Americans spend most time on the internet

Figures for March show the US leading the way for time spent online, with the average user spending almost an hour a day surfing.

Americans spend more time surfing the internet than anyone else in the world, with users clocking up an average of nearly 28 hours a month.

This obsession with the net sees Americans spending almost double the amount of time online than users in Australia.
The data, from Nielsen Online, shows the rest of the world has yet to become quite so fixated with the world wide web.
Europe lags behind, with the French spending just under 20 hours connected to the net.
Spain comes in third with the average Spaniard spending just under 18 hours online.

Users in the UK spend 17 and a half hours online, just above Germany and Italy on 16 hours.
But the US may soon see another nation vying for the top spot however.
China has overtaken the West in its love of the internet and is now home to more internet users than the US.
The comparatively unfettered internet, while still subject to certain amounts of censorship, is proving more attractive to Chinese than ever, with 61 per cent more people going online in the past year.
There were more than 221 million Chinese online at the end of February, compared to the 137 million surfing at the start of 2007.
Video-sharing websites are the most popular.

Bronze Rat and Big story..

A Sri lankan tourist walks into a curio shop in San Francisco.

Looking around at the exotica, he notices a very lifelike,

Life-sized bronze statue of a rat. It has no price tag,

But is so striking he decides he must have it.

He takes it to the owner: "How much for the bronze rat?"

"Twelve dollars for the rat, one hundred dollars for the Story,"says the owner.

The tourist gives the man twelve dollars.

"I'll just take the rat, you can keep the story."

As he walks down the street carrying his bronze rat,

He notices that a few real rats crawl out of the alleys

And sewers and begin following him down the street.

This is disconcerting; he begins walking faster.

But within a couple blocks, the herd of rats behind

Him grows to hundreds, and they begin squealing.

He begins to trot toward the Bay, looking around to see

That the rats now numbered in the MILLIONS, and are still

Squealing and coming toward him faster and faster.

Concerned, even scared, he runs to the edge of the Bay

And throws the bronze rat as far out into the Bay as he

Can. Amazingly, the millions of rats all jump into the Bay

After it, and are all drowned.

The man walks back to the curio shop.

"Ah ha," says the owner, "You have come back for the Story?"

"No," says the man, "I came back to see if you have a statue of an Sri lankan politician in bronze!!

Funniest Airline Announcements

*Funniest Airline Announcements*

*United Flight Attendant announced, 'People, people we're not picking out
furniture here, find a seat and get in it!*


*On landing, the stewardess said, 'Please be sure to take all of your
belongings. If you're going to leave anything, please make sure it's
something we'd like to have. '*


*'There may be 50 ways to leave your lover, but there are only 4 ways out
of this airplane'*


*An airline pilot wrote that on this particular flight he had hammered his
ship into the runway really hard. The airline had a policy which required
the first officer to stand at the door while the passengers exited, smile,
and give them a 'Thanks for flying our airline.' He said that, in light of
his bad landing, he had a hard time looking the passengers in the eye,
thinking that someone would have a smart comment. Finally everyone had
gotten off except for a little old lady walking with a cane. *

*She said, 'Sir, do you mind if I ask you a question?'*

*'Why, no, Ma'am,' said the pilot. 'What is it?'*

*The little old lady said, 'Did we land, or were we shot down?'*


*As the plane landed and was coming to a stop at Ronald Reagan, a lone
voice came over the loudspeaker: 'Whoa, big fella, WHOA!'*


*After a particularly rough landing during thunderstorms in Memphis, a
flight attendant on a Northwest flight announced, 'Please take care when
opening the overhead compartments because sure as hell everything has
shifted after a landing like that.'*


*Another flight attendant's comment on a less than perfect landing: 'We
ask you to please remain seated as Captain Kangaroo bounces us to the


*Overheard on an American Airlines flight into Amarillo , Texas on a
particularly windy and bumpy day: During the final approach, the Captain
was really having to fight it. After an extremely hard landing, the Flight
Attendant said, 'Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to Amarillo . Please remain
in your seats with your seat belts fastened while the Captain taxis what's
left of our airplane to the gate!'*


*'Your seat cushions can be used for flotation; and, in the event of an
emergency water landing, please paddle to shore and take them with our


*'As you exit the plane, make sure to gather all of your belongings.
Anything left behind will be distributed evenly among the flight
attendants. Please do not leave children or spouses......except for that
gentleman over there.'*


*Heard on Southwest Airlines just after a very hard landing in Salt Lake
City . The flight attendant came on the intercom and said, 'That was quite
a bump, and I know what y'all are thinking. I'm here to tell you it wasn't
the airline's fault, it wasn't the pilot's fault, it wasn't the flight
attendant's fault, it was the asphalt.'*


*After a real crusher of a landing in Phoenix , the attendant came on
with, 'Ladies and Gentlemen, please remain in your seats until Capt. Crash
and the Crew have brought the aircraft to a screeching halt against the
gate. And, once the tire smoke has cleared and the warning bells are
silenced, we'll open the door and you can pick your way through the wreckage
to the terminal.'*


*Part of a flight attendant's arrival announcement: 'We'd like to thank
you folks for flying with us today. And, the next time you get the insane
urge to go blasting through the skies in a pressurized metal tube, we hope
you'll think of US Airways.'*


*Heard on a Southwest Airline flight - 'Ladies and gentlemen, if you wish
to smoke, the smoking section on this airplane is on the wing and if you can
light 'em, you can smoke 'em.'*


*A plane was taking off from Kennedy Airport . After it reached a
comfortable cruising altitude, the captain made an announcement over the
intercom, 'Ladies and gentlemen, this is your captain speaking. Welcome to
Flight Number 293, nonstop from New York to Los Angeles. The weather ahead
is good and, therefore, we should have a smooth and uneventful flight. Now
sit back and relax... OH, MY GOD!' Silence followed, and after a few
minutes, the captain came back on the intercom and said, 'Ladies and
Gentlemen, I am so sorry if I scared you earlier. While I was talking to
you, the flight attendant accidentally spilled a cup of hot coffee in my
lap. You should see the front of my pants!'*

*A passenger in Coach yelled, 'That's nothing. You should see the back of

Colonel Gaddafi has his own style

Colonel Gaddafi has his own style

It’s been already 40 years since Colonel Gaddafi came to power in Libya. He is a very controversial figure.

But we won’t talk about the controversy that is around him. In this post, we will talk about his dressing style.

You will easily recognize him on the pictures. He can’t stand suits and his clothes are often quite extravagant.
Here is a little fashion lesson by “Brotherly Leader and Guide of the Revolution.”
