RCMP Authority - A Joke

A Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) officer stops at a ranch in Alberta, and talks with an old rancher. He tells the rancher, 'I need to inspect your ranch for illegally grown drugs.'

The old rancher says, 'Okay, but don't go in that field over there.'

Sapphire Knife

Russian guys make knives out of sapphire.
These knives can be easily taken inside the airplane in your handbag, for example if you care about your right to use your knife anywhere you want. These knives cannot be discovered by any sort of metal-detector, they have none metal parts at all. Their blades are being made from artificial sapphire, the same material that is being used to make non-scratchable watches by leading Swiss brands. Handles are made of the bone.

People Who Accidentally Found a Fortune

The man who bought an official copy of the Declaration of Independence for $4
A man, who was not identified, bought a torn painting for $4 in a flea market in Adamstown, Pa., because he was interested in its frame. When he got home he removed the painting - a dismal country scene - and concluded the frame could not be salvaged, but found one of the 500 official copies from the Declaration of Independence, folded and hidden in the backing. The copy is a crisp, clean broadside, creased along lines where it had been folded. It was printed by John Dunlap on July 4, 1776, to carry news of America's independence to the citizens of the 13 colonies. It is one of 24 known copies of the Declaration, and one of only three remaining in private hands.

The $4 bargain was auctioned for $2,420,000 at Sotheby's. The buyer was Donald J. Scheer of Atlanta, president of Visual Equities Inc.

The Men's Rules
At last a guy has taken the time to write this all down. Finally, the guys' side of the story. ( I must admit, it's pretty good). We always hear "the rules" from the female side, now here are the rules from the male side. These are our rules! Please note: these are all numbered "1" ON PURPOSE! Pay careful attention to the ones in red

1. Men are NOT mind readers. ( FIRST and FOREMOST RULE )

1. Learn to work the toilet seat. You're a big girl. If it's up, put it down. We need it up, you need it down. You don't hear us complaining about you leaving it down.

10 Biggest Naval Ships

The ocean is home to some amazing moving bodies of which some stretch almost half-a-kilometer and sketch a daunting figure in the horizon. Today, we present to you the list of the biggest naval ships ever built. Rather unsurprisingly, most of the ships in the list belong to the US Navy.

No 10. Shinano – 266 meters
Country: Imperial Japan
Commissioning: 1944
Type: Aircraft carrier
This ship was named after the ancient Japanese province Shinano. It was used during World War 2. When built, it was the largest aircraft carrier of its time. The Shinano met its demise when it was sunk by the submarine USS Archer-Fish on 29 November 1944, just 10 days after her commisioning.
