Here is a nice treat for you, if you are the least bit interested in
the space shuttle: Ascent
It is a collection of fairly high resolution super slow motion videos
of shuttle launches shot from diferent angles with some incredible
cameras, some with lenses, that weigh over 200 pounds. 
Ascent has just been released by NASA.

Some of the videos have been shot at 1200 frames per second, 
and are then displayed at YouTube standard 24 frames per second.

I found myself hitting ALT-PrintScreen again and again to clip
a frame, not so much on the real close-ups, but on really lucky
coincidences, like this one with the sun peeking around the 

Get your coffee during the boring two minute introduction. 
Ascent is 45 minutes long, showing shuttle launches from
many different angles and distances.

Have FUN!

"How was your golf game, dear?" asked Jack's wife Tracy. "Well, I was hitting pretty well, but my eyesight's gotten so bad I couldn't see where the ball went." "But you're seventy-five years old, Jack!" admonished his wife, "Why don't you take my brother Scott along?" "But he's eighty-five and doesn't even play golf anymore," protested Jack. "But he's got perfect eyesight. He could watch your ball," Tracy pointed out. The next day Jack teed off with Scott looking on. Jack swung, and the ball disappeared down the middle of the fairway. "Do you see it?" asked Jack. "Yup," Scott answered. "Well, where is it?" yelled Jack, peering off into the distance. "Where is what ?", Scott answered. "My ball! My golf ball!" "Oh, I don't know. I was watching that cute lady over there. Her ball went into the water."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Robin Powell, 45 and Hayley Powell, 18 in Gastonia, NC Mother, daughter both charged with DWIs after crash in Gastonia Gastonia, North Carolina (The Weekly Vice) - A mother and daughter were arrested Sunday on DUI charges after they struck a vehicle, fled the scene of the accident and then attempted to switch drivers to avoid a DUI arrest - when both were intoxicated anyway, and the mother had a revoked drivers license. Hayley Powell, 18, was under the influence of prescription type pills when she crashed into another vehicle at 3:35 p.m. on Sunday in Gastonia. Fearing a second possible DWI charge, Hayley switched seats with her mom, 45-year-old Robin Powell. Mom, though, was not a good choice, either. Robin Powell admitted to the officer that she had been using cocaine and prescription drugs, and her driver's license had been revoked some time ago. As a result, both Powells were charged with DWI, hit and run, and various other charges. They were both booked into the Gaston County Jail, where they are rather familiar faces. Hayley has been booked 11 times in the past 14 months, while Mom has been arrested eight times since 2008.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Angela Re: Head set microphone and speakers Dear Webby, I got mom's "Ol' Boom Box", actually a huge entertainment center, including a TV, that doesn't work, a record player, fancy cut glass door cabinets, carved ornamental grills in front of huge speakers, and gorgeous sound that used to wake me up two floors up. Can I use that instead of the earphones on my head set, but keep the microphone part? How do I connect to the Ol Boom Box? It has screw terminals instead of sockets. Thanks Angela --------------------- Dear Angela Yes, you most certainly can use mom's Ol' Boom Box! To connect, get a 1/8" Stereo to 4 wire screw terminal splitter cable from RadioShack. Plug the 1/8" stereo jack into the green socket on the copmputer, and connect the screw terminals to the AUX Input on the boom box, or where the record player is connected. If left and right speakers wind up reversed, just switch the wires to the red terminals. The black ones are common and won't make a difference. Have FUN! DearWebby

A young man called his mother and announced excitedly that he had just met the woman of his dreams. Now what should he do? His mother had an idea: "Why don't you send her a card, and on the card invite her to your apartment for a home-cooked meal?" He thought this was a great strategy, and a week later, the woman came to dinner. His mother called the next day to see how things had gone. "I was totally humiliated," he moaned. "She insisted on washing the dishes." "What's wrong with that?" asked his mother. "We hadn't started eating yet."
Daily tip from Attach Child's Picture to Gift We have young grandchildren who live out of state so to make their Christmas gifts seem even more special, we attach a picture of each child to their gift. We use a single hole punch to make a hole in a corner of the picture. We laminate the photo but you don't have to. Then run a small piece of ribbon through the hole and tie the ends together. Next (after wrapping the gift) run a second ribbon through the first one and then around the gift, and tie it off. We place a bow on the knot for looks. Then after they open the gift they use the new picture as an ornament for the tree. If you put the date on the back of the picture they can see how they have changed through the years. It creates a great memory tree. Hope you enjoy this tip. Source: I'm not sure where I got it. We have been doing this for a few years now.

Dave was talking to his buddy, John, about his love life. "So, John, how's it going with the ladies?" "Women, to me, are nothing but sex objects." "Really?" "Yep," John shook his head sadly, "Whenever I mention sex, they object."

The other two pastors nod and he goes on, "Well, it's bats. We can't seem to get these bats out of our attic. The singing and organ playing wake them up, and they start flapping around. Then when I start to preach, we can still hear them moving around up there and it's really hard for anyone to pay any attention. The kids start to cry and, well, it's starting to really get in the way of a good church service." The second pastor says "Well that's interesting, because we've had the same problem, they won't stay out of our belfry. We've tried ringing the bells at all hours, spraying chemicals, we've even had a couple of exterminator companies out. Nothing's worked yet." He throws up his hands in exasperation and shakes his head. The third pastor smiles and nods his head knowingly. "Well, gentlemen. We had that problem a few years ago, and we found a quick solution." he says. The other two pastors look up with hope on their faces, and he goes on, "It was easy. We went up there, got to know 'em a little bit, got 'em baptized and started passing the collection plate to them. Haven't seen 'em since."

A customer sent an order to a distributor for a large amount of goods totaling a great deal of money. The distributor noticed that the previous bill hadn't been paid. The collections manager left a voice- mail for them saying, "We can't ship your new order until you pay for the last one." The next day the collections manager got a message on his answering machine: "Please cancel the order. We can't wait that long....
