The only thing that saves us from the bureaucracy is inefficiency. An efficient bureaucracy is the greatest threat to liberty. --- Eugene McCarthy (1916 - 2005) If you don't read the newspaper you are uninformed, if you do read the newspaper you are misinformed. --- Mark Twain
Two voices - male and female - obviously on a plane. "I think everyone's asleep, lets go" Sound of steps. "This one's empty ... no-ones looking ... you go in first" "It a bit cramped - let me sit down" "Have you got the condom? Quick - put it on" Sniff sniff "Ah perfume - you think of everything" "This is great....." (long sigh) Static on the loud speaker then a new voice. "This is the captain speaking, to those two people in the rear toilet. We know what you're doing and it is expressly forbidden by airline regulations... Now put those cigarettes out and take the condom off the smoke detector!"
A flight attendant was on the red-eye to Manila when a water leak developed in the galley, which eventually soaked the carpet throughout the cabin of the 747. A very sleepy passenger who had become aware of the dampness asked the attendant, "Has it been raining?" Keeping a straight face, the attendant replied, "Yes, but we put the top up." With a sigh of relief, the passenger went back to sleep

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Djuna M. Tansmore, 48, Monessen, Pennsylvania Walmart robber leaves one year old old niece behind A Pennsylvania woman suspected of robbing a Walmart is also accused of leaving her 1-year-old niece behind. Djuna M. Tansmore, 48, was arrested Thursday in Rostraver Township after store surveillance video caught her attempting to exit the store with $86.58 worth of laundry detergent and Miracle Whip in a grocery cart, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports. When the store's loss prevention officer approached Tansmore, she tried to undo the safety strap that held her niece to the cart. Rostraver Township Police Chief Greg Resetar told WTAE TV that's when the struggle over the baby in the car seat began. "The straps weren't released and it sort of tipped the cart, and she sort of was trying to shake it, moving around, trying to dislodge the baby from the mechanism," Resetar said. Video obtained by the station appears to show the baby in the seat being yanked back and forth with the cart nearly tipping, then being dragged behind the baby seat. The suspect allegedly fled the scene, leaving the toddler behind, according to PennLive.com. Tansmore was arrested a short time later near her home in Monessen, Pennsylvania. She was charged with retail theft, recklessly endangering another person, use/possession of drug paraphernalia and endangering the welfare of children, according to WPXI TV. She was placed in the Westmoreland County Prison in Hempfield Township after failing to post $10,000 bond. She will have a preliminary hearing on Sept. 9. The child eventually was released at the store to the custody of its mother, according to police. Tech Support Pits From: Gyppo Re: Happy with Refurb W7 machine Dear Webby A day or so ago you suggested to someone they bought a Windows 7 machine before they vanished from the stores and they were forced to go Win 8.. I recently bought a refurbished office machine, a Dell 390 workstation and the specs were amazing for something costing just over 100. The transition from my much loved XP Pro has been less painful than I expected. I got a damned fine machine, with the software installed, solid as a rock with a few scratches on the case, for less than some of the questionable copies of the 7 Pro software alone. Gyppo (UK) Good for you, Gyppo! Windows7 has been pretty well fixed by now with one or two big updates per month for the last dozen years, and is finally better than XP. Just be careful about "utilities" like cute clocks, that come bundled with trojans. With ANY Windows7 add-ons and utilities ask yourself, whether you absolutely need them. What you DO need is a good Anti Virus program like McAfee, an Anti-Trojan program like MalwareBytes, a password manager like RoboForm, and a garbage cleaner like CrapCleaner. There are plenty of fake alternatives out there. Be careful! With RoboForm use my link. Otherwise you will fall into a nightmare of ads at C-net, that will tempt to sidetrack you. Real nuisance! My link is straight to the download, no fuss, no sidetracking. As for anything else, you can probably find it already built in, just in typical Windows7 fashion, in a deviously hidden location. A minute of Googling will tell you where it is hidden and how to access it. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Use Permanent Marker to Dye Exposed Clothing Threads I just bought a black sweater and the label's white threads were showing through at the neck line. I have short hair, so it was truly bugging me. I grabbed my permanent black marker and brushed over the exposed threads. They disappeared instantly. So grab your colored markers for all your threads that are exposed. I also did this to my black jeans that had a small bleach spot. By Kathy from Harrisonburg, VA Check out ThriftyFun's Blog

>From Julie I had given our daughter, who was 15 at the time, a drivers manual. On the way to town one day, I was coaching her as I drove. I told her to be studying her book so as to be ready when it came time to get her driver's permit. "Oh, she said, "I already know everything in the book." "You do?" I returned. "Yep," she said, very smugly. I thought, "OK, I'll give her a hard one." So I asked her, "How many feet does it take to stop the car if you are driving 60 miles an hour and have to slam on the brakes real hard?" "One," she replied. "What?" I asked. "One?!" She repeated her answer and then because of the confused look on my face, she added, "One, Mom. You always told me never to use both feet on the brake, only use my right one."
There was a married couple who were in a terrible accident. The woman's face was burned severely. The doctor told the husband they couldn't graft any skin from her body because she was so skinny. The husband then donated some of his skin...however, the only place suitable to the doctor was from his buttocks. The husband requested that no one be told of this, because after all,... this was a very delicate matter! After the surgery was completed, everyone was astounded at the woman's new beauty. She looked more beautiful than she ever did before! All her friends and relatives just ranted and raved at her youthful beauty! She was alone with her husband one day & she wanted to thank him for what he did. She said, "Dear, I just want to thank you for everything you did for me! There is no way I could ever repay you!!! He replied, "Oh don't worry, Honey, I get thanks enough every time your mother comes over and kisses you on your cheek!!
