Today, February 13 in
1945 At the end of World War II, Allied aircraft began bombing the
German city of Dresden. Thousabds of bomnbers for three days
reduced the city to rubble. The strategically unimportant city was
filled with refugees from the Russian front, and the idea was that
those refugees would tell the tale of psychologigal warfare throughout
Germany. However, after about 200,000 - 500,000 people had been
killed, there was nobody left to tell the tale. Even 20 years later
most Europeans had not heard about it yet.

_____________________________________________________ In a recent Harris On-line poll 38,562 men across the US were asked to identify woman's ultimate fantasy. 97.8% of the respondents said that a woman's ultimate fantasy is to have two men at once. While this has been verified by a recent sociological study, it appears that most men do not realize that in this fantasy, one man is cooking and the other is cleaning. _____________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by 4 Indonesian dope smugglers No names, they will be hanged shortly anyway. Indonesian Navy seized over a ton of crystal meth that smugglers attempted to disguise in bags of rice The MV Sunrise Glory was intercepted by a navy boat patrolling the Phillip Channel between Singapore and Batam. It was flying the flag of Singapore but the crew changed it for the Indonesian one as the military vessel approached. When the boat was taken to Batam for inspection, 1,029 kilograms (2268 pounds) of crystal methamphetamine were found stashed inside 41 sacks of rice. Navy deputy chief Vice Admiral Achmad Taufiqoerrochman said ‘Last night we discovered more than one tonne of crystal meth and the amount might increase because we have not finished checking everything.’ Four crew members were arrested and the men told their captors that they had planned on taking the drugs to Australia. Indonesia has some of the toughest anti-drugs laws in the world, including capital punishment for traffickers. Officials initially suspected that the Taiwanese fishing boat was a part of a drug syndicate wanted by the Indonesian military. As well as the huge stash of drugs, at least four different national flags and fake documents were found on board, prompting suspicion that the vessel was a ‘phantom ship’ which changes its name and flag depending on which country’s waters it is sailing in to avoid detection. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Sandie Re: Screensaver password Dear Webby, Can you tell us all how to set up a screen saver password...

John was driving home late one night when he picked up a hitchhiker. As they rode along he began to be suspicious of his passenger. John checked to see if his wallet was safe in the pocket of his coat that was on the seat between them, but it wasn't there! So he slammed on the brakes, ordered the hitchhiker out, and said, "Hand over the wallet immediately!" The frightened hitchhiker handed over a billfold, and John drove off. When he arrived home, he started to tell his wife about the experience, but she interrupted him, saying, "Before I forget, John, do you know that you left your wallet at home this morning?

A young man finally got a job at the Post Office. He was full of energy and eager to please. The supervisor agreed to work with the new employee, even though he had been warned that he was still immature and knew nothing of the job. The first job the supervisor gives the young man is in sorting, and much to everyone's surprise, the new employee separated the letters so fast that his motions were literally a blur. The supervisor was very pleased and asked the young man to come into his office at the end of the day. He said, "I just want you to know that we are all very proud of you. You're one of the fastest workers we have ever had." The humble young man said, "Thank you, sir. And tomorrow, I'll try to do even better." "Better?" the supervisor asked with astonishment. "How can you possibly do better?" The young man smiled proudly and said, "Tomorrow, I am going to read the addresses." ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Cleaning the Chimney If you have a fireplace or wood burning stove, it is the time of year to have your chimney cleaned and inspected.

"You probably got the cheaper gas," he said. "That could account for the engine running so rough." "No, the gas wasn't cheaper!" she replied indignantly. "Well, how much did it cost?" asked the husband probingly. "It cost the same as always." said the wife. "I told the man to put in the usual ten dollars worth."

The very frugal business manager was checking on the travel expenses of his salesmen, when he began to mutter, then yell. One of the salesmen worked up his courage and came over to ask the boss what was wrong. "Look at this crook's travel expenses," the boss said. "How could he possibly spend forty dollars a day for meals in that small town in Ohio?" "It's easy," explained the salesman cheerfully. "All you have to do is skip breakfast." ___________________________________________________
