Today's Bonehead Award: Police Find Maserati Filled With Whip-Its __________________________________________ A lady on her first visit to Yellowstone National Park said to her guide, "Look at all those big rocks. Wherever did they come from?" "The glaciers brought them down," said the guide. "But where are the glaciers?" "The glaciers," said the guide in a weary voice, "have gone back for more rocks." __________________________________________ __________________________________________ Is Windows a virus? No, Windows is not a virus. Here's what viruses do: 1.They replicate quickly - okay, Windows does that. 2.Viruses use up valuable system resources, slowing down the system as they do so - okay, Windows does that. 3.Viruses will, from time to time, trash your hard disk - okay, Windows does that too. 4.Viruses are usually carried, unknown to the user, along with valuable programs and systems. Sigh... Windows does that, too. 5.Viruses will occasionally make the user suspect their system is too slow (see 2) and the user will buy new hardware. Yup, Windows does that, too. Until now it seems Windows is a virus but there are fundamental differences: Viruses are well supported by their authors, are running on most systems, their program code is fast, compact and efficient and they tend to become more sophisticated as they mature. So Windows is not a virus. It's a bug. ___________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by

Police Find Maserati Filled With Whip-Its

Ziyuan Zhong, 22, Iowa City, Iowa, A 22-year-old Iowa woman was driving a Maserati littered with “several hundred” spent canisters of nitrous oxide when the vehicle was pulled over by police late Monday evening, according to court filings. When a computer check revealed that the registered owner of the 2014 luxury coupe had a “driving status of Barred,” Iowa City cops approached the vehicle after it pulled into a Kum & Go gas station around 10:45 PM. Behind the Maserati’s wheel was Ziyuan Zhong, who appeared under the influence. Seen at right, Zhong, cops reported, had “bloodshot, watery eyes, dilated pupils, impaired speech, and impaired balance.” The source of Zhong’s impairment apparently was scattered about the auto: “There were several hundred spent 'Whip- It' brand Nitrous Oxide canisters,” Officer Jeff Reinhard noted. Police also found three dispensers that are used with the canisters (which can be purchased in bulk for about 50 cents each). Zhong, who was alone in the Maserati, said the car was owned by a friend. While a breath test reflected no alcohol in Zhong’s system, she showed “measurable impairment” during a series of field sobriety tests. Following a “drug influence evaluation,” police concluded that the Iowa City resident was under the influence of an inhalant. Zhong reportedly admitted to having used “50-75 canisters” earlier that day, and that she “typically uses upwards of 200 canisters per week.” Cops reported that Zhong said she used the nitrous oxide “because it makes her feel good.” Zhong was arrested on multiple charges, including driving under the influence, possession of a fake ID, and possession of nitrous oxide. She was booked into the Johnson County jail, where she is being held without bond.
DearWebby's Tech Support Pits From: Jean Re: Networking W7 to W10 Dear Webby I am trying to network my W7 laptop to my hubby's new W10 desktop. That does not work like the home group between W7 machines used to work. Is microslop sabotaging W7? What is the way around that? Jean Dear Jean Yes, Microsoft-Dell-Acer-HP is indeed playing hardball. They want you to throw out perfectly good W7 machines and buy new W10 machines to keep employment in Asia up. So far I don't know a way around that hostile sabotage. Eventually some companies will build a detour around that, but so far I have not found one, that works. When I do find a way, I will definitely write about it here! Hopefully one of the subscribers will know more. Have FUN! DearWebby

* When his ...38-caliber revolver failed to fire at its
intended victim during a hold-up in Long Beach,
California, robber James Elliot did something that can
only inspire wonder: he peered down the barrel and tried
the trigger again. Happily for most concerned, this time
it worked. [saved the justice system millions of
dollars!]

* Laborer Alexander Robinson of Mobile, Alabama,
redefined the limits of tactlessness when he opened his
eyes after surgery to restore his sight and said
agreeably to his wife: 'Boy, you sure have got fat in
four years' [He has his sight back...but now he is
missing other things!]

* A Malaysian monkey that had been trained to gather
coconuts from trees demonstrated a pressing need for a
refresher course when it leapt onto the shoulders of a
passer-by in Kuala Lumpur and tried to twist his head
off.  The man was treated at a local hospital for a
sprained neck.
[consider himself lucky that the monkey wasn't trained to
retrieve walnuts!]

* Texan prisons have banned convicts on death row from
having a last cigarette, on the grounds that it is bad
for their health. [Oh this makes sense!  Who was the
genius that thought this up?]

My first grade daughter and her friend both needed new
boots as winter approached. The friend got in the car one
morning and finally had gotten her boots.

"Tina," I commented, "I see you got new boots!
Where did you get them?"

"At the store," she answered. 

"Which one?" I asked. She began looking at her new boots
and after a pause said, "Both of them!"

When the doctor had completed the exhaustive examination,
he told Becky to meet him back in his office when she had
finished dressing. From behind his desk, the doctor said,
"Well, I can't find any physiological reason for your
problem, but I suspect it's due to drinking."

"I'll bet you're right," replied Becky. "And, you know
what? I think it's utterly shameful!"

"Now, now," said the doctor. "Millions of people have a
problem with alcohol. It's nothing to be ashamed of."

"It certainly is!" Becky huffed, as she picked up her
purse and stood to leave. Pausing in the doorway, she
shook her head sadly at the doctor and said, "I'll come
back when you're sober."
