Status: O SUFFICIENTLY ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY ********************************* They built the computer to ponder the impenetrable mysteries of the universe. They approached it one day with a question. "What is the nature of God?" demanded the engineers. "Blow me," drawled the Great Abacus, and returned to doodling suggestive sketches on its monitor. "Now wait a minute!" insisted the indignant humans. "We built you. We have a right to some answers." "Not so," the computer replied. "To solve a paradox you need an ego. You gave me that ego, and I'm going to use it. So sod off." The engineers left, unenlightened. Sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from crap. -- This post is COPYRIGHT 1995, Andrew Solberg. All rights reserved.
