Duck and Cover redux

With much appreciation to Andrei (I make it sound like we’re on a first name basis) and his linkblog, I would very much like to share with you the reason I was laughing hysterically at work today. Reminds me of the hype about duck-and-cover in case of a nuclear holocaust.

I say, if you see a flash or a mushroom cloud, you’d be better off reciting the shahaadah than following these techniques which are frequently considered to be ineffective. Alhamdulillaah their effectiveness hasn’t been tested yet, though, and, in shaa Allaah, never will be. Let’s just hope they remain tools for spreading paranoia, fear, uncertainty, and doubt (FUD) and never enter into practical usage.

    I’m using Fedora Core 6 as well and an ATI Radeon x1600 agp… Though the problem I am having is I am getting absolutely no video after booting into FC6. Any thoughts?

    No problem. At least it’s not spam (I have dozens per day, but Akismet keeps ’em away!)

    I will show this to Abu Hamzah and see if he laughs hysterically. I sure did.
