  1. It's Monday, we all need some cheering up! :rolleyes:



    Reaching the end of a job interview, the Human Resources Officer asks a young engineer fresh out of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, "And what starting salary are you looking for?" The engineer replies, "In the region of $125,000 a year, depending on the benefits package." The interviewer inquires, "Well, what would you say to a package of five weeks vacation, 14 paid holidays, full medical and dental, company matching retirement fund to 50% of salary, and a company car leased every two years, say, a red Corvette?" The engineer sits up straight and says, "Wow! Are you kidding?" The interviewer replies, "Yeah, but you started it."

  2. Sadly, I suspect this conversation in the real-world might go in exactly the opposite direction.


    Today's students have a propensity to "figure things out" without documentation .. in fact, I suspect some of them are unaware that such a concept actually exists.


    You're probably very right, indeed! Even children of today work things out without manuals and should there be a need for information, you've got the Internet. I am constantly informed about technical insights that I wouldn't have a clue about, from my children. Oh the youth of today ;)

  3. I thought this was funny ;)


    A husband and wife are trying to set up a new password for their computer. The husband puts, "Mypenis," and the wife falls on the ground laughing because on the screen it says, "Error. Not long enough."
