Attending a wedding for the first time, a little girl was mesmerized by the whole spectacle. Finally, she leaned over and whispered to her mother, "Why is the bride dressed in white?"
"Because white is the color of happiness, and today is the happiest day of her life," her mother explained, trying to keep it simple.
The youngster thought about this for a while.
"So why then," she finally asked her mother after putting the pieces together, "is the groom wearing black?"

Don’t you just hate it? You get all dressed up…all hot to trot…then you catch yourself in a mirror and realize: I forgot the lipstick! That just blows the whole look right then and there.

When you live in a tropical area, what’s wrong with having some good old fashioned Christmas spirit? A lot, that’s what! Especially when you decide to deck out the palm tree.

This is frightening! It works exactly like it says, and is one major reason people in cars can look right at you (when you’re on a motorcycle or bicycle)—AND NOT SEE YOU.
This is a great illustration of what we were taught about scanning outside the cockpit when I went through flight training. We were told to scan the horizon for a short distance, stop momentarily, and repeat the process. It was emphasized (repeatedly) to NOT fix your gaze for more than a couple of seconds on any single object. The instructors, some of whom were combat veterans with years of experience, instructed us to continually "keep our eyes moving and our head on a swivel" because this was the best way to survive, not only in combat, but from peacetime hazards (like a midair collision) as well. We basically had to take the advice on faith (until we could experience for ourselves) because the technology to demonstrate it didn’t exist at that time. The link below provides a vivid demo of how this happens.

Very interesting and can explain why once in a while when driving a car you’re suddenly surprised by something you hadn’t seen.
