"What do you mean the G4 only goes up to 500 em-aich-zee?"
"Well, you see, the G4 instruction set--"
"Don't you get technical on me, boy! Just tell me why I should buy one of these pretty pieces of plastic junk from Apple, when I can get one of them there Compaq thingies which has twice the em-aich-zee as this here fish tank!"
"As I'm trying to tell you, sir, the G4 is about twice as powerful as a PC at the same megahertz--"
"Mega hurts? What's that got to do with anything?"
"'Megahertz' is how you say 'em aich zee.' It is a measure of how fast the CPU runs."
"So you're saying that them there Compaqs run twice as fast as these G4s!"
"No, you see, G4s are twice as efficient, and so they only need to run half as fast as an x86 for the same computation power--"
"Ecks eighty-six? What the hayell kind of technical jargon-whatsitz is that?"
"*sigh* Sir, maybe perhaps I could interest you in an iMac."
"Is not a quine" is not a quine.
I have a master's degree in science!
