A blind man and his guide dog went into a department store to do some shopping. all of a sudden, the man picked his dog up by the tail and started swinging him around in circles. A sales clerk who noticed this, rushed up to the man and said, "Sir! Is there anything I can help you with?!" to which the blind man replied, "No thanks, just looking around."

~~~~~~~ TRIVIA:

Waterjet cutting is an amazing technology that pumps water so quickly that it can cut through metal. These speeds are achieved by forcing water through a tiny sapphire hole a tenth of a millimeter across. The water is squeezed at a pressure of up to 60,000 pounds per square inch. (By comparison, the pressure of the atmosphere is only 14 pounds per square inch.) This process creates a thin "water laser" that can cut through steel, plastics, glass, paper, and woven materials without the distortion and shredding produced by normal cutting methods.
