This is one of the coolest mails on software industry

The local bar was so sure that its bartender was the

strongest man around that they offered a Rs 10,000

bet. The bartender would squeeze a

lemon until all the juice ran into a glass, and hand

the lemon to a patron. Anyone who could squeeze one

more drop of juice out would win the money. Many

people like weight-lifters, wrestlers, body

builders, etc had tried over time, but nobody could

do it.

One day this scrawny little man came in, wearing

thick glasses and a safari suit, and said in a tiny,

squeaky voice, "I'd like to try the bet." After the

laughter had died down, the bartender said OK,

grabbed a lemon, and squeezed away. Then he handed the

wrinkled remains of the rind to the little man.

But the crowd's laughter turned to total silence

as the man clenched his fist around the lemon and

5-6 drops fell into the glass. As the

crowd cheered, the bartender paid the Rs 10,000, and

asked the little man, "What do you do for a living?

Are you a weight-lifter, or what?"

"No," replied the man.

"I work as a project manager in a software company !! "
