OT: Things to Remember

1. I signed up for an exercise class and was told to wear loose-fitting
clothing. If I HAD any loose-fitting clothing, I wouldn't have signed

up in the first place!

2. When I was young we used to go "skinny dipping", now I just "chunky
dunk".

3. The early bird still has to eat worms.

4. The worst thing about accidents in the kitchen is eating them.

5. Don't argue with an idiot; people watching may not be able to tell
the difference.

6. Wouldn't it be nice if whenever we messed up our life we could
simply press 'Ctrl Alt Delete' and start all over?

7. Stress is when you wake up screaming and then you realize you
haven't fallen asleep yet.

8. My wife says I never listen to her. At least I think that's what
she said.

9. Just remember...if the world didn't suck, we'd all fall off.

10. Why is it that our children can't read a Bible in school, but they
can in prison?

11. If raising children was going to be easy, it never would have
started with something called labor!

12. Brain cells come and brain cells go, but fat cells live forever.

Larry asks:


The reason is because the idea of a prison is central to Christian theology.
The word "penitentiary" comes from the Latin "paenitens," meaning to regret,
and implicitly to ask forgiveness. Likewise the word "sentence" comes from the
Latin "sentens", the present participle of "sentire," meaning to "feel," and
implicitly therefore to think, as in a sentiment expressed in a written
sentence.

The word "prison", btw, is simply a shortened version of the root word,
"apprehension," which the Latin root word was "prehendere", to seize. Thus if you
apprehend these few sentiments, the need for a place of penitence becomes clear.
