A little joke on a regular day

What did the optimist say when he jumped off the building?

“So far so good…”

I saw a reference to this joke in an article I was reading. The article suggests that the joke first appeared as a New Yorker cartoon. An online search pulls up the following cartoon.

Okay, now I want to know, what are cullies?

cul·ly
/ˈkəlē/

noun, informal, archaic

plural: cullies

(often as a form of address) a man; a friend.

Origin: mid 17th century (denoting a person who is imposed upon)

So I have not only enjoyed a joke, but I have also received an education!

Yes this is the very finnish way of opening a door. Everybody should learn it like we do.

Not enough emphasis on avoiding the sill - or what happens when you don’t!

I know you don’t see them in Finland much - but what about a door with a knob? How about Star Trek doors? Sliders? French doors? so much left unsaid…

From the article: "The students taking the module are warned that it “addresses challenging issues related to violence, gender, sexuality, class, race, abuses, sexual abuse, political ideas and offensive language”.

That’s not a warning, it’s a recommendation :crazy_face:

Reminds me of the “fact checking” that’s so popular nowadays :smile:

What’s the toughest part of being a vegan arch user ?

Apparently, keeping it to yourself.

Sadly that’s gone in version 1.7:

  • --my-next-gpu-wont-be-nvidia has been removed, use --unsupported-gpu instead. The Nvidia proprietary driver remains unsupported. See b48cb6b for details.
