On a Continental Flight with sme very "senior" flight attendants crew, the pilot said, "Ladies and gentlemen, we've reached cruising altitude and will be turning down the cabin lights. This is for your comfort and to enhance the appearance of your flight attendants."
"As you exit the plane, make sure to gather all of your belongings. Anything left behind will be distributed evenly among the flight attendants. Please do not leave children or spouses."

The personnel manager was impressing the applicant with the prospective job. "We make parts for microscopes. You'll be required to work with lenses that are a thousandths of an inch thick." "I can handle it," the applicant said, "I used to slice meat in a delicatessen." Thanks to Deeli's Bonehead reports: An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to a Robert Christie, 71, from Vancouver WA Waddling bandit November 12, 2007 - Vancouver, Washington - UPI Court documents showed the suspect in the so-called Waddling Bandit cases involving 20 bank robberies in Washington and Oregon is worth $4 million. Police in Vancouver, Wash., arrested Robert Christie, 71, this week on suspicion of robbing the financial institutions over the last two years, Portland, Ore., television station KPTV reported. A U.S. magistrate said Christie's assets make him a flight risk, ordering that he remain jailed until his hearing next month. Christie's family said it's hard to imagine that he's the bank robber, considering his worth. The FBI had named the thief the "Waddling Bandit" because of the way he walked, the TV station said.

From the Tech Support Pits: From: Martin Re: Deleting Windows Updates Dear Webby Just thought of a question that would maybe be of help to others for once. Is it necessary to keep all of the Windows updates, or can some be safely deleted after a time? I have a bunch of them and can't see holding on to all of them, taking up disk space if so. Thanks, Martin Dear Martin Are you talking about UPDATES, or are you referring to Update UNINSTALL files? The UNINSTALL files are a waste of space and it is safe to delete them. The purpose of those Windows Update uninstall files is being a safety net, just in case an update is too haywire and can't be patched with a further update, and you need to uninstall it. However, Microsoft software writers are building their job security on their ability to patch the patched patches. The only Update, that was so bad, that it was necessary to uninstall it, is IE7. If you are paranoid, keep the uninstall files a week, and get rid of the old ones. Have FUN! DearWebby

When my husband and I arrived at an automobile dealership to pick up our car, we were told that the keys had been accidentally locked in it. We went to the service department and found a mechanic working feverishly to unlock the driver's side door. As I watched from the passenger's side, I instinctively tried the door handle and discovered it was open. "Hey," I announced to the technician, "It's open!" "I know," answered the young man. "I already got that side."

When my 3-year-old son opened the birthday gift from his grandmother, he discovered a water pistol. He squealed with delight and headed for the nearest sink. I was not pleased. I turned to Mom and said, "I'm surprised at you. Don't you remember how we used to drive you crazy with water guns?" Mom smiled and then replied, "Oh, I remember ...."
