1…God won’t ask what kind of car you drove;
He’ll ask how many people you drove who didn’t have transportation.
2…God won’t ask the square footage of your house,
He’ll ask how many people you welcomed into your home.
3…God won’t ask about the clothes you had in your closet,
He’ll ask how many you helped to clothe.
4…God won’t ask what your highest salary was,
He’ll ask if you compromised your character to obtain it.
5…God won’t ask what your job title was,
He’ll ask if you performed your job to the best of your ability.
6…God won’t ask how many friends you had,
He’ll ask how many people to whom you were a friend.
7…God won’t ask in what neighborhood you lived,
He’ll ask how you treated your neighbors.
8…God won’t ask about the color of your skin,
He’ll ask about the content of your character.
9…God won’t ask why it took you so long to seek Salvation,
He’ll lovingly take you to your mansion in heaven, and not to the gates of Hell.
10…God won’t ask how many people you forwarded this to,
He’ll ask if you were ashamed to pass it on to your friends.
Happy moments, praise God.
Difficult moments, seek God.
Quiet moments, worship God.
Painful moments, trust God.
Every moment, thank God.

Now this is something most of us would love to have. Mr Perry, 59, can eat whatever he likes – including unlimited pies, burgers and desserts – and never get fat. He cannot put on weight because of a condition called lipodystrophy that makes his body rapidly burn fat.
Mr Perry regularly eats Chinese takeaways, chips, chocolate and clotted cream, but his weight has remained stable at 11st 12lb. He told the Sun that he used to be a chubby child, but at age 12 the fat dropped off “almost over night”.

It’s an ability he discovered in himself as a young man 20 years ago.
“I had a stroll like this in the park with somebody and I saw the ice and I thought, what would happen if I go in there. I was really attracted to it. I went in, got rid of my clothes. Thirty seconds I was in,” Hof said. “Tremendous good feeling when I came out and since then, I repeated it every day.” It was the moment that Hof knew that his body was different somehow: He was able to withstand fatally freezing temperatures.

1. If they want to loan you money, tell them you just filed for bankruptcy and you could sure use some money.
Ask, “How long can I keep it? Do I have to ever pay it back, or is it like the other money I borrowed before my bankruptcy?”
2. If you get one of those pushy people who won’t shut up, just listen to their sales pitch.
When they try to close the sale, tell them that you’ll need to go get your credit card. Then, just set the phone down and go do laundry, shopping or whatever.
See how long that commission based scum waits for you to get your credit card.
3. If they start out with, “How are you today?”
say, “Why do you want to know?” Or you can say, “I’m so glad you asked, because no one seems to care these days and I have all these problems, my sciatica is acting up, my eyelashes are sore, my dog just died….”
When they try to get back to the sales process, just continue on with telling about your problems.
4. If the person says he’s Joe Doe from the ABC Company, ask him to spell his name, then ask him to spell the company name, then ask where it is located.
Continue asking personal questions or questions about the company for as long as necessary.
5. This one works better if you are male:
Telemarketer: “Hi, my name is Julie and I’m with Dodger & Peck Services….
You: “Hang on a second.” (few seconds pause) “Okay, (in a really husky voice) what are you wearing?”
6. Crying out, in well-simulated tones of pleasure and surprise,
“Julie!! Is this really you? I can’t believe it! Julie, how have you BEEN?”
Hopefully, this will give Julie a few brief moments of terror as she tries to figure out where the heck she could know you from.
7. Say, “No,” over and over. Be sure to vary the sound of each no, and keep an even tempo even as they’re trying to speak. This is the most fun if you can keep going until they hang up.
8. If MCI calls trying to get you to sign up with their Family and Friends plan, reply, in as sinister a voice as you can muster,

10. Let the person go through their spiel, providing minimal but necessary feedback in the form of an occasional “Uh-huh, really, or, “That’s fascinating.”
Finally, when they ask you to buy, ask them to marry you. They get all flustered, but just tell them you couldn’t give your credit card number to someone who’s a complete stranger.
11. Tell them you work for the same company they work for.
Telemarketer: “This is Bill from Widget & Associates.”
You: “Widget & Associates!! Hey I work for them too. Where are you calling from?”
Telemarketer: “Uh, Dallas, Texas.”
You: “Great, they have a group there too? How’s business/the weather? Too bad the company has a policy against selling to employees! Oh well, see ya.”
12. Tell the Telemarketer you are busy and if they will give you their phone number you will call them back.
If they say they are not allowed to give out their number, then ask them for their home number and tell them you will call them at home (this is usually the most effective method of getting rid of Telemarketers).
If the person says, “Well, I don’t really want to get a call at home,” say,
“Yeah! Now you know how I feel.” (smiling, of course…)
