cookies

Cookies – by Douglas Adams (luat copy/paste din feed-ul de pe Facebook)


This actually did happen to a real person, and the real person was me. I had gone to catch a train. This was April 1976, in Cambridge, U.K. I was a bit early for the train. I’d gotten the time of the train wrong. I went to get myself a newspaper to do the crossword, and a cup of coffee and a packet of cookies. I went and sat at a table. I want you to picture the scene. It’s very important that you get this very clear in your mind. Here’s the table, newspaper, cup of coffee, packet of cookies.

There’s a guy sitting opposite me, perfectly ordinary-looking guy wearing a business suit, carrying a briefcase. It didn’t look like he was going to do anything weird. What he did was this: he suddenly leaned across, picked up the packet of cookies, tore it open, took one out, and ate it. Now this, I have to say, is the sort of thing the British are very bad at dealing with. There’s nothing in our background, upbringing, or education that teaches you how to deal with someone who in broad daylight has just stolen your cookies.

You know what would happen if this had been South Central Los Angeles. There would have very quickly been gunfire, helicopters coming in, CNN, you know. . . But in the end, I did what any red-blooded Englishman would do: I ignored it. And I stared at the newspaper, took a sip of coffee, tried to do a clue in the newspaper, couldn’t do anything, and thought, what am I going to do? In the end I thought, Nothing for it, I’ll just have to go for it, and I tried very hard not to notice the fact that the packet was already mysteriously opened.

I took out a cookie for myself. I thought, That settled him. But it hadn’t because a moment or two later he did it again. He took another cookie. Having not mentioned it the first time, it was somehow even harder to raise the subject the second time around. “Excuse me, I couldn’t help but notice . . .” I mean, it doesn’t really work. We went through the whole packet like this. When I say the whole packet, I mean there were only about eight cookies, but it felt like a lifetime. He took one, I took one, he took one, I took one. Finally, when we got to the end, he stood up and walked away.

Well, we exchanged meaningful looks, then he walked away, and I breathed a sigh of relief and sat back. A moment or two later the train was coming in, so I tossed back the rest of my coffee, stood up, picked up the newspaper, and underneath the newspaper were my cookies. The thing I like particularly about this story is the sensation that somewhere in England there has been wandering around for the last quarter-century a perfectly ordinary guy who’s had the same exact story, only he doesn’t have the punch line.

In 1901 Preşedintele MacKinley este asasinat în timp ce vizita Expoziţia Pan-Americană din Bufallo. Dat fiind că în 1901 nu existau CIA, Mafie, KGB sau fundamentalişti arabi pe care să se dea vina pentru asasinat, până la urmă americanii au fost nevoiţi să dea vina chiar pe criminal.

pozitii

De dimineata rasfoind asa blogurile, am dat peste un link de la Pitici Gratis cu o lista de pozitii de futai tembele.

Roaba galopantă: În timp ce i-o tragi capră (ştii cum e capră, sper, doar nu eşti idiot, nu?), o apuci de coapse sănătos. Exact în acelaşi timp i-o înfigi în cur până la rădăcină şi îi ridici picioarele în aer. Confuzată şi luată prin surprindere, va începe să pedaleze din mâini, ca să îşi scoată mătărânga din bostan, răcnind cât o ţin plămânii. Tu o ţii în continuare sănătos de craci, să nu îi pună în pământ şi o menţii adânc înfiptă, alergând după ea. E lejer, nu scapă că tu dai din picioare şi ea din mâini.

De ce e excitantă: Habar n-am. Da’ e hazlie
Unde se poate practica: Şi în casă, da’ cel mai bine pe un loc întins, să aibă unde să pedaleze. Pajişte, sală de sport, ce vrea muşchii tăi
Câte calorii se ard: Oho. Căcălau. Mai ales ea. Se ard 100 numa de la cât o să i se bulbuce ochii.

De fiecare data cand o citesc ma iasa asa rasul de e pericol. Si io cam rad, nu ma joc :))

[geek stuff] debian openssl bug

In urma bugului de OpenSSL descoperit in Debian GNU/Linux, detalii aici, LOL Cats prezinta:

Pentru cine n-a avut rabdare sa citeasca tot despre bug-ul respectiv, povestea pe scurt e ca un maintainer de la pachetul care contine OpenSSL a comentat o bucata de cod care introducea entropie in generatorul de numere aleatoare dintr-un motiv relativ stupid, si anume ca debuggerul valgrind se plangea de niste rutine din bucata respectiva de cod.
