Bill Clinton & Beer Cans
When Bill Clinton and Hillary Rodham first got married, Bill said, "I am
putting a box under the bed. You must promise never to look in it."
In all their 30 years of marriage, Hillary never looked. However, on the
afternoon of their 30th anniversary, curiosity got the best of her and she
lifted the lid and peeked inside.
In the box were 3 empty beer cans and $81,874.25 in cash. She closed the
box and put it back under the bed.
Now that she knew what was in the box, she was doubly curious as to why
there even was such a box with such contents.
That evening, they were out for a special anniversary dinner.
After dinner, Hillary could no longer contain her curiosity and she
confessed, saying, "I am so sorry. For all these years, I kept my promise
and never looked into the box under our bed. However, today the temptation
was too much and I gave in. But now I need to know, why do you keep the 3
beer cans in the box?
Bill thought for a while and said, "I guess after all these years you
deserve to know the truth. Whenever I was unfaithful to you, I put an
empty beer can in the box under the bed to remind myself not to do it again."
Hillary was shocked, but said, "Hmmm, Jennifer, Paula and Monica. I am
very disappointed and saddened by your behavior. However, since you are
addicted to sex, I guess it does happen and I guess 3 times is not that bad
considering your problem."
Bill thanked her for being so understanding. They hugged and made their
peace. A little while later Hillary asked Bill, "So why do you have all
that money in the box?"
Bill answered, "Well, whenever the box filled up with empty cans, I took
them to the recycling center and redeemed them for cash
“The Matrix is a system, Neo, and that system is our enemy. When you are inside, you look around, what do you see? Businessmen, teachers, lawyers, carpenters, the very minds we are trying to save. Until we do, these people are part of that system and that makes them our enemies. You have to understand that most of these people are not ready to be unplugged and many are so hopelessly dependent on the system, they’ll fight to protect it. “The Matrix is everywhere. It is all around us. Even in this very room. You can see it when you look out your window or when you turn on your television. You can feel it when you go to work, when you go to church, when you pay your taxes. It is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth.”
- Morpheus, in the movie, “The Matrix”
