Hegel was right when he said that we learn from history that man can never learn anything from history. --- George Bernard Shaw A superstition is a premature explanation that overstays its time. --- George Iles Did you ever see the customers in health-food stores? They are pale skinny people who look half-dead. In a steak house you see robust, ruddy people. They're dying, of course, but they look terrific. --- Bill Cosby
There was once a young man who, in his youth, professed a desire to become a "great" writer.When asked to define "great", he said: "I want to write stuff that the whole world will read, stuff that people will react to on a truly emotional level, stuff that will make them scream, cry, wail, howl in pain, desperation and anger!" He now works for Microsoft writing error messages.
During a service at an old synagogue in Eastern Europe, when the Shema prayer was said, half the congregants stood up and half remained sitting. The half that was seated started yelling at those standing to sit down, and the ones standing yelled at the ones sitting to stand up. The rabbi, learned as he was in the Law and commentaries, didn't know what to do. His congregation suggested that he consult a housebound 98-year old man, who was one of the original founders of their temple. The rabbi hoped the elderly man would be able to tell him what the actual temple tradition was, so he went to the nursing home with a representative of each faction of the congregation. The one whose followers stood during Shema said to the old man, "Is the tradition to stand during this prayer?" The old man answered, "No, that is not the tradition." The one whose followers sat down, asked, "Is the tradition to sit during Shema?" The old man answered, "No, that is not the tradition." Then the rabbi said to the old man, "The congregants fight all the time, yelling at each other about whether they should sit or stand!" The old man interrupted, exclaiming, "THAT is our tradition!"
The aged patient doddered into the doctor's office with a serious complaint. "Doc, you've got to do something to lower my sex drive." "Come on now SquirrelBait," the doctor said, "your sex drives all in your head." "That's what I mean, I need it a bit lower down."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Katrina Purll, 29 in Perth, Scotland Woman who lost purse with cocaine arrested PERTH, Scotland, April 21 (UPI) -- Scottish police said a woman who visited the station to collect her lost purse was arrested immediately for possession of the cocaine found inside the bag. Authorities in Perth said Katrina Purll, 29, pleaded guilty Tuesday to possession of $23 worth of cocaine and was ordered to pay a $460 fine, The Daily Record, Glasgow, reported Wednesday. Police said Purll left the bag at a pub in November and was immediately arrested when she arrived at a police office to collect the purse. "It seems not to have crossed her mind that the first thing we do with a bag which is handed in is have a good look through it," a police source told the Record. "There was a small bag of cocaine and no one expected the owner to ask for it back."
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Frank re: Video Setting Dear Webby I had a video card replaced yesterday and my screens don't look exactly like they did previously. What is the normal screen resolution setting? Keep in mind I'm a senior and the eyes aren't what they were 30 years ago. Thanks again for the response to these basic questions. Frank Dear Frank I run my monitors at 1600 x 1200. The more pixels you got, the finer and sharper everything is. You can always crank the font size percentage in the Advanced part to whatever is comfortable. Have FUN! DearWebby Dear Webby, Much better, my only choices were 1600 x 1024 or 1680 x 1050. I chose the first one, then increased the font size. As always, thank you for you timely assistance Frank
The minister had just finished an excellent chicken dinner at the home of a member of his congregation when he saw a rooster come strutting through the yard. "That's certainly a proud-looking rooster you have there," the minister commented. "Yes, sir," replied the farmer. "He has reason to be proud -- one of his daughters has just entered the ministry!"

At a local coffee shop, a young woman was expounding on her idea of the perfect mate to some of her friends. "The man I marry must be a shining light amongst company. He must be musical. Tell jokes. Sing. And stay home at night!" A little old lady at the next table overheard and spoke up, "Girl, what you described is a television set!"

A college senior takes his his new girlfriend to a football game. The young couple found seats in the crowded stadium and were watching the action. A substitute was put into the game, and as he was running onto the field to take his position, the boy said to his girfriend, "Take a good look at that fellow. I expect him to be our best man next year." His girfriend snuggled closer and said to the surprised young man, "That's the strangest way I ever heard of for a fellow to propose to a girl. But regardless of how you said it, I accept!"
