Journal richie2000's Journal: Dilbert's half 'n half 1

Today's Dilbert is a shining example of humor at its best. It may take the average reader a little while to realize precisely why it only takes Dilbert half a second to setup and run the simulation, but it's time very well spent. The only gripe I have with it is the 50% number, but I realize the gag won't work without it, so I forgive him.

There's a similar joke in Sweden that goes like this:

- How many people work at the (insert name of whatever governmental body or company you (dis)like) office?
- About half of them.

  • And near as I can tell, in the agency I work for, that's completely accurate. The problem is, some of those are half people- they work if allowed to, and spend the rest of their day talking on slashdot because they don't have the security access needed to do what is asked of them.

Nondeterminism means never having to say you are wrong.
