Things you just don't get - Page 1505

post #22561 of 24845
I have this problem of perception whither I learn something new, then I feel like it's something everybody in the world already knew and I'm a buns-head for not knowing it. For example, "wow I can't believe I didn't know how rocket engines worked that's something everybody in the world knows it's so simple!"

Every hacker in every movie types away, but no one ever clicks anything. What's up with that?

This new line of expensive stuff from Champion with highly visible logos. Champion is like a Wal-Mart label isn't it?

Just another old brand trying to revive its image with higher quality control (meh) for street and athleisure. It also helps that notorious french fashion label, Vetements, made an over sized hoodie with their label in the Champion font.

Because they use a command line based operating system like Linux.

Why do people say clean as a whistle? Whistles are kind of nasty really...

I thought it was because the old steam whistles must have been clean, right? Because dat steam would be constantly cleaning the insides ?

They are all wrong though...except maybe the Matrix.

The real answer is usually like...type line of text. Hit Enter. Some stuff scrolls up the screen. Say "hmmm." Press up a few times and change a couple letters in a previous line. Hit Enter. Google something. Scratch head. Press up and add a few more letters. Hit enter....

Half of it is already done when the clip starts...but that's basically it.

Doubly funny...because people love to use the scrolling text "matrix" shit as indication of technology and hacking...when that's the weird fictional fantasy part. What she actually does is "real" hacking.

Looks for a server out there running an old version of some software with a known vulnerability.
Once she finds one, runs a script that uses that known vulnerability to break into the system.

Whole thing could have been avoided if that sysadmin had run his software updates...

"Bruschetta? These are just stale bread slices!"

I hope Schnucks isn't selling stale bread slices. Someone should report them to the authorities if they are.

I had to google "Schnucks" because I had never heard of it before. It turns out to be a grocery chain in the Midwest, as I had surmised.

Grocery stores have the dumbest names. shnucks? Publix? Piggly wiggly?

Ralph's? Sure the founder's name must've been Ralph but now you are selling food under a name that is synonymous with vomiting.

Winn Dixie? Well Dixie didn't win!!! Ahaha sick civil war burn
