It's Friday!

TGIF! I guess we could use a break from ranting about New SCN, so resurrecting the good old Friday thread.

    My contribution (didn't include in the original post because the whole post is displayed in the list):

    A Roman legionnaire walks into a bar, holds up 2 fingers and says: "Five beers!". :)

    Was looking for a recipe in my old personal blog and found this story from when my kid was maybe 3 years old. (It's important to note that my kid has a major sweet tooth)

    In the car:

    Kid: Where are we going?
    Me: To a store.
    K: Which store?
    M: "Marshalls".
    K. [excitedly]: Marshmallows?!
    M: No, "Marshalls"!

    10 minutes later in the "Marshalls" store.
    Kid [confusedly]: But where are the marshmallows?

    :) Have a great weekend!

    Edit: for those not in the US I should clarify that Marshalls is not a grocery store, they mainly sell clothes and home goods.

      He sounds like my kind of person. BTW, tell your son "Happy National Chocolate Cake Day" - now you have to celebrate that!! Jocelyn Dart informed me of this great occasion.

    Recently I got stuck in traffic on the way to pick up my husband and kid from a water park. Normally I don't text him but I knew he likely wouldn't hear the phone ring and just needed to send him a short message about the delay.

    Since I was driving, I just pushed a button on my bluetooth earpiece and asked Siri to text my husband: "Might be late 10 minutes". The message Siri composed was: "May have a leak, send tapes". :)

    I think AI and machine learning still have a loooong way to go...

      So... did he sent tapes? ^^

        Duct tape or electrical tape? Both tapes?

        Fortunately, Siri asks to confirm the text before sending, so after I stopped laughing I was able to type it myself while sitting at a traffic light. So, no tapes for me. :)

      Now I wanna know what Siri would type if you told her to send a text that says "May have a leak, send tapes". :-D

    Not Friday yet but the obligatory digital security training is already cracking me up:

    "Hello, IT? I have a virus on my PC. There is some white X on green background. I'm totally addicted to it and it seems to be taking over our SAP and running our enterprise." :)
