  • Is Ignorance really bliss?

    Straight from the headlines:




    The rocket scientist

    Police in Wichita, Kansas, arrested a 22-year-old man at an airport hotel after he tried to pass two (counterfeit) $16 bills.



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    From KENTUCKY

    Two men tried to pull the front off a cash machine by running a chain from the machine to the bumper of their pickup truck. Instead of pulling the front panel off the machine, though, they pulled the bumper off their truck. Scared, they left the scene and drove home. With the chain still attached to the machine. With their bumper still attached to the chain. With their vehicle's license plate still attached to the bumper.



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    From ENGLAND

    A German "tourist," supposedly on a golf holiday, showed at customs with his golf bag. While making idle chatter about golf, the customs official realized that the tourist did not know what a "handicap" is. The customs official asked the tourist to demonstrate his swing, which he did--backward! Narcotics were found in the golf bag.



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    From ARIZONA

    A company called "Guns For Hire" stages gunfights for Western movies, etc. One day, they received a call from a 47-year-old woman, who wanted to have her husband killed. She got 4-1/2 years in jail.



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    From TEXAS

    A man convicted of robbery worked out a deal to pay $9600 in damages rather than serve a prison sentence. For payment, he provided the court a check--a *forged* check. He got 10 years.



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    From New Jersey

    A man successfully broke into a bank's basement through a street-level window, cutting himself up pretty badly in the process. He then realized that (1) he could not get to the money from where he was, (2) he could not climb back out the window through which he had entered, and (3) he was bleeding pretty badly. So he located a phone and dialed "911" for help ...



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    From VIRGINIA

    Two men in a pickup truck went to a new-home site to steal a refrigerator. Banging up walls, floors, etc., they snatched a refrigerator from one of the houses, and loaded it onto the pickup. The truck promptly got stuck in the mud, so these brain surgeons decided that the refrigerator was too heavy. Banging up *more* walls, floors, etc., they put the refrigerator BACK into the house, and returned to the pickup truck, only to realize that they locked the keys in the truck--so they abandoned it.



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    From New Jersey

    A man walked into a 7-11, put a $20 bill on the counter and asked for change. When the clerk opened the cash drawer, the man pulled a gun and asked for all the cash in the register, which the clerk promptly provided. The man took the cash from the clerk and fled--leaving the $20 bill on the counter. The total amount of cash he got from the drawer? Fifteen dollars.



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Angry robber

    When two service station attendants in Ionia, Michigan, refused to hand over the cash to an intoxicated robber, the man threatened to call the police. They still refused, so the robber called the police and was arrested.



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    High speed police chase

    A Los Angeles man who later said he was "tired of walking," stole a steamroller and led police on a 5 mph chase until an officer stepped aboard and brought the vehicle to a stop.



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    No Nukes

    The Chico, California, City Council enacted a ban on nuclear weapons, setting a $500 fine for anyone detonating one within city limits.

      My personal favorite.....

      Only a $500.00 fine for letting off a nuke bomb within city limits.
      Sounds like the good old USA to me.
      "War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

          Ignorance, IMHO, is never bliss.

          The real Browns are in Baltimore, see?
