formula for hell on earth...

on Feb 21, 2003 at 18:18 UTC ( #237524=perlmeditation: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

Just browsing Slashdot (yes, I know...). In the comments page of the Lawyers Say Hackers Are Sentenced Too Harshly article I found this gem of a quote:
THAT FAT GUY WITH THE UNKEMPT BEARD AND THE WIERD SHIRT THAT HAS THE FORMULA FOR HELL ON EARTH:

#! /usr/bin/perl

ON HIS SHIRT IS DEFINITELY GUILTY!

Whole Comment

Made me think. Maybe ybiC has a dark twin brother - ybiS? - who goes around wearing a T-shirt saying:

#!/usr/bin/perl chmod 0666, '/etc/passwd' or die;

Can you tell it's friday? :)

    You know of course, that the T-shirt from ThinkGeek that has Camel Code on it says on the front:

    #! /usr/bin/perl -w use strict;
    Yes, I'm a proud owner of one. And non-technical friends used to ask "What the heck is that" quite a lot. ;-)

    At least it wasn't the
    perl is my bitch
    shirt.

    #!/usr/bin/perl
    chmod 0666, '/etc/passwd' or die;

    Goodness, now *that* would be a t-shirt I'd buy in an instant. Maybe this should be suggested to ThinkGeek - if enough people support it, I'm sure they'd do it. :)

    So, how about it, fellow monks? Would there be demand for an actual shirt with this on it?

      You can get iron-on transfer "paper" for your printer. The stuff is opaque with a white base, so it should work just fine on a black shirt.

      For a project I did, I used individual pieces of the 8x10 stock with figures cut out and put all over the shirt, rather than just a single "page" in the center of the front and back. So, don't worry about the size of the stuff.

      What I really want is a whiteboard shirt that I can customize on the fly...

        Well there is always David Clare's LED T-Shirt. With that you could have your favourite JAPH scrolling by for all to see :-}. I don't think its available yet, but he does have a backer now so its only a matter of time.

        Remember that amateurs built Noah's Ark. Professionals built the Titanic.

        Iron-on transfers sound nice, but I'd need a printer for that, so that's not an option right now (unless I would shamelessly want to waste company resources by using one of our office printers ;)).

        A white-board shirt would be really cool, too, of course; however, I'm too lazy to build one and too impatient to wait for one. ;) Looking into various online printing services didn't yield much yet, either, unfortunately - there are lots that will happily print even a single t-shirt for you, but I haven't been able to find one yet that allows multiple lines of text *and* non-proportional font like Courier *and* doesn't limit line widths in a way that disallows things like chmod 0666, '/etc/passwd' or die;. Well, at least one I found says that almost everything they do is negotiable, so I'll send them an email inquiry about these things.

        Apart from that, I guess I will continue looking tomorrow (really need some sleep for now), and if I don't find one, I'll just bug ThinkGeek about it until they give in. *g*

        Speaking of the cafepress store, is there any chance for different variations on designs? For instance, I like the design on the hoody, but I don't like hoodies, and would rather have it on a tshirt. Is there any chance that this could happen?

        As a matter of fact, no, I didn't know - thanks for the pointer. Apart from that, at the risk of asking another stupid question - does cafepress offer printing on black t-shirts? I don't really think this'd look good on a white one (not that I particularly like white shirts, anyway).

    How about "chmod 666 /dev/earth" ?
