Imagine being fucking stupid
So there is this dude at school
He's fucking stupid, but pretends to be smart
Runs a Linux computer because he is "too smart for Windows"
It's Linux Mint
Does everything with a terminal
Seems OK so far
What he does to perform a simple action is despicable. First, he whips out vim. He types out one single line that he needs to execute, saves the file as bash and runs it.
Everyone is somehow amazed
I'm also amazed
At how stupid some people are

    Is it even a difficult command? Or something like ls

    @alexbrooklyn like I said, simple stuff like installing something from apt-get

    but does he know........ how to exit Vim
  • 21
    Me, being the smart ass I am, would do the same with a .bat file.

    Knock him down a few pegs.

    "dude that shit is such bloat"

    look vim addiction is a real thing, ok 🙄

    @hinst he looks it up. Every. Fucking. Time. Fuck.

    @metamourge please see attached image as a reincarnation of what will occur tomorrow at school

    You know, you could have told him how it could be done easier...
    With other words: Instead of ranting about his "stupidity" you could have easily made him a bit smarter.

    @Benedikt im 100% sure he knows what he is doing, but just posing. It's reasonable to rant about stupid people too, otherwise 90% of devrant with stupid coworkers or managers wouldn't hve existed

    At least it wasn't kali
  • 6
    This reminds me of an intern we have at work: he has Kali installed and you can see how fucking cool he feels when he's tapping away in his terminal

    In reality though, he only knows how to run a bunch of commands and beside that he just sits around staring on his phone all day doing none of the tasks he's supposed to do

    I don't see how he is stupid, he even knows how to use vim. It sounds like you envious because of the attention he is getting for doing simple stuff.
  • 1
    @reij well look, he clearly doesn't know how to use vim, because he Googles how to exit and save all the time. And I'm definitely not the kind of person to be jealous over attention. I'm just ranting at how do thinks that he is smart by doing something extremely simple by overcomplicating it extremely
  • 6
    @shoop knowing how to google the right way is actually smarter than knowing the hard facts. If he acts like he is smarter than others he is most likely dump, I agree.
  • 4
    Just simple commands or bigger lines with pipes and stuff? If the first, that's fucking retarded, if the second, I do that as well (although with nano)
  • 6
    @reji
    That's my whole point is that he acts like a smartass

    @linuxxx
    It goes something like this
    1) sudo vi
    2) i
    3) #!/bin/bash
    4) kill -9 1036
    5) *opens Chrome Canary* how to close vim
    6) Esc + :wq file
    7) ./file
    8) rm file

    @shoop Yup, fucking retarded.

    Can't even reuse the "Script"

    I mainly wonder if the "too smart for Windows" is something he said or if it's your artistic addition. Cause if he said that, he has his head way up his own ass. Because that's not a real reason to switch an OS like Windows...
  • 2
    Exactly.
    My great one-liner script
    "ls"

    MAGIC

    You sure he isn't just using ctrl+x+e? That would be a saving grace. Plus few know about that terminal function...
  • 0
    @TheCommoner282 nope, that's definitely vim

    @Hazarth it's actually not an artistic addition. This guy is a Linux addict all the way and back and will probably go on the streets soem day to go and ban Windows

    That adds up to alot of wasted keystrokes, he'll start rethinking such things the first time RSI rears its ugly head. lol

    Linux mint, lol

    @shoop That won't even work, you'd need an extra step "chmod 700 file" just to execute it 🤣
  • 1
    @LordPeeve he uses Linux as root all the time
  • 0
    Is he building a library of commands? In a folder so that he doesn't have to look them up later? And what would you use instead of mint?
  • 1
    @skprog he just writes his command to a file, executes it and then deletes the file, that's all.
    I personally use Arch, but Mint seems to be Ubuntu's ugly brother, I didn't try much of it
