    / *** STUDENT SUCCESSES *** \
    | |
    | Many of our students have gone on to |
    | achieve great success in all fields of |
    | programming. One former student |
    | developed the concept of the |
    | personalized form letter. Does the |
    | phrase, "Dear Mr.(insert name), You may |
    | already be a winner!," sound familiar? |
    | Another student writes "After only five |
    | lessons I sold a "My Most Unforgettable |
    | Program" article to Corrosive Computing |
    | magazine. Another of our graduates |
    | writes, "I recently completed a |
    | database-management program for my |
    | department manager. My program touched |
    | him so deeply that he was speechless. |
    | He told me later that he had never seen |
    | such a program in his entire career. |
    | Thank you, Famous Programmers' school; |
    | only you could have made this |
    | possible." Send for our introductory |
    | brochure which explains in vague detail |
    | the operation of the Famous |
    | Programmers' School, and you'll be |
    | eligible to win a possible chance to |
    | enter a drawing, the winner of which |
    | can vie for a set of free steak knives. |

    / The Least Perceptive Literary Critic \
    | |
    | The most important critic in our field |
    | of study is Lord Halifax. A most |
    | individual judge of poetry, he once |
    | invited Alexander Pope round to give a |
    | public reading of his latest poem. |
    | |
    | Pope, the leading poet of his day, was |
    | greatly surprised when Lord Halifax |
    | stopped him four or five times and |
    | said, "I beg your pardon, Mr. Pope, but |
    | there is something in that passage that |
    | does not quite please me." |
    | |
    | Pope was rendered speechless, as this |
    | fine critic suggested sizeable and |
    | unwise emendations to his latest |
    | masterpiece. "Be so good as to mark the |
    | place and consider at your leisure. I'm |
    | sure you can give it a better turn." |
    | |
    | After the reading, a good friend of |
    | Lord Halifax, a certain Dr. Garth, took |
    | the stunned Pope to one side. "There is |
    | no need to touch the lines," he said. |
    | "All you need do is leave them just as |
    | they are, call on Lord Halifax two or |
    | three months hence, thank him for his |
    | kind observation on those passages, and |
    | then read them to him as altered. I |
    | have known him much longer than you |
    | have, and will be answerable for the |
    | event." |
    | |
    | Pope took his advice, called on Lord |
    | Halifax and read the poem exactly as it |
    | was before. His unique critical |
    | faculties had lost none of their edge. |
    | "Ay", he commented, "now they are |
    | perfectly right. Nothing can be |
    | better." |
    | |

    | In August 1975 three men were on their |
    | way in to rob the Royal Bank of |
    | Scotland at Rothesay, when they got |
    | stuck in the revolving doors. They had |
    | to be helped free by the staff and, |
    | after thanking everyone, sheepishly |
    | left the building. |
    | |
    | A few minutes later they returned and |
    | announced their intention of robbing |
    | the bank, but none of the staff |
    | believed them. When they demanded 5,000 |
    | pounds in cash, the head cashier |
    | laughed at them, convinced that it was |
    | a practical joke. |
    | |
    | Then one of the men jumped over the |
    | counter, but fell to the floor |
    | clutching his ankle. The other two |
    | tried to make their getaway, but got |
    \ trapped in the revolving doors again. /

    / I suppose some of the variation between \

    | Massachusetts Driver Education Manual |
    | which I happen to have in my top desk |
    | drawer. Some of the Tips for Better |
    | Driving are worth considering, to wit: |
    | |
    | [173.15b]: |
    | |
    | "When competing for a section of road |
    | or a parking space, remember |
    | |
    | that the vehicle in need of the most |
    | body work has the right-of-way." |
    | |
    | [141.2a]: |
    | |
    | "Although it is altogether possible to |
    | fit a 6' car into a 6' |
    | |
    | parking space, it is hardly ever |
    | possible to fit a 6' car into |
    | |
    | a 5' parking space." |
    | |
    | [105.31]: |
    | |
    | "Teenage drivers believe that they are |
    | immortal, and drive accordingly. |
    | |
    | Nevertheless, you should avoid the |
    \ temptation to prove them wrong." /

    / Once upon a time there was a beautiful \
    | young girl taking a stroll through the |
    | woods. All at once she saw an extremely |
    | ugly bull frog seated on a log and to |
    | her amazement the frog spoke to her. |
    | "Maiden," croaked the frog, "would you |
    | do me a favor? This will be hard for |
    | you to believe, but I was once a |
    | handsome, charming prince and then a |
    | mean, ugly old witch cast a spell over |
    | me and turned me into a frog." |
    | |
    | "Oh, what a pity!", exclaimed the girl. |
    | "I'll do anything I can to help you |
    | break such a spell." |
    | |
    | "Well," replied the frog, "the only way |
    | that this spell can be taken away is |
    | for some lovely young woman to take me |
    | home and let me spend the night under |
    | her pillow." |
    | |
    | The young girl took the ugly frog home |
    | and placed him beneath her pillow that |
    | night when she retired. When she awoke |
    | the next morning, sure enough, there |
    | beside her in bed was a very young, |
    | handsome man, clearly of royal blood. |

    / A serious public debate about the \
    | validity of astrology? A serious |
    | believer in the White House? Two of |
    | them? Give me a break. What stifled my |
    | laughter is that the image fits. Reagan |
    | has always exhibited a fey indifference |
    | toward science. Facts, like numbers, |
    | roll off his back. And we've all come |
    | to accept it. This time it was |
    | stargazing that became a serious |
    | issue....Not that long ago, it was |
    | Reagan's support of |
    | Creationism....Creationists actually |
    | got equal time with evolutionists. The |
    | public was supposed to be open-minded |
    | to the claims of paleontologists and |
    | fundamentalists, as if the two were |
    | scientific colleagues....It has been |
    | clear for a long time that the |
    | president is averse to science...In |
    | general, these attitudes fall onto |
    | friendly American turf....But at the |
    | outer edges, this skepticism about |
    | science easily turns into a kind of |
    | naive acceptance of nonscience, or even |
    | nonsense. The same people who doubt |
    | experts can also believe any quackery, |
    | from the benefits of laetrile to eye of |
    | newt to the movement of planets. We |
    | lose the capacity to make rational -- |
    | scientific -- judgments. It's all the |
    | same. -- Ellen Goodman, The Boston |

    / AmigaDOS Beer: The company has gone out \

    | so now this beer will be an import. |
    | This beer never really sold very well |
    | because the original manufacturer |
    | didn't understand marketing. Like Unix |
    | Beer, AmigaDOS Beer fans are an |
    | extremely loyal and loud group. It |
    | originally came in a 16-oz. can, but |
    | now comes in 32-oz. cans too. When this |
    | can was originally introduced, it |
    | appeared flashy and colorful, but the |
    | design hasn't changed much over the |
    | years, so it appears dated now. Critics |
    | of this beer claim that it is only |
    \ meant for watching TV anyway. /

    | (a) Don't kill anybody. |

    / VII. Certain bodies can pass through \
    | solid walls painted to resemble tunnel |
    | |
    | entrances; others cannot. |
    | |
    | This trompe l'oeil inconsistency has |
    | baffled generations, but at least |
    | |
    | it is known that whoever paints an |
    | entrance on a wall's surface to |
    | |
    | trick an opponent will be unable to |
    | pursue him into this theoretical |
    | |
    | space. The painter is flattened against |
    | the wall when he attempts to |
    | |
    | follow into the painting. This is |
    | ultimately a problem of art, not |
    | |
    | of science. VIII. Any violent |
    | rearrangement of feline matter is |
    | impermanent. |
    | |
    | Cartoon cats possess even more deaths |
    | than the traditional nine lives |
    | |
    | might comfortably afford. They can be |
    | decimated, spliced, splayed, |
    | |
    | accordion-pleated, spindled, or |
    | disassembled, but they cannot be |
    | |
    | destroyed. After a few moments of |
    | blinking self pity, they reinflate, |
    | |
    | elongate, snap back, or solidify. |
    | |
    | IX. For every vengeance there is an |
    | equal and opposite revengeance. |
    | |
    | This is the one law of animated cartoon |
    | motion that also applies to |
    | |
    | the physical world at large. For that |
    | reason, we need the relief of |
    | |
    | watching it happen to a duck instead. |
    | |
    | X. Everything falls faster than an |
    | anvil. |
    | |
    | Examples too numerous to mention from |
    | the Roadrunner cartoons. |
    | |

    \ Cartoon Motion", June 1980 /

    / The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy \
    | has a few things to say on the subject |
    | of towels. |
    | |
    | Most importantly, a towel has immense |
    | psychological value. For some reason, |
    | if a non-hitchhiker discovers that a |
    | hitchhiker has his towel with him, he |
    | will automatically assume that he is |
    | also in possession of a toothbrush, |
    | washcloth, flask, gnat spray, space |
    | suit, etc., etc. Furthermore, the |
    | non-hitchhiker will then happily lend |
    | the hitchhiker any of these or a dozen |
    | other items that he may have "lost". |
    | After all, any man who can hitch the |
    | length and breadth of the Galaxy, |
    | struggle against terrible odds, win |
    | through and still know where his towel |
    | is, is clearly a man to be reckoned |
    | with. |

    / Following \
    | |
    | When the great man learns the Way, he |
    | follows it with diligence; When the |
    | common man learns the Way, he follows |
    | it on occasion; When the mean man |
    | learns the Way, he laughs out loud; |
    | Those who do not laugh, do not learn at |
    | all. Therefore it is said: Who |
    | understands the Way seems foolish; Who |
    | progresses on the Way seems to fail; |
    | Who follows the Way seems to wander. |
    | For the finest harmony appears plain; |
    | The brightest truth appears coloured; |
    | The richest character appears |
    | incomplete; The bravest heart appears |
    | meek; The simplest nature appears |
    | inconstant. The square, perfected, has |
    | no corner; Music, perfected, has no |
    | melody; Love, perfected, has no climax; |
    | Art, perfected, has no meaning. The Way |

    | transmits sensation and transcends |

    / When alerted to an intrusion by \
    | tinkling glass or otherwise, 1) Calm |
    | yourself 2) Identify the intruder 3) If |
    | hostile, kill him. |
    | |
    | Step number 3 is of particular |
    | importance. If you leave the guy alive |
    | out of misguided softheartedness, he |
    | will repay your generosity of spirit by |
    | suing you for causing his subsequent |
    | paraplegia and seek to force you to |
    | support him for the rest of his rotten |
    | life. In court he will plead that he |
    | was depressed because society had |
    | failed him, and that he was looking for |
    | Mother Teresa for comfort and to offer |
    | his services to the poor. In that |
    | lawsuit, you will lose. If, on the |
    | other hand, you kill him, the most that |
    | you can expect is that a relative will |
    | bring a wrongful death action. You will |
    | have two advantages: first, there be |
    | only your story; forget Mother Teresa. |
    | Second, even if you lose, how much |
    | could the bum's life be worth anyway? A |
    | Lot less than 50 years worth of |
    | paralysis. Don't play George Bush and |

    / "Speak, thou vast and venerable head," \

    | ungarnished with a beard, yet here and |
    | there lookest hoary with mosses; speak, |
    | mighty head, and tell us the secret |
    | thing that is in thee. Of all divers, |
    | thou has dived the deepest. That head |
    | upon which the upper sun now gleams has |
    | moved amid the world's foundations. |
    | Where unrecorded names and navies rust, |
    | and untold hopes and anchors rot; where |
    | in her murderous hold this frigate |
    | earth is ballasted with bones of |
    | millions of the drowned; there, in that |
    | awful water-land, there was thy most |
    | familiar home. Thou hast been where |
    | bell or diver never went; has slept by |
    | many a sailer's side, where sleepless |
    | mothers would give their lives to lay |
    | them down. Thou saw'st the locked |
    | lovers when leaping from their flaming |
    | ship; heart to heart they sank beneath |
    | the exulting wave; true to each other, |
    | when heaven seemed false to them. Thou |
    | saw'st the murdered mate when tossed by |
    | pirates from the midnight deck; for |
    | hours he fell into the deeper midnight |
    | of the insatiate maw; and his murderers |
    | still sailed on unharmed -- while swift |
    | lightnings shivered the neighboring |
    | ship that would have borne a righteous |
    | husband to outstretched, longing arms. |
    | O head! thou has seen enough to split |
    | the planets and make an infidel of |
    | Abraham, and not one syllable is |
    | thine!" |
