The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not. --- Thomas Jefferson Computer Science is no more about computers than astronomy is about telescopes. --- E. W. Dijkstra
I had a pastor friend who went into the pulpit one Sunday morning wearing a pair of new bifocals. The reading portion of the glasses improved his vision considerably, but the top portion of the glasses didn't work so well. In fact he was experiencing dizziness every time he looked through them. He explained to the congregation that the new glasses were causing problems, "I hope you will excuse my continually removing my glasses," he said. "You see when I look down I can see fine, but when I look at you, it makes me sick."

A lady who was speeding had an officer pull her to the side of the road. She didn't have her seat belt on so as soon as she stopped, she quickly slipped it on before the officer got to her window. After talking to her about speeding, the officer said, "I see you are wearing your seat belt. Do you believe in wearing it at all times?" "Yes, I do, officer," she replied. "Well," asked the officer, "do you always do it up with it looped through your steering wheel?"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Democratic Party MP's in Korea Korean MPs brawl in parliament Brawling MPs used sledgehammers to force their way into a parliamentary committee room in South Korea. Opposition members struggle with security guards /PA Opposition Democratic Party members wanted to get into the room to block a free-trade agreement with the US. Ruling Grand National Party members fought back with fire extinguishers and fists as the country's parliament descended into chaos. Scuffles broke out as dozens of opposition MPs and their aides attempted to push their way in to the committee room. TV footage showed people from both sides shoving, pushing and shouting in a crowded hall at the National Assembly building, amid a barrage of flashing cameras. Ruling Grand National Party members use fire extinguishers to try to keep opposition Democratic Party members from entering a parliamentary committee room Protesters used a sledgehammer and other tools to tear open the room's wooden doors, only to find barricades of furniture set up inside as a second line of defence. The opposition attempt to block the free-trade deal failed, and ten GNP MPs introduced the bill to the committee. Supporters say it will not only expand trade but also further cement ties between Washington and Seoul. Opponents claim it would cause pain to key sectors in both nations: agriculture in South Korea and the motor industry in the US.
One day a State Trooper was pulling off an expressway near Chicago. When he turned onto the street at the end of the ramp, he noticed someone at a chicken place getting into his car. The driver placed the bucket of chicken on top of his car, got in and drove off with the bucket still on top of his car. So the trooper decides to pull him over and perform a community service by giving the driver his chicken. So he pulled him over, walked up to the car, pulled the bucket off the roof and offered it to the driver. The driver looks at the trooper and says, "No thanks, I just bought some."
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Robin Re: Sym Link in Windows Dear Webby Is there a way to make a symbolic link between folders in Windows, like you do on Unix or Linux? Thanks Robin Dear Robin There is, but it is not implemented well and trashes your file system if you move folders around. Just make a shortcut. Go into the folder above it, highlight the target folder, right-click it and select: "Make A Shortcut". Then drag that shortcut to the folder, from where you want to sort files into the target folder. If you name that shortcut "!!!", it will be alphabetically on top and always easy to find. Have FUN!

Thanks to Kim for this story: My husband was once employed in the printing division of a large manufacturing firm. One morning, word came from the top that some visiting VIPs would be touring the plant in just a few minutes. All production was immediately shut down as employees scrambled to quickly tidy up the work place. When the appointed lookout yelled, "Here they come!" fifty fingers that were poised over fifty machine start-up buttons pressed down in unison and blew every fuse in the building.

Teddy came thundering down the stairs, much to his father's annoyance. "Teddy," he called, "how many more times have I got to tell you to come downstairs quietly? Now, go back upstairs and come down like a civilized human being." There was a silence, and Teddy reappeared in the front room. "That's better," said his father, "now in future will you always come down stairs like that." "Good!," said Teddy. "I slid down the railing."
