'House' for instance, is feminine: 'la casa.'

'Pencil,' however, is masculine: 'el lapiz.'

A student asked, 'What gender is 'computer'?'
Instead of giving the answer, the teacher split the class into two groups, male and female, and asked them to decide for themselves whether computer' should be a masculine or a feminine noun. Each group was asked to give four reasons for its recommendation.
The men's group decided that 'computer' should definitely be of the feminine gender ('la computadora'), because:
1 No one but their creator understands their internal logic ;
2. The native language they use to communicate with other computers is incomprehensible to everyone else;
3. Even the smallest mistakes are stored in long term memory for possible later retrieval; and
4. As soon as you make a commitment to one, you find yourself spending half your paycheck on accessories for it.
The women's group, however, concluded that computers should be Masculine ('el computador'), because:
1. In order to do anything with them, you have to turn them on;
2. They have a lot of data but still can't think for themselves;
3. They are supposed to help you solve problems, but half the time they ARE the problem; and
4. As soon as you commit to one, you realize that if you had waited a little longer, you could have gotten a better model.
The women won.

After a long hiatus of frigid isolation, RDPS & FDPS at Ahmedabad ATC started talking to each other. Finally the radar controllers were relieved as they had become the target of all nasty barbs due the cold relationship between RDPS & FDPS. They had become so engrossed in typing that they needed to be reminded that they were not typists but controlling Air traffic.
Now the radar controller can stretch their legs (it is a new feeling for them) as they have to no longer type incessantly.
But they have practised enough for an alternate career of professional typists.
RDPS & FDPS talking has eased tension across ACC-D/A & RSR borders. Now we no longer find RSR controller glaring across the ‘border’ if aircraft comes into direct contact. He no longer is groping as callsign is already displayed.
It appears there is bonhomie amongst working controllers. For the moment!
Long live the anonymous ATCO.
