I thoroughly disapprove of duels. If a man should challenge me, I would take him kindly and forgivingly by the hand and lead him to a quiet place, and kill him. --- Mark Twain (1835 - 1910) Wine makes a man more pleased with himself; I do not say that it makes him more pleasing to others. --- Samuel Johnson (1709 - 1784) "Science is facts; just as houses are made of stones, so is science made of facts; but a pile of stones is not a house and a collection of facts is not necessarily science." --- Henri Poincare ______________________________________________________ Bubba goes to the revival and listens to the preacher. After a while, the preacher asks anyone with needs to come forward and be prayed over. Bubba gets in line. When it's his turn the preacher says, "Bubba, what you want me to pray about?" Bubba says, "Preacher, I need you to pray for my hearing." So the preacher puts one finger in Bubba's ear and the other hand on top of his head and prays a while. After a few minutes, he removes his hands and says, "Bubba, how's your hearing now?" Bubba says, "I don't know preacher, it's not until next Wednesday in Dallas. ______________________________________________________ After a church service on Sunday morning, a young boy suddenly announced to his mother, "Mom, I've decided to become a minister when I grow up." "That's okay with us, but what made you decide that?" "Well," said the little boy, "I have to go to church on Sunday anyway, and I figure it will be more fun to stand up and yell, than to sit and listen." ______________________________________________________ Click through for the big picture Not Basking Robin

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Eric Campbell, 21 Edward Campbell, 54 Indian Acres, Texas Father and son criminal duo, who murdered and robbed an old couple, set their house on fire, took their bodies on a 4 hour ride to a different state, and shot at two cops. A Texas father and son went on a multi-state crime spree Thursday, robbing and killing a couple in North Carolina before transporting the bodies to West Virginia, where they shot two officers, police say. Eric Campbell, 21, and his father, 54-year-old Edward Campbell, both of Indian Acres, Texas, were pulled over in Lewisburg, West Virginia on Thursday afternoon. They were in separate vehicles, one of which police flagged as stolen. Edward Campbell, who was driving a red truck at the time, allegedly opened fire on two officers, wounding both of them. Cops returned fire and hit the suspect in the leg. Edward fled, but was later collared as he hid in the woods. Eric turned himself in about 90 minutes after the shootout. Both wounded officers have just superficial wounds. Upon further investigation, cops found the bodies of Jerome Faulkner, 73, and his 62-year-old wife, Dora, under a mattress in the bed of the red pickup truck, WVNS reports. Investigators believe the Campbells chose the couple at random to rob and murder in their Oak Hill, North Carolina home. The suspects allegedly lit the house on fire at about 7 a.m., threw the bodies in the back of the truck and drove nearly four hours to West Virginia. "When we first got the call, we thought it was just a structure fire," Granville County, North Carolina Sheriff Brindell Wilkins told WVNS. "As things progressed, we found some things here that didn't look right." Both of the suspects were charged with malicious assault and attempted murder of an officer. Eric Campbell, whose mugshot is above, was held without bail at the Southern Regional Jail in West Virginia, while his father is still hospitalized with a bullet wound to the leg. The officers, identified as Jeromy Dove and Nicholas Sams, are recovering with superficial wounds from the shooting. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Ron Re: Monitor colors Dear Webby My monitors (work and home) show colors as different as Fuji and Kodak. When I fix a picture to look right at home, it looks crappy on the monitor at work. And vice versa. Is one of them dying or is there an adjustment to save it? Ron You can adjust the color temperature of a monitor. Just play with the menu buttons until you get to a menu that has big numbers, like 4500 and going up to 9300, or sometimes even higher. A low number gives you a warm lighting, like candle light, a high number gives you a hot light, like mercury vapor or arc, or "cool white" fluorescent. Straight from the factory, most monitors come set at 9300, and most people never change that setting. If you set your monitor to 9300, then if a picture looks OK for you, it will look OK for most people. To see how a print job will look, lower the numbers. Have FUN!

There was a large revival meeting on the outskirts of town, and at the appropriate corner there was a large sign proclaiming...."If you are weary of sin and want to be saved, turn here, go 100 yards, and come into the revival tent." Below the sign someone had hung another smaller one. "If NOT weary, call Sherry 555-3550." ______________________________________________________ A college drama group presented a play in which one character would stand on a trap door and announce, "I descend into hell!" A stagehand below would then pull a rope, the trapdoor would open, and the character would plunge through. The play was well received. When the actor playing the part became ill, another actor who was quite overweight took his place. When the new actor announced, "I descend into hell!" the stagehand pulled the rope, and he actor began his plunge, but became hopelessly stuck. No amount of tugging on the rope could make him descend. One student in the balcony jumped up and yelled: "Hallelujah! Hell is full!"
