Parachutist: "Where am I?"

Office: "You're parachuting past the 12th floor."

Parachutist:  "You must work in tech support!"

Office: "How did you know that?"

Parachutist: "Because the information you've given me is 100% accurate, and completely useless."

Just a name I remember was often used in the old EET Immortal Works caption contests (to which I was a frequent contributor).  I could have used "George Smoot" which certainly would have been recognized by the late Bob Pease among others as part of MIT lore going back to the '50s, maybe even earlier.

==Bob and other two in office==

Bob to other two : Which OS do you use?

Other two to Bob: Windows XP

Bob to other two: Still stuck with XP. Let me show you the demo of my new OS Windows RealTime.

==Bob showing the demo outside the window==

Bob to other two: Windows RT is a new Windows-based operating system that's optimized for thin and light PCs that have extended battery life and are designed for life on the go.
