      Assassins
      By Sonny · Posted
      Two assassins are hired to kill a dictator in South America. They follow his every move for months, and find out that every day at noon he goes outside and does his stretching exercises.

      So the assassins set up shop right across the street, get all of their sights set, load the guns, and have everything ready to go.

      Noon comes, no dictator... 10 minutes longer... no dictator.

      One assassin turns to the other and says, "Gee, I hope nothing happened to him."

      Business one-liners 21 & 22
      By Sonny · Posted
      Business one-liners 21 & 22: Democracy is that form of government where everybody gets what the majority deserves. Diplomacy is the ability to tell someone to "get lost" in such a way that they look forward to the trip. Diplomacy is the art of letting someone else have your way. Diplomacy is the art of saying "nice doggy" until you find a large enough rock. Do not believe in miracles, rely on them. Do someone a favor and it becomes your job. Do whatever your enemies do not want you to do. Doing a good job around here is like wetting your pants in a dark suit; you get a warm feeling, but nobody notices. Don't be irreplaceable; if you cannot be replaced, you cannot be promoted. Don't be so open minded that your brain falls out. Business one-liners 22: Don't bite the hand that has your paycheck in it. Don't blame me; nobody asked my opinion. Don't do today that which can be put off till tomorrow. Don't force it, get a bigger hammer. Don't get lost in the shuffle, shuffle along with the lost. Don't lend people money...it gives them amnesia. Don't let your mouth write no check that your tail can't cash. - Bo Diddley Don't look back, something may be gaining on you. Don't make your doctor your heir. Don't mess with Mrs. Murphy! Don't permit yourself to get between a dog and a lamppost.

      Another Blonde Joke
      By Sonny · Posted
      One day a Blonde was going down the road in her car when she sees a car accident. She comes to a stop 2 miles down the road because she hit the gas instead of the brakes.
      The Blonde then proceeds to pull out 2 naked cardboard men that she put long coats on. She then sets them up along side the road.
      After an hour passes and traffic backs up 12 miles, a cop comes by. The cop pulls over onto the side of the road. He steps out and asks the woman what those cardboard things are for. She says, "Oh nothing sir, these are just my emergency flashers."

      54H60 Blade Inspection
      By quietleader · Posted
      If it takes approximately four hours to inspect a 54H60 propeller blade using conventional (manual) methods, and an automated inspection system reduces inspection time to only 30 minutes or less, why don't propeller MRO shops take advantage of those man-hour savings? Here is an example of automatic 54H60 (laser) inspection: https://vimeo.com/185271141

      Business one-liners 19 & 20
      By Sonny · Posted
      Business one-liners 19 & 20:   Common sense is not so common.   Common sense is the most evenly distributed quantity in the world. Everyone thinks he has enough. - Descartes, 1637   Communication with the dead is only a little more difficult than communication with (Insert Your Favorite Group - Engineering/Financial...)   Competition brings out the best in products and the worst in people.   Complex problems have simple, easy to understand, wrong answers.   Confession is good for the soul, but bad for the career.   Confidence is the feeling you have before you understand the situation.   Confusion creates jobs.   Conscience is what hurts when everything else feels good.   Conscious is being aware of something; conscience is wishing you weren't.   Business one-liners 20:   Consciousness: that annoying time between naps.   Cop-out number 1. You should have seen it when I got it.   Create a need and fill it.   Creativity is great, but plagiarism is faster.   Creativity is no substitute for knowing what you're doing.   Creditors have better memories than debtors.   Crime wouldn't pay if the government ran it.   Dare to be average.   Defeat is worse than death because you have to live with defeat.   Definition of an elephant: A mouse built to government specifications.

      Three Buddies
      By Sonny · Posted
      Three buddies die in a car crash, and they go to heaven to an orientation.

      They are all asked, "When you are in your casket and friends and family are mourning upon you, what would you like to hear them say about you? The first guy says, "I would like to hear them say that I was a great doctor of my time, and a great family man."

      The second guy says, "I would like to hear that I was a wonderful husband and school teacher which made a huge difference in our children of tomorrow."

      The last guy replies, "I would like to hear them say, "Look! He's moving!"

      Business one-liners 17 & 18
      By Sonny · Posted
      Business one-liners 17 & 18: Beware the fury of a patient man. - John Dryden Beware the man of one book. - St. Thomas Aquinas Beware the wrath of a patient person. Blessed are those who go around in circles, for they shall be known as wheels. Blessed is he who expects no gratitude, for he shall not be disappointed. Blessed is he who has reached the point of no return and knows it for he shall enjoy living. Boldly going forward because we cannot find reverse. Build a system that even a fool can use, and only a fool will want to use it. Build something foolproof and every fool will use it. Bureaucracy: a method for transforming energy into solid waste. Business one-liners 18: By the time you can make ends meet, they've moved the ends. By the time you have the right answers, no one is asking you questions. By working faithfully eight hours a day you may eventually get to work twelve hours a day. - Robert Frost Cant produces countercant. Capitalism is based on the assumption that you can win. Change is inevitable, except from a vending machine. Chipped dishes never break. Clearly stated instructions will consistently produce multiple interpretations. Cocaine is nature's way of telling you you have too much money. Commit suicide. A hundred thousand lemmings cannot be wrong.
