Presidential Quotes

One day the President and Mrs. Coolidge were visiting a government
farm. Soon after their arrival they were taken off on separate tours.
When Mrs. Coolidge passed the chicken pens she paused to ask the man in charge if the rooster copulates more than once each day.

“Dozens of times,” was the reply.

“Please tell that to the President ,” Mrs. Coolidge requested.

When the President passed the pens and was told about the roosters, he asked, “Same hen every time?”

“Oh no, Mr. President, a different one each time.”

The President nodded slowly, then said, “Tell that to Mrs. Coolidge.”

Which reminds me of another presidential quote.

President Woodrow Wilson’s second wife, Edith Galt, supposedly once
said, “When Woodrow proposed to me, I was so surprised that I nearly
fell out of bed.”

The Brake Job

The Brake Job

A Software Engineer, a Hardware Engineer and a Departmental
Manager were on their way to a meeting in Switzerland. They were driving
down a steep mountain road when suddenly the brakes on their car
failed.

The car careered almost out of control down the road, bouncing
off the crash barriers, until it miraculously ground to a halt scraping
along the mountainside. The car’s occupants, shaken but unhurt, now had a
problem: they were stuck halfway down a mountain in a car with no
brakes. What were they to do?

“I know”, said the Departmental Manager, “Let’s have a meeting,
propose a Vision , formulate a Mission Statement, define some Goals, and
by a process of Continuous Improvement find a solution to the Critical
Problems, and we can be on our way.”

“No, no”, said the Hardware Engineer, “That will take far too long,
and besides, that method has never worked before. I’ve got my Swiss Army
knife with me, and in no time at all I can strip down the car’s braking
system, isolate the fault, fix it, and we can be on our way.”

“Well”, said the Software Engineer, “before we do anything, I think
we should push the car back up the road and see if it happens again.”

The Miracle of Birth

An old country doctor went way out to the boondocks to deliver a baby. It was so far out there was no electricity.

When the doctor arrived, no one was home except for the laboring mother and her 5-year-old child.

The doctor instructed the child to hold a lantern high so he could see while he helped the woman deliver the baby.

The child did so.

The mother pushed and after a little while, the doctor lifted the
newborn baby by the feet and spanked him on the bottom to get him to
take his first breath.

The doctor then asked the 5-year-old what he thought of what he had just witnessed.

“He shouldn’t have crawled in there in the first place,” the little boy said. “Spank him again.”

Cradle to Cradle, reshaping the way we make things.

The Computers Gender

The Computer’s Gender

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’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 impossible to understand for 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.

The women’s group 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;

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.
