    Scientists at NASA built a gun specifically to launch standard 4

    pound dead chickens at the windshields of airliners, military jets and

    the space shuttle, all traveling at maximum velocity. The idea is to

    simulate the frequent incidents of collisions with airborne fowl to test

    the strength of the windshields.


    British engineers heard about the gun and were eager to test it on

    the windshields of their new high speed trains. Arrangements were made,

    and a gun was sent to the British engineers.


    When the gun was fired, the engineers stood shocked as the

    chicken hurled out of the barrel, crashed into the shatterproof shield,

    smashed it to smithereens, blasted through the control console, snapped

    the engineer's back-rest in two, and embedded itself in the back wall of

    the cabin, like an arrow shot from a bow.


    The horrified Brits sent NASA the disastrous results of the

    experiment, along with the designs of the windshield and begged the U.S

    scientists for suggestions.


    NASA responded with a one-line memo -- "Defrost the chicken."

    Sometimes it does take a rocket scientist!

    that was awesome.

    check this
    A funeral service is held for a woman who just passed away. As the pallbearers carry the casket out, they accidentally bump into a wall.

    They hear a faint moan. They open the casket and find that the woman is actually alive.

    She lives for 10 more years and then dies. They have another funeral for her. At the end of the service, the pallbearers carry out the casket.
    As they are walking, the husband cries out, "Watch out for the wall!"
