Crucial Question:

Did a man or woman say this?

Re: Crucial Question:

Actually it was from a web based show called Family - http://www.nwlive.tv/blog/family. It was said by an older woman, which is why the line stuck in my head so.

It's from the first episode all the way back in Sept of 08.

If a teen would have said it, I think I would have just let it flow in one ear and out the other...but an older woman saying it shows me the writers have a bit of depth to them.



Re: Crucial Question:

This goes back to that scene in _A Few Good Men_, where Nicholson is saying "You want the truth??" We don't want the truth - we want the world to match our fantasies of it. We bitch and moan about computers, and how hard they are to work with, because we don't mean what we say, and we don't say what we mean. Computers do *EXACTLY* what they're told to do - however, by now, programming has gotten so abstracted, that we have no idea what our computers have been told to do.

Maybe, just maybe, the human race will grow up. It's going to be a while, though, I suspect.
