Meetings are indispensable when you don't want to do anything. --- John Kenneth Galbraith
A busload of new recruits arrived at the reception center, and was greeted by an old drill sergeant. He began his speech: "Welcome to Fort Dix, men. From now on, I want you to think of the Army as your family and as your home." Hearing this, one of the recruits broke formation, sat down and lit a cigarette. "Private, what on earth are you doing?" asked the sergeant. "Well," said the private, "I'm just making myself at home. Like you said, this is my home." Thinking fast, the sergeant said, "Son, you listen good, and you're right. This is your home. So, as soon as you finish that cigarette, I want you to report to the mess hall to help your mother with the dishes for the next two weeks."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to a burglar in Wichita, Kansas Sent in by Ross Burglar flees in boxers, with jeans left in washer A Kansas burglar apparently likes to be clean - but isn't so good about clean getaways. Police in Wichita say it appears a man broke into a house Friday night to wash his clothes but fled in boxers, with his jeans still in the washer. Here's what happened: A woman reported that she returned home, found her basement laundry room in disarray and went upstairs to call her husband. That's when a man wearing only blue boxer shorts came upstairs, grabbed her purse and ran out the door. Police Sgt. Diane Varnell says the woman chased him and recovered her purse, but the burglar is still on the loose. http://www.bakersfield.com/917/story/525830.html
Every morning for years, at about 11:30, the telephone operator in a small Sierra-Nevada town received a call from a man asking the exact time. One day the operator summed up nerve enough to ask him why the regularity. "I'm foreman of the local sawmill," he explained. "Every day I have to blow the whistle at noon so I call you to get the exact time." The operator giggled, "That's really funny," she said. "All this time we've been setting our clock by your whistle.
A minister told his congregation, "Next week I plan to preach about the sin of lying. To help you understand my sermon, I want you all to read Mark 17." The following Sunday, as he prepared to deliver his sermon, the minister asked for a show of hands. He wanted to know how many had read Mark 17. Every hand went up. The minister smiled and said, "Mark has only 16 chapters. I will now proceed with my sermon on the sin of lying."

Step By Step PC Tune-Up From the Tech Support Pits: From: Harry Re: IE crashing Dear Webby I run my machine as clean as fresh out of the box, but about two or three times a day, IE crashes. What is the cause of that? Harry Dear Harry the cause of that is sloppy programming. There is nothing you can do about it. It happens to me too, and seems to be related to some of the piece-meal bits of the SP3 that Microsoft rams down our hard drives with the regular updates. I don't think they are purposely trying to poison XP, it seems to be just routine klutziness. Just use FireFox. If you visit exactly the same sites in the same time period with FireFox, there won't be a single browser crash. For those sites that require IE, you can use Maxthon, the Chinese IE clone. It seems to be more stable than the original IE. Have FUN! DearWebby

The owner of a business was confused about paying a bill, so he asked his secretary for some mathematical help... "If I were to give you $200, minus 14%, how much would you take off?" he asked her. The secretary replied, "Everything but my earrings!"

I have a friend who filled his car with gas at a self-service gas station. After he had paid and driven away, he realized that he had left the gas cap on top of his car. He stopped and looked and, sure enough, it was lost. Well, he thought for a second and realized that other people must have done the same thing, and that it was worth going back to look by the side of the road since even if he couldn't find his own gas cap, he might be able to find one that fit. Sure enough, he hadn't been searching long when he found a gas cap. He tried it on, and it went into place with a satisfying click. "Great," he thought, "I lost my gas cap, but I found another one that fits. And this one's even better, because it locks..."
