DIABOLICAL GENIUS REVEALS PLAN FOR WORLD DOMINATION

Postby pootman » Mon Oct 29, 2007 6:36 pm

And for once, it's not Microsoft!

I'm sure you've all read by now Mike's seemingly-facetious blog entry here.

You probably just skimmed over it, thinking it was innocent enough, but I saw through it, and the jig's up Mike, because I'm going to unveil your diabolical scheme right here, right now!

Diabolical Mike wrote:33. Converts CO2 to O2"


As anyone who knows their chemistry will tell you, CO2 converts to C+O2

So now you're wondering where the C went, right?

So did I, but when I opened up my test box, there was no soot, no graphite, and certainly no diamonds. So I started to wonder just what Mike could possibly mean.

Then it finally struck me - Mike is a diabolical evil genius. The "CO2 to O2" statement was a thinly veiled guise for his master plan because, like all evil geniuses, Mike had to surreptitiously reveal his plan in advance, in order to feel more superior.

Mike is using MikeOS to take away C+
Without which there will be no C++
And MikeOS, with its assembly-coded sneakiness, will be the only operating system left.
Bill Gates and Steve Jobszniac will watch in horror as their empires disappear overnight, leaving nothing but MikeOS.
Then Mike will unleash his final masterpiece - the £400 non-GPL'd Service Pack 1 - an optional upgrade, required by anyone who wants to continue to use their computer.

And Mike Will Rule The World


I bet you're all thinking this is just some paranoid delusion, but you're all wrong. It was all revealed to me by Alan Turing, who came to me in a vision, after I knocked my tin-foil helmet off, when I banged my head on the cupboard door.

I think you re seriously underestimating his power there.
He is no mere moderator.
He is ADMIN.
And holy is his name.

So, no change there then, really, you'll simply be baffled by a different language.

No, really, honestly, Mike, it was supposed to say "DEIFIABLE GENIUS REVEALS PLAN FOR WORLD LIBERATION".

It must have been a keyboard error.

Actually, a rather busy day here.
Attended an old freind and neighbour's funeral, got home and a message to say my daughter was in labour, drove 75 miles to take my wife over.
Get home, and I find that Mike is taking over the world.

Oh well, he can't do much worse than the present lot.....as long as he doesn't expect to be worshipped on Sundays.
I have an hour free on Wednesday evenings, might be able to fit him in between Susan and Offler....

Just got a phone call. It's another false alarm.

Wait, I think I've got it.

You know how if you get a hundred monkeys with typewriters and enough time one of the monkeys will produce the complete works of Shakespeare? Well, once you factor in statistics and probability, if you repeated the experiment many times you would find that the time required varies, and as well as the near-average results you would also have some near-infinity results and some instant results - occasionally the monkeys will produce the unlikely result on the first bash at the keyboard.

So, Mike, what's obviously happened if that one of my kids must have been bashing at the keyboard while I wasn't there, and in line with the statistically unlikely monkeys, has managed to create this topic, along with the first post and poll question, by sheer chance.

So there's really no need to ban me. Hurrah.

And even though, as I've just demonstrated, it had nothing to do with me anyway, according to Duck Theory if it looks a diabolical plan for world domination, and it sounds like a diabolical plan for world domination, then it probably is a diabolical plan for world domination. So it's all really your fault, Mike.
