    Lies Computer Science Students Tell Themselves
    11. I'm almost done with this project.
    10. I don't need to know this. I'll never have to debug Fortran code.
    9. I don't care if Microsoft offers me a million bucks I'll never work for them.
    8. I'm so glad we're learning cutting-edge technology that I'll be able to apply as soon as I graduate.
    7. When I get out of here I'll be able to influence corporate IT decision making.
    6. The stagnation of the IT industry is merely temporary.
    5. With all the tinkering I've done on PCs, these classes are going to be CAKE!
    4. The massive network of friends I've developed on ICQ is really going to come in handy when I start looking for work.
    3. My ray tracer will revolutionize the gaming industry.
    2. Working in a cubicle is a healthy and rewarding working environment.
    1. I'll go party after I finish this perl script.

    I found it funny. Let me know what you think.

    I don't understand why every time someone posts a joke people are all "that wasn't funny har har har I'm so sophisticated". I personally found it funny (altough I hope its not true).


    (This is not a dig on Confuted, I read through alot of his/her posts and he/she good stuff to say. Just a general disgruntalization)

    true...... so true... unfortunately!

    reminds me of an engineering one, the one about how you know you're an engineer if you've used every function on your graphing calculator, and also... that you've ever tried to repair a 5 dollar radio. hehe...
