Mysteries of the universe.

After a few years, my personal computers tend to suffer from keyboard fatigue. I rubbed the "s" off the keyboard of my last laptop because I do control-S to save. The left shift key on my current laptop has ceased to function. However, the keyboard I have at work has absolutely no problems whatsoever. Despite my being on it 8 hours a day and inadvertently dropping bits of crackers, microwave popcorn and water all over it for the last three years, it continues to operate trouble free. Can someone please explain this to me? I know it has nothing to do with my office computer being industrial grade.

Perhaps it's just one of those unexplainable things in the universe, like the success of Baywatch or Clamato. I mean, who in heavens name thought clam juice and tomato juice would make a marketable drink?

I personally believe that we have no passion in us when we are at work so we do not type as madly as we do at home - and we do this because time is short at home and long a work

And are you serious? Clam juice?

I couldn't agree more. A work hour seems twice as long as a non-work hour.

Yes, tomato and clam juice. As if that weren't bad enough, last Friday I saw a billboard for a Clamato and Budweiser mixture that is actually for sale. *shudder*
