Business one-liners 21 & 22
By Sonny · PostedBusiness 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 · PostedOne 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 · PostedIf 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 · PostedBusiness 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.
By Sonny · PostedThree 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 · PostedBusiness 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.

Business one-liners 15 & 16
By Sonny · PostedBusiness one-liners 15 & 16: As the economy gets better, everything else gets worse. As they say in Beirut, Shiite happens. Asking dumb questions is easier than correcting dumb mistakes. Assumption is the mother of all foul-ups. At any level of traffic, any delay is intolerable. Automatic simply means that you can't repair it yourself. Bad news drives good news out of the media. Bare feet magnetize sharp metal objects so they always point upward from the floor. Batman is the hero any of us could be, given determination, exercise, and deep psychological trauma. - Chris Jarocha-Ernst Be content with what you've got, but be sure you've got plenty. Business one-liners 16: Beauty is only skin deep, ugly goes clear to the bone. Before you give a colleague a piece of your mind, be sure you can spare it. Being a good communicator means people find out what is really wrong with you. Believing is seeing. Better latent than never. Beware of a dark-haired man with a loud tie. Beware of a tall dark man with a spoon up his nose. Beware of altruism. It is based on self-deception, the root of all evil. Beware of one who works hard to learn something, learns it, and finds themself no wiser than before. They are full of murderous resentment of people who are ignorant without having come by their ignorance the hard way. - Sir John A. MacDonald, Canada's first prime minister Beware of those wearing suspenders with belts.
