I, Stevie-O, am promoting an entirely new system, where two plus two equals FIVE.

<h4 id="Chuck_Norris_as_a_Refactorer"> Chuck Norris as a Refactorer </h4><pre>&lt;Su-Shee&gt;  2010 is planned more or less as a refactoring year.
&lt;DrForr_&gt;  A whole *year*? What physical plane of existence do you reside
           on?
&lt;Su-Shee&gt;  DrForr_: there&apos;s also bugs to fix and systems to care for and
           things like that. it&apos;s not that we&apos;re locked into the closet
           and a year later a new, shiny product is released. ;)
&lt;DrForr_&gt;  Closet optional.
&lt;Su-Shee&gt;  I&apos;m not a wonderwoman refactoring half a million lines of perl
           in a week, sorry. :)
&lt;rindolf&gt;  Su-Shee: Chuck Norris refactors 10 millions lines of perl
           before lunch.
&lt;Su-Shee&gt;  rindolf: hm. that&apos;s the reason.. I&apos;m not as hairy as chuck
           norris and I don&apos;t have a beard...
&lt;rindolf&gt;  Su-Shee: ah.
&lt;rindolf&gt;  Su-Shee: Chuck Norris also wrote a complete Perl 6
           implementation.
&lt;Su-Shee&gt;  rindolf: I heard, he already wrote Perl 7.
&lt;rindolf&gt;  Su-Shee: yes.
        *  rindolf wants to be as awesome as Chuck when he grows up.
&lt;Su-Shee&gt;  rindolf: I envy you. I&apos;ll never be as awesome without a beard.
&lt;rindolf&gt;  Su-Shee: heh.
&lt;rindolf&gt;  Su-Shee: it doesn&apos;t matter if you&apos;re rigid on the outside as
           long as you&apos;re rigid on the inside.
&lt;Su-Shee&gt;  chuck norris doesn&apos;t make mistakes.
&lt;rindolf&gt;  Su-Shee: Chuck Norris corrects God.
&lt;Su-Shee&gt;  rindolf: I&apos;ll apply as his secretary.
&lt;rindolf&gt;  Su-Shee: as Chuck&apos;s?
&lt;Su-Shee&gt;  rindolf: yes.
&lt;rindolf&gt;  Su-Shee: OK.
&lt;rindolf&gt;  Chuck Norris doesn&apos;t code. When he sits next to a computer, it
           just does whatever he wants.
&lt;Su-Shee&gt;  I&apos;ll tell my boss tomorrow. Chuck is who he wants.
&lt;rindolf&gt;  Su-Shee: Chuck Norris is his own boss.
&lt;rindolf&gt;  Su-Shee: if you hire him, he&apos;ll tell your boss what to do.

           &lt;xmler&gt;  How can I do &lt;a href=&quot;$variable&quot;&gt;blah&lt;/a&gt; in XSLT?
         &lt;rindolf&gt;  xmler: you can use &lt;xsl:attribute&gt;
         &lt;rindolf&gt;  xmler: or use ${...}
         &lt;rindolf&gt;  xmler: have you read the Zvon XSLT tutorial?
           &lt;xmler&gt;  rindolf: I&apos;ve read various resources; perhaps it&apos;s
                    the fault of XML::XSLT on CPAN
         &lt;rindolf&gt;  xmler: use XML::LibXSLT instead.
         &lt;rindolf&gt;  It&apos;s faster and better.
             &lt;Zuu&gt;  &lt;insert mean statement about XSLT&gt;
             &lt;Zuu&gt;  :)
         &lt;rindolf&gt;  &quot;XSLT is the work of Satan&quot;
         &lt;rindolf&gt;  &quot;It&apos;s the worst thing since non-sliced bread.&quot;
             &lt;Zuu&gt;  Hahaha :D
         &lt;rindolf&gt;  &quot;Mothers used to tell their children about XSLT to
                    scare them.&quot;
           &lt;xmler&gt;  Haha
             &lt;Zuu&gt;  That last one is good
           &lt;xmler&gt;  XSLT seems pretty cool
             &lt;Zuu&gt;  xmler, no no, that&apos;s not mean
             &lt;Zuu&gt;  you&apos;re doing it wrong
             &lt;Zuu&gt;  :P
           &lt;xmler&gt;  XSLT is too cool to be mean to :p
             &lt;Zuu&gt;  Hehe
         &lt;rindolf&gt;  &quot;XSLT is the number one cause of programmers&apos;
                    suicides since Visual Basic 1.0&quot;
&lt;tommy_the-dragon&gt;  lol
             &lt;Zuu&gt;  :&gt;
             &lt;Zuu&gt;  I could believe in that
         &lt;rindolf&gt;  &quot;The X in XSLT stands for eXtermination.&quot;
         &lt;rindolf&gt;  &quot;XSLT makes the baby jesus cry.&quot;
         &lt;rindolf&gt;  &quot;The only things worse than XSLT are Excel and
                    sugarless tea.&quot;
&lt;tommy_the-dragon&gt;  rofl
                 *  Zuu kinda likes Excel
         &lt;rindolf&gt;  Zuu: yes, it was a joke.
             &lt;Zuu&gt;  Noooh!
             &lt;Zuu&gt;  they are all true!
         &lt;rindolf&gt;  Now I&apos;m out of ideas.
             &lt;Zuu&gt;  i havent even had a single idea yet..
         &lt;rindolf&gt;  &quot;XSLT is what Chuck Norris has nightmares of.&quot;
             &lt;Zuu&gt;  Whoah!
             &lt;Zuu&gt;  wait.. that would somehow make XSLT cooler than Chuck
                    Norris...
             &lt;Zuu&gt;  Chuck Norris dont have mightmares
         &lt;rindolf&gt;  &quot;Confucius e says: &apos;XSLT made me realise humanity was
                    hopeless.&quot;
             &lt;Zuu&gt;  &quot;Even APL wont make friends with XSLT&quot;
             &lt;Zuu&gt;  yay, i maded one!
         &lt;rindolf&gt;  &quot;God considered using XSLT as the tenth plague of
                    Egypt, but thought it was too evil.&quot;
         &lt;rindolf&gt;  Zuu: :-)
             &lt;Zuu&gt;  Haha :D
             &lt;Zuu&gt;  that plauge one is awesome
         &lt;rindolf&gt;  &quot;In Soviet Russia, XSLT codes you. Badly!&quot;
         &lt;rindolf&gt;  &quot;Satan condemned Hitler for a million years of
                    writing XSLT&quot;
         &lt;rindolf&gt;  OK, back to work.
         &lt;rindolf&gt;  C - not XSLt.
             &lt;Zuu&gt;  :)
         &lt;rindolf&gt;  &quot;The KGB used to torture their victims by having them
                    look at scrolling XSLT code&quot;
           &lt;xmler&gt;  rindolf: lol, love the KGB + XSLT one
           &lt;xmler&gt;  rindolf: by the way, what&apos;s with the XSLT hate by the
                    way, is it some kind of meme? :p
                 *  Zuu gives xmler an XSLT interpreter written in XSLT
        &lt;Jck_true&gt;  I wanna make ASM code from XSLT
         &lt;rindolf&gt;  &quot;My name is Inigo Montoya. You forced my father to
                    write XSLT. Prepare to die! And be thankful I don&apos;t
                    force you to write XSLT.&quot;
           &lt;xmler&gt;  Ah for gawd&apos;s sake. Can&apos;t install XML::LibXML, it
                    says I don&apos;t have libxml2 (I do)
         &lt;rindolf&gt;  xmler: do you have the -devel package?
         &lt;rindolf&gt;  xmler: what is your distro?
         &lt;rindolf&gt;  OS distro I mean.
           &lt;xmler&gt;  rindolf: Debian 4.0
           &lt;xmler&gt;  Ooh, perhaps I don&apos;t actually
         &lt;rindolf&gt;  xmler: ok, then apt-get install libxml-libxslt-perl
                 *  Zuu have to go o/
         &lt;rindolf&gt;  xmler: maybe we should discuss it on #perl?

         &lt;rindolf&gt;  Zuu: and beware of stray XSLT code.
             &lt;Zuu&gt;  I will :P

&lt;Su-Shee&gt;  hm, I could make a nice shower gel with moose milk powder and

    &lt;Caelum&gt;  DrForr: KiTTy also has the PuttyCyg patch, and only needs
              the cthelper.exe from PuttyCyg
   &lt;pragma_&gt;  When you have attained true enlightenment of the ninja,
              then you too will become like the hidden tiger and will
              enjoy the pleasures of the crouching dragon.

<p>(This bit was posted anonymously to a pastebot on 23 March, 2011. It is placed her for posterity after some editing.) 
</p>
<p>Question: how can I switch off my TV? 
</p>
<p>What he wants to hear? For example: Locate on/off button your TV remote a press it. The button is usually red and located at the topmost line on the remote. 
</p>
<p>The #perl expert&apos;s answer: First, what do you mean with &quot;switch off&quot;? Define it first. Nopaste your TV, TV remote and the living room too. 
</p>
<p>After a nopaste: 
</p>
<p>Your room is ugly. And the TV looks terrible. Use <a class="extiw" href="http://www.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mr._Clean" title="wikipedia:Mr._Clean">Mr. Clean</a> on the screen, and clean your living room first. Use three cleaning mops instead of two. Use HDMI and never use scart (?) connectors, unless you really want to. Your TV remote has unreadable buttons, clean up first. You&apos;re a beginner, so read:

     &lt;buubot&gt;  Perl 6, unlike most people, is able to breathe in the
               vacuum of space. In fact, anything else would damage its
               respiratory system. Because of this, whenever it&apos;s
               visiting Earth, it wears a respirator, which resembles a
               kickass beard.
    &lt;rindolf&gt;  Heh heh.
    &lt;rindolf&gt;  Are all of buubot&apos;s wankit factoids about Perl 6?
    &lt;rindolf&gt;  He should have some about Chuck Norris, too.
     &lt;merlyn&gt;  fictional factoids about a partially designed, partially
               implemented, partially wanted language. :)
    &lt;rindolf&gt;  merlyn: yeah.
     &lt;merlyn&gt;  Heh - those are all Chuck Norris quotes with s/Chuck/P6/
&lt;dabreegster&gt;  rindolf: It&apos;s written in Chuck Norris, right
     &lt;merlyn&gt;  Chuck Norris writes code in Perl 6. Before Larry&apos;s done.
               And it works.
    &lt;rindolf&gt;  merlyn: Chuck Norris wrote Perl 6 in a day but then
               destroyed all evidence with his bare hands, so no one
               will know his secrets.

 &lt;Makoryu&gt;  (A vim clone in Perl)
 &lt;Su-Shee&gt;  good question. there&apos;s one in javascript :)
 &lt;rindolf&gt;  Su-Shee: actually , it&apos;s a vi clone.
 &lt;rindolf&gt;  Writing a vi clone is much easier than writing a vim clone.
 &lt;rindolf&gt;  Just like writing a Scheme clone is much easier than writing
            a Perl 6 implementation.
 &lt;rindolf&gt;  Unless you&apos;re Chuck Norris.
 &lt;Su-Shee&gt;  rindolf: darn.. he already wrote a vim in perl6?
 &lt;moritz_&gt;  no, he scared K&amp;R into writing it ;-)
 &lt;rindolf&gt;  Su-Shee: Chuck Norris is the ghost author of the entire
            Debian GNU/Linux distribution.
 &lt;rindolf&gt;  Su-Shee: and he wrote it in 24 hours, while taking snack
            breaks.
 &lt;Su-Shee&gt;  rindolf: yes, I know - he published slackware under the
            pseudonym patrick volkerding...
 &lt;rindolf&gt;  Chuck Norris read the entire Wikipedia. Twice.
  &lt;araujo&gt;  the second time includes fixing all its errors
 &lt;moritz_&gt;  but he didn&apos;t commmit his changes, it seems
 &lt;rindolf&gt;  moritz_: heh.

  &lt;araujo&gt;  Chuck Norris doesn&apos;t commit changes, the changes commit for
            him

 &lt;rindolf&gt;  Code is too scared of Chuck to be wrong.
 &lt;rindolf&gt;  It is generated right in the first time.

 &lt;rindolf&gt;  OK.
 &lt;rindolf&gt;  Of course everybody know Chuck Norris is a real programmer.
 &lt;rindolf&gt;  He designs machines by combining individual atoms.
 &lt;rindolf&gt;  Using his thought.
 &lt;rindolf&gt;  Atoms obey Chuck Norris.
