Dear Webby: Response Challenge 

Good Morning,   !

Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other.
 John F. Kennedy

Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that
comes from bad judgment.
--- Socratex


 Food for thought...

 You are driving along in your car on a wild, stormy night. You pass
 by a bus stop, and you see three people waiting for the bus:
 1. An old lady who looks as if she is about to die.
 2. An old friend who once saved your life.
 3. The perfect man (or) woman you have been dreaming about.

 Which one would you choose to offer a ride to, knowing that there
 could only be one passenger in your car.

 Think before you continue reading.

 This is a moral/ethical dilemma that was once actually used as
 part of a job application.

 You could pick up the old lady, because she is going to die, and
 thus you should save her first; or you could take the old friend
 because he once saved your life, and this would be the perfect
 chance to pay him back.

 However, you may never be able to find your perfect dream
 lover again.

 The candidate who was hired! (out of 200 applicants) had no
 trouble  coming up with his answer. I love this, I may actually
 use it  sometime for an interview situation.


 He simply answered: "I would give the car keys to my old friend,
 and let him take the lady to the hospital. I would stay behind
 and wait for the bus with the woman of my dreams."

There was this city doctor who started a practice
in the countryside.

He once had to go to a farm to attend to a
sick farmer who lived there.

After a few housecalls he stopped coming to
the farm.

The puzzled farmer finally phoned him to
ask whats the matter, didn't he like him
or somethin'.

The doctor said, "No, its your ducks at
the entrance... Every time I enter the
farm, they call me a quack!"

=========================================== Thanks to Deeli's Bonehead reports: An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to an irresponsible cat owner in Chongqing City Dangerous Cat April 30, 2007 - Chongquing City, China - Ananova A Chinese woman knocked out by a cat falling from a block of flats is to sue 200 residents because none will admit responsibility. Tang Meirong, 53, of Chongqing city, was sent to hospital after being hit by the cat, reports Chongqing Business News. "I was walking on the footpath under the building, and suddenly a heavy object hit my head. I remember nothing afterwards," she said. After regaining consciousness, Tang called police but the building manager told officers it would be very difficult to identify the cat owner. Tang says she will sue all 200 residents whose flats face the street if none of them come forward to take responsibility. The cat was killed by the fall, or dead when it was thrown out a window. ===========================================

=========================================== Thanks to Susan for sending this picture: Dear Webby, I thought you might like to see a different kind of animal. I watched this little guy walk across a road near me and start to climb into the tree. We have a holiday house on Raymond Island in the Gippsland Lakes, Victoria, Australia. There is a large population of Koala's living on the island and they are quite friendly and roam around near the housing estate as well as in the bush further out on the island. I still wouldn't try patting them, as much as they look so cute, they have those long claws for climbing and protecting themselves. Susan =========================================== An elderly couple sat through a porno movie twice. They didn't get up to leave until the theater was ready to close for the night. "You folks must've enjoyed the show," the usher said. "Disgusting," said the old lady. "It was revolting," her husband added. "Then why did you sit through it twice?" the usher asks. "We had to wait until you turned up the house lights," the old lady replied. "We couldn't find my panties, and his teeth were in them!" ===========================================

Since I used it to cut down on spam, my business nose dived and even friends won't send email to me any more. What do you recommend? Dietmar Dear Dietmar Not ALL Zone Alarm Response Challenges contain trojans, only the fake ones. Unless you have just sent a letter to somebody with that silly nuisance on their machine, dump it without clicking on anything! I would recommend that you get rid of that as fast as possible. Anybody, who has been infected by any fake response challenge, will automatically assume that yours is fake too. Considering that that particular response challenge frequently malfunctions, that makes it look even more suspicious. People can't tell if yours has a routine malfunction, or if it is a fake one, and so they assume the worst. My MailWasher filters all response challenges into the trash, unread, and blacklist that address. That is the only safe way to deal with that nuisance. As you noticed, I did not waste my time answering by email, since I would never see your response challenge anyway, and you would never get my answer. Have FUN!

Miles Hilton-Barber braved snowstorms, freezing temperatures and torrential downpours during his 54-day journey under the supervision of sighted co-pilot Richard Meredith-Hardy. ''It's the fulfillment of an amazing dream,'' Hilton-Barber, 58, told reporters at Sydney's Bankstown airport. ''I've wanted to be a pilot since I was a kid. Now I'm totally blind and I've had the privilege of flying more than halfway around the world.'' Hilton-Barber, who lost his eyesight to a hereditary condition about 20 years ago, is hoping the trip will raise $2 million for the charity Seeing is Believing, which works for the prevention of blindness in developing countries. He took to the skies from Biggin Hill air base in south London on March 7 in a microlight aircraft, which looks like a cross between a tricycle and a motorized hang-glider, with the aid of an audio device that reads out navigational information such as air speed and altitude. Hilton-Barber also has conquered Mount Kilimanjaro and Mont Blanc, run marathons in the Sahara and Gobi deserts, and even attempted to reach the South Pole, hauling a sledge over 250 miles of Antarctic ice.

Daily tip from Cheap Cleaner For large cleaning projects, try TSP (TriSodiumPhospahte) TSP used to be the main active ingredient in most detergents, but got a bad name because it promoted underwater weed growth in canals, rivers and lakes, into which improperly treated sewage was dumped into. What was bad was not the TSP, but Millions of people using a lot of it all year long. It was simply too much of a good thing. TSP is still a powerful phospate fertilizer, and your tomatoes will love it, when you dump the used cleaning water near them. You won't find TSP at the supermarket, where all the overpriced and nicely packaged retail cleaners are. You can find it at building and industrial paint suppliers, in the PAINT section. Painters use it, after thinning it down with a lot of water, to clean dirty walls before painting. TSP is dirt cheap. At Canadian Tire for example, a gallon jug of concentrate is CDN $4.95. For cleaning previously painted stuff, use 40 parts of water to one part TSP. For a really greasy stove vent hoods or car engines, use one part water and one part TSP.

Two men were at the bar talking about marriage. "I'm seriously thinking about tying the knot," said Jim. His buddy, Bob told him, "You may wish to consider contacting a local support group. With the divorce rate so high in America, a new organization has been formed, called, "Marriage Anonymous." "Oh really?" Jim said, "What do they do?" "Whenever a man feels like getting married, they send over a woman wearing a torn house-coat, with curlers in her hair and cream on her face, and she nags at him until after breakfast.".Bob replied. "What do they do for women, who want to get married?" Jim asked. "I have been divorced five times, so they send me." Bob replied. =============================================

After pouring over the little drawers full of cards he approached the librarian again, wanting to know how to spell "tequila." "T-e-q-u-i-l-a," spelled the librarian, and Little Johnny went back to his search. A short time later he came to the desk, looking quite upset. "I just can't find it." he said. "What book are you looking for?" the librarian asked. "Tequila Mockingbird." ========================================
