    I stole this:

    HELPLINE:"Ford Helpline, how can I help you?"
    CUSTOMER:"I got in my car and closed the door, and nothing happened!"
    HELPLINE:"Did you put the key in the ignition slot and turn it?"
    CUSTOMER:"What's an ignition?"
    HELPLINE:"It's a starter motor that draws current from your battery and turns over the engine."
    CUSTOMER:"Ignition? Motor? Battery? Engine? How come I have to know all of these technical terms just to use my car?"

    Murphy Laws of Computing
    1. When computing, whatever happens, behave as though you meant it to happen.

    2. When you get to the point where you really understand your computer, it’s probably obsolete.

    3. The first place to look for information is in the section of the manual where you’d least expect to find it.

    4. When the going gets tough, upgrade.

    5. For every action, there is an equal and opposite malfunction.

    6. To err is human...to blame your computer for your mistakes is even more human, its downright natural.

    7. He who laughs last, probably has a back-up.

    8. The number one cause of computer problems is computer solutions.

    9. A complex system that doesn’t work is invariably found to have evolved from a simpler system that worked just fine.

    10. A computer program will always do what you tell it to do, but rarely what you want it to do.

    It should be: those who can count and those who can't
    But it isn't, it's "those who know binary and those who don't" :P
    That is the whole point: 10 written in binary = 2 written in decimal If you don't believe me check it out for yourself

    I know 10 is 2, that's the point... Only the geekiest of the geeky count:

    0000
    0001
    0010
    0011

    And of course, those of us who happen to study electrical engineering and have nightmares consisting of 1's, 0's, xor's, and all sorts of logical circuits

    9 X 128 = 1152; 1+1+5+2=9 and is true for all numbers times nine.

    I believe this property is called the Numerical Root.
