>>>JOKE of the MONTH<<<
Is Google a woman? That’s what one of my friends asked me recently. I said, “I don’t know.” He then in turn say, “Well I’m asking you that because Google is like a woman. It won’t let you finish a sentence without coming up with other suggestions for you.”
A lawyer runs a stop sign and gets pulled over by a sheriff. He thinks he’s smarter being a big shot lawyer from New York and has a better education than a sheriff from West Virginia. The sheriff asks for license and registration. The lawyer asks, “What for?” The sheriff responds, “You didn’t come to a complete stop at the stop sign.” The lawyer says, “I slowed down and no one was coming.” “You still didn’t come to a complete stop. License and registration please,” say the sheriff impatiently. The lawyer says, “If you can show me the legal difference between slow down and stop, I’ll give you my license and registration and you can give me the ticket. If not, you let me go and don’t give me the ticket.” The sheriff says, “That sounds fair, please exit your vehicle.” The lawyer steps out and the sheriff takes out his nightstick and starts beating the lawyer with it. The sheriff says, “Do you want me to stop or just slow down?”

The solution to the puzzle is in thinking “outside of the box”. Most of us try to solve the puzzle while in the paradigm that we created…we have to stay within the boundaries of the 9 dots…the “box”. Never did we say you had to keep the straight lines within these imaginary boundaries. Only when we have a mind shift or a “Paradigm Shift” can we solve the puzzle
