Computer Logic - Funny


Recommended Posts

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.'

So, 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.


The women's group, however, concluded that computers should be


('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.
