Today we bestow FOUR
Bonehead award one goes to a Scottish man who had to
be rescued by the coast guard during his attempt to sail the 500 miles from
Scotland to Iceland in a 4 yard long inflatable dinghy. It was only a few
hours before the dingy and the dinghy started going down.
award two, a "too dumb to be a criminal," bonehead award goes to an Ontario,
Canada woman who tried freeing her boyfriend from jail by showing up at the
jail pretending to be a police officer with instructions to escort him to
another facility, according to police who say she walked into the jail, not
wearing a uniform, but rather wearing jeans and a shirt.
Bonehead award three, a "marketing as good as it gets," bonehead
award goes to the Arm & Hammer company for putting "Safe to use

it gets," bonehead award goes to UK Customs officials who seized a suspected
smuggler's passport after confiscating his 300,000 cigarettes, 595 pounds
of rolling tobacco, half a kilo of cannabis and a stun gun and
who immediately gave him a replacement passport when he called them
by phone and said he lost it.

that she had stopped. She saw no other cars & continued. 4 hours later,

she was wrong, after all she DID stop.

FROM THE "LOOK WHAT I HAVE TO PUT UP WITH" FILES
years ago I had a student who thought himself very resourceful. I was at my
desk in my office one morning, preparing for an exam I was giving that
afternoon. Suddenly an email came in from this student, saying he was sick
at home and wasn't going to make it for the exam, and could he write it next
week when he was feeling better? Something had my B.S. detector going off...
I turned on the email program's option of viewing the complete set of message
headers, and noticed that even though the email appeared to come from
the student's home account, the email actually originated from one of
the labs down the hall. I went to the lab, came up behind the student
and tapped him on the shoulder. When he turned around I smiled and
said he looked like he was feeling a lot better, and that I was glad
he would be able to write the exam after all. He said, "Miss, now
I *really* do feel sick!" Yeah, you should, you bonehead!

If you had bought $1000 worth of Nortel stock one year ago, it would now be
With Enron, you would have $16.50 of the original

If you had
bought $1000 worth of Budweiser (the beer, not the stock) one year ago,
drank all the beer, then turned in the cans for the 10 cent deposit in some
states, you would have $214.
Based on the above, my current
investment advice is to stick to drinking and recycle.

will work as a scrubbing agent to remove the grease and grime and the soap

Mrs. Blonde and Mrs. Brunette were chatting over coffee.
Blonde, "I've been experiencing a strange and painful side effect from
coffee. I'm fine when I drink it black, but if I use cream, or sugar, or
both, I get a stabbing pain in one eye."
Mrs. Blonde took a sip of her

Brunette, "Betty... take the spoon out of the cup."
Microsoft today announced that it will be changing
its name to "Moft" which will clear up space on users' hard disks. It is
estimated that a typical Windows XP installation contains about 7,842,597
iterations of the word "Microsoft", in copyright notices, end-user
licence agreements, 'About' screens, as well as several multi-megabyte
files containing nothing else (the so-called ego.dll series), etc. So,
after the change, a user will have about 34 MBytes more disk space.
Stock prices of hard-disk manufacturers dipped slightly after
"Well, the programs will take up less space on the
user's disk," said Bill Gates, CEO of Moft. "But we have never cared about
that. The change will allow us to ship Windows XP more cheaply, thus
saving about $50 million a year in media costs. We are also looking
at shortening the names of some of our software products; for
instance 'The Microsoft Exchange' may be changed to 'The Moft Pit'.
Gates added that the junior programmer who discovered the
potential savings has been rewarded with a free copy of 'Moft Off for Moft
Morris a devout cowboy lost his favorite Bible while he was mending fences on

Three weeks later a cow walked up to him
carrying the Bible in its mouth. The Jewish cowboy couldn't believe his eyes.

Today's thought is: 020722 The example of good men is visible philosophy.
Just as we do not live in a vacuum, untouched by
others and touching no one, so too, our efforts to maintain positive
self-esteem are not isolated or self-contained. No matter how common and
ordinary we think we are, we influence others. In ways we never notice or
intend, everything we do reaches out and touches someone. And as with all
human contact, the effect can be positive or negative.
Just think of
all the people who see us or hear us in the course of a day. As we try to
think well of ourselves and act that way, as we commit to the behaviors that
evaluate our self-esteem, we are constantly having an impact on the people
around us. Who knows the battles going on within the walled-up hearts of a
brother or sister next to us? Who knows what really lurks behind the happy
facades our fellow human beings are willing to show us? Perhaps a world of
A smile, a word of encouragement, or a compliment may well be the
spillover of our own efforts to help ourselves. Transformed, any good we
do ourselves may become the golden key that opens a long-rusted door in
someone else's heart. We are more powerful people than we realize we are.
What we do or fail to do is important to other people as well as

'BIOGRAPHY' AIRS SPECIAL NO. 1,000 There was a time when the popular
"Biography" series was a weekly feature on the A&E Cable Network. Then
enough shows were produced to air them on a daily basis. Finally,
the folks at A&E spun off the concept, forming a full-fledged network
devoted solely to presenting life stories. The network has now passed a
milestone. This week it presented its 1,000th biography. It featured the life
and times of rock music promoter Bill Graham. According to the A&E
Web site, Graham was the driving force behind the Fillmore club in San
Francisco and helped launch the careers of many groups, most notably the
Jefferson Airplane. Others, including the Grateful Dead, Carlos Santana, Otis
Redding and Janis Joplin, got their first exposure under Graham's
tutelage. The landmark documentary was a two-hour affair, much in the
spirit of the network's 10th anniversary special, a two-hour look at the
life of Judy Garland, some years ago.
MORE RED INK AT DELTA AIR LINES There was a time when many passengers on
Delta Air Lines thought of the flying experience as being "first class at
a coach price." But in recent years services have had to be curtailed,
meals eliminated and perks lessened as the carrier suddenly fell farther and
farther into debt ... then Sept. 11! Now comes word from the Atlanta-based
carrier that its net losses for the second quarter of this year are more
than $185 million. And, according to the Atlanta Journal and Constitution,
analysts don't look for quick improvements. Delta is a major player in the
airline industry, operating both domestically -- out of hubs in Atlanta,
Cincinnati, Dallas-Ft. Worth and Salt Lake City -- and inter-lining with a
variety of international carriers. It also provides quality air service out
of many smaller cities in this country via its Delta Connection services,
mainly on Comair and Atlantic Southeast.
