### Your Age Test

It takes less than a minute....... Work this out as you read...Be sure you don't read the bottom until you've worked it out! This is not one of those waste of time things, it's fascinating AND fun.

1. First of all, pick the number of times a week that you would like to have chocolate. (more than once but less than 10)

2. Multiply this number by 2 (Just to be bold)

3. Add 5

4.. Multiply it by 50 I'll wait while you get the calculator.................

5. If you have already had your birthday this year add 1755.... If you haven't, add 1754.

6. Now subtract the four digit year that you were born.

Now you should have a three digit number ..

The first digit of this was your original number (i.e. how many times you want to have chocolate each week).

The next two numbers are .........
YOUR AGE!.....Oh YES, it is!!!!!

### Interesting Test

Below are four (4) questions and a bonus question. You have to answer them
instantly. You can't take your time, answer all of them immediately. OK?

Let's find out just how clever you really are.

Ready? GO!!! (scroll down)

First Question:
You are participating in a race. You overtake the second person. What
position are you in?

Answer: If you answered first, then you are absolutely wrong!
If you overtake the second place, you are second!

Try not to screw up in the next question.
To answer the next question, don't take as much time as you took for the
first question.

Second Question:
If you overtake the last person, what position are you?

Answer: If you answered that you are second to last, then you are wrong
again. Tell me, how can you overtake the LAST Person?

You're not very good at this! Are you?

Third Question:
Very tricky math! Note: This must be done in your head only.
Do NOT use paper and pencil or a calculator. Try it.

Take 1000 and add 40 to it. Now add another 1000. Now add 30. Add another
1000. Now add 20. Now add another 1000 Now add 10. What is the total?

Scroll down for answer.

Did you get 5000?
The correct answer is actually 4100.
Don't believe it? Check with your calculator! Today is definitely not your
day. Maybe you will get the last question right?

Fourth Question:
Mary's father has five daughters: 1. Nana, 2. Nene, 3. Nini, 4. Nono.
What is the name of the fifth daughter?

Answer: Nunu?
NO! Of course not.
Her name is Mary. Read the question again

Okay, now the bonus round:
There is a mute person who wants to buy a toothbrush. By imitating the
action of brushing one's teeth he successfully expresses himself to the
shopkeeper and the purchase is done.
Now if there is a blind man who wishes to buy a pair of sunglasses, how
should he express himself?

He just has to open his mouth and ask, so simple.

### Never outsmart a woman

There was a man who had worked all his life, had saved all of his money, and was a real miser when it came to his money. Just before he died, he said to his wife, "When I die. I want you to take all my money and put it in the casket with me. I want to take my money to the afterlife with me."
And so he got his wife to promise him with all her heart that when he died, she would put all of the money in the casket with him
Well, he died. He was stretched out in the casket; his wife was sitting there in black, and her friend was sitting next to her.
When they finished the ceremony, just before the undertakers got ready to close the casket, the wife said, "Wait just a minute!"
She had a box with her; she came over with the box and put it in the casket. Then the undertakers locked the casket down, and then rolled it away.
So her friend said, "Girl, I know you weren't fool enough to put all that money in there with your husband."
The loyal wife replied, "Listen, I'm a Christian, I can't go back on my word. I promised him that I was going to put that money in that casket with him."
"You mean to tell me you put that money in the casket with him!!!!?"
"I sure did" said the wife. "I got it all together, put it into my account and wrote him a cheque. If he cash it, he can spend it."

Women Are Smarter Than Men
Due to inherit a fortune when his sickly, widower father died, Charles decided he needed a woman to enjoy it with.
Going to a singles' bar, he spotted a woman whose beauty took his breath away.
"I'm just an ordinary man," he said, walking up to her, "but in just a week or two, my father will die and I'll inherit 20 million dollars."
The woman went home with Charles, and the next day she became his stepmother.

Understanding Women (A Man's Perspective)
I know I'm not going to understand women. I'll never understand how you can take boiling hot wax, pour it onto your upper thigh, rip the hair out by the root, and still be afraid of a spider.

Words
A husband read an article to his wife about how many words women use a day ...
30,000 to a man's 15,000.
The wife replied, "The reason has to be because we have to repeat everything to men.
The husband then turned to his wife and asked "What?"

Stupid And Beautiful
A man said to his wife one day, "I don't know how you can be so stupid and so beautiful all at the same time."
The wife responded, "Allow me to explain. God made me beautiful so you would be attracted to me; God made me stupid so I would be attracted to you!"

The Beast
Husband and wife were in the midst of a violent quarrel, and hubby was losing his temper.
"Be careful," he said to his wife. "You will bring out the beast in me."
"So what?" his wife shot back. "Who's afraid of a mouse?"

Coffee
A man and his wife were having an argument about who should brew the coffee each morning.
The wife said, "You should do it, because you get up first, and then we don't have to wait as long to get our coffee."
The husband said, "You are in charge of cooking around here and you should do it, because that is your job, and I can just wait for my coffee."
Wife replies, "No, you should do it, and besides, it is in the Bible that the man should do the coffee."
Husband replies, "I can't believe that, show me."
So she fetched the Bible, and opened the New Testament and showed him the top of several pages, that it indeed says....

So be careful everybody, don't have this habit anymore. If u really wants to waiting inside yr car, make sure u spending more petrol; don't off yr engine n winding down the window. If at night time, don't on any light if u waiting inside, cos this will become the target for robber. My friend told me a case in Melaka, a college girl waiting her aunty inside car with light without door locking.

### 我們工作的目的是為了什麼？

`功勞是老闆的，錢財是子女的，官爵是一時的，只有身體是自己的。「不要把一生心血精華賣給公司，留給家人的卻是破銅爛鐵」。維豐在新竹科學園區上班，每天不管工作到幾點，他一定開車回台北的家，每個人聽了都好羨慕他們夫妻如此恩愛。季擇聽了這種事，頗不以為然，說他每天雖然應酬到很晚，一定回家睡覺，他也是新好先生，怎麼沒人讚美他？鼓勵做老公做爸爸的男人回家，是一樁推行很久的運動，有些男人就把「回家」當作指標，但他卻忘了，他的心有沒有一起跟著回家。我曾經在美國住過一陣子，他們的社區裡，每到下班時間，就看到一家家的先生開車回來。回來後可沒閒著，衣服一換，不是除草修自行車，就是遛狗整理庭院。夜幕低垂，全家一起看電視，很早就上床睡覺，很少人會去喝酒應酬。週末假日，不是在院子裡除草、烤肉，或在車庫辦個小型舊物拍賣，就是全家出門旅行。他們回家，是把心和身和愛，都一起放在家裡。  反觀我們這兒，賣命加班、努力應酬、拚命喝酒、用勁唱歌，把實驗室當家、把PUB當家、把朋友家當家,你的家只是摸黑回去了，管他是沙發是地板是浴室，倒頭就睡。醒來迷迷糊糊的，梳洗一番又去上班了，沒跟太太說上一句話，沒跟孩子打過一個照面，搞不好跑錯人家，你都不知道。做爸的如此，兒女上行下效也如此，做媽的心想，你們都不回來，我也出去吧！ 「家」就變成了一個空殼子。不論你家誰是一家之主，不妨率先示範.... ※每週最多一晚去應酬。  不管是談生意，跟朋友聊天，或是跟主管籠絡感情，一週最多一次，其餘時間應該留給伴侶談話，和孩子聊天，跟家人建立感情。※即使晚歸，也要清醒。  醉酒開車要重罰，真是一個福音，至少大家都不敢在夜裡喝酒。最好是連計程車也拒載酒醉之人，說不定能挽救不少形同陌路的婚姻。因為沒喝酒，回到家，至少還能清醒的跟家人說說話。 ※回家以後，不以自己會賺錢自誇，照樣樂在家事中。 家事是全家人的事，在外奔波雖然很辛苦，但是在家忙碌，也不輕省。互相體貼，付出愛心，隨手做家事※不要把一生心血精華賣給公司，留給家人的卻是破銅爛鐵。  為公司賣命，贏得高薪與高職，確實很有成就感。但隨著你的退休被淘汰，這些都成過眼雲煙。 然而，你給家人的愛，卻是一輩子不會變質，他們會回報你以更多的愛。   Be home with your heart. 看完這一封信，不知道你是否也和我一樣有相同的感觸，我們每個人似乎都將工作的順位給顛倒了，總是工作第一、應酬第二，忽略了家庭的重要性。甚至未婚的年輕男女，也許因為過於賣命的工作，而失去了許多結交男女朋友的時間與機會，而已婚的男女,亦常常忽略了家人的重要性，不要以為結了婚就是保證，殊不知現在離婚率這們高，每五對夫妻，就有一對離婚。 也許我們都應該停下來想一想，我們工作的目的是為了什麼？是為了改善目前的生活，讓家人過好日子呢？是為了要=C`

### Liver

`The main causes of liver damage are:1. Sleeping too late and waking up too late are the main cause.2. Not urinating in the morning.3. Too much eating.4. Skipping breakfast.5. Consuming too much medication.6. Consuming too much preservatives, additives, food coloring, andartificial sweetener.7. Consuming unhealthy cooking oil. As much as possible reducecooking oil use when frying, which includes even the best cooking oilslike olive oil.  Do not consume fried foods when you are tired, exceptif the body is very fit.8. Consuming overly done foods also add to the burden of liver.Veggies should be eaten raw or cooked 3-5 parts. Fried veggies shouldbefinished in one sitting, do not store.We should prevent this without necessarily spending more. We just haveto adopt a good daily lifestyle and eating habits. Maintaining goodeating habits and time condition are very important for our bodies toabsorb and get rid of unnecessary chemicals according to "schedule."Because:Evening at 9 - 11pm : is the time for eliminating unnecessary/toxicchemicals (de-toxification) from the antibody system (lymph nodes).Thistime duration should be spent by relaxing or listening to music. Ifduring this time a housewife is still in an unrelaxed state such aswashing the dishes or monitoring children doing their homework, thiswill have a negative impact on health.Evening at 11pm -  1am : is the de-toxification process in the liver,and ideally should be done in a deep sleep state.Early morning 1 - 3am : de-toxification process in the gall, alsoideally done in a deep sleep state.Early morning 3 - 5am : de-toxification in the lungs. Therefore therewill sometimes be a severe cough for cough sufferers during this time.Since the de-toxification process had reached the respiratory tract,there is no need to take cough medicine so as not to interfere withtoxin removal process.Morning 5 - 7am : de-toxification in the colon, you should empty yourbowel.Morning 7 - 9am : absorption of nutrients in the small in testine, youshould be having breakfast at this time. Breakfast should be earlier,before 6:30am, for those who are sick. Breakfast before 7:30am is verybeneficial to those wanting to stay fit. Those who always skipbreakfast, they should change their habits, and it is still better toeat breakfast late until 9 - 10am rather than no meal at all.Sleeping so late and waking up too late will disrupt the process ofremoving unnecessary chemicals. Aside from that, midnight to 4am is thetime when the bone marrow produces blood. Therefore, have a good sleepand don't sleep late.`
