    ...you write a wallpost on a friend's FB using bash programming (and friend knows literally nothing at all about computers, just uses them).

    ...you skip sex with wifey (etc.) because you can't solve a problem in your box.

    (Maybe the last one is too much, but I did it at least twice).

    Backups are amazing. 99% of data loss can be prevented by spending less than $100 on an external drive.
    If you have seen an error, there is a good chance someone else has, too. Google is your friend.

    A friend of mine used old AOL CDs as coasters. At least they were finally good for something
