what do you call it when a company wants to build a website (or any kind of project), and calls a given numbers of company to throw proposals and choose one? this is not a joke, i have no clue, and need the term --now, the joke-- ok, i'm paying this favor with a great joke i saw from a local comedian.... (let me know if you've heard it before) situation: ...there's a meeting of an organization that's runing a campaing against drugs in schools, they're evauating the performance of their lecturers... so, one guy comes in front and says: guy X -well, i visited a class with 40 students, and came back with 14 signed letters from the students promising they will never get close to drugs in their lives. (director) -very well done, how did you do it? guy X - i just took up the chalk and drawed two circles, one big and one small ------- / \ / \ / \ | | -- | | / \ | | | | \ / \ / \ / -- \ / ------- A B guy X - than i explanied it to them: "A is the brain of a kid who has never done drugs, B is the brain of a young man, wasted by drugs" (director), cogratulations! guy Y - stands up and says - that's nothing! (director) can you explain? guy Y - i visited a school of 1000 students, and now i bring you a letter signed by the school's director certifying that all of his students are committed to stay away from drugs for the rest of tehir lives. (director) amazing, what did you tell them? guy Y - well, i opened my laptop, turned on the projector, and showed them a slide with two circles, one big and one small: ------- / \ / \ / \ | | -- | | / \ | | | | \ / \ / \ / -- \ / ------- A B then... i proceded to explain... "B is the arse of a kid who has never gone to jail for dealing drugs" . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
