A UNC grad stood on the side of the road hitch hiking on a very dark night in the middle of a storm. The thunder was rolling and no cars passed. The storm was so strong, he could hardly see a few feet ahead of him. Suddenly he saw a car come towards him and stop.
The man, without thinking about it, got in the car and closed the door to realize that nobody was behind the wheel. The car started slowly. He looked at the road and saw a curve ahead. Scared, he started praying, and begged for his life. He hadn't come out of shock, when just before he hit the curve, a hand appeared through the window and moved the wheel. The man, paralyzed in terror, watched how the hand appeared every time before a curve.
He gathered his strength, got out of the car and ran to the nearest town. Wet and in shock, he ran into...

1) WHAT IS THE LONGEST WORD THAT IS TYPED USING ONLY THE LEFT HAND ..................(IF YOU TYPE CORRECTLY)?
2) Forward I am heavy, backwards I am not. What am I?
3) Around the mill, there is a walk, After the walk, there is a key. What Am I?
4) This is a most unusual paragraph. How quickly can you find out what is wrong with it? It's so usual, you would think nothing is wrong with it. In fact, nothing is wrong with it! It's unusual, though. Study it. What is so unusual about it? Do you know?
In the little town of Wittenberg, Germany, on this day, October 31, 1517, no one seemed to notice the priest nailing his challenge to debate on the church door; but within the week, copies of his theses would be discussed throughout the surrounding regions; and within a decade, Europe itself would be shaken by his simple act. Later generations would mark martin Luther's nailing of the 95 theses on the church door as the beginning of the Protestant Reformation.

A man brought a limp dog into the Veterinary Clinic. As he lay the dog on the table, the doctor pulled out her stethoscope, placing it on the dog's chest.
After a moment or two, the Vet shook her head sadly and said, "I'm sorry, sir but your dog has passed away."
"What?" screamed the man. "How can you tell? You haven't done any testing on him or anything. I want another opinion!"
With that, the Vet turned and left the room. In a few moments, she returned with a Labrador Retriever.
The Retriever went right to work, checking the poor dead dog out thoroughly. After a considerable amount of sniffing, the Retriever sadly shook his head and barked, "Woof! Woof!".
The Veterinarian then took the Labrador out and returned in a few moments with a cat, who also checked out the poor dog on the table. As had his predecessor, the cat sadly shook his head and went, "Miaow, Miaow."
He then jumped off the table and ran out of the room. The Veterinarian handed the man a bill for $600...
The dog's owner went ballistic.
"$600! Just to tell me my dog is dead? This is outrageous!"
Again, the Vet shook her head sadly and explained, "If you had taken my word for it, it would have only been $50, but no, you wanted testing... So with the Lab Work and the Cat Scan..."
A UNC grad* was having some physical problems and his doctor told him that he had to drink warm water one hour before breakfast. At the end of a week he returned and the doctor asked if he was feeling better. The man said that he actually felt worse. "Did you drink warm water an hour before breakfast each day?" "No," replied the grad, "All I could do was about 15 minutes!"

There were 540 passengers aboard that September evening, sailing from Athens to an Aegean Island. An hour out, the wind came up and the temperature suddenly dropped. Five hours into the voyage, passengers felt the ferry's engines surge, and most of them assumed they were getting close to their destination. They were wrong. The crew was frantically trying to steer clear of this small, rocky island, two miles from their destination. Tragically, the ferry plowed right into those rocks. It took only 38 minutes to sink. Rescue vessels got there quickly, but eighty people died that night, and it did not have to happen. There was a functioning lighthouse, sitting atop that rock, warning vessels away. It could be seen for several miles around. For some reason, the ferry just kept heading straight for the rocks. MORE!!!
In just a few weeks, Americans will celebrate Thanksgiving, a holiday that people of all faiths observe. But between stuffing the turkey and watching football, we ought to make sure our children and grandchildren understand the Christian roots of this holiday, which are often downplayed in school...
