    WHOOPS sorry I high jacked your thread ,back to subject.


    Science in the Bible, Isaiah knew the earth was round because God told him threw his angle.

    Isaiah 40:22

    Do you not know? Have you not heard? Has it not been declared to you from the beginning? Have you not understood since the foundation of the earth? 22He sits enthroned above the 'circle' of the earth; its dwellers are like grasshoppers. He stretches out the heavens like a curtain, and spreads them out like a tent to live in. 23He brings the princes to nothing and makes the rulers of the earth meaningless.…

    Oh great! now all we need to do before going outside is to rub a hippo on our exposed skin.
    I wonder if there are any pygmy hippos...
    Wait! this is big business idea. I'll get a heard of hippos and use UV lights to activate the secretions.
    Then a machine can use a squeegee to get the stuff off the hippo and vacuum bottle it. I can call it Hippo Juice and sell it for $49.98 per ounce. It's not likely many people will be allergic to it.
    The disclaimer on the label will read something like this:
    This product contains all natural hippo juice and those with a hippo allergy or sensitivity should not use it.
    Consult with your family doctor before applying the first time.

    I wonder how any hippos I will need t keep up with the demand...

    Just a guess, but I think you already have enough hippos to meet demand.

    I found an article that said the US military has 3,680 total aircraft with the USAF having the most, the USN having the second most, and the US Army having the 3rd most. But it did not break down the numbers. The article also said China has more military aircraft than the US does.

    I read that is why the Army was talking about recruiting 16 year olds.
    At 16 less of them have a criminal record, but by the time they are 18 a lot more do.
    Sad commentary on today's youth.

    Unusual Fact that I learned just 2 weeks ago:

    A casket and a coffin are not the same thing. They are different.
    Sure, you put a dead body in both for burial, but what's the difference?

    If you don't know, drag your mouse to highlight the text below for the answer:
    .
    A casket has 6 sides and is shaped like a loaf of bread.
    A coffin has 8 sides and is narrower at the head than the shoulders
    and it looks like, well, the black box that Dracula sits up in.
    Fun stuff!
