I showed these pictures to my wife who is a lifelong Buddhist… The shock and revulsion on her face said it all. Picture your parish priest or your local pastor or your imam or your rabbi or whatever you call your local religious ecclesiastic doing the same. Well… Maybe your pastor or rabbi might get away with the consorting with women part… And a priest might try a bit of naughtiness with a choirboy or two… But the guns?!? Even your most rabid Islamo radical taliban clerics are a bit shy when it comes to posing with this kind of hardware… Try finding a pic of any ayatollah where he’s packing heat.
Buddhist monks are sworn to a life of celibacy, poverty and non-violence… These monks are from China where the government has a big say on who can and cannot become a monk. In fact… The Chinese government is embarking on a plan to influence the succession of the Dalai Lama by appointment rather than by the centuries old method of reincarnation… This has prompted the current Dalai Lama to consider naming his successor before he dies in order to sidestep interference from the Chinese government.
I googled “Priests with Guns” and these are the only images available…
Apparently it’s unfathomable outside of fantasy for western “Men of God” to tote assault weapons. And while I’m sure there’s a rabbi or two walking around in Israel toting an Uzi due to the laws regarding military service… You sure won’t find any pictures anywhere.
Although on a lighter note… this one was an interesting take:
Back to the point though… I wonder where the world is headed if the people that are traditionally among the gentlest and most respectful of life are taking assault weapon training.
Whenever your children are out of control, you can take comfort from the thought that even God’s omnipotence did not extend to His own children.
After creating heaven and earth, God created Adam and Eve.
And the first thing he said was… “DON’T! “
“Don’t what? ” Adam replied.
“Don’t eat the forbidden fruit.” God said.
“Forbidden fruit? We have forbidden fruit? Hey Eve…we have forbidden fruit! ”
No Way! “… “Yes way! ”
“Do NOT eat the fruit! “ said God.
“Why ? ”
“Because I am your Father and I said so! “ God replied, wondering why He hadn’t stopped creation after making the elephants.
A few minutes later, God saw His children having an apple break and He was ticked!
“Didn’t I tell you not to eat the fruit? “ God asked.
“Uh huh,” Adam replied.
“Then why did you? “ said the Father.
“I don’t know,” said Eve.
“She started it! ” Adam said.
“Did not! ” “Did too! ” “DID NOT! ”
Having had it with the two of them, God’s punishment was that Adam and Eve should have children of their own.
Thus the pattern was set and it has never changed.
BUT… THERE IS REASSURANCE IN THE STORY!
If you have persistently and lovingly tried to give children wisdom and they haven’t taken it, don’t be hard on yourself.
If God had trouble raising children, what makes you think it would be a piece of cake for you?
THINGS TO THINK ABOUT !
1. You spend the first two years of their life teaching them to walk and talk. Then you spend the next sixteen telling them to sit down and shut up.
2. Grandchildren are God’s reward for not killing your own children.
3. Mothers of teens know why some animals eat their young.
4. Children seldom misquote you... In fact, they usually repeat word for word what you shouldn’t have said.
5. The main purpose of holding children’s parties is to remind yourself that there are children more awful than your own.
6. We childproofed our homes, but they’re still getting in.
ADVICE FOR THE DAY:
Be nice to your kids.
They will choose your
nursing home one day.
IF YOU ! HAVE A LOT OF TENSION
AND YOU GET A HEADACHE, DO WHAT IT SAYS ON THE ASPIRIN BOTTLE:
“TAKE TWO ASPIRIN” AND “KEEP AWAY FROM CHILDREN”!!!!!

|15 cool word illusions|
Say aloud the ink color of each word. How quickly can you do it? Did you slow down?
The next one is a really cool wedding card. When the card is closed, you’ll see the name of the bride. When opened, the name of the groom will appear. Can you discover the names of the newly weds?
This one is pretty strange. Just look at the words below. Doesn’t make any sense, does it? Now sit back and try to read the text. The text will explain itself.
What do you read here? Most people will read evil, but some will see the good in life at the first time.
Somewhat simular to the previous illusion. When you don’t see the womans reflection in the mirror, you’ll read hate. But when you see her reflection, you’ll see her true self.
Did you read I love Paris in the springtime? If so, you’re wrong. Look again and check what is really spelled.
JACK (age 3) was watching his Mom breast-feeding his new baby sister. After a while he asked: “Mom why have you got two? Is one for hot and one for cold milk?”
MELANIE (age 5) asked her Granny how old she was. Granny replied she was so old she didn’t remember any more. Melanie said, “If you don’t remember you must look in the back of your panties. Mine say five to six”
STEVEN (age 3) hugged and kissed his Mom good night. “I love you so much that when you die I’m going to bury you outside my bedroom window.”
BRITTANY (age 4) had an earache and wanted a pain killer. She tried in vain to take the lid off the bottle. Seeing her frustration, her Mom explained it was a child-proof cap and she’d have to open it for her. Eyes wide with wonder, the little girl asked: “How does it know it’s me?”
DJ (age 4) stepped onto the bathroom scale and asked: “How much do I cost?”
MARC (age 4) was engrossed in a young couple that were hugging and kissing in a restaurant. Without taking his eyes off them, he asked his dad: “Why is he whispering in her mouth?”
JAMES(age 4) was listening to a Bible story. His dad read :
“The man named Lot was warned to take his wife and flee out of the city but his wife looked back and was turned to salt.” Concerned, James asked: “What happened to the flea?”
TAMMY(age 4) was with her mother when they met an elderly, rather wrinkled woman her Mom knew. Tammy looked at her for a while and then asked, “Why doesn’t your skin fit your face?”
The Sermon I think this Mom will never forget…. this particular Sunday sermon…”Dear Lord,” the minister began, with arms extended toward heaven and a rapturous look on his upturned face. “Without you, we are but dust…”
He would have continued but at that moment my very obedient daughter who was listening leaned over to me and asked quite audibly in her shrill little four year old girl voice, “Mom, what is butt dust?
This series of pictures shows how Mother Nature can take back her own.
THESE ARE ABSOLUTELY NOT TOYS AND CAN BE VERY DANGEROUS! KEEP AWAY FROM CHILDREN!
THESE MAGNETS CAN EASILY CRUSH FINGERS!
WE WILL NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR INJURY OR DAMAGE CAUSED BY THESE POWERFUL MAGNETS.
THESE MAGNETS ARE SOLD TO ADULTS ONLY AND REQUIRE
AN ADULT SIGNATURE UPON DELIVERY.
If carrying one into another room, carefully plan the route you will be taking. Sensitive instruments like computers & monitors will be affected in an entire room. Loose metallic objects and other magnets may become airborne and fly considerable distances
- and at great speed – to attach themselves to this magnet.
If you get caught in between the two, you can get injured.
Two of these magnets close together can create an almost unbelievable magnetic field that can be very dangerous. Of all the unique items we offer for sale, we consider these items the most dangerous of all. Our normal packing & shipping personnel refuse to package these magnets – our engineers have to do it. This is no joke, and we cannot stress it strongly enough – that you must be extremely careful – and know what you’re doing with these magnets.
Two Super magnets can very easily get out of control and break fingers and even your arm if opposing poles fly at each other.
A small child recently lost his hand when his father left two # 31 supermagnets unattended. The child picked one up and when he approached the other magnet on a nearby table,
it became airborne and obliterated his small hand.
Perceptive Pixel is a startup founded by Jeff Han. Working all but alone from his hardware-strewn office, Jeff Han is about to change the face of computing. Not even the big boys are likely to catch him. Jeff Han and Phil Davidson shows how a multi-touch computer screen will change the way we work (and play).
What if we changed the game completely? Instead of a single bounty on their heads, we offer the 3 million people of the region 3 years of income (i.e., $2400/person) or $7.2B, about 2-3 weeks of operations in Iraq. Large families of 20 people, therefore, would wind up with $48,000, a huge sum in Pakistan. Means for distributing the money would have to be established, and systems to prevent a flood on the market would need to be considered. Aggregating the sums further on a village level would provide the people opportunities to improve the material parts of their lives substantially.
In order to ensure the military was on the same page, we could offer $5000 per soldier, costing us another $5B, so the total cost of this program would be about a month’s worth of Iraq spending. READ MORE
Word of a troubling experience that confirms what we’ve always suspected: If you want to get away with sh*tfaced driving in Cleveland, wear your hot-chick disguise.
When the lady pulled up to Wendy’s, near her home in Euclid, the drive-thru employee looked at her incredulously. “Who is this retardedly drunk chick trying to order a Baconator from the drive-thru?” our reader guesses the employee was thinking.
Having studied the “Retardedly Drunk Customers” section of the Wendy’s employee handbook, the drive-thru girl knew just how to handle this situation. She handed over the Baconator, then called the cops as our drunk reader careened away.
