(I can’t help but wonder how commercial networks force the original author of this one to watch their commercials. Sounds counter-productive to me. Force me to watch your commercial and I’m just not going to buy what you’re peddling. – Ed)
Sound on and watch.
Every night and day we sit and moan about the rubbish being passed off as commercials that we are forced to watch by our commercial networks.
If only we could make commercials like this one, there would be no complaints forthcoming. This really is magical…..
David Attenborough does it again!
What a stunning commercial from BBC !

I was thinking about how a status symbol of today is those cell phones that everyone has clipped onto their belt or purse. I can’t afford one. So, I’m wearing my garage door opener.
I also made a cover for my hearing aid and now I have what they call blue teeth, I think.
You know, I spent a fortune on deodorant before I realized that people didn’t like me anyway.
I was thinking that women should put pictures of missing husbands on beer cans!
I thought about making a fitness movie for folks my age, and call it ‘Pumping Rust’.
I’ve gotten that dreaded furniture disease. That’s when your chest is falling into your drawers!
When people see a cat’s litter box, they always say, ‘Oh, have you got a cat?’ Just once I want to say, ‘No, it’s for company!’
Employment application blanks always ask who is to be notified in case of an emergency. I think you should write, ‘A Good Doctor’!
I was thinking about how people seem to read the Bible a whole lot more as they get older. Then, it dawned on me. They were cramming for their finals.
As for me, I’m just hoping God grades on the curve.
A penny saved is a government oversight.
The older you get, the tougher it is to lose weight, because by then your body and your fat have gotten to be really good friends.
The easiest way to find something lost around the house is to buy a replacement.
He who hesitates is probably right.
Did you ever notice: The Roman Numerals for forty (40) are XL.
If you can smile when things go wrong, you have someone in mind to blame.
The sole purpose of a child’s middle name is so he can tell when he’s really in trouble..
Aging: Eventually you will reach a point when you stop lying about your age and start bragging about it.
Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know ‘why’ I look this way. I’ve traveled a long way and some of the roads weren’t paved.
When you are dissatisfied and would like to go back to your youth, think of Algebra.
One of the many things no one tells you about aging is that it is such a nice change from being young. Ah, being young is beautiful, but being old is comfortable.
Lord, Keep your arm around my shoulder and your hand over my mouth ..

This is not a joke, they do sell for $600.00 and they won’t be able to make them fast enough.
Here’s a one seater car that will get you back and forth to work on the cheap…

Volkswagen did a lot of very highly protected testing of this car in Germany; it was not announced until now where the car would make its first appearance…
The car was introduced at the VW stockholders meeting as the most economical car in the world!
The initial objective of the prototype was to prove that 1 litre of fuel could deliver 100 kilometres of travel.
Its Spartan interior does not sacrifice safety; the impact and roll-over protection is comparable to a GT
The aero design proved essential to getting the desired result.
The body is 3.47 meters long and just 1.25 meters wide, and a little over a meter high.
The prototype was made completely of carbon fibre and is not painted to save weight.
The power plant is a one cylinder diesel, positioned ahead of the rear axle and combined with an automatic shift controlled by a knob in the interior.
The Most Economic Car in the World will be on sale next year:
Better than Electric Car – 258 miles/gallon: IPO 2010 in Shanghai
This is a single-seat car From conception to production: 3 years and the company is headquartered in Hamburg , Germany .
Will be selling for 4000 Yuan, equivalent to US $600..
Gas tank capacity = 1.7 gallons
Speed = 62 – 74.6 Miles/hour
Fuel efficiency = 258 miles/gallon
Travel distance with a full tank = 404 miles or 646 km !!!

This would be one of the most dramatic maritime photographs of a Captain and his ship…
Photographer James Morgan decided to create something a bit special to mark the Queen Mary 2’s 10th anniversary.
When he first suggested placing Captain Kevin Oprey on the liner’s bulbous bow for the photo shoot, people apparently looked at him like he was ‘a bit mad’.
2. However, the idea was clearly inspired as the pictures look astonishing.
3. The shoot took place at a port off the coast of Bali with two safety boats positioned nearby just in case.
Commenting on the striking images, Morgan said: ‘It is this towering creature and this little man, it is an incredible juxtaposition. He is an incredible man, this beautiful huge liner he controls every day.
‘It is one of the most epic shoots I have ever done.’
