        • Conversation overheard in the hallway, between a LtCol of Public Affairs, one of the Admin Assistants and another (DFAIT) Dept Foreign Affairs officer (civilian). I dont know the content of the conversation, other than the last few sentences, whereupon I said something smartazz like:

          "That sounds like I need to get a backhoe. Its getting kinda deepin here ."

          The Col chuckled, the AA laughed.

          The DFAIT guy looked at me and said "You entered into something without having an effective escape plan."

            1. Calculate the smallest limb diameter on a persimmon tree that will support a 10 pound possum.

            2. Which of the following cars will rust out the quickest when placed on blocks in your front yard?
            A. ' 66 Ford Fairlane
            B. ' 69 Chevrolet Chevelle
            C. ' 64 Pontiac GTO

            3. If your uncle builds a still that operates at a capacity of 20 gallons of shine per hour, how many car radiators are necessary to condense the product?

            4. A pulpwood cutter has a chain saw that operates at 2700 rpm. The density of the pine trees in a plot to be harvested is 470 per acre. The plot is 2.3 acres in size. The average tree diameter is 14 inches. How many Budweiser Tall-Boys will it take to cut the trees?

            5. If every old refrigerator in the state vented a charge of R-12 simultaneously, what would be the decrease in the ozone layer?

            6. A front porch is constructed of 2x8 pine on 24-inch centers with a field rock foundation. The span is 8 feet and the porch length is 16 feet. The porch floor is 1 inch rough sawn pine. When the porch collapses, how many hound dogs, hogs, or chickens will be killed?

            For extra credit, how many of the vehicles that swerved will have mufflers and uncracked windshields?

            9. A coal mine operates an NFPA Class 1, Division 2 Hazardous Area. The mine employs 120 miners per shift. A gas warning is issued at the beginning of 3rd shift. How many cartons of unfiltered Camels will be smoked during the shift?

            10. At a reduction in gene pool variability rate of 7.5% per generation, how long will it take a town that has been bypassed by the interstate to breed a country-western singer?

                    • On the technical side, how do I resize my images to fall within the size limits of the Forums? I have a few images from my digital camera, but they are beyond the memory allowed for pictures on the forums. That is why most of what I have posted are from my cell phone's camera.

                        Error Sends Government Callers To Sex Service

                        POSTED: 9:36 am EST January 22, 2008
                        UPDATED: 10:05 am EST January 22, 2008

                        CALVERT, Md. -- A Cecil County man who phoned the governor's office with an opinion about the mortgage foreclosure debate realized he wasn't talking to a secretary when the woman who answered greeted him with a "Hi, sexy."

                        Pete Pritchard of Calvert discovered the number for the governor's office is misprinted in the latest edition of the Armstrong Telephone Co. phone book. The printed number connects with a phone sex service.

                        The previous edition had the same mistake. Pritchard wonders if he's the first person in two years who ever called the governor's office by using that directory.

                        An Armstrong executive said the directory information comes from a third-party source not controlled by the company. He said the error will be addressed in a message included with February bills.

                          Idiots Abound. "Armstrong Telephone Co"?? The REAL Phone Book is put out by Verizon. ANYTHING else claiming to be a Phone book, in Maryland anyway, isn't worth the paper it's printed on.
