Two statisticians were traveling in an airplane from LA to New York. About an hour into the flight, the pilot announced that they had lost an engine, but don’t worry, there are three left. However, instead of 5 hours it would take 7 hours to get to New York.
A little later, he announced that a second engine failed, and they still had two left, but it would take 10 hours to get to New York.
Somewhat later, the pilot again came on the intercom and announced that a third engine had died. Never fear, he announced, because the plane could fly on a single engine. However, it would now take 18 hours to get to New York.
At this point, one statistician turned to the other and said, “Gee, I hope we don’t lose that last engine, or we’ll be up here forever!”

Check out this house. It belongs to the estate of a 94-year-old woman who died 2 years ago, after living alone in this house. Closets? You'll love it!

Random music comments: Listening to a cover of the Beatles "Getting Better" - I never realized that's a fairly dark song; driving around I heard a extended version of the The Specials "Much too Young" - never knew that existed.
