Pathetic Scum Moron (02 Aug 2001 at 00:45)
For some reason I happened upon this bizarre page, the IBM shrine today. It's an anti-Macintosh page. (I'm not anti-Macintosh, by the way.*) Mostly it's really stupid (though, you've gotta love the 6 year-old propaganda and gifs) but there is one totally hilarious part I just can't bear but to share with you. It's funnier in the context of the page, but essentially he is listing off some things that "MAC" stands for (you know, like, "Mock A real Computer") and finally comes to:

1) Pathetic Scum Moron


.... ??? I'm not kidding. Go check it out.

* There is one thing you never want to do on a mac though, trust me, and that is program in an unsafe language (C, C++). This will be a totally different story with OSX, but with 9 and earlier, it's a world of hurt. (The deal is that bugs in your program can, and do, totally screw up the system because of the lack of protected memory.) But who wants to program in unsafe languages, anyway? [cyclone]

After four years, you might want some explanation. And that's precisely the relief I'm going to give you: "Pathetic Scum Moron" is an anagram of "Macintosh Computer", as the website hints at.

Yeah, I did figure that out after posting this, but it's funnier if it is just out of nowhere. ;)
