    That first one is awesome
    Until you can build a working general purpose reprogrammable computer out of basic components from radio shack, you are not fit to call yourself a programmer in my presence. This is cwhizard, signing off.

    The biblical quote is "the love of money is the root of all evil", so changing it to "money is the root of all problems" is a good way to get the intended point across.

    Personally, I'm a huge fan of good jokes, involving gender, religion, race and other funny concepts of categorization. I'm also pretty sure that women involved in technical activities (programming, engineering, math, ...) can either laugh about it or at least don't care. But making fun of women in a "scientific" way is still really bad, because it may prevent young girls to go for a scientific career. This is making me sad occasionally. I've been talking to lots of women who would have become great scientists but eventually didn't, because some idiot came up with a lame joke. This is of course not the only reason, but on the other hand there's no need to make it more difficult than it already is.

    I like this picture which has obviously been taken at someone's attic (garret? loft?):
    http://www.0xe3.com/pr0n/ergreift-technische-berufe.jpg

    The sign reads: "Women and girls! Boldly and bravely apply for technical jobs!"


    So, let me finish with my favorite sexist joke: "At the area where men think, women have a hole"

    Greets,

    I once told a joke, and someone didn't get it. Two weeks later, he mentioned that he himself had now been telling the joke three times since, and none of the people didn't understand it either.

    I don't know how you're supposed to understand a joke by telling it to other people, but maybe you're lucky.


    On a sidenote, I'm pretty sure that the sign on the picture above is from 1940 or '41, because afterwards, the typeface has been forbidden by the NSDAP: the typeface is called "Schwabacher", a common Jewish name. But in this case, it just points to the origin of the typeface, namely a town called "Schwabach". Funny nazis... Anyway, what I wanted to say is that the sign doesn't reflect the open-mindedness of Germany around that time, but rather indicates that by that time, most of the male workers were either at war or already dead.

    I find it quite pretty, myself - however, it's not very readable if you are not used to it.

    If you want a hard-to-read german typeface, try the Suetterlin Schrift.

    O - MY - GOD!
    That's barely more readable than the Wingdings font.

    So if you ask an engineer, who happens to be a woman, to explain women, what will you get?

    My wife could code circles around half the people here.
    Code:
    //try
    //{
    	if (a) do { f( b); } while(1);
    	else   do { f(!b); } while(1);
    //}
