One of the keys to happiness is a bad memory. --- Rita Mae Brown Against logic there is no armor like ignorance. --- Laurence J. Peter "According to a new study, polar bears will probably be ex- tinct by the year 2050. So enjoy eating them while you can." --- Dave Letterman
Benjamin is in the midst of a long dry spell in Las Vegas. Eventually he gambles away all his money and has to borrow a quarter from another gambler just to use the men's room. He finds a stall that happens to be open and pockets the quarter. Believing that his luck has finally changed, he puts the quarter in a slot machine and hits the jackpot. He takes his winnings and goes to the blackjack table and turns his modest winnings into a million dollars. Wealthy beyond his wildest dreams, Benjamin goes on the lecture circuit, where he tells his incredible story. He tells his audiences that he will always be eternally grateful to his benefactor, and if he ever finds the man, he will share his fortune with him. After months of speaking, a man in the audience jumps up and says, "I'm that man. I was the one who gave you the quarter." "Yes, I ! remember you well, but you aren't the one I'm looking for. I am looking for the guy who left the stall door open!"
The young suitor was determined to win the heart of the woman he wanted to marry, in spite of her rejection of his proposal. He began what can only be called a "Campaign" and sent her a token of his affection every day for a month to her house. The plan was successful too -- the young lady fell in love with the UPS man.
On my first day working at the gas station, I watched a senior co-worker measure the level of gasoline in the under- ground tanks by lowering a giant measuring stick down into them. "What would happen if I threw a lit match into the hole?" I joked. "It would go out," he replied very matter-of-factly. "Really?" I asked, surprised to hear that. "Is there a lack of oxygen down there or some safety device that would extinguish it before the fumes ignited?" "No," my co-worker continued. "The force from the explosion would blow out the match."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD Micah Dailey, 20, of Cape Coral, Floriduh Man arrested wearing 'Go Directly to Jail' t-shirt A man from Florida was arrested while wearing a Monopoly- themed t-shirt with the words 'Go Directly to Jail' printed across it. Micah Dailey was dressed accordingly for his mugshot after being nabbed for possession of marijuana of no more than 20 grams and possession of drug paraphernalia, according to the Lee County Sheriff's Department. Unfortunately for the suspect, he didn't have a get-out-of-jail-free card in his back pocket and was instead forced to post $6,500 bail. "It had an element of humor to it," Sgt. Scott Lineberger told The New York Daily News, which first reported the story. Tech Support Pits From: Ruth Re: Zooming fonts Dear Webby! You write about zoomable fonts as if everbody knew how to zoom them. Maybe you explained that at one time, but that must have been before I subscribed. Can you please tell us again? Ruth Dear Ruth On most browsers like Chrome or FireFox, you just hold down CTRL and turn the scroll wheel on the mouse. On Internet Explorer you hold down CTRL and hit the + or the - on the keyboard. CTRL and + and - work on Chrome and FireFox too, but are rather klutzy compared to just using CTRL and the scroll wheel. CTRL plus Scroll Wheel zooms pictures too, not just fonts. Have FUN! DearWebby

Two youngsters were walking home from Sunday School, each deep in his own thoughts. Finally one said, "What do you think about all this devil business we studied today?" The other boy replied thoughtfully, "Well, you know how Santa Claus turned out. This is probably just your Dad, too."
One of my first duties as an Air Force officer was to set up a field medical-training program at our hospital. I conducted a class in triage -- sorting out battlefield casualties according to the likelihood of survival. We had applied theatrical makeup to several airmen to simulate different wounds. Pointing to one of the "casualties," I said to the group, "This man has severe brain damage. What would you do with him?" A reply from the back of the class: "Make him an officer!"
