A mechanical engineer, a middle manager and a programmer are
traveling through the mountains. They're coming down a steep hill
when both the engine and the brakes fail... they bring the car to a
stop with the help of the hand brake and get out to figure out what
they're going to do.

The manager says, "Let's form a committee to study the problem."

The engineer says, "I think I can fix this with my pocket knife and
a piece of wire..."

The programmer says, "Let's push it back up the hill and see if it
happens again..."


"The Recovery Channel, a start-up cable venture, will feature drug
addicts, alcoholics, and overeaters 24 hours a day. It is the logical
terminus for a culture in love with its own dysfunction."
