Speaking of things DIFFICULT TO UNDERSTAND reminds me of the story of the man who was walking on the beach one day and he came across a bottle. He kicked it and a "Genie” came swooping out. The “Genie” thanked him for releasing him from the bottle and told the man he was so thankful that he would grant him any wish he wished to have granted. The man said, “Well, I have always wanted to go to Hawaii, but I am afraid of water, and afraid to fly, so I couldn’t go. Would you please make a bridge from California to Hawaii so I could drive there?” The “Genie” rubbed his forehead and said, “Look I am really grateful that you let me out of that little bottle, but it’s a bit ridiculous to ask me to grant such a wish. It would take me weeks, perhaps months, to have all that dirt hauled in to make a road across the ocean.” The man said, “Nevertheless, that is my wish.!” The “Genie” asked, “Is there anything else you would like me to do for you instead?” The man thought a few minutes and said, “All right, there is something else, I have always wished to be able to UNDERSTAND WOMEN?” Again the “Genie” rubbed his head and thought for a few minutes and asked, “Do you want a two lane, or a four lane causeway to Hawaii?”
