"Kirobo, a talking humanoid robot, has been launched into 
space and is headed to the International Space Station. From 
the article: 'Japan has launched the world's first talking 
humanoid robot "astronaut" toward the International Space 
Station. Kirobo  derived from the Japanese words for "hope" 
and "robot"  was among five tons of supplies and machinery 
on a rocket launched Sunday from Tanegashima in southwestern 
Japan, the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency, or JAXA, said. 
The childlike robot was designed to be a companion for 
astronaut Koichi Wakata and will communicate with another 
robot on Earth, according to developers. Wakata is expected 
to arrive at the space station in November.'"

Judy was speeding and an officer pulled her to the side of the road. She didn't have her seat belt on so as soon as she stopped, she quickly slipped it on before the officer got to her window. After talking to her about speeding, the officer said, "I see you are wearing your seat belt. Do you believe in wearing it at all times?" "Yes, I do, officer," she replied. "Well," asked the officer, "do you always do it up with it looped through your steering wheel?"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Matthew Corp, 35, Tavernier, Floriduh Jailed After Calling 911 To Stop His Ex-Girlfriend From Moving Out Of Their Apartment Reported by The Weekly Vice Matthew Corp, a 35-year-old Florida bonehead, was jailed Saturday after he called 911 because his girlfriend decided to break off her relationship with him and move out. According to the Monroe County Sheriff's Office, Corp called 911 Saturday and told dispatchers that his "wife" had been kidnapped by two men driving in a U-Haul truck. Investigators say a notice was sent out to local law enforcement agencies to be on the lookout for the U-Haul while deputies were dispatched to Corp's home to gather additional information. When deputies arrived at Corp's apartment, they encountered two women walking out the door. One of the women told deputies that she was now Corp's "Ex-girlfriend" and in the process of moving out of his apartment. Corp, who was intoxicated, came out of the apartment and began to yell at deputies, according to a MCSO press release. Corp went on to say that he called in a false kidnapping report to keep his girlfriend from moving out. Corp was booked into the Monroe County Jail and charged with misuse of 911 and resisting arrest. Tech Support Pits From: Rod Re: Change formula to vaule in Excel Dear Webby How do you convert a formula to a value in Excel, so that neither the formula nor the original value is visible? In Quattro it is so easy, but I can't even find the instructions for that in the Excel Help. What's the big secret? Rod Dear Rod In the 80's there was some very hot competition in spreadsheets. After Lotus had copied the concept from Easycalc, they sued everybody, who used similar user interfaces. A bunch of law firms got very rich on that. Quattro had to change the user interface slightly, and when Excel came along, they had to be even more careful. That resulted in some not so elegant solutions. Convert To Values is one of those examples. In Quattro you select the area, then ALT E (Edit) V (conVert to Values) In Excel, select the Area, then Edit, Copy Edit, Paste Special select Values OK The end result is exactly the same, even though it does not seem to be logical or intuitive, if you are used to Quattro.

A noted psychiatrist was a guest at an artists gathering, and his hostess naturally broached the subject in which the doctor was most at ease. "Would you mind telling me, Doctor," she asked, "how you detect a mental deficiency in somebody who appears completely normal?" "Nothing is easier," he replied. "You ask a simple question which anyone should answer with no trouble. If he hesitates, that puts you on the track." "What sort of question?" "Well, you might ask him, 'Captain Cook made three trips around the world and died during one of them. Which one?' The hostess thought a moment, then said with a nervous laugh, "You wouldn't happen to have another example would you? I must confess I don't know much about history."

The Dean of admissions at Bates College in Maine reads through reams of applications from nervous high school seniors, some maybe a little more nervous than others.

"Mathematics has hung like a stork around my neck."
