At a recent Sacramento PC User's Group meeting, a company was
demonstrating its latest speech-recognition software.

A representative from the company was just about ready to start the
demonstration and asked everyone in the room to quiet down.

Just then someone in the back of the room yelled,

"Format C: Return."

Someone else chimed in: "Yes, Return"

Unfortunately, the software worked.


"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."
