Stumbled across this on youtube today, and it's pretty fascinating.

Genie: You have ONE WISH.
Me: Alright, I have one, but it's very detailed.
Genie: As long as it is only one wish, you're allowed to spend as much time as you want detailing it.

— May i come in?
he asks. He’s carrying a bag overflowing with lines of codes.
— Do you really need all that?
i ask him, but before he gets the time to answer i notice three semis parked in the street, all sporting a flashing redhat logo.
