    because by then, your body and your fat are really
    good friends.

    than to fix the problem.
    3 A penny saved is an oversight.

    5 The first 90% of the task takes 10% of the time;
    the last 10% takes the other 90%.

    7 For any given large, complex, hard to understand,
    expensive problem, there exists at least one short,
    simple, easy, cheap, wrong answer.
    8 Anything that can be changed will be,
    until time runs out.
    9 To err is human;
    to shrug is civil service.
   10 There's never enough time to do it right, but
    there's always enough time to do it over.

  It's the only type of cooking a "real" man will do. When a man volunteers to do such cooking, the following chain of events is put into motion.

1. The woman goes to the store.

3. The woman prepares the meat for cooking, places it on a tray along with the necessary

cooking utensils, and takes it to the man, who is lounging beside the grill, drinking a beer.

4. The man places the meat on the grill.


5. The woman goes inside to set the table and check the vegetables.


6. The woman comes out to tell the man that the meat is burning.

7. The man takes the meat off the grill and hands it to the woman.


8. The woman prepares the plates and brings them to the table.

9. After eating, the woman clears the table and does the dishes.

10. The man asks the woman how she enjoyed "her night off", and upon seeing her annoyed reaction concludes that there's just no pleasing some women.

               "Hey, if you run, you'll only go to jail tired."

              "In God we trust, all others are suspects."

               "Life's tough... it's tougher if you're stupid."

She said  

   Q: How are men's brains are like the prison system?
   A: Same problem - not enough cells!
   Most men are the same, they just have different
    faces so you can tell them apart.
   Whenever you meet a man who would make a good husband,
    you will usually find that he is.
   Actually women don't make fools of men, most guys...
    They're the do-it-yourself types.
   Ladies - go for younger men! You might as
    well, they never mature anyway.
   Q: How are men are like animals?
   A: They're messy, insensitive and potentially violent...
    but they make great pets!
   There are a lot of words you can use to describe men.
    Strong, caring, loving, sensitive, gentle, considerate...
    They'd be inaccurate, but you could still use them!
   If you want a nice man, go for a bald one. They try harder!
   Never, never, never trust a man who says he's the boss at home.
    No doubt he lies about other things, too.

If we could shrink the earth's population to a village of precisely 100 people, with all the

existing human ratios remaining the same, it would look something like the following:


There would be:


57 Asians


21 Europeans


14 from the Western Hemisphere, both north and south


8 Africans


52 would be female


48 would be male


70 would be non-white


30 would be white


70 would be non-Christian


30 would be Christian


89 would be heterosexual


11 would be homosexual


6 people would possess 59% of the entire world's wealth and all 6 would be from the United



80 would live in substandard housing


70 would be unable to read


50 would suffer from malnutrition


1 would be near death; 1 would be near birth


1 (yes, only 1) would have a college education


1 would own a computer


When one considers our world from such a compressed perspective,  the need for acceptance,

understanding and education becomes glaringly apparent.  

The following is also something to ponder. . .  

If you woke up this morning with more health than illness. . . you are more blessed than themillion who will not survive this week.  

If you have never experienced the danger of battle, the loneliness of imprisonment, the agony of torture, or the pangs of starvation. . . you are ahead of 500 million people in the world.  

If you can attend a church meeting without fear of harassment, arrest,  torture, or death. . .  you are more blessed than three billion people in the world.  

If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof overhead and a place to sleep. . . you are richer than 75% of this world.  

If you have money in the bank, in your wallet, and spare change in a dish someplace . . . you are among the top 8% of the world's wealthy.  

If your parents are still alive and still married. . . you are very rare,  even in the United States and Canada.  

If you can read this message, you just received a double blessing in that someone was thinking of you, and furthermore, you are more blessed than over two billion people in the world that cannot read at all.  

Someone once said:  

What goes around comes around.

Work like you don't need the money.

Love like you've never been hurt.

Dance like nobody's watching.

Sing like nobody's listening.

Live like it's Heaven on Earth.


Pass this on, and brighten someone's day.  

Nothing will happen if you do not decide to pass it along.  

The only thing that will happen, if you DO pass it on, is that someone might smile because of  you.
