In such a moment I'd rather explain Quantum Physics to a Gold fish 馃悹 At least it can not reply with dumb questions.

Tbh a goldfish might actually pay attention to you longer and doesn't interrupt you halfway either

The Most Common:

Friends: You are very tech savvy, which brand pc do u own

Me: Its not a pre-built, the computer shop custom built it for my budget specifically聽

Friends: But which pc?

Me: Shall i tell u the specs?

Friends: What are specs?

Me: The Specifications of the computer

Friends: Then tell it

Me: Pentium G630.......(tech blabber)聽

Friends: wtf are u talking ?

Me: My pc specs聽

Friends: But which pc is it?

Me: Which pc do聽u own then?

Friends: (They usually just say the brand of the cd drive or the case)

P.S i also have very tech savvy friends as well and i only talk tech in front of them so that this doesn't happen

And i always have people having heard fake tech news and asking me about it which is like the most annoying thing ever and they keep saying that if i use a vpn to play pubg pc lite, police will catch聽and arrest me!!!! LIKE REALLY???

1. My school spent much money on buying teachers Macbook Pros...The only applications teachers use are MS Office Products, and Chrome. Also a teacher聽 calling an Acer Alpha 12 a Surface Pro.

Me: Why don't you just buy some XPS laptops or something?聽

IT: They aren't good enough.

Me: dafuq

2. We have a max of 20 Windows laptops/desktops in the school. 10 Acer Alpha 12's, 10 Surface Pros, and a grand total of 2 desktops...both for librarian/actually knowledgable IT person聽use... The rest are Macs or standard-issue Acer R11 Chromebooks...*Scream*

O O F. I can't wait until AMD launches their 7nm processors, when they can FINALLY assert a definite performance and efficiency advantage over Intel. Tell your peers that an SSD will make their PC faster (because it does).

DM me and I can mail you a working HD 7790 that I don't need.


I can crash a computer in 30 seconds by running a .bat file with the contents %0|%0.

I can crash a computer in 1 second by yeeting it.

I also now have about 7 GB of viruses on an autorun flash drive.

Fuck the jackass Android devs that put in a toggle to disable automatic update systems that don't do anything.

At least Microsoft's hidden setting has a 'will not work with x versions' in the description in GPE.


Yup the yup.

So yesterday my science sub struggled to get audio over HDMI...the projector didn't have speakers.

I've seen someone try to put RAM in a PCIe slot and they broke their RAM聽and the PCIe slot.

"I have an RTX 4080 Ti"

"I have a Core i11"

"i9-9900K is trash, it can't run Minecraft."

"What's AMD? Some RAM making company?"

"What's Corsair?"

"My PC is 27 inches!"

"480p is good!"

@Schnoz聽Ask and you shall receive.

Funny replies to all of those:

1. Well, I聽guess聽PCIe bandwidth is pretty good. If SSDs work on there, why won't RAM?

2. 680 times 6 equals 4080, so聽maybe he just did a 4-way SLI and glued a few more on top.

3. Core i3 plus Core i3 plus Core i5 = 3 + 3 + 5 = 11

4. Ah yes, did you make the whole world out of TNT on max settings and set it off? Or more likely, are you missing a dedicated graphics card?

5. When AMD starts ripping Intel to shreads with 7 nanometer chips, you'll know.

6.聽image.png.6ac783429ae72e76d19696a13bb042eb.png

7. So is my dick. And my graphics card. I use both like swords.

8. Sure, if you have an IBM Monochrome Display Adapter.

Stuff like this makes my day.

"Here is some advice that might have gotten lost somewhere along the way in your life.聽

#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut;聽and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

Follow these simple rules in life, and I promise you, things magically get easier. " -聽MageTank聽31-10-2016
