Lightbulb Points to ponder

* A bus station is where a bus stops. A train station is where train stops. On my desk, I have a work station...

* If quitters never win, and winners never quit, what fool came up with "quit while you're ahead"?

* I was thinking about how people seem to read the Bible whole lot more as they get older, then it dawned on me. they were studying for their finals.

* I thought about how mothers feed their babies with little tiny spoons and forks, so I wonder what Chinese mothers use...Toothpicks?

* Why do they put pictures of criminals up in the Post Office? What are we supposed to do...write to these men? Why don't they just put their pictures on the postage stamps so the posties could look for them while they delivered the mail?

* How much deeper would oceans be if sponges didn't live there?

* If it's true that we are here to help others, then what exactly are the OTHERS here for?

* Go ahead and take risks....just be sure that everything will turn out OK.

* If you can't be kind, at least have the decency to be vague.

* Ever wonder what the speed of lightning would be if it didn't zigzag?

* Nostalgia isn't what it used to be.

* How come you don't ever hear about gruntled employees? And who has been dissing them anyhow?

* Since light travels faster than sound, isn't that why people appear bright until you hear them speak?

* How come "abbreviated" is such a long word?

* If it's zero degrees outside today and it's supposed to be twice as cold tomorrow, how cold is it going to be?

LOL Heres some help for You.........
1. Last one is 0.
2. Light Speed is just that.
3. Since we have two ears and one mouth, This must mean we need to Listen twice as much as we speak.
4. Most Kids have a " Play Station, and to have twice as much fun they have a Play Station 2 ".
5. As we get older we also must get smarter and read the important things " The Bible".
6. I guess it goes hand in hand with the longer you go the farther you get behind .

And you thought I was going to give you all the answers ..........
Cora you are just to funny !!!!!!!!!!

If you need a smile, take mine, I'll make a new one.

Hee hee, this makes me wonder...

1. Why do we have commercials like "Illiterate? dial 1-800-ABC-DEFG"? (As if I could dial letters with a PHD.)
2. And who's big idea was it to put the first three letters on the number 2??
3. Why is Illiterate so hard to spell?
4. Why do Liquour Stores have a "Drive-through" window?
5. For that matter why are they called "Drive Through" Window's? And why are we so surprised when someone does?
6. Why do we drive on a parkway and park on a driveway?
7. Why is Cargo sent by Ship, while a Shipment is sent by car?
8. Why is the word small bigger than the word big?
9. Is the word Anachronism outdated?
10. If Soybean Oil comes from Soybeans, where do they get Baby Oil?
