Reminds me of a story I heard (possibly an urban legend) about a call received by tech support from their Hong Kong office. Turns out that the company was experiencing network problems on a periodic basis, and the employees had no idea why. When tech support asked how often it happened, the reply was that it always happened on the full moon.

The techs of course had a good chuckle at this, and ascribed it to some weird aspect of Far East culture. Turned out that the employee was right on the mark. The Hong Kong office was on the shoreline, and the servers were in a basement room. Flooding was not normally a problem, except when the moon was full, which resulted in a higher-than-normal tide. This caused a short, and the system powered down out of safety. After several hours, the system - if dry - would power up again.

Reasons why it’s worth to be a PC gamer in 2012.




- The hardest thing about getting a Mac is telling your parents that you're gay.

- If I had the choice between being gay and owning a Mac, I would rather be gay, because if I owned a Mac I would be both gay and own a horrible computer.

- Imagine a giant cock flying towards your mouth, and there's nothing you can do about it. And you're like "Oh man, I'm gonna have to suck this thing", and you brace yourself to suck this giant cock. But then, at the last moment, it changes trajectory and hits you in the eye. You think to yourself "Well, at least I got that out of the way", but then the giant cock rears back and stabs your eye again, and again, and again. Eventually, this giant cock is penetrating your gray matter, and you begin to lose control of your motor skills. That's when the giant cock slaps you across the cheek, causing you to fall out of your chair. Unable to move and at your most vulnerable, the giant cock finally lodges itself in your anus, where it rests comfortably for 4, maybe 5 hours. That's what using Mac OSX is like.

Who knows? Although I doubt how acurate the story is, it's from the Inquirer. lol Good story though, I love that last paragraph, it's beautiful.
