you are HERE

After hating myself all afternoon for my inability to execute PIC16F877 code, I get this phone call...

*ring ring*
Me: Hello?
Voice of girl on first floor: Do you know what "cookies" are?
Me: Like, chocolate chip?
Voice: No! The kind on your computer! This website says my "cookies" are wrong and I need help!
Me: Oh, yeah. Well are you accepting them? In your options, are you set up to accept cookies?
Voice: huh?
Me: What browser are you using?
Voice: What bras am I using?
Me: What BROW-SER... are you using Netscape or Internet Explorer?
Voice: How am I supposed to know that?
Me: What program are you using to surf the internet?
Voice: um, the internet program?
another pause
Me: Never mind, I'll just come down.

To summarize: For an electronics major, I'm not all that bright and really can't do that much. For a normal person just walking on the street, I sometimes think I'm going to go very, very far in this world.

Which brings me to my next thought: if over half the population is not even as smart as I am, I'm kinda worried about society. In fact, I'm not even sure how we got this far...
