The fact that an opinion has been widely held is no evidence whatever that it is not utterly absurd; indeed in view of the silliness of the majority of mankind, a widespread belief is more likely to be foolish than sensible. --- Bertrand Russell (1872 - 1970), ______________________________________________________ At one of the last all girl schools in Dallas years ago, the instructor in a "Charm Course" was urging her students to give their escorts every chance to be gallant. "Remain seated in the truck until he has had time to step around and open the door for you," she said. Then, returning to reality, she added, "But, if the big, dumb klutz is in the restaurant ordering his steak or flirting at the waitress, ... don't wait any longer." ______________________________________________________ An Amish man answered a knock on his door one morning. An electric company worker handed him a piece of paper stating that the electric company would like to run a power line through his pasture. The Amish man said, "No, you can not." "Legally, that paper says we can," replied the line worker. As he turned and left returning to his co-workers in the field, the Amish man went to his barn and let his bulls into the pasture. The ground shook and a cloud of dust rose as the big 2500 pound Black Angus bulls rumbled toward the workers in the field. The Amish man hollered to the linemen: "Don't worry, just show those bulls your paper!" ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Roy for this picture: Click through for the big picture Trolltunga , Norway

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Jason Davis 33, Monroe, Michigan Fleeing Suspect Jason Davis Drives Right Into Ohio Prison's Parking Lot Police in Ohio say a Michigan man who drove away from a traffic stop smashed through a gate and landed right in a prison parking lot. Officers arrested the man early Wednesday after he drove around the outside of the Toledo Correctional Institution and then back into it's parking lot. Court records show that the charges against Jason Davis of Monroe, Michigan, include vandalism of government property, drug possession and failing to use his turn signal. Police tell The Blade newspaper in Toledo that they were able to arrest Davis after his vehicle ran over stop sticks that deflated his tires. The 33-year-old is due in court Thursday. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Eric Re: Nigerian Scams Dear Webby, I can't believe that people are still falling for these Nigerian Scams. Do you recommend forwarding them to the FTC as well as getting them over to Spam Cop? Eric Dear Eric They still fall for AOL too. And Hillary. FTC is a total waste of time. They pick one or two celebrity cases a year, and with all the other complaints they just make pretty graphs. Spamcop sends an email to the ISP of the scammer. About all you can do is be aware of those scammers and not fall for them. Have FUN!

Many birds may fly south, but those in the northern states have birds come in the winter, too. Add a birdseed bell and suet blocks on a low branch near the feeder and you can enjoy watching the little birds come to feed on bitter snowy winter days. By Evelyn from McHenry, IL ______________________________________________________ "You and your husband don't seem to have an awful lot in common," said the new tenant's neighbor. "Why on earth did you get married?" "I suppose it was the old business of 'opposites attract'," was the reply. "He wasn't pregnant and I was."

Tommy thinks for a moment and then says, "I'm not that stupid Miss, I know that is not a 'Dumb-Ass' !" _____________________________________________________ Sign in a stationery store: "For the man who has everything: A calendar - to remind him when payments are due."
