Are Computers Male or Female?

Are Computers Male or Female?

A language teacher was explaining to her class that in French, nouns unlike their English counterparts, are grammatically designated as masculine or feminine.

"House" in French, is feminine -"la maison," "Pencil" in French, is masculine "le crayon."

One puzzled student asked, "What gender is computer?" The teacher did not know, and the word was not in her French dictionary.

So for fun she split the class into two groups appropriately enough, by gender and asked them to decide whether "computer" should be a masculine or a feminine noun.

Both groups were required to give four reasons for their recommendation.

The men's group decided that computer should definitely be of the feminine gender ("la computer"), 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 review

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 masculine "le computer") 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 realise that if you had waited a little longer you could have gotten a better model.


I thought this was a pretty brilliant little blerb that I found on lol.com.

Anyway, wow, I haven't written in a while. I guess nothing to write about really, the past month has been relatively boring. It was really nice having a 4 day weekend, I was sick last Friday and I was actually sick since Wednesday when I lost my voice and when I found it wasn't really getting better I took Friday off. Very relaxing, apart from a phone call from a friend who's life was apparently ending because she didn't know if there was a math pop quiz on Friday(I, in my delightful morning mood after being awaken from a deep sleep informed her that there was indeed a quiz), Friday was quite peaceful. But once my long weekend ended, the past week, I encountered a problem that I knew existed, but never bothered to take care of it. After receiving my mid-semester grades in a progress report, I was absolutely horrified at my grades!(you need not know what they are) I realized I have to face the growing truth that tennis and MSN are taking over my life. In other words, impacting my grades. I had to face the fact that while I am writing my homework, I am ALWAYS signed in and if somebody messages me, I reply immediately. How awful. So, my very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very late new year's resolution is to (try to) not talk on MSN at the very least while doing written homework. How awful, I think i'm breaking the resolution already. So if any of you have actually read my entry down this far (doubt it ), could the kind souls who have me on MSN just remind me once in a while whenever they can, to focus on studying please? I would be grateful for that.

With that, i'll leave you with a blonde joke. (please don't be offended should any blondes read this )

A blonde, brunette and a red head are walking.

Brunette: I think we're lost.

Red Head: Yeah.

Blonde: Look! An old house!

The girls go inside.

Red Head: Look, a bottle!

Brunette: Let's open it!

The Blonde opens the bottle. A genie appears.

Genie: You each get one wish.

Brunette: I wish I was home. (SHE'S TAKEN HOME)

Red Head: I wish I was home. (SHE IS TAKEN HOME)

Blonde: I wish my friends were here with me.

SloKid - Yes, you do remind me to work often. For instance, right now. What is your name? I never asked you.

Kate - I quite agree. Although the argument that says that computers are female is pretty good too. Well I thought the joke was pretty funny. I love that joke website.

Dee - I know, isn't it? Loved those 4 reasons that both groups came up with. I'll try to study hard. Just remind me when you come online.
