A rumor without a leg to stand on will get around some other way. --- John Tudor The public will believe anything, so long as it is not founded on truth. --- Edith Sitwell Whatever it is the government does, sensible Americans would prefer that the government do it to somebody else. --- PJ Orourke
From APC The Chinese Government has announced that it has leveraged it's 61% ownership of Yahoo-China into taking over the financially insolvent parent company. With the unlimited funds at their disposal, they plan to not only stop Google from annoying them, but to use the New Yahoo to beat them into bankruptcy. They announced that there will be no noticeable changes for Yahoo users. The yahoos are expected to blame the planned censoring on routine Yahoo malfunctions. Since the yahoos don't complain about those, China does not anticipate losing significant numbers of Yahoo subscribers.
The man looked a little worried when the doctor came in to administer his annual physical, so the first thing the doctor did was to ask whether anything was troubling him. "Well, to tell the truth, Doc, yes," answered the patient. "You see, I seem to be getting forgetful. No, it's actually worse than that. I can never remember where I park my car, where I'm going, or what it is I'm going to do once I get there -- if I get there. So, I really need your help. What can I do?" The doctor mused for a moment and considered the real priorities, then answered in his kindest tones, "Pay me in advance."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Patricia Edwards, 51,in Sanford, Florida Florida Woman Robs Bank, Citing Her 'Bucket List' What's on your bucket list? For a Florida woman who says she suffers from leukemia and bipolar disorder, robbing a bank was something she wanted to do before she dies, she told MyFoxOrlando.com. Patricia Edwards, 51, walked into a Bank of America branch last week in Sanford, Fla., and handed a teller a note demanding money. "There was no plan, no nothing, just impulse," Edwards told the Web site in an exclusive interview from the Volusia County Jail. "I just walked by. I said, 'I'm gonna in there... passed a note to gain some cash and I left." Asked why she committed the crime, Edwards said: "Because it was something I had on my bucket list... I think everyone should have a list of things they want to do before they expire." Edwards, who was arrested three days later, said she suffers from non-terminal leukemia and bipolar disorder and was not taking her medication at the time. Edwards, who remains held on $20,000 bail on two counts of robbery, told MyFoxOrlando.com she regrets the bank heist.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Ken Re: Spell check script error in IE Dear Webby, Lately about 95% of the time when I ask for "spell check" in my Google gmail I get the following instead of a spell check, something I need to make my mail look good. Stop running script? A script on this page is cusing Internet Explorer to run slowly. If it continues to run, your computer might become unresponsive. Thanks again for all your help. Ken Dear Ken That's just a routine Microsoft "feature". If you use FireFox, you will never see that problem again. There MIGHT be a fix for that "feature", but why bother? FireFox is way ahead and sooner or later you will upgrade to it anyway. Have FUN! DearWebby Dear Webby Not only did you solve my spell check problem, my butterfly problem (images not showing) disappeared too!! Big thanks!! Ken
A man was walking along the beach and found a bottle. He looked around and didn't see anyone so he opened it. A genie appeared and thanked the man for letting him out. The genie said, "For your kindness I will grant you a wish, but only one - none of that three wishes jazz, OK?" The man thought for a minute and said, "Well, I have always wanted to go to Hawaii but have never been able to because I'm afraid of flying, and ships make me claustrophobic and ill. So, I wish for a road to be built from here to Hawaii." The genie was taken aback a bit, but after some thought said, "No, I don't think I can do that; think about the pilings needed to hold up the highway and how deep they would have to be to reach the bottom of the ocean. Think of all the pavement and steel and concrete that would be needed. I'm sorry, you will have to choose another wish." The man thought for a minute and then told the genie, "There is one other thing that I have always wanted. I would like to be able to understand women. What makes them laugh and cry, why do they get upset at us so easily, what do they really mean when they say 'NOTHING is bothering them', what are their true desires and needs? Basically... what makes them tick?!?" The genie stared at him for a while, and blinked a few times. Finally, after what seemed hours, he replied: "So, do you want two lanes on your bridge, or four?"

There were these two elderly people living in a Florida mobile home park. He was a widower and she a widow. They had known one another for a number of years. Now, one evening there was a community supper in the big activity center. These two were at the same table, across from one another. As the meal went on, he made a few admiring glances at her and finally gathered up his courage to ask her, "Will you marry me?" After a dramatic pause and precisely six seconds of 'careful consideration,' she answered. "Yes. Yes, I will." The meal ended and with a few more pleasant exchanges and they went to their respective places. Next morning, he was troubled. "Did she say 'yes' or did she say 'no'?" He couldn't remember. Try as he would, he just could not recall. Not even a faint memory. With trepidation, he went to the telephone and called her. First, he explained to her that he didn't remember as well as he used to. Then he reviewed the lovely evening past. As he gained a little more courage, he then inquired of her, "When I asked if you would marry me, did you say 'Yes' or did you say 'No'?" He was delighted to hear her say, "Why, I said, 'Yes, yes I will' and I meant it with all my heart." Then she continued, "And I am so glad that you called, because I couldn't remember who had asked me."

Not long after their wedding, the newlyweds awoke early one morning. The couple had been up for quite a while before they met again in the kitchen. Marriage was agreeing with the husband, and he greeted his new wife with glee and excitation that morning. "If you'll make the toast and pour the juice, sweetheart," said the newlywed bride, "breakfast will be ready." "Great! What are we having for breakfast?" he asked "Toast and juice." replied the bride.
