Windy Austrian fined An Austrian man has been fined ÂŁ45 for breaking wind while he was being questioned by police officers. Police in Graz said the laughter of passers-by humiliated them, giving them grounds to book Hansi Sporer, 20, under local anti police abuse laws. "This was no accident. He clearly intended to make a laughing stock out of the officers and deserved what he got," said one police source. The Safety and Security Act allows police to issue instant fines to people who insult or attack them. Half of Brits injured by biscuits More than half of all Britons have been injured by biscuits, according to a new survey.

Injuries range from being scalded by hot tea or coffee while dunking to breaking a tooth while eating biscuits. An estimated 25 million adults have been injured while eating during a tea or coffee break - with at least 500 landing themselves in hospital. The custard cream was found to be the worse offender and Jaffa cakes were the safest biscuit of all! Research Company Mindlab International were commissioned to conduct the research. It found almost a third of adults said they had been splashed or scalded by hot drinks while dunking or trying to fish the remnants of a collapsed digestive. It also revealed 28 per cent had choked on crumbs while one in 10 had broken a tooth or filling biting a biscuit. More unusually, three per cent had poked themselves in the eye with a biscuit and seven per cent bitten by a pet or "other wild animal" trying to get their biscuit. Film fan makes a name for himself A movie mad Norwegian bus driver has changed his name to Julius Andreas Gimli Arn MacGyver Chewbacca Highlander Elessar-Jankov. The man, formerly know as just Andreas Jankov, says it was the best way he could think of to pay tribute to his favourite movies, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, and also the television series MacGyver. Jankov said: "I wanted to make a name for myself - literally. "So I sat down and drew up a list of all my favourite film and TV characters and decided I would name myself after them.

It feels like only yesterday when I first met Pete. Like many starting new projects, he had lots of ideas and was racing against the clock for the big launch! As he explained his plans and announced his opening date (a week away), I had to admit, I didn’t envy him! With no floor, no bar, no drinks, no kitchen and of course no snooker / pool tables, you could almost hear the theme music of the A-Team in the background. But like Hannibal, Pete was as cool as ever and sure enough, a week on, El Taco was born! It didn’t take long for it to become a favourite amongst the locals and as you got to know the Taco team, it’s no wonder why. Tacos has always offered a great atmosphere, proven by the mix of nationalities who regularly visit (especially during happy hour). Offering pool, snooker, darts & carambola

seven days a week and regularly holding live entertainment, there is never a dull moment.

Every Friday is Reg’s Karaoke night and from October Sunday Lunches will be now available. So don’t forget, Saturday the 10th October El Tacos is celebrating there 2nd Birthday including live entertainment from 8pm.


A KIND OF MAGIC - WARMWAVE ECO HEATING PANELS We all know how cold it gets in the winter months in Spain, well now we have a new eco friendly product that only costs a few cents per hour to run, the equivalent of three light bulbs per hour. Colourful and elegant designs to warm and enrich your home. Warmwave Eco Heating panels can go anywhere in the home or commercial premises, even bar and restaurant terraces. You can put them on the walls, the ceiling or have them free standing. Guaranteed to provide a healthy and comfortable heat by distributing long warm waves everywhere in the room. Cold spots and cold feet belong to the past. Everywhere in the room you feel the same temperature. The integrated damp control system eliminates dampness and mould forever. Warmwave is ideal for anyone suffering from allergies and breathing problems because no bacteria or pollen is distributed or blown into the room due to there being no air movement. As Warmwave heating works totally different to conventional heating systems, the amount of power output can be far less yet maintain a warm comfortable environment, and less power output means less power input, which is not only friendly on the pocket but also on the environment. In hospital baby care units, incubators are often equipped with Warmwave systems to keep newborn babies warm. Health professionals have used Warmwave heat lamps for decades to treat muscle and joint problems. Unlike convection heated areas, where warm air is lost when doors are opened, Warmwaved areas retain heat. Used and appreciated throughout Europe for many years, the Warmwave heaters are now available in Spain! Energy efficient heating made beautiful! You'll be amazed at the savings.

The famous engineer was invited as a guest of honor to the opening of that factory. He was traveling alone.

However, all I have to say on the matter is he only had one testical!


FIVE DANCE VENUES COSTA DEL SOL

ON

THE

LetsDanceRoc, the dance club that teaches ‘Modern Jive’ here on the coast, now teaches 150 people every week to look good on the dance floor. ‘Modern Jive’, also known by the brand name CEROC or the French word LeROC, is the dance phenomenon that has gone global in just 10 years, the UK alone now has over 400 ‘Modern Jive’ venues. LetsDanceRoc, our own Costa del Sol ‘Modern Jive’ dance club, has already grown to five venues and has 25 experienced instructors known as CREW. Every night of the week, for three hours, the CREW teach people from all nationalities and ages ranging from 17–70 to look good on the dance floor. With the ‘Party Season’, which means Christmas and New Year’s parties, fast approaching; our venues, which stretch from Torrox Costa to the east and

Confirmation of LetsDanceRoc ’s success here on the coast. Duquesa to the west, are teaching more people every week. Modern Jive is a fusion of Jiving and Salsa. Its worldwide popularity is because it is easy to learn and just four moves, which can be taught in one evening, look good when ‘looped’ into a dance routine and the fact that the same moves can be danced to slow romantic music as well as to good old fashion ‘Rock and Roll’. The key to the club’s popularity is not just its success at teaching absolute, ‘two left footed’


beginners to look dead cool on any dance floor, but its ability to make every dance evening three hours of ‘real fun’. From the moment they walk through the door new members are immediately looked after by a CREW member. LetsDanceRoc evenings are extremely sociable. Half the members turn up with partners and half come on their own knowing that, because of the way the teaching is organized, they will dance with most people during the evening and soon know everyone there. The club is very proud of the amount of friendships and romances that have resulted from their dance classes and the number of people on the coast that now look good on the dance floor – confirmed by the new signs. There are three reasons why people dance with LetsDanceRoc every week: · When the music starts at a party, our members can take to the floor and look impressive. No more Dad Dancing! (Standing on the spot wiggling your butt as if you have a wasp in your trousers).

· A LetsDanceRoc evening is great exercise, expanding your lungs and pumping your heart. For three hours most dancers think of nothing else but dancing and any worries or problems just disappear – dance evenings are a great way to de-stress. · Dance evenings are serious fun and a very natural way to meet people and make new friends.

Two guys were discussing popular family trends on sex, marriage, and values. Stu said, "I didn't sleep with my wife before we got married, Did you?" "Leroy replied, "I'm not sure, what was her maiden name?" A little boy went up to his father and asked: "Dad, where did my intelligence come from?" The father replied. "Well son, you must have got it from your mother, 'cause I still have mine." "Mr. Clark, I have reviewed this case very carefully," the divorce Court Judge said, "And I've decided to give your wife $775 a week," "That's very fair, your honor," the husband said. " And every now and then I'll try to send her a few bucks myself."

A doctor examining a woman who had been rushed to the Emergency Room, took the husband aside, and said, "I don't like the looks of your wife at all." "Me neither doc," said the husband. "But she's a great cook, and really good with the kids". An old man goes to the Wizard to ask him if he can remove a curse he has been living with for 40 years. The Wizard says, "Maybe, but you will have to tell me the exact words that were used to put the curse on you". The old man says without hesitation, "I now pronounce you man and wife." A blonde calls Delta Airlines and asks, "Can you tell me how long it'll take to fly from San Francisco to New York City ?" The agent replies, "Just a minute .." "Thank you," the blonde says, and hangs up. Moe: "My wife got me to believe in religion." Joe: "Really?" "Yeah. Until I married her I didn't believe in hell."


PoolSchool The Pool Maintenance Guide .pdf Over the last 5-6 years I’ve written 156 articles relating to swimming pool care and maintenance, all of which have been printed in magazines here in Spain. Additionally, several have been posted on Pools sites on the internet - sometimes we even get asked for permission to copy them! PoolSchool, our one-on-one pool-care course, developed as our direct response to clients asking for such a service and more or less the same thing has happened again.... We offer free advice on pool-related matters and this service has proved so popular that we find half of our working day is taken up

answering the phone to pool-owners from Spain, Portugal, France, USA, UK - not to mention dozens of email questions every week! So.... We have written a comprehensive pool maintenance guide and made it available as a .pdf file that can be downloaded directly into your email inbox. Log on to the new, dedicated site at: www.swimmingpoolmaintenanceguide.com and you can download it for an introductory price of just $9.99 US (roughly €6.80 in real money). Payments are handled by Paypal so it’s really, really secure! We are in the process of filming dozens of mini-videos demonstrating the various aspects of pool maintenance described in the Guide. We will upload all these videos to YouTube and include links to them in future editions of The Pool Maintenance Guide. Now comes the best bit - everyone who buys The Pool Maintenance Guide will automatically receive future updated editions, including the linked videos, completely FREE, direct to their inbox. October - seasonal pool tasks: - If you’ve finished with the pool for this year you’d be well advised to winterise it. Winterising your pool will extend the life of your pump and filter and reduce your electricity bill. See: www.deep-blue-pools.com/downloads/Winterising.pdf for details. On the other hand, if you have a pool-cover, you’ll still be using the pool for a few weeks yet. (If you have a cover and heater you can swim all winter long!) Remember, you must remove the cover for 48 hours when you superchlorinate. Ken Walker, Deep Blue Pools, 952 499 059 www.deep-blue-pools.com www.poolschool.eu


Rising to fame with his role as the alien Mork in the TV series Mork and Mindy, Robin Williams has since revelled in his roles in films & stand up comdey. "Never pick a fight with an ugly person, they've got nothing to lose." "We had gay burglars the other night. They broke in and rearranged the furniture." "Reality is just a crutch for people who can't cope with drugs." "Do you think God gets stoned? I think so . . Look at the platypus." "God gave men a penis and a brain, but unfortunately not enough blood supply to run both at the same time." "We Americans, we're a simple people . . . but piss us off, and we'll bomb your cities." "If women ran the world we wouldn't have wars, just intense negotiations every 28 days." "Politics: “Poli” a Latin word meaning “many”; and "tics" meaning “bloodsucking creatures”." "People say satire is dead. It's not dead; it's alive and living in the White House." "My God. We've had cloning in the South for years. It's called cousins." "I like my wine like my women - ready to pass out." "Ah, yes, divorce ... from the Latin word meaning to rip out a man's genitals through his wallet." "When in doubt, go for the dick joke."


by Ann French of WeDoBling.com At the Jewellery Show in England there was a fabulous array of items for Christmas through until next Spring. Styles range from delicate and pale through to chunky and vibrant and, all other combinations inbetween. I think that this reflects the trend, in recent years, for people personalizing their jewellery and accessories and wearing clothes/jewellery that reflects their own personality. One of the trends at the moment is to be able to wear your “bling” jewellery, not just in the evening, but through the day too. This is made possible by the “antique” or “vintage” look of many of the pearls, crystals and diamantes making some of the costume jewellery look like an expensive family heirloom! Another trend is jewellery made from resin. It comes in all kinds of shapes and sizes, in bold colours, mixed with metals or cords or just on it’s own. The unusual styles will add interest and that “wow-factor” to any outfit. A further trend is the multi-stranded necklaces made from gemstone chippings, crystals, charms and beads of various sizes. Why not look to layer some single necklaces to achieve your own unique design? Take five necklaces, each a little longer than the other, with the shortest hugging your neckline and the others draped under it. Like the look? Keep experimenting until you do. Look out for some of the new designs on sale soon in Papeleria Martin or on our website. Visit our website: www.wedobling.com or see a range of our jewellery, decorative bra straps and handbag hangers at Papeleria Martin, Alhaurin el Grande. See you next month….. Ann


Did you know that women spend an average of three and a half years thinking about their weight, what they eat, dieting and healthy eating during their lifetime? (GMTV Breakfast Show 09.09.09).

So what if you could forget all the dieting, forget all the constant thinking about what to eat and how many calories are in each and every bite? Have a surgical Gastric Band fitted?

But what if you could have all the benefits of a surgical Gastric Band, without the surgery and cost? By using the Hypno-Band System, we create a state of mind where you will believe you actually have a Gastric Band fitted! You will eat smaller portions and feel full. The Hypno-Band System is a long term solution to your weight problems at a fraction of the cost of surgery!

Although Virtual Gastric Band therapy has been around for a few years now, the Hypno-Band system has been uniformly tried and tested for weight loss and is now literally sweeping across the UK with astonishing results.

These are entries to a Washington Post competition asking for a two-line rhyme with the most romantic first line, and the least romantic second line. 1. My darling, my lover, my beautiful wife, Marrying you has screwed up my life. 2. My love, you take my breath away, What have you stepped in to smell this way? 3. Kind, intelligent, loving and hot, This describes everything you are not. 4. Love may be beautiful, love may be bliss, But I only slept with you 'cause I was pissed. 5. I thought that I could love no other, That is until I met your brother. 6. My feelings for you no words can tell, Except for maybe 'Go to hell.' 7. What inspired this amorous rhyme? Two parts vodka, one part lime. 8. I see your face when I am dreaming. That's why I always wake up screaming. 9. Roses are red, violets are blue, sugar is sweet, and so Are you. But the roses are wilting, the violets are dead, the sugar bowl's empty and so is your head. 9. I want to feel your sweet embrace, But don't take that paper bag off your face. 10. I love your smile, your face, and your eyes, Damn, I'm good at telling lies! 11. Seeing you was love at first sight, But now it really is quite shite.


October brings cooler days and time to give the gardens an autumn tidy avoiding major pruning. As the temperature continues to drop, reduce the irrigation water and when the October rains have fallen consider the planting of new perennials, shrubs, fruit trees and trees. Take special care to pots and containers; complete a good tidy checking for plants which may have become root bound and possibly take out the summer annuals and re plant with pansies, kalanchoas or carnations. Another idea for pots is planting Christmas bulbs, maybe Hyacinthus in many colours, wonderfully scented and ideal for conservatories. Almost fill an 8cm pot with moist bulb fibre and then push a bulb in gently to half its depth. Put pots into a cool,

dark place for about ten weeks to allow the the roots to grow. Check bulbs regularly and water if the compost feels dry. When the shoots appear, wait until they are about 5cm high and arrange in 18cm bowls. Fill the gaps with more bulb fibre and place in a light spot to flower. Transfer last year’s cyclamens into a north facing porch and start to water and feed. Cyclamen Hederifolium (Spanish, Ciclamen Silvestre) is a beautiful hardy, small, tuberous plant growing in open woodland and rock gardens. The shiny heart shaped leaves are often marbled and mottled in silver and the flowers stand proudly above the leaves. Propagation can be from seed and the plant can be prone to black root rot. Try to avoid over watering during the winter months. Happy Gardening....

They are the largest reptile in the world! The Australian saltwater crocodile is this month’s Amazing Animal. Crocodiles are believed to be 200 million years old. Males can reach a length of up to 6 or 7 metres (2.5 to 3m for females) and weigh up to 1500kg. Australian saltwater crocodiles kill on average one to two people per year! Saltwater crocodiles are opportunists when it comes to hunting. They stalk their prey, hide under water and wait. A crocodile you can see is less dangerous than one you can't see... They are most aggressive during the breeding season. Saltwater crocodiles can swim 15 to 18 miles per hour in short bursts, but when cruising go 2 to 3 mph. It is an immensely powerful animal, having the strength to drag a fully grown water buffalo into a river, or crush a full-grown bovid's skull between its jaws. Its typical hunting technique is known as the "death roll". "Salties", as we "Aussies" call them can actually live in freshwater rivers, swamps and billabongs many hundred kilometres inland. Females lay 40 - 60 eggs in a nest which is closely guarded by the mother. The eggs take 90 days to develop. Interestingly the sex is determined by the incubation temperature. Below 30oC the hatchlings will be female, and above 32oC they will be male. Saltwater crocodiles are by far the most dangerous animals in Australia. They are huge, aggressive, territorial, and plentiful across the north of the Australian Outback.

Your energy is very high right now coupled with an enthusiasm that is infectious, so turn on the charm and other’s will rally around to help you manifest your vision. Any feelings of vulnerability will disappear by 15th and be replaced by warmth and generosity leaving you wondering why you felt that way in the first place. TAURUS - Apart from being slightly bored as the month kicks off you are generally performing well on the work front, meeting all the deadlines that have been put in front of you. Is that enough though, are you satisfied, well if not ‘do something about it’. There may be some difficulty in arranging finances and this will take a lot of your attention. If you are in a relationship you will explore new levels of sensuality and intimacy.

GEMINI - This is a great month to sort out any problems by taking up the challenge to find solutions. Someone may need your services mid month and you will be only too willing to help, enjoying immersing yourself in a project. There could be the prospect of someone new entering your life that inspires you to start planning. A holiday or break away with a loved one is just what the doctor ordered and will revitalise an existing relationship. CANCER - This is a highly demanding time and you may need to restructure your home life to meet a complex and hectic professional schedule. Any research or development will be beneficial so if you are curious about a matter then follow it through; it could end up being advantageous. Cash flow improves mid October and your circle of friends expands. There is a strong mutual attraction between you and another that could lead to an emotional closeness.

LEO - This is a light hearted and productive time for you where you feel you can move forwards and begin to accomplish a lot. If you remain adaptable and flexible it may be possible to embrace opportunities coming your way, giving you exactly what you have always longed for. Attraction is high right now and if single it is likely that you will meet someone special. Watch the pennies and the pounds will watch themselves; you may need some cash for a rainy day.


VIRGO - A calm, tranquil period is highlighted if you are in a relationship with many wonderful times to remember and cherish. Family obligations may need attending to and you will be as supportive as you can be towards loved ones, even if you feel they are partially responsible for the situation they find themselves in. You may unveil some important information towards the end of the month that propels you to focus with determination on your future goals.

LIBRA - New deals could be coming your way but all in all your workload is extremely heavy as it is. You may feel that you are putting a lot of energy into something that is not giving you enough back. There is a need to focus on your own needs and issues this month – perhaps they have fallen out of balance lately. Take the time out to visit a trusted friend, chatting and laughter will lessen the daily stress that has built up, allowing your creativity to once again flow. SCORPIO - After the hurdles of last month, this one by comparison is lighter. Pluto your ruler has moved direct thus allowing you to see your ‘fears’ in a new light. Clarity is thrown into the picture and where there was conflict and confusion now you are able to make the peace. A sense of adventure picks up with you and you are more focused on what you want to do, although you are likely to get irritable and agitated if you think that others are not taking you seriously. SAGITTARIUS - You are at the starting block and the gun has gone off, all the hurdles are out of the way and you are able to run at long last, just be sure that you set off on the right track to begin with. A proposal could come your way and it may be wise to give it some thought. By the end of October dreams start to manifest, visions become real, all that you have been hoping for starts to materialise. Someone will be impressed by your aptitude for pulling things off.

Honouring those who improve the species... by accidently removing themselves from it! The Balloon Priest (Padre Baloneiro) 20 April 2008, Atlantic Ocean, Brazil. A Catholic priest recently ascended to heaven on a host of helium party balloons, paying homage to Lawn Chair Larry's aerial adventure. Larry, the beloved survivor of a Darwin-worthy fiasco, attached 45 helium weather balloons to his lawnchair, packed a picnic lunch, and cut the tether - but instead of drifting above the Los Angeles landscape as planned, he was rocketed into LAX air traffic lanes by the lift of the weather balloons. Astoundingly, Larry survived the flight. Adelir Antonio, 51, was not so lucky. His audacious attempt to set a world record for clustered balloon flight was intended to publicize his plan to build a spiritual rest stop for truckers. But, as truckers know, sitting for 19 hours in a lawn chair is not a trivial matter even in the comfort of your own backyard. The priest took numerous safety precautions, including wearing a survival suit, selecting a buoyant chair, and packing a satellite phone and a GPS. However, the late Adelir Antonio made a fatal mistake. He did not know how to use the GPS. The winds changed, as winds do, and he was blown inexorably toward open sea. He could have parachuted to safety while over land, but chose not to. When the voyager was perilously lost at sea, he prudently phoned for help - but rescuers were unable to determine his location, since he could not use his GPS. He struggled with the unit as the charge on the satellite phone dwindled. Instead of a GPS, the priest let God be his guide, and God guided him straight to heaven. Bits of balloons began appearing on mountains and beaches. Ultimately the priest's body surfaced, confirming that he, like Elvis, had left the building.


Why do I need travel insurance? Every week, you read in the press about some type of disaster, yet we tend to believe that it will never happen to us! We hope that we will never become the victim of a crime, an accident, illness or death involving ourselves or our travelling companion, natural or man made disasters, bad weather, airline goes bust… the list is endless. The real costs when things go wrong. An emergency abroad can be extremely expensive. If you need to be returned home, it could cost you a small fortune, unless you are adequately insured. Here are a few examples of the cost of repatriation: £35 - £45,000 – Air ambulance from USA’s East coast. £12 - £16,000 Air ambulance from UK to Spain. £15 - £20,000 scheduled flight, stretcher and Doctor escort from Australia to UK or Spain. Globelink specialise in providing Travel Insurance for people living in all EU countries, Authorised and Regulated by the Financial Services Authority and Approved by EU Regulators. Globelink have been providing specialist Travel Insurance policies for many years and offer a unique combination of personal service, sensible cover and security including a 24 hour multi-lingual emergency assistance service. This enables you to relax and enjoy your holiday with the comfort of knowing that you will be looked after by experts if things go wrong. In some parts of the world, even finding a reputable doctor or hospital can be a real problem, especially if you cannot speak the language, but our assistance service will take care of everything and guarantee payment for your treatment directly with the doctor, clinic or hospital. Globelink Annual Multi Trip policies give cover for an unlimited number of trips with a choice of cover for Worldwide or Europe only. You can select from policies giving a maximum individual trip duration of 17, 31, 45, 60, 90 or 120 days. This is reduced to a maximum of 60 days for people aged 66 to 70 and 31 days for people aged 71 to 74 Policies for single trips are available for people aged up to 84 for European travel, or to 74 for Worldwide cover.


Each fact is more useless than the next...but even so, you will find them interesting, facinating or weird even. The Boeing 767 aircraft is a collection of 3.1 million parts from 800 different suppliers around the world: fuselage parts from Japan, centre wing section from Southern California, flaps from Italy. Parker Brothers prints about 50 billion dollars worth of Monopoly money in one year. In the kingdom of Bhutan, all citizens officially become a year older on New Year's Day. The term "bank teller" originated in the wake of the 1929 stock market crash, when banks began hiring low-paid workers to "tell" throngs of frantic depositors that their money was gone. Comic duo Cheech and Chong were originally known as Spic and Span before changing due to pressure from Chicano organizations. Moths are unable to fly during an earthquake. On average, there are 333 squares of toilet paper on a roll. Two-thirds of all the world's coriander comes from a single valley in Italy. SCUBA divers cannot pass gas at depths of 33 feet or below. Replying more than 100 times to the same piece of spam e-mail will overwhelm the sender's system and interfere with their ability to send any more spam.

by David Griffith of Computer Net Spyware – Why is it costing me so much money? What is it? Spyware (and other forms like Adware and Malware) are pieces of software, similar to viruses, that get onto your computer and start to cause problems. There are a lot of different types that have different purposes. Some of them send information about what you look at on the internet so that you can be targeted with Spam, hoping that you will buy something. Others make windows pop-up on your screen trying to sell you things. Others are more malicious and try to damage files on your computer and try to spread themselves to other computers using your internet connection. Some can stop your internet connection from working, or your email, or any other program that you use, even Windows itself. Is Spyware the same as a Virus? Spyware is similar to a virus in many ways but it is not actually a virus. This is one of the biggest problems because it means that your Antivirus program will not stop Spyware from entering your computer. Some Antivirus programs are now starting to implement a degree of prevention for Spyware but as yet we have not found them to be very effective. How do I get Spyware? You can get Spyware from many sources. One way is by installing file sharing programs such as Limewire, Bearshare, Emule etc. Other types of Spyware can get onto your computer simply by going to a website. You don’t see it happen and you don’t know it’s there - at least until things start to go wrong. This is why Spyware is so frustrating. You don’t see it until it causes problems.

How do I protect myself from Spyware? In reality it is very difficult to prevent your computer from getting infected by Spyware. The only guaranteed solution is to never put the computer on the Internet. These days, that is not realistic for most people. The only other solution is to clean the computer regularly by taking it to a professional company like ComputerNET, or by learning how to do it yourself and buying all the tools that you need to do it. We regularly use up to 20 different tools to clean Spyware and Viruses from any given computer. You also need the expertise to be able to run these tools effectively. Why does it cost so much to have my computer cleaned? People underestimate the time involved in carrying out this cleaning process. Taking into account the age of the computer and how infected it is, it can take a very long time (days sometimes) to clean it properly. It can therefore be expensive to have this done (at ComputerNET we charge €70 incl. IVA). Conclusion: The best thing to do is to always make sure your anti-virus software is up to date (to ensure the minimum amount of viruses get through), avoid installing programs that are likely to install Spyware (like file sharing and music downloading programs) and have your computer cleaned regularly by professionals.

Find the Man's Head within 3 seconds and you're a genius!

According to medical experiments: If you can find the Man's Head within 3 seconds, your right brain is more developed than normal people. If you can find the Man's Head within 1 minute, your right brain is developed normally. If you can find the Man's Head within 1-3 mintues, your right brain is slow in reacting, you should eat more meat protein. If you can find the Man's Head in 3 minutes or more, your right brain is a disaster... extremely slow in reacting, the only suggeestion is please watch cartoons to help normally develop your right brain.

Choo Choo A mother was working in the kitchen, listening to her five-year-old son playing with his new electric train set in the living room. She heard the train stop and her son saying, 'All of You b*****ds who want off, get off now, 'cos we're in a hurry! And all of you b*****ds who are getting on, get on now, 'cos we're going down the tracks'. The horrified mother went in and told her son, 'We don't use that kind of language in this house. Now I want you to go to your room and stay there for TWO HOURS. When you come out, you may play with your train, but I want you to use nice language.' Two hours later, the son came out of the bedroom and resumed playing with his train.

Soon the train stopped and the mother heard her son say, 'All passengers who are disembarking the train, please remember to take all of your belongings with you. We thank you for travelling with us today and hope your trip was a pleasant one.' She hears the little boy continue, 'For those of you just boarding, we ask you to stow all of your hand luggage under your seat. Remember, there is no smoking on the train. We hope you will have a pleasant and relaxing journey with us today.' As the mother began to smile, the child added.......... 'For those of you who are pissed off about the TWO HOUR delay, please see the fat controller in the kitchen.'


Gotta Pee Two women friends had gone for a girl's night out. Both were very faithful and loving wives, however they had gotten over-enthusiastic on the Bacardi Breezers. Incredibly drunk and walking home they needed to pee, so they stopped in the cemetery. One of them had nothing to wipe with so she thought she would take off her panties and use them. Her friend however was wearing a rather expensive pair of panties and did not want to ruin them. She was lucky enough to squat down next to a grave that had a wreath with a ribbon on it, so she proceeded to wipe with that. After the girls did their business they proceeded to go home. The next day one of the woman's husband was concerned that his normally sweet and innocent wife was still in bed hung over, so he phoned the other husband and said: 'These girl nights have got to stop! I'm starting to suspect the worst. My wife came

home with no panties!!' 'That's nothing' said the other husband, 'mine came back with a card stuck to her ass that Said..... From all of us at the Fire Station. We'll never forget you. Sent in by William McNamee Bruce and Jenny Little Bruce and Jenny are only 10 years old, but they just know that they are in love. One day they decide that they want to get married, so Bruce goes to Jenny's father to ask him for her hand. Bruce bravely walks up to him and says "Mr. Smith, me and Jenny are in love and I want to ask you for her hand in marriage." Thinking that this was just the cutest thing, Mr. Smith replies, "Well, Bruce, you are only 10. Where will you two live?" continued >>>


Without even taking a moment to think it, Bruce replies, "In Jenny's room. It's bigger than mine and we can both fit there nicely" Still thinking this is just adorable, Mr. Smith says with a huge grin, "Okay then how will you live? You're not old enough to get a job. You'll need to support Jenny." Again, Bruce instantly replies, "Our allowance... Jenny makes 5 bucks a week and I make 10 bucks a week. That's about 60 bucks a month and that should do us just fine." By this time Mr. Smith is a little shocked that Bruce has put so much thought into this. He thinks for a moment trying to come up with something that Bruce won't have an answer to. After a second, Mr. Smith says, "Well, Bruce, it seems like you have got everything all figured out. I just have one more question for you. "What will you do if the two of you should have little ones of your own?" Bruce just shrugs his shoulders and says, "Well, we've been lucky so far..." Workout I was in the gym yesterday when I suddenly realized I desperately needed to fart. The music was really, really loud, so I timed my farts with the beat. After a couple of songs, I started to feel better. I finished my workout and noticed that everybody was staring at me. Then I suddenly remembered that I was listening to my iPod.
