another rip at microsoft

Post by ragtopW »

A helicopter was flying around above Seattle yesterday when an
electrical malfunction disabled all of the aircraft's
electronic navigation and communications equipment. Due to the
clouds and haze, the pilot could not determine the helicopter's
position and course to steer to the airport.

The pilot saw a tall building, flew toward it, circled, drew a
hand-written sign, and held it in the helicopter's window. The
pilot's sign read "WHERE AM I?" in large letters.

People in the tall building quickly responded to the aircraft,
drew a large sign, and held it in a building window. Their sign
read "YOU ARE IN A HELICOPTER". The pilot smiled, waved, looked
at his map, determined the course to steer to the
Seattle-Tacoma airport, and landed safely.

After they were on the ground, the copilot asked the pilot how
the "YOU ARE IN A HELICOPTER" sign helped determine their
position.

The pilot responded "I knew that had to be the Microsoft
building because, similar to their help-lines, they gave me a
technically correct but completely useless answer."

Microsoft isn't in Seattle, it's in Redmond, Wa. Their tallest building is 6, maybe 8 floors tall.....

Larry Ellison, is that you? :lol:
