A Wonderful Computer Scale

While Milgrom waited at the airport to board his plane, he noticed a computer scale that would give your weight and a fortune. He dropped a quarter in the slot and the computer screen displayed. "You weigh 195 pounds, you are married and you're on your way to San Diego," Milgrom stood there dumbfounded.

Another man put a quarter and the computer read, "you weigh 184 pounds, you're divorced and you're on your way to Chicago."
Milgrom said to the man : "Are you divorced and on your way to Chicago?"

"Yes," came the reply.

Milgorm was amazed. Then he rushed to the men's room, changed his clothes and put on dark glasses. He went to the machine again. The computer read : "you still weigh 195 pounds, you're still married. And you just missed your phone to San Diego!"

Alat Timbang Berkomputer Yang Hebat

Milgrom sedang menunggu di lapangan kapal terbang untuk menaiki kapal terbang apabila dia ternampak alat timbang berkomputer. Ia boleh memberikan maklumat mengenai berat badan and menilik nasib. Milgrom memasukkan wang siling ke dalam slot dan skrin komputer menunjukkan maklumat berikut : "Berat badan anda adalah 195 paun, telah berkahwin dan dalam perjalanan ke San Diego," Milgrom tergamam.

Seorang lelaki lain memasukkan wang siling ke dalam slot dan komputer itu menunjukkan maklumat berikut: "Berat badan anda adalah 184 paun, telah bercerai dan kini dalam perjalanan ke Chicago."

Milgrom bertanya kepada orang itu: "adakah anda telah bercerai dan dalam perjalanan ke Chicago?"

"Ya," jawab lelaki tersebut.

Milgrom terpegun. Lantas dia pergi ke bilik air, menukar pakaiannya dan memakai kaca mata hitam. Dia pergi semula ke alat timbang berkomputer tersebut. Komputer itu menunjukkan maklumat: "Berat badan masih 195 paun, anda masih berkahwin dan anda baru sahaja terlepas penerbangan anda ke San Diego!"
