Today, July 28 in
1866 The metric system was legalized by the U.S. Congress for
the standardization of weights and measures throughout the
United States. 
The United States is still the only industrialized country in
the world that does not use the metric system as its predominant
system of measurement, 
except for electricians and scientists. After 150 years the
metric system is creeping in, though. Wine and pop is sold in
metric units, many grocery items have both metric and Imperial
British units printed on them, and while vehicles are still
advertised as so many feet long, below the paint everything is
metric.

day in history.

I found one that matched my suit but it didn't have a price tag on it. So I asked the clerk, "Hey, buddy, how much is this tie?" He said, "Sixty-five dollars." I said, "What! I can buy a pair of shoes with that kind of money." He said, "Maybe, but with your neck, shoes would look silly." _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ One day at the dry-cleaning shop at Charleston Air Force Base, I overheard a young airman describe in great detail how he wanted his uniform cleaned and pressed. When he finished, the counter clerk asked, "Are you getting an award, or do you have an important military function to attend?" "Nothing like that," the airman said.

______________________________________________________ Thanks to Moe for reporting this one: An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Susan Kettell, 39, Sandwich, Massawhosits Woman arrested for drunken, topless road-rage assault A woman in Massachusetts is facing several felony charges after allegedly waving a dagger at another driver while topless in an apparent drunken road-rage attack. Susan Kettell, 39, of Sandwich, was driving a blue Ford Explorer on Saturday when police received a call from another driver who claimed the woman tried to crash into the victimís car. Kettell then pulled behind the victimís vehicle at a red light and began waving a double-edged dagger, the Sandwich Police Department announced Monday. Kettell then allegedly got out of the Explorer and ripped off her shirt before running bare-chested toward the victimís car while flailing the knife. The caller who contacted police, meanwhile, drove off, police said. Kettell, who police say was intoxicated at the time, was later found and placed under arrest. A male passenger inside her car was also intoxicated and was placed in protective custody, police said. Kettel was charged with operating under the influence, operating on a revoked driverís license, assault with a dangerous weapon and other charges, police said. No injuries were reported. Sorry, that mugshot is the only picture of Susan Kettell on the web. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Chris Re: "You have won" Dear Webby, I have gotten an e-mail from these people that I had won a prize. I have listed with 'Woman's Day' magazine for things to win. There was nothing in the e-mail about it being from Woman's Day magizine. I'm not sure if I should respond or not. Your information has always been the best so far on the web, can/could you help me with this one. It's isn't that much, but would help out the daughter if it's really true. Thanks again for the jokes/funnies/web help. Hope all is well with you and yours. Chris Dear Chris You may already be a winner, ... yeah sure. Trash it. They all want your address to send spam to you. Some of them even want money to supposedly get your winnings to you. Just trash their scam spam. If you really did win something, they would tell you outright, and not pester you with all kinds of confusion and hype. Have FUN! DearWebby
A newly married sailor was informed by the navy that he was going to be stationed a long way from home on a remote island in the Pacific for a year. A few weeks after he got there he began to miss his new wife, so he wrote her a letter. "My love," he wrote " we are going to be apart for a very long time. Already I'm starting to miss you and there's really not much to do here in the evenings. Besides that we're constantly surrounded by young attractive native girls. Do you think if I had a hobby of some kind I would not be so tempted? " So his wife sent him back a harmonica saying, "why don't you learn to play this?" Eventually his tour of duty came to an end and he rushed back to his wife. "Darling" he said, "I can't wait to get you into bed so that we make passionate love!" "First let's see you play that harmonica!"

___________________________________________________ A Newfie decides to travel across Canada to see the Pacific Ocean.When he gets to Nanaimo, he likes the place so much that he decides to stay. But first he must find a job. He walks into the MacMillan-Bloedel office and fills out an application as an "Experienced logger." It's his lucky day. They just happen to be looking for someone. But first, the bush foreman takes him for a ride in the bush in the company pickup truck to see how much he knows. The foreman stops the truck on the side of the road and points at a tree. "See that tree over there? I want you to tell me what species it is and how many board feet of lumber it contains." The Newfie promptly answers, "It's a Sitka Spruce and contains 383 board feet of lumber." The foreman is impressed. He puts the truck in motion and stops again about a mile down the road. He points at another tree through the passenger door window. He asks the same question. This time, it's a bigger tree of a different class. "It's a Douglas Fir, it has 690 board feet." says the Newfie. Now the foreman is really impressed. The Newfie has answered quickly and got the answers right without even using a calculator! One more test. They drive a little farther down the road, and the foreman stops again. This time, he points across the road through his driver side window. "And what about that one?" Before the foreman finishes pointing, the Newfie says, "A Yellow cedar,242 board feet." The foreman spins the truck around and heads back to the office. He's a little annoyrf because he thinks that the Newfie is smarter than he is. As they near the office, the foreman stops the truck, and asks the Newfie to step outside. He hands him a piece of chalk and tells him, "See that tree over there. I want you to mark an X on the front of that tree." The foreman thinks to himself, "Idiot! How does he know which is the front of the tree? " When the Newfie reaches the tree, he goes around it in a circle while looking at the ground. He then reaches up and places a white X on the trunk. He comes back to the foreman and hands him the chalk. "That is the front of the tree," the Newfie states. The foreman laughs to himself and asks sarcastically, "How in the heck do you know that's the front of the tree?" The Newfie looks down at his feet, while moving the toe of his left boot clockwise in the gravel, replies, "Cuz someone used the back side for an outhouse." He got the job!!

Go to a second-hand store, buy a pair of men's well used work boots, a really big pair, at least a size 13. 2. Put them outside your front door on top of a copy of 'Guns and Ammo' magazine. 3. Put a dog dish beside it. A really big dish. 4. Leave a note on your front door that says something like "Bubba, big Mike and I have gone to get more ammo, be back in 1/2 hour.
