Friend sent this to me. I liked it. :)

2 really hard questions.

Question 1:

If you knew a woman who was pregnant, who had 8 kids already, three who
were deaf, two who were blind, one mentally retarded, and she had
syphilis, would you recommend that she have an abortion?

Read the next question before looking at the response for this one.

Question 2:
It is time to elect a new world leader, and only your vote counts.
Here are the facts about the three candidates. Who would you vote for?

Candidate A.

Associates with crooked politicians, and consults with astrologist
He's had two mistresses.
He also chain smokes and drinks 8 to 10 martinis a day.

Candidate B.

He was kicked out of office twice, sleeps until noon, used opium in
college and drinks a quart of whiskey every evening.

Candidate C

He is a decorated war hero. He's a vegetarian, doesn't smoke, drinks an
occasional beer and never cheated on his wife.

Which of these candidates would be your choice?

Decide first... no peeking, then scroll down for the response.

Candidate A is Franklin D. Roosevelt.
Candidate B is Winston Churchill.
Candidate C is Adolph Hitler.

And, by the way, on your answer to the abortion question:

If you said YES, you just killed Beethoven. (hahahaha)

Pretty interesting isn't it?
Makes a person think before judging someone.

Wait till you see the end of this note! Keep reading..

Never be afraid to try something new.


Amateurs...built the ark.
Professionals...built the Titanic

And Finally, can you imagine working for a company that has a little more
than 500 employees and has the following statistics:

* 29 have been accused of spousal abuse
* 7 have been arrested for fraud
* 19 have been accused of writing bad checks
* 117 have directly or indirectly bankrupted at least 2 businesses
* 3 have done time for assault
* 71 cannot get a credit card due to bad credit
* 14 have been arrested on drug-related charges
* 8 have been arrested for shoplifting
* 21 are currently defendants in lawsuits
* 84 have been arrested for drunk driving in the last year...

Can you guess which organization this is?

Give up yet?

It's the 535 members of the United States Congress.

The same group that crank out hundreds of new laws each year designed to
keep the rest of us in line.

Seen this before. The Congress part is good though. Well, actually, it's fscking pathetic.

Pretty sure Hitler used methamphetamines regularly, though. They should have thrown that in there...

I'd take candidate A, because atleast he will probably die quicker than the other choices.

PS: All politicians are garbage

While searching for the first one, I found this little gem:


Are people dumb enough to fall for this? If you take a person's year of birth and add their age in 1942 to it, you get... 1942. If you do the same thing with the year they took office and the number of years they were in office in 1942, you get... 1942. What a remarkable coincidence that if you do that for 6 different people, you get the same result! Remarkable.

It's like those silly things where you pick a number, perform some mathematical operations, then essentially do the same mathematical operations in reverse, and you get the number you started with. i.e.:
Pick a number
Add 1000
Multiply by 2
Subtract 2000.
Divide by 2.
Your answer is the number you started with. Duh.
