______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Oscar Carrillo, Odessa, Texas Oscar Carrillo told police he was kidnapped and thata the kidnappers torched his car. Turns out he was behind on his car payments and did not want a repossesion on his record. Investigators discovered that Carrillo’s cell phone records showed that he made a total of five calls during the time he said he was kidnapped. It was also found that Carrillos vehicle had a past due balance of $3,275 and had been authorized for repossession on March 15. Police then determined that Carrillo intentionally set his car on fire and filed a false report to cover up his actions. They threw him in jail. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Christina Re: Where does spam come from? Dear Webby Where does all the spam come from? When I look up the IP numbers, I see Chinese servers, but that does not make sense at all. Christina Dear Garry Dear Christina What you saw were dumb relays in China. Some Chinese servers make money by allowing spammers to send their spam through them to disguise the origin, and some of them are simply so incompetent that they don't even notice it when spammers do that. They don't really care anyway. It's no big deal to them if the US loses a Billion Dollars in productivity every week because people have to waste time on getting rid of spam. There is no point in getting sidetracked with the misdirections. If we block China, then the spammers will just relay through Africa. What you have to look at is who paid the geeks to send the spam through China to you. It's the fake Rollex seller a few houses over from you, and the pill pusher across the street from the church, and that annoying yuppie insurance broker next door to Gramma's house. You have to look at who would benefit if you fell for the spam. Those are the real culprits. The FTC could easily find them, if they wanted to, or if they were encouraged enough. PayPal and the credit card companies will quite cheerfully comply with a subpoena and reveal who the beneficiary of an order was. They don't like spam either. In the meantime, just use >From Debbie I spent more than two hours in the beauty shop getting my hair permed, cut and styled. Relieved to be done, I went up to the receptionist to pay. "Good afternoon!" she said cheerfully. "And who's your appointment with today?" So I told her I had changed my mind and walked out.

Thanks to Sue for this story: Two medical students were walking along the street when they saw an old man walking with his legs spread apart. One of the students said to his friend: "I'm sure he has Petry Syndrome. Those people walk just like that." The other student says: "No, I don't think so. The old man surely has Zovitzki Syndrome. He walks just as we learned in class." Since they couldn't agree they decided to ask the old man. They approached the old man and one of the students said to him: "We're medical students and couldn't help but notice the way you walk, but we couldn't agree on the syndrome you might have. Could you tell us what it is?" The old man said: "I'll tell you, but first you'll tell me what you think." One of the students said: "I think it's Petry Syndrome." The old man said: "You thought.......... but you're wrong." Then the other student said: "I think you have Zovitzki Syndrome." The old man said: "You thought......... but you're wrong." So they asked him: "Well, what do you have?" And the old man said: "I thought it was a fart........... but I was wrong."

Dan married one of a pair of identical twin girls. Less than a year later, he was in court filing for a divorce. "OK," the judge said, "Tell the court why you want a divorce." "Well, your honor," Dan started, "Every once in a while my sister in law would come over for a visit, and because she and my wife are so identical looking, every once in a while I'd end up making love to her by mistake." "Surely there must be some difference between the two women," the judge said. "You'd better believe there is a difference, your honor. That's why I want the divorce." he replied.
