To get PhD in computer science, do research and tortu… I mean, teach students.

It highly depends on where you are, who you’re dealing with, and what your opinions are. Take a look at 4chan: there’s no registration and no upvoting/downvoting system. In such place it’s difficult not to find a long thread with someone calling other “fagets” without a reason. People can say anything (well, almost anything…), and they will get away with that. Pretty much special place, both fascinating and scary. In Karma-based systems, like this one on KnowYourMeme, you can upvote or downvote (or do...
There seems to be many similarities all around the world. Every language has some words borrowed from English and we can easily understand some of them. In Polish there are many English loanwords, especially computer-related. Many verbs are created directly from English equivalents, but basically you can create a verb from anything: trollować – to troll, banować – to ban, hackować – to hack, spawnować – to spawn.

It’s very good you actually do something you wanted to do. I know a lot of people who had many good ideas but never fulfilled them. I’m afraid I’m one of them. For quite some time I’ve been trying to learn to draw. My first results were horrific and it was highly demotivational.

And I’m afraid of being judged which doesn’t...

One time in college, doc was showing us how to make backup of bootsectors using ‘dd’ in Linux console. Obviously, he had to give us root access. I was bored so I ran this command: cp /dev/urandom /dev/stdout to made matrix-like effect in console. When I stopped this command some characters were completely different. ‘E’ showed as ‘#’, ‘/’ showed as ‘R’ etc. Screen was so messed up I couldn’t understand a single line, so I had to reboot. That was so /dev/urandom.
F*cking magnets, how do they work?
OK, you’re enderman… in the middle of ocean and it’s raining. I wish I could turn everything into toaster.
Hmm… let’s see: - Make more scientific stuff, maybe publish something - Learn how to make good software documentations - Be more social - Stop worrying so much (I know I can’t do that, but whatever…) - Learn to draw
