one day Bill complained to his friend, "My elbow really hurts, i guess i should see a doctor."
his friend said, "Dont do that. there's a computer at the drugstore that can diagnose anything quicker and cheaper than a doctor could. just put in a sample of your urine and the computer will diagnose your problem and tell you what you can do about it. it only costs ten pesos"
Bill figured he had nothing to lose, so he filled a jar with a urine sample and went to the drugstore. finding the computer, he poured in the sample and deposited the P10. the computer started making some noise and various lights started flashing. after a brief pause out popped a small slip of paper on which was printed:
"you have tennis elbow.
soak ur arm in warm water.
avoid heavy lifting.
it will be better in twoo weeks"
late that evening while thinking how amazing this new technology was and how it would change medical science forever. he began to wonder if this machine could be fooled. he decided to give it a try. he mized together some tap water, a sample from his dog, and urine from his wife and daughter. he went back to the drugstore, located the machine, poured in the sample, and deposited the P10. the computer made the usual noise and printed out the following message:
"your tap water is too hard.
get a water softener.
your dog has worms.
get him vitamins.
your daughter is using cocaine
put her in a rehabilitation center
your wife is pregnant with twin girls
they aren't yours.
get a lawyer.
and if you don't stop fooling around, your tennis elbow will never get better."
