Rabbi Mendel was one day walking along a very narrow street, when he came face to face with a rival Rabbi. The street was too narrow for the two to pass. The rival, pulling himself up to his full height, said haughtily: . . . "I never make way for fools " Smiling, Rabbi Mendel stepped aside and said, . . . "I always do."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Celestino Moras, 25, Cassville, Georgia Man lassoed, tackled and beat up after shooting at people at a rodeo An intoxicated Georgia man was lassoed and beat up after allegedly wounding three people at a Memorial Day Weekend rodeo. Police say that Celestino Moras, 25, opened fire just after 7 p.m. Sunday, at the annual rodeo in Cassville, Bartow County, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Moras allegedly shot off multiple rounds before finding himself a little tied up. The property owner said when Moras ran out of bullets, one of the rodeo cowboys lassoed him. Other guests beat him and tied him up until deputies could arrive. Doctors treated Moras for facial injuries before deputies took him to jail. He was charged with aggravated assault. All victims were treated at an area hospital and released. Tech Support Pits From: Ann Re: Mouse Resolution Dear Webby That mouse revolution, ahem resolution, sounds intriguing, but somehow I can't understand what you meant to say. Please use smaller words. Thanks Ann Dear Ann With most mice the cursor always moves the same distance when you move the mouse a certain distance. With some, the cursor moves further, when you move the mouse fast. That is called "Dynamic Resolution", and can be a bit frustrating. Adjustable resolution, once only found on expensive gamers mice, lets you set a multiplier. A low number moves the cursor a low number of pixels for a certain distance of mouse movement. A high number moves the mouse a large number of pixels when you move the mouse the same distance. With most mice you have to stop and go into some Control Panel and menu to change the resolution. With the GigaByte M6900 Buttons #6 and #7 let you change that resolution without interrupting your work. For Facebook or general browsing you normally use a large resolution number like 3200, so that a tiny movement of your hand makes the cursor move a large distance. For detail painting, for example to fix the red eyes or the reflection of the flash on somebody's eyeballs in a family reunion picture, you want the cursor or paintbrush to move only a tiny distance with a large movement of the mouse. For that you would click it down to 400. When the eyes are done and you want to make the messy background nice and fuzzy, click it up to higher numbers for fast softening sweeps. Have FUN! DearWebby

A guy walks into a gas station and buys a pack of cigarettes. He pulls one out and starts smoking it. The cashier says, "Excuse me sir, but you can't smoke in here." The guy says, "Don't you think it's kinda dumb that I buy them here but can't smoke them here?" And the cashier replies, "Not at all...we also sell condoms here."
