My dog loves to go in the car.  She is so happy when I tell her she can go along.  Normally she rides in the back.  But today my wife wasn’t with me so she happily moved up to the passenger front seat.  The problem...

I was asked if I was ready for the world to end tonight.  It is the 21st of December 2012 and the end of the Mayan Calendar.  I asked just when this would occur.  “At midnight” was the answer.  So I asked, “Will that be...
