Knowledge is power, if you know it about the right person. --- Ethel Mumford Insanity in individuals is something rare - but in groups, parties, nations and epochs, it is the rule. --- Friedrich Nietzsche (1844 - 1900) ______________________________________________________ A man is strolling past the mental hospital and suddenly remembers an important meeting. Unfortunately, his watch has stopped, and he cannot tell if he is late or not. Then, he notices a patient similarly strolling about within the hospital fence. Calling out to the patient, the man says, "Pardon me, sir, but do you have the time?" The patient calls back, "One moment!" and throws himself upon the ground, pulling out a short stick as he does. He pushes the stick into the ground, and, pulling out a carpenter's level, assures himself that the stick is vertical. With a compass, the patient locates north and with a steel ruler, measures the precise length of the shadow cast by the stick. Withdrawing a slide rule from his pocket, the patient calculates rapidly, then swiftly packs up all his tools and turns back to the pedestrian, saying, "It is now precisely 3:29 pm, provided today is January 10, which I believe it is." The man can't help but be impressed by this demonstration, and sets his watch accordingly. Before he leaves, he says to the patient, "That was really quite remarkable, but tell me, what do you do on a cloudy day, or at night, when the stick casts no shadow?" The patient holds up his wrist and says, "I suppose I'd just look at my watch." ________________________________________________ If you like the Humor Letter, please vote! ______________________________________________________ Our 4-year-old daughter's surgery was scheduled for 11:30 a.m. We were becoming anxious as time passed and no one came to get her. Finally at 12:30, the surgeon arrived at her room. Knowing my husband is a minister, the doctor asked us if many people were praying for this surgery. Edgy from the delay, I said, "They were praying for you an hour ago." With a smile, he shot back, "Thanks. The 11:30 surgery went very well." _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ Usually there's no computer problem I can't solve.

___________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Jayson Newlun, 26, North Kansas City, Missouri Police arrest man accused of sodomizing 1-year-old girl he was babysitting A man in Missouri was arrested Wednesday on sodomy charges of a 1-year-old girl he was babysitting. Jayson Newlun, 26, was a family friend, according to court documents reviewed by KMBC. The parents of the girl told police they left Newlun alone with their daughter, who was asleep at the time, while they went to the store. The mother realized she forgot something and when they returned home, they found Newlun in the baby's room. The mother told police she saw Newlun sexually assaulting her daughter while photographing the act. The girl's father attacked Newlun, hitting him with a dresser drawer and punching him multiple times, according to the court documents reviewed by KMBC. A neighbor intervened and broke up the altercation until police arrived. The girl's mother allegedly asked Newlun why he did such a thing to her daughter and he said he didn't know. When she told him that she hopes he goes down for this, he agreed with her, according to court documents. Newlun was arrested on a statutory sodomy charge and taken to the Clay County Detention Center.
From: Eric Re: Phish diverted Dear DearWebby, I'm not sure if it was someone's idea of a joke or an actual phishing scheme, but I got a pretty standard phishing email, went to the link and put in some completely BOGUS info. When I hit the continue button, it took me to the wikipedia page about phishing. Of course, I reported the email to spam cop. Have you seen or heard of this? Eric Dear Eric Most likely Spamcop had contacted the webhost of that phishing site, and the web host then promptly confiscated the domain from the phishers, and redirected the entire domain to the wikipedia page about phishing, just to piss the phishers off. That is pretty well standard procedure with the better web hosts. However, while fun, it is not really a good idea to enter the info about some local politician, you are still telling them that your IP number is live. Best is to do like MailWasher and just flush the crap and forget it. Have FUN! DearWebby

Thanks to Darlene for bringing back this Classic: THE POWER OF PRAYER? In a small conservative town, a man began construction so he could open a new Bar/Tavern. The local Church started a campaign to block the Bar from opening by daily prayers and working on petitions. Work progressed right up until the week before opening, when a lightning strike hit the Bar and burned it to the ground. The Church folks were rather smug in their outlook after that, right up until the Bar's owner sued the Church on the grounds that it was ultimately responsible for the demise of his building, either through "direct or indirect actions or means." The Church vehemently denied all responsibility or any connection to the building's demise in its reply to the court. When the judge looked over the paperwork at the hearing he commented, "I don't know yet how I'm going to decide this. It appears from the paperwork, we have a bar owner that believes in the power of prayer, and an entire Church congregation that doesn't!"

A lady came to the hospital to visit a friend. She had not been in a hospital for several years and felt very ignorant about all the new technology. A technician followed her onto the elevator, wheeling a large, intimidating looking machine with tubes and wires and dials. "Boy, would I hate to be hooked up to that thing," she said. "So would I," replied the technician. "It's a floor-cleaning machine." ___________________________________________________ Daily tip from Caring For Cut Flowers Cellphone Plans Review your cellphone plan once a year to make sure it still fits your needs.

___________________________________________________ My boss was complaining in our staff meeting the other day that he wasn't getting any respect. So he he went to a stationery store and bought a small sign that read, "I'm the Boss." He then taped it to his office door. Later that day when he returned from lunch, he found that someone had written on it with a red felt Mark-all: "Door signs require a permit from the Secretary." ___________________________________________________ Thanks to Marion for this story: My eleven-year-old son, Lee, wanted to check his height against mine, so we stood back back. When we turned around, he kept his hand in place and then exclaimed, "Mom, I'm up to the first line on your forehead!" ___________________________________________________

Thanks to Lori for this story: I am five feet three inches tall and pleasingly plump. After I had a minor accident, my mother accompanied me to the emergency room. The triage nurse asked for my height and weight, and I blurted out, "Five-foot-eight, 125 pounds." While the nurse pondered over this information, my mother leaned over to me. "Sweetheart," she gently chided, "This is not the Internet." ___________________________________________________
