UPDATE: HEY MOTHER FUCKERS.
Before you comment to tell me how stupid this reason is and why it doesn’t hold up and how only makes me look like a fool, just don’t. I realize now that this post is terrible and that Neo wasn’t using Windows. I have no excuse for how pathetic this is, it’s hard for me to sleep at night when I think about it. However, I’ve decided to still keep it up to highlight my stupidity. So before you comment “OMG YOUR WRONG FAGGOT” just know that I already know. Or still leave a comment, I can take it, but just know that it will make me hate you. And I’ll cry.
Early on in the first movie, Neo is fast asleep while running some strange search program on the Matrix or Morpheus or something. I gotta give him credit for listening to Massive Attack, but for being a leet haxzor, he really fucks this scene up.
For those of you who are either old or idiots, here are some Windows shortcut tips:
CTRL+C = Copy
CTRL+X = Cut
CTRL+V = Paste
Get it? Good. Now, in this scene, Trinity is making contact with Neo with some crazy Matrix who knows how the fuck it works hack. She takes over his machine and writes “The Matrix has you…” Then the eerie music starts and the mood is set, this is fucked up. So, Neo being the computer expert/hacker/whateverthefuckyouwannacallit, decides to press CTRL+X before anything else.
I couldn’t be making this shit up. Why the hell would the first thing he try to do be CUT the text from the screen?! This makes no fucking sense. It’s obvious the writers were attempting to make it look like he was trying to CLOSE whatever program was open. How do I know this? The next scene he pushes the ESC button.
Not only that, it only makes sense for him to try and be closing or canceling the program.
Now now now, before you go all ghetto on my ass, I know keystrokes used to mean different things. However, well, I’ll just let Wikipedia do the talking for me: “This command was used in the beginning of the film “The Matrix”, when Neo is trying to get rid of a screen that he does not understand. This however would be completely useless in this situation. The proper key combination if Neo was running a Unix based system would be Ctrl-C.”
So there, fuck you, this is a completely pointless keystroke to press. Some hacker he is. Maybe Neo was really tired. Maybe it was just a simple mistake. Or maybe this is just another reason why the Matrix sucks.
HEY BITCH, DID YOU READ THE UPDATE AT THE TOP? DON’T LEAVE A COMMENT, YOU CUNT.
