During a business trip to Boeing’s Everett, Washington factory, I noticed several 747 and 777 airliners being assembled.
Before the engines were installed, huge weights were hung from the wings to keep the planes balanced. The solid-steel weights were bright yellow and marked “14,000 lbs.”
But what I found particularly interesting was some stenciling I discovered on the side of each weight.
Imprinted there was the warning: “Remove before flight.”
Doctor: “Would you have the money if I said you needed an operation?”
Patient: “Would you say I needed an operation if you thought I didn’t have the money?”
A father was waiting nearby while his young son prayed silently before going to bed. Suddenly the boy burst out laughing.
“Reggie!” scolded his father, “Why are you laughing during prayer?”
“But Dad,” the boy answered, “you told me that prayer is talking to God as to a friend, and I just told him a joke.”
