Default Interesting facts

A friend e-mailed this to me.

READ THE QUESTIONS BEFORE LOOKING AT THE ANSWERS BELOW!!!!!!!

Question 1:
If you knew a woman who was pregnant, who had 8 kids already, three who were deaf, two who were blind,one mentally retarded, and she had syphilis, would you recommend that she have an abortion?

Question 2:
It is time to elect a new world leader, and only your vote counts. Here are the facts about the three leading candidates.

Candidate A -
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 whiskey every evening.

Candidate C -
He is a decorated war hero. He's a vegetarian, doesn't smoke, drinks an occasional beer and never cheated on his wife.

Which of these candidates would be your choice? Decide now.









ANSWERS
Question 1: If you said yes, you just killed Beethoven.

Question 2: Candidate A is Franklin D. Roosevelt. Candidate B is Winston Churchill. Candidate C is Adolph Hitler

The one about Beethoven was posted here awhile back...


the second one on the other hand is new (to me)... and quite frankly, amazing.

Hmmmm. Candidate C is misleading. Hitler was married during the last moments of his life. So I think most people don't see him as being married.

That's what threw me off. He in fact was a bit of a womenizer. While dating Eva Braun he kept the company of a few women. One of them being an Austrian Movie Star.

Yet in terms of a leader, he was great for his country. He took his country out of a depression, and led them to being a superpower.

The way in which he did it though is the drawback. IMHO, he was no more than a common thug with a loud voice. Unfortunatly people obeyed him and sacrificed millions of lives to further the "sepreme race". Bah.

I concur with what you say about the way he did it. That was bad. Did you have to read "The Prince" by Machiavelli, while in high school though?
