Flag Day

Fred ran a flag making business. Things were looking bleak when, out of the blue, someone called from the Paraguayan Embassy. They needed an urgent consignment of 1000 Paraguayan flags by the following week.

Fred got to work straight away. He got a picture of the current Paraguayan flag, got hold of the required cloth and he and his staff worked without stopping until the flags were dispatched. The business was saved, or so he thought.

Unfortunately, the Embassy refused to pay and returned them all. Fred has now lost his business, but why?

On a side note, Happy 4th of July! It's going to be a nice long weekend for me, so I'll see you on Wednesday!

Is it raining again?

The science teacher loves to trick his class every year with his lesson on making a cloud in a very large water jug.

To make the cloud he fills the jug with a gallon of water, starts a match and lets some of the smoke seep into the jug (the water needs something to cling to to make the cloud).

Then he starts to pressurize it manually. He gets a pump and he starts pumping it. He pumps for about a minute and still no cloud. All of his students think he is doing something wrong, but he just isn't done, yet. What's the last step?

What am I

"I am the center of gravity, hold a capital situation in Vienna, and as I am foremost in every victory, am allowed by all to be invaluable. Though I am invisible, I am clearly seen in the midst of a river. I could name three who are in love with me and have three associates in vice. It is vain that you seek me for I have long been in heaven yet even now lie embalmed in the grave. What am I?"

Like shiny stars rested on an even plain,
The rubber planet will soon crash.

They save the 'stars' and they laugh.

Riddle me this?

Mates unbalanced,
Or so they seem;
But paired in tandem,
A deadly team.

She so gently round,
Him so firm and straight,
Yet when they are compounded,
Woe to them they hate.
