Just have to share these stories of true genius in action...

The following are true stories...
Police in Oakland, California spent two hours attempting to subdue a
gunman who had barricaded himself inside his home. After firing ten tear
gas canisters, officers discovered that the man was standing beside them
in the police line, shouting "Please come out and give yourself up."

><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><

An Illinois man, pretending to have a gun, kidnapped a motorist and
forced him to drive to two different automated teller machines, wherein
the kidnapper proceeded to withdraw money from his own bank accounts.

><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><

A man spoke frantically into the phone, "My wife is pregnant and the
contractions are only two minutes apart!" "Is this her first child?" the
doctor asked. "No!", the man shouted, "This is her husband!"

><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><

In Modesto, California, Steven Richard King was arrested for trying to
hold up a Bank of America branch without a weapon. King used a thumb and
a finger to simulate a gun, but unfortunately, he failed to keep his
hand in his pocket. (hellllllooooooo!)

><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><

Last summer, down on Lake Isabella, located in the high desert, an hour
east of Bakersfield, California, some folks, new to boating, were having
a problem. No matter how hard they tried, they couldn't get their brand
new 22 ft. Bayliner to perform. It wouldn't get on a plane at all, and
it was very sluggish in almost every maneuver, no matter how much power
was applied. After about an hour of trying to make it go, they putted to
a nearby marina, thinking someone there could tell them what was wrong.
A thorough topside check revealed everything in perfect working
condition. The engine ran fine, the outdrive went up and down, the prop
was the correct size and pitch.

So, one of the marina guys jumped in the water to check underneath. He
came up choking on water, he was laughing so hard.

NOW REMEMBER THIS IS TRUE....Under the boat, still strapped securely in
place, was the trailer.

I don't get this, how was the boat attached to the trailer without the straps showing topside?

Both of the boats I've owned were nvere 'strapped' down. The boat rested on carpeted 2x4's and was winched up to the front where the dry weight of the boat kept it in place. When I backed it inot the water, the boat would (gasp) float and the trailer would not...thereby seperating the two.

And just to be the voice of reason, anytime an email or other document calims "This is really true!!!!" It probably isn't even close.
