Gradually the satellites took over the surveillance job and the DEW line got abandoned and just sat there rusting away quietly. Only recently some contractors were sent up there to dismantle the sites and bury or cart away the remains. One mechanic stationed there asked his buddy at home to arrange a date for him when he got leave. The buddy did so, but told the girl that she'd better be careful, as the guy had been working on the DEW line for 6 months. She replied, "No problem. I've been working on my 'DON'T line' for six years." ______________________________________________________ Larry's barn burned down and his wife, Susan, called the insurance company. Susan told the insurance company, "We had that barn insured for fifty thousand and I want my money." The agent replied, "Whoa there, just a minute, Susan. Insurance doesn't work quite like that. We will ascertain the value of the barn just before it burned, and provide you with a new one of comparable worth, up to a maximum of fifty thousand dollars." There was a long pause before Susan replied, "In THAT case, I'd like to cancel the policy on my husband RIGHT friendly NOW!" ______________________________________________________ Aetna smoking without a permit ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ >Reported by Lillemor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Matthew Campus, 23, Wilmington, Illinois
Illinois man punched girlfriend, hid in vacant apartment, blocked jail cell toilet and masturbated A Wilmington man started Thanksgiving morning by punching his girlfriend and hiding out from the cops in an empty apartment, then blocked up his holding cell toilet with clothes, masturbated, tried to escape from a moving squad car and bit an officer, police said. By early afternoon, 23-year-old Matthew Campus had ended up in the Will County jail. He appeared in court Friday morning but his bond information was not available. Officers were sent to Campus’ County Road home and spoke to his girlfriend, who reportedly said he punched her several times “during an argument over alcohol.” Campus’ sister witnessed the attack, police said. Campus hid out in a vacant apartment in his building, police said, but he was hunted down by two officers. The cops carted Campus off to the police station but once he got there, he “started threatening officers and their families with physical violence,” police said. “While being placed into a holding room Campus spit on the officers. Once in the holding room Campus removed his clothing and began to masturbate and continued to make threats to the officers. Campus then packed some of his clothing into the toilet of the holding room and attempted to flood the room.” At this point, the cops loaded Campus into a squad car so they could take him over to the county jail. “While being transported, Campus attempted to escape by breaking a portion of the prisoner transport partition and trying to climb to the rear storage area and door hatch on Route 53 in Elwood,” police said. “The Elwood Police Department responded to assist.” At the jail, “Campus continued to threaten officers and deputies,” police said, and he was taken to Presence St. Joseph Medical Center. “Campus continued to be aggressive towards paramedics and medical staff, using profanities and spitting on them and officers,” police said. “Campus damaged equipment at the medical center and bit a police officer.” Campus was returned to jail after a brief stay at the hospital.
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Lynn Re: Why not show lower 130 in graph? Dear Webby, Who told you about my lower 130? Just kidding. I don't understand why deduct the 130 and not show it in the graph. What is the reasoning behind that? Wouldn't that distort the graph? Lynn Dear Lynn There is no change in the lower 130, so we can ignore that. It is as if you were simply covering up that part of the graph and only looked at the top. By only looking at the changing tops, and stretching the colums in the graph so that the few pounds of change are stretched the full height of the graph, you see the actual changes greatly and equally emphasized. 4 - 5 pounds change are a tiny wiggle of 150, but a significant jump of 20. That is all we are doing. We justb cover up the bottom 130 and zoom the upper balance to the full height of the graph. Unlike what the Gullible Warming grant recipients do, who can't predict next Tuesday's weather but claim the polar ice caps will melt in 2050 unless they get more grant money, you simply zoom onto and visualize the changes.

____________________________________________________ Arthur goes into the travel agency and proclaims, "I've seen your ad about a $49.00 trip to Hawaii, and I'd like to go." The travel agent says, "Listen, friend, this is my first day here, but I know about all the details of that crumby $49.00 offer, and believe me, you DON'T want it. Take the next best offer, which is only $1,399.00." "Oh, no you don't," says the Arthur, "you're not going to catch ME with that bait and switch. The ad says `$49.00 to Hawaii,' and THAT's what I want." "Okay," says the agent, who takes his money then grabs a baseball bat from under the desk and hits him on the head. Arthur wakes up a few hours later, on a raft out in the Pacific Ocean! He looks around, and there's NOTHING, only he and another guy on the raft. "What are we going to do?" cries our hero, "surely they'll send a ship for us. Do we get meals and booze?" "I don't think so," responds his new-found travelling companion, "they didn't last year, and if you don't have any booze in your back pocket, you are out of luck." ____________________________________________________ The tough businessman was feeling very ill and went to the doctor. The medical man examined him and backed away, saying: "I'm sorry to tell you this, but you have an advanced case of highly infectious rabies. You must have had it for some time. It will almost certainly be fatal." "Could you give me a pen and paper?" said the businessman. "Do you want to write your will?" "No, I want to make a list of all the people with overdue invoices, and then I am going out for a few bites." ____________________________________________________
