Nostalgia isn't what it used to be. --- Peter De Vries By the time we've made it, we've had it. --- Malcolm Forbes
During class, the chemistry professor was demonstrating the properties of various acids. "Now I'm going to drop this silver coin into this glass of acid. Will it dissolve?" "No sir," one student called out. "No?" queried the professor. "Perhaps you can explain why the silver won't dissolve in this particular acid." "Because if it would, you wouldn't have dropped it in!"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Belgian sports minister Michel Daerden Olympic drunk is sports minister A drunk fan of Olympic competitors from Belgium has been identified as the country's sports minister. A loud Belgian fan had been shouting out during a doubles match between Argentinian and Belgian players. Eventually Argentine tennis ace David Nalbandian lost his temper and told him to be quiet. But other Belgian supporters recognised the "very drunk" man as sports minister Michel Daerden, media in the country have reported. Daerden was also spotted drunk when cheering on the Belgian hockey team from the stands, say reports. One Belgian fan, Marc Demeyer, said: "He was drunk as a skunk. It's an embarrassment for the nation."
Two American women stopping at the Hotel in Lisbon wanted another chair in their room. The steward who answered their ring could not understand English. One of the women pointed to the only chair in the room, then tried pantomime, seating herself in an imaginary chair. With a knowing smile, the steward bowed and motioned for her to follow him. At the end of the corridor, he stopped, smiled, and bowed again, and pointed triumphantly to the door of the Ladies Room.
A doctor examined a woman and took her husband aside. "I don't want to alarm you," he said, "but I don't like the way your wife looks at all." "Me neither, Doc." said the husband. "But she's a great cook and real good with the kids."
Still available! Step By Step PC Tune-Up From the Tech Support Pits: From: Debby Re: leave computer on at night? Hi Webby, I leave my computer on 24/7. Should I turn it off at night? How much electricity is it using to keep it on? What is better for the machine. Love your advice and daily newsletter and jokes. This is not the first time I have picked your brain and probably won't be the last! Thanks Webby. Debby Dear Debby Yes, it is much better to turn your computer off at night. It saves electricity both directly and indirectly, since you don't need AC to get rid of the 500 Watts of heat it produces. So you actually save 1 KW per hour. Turning it off also saves wear and tear on the hard drive. Have FUN! DearWebby

On the first day of school, the principal made his rounds, and heard a terrible commotion coming from one of the classrooms. He rushed in and spotted one boy, taller than the others, who seemed to be making the most noise. He seized the lad, dragged him to the hall, and told him to wait there until he was excused. Returning to the classroom, the principal restored order and lectured the class for half an hour about the importance of good behavior. When he was finished, he said, "Now, are there any questions?" One girl stood up timidly and said, "Please, sir, may we have our teacher back?"

The tiresome jury selection process continued, each side hotly contesting and dismissing potential jurors. Another man was called for his question session. "Property holder?" "Yes, I am, Your Honor."
