Fun on the terminal

There is no place like ~

I mount my soul at /dev/null

Sex, drugs, and UNIX/Linux

If you are stressed out, burnt out, depressed, or feeling increasingly overwhelmed, why don't you just chill out, man, and have some fun on the terminal?Worry not, let me suggest you some ideas:

  1. sudo visudo.
  2. Add this line at the top: Defaults insults.
  3. Empty the cache, so it invalidates the users’ cached credentials entirely: sudo -k.
  4. Test it, just mistype your password: sudo ls.
> make love
make: *** No rule to make target 'love'.  Stop.
> whatis linux
linux: nothing appropriate.
> aptitude moo 
There are no Easter Eggs in this program. 
> aptitude -v moo 
There really are no Easter Eggs in this program. 
> aptitude -vv moo
Didn't I already tell you that there are no Easter Eggs in this program?
> aptitude -vvvvv moo
All right, you win. 

Fun with vim. You may need to install it: sudo apt install vim -Ubuntu-; sudo pacman -S vim -Arch-. Open it (vim) and type: :help 42

What is the meaning of life, the universe and everything? 42, Douglas Adams, the only person who knew what this question really was about is now dead, unfortunately. So now you might wonder what the meaning of death is…

  1. Download the bash-insulter script.
  2. Copy the script to the /etc folder: sudo cp bash-insulter/src/bash.command-not-found /etc/.
  3. Edit .bashrc (vim .bashrc) and add:
if [ -f /etc/bash.command-not-found ]; then 
  . /etc/bash.command-not-found 

user@pc:~$ pt

  Dropped on your head as a baby, eh?
  If ignorance is bliss, you must be the happiest person on earth.
  This is not Windows

zsh: command not found: pt
 tty-clock -c -C 7 -r -f "%A, %B %d" # Credits, https://hund.tty1.se
