Two UNC* grads were working on a house. The one who was nailing down siding, would reach into his nail pouch, pull out a nail and either toss it over his shoulder or nail it in.
The other grad, figuring this was worth looking into, asked, "Why are you throwing those nails away?"
The first explained, "If I pull a nail out of my pouch and it's pointed toward me I throw it away because it's defective. If it's pointed toward the house I nail it in!"
The second got completely upset and yelled, "You moron! The nails pointed toward you aren't defective! They're for the other side of the house!"

[TBC: We have noted in the past how for the sake of Western Media, the PLO has put forth the message that they are finally going to recognize the right of Israel to exist. The message in Arabic is not the same. Here is another example:]
Video Catches Abbas Contradicting Commitment to Rice [Excerpts]
PLO chairman Mahmoud Abbas was reported to have told US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice last week that his group would recognize Israel. In Arabic, however, Abbas broadcast a different message. On the eve of his meeting with Rice, Abbas told Al-Arabiya satellite TV that although a Palestinian Authority government would have to accept the existence of the Israeli government for purposes of receiving funds and other logistical coordination, neither Hamas nor his own Fatah group were required to recognize the legitimacy or right to existence of the Jewish State.
The following is the text of the clip from Al-Arabiya [Dubai] and Palestinian TV, aired October 3, 2006:
Host: "But maybe Hamas is right that it does not want to recognize Israel."
Abbas: "Hamas is not required, Hamas is not required to recognize Israel... It is not required of Hamas, nor of Fatah, nor of the Popular Front to recognize Israel. Okay?"
"The PLO, in 1993, recognized Israel as Israel recognized the PLO. Every person has the right to say 'I do not recognize.' Okay? It's your right. It is the right of every organization. But the government which will be formed, and which will function opposite the Israelis on a daily basis... [every hour and perhaps every second, there will be contact between Palestinian ministers and Israeli ministers. And I ask] how can this government, or these ministers, not recognize their counterparts, and then solve people's problems?" [Abbas then gives an example of 500 million dollars in taxes intended for the Palestinians, but put on hold by Israelis]. "The Palestinian finance minister has to come to an agreement with the Israeli finance minister about the transfer of the money. So how can he make an agreement with him if he does not recognize him?
"So I do not demand of Hamas nor any other to recognize Israel. But from the government that works with Israelis in day to day life, yes."
