Funny observation I made...

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
I was in our school library on one of the computers and so I put a desktop picture of the new iMac on the computer I was using. Then I got off the computer. WIthin a couple minutes of being off a woman comes up to the computer and I watch as she removes the desktop picture! Now, the funny part of it is that the computer right next to me had the desktop changed, and so did other ones right near. So why when I put the new iMac as the background does it get removed within minutes?

Try this:

Take a screenshot of the screen, then edit out the menu bar in Photoshop. Move all of the disk icons of of the desktop, and then set the screenshot as the background.

It will be intersting, I promise.

Say what? These computers are just library computers. They don't have Photoshop.

Hmmmm, that bitch must have been a Wintel drone. I don't understand why she would take the picture off, that iMac is a work of art, very beautiful to look at IMHO.

If you want to see something real interesting, forget about the desktop picture thing (it's too much of a pain in the arse to take a desktop picture in Windows, anyways, because it won't automatically save it last I checked). Here's what you do: set the desktop to PORN. Not just any porn, but lesbian porn. Find some chick with a strap-on giving it to another chick. I can assure you the day you put up the porn will not be a boring day!

More seriously, maybe she took it off because she saw it as a form of advertising, and didn't like to have advertising on the computers in the library? What sorts of other desktop photos are on the other computers? You could easily test this hypothesis by putting up a desktop picture of a Dell...if that gets removed as well then you know it's not about Macs, but about putting products on the desktop as advertisments.

What were the other desktops...?

If she changed it becuase the others had patterns...

I could understand it more...

I am sure that librarians get very possessive...

they have no lives...

The other pictures were of I dont know......like a comic dude and then some people put sports things on some.

No way on the porn thing! Don't want to get kicked out in my last semester. Although some people downloaded porn on Kazaa.

Maybe she thought it looked too much like a boob, and was trying to keep from having offended parents whine and complain.

You need to see more boobs. Or at least some good ones.

Maybe Macs are too "sexy" for her? Is she sexually repressed and in need of a good man to make her feel like a woman? Maybe the Mac photos get her all worked up and she has trouble working?

I still think lesbian porn is the way to go. Two chicks, a strap on, and you on your way to the principal's office!

So what's the policy on downloading porn in high school nowadays? Is it a real serious offense? I remember back in college, in my dorm if I went down to the computer lab at night, there were often a group of gay men (3-4) looking at gay porn. Whenever they got a good shot of some dude's package they'd start getting all hot and bothered. It was pretty funny, although I though it lacking in taste to gaze at gay porn when other people were trying to work (I'm talking about a computer lab with about 25 computers, and 15 or so are filled, and over in a corner there's 3 guys downloading gay porn! LOL!!).

Funny thing, how women aren't as turned on by gay men as men are by lesbians. I know if it were a few chicks checking out photos of naked women, I'd be ready for action!!

Uhhh, sorry, I wandered off topic I guess. Pretty odd night. Must get to sleep. Keep hand away. Vision is already bad enough...

As someone who procters a lab full of lUsers, I must say I would have beaten you down something fierce with Teh Nerf Bat of D00m.

When doing something on public computers just remember to ask yourself this question: "Is this my computer?"

And it was probably part of the vast anti-Mac media/government/Catholic/librarian conspiracy.

Cover with pink coconut and you'd have those nasty hostess snowball cake things.

Those domes look like robotic horse hooves.

'Course, you'd have to chop the neck and flat panel off the iMac to make it look that way. And then you don't actually have a pic of an iMac anymore, just a dome...

The answer is simple, Microsoft offer for free a new firewall against all sort of attack.

Microsoft was wise, in this sanctuary of wisdom , the library exclusively fitted with PC, a terrible thing happend : a pornographic picture of a I Mac suddenly appear on the white screen (symbol of virginity) of the PC.
Luckyly, like a lawfull knight, the firewall, like a well educated dog, attack the ennemy immediatly and destroy the unholy symbol of pure evil : the I mac.
By this courageous act, the firewill prevented hundred of innocent souls to be perveted by the evil.
saint Bill Gates , pray for us ! Amen.

Haha like a week ago the librarian noticed I broke through their Firewall and got off the network and got all pissed at me. She stopped me in my tracks when I was going to leave and said "You won't be able to use these computers if you do that again". I was like Uh huh sure whatever. Funny thing is like half the things weren't on the school network.

The computers in our school are god-awful. Half the mofos won't even print or freeze when you go to anything. The other day I saw most of the one half had signs "This computer does not work" on them. Geez, if only the whole school was like that one room filled with the sweet scent of iMacs.

The new iMac looks a lot like Ziggo.

<a href="http://battlebots.com/meet_the_robots/meet_robot_specs.asp?id=85" target="_blank">Ziggo</a> just happens to be the #1 ranked Battlebots Lightweight Champion.

It's made out of a wok.
