.... when a girl ask you whether you would save a PC or her...and you ask for the specs on the PC

.... when you write an entire program in a dream...but can't find why the stupid code won't compile, and you keep hearing a beep thinking that's it's the compiler telling there's an error, while intead it's your alarm clock..

Both happened to me.

When you spend nearly twenty minutes reading the man page for eject (trying to find out why it didn't) instead of just pressing the button on the drive, upon which the disc emerges instantly.

true, but then the lot would need a FAT or an inode table, (i know, you get a card when you park your car, then swipe it as you go to find it and it will tell you where your car has been moved to (if it has been moved), and you would need a two partitions /handicapped and /normal to avoid the /handicapped spaces filled with /normal's cars
