One Florida man wanted tenants out of an apartment off the garage of his home. So, he went along with his pal's plan to get them out using a bomb. That's according to Orange County deputies, who said Nathan Martin and Bruce Steffenhagen admitted to setting off a pair of "acid bombs" homemade noise makers often involving plastic pop bottles and common household materials to create noise and ruckus, after they were arrested last week. Most kids have at one time or other used "pop bombs", usually involving putting some Altos mints into a nearly full pop bottle, capping it and tossing it. The sound created is identical to an 8 foot 2 x 8 standing on end on a driveway, and being knocked over by a bit of wind, - after the kids have retreated out of sight. Pop bombs don't do any damage unless they are tossed into a window box full of geraniums the morning of the flower competition. It apparently can mess them up and get the owner a lower ranking. Other than that, they are just nuisance noise. Usually, that is not a big deal, except the boneheads called them"acid bombs" and got some bored deputies all excited. Martin, 38, is in Orange County Jail on a charge of throwing or projecting explosives. Steffenhagen, 56, posted $15,000 bond after being charged with being a principal to discharge a destructive device. (It destroyed the pop bottle used to make noise) Both live with Steffenhagen's 86-year-old father, Jack Steffenhagen, in a Beach Boulevard house owned by Jack's living trust. Police were called to the house after neighbors heard two explosions.
Tech Support Pits From: Gloria Re: Digital zoom Dear webby, You have mentioned "digital zoom" a few times, and always recommended agaisnt it. What actually IS it? Gloria Dear Gloria Digital zoom is just enlarging a picture, the same as you do in your graphics program. As you may have noticed, when you do that, the picture gets coarse and/or fuzzy. You can do that much better and cleaner with your graphics program. Just totally ignore what they claim as "digital zoom". It is just BS to con newbies, who don't know any better. The only zoom that counts is optical zoom accomplished with the lenses. Have FUN DearWebby

After a day of grueling maneuvers under the blazing Texas sun, the platoon stood in front of the barracks. "All right, ladies, think about this," bellowed the drill instructor. "If you could have ten minutes alone, right now, with anyone in the world, who would it be?" Amid much mumbling, one voice was heard from the back row. "My recruiter."

An American tourist refused to be too greatly impressed with the masterpieces at the Louvre. "We've got plenty of priceless canvasses in the United States too," he declared. "I know," said the guide. "Rembrandt painted seven hundred pictures in his lifetime, and America has over ten thousand of them." ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Sorting Dirty Clothing Put a cardboard divider in your clothes hamper, one side for whites and one for darks.
