Mosquito sting!

To be stung by a mosquito is not very pleasant. 
But the thought that an insect with just 10 brain cells could mess up your entire night is something quite different.

Do you know how to make a dumb person curious?”-
“No, how?”
“I’ll tell you tomorrow.”

I thought I’d tell you a good time travel joke – but you didn't like it.

Why did the octopus blush?
He’d just seen the bottom of the ocean!!!!

Japanese are giving up dating, just marrying pals!

To save on time and financial commitments that come with dating, more and more Japanese youth are turning to their friends and acquaintances for marriage. Recently a government survey found that 69% of Japanese men and 59% of Japanese women do not have a romantic partner. But another survey, carried out by the country's National Institute of Population and Social Security Research, reported that about 80% of unmarried Japanese want to get married. So, how does one expect to get married without first finding a romantic partner?  Simple, just marry your friend and give up dating. Japanese aggregator website Matome Naver has been awash with stories of how people have simply got married to life-long friends. The trend has been coined “Kousai zero Nichikon": roughly translated as “marrying without dating".

According to a Matome Naver, many Japanese are choosing to marry friends and acquaintances to save on time and financial commitments. Others appear to believe that marrying someone you aren't dating isn't just an acceptable last resort, it's actually better that way, eliminating the emotional exchanges of dating and allowing people to cut straight to the point. A column in the Joshi Spa! magazine even described hunting for a marriage partner in the traditional way as akin to committing suicide.

There is no real evidence that kousai zero nichikon is taking the far eastern islands by storm. But it draws parallels with Japan's mostly defunct omiai arranged marriage tradition.

Cemeteries and the wall!

"So what are you doing today?"
"What the heck, you were doing nothing the whole day yesterday!"
"That's right, and I'm not finished yet."

Why are cemeteries surrounded with walls? 

Because people are dying to get in there
Why do people never eat clocks?

Because it’s really time consuming.
There’s that moment when you put your steak on the grill and your mouth waters all over from that amazing smell. Do you vegans feel the same when you mow the grass?“
