Getting Much Smarter


Three UNC grads are relaxing and fishing.
Out of the blue, they catch
a mermaid who
begs to be set free in return for granting
each of them
a wish. Now one of the guys
just doesn't believe it, and says:

"OK, if you can really grant wishes, then
double my I.Q." The mermaid says: "Done."

Suddenly, the guy starts reciting Shakespeare
flawlessly and analyzing it with extreme insight.
The second guy is so amazed he says to the
mermaid: "Triple my I.Q." The mermaid says:

The guy starts to spout out all the mathematical
solutions to problems that have been stumping
all the scientists of varying fields: physics,
chemistry, etc.

The last guy is so enthralled with the changes
in his friends, that he says to the mermaid:
"Quintuple my I.Q." The mermaid looks at

him and says: "You know, I normally don't
try to change people's minds when they make
a wish, but I really wish you'd reconsider."

The guy says: "Nope, I want you to increase
my I.Q. times five, and if you don't do it, I won't
set you free."

"Please," says the mermaid "You don't know
what you're asking...it'll change your entire
view on the universe... won't you ask for
something else...a million dollars, anything?"
But no matter what the mermaid said, the guy
insisted on having his I.Q. increased by five
times it's usual power. So the mermaid sighed
and said: "Done."

And he became a N.C.State graduate.

* * * Four important things to KNOW: #1) For ALL (Americans, Muslims, Jews, Catholics, Hindus, Buddhist, Asians, Presbyterians, Europeans, Baptist, Brazilians, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc.) have sinned & fall short of the glory of God. #2) For the wages of above (see #1) are DEATH (Hell, eternal separation from God, & damnation) but the Gift (free & at no charge to you) of God (Creator, Jehovah, & Trinity) is Eternal Life (Heaven) through (in union with) Jesus Christ (God, Lord, 2nd Person of The Trinity, Messiah, Prince of Peace & Savior of the World). #3) For God so greatly loved & dearly prized the world (Americans, Muslims, Jews, Catholics, Hindus, Buddhist, Asians, Presbyterians, Europeans, Baptist, Brazilians, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc.) that He even gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, that whosoever (anyone, anywhere, anytime - while still living) believes (trust in, relies on, clings to, depends completely on) Him shall have eternal (everlasting) life (heaven). #4) Jesus said: "I am THE WAY, THE TRUTH, & THE LIFE. No one (male/female - American, Muslim, Jew, Catholic, Hindu, Buddhist, Asian, Presbyterian, European, Baptist, Brazilian, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc. ) comes (arrives) to the Father (with GOD in Heaven) EXCEPT BY (through) ME (no other name). *** This wonderful loving GOD gives you the choice - - - (Rev. 3:20) {Please note that church membership, baptism, doing good things, etc. are not requirements for becoming a Christian - however they are great afterwards!!!} *** Jesus said, "Wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction (Hell, damnation, eternal punishment), and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life (Heaven, eternal happiness, forever with God), and only a few find it.

God loves you so much that He died for you!!!
