TAKE 1000 AND ADD 40 TO IT. NOW ADD ANOTHER 1000 NOW ADD 30.
ADD ANOTHER 1000. NOW ADD 20 … NOW ADD ANOTHER 1000.
NOW ADD 10. WHAT IS THE TOTAL?

SCROLL DOWN FOR THE CORRECT ANSWER…..

IF YOU DON’T BELIEVE IT, CHECK IT WITH A CALCULATOR!
TODAY IS DEFINITELY NOT YOUR DAY, IS IT?

HER NAME IS MARY! READ THE QUESTION AGAIN!

———————————————————

OKAY, NOW THE BONUS ROUND,
I.E., A FINAL CHANCE TO
REDEEM YOURSELF:

A MUTE PERSON GOES INTO A SHOP AND WANTS TO BUY A TOOTHBRUSH.
BY IMITATING THE ACTION OF BRUSHING HIS TEETH HE
SUCCESSFULLY EXPRESSES HIMSELF TO THE SHOPKEEPER AND THE PURCHASE IS DONE.
NEXT, A BLIND MAN COMES INTO THE SHOP WHO WANTS TO BUY A
PAIR OF SUNGLASSES; HOW DOES HE INDICATE WHAT HE WANTS?

IT’S REALLY VERY SIMPLE
HE OPENS HIS MOUTH AND ASKS FOR IT…
DOES YOUR EMPLOYER ACTUALLY PAY YOU TO THINK??
IF SO DO NOT LET THEM SEE YOUR ANSWERS FOR THIS TEST!
PASS THIS ON TO FRUSTRATE THE
SMART PEOPLE IN YOUR LIFE!
HAVE A NICE DAY, ONE AND ALL.

With A Heavy Heart. Love And Listen To Your Children. Tears…..

Suicide is not painless!

Why do people commit suicide? I do not know. Only God , and the person pulling the trigger knows I guess. I’ve often wondered how much despair it would take to actually go thru with it.

Sunday night at around 8 PM a young man/boy named Ryder (17)  who lives about 10 house from me reached that point. Put a rifle to his head and well….

My son has known him for 12 yrs. Ryder is 2 yrs older so the last few yrs they really did not hang out much.

Kid seemed nice. Good at sports at H.S. (same school as my son) Lot’s of friends.

Drive by his house and there is a mountain of flowers. Guess the kids from school needed somewhere for there grief. Very sad to look at.

Sit and listen to your children. Love them unconditionally. Let them know that no matter what they can come and talk to you.

I think my son knows this. I pray he does. Yet I find myself terrified today.

————————————————————————————–

Please say a prayer for Ryder and his family. I do not know how you recover from that. I know the Family of Nick who chocked are still dealing with it.

PS, I’ve come to find out more to the story. Don’t know why, but as I drive by the flowers now it seems different.

It seems this was a case of Teen Domestic abuse. Young Ryder apparently went to his girlfriends house and beat the shit out of her. At least broke her nose. Some say she is hospitalized. Then he took a shot at her, thank God he missed.

He then returned home and ended his own life.

This poor girl will have to live with this the rest of her life.

Please say a prayer for her.

I just don’t know what to make of the whole thing anymore. Just damn tragic.

Please say a prayer for all involved.

Thank you for letting me get this off my chest.

25 Older Adult Truths

1. Sometimes I’ll look down at my watch 3 consecutive times and still not know what time it is.
2. Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you’re wrong.
3. I totally take back all those times I didn’t want to nap when I was younger.
4. There is great need for a sarcasm font.

5. How the heck are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?
6. Was learning cursive really necessary?
7. Map Quest really needs to start their directions on #5. I’m pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.
8. Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the person died.
9. I can’t remember the last time I wasn’t at least kind-of tired.
10. Bad decisions make good stories.
11. You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment when you know that you just aren’t going to do anything productive for the rest of the day.
12. Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after Blu-ray? I don’t want to have to restart my collection…again
13. I’m always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my ten-page technical report that I swear I did not make any changes to.

14. I keep some people’s phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call.
15. I think the freezer deserves a light as well.
16. I disagree with Kay Jewelers. I would bet on any given Friday or Saturday more kisses begin with Miller Light than Kay.
17. I wish Google Maps had an “Avoid Ghetto” routing option.
18. I have a hard time deciphering the fine line between boredom and hunger.
19. How many times is it appropriate to say “What?” before you just nod and smile because you still didn’t hear or understand a word they said?
20. I love the sense of camaraderie when an entire line of cars team up to prevent a jerk from cutting in at the front. Stay strong, brothers and sisters!
21. Shirts get dirty. Underwear gets dirty. Pants? Pants never get dirty, and you can wear them forever.
22. Even under ideal conditions people have trouble locating their car keys in a pocket, finding their cell phone, and Pinning the Tail on the Donkey – but I’d bet everyone can find and push the snooze button from 3 feet away, in about 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time, every time.
23. As soon as you find something at the grocery store that you really like, they will either move it or the company will discontinue it.
24. The driving of all the other people on the road has become markedly worse in the past few years.
25. The first testicular guard, the “Cup,” was used in Hockey in 1874 and the first helmet was used in 1974. That means it only took 100 years for men to realize that their brain is also important.
Life just gets better as you get older, doesn’t it?
And lastly:
I was in a Starbucks recently when my stomach started rumbling and I realized that I desperately needed to fart. The place was packed but the music was really loud so to get relief and reduce embarrassment I timed my farts to the beat of the music. After a couple of songs I started to feel much better. I finished my coffee and noticed that everyone was staring at me.
I suddenly remembered that I was listening to my iPod with headphones…. and how was your day???
This is what happens when old people start using technology!!!
