Do not allow this language (Ada) in its present state to be used in
applications where reliability is critical, i.e., nuclear power stations,
cruise missiles, early warning systems, anti-ballistic missile defense
systems. The next rocket to go astray as a result of a programming language
error may not be an exploratory space rocket on a harmless trip to Venus:
It may be a nuclear warhead exploding over one of our cities. An unreliable
programming language generating unreliable programs constitutes a far
greater risk to our environment and to our society than unsafe cars, toxic
pesticides, or accidents at nuclear power stations.

How many nuclear engineers does it take to change a light bulb ?

Seven: One to install the new bulb, and six to determine what to do
with the old one for the next 10,000 years.

THE "FUN WITH USENET" MANIFESTO
Very little happens on Usenet without some sort of response from some other
reader. Fun With Usenet postings are no exception. Since there are some who
might question the rationale of some of the excerpts included therein, I have
written up a list of guidelines that sum up the philosophy behind these
postings.

One. I never cut out words in the middle of a quote without a VERY
good reason, and I never cut them out without including ellipses. For
instance, "I am not a goob" might become "I am ... a goob", but thats too
mundane to bother with. "Im flame proof" might (and has) become
"Im ...a... p...oof" but thats REALLY stretching it.

Two. If I cut words off the beginning or end of a quote, I dont
put ellipses, but neither do I capitalize something that wasnt capitalized
before the cut. "I dont think that the Church of Ubizmo is a wonderful
place" would turn into "the Church of Ubizmo is a wonderful place". Imagine
the posting as a tape-recording of the posters thoughts. If I can set
up the quote via fast-forwarding and stopping the tape, and without splicing,
I dont put ellipses in. And by the way, I love using this mechanism for
turning things around. If you think something stinks, say so - dont say you
dont think its wonderful. ...
