Why is it Great to be a Guy

taken from the web :

Phone Conversations are over in 30 seconds flat.
You know stuff about tanks.
A five-day vacation requires only one suitcase.
You can open all your own jars.
Dry cleaners and hair cutters don't rob you blind.
You can go to the bathroom without a support group.
You can leave the bed unmade.
You can kill your own food.
You get extra credit for the slightest act of thoughtfulness.
Wedding plans take care of themselves.
If someone forgets to invite you to something, he or she can still beyour friend.
Your underwear is $10 for a three-pack.
If you are 34 and single, nobody notices.
Everything on your face stays its original color.
You can quietly enjoy a car ride from the passenger's seat.
Three pairs of shoes are more than enough.
You don't have to clean if the meter reader is coming.
Car mechanics tell you the truth.
You can quietly watch a game with your buddy for hours without everthinking: "He must be mad at me."Gray hair and wrinkles only add character.
Wedding dress - $2,000. Tuxedo rental - 75 bucks.
You can drop by to see a friend without bringing a little gift.
If another guy shows up at the party in the same outfit, you justmight become lifelong friends.
Your pals will never trap you with: "So, notice anything different?"You know which way to turn a nut on a bolt.
You almost never have strap problems in public.
You are unable to see wrinkles in your clothes.
The same hairstyle lasts for years, maybe decades.
You don't have to shave below your neck.
One wallet and one pair of shoes, one color, all seasons.Gas (at either end) is cool.
Your belly usually hides your big hips.

About Learning Java(or other programming language) -funny

Got this from a great site i guess the cartoon really tells the truth about Java or should i say he just understand how difficult java for him to learn programming at first time?

About .NET

Another Programming Language had been served to us , and this time i somehow understand that learning new languages will improve a programmer efficiently. As i study this technology i read a book about "Introducing Microsoft.NET" by Platt. I don't know if he hates Java alot by making that book eheheh. But i understand the power of the .NET anyway.
For me .NET is like a Java that became easy !
so i guess to those people who loves creating great GUI will switch to this language or for those programmer that still prefer the long coding type then Java will still be great!(i still love java)

for a fact that every window GUI that you can see in some application can be dragged in the form. We are actually using Visual Basic 2005 Express Edition for amateurs or novices as they say. Anyway i know that only the tools are different when you have the Visual Studio 2005 package(in which i cannot find a pirated one here in the Philippines-lol).
My major thesis will be using the .NET instead of the VB6 cause hey VB.NET together with ASP.NET would be great! So im self studying more about these .NET by reading books and looking around on the Web.

I hope that we could have a great Thesis using the .NET technology
The .NET technology is a great change for microsoft that they really wanted to be on top of other languages!

Still i will be pursuing my Java and i should say that .NET would be second in command!
