This happened to me once too...

Well, date takes arguments (which fits) but it does not take redirected I/O. So the pipe would break and there would be no date. Of course, as written, the date is not really required, and mount would execute anyway.

fun.drno.de is a nice site, didn't know it ...

This one is brilliant, note the filename:

Speaking of Darwin:

And this site is also funny in it's own special way:

Yes, I confess, I like icanhascheezburger.com. Some of them are silly or overly cute, but many of them are quite clever.

I found this rather funny, be sure to read the comments though..

Personally, I'm rather upset that we only have ~116gb of mental storage space...

Still, I'll buy a neural USB cable when it's invented..

I have found this line amusing whenever I read it:

Ok, I've just seen another bit. I reached under the desk for my laptop bag, and my eyes rested on this on a box that used to contain, incidentally, batteries.

Which reminds me of the sign near my old job. It's very common for some of these corner food stores to have something else on the second floor.

The sign says
Hair and Nails
Deli Salad

(on two lines.)
I keep thinking that I should have complained, Excuse me, there's no hair and nails in this salada.
