There is something fascinating about science. One gets such wholesale returns of conjecture out of such a trifling investment of fact. --- Mark Twain (1835 - 1910) Against logic there is no armor like ignorance. --- Laurence J. Peter Ability will never catch up with the demand for it. --- Malcolm Forbes
Becky and Sally Ann were doing some carpenter work on a house. Becky who was nailing down siding would reach into her nail pouch, pull out a nail and either toss it over her shoulder or nail it in. Sally Ann, figuring this was worth looking into, asked, "Why are you throwing those nails away?" Becky explained, "When I pull a nail out of my pouch, about half of them have the head on the wrong end and I throw them away." Sally Ann got completely upset and yelled, "You moron! Those nails aren't defective! They're for the other side of the house!." --------- That is why we give them electric nail guns now, that sort the nails out for them automatically.
Fall Break was over and the teacher was asking the class about their vacations. She turned to little Johnny and asked what he did over the break. "We visited my grandmother in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania," he replied. "That sounds like an excellent vocabulary word," the teacher said. "Can you tell the class how you spell that?" Little Johnny thought about it and said, "You know, come to think of it, we went to Ohio."

Getting away from their high-stress jobs, a couple spent relaxing weekends in their motor home. When they found their peace and quiet disturbed by well-meaning, but unwelcome, visits from other campers, they devised a plan to assure themselves some privacy. Now, when they set up camp, they place this sign on the door of their RV: Insurance agents. Ask about our term-life package.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Stephen Van Alphen, 46, North Fort Meyers, Floriduh Jailed After Exposing Himself To Neighbor's Kids, Challenging Deputies To Peek Under His Poncho Reported by The Weekly Vice Stephen Van Alphen, a 46-year-old Florida man, was jailed Friday after he allegedly exposed himself to neighbors and offered deputies a gander at his self described "small penis." According to the Lee County Sheriff's Office, deputies were dispatched to Van Alphen's neighborhood Friday after several neighbors called to report that a man was exposing himself. Deputies arrived to find Van Alphen walking around his neighborhood wearing nothing more than a poncho. His buttocks and genitals were fully exposed to neighbors, according to the arrest affidavit. When deputies confronted Van Alphen, he offered to show them his penis. "It's too small for anyone to see it anyway," Van Alphen retorted. Van Alphen's roommate told deputies that he had been drinking for three days prior to leaving the home to begin the exhibition. Van Alphen then walked back into his house to a waiting jug of vodka before he was arrested. Investigators say Van Alphen caused an uproar in the neighborhood earlier this month when he exposed himself to a 6-year-old boy while pretending to be a Ninja. Van Alphen later told officers that he was trying to perform a cartwheel maneuver when his pants accidentally fell down. Van Alphen was also arrested in February 2011 when police confiscated 14 pot plants, a gallon jug filled with dried pot, and an elaborate growing system from his home in Naples. In that case he was arrested on multiple felony charges that involved the manufacture and possession of marijuana. He later told local reporters that he planned to continue growing pot and aspired to be a "criminal mastermind without hurting anyone." Van Alphen now faces charges of indecent exposure and resisting arrest. He was released after posting bond.

Daily tip from Handmade Fireplace Logs To make handmade fireplace logs, all you need is a large amount of newspaper, a wooden dowel (or a metal rod, shower curtain rod or closet rod) about 3/4-1+ inch diameter, a few drops of dish soap and some water. Do not use slick, colored paper from sales inserts and circulars etc. Telephone book pages may be used, though they are small and must be torn out of the book. Fill a kitchen sink or a large tub 1/2 full with water (warm will be more comfortable for your hands). Add a few drops of dish soap and stir. Run newspapers, folded in half lengthwise, like you are reading the front page, through the water. Wrap the now-wet newspaper around the dowel and smooth paper down as you wrap. Overlap the next piece a few inches over the end of the previous one and continue to add more newspaper until the log is as big as you like it. Wiggle or twist the dowel/rod as you slip the paper log from the dowel. Stand the 'logs' on end outdoors in a protected area out of the rain. If good weather is predicted they can be left in the sun and they will dry faster. Place them to dry on piles of clean dried leaves, flattened cardboard boxes, or in mesh crates with plenty of space between them so air may circulate around them. Over the next few days, rotate the logs to place the opposite end up, and move them around to ensure all the sides get dry. When thoroughly dried they may be burned just like regular logs. Store them in a dry location. Cotton or jute twine may be tied around each log to hold them together, if the final edge curls up or you wrapped them loosely. By Daleen F. There are "Cranks" available to crank out the paper logs with dry paper. However, they produce less of the CO2, that we need for the grain fields and forests, than the wet method paper logs. Paper logs made with either method have to be burned with lots of air, or they go out. Even when burned with lots of air, they produce an awful lot of ash. The second best way to use the paper logs is to burn them together with construction left-overs. Most construction sites allow you to scavenge cut-offs, some even encourage it. The best way to get rid of the paper logs is to sell them, Have FUN! DearWebby Check out ThriftyFun's Blog

Thanks to Sandie for this news report: Apple computers Apple Computer reported today that it has developed computer chips that can store and play music inside women's breasts . The i-boob is considered to be a major breakthrough because women are always complaining about men staring at their breasts and not listening to them.
