Cool or nerdy as hell?

What do you reckon?
And no, I'm not thinking of buying one, just saw them and couldn't decide what I thought of 'em.

As you'll see I'm also taking this opportunity to prove, with my poll options, how hip and down with the kids I am. Word.

Re: Cool or nerdy as hell?

Oh, I'm so annoyed that I didn't make the poll public. I wonder who thinks they're 'whack'?
I reckon it was Mr Orange. Dunno why.

which sounds better:

My Fiat Coupe does 0-60 in six seconds

or

My Fiat Coupe does 0-60 in 0001001000100010000*

*or whatever

And I think you have your answer.

Re: Cool or nerdy as hell?

Good point G, although I think the big sticking point with them is that when someone asks you the time, it'll take five minutes with a calculator before you can answer.

i know that whack means bad..(bad as in bad and not bad as in good)

i think that the watch is pure snide and only computer geeks and science nerds would want 1 to be ''hip'' and ''cool' amongst their friends

Nerdy as hell.



(Sorry, I'm not nearly hip enough to know what "rude" or "whack" mean outside of their definitions in the Oxford English Dictionary....... )

0 - 60 in 8 bit binary would be 00000000 - 00111100

Sorry yes I am that sad.

*sigh*

anyway this watch is worse...

clicky clicky



P.S. even though I understand binary wtf is the point of that watch?

picture this...


you are in a bar and the nicest, fittest lady in the place comes up and asks the time......she then sees you with your watch and a calculator trying to work out what time it is.......

1)..how much of a mongo do you look knowing that she was trying to get conversation going

2)..how much of a mongo do you feel when she relises that you are just a propper geek with a watch you cant even work

i would just get to argos and order a propper watch like a casio or a pulsar

Also Known As Mr. O or The Citrus 1

You could always say, "Stuff the time love, fancy a 3 x 20 + 10 - 1?"

Re: Cool or nerdy as hell?

You sure about that one Tif?
I assume you're trying to do a version of that joke:

There are only 10 types of people in this world, those who understand binary, and those who don't.

I think it would make an excellent tool for keeping the old mental arithmetic up to scratch what what!!!

Useless at telling the time in a hurry though. Imagine boiling a 3 minute egg!!! errr ummmmm, hang on, not sure if it's 3 minutes yet...... ummm, "Was that a hard boiled egg you wanted dear?"
