The definition of insanity...

Thursday, December 01, 2005
Someone said, once, that "The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results." (I've seen this quote attributed to anyone from Benjamin Franklin to Albert Einstein to Rita Mae Brown.)

Let's apply that to the world around us, shall we? Let's say - and this is a strictly hypothetical case, I assure you - that somebody tries to print a document from their computer. Nothing comes out of the printer. Now a reasonable step might be to try one more time to make sure it was done properly. If nothing still comes out, what do you do?

Do you:
a) try to get assistance, or
b) try FIVE MORE TIMES on the off chance that one of them will work?

What's the definition of insanity?
