one-liners

Here are 25 of my favorite one-liners from comedian Steven Wright: 

1)  I'd kill for a Nobel Peace Prize.

2)  Borrow money from pessimists -- they don't expect it back.

3)  Half the people you know are below average.

4)  82.7% of all statistics are made up on the spot.

5)  A clear conscience is usually the sign of a bad memory.

6)  All those who believe in psychokinesis, raise my hand.

7)  The early bird may get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.

8)  OK, so what's the speed of dark?

9)  How do you tell when you're out of invisible ink?

10)  If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.

11)  Depression is merely anger without enthusiasm.

12)  When everything is coming your way, you're in the wrong lane.

13)  Hard work pays off in the future; laziness pays off now.

14)  I intend to live forever ... So far, so good.

15)  If Barbie is so popular, why do you have to buy her friends?

16)  Eagles may soar, but weasels don't get sucked into jet engines.

17)  What happens if you get scared half to death twice?

18)  My mechanic told me, "I couldn't repair your brakes, so I made your horn louder."

19)  Why do psychics have to ask you for your name?

20)  If at first you don't succeed, destroy all evidence that you tried.

21)  A conclusion is the place where you got tired of thinking.

22)  Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

23)  The hardness of the butter is proportional to the softness of the bread.

24)  The sooner you fall behind, the more time you'll have to catch up.

25)  If at first you don't succeed, skydiving is not for you.

bible reading nov 1-2

  Bible reading for weekend Nov 1 -- 2 Nov 1 -- Hosea 7 and Psalms 120-122 Nov 2 -- Hosea 8 and Psalms 123-125 ================   "Were I to write for him my laws by the ten thousands, they would be regarded as a strange thing." (Hosea 8:12) THE RESULTS OF SIN (ch 7-8). Notice the words and metaphors to describe Israel's sinful condition: they are surrounded with, and proud of, their evil (7:1-3); like adulterers in the heat of passion (7:4-5); their anger is like a hot oven (7:6-7); they are like a half-cooked (one side only) cake (7:8); their strength is gone (7:9); they are like silly doves easily trapped (7:11-12); they are undependable like a warped bow (7:16). In spite of all of this they are so proud of themselves! (We might say they have a strong self-esteem.) They have spurned what is good (8:3); they sow to the wind and have no real fruit (8:7); they are a useless vessel (8:8) and a wild donkey wandering alone (8:9); they regard God's law as a strange thing

bible reading dec 3-5

  Bible reading for weekend December 3 -- 5  Dec 3 -- Nahum 1 and Luke 17 Dec 4 -- Nahum 2 and Luke 18 Dec 5 -- Nahum 3 and Luke 19 ================ "The LORD is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble; he knows those who take refuge in him. But with an overflowing flood he will make a complete end of the adversaries, and will pursue his enemies into darkness." (Nahum 1:7-8)  TIME'S UP FOR NINEVEH (Nah 1-3). The prophecy of Nahum is God's word to the people of Nineveh, part two. Jonah was part one, chronicling a city-wide repentance of Assyrians in the capital about a hundred years earlier. The closing bookend is Nahum, and the Assyrian empire is big, powerful, and aggressive. Notice the references to chariots (2:3-4, 13; 3:2). The Assyrians were a militarily advanced culture, and cruel in their warfare. Whatever spiritual receptivity they had at the time of Jonah was gone by the time of Nahum. Nahum may not have actually visited Nineveh, for it seems the book was w

bible reading june 4-6

Bible reading for weekend June 4 -- 6 Jun 4 -- Isaiah 36 and Revelation 6 Jun 5 -- Isaiah 37 and Revelation 7 Jun 6 -- Isaiah 38 and Revelation 8 ================    "So now, O LORD our God, save us from his hand, that all the kingdoms of the earth may know that you alone are the LORD." (Isaiah 37:20) HISTORICAL INTERLUDE (ch 36). Chapters 36 and 37 demonstrate that what Isaiah prophesied actually came to pass. The pre-siege negotiations begin. The Rabshakeh, referring to the chief representative of the Assyrian army, dissuades the people of Jerusalem from trusting in Egypt for deliverance (good advice), and also not to trust the Lord, the God of Israel, to rescue them (bad advice). The Assyrians are mocking the God of Israel as just another regional god who would fall at the hands of their mighty men. "Who among all the gods of these lands have delivered their lands out of my hand, that the LORD should deliver Jerusalem out of my hand?" (v 20). Hezekiah's trus
