Our wonderful technology

 

It does it automatically, what a load of ****

It does it automatically; he’s what we think of it

It tries to second guess you, and always gets it wrong

We’re fed up to our back teeth, that’s why we sing this song

 

Bought myself a nice new car, as happy as a clown

Till I got up in the morning, found all the windows down

 

Night time in my garden, so took myself a torch

It started flashing ‘colonel bogey’ so slung it on the porch.

 

Speed cameras everywhere, growing by the score

Sixty quid fine through the post, and only doing thirty four

 

All decisions made for us, transistors in a link

But to mankind the greatest loss, the ability to think

 

The people who dream up this stuff, from ourselves they want to save

So technology becomes our master, and us its humble slave

 


 

 

Reading tealeaves for the future

A chap I knew bought a digital camera, every photo he took had the date and time printed across it. He had tried everything to get rid of it, I tried settings and everything I could see, to no avail. He had it back and threw it up the wall.

It looks Chinese to me


 

This joke was posted to a website:

 

 

Man sends a text to his next-door neighbour:

“Dave, I’m sorry. I’ve been riddled with guilt for months and I have to confess something to you. Dave, I have been helping myself to your wife when you're out at work..... I know it’s no excuse but I don’t get it at home.
I can’t live with the guilt and shame any longer. I hope you’ll accept my sincerest apologies. I promise it won’t happen again.”

Feeling outraged and betrayed, Dave grabs his shotgun, goes into the bedroom, and without a word, shoots his wife.

Moments later Dave gets a second text:

“I really should use spell check! That should be ‘wifi’.”

 

 

 

Although its only a joke its worth thinking about.

I used to jest that WW3 would be started by a keyboard error.

 


 

 

I can remember the days when whatever you bought all it did was work

 


 

I came to use a computer that had stood for ages and found it would not hold the BIOS settings, date, time etc. Obviously CMOS battery gone, popped in another. Still the same.

 

Started thinking about a new motherboard, but then again, could be duff battery.

 

Took it out, and there on the back was a little label telling you it was dangerous to swallow it.

Whoever thought of this crap aught to have it stuck up their arse.

 


Some questions answered

 

Following the recent terrorist attacks it comes to light that some of the culprits were reported to the anti terror hotline some time ago, yet nothing was done. Why?

 

Easy, when the call was made they were either talking to an Indian call centre or a machine.

 


 

I know for a fact that some of my confidential tax information was sent to the wrong address after the system was updated.
