Run xeyes.

Astound your friends and Apple store employees by running xeyes!
</div>

I was in the Bridge Street Barnes & Noble over the weekend, reading as much as I could for free, the best way to enjoy periodicals. I picked up MacWorld and read this tip:


Type /usr/X11/bin/xeyes & at the X11 command-line prompt, and you’ll open xeyes...


As the Apple store was just behind Barnes & Noble, there was no way I was going to wait to try out this little trick. I walked right in to the the black Mac Books, executed the command, maximized the application and walked out gleefully giggling like a schoolgirl while the concierges tried to pick their jaws up off of the floor.

Uh? Remember that not everyone in your audience understands what you are talking about dear.

What in the world is this thing that you are talking about using to baffle Apple Employee's? What is the purpose of this command?

Interesting.

No wonder you were giggling with glee at the genius of reading books and having the sense of humor to put it into direct use immediately after reading said book.

The joke that has to be explained isn't funny. :(

It is still funny.

You're a dumbass for assuming that I would understand that.

As a reminder; women don't come with a manual because men should be smart enough to realize that all actions are based upon some form of emotion. I don't think I know a single woman who thinks logically.

For those of you in Huntsvegas: Men: Logical + Women:Emotional = Men being confused and wishing they had user friendly manuals that came with each woman with step by step "this is what to do when X happens" for every situation.
