Food for Thought

Recommended Posts

I think it is time for fortune cookies to abandon those lame fortunes and useless lottery numbers and instead give the dining public some actual facts to chew on. Here's a few examples of what could become a real contribution to conversation at the table:

--The diameter of the moon is less than the distance from L.A. to New York.

--The Ipad 3 would have been the world's fastest computer in 1986.

--Black cats are considered good luck in Japan.

--Turtles can breathe through their rear ends.

-Female preying mantises decapitate their partners after copulation.

OK, that would be the quote. It does leave me with some questions, however:

Does the population of gay praying mantises increase with time?

Does the male praying mantis know he's to be beheaded, and perform anyway?

Shouldn't the spelling of the female be 'preying' mantis?

Answers are useless without their matching Questions.

It isn't possible to jump the tallest buildings in a single bound because if you're bound you can't jump very high at all.

Our cable box provides over 600 channels of unadulterated crap and yours isn't any better.

I disagree. The great philosophers seem to concur that where there's a will, there's a way. Or was that Shakespeare? Doesn't matter. Anyway, I would have to posit that being bound wouldn't prevent you from jumping the tallest building in a single bound if you were bound to do so.

Shall we discuss angels and heads of pins next?
