Immanuel Kant was a real pissant
Who was very rarely stable
Heidegger, Heidegger was a boozy beggar
Who could think you under the table
David Hume could out-consume
Schopenhauer and Hegel
And Wittgenstein was a beery swine
Who was just as sloshed as Schlegel
There's nothing Nietzche couldn't teach ya
'Bout the raising of the wrist
Socrates, himself, was permanently pissed
John Stuart Mill, of his own free will
On half a pint of shandy was particularly ill
Plato, they say, could stick it away
Half a crate of whiskey every day
Aristotle, Aristotle was a bugger for the bottle
Hobbes was fond of his dram
And Rene Descartes was a drunken fart
"I drink, therefore I am"
Yes, Socrates, himself, is particularly missed
A lovely little thinker
But a bugger when he's pissed

An existential philosopher walks into an existential bar.
The barman says: "We're out of everything."
The philosopher says: "I'll have nothing, neat."
«While I complain of being able to see only a shadow of the past, I may be insensitive to reality as it is now, since I'm not at a stage of development where I'm capable of seeing it. A few hundred years later another traveler despairing as myself, may mourn the disappearance of what I may have seen, but failed to see.» Claude Levi-Strauss (Tristes Tropiques, 1955)</
The last three laptops that I bought (in 2005, 2011, and last year) were all HP products. They each served (and are serving) me long and well - my 2016 purchase is still going strong as a laptop, and my 2011 purchase is being used with a 24" screen as a desktop.
Could it be that their "business" models are less ruggedized than their "home" models?
If you have an important point to make, don't try to be subtle or clever. Use a pile driver. Hit the point once. Then come back and hit it again. Then hit it a third time - a tremendous whack.
I had an HP PC and a laptop. The PC was ridicolously overpriced: 700€ for a Pentium 4 when Core Duo were much more affordable, with a Korean motherboard produced by a company that failed after producing only that mobo (no other hardware) and a flimsy case and power supply.
The laptop died after a year, also ridicolously overpriced.
Before you start telling me: I did not buy them, my father did while insulting me and my knowledge when I tried to dissuade him.

"I controlled my laughter and simple said "No,I am very busy,so I can't write any code for you". The moment they heard this all the smiling face turned into a sad looking face and one of them farted. So I had to leave the place as soon as possible." - Mr.Prakash One Fine Saturday. 24/04/2004
