Shiny Apple

I was sweating, a little.  I walked into make a big presentation, plugged in the Macbook Pro to the projector and the screen flickered like a filtered cinemax channel, I could barely see my presentation (much like I could barely see the soft porn on the filtered cinemax). Ugh, the projector was zapped my head was pumping, sweat glistening, and I was working on v10 of my resume in my mind. Fortunately, I brought another projector, which is why I make the big bucks. I plugged it in and it was better but not perfect. The presentation went on, and everything was okay.

I tell this joke once a week, which describes too much about my life. A chemist, an electrical engineer, and a software engineer are riding in a car together. All of a sudden and without any apparent explanation, the car comes to a stop. The electrical engineer says, “There must be a problem with the electronics,” and starts to open up the fuse panel. The chemist says, “No, no, there must be a problem with the fuel line.” At this point, the software engineer starts to get out of the car. “Where are you going?” ask the other two. The software engineer gives them a puzzled look and says, “Well, all we have to do is get out and get back in.”
