WiFi for passive-aggressives

December 30th, 2009 · 168 comments

When even leaving a note is too direct…you folks with wireless networks still named “linksys” or “trendnet” are clearly missing out on a priceless opportunity to piss off your neighbors.

Caitlin stop using our Internet!

please no more grindcore at 3am

Stop being so fucking loud.

plzstopfuckingsoloudly

We can hear you having sex.

(Thanks to submitters Paul in St. Paul, Stirling in Salt Lake City, Arcadiy in Seattle, Denise in Rochester, Sara in Berkeley, Liz in Austin, Breanne in Oklahoma City, and Payal in Pleasanton, California…all of whom, no doubt, have secured wi-fi networks. Right, guys?)

    I only wish you could hear me having sex. At least it would mean I was . . .

    The first thing you need to know about my sad relational situation is that it doesn’t even exist.

    Ooops, did I say that out loud?

      …Which could have, by anyone with a brain, been inferred from the first sentence, needing no (sad) explanation.

      Also, if you were really a geek “goddess,” you probably would have had sex by now. Probably with me, since I like the hot geeky types.

      GG,
      There’s a rotary control marked DGGC* on the east wall.
      Just turn it clockwise to about 7 and we’ll all be able to hear fine.
      It was in the “User Manual”, but y’all geeks don’t cotton to them much.
      With us as your audience, you’ll never fly solo again.
      And don’t worry a bit ’bout performance art anxiety.
      Jes’ do whut duz ya best and we’ll do the rest.**

      Well, Doom, the (sad) explanation was there in order to slip “First!” into the first post with a bit of subtlety. Perhaps too much subtlety. Perhaps I should have focused on irony a bit more instead.

      Jonathan, there is well-selected lycra, and then there is … The Unitard.

      They might even exchange the verbal correlatives of DNA modules and become “grindthumb” and “core”(or “grindcumb” and “thore”, depending on how long the process took).

    This is related to wifi snooping, and a little funny. Sorry, not passive-aggressive.

      rose,

      All archery metaphors aside (and don’t think for a second about how hard it was to leave Ronin Hood and Made Marian back in the forest), I suspect that Adam’s ‘enticing’ is primarily
      of the intellectual variety,
      because the whole process of
      taking the stiff arrow in hand,
      nocking it carefully,
      pulling it ever tighter,
      until with eyes
      (open or closed, depending on whether it’s regular or Zen archery)
      on the target,
      release occurs,
      isn’t the kind of thing
      most guys can handle
      without having what should
      be a moment of private disturb
      leak out into the office audio space
      whether with a bang or a whimper.

      rose,

      Were it not for the celebratory psychopharmaceuticals,
      you’d a got it w/o a hint, but here ’tis.

      First look at the shape of the text.
      See the bow ?
      If so, see the arrow ?
      The back of the head is at ‘or’ and the front of the fletching is at ‘Zen’.
      So, who’s the big arrow shooter on St. Valentine’s day ?
      Maybe in Oz it’s different, but here it’s Cupid/Eros.

      Whut wuz yew lookin’ at?
      Maybe the process of simultaneously reading the superficially archery-related words along with the other meaning had you visually engaged with a different spatial figure and ground relationship and getting a picture of a completely different shaft ? That was my primary image until I noticed the bow, at which point they became co-equal like those 50-50 optical effects.

      If you ever find yourself at witzends and in need of support,
      do this thought-experiment (gedankenexperiment)…
      imagine your noggin cut in half and then cut in half again,
      then look up (waaaay up) on the screen and ask,
      “Where in this world could I look for camaraderie?”
      Don’t worry, Dorothy. You might find the

      ty, LBD is a real, 5 month old colt with the personality of a Rottweiler who regularly tries to bite anyone handy, and gets smacked on the butt if he tries it with me. He seemed to slip so easily into conversation here with just a slight bit of digital enhancement. I spent several hours with him and his 17 pasture mates this morning, re-nailing fence boards that had been knocked down overnight. Apparently the New Year’s Party down on the farm was a real blast!

      Droves of obsessing gay fans would be a nice change from all my straight guy friends who get married and then disappear into some honeymoon sunset bliss scenario, rarely to be seen again. Honestly, it’s like some kind of epidemic, and I seem to be the catalyst for it in some way. You know, meet Geek Goddess, become good friends, hang out and do cool things together a lot, meet the girl of your dreams (not to be confused with the aforementioned GG) and live happily ever after, but don’t do cool things with GG so much anymore.

      Starting an account, CB? It starts with checking out a website once or twice. Then a user name. A comment here or there. First-name basis with the regulars. Then a full-blown account.
