OMG...

Sad part is, I'm sure these actually have been asked...

Some of them by my parents. Although my mom's much more computer savvy now...

I swear...

Dad: Are there sites with trains?
Me: Yes, Dad.
Dad: So...Probably a dozen or so...
Me: *facepalms*

Keep in mind when he actually did go on the computer, he looked for one of the railways and got lesbian porn. Rule 34, I guess.

He's currently obsessed with Google Earth.

I don't have problems with porn, but dammit, don't just throw it in there without warning me!

I used to watch that show, but I lost interest in it.... Super news just isn't what it used to be, no no *sings*

Well, or I just got bored of it always being the same thing. Yeah, more likely.

The worst was in high school when my then-boyfriend and I were doing a project on parakeets and we ended up with porn. ARGH!

Yes, good advice from The Oatmeal, as usual.

Some good advice for sure, I didnt take me long to really learn about computers to be honest. I hope at some point its all just common knowledge, cause I cant date someone that asks stupid computer questions. Even one of my exs thinking that the hard drive is the heart of the computer without it the computer wouldnt turn on..I couldnt stand that and that isnt to bad since youd have to know all about the insides of the computer.

I'm no expert on computers by any means...But I ask what I'm not sure about. I'd rather let people know that I'm ignorant about stuff and willing to learn than try to pretend that I know and come off looking like an ass. Tried doing that when I was younger...Never again. :lol:

Yeah id prefer people ask, though in my ex's case it wasnt sure what she thought but when she did ask..she didnt really get and kept asking and I only have so much patience, I dont mind teaching people, i had no problems when i was doing customer service for Nintendo and helping people get there routers and what not set up properly.

I am a computer fu-reak. I can't date guys that aren't good at hardware and software. I would just laugh at them.

I like being able to talk to with friends/significant others about things I enjoy, but it's not a requirement for me. :)

Well building your own computer is the only way you can go, I prefer to know what im putting into my system and what not..hate pre built.

Yeah im a guy who needs a girl to really be into most of what im into..very picky I know but ive dated a wide range of girls and it just doesnt work unless theres enough common interests..im way too passionate about way to much, if it was one thing, it might be ok. But alas I dont think ill find that girl.

If I ever build a desktop, I may source my friend Todd to help me.

Seriously...I was cleaning up a friend's computer and she had an expired antivirus as well as a bunch of extras she had downloaded without meaning to. Silly me put Avast on and didn't delete McAfee then couldn't figure out why the internet wasn't working. So I figured it may have been because of one of the toolbars I took off, so I had him take over...Simple fix, really, lol.

I need to buy that man dinner for putting up with my stupidity. :oops:
