    Yeah that too but with a honeypot you get the added bonus of redirecting people who want to leach to nimp.org

    My neighbor asked me where to connect a USB mouse once, so I took off the case to his desktop and unplugged a bunch of shit, and then stuffed the USB cord somewhere inside so you couldn't see the plug, and closed it all up. When he asked why the computer stopped working, I just laughed at him, didn't even fix the computer.

    I was letting my old man use my computer. Suddenly he burst into the living room all pissed off yelling about how my crappy computer never works. His USB flash drive didn't show up when he plugged it in. This case had no front USB ports so I proceeded to look at the back of it. Surprise, he managed to jam a flash drive into a free ethernet port. Try it, it takes some force to get it to fit in there. I then proceeded to shut down the computer and told him to use his work laptop.

    I love it when someone asks you why the desktop has its lights flashing, but the monitor isn't doing anything. "Is the monitor plugged into the computer?" "No... sec" Then, about 5 seconds later, "Thanks, Stephen!!"
