WHAT DO WOMEN WANT?

KING ARTHUR AND THE OLD UGLY WOMAN
  
Young King Arthur was ambushed and imprisoned by the monarch of a neighbouring  kingdom. The monarch could have killed him but was moved by Arthur's youth and ideals.  So, the monarch offered him his freedom, as long as he could answer a very difficult question.  Arthur would have a year to figure out the answer and, if, after a year, he still had no answer, he would be put to death.
  
The question?...What do women really want?  Such a question would perplex even the most knowledgeable man, and to young Arthur, it seemed an impossible query.  But, since it was better than death, he accepted the monarch's proposition to have an answer by year's end.
  
He returned to his kingdom and began to poll everyone: the princess, the priests, the wise men and even the court jester.  He spoke with everyone, but no one could give him a satisfactory answer.
  
Many people advised him to consult the old ugly woman, for only she would have the answer.
  
But the price would be high; as the woman was famous throughout the kingdom for the exorbitant prices she charged.
  
The last day of the year arrived and Arthur had no choice but to talk to the old woman.  She agreed to answer the question, but he would have to agree to her price first.
  
The old ugly woman wanted to marry Sir Lancelot, the most noble of the Knights of the Round Table and Arthur's closest friend!
  
Young Arthur was horrified.  She was hunchbacked and hideous, had only one tooth, smelled like sewage, made obscene noises, etc.  He had never encountered such a repugnant creature in all his life.
  
He refused to force his friend to marry her and endure such a terrible burden; but Lancelot, learning of the proposal, spoke with Arthur.
  
He said nothing was too big of a sacrifice compared to Arthur's life and the preservation of the Round Table.
  
Hence, a wedding was proclaimed and the woman answered Arthur's question thus:
  
What a woman really wants, she answered....is to be in charge of her own life.
  
Everyone in the kingdom instantly knew that the woman had uttered a great truth and that Arthur's life would be spared.
  
And so it was, the neighbouring monarch granted Arthur his freedom and Lancelot and the ugly woman had a wonderful wedding.
  
The honeymoon hour approached and Lancelot, steeling himself for a horrific experience, entered the bedroom.  But, what a sight awaited him. The most beautiful woman he had ever seen lay before him on the bed.  The astounded Lancelot asked what had happened.
  
The young beauty replied that since he had been so kind to her when she appeared ugly, she would henceforth, be her horrible deformed self only half the time and the beautiful maiden the other half.
  
Which would he prefer?  Beautiful during the day -- or night?
  
Lancelot pondered the predicament.  During the day, a beautiful woman to show off to his friends, but at night, in the privacy of his castle, an old ugly woman?  Or, would he prefer having a hideous woman during the day, but by night, a beautiful woman for him to enjoy wondrous intimate moments?
  
What would YOU do?
  
What Lancelot chose is below.
  
BUT -- make YOUR choice before you scroll down below.

OKAY?  

 

Noble Lancelot said that he would allow HER to make the choice herself.
  
Upon hearing this, she announced that she would be beautiful all the time because he had respected her enough to let her be in charge of her own life.
  
Now....what is the moral to this story?
   
  

The moral is --
  

If you don't let a woman have her own way...
Things are going to get ugly..

STILL A LONG WAY TO GO!

THE MAILMAN'S LAST DAY

After 35 years of service, mailman George decided to retire. On his last day, he makes his usual rounds.
When he arrives at the first house, the whole family comes out, congratulates him, and sends him on his way with a tidy gift envelope.

At the second house, they present him with a box of fine cigars. The folks at the third house hand him a selection of terrific fishing lures.

At the next house, he is met at the door by a strikingly beautiful woman in a revealing negligee. She takes him by the hand and leads him up to the bedroom, where she blows his mind with the most passionate sex he has ever experienced.

When they're done, they go downstairs, where she fixes him a giant breakfast. As she pours him a cup of coffee, he notices a dollar bill sticking out from under the cup's bottom edge.

"All this is just too wonderful for words," he says, "but what's the dollar for?"

"Well," she says, "last night, I told my husband that today would be your last day and that I wanted to do something special for you. I asked him what to give you. He said, 'Screw him. Give him a dollar.' But breakfast was my idea."

Social Justice Warriors


Are you upset all the time? Do minor things that other people do drive you up the wall? Do you spend all day muttering about unintended petty slights? Do you self-diagnose your own psychiatric disorders?
Are you convinced that you’re being oppressed by all the people around you?
You’re not just a paranoid schizophrenic. You might also be a Social Justice Warrior.
What the Jacobins and Bolsheviks were to earlier eras, the Social Justice Warrior is to the millennial generation. Just don’t expect an SJW to mount the barricades or storm anything physical. If there were a button on their keyboards that would let them guillotine or gulag their enemies, they would use it.
Since there isn’t, they have to generate hashtagged social media whine mobs instead.

Utility vs. Homeowners Over Solar Power

In Hawaii, where 12 percent of the homes have solar panels, handling the surplus power is putting pressure on the state’s biggest utility, which is fighting to reduce what it pays for the energy.

POTUS Crushes the Marijuana Movement








When asked about where the U.S. stands on the legalization of marijuana, Obama uttered 15 words sure to send shivers down the spines of marijuana supporters:
I do not foresee, any time soon, Congress changing the law at a national basis.
President Obama's expanded commentary went as follows:
Right now, that is not federal policy, and I do not foresee, any time soon, Congress changing the law at a national basis. But I do think that if there are states that show that they are not suddenly a magnet for additional crime, that they have a strong enough public health infrastructure to push against the potential for increased addiction, then it's conceivable that it will spur on a national debate. But that is going to be some time off.
In other words, we have a reinforcement from the president that the federal government is still concerned with the potential long-term effects marijuana might have on a user in terms of its potential addictive qualities, as well as its potential to increase crime rates.
Source: National Institute on Drug Abuse, Facebook.
Of course, getting a straight answer on either point is tough, as there are studies suggesting either side could be correct. The Huffington Post reported in August that, according to the National Incident Based Reporting System and the FBI Uniform Crime Reports, Denver crime rates were up 7% compared to the corresponding period in 2013. Specifically, public drunkenness was up 237% and drug violations rose 20% -- all within the first year of marijuana's legalization within the state of Colorado.

WD-40 SOLVES ALL PROBLEMS

There's nothing worse than getting dog poo off your shoe. Spray some on the affected sole and then use an old toothbrush to get it off easy. 

Spray a thin layer of WD-40 on a shovel blade and the snow will slide right off, making it easier to move the stuff.

THAT FOLKS IS THE PROBLEM

Bud the Cowboy
 
A cowboy named Bud was overseeing his herd in a remote mountainous pasture in Montana when suddenly a brand-new BMW advanced toward him out of a cloud of dust. The driver, a young man in a Brioni® suit, Gucci® shoes, RayBan® sunglasses and YSL® tie, leaned out the window and asked the cowboy, "If I tell you exactly how many cows and calves you have in your herd, will you give me a calf?"
  
Bud looks at the man, who obviously is a yuppie, then looks at his
peacefully grazing herd and calmly answers, "Sure, why not?"
  
The yuppie parks his car, whips out his Dell® notebook computer,
connects it to his Apple i phone, and surfs to a NASA page on the
Internet, where he calls up a GPS satellite to get an exact fix on his
location which he then feeds to another NASA satellite that scans the area in an ultra-high-resolution photo.
 
The young man then opens the digital photo in Adobe Photoshop® and exports it to an image processing facility in Hamburg , Germany ...
 
Within seconds, he receives an email on his Apple ipad® that the image has been processed and the data stored. He then accesses an MS-SQL® database through an ODBC connected Excel® spreadsheet with email on his Galaxy S5® and, after a few minutes, receives a response.
  
Finally, he prints out a full-color, 150-page report on his hi-tech,
miniaturized HP LaserJet® printer, turns to the cowboy and says, "You have exactly 1,586 cows and calves."
  
"That's right. Well, I guess you can take one," says Bud.  He watches the young man select one of the animals and looks on with amusement as the young man stuffs it into the trunk of his car.
  
Then Bud says to the young man, "Hey, if I can tell you exactly what
your business is, will you give it back to me?"
 
The young man thinks about it for a second and then says, "Okay, why not?"
  
"You're a Congressman for the U.S. Government", says Bud.
  
"Wow! That's correct," says the yuppie, "but how did you guess that?"
  
"No guessing required." answered the cowboy. "You showed up here even though nobody called you; you want to get paid for an answer I already knew, to a question I never asked. You used millions of dollars worth of equipment trying to show me how much smarter than me you are; and you don't know a thing about how working people make a living - or about cows, for that matter. This is a herd of sheep."
  
"Now give me back my dog."
  
AND THAT FOLKS IS WHAT THE PROBLEM IS ALL ABOUT.

The Blind Cashier, at Bass Pro Shop.

A woman goes into the  Bass Pro Shop to buy a rod and reel for her grandson's  birthday. She doesn't know which one to get so she just grabs  one and goes over to the counter.

 

A Bass Pro Shop  associate is standing there wearing dark shades. She says,  "Excuse me, sir. Can you tell me anything about this rod and  reel?"

 

He says, "Ma'am, I'm  completely blind; but if you'll drop it on the counter, I can  tell you everything from the sound it makes."

 

She doesn't believe  him but drops it on the counter anyway.

 

He says, "That's a  six-foot Shakespeare graphite rod with a Zebco 404 reel and  10-LB. test line. It's a good all around combination and it's  on sale this week for only $20.00."

 

She says, "It's  amazing that you can tell all that just by the sound of it  dropping on the counter. I'll take it!" As she opens her  purse, her credit card drops on the floor.

 

Oh, that sounds like a  Master Card," he says.

 

She bends down to pick  it up and accidentally   farts.   At  first she is really embarrassed, but then realizes there is no  way the blind clerk could tell it was she who tooted. Being  blind, he wouldn't know that she was the only person around.  

 

The man rings up the  sale and says, "That'll be $34.50 please."

 

The woman is totally  confused by this and asks, "Didn't you tell me the rod and  reel were on sale for $20.00? How did you get $34.50?"  

 

He replies, "Yes,  Ma'am. The rod and reel is $20.00, but the Duck Call is $11.00  and the Bear Repellent is $3.50."

INTIMIDATION AT A SMALL CHURCH IN THE NORTH GA MOUNTAINS

PREPARING FOR AN ANTI-CHRISTIAN, PRO-MUSLIM FUTURE? Intimidation Coming to a Church Near You


I feel very fortunate to live in the mountains of North Georgia. The area is replete with beautiful green contours, a myriad of rushing streams, and lush hardwood forests filled with wildlife. Living here makes the violence and strife we see everyday around the country seem like some other planet. The violence in the Middle East seems like some other galaxy. However, the truth is no one anywhere is immune from what is happening in the world today.
Recently, a very small church in this area held a conference on the threat of Islam in America. The speakers at the conference were extremely knowledgeable and experienced in identifying and countering the threat Islam poses. Their presentations were incredibly detailed and comprehensive. My great concern about the true nature of Islam was confirmed by what I heard.
We really have to wake up to the fact that Islam is not a “religion of peace”, you know, the ubiquitous liberal mantra. It is a harsh, totalitarian form of societal rule completely incompatible with our culture and constitutional form of government. Islam sees the world very simply – you are either part of the Islamic world or you are not. If you are not, the Islamic followers are obligated to either subdue you to the faith or kill you. They are never to stop trying and are to use whatever means necessary to accomplish this. Therefore, deception and violence are acceptable if it promotes the cause of Islam.

****************************************

One thing one of the presenters at the conference said has really stayed with me. He stated that history shows that the more people take the Bible literally, the more peaceful they become. However, the more people take the Qur’an literally, the more violent they become. I believe that’s all you need to remember if you have doubts about what we face.

SPRING BREAK!!!!
TROY, AL (WSFA) -Two Troy University students have been suspended and are facing charges in Florida in connection to a what authorities are calling a gang rape during spring break last month.
Law enforcement in Bay County, FL, have charged Delonte’ Martistee, 22, of Bainbridge, GA, and Ryan Austin Calhoun, 23, of Mobile, with sexual battery by multiple perpetrators.
Troy University officials confirmed Martisee and Calhoun were suspended. Martistee was also removed from the Troy track team.
Florida authorities thanked the Troy Police Department for helping uncover the case and catch the suspects. Troy police were investigating a shooting in Troy when they discovered video on a suspect’s cell phone of what appeared to be a gang rape during spring break.
Authorities described the cell phone video as the most sickening, disgusting thing they’ve ever seen. It reportedly shows the crime happening in broad daylight with a crowd of several hundred people on the beach. Authorities say the victim appeared to be unconscious in the video.

Race, Genes And Intelligence

Created Equal
Race, Genes And Intelligence

By William Saletan
Slate Online
11-25-7


"Among white Americans, the average IQ, as of a decade or so ago, was 103. Among Asian-Americans, it was 106. Among Jewish Americans, it was 113. Among Latino Americans, it was 89. Among African-Americans, it was 85. Around the world, studies find the same general pattern: whites 100, East Asians 106, sub-Sarahan Africans 70. One IQ table shows 113 in Hong Kong, 110 in Japan, and 100 in Britain. White populations in Australia, Canada, Europe, New Zealand, South Africa, and the United States score closer to one another than to the worldwide black average. It's been that way for at least a century."
 
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights"
- Declaration of Independence
 
Last month, James Watson, the legendary biologist, was condemned and forced into retirement after claiming that African intelligence wasn't "the same as ours." "Racist, vicious and unsupported by science," said the Federation of American Scientists. " Utterly unsupported by scientific evidence," declared the U.S. government's supervisor of genetic research. The New York Times told readers that when Watson implied "that black Africans are less intelligent than whites, he hadn't a scientific leg to stand on."

INFORMATION PLEASE!!!

He Was Just Trying To Phone An Old Friend, But Instead She Left Him This.


...

When I was quite young, my father had one of the first telephones in our neighborhood. I remember well the polished old case fastened to the wall. The shiny receiver hung on the side of the box. I was too little to reach the telephone, but used to listen with fascination when my mother used to talk to it. Then I discovered that somewhere inside the wonderful device lived an amazing person - her name was "Information Please" and there was nothing she did not know. "Information Please" could supply anybody's number and the correct time.

My first personal experience with this genie-in the-bottle came one day while my mother was visiting a neighbor. Amusing myself at the tool bench in the basement, I whacked my finger with a hammer. The pain was terrible, but there didn't seem to be any reason in crying because there was no one home to give sympathy. I walked around the house sucking my throbbing finger, finally arriving at the stairway.

The telephone! Quickly, I ran for the foot stool in the parlor and dragged it to the landing. Climbing up, I unhooked the receiver in the parlor and held it to my ear. "Information Please," I said into the mouthpiece just above my head. A click or two and a small clear voice spoke into my ear.

"Information."

"I hurt my finger..." I wailed into the phone. The tears came readily enough now that I had an audience.

"Isn't your mother home?" came the question.

"Nobody's home but me." I blubbered.

"Are you bleeding?" the voice asked.

"No," I replied. "I hit my finger with the hammer and it hurts."

"Can you open your icebox?" she asked. I said I could. "Then chip off a little piece of ice and hold it to your finger," said the voice.

After that, I called "Information Please" for everything. I asked her for help with my geography and she told me where Philadelphia was. She helped me with my math. She told me my pet chipmunk, that I had caught in the park just he day before, would eat fruit and nuts.

Then, there was the time Petey, our pet canary died. I called "Information Please" and told her the sad story. She listened, then said the usual things grown-ups say to soothe a child. But I was unconsoled. I asked her, "Why is it that birds should sing so beautifully and bring joy to all families, only to end up as a heap of feathers on the bottom of a cage?"

She must have sensed my deep concern, for she said quietly, "Paul, always remember that there are other worlds to sing in." Somehow I felt better.

Another day I was on the telephone. "Information Please."

"Information," said the now familiar voice.

"How do you spell fix?" I asked.

All this took place in a small town in the Pacific Northwest. When I was 9 years old, we moved across the country to Boston. I missed my friend very much.

"Information Please" belonged in that old wooden box back home, and I somehow never thought of trying the tall, shiny new phone that sat on the table in the hall.

As I grew into my teens, the memories of those childhood conversations never really left me. Often, in moments of doubt and perplexity I would recall the serene sense of security I had then. I appreciated now how patient, understanding, and kind she was to have spent her time on a little boy.

A few years later, on my way west to college, my plane put down in Seattle. I had about half an hour or so between planes. I spent 15 minutes or so on the phone with my sister, who lived there now. Then without thinking what I was doing, I dialed my hometown operator and said, "Information, Please." Miraculously, I heard the small, clear voice I knew so well, "Information."

I hadn't planned this but I heard myself saying, "Could you please tell me how to spell fix?"

There was a long pause. Then came the soft spoken answer, "I guess your finger must have healed by now."

I laughed. "So it's really still you," I said. "I wonder if you have any idea how much you meant to me during that time."

"I wonder," she said, "if you know how much your calls meant to me. I never had any children, and I used to look forward to your calls."

I told her how often I had thought of her over the years and I asked if I could call her again when I came back to visit my sister.

"Please do," she said. "Just ask for Sally."

Three months later I was back in Seattle. A different voice answered "Information."

I asked for Sally.

"Are you a friend?" She said.

"Yes, a very old friend," I answered.

"I'm sorry to have to tell you this, she said. Sally had been working part-time the last few years because she was sick. She died five weeks ago."

Before I could hang up she said, "Wait a minute. Did you say your name was Paul?"

"Yes."

"Well, Sally left a message for you. She wrote it down in case you called.

Let me read it to you." The note said, "Tell him I still say there are other worlds to sing in. He'll know what I mean."

I thanked her and hung up. I knew what Sally meant.

AZEALIA BANKS DOESNT DATE BLACK MEN

Quoted: Azealia Banks on why she doesn't date black men


via www.vibe.com
Someone on Instagram asked Azealia Banks why she only dates white men with money.

Her response:
Because black men take black women for granted and I’m too busy with music to be fighting for my rights at home. I already have to fight for respect with the black men in hip-hop so When I get home I like things to be nice and easy. Make sense?

AND THE GAYS GOT MARRIED


FACEBOOK IS WATCHING YOU!

Facebook is 'illegally' tracking people’s internet searches across the web, even if they do not have an account with the social network.
The technology company is using so-called internet ‘cookies’ – little pieces of tracking data - to collect information about people’s activity online, each time they visit a website which features a Facebook button.
Academics in Belgium claim that Mark Zuckerberg's social network is breaching EU privacy laws by placing the tracking cookies on computers without the user's consent to log their browsing data.

Facebook buttons are on more than 13 million ordinary websites, including those run by the government and the National Health Service, and allow users to do things such as ‘like’ a website, or ‘share’ the link on their own Facebook page.  
A new report from the University of Leuven and a Brussels university claims that Facebook is tracking internet users in Europe for two years even if they have expressly opted out.
Facebook has more than 1.3 billion users but there are millions more visits from people who are not signed up.
The researchers say Facebook is putting tracking cookies on internet users' laptops, PCs and phones when the visit facebook.com - so they can target them with online advertising.
