedia Fireworks):

My variant of the Roomba save-time feature

(Because I’m lucky, the author has published the picture under CC and I can make changes to it, by mentioning him as the original author:-)

And I have gave up television totally a few years ago. We do not have a TV at home, and do not plan to have any in the future.

You can gain so much free time by getting rid of it!

Time used for drawing for your own pleasure, for example:)))

PS This is not a joke:)

Update (2009/03/20): The original comic strip has a new address:-)
