Not A "cool Site"

Posted 26 August 2002 - 12:14 AM

As an adult (over 35, with three kids), let me apologize to those who read this and think all adults are this retarded and naive. I was shown this site by a 15 year old who thought it was hilarious, and to be honest, I have to agree. I'm not sure if this site is a joke, or just some wacked out, right wing religious outfit. I didn't take the time to find out who is really behind it.

But if there are actually people out there who take it seriously, then we could all be in trouble. As a "grown-up" who wants a fast computer, hates AOL, uses Flash, plays Quake 2, has dabbled in Linux, and prefers AMD over Intel, I find the person who wrote the article to be a complete idiot.

The funniest part is that parents should be alarmed if your child requests an AMD processor and the explanation given. Damn funny...third world company using child labor...I almost fell out of my chair.

The scary part is that there may be a parent reading it who beleives it verbatum. The scarier part is...what if it is YOUR parent?

. Are you finding programs on your computer that you don't remember installing?
Your son will probably try to install some hacker software. He may attempt to conceal the presence of the software in some way, but you can usually find any new programs by reading through the programs listed under "Install/Remove Programs" in your control panel. Popular hacker software includes "Comet Cursor", "Bonzi Buddy" and "Flash".


Ok, for one thing Flash, bonzi buddy and comet cursor is not hacking!!! God!! when will these morons learn about this shit :rolleyes:

8. Is your son obsessed with "Lunix"?


He refers to 'linux' as 'lunix'!!! HAHAHA!!! What a 'modern' father... I'm glad I'm not his son... My dad has been WANTING me to install linux on a computer to see what it's like...

They use child labor extensively in their third world sweatshops, and they deliberately disable the security features that American processor makers


haha...


Bonzi Buddy thing was a classic.

[edit]Just another quick note about struggling academically, I would think hackers are very smart and alllll, they would have to be... Smarter than your average sports guy, at least. Just a thought.. this article is a fake anyways[/edit]

Jebus... if that guy was serious, I am truly terrified of him. That level of ignorance can't be fought. It can only spread to other idiots, locking and loading their feeble minds with nonsensical ammunition. I got $20 right here that sez he's either catholic or a jehova's witness.

Actually Jehovas Whitnesses Are pretty Cool I crached a Brew With One of my wifes Co workers, Seems that they respect others religions all they do is tell people about theirs due to a passage in the bible that stated that Jesus whitnessed to others. I thought that was cool He didnt think less of me because I am Pagan and he didnt try to convert me either just stated what he believed and I respect them for that. Now Christian Fundamentalists scare me cause the ones I met were al like Your going to hell and I'm gonna send you there.
