    *Top Ten Specs For The New Gates Child

    Just a little online humor as taken from the weekly dispatch of c/net..... pretty good site if you're interested.... www.cnet.com

    A hearty congratulations to Microsoft Chair Bill Gates on the recent addition to his nuclear family. Last Friday, Bill's wife, Melinda French Gates, gave birth to 8-pound, 6-ounce Jennifer Gates at Overlake Hospital in Bellevue, Washington. Mother and daughter were both reported to be doing well.

    Of course, a lot of planning goes into a new child--as evidenced by this scrap of paper faxed to us by an anonymous medical technician at Overlake Hospital:

    Top ten specs for the new Gates child:

    10. Two hours between recharges
    9. Infinite capacity removable storage
    8. EnergyStar shutdown (nonprogrammable)
    7. SCSI port

    *WHIMSY RAMPANT IN `TV NATION' POLL

    Dayton Daily News - 10/23/95

    • Sixteen percent of all Americans believe that the world is out to get them. Of those, 46 percent own guns.

      That's one of the findings of a poll by Widgery and Associates for Michael Moore's whimsical but biting TV show TV Nation, which was canceled by Fox. It had been a summer show on NBC.

      Questions were asked of more than 200 people by telephone, in the years 1993 to 1995. The margin of error is plus or minus 9 percent.

      The results of the poll are circulating on the Internet. Some of the findings:

    • Twelve percent of those polled said they think the success of actor David Hasselhoff, star of Baywatch, is due at least in part to "dealings with the devil."
    • Seventy percent of American women polled said they have never had an emotionally satisfying relationship with a Republican.
    • Of Americans who voted for President Clinton, 12.5 percent believe that someday they will be told "just what Victoria's Secret is." Of Bush voters, 98 percent believe that they will never know.
    • Fourteen percent of Americans surveyed agreed that Puerto Rico should not be the 51st state because "that extra star would make the flag look bad."
    • Of those who voted Republican in the last election, 14 percent thought Forrest Gump was a documentary.
    • More Americans say they would rather spend time in a jacuzzi with Dan Rather than Tom Brokaw.
    • Sixty percent say that, if they could push a button that would make Larry King disappear, they would keep pushing it and not stop.
    • Twenty-nine percent of those surveyed think that the guy who first put the "great" in front of "Britain" probably meant it as a joke.
    • Forty-two percent of Americans feel that Kato Kaelin should be a passenger in the next space shuttle, whether he wants to go or not.

    * Job Talk: Secret labor code in classified ads, cover letters and resumes

    We're all fluent in this modern language. It's what we use when we want to exaggerate a little bit on our resumes or applications. It's also what we adopt when we're looking for a new person to join our company -- or not. Here's one interpretation of this secret labor code that appears in classified ads, cover letters, and resumes:

    EMPLOYER TALK

    • "ENTRY-LEVEL POSITION:" You'll be making under $7 an hour.
    • "ENTRY-LEVEL POSITION IN AN UP-AND-COMING COMPANY:" You'll be making under $7 an hour; we'll be bankrupt in a year.
    • "AN UP-AND-COMING SOFTWARE COMPANY:" We want you to get your hopes up, but there's no chance in hell we'll be the next Microsoft.

    • "COMPETITIVE SALARY:" We remain competitive by paying less than our competitors.
    • "JOIN OUR FAST-PACED COMPANY:" We have no time to train you; you'll have to introduce yourself to your coworkers.
    • "NATIONALLY RECOGNIZED LEADER:" Inc. Magazine wrote us up a few years ago, but we haven't done anything innovative since.
    • "IMMEDIATE OPENING:" The person who used to have this job gave notice a month ago. We're just now running the ad.

    • "WE OFFER GREAT BENEFITS:" After 90 days, you can join our HMO, which has a $500 deductible and a $25 co-pay.
    • "PENSION/RETIREMENT BENEFITS:" After 3 years, we'll allow you to fund your own 401(k) and, if you behave, we'll give you a 5 percent matching contribution.
    • "SEEKING ENTHUSIASTIC, FUN, HARD WORKING, PEOPLE:"...who still live with their parents and won't mind our internship-level salaries.
    • "CASUAL WORK ATMOSPHERE:" We don't pay enough to expect that you'll dress up; well, a couple of the real daring guys wear earrings.

    • "COLLEGE DEGREE PREFERRED:" Unless you wasted those four years studying something useless like philosophy, English or religion.
    • "NO PHONE CALLS PLEASE:" We've filled the job; our call for resumes is just a legal formality.
    • "SEEKING CANDIDATES WITH A WIDE VARIETY OF EXPERIENCE:" You'll need it to replace three people who just left.

    Some Lawyer Jokes

    The devil visited a young lawyer's office and made him an offer: "I can arrange some things for you," the devil said. "I'll increase your income fivefold. Your partners will love you; your clients will respect you; you'll have 4 months of vacation each year and live to be a hundred. All I require in return is that your wife's soul, and your children's souls and their children's souls must rot in hell for eternity." The lawyer thought for a moment and said, "What's the catch?"

    A lawyer, a used car salesman and a banker were gathered by a coffin containing the body of an old friend. In his grief, one of the three said, "In my family, we have a custom of giving the dead some money, so they'll have something to spend over there." They all agreed that this was appropriate. The banker dropped a $100 bill into the casket and the car salesman did the same. The lawyer took out the bills and wrote a check for $300.
