When I lived in a dorm, one of the favorite intramural sports was water fights. Dousing and bombarding one another with water from squirt guns, glasses, balloons, even wastebaskets. Since each room had a sink, there was endless ammunition. The most frequent target was the Resident Assistant. Approaching his room one afternoon, he noticed his door was ajar. Looking up, he saw a pail of water balanced on the door's edge, ready to fall on him. As he took down the pail and emptied it into his sink, he exclaimed, "You crazy guys actually thought you could fool me with THAT old gag!" It was then he realized that we had removed the drainpipe under the sink and turned the "U" trap to point at his crotch.
BACK IN MY DAY In my day, we didn't have no rocks. We had to go down to the creek and wash our clothes by beating them with our heads. Back in the 1970s we didn't have the space shuttle to get all excited about. We had to settle for men walking on the crummy moon. In my day, we didn't have hand-held calculators. We had to do addition on our fingers. In my day, we didn't have water. We had to smash together our own hydrogen and oxygen atoms. Kids today think the world revolves around them. In my day, the sun revolved around the world, and the world was perched on the back of a giant tortoise. In my day, we didn't have virtual reality. If a one-eyed, razorback barbarian warrior was chasing you with an ax, you had to kill him with a shovel.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to William McDaniel,53, Butte, Montana Man Calls 911 To Complain That Stripper Would Not Have Sex With Him After paying $350 for a private dance at a gentlemenís club, a Montana man called police to complain that the stripper did not have sex with him. William McDaniel, 53, paid for the dance Saturday evening at Sagebrush Samís Exotic Dance Club and Casino in Rocker, a Butte suburb. But when he did not get the expected sex, he dialed 911 to register a consumer complaint. This was a mistake on McDanielís part. After questioning McDaniel, police arrested him for offering money for sexual favors, a misdemeanor. He was booked into the Butte-Silver Bow Detention Center, from which he was released Sunday morning after posting $550 bond. Tech Support Pits From: Lynn Re: Wired or wireless? Dear Webby What is faster for a home office network, old fashioned cable or wireless? I know I can't go by what the computer magazines say, because those guys never paid for their toys and have to watch who pays for the ads. The machines are not used for high file traffic games, just for office work, but in 4 different rooms. We are moving and I need to quickly decide whether to have the new place cabled or not. Thanks Lynn Dear Lynn Professionally installing cables so that they are hidden, with neat and clean wall jacks, is neither cheap nor fast. If you go that route, check with burglar alarm system installers. They know how to securely hide cables so that absolutely nothing shows. Wireless will be cheaper, and can be set up in an evening. The file transfer speed of wireless is better than cable, as long as there are no fridges or metal file cabinets bouncing the signal around, and as long as the distance is not over 50 feet, otherwise the file transfer speed is lower than cable. If you have one or more "roaming" laptops, go with wireless. Have FUN! DearWebby

Wendy was waiting her turn at the bakery, when she heard a prospective bride give the cake decorator a hard time as she previewed her wedding cake. She demanded many extras and was critical of the work he'd done so far. After she left, he muttered, "I'm glad I put my special golden award on this cake. That young woman is sure eligible for it." Curious, Wendy studied the cake closely, but saw nothing. Finally the decorator pointed to the tiny bridegroom atop the cake with his tiny bride and there it was. Barely visible was the "golden award", a tiny ring, inserted in the groom's nose.
Thanks to Sandie for these stats: A recent study found that the average American walks about 900 miles a year. Another study by the American Beer Institute found that the average American drinks 22 gallons of beer a year. This means, on average, Americans get approximately 41 miles per gallon. Not bad!!!
