An email disclaimer

NOTICE: This communication may contain confidential and/or privileged information. If you are not the intended recipient, or believe that you have received this communication in error, you are obligated to kill yourself and anyone else who may have read it, not necessarily in that order. So there. My disclaimer is scarier than yours. Nyaah. You started this silly nonsense. Knock it off and I will too, ok? It is a tragic waste of perfectly good CPU cycles, storage, and bandwidth. Nobody reads it anyway. You're not actually reading this, are you? I didn't think so.

Son giunto alla conclusione che, almeno una volta nella vita, bisogna usare Windows a fondo, perché è un'esperienza che rende uomini.

The phrase is “Do you want fries with that?”

NANOGers and shamans

You're talking about a group of people who are paid large sums of money for their ability to communicate with inanimate objects made of melted sand. Ever since the first shaman back in caveman days, this skill has been understood to go hand-in-hand with weirdness and odd behavior (“Father, why does talks-to-trees hop around humming to himself?” “Because he talks to trees…”)

Your code is so bad...

Your code is 100% bogus and should be taken out the back, lined up against a wall, and machine-gunned.
Then the bleeding corpse should be hung, drawn and quartered.
Then burnt.
Then the smouldering rubble should be jumped up and down on.
By a hippo.
