Programming is like...

My buddy Brad was good enough to forward a great post from alt.humor.best-of-usenet on how programming is like sex. Read on for more...

Actually I always thought that programming was quite similar to sex.
The first time you do it you have no idea what you're doing. It seems
like men think about it more than women. Doing it in a large group
makes things far too complicated, since no person will know exactly
where their part is supposed to fit, though some people claim that
it'll give you better results. Doing it by yourself is what most
students end up doing. It will take a lifetime to master it. There's
no one right way to do it, but a number of wrong ways. People who have
never tried it think that those of us who practice it daily are
deviants. It's fun. It takes a lot of energy. It can keep you up late
at night. It can make you miss classes. Do it too long and you'll go
blind. Finally, once you get it on your mind, it's hard to concentrate
on anything else.
