Fun Friday

Just yesterday we saw that the Pingdom blog posted an article titled “When Geeks and Graffiti Combine.” It was a collection of graffiti that was, well, geeky. Their collection included some funny designs definitely worth taking a look at. Their article gave me the idea to search the Internet to find more geeky graffiti which I found plenty of.  Today’s fun Friday is simply a collection of what I found, and of course I included a couple of my favorites from Pingdom. Click to enlarge the images below…

  1. Haha…”loading please wait”. Funny

  2. Que buena. Link esta genial.

  3. Very good! I like the zelda and arcade graffiti pretty good looking and great artwork

  4. it spells AMOR not love

  5. AMOR = LOVE in portuguese

  6. So which is geekier? The geek who graffiti’d “Love” in binary, or the geek who figured out that it really says “Amor”, or the geek that felt the need to translate and show that the original post was correct? I feel much 01000001 01001101 01001111 01010010 for the internet.

  7. Amor was actually originally Latin and was kept in most romance languages including Italian, Portugese, Romanian (as was mentioned), and Spanish. It is also in some other languages as well, such as Icelandic, though it is considered archaic. In other languages, such as Croatian, it takes on a slightly different meaning of Cupid.

    So I guess the bottom line is that Amor does mean love…

    thats the funniest comment ive ever read and i couldnt agree more.

  10. 01010011 01100001 01101101

    First off, 01001100 01101111 01110110 01100101 is spelled that way in Binary. That spells AMOR up in that picture. The only thing is was the Graffiti artist not speaking English (I know he or she wasn’t, I know that it’s binary, but you know what I mean)because isn’t that love in Italian, or is that Amoire? And the “Loading Please Wait…” part is hysterical for a second there I thought that it was a game or something loading… ahh… optical illusions coming from the gamer geek who plays WAY TOO many RPG’s and skating games. 01101100 01101111 01101100
    :lol: :)
