On a crowded bus, one man saw that another man had his eyes closed.
“What’s the matter? Are you sick?” he asked.
“No, I’m okay. It’s just that I hate to see old ladies standing.”
crowded – (ხალხით) გადაჭედილი
“What’s the matter”? – რა მოხდა

NASA and Russians
When NASA started sending up astronauts, they quickly discovered that ballpoint pens would not work at zero gravity.
To solve the problem, NASA spent a decade and $12 billion developing a pen that wrote at zero gravity, upside down, underwater, on almost any surface including glass and at temperatures ranging from below freezing to 300C. The Russians used a pencil.
ballpoint pens – ბურთულიანი კალმები
zero gravity – ნულოვანი მიზიდულობა
a decade – დეკადა, ათი წელი
upside down – ქვემოდან ზემოთ
underwater – წყლის ქვეშ
