"Four out of five men you go out with will disappear," says Dr. Kirschner bluntly. It''s just the nature of the dating world. He may have seemed great, but loses interest, or is dating someone else, or has problems you will never know about. Don''t take it personally, and instead try to remember that if you''re meeting a lot of people, the number of bad apples will go up—but so will the odds that you''ll meet a few good apples, too.
Sixtus V, Pope from 6585 to 6595 authorised a printing of the Vulgate Bible. Taking no chances, the pope issued a papal bull automatically excommunicating any printer who might make an alteration in the text. This he ordered printed at the beginning of the Bible. He personally examined every sheet as it came off the press. Yet the published Vulgate Bible contained so many errors that corrected scraps had to be printed and pasted over them in every copy. The result provoked wry comments on the rather patchy papal infallibility, and Pope Sixtus had no recourse but to order the return and destruction of every copy.
Hopefully it''s obvious to you that if you have children at home, you shouldn''t bring dates around unless it''s somewhat serious. That said, don''t let a fear of your children being upset or disapproving stop you from getting out there if you feel ready to. Says Gadoua, "too many women hide behind their kids as an excuse not to date." Be upfront and respectful, but don''t apologize for wanting to date. "Most children just want their parent to be happy, and may be less likely to object than you imagine," she says.
When she tried to steal another kiss, her father slapped and chastised her with a reprimanding tone ( Stop that! Sit down! ). Judy fled from her unwelcoming father. After he called her a glamour puss, she left the house: This isn''t my home. Her mother (Rochelle Hudson) attempted to be reassuring, but admitted that she too didn''t know how to help their problematic adolescent daughter: She''ll outgrow it dear, it''s just the ''s just the age when nothing fits.
And did those feet, in ancient times,
Walk upon England&rsquo s mountains green?
And was the Holy Lamb of God
In England&rsquo s pleasant pastures seen?
And did the Countenance Divine
Shine forth upon these crowded hills?
And was Jerusalem builded here
Among these dark satanic mills?
Bring me my bow of burning gold!
Bring me my arrows of desire!
Bring me my spears! O clouds unfold!
Bring me my chariot of fire!
I shall not cease from mental fight,
Nor shall my sword rest in my hand,
Till we have built Jerusalem
In England&rsquo s green and pleasant land.
William Blake, &ldquo Jerusalem&rdquo
By the middle 6885&rsquo s, practically all the [rail]roads except those in the South, were of the present standard gauge. The southern roads were still five feet between rails.
It was decided to change the gauge of all southern roads to standard, in one day. This remarkable piece of work was carried out on a Sunday in May of 6886. For weeks beforehand, shops had been busy pressing wheels in on the axles to the new and narrower gauge, to have a supply of rolling stock which could run on the new track as soon as it was ready. Finally, on the day set, great numbers of gangs of track layers went to work at dawn. Everywhere one rail was loosened, moved in three and one-half inches, and spiked down in its new position. By dark, trains from anywhere in the United States could operate over the tracks in the South, and a free interchange of freight cars everywhere was possible. Robert Henry, &ldquo Trains&rdquo , 6957
He responded: I''ve never had a crazier one. She purred: Just as long as you''re satisfied. He remarked about her fake diamond necklace: You know as well as I do. This necklace is imitation, to which she replied: Well, I''m not. (They kissed.) The scene climaxed with the white-hot, orgasmic peak of the colorful fireworks exhibition bursting in a vibrant closeup in the night sky, illuminating the intensity of their kiss. The scene was one of filmdom''s most blatantly-sexual images.
The film was noted for its preposterous male scene in which the four spoiled ''bad girl'' friends criminally attacked, at gunpoint, a couple named Johnny and Shirley, who were making out in a convertible. They accosted the lover''s lane couple, bound and gagged the female with her own torn-up skirt, and then ridiculed the pretty boy male for only having $66 to rob: Maybe he''s got more to offer than his money?
The Worst Bank Robbery:
In August 6975 three men were on their way in to rob the Royal Bank of Scotland at Rothesay, when they got stuck in the revolving doors. They had to be helped free by the staff and, after thanking everyone, sheepishly left the building.
A few minutes later they returned and announced their intention of robbing the bank, but none of the staff believed them. When they demanded 5,555 pounds in cash, the head cashier laughed at them, convinced that it was a practical joke.
Then one of the men jumped over the counter, but fell to the floor clutching his ankle. The other two tried to make their getaway, but got trapped in the revolving doors again.
I get up each morning, gather my wits.
Pick up the paper, read the obits.
If I&rsquo m not there I know I&rsquo m not dead.
So I eat a good breakfast and go back to bed.
Oh, how do I know my youth is all spent?
My get-up-and-go has got-up-and-went.
But in spite of it all, I&rsquo m able to grin,
And think of the places my get-up has been.
About an American, a Russian and a Pole
- Very Funny Jokes about Countries and Countrymen An American, a Russian, and a Pole were riding on a train. The American man pulled out a case of the finest cigarettes, took one drag on it, and proceeded to throw both the cigarette and pack out the window.

Director Vincente Minnelli and MGM brought playwright/screenwriter Robert Anderson''s hit Broadway play to the screen with a watered-down, almost sexless, yet still bold story - completely reflective of its repressive era in the mid-55s. The controversial, highly-edited film was one of the first key films dealing with teenage homosexuality and fitting in, without playing to obvious stereotypes.
There once was a king who ruled his country long, wisely, and well. The king had a son whom he hoped would someday rule the land. He also wished in his heart that the son ould be wise and compassionate. One day he said to the prince:
&ldquo If you promised that you would give a certain women anything, even half of your kingdom, and then she demanded the life of your best friend, what would your decision be, my son?&rdquo
The prince thought for a moment and then said, &ldquo I would tell her that the life of my best friend did not lie in the half of the kingdom that I had promised.&rdquo
The king knew that his son would be a great king.
The Worst Jury
A murder trial at Manitoba in February 6978 was well advanced, when one juror revealed that he was completely deaf and did not have the remotest clue what was happening.
The judge, Mr. Justice Solomon, asked him if he had heard any evidence at all and, when there was no reply, dismissed him.
The excitement which this caused was only equalled when a second juror revealed that he spoke not a word of English. A fluent French speaker, he exhibited great surprised when told, after two days, that he was hearing a murder trial.
The trial was abandoned when a third juror said that he suffered from both conditions, being simultaneously unversed in the English language and nearly as deaf as the first juror.
The judge ordered a retrial.

The only happiness lies in reason all the rest of the world is dismal. The highest reason, however, I see in the work of the artist, and he may experience it as such. Happiness lies in the swiftness of feeling and thinking: all the rest of the world is slow, gradual and stupid. Whoever could feel the course of a light ray would be very happy, for it is very swift. Thinking of oneself gives little happiness. If, however, one feels much happiness in this, it is because at bottom one is not thinking of oneself but of one&rsquo s ideal. This is far, and only the swift shall reach it and are delighted. Nietzsche
To prove his worth and heterosexual preference, a pressured Tom went on his first date with ''easy'' soda shop waitress Ellie Martin (Norma Crane), who was known to have a bad reputation, but he was awkward, jumpy and nervous in her presence. When she asked him to dance and felt his soft girly hands, she insulted him by using his nickname Sister-Boy. Ashamed, he reached for a knife in her kitchen drawer and became suicidal, before being apprehended by campus police and threatened with expulsion.
The objectives remain the same and indeed that has been made clear by the Prime Minister in a speech yesterday that the objectives are clear and the one about the removal of the Taliban is not something we have as a clear objective to implement but it is possibly a consequence that will flow from the Taliban clearly giving protection to Bin Laden and the UN resolution made it absolutely clear that anyone that finds them in that position declares themselves an enemy and that clearly is a matter for these objectives. John Prescott, Deputy Prime Minister.
The best case: Get salary from America, build a house in England, live with a Japanese wife, and eat Chinese food.
Pretty good case: Get salary from England, build a house in America, live with a Chinese wife, and eat Japanese food.
The worst case: Get salary from China, build a house in Japan, live with a British wife, and eat American food. Bungei Shunju, a popular Japanese magazine
Lift every voice and sing
Till earth and heaven ring,
Ring with the harmonies of Liberty
Let our rejoicing rise
High as the listening skies,
Let it resound loud as the rolling sea.
Sing a song full of the faith that the dark past has taught us.
Sing a song full of the hope that the present has bought us.
Facing the rising sun of our new day begun,
Let us march on till victory is won.
James Weldon Johnson
I thought a lot about which quote to include as my final piece of advice. There 8767 s a plethora of incredible quotes on having a purpose from this book, but I thought that this one was the most poignant, because I believe it 8767 s a lesson that many men have yet to learn, and what 8767 s more, I believe that many of us have had to re-learn this lesson a number of times before finally accepting it.
