Cops suck. Answered

First of all, I am going to say this out of experience and not from memes or from public opinion. Two days ago, I changed a shortcut icon to redirect to another website on a school computer. Well, I got caught after someone fell for it, and then the teacher told me that I could get in serious trouble for it. He got some cops to tell me how bad it was, and afterward, I was wondering how stupid they were. First of all, they said I shut down the system. I did not do that, I just changed the link. Second, they said I was "scarier than a thug with a gun because I could hack their computers and get all the passwords". I can do no such thing, what makes them think that a simple prank automatically makes me a "1337 hax0r"? Then they said I could be arrested for just that prank, but they decided to let me off because I was not aware of those rules. Cops suck. (at least the ones in this area do) EDIT- It seems like my email to the teacher completely backfired. The teacher COMPLETELY misunderstood the point of my message.


once i got lost in a tornadoe (when i was just 11) along with all but a total flood and i was a mile away from home,my mom called the cops   idiots who took 3 cars of them not being able to find me until i was less than 30o ft away from my house!!! yep cops stink

Your cops suck. Well, mine does too. While we're on the subject, let me share my own blasphemous experience with cops. Had a little fight at the beginning of the month with my current girlfriend's ex. He apparently wasn't too happy with his breakup. Jealous of me, he grabbed a razor (I know, this dude needs to pay a visit to the mental hospital) and made a (fortunately) shallow cut in my right upper palm. I got mad so I performed a joint lock in his hand and stabbed him with the back end of a color pencil I just happen to carry. It hurts a lot, but no real damage was done. A passing-by cop happened to see this and he almost arrested me, so I said to him, "Did you not see the f#$(ing razor that he's carrying? Did you not see the cut in my upper palm?!" (In Indonesian of course). He did arrest my girlfriend's ex but only after going to a deep thought and thinking "who should I arrest?" for 15, yep that's right, 15 whole minutes.

Yep. Oh, here's a picture of my new girl, she and I go way back.... We used to be best friends in grade school but she moved to New Zealand. She came back to Indonesia last month and transferred to my school, and she fell for me when she saw my band play Blink 182's "What's Her Name Again" (explicit song, but I just say "bleep" when a swear came up). Wow, that's off topic, hope you don't mind... P.S. That fat dude isn't me, it's her dad.


I never heard anyone say bleep in a song before to cover a swear word, but I guess it's better then just silence. She looks (Thinks of a word trying not to get you mad) very nice.

just gotta say: wrong its not better than just silence. bleep would just ruin a tune.

Well, if it was a short swear word, I'm sure he would say "BLEEEEEEEEP!" Also, you can stay in tune by saying bleep as you would say the swear word. Also, imagine a song where a swear word takes up more than just a few seconds, or even in the start of family reunion, the beginning is just swear words, so a long silence would seem to me a bit awkward.

Or replace the offensive adjective with another word (e.g. "very") in a sanitised version. I agree that both bleeps and silent spots suck, if you want popular airplay do something popular & clean. If you want to retain artistic integrity, leave it as it is.
Of course that isn't how marketing popular music works....


if you want popular airplay do something popular & clean.
i don't think Izangi Telos likes The Jonas brothers or Hannah Montanna...

Neither do I, but "popular" tends to be like that, bleeping / silencing stuff to get into regular airplay is positioning yourself in the same area really, although this is more like spreading your product wider in real terms. L

I always smile when I hear the radio version of Lily Allen's It's Not Fair - the word "head" is replaced with a cheeky harmonic tweet.

Then I wonder what the radio version of track 8 would sound like...

Wait. Wait. Hang on a sec. Kiteman listens to Lily Allen? >Head 'asplodes

My favourite bit of song bowdlerisation comes from Cake's Nugget, where the line "shut the (blank) up" is rhymed with "learn to buck up"- it's like they wanted it to be as blindingly obvious as possible what the line was, even when censored. I think in the "clean" version they replace it with the word "huff", which ruins both the rhyme and the sentiment, but that's censorship for you.

Have you hear Prince Buster's Big Five? Even with the trumpet-blasts it's still adult, but tip-top-quality Ska. (hence minimal link)


The clean versions of Biggie's songs suck, all they do is just replace the censored word with silence, which results in the song almost being an instrumental because half the words got yanked. 

Are you familiar with Prince Buster? The trumpet-blasts in Big Five work rather well.
! other language!


While I was there I also reminded myself how good "Chase the Devil" (Max Romeo) is, and a bit of Jimmy Cliff...


No. I was saying No problem to your Thanks.
Wait, what does no problem have to do with liking Blink 182?

I see. I never heard any of the songs (Besides in that one Simpsons episode) My sister likes them however. She went to one of their concerts this summer.

Oh yeah, I remember that episode. Bart ran away from home and he temporarily lived in an apartment with Tony Hawk. They hold a party together and Blink 182 was playing "All The Small Things".

Bart didn't run away, he legally got emancipated , and moved to a loft. Tony Hawk-"Hey, Blink 182, turn it up!" Lead singer-"We have names you know!"

cool pic. looks old fashioned though, how old is it?

.....5 months, actually. The camera quality probably just isn't that good. That's her (my girlfriend's) profile picture on facebook.

Ouch...sound painful, but how did she manage to deeply cut you with a razor? was it a blade itself?

Not "she", he, my girl's ex =) And yeah it was a razor blade.

Ah.(did you swear at the cop? by what is seems at the quote. :P)


8 years ago

When they (Big Brother/Sister) know that you know the system very well, they will keep you from the system. When our school first got computers they(the big bothers/sisters) were very lax with computers, now that we the students have learned the system they have become strict.

I pranked the fourth grade gifted teacher's computer a few years ago and I got away with nothing.  Same with sixth and seventh grade.  

I would have stopped, and explained how what i have done is harmless...and is not a hack, but simply changed the target of a shortcut...
(also, what was the message?)

my computing teacher sucks, I had just started a new paragraph in this poster thing and she stars yelling at me because it wasn't positioned properly, so I said back to her that I had just put the text box in and that I had only just started typing, so she then says to stop lazing about and get on with your work, even though I had done the most stuff out of the whole class an was almost finished, You know I just wanted to punch Mrs *******'s head in at that point. she is a first class controll freak!

Agreed. And what is with your signatures? Are you parodying Lemonie?

oh that part, it just shows who the person who said the quote was, in this case me

I tend to concur with Logic's maxim, he is right with that one.


It my quote of the week, I post them in forums every week now.
