Here’s an old joke that’s been floating around the Internet again:
Why computers may be female:
- No one but their creator understands their internal logic.
- The native language they use to communicate with other computers is incomprehensible to everyone else.
- Even the smallest mistakes are stored in long-term memory for later retrieval.
- As soon as you commit to one, you find yourself spending half your paycheck on accessories for it.
Why computers may be male:
- In order to do anything with them, you have to turn them on.
- They have a lot of data but still can’t think for themselves.
- They are supposed to help you solve problems, but half the time they ARE the problem.
- As soon as you commit to one, you realize that if you had waited a little longer, you could have gotten a better model.
