While Bill is waiting at the airport to board his plane, he notices a computer scale that would give your weight and a fortune. He drops a quarter in the slot, and the computer screen displays: “You weigh 195 pounds, you are married and you are on your way to San Diego.” Bill stands there dumbfounded.
Another man puts in a quarter and the computer reads: “You weigh 184 pounds, you are divorced, and you are on your way to Chicago.” Bill asks the man: “Are you divorced and on our way to Chicago?” “Yes,” replies the man.
Bill is amazed. Then he rushes to the men’s room, changes his clothes and puts on dark glasses. He goes to the machine again. The computer reads: “You still weigh 195 pounds, you are still married, and you just missed your flight to San Diego."
