While trying to multi-task by holding my AT keyboard in one hand and inserting a floppy into the AT with the other hand, I accidentally dropped my hefty AT keyboard right on my left foot. Let me tell you, it hurt like a son of a *%#!@. Of course the keyboard is so durable it wasn't harmed, but my toes hurt quite badly. Lesson learned: Real men cannot multi-task. Leave that to the women.

Doesn't burping and farting at the same time count as multitasking? I think that would qualify as the man's domain

*begins to grunt like tim allen*

No, the difference between the two is too small to make it a second task.
It might be considered one task with two threads.

This would mean men can't multitask, but then do support multi-threading.

Careful, you could implode.
