World History According to Students

This history of the world has been compiled by Richard Lederer from actual student bloopers and mistakes collected by teachers.

The inhabitants of Egypt were called mummies. They lived in the Sarah Dessert and traveled by Camelot. The climate of the Sarah is such that the inhabitants have to live elsewhere, so certain areas of the dessert are cultivated by irritation. The Egyptians built the Pyramids in the shape of a huge triangular cube. The Pyramids are a range of mountains between France and Spain.

The Bible is full of interesting caricatures. In the first book of the Bible, Guinesses, Adam and Eve were created from an apple tree. One of their children, Cain, asked "Am I my brother's son?" God asked Abraham to sacrifice Issac on Mount Montezuma. Jacob, son of Issac, stole his brother's birthmark. Jacob was a partiarch who brought up his twelve sons to be partiarchs, but they did not take to it. One of Jacob's sons, Joseph, gave refuse to the Israelites.

Pharaoh forced the Hebrew slaves to make bread without straw. Moses led them to the Red Sea, where they made unleavened bread, which is bread made without any ingredients. Afterwards, Moses went up on Mount Cyanide to get the ten commandments. David was a Hebrew king skilled at playing the liar. He fougth with the Philatelists, a race of people who lived in Biblical times. Solomon, one of David's sons, had 500 wives and 500 porcupines.

Without the Greeks, we wouldn't have history. The Greeks invented three kinds of columns - Corinthian, Doric and Ironic. They also had myths. A myth is a female moth. One myth says that the mother of Achilles dipped him in the River Stynx until he became intolerable. Achilles appears in "The Illiad", by Homer. Homer also wrote the "Oddity", in which Penelope was the last hardship that Ulysses endured on his journey. Actually, Homer was not written by Homer but by another man of that name.

Socrates was a famous Greek teacher who went around giving people advice. They killed him. Socrates died from an overdose of wedlock.

In the Olympic Games, Greeks ran races, jumped, hurled the biscuits, and threw the java. The reward to the victor was a coral wreath. The government of Athen was democratic because the people took the law into their own hands. There were no wars in Greece, as the mountains were so high that they couldn't climb over to see what their neighbors were doing. When they fought the Parisians, the Greeks were outnumbered because the Persians had more men.

Eventually, the Ramons conquered the Geeks. History call people Romans because they never stayed in one place for very long. At Roman banquets, the guests wore garlic in their hair. Julius Caesar extinguished himself on the battlefields of Gaul. The Ides of March killed him because they thought he was going to be made king. Nero was a cruel tyrany who would torture his poor subjects by playing the fiddle to them.

Then came the Middle Ages. King Alfred conquered the Dames, King Arthur lived in the Age of Shivery, King Harlod mustarded his troops before the Battle of Hastings, Joan of Arc was cannonized by George Bernard Shaw, and the victims of the Black Death grew boobs on their necks. Finally, the Magna Carta provided that no free man should be hanged twice for the same offense.

In midevil times most of the people were alliterate. The greatest writer of the time was Chaucer, who wrote many poems and verse and also wrote literature. Another tale tells of William Tell, who shot an arrow through an apple while standing on his son's head.

The Renaissance was an age in which more individuals felt the value of their human being. Martin Luther was nailed to the church door at Wittenberg for selling papal indulgences. He died a horrible death, being excommunicated by a bull. It was the painter Donatello's interest in the female nude that made him the father of the Renaissance. It was an age of great inventions and discoveries. Gutenberg invented the Bible. Sir Walter Raleigh is a historical figure because he invented cigarettes. Another important invention was the circulation of blood. Sir Francis Drake circumcised the world with a 100-foot clipper.

The government of England was a limited mockery. Henry VIII found walking difficult because he had an abbess on his knee. Queen Elizabeth was the "Virgin Queen." As a queen she was a success. When Elizabeth exposed herself be fore her troops, they all shouted "hurrah." Then her navy went out and defeated the Spanish Armadillo.

The greatest writer of the Renaissance was William Shakespear. Shakespear never made much money and is famous only because of his plays. He lived in Windsor with his merry wives, writing tragedies, comedies and errors. In on of Shakespear's famous plays, Hamlet rations out his situation by relieving himself in a long soliloquy. In another, Lady Macbeth tries to convince Macbeth to kill the King by attacking his manhood. Romeo and Juliet are an example of a heroic couplet. Writing at the same time as Shakespear was Miquel Cervantes. He wrote "Donkey Hote". The next great author was John Milton. Milton wrote "Paradise Lost." Then his wife dies and he wrote "Paradise Regained."

During the Renaissance America began. Christopher Columbus was a great navigator who discovered America while cursing about the Atlantic. His ships were called the Nina, the Pinta, and the Santa Fe. Later the Pilgrims crossed the Ocean, and the was called the 6cPilgrim's Progress. When they landed at Plymouth Rock, they were greeted by Indians, who came down the hill rolling their was hoops before them. The Indian squabs carried porposies on their back. Many of the Indian heroes were killed, along with their cabooses, which proved very fatal to them. The winter of 1620 was a hard one for the settlers. Many people died and many babies were born. Captain John Smith was responsible for all this.

One of the causes of the Revolutionary Wars was the English put tacks in their tea. Also, the colonists would send their pacels through the post without stamps. During the War, Red Coats and Paul Revere was throwing balls over stone walls. The dogs were barking and the peacocks crowing. Finally, the colonists won the War and no longer had to pay for taxis.

Delegates from the original thirteen states formed the Contented Congress. Thomas Jefferson, a Virgin, and Benjamin Franklin were two singers of the Declaration of Independence. Franklin had gone to Boston carrying all his clothes in his pocket and a loaf of bread under each arm. He invented electricity by rubbing cats backwards and declared "a horse divided against itself cannot stand." Franklin died in 1790 and is still dead.

George Washington married Matha Curtis and in due time became the Father of Our Country. Them the Constitution of the United States was adopted to secure domestic hostility. Under the Constitution the people enjoyed the right to keep bare arms.

Abraham Lincoln became America's greatest Precedent. Lincoln's mother died in infancy, and he was born in a log cabin which he built with his own hands. When Lincoln was President, he wore only a tall silk hat. He said, "In onion there is strength." Abraham Lincoln write the Gettysburg address while traveling from Washington to Gettysburg on the back of an envelope. He also signed the Emasculation Proclamation, and the Fourteenth Amendment gave the ex-Negroes citizenship. But the Clue Clux Clan would torcher and lynch the ex-Negroes and other innocent victims. On the night of April 14, 1865, Lincoln went to the theater and got shot in his seat by one of the actors in a moving picture show. The believed assinator was John Wilkes Booth, a supposedly insane actor. This ruined Booth's career.

Meanwhile in Europe, the enlightenment was a reasonable time. Voltare invented electricity and also wrote a book called "Candy". Gravity was invented by Issac Walton. It is chiefly noticeable in the Autumn, when the apples are flaling off the trees.

Bach was the most famous composer in the world, and so was Handel. Handel was half German, half Italian and half English. He was very large. Bach died from 1750 to the present. Beethoven wrote music even though he was deaf. He was so deaf he wrote loud music. He took long walks in the forest even when everyone was calling for him. Beethoven expired in 1827 and later died for this.

France was in a very serious state. The French Revolution was accomplished before it happened. The Marseillaise was the theme song of the French Revolution, and it catapulted into Napoleon. During the Napoleonic Wars, the crowned heads of Europe were trembling in their shoes. Then the Spanish gorrilas came down from the hills and nipped at Napoleon's flanks. Napoleon became ill with bladder problems and was very tense and unrestrained. He wanted an heir to inheret his power, but since Josephine was a baroness, she couldn't bear him any children.

The sun never set on the British Empire because the British Empire is in the East and the sun sets in the West. Queen Victoria was the longest queen. She sat on a thorn for 63 years. He reclining years and finally the end of her life were exemplatory of a great personality. Her death was the final event which ended her reign.

The nineteenth century was a time of many great inventions and thoughts. The invention of the steamboat caused a network of rivers to spring up. Cyrus McCormick invented the McCormick Raper, which did the work of a hundred men. Samuel Morse invented a code for telepathy. Louis Pastuer discovered a cure for rabbis. Charles Darwin was a naturailst who wrote the "Organ of the Species". Madman Curie discovered radium. And Karl Marx became one of the Marx Brothers.

The First World War, cause by the assignation of the Arch-Duck by a surf, ushered in a new error in the anals of human history.

Why did Facebox become Netlog ?

FaceBox , a social networking site, suddenly changed to Netlog !!! Why ? Why did they have to rebrand their website ? Do they have superstitions about their name ?

Or do they have legal problems with their name resembling Facbook - another social networking site popular in the US, and now opened to the rest of the world ?

Tastes like Badam milk spirit !

The one on the left is probably adulterated. I got them from the same canteen, drank half of the one on the left before I realised it tasted bad, really bad. Yuck !!!!

First I thought maybe it was something I ate, then I went to the canteen counter and saw that this one was different. white coloured instead of the usual creamish.

That is Badam milk byt the way.

Are you infected or Not ? Most likely you are !!! (If you are a computer)

Are u infected ? No, not you. I'm talking to your computer.

Is your computer infected by viruses and trojans and worms and bacteria (oops, not bacteria)

COMPUTER VIRUS Are you as infected as the rest of us?

Ever wondered why your PC is getting so slow? Or how did those annoying popups get in your internet browser? Well… You probably have some kind of malware in your computer.

Do you want to know if your computer is infected? The extent of the infection and what type of infection it is(Adware, Trojans, Hacking Tools, Worms, Spyware)?

Luckily, there is this new website which allows you to scan your computer for virus.

They offer two free security tools: one they call Panda Nano Scan and another one called Panda Total Scan. The Nano Scan tool is designed to quickly diagnose your PC in about a minute. The Total Scan takes between 5 and 10 minutes. The main difference between these two tools is that the Total Scan (the one that takes a little bit more time) also checks for latent malware and not only active malware. This is useful information, since most of the computers are infected with latent malware. also displays statistic information about the level of infection in all the tested computers. And, of course, more than half the users had some kind of infection. It is really much more common than you think.

In short: you should really go to and check your computer with either the Nano Scan or the Total Scan tool. Chances are you are already infected. It can't hurt to know.

Check out this website and find out what it has to offer. And if you are infected, know that you are just one among the 70% of computers that are infected.

Go heal ! Heal yourself from viruses, worms and trojans and malware and spyware and bots and rootkits and ....(whew, the list is long huh ?)

PFW.exe in flash drive pfw.pif and autorun.inf - virus

PFW.pif was a hidden file I first saw in a pen drive (also variously called flash drive to thumb drive to thumbnail drive)

Anyway the hidden file is labelled as an MSDOS shortcut but it is a trojan or worm or virus or whatever.

How does PFW .pif spread ?
It has an autorun.inf file also in the root folder of the pen drive.

How do you remove it ...

If you have AVG free edition 7.5 installed and have the latest virus definitions, it is more than enough.

I'm not sure about Norton but if it is not updated, I guarantee that it will NOT catch this virus.

Manually remove the virus if you can !
Follow these steps
  1. Press Ctrl-Alt-Del . Task Manager opens. Choose Processes. Select PFW.exe . And click End Task
  2. Right click and Open Pen Drive (Autoplay will run the virus - Don't double click)
  3. Delete Pfw.pif and autorun.inf from the pen drive
  4. In My Computer, click Tools> Folder options> View - Show hidden and system files
  5. Delete C:\windows\system32\pfw.exe (it's a hidden file)
  6. Registry (Type regedit in Start >Run) Go to > HKCU>Sofrware>Microsoft>Windows>Current version>Explorer>Mountpoints2>(crazy names)
    1. Make backup of registry (right click Mount Points 2 and export file)
    2. Delete the names in mountpionts2 which are just a string of letters and numbers (not all of them are harmful, but this is easier) Don't delete C, D,E etc
    3. All finished. pfw.pif / pfw.exe is gone from your computer. Delete the virus from all the pen drives.
    4. Or to be careful , delete only the subkeys Shell which have Autoplay as default value (I'll explain this in detail later)

Friday 13th virus South African VirusB

File Infector
Discovery Date 11/01/1987
Length 512 Bytes


  • SouthAfrican
  • VirusB

Friday 13th is a file infecting virus. It does not become memory resident. This virus only infects .COM files. Although it does not infect COMMAND.COM.

Each time an infected file is executed, the virus looks for two other .COM files on the C: drive and one on the A: drive, if found they are infected.

The original Friday 13th COM virus first appeared in South Africa in 1987. Unlike the Jerusalem (Friday the 13th) viruses, it is not memory resident, nor does it hook any interrupts. This virus only infects .COM files, but not COMMAND.COM. On each execution of an infected file, the virus looks for two other .COM files on the C: drive and one on the A: drive, if found they are infected. This virus is extremely fast, and the only indication of propagation occurring is the access light being on for the A: drive, if the current default drive is C:. The virus will only infect a .COM file once. The files, after infection, must be less than 64K in length. On every Friday the 13th, if the host program is executed, it is deleted.


The only indication of propagation occurring is the access light being on for the A: drive, if the current default drive is C:. The files, after infection, must be less than 64K in length. Infected files increase in length by 512 bytes.

On every Friday the 13th, if the host file is executed, it is deleted.


The only way to infect a computer with a file infecting virus is to execute an infected file on the computer. The infected file may come from a multitude of sources including: floppy diskettes, downloads through an online service, network, etc. Once the infected file is executed, the virus may activate.

WordMacro/Friday Friday the 13th virus in Microsoft Word with password

NAME : Friday
ORIGIN: Germany

WordMacro/Friday consists of several macros, all of which start with the text 'NOP'. However, the virus is not related to the WordMacro/NOP virus.

On every Friday the 13th the virus renames IO.SYS to I_O.SYS, making the machine unbootable if the operating system is Windows 3.x or Windows 95. On Friday the 13th the virus also encrypts all saved files with the password "Friday13".

In addition, the virus exits Windows between 11:00 and 11:59 on Saturdays, encrypts documents with a password equal to the last three letters of the document name on Saturdays, protect the document with a password equal to the first 4 characters of the document name on Thursdays before 11 or on Wednesdays, exits Windows on Wednesdays after 23:00, etc.

WordMacro/Friday was reported to be in the wild in Germany in January 1997.

Friday 13th Virus

Friday 13th Virus

Beware Of The Friday 13th Virus
It will recalibrate your refrigerator's coolness setting so all your ice cream goes melty.

It will demagnetize the strips on all your credit cards, screw up the tracking on your television and use subspace field harmonics to scratch any CDs you try to play.

It will give your ex-girlfriend your new phone number.

It will mix Kool-aid into your fishtank.

It will drink all your beer and leave dirty socks on the coffee table when company comes over.

It will put a dead aardvark in the back pocket of your good suit pants and hide your car keys when you are late for work.

Friday 13th Virus will make you fall in love with a penguin.

It will give you nightmares about circus midgets.

It will pour sugar in your gas tank and shave off both your eyebrows while dating your girlfriend behind your back and billing the dinner and hotel room to your Discover card.

It moves your car randomly around parking lots so you can't find it.

It will leave libidinous messages on your boss's voice mail in your voice!

It is insidious and subtle. It is dangerous and terrifying to behold. It is also a rather interesting shade of mauve.

Friday 13th Virus will give you Dutch Elm disease.

It will leave the toilet seat up.

It will leave bacon cooking on the stove while it goes out to chase gradeschoolers with your new snowblower.

Friday 13th Virus will cause your cakes to fall and your blood pressure to rise.

It will increase the ability of your radio to pick up reactionary talk stations at the expense of others.

It prevents scurvy, but it gives you mega garlic breath as it does so, which makes the net results negative.

It cheats at Scrabble.

It can forge your signature.

It plays the bagpipes in your basement.

It shaves over your bathroom sink and then leaves the hair to clog your drain.

It does bad celebrity impersonations in front of your friends.

Couldn't resist this one ...

It's April after all ...

Easy Self Publishing My Own Book -

Had a book in you that wanted to come out ? Even got as far as typing it out, but didn't know how to get a publisher ? Not sure about how many copies to print ?

Well, the answer is right here - Self Publishing (doesn't sound very dramatic, I know - but it'll have to do till I get a better name)

Just go to and unleash the writer in you !
Just upload your manuscript to LuLu and let them handle the publishing part of it.

From what I understand, they don't mind if your book is difficult to sell - it can sell less or sell more.
But LuLu prints out copies and sends it to those who want to buy it.

No more worrying about how many copies to print - no more paying the publisher in advance ( LuLu takes a commission of 25% of your royalty charges ( and printing costs) )

The customers buy your books from LuLu - they pay LuLu.

And everyone is Happy !!!!

Blogger customize mode=layout problem

I'm having this irritating problem with the customize option in Blogger. Instead of going to the normal Template > Page Elements , it just goes to Layout mode (mode=layout)

It just goes to that page randomly. It doesn't affect all of blogger at the same time even. I even had Template > Page Elements working perfectly on one blog and

Now, this Layout mode (mode=layout) thing is really lame !!!
I can't change the layout. You (and I too) can't add more things to the layout. You can't even move the things around. The only thing you can do is edit the widgets which are already there.

This is the page it goes to : blog id)&mode=layout

When it should actually stay in this page : id)

If anyone knows why this is happening, or how to get back the original rearrange page, please let me know.

Until then , no more widgets ....

More on this later. ( Once I figure out how to solve this problem)

So, what did I do ?
I clicked template and before the page loaded fully, I clicked on Pick New Template.

There I picked a new template then picked my original template. I loast all my color customizatons and html modifications though ... And the elements got rearranged again ...

Now, the Page Elements tab work properly.

Do you know how the Easter bunny originated ? The sweet little wabbit who runs around on Easter delivering chocolate eggs ?

Well, I don't know yet - but I think I'll search the net and find out ...

Do you know that Easter is the day of resurrection of Lord Jesus Christ ? Well, that's more important to know.

Same thing with Christmas - all kids know Santa Claus (maybe even the name Saint Nicolas !) but many don't know about the birth of Jesus Christ.

Anyway - Happy Easter !

New Blogger layout problem

Sometimes, when I use the Template or layout option in the new blogger, it goes into a strange type of layout page - without all the links on top.

Can't see the blog title, nor the links to posting, settings, template, view blog. Also the Dashboard, help and sign out links.

Basically, it sucks out the top of the page like into a black hole...

And - it doesn't allow you to move the widgets around !

Can't create new widgets either . It's a very bad problem and it's been causing problems.

What's strange is that the problem comes and goes without warning. The same browser, same computer. One minute it's there, next minute it's still there, next hour it's still there, but then nex next hour - it's gone !

Poof ! Just like that. I don't like that.

If anyone figures out why this bug comes - do let me know.
It comes in Internet Explorer and Firefox as well ...

At the same time. Probably something wrong at Anyway , do tell me if anyone else hgets this problem

GMail Paper - happens only in India - not a joke ! ePost India

Did you think Google Gmail folled everyone with their Gmail paper hoax ?

Gmail Paper from Google ! Can't find it ? - Polar ...

Well, in India it's not much of a hoax really.

India Post's ePost system allows anyone with Internet access to send email to those without it and vice versa. The logistically ambitious project is emblematic of modern India: Though it's a global technology powerhouse, life for many of its people hasn't changed much in centuries. A quarter of Indians live below the poverty line, and only about 6% use the Internet.

Using ePost, anyone can send an email to a local post office, where it is printed and hand delivered. In reverse, rural patrons can handwrite letters and have them translated into emails. Delivery by ePost-gram costs less than 25 cents per page and usually takes a day, compared with about a week by snail mail. R.R.P. Singh, a general manager of marketing with India Post, says he has heard of expatriates using ePost to reach relatives back home who are off the grid. "You can talk about any technology you like--but somewhere the last mile has to be walked by somebody," Singh says.

Now India Post is aiming the service at corporate customers with bigger budgets, promoting ePost as a way to easily and affordably reach the unconnected masses. A recent upgrade to the technology, in fact, allows emailers to reach 9,999 addresses at once. That's right: Even villagers on the wrong side of the digital divide can enjoy the wonders of corporate spam.

Note: We take your privacy very seriously. So we treat all TiSP users' waste-related personal information with tremendous discretion, in accordance with our Privacy Policy.

Is this offering a tiered service? How does Google's position on Net Neutrality effect TiSP?
Although we understand that there's a lot of crap on the web, we also believe strongly in providing equal opportunity access to all our users. While we won't limit your surfing choices, we do offer three levels of TiSP service:

Trickle (Free)
The #2 Royal Flush

Is Google TiSP safe and reliable?
Google TiSP ensures reliable throughput through the power of fiber, which has been proven through extensive research to effectively facilitate consistent data flow with minimal latency. And you can rest assured that under no circumstances will the TiSP system ever expose your privates.

What are the system requirements?

  • Windows XP/Vista (Mac and Linux support coming soon)

  • Internet Explorer 6.0+ or Firefox 1.5+ with the Google Toolbar

  • Round-front or elongated toilet providing at least 1.0 gallons per flush

  • Use of automatic toilet bowl cleaners is not recommended

Does my water company support TiSP?
TiSP was developed with the support and assistance of a large number of major metropolitan water companies. A full list of companies that support TiSP is available here. If yours isn't listed, please contact them to verify their ongoing and unstinting support before you even think about signing up for TiSP service.

Can I use TiSP if my home uses a septic system?
Sorry, but no -- TiSP requires the use of a central sewer system to connect your home to the Internet.

Can I still use my toilet after installing TiSP?
Do we look stupid? Needless to say, the fiber optic cable that enables TiSP will not interfere with your toilet's regular operations. For your own convenience, however, you may eventually wish to hire a professional contractor to help route the cable under, or through, the toilet seat to your TiSP wireless router.

In what countries is this service available?
TiSP is available today in the U.S. and Canada. Google has formed an international consortium of utility companies, sewage system experts, toilet manufacturers, and plumbers to develop solutions to the many problems facing all "dark porcelain"-based data-delivery innovators.

Can I use this service when I'm away from home?
Sorry, but no -- TiSP is not available outside the home at this time. We are, however, currently developing a mobile feature called TiSP on the Run (TiSPOTR), which we expect to make available in the near future.

I'm having trouble installing or using TiSP.
Your internet connection should be working within one hour of GFlushing the sinker. If you still aren't online after that period of time, your toilet may be clogged. Please flush three more times, then check your online connection again. If you're still experiencing problems, drop eight mints into the bowl and add a two-liter bottle of diet soda. For further assistance, please visit the TiSP Help Group.

Does my net access have to be wireless?
Not necessarily, but our user studies have found that without wireless connectivity, there was considerable "commode congestion" in an average 2.5-person household whose one bathroom typically can provide a comfortable workspace for just one user at a time. We therefore strongly recommend using the wireless connection to alleviate potential multi-user congestion and encourage widespread "couch computing."

Why is TiSP in beta?
When things go wrong with TiSP, they go very, very wrong. Let's leave it at that.

You might have typed the URL incorrectly, for instance. Or (less likely but certainly plausible) we might have coded the URL incorrectly. Or (far less plausible, but theoretically possible, depending on which ill-defined Grand Unifying Theory of physics one subscribes to), some random fluctuation in the space-time continuum might have produced a shatteringly brief but nonetheless real electromagnetic discombobulation which caused this error page to appear. Or (and truth be told, this is by far the most likely scenario) you might have reached a page that we meant to create but didn't get around to it, since this year's April Fool's joke got hacked together at the last minute, more or less the same way this one did.

Gmail Paper from Google ! Can't find it ? - Polar Foil !

Google Paper - Now get printed copies

of your email - free ! Hurry !

Don't like email ? Want to use snail mail with the power of email. Don't worry - Google has just the solution for you ! Get printed copies of your emails with even glossy photo printouts of your picture attachments !

Is it free?

Yes. The cost of postage is offset with the help of relevant, targeted, unobtrusive advertisements, which will appear on the back of your Gmail Paper prints in red, bold, 36 pt Helvetica. No pop-ups, no flashy animations—these are physically impossible in the paper medium.

How about attachments?

All part of the deal. Photo attachments are printed on high-quality, glossy photo paper, and secured to your Gmail Paper with a paper clip. MP3 and WAV files will not be printed. We recommend maintaining copies of your non-paper Gmail in these cases.

Is there a limit?

You can make us print one, one thousand, or one hundred thousand of your emails. It’s whatever seems reasonable to you.

But what about the environment?

Not a problem. Gmail Paper is made out of 96% post-consumer organic soybean sputum, and thus, actually helps the environment. For every Gmail Paper we produce, the environment gets incrementally healthier.

Beta User Testimonials

Anna-Christina D., Lifecoach
