German scientists dug 50 meters underground and discovered small pieces of copper. After studying these pieces for a long time, Germany announced that the ancient Germans 25,000 years ago had a nation-wide telephone network. Naturally, the British government was not that easily impressed. They ordered their own scientists to dig too. 100 meters down, they found small pieces of glass and they soon announced that the ancient Brits 35,000 years ago already had a nationwide fiber network. Scottish scientists were outraged. They dug 200 meters underground, but found absolutely nothing. So they concluded that the bulge in the kilts of the ancient Scotts 55,000 years ago, must have been cellphones.

From the Tech Support Pits: From: Joanne Re: Can't re-install Windows Dear Webby, I have been a fan of yours for years and have used a lot of the advice you have given. Now I have a problem I hope you can help me with. My computer is so slow, takes about 15 or 20 minutes just to get it up and running. I was told to reboot it. I tried to put the original CD's in but it would not work. Then someone told me I had to dump it all first, but wasn't told how. Can you help me. I am to the point I don't want to even use it as it is just too slow. Thanks for any help you can give me. Joanne Dear Joanne First, back up your addresses, bookmarks, pictures and music, either onto CDs, DVDs or onto the net. Don't bother backing up programs. You have to re-install them anyway, but make sure you print the registration numbers for every program that you paid for! To format and re-install Windows you first have to tell it to consider the CD drive as the first choice of boot devices. To do that you need to get into the BIOS Set-up. When you turn it on, you first see a black screen with just the message which Function key to press to get into the setup. It shows that for only a second or so. The Support at your computer maker can also tell you. In the BIOS set the first boot device to the CD, then put the Windows Set-Up CD into the drive, and do a full power-off reboot. Once you have done that and boot up with the Windows Set-Up CD, it will ask you if you REALLY want to permanently dump the mess on the hard drive. When you tell it to go ahead, it does that. Permanently. You can't undo that if you remember later, that you forgot to back up your half finished tax return. After formatting, it will install Windows and your computer will again be just as fast as on the day you bought it. Have FUN! DearWebby
A fellow decides to take off early from work and go drinking. When he finally gets home, he starts tiptoeing up the stairs. Halfway up the stairs, he falls over backwards. An empty pint bottle in his back pocket broke, and carved up his buttocks. A few minutes later, as he was undressing, he noticed blood, so he checked himself out in the mirror and noticed the injury. He repaired the damage as well as he could under the circumstances and went to bed. The next morning, his head was hurting, and his rear was hurting, and he was hunkering under the covers trying to think up some good story, when his wife came into the bedroom. "Well, you really tied one on last night," she said. "Where'd you go?" "I worked late," he said, "and I stopped off for a couple of beers." "A couple of beers? That's a laugh," she replied. "You got plastered !" "What makes you so sure I got drunk last night, anyway?" he asked. "Well," she replied, "my first big clue was when I got up this morning and found a bunch of Band-Aids stuck to the mirror."
Daily tip from Saving Your Raises I recently got my annual raise and have been putting it into savings. If i don't use it, it's like I never got it! A friend of mine read somewhere (not sure where) that a person has been living on the same salary for 10 years by doing this! So yes, it can be done!

The other night I was waiting for a date getting ready to go out. She sat there and put on eyebrow pencil, eye shadow, eyeliner, eyelashes, mascara, toner, blush and lipstick and all kinds of stuff I don't even know the names of, then turned to me and said, "Does this look natural?"

During a phone conversation, my niece mentioned that she was taking a psychology course at university. "Oh, great," I said, "Now you'll be analyzing everyone in the family." "No, no," she replied. "I don't take abnormal psychology until next semester."
