    When you say 7/10, what does that mean? Like the higher the funnier?

    Are you kidding? 7?
    Surely a 9?

    Besides, what's to discuss? It's just a funny post in response to some n00b nonsense -- no need to analyse it.

    I think this reply deserves at least a 7 for its zen-like minimalism and elegance.

    If I were making a rock garden for meditation out of Macrumors posts, it would certainly be my Okinawa.

    But I do like the Fortune 100 CIO article. I wonder how many Fortune 100 CIOs have ever seen anyone *use* a firewire port! :p

    That was certainly a surreal collection, Ani. :rolleyes: I knew there was a reason I made a decision to only read one thread about being gay on MR. :D

    hehe :D It had to be done. Those threads are a pointless waste of breath for everyone involved, and we seem to have to go over it all again, and again....and again.

    ..yes it is, not it isn't :D
