    Some Valid Linux Commands


    A friend showed me this list on AIM last night. These are all valid Linux commands (on Gentoo anyway):

    Code:
    updatedb
    locate
    talk
    date
    cd
    strip
    look
    touch
    finger
    unzip
    uptime
    gawk
    head
    emerge --oneshot condom
    mount
    fsck
    gasp
    more
    yes
    yes
    yes
    more
    umount
    emerge -C condom
    make clean
    sleep
    I laughed.


    EDIT:

    Yes, to clarify, read the list as a whole. It's like a story .

    And I was agreeing with you and was adding to your list :P

    However, now that I actually woke up, I see the whole point Read the list as a whole... It is nice & funny

    What I still like the most is this: less is more .

    Less = more
