Why are all Macintosh users jerks?

Recommended Posts

What's really sad is when a guest speaker who has worked long and hard on a presentation finds out that his Mac laptop doesn't connect up so well to a PC-based organization's system. And how is it that's all the organization's fault? Hel-lo.

Isn't that the truth, same goes for Linux. Why attack small markets when you can attack the windows community which is huge. That commercial does need some small print stating this. lol


Life is like a clam. Years of filtering crap then some bastard cracks you open and scrapes you into its damned mouth, end of story.

Demand to see life's manager. Make life rue the day it thought it could give Cave Johnson lemons. Do you know who I am? I'm the man who's gonna burn your house down! With the lemons. I'm going to to get my engineers to invent a combustible lemon that burns your house down!"

Is that also the reason why you're not mod anymore?

No, that's because Jim is a dirty snitch who ratted me out. :)

Would it be prudent to post to Maddox's Apple article?


"Of course the people don't want war. But after all, it's the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it's always a simple matter to drag the people along whether it's a democracy, a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism, and exposing the country to greater danger."

This is a perfect example of another problem. Not just people being jerks, but the reason behind it. You see, Being a jerk isn't what mac people are known for, being a jerk is what you know mac people for. I think one of the biggest problem, is that some people have just not come into contact with the right people. If all you ever comes in contact with are jerk mac people, then of course that will be your opinion of them. Is it a correct opinion? Absolutely not, but really, can we blame you? If you're only exposed to a certain kind of person, you begin to assume that that's how the majority of them are. The media will do this too. Show you a worst case example, and people take it as the norm.

 

 

Part of the problem is that the jerks on all sides of the computer argument, are usually the most vocal.

No, that's because Jim is a dirty snitch who ratted me out. :rolleyes:

Actually, Jim tried taking the blame upon himself and sent a credible threat to the mod team that caused me to curse his name and tear apart my system and rebuild it to counter the 'threat' he posed. :thumbsup:

 

His trying to cover your ass actually caused me to even more secure my rig. Not sure I'm going to thank him for it though :wink: .

Sure.

 

It was a conspiracy of Jim to get Tarna to destroy his old system so he would be forced to get a new rig at the cost of Kaftan's good modship lollipop which in truth a total fabrication.

For those of you just tuning in, it's also important to know that Hades usually doesn't know what he's talking about, and this case is no different.

Kaftan the amazing was the best mod ever using the secret alias of "Authority". Later, Gabrielle the goth was made mod using a secret name Dark Raven. This was supposed to be secret. During this time a league of gentlemen formed of which kaft and Jim were members. Jim asked kaft if gabrielle=dark raven and kaft looked into the sacred book of IP-adresses and found it was so. There was much rejoice but Jim accidentally mentioned that it was the kaft who had leaked the secret. Jim tried to save the situation by saying he hacked the kafts account, but the green dragon knew the truth. And the kaft was demoted, but given an awesome title "Obsidian VIP" instead, and there was much rejoice. Jim got banned 4-5 times after that and is now hiding under a new secret name.

I don't know who this "Jim" is, but I bet he has one hella ugly face.


I was raised by polar bears. I had to fight against blood thirsty wolves and rabid penguins to get my food. Those who were too weak to survive were sent to Sweden.

 

It has made me the man I am today. A man who craves furry hentai.

So let us go and embrace the rustling smells of unseen worlds
