A man walking along a California beach was deep in prayer. All of a sudden, he said out loud, Lord grant me one wish. "Suddenly the sky clouded above his head and in a booming voice the Lord said, "Because you have TRIED to be faithful to me in all ways, I will grant you one wish." The man said, "Build a bridge to Hawaii so I can drive over anytime I want. "The Lord said, "Your request is very materialistic. Think of the enormous challenges for that kind of undertaking. The supports required to reach the bottom of the Pacific! The concrete and steel it would take! I can do it, but it is hard for me to justify your desire for worldly things. Take a little more time and think of another wish, a wish you think would honor and glorify me." The man thought about it for a long time. Finally he said, "Lord, I wish that I could understand women. I want to know how they feel inside, what they are thinking when they give me the silent treatment, why they cry, what they mean when they say 'nothing', and how I can make a woman truly happy." The Lord replied, "You want two lanes or four lanes on that bridge?"

Reminds me of... Adam was walking through the garden and calls out to the Lord and says "Lord, I want a companion. One that's caring, understanding, beautiful, smells-good, does anything I wish, and will always love me no matter what I do." The Lord replies, "well son, that will cost you an arm and a leg." Adam "huh,...well, what can I get for a rib!?!"

So, 2400 miles, drive there in 4 days, no problem. A truly WISE man would have wished for an instant teleporter, with him owning the land at both ends. Save all that complaining about the steel, concrete, supports, etc.
