Isn't that precisely why it's funny ? To think that in fact somebody
is having fun or something not necessarily funny but so true. The fact
taht somebody els makes it funny makes you think twice about the situation:
depending on your attitude, you can laugh or cry about it.

I think I'm going to buy a Dilbert book this afternoon. It'll be translated
into French but heck, I will then share it with my colleagues at work(I'm doing
a job training for my end-of-year Software Engineering).

Hey, is there a cause-and-effect thingy here ? Ok guys and gals, how many
of you are spending time on the comp. box (I guess everybody since this is a
mailing list). I mean as a job.

Wait, wait, maybe it's all in succeeding in filtering the interesting
(subjectively) channels, programmes etc...

If you watch some stuff on a subject which bores you you'll be bored
for sure, innit ?
