There is a story about a popular young Baptist preacher, who on Sunday morning announces to the congregation that he will not renew his contract,and is moving on to a larger congregation that will pay him more.

There is a hush. No one wants him to leave.

Bubba, who owns several car dealerships, stands up and announces,

... "If the preacher stays, I'll provide him with a new sedan every year, and his lovely wife with a minivan, to transport their children!"

The congregation sighs, and applauds. Billy Bob, the entrepreneur and investor, stands and says, "If the preacher stays, I'll double his salary, and establish a foundation to guarantee the college education of his children!!"

More sighs and applause.

Ms. Ella May, aged 70, stands and announces, "If the preacher stays, I'll give him SEX!!" There is a hush.

The preacher, blushing, asks, "Ms. Ella May, whatever possessed you to say that?" Ms. Ella May answers, "I just asked My husband how we could help, and he said....... F*ck him

The first three posts are from 20003 and mine is the fourth. When I opened my browser, several hours ago, and clicked on SE bookmark that page opened with the first three posts. I read them and responded. And it wasn't a bookmark for a post, it was my regular SP bookmark.

I assumed it was at the top of the board, but, apparently it wasn't. Hummmm... something else to add to my list of 'Stuff I don't understand'.

if you had been going backwards through the pages at SE and ended up at that page, it was already at the top of THAT page and you thought it was at the top of the NEWEST page and when you replied to it, it got bumped all the way to the top again?

I hadn't been paging back. Besides, when I use the bookmark

for SE I have in the personal toolbar it always open SE at the top of the board. It's possible I had clicked one of the page numbers at top by accident just as SE loaded. Only thing I can think of.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
