Computers...

Discussion in 'General Chat' started by Anele Jessica, Jan 20, 2008.


  1. A SPANISH Teacher was explaining to her class that in Spanish, unlikeEnglish, nouns are designated as either masculine or feminine.

    'House' for instance, is feminine: 'la casa.'

    'Pencil,' however, is masculine: 'el lapiz.'

    A student asked, 'What gender is 'computer'?'

    Instead of giving the answer, the teacher split the class into two
    groups, male and female, and asked them to decide for themselveswhether 'computer' should be a masculine or a feminine noun.

    Each group was asked to give four reasons for its recommendation.

    The men's group decided that 'computer' should definitely be of the

    feminine gender ('la computadora'), because:

    1. No one but their creator understands their internal logic;

    2. The native language they use to communicate with other computers is
    incomprehensible to everyone else;

    3. Even the smallest mistakes are stored in long term memory for possible later retrieval; and

    4. As soon as you make a commitment to one, you find yourself spending
    half your pay check on accessories for it.

    (THIS GETS BETTER!)

    The women's group, however, concluded that computers should be Masculine

    ('el computador'), because:

    1. In order to do anything with them, you have to turn them on;

    2. They have a lot of data but still can't think for themselves;

    3. They are supposed to help you solve problems, but half the time
    they ARE ; the problem; and

    4. As soon as you commit to one, you realize that if you had waited a
    little longer, you could have gotten a better model.

    The women won.
