  1. I say the reference is from Eddie Izzard – "What, I deleted the internet? But I don't even own a modem!" (For you youngsters "Modem" is a device to connect to the internet at the speed of 56,000 Baud. For "Baud" see "Baud")

  3. Can we invent a 9th group for people like Paul K.? Or maybe a subset of "The Human Tutorial"?:

    The Know-All Know-Nothing

    – You know, the person that lectures you on technology when you didn't even ask for it, getting everything completely wrong, when you already know the actual correct details anyway.

    Modems are still in wide use today (DSL modem/routers are still modems), most people actually know this, yet Paul K. seems to be the only person not to! See: modem.

    Unless it was a bad attempt at humour?

  4. I'm crying because people don't know what a modem is.

    Jesus, I only got connected in 2002 and I know what a modem is.

  6. You forgot the 9th group. The owners of Apple Macs/Macbooks, iPhones and iPads…

    It's the smugness and delusions.

  9. I'm pretty sure the comic reference is Mike Birbiglia, tho I do indeed love Eddie Izzard. He is quite the funny professional transvestite.

  11. #2 is win. And to all those that bother #2's while they OBVIOUSLY DON'T WANT TO HEAR WHAT YOU WANT TO SAY (HENCE THE HEADPHONES), GO DIE IN A FIRE.

  13. My headphones are a self defense against audiable abuse.

    I'm on the bus for 1hr with kids swaering constantly from the back seat, loud enough you can hear them at the front. Or talking about how x is a and how everyone hates her so much…

    Or the charity people who molest you in the street, knowing its a recession but not understanding 'I have no money to spare'

    If you see the headphones, no im not listening. Thats kinda the point of them. Go ask someone with their ears open.
