One day, Nimal complained to his friend Ruchira,"My elbow really hurts.I guess I should see a doctor."
His friend offered,"Don't do that !!!There's a computer at the drug store that can diagnose anything,quicker and cheaper than a doctor.Simply 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 10francs."
Nimal figured he had nothing to lose, so he filled a jar with a urine sample and went to the drug store.Finding the computer, he poured in the sample and deposited the 10francs. 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.
Late that evening while thinking how amazing this new technology was and how it would change medical science for ever, he began to wonder of this machine could be fooled. He decided to give it a try.
He mexed together some tap water, a stool sample of his dog and urine samples of his wife and daughter. To top it off, he masturbated in to the conction. He went back to the drug store, located the machine, poured in the sample and deposited 10francs.The computer again made the usual noise and printed out the following message:
Your tap water is too hard.
