Bridge Building . . .

A man was walking along a California beach and stumbled across an old lamp.  He picked it up and rubbed it and out popped a genie.  The genie said, OK, OK.  You released me from the lamp, blah blah blah.  This is the fourth time this month and Im getting a little sick of these wishes, so you can forget about three.  You only get one wish. 

The man sat and thought about it for a while and said, Ive always wanted to go to Hawaii but Im scared to fly and I get very seasick.  Could you build me a bridge to Hawaii so I can drive over there to visit? 

The genie laughed and said, Thats impossible.  Think of the logistics of that.  How would the supports ever reach the bottom of the Pacific?  Think of how much concrete . . . how much steel.  No, think of another wish. 

The man said OK and tried to think of a really good wish.  Finally, he said, Ive been married and divorced four times.  My wives always said that I dont care and that Im insensitive.  So, I wish that I could understand women . . . know how they feel inside and what theyre thinking when they give me the silent treatment . . . know why theyre crying, know what they really want when they say nothing . . . know how to make them truly happy . . . . 

The genie said, You want that bridge two lanes or four?
