On my first day working at the gas station, I watched a senior co-worker measure the level of gasoline in the under- ground tanks by lowering a giant measuring stick down into them. "What would happen if I threw a lit match into the hole?" I joked. "It would go out," he replied very matter-of-factly. "Really?" I asked, surprised to hear that. "Is there a lack of oxygen down there or some safety device that would extinguish it before the fumes ignited?" "No," my co-worker continued. "The force from the explosion would blow out the match."

The colonel had three Second Lieutenants eligible for promotion. The problem was, he only had one First Lieutenant Slot available. The colonel called the first butter-bar into his office and said, "This is a promotion test. If I was to tell you that I wanted a flag pole erected in front of Post HQ by 1700, what would you do?" The Lt. thought about it for a second, and said, "Sir. I would get a shovel, head for HQ and start digging . . . " "You're not ready to be promoted," the Colonel interrupted. The colonel asked the same question of the next candidate. "Sir," said the next butter-bar, "I would fill out a CE work order, making sure I made provisions for the appropriate environmental study and . . . " "You are definitely not ready to be promoted," the Colonel said. The Colonel asked the question of the final candidate. Without hesitation, the Lieutenant said, "Sir. I would call the First Sergeant, and say, 'Top, I want a @#$#@ flag pole set up in front of HQ by 16:30, standing perfectly straight!" "You're ready to be promoted," the Colonel said.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Jaaziah Herrera, 23, St Cloud, Floriduh Cell Phone Salesman Charged With Dragging Woman Into Back Room, Demanding That She Date Him Reported by The Weekly Vice Jaaziah Herrera, a 23-year-old Florida bonehead employed at Metro PCS in St. Cloud, was jailed after he allegedly dragged a customer into a back room and demanded that she start dating him. According to police, a customer was shopping at a Metro PCS store in St. Cloud when an employee, identified as Jaaziah Herrera, suggested that the two of them should date. When the woman turned down Herrera's advances, he reportedly dragged her into a back room at the store and pinned her down so that she was unable to get away. That's when he reportedly told her "Look me in the eyes and tell me you don't want me." The victim reportedly told Herrera "No" several times, explaining that she had a boyfriend and that he would be looking for her. Herrera eventually let the woman go, and she immediately called police. When officers arrived at the store to question Herrera, they found a 5-foot nylon rope in his pocket. Herrera told police that he carried the rope because he had been practicing his knot tying skills. He was booked into the Osceola County Jail and charged with false imprisonment and battery. Tech Support Pits From: Phyllis Re: Confusion with Gmail Dear Webby, Gmail has me completely confused...although being a senior citizen may account for that ,too. They have somehow changed their way of sending out email and when I go to their @Welcome to the new GMail" page, I find no instructions at all. Now I get one or 2 new emails per day, none of which are ones I want. I'm still getting your letter on my alternate email address, but that's not helping for my Gmail. Any ideas? Phyllis Dear Phyllis A lot of people wrote with similar questions or complaints about Gmail. What really frosted a lot of people was that the totally unhelpful edict from the throne was sent by , and they don't know where to complain about the dopey concept. Your address is still in the list and your newsletter is getting sent to you every night. Possibly you got backstabbed with the new wacky tabs, that disorganize your Gmail inbox. Best to take the checkmarks off those thilly tabbies and hope, that sorting by receive date and time will return. They don't seem to have the talent necessary for sorting by column like the good email programs have had for over 20 years, so they are trying to sort emails by category, without really understanding how you take care of your emails. Instead of leaving it sorted by date and time, they shuffle it by category. For example, they put all Linkedin, FaceBook, Twitter, etc. related mails in one bunch at the top, and your electrical bill and mail from your Sweetie and your subscriptions in another bunch somewhere else. If somebody is just a social butterfly and only using Gmail for playing on social networks, that concept MIGHT make sense. For the rest of us, it is a bloody nuisance. Naturally, now most people miss important emails and can't find expected mails and they are cussing about "Blonde Logic" and wondering, what they are smoking at Gmail. Luckily, it is easy to undo the wanky thillyness. Look for the little gear at the right side and pull it down. In there select "Configure Inbox". In there, take the checkmark of all categories except PRIMARY. Save and return to the Inbox. You get back the extra space, that they stole off the top, and the thilly category sorting is gone.

Daily tip from Garlic as Remedy for Toothache Garlic is another remedy that works on toothache pain. I place a sliver of garlic between the infected area of the tooth and cheek for as long as I can stand it, because the garlic has a peppery taste. The garlic, like cabbage, will draw out the infection and relieve the pain and swelling. Cloves work to numb the infected area also. By dee53 Check out ThriftyFun's Blog at
A man was speeding down the highway, feeling secure in a gaggle of cars all traveling at the same speed. However, as they passed a speed trap, he got nailed with an infrared speed detector and was pulled over. The officer handed him the citation, received his signature and was about to walk away when the man asked, "Officer, I know I was speeding, but I don't think it's fair - there were plenty of other cars around me who were going just as fast, so why did *I* get the ticket?" "Ever go fishing?" the policeman suddenly asked the man. "Ummm, yeah..." the startled man replied. The officer grinned and added, "Ever catch *all* the fish?"
