Why do sheep not shrink in the rain?
Why do male programmers treat female programmers as inferior?
Why does clue not stick to the top of the tube?

1. They do. But everything else does too.
2. Programmers aren't the best talkers. You are obviously mixing this up with their stumbling advances
3a. I didn't know you can get clue's in tubes?
3b. It does get stuck. It's the rest of the tube that doesn't.

1) The wool is not treated yet, and does not succum to shrinking.

2) The general public is racist, sexist and homophobic. I blame religion.

3) The glue sticks due to drying air in the atmosphere. There's not much air inside the tube, but if there is, it would take more, like, a 10th of a room perhaps.

Sorry to spoil your fun, but there you go.

2) I don't, but then i do not know many female programmers.

BTW if there were too many female programmers they would spend too much time cleaning up their code that they forget to finnish the app.

the only problem i have with most female coder is they oftenly just give up before getting to the mainstream level, however the ones who do make it - damn they're keepers ... its like a Japanese 3D Artist, once you grab one you DON'T let go until they have a signed contract

I have a whole list of reasons why i prefer workin' with women over guys ... however they're so rare, in coding!
Make damn'd fine pixel pushers thou - or atlest mine does

eck not in my experience... they're terrible at making a decent cuppa!

as for organsied - i don't think that is a skill any coders no matter the sex tend to have
(its a coder thing )

I mean i know artists are oftenly messy as we have a few sketchs here and there, a few tools for the desktop (perhaps a "kill me" elmo on our monitor ) ... but coders, damn they take the piss - you can't move in thier offices without then shouting "NO not there... erm you can stand on that square of carpet, the bit without papers"

- though - an irish lass... man, they have stunnin' accents. Ack and the red heads (DON'T mean ginger ment RED!) ... oki i think i've been too long without hahaa

A) I screwed many sheep
B) Screwed few women, and women can't program their place is in the kitchen with a mop and broom.
C) As you can tell I sniff and eat glue.

I got a job programming with a company called SCP when I was 14 and I intend to stick at it! so when I get the hang of DarkBasic, I'll post my work somewhere on this site.
But I got soo much work to do at uni now, and its not helping that I party just way to much, think I'm still hungover!

I may have red hair and green eyes, but I live in Northern Ireland so I don't have the irish accent.

I'm organised when it come to everything else except coding, but as long as I can understand what I'm doing I'm happy!

PS. I make good coffee!!!!

hehee... i can for the US/Europe/Japan
everywhere else alot of information like that is classified ... for some odd reason.

Just need to search the international registry of residence - must be a legitimate member who doesn't want to use the information you gain for commercial or abusive purposes. Basically for finding lost friends, family members etc - break the agreement on it they black book your name.
Probably an interesting little fact that you could find out going there (different for each country so check your local info beurau) but the "Lettan" surname currently registered world wide there are 12
2 - Toronto, Canada
1 - Irvine, USA
2 - Hertfordshire, UK
4 - Greater London, UK
3 - Derby, UK
1 - Kiroshimka, Japan

probably spelt the Canadian and Japanese ones wrong
but is one of the smallest, i mean compare that to the 580,000 "Smiths" world wide (no i'm not gonna list them )
i always found that service very interesting.

Actually wool is just like hair, and is therefore dead. The roots are alive though.

Actually, that's impossable. Something that was never alive cannot be dead. It is simply not alive.

Belfast
Ballymena
Omagh
Derry
Culcavy

My order of locations.

I think that there is only one university near you and that being Belfast.

It is not belfast as it is a city. But you like to drive, so maybe Ballymena.

I take it SCP had a website before it was taken over, so i have somming else to go on.

Do you ever use the search engine Copernic?
It's great for finding out things about people! I mean I can type in my whole name and it shows all my email addresses, my website and even the details of the programming competition that I entered when I was 16. (It was in TurboPascal and I did soooo badly, I came like 30th) lol!
