Computer Characters
« on: October 02, 2008, 08:26:28 AM »
Question: Where do the characters go when I use my backspace or delete them on my PC?
Answer: The characters go to different places, depending on whom you ask.

The Catholic Church's approach to characters:
The nice characters go to Heaven, where they are bathed in the light of happiness. The naughty characters are punished for their sins. Naughty characters are those involved in the creation of naughty words, such as 'breast' and 'sex and contraception'.

The Buddhist explanation:
If a character has lived rightly, and its karma is good, then after it has been deleted it will be reincarnated as a different, higher character. Those funny characters above the numbers on your keyboard will become numbers, numbers will become letters, and lowercase letters will become uppercase.

The 20th-century bitter cynical nihilist explanation:
Who cares? It doesn't really matter if they're on the page, deleted, undeleted, underlined, etc. It's all the same.

The Mac user's explanation:
All the characters written on a PC and then deleted go straight to PC hell. If you're using a PC, you can probably see the deleted characters, because you're in PC hell too.

Stephen King's explanation:
Every time you hit the <Del> key you unleash a tiny monster inside the cursor, which tears the poor unsuspecting characters to shreds, drinks their blood, and then eats them, bones and all. Hah, hah, hah!

PETA's explanation:
You've been DELETING them??? Can't you hear them SCREAMING??? Why don't you go CLUB some BABY SEALS while wearing a MINK, you pig!!!

Ha! I'd never seen this one before!

I send an AWFUL lot of naughty characters to be punished for their sins-- either that or PETA is going to be knocking on my door and tossing buckets of ink all over me pretty soon.
