I watched a movie about Mr. Dobson,I was so impressed not only with his intellect but his sense of humor,this is one that he told and I thought it was pretty funny.


Adam was talking to God and Adam said “thank you for creating me but thank you even more for creating Eve,she is so beautiful”.
“In fact I can’t understand why you made her so beautiful but yet you made her incredibly stupid,I can’t understand why she’s beautiful but yet so dumb?
Then God said to Adam “well I made her that way so that she would like you”!🤣

You know, these could be ripe for a comeback, now that masks have become the height of fashion.
I found another picture of this product that immediately makes it clear how it works. It's like metallic tinted sunglasses. Now... maybe they could made one suitable for use in welding?" https://i.pinimg.com/originals/28/34/37 ... 220ca2.jpg
Or... for viewing eclipses?

You can do anything with duct tape. Looking forward to the pics once they figure out their technical glitch :P
