    I'm sorry, what is the significance of SOS? It doesn't mean Save Our Ship anymore?

    Gah... Dan Brown... confusing everyone.

    It's actual mean is "Save Our Souls"
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    In reality, it means Stop Our Stool. It was developed because of Montezuma's Revenge.

    The letters S O S are easy to produce and remember in Morse Code, so it became common for SOS to be used in distress signals, I don't know if it has a specific meaning.

    After posting that I did a little research on it, and it has no meaning. It was originally devised by Germans in 1905 and was adopted as international standard after that. The meanings were added afterwards and none are official.

    I thought the da vinci code sucked.
    I'm not immature, I'm refined in the opposite direction.

    About the morse code stuff, I know all of that, I just found it strange that Brown took SOS completely out of context and confused people. Dumb twat.

    > I wanna see garfield!
    The new one? He goes to London and eats tons of food and harasses people. The end. The previous movie was probably the same way.

    If you've ever read a Garfield short, you've read them all... and seen both movies, and seen every episode of the Saturday morning cartoon from the 80s.

    I'm pretty sure someone posted this before, but Garfield becomes much more entertaining if you remove all of his thought bubbles. There's a pretty long thread that illustrates the concept.
    If I did your homework for you, then you might pass your class without learning how to write a program like this. Then you might graduate and get your degree without learning how to write a program like this. You might become a professional programmer without knowing how to write a program like this. Someday you might work on a project with me without knowing how to write a program like this. Then I would have to do you serious bodily harm. - Jack Klein
