One day our German class was unusually talkative despite repeated warnings, and our teacher was becoming rather exasperated. After what must have been the sixth or eighth warning, he raised his voice to declare, "All right! The next person who talks is going to be severely castigated." The class was then very quiet for a few seconds, at least until a girl in the front row asked the teacher, "Mr. T--, how are you going to do that to a girl?"
Ray and Randy were riding the New York City subway when a beggar approaches them asking for spare change. Randy adamantly rejects the man in disgust. Ray, on the other hand, whips out his wallet, pulls out a five, and gladly hands it to the beggar with a smile. The beggar thanks him profusely and continues on to the other passengers. Randy is outraged by his friend's act of generosity. "What on EARTH did you do that for???" shouts Randy. "You know he's only going to use it on booze!!!" Ray replies, "And we weren't?"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Santiago Contreras, 20, Middletown, NY Fake FBI man targeted police chief's house NEW YORK (UPI) -- Police in a New York town said an attempted home invader posing as an FBI agent was arrested after targeting the wrong man -- the chief of police. Investigators said Santiago Contreras, 20, knocked on the Middletown police chief's door at about 9:18 a.m. EST Tuesday and allegedly flashed a resident alien card, claiming it was his FBI credentials, and displayed a piece of paper he claimed was a search warrant, WABC-TV, New York, reported Wednesday. The police report said Contreras fled on foot after the chief asked to see his identification again and he was later arrested by officers and found to be in possession of a homemade "shank" knife and plastic gloves. Contreras was arrested and charged with attempted robbery, attempted burglary, criminal possession of a weapon, criminal possession of a forged instrument and criminal impersonation.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: WTW Re: Sleep or hibernation? What is the difference between Hibernation and Sleep Modes? Are there times when either is preferable to the other? What are the advantages and/or disadvantages of each? With a laptop (Windows Vista) does one or the other use more battery power? Dear WTW Don't use sleep as the default lid closing action. Windows is rather flakey about waking up from sleep if you have Vista or W7. Plus it uses battery. Sleep should never be used for longer than refilling your coffee. Sleep does not save anything to the hard drive, just to the RAM. If the battery runs out while it is in Sleep, you lost whatever you had going. Hibernate saves everything to the hard drive, and then safely shuts down. When you wake it up from Hibernation, it takes 20 seconds longer to wake up, but it does so reliably, and without losing anything. Also, Hibernate does not run down your battery, even if it is in hibernation for a week or two. Have FUN! DearWebby
After spending 3-1/2 hours enduring the long lines, surly clerks and insane regulations at the department of motor vehicles, a lady stopped at a toy store to pick up a gift for her son. She brought her selection - a baseball bat to the cash register. "Cash or charge," the clerk asked. "Cash," she snapped. Then apologizing for her rudeness, she explained, " I've spent the afternoon at the motor-vehicle bureau. I am not too sane right now!!" "Shall I gift -wrap the bat?" the clerk asked sweetly, "Or or you going back?"
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Keep Your Feet Dry With Plastic Bags When we were kids and wanted to play outside in the rain or snow, we didn't have boots. My mother would put plastic bags over our socks then put our shoes on then cover the plastic bags up with our pants. My mom used bread bags but I used recycled plastic grocery bags for my kids. These days I still cover my socks with plastic bags before I go out into the snow. It's one more useful thing you can do with those plastic bags that are just waiting to be reused!
