I think of stupid things like this.What are your stupid thoughts?

When you flip a coin, someone will claim that it landed on heads if heads is showing. Actually it landed ON tails side of the coin and heads is showing.

 

 

Childhood prayer that does not make sense.

"and if I die before I wake, I pray the Lord my soul to take"

You can't die before you wake because if you died you will not wake.

The coin flipping convention is that the side facing up is the way the coin landed.

I have had the coin land 3 times on it's edge, so there are 3 alternatives - not 2.

 

 

The meaning is that if you die in your sleep, the Lord will take you to heaven so that you will awake there.

Never thought about it that way for the prayer one.

A "near miss" actually describes what is more like a "near hit."
