A 17 year old got mawed to death, and you put the news in humor?Owing to the deficiency of the English language, I have occasionally used the academic jargon generator to produce phrases that even I don't fully understand. The jargons are not meant to offend anyone or to insult anyone's intelligence!
The fact that I bothered tracking this down further proves I have no real life.

"Nixon was a professional politician, and I despised everything he stood for â€” but if he were running for president this year against the evil Bush-Cheney gang, I would happily vote for him." - Hunter S. Thompson

Open source according to Uncyclopedia. It's actually true. Being someone that has spent many many many many hours trying to get open source softwares to work, this article has brought back a lot of memories.
Seriously, even though it's funny as hell, it's all true. I shit you not. Here is a section that is particularly true.
quote:Sit back and wait for the "Congratulations" message. Reboot the PC and pray you see a desktop.
Open a Terminal and sue to root. Ok, that's su root but don't worry, this command will become second nature, rather like saying "I do" to the wife.
Marvel at how you're typing in commands like cd /etc/sysconfig/network and vi config and editing files to enter lines like FORCE_PERSISTENT_NAMES=no or running suseconfig and then cursing because Linux is case sensitive and won't recognize it unless you type SuSEconfig.
If the above fails, install Ubuntu. It installs just as easy as Windows, and you can play games on the Live CD while you do it. (Just be warned, you'll be instantly labeled as a "n00b at linux lol" because you're installing it the easy way.)
Slam your head against the wall, while you try to find drivers for your video card that work.
Uninstall the video drivers and then reinstall them, as the kernal did not get installed correctly.
Enable Desktop effects, and waste 5 hours jiggling windows around and watching as the wiggle.
I'm one of those that has a lot of patience... ok not really. When I went to some hardcore linux forums to ask a few questions, I got two 1 word answers and 20 "you're stupid" answers.
Let's face it, the linux community is not that friendly toward newbies. It took me the last 5 years to be able to use linux with ease and I still consider myself a newbie.
Added by edit.
And I speak as someone that is currently using open source softwares. In fact, open source makes up 98% of all the softwares I use, including the various compilers and whatnot.
