accidental wisdom

I just noticed that something I posted on Slashdork a while ago was summarized as:

70%  Overrated
30%  Funny
Total Score:  0

I guess that's me in a nutshell, isn't it?

    Look at you in your new shirt! How could you BE so cocky?! Who do you think you are, putting on such airs! You really blew it this time! You are so ARROGANT!

    It's better to be overrated than not rated at all.

    What there's no cuteness score?
    I mean honestly, it's the only reason I listen to anything you say.
    yawn.

      The women of Netscape IT (ie, both of us) once voted jwz as the prettiest guy in the company.

      • violentbloom says:

        Yeah but I was biased. Also if I recall correctly my flatmate didn't work there yet...and he's pretty cute, but the accent helps, unfair advantage of course.
        And jamie definately *had* better hair.

        Remeber that article pimping out Lou as being sexy?

    70% - That jwz guy isn't so cool. I'm much cooler than him. I'm gonna mod him down to prove it!

    30% - Who's jwz? What's Netscape?

  7. Ahhh, the more I deal with young programmers, the more I realise that there ain't no teaching 'em. Too cocky to listen to the horror stories of yore. Wind up doing it all over again.

    I much prefer listening to your stories of gore. Entertains the hell out of me. :-)

      Oh, young programmers listen. And are quite entertained.

      Not that we learn anything. We will make every single mistake we've laughed at others for making.

      Occasionally, we make the mistakes twice.
