Photo of Coranderrk St/Constitution Ave intersection at 5:34pm on Wednesday August 2nd

Here is a photo I took on Wednesday at 5:34pm looking towards the Coranderrk St/Constitution Ave intersection from the foot bridge which crosses Coranderrk St and joins the Reid CIT campus with the area in front of the convention centre.

The intersection of Coranderrk St and Constitution Ave in Canberra at 5:34pm on Wednesday August 2, 2006

The photo is out of focus a bit, but I think it worked out well…I like the effect the moving cars had on the slightly longer than usual exposure time, which was the camera’s attempt at compensating for poor light.

The Cunning Blonde

This one was sent by “Paul” to Stuart Bocking about a week ago…it’a nother Blonde joke, but it’s not your average Blonde joke…read on…

There was a blonde who found herself sitting next to a Lawyer on an airplane.

The lawyer just kept bugging the blonde wanting her to play a game of intelligence. Finally, the lawyer offered her 10 to 1 odds, and said every time the blonde could not answer one of his questions, she owed him $5, but every time he could not answer hers, he’d give her $50.

The lawyer figured he could not lose, and the blonde reluctantly accepted.

The lawyer first asked, “What is the distance between the Earth and the nearest star?”
Without saying a word the blonde handed him $5.

Then the blonde asked, “What goes up a hill with 3 legs and comes back down the hill with 4 legs?”
Well, the lawyer looked puzzled. He took several hours, looking up everything he could on his laptop and even placing numerous air-to-ground phone calls trying to find the answer. Finally, angry and frustrated, he gave up and paid the blonde $50

The blonde put the $50 into her purse without comment, but the lawyer insisted, “What is the answer to your question?”
Without saying a word, the blonde handed him $5.

$40 profit…probably come in handy at some stage.
