Tech company marketing blather

One of my pet peeves is marketing text on websites where a software company makes a claim about their developers such as, “between us, we have over 157 years of experience building e-mail applications.” It’s a statement so hard to quantify that it’s meaningless. Do they have one guy who’s 120 years old and has been building e-mail applications since he was 20, and then another guy who’s 80 years old and has been building e-mail applications for the past 57 years of his life, and then a bunch of guys who have zero experience? How you slice up the pie means something.

I would love to see a sales manager stand in front of 200 or so programmers and say something like, “between us, we have 50 years of experience.”

Another one of my pet peeves is beautiful women who won’t have sex with me. They really get my goat! (Or, to be technical about it, they don’t get my goat. HaHaHaHaHa!)

    Forget about that, this morning I sat down and watched an episode of “The A Team” for the very first time in my Life and who should appear on it but THE TEENAGE TIA CARRERE!!! I shit you not! TEENAGE TIA CARRERE running around in the jungle wearing khaki shorts! Not quite as hot as TIA CARRERE in the Zucker Brothers’ “High School High” with Jon Lovitz or the little known Casino Heist Movie “On Top Of The World” with Dennis Hopper but still pretty fuckin’ hot for a rerun of “The A Team”.

    At least I think it was Tia Carrere.

    Weird – my nephew was telling me he knew her cousin or someone like that.
