Random "Wesley Saves the Day" plot generator

It's funny.  Laugh. 24

Someone left this in my blog. It must be seen to be believed.

The hilarious (and scary) thing is, the dialogue it generates is right on par with the stuff they used to give us to say.

JavaScript (2, Funny)

Ydna (32354) | more than 10 years ago | (#7644862)

Holy client side logic, Batman. It's all done with JavaScript.

Re:JavaScript (1)

CleverNickName (129189) | more than 10 years ago | (#7644930)

Uh-oh.

Is that bad?

(Javascript is one of the gaping holes in my computer knowledge.)

Re:JavaScript (2, Informative)

Ydna (32354) | more than 10 years ago | (#7644975)

No, not necessarily. In fact, in this case it's kinda kewl `cause you can just look at the HTML source and see how it's doing its thing. I don't know jack about JavaScript either. But a look at the source reveals what fun one could have with it (adding new scenarios and results and such). Save a local copy and hack away.

(There are, of course, many things one does not want to rely on client side logic for, like final input validation, because it can always be circumvented by going straight to the underlying HTTP protocol.)

Don't give in to the Gollum side of your personality - get a life instead.

So what exactly do you do with your pathetic life when you're not trolling Wil's Slashdot journal?

Re:JavaScript (-1, Flamebait)

UnCleverNickName (730102) | more than 10 years ago | (#7646031)

Honestly now, why do you call my life pathetic? You don't know anything about me, and it's a bit pompous to claim as such. Besides, I don't go out and tell other slashdot posters they have pathetic lives, when there are many on here far more often then I. I'm simply stating my opinion. I've had 3 run-in's with Willy, and all where quite unfavorable. I gave him the benefit of the doubt the first 2 times - but the 3rd? Nah, I won't do it again. He's a total clueless self-promoting asshole and rather then do my normal bit of ignoring it and turning the other cheek, I'm annoying him. I'm going the whole route too! Currently working on a website which explains all of his wrongs - I doubt he'll post it though hehe. Oh, actually, he probably will. He is like that, once again using the power of his so-called "friends" to go on the attack against people stating their opinions about him - wouldn't be the first time he's done it. So, basically, I don't have a pathetic life - and you have no real claim to even state as such. Idiot.

You sound like a very insensitive person.
But then I'm probably just whoring for friendship myself.
But then what is wrong with whoring for friendship.
I think we all could use more friends.
Can't we all be friends?

I'll go first, I made you my friend, even though you are a foe of my friend, Wil Wheaton.
I see that dispite this you even have made Wil your friend.
Won't you be my friend too?

That's the sensitive thing to do.

It's only 1/2-bad. On the scale of geekdom, it ranks near the bottom of cool.

Once you get Perl under your belt, then your stock will rise.

And you can just save the page, and it should work even when you are not connected to the internet.

Re:JavaScript (1)

FortKnox (169099) | more than 10 years ago | (#7648003)

Its not bad, nor good (IMHO).

Just make sure you know that Java and JavaScript are two completely different things ;-)

Basically, saying its done in javascript simply means its done client side; meaning your browser does all the computational work, not the server (slashdot, for example, has servers that hit DBs to get stories, so everything is done on the server side. But this site put everything on the html page itself, so that your browser does all the scramblign and reassembling of the words to put on the page).

Hope that helps :-)

Heh. Actually, it does!

Somebody get a camera. I actually learned something at Slashdot today. ;)

Heh, my pleasure!
So do I get a signed wil wheaton book? You need to do book signings in Cincinnati. ;-)

Re:JavaScript (1)

CleverNickName (129189) | more than 10 years ago | (#7648717)

I'll tell O'Reilly that I should go to Cincy in Summer . . . I'm already gonna be in OKC and Chicago, so I bet we can make it happen. :)

Five years down the line, little Janez is going to get the shit beaten out of him at school when it becomes public knowledge that his father once made a homosexual pass at Wesley FUCKING Crusher.

Re:JavaScript (0)

You are beyond homosexual.

Neil Gaiman has been sent an email regarding who you are and what kind of things you do. You can bet your miserable, pathetic life that you won't be allowed to stick around that book signing after they spot you. I told them to look out for the guy with 70s hair that resembles a retarded Gerard Depardue.

2 different foods there of note, Dixie/4 Star Chili and fried frog legs along the river's snake wall thing. Mmmmmmmm...

Chili with 5-6 toppings like phillies, don't get much better. I wish we had that and waffle houses and white castles out here in NoCal. California cuisine sucks, it is so souless no one eats it for comfort food.

Fucking christ, I LOVE LIFESTORIES. (-1)

It's about suffering. Little whiney bitch suffering. Let me tell you Wil, you fucking NAILED it.

Re:JavaScript (1)

Sloppy (14984) | more than 10 years ago | (#7706160)

Is that bad?
Well, it can be, but as long we monitor the gravitational-to-inertial mass-ratio regulator to prevent a chain reaction from fusing the warp field control, I think it'll be ok.

More 'Mindless' Trek Bashing (1)

hound3000 (238628) | more than 10 years ago | (#7646932)

And with all due respect Wil.

They just started Treknobabble with your character, it wasn't fully perfected until B&B came out with Voyager. The number of times they wrote themselves into a hole only mindless treknobabble that nerds can't even understand...

The other series aren't guilt-free here, but at least they didn't outright rely on it. Probably one of the reasons I like Enterprise more than Voyager is that their tech level is low enough they have to rely on Captain Archer's 6th sense in order to survive. Somehow, he hears the bad guy music and instantly knows if the alien of week is out to screw him or not.

I know it's not going to happen, but since you're a writer now Wil, maybe you can take over Star Trek and start writing some real scripts. It's not the special effects, it's not the characters or actors I have a problem with in Enterprise, it's the lack of good quality writing. By the way, good luck with your new profession, all the best.
