He wanders through the thick jungle for days upon days, and it seems like his journey's going to amount to nothing. As he ventures deeper into it, his attention is drawn to something hanging overhead in the canopy and decides to take a closer look. Suddenly, he falls into a trap, is knocked unconscious and wakes up tied to a stake with a fire burning slowly underneath him. He cries out for help, and is answered by what is obviously one of the tribesmen, who informs him that he is going to be served as dinner to the leader of the tribe. "But you don't understand!" he cries, "You can't do this to me! I'm an editor for the New Yorker magazine!" "Ah," replies the tribesman, "Well soon you will be editor- in-chief!" _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ Grand Prismatic Spring 44.525049, -110.83819 Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming, USA _____________________________________________________

Police were summoned to a McDonald’s in Nashville due to a “male subject who was locked in the womens restroom naked,” according to a court affidavit. Restaurant management reported that the man had “been there all day.” A patrolman reported encountering Brody Young, 25, in the bathroom. Young, the cop added, “was indeed naked.” Young, seen at right, was “erratic and doing jumping jacks and hitting the wall,” reported the cop, who noted a strong chemical odor in the bathroom, evidence that the intoxicated Young had likely been huffing. Deemed a “danger to himself and others,” Young was taken into custody and charged with several misdemeanors. “Mr. Young has priors for huffing,” the affidavit states. During a court appearance this morning, Young pleaded guilty to criminal trespass and was fined $329. Prosecutors dropped indecency and public intoxication counts. Young, who is barred from entering the McDonald’s (seen below), remains locked up in the county jail due to an outstanding warrant.
Tech Support Pits From: Jai Re: Icon text Boxes Dear Webby I just added a new desktop photo, and it looks awful with all those black boxes all over the screen. Blah! Alas, I am so bad, I cannot find it in Tweak IU. There is no setting there, I went thru every tiny part of it and could not find it. Would it be possible for you to give me more information as to "how to"? I sure would appreciate it. I really want the transparent backgrounds!!! Thanks my friend, Jai Dear Jai couldn't remember how to do it, so I looked it up. Seems I last wrote about it in May 2005: The icon text background transparency has absolutely nothing to do with system performance, but that's where the toggle for it is. 1. Open the Control Panel 2. Click System 3. Click the Advanced tab 4. Click Settings in the Performance section 5. Select Custom 6. Check the "Use drop shadows for icon labels on the desktop" checkbox 7. Click OK until you close the windows Have FUN DearWebby

Bob moved into an apartment and went shopping for cleaning equipment. His cart was loaded with a broom, mop, dust-pan, sponges and a full array of cleaning products. At the last minute he topped off his cart with a lone food purchase -- a large bag of potato chips. Seeing the checkout clerk's quizzical look, he explained, "I'm a very messy eater."

Nine year old Little Johnny, was asked by his mother what he had learned in Sunday school. "Well, Mom, our teacher told us how God sent Moses behind enemy lines on a rescue mission, to lead the Israelites out of Egypt. When he got to the Red Sea, he had his engineers build a pontoon bridge and all the people walked across safely. Then he used his walkie-talkie to radio headquarters for reinforcements. They sent bombers to blow up the bridge so that the cops could not follow them, and all the Israelites were saved." "Now, Johnny, is that really what your teacher taught you?" his mother asked, scornfully. "Well, no, Mom. But if I told it the way the teacher did, you'd never believe it." ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from No More Soggy Sandwiches Instead of making the sandwich before you leave, pack the sandwich ingredients separately.

In some languages, though, such as Russian, a double negative is still a negative. However," he continued, "there is no language wherein a double positive can form a negative." A voice from the back of the room piped up, "Yeah. Right." ___________________________________________________

>From Lilly When my husband was a student at Tennessee Temple University, I often asked him to do errands after class, tying ribbons on his fingers to remind him. A good sport, he didn't protest, even though his classmates obviously noticed my little reminders. One day he had to have a mole removed from above his ear and emerged from the doctor's office with his head wrapped in a white bandage. When he walked into class, everyone just stared. Finally one student blurted out, "Whatever your wife wants you to remember today, it must be REALLY important." ____________________________________________________
