The software engineering field is staffed primarily by men; the ratio of male to female software engineers is on the order of 15 to 1. This makes it pretty easy for women to find potential mates among their peers. However, software types have a well-earned reputation for being, well, a little strange. While discussing the prospect of working in the software industry, one woman commented to another: "The odds are good, but the goods are odd."
The new Librarian decided that instead of checking out children's books by writing the names of borrowers on the book cards herself, she would have the youngsters sign their own names. She would then tell them they were signing a "Contract" for returning the books on time. Her first customer was a second grader, who looked surprised to see a new Librarian. He brought four books to the desk and shoved them across to the Librarian, giving her his name as he did so. The Librarian pushed the books back and told him to sign them out. The boy laboriously printed his name on each book card and then handed them to her with a look of utter disgust. Before the Librarian could even start her speech he said, scornfully, "That other Librarian we had, was a lot smarter. She learned how to write herself!"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Jochen Naumann, 37 of Leipzig, Germany German tourist made false bomb threat at Disney World ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- A German tourist has been arrested on charges of making a false bomb threat while visiting Walt Disney World. A report from the Orange County Sheriff's Office says 37-year-old Jochen Naumann of Leipzig, Germany, was going through the security checkpoint at the entrance of the Magic Kingdom Sunday when he told a Disney employee he had two bombs in his back pack. The report says the Disney employee questioned Naumann and he repeated the threat. A sheriff's deputy had a bomb-sniffing dog check Naumann's bag and no explosive devices were found. The report says Naumann claimed he was only joking. He was arrested on a charge of making a false report of a bomb and taken to the Orange County Jail. Jail records show bond was set at $10,000.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Jai Re: Is there a fix for a dead mouse? Dear Webby My mouse quit working. Is there a fix or is it dead forever? Thanks, Jai Dear Jai All mice do eventually die, usually after the warranty expires. If it is just the cord, and the mouse lights up when you mess with the cord, it can be replaced easily, if one has a bunch of dead mice to salvage cords from. Sometimes you can just shorten the cord. It usually goes bad in the first few inches from the mouse. But if that is not the case, about all you can do is replace it. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Use Maps as Wrapping Paper This wrapping paper idea came from one of my friends years ago. Use outdated atlases and maps for colorful, cool-looking, and good quality wrapping paper. I use mostly for birthday gifts, but cut out a silhouette of Santa in his sleigh and/or reindeers and attach for Christmas gifts. If you like this idea but don't have any maps to use, pick up some free ones at travel and visitor's centers the next time you are traveling.

THINK OUTSIDE YOUR BOX You are driving along in your car on a wild, stormy night. You pass by a bus stop, and you see three people waiting for the bus: 1. An old lady who looks as if she is about to die. 2. An old friend who once saved your life. 3. The perfect man (or) woman you have been dreaming about. Which one would you choose to offer a ride to, knowing that there could only be one passenger in your car. Think before you continue reading. This is a moral/ethical dilemma that was once actually used as part of a job application. You could pick up the old lady, because she is going to die, and thus you should save her first; or you could take the old friend because he once saved your life, and this would be the perfect chance to pay him back. However, you may never be able to find your perfect dream lover again. The candidate who was hired (out of 200 applicants) had no trouble coming up with his answer. THINK ABOUT IT BEFORE YOU SCROLL DOWN. THINK THINK THINK WHAT DID HE SAY? He simply answered: "I would give the car keys to my old friend, and let him warm up while taking the old lady to the hospital. I would stay behind and wait for the bus with the woman of my dreams."

An Englishman, a Scotsman and an Irishman were trying to get in to see the Olympics without tickets. So they got to the stadium during one of the main events and discussed how they would be able to attend without paying. The Englishman walked around the stadium and saw a pole lying on the ground and picked it up. He walked to the entrance and said, "Peter. England. Pole throwing." The guards let him in without hesitation. The other two saw this and are amazed. The Scotsman saw a manhole. He picked up the cover, carried it under his arm to the entrance and said, "Mc Gregor. Scotland. Discus throwing." The guards let him in also. The Irishman was very frantic, since both his friends were inside. He walked around the stadium and found a roll of barbed wire. He picked it up, walked to the entrance and said, "Murphy. Ireland. Fencing."
