I only know one joke, and it's about New Jersey. But I can't tell it here.

Or a Victorian joke

Also, nice post Hadjiboy.

Make me World Emperor, oh people of the Earth, and I will cause to be built the finest water-garden palace in the history of humanity. I will draw up in the landscape a botanical-architectural marvel that will last a thousand more years and inspire countless generations.
Sure, it'll be built with your blood and sweat, and my high ideals—but you and I both know that's a worthwhile compromise.


good post hadjiboy

The Shalimar gardens like so much architecture from this period commissioned by the Emperor Shah Jahan. Nice post.

finest water-garden palace

I dream of something greater than that. I dream of building the world's first AI as a huge water-clock with logic gates and registers in water thinking achingly slowly.

On Mars.

Oh yes.
