|"Ada is the work of an architect, not a computer scientist."|
- Jean Icbiah, inventor of Ada, weenie
|A biologist, a statistician, a mathematician and a computer scientist are on|
a photo-safari in Africa. As they're driving along the savannah in their
jeep, they stop and scout the horizon with their binoculars.
The biologist: "Look! A herd of zebras! And there's a white zebra!
Fantastic! We'll be famous!"
The statistician: "Hey, calm down, it's not significant. We only know
there's one white zebra."
The mathematician: "Actually, we only know there exists a zebra, which is
white on one side."
The computer scientist : "Oh, no! A special case!"
|A computer scientist is someone who fixes things that aren't broken.|
| A doctor, an architect, and a computer scientist were arguing about |
whose profession was the oldest. In the course of their arguments, they
got all the way back to the Garden of Eden, whereupon the doctor said, "The
medical profession is clearly the oldest, because Eve was made from Adam's
rib, as the story goes, and that was a simply incredible surgical feat."
The architect did not agree. He said, "But if you look at the Garden
itself, in the beginning there was chaos and void, and out of that the Garden
and the world were created. So God must have been an architect."
The computer scientist, who'd listened carefully to all of this, then
commented, "Yes, but where do you think the chaos came from?"
|It was kinda like stuffing the wrong card in a computer, when you're|
stickin' those artificial stimulants in your arm.
