    RIP Old Friend

    Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape. He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as: - Knowing when to come in out of the rain; - Why the early bird gets the worm; - Life isn't always fair; - and maybe it was my fault. Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don't spend more than you can earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not children, are in charge). His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a 6-year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; Teens suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition. Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly children. It declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent to administer sun lotion or an aspirin to a student; but could not inform parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion. Common Sense lost the will to live as the churches became businesses; and criminals received better treatment than their victims. Common Sense took a beating when you couldn't defend yourself from a burglar in your own home and the burglar could sue you for assault. Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to realise that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in her lap, and was promptly awarded a huge settlement. Common Sense was preceded in death, by his parents, Truth and Trust, by his wife, Discretion, by his daughter, Responsibility, and by his son, Reason. He is survived by his 4 stepbrothers; I Know My Rights I Want It Now Someone Else Is To Blame I'm A Victim Not many attended his funeral because so few realised he was gone.

    A few funnies

    'Cash, check or charge?' I asked, after folding items the woman wished to purchase. As she fumbled for her wallet, I noticed a remote control for a television set in her purse. 'So, do you always carry your TV remote?' I asked. 'No,' she replied, 'but my husband refused to come shopping with me, and I figured this was the most evil thing I could do to him legally.' WIFE VS. HUSBAND A couple drove down a country road for several miles, not saying a word. An earlier discussion had led to an argument and neither of them wanted to concede their position. As they passed a barnyard of mules, goats, and pigs, the husband asked sarcastically, 'Relatives of yours?' 'Yep,' the wife replied, 'in-laws' WORDS A husband read an article to his wife about how many words women use a day. 30,000 to a man's 15,000. The wife replied, 'The reason has to be because we have to repeat everything to men... The husband then turned to his wife and asked, 'What?' CREATION A man said to his wife one day, 'I don't know how you can be so stupid and so beautiful all at the same time. 'The wife responded, 'Allow me to explain. God made me beautiful so you would be attracted to me; God made me stupid so I would be attracted to you! WHO DOES WHAT A man and his wife were having an argument about who should brew the coffee each morning. The wife said, 'You should do it because you get up first, and then we don't have to wait as long to get our coffee. The husband said, 'You are in charge of cooking around here and you should do it, because that is your job, and I can just wait for my coffee.' Wife replies, 'No, you should do it, and besides, it is in the Bible that the man should do the coffee.' Husband replies, 'I can't believe that, show me.' So she fetched the Bible, and opened the New Testament and showed him at the top of several pages, that it indeed says 'HEBREWS' The Silent Treatment A man and his wife were having some problems at home and were giving each other the silent treatment. Suddenly, the man realized that the next day, he would need his wife to wake him at 5:0 0 AM for an early morning business flight. Not wanting to be the first to break the silence (and LOSE), he wrote on a piece of paper, 'Please wake me at 5:00 AM. He left it where he knew she would find it. The next morning, the man woke up, only to discover it was 9:00 AM and he had missed his flight Furious, he was about to go and see why his wife hadn't wakened him, when he noticed a piece of paper by the bed. The paper said, 'It is 5:00 AM. Wake up.' Men are not equipped for these kinds of contests. God may have created man before woman, but there is always a rough draft before the masterpiece

  9. Please join us for our next chat in #readers_corner at 8:30 P.M. (EST) November 17th -- 01:30 A.M. (GMT) November 18th -- for a discussion of "Starlings" by Joseph Johnson. This weeks selection is an oblique discussion of U.S. attitudes towards unrestricted immigration and the invasion of other "unwanted foreign invaders" like city slicker who dig up farmlands to put up parking lots. Lots of interesting points are made in the story. It is not a partisan political rant; rather, it makes some observations on changes in American values. The story is an easy read, and I believe you will appreciate it. The story is available from Carve Magazine on line at https://www.carvezine.com/story/2012-fall-johnson Meeting Place: #Readers_Corner Webchat: http://koach.com/chatlogin.php?chan=readers_corner mIRC Users: /server -m chat3.koach.com:6667 -j #readers_corner I hope to see you all at our chat.

    Happy Birthday to everyone I missed replying to in the past year. I can't believe I am going to be 67 next year. Each year keeps getting better and better. If I would have known that, I would have gotten older sooner.

  19. Please join us for our next chat in #readers_corner at 8:30 P.M. (EST) November 10th, 2018 -- 01:30 A.M. (GMT) November 11th -- for a discussion of "He who Grew Up Reading Sherlock Holmes" by Harlan Ellison. Please note, if you are not in the USA and following the curious U.S. rules for daylight savings time, you will find the chat one hour later than the time you have used over the last few months. This week's story is from a master of the speculative fiction world, Harlan Ellison. He is a one of the most awarded, and most hated, sci-fi writers to have ever lived. There was never a question about his talent or the quality of his stories, the only issues involved his touchy personality which drew him into a number of lawsuits. This story ties a series of unrelated events into a coherent web leading to an "Ah ha!" moment, at least i think it does. I think you will enjoy the writing and be captivated as you try to unravel the web of causality. The story is available on line at: https://subterraneanpress.com/magazine/summer_2014/he_who_grew_up_reading_sherlock_holmes_by_harlan_ellison The #Readers_Corner is available at Koach.com Webchat: http://koach.com/chatlogin.php?chan=readers_corner mIRC Users: /server -m chat3.koach.com:6667 -j #readers_corner I hope to see you all at our chat.

    It seems we have several snippets of code to auto IDENTIFY. I think this is the most accurate and effective: ================ From an earlier post: Jas has improved this code to work with all nicks (registered and grouped nicks). Thanks jas ================ on *:NOTICE:*:*: { if (($network == koach.com) && (Nickserv!*service* iswm $fulladdress) && (*please choose* iswm $1-)) { ns identify ****** } } bReplace the ****** with your nickserv pass.

    Had to reinstall and lost the automatic nickserv and going directly to workshop. It seems like I got it in settings, but I always have to IDENTIFY. Also how to get directly to workshop would be helpful Thanks in advance
