An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Taurus Jabriel Brown 19, Clearwater, Floriduh
Invalid excuse ever for fleeing a police officer A wonderfully quotable Florida gang member who tried to run from a cop after being found with marijuana explained that, “I don’t like white people touching me, white people do weird stuff.” Officer Joseph May was at a Clearwater gas station early Tuesday morning when he was approached by Taurus Jabriel Brown, whom the cop recognized as “a gang member from the community I work in,” according to a police report. Brown, 19, told May that he “would like to be a police officer one day.” The teen then shook hands with the cop, who noticed a marijuana blunt tucked behind Brown’s ear. “Is this weed?” May asked. “How stupid are you?” After being asked to place his hands behind his back, Brown reportedly “tensed, pulled away, and attempted to run out of the front door.” He did not get far, thanks to a takedown move executed by the Clearwater Police Department patrolman. “Damn, man, all this for weed. Wow, bro, you must want to make an arrest,” said Brown, who added, “I’ll plead guilty, I’ll go to court and plead guilty, please don’t take me to jail. Can you tell the judge I plead guilty?” When Officer May asked Brown why he tried to flee, the teen replied, “I don’t like white people touching me, white people do weird stuff.” Asked by May to further expound on his thoughts, Brown said, “Nah, I’m playing. I let you catch me.” But he then added, “White people are weird as fuck, doe.” Brown, pictured above, was charged with pot possession and obstruction, both misdemeanors. He remains locked up in the county jail on $300 bond.
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Gwenda Re: Linux on a stick Dear Webby, I have heard about Linux on a stick. Is that something real or just a phrase? Where can I get one? Gwenda Dear Gwenda Anybody who has a linux system can make a "Live CD" for you, to try out their flavor of Linux. Nowadays they can even use a thumb-drive or camera chip for that. A "Live CD", whether it is on a CD, DVD, Thumb-Drive or camera chip lets you boot up into Linux and run Linux without uninstalling Windows. It just temporarioly nudges it over a bit. Naturally, with the Operating System on a thumb drive or camera chip, things are a bit slower, than if Linux was installed on the hard drive. However, it does give you a nearly complete look and feel of that particular flavor of Linux. Then you get a stick from some other friend or neighbor with a different flavor of Linux. Try not to get those people together. They tend to get right religious about the advantages of their chosen flavor. Once you have chosen one flavor, that you like, for example Ubuntu, which is very popular for home and small to medium offices, you can tell it to do a full installation onto the hard drive. It will nudge Windows over a bit, make a new partition and put the Linux operating system on that. Don't worry, it is not going to ask you any weird questions. It is all done for you. After that you still get the dual-boot choice on start-up, selecting whether to run in Windows or in Linux. Some people also use Linux sticks when they go traveling. They stick that into a motel courtesy computer, reboot, and are in their familiar Linux desktop, without any of the restrictions the motel put onto the motel's Windows. A standard 4 GB camera chip is plenty for Linux plus a lot of space left over for pictures. Linux typically takes a bit less than 2 GB. Have FUN! DearWebby _____________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________ One day the first grade teacher was reading the story of Chicken Little to her class. She came to the part of the story where Chicken Little tried to warn the farmer. She read, ".... and so Chicken Little went up to the farmer and said, "The sky is falling, the sky is falling!" The teacher paused then asked the class, "And what do you think that farmer said?" One little girl raised her hand and said, "I think he said: 'Holy Cow! A talking chicken!'" The teacher was unable to teach for the next 10 minutes. ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Nail File to Prevent Repetitive Stress Injuries Repetitive stress injuries, such as carpal tunnel or flexor tendonitis, can disable workers. As a RN, 12 hours of opening individually packaged pills caused my flexor tendonitis. I finally figured out that a steel nail file could open that packaging without twisting or prying. That file is pointed but not sharp. It easily tears into the packs without being a sharps hazard. It's as washable as my hands. It is even faster than the old way. It should be equally useful in other jobs requiring opening mail, cardboard boxes, etc. You can also take it places you can't take a pocket knife. If I had been a little brighter, I could have figured this out before I got flexor tendonitis injuries. Protect your livelihood. Your ability to work is your most valuable asset. If your job requires frequent and repetitive motions, think it through! By george burnett [2] ______________________________________________________
