An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Rodney Mark Hendrix, 49, Denver, Colorado
Colorado burglar arrested in jail after poopy shorts are analyzed a year later It was the doo doo that did him in. Rodney Mark Hendrix, 49, is accused of burglarizing a Denver pre-school and church in August 2014 and was caught due to a DNA test of a pair of poopy shorts left in a bathroom at the crime scene. A pre-school employee noticed the crap-stained clothes and put them in a plastic bag before the police arrived, according to the arrest affidavit. The responding officer took the contaminated shorts into evidence, but it took 13.5 months for them to worm their way through the forensic labs, according to Lynn Kimbrough, a spokesperson for the Denver District Attorney. "In Colorado, a DNA sample is taken of anyone who is arrested for a felony," Kimbrough told HuffPost. "So when they ran the unknown sample, his DNA was already in the system." Kimbrough didn't want to venture a guess as to what the poopy shorts smelled like after more than a year. Hendrix is accused of stealing two guitars from the church and numerous electronic items from the school, with a combined total value of $4,072. He was charged earlier this week of two counts of burglary, two counts of theft, and one count of identity theft, according to the arrest affidavit. The suspect was already in custody in the Colorado Department of Corrections on unrelated theft and drug cases when the s*** hit the fan, according to the Denver Post. Hendrix is is scheduled to appear in Denver County Court on Oct. 16 to be formally advised of the charges, according to CBS Denver.
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Karl Re: Multiple browsers Hi Webby, Another great thing about running two different browsers side by side is you can have two accounts with the same company open at the same time. For example, I sometimes have my work gmail account open while having my personal gmail account open. If I only used one browser, I'd have to sign out of one or the other. Right now I have 3 browsers open. Firefox, SeaMonkey, and Lynx. I've had as many as four. People still use Lynx? I'm limited to five gigs a month. I read a lot of news articles on Lynx because it doesn't download all the crap on web pages. The average Lynx page download seems to be about 37K. Versus the 2-3 megs per page using a regular browser with javaScript enabled. Is it HTML 5 that brought us the bottomless webpage? God, I hate that. All those self loading videos and ads. It burns a lot of bandwidth plus it slows the system down. If you have anybody in the Denver area that's interested in making the switch to Linux, you can put them in touch with me. Karl Dear Karl Good point! Sometimes, when I am in the middle of a form on a borwser and don't want to leave that page, I open a different tab, but when I already have a lot of tabs open, then it is definitely better to open a different browser. I agree, for just reading text nothing gets even close to good ol Lynx on Linux. Have FUN! DearWebby _____________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________ >From Ed I boarded the train and took my seat. The seat next to me was empty, but not for long. A young mother boarded with her 5-year-old daughter and Mom sat down in the seat beside me. I offered my seat to the little girl but Mom said no, she'd sit the young one on her lap. So here I am holding my roses, now with a little lady straining to see what I was holding. "What ya got, mister?" she asked. (Mom is getting a bit flustered and tells her to mind her business.) I leaned the "package" over a bit and she looks and says loudly, "Ohhhh, ROSES!, who are they for?" (Now, Mom is embarrassed and tapping her on the rear telling her to sit down.) I said, "they're for my girlfriend". The little 5 year old said, again with a loud voice, "WOW, pretty RED ones, and a LOT of them, too! Man, you really must have f****d up!" Her mother turned as red as the roses, but all the other passengers bust a gut laughing. ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Homemade Cat Litter Box After seeing a nifty cat box with a high price tag, I decided to make my own. It is a tote with a hole cut in the top of the lid. I had empty totes already so that didn't cost me anything. The litter does not get kicked out at all. Occasionally some is tracked, but it is way better than it being kicked out. My cats love it too. Additionally, I did buy a cat pan set that has two pans and a sifter for like $18 at one of the big box stores. The solid pan fits perfectly in my tote. I still have to disinfect the big tote, but not as often as I do the inside pans. Overall, it is less cumbersome. By mreynolds [1]] ______________________________________________________

When she hadn't called within a half hour, the doctor called and asked her what had happened. She said, "Well, I didn't have a thermometer, so I put a barometer on his chest and it said dry, so I gave him a pint of beer and he went off to work!" ___________________________________________________
