Quickie Fu

CmdrTaco posted more than 15 years ago | from the insanely-tame-lame-name-game-from-spain-(the-pain!) dept.

News 42

Amoeba Protozoa has the first Quickie for the day: The Linux Image Montage Project needs logos to create a montage poster. If you have a Linux related logo, send it to them. mazeone sent us a link to the always excellent NTK which has a great note about Bruce Perens at the start, (And yes, I read NTK too ;) And now a whole bunch of fun little links that have been building up: PopeClayton sent us a link to a Homer Simpson Fortune File. cpfeifer sent us a link to another O'Reily Book Parody. Zibalatz sent us a link to a MacBeth Star Wars Parody. rpm sent us a link to the Magic Nipple. It predicts the future. Sorta. Now we have a few more Porn Parody sites: desertAngel sent us Amish Porn and Gambit32 sent us telephone sex. Both are hilarious. The Only Anonymous Coward sent us a link to an emergency Security Alert: apparently a dangerous bug was found in GNU acronym. An anonymous reader sent us an important page: a Guide to Babes for Geeks. Follow these to the letter. Oh wait, most of us probably already do. That might explain my social life anyway.

Sorry! There are no comments related to the filter you selected.

i drive thru lancaster, pa, every day on my way to classes and i've NEVER seen that much leg on an amish woman. although i have seen them with plenty of produce. so i wonder... if the webmaster of that page would charge fees, does he pay taxes?

Anonymous Coward | more than 15 years ago | (#2005103)

...the secrets of getting a woman would be revealed to me!

I'm going to try it out immediately tomorrow morning!

I'm all ready to go:

I haven't shaved in 3 days or showered in about 2 weeks. I'm all pale since I haven't left my house save for school in about 3 months. I've got a print out of all the kernel code I've hacked to bring with me tomorrow on some of that old dot matrix printer paper. I'm going to wear my geeky sun glasses all day long, even in class, to prevent eye contact with any females in the general area!

Before I go I better review my huge porn archive so I know what I'm looking for tomorrow.

And, I've got business cards stuffed full of all my geeky URLs filled with stuff about Unix to boot!

I'm ready! Bring on da ladiez!

This one just occured to me... "Hamlet in a Nutshell" with the sub-title "Considering yourself king of infinite space."

Sadly I haven't the graphics chops to pull it off. So I'm releasing this joke under GPL :)

You've certainly got a valid point.

alone != loneliness

At least, not all the time. Some people probably need more social activity than others.

GNU bug (1)

Trepidity (597) | more than 15 years ago | (#2005108)

FWIW, the "dangerous bug was found in GNU acronym" originally was written for (it should still be in the archives around a bit). Apparently one of the GNU people (not sure if it was RMS or one of the other GNU people) saw it and liked it and asked if he could use it on the site, and naturally the segfault people agreed, so it's there now.

An experiment in women... (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 15 years ago | (#2005109)

I posted an over- the-top parody [] of an abusive jerk in the Excite personals yesterday, to see if any women would actually respond. It's fairly obvious that it's a joke; still, I wonder how many responses this will generate.

Jonathan Hamilton (221) | more than 15 years ago | (#2005111)

Welp back in October yes, or at least that what it looked like. I went to the Atlantic Linux Showcase and their were two diffrent girls that follow Rob, Freshmeat man , and the editor. They didn't look to bad, but I'm still convinced thats why Rob didn't go naked to that convetion. One of his friends has spice girl shoes on!??!?!?!?.

Real Geek Guide to Babes. (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 15 years ago | (#2005116)

Where's a REAL guide? I need one.

However, I see some similarities to myself in that list of qualities. This disturbs me.

I seem to remember something about getting girls to like you involving being a jerk and pretending you don't know anything except how to be cool, even if you don't. And definately looking at yourself and saying, "I WANT to be looked at as just a piece of meat."

The other idea is to be yourself, and then you will find true love. Or, you might not. You might just live your whole life lonely and then die.

Argh. By the way, I've tried both methods. And the one that works at all is the first one.

Damn. (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 15 years ago | (#2005117)

Wow, Star Wars MacBeth was done at my high school, mostly by two of the hardcore video editor guys (pity they didn't use Linux). Never thought I'd see them on /. though!

God I love Zork... (1)

slothbait (2922) | more than 15 years ago | (#2005118)

That was pretty funny, and really made me nostalgic. You know, modern games like Grim Fandango are awful cool, but they just aren't the same as the old text-games. Games like Zork had some real character. Also: I kind of like the idea of an adventurer trapped in an office, murking around with printers and evil coworkers, reading notes from bosses. I understand that people still write these games, maybe I should try my hand some time...

This almost makes me want to reboot into DOS...guess it's time to install dosemu on this puppy.


A Paradoxical Strategy (1)

acb (2797) | more than 15 years ago | (#2005119)

There is one solution: just forget about it. Forget all about sex (it's just another neurochemical high). Forget about "having a girlfriend" as a symbol of social acceptance. (Symbols are themselves meaningless.) Reject the social conditioning and genetic programming that tells you to find a mate; you are more than a puppet of your genes. That's ultimately all that courtship is about; your genes looking for ways to reproduce themselves.

Instead focus on enjoying what is to be enjoyed, be it conversation with friends or seeing films or playing in a band or photographing landscapes, with no goal in mind other than to enjoy what you're doing. (That's the important part. If you go out for the purpose of trying to find a partner, it won't work.)

Stop angsting. You've survived so far alone, and you can survive for longer. Besides, not being alone brings its own share of problems. Having a girlfriend does not guarantee happiness; if you're prone to unhappiness, all it does is trade your existing discontent for new kinds. And throw out all your Smiths records.

Become content with being alone; find satisfaction within. Get out from in front of the computer for the purpose of enjoying what life has to offer you now. Widen your interests, and make the best use of your life as it is now. Above all things, to thine own self be true.

Perhaps you won't then always be alone; but even if you are, you'll have a better time of it.

"Life is unfair, kill yourself or get over it."

Erbo (384) | more than 15 years ago | (#2005122)

The hell of it is, the guy "running" the "auction" linked his own eBay profile to this page, and has actually gotten comments, including 6 positive feedbacks, for this page! (Some of the comments are a riot, too...)

My guess is, if/when eBay spots this, he's probably hosed...but they really ought to just give him a commendation for original thinking.

I used to live in and the picture was unrealistic. I mean where's the hat? You know, the white cloth thing? Also too much leg. Never saw that in all my days.

She was a pretty model though. I think another poster said that though, pretty without makeup etc

I just don't get it. I look at phones all the time, for over 1/2 hour straight sometimes. Esp. this really neat one that I saw that was built in to the wall.

Anonymous Coward | more than 15 years ago | (#2005134)

Man, she was a babe.

Seriously, not one of those empty-headed I've got eyes only for a mirror vain types with no sense of humor. One of those wholesome types with brains who just enjoy the hell out of life.

The kind who looks terrific without makeup -- like when you see her the morning after and wonder why God was nice to you for once?

And red hair too.


Not really an A/C, just didn't want to bother dragging out my password.
