 A language instructor was explaining to her class
                   that in French, nouns unlike their English counterparts, are
                   grammatically designated as masculine or feminine.
                   "House," in French, is feminine-"la maison."
                   "Pencil," in French, is masculine-"le crayon."
                   One puzzled student asked, "What gender is computer?"
                   The teacher did not know, and the word wasn't in her
                   French dictionary. So for fun she split the class into two
                   groups appropriately enough, by gender and asked them to
                   decide whether "computer" should be a masculine or feminine
                   Both groups were required to give four
                   reasons for their recommendation.
                   The women's group decided that computers
                   should be masculine ("le computer"), because:
                   1. In order to get their attention, you have to turn them on;
                   2. They have a lot of data but they are still clueless
                   3. They are supposed to help you solve problems, but
                   half the time they ARE the problem
                   4. As soon as you commit to one, you
                   realize that if you'd waited a little longer, you
                   could have gotten a better model.
                   The men's group, however, concluded that
                   computers should definitely be of the
                   feminine gender ("la computer"), because:
                   1. No one but their creator understands their internal logic
                   2. The native languagethey 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
                   4. As soon as you make a commitment to one, you
                   find yourself spending half your pay check on accessories for
