>Subject: Guy in a bar
>This guy goes up to a bar located at the top of the Empire State
>Building in New York. It looks like a nice place and he takes a
>seat at the bar next to another guy.
>"This is a nice place, I've never been here", the first guy says.
>"Oh really?", the other replies, "it's also a very special bar".
>"Why is that?", the first guy asks.
>"Well, you see that painting on the far wall? That's an original
>Van Gogh, and this stool I'm sitting on was on the Titanic."
>"Gee, that's amazing!", the first guy says.
>"Not only that, but you see that window over there, fourth from the
>right? Well, the wind does strange things outside that window.
>If you jump out you'll fall about 50 feet before the wind catches
>you and you're pushed back up."
>"No way, that's impossible", the first guy replies.
>"Not at all, take a look", the other man replies and walks over to
>the window, followed closely by the first man. He opens the window,
>climbs over the sill and falls out. He drops 10...20...30...40...50
>feet, comes to a stop, and whoosh! He comes right back up and sails
>back through the window.
>"See, it's fun. You should try it", he says.
>"Try it, I don't even believe I saw it!", the first man shouts.
>"It's easy. Watch, I'll do it again". And with that, he falls out the
>window again. He drops 10...20...30...40...50 feet, comes to a stop,
>and whoosh! He comes right back up and sails back through the window.
>"Give it a try, it's a blast", he says.
>"Well, what the heck, I'll give it a try", the first man says and
>proceeds to fall out the window. He falls 10... 20... 30... ...40
>..50...60...70...80...90..100...feet and splat!
>He ends up as road kill on the sidewalk.
>After watching the first man fall to his death, the other guy
>casually closes the window and heads back to the bar and orders
>The bartender arrives with the drink and says, "You know, Superman,
>you're a real asshole when you drink !!!!"
