"His professor sent him an e-mail the following day:

Dear Michael,

Every year I attempt to boost my students’ final grades by giving them this relatively simple exam consisting of 100 True/False questions from only 3 chapters of material. For the past 20 years that I have taught Intro Communications 101 at this institution I have never once seen someone score below a 65 on this exam. Consequently, your score of a zero is the first in history and ultimately brought the entire class average down a whole 8 points.

There were two possible answer choices: A (True) and B (False). You chose C for all 100 questions in an obvious attempt to get lucky with a least a quarter of the answers. It’s as if you didn’t look at a single question. Unfortunately, this brings your final grade in this class to failing. See you next year!

May God have mercy on your soul.

Sincerely,
Professor William Turner

P.S. If all else fails, go with B from now on.
B is the new C"

http://www.thinkgeek.com/caffeine/ac...s/5a65/?cpg=ab

For those at work: Mornings Have Never Been So Invigorating!

Tired of waking up and having to wait for your morning java to brew? Are you one of those groggy early morning types that just needs that extra kick? Know any programmers who dont regularly bathe and need some special motivation? Introducing Shower Shock, the original and world's first caffeinated soap from ThinkGeek. When you think about it, ShowerShock is the ultimate clean buzz

It Works! Featured On...

* TechTV
* NBC
* MSNBC
* CNN
* Good Morning America
* Washington Post
* Ripley's Believe It Or Not
* Your Bathroom!

Shower Shock is an all vegetable based glycerine soap which does *not* contain any harsh ingredients like ethanol, diethanolamine, polyethylene glycol or cocyl isethionate. So it's a gently invigorating soap Scented with peppermint oil and infused with caffeine anhydrous, each bar of Shower shock contains approximately 12 servings/showers per 4 ounce bar with 200 milligrams of caffeine per serving. No, we're not kidding and no you don't eat it. Caffeine can be absorbed through the skin. For maximum effect, ThinkGeek recommends that you build up a good Shower Shock lather across your entire body before rinsing!

Have smelly co-workers that sleep in too much? Give them the gift of Shower Shock..

==

Someone must really have a caffeine addiction or a odd sense of humour to think of that one.

You would think the Microsoft Exchange Team would give some thought to their URL before using it.

These things are pretty common. They "find stuff wrong" and then sell you a product to "fix it." Scam-o-rama.

Works real well on a lot of scared windows lusers, though. We should make a site like this that then sends them to http://www.freebsd.org/ to get fixes, instead of trying to sell them some bogus product.

Yes, I remember getting a call from a boss at my old job--a user had called in a panic, because she'd gone to a web site and had the notice THERE MAY BE PORN ON YOUR COMPUTER. She was a very sweet grandmother working part time, so I explained why she shouldn't worry and also told her that she'd done the right thing calling us immediately rather than taking their suggestion to download their free software.

Anyone else, I probably would have answered, "Really? Well, aren't you going to share it with the rest of us?," but in this case, that would not have been appropriate.

Oh man, this will keep me up for a few hours...

I'd reckon a few people have seen this one before, but this is one of my favorite jokes ;-)

Something more about programming, you would want to check out this page for Esoteric programming languages. Especially the Zombie language and the Ook! language
