A stupid man's report of what a clever man says can never be accurate, because he unconsciously translates what he hears into something he can understand. --- Bertrand Russell In literature as in love, we are astonished at what is chosen by others. --- Andre Maurois
A man and woman are having marriage problems, and decide to end their union after a very short time together. After a most brief attempt to reconcile, the couple goes to court to finalize their break-up. The judge asks the husband, "What has brought you to the point that you are now at, where you are not able to keep this marriage together?" The husband says, "In the six weeks we've been together, we haven't been able to agree on one thing." The wife says, "Six and a half weeks!"
The US has succeeded in building a computer able to solve any strategic or tactical problem. Military leaders are assembled in front of the new machine and instructed to feed a difficult tactical problem into it. They describe a hypothetical situation to the computer and then ask the pivotal question: Attack or Retreat? The computer hums away for an hour and then comes up with the answer: YES. The generals look at each other, somewhat stupefied. Finally one of them submits a second request to the computer: YES WHAT? Instantly the computer responded: YES SIR.

An enormously wealthy 65-year-old man falls in love with a young woman in her twenties and is contemplating a proposal. "Do you think she'd marry me if I tell her I'm 45?" he asked a friend. "Your chances are better," said the friend, "if you tell her you're 90." Thanks to Deeli's Bonehead reports: An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to a Deborah Thompson, 54, in Marysville, CA Too silly to be out without supervision Published Tue, Nov 13, 2007 -- The Associated Press MARYSVILLE, Calif. (AP) A 54-year-old woman was recovering in the hospital after being hit by a Union Pacific freight train south of Marysville. Deborah Thompson told authorities afterward that she drank a bottle of whiskey before she wandered to the railroad tracks and tried to wave the train to a stop. When asked why, she told Yuba County sheriff's deputies she was just being silly. The train hit her and knocked her 20 to 30 yards. Thompson suffered head injuries and a fractured thigh bone but was conscious and talking after the accident.

From the Tech Support Pits: From: Lindsay Re: Maxthon browser Dear Webby Some friends recommended the Maxthon browser to me, and you briefly mentioned it once too. What's it all about and how safe is it? Lindsay Dear Lindsay Some people call the "made in China" Maxthon browser a cheap "skin" for hysterical fanatics, who don't like Microsoft, others call it a sloppy copy of Internet Explorer 5. Considering that it uses genuine IE5 or IE6 error pages, it is probably closer to the second. It seems to be using the IE6 browser engine and interpretes fancy HTML the same way as IE6, not like FireFox, which still has some problems with CSS styles. Having tabs for loaded pages on top, instead of in the Windows status line, is considered fashionable by some people, but can be quite a nuisance, for example, if you have some spreadsheets open and need to jump to a certain web page for more data. Some parts of Maxthon don't seem to work at all, like for example setting YOUR preferred home page. It lets you go through the motions of setting it up, but when you hit HOME, it goes to THEIR home page anyway. That makes me wonder what else the Chinese copy-cats left out, and how secure it really is. Maxthon is fine for sites, that you know and trust. If you have any doubts at all about how safe a site is, better use IE6 for that potentially unsafe site. Have FUN! DearWebby

A group of cannibals are hired for programming. Their manager told them, you are doing good work, but please, don't touch your collegues and eat them. We have a canteen, you can eat there. Ok, so the cannibals promised. After 6 Weeks, the manager spoke to them again: Ok we are satisfied with your work and everything, and you are behaving very well. By the way, we are missing a cleaning woman, has somebody touched her? The cannibals denied. After he left, the chief of the cannibals asks "Who is the idiot who ate that cleaning women?" One of the cannibals admitted that he did. Are you out of your mind? For six weeks now have been eating VP's and Senior managers and nobody is taking notice. How can you be so stupid as to eat a working person?

Deeli's Kudos November 12, 2007 - Perth, Scotland - UPI A 96-year-old Scotsman says a serious illness convinced him to ask his longtime girlfriend to become his bride. "I had three life-threatening illnesses, with which she was with me all the time, so I felt I owed her a bit more than just being my bidie-in," Bill Rodger told The Scotsman, using the Lowland Scots expression for a live-in partner. Rodger and Liz Stewart, 78, who have been a couple for 11 years, plan to tie the knot Saturday. The guests include Rodger's six great-grandchildren. Stewart said when Rodger proposed she had to think about it overnight. She has been a widow for 16 years. "Bill didn't get down on one knee or propose or he'd never have got up again," Stewart said. The Rev. Douglas Main of Errol Parish Church, where Stewart is a member of the congregation, is to do the honors at Rodger's bungalow in Cherrybank near Perth.

Larry goes to see his travel agent. "Hey Larry, going away on holiday again?" "Yes, but I need to ask for something different." "Go ahead ask me." "You know last year you suggested Hawaii and when I returned my wife was pregnant." "Yes, but. . ." "And the year before you suggested Bermuda and when I returned my wife was pregnant." "Yes, but. . ." "And the year before that I went to Bali and when I returned my wife was pregnant." "Yes." "Well! Could you suggest something cheaper this year so that I can bring her with me?"

Heard on Southwest Airlines, just after a very hard landing in Salt Lake City: The flight attendant came on the intercom and said, "That was quite a bump, and I know what y'all are thinking. I'm here to tell you it wasn't the airline's fault, it wasn't the pilot's fault, it wasn't the flight attendant's fault . . . it was the asphalt!"
