Lawyers

“To me, a lawyer is basically the person that knows the rules of the country. We’re all throwing the dice, playing the game, moving our pieces around the board, but if there is a problem the lawyer is the only person who has read the inside of the top of the box.”

Just for Fun

The Swiss have an interesting army. Five hundred years without a war. Pretty impressive.

Also pretty lucky for them.

Ever see that little Swiss Army knife they have to fight with?

Not much of a weapon there. Corkscrews. Bottle openers.

“Come on, buddy, let’s go. You get past me, the guy in back of me, he’s got a spoon. Back off. I’ve got the toe clippers right here.”

“According to most studies, people’s number one fear is public speaking. Number two is death. Death is number two. Does that sound right? This means to the average person, if you go to a funeral, you’re better off in the casket than doing the eulogy.”

Missionary Dating

I recently read A Match Made on Earth When Christians date outside the fold by Naomi Schaefer Riley from The Opinion Journal from The Wall Street Journal editorial pages. The thought provoking piece discusses some of the dynamics involved when Christians date non-Christians.

Click the link above to read the article which begins with this memorable Seinfeld reference.

In an episode of “Seinfeld” that lays bare the characters’ secular sensibilities, Elaine is shocked to learn that her on-again, off-again boyfriend, Puddy, is a believing Christian. “So is it a problem that I’m not really religious?” she asks him upon realizing their differing worldviews. “Not for me,” he answers. “I’m not the one going to hell.” Though Elaine herself acknowledges that she doesn’t believe in an afterlife, she becomes increasingly angry with Puddy for not caring more about her eternal damnation. Finally, she explodes: “You should be trying to save me!”
