    Normal Topic 3: Girls or Programming?

    If you were locked in a house for three solid months(with food and water supply of course) and you were faced with a decision to either live with a computer(with a compiler in it) or a good looking girl your age. Which one would you pick and why?

    Girl,

    why? besides the obvious, im unattached and in need of love. BWAHAhaha. anywayz

    Coding's great and all but i would get pretty lonely and board after a while.

    im sure "We" could find something to do for 3 months.

    wow...that is really a hard question. One of the main factors I guess would be whether or not the computer had internet access or not, but I am guessing it does not.

    In the end I would pick to live with the girl for 3 months.

    Reasons:

    It would provide for social interaction. I could program for hours on the computer, but even with all that time, i doubt anything good would come out of it. I would probably work for a week...then be lazy for like 3 weeks...and do that kind of cycle...

    But with the girl, I could talk to her, laugh with her, do whatever. A girl would be another personality available to interact with.

    Now, granted, you might that computers have personalities that you can interact with too, a computer's personality always seems to be negative, makin you want to throw the monitor out the window, kill Microsoft, and vent your rage on that stupid acer cd rom drive that never works.

    And who knows...spending 3 months with a girl might lead to some benefits on down the road.

    Answer:
    Girl.

    Sidenotes:
    That would be horrible, in all honesty.
    (great reasoning DavidP)

    Reasoning:
    You'd be sitting on the computer, dreaming of human, and social interaction getting all emotional/touchy feely.
    That'd be like prison.

    The Girl:

    If I was stuck with a computer only for 3 months, the computer would be in 4,500,369 (approx.) pieces around 1/2 way through, but the girl and I would be havin fun the whole way through...

    Should there even be an alternate answer?

    My software never has bugs. It just develops random features.

    Try not.
    Do or do not.
    There is no try.
