A riddle

I've seen this riddle before, but don't think I ever got the answer.

What’s greater than God, more evil than the Devil, the poor have it, the rich need it, and if you eat it, you’ll die? An interesting fact regarding this riddle: They told this riddle to a group of kindergartners and a group of Stanford students. 80% of the kindergartners solved the riddle within 2 minutes. 80% of the Stanford students NEVER FIGURED IT OUT!!!

Hint: Try to think on the level of a kindergartner.
Can't get it? To get the answer, e-mail this post 10 times... just kidding.


NOTHING is greater than God,
NOTHING is more evil than the Devil,
the poor have NOTHING,
the rich need NOTHING,
if you eat NOTHING, you’ll die!

It may not be "right" or PC to categorize people, but it is a normal thing we, as humans, do. We make as many categories as we find we need to.

Black, White, Asian, Latino, Tall, Short, Ghetto, Professional, Gay, Straight, Friend, Superior, Follower, Virgin, Slut, Butch, Pansy, Macho, Wimp, Crazy, Dependable, Mean, Freaky, Immature, etc...

And the categories aren't always so perfect, we always have someone or something that doesn't quite seem to fall into one category or another.

Today, I just came across a "new" category for sexual preference. I got dragged into "BingBox", another one of those "profile" sites (like MySpace, Xanga, MiGente, etc..), and they have for sexual preference their categories were:

- Hetero
- Holebi
- I don't know (yet)

Okay, "hetero" and "I don't know (yet)", whatever... But "holebi"?

They lumped homo, lesbian and bisexual all into one group with a new made up word! I've heard of other words used to name a group, like "BILAGA" (Biseual Lesbian And Gay Alliance), but that was the name of the group, not a category of the type of people.

And what about transexual and transgendered, they get left out? Will the category change to "holebitra"?

The lines get blurred more and more everyday.

Not that there's anything wrong with that...

"I come in the name of Jesus, Bitch!"

This guy is amazing. You just have to watch this:

"The Spirit of Truth"

He's like a "gangster, prison preacher". There is even a follow up video.

If you don't end up loving God, Jesus and the Bible, he might just "bust a cap in your ass".
