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 themselves
whether "computer" should be a masculine or a feminine noun. Each group was
 asked to give four reasons for their recommendation. 


 The men's group decided that "computer" should definitely be of the
 feminine gender ("la computer"), 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. 


 The women's group, however, concluded that computers should be 
  masculine ("le computer"), 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

 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.
