  • Humor: Rod Johnson & "Self-Defense Against Knife Attacks"

    Disclaimer: this post is most likely 100% not suited for the "Announcements" forum; however, since there is no appropriate place for Spring related humor, I've decided to post it here anyway. Having said that...


    I just received the most bizarre book recommendation from Amazon.de. Here's an excerpt from it:

    Liebe Kundin, lieber Kunde!

    Wir haben festgestellt, dass Kunden, die Interesse an Büchern von Rod Johnson gezeigt haben, "Self-Defense Against Knife Attacks" von Christian Braun bestellt haben. Daher möchten wir Sie darüber informieren, dass Self-Defense Against Knife Attacks von Christian Braun in Kürze erscheinen wird. Bestellen Sie jetzt Ihr Exemplar vor!
    That translates to:

    Dear customer!

    We've noticed that customers who have shown an interest in books from Rod Johnson have also ordered "Self-Defense Against Knife Attacks" by Christian Braun. Therefore, we would like to inform you that "Self-Defense Against Knife Attacks" by Christian Braun will soon be available. Order your copy today!
    Coincidence?

    @Rod: have you been giving seminars on best practices in self-defense as a hobby on the side?

    cheers,

    Sam

    This is hilarious. Sometimes threads on the ServerSide can get pretty robust, but so far no physical weapons have been used, as far as I know...

      I guess I got an indirect answer to my assumption, since the thread got moved to the "Meta" forum. I thought it had simply gotten deleted. Thanks to whoever moved it for me.

      I'm glad you got a laugh out of it.

      cheers,

        Only just seen this, it's genius. More importantly Sam, did you buy the book just in case . I guess I didn't fully understand the concept of "Extreme Programming", glad of the warning.

          Yeah, and remember an agile process is your friend when working with those "extreme programmers".

            Now I understand all those subliminal messages that are being thrown at us. Agile, Extreme Programming, Defensive Programming,......... hmmm I wonder .
