If you are sitting next to someone who irritates you on a plane or train..

1. Quietly and calmly open up your laptop case.
2. Remove your laptop.
3. Boot it.
4. Make sure the person who won’t leave you alone can see the screen.
5. Open your email client to this message.
6. Close your eyes and tilt your head up to the sky.
7. Then hit this link: http://www.thecleverest.com/countdown.swf

Take note: Please take it a joke, it is a joke and has absolutely no evil intent. Peace to the world!

Do not try this, we are strongly against it - In real life, might get you in some legal issues!

The arabic on that page is just random gibberish...

It's a fucking joke you literal fucks!

Anonymous said...

Well c'mon, atleast on the plane you can ~
Some planes got WiFi on'em you know ~!

Also the Arabic written there can be read but the problem is that its from Left to Right and it seems to be translated via google translate or something !

Anonymous said...

Wow, I'm pretty sure that it says not to do it because you might get into some legal issues. Its also not hard to download the .swf file and keep it.


Some people are just dumb.

You don't have internet on trains over there?

GarbageMan said...

The swf file can be stored on the hard disk buddy ... (I still don't recommend actually doin that though :) ) ..

what are they going to do say "OH YOU HAVE A STOPWATCH" and arrest you?

Anonymous said...

Yeah, because bombs are like the movies, with big red countdowns.

Anonymous said...

no, they'll just detain you without charge for an indeterminate amount of time, possibly torturing you for information if you end up in guantanamo bay. seriously stupid idea. funny, but stupid.

No need to go that far. Just get a nice Aqua Teen Hunger Force wallpaper and watch 'em go nuts.

I am taking it for what it is.... a joke, very funny!

you dont need internet you fools, you can just download the .swf idiots

The arabic is indeed busted, it uses "individiual" rendering of the letters for each letter as opposed to the correct forms for beginning, medial and end.

Anonymous said...

Let's see here...

In the time people took to respond that you don't have Internet on a plane or other commuter vehicle I was able to

1. Download the file via RIGHT CLICKING and SAVING THE LINK
2. Opening the file on a web browser

Must be so hard to download.

Honestly, I think that this would be funny as shit to do on a plane if you had someone irrating you but alas with so much fear being put on us by our government I can see this landing you in a ton of legal trouble

Wicked said...

"that's dumb, you don't have internet on a plane or train."

You're right, good deduction skills. Although, you could always try the... "Save page as..." button.

airdoo said...

put it on something like flyertlak or other frequent flier community lol

Anonymous said...

hah hah, I get it... you're using someone elses paranoia and fear for your own entertainment.

good times, good times...

what would be really funny is if the second you opened this on the plane, a real hijacker got up and proceeded to show a bomb or something of the sort lol

I just registered on digg less than 2 minutes ago and was drawn to the "If you are sitting..." post.
The overwhelming percentage of responces indicate that for the most part, digg members are critical, humorless, butt wipes. Now how do I unregister?

butch3r said...

Disturbing the peace is a violation, and the whole point of the stopwatch thing is for the idea of a bombscare - there is no other reason to l0oad the swf on the place. So, yeah, whoever did that woul probably be send to Guantanamo. Have fun over there.

God said...

you dont even need the internet... you can just download the .swf and open it in the browser.

Anonymous said...

I love how people assume that when others say "there's no internet on planes" they are talking about accessing the file as opposed to the person sitting next to you noticing that you're accessing it without a connection.

And people...it's been said enough, it's a joke, let it be...

Anonymous said...

after i read this..i realized the sickening irony: that YOURE the irritating one, to even think of fucking with someones mind like this. the only defense you have is that "it's a joke". funny how laughter is the preferred defense of the insecure.

GarbageMan said...

Cindy,

The guys posting such stuff are also diggers ... u'll find all sorts of people everywhere ..

Shatterpulse said...

thats hilarious. I wanna try that.

Anonymous said...

The arabic is indeed arabic, except that it's backwards (it should read right to left) and individual letters are displayed rather than the joined up style that is normal.

If I read it backwards it says:
Egyptian (as in maybe egyptian newspapers or reports - its missing a word before it), [reported] that the security forces exchanged (..again missing words don't make clear what was exchanged)

@cindy: get the fuck off of digg. if you can't take a little joke, stay inside your house and lock yourself in a closet so we don't have to deal with you. furthermore, you should be punched in the face for saying, "Butt wipe".

If they're already an irritating person, you can be certain they'll be 5 times the asshole to flag down the crew and watch you get cuffed.

Anonymous said...

laughed my ass off. yeah, you know it's 2007 if jokes like that one go around.

btw, look up "joke" on wikipedia. it's serious business. jokes are not only meant to entertain, they are also meant to educate: that everyone is scared deeply about arab extremists, that officials would take this joke dead serious, this is the reason why this joke actually works.

do you like the face in the mirror?

You americans are a bunch of dumb fucks!
1st: its a joke!
2nd: nothing illegal is being done
3rd: you'd have to be stupid to actually try doing it
4th: you'd think that people posting here and checking this regularly are smart, cultured and educated people... but I guess thats a wrong assumption.

Peace!

Haha i think this is funny. it would be especially hilarious if you were going to iowa or something. i'm pretty confident you couldnt get in trouble for implying anything on a trip to the middle of nowhere. the people that would actually get scared of something like this are who i want to meet. is it really very intelligent to feel fear of a 10 second count down?

Next time, just pull out the throbbing memeber and start stroking. That's what I do.

how many times can we post about how "you don't have the net on planes" "all you have to do is save it" or "you could get in trouble" and all this other shit, here i'll go ahead and add to the melee, people are fucking sheep, and yes i'm one as well, but hey i thought the joke was damn funny, specially if when you did it you tried to turn so you could face whatever temple it is that you face while praying when ur islamic....

Just see how lucky people are that dont have to live in "The United States of The Assholes"! What is next, if you pass gas on a plane are you going to be arrested for biological terrorism ?
Shit how you poor fucking americans are ignorant!

Anonymous said...

we'll see who's laughing last when they're sitting in guantanamo... wake up, the stupid Bush govt. doesn't need shit now to detain you for whatever reason for however long they want.

everyone who thinks it's "funny" is simply an idiot

Anonymous said...

Haha, genius....

Oh, guess im an idiot....

Personally, I just fire up some really hard-core horror. Dawn of the Dead (or any of Romero's "...of the Dead" films).

No need to get arrested or anything. Best one was the time that this woman wouldn't control her son. I made sure he got an extra dose. Must've watched the mall disembowlment scene about ten times. Kid probably paid her back with nightmares for a week, based on how wide-eyed he got.

How is it to live in the US now a days, a state full of paranoia and fear, if you cant say a joke or have some harmless fun on a flight with out getting arrested or taken in for interregation suspected of being a terrorist? I remember once a flight had to make a emergency landing in the states, some passangers heard som "not white" men talking together in a foreign tonge going through papers with helecopters and plains on them, everybody panic´t and the were arrested when the plane landed, these guys were from Israely special forces on there way to train US marines. How paranoid can people be???? A word to all american´s,, get your head out of your ass, try to get some sense in to you head. Only in the United States of the Assholes are folks behaving like this, else were (other countrys) people have something call´d "common sense" try to find some........... Assholes

frenner said...

I can do this here. No problem. Because I do not live in America. This just show how much freedom you have today in America.

In case you don't already know, there's no need to worry about Osama wanting to take away your freedoms and way of life. The neo-cons already did.

Anonymous said...

Hehe these stupid Americans, shitting them selfs with fear :) Watch out, Bin Laden is coming to get you! :)

Ohh how nice it would be if there were no USA and specialy no G.W. Bush, then we would have peace in the world. Let´s put our hends together and clean the world of the scum ( mostly the republicans) of the face of the earth, all together now.
P.s. if all goes well we can clean Israel 2 :) Peace to all

But you can'[t get internet on planes, on trains, or anywhere. i can't even see it, or this page, or even post this because there is no such thing as an internet.

i hope all of you are arrested, and charged with everything.

Well, with all the other over the top silly responses i thought i may as well join in...

Anonymous said...

In light of recent world events, really would not be a funny joke on a plane filled with people. Not a joke when you could possibly strike panic in someone (or many). This, while being somewhat clever, is better left as satire- left on the ground and not downloaded for your in flight entertainment.

Old Redliner said...

Why did the chicken cross the road?

To get to the other side.

"Thats stupid, chickens don't consciously decide such things."

"I'm telling Peta on you for endangering animals, you sick bastard!"

"Stupid Americans, you think chickens can think!"

"Why pick on chickens? you CHICKEN_RACIST bastard!"

"I don't get it."

"Chickens don't like roads, and you don't even specify which road, this is completely untrue."

The original joke is far overshadowed by how hilariously pathetic you people are. Cheers!

Anonymous said...

Legal problems? Stuff like that could get you shot.

And yes, I get that it's a joke. And yes, I think it's pretty funny. Just remember we live in a monkey-see-monkey-do society. The dumber the idea, the more likely some retard is gonna try it (and have his buddy film it and put it on the internet).

You & I may get a good chuckle (and the gene pool a good scrubbing) as they scrape his pulpy face out of his laptop - but you wouldn't want that I your conscience. Remember, there's still 30% of the American public that supports Bush. That's a lot of dumb people who'll believe anything - be careful!

I tell you what. All the people who say Americans are all in living in Fear? I sure as hell am not. Come live here and see for yourself that 90% of the population are least affected by it in their daily lives. And by "cleaning the world of scum" do you mean something about genocide of an entire country? Sounds a little Hitler'ish to me. Seems to me that if I ever got to know who you were, talking like that, I'd certainly arrange a meeting between you and God to discuss that one. Fucking foreign bastards.

"I'd certainly arrange a meeting between you and God to discuss that one. Fucking foreign bastards."

Have you forgotten that you dont have to look back far as around 1800 that the poor and the scum of Europa left to start a better life in the new country (USA) and from that came the nation that you are now, you are all originaly from another country, so you cant call others "foreign". A nation blended with nearly every other nation is not good, specialy if you try to control everyone else, and get pisst off if others diside to live by other logic them you. Shame on you. The only real Americans are the Indians, but you did a hellof a good job with that "genocide", and you calld it "getting the land back from the red man" Shame on you all,you dont even regrett it!

Yes but anyone was stupid enough to try it and get arrested, there would be one less idiot running around.

Horray for natural selection!
