Hiiiiiilarious. Reminds me of a story from college. Not quite as funny, but here goes:

While taking a class on scientific ethics a few years ago, a friend of mine was blackmailed (for simplicity's sake, I'll leave out those details) into proofreading this kid's paper about the Manhattan Project. As you might imagine, blackmail is not fun, especially during midterms. So to get revenge my friend replaced the words in an inspirational quote from Einstein near the end of the paper with the phrase "I can lift weights with my Kegels". Needless to say, Einstein rarely spoke about his Kegels.

Luckily for the blackmailer's GPA, our TA wasn't angry, and didn't even take any points off. But he did share the erroneous paragraph with the entire class. Now that's revenge.

Yeah, that was Jack when he was sober. Get a few drinks into him and he was good for about a weeks worth of fun. I know he's looking down here laughing right along with us because I know he found most of his stuff that he pulled just as funny as we did.

Come waste your time with me

Hehe, sorta ironic. I saw Congo on TV the other week, made me think of this thread.

Good stuff...

Oddly enough, I found this thread via Google...it's the first result if you search for 'robot apes with lasers'. Classic.

Ahhhh...this thread still makes me laugh every time I read it. The reason this is the first Google hit for "robot apes with lasers" is because Jack was probably one of the most unique people in the world, and therefore, it took a mind like his to think this up.

How are you guys searching that? I'm not seeing this thread within the first 10 pages of results.

Actually, I didn't search it...I just didn't do my fact checking before posting and I just went off of what SpecMode said. I can't find it either.

Well, after some experimenting, I found that if you search for:
"robot apes" lasers
...it's #1.

Hrm...on my computer, using that exact search term (without quotes, sorry for not clarifying that) brings up this thread as the #1 result using both the Safari search box and Google's search page.

Hmm. Mind posting the Google URL that is generated when you search?

So strange... I still get no AppleNova in either. Weird!

Chock it up to good old fashioned server gnomes, I say.

Hrm...I guess I'll have to chalk that up to (quasi-)intelligent search engine behavior...I did include AppleNova as a search term in a few searches in the past few days; maybe it remembered that and it influenced my search results. Good old Google.
