Back up my hard drive?

 How do I put it in reverse?



Have you ever noticed? Anybody going slower than you is an idiot, and anyone going faster is a maniac.

The things kids say ...

While taking a routine vandalism report at an elementary School, I was interrupted by a little girl about six years old.

Looking up and down at my uniform, she asked, "Are you a cop?" "Yes," I answered and continued writing the report.

"My mother said if I ever needed help I should ask the police. Is that right?" "Yes, that's right," I told her. "Well,then," she said as she extended her foot toward me, "would you please tie my shoelace?"

BRITTANY (4) had earache and wanted a painkiller. She tried in vain to take the lid off the bottle. Seeing her frustration, her mom explained it was a childproof cap and she'd have to open it for her. Eyes wide with wonder, the little girl asked: "How does it know its me?"

DANI (4) stepped onto the bathroom scale and asked: "How much do I cost?"

ANDREA (4) was singing and humming, filled with the joy of life. Full of smiles, she turned to her dad and said: "I'm so happy I could vomit."

MARC (4) was engrossed in a young couple who were hugging and kissing in a restaurant. Without taking his eyes off them, he asked his dad: "Why is he whispering in her mouth?"

CLINTON (5) was in his bedroom looking worried. When his mom asked what was troubling him, he replied, "I don't know what'll happen with this bed when I get married. How will my wife fit in?"

JAMES (4) was listening to a Bible story. His dad read: "The man named Lot was warned to take his wife and flee out of the city, but his wife looked back and was turned to salt." Concerned, James asked: "What happened to the flea?"

Everyone has a photographic memory. Some just don't have film.

Did you ever notice when you blow in a dog's face he gets mad at you?
But when you take him in a car he sticks his head out the window!

A day without sunshine is like -- well, night.
Ugh! Had too many of those lately - Summer where are you?)

On the other hand, you have different fingers.

How many home educators does it take to change a light bulb?

- Only one, but you must make sure you mark it down to physics (electricity and light), technology, PE (climbing ladder), logical reasoning and social skills (well we can't see each other in the dark, can we?)

- How many curriculum-based home schoolers...?

None. Home electrics isn't something that should be studied until at least 10th grade, so they'll have to call in the electrician at the weekend.

- How many LEA inspectors...? 

This complex job should really only be undertaken by qualified electricians, but the law does acknowledge the right of ordinary people to take responsibility for their own electricity, so long as they know what they're doing. First they need to read the guidelines for acceptable amounts of light in a room. Then if they're sure they can manage this, they'll need to take a course in electronics and register as a home electrician, giving date of birth, qualifications, and any details of previous problems with wiring.

- How many autonomous educators...? 

As many as want to, whenever they feel like it. But they'll probably need a whole box of light bulbs, because they'll want to experiment to find out how to make them break.

- How many TCS educators? 

The trouble is, the old light bulb doesn't want to be removed. Difficult to find a win-win situation here, but after some brainstorming, the solution is to buy an entire new light fitting and re-wire the room, while leaving the old light bulb where it was.

How many bullies does it take to change a light bulb? 

Four. Do you have a problem with that?

 How many yuppy home educators?-

Two - one to call the electrician, and one to pour the sherry.

 How many feminist home educators?

One. And it's NOT FUNNY!

 How many UK home educating families...?

Estimates vary, but nobody really knows.
