well this is the post that keeps me off the pedantic crap spilled out on this forum... 25 pages eh?

the most non hacker thing.. I'm a believer in every ones a hacker or artist or what ever, you just have to be stupid enough to forget it. but then again a lot of people are talk, some times I feel I'm just talk. I don't know not every one gets to grow up with sociopath Mormons for neighbors or a 386 for child's toy.

now I'll spare you all the work I'm doing now... but please answer me whats it like to kiss a girl? whats vagina taste like? why do US senators cloth naked female statues? here's a new question besides (whats a hard drive do?) why are titties considered pornography? and if your strait or gay do you ever think the things you can create will attract you some tail or head or hell booth if your bi? besides the need to put some one down with your own ignorance what the hells the point in these 25 page long summaries that in fact lots of people don't care to know crap about electronics.

Oh, I got another one. This was several years ago when I used to work for RatShack (RadioShack).

One day, I was trying to sell a cell phone to a lady. Well, it so happened that we had brochures for phone plans in both English and Spanish. The customer was an English speaking person. I accidentally picked up a Spanish brochure and flipped it to the page where the plans were. That's when I realized that the brochure was in Spanish. I told the lady: "Oh, oops, this is the Spanish brochure." To which she replied: "Well, at least the numbers were in English." :facepalm:

I want to bump this thread, surely some of you have had some new run ins with wannabe hackers. I got a new one


I was talking to my electronics teacher about a voltage divider and we got into talking about the quality of resistors and I said "Well radio shack doesn't have any black band resistors, and I don't want to special order 2 resistors on the internet."

Then the kid next to us listening says "Well why don't you go get some from walmart?"

:roll:

couple days ago this little twerp tried to get into an argument with me over how the xbox 360 works. he tried to tell me that its so powerful because it has "Like 200 gigs of ram".
me: "more ram=/= more powerful. anyway, the 360 has 512 mb of ram."
him: "no, how could it play games? it has more ram! your stupid."
me: ":facepalm: the amount of ram is a nonissue. what matters is the speed of the ram, and the other components, like the gpu, and cpu. also, the speed of the communication between the mobo and the disc drive is a big part."
him: "you retard. a gpu isnt even a real part! you are just aking stuff up, trying to sound intelligent!"
me: ":facepalm:
9000
him: "what?"
me: "GPU...... G. P. U. .....GRAPHICS PROCESSING UNIT."
him: "you mean video card? lol!"
me: "you no nothing. this conversation is over. *walks away*" :wtf:

I had a customer who was looking for a gamepad to use on the computer, although she called them something else (gamestick? something like that). As we don't carry any specifically for PC, I showed her the XBox 360 controllers, as the wired USB type would work. She decided on an off-brand one, as it was $15 cheaper. "Besides, it shows a computer on the package, so it will definitely work."

It was actually an image of the XBox 360, but I didn't argue the point.




Oh, and earlier today, somebody called looking for original XBox games. :roll:

What is really worse is when a guy comes into the store confused and mumbling.
Customer: Im lookin fo a stick.
Me: Well if you want I can break one off a tree in the back. What size do you want it in?
Customer: Dude I want a stick for a p2.
Me: Isn't P2 a movie?
Customer:......
Me: If you want here are a few controllers. The ps2 controllers are in the yellow package.
Customer: Oh here the sticks..........
Me: :facepalm:

Friend: You ganna take 360 controller parts and solder it together.
Me: *Trying to understand the logic*

Me: *If he only knew*

Friend: When I turn on my PSX, it stays on the insert PlayStation disc screen.
Me: Did you put a PlayStation game in?
Friend: Yes
Me: Is it an original?
Friend: Yes
Me: What game did you put in?
Friend: God Of War
Me: Why did you put God Of War in a PSX?
Friend: Aren't Playstations suppose to read any playstation games?
Me: *Face Palm*
