Rockstarism #266 – The Ulterior Motive
#266 Rockstar: Mum. What's an error? Me: A mistake, something causing the computer not to work properly. Rockstar: You mean like a bug? Me: Well... Technically the bug causes the error message on the computer. Rockstar appears to mull this over... Rockstar: What's the worst thing a bug does? Me: Um... Probably wipe your data? Rockstar: <conversationally>What's data? Me: <thinking: ?! Thought he knows what data is> Information. Like when you can't watch video clips on Youtube anymore because the server no longer has that clip in its memory. Rockstar: <conversationally>Ok, what's the second worst thing that can happen? Me: Probably when you can't run programs - like when your Om Nom game no longer works. Maybe you can't start up the App anymore or it hangs. Rockstar: <conversationally>Ok, what's the third - Me: Oh come on. You're not serious, you don't really want to know that. Rockstar: Wha-at... Yes I do. Me: You want me to stop chatting with my friend on Whatsapp, don't you. Rockstar: Yeah.
