A young man was walking along a country road and saw a book a few feet off
the side of the road. He walked over and picked it up. It was a bible.
He started reading a random verse aloud, when all sudden a loud voice from the sky rang
"This is God! You have spoken my word and I will grant you one wish."
Astonished, the young man thought for a moment and then said,
"God, I've always wanted to go to Hawaii, but I have too big a fear of flying, and a boat would
take far too long. Could you build me a bridge from California to Hawaii so I could drive there
and back, please?"
God said: "Do you realize how many miles of steel girders would be necessary?
And how much concrete and asphalt needed? It is an engineering and architectual impossibility!"
