A man has two children. One of them is a boy. What’s the probability that the other one is a boy?
Most people think this is the same as: A man has a child, and it’s a boy. He then has another child. What is the probability that the second one is a boy too? The answer to that is 1 in 2, or 50%. It’s like saying: if I toss a coin and it comes down heads, what are the odds that it will come down heads next time? But this problem is quite different.

Here is a good one! Too many people get angry for apparently nothing or
very little. Consider road-rage and whatever else rage.
One day I hopped in a taxi and we took off for the airport.
We were driving in the right lane when suddenly a black car jumped
out of a parking space right in front of us.
My taxi driver slammed on his breaks, skidded, and missed the
other car by just inches!
The driver of the other car whipped his head around and started
yelling at us. My taxi driver just smiled and waved at the guy.
And I mean, he was really friendly.
So I asked, ‘Why did you just do that? This guy almost ruined your
car and sent us to the hospital!’
This is when my taxi driver taught me what I now call, ‘The Law of
the Garbage Truck.’ He explained that many people are like garbage trucks.
They run around full of garbage, full of frustration, full of
anger, and full of disappointment.
As their garbage piles up, they need a place to dump it and
sometimes they’ll dump it on you.
Don’t take it personally. Just smile, wave, wish them well, and
Don’t take their garbage and spread it to other people at work, at
home , or on the streets.
The bottom line is that successful people do not let garbage trucks
take over their day.
Life’s too short to wake up in the morning with regrets, so…
‘Love the people who treat you right.
Pray for the ones who don’t.’
Life is ten percent what you make it and ninety percent how you
What a great philosophy! An Excellent one!

The Further Adventures of Curtis and Leroy
A man was in his front yard mowing grass when Curtis and Leroy came out of their house and went straight to the mailbox.
Curtis opened it then slammed it shut and they both stormed back in the house.
A little later they came out of their house again, went to the mail box and opened it, and slammed it shut. Angrily, they went back into the house.
As the man was getting ready to edge the lawn, Curtis and Leroy came out
again, marched to the mail box, opened it and then slammed it closed harder than ever.
Puzzled by their actions the man asked, “Is something wrong?”
To which Curtis replied, “There certainly is!”
“Our stupid computer keeps saying, “YOU’VE GOT MAIL!”

Curtis and Leroy were dragging their dead deer back to their car. Another hunter approached pulling his along too. ‘Hey, I don’t want to tell you how to do something, but I can tell you that it’s much easier if you drag the deer in the other direction. Then the antlers won’t dig into the ground.’
After the third hunter left, the two decided to try it.
A little while later Curtis said to Leroy, ‘You know, that guy was right. This is a lot easier!’
Leroy added ‘Yeah, but we’re getting farther and farther away from the truck!’

Curtis and Leroy wanted a loan for $1000. The banker pulled out the loan application, “What are you going to do with the money?”
“Buy old cars, fix them up and then resell them,” was their response.
“What have you got for collateral?”
“What is collateral.”
“Well that’s something of value that would cover the cost of the loan. Have you got any vehicles?”
“Yes, 1949 Chevy pickup.”
The banker shook his head, “How about livestock?”
“Yes, we have a horse.”
“How old is it?”
“Don’t know, it has no teeth.”
Finally the banker decided to make the $1000 loan.
Curtis and Leroy had told a white lie so that they could get the money in order to make some white lightning, mountain dew, Moonshine or hooch. They thought that it would be a faster way to make money and pay off the loan.
Several weeks later they went back in the bank. Curts pulled out a roll of bills, “We want to pay off our loan.” he said. He then handed the banker the money to pay their loan off.
“What are you going to do with the rest of that money?”
“Bury it on our land.”
“Why don’t you deposit it in my bank,” he asked.
“We’ve never done that. What does it mean?”
“You put the money in our bank and we take care of it for you. When you want to use it you can withdraw it.”
Leroy leaned across the desk, “What have you got for collateral?”

Curtis and Leroy, who are down on their luck, walk through a luxurious neighbourhood looking for odd jobs to do. They go up to a large house, ring the bell and the owner comes to the door.
He asks Curtis and Leroy what he can do for them. They explain that they are poor and are looking for odd jobs to do. The man thinks about it for a second and then remembers that he has been wanting his porch painted. He asks them if they can paint?
“Well, I’ve been wanting my porch painted, how much would you charge?” the man replies.
“I don’t know, say $50 bucks.”
He thinks this is very fair, gets the paint out of the garage and tells them to go ahead and get started.
He closes the door and walks back inside.
His wife asks him, “Who was at the door?” He tells her about Curtis and Leroy and their situation and then tells his wife that they agreed to paint the porch for $50 bucks.
The astonished wife says, “$50 bucks, but that porch goes the full length of our house and then some. It will take at least a day to paint it. You really should pay them more.”
“But that’s all they wanted, and anyway their just two dumb lads.”
10 minutes later, Curtis knocks on the door. The man answers the door and Curtis says, “All done.”
With a surprised look on his face, “I can’t believe it, you’re already done painting the entire porch!”
“Yes, and by the way it’s not a porch it’s a Ferrari.”
