PostSubject: It Figures!!   Wed Nov 11, 2009 3:34 pm

A Spanish teacher was explaining to her class that in Spanish, unlike English, nouns are designated as either masculine or feminine.

'House' for instance, is feminine: 'la casa.'

'Pencil,' however, is masculine: 'el lapiz.'

A student asked, 'What gender is 'computer'?'

Instead of giving the answer, the teacher split the class into two

groups, male and female, and asked them to decide for themselves

whether computer' should be a masculine or a feminine noun.. Each

group was asked to give four reasons for its recommendation.


The men's group decided that 'computer' should definitely be of the
feminine gender ('la computadora'), because:

1.. No one but their creator understands their internal logic;

2. The native language they use to communicate with other computers
is incomprehensible to everyone else;

3. Even the smallest mistakes are stored in long term memory for
possible later retrieval; and

4. As soon as you make a commitment to one, you find yourself
spending half your paycheck on accessories for it.



(THIS GETS BETTER!)

The women's group, however, concluded that computers should be
Masculine ('el computador'), because:


1. In order to do anything with them, you have to turn them on;


2. They have a lot of data but still can't think for themselves;

3. They are supposed to help you solve problems, but half the time
they ARE the problem; and

4. As soon as you commit to one, you realize that if you had waited
a little longer, you could have gotten a better model..



The women won.

Add on to the man's group

The men's group decided that 'computer' should definitely be of the
feminine gender ('la computadora'), because:

1.. No one but their creator understands their internal logic;

2. The native language they use to communicate with other computers
is incomprehensible to everyone else;

3. Even the smallest mistakes are stored in long term memory for
possible later retrieval; and

4. As soon as you make a commitment to one, you find yourself
spending half your paycheck on accessories for it.

5. Happy when just got it, Patient when using it, Sick when dealing with it, but... Just cant live without it.

6. The New or Latest manufactured always look more tempting.

7. Will be seating there until you approach.

8. Always curious what's inside.... even the engineering concept is still the same.

9. NEVER TOO HAPPY WHEN YOU OWN IT
YOUR NIGHTMARE HAS JUST BEGIN

10. Once a while will get the deadly blue screen, so can't use it for a period of time.

11. More and more maintenance required as time passes.

12. Harder and harder to get it turned on as time passes.

Please add to the list.
