Proud Dads

Two Arabs are sitting in a Gaza bar chatting over a pint of fermented goats milk.

One pulls out his wallet and starts flipping
through pictures, and they start reminiscing.

This is my oldest son, Mohammed..... he's a
martyr. This is my second son, Hachmed.
He is a martyr also.

After a pause and a deep sigh, the second
Arab says wistfully, "They blow up so fast,
don't they?"

Let's not degrade a person's passion no matter how misguided.

Damn I can't believe I typed my way through that.

Seriously,most people weren't raised like we were, they have a completely different value system.

Pride of GWB

Painful lost for families and friends. Willfully accepting?

Patience and tolerance to care for the mentally and physically handicapped by their own families? by Veterans Hospital?

How much and what quality of life is in store for them?

Pride it is...for death and disability that is unnecessary.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
