What are the oldest jokes in history?

Jokes in ancient times?
A UK TV station, called Dave (odd name for TV station) has come up with a list of the worlds ten oldest jokes:
Dave: Quite Interesting Facts: World’s ten oldest jokes
Two of my favorties are numbers nine and ten:
9. Wishing to teach his donkey not to eat, a pedant did not offer him any food. When the donkey died of hunger, he said “I’ve had a great loss. Just when he had learned not to eat, he died.” (Dated to the Philogelos 4th /5th Century AD)
10. Asked by the court barber how he wanted his hair cut, the king replied: “In silence.” (Collected in the Philogelos or “Laughter-Lover” the oldest extant jest book and compiled in the 4th/5th Century AD)

Biocommunication: faster than light?

The amazing pioneering work of Cleve Backster made ‘famous’ in Secret Life of Plants is celebrated via a
review of his book Primary Perception: Biocommunication with Plants, Living Foods, and Human Cells.
Cleve Backster noticed that a polygraph which he attached to plant seemed to be responding to what he was feeling.
“…this realization forever changed the life of the FBI and CIA’s foremost polygraph researcher, and reintroduced modern science to the sentient nature of our universe. On that date the brilliant and disciplined mind of Cleve Backster conceived an irrefutable paradigm-busting scientific protocol. With straightforward electronics that a student or garage-level scientist can replicate, he proved to humans that their thoughts and emotions affect the behavior of their own and other living cells.”.
However, what is not made so clear in the early elaborations of Cleve Backsters work is that biocomunication is intanteneous. Biocomunication is not limited by the speed of light. The implications of this are immense in what it opens up in terms of potential escape from the limitations of light speed and of an existence beyond the 3rd dimensional world which we seem to inhabit.

Wind power tanker ship: MS Beluga maiden voyage ‘positive’ results

Container ships may not be one of the world’s worst polluters much longer if a German companies success in helping them become wind-powered is implemented more widely.

Skysails, a German company, reckon that even their early effort of fitting a Kite (or rather a computer controlled paraglyder) to MS Beluga will cut fuel bills by £800 ($1,560) a day.
“We can demonstrate that you can combine economy and ecology,” Verena Frank of Beluga Shipping explains.
“Economy, because you can reduce fuel consumption and fuel costs, and on the ecological side of things, we reduce emissions.”
“The kite is controlled by computers. One computer helps it to fly in figures of eight in the sky – maximising the power it produces. Another computer adjusts the kite’s direction.”

“If the project is successful, expect to see even bigger kites soon – some up to 5,000sq m (53,820sq ft) in size pulling ships across the seas and oceans. ”

The ship owner Beluga Group reports ‘positive findings’ at the end of the maiden voyage.
“We can once again actually sail with cargo ships, thus opening a new chapter in the history of commercial shipping”, said Lutz Heldt, master of MV “Beluga SkySails”, drawing up the balance sheet of the nearly two month long maiden voyage. “Due to the innovative SkySails-system we use on our multipurpose heavy lift project carrier newbuilding we can cut down the voyage costs and simultaneously reduce the climate-damaging emissions”, Niels Stolberg, CEO of Beluga Shipping GmbH, specified the positive double effect.
“A drop in bunker costs of approximately 2,000 US-Dollars per operating day becomes realistic, when the towing kite will be scaled up to 320 square meters in size subsequent to the pilot phase.”
