"Now I'm going to drop this silver coin into this glass of acid. Will it dissolve?" "No sir," one student called out. "No?" queried the professor. "Perhaps you can explain why the silver won't dissolve in this particular acid." "Because if it would, you would have asked for MY coin!" _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ Slash, a well-known murderer, had been on death row for nearly 20 years. During that time, he had befriended the Warden. Now, the Warden still had a job to do, but that didn't stop him from treatin' Slash special from time to time. A week before Slash was to go to the electric chair, the Warden asked Slash if there was anything special he would like. Slash thought for a bit and said he would like the Warden to contact his wife and have her make meatloaf for him the rest of his life (which by this time, was short). Of course, the Warden complied and each day, Slash sat down and had a big feed of his wife's meatloaf. The night before the big day, another prisoner was allowed to visit Slash and asked him. "Aren't you afraid of dying tomorrow?" Slash answered' "I ain't gonna die tomorrow." The other prisoner then said, "but tomorrow is Friday and we all know, that's the day they're sendin' you to the electric chair." "Don't matter," said Slash, "if this meatloaf can't kill me, nothin' can." ______________________________________________________ ____________________________________

_____________________________________________________ From Vic While working in a Polish neighborhood in Chicago, I sustained a small injury to my eye from some flying debris around a construction site. It was giving me some trouble, so I visited an ophthalmologist in the local neighborhood. The doctor pointed to the eye chart, displaying the letters 'CVKPNWXSCZ'. "Can you read that?" the doc asked. "Can I read it?" I replied. "Yes, sure. I think I dated her sister!" _____________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Farris Kaloti, 28, Pinecrest, Florida Florida Man Accused of Posing as Uber Driver and Holding Women in South Carolina Arrested A South Florida man who is accused of assaulting women while posing as an Uber driver near the University of South Carolina has been arrested, authorities said.

After seeing reports about Kaloti, a Pinecrest detective who regularly visits Wholefoods recognized Kaloti as a frequent customer, and a Wholefoods customer reported seeing him in the store. Police set up surveillance and took him into custody. Kaloti is not known to have committed a crime in Pinecrest. Officials said they have been in contact with police in South Carolina. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Merv Re: SD for backups Dear Webby, In regards to CDs for backup, I've found some of my CDs, such as, well especially Kodak eventually get holes in them. If you hold them up to a light source the holes are evident. All my backups are done on flash-drives or external hard- drive media. Even SD cards are more reliable than CDs. I think due to my experience with CDs I wouldn't trust them with any important storage at all. Kind regards, Merv Australia Dear Merv I agree with you 100%. That is why I don't recommend CDs for backups. Commercial music CDs MIGHT last longer, because they are not burned but punched. I also agree that SD cards are much more reliable. The only part about them, that I don't like, are their small size and tendency to get lost. Some day I will have to get organized and devise a permanent way to store them. Have FUN! DearWebby

An elderly lady, who lived on the third floor of a boarding house, broke her leg. As the doctor put a cast on it, he warned her not to climb any stairs. Several months later, the doctor took off the cast. "Can I climb stairs now?" asked the little old lady. "Yes," he replied. "Thank goodness!" she said. "I'm sick and tired of shinnying up and down that drainpipe every time I have to take the garbage out to the curb or check my mail!"

Mrs. Donovan was walking down O'Connell Street in Dublin when she met up with Father Flaherty. The Father said, "Top o' the mornin' to ye! Aren't ye Mrs. Donovan and didn't I marry ye and yer husband 2 years ago?" She replied, "Aye, that ye did, Father." The Father asked, "And be there any wee ones yet?" She replied, "No, not yet, Father." The Father said, "Well now, I'm going to Rome next week and I'll light a candle for ye and yer husband." She replied, "Oh, thank ye, Father." They parted ways. Some years later they met again. The Father asked, "Well now, Mrs.Donovan, how are ye these days?" She replied, "Oh, very well, Father!" The Father asked, "And tell me, have ye any wee ones yet?" She replied, "Oh yes, Father! Three sets of twins and 4 singles, 10 in all!" The Father said, "That's wonderful!" How is yer loving husband doing?" She replied, "E's gone to Rome to blow up yer foo.. damn candle." ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Kitchen Time Saver - Squeeze Bottles Squeeze bottles like the ones restaurants often use for ketchup and mustard can be great for condiments in your kitchen. If you make your own salad dressing or buy it bulk, you can transfer the dressing to squeeze bottles for easy use. Squeeze bottles also work well for mayonnaise, jelly and many other condiments that usually come in jars. Tip provided by Thriftyfun.com ____________________________________________________ Jim was a just out of boot camp, and was on his first ship. About two hours out of port, he began to get a bit ill from the motion of the ship. He approached an ensign, also just out of training and on his first cruise. He saluted and said, "Excuse me sir, I am feeling seasick, and I wondered if I may have permis- sion to go downstairs to the dispensary." The ensign returned his salute and replied, "Sailor, you are in the Navy now. You don't go downstairs, you go below! There is no dispensary on this ship, there is sickbay. Not only that, that is not the floor, it is a deck, that is not the ceiling, it is the overhead, that is not a pillar, it is a stanchion, that is not a water fountain, it is a scuttlebutt. If I ever hear you using civilian words instead of Naval jargon, I till throw you out of that little round window over there."
Amazing hand cut paper animals.
A woman went into a hardware store to purchase a bale of peat moss. She gave a personal check in payment and said to the clerk, "I suppose you will want some identification." He replied, without hesitation, "No ma'am, that won't be necessary." "How come?" asked the woman. "Crooks don't buy peat moss." answered the clerk. ___________________________________________________
