    The group of women concluded that computers should be referred to in the
    masculine gender because:

    1. They have a lot of data but are still clueless
    2. They are supposed to help you solve your problems, but half the
    time they ARE the problem
    3. In order to get their attention, you have to turn them on
    4. As soon as you commit to one, you realize that, if you had waited
    a little longer, you could have had a better model.

    What on earth would life be like without problems? We need each other (genders) for this, lol !

    WOMEN !!! If you have another spin on this, please, don't hold back...

    Yep, that much is true, as men view "most" women in much the same manner, not all, but most.
    So, where does the "BUCK" stop? (it's late, and am feeling "baited" into this one lol) Where is
    *puppy*

    P.S. Daisy, thumbs down just for laughs...

    A computer has no gender, its a machine! :D How can a machine have a gender? Only humans/animals have gender. If a computer has a gender, then does Windows 95/98/ME/NT/2000/XP have gender too?

    Mine must be male.......

    It sits there doing nothing until prompted
    It does things illogically sometimes without any input from me.
    It will never ask for directions, just goes on its own merry way sometimes.
    It cannot do *the* housecleaning when I do housecleaning on it.

    .....and I am always calling it a useless piece of crap.......when it won't do what I want. [sound familiar]

    :D

    I would say they're female cause

    (THESE ARE JUST JOKES!!!!!!)

    1. They crash when you don't want 'em to.

    2. They tend to cost a lot, at least for the good one's.

    3. Their outdated right after you get 'em.

    4. They can't think for themselves. They can only do what they're told, and then only sometimes.

    Yes, ONLY Jokes !!! :D

    Sits there doing nothing untol prompted, Male.
    It does things illogically without any input from me, sorry Tas, Female.
    They can't think for themselves (logic conflict), they can only do what they're told, and then, only sometimes, Female.


    Thankyou Gentlemen.
    I must add;
    When they crash, they do not accept accountability! Female.


    (I'll be back for this one...)
    GF :D :D :D

    Daisy, I noticed you were gone a week or so, only to come back and "flood" Ten-Forward with all this propaganda. (~laughing~ :D )

    What, are you up to?

    Yes. It takes me a while to think this stuff up! Although I believe my assertions are more factual than propaganda. :D
