Today, my dad woke me up in a panic at five to ten in the morning, because he couldn't figure out how to type the "@" in an e-mail address. FML

  • Haha, what a fucking noob! It couldn't be much easier: you disconnect your keyboard, stick two paper clips into the USB port touching the left and right data pins, attach the chain of resistors to one clip, touch the negative terminal of a double A battery to the other, and then connect the open resistor end to the positive terminal of the battery for exactly 500 milliseconds. The processor interprets that electrical pulse as a few keystrokes, and before you know it, you have three @ symbols. Then you delete the two you don't need. Hahaha, I still can't get over how ignorant your father is, OP!
