Mind Candy...





Riddle 1

A mile from end to end,
Yet as close to you as a friend.
A precious commodity, freely given.
Seen on the dead and on the living.
Found on the rich, poor, short and tall,
But shared among children most of all.

What is it?


Riddle 2

Three lives have I.
Gentle enough to soothe the skin,
Light enough to caress the sky
Hard enough to crack rocks.

What am I?
 

Riddle 3

Luke had it before,
Paul had it behind.
Doctor Lowell had it before and behind,
And twice as bad as before.
Miss Gallager had it twice in the middle,
Before she was married.
Girls have it,
Boys do not.
It is in life,
But not in death.

What is it?


Riddle 4

Touching one, yet holding two,
It is a one-link chain.
Binding those who keep words true,
'Till death doth rend it twain.

What is it?

Sling Blade is one of my all time favorite movies!! Did you know that Billy Bob Thorton actually placed broken glass in his shoes so that he would walk like that?

Mmmm... fried taters. Now I'm hungry.

Funny, it's one of my all time favorive also!!No , I didn't know that Billy Bob Thorton actually placed broken glass in his shoes so that he would walk that way, but thanks for letting me know!!

Actually Imara, come to think of it, you do remind me of the lady that they tried to hook Billy Bob up with !!!

LOLOLOL!!! Ummmmmm, I'm running into typographical difficulties!!

Imara, I agree with SB's answers to these. Here's some HARD Mind Candy:

1.What is greater than God.
More evil than the Devil.
The poor have it.
The rich don't need it.
And if you eat it, you'll die?

2. You must keep this thing, its loss will affect your brothers. For once yours is lost, it will soon be lost by others.

3. There is a seven-letter word in the English language that contains ten words without rearranging any of its letters. What is the word?

4. There are 16 books of the Bible in the following paragraph...can you find them?

I once made a remark about the hidden books of the Bible. It was a lulu; kept people looking so hard for facts and for others it was a revelation. Some were in a jam especially since the names of the books were not capitalized, but the truth finally struck home to numbers of readers. To others, it was a real job. We want it to be a most fascinating few moments for you. Yes there will be some really easy ones to spot. Others may require judges to help them. I will quickly admit it usually takes a minister to find one of them, and there will be loud lamentations when it is found. A little lady says she brews a cup of tea so she can concentrate better. See how well you can compete. Relax now for there really are sixteen names of the books in the Bible in this story.

5. I start going and end up doing
finish everything, and conclude nothing.

Enjoy!!

Right, and what's your real theory? Funny, they all seem to have that ignorant,redneck stance on everything.I am going to go out on a limb and say that they also love NASCAR and that they sleep with an immediate family member...

There are a lot of people that are right and far-right of center in this country. You gotta remember, the web reaches the entire world. You're going to get all kinds. You, my friend, are a threat to their way of thinking. They don't like you or your kind.

Just a thought... would you be offended if someone wrote about Blacks, "Funny, they all seem to have that ignorant, ghetto stance on everything. I'm going to go out on a limb and say that they also love chicken and forties and that they have three or four kids by three or four baby daddies/mommas" ?

Imara, they think that anyway!!!two dogs wrote that if blacks looked up to Rice and Powell instead of idolizing Biggie and Tupac......I don't even like Biggie and Tupac!!!!I know plenty of blacks that think rap music is stupid!!!The other guy commented on how blacks degraded themselves in rap videos, so they make broad statements also!!

Some might say, well blacks DO degrade themselves in rap videos!!No, some blacks ,as well as whites, degrade themselves in rap videos!!!

I can say that rednecks like NASCAR!!!Because they admittedly do!!I can also say that they sleep with their immediate relatives, because they admittedly do!!Don't you watch the Jeff Foxworthy Show?!?!

And Imara....I was commenting only about the commenters, not about whites in general!!!If you read my comment, you will see that when I said "Funny, they all seem to have that ignorant,redneck stance on everything.I am going to go out on a limb and say that they also love NASCAR and that they sleep with an immediate family member..." I was referring to the people that started commenting on this site, not ALL whites in general!!!

Blogger Imara said...

Okay, Yogi, I got ya!! Give me my head back!! LOL!!

I see what you're saying, maybe I made a "general" analysis to your comments regarding a specific group of people, but I think you got my point. Didn't you? If not, my point being, just because someone takes a certain stance on issues, doesn't mean that they like a certain sport, or they partake in incestuous acts. You support my point in your response. And on another note, just because they stoop to making broad generalized statements doesn't mean you should... "so they make broad statements also!!" You're better than that...

Oh and no, I don't watch the Jeff Foxworthy Show. Who do you think I am?? Some ignorate redneck who loves NASCAR and sleeps with my brother?!!

Thu Jun 30, 02:45:00 PM 2005  
Blogger Imara said...

I'd picture you to be the ASS that you are!! LMAO!! I'm sorry!!! That was just too far. Seriously, if I'm being honest, my first thought would be that you're probably either a military person who is being forced (brainwashed) to say that, or that you're from a "red state". Beyond that, I really wouldn't have much of an opinion. I would reserve my right to make a judgment until I had more information about you.

And yes, you are better than that! Have yourself a Stuart Smalley moment. Go on! It'll feel good. Cause by-golly, you're smart enough. You're worth it.
