"Always listen to the experts. They'll tell you what can'tbe done and why. Then do it." --- Robert Heinlein
Thanks to Bill for this story: Big Jake was having his long hair styled at the hairdressers when a bus smashed into a car, outside. Draped in a cape, his hair divided with aluminium clips, Jake, an ex-paratrooper corporal raced out to the bus and found the driver unhurt. The car driver, however, was slumped over the wheel, unconscious. Big Jake lost no time in applying his army acquired CPR techniques, including mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. The car driver recovered consciousness several times, but kept passing out again. Soon the ambulance arrived with the paramedics and took over, and Jake returned to his hairdresser's seat. "I just don't understand why he kept passing out," he said to the hairdresser. "I did everything they taught me." "Well, put yourself in the car driver's place," said the hairdresser. "He's driving down the street without a care in the world. The next thing he knows, he's waking up to see some big guy in a green cape, weird hair, with a head full of wires, pounding on his chest and kissing him. You'd pass out too."
A young woman doctor tells the story about her 4 year old daughter. On the way to pre-school, the doctor had left her stethoscope on the car seat, and her little girl picked it up and began playing with it. "Be still, my heart," thought the doctor, "My daughter wants to follow in my footsteps!" Then the child spoke into the instrument, "Wowcome to McDonnahs. Do ya want fwies wif that?"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Adam Garland and Michael Queener at the at the Turney Center prison in Tennessee Inmates Escape, Steal Cigarettes, Return CLIFTON, Tenn. -- The state Department of Correction said two inmates escaped a minimum security prison in southwest middle Tennessee on Nov. 7 to steal cigarettes before returning, WSMV-TV in Nashville reported. Adam Garland and Michael Queener are accused of escaping through a window in their cell at the Turney Center Annex and crawling under a fence. While out, the men stole cigarettes and tobacco products from a convenience store before returning to the prison by going back through the window that they had escaped from, officials at the corrections department said. Officers later discovered the contraband, and an investigation began. Queener was serving a 10-year sentence for aggravated robbery. Garland was serving a five-year sentence for attempted aggravated burglary and theft. The men will now face escape and burglary charges, and minimum security days are over for them.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Moo Mom Re: Can I make an install CD from an installed game? Dear Webby, I was wondering if it would be possible to some how copy a game and all that goes with it that was installed in a friends computer from a game cd or disc , what ever you call them into mine, they no longer have the original cd for me to install the game. can it some how be copied to a blank cd and then installed in mine.? Thanks a lot ... Moo Mom Dear Moo Mom Usually that is impossible. If that was possible, they would sell only ONE CD, and everybody would copy it from the machine it was installed on. They couldn't pay their rent in that case. Look for that game on eBay. There are bound to be some people who have outgrown it and are selling the CD cheaply. Have FUN! DearWebby
A mother was telling her little girl what her own childhood was like. "We used to skate outside on a pond. I had a swing made from a tire; it hung from a tree in our front yard. We rode our pony. We picked wild raspberries in the woods." The little girl was wide-eyed, taking this in. At last she said, "I sure wish I'd gotten to know you sooner!"
Daily tip from Baked-on Food I find the best way to remove any baked on or burned residue in pans or casseroles, or burner rings is to sprinkle on some dry dishwasher detergent, cover with hot tap water and allow to sit overnight. In the morning, it will come off with a wipe of the sponge. I haven't found any other method that works without scrubbing.

A lawyer dies on his 40th birthday and finds himself greeted at the Pearly Gates by a brass band. Saint Peter runs over, shakes his hand and says "Congratulations!!!" "Congratulations for what?" asks the lawyer. "Congratulations for what?!?!?" says Saint Peter. "We're celebrating the fact that you lived to be 760 years old." "But that's not true," says the lawyer. "I was shot on my 40th birthday!." "That's impossible," says Saint Peter. "We've added up the time you billed."

A drunk walks into a bar and says to the bartender (with a drunken slur), "Tarbender, buy everyone in the houshe a drink, pour yourschelf one, and gimme the bill." So the bartender does just that and hands the man a bill for $57. The drunk says, "I haven't got it." The bartender slaps the guy around a few times, then throws him out into the street. The very next day the same drunk walks into the bar and once again says (with a drunken slur), "Tarbender, buy everyone in the houshe a drink, pour yourschelf one, and gimme the bill." The bartender looks at the guy and figures to himself that he can't possibly be stupid enough to pull the same trick twice. So he gives him the benefit of the doubt, pours a round of drinks for the house, has a drink himself and hands the drunk a bill for $67. The drunk says, "I haven't got it." The bartender can't believe it. He picks the guy up, beats the living daylights out of him, then throws him out into the street. The next day the same drunk walks back into the same bar and says (with a drunken slur), "Tarbender, buy everyone in the houshe a drink, gimme the bill." In disgust, the bartender says, "What, no drink for me this time?" The drunk replies, "You? No way! You get too violent when you drink."
