A minister, a priest and a rabbi were discussing when life begins. "Those of my faith," said the minister, "believe that life starts when the heart begins to beat." "We take a different view," said the priest. "We believe life starts at the moment of conception." "Well," said the rabbi, "it is our belief that life starts when the kids move out and the dog dies."
Classic! You are driving along in your car on a wild, stormy night. You pass by a bus stop, and you see three people waiting for the bus: 1. An old lady who looks as if she is about to die. 2. An old friend who once saved your life. 3. The perfect man (or) woman you have been dreaming about. Which one would you choose to offer a ride to, knowing that there could only be one passenger in your car. Think before you continue reading. This is a moral/ethical dilemma that was once actually used as part of a job application. You could pick up the old lady, because she is going to die, and thus you should save her first; or you could take the old friend because he once saved your life, and this would be the perfect chance to pay him back. However, you may never be able to find your perfect dream lover again. The candidate who was hired! (out of 200 applicants) had no trouble coming up with his answer. I love this, I may actually use it sometime for an interview situation. WHAT DID HE SAY? He simply answered: "I would give the car keys to my old friend, and let him take the lady to the hospital. I would stay behind and wait for the bus with the woman of my dreams."

Reported by Walter, the stone carver. An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to New French trains are too fat for old platforms France’s national rail operator SNCF, which runs the prestigious TGV fast trains, that are a source of pride for the French, spent 15 billion euros ($20.5 billion) on regional trains, that are too wide for 1,300 stations, meaning platforms will have to be “shaved” to avoid getting stuck. Confirming the reports of the mistake, the French train company admitted that the wider trains, built to “meet the public’s expectations requires the modernisation of 1,300 platforms out of a total of 8,700 in the French railways.” Actually, the public didn't expect wider trains, just faster ones. The error seems to have happened because the national rail operator RFF gave the wrong dimensions to train company SNCF. They measured the width of a new railroad station, and ignored the fact that about 1300 older stations are narrower. Also, in some cases the rails are too close, and tains won't be able to pass. Tech Support Pits From: Debo Re: Gmail Warning Dear Webby What is the meaning of this warning, I use an Android and it's the first time I'm getting it. Debo Dear Debo That is the Gmail Malfunction, that I wrote about a couple of weeks ago. Just make a Gmail filter to NEVER put mail from into Spam, and to set it as IMPORTANT. Then the sniveling ninnies won't whine or censor. There is no point writing to them, since they don't read or answer mail to their support anyway. Just make a filter in Gmail. Have FUN! DearWebby

The puzzled farmer finally phoned him to ask whats the matter, didn't he like him or somethin'. The doctor said, "No, its your ducks at the entrance... Every time I enter the farm, they call me a quack!"
