When life becomes good for a programmer

A young Programmer and his Project Manager board a train headed through the mountains on its way to Wichita. They can find no place to sit except for two seats right across the aisle from a young woman and her grandmother. After a while, it is obvious that the young woman and the young programmer are interested in each other, because they are giving each other looks.

FUN: way of thinking

In Theory, theory and practice are the same…In practice, they are not.

Theory is when you know something, but it doesn't work.
