Associate with well-mannered persons and your manners will improve.
Run with decent folk and your own decent instincts will be
strengthened. Keep the company of bums and you will become a bum.
Hang around with rich people and you will end by picking up the check
and dying broke.

At first, I just did it on weekends. With a few friends, you know...
We never wanted to hurt anyone. The girls loved it. We'd all sit
around the computer and do a little UNIX. It was just a kick. At
least that's what we thought. Then it got worse.
It got so I'd have to do some UNIX during the weekdays. After a
while, I couldn't even wake up in the morning without having that
crave to go do UNIX. Then it started affecting my job. I would just
have to do it during my break. Maybe a `grep' or two, maybe a little
`more'. I eventually started doing UNIX just to get through the day.
Of course, it screwed up my mind so much that I couldn't even
function as a normal person.
I'm lucky today, I've overcome my UNIX problem. It wasn't easy. If
you're smart, just don't start. Remember, if any weirdo offers you
Just Say No!
