Two questions...

Q1: If you knew a woman who was pregnant, who had eight kids already, three who were deaf, two who were blind, one mentally retarded, and she had syphillis; would you recommend that she have an abortion?

Read the next question before scrolling down to the answer of this one.

Q2: It is time to elect the world leader, and your vote counts. Here are the facts about the three leading candidates:

Candidate A: He associates with crooked politicians and consults with astrologists. He's had two mistresses. He also chain smokes and drinks 8 to 10 martinis a day.

Candidate B: He was kicked out of office twice, sleeps until noon, used opium in college and drinks a quart of whisky every
evening.

Candidate C: He is a decorated war hero. He's a vegetarian, doesn't smoke, drinks an occasional beer and hasn't had any
extramarital affairs. Which of these candidates would be your choice?

Decide first, no peeking, then scroll down for the answer.
















Candidate A is Franklin D. Roosevelt
Candidate B is Winston Churchill
Candidate C is Adolf Hitler

and by the way... answer to the abortion question - if you said yes, you just killed Beethoven.

Sent by a friend to me. Makes you think, doesn't it?

What we are really arguing with these debates is whether people create history/circumstances or do they happen as a part of the cycle of the universe and we react to them. If we kill baby Hitler, could not another one have come into power? If we kill Beetovhen's mother, could not another great composer have come about? Were Beetoven or Hitler really the ONLY souls around that time that could have done what they did????
