Reasons why the English language is hard to learn:

     The bandage was wound around the wound.

        The farm was used to produce produce.

         The dump was so full that it had to refuse more  refuse.

         We must polish the Polish furniture.

        He could lead if he would get the lead out.

       The soldier decided to desert his dessert in the desert.

         Since there is no time like the present, he thought   it was time to present the present.

         A bass was painted on the head of the bass drum.

         When shot at, the dove dove into the bushes.

       I did not object to the object.

        The insurance was invalid for the invalid.

       There was a row among the oarsmen about how to row.

        They were too close to the door to close it.

       The buck does funny things when the does are present.

         A seamstress and a sewer fell down into a sewer line.

         To help with planting, the farmer taught his sow to sow.

        The wind was too strong to wind the sail.

         After a number of injections my jaw got number.

         Upon seeing the tear in the painting I shed a tear.

        I had to subject the subject to a series of tests.

         How can I intimate this to my most intimate friend?

         There is no egg in eggplant nor ham in hamburger; neither apple nor pine in pineapple.

    English muffins weren't invented in England or French   fries in France.

    Sweetmeats are candies while sweetbreads, which aren't sweet, are meat.

       We take English for granted. But if we explore its   paradoxes, we find that quicksand can work slowly,    boxing rings are square and a guinea pig is neither from Guinea nor is it a pig.

    And why is it that writers write but fingers don't   fing, grocers don't groce and hammers don't ham?

       If the plural of tooth is teeth, why isn't the   plural of booth beeth?  Or, one goose, 2 geese? So one moose, 2 meese? One index, 2 indices?

    Doesn't it seem crazy that you can make amends but  not one amend.  If you have a bunch of odds and ends and get rid of  all but one of them, what do you call it?

  If teachers taught, why didn't preachers praught?

  If a vegetarian eats vegetables, what does a humanitarian eat?

  In what language do people recite at a play and play at a recital?

  Ship by truck and send cargo by ship?

  Have noses that run and feet that smell?

  How can a slim chance and a fat chance be the same, while a wise man and a wise guy are opposites?

  You have to marvel at the unique lunacy of a  language in which your house can burn up as it burns  down, in which you fill in a form by filling it out  and in which an alarm goes off by going on.

 English was invented by people, not computers,    and it reflects the creativity of the human race (which, of course, isn't a race at all).

 That is why, when the stars are out, they are  visible, but when the lights are out, they are   invisible

Subject: Brazil is the sure winner!
Date: Wednesday, June 26, 2002 4:07 AM

By simple deduction , Brazil  is the sure Winner !


Brazil last won the world cup in 1994.

Before that they won it in 1970.

Add 1970 and 1994, it equals 3964.

Germany last won in 1990.

Before that they won in 1974.

Add 1990 and 1974, it equals 3964.

Argentina last won the world cup in 1986.

Before that they won it in 1978.

Add 1978 and 1986, it equals 3964.

So going by this logic, The winner of the 2002 world

cup is the same as the 3964 - 2002 = 1962 world cup.

The 1962 world cup was won by Brazil.

Now the Best Part !!!

Israeli fans too have reason to rejoice:

Israel has never won the world cup so we'll probably
win it in the year 3964.
