Faced with crisis, the man of character falls back on himself. He imposes his own stamp of action, takes responsibility for it, makes it his own.
- Charles De Gaulle, French General and Statesman (1890-1970)
IT security expert Avira surveyed over 14,000 of their computer users . . .
39% – Cursed or yelled at the computer out loud
38% – No! I would never yell at my computer, it is too sensitive. (I friendly try to encourage it working again…)
11% – Wished for catastrophe to strike the company that makes your operating system software or computer
9% – Hit your computer with another object (fist, baseball bat, etc.)
3% – Actually thrown the computer to the ground or against a desk or other piece of furniture

I do know some people who just don’t curse in any situation, but 39% still seems awfully low to me.
