The Saturday Night Joke

A man with no enemies

Toward the end of the Sunday service the minister asked, "How many of you have forgiven your enemies?"

80% held up their hands.

The minister then repeated his question. All responded this time, except one man, Walter Barnes.

The minister said, "Walter, are you not willing to forgive your enemies?"

"I don't have any," he replied gruffly.

"That is very unusual. How old are you?"

"Ninety-eight," he replied. The congregation stood up and clapped their hands.

"Oh, Walter, would you please come down in front and tell us all how a person can live ninety-eight years and not have an enemy in the world?"

Walter tottered down the aisle, stopped in front of the pulpit, turned around, faced the congregation, and said, "I outlived all them assholes."

Then he calmly returned to his seat.

There are too many people moving to our area. If you want to move use this website for cities who want you.

Over the past several years, a handful of states and smaller cities have tried to get members of the remote workforce to give up their big-city lives (and rents) to move to their town—luring them in with everything from cash, to land, to bicycles. While those offers may have been tempting before, a lot of office-based workers didn’t have the option of relocating to a new city and keeping their job.

But now, more than a year into companies realizing that their employees aren’t children who won’t get anything done unless the boss is in the room, the idea of packing up and starting over in Tulsa, Northwest Arkansas, or Vermont isn’t just appealing—for more people than ever, it’s a possibility. And now, shopping for a new hometown that’s vying for your residency has gotten easier, courtesy of a new website that puts all the information you need in one spot

Another regular contributor is Isophorone Blog. The following story is very interesting. And as a fellow who messes around with canvas and brush I am in awe. The Art Forger Who Became a National Hero

In July of 1945, Han van Meegeren picked up his badger-hair brush and began to paint his last forgery.

Over a decade, the wiry Dutchman had surreptitiously become Europe’s premier conman -- a disgruntled artist-turned-forger who’d sold his works for tens of millions of dollars. Fueled by rejection from the art world, he had duped leading critics, wealthy collectors, and even a high-ranking Nazi official into believing his works were real. What’s more, he had chosen to do so by emulating the works of Jan Vermeer, a technically-immaculate master of the Dutch Golden Age.

But post-World War II, a “Vermeer” painting sold to Nazi Reichsmarschall Hermann Göring was traced back to van Meegeren -- a painting of such high quality that experts agreed no one could have possibly fabricated it. Accused of plundering for the Germans, the artist was sentenced to death. In an odd twist, van Meegeren was given one last chance to prove his innocence: If he could produce a brilliant forgery before the eyes of court-appointed witnesses, he'd be spared. What ensued would make the man one of the most popular figures in the Netherlands.

This is the story of Han Van Meegeren, the most dramatic forger of the 20th century.

It's bad enough his girlfriend broke up with him. Now he has to bail you out. Now that is a Genius Award Winner.

KEARNS — Criminal charges were filed Thursday against a Murray man who police say was involved in a drive-by shooting targeting his friend's ex-girlfriend.

Bradon Alex Quilter Watson, 20, is charged in 3rd District Court with possession of an explosive device, obstruction of justice, and shooting resulting in injury, all second-degree felonies; three counts of illegal shooting, a third-degree felony; plus criminal mischief and trespassing, class B misdemeanors.

On March 16, Unified police officers at the Kearns precinct heard gunshots and squealing tires about 1:40 a.m. They quickly found a house near 5600 South and 4200 West that had a bullet hole in the front window and four shell casings on the ground outside, according to charging documents.

A vehicle was also in the driveway with its tires slashed and part of a blade sticking out of one of them.
