    7. It is easier to write an incorrect program than understand a correct one.
    40. There are two ways to write error-free programs; only the third one works.*

    I got two cats, named Jules and Vincent (after the two characters played by Samuel L. Jackson and John Travolta in Pulp Fiction). One is all black and the other is black/grey/white. When I got them I was told they were males, but it turns out they were both females.

    I used to think cats were ok, but then I met my friend's kitten, which would only scratch or bite you if you tried to pet it. That and being allergic to them, actually.

    Is that a beagle or am I way off? I've had friends with Pinchers before, and they're cool dogs if they've been treated good, and I like the look of white Shepards, but not the wolf-looking Shepards. For some reason though when it comes time to get a dog I'm looking at Beagle, Retriever and/or Black Lab.

    I have a pet rock. I talk to it a lot, pet its smooth head and take it for walks. Can't I vote for that?

    I have a cat, but I'd rather have a dog.

    I like cats, always had them.

    However, I someday want to get a dog that is really cute when its young but grows up to be a mankiller. Something I can wrestle with.
    See you in 13
