"Don't you have at least one other golf ball?" he asked. The other guy replied that he only needed one. "Are you sure?" the friend persisted. "What happens if you lose that ball?" The other guy replied, "This is a very special golf ball. I won't lose it, so I don't need another one." "Well," the friend asked, "what happens if you miss your shot and the ball goes in the lake?" "That's OK," he replied, "this special golf ball floats. I'll be able to retrieve it." "Well what happens if you hit it into the trees and it gets lost among the bushes and shrubs? "The other guy replied, "That's OK, too. You see, this special golf ball has a homing beacon. I'll be able to get it back -- no problem." Exasperated, the friend asks, "OK. Let's say our game goes late, the sun goes down, and you hit your ball into a sand trap. What are you going to do then?" "No problem," says the other guy, "You see, this ball is fluorescent. I'll be able to see it in the dark." Finally satisfied that he needs only the one golf ball, the friend asks, "Hey, where did you get a golf ball like that, anyway?" The other guy replies, "I found it." _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ A young ensign had nearly completed his first overseas tour of sea duty when he was given an opportunity to display his ability at getting the ship under way. With a stream of crisp commands, he had the decks buzzing with men and soon, the ship had left port and was steaming out of the channel. The ensign's efficiency has been remarkable. In fact, the deck was abuzz with talk that he had set a new record for getting a destroyer under way. The ensign glowed at his accomplishment and was not all surprised when another seaman approached him with a message from the captain. He was, however, a bit surprised to find that it was a radio message, and he was even more surprised when he read: "My personal congratulations upon completing your underway preparation exercise according to the book and with amazing speed. In your haste, however, you have overlooked one of the unwritten rules -- To avoid being courtmarshalled and hanged for stealing a capital ship, make sure the captain is aboard before getting under way." ______________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Leigh Ann Sepelyak, 38, Penn Hills, Pennsylvania Pennsylvania woman set boyfriend on fire then put out flames with urine Leigh Ann Sepelyak, 38, reportedly got into an argument with her boyfriend Grady Spencer III on Saturday evening. Police officers in Penn Hills, Pennsylvania, say that when Spencer fell asleep, Sepelyak doused him with petrol and ignited the fire with a lit cigarette. She then allegedly used a bucket of urine – which they had been using as a toilet – to put the fire out, Fox8 reports. Spencer was rushed to hospital for treatment after Sepelyak’s parents, who live in the same house, heard his screaming. The parents, when they heard screaming and smelled the smoke, helped put him out – I think with the same urine – and went to the hospital, Penn Hills Police Chief Howard Burton said. They never called the police, the hospital called [us]. Spencer suffered burns on 25% to 35% of his lower body. Sepelyak has now been charged with attempted homicide and arson charges. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Bill Re: Annoying Pop-ups Dear Webby, Dear Webby, Again, an annoying, but not serious problem. When I open a subscribed e-mail from "Gopher Central.com", two pop-ups from "Pulse TV" appear in Firefox. When I contacted their support, they blamed Firefox and suggested that I try Google, Internet explorer, Yahoo or Bing. I like Firefox and don't want to switch. I downloaded two add-ons for Firefox, as suggested on internet searches. Nothing has helped. Also, when I click on a link in "The Straight Dope", Internet Explorer, that I never use, pops-up. I am sure that you will have a solution to these problems. When all else fails, I go to you. Thanks. Bill Dear Bill I UNinstalled Internet Exploder. That helped tremendously. Even Microsoft gave up on it. When a link tries to force Internet Explorer, then you know some hacker is trying to do something sleazy. Honest links don't do that! GopherCentral feeds your address to stuff, that you did not subscribe to, like their video editions and Pulse TV and whatever. I can't recommend them. Since your PopUp problem happens only when you open mail from Gopher Central, the problem is their crap, not your browser's. They are just lying to you and treating you like a gullible idjit. Dump them. I tried them once, many years ago. Luckily I use MailWasher. That sends their stuff to hell without even downloading it or showing it in the list. I really don't give a hoot about whether their stupid PopUps open in hell or not. Not my problem. Whenever I get stuff, that triggers PopUps or anything I did not ask for, I spend 10 15 seconds to make a filter in MailWasher. I never see it again. If you DO want the silly newsletter, that has the PopUps as sleazy payload, try changing your subscription to text instead of HTML. With some newsletters you can do that. I used to have that option, but since I don't use PopUps or any payload, not enough people used that version, so I dumped it. Now you just have Regular Font and Large Font. Have FUN! DearWebby
Oliver Wendell Holmes once attended a meeting in which he was the shortest man present. "Dr. Holmes," quipped a friend, "I should think you'd feel rather small among us big fellows." "I do," retorted Holmes. "I feel like a dime among a lot of pennies."

the episode that made us all cry - Goodbye
____________________________________________________ Thanks to Sandie for this one: You Don't have To Own A Cat To Appreciate This One A couple was dressed and ready to go out for the evening. They turned, on a night light, turned the answering machine on the phone line, covered their pet parakeet and put the cat in the backyard. They phoned the local cab company and requested a taxi. The taxi arrived and the couple opened the front door to leave their house. The cat they had put out into the yard scooted back into the house. They didn't want the cat shut in the house because she always tries to eat the bird. The wife goes out to the taxi while the husband goes inside to get the cat. The cat runs upstairs, the man in hot pursuit. Waiting in the cab, the wife doesn't want the driver to know the house will be empty for the night. She explains to the taxi driver that her husband will be out soon "He's just going upstairs to say good-bye to my mother." A few minutes later, the husband gets into the cab. "Sorry I took so long," he says, as they drive away. "Stupid bitch was hiding under the bed. Had to poke her with a wet mop to get her to come out! She tried to take off so I grabbed her by the neck. Then I had to wrap her in a blanket to keep her from scratching me. But it worked. I managed to haul the fat ninny downstairs and throw her out into the back yard!" The cab driver hit a parked car. ___________________________________________________
Stolen Beauty of the Chin Girls
___________________________________________________ Arnold and his wife were cleaning out the attic one day when he came across a ticket from the local shoe repair shop. The date stamped on the ticket showed that it was over eleven years old. They both laughed and tried to remember which of them might have forgotten to pick up a pair of shoes over a decade ago. "Do you think the shoes will still be in the shop?" Arnold asked. "Not very likely," his wife said. "It's worth a try," Arnold said, pocketing the ticket. He went downstairs, hopped into the car, and drove to the store. With a straight face, he handed the ticket to the man behind the counter. With a face just as straight, the man said, "Just a minute. I'll have to look for these." He disappeared into a dark corner at the back of the shop. Two minutes later, the man called out, "Here they are!" "No kidding?" Arnold called back. "That's terrific! Who would have thought they'd still be here after all this time." The man came back to the counter, empty-handed. "They'll be ready Thursday," he said calmly.

____________________________________________________ Little Johnny drew a fly on the class grade book. It looked so realistic, that when Miss Baker saw the fly sitting on the notebook, she slammed it with a ruler. The fly didn't fly away. So she slammed the book once again, again the fly didn't fly away. This drove Miss Baker really mad, so she started to pound the book with the ruler and, as a result, the grade book became a bunch of torn sheets of paper. With the class laughing, she realized what had happened. Then Miss Baker called Little Johnny's father to school. "You see what your son did to our class grade book?" she said. "That's nothing." replied the father. "Last month, he drew a naked woman on the neighbor's fence and they had to pull splinters out of him for six hours straight, down at the hospital."
