Penetration Testing and Vulnerability Analysis - Home How To Become A Hacker Copyright © 2001 Eric S. Raymond As editor of the Jargon File and author of a few other well-known documents of similar nature, I often get email requests from enthusiastic network newbies asking (in effect) "how can I learn to be a wizardly hacker?". Back in 1996 I noticed that there didn't seem to be any other FAQs or web documents that addressed this vital question, so I started this one. A lot of hackers now consider it definitive, and I suppose that means it is. Still, I don't claim to be the exclusive authority on this topic; if you don't like what you read here, write your own.

Litemind Photojournal: NASA's Image Access Home Page Did you know Why Is No One Interested in Vagina Size? -- Science of Us It’s no secret: We are obsessed with penis and testicle size. Lately, we’re especially fond of evolutionary explanations for why penises and testicles are as large as they are, and why they’re shaped the way they’re shaped. It’s an obsession that extends from the ivory towers of academia on down. You’ve probably seen the articles by now. They follow a similar pattern in which penis size — often girth, rather than length — is an arms race in which the biggest or most innovatively shaped penis wins the evolutionary prize of passing on its owner’s genes to the next generation. A favorite explanation for the big phallus is female mate choice — that females selectively make babies with males who have larger and, presumably, more pleasurable semen-delivery devices. Another explanation is male competition. All this is, admittedly, terribly fun to write about, and I’m not even going nuts (gah) like journalists and researchers do in their endless, gleeful coverage of the subject.
