Today's Bonehead Award: Troopers Arrest Millsboro Man For 7th DUI _______________________________________________ If you like the Humor Letter, please vote! _______________________________________________ The important work of moving the world forward does not wait to be done by perfect men. --- George Eliot (1819 - 1880) A little learning is a dangerous thing but a lot of ignorance is just as bad. --- Bob Edwards _______________________________________________ German scientists dug 50 meters underground and discovered small pieces of copper. After studying these pieces for a long time, Germany announced that the ancient Germans 25,000 years ago had a nation-wide telephone network. Naturally, the British government was not that easily impressed. They ordered their own scientists to dig too. 100 meters down, they found small pieces of glass and they soon announced that the ancient Brits 35,000 years ago already had a nationwide fiber network. Scottish scientists were outraged. They dug 200 meters underground, but found absolutely nothing. So they concluded that the ancient Scotts 55,000 years ago had cellular telephones under their kilts.. ________________________________________________` ____________________________________________________

DearWebby's Tech Support Pits From: Lorne Re: What is a Botnet ? Dear Webby, You mentioned "Botnet" again. This time, I am asking what the heck that is. Lorne Dear Lorne A Botnet is not a real network. It is simply a whole lot of infected machines, that have their back door open. Every now and then the virus vendor, who opened their back door, sends them a list of tens or hundreds of thousands of addresses, that they got from hacking AOL or Yahoo or Verizon, and the text for a spam email. Then the infected machine waits until there is nothing heavy going on, and sends that spam. Those spams sometimes have a fictitious sender email, and sometimes forge the recipient's address as the sender. Some of those botnets use many thousands of infected machines, and can really pollute the net with a ton of spam. The people, who paid for those machines, aren't really their owners anymore, after they have been infected. And they don't even notice that their machine sends out Millions of spams. Do we get annoyed with people, who don't protect their machines? YES, we DO! Have FUN! DearWebby

A fellow decides to take off early from work and go drinking. When he finally gets home, he starts tiptoeing up the stairs. Halfway up the stairs, he falls over backwards. An empty pint bottle in his back pocket broke, and carved up his buttocks. A few minutes later, as he was undressing, he noticed blood, so he checked himself out in the mirror and noticed the injury. He repaired the damage as well as he could under the circumstances and went to bed. The next morning, his head was hurting, and his rear was hurting, and he was hunkering under the covers trying to think up some good story, when his wife came into the bedroom. "Well, you really tied one on last night," she said. "Where'd you go?" "I worked late," he said, "and I stopped off for a couple of beers." "A couple of beers? That's a laugh," she replied. "You got plastered !" "What makes you so sure I got drunk last night, anyway?" he asked. "Well," she replied, "my first big clue was when I got up this morning and found a bunch of Band-Aids stuck to the mirror."

Thanks to Sandie for this story: Where it all began A little girl wrote to Sarah Palin and asked; 'How did the human race start?' Sarah Palin answered, 'God made Adam and Eve; They had children; and so was all mankind made.' Two days later the girl wrote to Michelle Obama and asked the same question. Michelle Obama answered, 'Many years ago there were monkeys from which the human race evolved.' The confused girl went to her father and said, 'Dad, how is it possible that Sarah Palin told me the Human race was created by God, And Michelle Obama said they evolved from monkeys.' The father answered, 'Well, Dear, it is very simple, Sarah told you about her ancestors and Michelle told you about hers.' ___________________________________________________ Daily tip from font color="#009990"> Finding Cheap Plants Ask your neighbor if you can have a start or take a cutting of one of their plants.

Spectacular Photos From The Revamped Hubble Telescope
___________________________________________________ Was it J.Edgar Hoover who once said: "Legalize crime, then tax them out of business!" ? The government of England seems to have been inspired by that and is taxing itself out of the taxing business. They have raised the tax on cigarettes so high that officially admitted over 1/3 (-but actually over 60%-) of the cigarettes smoked in the UK are smuggled and tax free cigarettes. Officially smoking has increased 6.5% in the last year. Since they probably didn't check with all the smugglers, that figure is probably closer to 10%. Since smoking is the leading cause of statistics, the unemployment rate is expected to drop accordingly, as more people find jobs in compiling statistics. ___________________________________________________ During a phone conversation, my niece mentioned that she was taking a psychology course at university. "Oh, great," I said, "Now you'll be analyzing everyone in the family." "No, no," she replied. "I don't take abnormal psychology until next semester." ___________________________________________________ The other day I was waiting for a friend getting ready to go to a meeting. She sat there and put on eyebrow pencil, eye shadow, eyeliner, eyelashes, mascara, toner, blush and lipstick and all kinds of stuff I don't even know the names of, then turned to me and said, "Does this look natural?" __________________________________________________
