6. Who says hackers don't use drugs? Caffeine! Caffeine! Caffeine!
5. Mom wouldn't approve. Then again, she might be one too.
4. It's very possible to LOSE yourself into either one for DAYS on end.
3. Both activities tend to make people thinner (and less healthy)
2. Ever been to a hacker convention? We have a lot to learn!
1. Fractals!
