the lonliest number

From WWdN: In Exile:

I have a sticker on my car that says, “There is no place like 127.0.0.1” I get to explain it to a lot of people, and I’m usually rewarded with a blank look, followed by a pitying look, followed by parents holding on tightly to their children as they move away slowly at first, then quickly, never turning their backs on me.

Such is the life of a geek among normals.

My pal R. Stevens, creator of the always-awesome Diesel Sweeties comic, has a new T-shirt with a different take on the 127.0.0.1 joke that hit a little close to 127.0.0.1 for me: “127.0.0.1 is the loneliest number”

There will be 10 kinds of people in the world: those who get this shirt, and those who don’t.

ROTFLMAO!

The funniest part of that is the final line. If you get it, you pass the test and get to retain your geek card. If not, turn it in at the closest gateway.
