Greetings, 

Somehow I let my son talk me into taking him to see Superman 
Returns at the IMAX theater on Chicago's historic Navy Pier. 
The boy is a Superman fanatic and his mother encourages him 
by buying him all sorts of action figures and paraphernalia. 

It should be an adventure, though. The IMAX is over 60 feet 
tall and 80 feet wide. Plus, part of the movie is in 3-D. 
I think the boy will have the patience to sit through it, 
but the wife and our daughter are probably going to bail in 
the first hour. Fortunately, there is plenty to occupy their 
time on Navy Pier...all of which costs a small fortune. 

You know, I used to think that Lake Michigan (on which Navy 
Pier sits) was the largest body of fresh water in the world, 
but as it turns out it is only the largest body of fresh 
water in the Americas. 

The largest body of fresh water in the world is Russia's Lake 
Baikal. It is also the world's deepest and is home to about 
20 percent of the world's fresh water. 

They don't have a 60-foot tall movie theater, though.

************** BIZARRE STORY OF THE WEEK *************** 

------------------ The Myracle of Birth --------------------

PAHOKEE, Fla. - Kenyetta Biggs' baby didn't want to wait any 
longer to be born after she crashed her car into a canal. 
The 21-year-old girl ended up giving birth alone while still 
trapped in the wrecked vehicle waiting for help. Palm Beach 
County sheriff's Deputy Stephen Maxwell noticed a head poking 
out through some tall grass along the canal bank, and found 
Biggs trying to get out of the partially submerged car. "As 
I looked around her I saw the newborn baby laying in the 
passenger seat with the placenta and umbilical cord still 
attached," Maxwell said. Authorities said Biggs was on her 
way to the hospital when a strong contraction caused her to 
lose control of the car. Biggs and her new daughter, named 
Myracle, were taken to a hospital where authorities report 
they are doing well.

"Nice threads, man," commented Donald when his buddy showed 
up one day in a snappy new suit. "Where'd you pick 'em up?" 

Richard beamed. "My wife got them for me. Pretty sharp, huh?" 

"I'll say. What was the occasion?" 

"Got me," admitted Richard with a cheerful shrug. "I came 
home from work early the other day and there they were, 
hanging over the chair in the bedroom."

CLEAN LAFFS: 

The following conversation took place one morning between a 
wife and her now ex-husband. They were discussing government 
cost cuts that they recently heard about in the paper. 

"Honey," his wife said, while reading the newspaper, "it 
looks like our government is going to cut overhead and trim 
down the military forces. They are going to retire six over-
aged destroyers." 

To which the husband replies, "Oh...I'm sorry to hear your 
mother will be out of work."

to play 8 Ball, and the third table is set up to play 9 Ball. 
What is the total number of balls on the three tables?

TEASE ANSWER: 

7 Ball uses 7 colored balls and a cue ball (8). 8 Ball uses 
15 colored balls and a cue ball (16). 9 Ball uses 9 colored 
balls and a cue ball (10). 8+16+10=34.
