    My wife thinks what I do is the most boring thing in the world. But, sometimes, I still have to share with her, so, I explain all the concepts that I'm going over in ways she can understand. Funny enough, it gives me great material to work with for writing and presenting. Because, if I can explain it all to her, I can explain it to anyone. It's really useful. Makes her a little crazy, but I make sure she's prepped ahead of time.

    My wife doesn't want to hear about it. But interestly enough, she goes on and on about her work and expects me to be interested. She really got upset one time when I said 'ok, TMI'. But she does that anytime I start talking about my work. Hmmmmmm.

    + 1. My wife's a teacher, I get to hear all about her day but the moment I mention an interesting problem I'm working on I see the lights go out.


    On two occasions I have been asked, "Pray, Mr. Babbage, if you put into the machine wrong figures, will the right answers come out?" ... I am not able rightly to apprehend the kind of confusion of ideas that could provoke such a question.
