Give a man a fire and he is warm for a day. Set a man on fire and he is warm for life.

Arkansas was named by the French who don't pronounce the s at the end of the word.  Like Voulez-vous parler fran├žais the last letters are silent so Arkansa is the pronunciation.  You don't pronounce the s in Illinois either.
