This makes me mad:

With all teh silliness around teh forum today, I thought I would bring a downer to this party.
So, What do u guys think? I know a few of us r in teh IT field.

If u want some updated info, Lifehacker did a good report:

Protect ur windows PC from teh Conficker Worm


Make sure ur protected.
 

The word is spelled "the", not "teh".  Honestly, I don't care about other spelling or grammar mistakes, but this has always bothered me.  It makes it seem like you're intentionally misspelling the word to seem cool or I don't even know what.  It's not like it's an abbreviation like "ur", I can at least understand that one, it's the same amount of letters...

As for Conficker, it seemed overhyped.  I had it on my laptop, did a quick google search and it was gone within five minutes.

I'm not mad at Sub, I'm mad at that the April Fools day joke didn't fix itself.

You might not know me very well, but I put a lot of work into my posts. Yes, it was funny on April 1st when all the posts where like that. However, when I had to go back and change my post the next day, that just ruffles my feathers.

I'm a person who spends a lot of time looking up computer problems on the internet. I hate it when I find a message board that has my same problem, but all the reply's are all junk. Or thrown together offering little help.

That's all I wanted to say. I'm not yelling at anyone, and I'm not mad at the mods. I just wanted to say that.

Thanks guys.  :)

South Park has been consistently funny for the last three or four seasons. Their brand of political satire is top notch.

I can't say I've ever really found Family Guy actually watchable for more than an episode at a time.

But at least family guy doesn't get up it's own arse about messages. So who can tell which show I'm really putting my alligence with.

I... that's.... no.  The episode had a point, that there's a double standard in toilet humor.  To compare it to an episode of Seinfeld... have you ever seen the show?

Yes, I've seen Seinfeld. At least 98% of that TV show's run was set in that same stupid cafe with Jerry and George going back and forth saying the same damn thing in different ways. "I'm out!", "You're out?", "I'm out.", "Why are you out?" "I'm just tellin' ya, I'm out. *Explaination of why he's out*", "So you're out. Great." "Yep, and it feels great to be out there!"

Lather, rinse, repeat, for just about every single joke on that show. Blech, it didn't go off the air soon enough...

As for the double-standard, it's... Not one I've ever seen. Fart jokes involving women are often met with even more laughter because it's considered that women "don't do that". There's no double standard because both genders can do the same act with a modicum of responses, depending on the person reacting.

It felt to me like some silly little discussion they'd had at the office one day that'd upset some female employee and they did this whole "Women's Empowerment" bit to try and placate them.

I just know what I like. Didero's post, for example. That, I liked.

So, I'm a college student, and I live in the dorms.  When you are my roommate, there are a few simple rules.

Rule #1:  Do not drink the last of my juice.

Rule #2:  DO NOT DRINK THE LAST OF MY JUICE!!

Rule #3:  If you do drink the last of my juice, don't leave evidence behind.  Like, say, the empty bottle and your bag of sugar that you used to sweeten the stuff.  You tasteless, mooching piece of trash.
Probably not a Goat, either.

Next container of juice, taint the last bit. Some random non-toxic fluid, salt, etc... Stay away from bodily fluid, that can get you in real trouble.
