Tim decided to tie the knot with his longtime girlfriend.
One evening, couple of months after the honeymoon, he was assembling some loads for an upcoming hunt.
His wife was standing there at the bench watching him. After a long period of silence she finally speaks ..."Honey, I've been thinking ... now that we are married, I think it's time you quit hunting, shooting, hand loading, and fishing. Maybe you should sell your guns and boat.
Tim gets this horrified look on his face.
She says, "Darling, what's wrong?"
"There for a minute you were sounding like my ex-wife."
"Ex-wife!", she screams, "I didn't know you were married before!"

I'd rather be lucky than good any day
There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.
Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

My wife and always had a deal--whoever wanted out had to take the kids. Apparently neither of us wanted to take on that challenge.

Ignorance is a long way from stupid, but left unchecked, can get there real fast.
