Hello, and welcome to the...
Hotch Potch English ~ Mega Minute Podcast No.44!
'shipping' OR 'cargo'?!

Today's Quote

"Why is it that when you transport something by car, it's called shipment but when you transport something by ship it's called cargo?"  (Anonymous)

Today's Facts


Men honk more than women, and men and women honk more at women than at men.

Drivers in convertibles with the tops down are less likely to honk than those with the top up.

Drivers honk faster at cars whose drivers are on cell phones. And drivers are more likely to honk at people from another state or country than their own.

Drivers honk less on weekends.

Today's Joke

The probability of being involved in a traffic accident is directly
proportional to time spent on the road.  Driving fast decreases one's
exposure.

One third of traffic accidents are caused by drunk drivers; two thirds
are caused by non-drunk drivers.

Therefore, the safest way to drive is drunk and VERY fast.

That's all for today!

And see you next time!
