Women: Mysterious as Computers
Tags: Computers, men, women, funny, amusing, Geeks
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. The Men decided a computer is more like a woman or feminine, here's why:
|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|
|4. ||As soon as you make a commitment to one, you find yourself spending half your paycheck on accessories for it.|
