Guns and More

Do Guns Kill People?
I’m a firm believer that guns don’t kill people, it’s people that kill people. Here’s a cartoon that depicts this:


Funny Numbers
As I mentioned a few days ago this year has four "interesting" dates 1/1/11, 1/11/11, 11/1/11 & 11/11/11. Recently someone showed me this:

Take the last 2 digits of the YEAR of your birth, add the age you will turn this year and it will equal 111...... try it. It works, but only if you are born before 2000.

Sounds like magic? No, it’s just a mathematical fact. Next year the sum will be 112. The year after 113. (It’s just taking your age and adding to your birth year. Birth Year + Age = Current Year, but since only the last two digits of the birth year are used, it yields 111 instead of 2011.) Next year we’ll all be a year older so the formula will give 112 for 2012.

Tennessee Granddaddy Says:
It seems that we want to blame others when things don’t go as planned. A headline read, “SUV hits car and kills driver”… huh? Did the SUV do this, or the driver of the SUV? What’s wrong with individuals accepting personal responsibility?
