To lie or keep in hiding, as for some evil reason.  To move or go in a mean, stealthy manner.

Skulking through past issues

Jr. Skulker Doug read the joke in last Thursday's issue and wrote:  "The answering machine messages at the Mental Health Hotline reminded me of another one ...

"Incontinent Hotline. Can you hold?"


Last Thursday's issue also had a link to a site with excuses why people abandoned dogs and cats to the pound.  Jr. Skulker 925 wanted to copy the text from that page into an email message and his method of doing copies is to select the text, then press the right mouse button and choose "copy" from the menu.  If you attempt this on the excuses site, JavaScript coding prevents you from getting the menu when you right-click, although you can still copy the text from the Edit menu or by pressing CTRL-C.  Mr. 925 mentioned this to WebSkulker who attempted to view the source HTML code of the page, but got an error message saying "CODING ACCESS DENIED". 

WebSkulker found this very strange because he had never seen a site block it's HTML like this.  He shortly figured out the secret to viewing the source code, and decided to have a contest about it.  Go to this URL:
and attempt to view the source code.  If you can, send an email to telling us how you did it, and in several days we will publish the answer and the names of the winners.  If you can't figure it out, you will kick yourself when you see the answer, and there happens to be a clue down below in this issue.

WebSkulker goes to Hollywood

Here are three sites about the entertainment industry:

Jr. Skulker Busbar suggested this site about the history of radio broadcasting in the San Francisco Bay Area.  It has many articles on the history of particular stations, technical descriptions of early radio devices such as the machine that generated the NBC chimes, sample program schedules and frequency charts during the 1920's, lots of photographs including behind-the-scenes tours, and more.


Jr. Skulker Batteryman suggested this site that is a tribute to voice actors.  It has detailed searchable listings and information about the voice actors who appear in TV shows, movies, and video games.


Jr. Skulker Frank Telles just opened this web site which features historic and modern photos of the famous streets, buildings, and other tourist attractions in Hollywood.

WebSkulker is tied up in knots

Jr. Skulker Busbar also suggested this site about knots, real knots in ropes.  Most of the site is links to other sites with descriptions of knots, how to tie them, and what each one is good for.  There is a section on neckties and their knots.  One expert with ropes didn't have a tie with him, but was invited to a formal dinner with the Japanese ambassador.  Here is what he did:

... to skulk on the other side

Jr. Skulker Chicken Head runs this site which: "caught all the chicken jokes and put them in one coop!"

This made WebSkulker laugh

The following short quiz consists of 4 questions and tells whether you are truly a "professional." Scroll down for the answer. The questions are not that difficult. 

1. How do you put a giraffe into a refrigerator? 

The Correct Answer: Open the refrigerator, put in the giraffe and close the door. This question tests whether you tend to do simple things in an overly complicated way. 

2. How do you put an elephant into a refrigerator? 

The Wrong Answer: Open the refrigerator, put in the elephant and close the refrigerator.
The Correct Answer: Open the refrigerator, take out the giraffe, put in the elephant and close the door. This tests your ability to think through the repercussions of your actions. 

3. The Lion King is hosting an animal conference, all the animals attend except one. Which animal does not attend? 

The Correct Answer: The Elephant. The Elephant is in the refrigerator. This tests your memory.

OK, even if you did not answer the first three questions, correctly, you still have one more chance to show your abilities. 

4. There is a river you must cross. But it is inhabited by crocodiles. How do you manage it? 

The Correct Answer: You swim across. All the Crocodiles are attending the Animal Meeting! This tests whether you learn quickly from your mistakes. 

According to Andersen Consulting Worldwide, around 90% of the professionals they tested got all questions wrong. But many preschoolers got several correct answers. Andersen Consulting says this conclusively disproves the theory that most professionals have the brains of a four year old. And proves that indeed, you did learn all you needed to know in Kindergarten!
