French Computer

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 mansion."

"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 noun.

Both groups were required to give four reasons for their recommendation.

The men's group decided 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 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.

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 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 women won.

Lego Anatomical Model

Done By Giovanni Seynhaeve. I find this creation a very interesting take on the inner workings of the human brain and senses.

The 'ear man' sends signals to the brain on sounds heard.

The 'eye man' sends signals to the brain regarding images seen.

The 'Chef' resides in the mouth where food is made into smaller pieces.

Like this part where the creator says 'the tickle in the throat'.

The brain.

Neccessary Thing: Magnestick System for Ski Lifts

System prevents kids from potentially slipping down the ski lifts. A permanent magnet is attached to the seat of the ski lift. A back protector with a metal plate is worn by the child. The back protector only weighs 200g. The magnets on the seat is activated when the child gets on the seat. It deactivates when it reaches the top. Even if safety bar is lifted too early, magnet system prevents child from slipping of seat.
