A company, feeling it was time for a shakeup, hires a new CEO. This new boss is determined to rid the company of all slackers.
On a tour of the facilities, the CEO notices a guy leaning on a wall. The room is full of workers and he wants to let them know he means business!
The CEO walks up to the guy and asks, "And how
much money do you make a week?"
Undaunted, the young fellow looks at him and replies, "I make $300.00 a week. Why?"
The CEO then hands the guy $300 in cash and screams, "Here's a week's pay, now GET OUT and don't come back!"
Feeling pretty good about his first firing, the CEO looks around the room and asks "Does anyone want to tell me what that goof-off did here?"
With a sheepish grin, one of the other workers mutters, "Pizza delivery guy from Domino's."

Elliðaey is the third largest island of the Westman Islands, located south of Iceland. The island is uninhabited, but has a large hunting lodge, constructed in 1953.
In 2000, the (then) Prime Minister of Iceland, Davið Oddsson, drew criticism when he tried to present the island to the singer Björk as a gift, to thank her for her contribution to raising the international profile of Iceland. His offer was withdrawn after much local protest. (Source)

The famous American breakfast - home made thick pancakes with syrup and blueberries, topped off with a few rashers of bacon. Anyone not wishing for a coronary usually opts for a bowl of muesli, so I’m told. Pancakes all the way for me!
I love to eat breakfast, it’s the best meal of the day as far as I’m concerned. Pancakes, cereal, brunch, eggs, healthy breakfasts, greasy breakfasts, I’m not fussy. My only trouble is what to choose.
Here are some of the best of the best from around the world:
An Egyptian Breakfast
The breakfast of choice here is Foul Madammas. It’s made from fava beans, chickpeas, garlic and lemon. Above you’ll see the dish topped with olive oil, cayenne, tahini sauce, a hard boiled egg, and some diced green veggies.
Breakfast in Colombia
There are a variety of regional staples to keep your stomach grumbles at bay throughout the day. In Cundinamarca this changua dish is very popular. It’s made from milk, scallions and cheese.
Breakfast in Mexico
The delightful plate above consists of beef tips, chilaquiles and other assorted goodies eaten in Manzanillo. Nachos, cheese and beans always feature heavily and a delicious, spicy breakfast is the norm.
A Canadian breakfast
That eggy looking section is actually perogies. Perogies are boiled, baked or fried dumplings made from unleavened dough and traditionally stuffed with potato filling, sauerkraut, ground meat, cheese, or fruit. Then you’ve got some sausages and toast to mop it all up.
Icelandic Breakfast Cuisine
A hearty and hot breakfast to fight off the dark, icy mornings is what’s needed here. Hafragrautur, or oatmeal, is served with a sprinkle of brown sugar with a few raisins or nuts on top, perfect.

Well we, the fans, just want to watch basketball. The players rejected the NBA's latest ultimatum proposal. But I think I speak for the millions of fans when I say, "we just want to watch NBA basketball!"

This is just one of the beautiful pieces by Albert Beirstadt.
Here is a site you can go to see a lot more of his artwork. The man was apparently a genius. And a pretty good painter, too.
There are some really great quizzes over at The Christian Science Monitor (CSMonitor.com)! There are literally pages & pages of them too. Go take a few and see how smart you are..
