Geeks vs Half a Glass

Everyone knows the "half a glass" test. You show a half glass to someone and ask them to describe it. The optimist will say the glass is half full, the pessimist will say that the glass is half empty.

Somebody decided to run the test with a half glass of milk in an IT company....

Pascal programmers: Well, what type of milk is it?
C Programmers: No thanks; I drink straight from the jug.
Assembly programmers: No thanks; I drink straight from the cow.
Fuzzy logic guys: I may or may not have drunk some part of that milk.
Prolog programmers: I know I drank it - just don't ask me how.
Pentium users: I drank Glass * .49999999 . . . but don't hold me to that.
Windows users: Where's my straw?
Shareware game author: That glass is free; the next one you have to pay for.
Security consultant: Where'd the rest of the milk go?
Process Reengineer: Looks like you've got twice as much glass as you need there.
