Amusing google page


I'd missed google very much, since the recent myDoom variant had taken it down this afternoon and was testing to see if it was back up by doing a search for something random. I'd done various ones throughout the course of today like" test", "hello", "hello google?", but this time I searched for "TEH GOOGLE". Not only was google back up (yay), but the first hit I got was a page from the google's website which was absolutely priceless:

That is scary. I got through the first and last paragraphs and that took several minutes. I'm still not sure what this is supposed to be: "1n+E9r1ty" .... integrity? I still find it funny as hell that it's a real page.

I was just happy I couldn't read it like normal English. It took me a while to read the whole thing. Great page. I will use that link the next time someone dr0p5 1nt0 H4x0r m0d3 in a post.

I glad you posted that Capt_Caveman, for 2 reasons,,,

1, its funny, my eyes kept crossing trying to read it
2, It gaves me the chance to ask this:

Every now and again I see somebody "dr0p5 1nt0 H4x0r m0d3" (as Pcghost so perfectly puts it) Im wondering what is the point of this, and what are they trying to prove.

Please dont, scorch my keyboard too much,
I just dont get why ppl post like that in a generalised Linux forum

typing like that proves beyond doubt that you are a super hardcore visual basic scipt fugative hacker, and the government has you at the top of the super secret most wanted list for the billions of $$$ woro of damage you latest feidish virus caused... the virus that took mothes to write.. and is soo powerfull, so ingeniouse, then its never been detected by a virus scanning company.. or maybe, they know about it.. but dare not add it to there database because they fear you so much...

behold the virus... for its source code is.....

Code:
@echo off
echo "echo you smell like poo" >> c:\autoexec.bat
echo "echo hit any key to admit that you smell like poo" >> c:\autoexec.bat
echo "pause" >> autoecec.bat
echo "echo hahaha, you admited it.. you smell like poo !" >> c:\autoexec.bat

"H4x0r Google"

I was browsing google, and in the language tools there is a language called "Hacker". If your lazy here is a link (Link Here). The entire google site is written in "1337".

I love how people argue this all the time.

The term Hacker vs. Cracker.

Even though we know the difference you're just going to have to accept that to the public there will always only be one name...

HACKER

Deal with it

I know this sound dumb but would anyone bother to explain to me what does "1337" means?
I came across this "word" quite often recently....

And is that really a language?

What about "H4x0r"?

That's "leet-speak" (elite speak) which often replaces certain letters with numbers to sound like a complete retard. 1337 = elite, H4x0r = hacker. Typically used by the script kiddies to try sounding cool, but avoided by any self-respecting IT professional wishing to have a career outside flipping burgers.
