They wrote a grant proposal; got a huge chunk of money; hired a few additional sociologists, an anthropologist, and a family planning and birth control specialist; moved to town; rented offices; set up their computers; got squared away; and began designing their questionnaires and such. While the staff was busy getting ready for their big research effort, the project director decided to go to the local truck stop for a cup of coffee. He sat down at the counter, ordered his coffee, and while he was drinking it, he told the waitress what his purpose was in town, then asked her if she had any idea why the birth rate was so high. "Sure," said the waitress. "Every morning the six o'clock train comes through here and blows it's big horns for the crossing.

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Jose Vaca, 29, Bakersfield, California Man says he was shot 12 times while trying to prove 'theory' that not all cops are brutal in California A man who was shot by police last week after being pulled over says he wanted to prove to his friend that police officers are good people. Last Monday, 29-year-old Jose Vaca was pulled over while driving with a friend. He got out of the car holding a rifle, which he’d purchased at a flea market and was not legally allowed to have. "I exit my vehicle, I come to the front of the police vehicle, I put my butt of the rifle on the floor and I just put my hand up,” Vaca said. The weapon startled the police officers, who opened fire without warning, according to Vaca. "Soon as I hit the ground, I just attempted to play dead, and then they fired a couple more shots at me from the back as I was lying on the ground,” he said. Vaca says he never planned to shoot the officers. Instead, he thought this would be an opportunity to prove a point he’d made to a friend months ago about police brutality. "First thing that came to my mind is I'm already going to get pulled over. I know they're most likely going to take me in, but I’m going to try my theory real quick and see that it's true so she can believe there’s good officers in the world,” he said. Vaca says he was shot 12 times, with three of the bullets passing completely through his body; though the police report says only nine shots were fired. The man says it’s a “blessing” he’s alive. Looking back, Vaca considers his experiment ill-conceived because it went “completely bad.” However, the man says he still believes there are good police officers in the world. "They didn't know what to expect,” he said. Vaca is currently being held on $400,000 bail, booked on 11 different criminal counts. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Helen Re: scvhost problem Dear Webby, I just noticed this week that 50% of my cpu is constantly being used by Microsoft scvhost( netsvcs) and LocalServiceAndNoImpersonation. I looked online but the answers I saw were very confusing. Is there a way to fix this? Thank you, Helen Dear Helen Microsoft does not know. They don't have a usable answer. This is the best answer I found on the net: i had this problem. And turned out to be from the Team Viewer v6. i made the team viewer service on manual start from the services assistant (type in start->run "services" and it will open this assistant) and the problem is solved :). It seams that team view version 6 and windows 7 x64 ultimate are not working to well together :( if you need team viewer install version above 6 and cpu will stay come and the system will run great :)good luck Apparently it is just a W7 bug. I can also be set off by Media Center, and by a call for a Nvidia update. Just change them all to manual start. Have FUN! DearWebby
At the Henry Street Hebrew School, Goldblatt, the new teacher, finished the day's lesson. It was now time for the usual question period. "Mr. Goldblatt," announced little Joey, "there's somethin' I can't figger out." "What's that Joey?" asked Goldblatt. "Well accordin' to the Bible, the Children of Israel crossed the Red Sea, right?" "Right." "An' the Children of Israel beat up the Philistines, right?" "Er--right." "An' the Children of Israel fought the 'gyptians, an' the Children of Israel fought the Romans, an' the Children of Israel wuz always getting in trouble somewhere, right?" "Er, yes, you could say that," agreed Goldblatt. "So what's your question?" "What I wanna know is this," demanded Joey. "What wuz all the grown-ups doin"?

____________________________________________________ From a dozen years ago: POSTED: 8:48 am EST December 31, 2004 YORK, Pa. -- A Pennsylvania man is behind bars after a wild chase that ended up in the parking lot of a county prison. Thirty-seven-year-old Robert Sparks of Mechanicsburg is charged with a slew of crimes, including driving under the influence, driving with a suspended license, aggravated assault, simple assault, recklessly endangering another person, fleeing from police, hit-and-run, resisting arrest and escape. According to police in York, Pa., an officer started following Sparks after seeing him spinning the tires of his pickup. Several infractions later, the officer pulled him over. But police say the suspect sped off. Another officer who caught up with him, grabbed the tailgate and hopped aboard as the pickup drove off yet again. The officer smashed out the glass but still couldn't stop the driver, finally climbing off when the pickup hit a cruiser before speeding off again. The chase ended in the parking lot of the York County prison. Nobody was hurt, but police cars were smashed up, and much fun was had by all. ____________________________________________________

Our Universe - Galaxies It is almost impossible for the human mind to comprehend such size and distance. And yet, our galaxy is just the beginning of what is in outer space! There is something even more staggering. It is this: So many galaxies have now been detected that it has been said they "are as common as blades of grass in a meadow." About ten billion galaxies are in the observable universe! But there are many more beyond the range of today's telescopes. Some astronomers estimate that there are 100 billion galaxies in the universe! And each galaxy may contain hundreds of billions of stars! Your eyes glaze over reading that, but most people have no problem believing it. However, have you ever met anybody who believes a sign that says "Caution! Wet paint." and did not have to check it with their fingers ?
