Frustrating People Since 1971.

Small Wonder

‘From the lips of children and infants you have ordained praise because of your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger.’  ~ Psalm 8:2  

  • ‘What’s going on in there to make these babies so stressed?’ [Dr] Anand wondered. Breaking with hospital practice, he wrangled permission to follow his patients into the O.R. ‘That’s when I discovered that the babies were not getting anesthesia,’ he recalled recently. Infants undergoing major surgery were receiving only a paralytic to keep them still.

  • The Vietnamese had declared that they would just sit there, conceding nothing, “until the chairs rot.” Frustrated, Nixon decided to try something new: threaten the Soviet Union with a massive nuclear strike and make its leaders think he was crazy enough to go through with it.’
  • ‘Almost nothing Misha Defonseca wrote about herself or her horrific childhood during the Holocaust was true.  She didn’t live with a pack of wolves to escape the Nazis. She didn’t trek 1,900 miles across Europe in search of her deported parents, nor kill a German soldier in self-defense. She’s not even Jewish.’
  • Since the day I first drove my truck off the lot I have felt a void, a feeling that something was missing–something that I couldn’t quite put my finger on.  Now I found the missing piece: a bacon-scented air freshener.

  • When sexual assaults started rising in Orlando, Fla., in 1966, police officers noticed women were arming themselves, so they launched a firearms safety course for them. Over the next 12 months, sexual assaults plummeted by 88 percent, burglaries fell by 25 percent and not one of the 2,500 women who took the course fired a gun in a confrontation.’
