Cute joke

1017 posts in this topic

this probably was already here on the board.....but i put it here anyway:

Open "Word" and type Q33 NY

Enlarge to letter type 72, convert to Windings (1) and see what happens.

Bizar, not really, some jokers who work for Microsoft....probably.

Considering that the font Wingdings has been around (unchanged) since at least 1992, any 'coincidence' is purely that.

See the Snopes page on this for more info.

It also explains that turning 'NYC' into the Webdings font does produce a combination of symbols that was chosen on purpose. The symbols that appear for any recognizable 'phrase' in Wingdings are pure luck. MS didn't map Wingdings out for any purpose.

Oh, and you forgot to mention the (incorrect) linking of "Q33 NY" to any actual numbers related to 9/11. (Some sites claim that it was one of the flight or plane numbers (it wasn't,) or attempting to link it to a NYC bus line or a part of the Qu'ran.)

Oh, and the only reason to increase the size to 72 is to make the symbols large for 'shock value' when it turns into a 'bad thing'.

I like the game in your post 1002, though. Good one to send to my more easily startled friends. (Better not send it to my wife when she's at work, she'll hit me when she gets home. She doesn't like that kind of surprise.)

Ehurtley, i did not invent this, nor found this. It was sent to me by a friend.

I get a "shitload" of jokes, mostly clips of any kind.

As for the Q33NY, i do not believe this is coincidence.

heh. The striptease is good. I know someone that would like that. (I also get a bunch of jokes daily from various sources.)

Sorry to bring up the 'Q33NY' thing again, but unless the person who created the Wingdings font was partly responsible for the events of 9/11, it has to be a coincidence.

Geek humor... My co-workers at MS used to hate me for ending the song this way.

1 bottle of beer on the wall, 1 bottle of beer, you take 1 down, pass it around, 0 bottles of beer on the wall.

0 bottles of beer on the wall, 0 bottles of beer, you take 1 down, pass it around, 4294967295 bottles of beer on the wall.

Reminds me of the time I was playing Tetris (the MS version from their game pack), and had a score of about -102. (They used a 16bit signed value for the score, get over 32768 and your score starts back at -32767).

God gave to Adam

God says to Adam, "I have some good news and some bad news. What do you want to hear first?"

Adam says, "Tell me the good news first."

God says, "I'm going to give you a penis and a brain. You'll derive from these great pleasure and great intellect."

Adam replies, "Wonderful! But what's the bad news?"

God says, "I'm only going to give you enough blood supply to work one at a time."

What can I say, for a first time on the forum.......omg!! LOL!

Two blokes talking in a pub, one says to the other "how long does a chicken last in the freezer?" His mate says "about 6 months."

"That's funny" says his mate "I put one in there last night and it was dead this morning?"

All those are quite funny..

Here some from me...

The Less You Know, The More You Make

"Salary Theorem" states that "Engineers and Scientists can never earn as much as Business Executives and Sales People."

This theorem can now be supported by a mathematical equation based on the following two postulates:

1. Knowledge is Power.

2. Time is Money.

As every engineer knows:

Power = Work / Time

Since:

Knowledge = Power

Time = Money

It follows that:

Knowledge = Work/Money.

Solving for Money, we get:

Money = Work / Knowledge.

Thus, as Knowledge approaches zero, Money approaches infinity, regardless of the amount of work done.

Conclusion:

The less you know,the more you make.
