Mom's speak a much lower level language, with our own, unique syntax.

Your logic does not apply!

I'm a mom who programs and I have kids that don't. Insane miscommunication abounds!

Well OBVIOUSLY!

I can just see the programmer checking to see if they had eggs before making the decision on how much milk to buy...

Have you heard the one about the sick chemist? If you can't helium, and you can't curium, you'll probably have to barium.

An electrical, a mechanical and a computer engineer are sitting in a car that does not want to start and they argue on what to do. The electrical engineer suggests that they clean the battery terminals and the mechanical engineer wants to check the spark plugs. Then the computer engineer suggests that they should all get out of the car, get back in and try to start the car again!

Or one of my dad's favourites:

"Did you hear about the constipated mathematician....

..... he worked it out with a pencil."

Unfortunately I seem to have turned into my father and now tell this one to my maths classes.

My son and I have been playing with infinite series, using imaginary cookies in a cut-it-in-half and share-it-out exercise. So if, say, you have two cookies and share them with three people, you cut the two cookies in half, give one half to each person, and have a half left over. Then you cut the half-cookie in half and have two half-half-cookies, which isn't enough to share, so you cut the half-halfs in half, and so on ad infinitum. It makes a pattern, and the pattern varies according to the number of cookies you start off with and how many people want a share. Of course, your cookies end up kinda disintegrated. Or is that differentiated...

The page we were working on had a basic program to illustrate the pattern formation. It looked like this...

10 c=0
20 INPUT T
30 INPUT B
40 PRINT INT(T/B);
50 n = T - B*INT(T/B)
60 n = n*2
70 c = c + 1
80 IF c>10 THEN STOP
90 IF n>B THEN GOTO 110
100 n<=B THEN GOTO 150
110 x = 1
120 PRINT x;
130 n = n - B
140 GOTO 60
150 x = 0
160 PRINT x;
170 GOTO 60
180 end

I'm a bit allergic to code, so I got him to talk me through it.

"What does that T and B stand for?" I asked, innocently.

"Total Biscuit!" He answered, without a moment's hesitation.

Bloody smart-arse...

A neutron walks into a bar and asks the bartender "How much for a drink?"
The bartender replies, "For you, No Charge."

The optimist sees the glass half full, The pessimist sees the glass as half empty, The engineer sees the glass as twice as big as it needs to be.

The opportunist sees the glass, drinks it and says "Thankyou very much. That was delicious."

I answer the question "The glass is full. Half full of liquid, half full of air."

A new monk shows up at a monastery where the monks spend their time making copies of ancient books. The new monk goes to the basement of the monastery saying he wants to make copies of the originals rather than of others' copies so as to avoid duplicating errors they might have made. Several hours later the monks, wondering where their new friend is, find him crying in the basement. They ask him what is wrong and he says "the word is CELEBRATE, not CELIBATE!"
