Ponder these!

How important does a person have to be before they are considered assassinated instead of just murdered?

If money doesn't grow on trees, why do banks have branches?

Since bread is square, then why is sandwich meat round?

Why does pizza come in a square box?

What disease did cured ham have anyway?

How is it that we put man on the moon, before we figured out that luggage needed wheels?

Why is it that people say they "slept like a baby" when babies wake up every two hours?

If a deaf person has to go to court, it is still called a hearing?

Why are you IN a movie, but you're ON TV.?

Do illiterate people get the full effect of Alphabet soup?

Why do toasters always have a setting that burns the toast to a horrible crisp which no decent human being would eat?

Why is there a light in the refrigerator, and not in the freezer?

If Jimmy cracks corn, and no one cares, why is there a stupid song about him?

If the professor on Gilligan's Island can make a radio out of a coconut, how come he can't fix a hole in a boat?

If corn oil is made from corn, and vegetable oil from vegetables, what is baby oil made of???

If electricity comes from electrons, does morality come from morons?

Clothing in heaven....a theory...all about Eden
by Steven Haninger / February 18, 2005 9:50 AM PST

The story goes that, when Adam and Eve were cast out of Eden, they noticed they were "neked" and covered up in shame. Eden was about as close to heaven as it got at that time. It was sin that brought this upon them but God promised a way to find forgiveness. So, maybe if we are all good little girls and boys (can you see where this is going? :)), God will forgive us and heaven will be a lot like Eden and we all get to be "neked" again so I wouldn't sweat the wardrobe thing.;)

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?
