I overheard bits of conversation of two women having lunch at the metreon next to me. I almost fell on the floor when I heard ...My Girlfriend blessed Bill Gates last night. I asked her why, and she said that He was responsible for the ubiquity of the mouse wheel and therefore for the extreme dexterity of the middle finger of my right hand.

Woot! This one's going in my long-term memory.

And damn, sorry we missed you at the Metron. Except that I'm not likely to see him again before he heads for dangerous parts, I will spank Steve.

Bill Gates makes me exercise the Middle finger on my right and left hand hand as well. As well as some choice expletives. Just not with the same end result.

What kind of mutant freak is using their middle finger to manipulate the wheel button?

I heard a conversation between two women last week myself that almost left me on the floor:

Two young/hip/britney-spears-wanna-be gals came into the computer lab and sat down near me. From the brief snatches of their conversation, I concluded that they were window shopping - talking about how they liked this or that outfit, "I like that but it wouldn't look good on me", etc. Then...

Girl 1: "I love that, but I could never afford it."

Girl 2: "Girl, you need to get a husband."

Girl 1: <frustrated sigh> "I know."

Hmmm... I have better ways to manage the dexterity of that finger, usually involving orifices of members of the fairer sex ;)
