I enjoyed this joke very much , wanted to share it with you people. Please read on...
A man was leaving a cafe with his morning coffee when he noticed a most unusual funeral procession. A funeral coffin was followed by a second one about 50 feet behind the first. Behind the second coffin was a solitary man walking with a black dog. Behind him was a queue of 200 men walking in single line. The man couldn't stand his curiosity. He approached the man walking with the dog, "I am so sorry for your loss, and I know now is a bad time to disturb you, but I've never seen a funeral like this with so many of you walking in single line. Whose funeral is it?" The man replied, "Well, that first coffin is for my wife. " The inquisitive man asked, "What happened to her?" The man replied, "My dog attacked and killed her. " He inquired further, "Well, who is in the second coffin?" The man answered, "My mother-in-law. She was trying to help my wife when the dog attacked and killed her also." A thoughtful moment of silence passes between the two men. Then the first one asks in excitement "Can I borrow the dog?" The man replied "Please join the queue."

You're really tired, and frustrated. Suddenly you start experiencing severe pain in your chest that starts to radiate out into your arm and up into your jaw. You are only five miles from the hospital nearest your home. Unfortunately you don't know if you'll be able to make it that far.
You have been trained in CPR, but the person that taught the course did not tell you how to perform it on yourself.
Since many people are alone when they suffer a heart attack, without help,
the person whose heart is beating improperly and who begins to feel faint,
has only about 10 seconds left before losing conscious. However, these victims can help themselves by coughing repeatedly and very vigorously. A deep breath should be taken before each cough; the cough must be deep and prolonged, as when producing sputum from deep inside the chest. A breath and a cough must be repeated about every two seconds without let-up until help arrives, or until the heart is felt to be beating normally again. Deep breaths get oxygen into the lungs and coughing movements squeeze the heart and keep the blood circulating. The squeezing pressure on the heart also helps it regain normal rhythm. In this way, heart attack victims can get to a hospital.
Don't ever think that you are not prone to heart attack if your age is less than 25 or 30.
Nowadays due to the change in the life style, heart attack is found among people of all age groups.

immediately after a meal. These things may seem trivial but are of
serious consequence when practiced over a period of time.
The 7 important things that one shouldn't do after a meal are as follows:
1. Experiment from experts proves that smoking a cigarette
after meal is comparable to smoking 10 cigarettes (chances of cancer
2. Immediately eating fruits after meals will cause stomach to be bloated
with air. Therefore take fruit 1-2 hr after meal or 1hr before meal.
3. Don't drink tea immediately after meals. Because tea leaves contain
a high content of acid. This substance will cause the Protein content
in the food we consume to be hardened thus difficult to digest.
4. Don't sleep immediately after meals. The food we intake will not be
able to digest properly. Thus will lead to gastric & infection in our
5. Don't walk about immediately after meals. People always say that
after a meal walk a hundred steps and you will live till 99. In actual
fact this is not true. Walking will cause the digestive system to be
unable to absorb the nutrition from the food we intake.
6. Don't bathe immediately after meals - Bathing will cause the
increase of blood flow to the hands, legs & body thus the amount of
blood around the stomach will therefore decrease. This will weaken the
digestive system in our stomach.
7. Don't loosen your belt immediately after meals- Loosening the belt
after a meal will easily cause the intestine to be twisted & blocked.
