If Microsoft Built Cars

At a recent computer expo (COMDEX), Bill Gates reportedly compared the computer industry with the auto industry and stated: “If GM had kept up with technology like the computer industry has, we would all be driving twenty-five dollar cars that got 1000 miles to the gallon.”

In response to Bill’s comments, General Motors issued a press release stating: if GM had developed technology like Microsoft, we would all be driving cars with the following characteristics:

1. For no reason whatsoever your car would crash twice a day.

2. Every time they painted the lines on the road you would have to buy a new car.

3. Occasionally, executing a maneuver such as a left turn would cause your car to shut down and refuse to restart, in which case you would have to re-install the engine.

4. Macintosh would make a car that was powered by the sun, was reliable, five times as fast, and twice as easy to drive, but would only run on five percent of the roads.

5. New seats would force everyone to have the same size butt.

6. Occasionally for no reason whatsoever, your car would lock you out and refuse to let you in until you simultaneously lifted the door handle, turned the key, and grabbed hold of the radio antenna.

7. GM would require all car buyers to also purchase a deluxe set of Rand McNally road maps (now a GM subsidiary), even though they neither need them nor want them. Attempting to delete this option would immediately cause the car’s performance to diminish by 50 percent or more. Moreover, GM would become a target for investigation by the Justice Dept.

8. Every time GM introduced a new model, car buyers would have to learn how to drive all over again because none of the controls would operate in the same manner as the old car.

9. You’d press the “start” button to shut off the engine.

Our Prayers for Rancho Tehama

We here at Christian gaming community are saddened once again as 5 people have been shot and killed by a gunman in Rancho Tehama Northern California and ten other people have been wounded in an estimated 45 minute attack on a small remote town.  

Our prayers to all the friends and families of those lives lost and wounded in this horrific act of violence.

We pray that our Heavenly Father God Almighty pours out His strength and comfort to all the families and friends of the victims. That Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior pour out his healing hands to those that have been injured. All this we pray in the name of the Son Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. Amen.
