Sitting on the bus updating my system.
Random girl: What are you using?
Me: Linux :).
Random girl: Ohh I use Mac, because that doesn't have viruses and can't get hacked!

*me waiting for a cliff to jump off*

    @darksideplease Just in case you're wondering, I'm not glorifying Linux or hating on Mac, I just can't stand people who tell are convinced that a specific platform can't get viruses or hacked or something (whether that is Linux, Windows, Max, BSD or whatever)

    @norman70688 This is a rant on my opinion uhm. And for that matter, I don't have facebook. But if you don't find this a rant, fair enough!

    @linuxxx even if she was a muggle: is it normal that girls start talking to you out of the blue on the bus?

    @darksideplease I get convos regularly when I have terminals open in public transportation yeah (girls, guys or whatever gender)

    @linuxxx when you open a terminal people think you're a computer superhero and ask for your help, it happens to me quite a lot

    Don't programmers always go on about needing peace and quiet? Then how come I keep reading about coding on a bus, train, etc. I couldn't imagine being able to do any work at all in such a noisy, crowded, uncomfortable setting.

    @QoolQuy2000 I'm a pretty extroverted guy tbh and as long as I have some music I'm fine in crowds etc

    A girl would never talk to a dev (unless they're a dev too)

    @DRHAX34 that's what I'm getting at. Either he is not interested or he should seriously use the opportunity next time to start a conversation

    @darksideplease In my case that's called a combination of low self esteem and fair of failure 😞

    You should treat these people as children. Don't abuse, but teach ;)

    @linuxxx just stay on the topic, even if it is muggle gibberish. Ask them what they do for life. Small talk. With one of them there will be a moment where you feel comfortable enough to ask for their facebook/number.
    I hope that helps.

    Respond back, "no viruses? That's perfect. I have herpes. Wink emoticon" -- if you don't say "wink emoticon" will probably come across as way too creepy.

    dating advise on devrant, now I've seen it all. πŸ˜…

    If an ugly random 16 year old pimple braced teenager would come talk to me while I'm on a freaking bus updating shit via my phone's 4G connection i wouldn't want to talk to her either, he nowhere stated he was attracted to her in any way. Most people you meet on the bus are not beautiful anyway , because them hot bitches get free ridez everywhere by horny fuckers with cars. πŸ˜‚

    @noisyass2 Finally someone who thinks about their own personal security. It's a first world problem too.

    Woah, you can talk to a girl 😲

    @ImNotAlfred because the perfect wife/gf has to be beautiful.
  • 1
    @Divisionbyzero yes, atleast she should be for you, or do you wanna lie to her if she ever asks you wether you find her hot or not.
  • 1
    @ImNotAlfred actually my wife knows that she's devils-piss-hot.
    But what I actually meant was that the 'hot chickz wich get free ridez' you talked about, in my experience are stupid nuts.
  • 1
    @Divisionbyzero unfortunately i have to agree with you on that point.

    @JsonC11 What about them? :)
  • 0
    @linuxxx it would be nice to see more woman doing Comp Sci. Treating them like "muggles" is not going to help
  • 1
    @JsonC11 True but if they are muggles, I'd treat them like muggles really..

    @JsonC11 Well I mean what good does it to treat a muggles like a techie person?
