Great Imponderables! ...
contributed by Tomas Tidén of Funny Monday



When an agnostic dies, does he go to the "great perhaps"?

Why is the time of day with the slowest traffic called rush hour?
Do you think Houdini ever locked his keys in his car?
Why is there a road sign that says "Braille Institute, Next Exit"?
Can atheists get insurance for acts of God?
If procrastinators had a club would they ever have a meeting?
If the #2 pencil is the most popular, why is it still #2?
Have you ever wondered why just one letter makes all the difference between here and there?
When you go into a hotel you always see reception. Why do you never just see ception?
If time heals all wounds, how come the belly button stays the same?
If a lawyer and an IRS agent were both drowning, and you could only save one of them, would you go to lunch or read the paper?

Isn't it strange that the same people who laugh at gypsy fortune tellers take economists seriously?
If genetic scientists crossed a chicken with a zebra would they get a four-legged chicken with its own barcode?
If practice makes perfect, and nobody's perfect, why practice?
Why is there always one in every crowd?
If all the world is a stage, where does the audience sit?
Is it possible to have deja vu and amnesia at the same time?
Why do hair shampoo instructions say "Lather. Rinse. Repeat"? If you did this, would you ever be able to stop?
Who decided "Hotpoint" would be a good name for a company that sells refrigerators?
How do you know when it's time to tune your bagpipes?




Some Computer Terms ...


Alpha:-  Software undergoes alpha testing as a first step in getting user feedback. Alpha is Latin for "doesn't work."
Beta:-  Software undergoes beta testing shortly before it's released. Beta is Latin for "still doesn't work."
CPU:-  Central propulsion unit. The CPU is the computer's engine. It consists of a hard drive, an interface card and a tiny spinning wheel that's powered by a running rodent - a gerbil if the machine is a old machine, a ferret if it's a Pentium and a ferret on speed if it's a Pentium II.
Default Directory: -  Black hole. Default directory is where all files that you need disappear to.
Error message:-  Terse, baffling remark used by programmers to place blame on users for the program's shortcomings
File:-  A document that has been saved with an unidentifiable name. It helps to think of a file as something stored in a file cabinet - except when you try to remove the file, the cabinet gives you an electric shock and tells you the file format is unknown.
Hardware:-  Collective term for any computer-related object that can be kicked or battered.
Help:-  What we all need. Actually, it is the feature that assists in generating more questions. When the help feature is used correctly, users are able to navigate through a series of Help screens and end up where they started from without learning anything.
Input/Output:-  Information is input from the keyboard as intelligible data and output to the printer as unrecognizable junk.
Interim Release:-   Information is input from the A programmer's feeble attempt at repentance.
Memory:-  Of computer components, the most generous in terms of variety, and the skimpiest in terms of quantity.
Printer:-  A joke in poor taste. A printer consists of three main parts: the case, the jammed paper tray and the blinking red light.
Programmers:-  Computer avengers. Once members of that group of high school nerds who wore tape on their glasses, played Dungeons and Dragons, and memorized Star Trek episodes; now millionaires who create "user-friendly" software to get revenge on whoever gave them noogies.



Funny Bumper Stickers...

Remember, it's not only a car that can be recalled by it's maker.
How do they get the kangaroo or deer to cross at that yellow road sign?

YOU come get these handcuffs off!
If you're in a vehicle going the speed of light,

Car service:
If it ain't broke, we'll break it.
There are two kinds of pedestrians
the quick and the dead.
I have an answering machine in my car.
It says: I'm home now. But leave a message and I'll call when I'm out.
When I get real bored, I like to drive downtown and get a great parking spot, then sit in my car and count how many people ask me if I'm leaving.
Beat the 5 o'clock rush,
leave work at noon!
Earth first!
(We'll strip-mine the other planets later)
Support your country police
Drive really fast.
YES this is my truck.
NO I wont help you move.
You're driving a car!!  
It isn't a telephone booth, a beauty parlour or a restaurant.
My karma ran over your dogma.
I didn't fight my way to the top of the food chain to be a vegetarian.
If you are close enough to read this,
I am close enough to slam on my brakes and sue you.
