My life has no purpose, no direction, no aim, no meaning, and yet I'm happy. I can't figure it out. What am I doing right? --- Charles M. Schulz (1922 - 2000) Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored. --- Aldous Huxley (1894 - 1963), Somebody should 'splain that to Al Gore! Strange as it seems, no amount of learning can cure stupidity, and higher education positively fortifies it. --- Stephen Vizinczey
Bidding at a local auction was proceeding furiously, when the auctioneer received a note from an assistant, "A gentle- man in this room has lost a wallet containing $10,000. If it is returned, he will pay a reward of $2,000." There was a moment's silence, and then from the back of the room came a cry: "Two Thousand Five Hundred."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Laquavia Wallace, 22, Sarasota, FL Jailed After Assaulting Ex-Boyfriend's Penis When He Refused To Start New Relationship With Her Reported by The Weekly Vice Laquavia Wallace, a 22-year-old Florida woman, was jailed Tuesday after she allegedly began yanking on her ex-boyfriend's penis when he refused to start a new relationship with her. According the Manatee County Sheriff's Office, deputies were dispatched to the residence of Antonio Williams after 911 dispatchers received a report of a domestic dispute in progress. Arriving deputies spoke with Williams who stated that he was at his residence when Wallace came by to pick up their daughter. Williams said that he invited Wallace to come inside, however, an argument soon developed between the pair because Wallace wanted to begin a new relationship with him and he wasn't interested in the idea. That's when Wallace allegedly grabbed Williams' penis with her right hand and began pulling on it. Williams stated that the vigorous yanking caused him pain, and so he grabbed Wallace's arm to "prevent further violence." The arrest report did not indicate Williams' state of dress or how Wallace was able to grab his penis. Also not mentioned in the report was the daughter's whereabouts while her mother was engaged in an assault on her father's penis. The incident was witnessed by a roommate who lives with Williams, according to the arrest report. Although Williams told deputies that he didn't wish to file charges or provide a sworn affidavit, deputies felt they had gathered enough information and evidence to take Wallace into custody without his testimony. Wallace was booked into the Manatee County Jail and charged with domestic battery. She was released without bond the next day. Tech Support Pits From: Gerold Re: Uninterruptible Power Supply Dear Webby We have a lot of power failures, and expect more in the summer and fall. Because of the long start-up time of my computer, I need something that takes over instantly, even if there is just a momentary flicker in the power. Btw., I use a low power LCD monitor. What do you recommend? Dear Gerold Forget the overpriced UPSes. Most of them just barely allow you a clean shut-down, but not to continue working. Get a standard automotive 450 W - 600W DC to AC adapter from a recreational vehicle or camping supply store, a standard car battery and a car battery charger. Connect all of them up and run an extension cord from the DC to AC adapter to your computer and monitor. You can even plug in a light with a compact fluorescent bulb. If you are set up like that, you are ALWAYS running off the car battery. When the power fails, then for a while the car battery won't get charged up. But you will have half a day or more reserve before you have to start a generator to recharge the battery. Usually power is restored long before that. Once you have everything connected and working, spray or brush the battery terminals and connectors with an acrylic varnish or paint. NOT Latex! As long as you don't set the battery on a concrete floor, you should get 4-5 years out of it. Even though today's batteries are sealed, I would still recommend to keep them outside and as high up as is conveniently possible. By the way, unlike laptop batteries, automotive batteries should NEVER be completely discharged. Their capabilities are only 80% as good after a complete discharge as they were before you did that. Have FUN! DearWebby

REDNECK 911 A couple of rednecks are out in the woods hunting when one of them falls to the ground. He doesn't seem to be breathing, his eyes are rolled back in his head. The other guy whips out his cell phone and calls 911. He gasps to the operator, "Bubba is dead! What can I do?" The operator, in a calm soothing voice says, "Just take it easy. I can help. First, let's make sure wether he's really dead." There is a silence, then a shot is heard. The guy's voice comes back on the line. He says, "OK, now what do we do next ?"
