Am I the only one who strives for the "I'm a big, badass, paramilitary hax0r phreak" image?
It's just not cool until people wonder if you're carrying an AK-47, a butt set, or a laptop, or a combination of the 3, and they fear all the possibile combinations of said devices, tools, and weapons in your more than capable hands.
Is anyone with me here? We could start a militia of disgruntled techies. That would be sooo leet. My parents would be so proud seeing me on 60 minutes brandishing more weapons than some foreign governments. :->
Actually, they'd probably never talk to me again, but hey. Either way, it's a fun goal.
And in case you're wondering, yes, I am insane this morning. w00t!
