And We thought Equations are Mathematical ..

Human = eat + sleep + work + enjoy
Donkey = eat + sleep
Human = Donkey + work + enjoy
If, Human – enjoy = Donkey + work
In other words,
Human that don’t know enjoy = Donkey that work

************ ********* ********* ********* ********* ******
Men = eat + sleep + earn money
Donkeys = eat + sleep
Therefore, Men = Donkeys + earn money
If Men – earn money = Donkeys
In other words,
Men that don’t earn money = Donkeys

************ ********* ********* ********* ********* ******
Women = eat + sleep + spend
Donkeys = eat + sleep
Therefore, Women = Donkeys + spend
If, Women – spend = Donkeys
In other words,
Women that don’t spend = Donkeys

************ ********* ********* ********* ********* ******
To Conclude:
* Men earn money not to let women become Donkeys!
* Women spend not to let men become Donkeys!
* Man + Woman = 2 Donkeys!
** And the Donkeys lived happily ever after!

Enjoy your retirement and collect your pension.

Then when you start work, you get a gold watch on your first day.

You work 40 years until you’re too young to work.

You get ready for high school: drink alcohol, party, and you’regenerally promiscuous.

Then you go to primary school, you become a kid, you play, and you have no responsibilities.

Then you become a baby, and then…

You spend your last 9 months floating peacefully in luxury, in spa-like conditions – central heating, room service on tap…

Linda Wolfe – Most Married Woman


American grandmother Linda Wolfe has become “the most married woman in the world” after walking down the aisle 23 times, and is now “on the lookout for number 24”.

Mrs Wolfe, 68, is included in the Guinness Book of World Records for the dubious honour of being wed more times than anyone else alive. She has said that she is “addicted to the romance” of getting married.

Born Linda Lou Taylor, the American first married in 1957 aged 16, to a 31-year-old called George Scott. The union lasted for seven years, the longest and happiest of any of her marriages. Since then things have tended to go downhill. Over the subsequent decades she married a one-eyed convict, a preacher, barmen, plumbers and musicians.

Two turned out to be homosexual, two were homeless and one beat her. Another put a padlock on her fridge.
One marriage lasted just 36 hours because “the love wasn’t there”. But Linda, from Indiana, once married the same man, Jack Gourley, three times. She has had seven children by her different husbands and been a stepmother to many more.

Her last marriage, a decade ago, was a publicity stunt. It was to Glynn Wolfe, who in taking Linda as his bride meant he was the world’s most married man, at 29 times. He died a year later aged 88. Consequently she said that she was “on the lookout for number 24”.

She told The Sun: “It’s been years since I walked down the aisle. I miss it.” The serial bride, who now lives in a retirement home, said she had never cheated on a husband. She said if she had her life over again she would “never, ever” marry so many men.

Longest Ear Hair Record Holder


A man in northern India has been recognized by Guinness World Records as having the world’s longest ear hair.

The tufts coming out of the man’s ears measured more than 5 inches when he set the record in 2003. The hair has now grown to nearly 10 inches. In fact, the hair is so long he has to shampoo and comb it. He was granted a certificate from Guinness to certify him as the record-holder.

However, he complained that too many people consider his feat foolish and said the Indian government isn’t treating him with the respect he deserves as a world record-holder.
