That story was doing the rounds at my university (University College Dublin) back in the '80s - some of us pinned our hopes on it being true 😁

Haha. And what about the one where the prospective student enters the room and finds the interviewer seated behind his desk, reading a newspaper. "Make an impression!" says the interviewer, from behind the newspaper. So the student walks forward, takes out his lighter and sets fire to the newspaper. 😄

I shall start off with the Fairey Firefly U.8 pilotless drone .......  why was it a two-seater?  :hmmm:

 

 

Couldn't resist to answer: it does not state "man"less, two lesser civilians suffice.

Back in the days when state pensions were paid in cash and collected from the post office....

 

Why were there always a queue of pensioners 15 minutes before the post office opened? Were they worried the post office would run out of money?

Why are there indicators on cars if people do not use them.

...or mirrors....

 

I blame it on a spelling mistake on the lease form. EGO instead of ECO.

Allegedly this was a (the?) question one year in Cambridge philosophy tripos final exams.  Equally allegedly, one student wrote, “Why not?” And got a First.  No, not sure I believe it either. 

That actually happened in my college Philosophy class, he was the only student to get an “A” on his final exam.

If the flight recorders are typically the only thing that survives a plane crash, why dont they make the whole plane out of the same stuff the flight recorders are made from?

Why do they call them black boxes when they're really orange.

When I lose something why do I only find it in the last place I look and never the first place? I've tried looking in the last place first but that never seems to work.

I've started to continue searching for the item after I've found it - if keep extending the search time I hope to move the success rate a lot closer to the first place I look.

The version we had going around was. For a philosophy exam the essay question was : "what is courage?" And one student wrote: "This" with the rest of the page blank...🙂
