A Sign of Nerdiness


I was writing an email to a client when I noticed my email signature was in the wrong spot. I selected it, then copied it. Next I went to paste it in the correct spot, but pasted what had previously been in the clipboard. Apparently I haven’t obtained the skills to press “ctrl” and “c” simultaneously. Anyway, the text that was pasted was:

EventDispatcher.prototype.addEventListener = function(type, listener) {    
this._listeners.push({“type”:type, “listener”:listener, “target”:this});

Let’s face it, when you go to paste seemingly harmless text and are repremanded via a slap of code to the face, you need to come to grips with the fact that you may have become so nerdy that there is no chance of ever becoming a normal human being, ever again. Embrace it, this is not a bad thing. You have attained a level of geek majesty that some only dream of and if the stars aline, maybe we’ll see eachother at a nearby Startrek convention..
