From the Quotes of the Day (a litle while ago–I’m catching up):

For a long time it puzzled me how something so expensive, so
leading edge, could be so useless, and then it occurred to me
that a computer is a stupid machine with the ability to do
incredibly smart things, while computer programmers are smart
people with the ability to do incredibly stupid things. They
are, in short, a perfect match.
– Bill Bryson, Notes from a Big Country

The question of whether a computer can think is no more
interesting than the question of whether a submarine can swim.
– Edsger Dijkstra

I have a theory about the human mind. A brain is a lot like a
computer. It will only take so many facts, and then it will
go into overload and blow up.
– Erma Louise Bombeck, 1927 – 1996

Computers are like Old Testament gods; lots of rules and no mercy.
– Joseph Campbell

A computer lets you make more mistakes faster than any
invention in human history – with the possible exceptions of
handguns and tequila.
– Mitch Ratliffe

The computer is a moron.
– Peter F. Drucker
