Make sure to read through comments. Funny stuff, if you know even the basics of the regular expressions.
Today at the office, over the morning coffee, I somehow remembered that I had a few of those really horrible, scary t-shirts when I was a teenager. (I still have plenty of black t-shirts, but the subject changed from music to geek humor.) It took me a while to remember the name of the band for at least one of them – Kreator. The t-shirt that I had was with the cover image from the “Coma of souls” album. Here it is (mine was all black though, without red squares).
And this post wouldn’t be complete without a music sample. It does show a bit of age, but, I think, it’s still quite listenable.
Here is a little something for the next time you’ll decide to upgrade your wardrobe.
The moment I saw that phrase appearing in my Google Reader (here is some info about ThinkGeek feeds), I wanted to buy this t-shirt.Â Even before I saw the actual t-shirt.Â Even despite my total ignorance of nanotechnology.Â It’s just so hilarious and true and makes so much sense at the same time!
It came to me that geek t-shirts aren’t very well suited for gyms and other places crowded with strong people. Geek t-shirts tend to be a little offensive and aggressive. Here are a few examples:
- “Bow before me, for I am root.” – nobody cares enough to read all of it, and “bow before me” sounds offensive enough.
- “Go away or I will replace you with a very small shell script.” – has the same problem.
- “I see fragged people” – “frag” is not a wide spread word, and it’s often misread as another f-word.
- “I’m blogging this” – “blog” is a very wide spread word, and it can get you killed. Especially by women.
- “You are dumb” – OK, you can ware this, but never ever answer the question “What does this mean?” truthfully.
It’s good to know that sports-ware manufacturers realize this problem. That’s why they make t-shirts with just their brand labels – “Nike”, “Adidas”, “Reebok”, etc.Â These aren’t even real words…
