A young man went to his father one day to tell him that he wanted to get married. His father was happy for him. He asked his son who the girl was and he told him that it was Samantha, a girl from the neighborhood. With a sad face, the old man said to his son, "I'm sorry to say this son but I have to, the girl you want to marry is your sister, but please don't tell your mother". The young man again brought 3 more names to his father but ended up frustrated because the response was still the same. So he decided to go to his mother. "Mama I want to get married but I can't marry any of the girls that I love because dad said they are my sisters and I must not tell you". His mother said to him with a smile, "Don't worry my son, you can marry any of those girls. You are not his son anyway, but please don't tell him".
The mathematics behind our life span.
God created the dog and said: "Sit all day by the door of your house and bark at anyone Who comes in or walks past. For this, I will give you a life Span of twenty years." The dog said: "That's a long time to be barking. Howabout only ten years and I'll give you back the otherten?" So God agreed.
God then created the monkey and said: "Entertain people, do tricks, and make them laugh. For this, I'llgive you a twenty-year life span."The monkey said: "Monkey tricks for twenty years?That's a pretty long time to perform. How aboutI give you back ten like the Dog did?" And God agreed.
God then created the cow and said: "You must go intothe field with the farmer all day long and suffer under the sun, have calves and give milk to support the farmer's family. For this, I will give you a lifespan of sixty years." The cow said: "That's kind of a tough life you wantme to live for sixty years. How about twenty and I'llgive back the other forty?" And God agreed again.
God created man and said: "Eat, sleep, play, marry and enjoy your life. For this, I'll give you twenty years." But man said: "Only twenty years? Could you possibly give me my twenty,the forty the cow gave back, the ten the monkey gave back, and the ten the dog gaveback; that makes eighty, okay?" "Okay," said God, "You asked for it."
So that is why for our first twenty years we eat,sleep, play and enjoy ourselves. For the next forty years we slave in the sun to support our family. For the next ten years we do monkey tricks to entertain the grandchildren. And for the last ten years we sit on the front porchand bark at everyone. Life has now been explained to you.
