Snopes Unanswerables

I got this from work. I use Snopes all the time to validate e-mails, rumors, etc. Unbelievable some of the questions people actually ask.

Software you can’t live without

Dear Tech Support:

Last year I upgraded from Girlfriend 7.0 to Wife 1.0. I soon noticed that the new program began unexpected child processing that took up a lot of space and valuable resources. In addition, Wife 1.0 installed itself into all other programs and now monitors all other system activity. Applications such as Poker Night 10.3, Football 5.0, Hunting and Fishing 7.5, and Racing 3.6 no longer run, crashing the system whenever selected.

I can’t seem to keep Wife 1.0 in the background while attempting to run my favorite applications. I’m thinking about going back to Girlfriend 7.0, but the uninstall doesn’t work on Wife 1.0. Please help!

Soft music was playing, and the aroma of perfume filled the room.

I’m waiting for John to come home from work,” the daughter-in-law answered.
“But you’re naked!” the mother-in-law exclaimed.
“This is my love dress,” the daughter-in-law explained.
“Love dress? But you’re naked!”
“John loves me to wear this dress,” she explained. “It excites him to no end.
Every time he sees me in this dress, he instantly becomes romantic and ravages me for hours on end. He can’t get enough of me.
The mother-in-law left. When she got home, she undressed, showered, put on her best perfume, dimmed the lights, put on a romantic CD, and
laid on the couch waiting for her husband to arrive.
Finally, her husband came home. He walked in and saw her laying there so provocatively.
“What are you doing?” he asked.
“This is my love dress,” she whispered, sensually.
“Needs ironing,” he said. “What’s for dinner

A Letter to Senator Clinton RE: Xbox and Playstation 2,0,1432940.story?coll=la-news-comment-opinions

I have to say this guy makes some interesting points. However disturbing some of the games out on the market are, sensorship is even more disturbing to me than violent games. IMHO, parents should be those who filter activities in which their children participate. The fact that goverment is trying to dig its grubby hands into what we are able to do with our lives is not comforting.

I came across this article on one of my techno-geek e-newsleeter subscriptions. Without hearing all the ins-and-outs of this case, she has a pretty good chance of crushing the giant.
