    Open packet, eat nuts

    There's a FAQ for everything it seems - though I figure if you're smart enough to find the answer, you're smart enough to not have to.

    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    Wait.. thats serious. At first I thought it was going to be a joke site or something. omg.

    Life FAQ:

    How to breath:

    Open mouth and/or make sure nasal passages are clear.

    Widen your chest creating a sucking force.

    Once you have air in your lungs, be sure to immediatley let your chest back down, releasing the air.

    repeat as needed.

    And here I thought the GUI that is Windows is a tad too "spoon-feeding." I guess I was wrong.

    That article makes me feel so smart. It makes you realize that while there are loads of people smarter than you are... there are even more that are stupid

    Im going to read it again.

    You can just imagine the next conversation

    User: OK, I unplugged everything, moved the machine to a new position, and now the cables won't reach.
    Tech: Unplug the cables from the wall sockets, and reconnect them to the machine.
    User: OK
    <sounds of activity>
    User: Now the cables won't reach the wall sockets!

    Or how about

    An accidental casual contact with peanuts, or even inhaling small amounts of peanut particles can cause a severe allergic reaction and even death for those who suffer from this condition.

    I know, but when there's a warning about peanuts on a bag of peanuts, isn't that going a bit far?

    who knows some fella might sue teh company saying that he did not know that the bag od peanuts contained peanut products..

    When the TP_return_white?() = TRUE, you may then terminate asswipe().

    also break when TP_return_red() = TRUE.

    and to Salem's thread: ... dumb people will ask that question, and there are a lot more dumb people in this world than you think.

    It is worse than you thought Ken, if you run that search it says not found, but also says "Did you mean: How do I wipe my own as", so in the line of research, I said yes that was what I meant, and that too fails!
