One In Ten Americans Thinks HTML Is a Type of Sexually Transmitted Infection
quote:"It looks like technical writers won't be unemployed any time soon. According to a recent study reported on by the LA Times, 11% of Americans thought HTML was a sexually-transmitted disease. The study, by coupon site VoucherCloud, involved 2,392 men and women 18 years of age or older. 27% thought 'gigabyte' was a South American insect, and 23% thought MP3 was a Star Wars robot. The participants were not told that the study was specifically looking into their knowledge of tech terms. They were presented with both tech and non-tech terms and were asked to choose from three possible definitions. 18% identified 'Blu-ray' as a marine animal, and 15% thought 'software' was comfortable clothing."
Top prize goes to whichever EVC member comes up with an acronym for HTML to signify which venereal disease it might represent.
An Amish boy and his father were in a mall. They were amazed by almost everything they saw, but especially by two shiny, silver walls that could move apart and then slide back together again.
The boy asked, "what is this Father?"
The father (never having seen an elevator) responded, "Son, I have never seen anything like this in my life, I don't know what it is."
While the boy and his father were watching with amazement, a fat old lady in a scooter moved up to the moving walls and pressed a button. The walls opened and the lady rolled between them into a small room. The walls closed and the boy and his father watched the small circular numbers above the walls light up sequentially.
They continued to watch until it reached the last number and then the numbers began to light in the reverse order. Finally the walls opened up again and a gorgeous 24-year-old blonde stepped out.
The father said quietly to his son, "go and get your mother."
Now, if their reasoning was to protect your thoughts from Obama via the NSA from chem trail thought-reading molecules they would have had 20,000 sponsors and met their goal x200 by now. Poor venture capital planning.
Chem trail mind-bending is so 1960s. Give our government some credit. They are now using quantum-entanglement wave-guide depolarizing neural subspace amplifiers that they salvaged and reverse engineered from the crashed UFO in Roswell.
Hang on. Some guys in black suits just appeared at my door.........
