    Funniest thing happened to be earlier this year

    I thought i'd just post this here becuase people have to hear this. This happened at the beginning of the year and it is very funny and I hate this kid becuase he is so arrogrant but he doesn't know anything. This is from something I just posted here.
    I was in commerce class and this kid my age who I hate with a passion (hes very arrogrant and is of Egyptian descent). He was making fun of me becuase I like to code in C++ and said stuff like "you think you can program in C++, but you can't. You need a university degree to do stuff like that." He said "I'm much better than you; I wrote this whole game in Windows, not DOS (this was the early stages of my learning C++ and I did everything in a console window). I said prove it. He said he'd give you screenshots of my game. I said "send me the code". He suddenly looked worried. He said "the code's too big!". Knowing he was writing it in VB, I said "what language is it in?" He said (and I quote) "um...C ... C+ ... uh .... C++." I was amazed. Half believing him, I asked "what compiler are you using?" He said "Visual Basic 6.0" I couldn't stop laughing! This kid didn't undertsnad the differences. I was always telling him that you have to learn the basics of C++ before you can go into windows. He'd always tell me that you didn't and that VB was the way to go. I seriously hate that kid. And whenever you try to speak to this kid, he puts his hand up to your face and closes his eyes and starts making fun of you making dumb comments like "oh go program a game in DOS" or something and you cant argue your point.

    He thinks hes so cool, though. That he knows everything and puts people down all the time. Sometimes I seriously have to stop myself from beating the living **** out of this guy. If he did anything to ........ me off outside of school (not that I ever see him outside of school) I would be;t the crap out of him and i'd have alot of people wanting to join me.


    New Post*:

    I want some people's say in this...I have like an hour or 45 minutes before I gotta go (to eat and then to bed).


    New Post*:

    I have a photo of this guy. I'm gonna post it was soon as I can get someone to scan it for me...

    LOL the ignorance...

    some kid tried arguing with our teacher today, he insisted that the proper declaration of a for loop was:

    for
    {
    stuff here
    }

    LOOP(int count = loop)

    nope, no variables in there except count :P

    for
    {

    }

    LOOP(int count = loop)
    ...
    You need a university degree to do stuff like that
    What maroons! (chews on carrot)

    face_master, you need to get that guy to visit these boards sometime...especially when troll king is allowed to come back
    Now THAT would be sweet!

    Why don't you just accept the fact that you are better at programming than most people, and calm down.

    So this guy knows a bit of VB and thinks that makes him an expert. What's the problem? It keeps him happy doesn't it?

    The best way to ........ him off is just to flat out ignore him.....when he starts making stupid comments just say "OK, whatever...you're the man" and ignore him. Let him live in his little fantasy world and go about your business.

    Well, in fact the world is full of this type of people...
    I've seen many of them, you cann't imagine how dumn they are.

    yesterday someone was trying to conveince me that there is a programming language called C+!

    Another One was asking what's the defrence between Computer Sciences and Computer Engineering( he is a freshman in the college of computer engineering )!

    Someone else thinks that he is a programmer because he knows HTML and Basic.

    And many more...

    god damn i hate dum people, this one just happend today:

    Were having a open discussion on a recent project in CS2:

    m = me
    h = him


    me: Well i want a better way to do this project, after three nested switches it tends to get bulky.

    him: Switch statements, what r u simple?? I used if statements...

    me: Umm....dude thats alot of if's. Besides the program calls for switch not if.

    him: Well mines more efficent(sp)

    me: How do you figure?? Mine has less code, is easier for someone who didn't build it to read, and is optomized much more then tons of if's...

    him: because switch statements aren't standard in c++

    me: ........


    Needless to say the conversation ended there, brain...hurts...

    I don't know what to say. Beating the **** out of people is a good release but you will feel awful afterwards, I don't care how much you think he deserves it now. All of that anger will turn into pity for the person if you hit and humiliate them because you will realize that they didn't really deserve to be hit. Plus you can stand people making fun of you. If you hit them it will make you seem weak for not being able to ignore it. Capishi young sensai?

    It is funny my IST teacher (Information Systems Technology) always refers to C++ as 'C+'. She contradicts me on like everything. I told her that I thought programming games was the most difficult and challenging type of programming (as opposed to business programs). She would haul off and say that game programming isn't really all that hard and that business applications involve way more math (yeah, right) and that business applications are much more in depth and require more critical thinking than game developing.

    Oh well. i bit my tongue. It bled.

    Oh, I Call that the Modem...

    So, there I am, minding my own business during my lunch break, reading the newest issue of MaximumPC. (*note: don't ever read PC mags at work, or you automatically become the "computer expert") Had I wanted to talk to anyone, I would have gone and eaten in the cafeteria, but instead I hid at a desk behind a really tall file cabinet thinking I would be left alone. Suddenly, a woman I barely know pops her head around the corner and begins bothering me.

    Her: "Hey you're the computer expert 'round her aren'tcha?"
    BoCo: " Ummm, I don't know. I know some things."
    Her: "Well I wanted to know--why does my computer keep freezing?"
    BoCo: "I don't know, maybe your house is too cold."
    Her: "Oh, really? I didn't know that would have an effect on it."
    BoCo: "Uh, no, I was actually making a joke; nevermind.
    Her: "Huh? Oh, I get it! Hahahaha! OK, sooooooo.....why does it just stop working?
    BoCo: "What are you doing when it freezes?"
    Her: Oh, nothing! I just come back to it after it goes blank and I try to wiggle the mouse around but it won't come back on."
    BoCo: "So, the screensaver is a blank one or the Power Options turn the screen off?"
    Her: "Huh?"
    BoCo: "Do you use a screensaver?"
    Her: "No. It just goes blank after a few minutes, but usually I just shake the mouse around when I come back and the screen comes back on."
    BoCo: "Then you have a blank screensaver."
    Her: "Oh, I'm not really sure."
    BoCo: "No, I wasn't asking you, I was making a statement; you have a blank screensaver.
    Her: "Oh.....ok? Well, why won't it come back on sometimes? Then I have to either hit the reset button or undo the monitor cable from the modem and plug it back in. Sometimes that helps, but if it doesn't, then I have to restart."
    BoCo: "Well, I think I know your problem (you're an idiot), you're plugging your monitor into your modem. WAIT! How the hell do you plug a monitor into a modem???"
    Her: "I don't know, I just unscrew those thingies and pull it out, then I plug ot back in and screw them in again."
    BoCo: "You missed my point; monitors don't plug into modems."
    Her: "Well, mine does!"
    BoCo: "No it doesn't."
    Her: "Oh. Well it plugs into something."
    BoCo: "What does it plug into?"
    Her: "Uh, you know, the modem thing."
    BoCo: "No!"
    Her: "Well, that's what I call it. You know, the big square thing that you put your discs in."
    BoCo: "Your CD burner???"
    Her: "What's that?"
    BoCo: "The thing you use to make CDs....."
    Her: "Oh, I can't make CDs on mine."
    BoCo: "Foget the CD burner. Where the !@#$ do you plug the monitor cable in?"
    Her: "The back!"
    BoCo: "The back of the case?"
    Her: "What's the case??"
    BoCo: "The case! You know, the large box that contains all the electronics that make up your computer!" (duh)
    Her: "Yeah, that's the big square thing I was telling you about."
    BoCo: "Ah, I get it. Ok, what you're plugging your monitor into is the video card, and you need to...."
    Her: (interrupts) "I am? What's a video card?"
    BoCo: "Yes you are. You're plugging it into the video card. What that is, is...."
    Her: (interrupts) "What's that???"
    BoCo: "I was just getting ready to tell you, stop interrupting me. The video card is a small circuit board that sends a video signal to your monitor. It plugs into the motherboard."
    Her: "The mother what?"
    BoCo: "Mother. Board. That's the big circuit board inside your case that everything plugs into."
    Her: "What's the case?"
    BoCo: "The large square box."
    Her: "Ohhhhhh, ok. Yeah, that's the thing that I call the modem."
    BoCo: "Well, that's not a modem; it's a case. It houses all the electronics that make up your computer. A modem is simply a device that works like a telephone for a computer. It's what allows you to connect to the internet, fax, or make a phone call from your computer."
    Her: "You can make phone calls from a computer? How do you do that?"
    BoCo: "I'll tell you some other time. Right now I'm trying to figure out what's wrong with your monitor."
    Her: Well, what do you think it is? I have to unplug the monitor and plug it back in, or I have to totally reset my computer."
    BoCo: "Well, first of all, you should never unplug your monitor from your case without turning everyting off first. Second, if it works after you plug it back in, then maybe your video card is loose."
    Her: "What's a video card?"
    BoCo: "I just told you like two minutes ago. It's what sends video signals to your monitor. It plugs into the motherboard, and possibly has been unseated from the AGP slot. Have your kids kicked it or anything?"
    Her: "Oh, I'm not sure....."
    BoCo: "Ok, listen: turn everything off, but leave your computer plugged into the wall. Gently lay the case on it's side, and figure out how to take the cover off. (terror in her eyes) Once it's off, find the video card--it's the one that the monitor is plugged into, so you'll see it right away. Touch your power supply's cover to get rid of any static electricity, then put a thumb on each end of the video card and gently push it into it's slot. Also, make sure there is a small screw in the metal bracket on the end of it, and make sure the screw isn't loose."
    Her: "Oh my god1 I'm not going to get electricuted am I?"
    BoCo: "Hopefully."
    Her: "Ahh hahahahahaha! You're so funny!"
    BoCo: "No you won't get shocked."
    Her: "Am I gonna blow anything up?"
    BoCo: "No."
    Her: "How do you know?"
    BoCo: "Because I get into my case all the time."
    Her: (dumbfounded) "Oh my god, you do?!?! You aren't affraid of hurting anything or getting shocked?!?!"
    BoCo: "No. I just told you that you'll be fine, ok!"
    Her: Ok, I'll try to do that then. (repeats to herself most of what I just told her) But that's still doesn't tell me why sometimes I have to totally restart."
    BoCo: "That's because you're using Windows ME, and it's freezing during the screensaver."
    Her: "How do you know I have Windows ME???"
    BoCo: "Isn't your computer a couple years old?"
    Her: "Yeah. I am using ME, I just wondered how you knew."
    BoCo: "Because it's 2 years old, and I'm sure you haven't upgraded to XP (because you're an idiot) because if you had, it wouldn't be freezing like this."
    Her: "What's 'XP'? ...Are you *sure* I'm not going to blow anything up?"

    ~ The End~
    Thanks to: BoCo

    When I said that sometimes i've had to stop myself from killing him is becuase sometimes my friends and I would have friendly little fights - just playing. And a couple times one of my friends have pretended to hurt him, so I joking held this kid and he just goes psyco as! He'll throw a sucker punch or kick me like a girl with sheer anger in his eyes. I've just had to walk away to stop a fight getting started.
