  • 2009 Question of the Year. If a siamese twin commits murder, does his brother get punished, too? “Let’s say you wanted to throw the evil sibling in jail. There’s no way to do that without incarcerating the good one as well (unless you convinced him to take a job as a prison guard). Is there any way around this problem?”
  • Football Time. “According to a Wall Street Journal study of four recent broadcasts, and similar estimates by researchers, the average amount of time the ball is in play on the field during an NFL game is about 11 minutes.”
  • Murphy’s Law Calculator. “Find out in advance whether you will be able to successfully repair your VCR, get to a meeting on time, impress your date, or be a success at any activity whatsoever!”
  • Space Shuttle For Sale: Cheap. “Here is a recession bargain: the space shuttle. NASA has slashed the price of the 1970s-era spaceships to $28.8 million apiece from $42 million.”

    Donna – If it went to heaven, I’d buy one right away. It would be the best $28.8 million I’ve ever spent. Thankfully, Jesus made a way to heaven for us for free!
