    Like when you are downloading something and if you don't watch the speed thing then it will go down, and in school there was one where the computers were really slow to load and it was believed that if you predd F and D repeatedly it would load qucker.

    Back in 1992 or so I saw a post in usenet by some tech support people that said that in about 10 years most people with computers would believe any stupid goddamn thing you told them about them. It came true.

    sometimes when ppl are desperate to accomplish things, they feel as though some kind of compulsive event that takes place in the process is the catalyst for sucess. Like when I was trying to start my car during the snow season I pressed the power lock switch and it cranked. No way to see if that did it until the next dead battery event. I could rant and rave that this was the trick.
