    Are you people using the right word? Don't you
    mean "Pastries?" If not, what's a pasty?

    Aren't pasties those things that 'exotic dancers'
    put over their boobies?

    Hehe - I don't know about that, but... A pasty's a sorta meat pie... The ones I get around here have rutabegas, carrots, beef, onions, and potatoes in it... It's served w/ gravy... great stuff...

    So they are like chicken pot pies, exept with beef instead of chicken?
    What will people say if they hear that I'm a Jesus freak?
    What will people do if they find that it's true?
    I don't really care if they label me a Jesus freak, there is no disguising the truth!

    A CRAY is the only computer that runs an endless loop
    in just 4 hours...
    That's great

    A rutabega's a type of vegetable... I'm sure someone can enlighten us with a picture (as I'm too lazy to look)

    OK..... Pop quiz. Anybody (uk residents excepted) know why they're that shape?

    The clue is they originate in Cornwall, which is famous for tin-mining.

    Why would anyone need supercomputers anyway?
    all they do is run the weather program below:

    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <time.h>
    #include <stdlib.h>
    
    int main(void)
    {
     int weather;
    
     sleep(1000000); /* to make it seem like it's calculating */
     srand(time(NULL));
     weather = rand() % 4;
     switch(weather)
     {
      case 1: printf("Rainy"); break;
      case 2: printf("Sunny"); break;
      case 3: printf("Cloudy"); break;
      default: printf("Windy"); break;
     }
     return 0;
    }

    Yup! Get out of here old man! People over 20 have no place here (a hush falls over the crowd as Govtcheez alienates all the smartest people on the board, and also rick)!

    Actually, I just don't know.
