Put down the chocolate covered banana



  • I'm sure you've all had cases of people coming up to you asking "how do I accomplish task X using tool Y?" where not only are X and Y completely unrelated, but it would be a physical impossibility to use Y to do X, and there is no possible way a normal human being could have possibly arrived at Y by thinking about X.

     

    With that in mind, I bring you What is the ICQ Number for Firefox?

    Keep reading beyond the first post. It gets weirder and weirder.

  • Meh. He confused ICQ address with IP address, but that's hardly a WTF.

    Now, the extent of his failure to communicate with those trying to help him may be, but hardly surprises me.



  • I would just like to say I saw this when I posted, and I didn't think it was too bad. I didn't consider it WTF-worthy. It's just someone thinking they know more than they actually know about something. Plus the Straight Dope messageboards are really sharp, and they handled it perfectly.



  • I think I know exactly what was on his screen and what he's trying to do. It's a particularly good malware that hijacks web sites and presents a very convincing "OMG your computer is infected with a virus!" The OP is trying to download a fresh copy of Firefox because it's his home page that's infected and he thinks it is Firefox which is the problem.

    I've had a couple of my own sites attacked by it and I still don't know how it gets in to modify the HTML code on the web server. The payload always includes a URL redirection like globalpoweringgathering which is the actual site serving the fake virus scanner.

    I think the OP's confusion is entirely understandable given the sophistication and quality of the fake virus scanner.



  •  Cool term. My son had a literal chocolate covered banana last week, which of course meant we had a chocolate-covered toddler!

    I think he's been giving them the chocolate covered banana for some time now.

    Soon followed by a toddler-covered banana, I hope.

    There's two ways to interpret that: the violent, and the sexual. Both are depraved beyond belief.

    WTF? You missed the most obvious interpretation, which is that the toddler ate the banana. Which brings up the question: Why is blakeyrat depraved beyond belief?

    Oh. Uh. No comment.

    I guess I just assumed nobody would ever write a post here that wasn't at least a little sexual and/or depraved.

    Even if it's about toddlers? ... The fuck you think we are?

    "Depraved and beyond belief" do not even start to describe the fact that you (allegedly) only came up with /only/ two ways that you came up with interpreting it, let alone the /first/ two.



    I'm going to go with you deliberatly misinterpreting stuff. Again. While trying, and failing, to be faintly amusing.



    And/or trolling. But I repeat myself...

    I think you meant to point out that from the banana's perspective, being eaten is incredibly violent, right? A common typo, the keys are like right next to each other.



  • I don't get what "toddler-covered banana" is supposed to mean at all, if anything.

    I didn't care enough to spend more time with the concept.
