Anders just sent me this, which engenders an immediate WTF response:

Open a Word document and type

= rand (200,99)

Press Enter

Be careful not to click on PRINT.

I am glad you said be careful not click on print. *laugh* That was truly odd.

of course.

Tried it again, nothing happens... *pouts*

Hmmm... I don't know what to tell you. If you're opening a Microsoft Word document and typing that line and then pushing enter, it should open up 212 pages of single-spaced text that reads "The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog" over and over. :)

What???!


I don't geddit, is something supposed to happen?

did you type the whole thing? including the = sign?

... the ... fuck? *laugh* How truly bizarre. If I had the Swedish version set up on my computer, would it do 200+ pages of the Swedish version of that sentence?

dunno :) I thought it was hilarious, though. too bad the sentence was so mundane. It would have been a lot funnier with something a little more...exotic. :)

Yup, you would. I got 218 pages of some Swedish non-sense. It wasnt the same sentence, but it was one that seemed to have all the letters of the alphabet. I didn't know most of the words (and have already closed the program).

The Swedish versions gives you:

Flygande bäckasiner söka hwila på mjuka tuvor.

Over and over again in two columns. But only 139 pages.

That's pretty cool! I can't imagine a (good) use for this, but still! :)
