I hate to be "android" about this, but this is how it works:
This is the year 2006
2006= 1756+250
250= 5x50
so 2006=1756+(5x50) (steps 3, 4 and 5)
100=2x50
single digit 'Y' x 100 = 'Y'00 (steps 1, 2 and 4)
2006-(your birth year)= your age (step 6)

So, you are simply multiplying the number of times you eat chocolate by a hundred and adding it your age (2006 minus your birth year).

...End communication.....
Man, what a PARTY POOPER!  ;)

You know i've just noticed something....

The women's ordination topic is getting DANGEROUSLY CLOSE to the number of responses and pages as THIS topic!!!!!!

PEOPLE!!!  How is a thread actually having to DO with something doing better than a thread which is about nothing at all!!!!! 

This makes no sense... :mad:  :p

Egad! You're right!
And when I think that how I've actually contributed to this unusual situation, my shame is unbearable!
Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa!

It's okay, really.... I mean, just because you're contributing to the end of the world doesn't mean it's the.... end of the world.  Oh, scratch that.  HUGE mistake on your part ;)

serb1389,

I know you'll have fun with this one:

Okay, I tried that one at 8am (despite the fact that I know it's a visual trick) after I had barely awoken...... and let me tell you, that I hope one day you experience the supreme pain that I experienced today.

One of the great Paradoxes of our faith... it should be added to the list Peter came up with here:

Some other paradoxes to think about, though they have nothing to with our Faith:
  • Why is it our noses run and our feet smell?  :p
  • Why is it we drive on a parkway and park in a driveway?
  • How is it that someone who runs slow can stand fast?
:-\

Since we're now on paradoxes: I gotta do it...

Can God make a rock so big and heavy that He himself can't pick it up?

It would have to be bigger than the known universe.  :D  ;)

If nothing is bigger than God, does this mean that God is smaller than nothing?

A combination of incongruous terms. Kinda like: "decaf soy latte" which is listed on the menu in my cafe as a "Why Bother?"
Kinda like what my English teacher told my class during my sophomore year in high school about the word "sophomore".

"soph" = wise (as in "sophia")
"more" = derivation of "moron", or fool

Put these together, and you get an oxymoron: "sophomore" = wise fool.

Your "english teacher" is a living oxymoron who needs some lessons in etymology!
The suffix "moron" doesn't mean "fool", it means "child".

I have long had the impression that he really fabricated his translation just to pick on us sophomores.

I have no doubt this is probably true... I mean, for 3 of my 4 years in HS, as well as 3/4 of undergrad, I used every opportunity I could to make fun of sophomores!

Why is it that many of the "English majors" that I have met - some with University degrees! - are the worst writers and speakers that I know!  It seems their only endearing characteristic is the ability to churn out papers with remarkable speed, although with uninspiring quality.
