"Who the hell wants to hear actors talk?" --H.M. Warner, Warner Brothers, 1927.
Hmm I think he was on to something with most. I mean listening to Lindsay Lohan or Charlie Sheen boast, does make you wish they would shut the hell up. But still looks like he suffered a hiccup.
"Computers in the future may weigh no more than 1.5 tons." --Popular Mechanics, forecasting the relentless march of science, 1949
I knew there was a reason the cat was getting so strong. Lifting this laptop might just break my back if I move wrong. How all those business people do it is beyond me and they must be good at hiding 1.5 tons from all to see.
"I have traveled the length and breadth of this country and talked with the best people, and I can assure you that data processing is a fad that won't last out the year." --The editor in charge of business books for Prentice Hall, 1957
I knew there was a reason the best people were full of strat. I guess this just proves that. And who are the best people anyway? Sounds like a roadside cow had his say.
"There is no reason anyone would want a computer in their home." --Ken Olson, president, chairman and founder of Digital Equipment Corp., 1977
Of course not! They grow to be too hot. Are you crazy! Computers in the home will make people lazy. We can't have such a thing. Especially with their awful Windows noises that go cling.
"This 'telephone' has too many shortcomings to be seriously considered as a means of communication. The device is inherently of no value to us." --Western Union internal memo, 1876.
How can you condone that damn telephone? It is so short and it helps you send a retort. Yeah, that is just so bad. Forget the telephone, Morse Code is rad.
"Heavier-than-air flying machines are impossible." --Lord Kelvin, president, Royal Society, 1895.
Heavier than air? I need to check this at my lair. I'm straining to lift air, oh my back might suffer a tear. Air is so heavy I can't believe it. Not to mention flying machines aren't real, nope not one bit. Strat! A poopsicle just came down from above. It wasn't left by an airplane, it was a fifty pound dove.
"Everything that can be invented has been invented." --Charles H. Duell, Commissioner, U.S. Office of Patents, 1899.
Looks like the Jesus toasters really don't exist. The hoola hoop also didn't make the list. And you can forget about that car. Who cares though, as a horse and buggy can take you far.
"Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former." -Albert Einstein
Hmmm this just sums it up so well. Can't say I disagree and it isn't even a tough sell. Plus the quotes before just proves that fact. You humans are a real class act. In stupidity that is, which is where you sure excel at your biz. That is humans as a whole, some refuse to take stupidity for a stroll. Unlike the above, as it fits them like a glove. Oh and nothing was invented so no lawn mower for your grass. You have to push the thingy and all the while you can curse my little rhyming ass.
Enjoy your winter, smash a printer.
