=========================================== Thanks to Cookie for this story: My two brothers arrived at boot camp together. On the first morning, their unit was dragged out of bed by a drill sergeant and made to assemble outside. "My name's Sergeant Jackson," he snarled. "Is there anyone here who thinks he can whip me?" My six-foot-three, 280-pound, brother raised his hand and said, "Yes sir, I do." The Sergeant replied with a snarl, "I had my eye on you and I was hoping you would say that." The sergeant grabbed him by the arm and led him out in front of the entire group. "Men," he said, "this is my new assistant. Now is there anyone here who thinks he can whip both of us?" ===========================================

=========================================== Thanks to Deeli's Bonehead reports: An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Chris Numme of Port Chester, NY Can't handle a Porsche at 30 miles per hour December 1, 2006 - PORT CHESTER, N.Y. - AP (photo below) This is one big "Uh-Ohh." A mechanic who finished doing minor bodywork on a $500,000 sports car crashed the Porsche Carrera GT into a telephone pole, while he was driving it back to the customer. Mechanic Chris Numme of Port Chester says he and a helper were in the car when he swerved to avoid a truck and lost control. Numme said he was going no faster than 30 miles per hour. He's said he's thankful he and his friend are alive. Numme had fixed a crack in the car's side at his repair shop and was returning the silver sports car to a Greenwich, Connecticut dealer when he crashed. The carís owner is 70-year-old Robert Greenhill, an investment banker from Greenwich. The two-seater limited-edition sports car's engine boasts more than 600 horsepower. The car can accelerate from a standing start to 60 miles per hour in under four seconds. Numme said his insurance company has already located a replacement car. ===========================================

Mycheers Christmas Postcards Huge selection, all of them free postcards.
=========================================== Thanks to Cookie for this observation: My sister decided that marriage is not for her. She has no end of trouble trying to double any recipe in the book. For example her oven doesn't go to 700 degrees. =========================================== A man goes to the doctor with a long history of migraine headaches. When the doctor does his history and physical, he discovers that his poor patient has had practically every therapy known to man for his migraines and STILL no improvement. "Listen," says the Doc, "I have migraines, too and the advice I'm going to give you isn't really anything I learned in medical school, but it's advice that I've gotten from my own experience. When I have a migraine, I go home, get in a nice hot bathtub, and soak for a while. Then I have my wife sponge me off with the hottest water I can stand, especially around the forehead. This helps a little. Then I get out of the tub, take her into the bedroom, and even if my head is killing me, I force myself to have sex with her. Almost always, the headache is immediately gone. Now, give it a try, and come back and see me in six weeks." Six weeks later, the patient returns with a big grin. "Doc! I took your advice and it works! It REALLY WORKS! I've had migraines for 17 years and this is the FIRST time anyone has ever helped me!" "Well," says the physician, "I'm glad I could help." "By the way, Doc," the patient adds, "I fixed that dripping tap in your bath." ============================================ Get a Dish Network for as low as $19.99/month Free HD & DVR Equipment & Free installation Free Dish Network Satellite TV Systems We are nationwide Dishnetwork retailer! http://www.AFreeDish.com ================================== From the Tech Support Pits: From: Buddy Re: CD drive causes a restart Dear Webby: I began to have this problem recently. When i put a disk into the CD write drive to store info or make a duplicate copy the computer shuts down immediately and restarts itself. is the drive bad or is it another problem. Thanks Buddy131j Dear Buddy Yes, I would say the drive is bad. You can try re-installing the burner software, but I have a hunch that may be a waste of time. Have FUN!

It is the first traffic-solution technology that monitors patterns on rural roads and city streets as easily as on highways. Developed by IntelliOne of Atlanta, Ga., the TrafficAid system could not only help guide drivers around tie-ups, but also tell emergency responders where accidents are or how effectively an evacuation is unfolding by pinpointing clusters of cell phones. "Unlike sensors and other equipment along major freeways that are expensive and take years to deploy, our system takes advantage of existing cellular networks in which wireless carriers have already invested billions of dollars," s aid National Science Foundation (NSF) awardee and IntelliOne CEO Ron Herman, a former engineer and computer scientist.

After spending 3-1/2 hours enduring the long lines, surly clerks and insane regulations at the department of motor vehicles, a lady stopped at a toy store to pick up a gift for her son. She brought her selection, a baseball bat, to the cash register. "Cash or charge," the clerk asked. "Cash," she snapped, then apologizing for her rudeness. She explained, "I've spent the afternoon at the department of motor vehicles and I am way past sane." The clerk kindly asked, "Shall I gift wrap the bat, or are you going back there?" ======================================== To find a real bugler for military funerals, browse to Buglers Pervert Alerts are now at http://posty.net/pervertalerts/ ======================================== From Richard: Dear Webby, You or Deeli mentioned that "The boneheads who released the training baby into the girl's care, knowing that she was driving home with it, should be charged with attempted murder!" Since the young lady didn't have a driver's license, perhaps they could be forgiven for assuming that she would not be driving. However, the next student that they gave a similar doll to might have a valid license and a similar accident could have occurred. We do have a long term problem when some woman with a valid driver's license and a real baby are driving and the baby starts to cry. We can only hope that she doesn't drive until the baby has cried many times and she realizes that she does not have to respond immediately. I do know someone with four children between infant and 14 years old who was paying more attention to the child in the back seat than the car in front of her until it was too late to avoid an accident when that car stopped at a traffic light. Perhaps we should just keep stupid people from driving but then the stupid girl didn't have a license and should not have been driving. Maybe the answer is seatbelts and airbags for the rest of us. Richard Dear Richard maybe the answer is a LOT more chlorine in the gene pool? The whole idea of measuring the response time between a baby crying and the mother responding, is absolutely moronic to start out with! Instant response just creates a spoiled and irresponsible brat, that sooner or later winds up in jail. The ONLY action that requires an instant response, is when a sibling is throwing the crying baby out the window. Anything else can wait until it is safe to pull over to the curb. THAT is what the morons should have taught the kids, not tell them that they will be graded on how efficient they are in pointing kids towards jail. Have FUN! DearWebby
