DAUGHTER'S LETTER HOME FROM COLLEGE [Aug. 7th, 2002|07:45 am]
Peter Sheil
An exact replica of a letter a daughter wrote to her parents
from college:

Dear Mom and Dad,

It has now been three months since I left for college. I have
been remiss in writing this and I am very sorry for my
thoughtlessness in not having written before. I will bring you
up to date now, but, before you read on, please sit down.

YOU ARE NOT TO READ ANY FURTHER UNLESS YOU ARE SITTING DOWN, OKAY?

British Mensa Candidates Mistake Canada for Australia [Aug. 7th, 2002|12:27 pm]
Peter Sheil
I heard this on the BBC, so it must be true.

When she stepped off the plane, 19-year-old Emma Nunn from Great Britain thought to herself, 'oh my gosh, we're in Canada!' Her surprise is understandable since she and her boyfriend thought they were going to Sydney, Australia, not Sydney, Nova Scotia. They chalk it up to a mistake while ordering their tickets online, and thought nothing of it when they started the first leg on their journey "down under" aboard an Air Canada flight in London. But they began to get suspicious when the jet touched down in Halifax, Nova Scotia. When they finally realized that was as far as they were going they made the best of their stay soaking up the culture of the small industrial town on the coast of Cape Breton Island.
