humor - off topic

This is an excerpt from a hysterically funny post forwarded to me - questions
about the internet

6.  What is "Flaming?"

    Along with an improvisational approach to floating point
    arithmetic, early Pentium chips were noted for generating heat.
    While some hackers speak fondly of roasting marshmallows over their
    first P60s, others found themselves badly singed as the chips
    caught fire.  This "flaming" sometimes occurred while the user was
    composing e-mail, resulting in poorly chosen or excessively
    vitriolic verbiage.
