Mir Formality

Baltimore Area Council

After intensive investigations on both Soviet and US parts, both space agencies have determined the cause for the accident which has placed the station and its resident personnel in jeopardy. In terse statements at a recent press conference, Soviet and US space agencies spokespersons said Thursday, "We have concluded joint investigations concerning this potentially tragic accident and each nation's team, separately, has arrived at identical conclusions for this incident. One thing and one thing only caused the accident only... OBJECTS IN MIR ARE CLOSER THAN THEY APPEAR."



Santa Clara County Council

A person comes on stage, looking up at the sky.  Each following person comes in, looks at the first person, then looks up at the sky and continues looking.  They continue this for a while, until the last person asks the one ahead of him what hes looking at.  He doesnt know, and asks the one ahead of him and so up so the first one, who says, Im not looking at anything.  I have a stiff neck.
