A Honda mechanic was removing a cylinder head from the motor of a Honda when he spotted a well-known cardiologist in his shop.
The cardiologist was there waiting for the service manager to come and take a look at his car when the mechanic shouted across the garage,
"Hey Doc, want to take a look at this?"
The cardiologist, a bit surprised walked over to where the mechanic was working on the Honda.
The mechanic straightened up, wiped his hands on a rag and asked,
"So Doc, look at this engine. I opened its heart, took the valves out, repaired or replaced anything damaged, and then put everything back in, and when I finished, it worked just like new.
So how is it that I make $24,000 a year and you make $1.7M when you and I are doing basically the same work?
The cardiologist paused, leaned over, and then whispered to the mechanic.
"Try doing it with the engine running."

Smith's new nose - a story you can listen to
- with the transcript and activities
a foreign city" - a poem by Elizabeth Jennings
"You cannot speak for no one knows
Your language. You must try to catch
By glances or a steadfast gaze
The attitude of those you watch...
Noises may find you but not speech...
Now you have circled silence, stare
With all the subtlety of sight.
Noise may trap ears but eye discerns"
Crossing your fingers helps to avoid bad luck and helps
a wish come true
A lock of hair from a baby's first haircut should be
kept for good luck
If the bottom of your feet itch, you will make a trip
An itchy palm means money will come your way
Warm hands, cold heart
Cold hands, warm heart
