Computer - Male or Female

What gender your computer is?
No scientific experiments has given the final results yet, but... Here you'll find some good reasons to believe why FEMALE is the right answer.

  • No one but their creator understands their internal logic.
  • The native language they use to communicate with other computers is incomprehensible to anyone else.
  • Even your smallest mistakes are stored in long-term memory for later retrieval - when you're not expecting it.
  • The message "Bad command or filename" is just as informative as "If you don't understand why I'm angry with you, then I have no intension of telling you!"
  • You do the same thing for years, and suddenly it's wrong.
  • Can produce incorrect results with alarming speed.
  • As soon as you make a commitment to one, you find yourself spending half your paycheck on accessories for it.
  • You're spending 70% of your time trying to understand how it works.
  • A better model is always just around the corner.
  • They make you take the garbage out.
  • The system breaks down at least once a month - or more often...
  • Miss a period and they go wild.

Anyway, there are also some reasons to suspect that computers are MALE.

  • They have a lot of data but are still clueless.
  • They look nice and shiny until you bring them home.
  • It's always necessary to have a backup.
  • They'll do whatever you say if you push the right buttons.
  • In order to get their attention, you have to turn them on.
  • Big power surges knock them out for the night.
  • They are supposed to help you solve your problems, but half the time they ARE the problem.
  • Size does matter.
