    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation.

I got this today from my cousin, I thought would pass it along

The old man and the pond

An elderly man in Louisiana had owned a large farm for several years.

He had a large pond in the back. It was properly shaped for swimming, so he

fixed it up nice -- picnic tables, horseshoe courts, and some apple and

peach trees.

One evening the old farmer decided to go down to the pond, as he hadn't been

there for a while, and looks it over. He grabbed a five-gallon bucket to

bring back some fruit. As he neared the pond, he heard voices shouting and

laughing with glee. As he came closer he saw it was a bunch of young women

skinny-dipping in his pond. He made the women aware of his presence and

they all went to the deep end.

One of the women shouted to him, "We're not coming out until you leave!"

The old man frowned, "I didn't come down here to watch you ladies swim naked or make you get out of the pond naked." Holding the bucket up he said, "I'm here to feed the alligator."

Moral: Some old men can still think fast...
