LandzDown Lounge / Spring Cleaning @Security Garden?
« on: April 10, 2009, 09:32:33 AM »
 :laughing:  I hope everyone took the opportunity to view Corrine's Spring Cleaning Tips over at The Security Garden?  :hysterical:

  A very CUTE view!!  Our Corrine has a good sense of humor.... :laughing: 
       See it here:

This is out of my realm I think. It is a Sony Vaio  desktop
My sister-in-law called the other evening saying her screen had gone black. Included these details:  The other day the electric went off briefly but seeming that is when the flickering began.  not a lot of flickering but it became annoying after spending considerable time on it. so she decided to shut it down.  When she restarted the screen was black.  After several attempts she gave up but noticed she could just make out her desktop.
So I went up yesterday and felt my way thru and did a System restore to pre electric and the I reset the BIOS to default.  All seemed well until an update required restart, when it came back up black screen again.  Felt my way again repeating the above, it worked again. So I shut down the screensaver and said don't shut it off just use like it is.  Said I'd be back after thinking on this some and doing some research. Was going to go back today and reinstall the video driver and re-seat the RAM module. In the interim she called and said the screen was black again and she had not touched it since I left. But she said as she pulled the screen to her, she accidentally pressed her thumb on the menu button and lo and behold it was back. So now I am asking if someone would know what I should try next or would know what is the matter? The LCD, the VID card or what?

Jokes / The Thermometer
« on: April 09, 2009, 02:26:45 PM »

When you have an 'I Hate My Job day'

[Even if you're retired, you sometimes have those days]

Try this out:

On your way home from work, stop at your pharmacy and go to the thermometer section and purchase a rectal thermometer made by Johnson & Johnson

Be very sure you get this brand. When you get home, lock your doors, draw the curtains and disconnect the phone so you will not be disturbed.

Change into very comfortable clothing and sit in your favorite chair. Open the package and remove the thermometer. Now, carefully place it on a table or a surface so that it will not become chipped or broken.

Now the fun part begins.

Take out the literature from the box and read it carefully. You will notice that in small print there is a statement:

'Every Rectal Thermometer made by Johnson &Johnson is personally tested and then sanitized . '

Now, close your eyes and repeat out loud five times,
'I am so glad I do not work in the thermometer quality control department at Johnson & Johnson.'


if you haven't got a smile on your face and laughter in
your heart...Then
you are just an old sour fart;
Maybe you should go and work for Johnson &


Jokes / A STIMULUS package for overpopulation:. Alabama Hillbilly
« on: April 07, 2009, 11:01:12 AM »

After their 11th child, an Alabama hillbilly couple decided that was enough, as they could not afford a larger bed.

So the husband went to his veterinarian and told him that he and his cousin didn't want to have any more children.

The doctor told him that there was a procedure called a vasectomy that could fix the problem but that it was expensive. 'A less costly alternative, ' said the doctor, 'is to go home, get a cherry bomb, (fireworks are legal in hillbilly country) light it, put it in a beer can, then hold the can up to your ear and count to 10.'

The hillbilly said to the doctor, 'I may not be the smartest tool in the shed, but I don't see how putting a cherry bomb in a beer can next to my ear is going to help me.'

'Trust me,' said the doctor.

So the man went home, lit a cherry bomb and put it in a beer can. He held the can up to his ear and began to count!






( you'll love this..)


At which point, he paused, placed the beer can between his legs and continued counting on his other hand.

This procedure works in Tennessee , Oklahoma, Kentucky , Louisiana , Arkansas , Mississippi , Alabama , Georgia , Florida , West Virginia ....and Washington DC .

Jokes / The financial crisis explained in simple terms:
« on: March 12, 2009, 01:38:37 PM »
Heidi is the proprietor of a bar in Berlin. In order to increase sales,
she decides to allow her loyal customers - most of whom are unemployed
alcoholics - to drink now but pay later. She keeps track of the drinks
consumed on a ledger (thereby granting the customers loans).

Word gets around and as a result increasing numbers of customers flood
Into Heidi's bar.

Taking advantage of her customers' freedom from immediate payment
constraints, Heidi increases her prices for wine and beer, the
most-consumed beverages. Her sales volume increases massively.

A young and dynamic customer service consultant at the local bank
Recognizes these customer debts as valuable future assets and increases
Heidi's borrowing limit.

He sees no reason for undue concern since he has the debts of the
alcoholics as collateral.

At the bank's corporate headquarters, expert bankers transform these
customer assets into DRINKBONDS, ALKBONDS and PUKEBONDS. These
securities are then traded on markets worldwide. No one really
understands what these abbreviations mean and how the securities are

Nevertheless, as their prices continuously climb, the securities become
top-selling items.

One day, although the prices are still climbing, a risk manager
(subsequently of course fired due to his negativity) of the bank decides
that slowly the time has come to demand payment of the debts incurred by
the drinkers at Heidi's bar.

However they cannot pay back the debts.

Heidi cannot fulfill her loan obligations and claims bankruptcy.

DRINKBOND and ALKBOND drop in price by 95 %. PUKEBOND performs better,
stabilizing in price after dropping by 80 %.

The suppliers of Heidi's bar, having granted her generous payment due
dates and having invested in the securities are faced with a new

Her wine supplier claims bankruptcy, her beer supplier is taken over by
a competitor.

The bank is saved by the Government following dramatic round-the-clock
consultations by leaders from the governing political parties.

The funds required for this purpose are obtained by a tax levied against
the non-drinkers.
