if you're ever about to be attacked by a linux user you can stop them in their tracks by simply asking them about linux, their nature will force them to explain it to you at length. It's like throwing seeds on the ground so a vampire has to count them all

@slightlyflightyone oh aye, like how the count in sesame street loves counting. It's a thing

@snakeboy okay. o.o

I guess I need to start throwing more handfuls of seeds. This sounds adorable.

@slightlyflightyone @snakeboy i think this part of vampire mythology is tied to vampires as antisemitic canard :(

@slightlyflightyone sucked some of the fun out of the global lizard conspiracy too, hey ho

@slightlyflightyone @snakeboy it's cool, i'm not even sure this is the case now that i look into it

but obv european vampire mythology has a history of links to antisemitism and to me the counting-seeds thing has uncomfortable resonance with eg. the idea of the miserly coin-counting jew

@slightlyflightyone @snakeboy anyway i think this is a good tweet and i laughed, however i feel the need to clarify that Linux is in fact pronounced GNU/Linux, and indee

@six @slightlyflightyone I'm thinking I might just start calling it Lunix in an effort to be even more annoyingly ignorant about it tbh

@operand @six @snakeboy Because it’s brought up, I just wanna take this moment to express my strangely controversial perspective that systemd is fine actually.

@slightlyflightyone @snakeboy as a person who has Linux on their laptop, and is allergic to garlic, and definitely not a vampire, i am far more attracted to untangling knots, because i cannot count

1 2 3 4 6 5 8 7 9 8 7 9 10 11 12 13 16 17 19 18 20

wait, did i miss one?

@slightlyflightyone @snakeboy i appear to have missed one,

❰meena❙~❱✔≻ echo 1 2 3 4 6 5 8 7 9 8 7 9 10 11 12 13 16 17 19 18 20 | wc -w

but it's really hard to know which one!

@gannet I believed it until I saw your link and an article on the same site says "9 reasons vampires can't exist". I no longer believe this.

@snakeboy "I was thinking about installing Oracle®️ Linux™ on my macbook air, so I can be Enterprise Ready, what do you think?"

@snakeboy this is good strategy. The phrase “best distro” is often a great way to have them turning in circles.

@snakeboy Can confirm, this is a fact. Please do not abuse this power. -_-


alternatively, tell them "you can run (any game) on windows, it's easy, but it's NOT POSSIBLE UNDER LINUX"

this may cause them to explode.

@Nikolai_Kingsley @snakeboy any game on windows? psht. windows can't even run super tux cart

@snakeboy I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you’re referring to as Linux, is in fact, GNU/Linux, or as I’ve recently taken to calling it, GNU plus Linux. Linux is not an operating system unto itself, but rather another free compo
