Sex and its analogues

Here are two interesting analogies, both involving sex :

  • Documentation [in computer programs] is a lot like sex. When it is good, it is really good; when it is bad, it is better than nothing.
    (paraphrase of a fortune cookie from my linux machine ...)
  • Physics is like sex. Sure, it may give some practical results, but that's not why we do it.
    (Richard P. Feynman)
