Strange as it may sound, I have recently discovered that i have had transhumanist ideals for most of my life, and have begun to wander if such thoughts are more widespread than i had anticipated origionally.

Speak up brothers, you have nothing to lose but things you would want replacing anyway!

I have many negative and derogatory things to say about those beliefs.

But I do like the part about stamping out stupidity.

Is there a way we can just do that?

A chance to speed up evolution! But because you are human, a chance to really mess up, wiping out a large portion of your population and leading to an evolutionary dead end. :P

Isn't it a little silly to throw your hopes into the newest gadgets and treatments for the super-rich when half of the planet has never received a phone call?

Or "-rf /". I *think* that might be possible, but I'm not sure if that slash would be allowed. It would *definitely* cause trouble when deleting though.

And if you're at the computer of someone you really hate...

mkdir "-rf / horse-porn"

What happens when you make a file called "-rf" and then delete it?

Ever since getting a higher expense of internet, I have been intrigued by youtube. This was the first time I've seen this message.

This explains it better than I could. Basically, Unix-based operating systems interpret "delete -rf /" as "delete absolutely everything without asking first".

Ah, right, I forgot that one got deleted and moved. Okay, it was the first episode of Yu-Gi-Oh!: the Abridged Series, which is a high-quality parody of Yu-Gi-Oh using a huge array of voices all provided by the creator. It's what made Yu-Gi-Oh into an enjoyable form for me. =^.^=

Now it can be found here!
Every episode except for 1 and 2 is also still on YouTube, to my knowledge.

Edit: Fixed the link in my sig. =^.^=

If I make it an actual link, UBB rejects it due to the parentheses in it.
