computer-generated order to start a new landfill on your front lawn
or your quota is reduced to 4K.", to: "I don't need to crack
/etc/passwd because I just modified su so that it doesn't prompt me.

what I just said, this category does NOT apply to you!" Getting
paid for it!

My tendencies on this issue range from: "It's the best show around.
I have all the episodes and the movies on tape and can quote entire
scenes verbatim. I've built a few of the model kits too. But
you'll never catch me at one of those conventions. Those people are
kooks.", to: "It's not just a TV show, it's a religion. I know all
about warp field dynamics and the principles behind the transporter.
I have memorized the TECH manual. I speak Klingon. I go to cons
with Vulcan ears on. I have no life."
