Military distinction between “Guts” and “Balls”

Image result for cartoon pic of a fat witch

 

There is a medical distinction between “Guts” and “Balls”, according to the British military.

We’ve heard colleagues referring to people with “Guts”, or with “Balls”.

Do they, however, know the difference between them?

Here’s the official distinction; straight from the British Medical Journal: Volume 323; page 295.

GUTS – Is arriving home late, after a night out with the lads, being met by your wife with a broom, and having the “Guts” to ask: “Are you still cleaning, or are you flying somewhere?”

BALLS – Is coming home late after a night out with the lads, smelling of perfume and beer, lipstick on your collar, slapping your wife on the bum and having the “Balls” to say: ‘You’re next, Chubby.’

I trust this clears up any confusion.

Medically speaking, there is no difference in outcome; both are fatal.

An Active Prominence on the Sun
Video Credit: Chuck Ayoub (Chuck’s Astrophotography)

Explanation: Sometimes the Sun’s surface becomes a whirlwind of activity. Pictured is a time-lapse video of the Sun‘s surface taken over a two hour period in early May, run both forwards and backwards. The Sun’s surface was blocked out so that details over the edge could be imaged in greater detail. Hot plasma is seen swirling over the solar limb in an ongoing battle between changing magnetic fields and constant gravity. The featured prominence rises about one Earth-diameter over the Sun’s surface. Energetic events like this are becoming less common as the Sun nears a minimum in its 11-year activity cycle.

THE SPHINX—–BEES UNDERSTAND ZERO (NOTHING)

The Editor:   Do bees understand the concept of 0 ( zero ) in mathematics, LL ?

Zero Cat:  They sure do.  As a matter of fact,  Americans  would be better off if bees ran the government.   So far there is no evidence that they understand  minus ( – ) in mathematics.  There would be no deficit spending.

Here are some bees brought over to South America, from Africa, to increase the honey production, but they escaped and mated with regular bees.  Their new name is Killer Bees.  They understand stinging.

Here is a piece of trash Bee.  Sam is going to the Rosie O’Donnell Beauty School to improve her appearance.   Just a touch of a little more testosterone here and there and she will be suitable.

Mars Engulfed

Explanation: What’s happened to Mars? In 2001, Mars underwent a tremendous planet-wide dust storm — one of the largest ever recorded from Earth. To show the extent, these two Hubble Space Telescope storm watch images from late June and early September (2001) offer dramatically contrasting views of the martian surface. At left, the onset of smaller “seed” storms can be seen near the Hellas basin (lower right edge of Mars) and the northern polar cap. A similar surface view at right, taken over two months later, shows the fully developed extent of the obscuring global storm. Although this storm eventually waned, in recent days a new large dust storm has been taking hold of the red planet.
