    This is an old one:
    Which animal walks on 4 legs in the morning, 2 legs in the afternoon and 3 legs in the evening?















































    A human. This represents the cycle of life, 4 legs is crawling=young, 2 legs=adult life and walking and 3 legs is walking with a cane.

    You come to a fork in the road; go one way, and you go to hell; go the other and you go to heaven... You don't know which way is which... There are two people at either fork in the road... One person is the devil; the other is an angel... You know that the devil will always lie to you; you know that the angel will always tell you the truth... You can ask both them one question each but the question has to be exactly the same for both of them...

    What question do you ask to ensure you get to heaven...?



    Someone told me this a long time ago and i forgot the answer... If anyone else knows, don't hesitate to chime right in... It's been bugging me for years... :)

    NASA was considering sending canaries into space to study them under zero gravity. The project was cancelled when someone realized that in spite of having sufficient water supplies, they would die of dehydration within hours. Why?

    Isn't that spelled aitch-bone. I don't think aitch alone is a word.
    The answer I was thinking of is "queue". {Waiting in a line.}

    i never heard of aitch-bone, but aitch, alone by itself, is a word... It's the spelling of the letter H...
