I think this guy should have been promoted, not fired. This is a true story from the WordPerfect Helpline 
which was transcribed from a recording monitoring the customer care department. Needless to say, the 
Help Desk employee was fired however, he is currently suing the WordPerfect organization for "Termination 
without Cause." This is the actual dialogue of a former WordPerfect Customer Support employee (now I know 
why they record these conversations)

"Rich Hall, computer assistance; may I help you?"
"Yes, well, I'm having trouble with WordPerfect."
"What sort of trouble?"
"Well, I was just typing along, and all of a sudden the words went away."
"Went away?"
"They disappeared."
"Hmmm. So what does your screen look like now?"
"It's a blank; it won' t accept anything when I type."
"Are you still in WordPerfect, or did you get out?"
"How do I tell?"
"Can you see the C: prompt on the screen?"
"What's a sea-prompt?"
"Never mind, can you move your cursor around the screen?"
"There isn't any cursor: I told you, it won't accept anything I type."
"Does your monitor have a power indicator?"
"What's a monitor?"
"It's the thing with the screen on it that looks like a TV. Does it have a little light that tells you 
when it's on?"
"I don't know."
"Well, then look on the back of the monitor and find where the power cord goes into it. Can you see that?"
"Yes, I think so."
"Great. Follow the cord to the plug, and tell me if it's plugged into the wall."
"Yes, it is."
"When you were behind the monitor, did you notice that there were two cables plugged into the back of it, 
not just one?"
"Well, there are. I need you to look back there again and find the other cable."
"Okay, here it is."
"Follow it for me, and tell me if it's plugged securely into the back of your computer."
"I can't reach."
"Uh huh. Well, can you see if it is?"
"Even if you maybe put your knee on something and lean way over?"
"Oh, it's not because I don't have the right angle, it's because it's dark."
"Yes - the office light is off, and the only light I have is coming in from the window."
"Well, turn on the office light then."
"I can't."
"No? Why not?"
"Because there's a power failure."
"A power.......a power failure?.... Aha, Okay, we've got it licked now. Do you still have the boxes 
and manuals and packing stuff your computer came in?"
"Well, yes, I keep them in the closet."
"Good. Go get them, and unplug your system and pack it up just like it was when you got it. Then take 
it back to the store you bought it from."
"Really? Is it that bad?"
"Yes, I'm afraid it is."
"Well, all right then, I suppose. What do I tell them?"
"Tell them you're too fucking stupid to own a computer."

   Computers gender

The French teacher was explaining to a mixed high-school class that in French all words have a gender:" 
The house, as an example, is feminin: la maison. The pencil, instead, is masculin: le crayon".

One of the students rose his hand and asked: "What about the computer?". The teacher was quite perplexed 
and had to admit that there was not a gender for that word, which was not even mentioned on the French dictionary.

So it was decided for all the boys to team together (and so the girls) and start a quest to decide the computer's gender, 
giving at least four good reasons.

The boys arrived to the conclusion that the appliance had to be feminin, because:

1) Besides her creator, nobody can understand her internal logic.
2) Nobody can understand her native language, that she uses to communicate with other computers.
3) Even the smallest mistakes are permanently saved in her memory, that will throw them back at the user as soon as feasible.
4) Immediately after you have bought one, you find that you have to spend at least a half of your wage on various "absolutely necessary" accessories.

The girls, of course decided that the computer was of masculin gender, because:

1) If you need to use him, you have at first to turn him on.
2) In spite of retaining an enormous amount of data, he can not think by himself.
3) Has been invented to solve problems, but in most cases HE IS the problem.
4) Immediately after you have bought him, you realize that, if you waited JUST A SECOND LONGER, you would have found a better one for a lesser price.

The problem remained unsolved......

<^head^> A nine year old boy asks his mother, "Is God male or female?"
<^head^> After thinking for a moment, his mother responds, "Well God is both male and female."
<^head^> This confuses the boy, so he asks, "Is God black or white?"
<^head^> "Well," she says, "God is both black and white."
<^head^> This really confuses the boy, so he asks, "Is God gay or straight?"
<^head^> Feeling a bit out of her depth, but wanting to be consistent, the mother answers, 
         "Honey, God is both gay and straight."
<^head^> At this the boy's face lights up with understanding and he triumphantly asks...

A woman was having a daytime affair while her husband was at work. 
One wet and lusty day she was in bed with her boyfriend when, to her horror,
she heard her husband's car pull into the driveway.

"Oh my God - Hurry! Grab your clothes and jump out the window. My husband's home early!"
"I can't jump out the window - It's raining out there!"
"If my husband catches us in here, he'll kill us both!" she replied.
"He's got a hot temper and a gun, so the rain is the least of your problems!"

So the boyfriend scoots out of bed, grabs his clothes and jumps out the window.

As he ran down the street in the pouring rain, he quickly discovered he had run right
into the middle of the town's annual marathon, so he started running along beside the 
others, about 300 of them.

Being naked, with his clothes tucked under his arm, he tried to blend in as best he could. 
After a little while a small group of runners who had been watching him with some curiosity, 
jogged closer.

"Do you always run in the nude?" one asked.
"Oh yes!" he replied, gasping in the air. "It feels so wonderfully  free!"

Another runner moved alongside. 
"Do you always run carrying your clothes with you under your arm?"

"Oh yes" our friend answered breathlessly. "That way I can get dressed right at the end of 
the run and get in my car to go home!"

Then a third runner cast his eyes a little lower and queried, " Do you always wear a condom 
when you run?"

"Nope ... just when it's raining."

   A lesson in life...

I was happy. My girlfriend and me were dating for over a year, and so we decided to get married. 
My parents helped us in every way, my friends encouraged me, and my girlfriend? She was a dream!

There was only one thing bothering me, quite much indeed, and that was my mother-in-law to be. 
She was a career woman, smart, but most of all beautiful and sexy, who sometimes flirted me, 
quite obviously too, and made me feel uncomfortable.

One day, she called me and asked me to come over, to check the invitations. So I went. 
She was alone, and when I arrived, she whispered to me, that soon I was to be married, 
and she had feelings and desires for me that she can't overcome. So before I get married 
and commit my life to her daughter, she wants to make love to me just once..

What could I say? I was in total shock, and couldn't say a word. 
So, she said, I'll go to the bedroom, and if you are up for it, just come and get me. 
I just watched her delicious behind as she went up the stairs.

I stood there for a moment, and then turned around and went to the front door... 

I opened it, and stepped out of the house. Her husband was standing outside, 
and with tears in his eyes, hugged me and said, we are very happy and pleased, 
you have passed our little test. We couldn't have asked for a better man for our daughter. 
Welcome to the family.

There were 3 good arguments that Jesus was Black:

1. He called everyone "brother".
2. He liked Gospel music.
3. He couldn't get a fair trial.

But, then there were 3 equally good arguments that Jesus was Jewish:

1. He went into His Father's business.
2. He lived at home until he was 33.
3. He was sure his Mother was a virgin and his mother was sure He was God.

But, then there were 3 equally good arguments that Jesus was Italian:

1. He talked with his hands.
2. He had wine with every meal.
3. He used olive oil.

But, then there were 3 equally arguments that Jesus was a Californian:

1. He never cut his hair.
2. He walked around barefoot all the time.
3. He started a new religion.

But, then there were 3 equally good arguments that Jesus was Irish:

1. He never got married.
2. He was always telling stories.
3. He loved green pastures.

But, the most compelling evidence of all - 3 proofs that Jesus was a woman:

1. He fed a crowd at a moment's notice when there was no food. 
2. He kept trying to get a message across to a bunch of men who just didn't get it.
3. And, even when he was dead, He had to get up because there was more work to do.


A new young monk arrives at the monastery. He is assigned to help the other monks in 
copying the old canons and laws of the church by hand. He notices, however, that all 
of the monks are copying from copies, not from the original manuscript.

So, the new monk goes to the abbot to question this, pointing out that if someone made 
even a small error in the first copy, it would never be picked up. In fact, that error 
would be continued in all of the subsequent copies. The Abbot says, "We have been 
copying from the copies for centuries, but you make a good point, my son".

So, he goes down into the dark caves underneath the monastery where the original 
manuscript is held in a locked vault that hasn't been opened for hundreds of years. 
Hours go by and nobody sees the old abbot. Eventually the young monk gets worried and 
goes downstairs to look for him. He sees him banging his head against the wall. 
His forehead is all bloody and bruised and he is crying uncontrollably.

The young monk asks the old abbot, "What's wrong, father?" In
a choking voice, the old abbot replies, "The word is celebrate, not celibate!"

Dubya is having brekky with her majesty. He says "As I'm the President of the US of A, 
I'm thinking of changing how my great country is referred to, and I'm thinking that 
it should be a Kingdom."
"I'm sorry Mr Bush' says the queen, 'but to be a Kingdom, you have to have a King in 
charge - and you are not a King."
"How about a Principality then?" he asks, after a while.
"Again, to be a Principality you have to be a Prince - and you're not a Prince, Mr Bush."
He thinks long and hard. "How 'bout an Empire then?"

The Queen is getting a little impatient. 'Sorry again, Mr Bush, but to be an Empire you 
must have an Emperor in charge - and you are not an Emperor.
"It seems to me perfectly appropriate that you remain a country."

    Cold winter...

It was autumn, and the Indians on the remote reservation  asked their
new Chief if the winter was going to be cold  or mild.  Since he was
an Indian Chief in a modern  society, he had never been taught the old
secrets.  When  he looked at the sky, he couldn't't tell what the
weather  was going to be. Nevertheless, to be on the safe side, he
replied to his tribe that the winter was indeed going to
be cold and that the members of the village should collect
firewood to be prepared.

Also, being a practical leader, after several days he got
an idea.  He went to the phone booth, called the National  Weather
Service and asked, "Is the coming winter going to  be cold?"

"It looks like this winter is going to be quite cold  indeed," the
meteorologist at the weather service  responded.  So the Chief went
back to his people and told  them to collect even more wood in order
to be prepared.

A week later, he called the National Weather Service
again.  "Is it going to be a very cold winter?"

"Yes," the man at National Weather Service again replied,  "it's
definitely going to be a very cold winter." The  Chief again went back
to his people and ordered them to  collect every scrap of wood they
could find.

Two weeks later, he called the National Weather Service  again.  "Are
you absolutely sure that the winter is going  to be very cold?"

"Absolutely," the man replied.  "It's going to be one of
the coldest winters ever."

"How can you be so sure?" the Chief asked.

The weatherman replied, "The Indians are collecting wood  like

Helvetti jäätyy jo paljon korkeammissa lämpötiloissa:

Taivaan lämpötila voidaan laskea melko täsmällisesti saatavilla olevista
tiedoista. Lähteemme on Jesaja 30:26 "Ja kuun valo on oleva kuin auringon
valo, ja auringon valo on oleva seitsenkertainen, oleva niinkuin seitsemän
päivän valo, [...]". Niinpä Taivas saa kuusta yhtä paljon säteilyä, kuin
maa auringosta ja lisäksi auringon säteilyn seitsenkertaisena. Kuusta
maahan tuleva valo on noin 1/10000 auringosta maahan tulevasta valosta,
joten se voitaneen jättää huomiotta. Soveltamalla Stefan-Boltzmanin lakia
(I=dT^4) saamme Taivaan lämpötilaksi 493C.

Helvetin lämpötilan tarkka määritys ei onnistu annetuilla lähtötiedoilla,
mutta arvio voidaan esittää. Johanneksen ilmestys 21:8 "[...] kaikkien
valhettelijain osa on oleva siinä järvessä, joka tulta ja tulikiveä palaa.
[...]". Tulikiven, eli rikin, sulamispiste on 113C ja kiehumispiste 445C.
Helvetin lämpötilan on siis oltava välillä 113C - 445C, muutoin järvessä
oleva oleva tulikivi joko jähmettyy tai höyrystyy jolloin järvi ei
ole järvi, vaan tasanko tai pilvi.

Lopputulokseksi saamme, että Taivaassa on 48C - 380C kuumempaa
kuin Helvetissä.

    Male or female...?

  ZIPLOC BAGS - male, because they hold everything in, but you can always
  see right through them.

  SWISS ARMY KNIFE - male, because even though it appears useful for a
  wide variety of work, it spends most of its time just opening bottles.

  KIDNEYS - female, because they always go to the bathroom in pairs.

  SHOE - male, because it is usually unpolished, with its tongue hanging

  COPIER - female, because once turned off, it takes a while to warm up.
  Because it is an effective reproductive device when the right buttons
  are pushed. Because it can wreak havoc when the wrong buttons are pushed.

  TIRE - male, because it goes bald and often is over inflated.

  HOT AIR BALLOON: male, because to get it to go anywhere you have
  to light a fire under it ... and, of course, there's the hot air part.

  SPONGES - female, because they are soft and squeezable and retain water.

  WEB PAGE - female, because it is always getting hit on.

  SUBWAY - male, because it uses the same old lines to pick people up.

  HOURGLASS - female, because over time, the weight shifts to the bottom.

  HAMMER - male, because it hasn't evolved much over the last 5,000 years,
  but it's handy to have around.

  REMOTE CONTROL - female... Ha! You thought I'd say male. But
  consider, it gives man pleasure, he'd be lost without it, and while he
  doesn't always know the right buttons to push, he keeps trying.

A woman rushes home, bursting through the front door of her house yelling to her husband:

"Pack your bags honey, I just won the lottery! All $5 million of it... Woooohoooo!"

"That's great, Darling!", he replies, "Do I pack for the beach or for the mountains?"

"Who cares," she replies, "Just F%#&k off!"


William Shakespeare and Henry Longfellow went up to the gates of heaven at the same time.

St.Peter said:
	-	I´m awfully sorry, boys, but our centrum of culture is full.
		One of you must go back to the earth for one more year.
		Who will it be?
		Or maybe we´d better have a contest. The one of you who recites the most

	-	I was gazing over the abandoned land, and all I saw was a sea of sand.
		A caravan was passing through - destination - Timbuktu.

	-	Tim and I o´hunting went.

       The Geography of a Woman

Between the ages of 18 - 21 a woman is like Africa or Australia. She is half
discovered, half wild and naturally beautiful with bushland around the fertile

Between the ages of 21 - 30 a woman is like America or Japan. Completely
discovered, very well developed and open to trade especially with countries
with cash or cars.

Between the ages of 30 - 35, she is like India or Spain. Very hot, relaxed and
convinced of its own beauty.

Between the ages of 35 - 40 a woman is like France or Argentina. She may have
been half destroyed during the war but can still be a warm and desirable place
to visit.

Between the ages of 40 - 50 she is like Yugoslavia or Iraq. She lost the war
and is haunted by past mistakes. Massive reconstruction is now necessary.

Between the ages of 50 - 60 she is like Russia or Canada. Very wide, quiet and
the borders are practically unpatrolled but the frigid climate keeps people

Between the ages of 60 - 70 a woman is like England or Mongolia. With a
glorious and all conquering past but alas no future.

After 70, they become Albania or Afghanistan. Everyone knows where it is, but
no one wants to go there.

The Geography of a Man:

Between the ages of 15 - 70 a man is like Zimbabwe - ruled by a dick.


He was in an odd mood Saturday night. We planned to meet at a pub for a drink.
I spent the afternoon shopping with the girls and I thought it might have been
my fault because I was a bit later than I promised, but he didn't say anything
much about it.
The conversation was very slow going so I thought we should go off
somewhere more intimate so we could talk a bit more privately.

We went to this restaurant and he was STILL acting a bit funny. I
tried to cheer him up and started to wonder whether it was me or
something else. I asked him, and he said no. But I wasn't really sure.

So anyway, in the car on the way back home, I said that I loved him
deeply and he just put his arm around me. I didn't know what the hell
that meant because you know he didn't say it back or anything, this is
really worrying me.

We finally got back home and I was wondering if he was going to leave me!
So I tried to get him to talk but he just switched on the TV, and sat with
a distant look in his eyes that seemed to say it's all over between us.

Reluctantly, I said I was going to go to bed. Then after about 10 minutes,
he joined me and to my surprise, he responded to my advances and we made love.
But, he still seemed really distracted, so afterwards I just wanted to confront
him but I just cried myself to sleep. I just don't know what to do anymore.
I mean, I really think he's seeing someone else and that my life is a disaster.


England lost. Got a shag though.

It was George´s last day on the job as a postman after 35 years of
delivering the mail through
all kinds of weather to the same neighborhood.

When he arrived at the first house on his route George was greeted by the
whole family there, who
roundly and soundly congratulated him and sent him on his way with a tidy
gift envelope with a
hundred dollar bill.

At the second house the owners presented him with a box of fine Cuban

The folks at the third house, knowing he was an avid fisherman, handed him
selection of terrific fishing lures.

At the fourth house George was met at the door by a strikingly beautiful
woman in a revealing negligee.
She took him by the hand, beckoning him in, closing the door behind them,
leading him up the stairs to
the bedroom where she blew his mind with the most passionate love he had
ever experienced.

When he had enough, they went downstairs, where she then fixed him a giant
breakfast: eggs,
potatoes, ham, sausage, blueberry waffles, and fresh-squeezed orange juice.
When he was
truly satisfied she poured him a cup of steaming coffee.

As she was pouring, he noticed a dollar bill sticking out from under the
cup´s bottom edge. "
All this was just too wonderful for words," he said, "but what´s the dollar

"Well," she said, "last night, I told my husband that today would be your
last day, and that
we should do something special for you. I asked him what to give you.
He said, ´Fuck him. Give him a dollar.´ -- The breakfast was my idea."

    Heaven is crowded

It was getting a little crowded in Heaven, so GOD decided to
change the admittance policy.

The new law was that, in order to get into Heaven, you had to
have a really bad day the day you died. The policy would go into
effect at noon the following day. So the next day at 12:01
the first person came to the gates of Heaven.

The angel at the gate, remembering about the new law,
promptly asked the man, "Before I can let you in, I need you to
tell me about the day you died.

"No problem.", said the man. "Well, for some time now, I've
thought my wife was having an affair. I believed that each day
on her lunch hour, she'd bring her lover home to our 25th floor
apartment and have sex with him. So today I was going to come
come and catch them. Well, I got there
and busted in and immediately began searching for this guy.

My wife was half naked and yelling at me as I searched the entire
apartment. But, damn it, I couldn't find him! Just as I was about
to give up, I happened to glance out onto the balcony and noticed
that there was a man hanging off the edge by his fingertips!
The nerve of that guy to think he could hide
from me! Well I ran out there and promptly stomped on his
fingers until he fell to the ground. But, wouldn't you know it,
he landed in some bushes that broke his fall, and he didn't die.

This pissed me off even more so in a rage I went back inside
to get th e first thing I could get my hands on to throw at
him. And oddly enough, the first thing I could grab was the refrigerator.
I unplugged it, pushed it out onto the balcony and heaved it over
the side. It plummeted 25 stories and crushed him!

The excitement of the moment was so great that right after
that I had a heart attack and died almost instantly."

The angel sat back and thought for a moment. Technically,
the guy did have a bad day, and it WAS a crime of passion,
so he announced, "OK, sir Welcome to the Kingdom of Heaven.",
and let him in.

A few seconds later the next guy came up. "OK. Here's
therule. Before I can let you in, I need to hear about the day you
died." "Sure thing.", the man replied. "But you're not gonna believe
this. I was out on the balcony of my 26th floor apartment
doing my daily exercises when I got a little carried away and
accidentally fell over the side! Luckily however, I was able
to catch myself by my fingertips on the balcony directly beneath mine.
When all of a sudden this crazy man comes running out of his apartment
and starts cussing and stomping on my fingers! Well of course I fell. I
hit some trees and bushes on the way down which broke my fall so
didn't die right away. As I'm laying there face up on the ground,
unable to move and in excruciating pain, I see the man push his
refrigerator, of all things, over the ledge
and it falls directly on top of me and kills me!"

The angel is quietly laughing to himself as the man finishes
his story.

"I could get used to this new policy.", he thinks to
himself. "Very well.", the angel announces. "Welcome to the
Kingdom of Heaven", and he lets the man enter.

A few seconds later the third man in line comes up to the

"Tell about the day you died.", said the angel.

"OK. Picture this.", says the man. "I'm naked inside a


A cruise in the Pacific goes all wrong, the ship sinks, and
there were only 3 survivors: Damian, Darren and Deirdre..........

They manage to swim to a small island.......and they lived
there for a couple of years............ doing what's natural for men and
women to do....

After several years of casual sex, all the time, Deirdre felt absolutely
horrible about what she had been doing...................

She felt having sex with both Damian and Darren was so bad
that she killed herself...............

It was very tragic but Damian and Darren managed to get
through it and, after a while.................. nature once more took its
inevitable course..............

Well, a couple more years went by and Damian and Darren began
to feel absolutely horrible about what they where doing.....................


They buried her.


It was opening night at the Orpheum and The Amazing Claude was topping the
bill. People came from miles around to see the famed hypnotist do his stuff.

As Claude took to the stage, he announced, "Unlike most stage hypnotists
who invite two or three people up onto the stage to be put into a
trance, I intend to hypnotize each and every member of this audience."

The excitement was almost electric as Claude withdrew a beautiful antique
pocket watch from his coat.

I want you each to keep your eye on this antique watch. It's a very
special watch. Its been in my family for six generations. He began to
swing the watch gently back and forth while quietly chanting, "Watch the
watch, watch the watch, watch the watch...."

The crowd became mesmerized as the watch swayed back and forth, light
gleaming off its polished surface.  Hundreds of pairs of eyes followed
the swaying watch until suddenly it slipped from the hypnotist's fingers
and fell to the floor, breaking into a hundred pieces.

"Shit!" said the hypnotist.
It took three weeks to clean up the theatre.


There is a Space Shuttle mission to the moon with 2 monkeys and a woman on board.

The control centre in the US calls:
"Monkey number 1, Monkey number 1 to the television screen." He sits down
and he is told to release the pressure in compartment 1, increase the
temperature in engine 4 and to release oxygen to the reactors. So the
monkey does the pressure, temperature, and releases the oxygen.

A few moments later the control centre calls again: "Monkey number 2,
monkey number 2 to the television screen." He sits down and he is told to
add Carbon Dioxide to room 4, to stop the fuel injection to engine 3, to
add nitrogen to the fuel compartment and to analyse the solar radiation.
So the monkey does the carbon dioxide, the fuel injection, the nitrogen
and the analysis of solar radiation.
A little later on, headquarters calls again: "Woman, please woman approach
the screen." She sits down and just as she is about to be told what to do
she says.....  "I know I know!! Feed the monkeys, don't touch anything."


A man had great tickets for the World cup final. As he sits down, another
man comes down and asks if anyone is sitting in the seat next to him.
"No," he says. "The seat is empty."
"This is incredible!" said the man. "Who in their right mind would have a
seat like this for the World cup final, the biggest sporting event, and not
use it?"
He says, "Well, actually, the seat belongs to me. My wife was supposed to
come with me, but she passed away. This is the first World Cup Final we
haven't been to together since we got married."
"Oh ... I'm sorry to hear that. That's terrible. But couldn't you find
someone else - a friend or relative, or even a neighbour to take the seat?"
The man sadly shakes his head "No. They're all at the funeral."

Rich, Urban, Biker" They turn to the woman and ask her, "What are you?" She replies: "I'm a WIFE, you know.... Wash, Iron, Fuck, Etcetera" Then, they suddenly look at me and immediately I said... I'm a BITCH....!! What does a Bitch mean? BABE IN TOTAL CONTROL of HERSELF So ladies, next time somebody calls you a Bitch........... SMILE...........And say Thank You!!!!!!!!

Airport joke A guy sitting at an airport bar in Atlanta noticed a beautiful woman sitting next to him. He thought to himself, "Wow, she's so gorgeous she must be a flight attendant. But which airline does she work for?" Hoping to pick her up, he leaned towards her and uttered the Delta slogan: "Love to fly and it shows?" She gave him a blank, confused stare and he immediately thought to himself, "ooh shit, she doesn't work for Delta". A moment later, another slogan popped into his head. He leaned towards her again, "Something special in the air?" She gave him the same confused look. He mentally kicked himself, and scratched American Airlines off the list. Next he tried the United slogan: "I would really love to fly your friendly skies?" This time the woman turned on him "What the fuck do you want?" The man smiled, then slumped back in his chair, and said... "Ahhh, Finnair"

Question: "WHAT COMPANY IS THIS?" Can you imagine working for a company that has a little more than 500 employees and has the following statistics: 29 have been accused of spousal abuse 7 have been arrested for fraud 19 have been accused of writing bad checks 117 have directly or indirectly bankrupted at least 2 businesses 3 have done time for assault 71 cannot get a credit card due to bad credit 14 have been arrested on drug-related charges 8 have been arrested for shoplifting 21 are currently defendants in lawsuits 84 have been arrested for drunk driving in the last year Can you guess which organization this is? Give up yet? It's the 535 members of the United States Congress. ...The same group of Idiots that crank out hundreds of new laws each year designed to keep *the rest of us* "in-line". You gotta pass this one on! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Friends, That makes 373 offesnses out of 535 members (providing there are no double offenders), which is a whopping 70% of Congress! I try not to send out things like this without researching into it further (Hey--I don't want to be called in for defamation of character, or worse, accomplice to anti-Americanism & terrorism!), so I sluethed around the Net. Check out the sites below, and if you find anything that points you in another direction, please let me know where those statistics can be found. *Stay informed.* ~MH
