Girl on a Plane

Rated "G" by the Author.

This is simply too good not to share.

An atheist was seated next to a little girl on an airplane and he turned to her and said,  "Do you want to talk?  Flights go quicker if you strike up a conversation with a fellow passenger."
The little girl, who had just started to read her book, replied to the stranger, "What would you want to talk about?"
“Oh, I don't know," said the atheist.  "How about why there is no God, no Heaven or Hell, or no life after death?" as he smiled smugly.
"OK," she said.  "Those could be interesting topics; but let me ask you a question first. A horse, a cow, and a deer all eat the same stuff - grass. Yet a deer excretes little pellets, while a cow turns out a flat patty, but a horse produces clumps. Why do you suppose that is?"
The atheist, visibly surprised by the little girl's intelligence, thinks about it and says, "Hmmm, I have no idea."
To which the little girl replies, "Do you really feel qualified to discuss why there is no God, or no Heaven or Hell, or no life after death, when you don't know crap?"
And then she went back to reading her book.

I liked this one Paul! Enjoyed reading!

Brought back a story I read years ago about Shipped High in Transit(SHIT) not a bad word really...this girl said it all when it came to telling about God. We think words are bad until we know their real meaning behind is the real meaning behind SHIT..


Subject: Fabulous bit of historical knowledge

Ever wonder where the word "shit" comes from. Well here it is:

Certain types of manure used to be transported (as everything was back then) by ship. In dry form it weighs a lot less, but once water (at sea) hit it. It not only became heavier, but the process of fermentation began again, of which a by-product is methane gas.

As the stuff was stored below decks in bundles you can see what could (and did) happen; methane began to build up below decks and the first time someone came below at night with a lantern. BOOOOM!

Several ships were destroyed in this manner before it was discovered what was happening.

After that, the bundles of manure where always stamped with the term "S.H.I.T" on them which meant to the sailors to "Ship High In Transit." In other words, high enough off the lower decks so that any water that came into the hold would not touch this volatile cargo and start the production of methane.

Hey, Paul:

Thought I should visit your site - only seemed fair. I really enjoyed Girl on a Plane. I'll read some more when I have time. I also wondered -- on the illegal alien $$$ article - do any of those figures overlap? I was a bit overwhelmed on the total, and wondered if that possibility existed.

Oh thats excellent, made me laugh, also made me think that I am really not qualified to question God on any matter. Maybe cows don't have very good digestive systems? God bless. Baz
