    Q. How many Lunatics does it take to change a light bulb?

    A. Two, one to change the light bulb and the other to tell him to make sure he sticks his fingers in the socket first, to see if the electricity is switched on.

    Q: How many Bill Gates' does it take to change a light bulb?
    A: One. He puts the bulb in and lets the world revolve around him.


    Q: How many Microsoft executives does it take to change a light bulb?
    A: We can see no need for uninstallation and have therefore made no provision for light bulbs to be removed.


    Q: How many MicroSoft tech support people dies it take to change a light bulb?
    A: We have an exact copy of the light bulb here, and it seems to be working fine. Can you tell me what kind of system you have? Okay. Now exactly how dark is it? Okay, there could be 4 or 5 things wrong...have you tried the light switch?


    Q: How many MicroSoft technicians does it take to change a light bulb?
    A: Three. Two to hold the ladder and one to hammer the bulb into a faucet.


    Q: How many MicroSoft vice presidents does it take to change a light bulb?
    A: Eight. One to work the bulb, and seven to make sure that MicroSoft gets $2 for every light bulb ever changed anywhere in the world.


    Q: How many MicroSoft testers does it take to change a light bulb?
    A: We just determine that the room is dark; we don't actually change the bulb. Since we have a dead-bulb result on file from a previous test, rest assured that Development is working on a bug fix.


    Q: How many MicroSoft shipping department personnel does it take to change a light bulb?
    A: We can change the bulb in 7 to 10 working days. If you call before 2 PM, and pay an extra $15, we can get the bulb changed overnight. Don't forget to put your name in the upper right hand corner of the light bulb box.


    Q: How many Windows users does it take to change a light bulb?
    A: One. But they'll swear up and down that it was JUST as easy as it would be for a Mac user.


    Q: How many MicroSoft managers does it take to change a light bulb?
    A: We've formed a task force to study the problem of why light bulbs burn out, and to determine what, exactly, we as supervisors can do to make the bulbs work smarter, not harder.


    Q: How many MicroSoft engineers does it take to change a light bulb?
    A: None. Bill Gates will just redefine Darkness(TM) as the new industry standard.

    Alas poor lightbulb, that glows no more.
    Its filament broken, split assunder.
    To change it over, is such a chore.
    But it must be done, or I'll step in the gesunder.....

One can take from this symbiant harmony an uplifting thrust.. a Zeitgeist as it were, of thought flowing to thought, realities blending to create, as Socrates first expunged, the idea of perfection of the banishment of darkness by light. But as Plato, and after him Kant and Hill have postulated, how can perfection be measured if not by imperfection. The act of the light renders it usless in its use, for with light there is no dark to dispell, no waters of shadow to wash from the shores of vision. If this be the case, do we find ourselves struck with a dichotomy of pure brilliance? To replace that which no longer is perfect, and thus to make perfection real and whole, we must first destroy our measure of the very perfection we wish to attain. Like Edmonton, we are left bereft and wandering, like Ariadne, the thread has pulled from our clutching fingers of hope.... and we must carry on banging our shins on the coffee table until dawn.

    Adieu.

    btw, Shaito, what'd you do this weekend?
    Jeez, what the HELL had I been drinking?
