Campus Crypto Geek Humor

26 September 2003 19:53

Lina had this geek moment going on in one of her classes recently. (Warning: Geek humor ahead!)

We were in the Network Security class and the subject of the lecture was cryptography when the professor caught one of his students reading the newspaper.

"Excuse me sir, but if you want to read The Exponent then I will have to ask you to leave the class."

In full confidence the student answered, "I'm sorry sir, but I was looking at the 'cryptography' section and I thought this applies to what we are learning today," (Note: The cryptography section is part of the puzzles section in the newspaper along with the crosswords - both a hit with the students during mundane lectures).

The rest of the class started to snicker at his remarks when the professor smilingly continued, "And what kind of cryptography would that be?"

With a smug the student replied, "That would bestream cipher cryptography, sir!"

Acknowledging the student's wit, "That's right. You have a quick mind, young man!".

He let the student stay on till the end of the class.
Quick witted smart ass geek indeed!

or maybe some people have this thought rather than allergic syndrome....
" it takes a minute to find a special person
an hour to appreciate them
a day to love them,
but an entire life to forget them. "
