In a monotone voice: "unfortunate"

Story: we were sitting around a campfire one night and my buddy's chair broke. We hear a crack and look over as he is rolling onto the lawn trying not to spill his beer. As he's laying on the ground in a monotone voice he says "unfortunate" and that was it. I promised him if I could those would be my dying words.

Don't put the hood on Boss, I's afraid of the dark.

Let Them Wonder Forever

[rebelmouse-image 18353898 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I would murmur the bass line from Queen's Under Pressure while staring deeply into my executioner's eyes... forever leaving him wondering whether it was Under Pressure or _Ice Ice Baby. _That's Satan material.

There is an island with 12 islanders. All of the islanders individually weigh exactly the same amount, except for one, who either weighs more or less than the other 11.

You must use a see-saw to figure out whose weight is different, and you may only use the see-saw 3 times. There are no scales or other weighing device on the island.

How can you find out which islander is the one that has a different weight?

Kung Fu Challenge, Anyone?

[rebelmouse-image 18353911 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

While I regret my crimes, and the pain and damage that I have done, I must state at this time that I have been withholding one bit of information: I did not act alone. In fact, looking through the glass just now, I see my accomplice in this room. This person has pledged, upon the moment of my execution, to avenge my death by killing the person closest to him. My accomplice is a kung-fu master, and will certainly be able to commit this murder before any of you have time to react. Look around you. Do you think the person next to you is capable of killing you instantly? Let's find out, shall we?

Warden, you may proceed.

What's the deal with execution ? A life long sentence is more painful. It's like if my lil brother is annoying me and I break his Batman Vs Super Man DVD instead of forcing him to watch it.

Tell my children I love them. Tell my family all is forgiven. Tread gently upon this earth, and may your light shine brightly all of your days. I go on to a better place, but let us never forget that in 1998 the Undertaker threw Mankind off Hell in a Cell, and he plummeted 16 ft through an announcers table.

Finally Some Honesty
