Subj:     A Special Attribute of Women
          From: ginafm on 9/11/2008

 "Whatever you give a woman, she's going to multiply it. 
 If you give her a house, she'll give you a home.  If 
 you give her groceries, she'll give you a meal.  If you 
 give her a smile, she'll give you her heart.  She 
 multiplies and enlarges what is given to her.  So . . . 
 if you give her any crap, you will receive a ton of shit." 

 Love and appreciate all the women in your life.

Subj:     Couples 50th Anniversary
          From: CKButch4Femme on 9/11/2008 

 There was this couple who had been married for 50 years.  They 
 were sitting at the breakfast table that morning when the old 
 gentleman said to his wife, "Just think, honey, we've been 
 married for 50 years." 

 "Yeah," she replied, "Fifty years ago this very day, we were 
 sitting here at this breakfast table together." 

 "Hmmm," the old man said, "We were probably sitting here naked 
 as jaybirds fifty years ago this morning." 

 "Well," Granny snickered, "What do you say...should we?"  Where- 
 upon the two stripped to the buff and sat down at the table. 

 "You know, honey," the little old lady breathlessly replied, 
 "My nipples are as hot for you as they were fifty years ago." 

 "I wouldn't be surprised," replied Gramps.  "One's in your 
 coffee and the other one's in you oatmeal!"

Subj:     Computer Gender?
          From: RFSlick on 12/24/1999 
      and From: tom on 9/6/2008

 A language instructor was explaining to her class that French 
 nouns, unlike their English counterparts, are grammatically 
 designated as masculine or feminine.  Things like "chalk" or 
 "pencil," she described, would have a gender association 
 although in English, these words were neutral.  Puzzled, one 
 student raised his hand and asked, "What gender is a computer?" 
 The teacher wasn't certain which it was, and so divided the 
 class into two groups and asked them to decide if a computer 
 should be masculine, or feminine. One group was composed of 
 the women in the class, and the other, of men.  Both groups 
 were asked to give four reasons for their recommendation. 

 The group of women concluded that computers should be referred 
 to in the masculine gender because: 
 1. In order to get their attention, you have to turn them on. 
 2. They have a lot of data, but are still clueless. 
 3. They are supposed to help you solve your problems, but 
    half the time they ARE the problem. 
 4. As soon as you commit to one, you realize that, if you 
    had waited a little longer, you could have had a better 

 The men, on the other hand, decided that computers should 
 definitely be referred to in the feminine gender because: 
 1. No one but their creator understands their internal logic. 
 2. The native language they use to communicate with other 
    computers is incomprehensible to everyone else. 
 3. Even your smallest mistakes are stored in long-term 
    memory for later retrieval. 
 4. As soon as you make a commitment to one, you find 
    yourself spending half your paycheck on accessories for it.
